Re: “Fred Poe dies traveling at 81

In my formative years I lived on Ridgeway. 4 houses from Fred. I remember him as funny , talkative and very imaginative . He delighted in wild tales of fantasy. He was playing the piano by age three. He was good . I enjoyed his tall tales of exotic places . After reading about a great city he imagined himself there. With wry humor and a wink he made it all very real to us kids . His mind explored locales long before his body arrived there .Billy Brown , Dickie Witherspoon , Gail Witherspoon, Dave Grundfest were all in the clan . We teased him unmercifully as only kids can do . The rascal thrived on teasing. He frequently turned the tables on us . We all liked him even though we thought he was a nut . A good nut. I am sad he is gone . He made the world a better place.

Re: “State Rep. Mary Bentley threatens Game and Fish funding in encounter with wildlife officer

Nothing brings as much joy to the soul as righteous indignation . Think , " Nancy Grace " . Some of the forrestry - G&F officers dont realize how arbitrary some of the ATV -Baiting rules are . The Ouachita forest is a National Forest , not State . The forest is intended to be a mullti use treasure . Agencies can draft draconian rules disenguinous to public use and pleasure . Is the person going to hunt over the bait or is the salt lick to promote the health of the deer poplation...overpopulation . A pick up may use a forest road that is closed to ATV use . Stang logic . Most officers are fair reasonable people . A few are asses . I have witnssed one throw a fit regarding ATVs at a public meeting . Our forest are for multiple use ......a yearly brochue clearly stating the rules should be provided ..with a sound reason for a rule . The Ouachita belongs to all of us . We all own this land . An explanation , brochure and friendly warning would suffice in most cases . I wonder , was Mr Bently targeted ? Was this politically motivated ? The entire thong could all be perfectly innocent . I never hunt but I place salt licks beside my home . I enjoy photographing our wild life .

Re: “Ben Carson takes the stage in Little Rock

Someone has lost sight of a basic truth here . This physician is brilliant . Harvard graduate with honors . Chief pediatric neurosurgery Johns Hopkins . Non physicians have limited insight into the brilliance , dedication , integrity and compassion required . He specializes in hemi-spherectomy on infants. He has saved the lives of many children thus preserving families . The intensity , thought , skill and study for every procedure performed is beyond immense . The loss of an infant ( this happens in a high risk field ) is crushing .
Is he versed on politics , history , geo economics , and dishonesty ? I would bet on the first three ( by nature he has an unbrideled curiosity ) . Dishonesty is deadly in all medical fields.
This man is exceptionally qualified . He has proven dedication to purpose . He is honored by his colleagues . He may be naive a short time . He is a quick learner . There is no one else out there approaching his stature .
Any comment regarding this mans' color is ludicrous !
