Re: “At town hall, Little Rock school patrons question state education officials on charters, local control

Max and Benji,
I know the Little Rock school district and the take over is a popular liberal cause.

But this moderate sees another side of the issue and the turn out. You guys have 100,000 people in your district, about 20,000 kids, YET you only managed to get 100 people to turn out? PATHETIC. Who is in charge doesn't matter. It's how responsive people in charge are to YOUR concerns with your kids that matters.

That lousy turnout sure shows most of the parents are apathetic and don't care if the state is in charge. Dr. Guess and the state were the best thing to happen to the Jacksonville area for PCSSD and the new Jax school district! A PCSSD board would never have agreed to a divorce!

PCSSD and John Walker would never have agreed to a divorce and separation. Firing Dr. Guess was the worst mistake the new PCSSD board could make, especially for Sherwood and Maumelle getting their own districts.

The best thing folks in LR could do would be to push for the merger of LRSD and the south side of PCSSD so Maumelle and Sherwood could get their own little territories.

Re: “Jury convicts trucker in record meth seizure

It's past time to legalize, regulate the dosage strength and buyers' frequency, plus TAX the hell out of all drugs!

Time make drugs just like booze. We bust moonshiners for booze but regulate and tax everyone else. Time to do the same for dope.... If you get your drugs from "an adult entertainment center" then you're legal. If you try to be self employed and import without the paperwork, then be prepared to do the time!

Re: “Semantics drives discord over Metroplan vote on 30 Crossing: CORRECTION

It's really too bad NLR and LR can't get some big donors to donate the land for a brand new freeway from McCain Mall, through NLR and LR just west of the airport to link up with I-30/I-530/I-440!

Sure a few people would have to move but thousands wouldn't endure years of highway gridlock during construction.'

Re: “Bob Ballinger and other Tea Partiers file alternative bill exempting military retirement benefits

We need some more Rockefeller Republicans would understand that cutting taxes and cutting programs, like road improvements, actually cost business growth a lot more than the "savings" of tax cuts.
