  • Outsourcing state government

    As a citizen, I don't get to choose not to pay taxes because I don't like what the Arkansas state government is spending state and federal money on, such as paying a Chinese company, Sun Paper, approximately $1 billion to build a paper mill in Clark County.

Re: “Tastes right

'Diogenes - I'm glad you've had good meals there. However on Saturday May 28th 2011 that was our experience.'

Re: “Tastes right

I do not recognize the BN the review describes. The BN I recognize, food is good, the staff attentive without being intrusive, kitchen accommodates requests, wine list offers reasonably priced selections. The deck wows out of town guests- the bald eagles often appear as if on cue. The location is not Chenal, but that is a plus for some.

Re: “Governor touts $175 million reduction in Medicaid spending last fiscal year

Where do Medicaid $$ spend. Drs office, Hospital, pharmacy. Who the spends those dollars? Arkansans. The multiplier effect locally of Medicaid is estimated 4 fold. Saving money is fine if is truly saving. An axe or a vise are not instruments of stewardship.

Re: “Eclipse-o-rama underway

Just returned from Totality in Missouri. The total is experienced instead of seen. Temp drops precipitously, very odd light- no direct sun, only that diffused by the moon, 240,000 miles away. Different from twilight, cloudy day, unique. The corona, around an inkblack sphere.
In 2 minutes 14 seconds the climate changed. How puny is a man who thinks the planet cannot be messed with.
I am ready for April 8,2024, Lord willing.
