Re: “SWEPCO signs wind power deal

I wonder what the cost per kilowatt is for the wind energy?

Re: “The speaking continues

No, i'm not Mark Stodola. Just someone who reads this blog occasionally and decided to put a little balance into the mix. I don't like everything about the two proposals. But this city is falling behind and we need to take action to turn things around.

Re: “City Board puts sales tax on ballot

The additional revenue is much needed. While other communities around us have had 1.5 to 3.0 cent city sales tax for many years, LR has been making do with 0.5 cents. It is about time to turn around our slow and steady decline. This pair of sales taxes is our chance to take a positive step forward.

Re: “The speaking continues

I've read through all of the detailed allocations of the operations tax and the capital tax...while I don't agree with every allocation, it is well balanced and will help move LR closer to some of the more successful cities that have a much higher sales tax rate than LR. I hope it all gets approved tonight. Great leadership during tough times from our Mayor.

Re: “Little Rock tax vote tonight

Excellent posts Reidsmom and Wrecker . Finally some voices of reason. The initial investment in the port has created several thousand jobs. Hopefully UAMS and UALR can help lead the research park to the same level of success. It could greatly influence the future vitality of our city.
