Re: “Arkansas's ban of the natural painkiller Kratom has left sufferers and former opiate addicts in the lurch

I'm an established successful attorney who uses Kratom instead opioids or alcohol or another substitute for help with pain. It was a travesty to hear that that one person (who has financial interests in prescribing more addictive options like methadone or suboxone) to petition the illegality of Kratom. It has been a life-send. I don't drink. I don't use "illicit" drugs when I have access to Kratom. My psychiatrist and psychologist both agreed it was a bad decision by the GOVERNMENT. Why does this state continue to fall behind in everything?

Re: “Little Rock Film Festival comes to an end

Bring more people in who have the resources and time to generate the funding necessary to support the festival. The festival has always run without a paid full time director. That is not an excuse for closing the festival. Meet with the Arkansas Literary Fest and Arkansas Rep Directors and Board members. I'm sure they will have ideas on how the LRFF can raise funds.

Re: “Little Rock Film Festival says goodbye

Look at the programming. The festival did an incredible job compared to other festivals in cities with populations larger than the state of Arkansas. The issue is funding to run the festival, not the quality of films. Your stereotypical opinion is exactly why we need the festival to continue to combat ignorant views of Arkansas and Little Rock.

Re: “Little Rock Film Festival says goodbye

No way they're closing the doors. I'm sure if the Renauds don't have time, they'll pass the torch so the festival doesn't die. The city, sponsors, and volunteers have invested too much to have it die. There are many other ways to raise funds, it just takes a lot of work and engagement with community members. They can do it.
