Re: “The open line, Wednesday news headlines and Bret Bielema's property tax

Citizen, as recently as last year, WIC still had printed "checks" that you had to go pick up every three months or so. I believe SNAP is done via a swipe card.

Re: “Open Line: Boozman, Koch brothers, Pryor

I agree, beer. I did some work that brought me to a Head Start preschool (housed in a local elementary school) a few mornings per week during this past school year. I raised my eyebrows when I realized the kids were eating things like Froot Loops and cinnamon toast for breakfast.

Re: “In case you are wondering ...

The Arkansas Times mustremain solvent to continue operations, just as any business. Since this blog is a service provided free to consumers, revenues must come from ad sources. The other alternative is to lay off staff. I, personally, am OK with the in-stream ads as long as the continue to be clearly marked.

Re: “As the Tech Park turns: Who's in charge?

It occurred to me today that for-profit development projects often have to "pre-lease" a certain amount of space to receive financing. Has the city begun to pre-lease space for this tech park to ensure the facility will not sit vacant?

Re: “As the Tech Park turns: Who's in charge?

What I think is interesting is that according to current community/economic development theory, there is a growing trend toward density in downtown areas, etc. rather than putting office space out by itself. The tech park would actually be more attractive in the location near the Rivermarket because of the amount of restaurants, etc., within a walking distance.

Re: “Petrino exchanged 200 texts with Repub bikini model UPDATE

Has anyone come across the one where Alison has McCain 08 bumper stickers covering her hoo-hahs? It's a classic.

Re: “Lawsuit filed over suspension of 5-year-old for F-word

SHolmes, did you read the father's statement?

"We're not denying he said it, we're not denying that the school should've taken some action, but they turned a simple teachable moment into a punishing moment."

I think he is not wanting the issue ignored, but did not feel it was handled appropriately.
