Re: “Lawsuit filed to stop hog feeding operation in Buffalo River watershed

Who is on the hook for the construction costs of the operation if the loan guarantees are stripped: Cargill or the family under contract? The article doesn't say, does it?

Re: “Photo essay: A hog farm for the Buffalo River watershed

This is a sensitive issue, in that it, once again, pits the environmental concerns (from the comments I've read, voiced largely by those who don't reside in the area) against the economic prospects of one of the poorest areas of the state. Has anyone seen the projected economic impact on the area from the proposed hog farm versus the current numbers for tourism and such? I'm curious.

And Louie couldn't be more right.

Re: “AT&T gets its welfare payment

RC, the reception was decorous, which was to be expected since many of the council members are representatives of the various telecommunications providers and ISPs. I've heard nothing further since the January meeting, though.

Re: “AT&T gets its welfare payment

Act 385, which created the Arkansas High Cost Fund, was approved in March 2007. So, for the past four years, Arkansans in areas such as Searcy County who have requested broadband for their homes or businesses but were denied because they live or work in rural areas have been paying into a state-administered fund with the mandate of bringing broadband to rural areas. Irony.

Re: “Newton County schools sue state

Best of luck, Newton County, but consideration of students' travel times didn't prevent the Arkansas Department of Education from consolidating schools in neighboring Searcy County—I'm looking at you, Witts Springs.

We must remember the purpose of Searcy County and Newton County is to be all bucolic and such, so the folks from Little Rock can have a nice, relaxing trip on the Buffalo.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to finish reading the Economist before my afternoon dance with a schmoo.
