Downtown Tech 

The Pulaski Tech Board of Trustees Tuesday decided they couldn't afford to locate a new facility for its culinary and hospitality school downtown.

But some talk immediately emerged of another potential Pulaski Tech project. It's mostly out in the ozone right now, but it goes something like this:

Pulaski Tech and UALR could join forces on a downtown facility geared at providing college courses to downtown workers. A secretary, for example, could schedule a lunch hour three days a week to get college credit — toward a degree, toward a new degree, toward current job skills.

Talk about this is serious. It includes some private interests with the wherewithall to make things happen. Just scribble it down for the future.

  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.

  • All in the family

    Old habits die hard. We may have a new Republican majority in the legislature, but like the old Democratic majority, it still doesn't hurt to have a lawmaker spouse to land a part-time job during the legislative session.

  • 'Circuit breaker' legal

    When we first asked Gov. Mike Beebe about the "circuit breaker" idea out of Arizona (automatically opting out of Medicaid expansion if the feds reduce the matching rates in the future), he said it was fine but noted that states can already opt out at any time, an assurance he got in writing from the feds.

  • Church goes to school in Conway

    An interesting controversy is brewing in Conway Public Schools, periodically a scene of discord as more liberal constituents object to the heavy dose of religion that powerful local churches have tried to inject into the schools, particularly in sex education short on science and long on abstinence.
