Pot shots 

>Rep. Ed Garner of Maumelle, the bakery owner who's been in trouble with the state periodically for failure to remit sales taxes and who's working to cut tax rates on the wealthy, seemed to demonstrate a lack of respect for another law the other day. He posted on his Facebook page:

"Today, the bird seed pirating squirrels on the deck were introduced to a new product...the AirSoft pistol my daughter got me for Christmas. They kept looking back as if to say 'What the heck?!' A new sport is born..." After seeing his note on our Arkansas Blog, a reader looked up the relevant Maumelle ordinance. It prohibits discharge of weapons in the city limits "including but not limited to guns of any type, pistols, air rifles, pellet guns, crossbows, bows and arrows, slingshots and similar instruments." Garner didn't respond to our e-mailed question.

  • Church goes to school in Conway

    An interesting controversy is brewing in Conway Public Schools, periodically a scene of discord as more liberal constituents object to the heavy dose of religion that powerful local churches have tried to inject into the schools, particularly in sex education short on science and long on abstinence.
