Re: “Little Rock grows. No impact?

Thank you for this Max. The construction of high-density housing along Kanis is never-ending. Transportation networks and other public amenities are inadequate for existing, not to mention, new residents. As the quality of life in older Little Rock neighborhoods decays, people move farther west (witness the growth of Benton and Bryant in Saline County). The cycle of westward growth keeps the developers happy, which seems to be the goal of the Little Rock Planning Commission. Having been to many disappointing meetings at City Hall, I can say the commission rarely supports objections from neighborhoods.
Little Rock has a short-sighted strategy promoting unlimited outward growth. Will a new mayor help change this?

Re: “UA trustees OK proposed tenure change

Weakening tenure does little to create a strong university system, quite the opposite. This makes Arkansas an even less attractive place for accomplished prof's and bright up-and-comers to work. (We already have trouble attracting specialists and scientists.) The top tier choices have options and, more than likely, will pass on AR.
