Re: “The saga of Rusty Cranford

Great reporting by David Ramsey and the Arkansas Times staff. Wife and I both read this in the print edition today, and both felt that however enlightening, we each wanted to shower and put on clean clothes after reading. The amoral greed and disregard for the law, etc, in the Arkansas Legislature is mind boggling.

Re: “The legacy of William Harold Flowers

I had the privilege of meeting and knowing Harold Flowers in the mid 1970s. He was interested and supportive of an effort by the United Methodist Church to establish a multicultural church in Little Rock. The Hunter Memorial UMC was relocating from its Macarthur Park building to a new building on Romine Road in west LR. A progressive young minister was assigned to lead this effort, and shortly after opening the new building, Harold Flowers and his wife (and often his family) began to drive from Pine Bluff to the new Hunter UMC on Sunday mornings.

In addition to attending, he was often called on to preach, as a relief to the minister. At the time he was somewhat handicapped, and walked hesitantly with a cane. In the pulpit, he would thump his cane on the floor for emphasis in his sermons. It would have been difficult, if one were so inclined, to let your mind wander during his sermons.

We have never forgotten Mr. Flowers, and have many warm memories of a dynamic, yet very wise elder statesman. Prof. Kirks biography was a pleasure to read, and bring back these memories

Re: “Former Garland Co. Admin. Asst, dog tuxedo fan, pleads guilty to making $162K in fraudulent credit card charges

That tuxedo clad dog looks more like an English Bulldog than a Pug.

Re: “Broadway Bridge ramp set to open Monday

I think that the off - ramp to La Harpe was kept closed to provide a place for the port -a- potties. That seems to be the only activity for some time.

Re: “Mayor Stodola plugs football at UALR

I repeat a previous comment when this subject surfaced before. "Tail wagging the dog". If you surveyed the UALR students where they could reply confidentially, I am reasonably sure the response would be "WHAT?. We don't even support the basketball team. Most of its support comes from local businesses and sports fans, and is only paid for by students".

If War Memorial cannot continue without burdening UALR with this added burden, let it be!

Re: “Broadway Bridge ceremony set Thursday; so what about lights?

The off - ramp to LaHarpe has been apparently complete for weeks, with no activity other than a place for the port - a potty. Any guesses when it will open?

Re: “The good news open line: A new millionaire, fiery Stephanie Flowers and the resurgent manatee

Sen. Flowers is her father's daughter. Anyone who ever encountered the legendary Harold Flowers, a pioneer civil rights attorney based in Pine Bluff (and a spellbinding Methodist preacher, to boot!) would instantly recognize his daughter. Her "colorful" language is more than appropriate to the insanity of the whole gun carry movement, particularly in view of her sister's tragic death as an innocent victim of an early mass shooting at N. Texas U.
