  • The coal industry's attorney general: Leslie Rutledge and others

    Take a minute and read Ernest Dumas' column this week. It explains who Attorney General Leslie Rutledge is really representing when she fights EPA clean air rules — railroads and coal miners. Dumas explains the history of regulation of coal-burning power plants — Arkansas is home to two of the dirtiest — and also explains why fixing them or looking for alternative energy supplies closer to home is actually good for the economy, not bad.

Re: “History of lynching: Arkansas lands atop another bad list

Todd your research is good. I did my own when some people were still living who remembered it. Thanks for contributing.

Re: “Asa Hutchinson in full triangulating mode

Asa is flip flopping, but he is still same old Asa, still unable to get over 50%, and he has been on the ballot how many times since 1986? So the undecideds -- who just now are beginning to pay attention -- are looking for a reason to vote for Mike Ross and last night -- at the end -- those undecideds watching decided they liked Mike when he told the false teeth story. Even the Republicans in the audience thought it was funny and broke the partisan BS and laughed. His personality broke through, and he connected. Asa a front runner? Only once in his career has he ever been that, and it was up there where his church runs all the elections. So people are waiting to find that reason to vote for Mike. Last night many of them found that comfort level. If that continues, Mike will peak just at the right time.

Re: “Harrison, Ark., embarrasses itself again by refusing visit by delegation from Ghana

I am proud that my town of Helena was the first city in Arkansas to have a sister-city on the African Continent. Helena's Sister City is Moshi, Tanzania. It is the main city at the base of Kilimanjaro. Sub-Sahara Africa includes some of the fastest growing economies in the world according to a former Ambassador to Tanzania and Native of Helena, Brady Anderson.
