  • The LR chamber does the public's business. Is it accountable? Blue Hog on the case.

    Matt Campbell, lawyer and Blue Hog Report blogger, has sent a Freedom of Information Act request to Jay Chessir, director of the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce, and Mayor Mark Stodola related to the publicity stunt yesterday  built around withdrawing from the mayor's rash pronouncement that the city would seek an Amazon HQ2 project even though the city  didn't meet the company's criteria.

Re: “The LR chamber does the public's business. Is it accountable? Blue Hog on the case.

I agree it's as if we are on a plantation, always had from the minority perspective. The tendency of overseers to make decisions for you and tell you how things are going to be and how you should feel about it exudes from the City Board doors. Granite Mountain Neighborhood Resident.

Re: “Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

Sure wish we could have kept our Icon Horace Mann then our Senior High School on the side of town we live in but to the victors go the spoils of determining how everyone lives and what is important. Congratulations to the Little Rock 9 and all those experimental students bussed to schools while the flight went to West Little Rock and continues its re-segregation today. Central sits in a Food Desert surrounded by communities left under and undeveloped where are no jobs without a 2 bus almost hour ride to the other side of town. Congratulations!

Re: “Congressman Steve Womack: Patriot or Sycophant?

Must be one of those 'fine people' in opposition to the removal of communities' monuments even after they make their decision.

Re: “Motion in school case suggests Pulaski school case solution, including new district boundaries

I know that having our neighborhood divided by which side of Hwy 365 South/Springer Blvd. is only a problem for families. The further West old Central High alum moved after so-called integration the smaller Little Rock south of the Airport and Clinton Library has become. The majority Black LRSD School Board had the same affect Pres. Obama's presidency had on this country -the pendulum has swung to the extreme right. Perhaps some adults could use some education to put into perspective the real history of this country and the world placing non-Whites back in their respective places thereby eliminating the imagined curse of servitude devised to rule the people and thereby this world, since it is not working.

Re: “Freeway wreckage, dramatically illustrated

The way it was, great I am sure, may not be better for all but more thought should be given this and many a decision made by our Governor, the Mayor, City Manager, At-Large Directors, Directors and whoever else determines how the lives of people who live in these areas are to be transformed. Making a lower income is no reason to be left out of decision making as is becoming more common place in whatever party you are in. The old side of this original city is being swept into Fouche Creek, except for Central High and the Governor's neighborhood. It has become a food desert with no investment or development. I-430 and Roosevelt Intersection could maintain a business corridor vital enough to employee many people who live in the area but instead one must pay as much to get to the Benton or McCain areas for work. Maybe It is time to refurbish not only the highways but how our democracy represents each voter from school board elections to mayor and president.
