  • Mark Darr warns of dependency on government. Really.

    Since even most Republicans say Lt. Gov. Mark Darr's political career has likely topped out at his current not-so-rarified level, I offer this mostly for comic relief.

  • Smoking on Main in Maduro

    Asked if the "cigar bar" name is a stigma to overcome, Michael Peace, owner and general manager of Maduro Cigar Bar & Lounge, doesn't hesitate to say yes.

Re: “Tech park tango, part 1

I'd like to see Barrow Rd get the park but I know it's a real long shot. My 2nd choice would be downtown. Honestly the boldest move would be to have the U of A pay some type of lease breaking fee, go ahead and move the games to Fayetteville, and use the current war memorial stadium site in return for a joint U of A/Ualr program in cutting edge tech, research and development. This would provide the occupancy and the funds b/c those institutions have endowments and are also funded by the state so the $$ is guaranteed by the taxpayer. This kind of power partner may be the push that the other partners need to make the financial commitment. Honestly if Little Rock is ever going to be what it can be ( the most valuable small city in America) we're going to have to pay for it.
