Re: “The controversy brewing at Arkansas Baptist College

I have always marveled at the positive public perception of Dr. Hill, considering that controversies and questions seem to follow him from job to job. He was hiding money under bridges to buy recruits back when he was an assistant at Arkansas.

"Arkansas: Danny Nutt and Fitz Hill were the two Arkansas assistants in charge of recruiting Means. They met with Lang at his apartment in January 2000.

Because Lang already had a deal in place with Alabama, he said he told Arkansas the price was $200,000.

"They offered me a job to be the defensive line coach at Arkansas, plus the money Logan had already given me, which was about $80,000," Lang said. "Fitz told me he'd leave the money in a bag under a bridge."

Documents obtained by The Commercial Appeal corroborate Lang's story.

According to an NCAA report summarizing a conversation between Hill and investigator Richard Johanningmeier, Hill admitted telling Lang that Arkansas "did not have a problem" with the request. The report said Hill told Lang that "like in the movies, the money would be placed in a location, for instance under a bridge."

Nutt, still at Arkansas, did not return a phone message from The Commercial Appeal. Hill, now a fund-raiser at Ouachita Baptist University, also did not return a phone message. "

Re: “Mayor Stodola responds to critics of effort to squelch rap show

Stodola has no say over Verizon, which is in NLR. Im pretty sure the State Fairgrounds and War Memorial have larger parking lots than the Metroplex, though, and I havent seen the Mayor admit problems policing those.

Re: “Rap show uproar raises questions about police management, 1st Amendment

I wonder if they think North Little Rock should cancel the Jason Aldean show at Verizon. More than fifty people have been shot st his concerts.

Re: “Bumbling Bielema

I've given up on Bielema, but only the most-triggered of cucks would ever advocate suggest we should "crawl back to Bobby Petrino on our hands and knees and beg him to come back."

Re: “Police announced beefed-up patrols

I suspect the dramatic results of the ASP patrols this week are another impetus for the LRPD to appear more engaged. It's amazing what law enforcement can accomplish when they're actually stationed in high-crime areas.

Re: “Police officer shoots carjacker in fast food drive-through

Too bad Mark Stodola's car wasn't in the parking lot. The perp could have just lifted the keys from the tire and spared that poor woman the whole ordeal.
