Re: “Corps-cyclist encounter reduces dam parking

Citizen1 has a great point. When I'm cycling parking at the Pavillions or launching ramp is not problem. When I have guests from out of town and want to show - off the bridge on a post dinner walk though, I'd really rather have the option to park close.

Getting to the BDB without a car is problem for LR cyclists who aren't mountain goats - River Mountain, Overlook, Alsopp or behind the Deaf School are all formidable hills.

What I'd like to see would be a switch back built near the "old road" connecting the softball fields to Kavanaugh. I mourn the loss of trees but would welcome a route up from the river that I'll still be able to ride in 10 years.

Re: “Acxiom to open park at River Market headquarters to public

Speaking of dogs do you get halfway up the BDB with a dog and no poop bag?

Surely someone sees these selfish dog owners turn their back and walk away.

What if fellow walkers used their iPhone and took a photo of the perps or their car.?
Post the photo online, forbidden hillcrest or here.

Maybe some would think twice

Re: “New Little Rock superintendent rebukes teacher union president

Years ago I felt a teacher was grossly inappropriate with a student.

I knew I was going to be with at another meeting with a member of the school board so I wrote a brief summary of my issue.

The note was politely received and read.

The board member then asked me if I had discussed that matter with the teacher, with the teacher's department head or the principal and I admitted that I had not.

She pointed out that for her to intervene at this point would be to undermine the authority of the all of the above, plus that of the superintendent.

I didn't understand it at the time, but later came to do so.

The gist seems to be that if when the first person of whom you ask a question says, "I don't know I'll have to talk to the person in charge of that" then you started off talking to the wrong person.

My first impression here was that it was a similar situation, trying to bypass channels and not likely very effective..........but overreacting makes it seem petty.

Re: “Obama speaks on Trayvon Martin case: 'Could have been me'

Drackman, I haven't read the transcript but other than Zimmerman's statement, what evidence do you have that Martin physically attacked Zimmerman.?

Maybe Zimmerman swung the first punch. Maybe Martin knew if he didn't knock out Zimmerman he'd eventually get his hands on the pistol and shoot Martin. Maybe what the witnesses saw was a man who knew he was in the fight for his life, that letting up on Zimmerman was essentially signing his onw death warrant.

I don't think we know what happened.........except that a young man walking back from the store was shot to death by someone who was involved in activity that would have made any of us uncomfortable.

Re: “Obama speaks on Trayvon Martin case: 'Could have been me'

I agree with Silverback.

I don't even have to believe what Obama says to appreciate his heart-felt words and his honest portrayal of how those feeling chacolor the perceptions of an entire race.

Re: “Caution: Vanity license plate editors at work

100 license plates?

I'd design a basic Arkansas plate that could have a customizable 3x3" square on one side, and a place at the top for a slogan

The rest of every single plate would be identical (except the number)

Inside that square you could have a deer, apple, fetus, college logo, Purple Heart, etc etc. and at the very top you could have Hendrix, Praise a Teach, Support Life, etc (often hidden by license plate holder anyway)

......but the rest.......uniform!
