Re: “The Arkansaurus dinosaur is officially official

Rebecca Hunt-Foster, the scientist (and native Arkansan) who did the work and wrote the paper, presented this at the Geological Society of America meeting held in Little Rock March 12. In addition, Celina Suarez, a paleontologist at UA Fayetteville, reported on the discovery of bones and teeth from a titanosaur (probably Sauroposiedon), an ankylosaur, and the theropod dinosaurs Acrocanthosaurus (large predatory dinosaur), Deinonychus (bigger version of velociraptor) and Ricardoestia. Arkansaurus is no longer the only dinosaur found in Arkansas. It is unfortunate that the press did not cover it. This doesn't even count the thousands of dinosaur tracks that have been found here.

Re: “Legislators plan to combat State Board decision on PARCC vs. ACT debate

Mr. Hardy,
I am not sure what educators you have talked with, but most of the educators I know prefer the PARCC test over the ACT test. The ACT test continues the poor measure of testing isolated, memorized facts, whereas the PARCC is designed to test conceptual understanding and critical thinking skills. I can therefore understand why our legislature is against it, but most educators think that is the way we should go.

Re: “Jack Wagoner answers: Why should Arkansas's ban on same-sex marriage be ruled unconstitutional?

Citizen1, no one is forcing you to celebrate anything. They are only saying you don't have the right to tell others how to live. No, there is nothing in the constitution that says you have freedom from other people not believing your religious views. The constitution forbids the government from forcing people to follow a single religion, including yours. Would you prefer the government to enforce a religion, say Islam or Satanism? No? Then keep your religion out of government. No one is forcing you to live down the street from something you don't like. You are free to move, thereby making the neighborhood a better place.
