Re: “Sports spending in Arkansas

There are some glaring contrasts in this data. I started wondering how much schools spend on things like uniforms, clearly an athletic expense, I'd think. So what category would that fall under? Supplies and materials? Boy, that's where the contrast comes in. Bentonville spends $203,738. Sounds about right. But in the same category Cabot spends $1769. Even little Huntsville, right below Cabot on the chart, spends $22,808. Clearly still different reporting practices. Can anyone with knowledge of school finance explain this?

Re: “Beebe mayor has God's back

Mike must not have made many Beebe High School football home games over the last few years. Beebe Schools still thumbs its nose at Supreme Court rulings by having prayer over the loudspeaker at home games and by conducting baccalaureate in conjuction with graduation every year, though I hear that the baccalaureate is increasingly sparsely attended. It seems to me that a school concerned with making good citizens of its students would make a point of honoring Supreme Court rulings, absent any kind of formal objection.
