  • Commission holds public hearing on banning new large hog farms in Buffalo River Watershed

    The latest on a proposed ban on new controlled animal feeding operations (CAFOs) in the Buffalo National River Watershed. The proposed rules would only impact permitting for new operations, not C&H Hog Farm, the 6,500-hog facility in Mt. Judea near Big Creek, one of the largest tributaries of the Buffalo National River, raising concerns about environmental impacts. The coalition behind the proposed ban also continues to apply pressure on C&H, hoping that the farm will move out of the watershed. Photographer Kat Wilson took aerial photos of the farm and the surrounding watershed on a recent flyover tour.

Re: “Jason Rapert v. the Friendly Atheist

In a country that actually went and elected donald j trump president, can we really be so surprised that his constituents in and around Bigelow elected RAPErt?? It seems that ignorance is in and intelligence is out.

Re: “Over the hump

Who else thinks we should start a betting pool -- How long will Rapert's new Ten Commandments monument stay upright this time? He doesn't have the sense God gave a goose, but I honestly don't see why people try to do these religious things mixed in with politics. It never works out well.

Re: “Hogs don't bring out the crowds to War Memorial

If that birth certificate dude, Mr. Lesnick, had watched part of the local NWA pregame show I watched, he would have seen that, before five o'clock, there were very few people there and fine places to park.

Little Rock football game days used to be a day of shopping and dining out in cool places you missed if you ever lived in Little Rock. For me, that meant no shopping (I don't like shopping or crowds) and a long meal at the Oyster Bar. But there was lots of shopping and eating done in Little Rock on game days; most people made a day of it. I don't see why that should change if the games were played on Saturday.

I figure having the game on a Thursday night probably contributed to the low attendance. I know that TV money is great, but it most likely did keep people at home on a week night.

I'd hate to see the Little Rock games end, but I can understand that it is an away game and evidently that's a lot of extra work for the team and its crew. But Razorback football wouldn't be the same without one or two games at War Memorial. Sometimes it has to be about building goodwill instead of making money -- doesn't it?

Re: “Update: State reps' effort to strip Arkansas Tech funds delayed, ATU board issues resolution

That fine, esteemed lawmaker Trevor Drown (don't let us stop you from that) - he represents Pope County, home of Arkansas Tech, correct? And he's trying to take funding away from the university in his own district? I'm afraid I don't understand this. Now, I do understand Dover is not the pinnacle of progress and tolerance it could be, but isn't Drown taking a political risk, trying to get Tech into so much trouble? How he ever got elected remains a mystery to me.

College is a time to learn new things, examine other points of view, use critical thinking, and possibly even to learn tolerance. I don't think anyone ever up and died just from seeing a sex toy. No one forced students to go to the Sex on the Lawn event. If you're old enough to go to college, you're old enough to make up your own mind about things like this, and I don't see what the argument is about here.

Re: “Lawmakers respect voters, except when they don't: See marijuana

Silverback is absolutely correct. Just like religion -- The right-wingers love to discuss things with the Lord, because He always agrees with them. In their tiny little minds, of course, but agreement is agreement.

And that would mean anyone else's prayers are just useless, so the rest of us can just forget about it.

Re: “Trump names Jeff Sessions to lead 'Justice' Department

We need to all quit arguing on approving or disapproving the new crazy as bat sh*t appointees. It won't help for those of us with sense to fight among ourselves. I'm easy, I disapprove of all of them. Jared Kushner, how ridiculous. Huckabuck. well, I'm just sorry for Israel, but they can keep him. I'm not black either, and all this scares the bejeezus out of me, too, DBI. Of course I am a woman, and I guess all us Nasty Women will have to cover that up now lest they come after us.

I'm just thankful that my two sons are too old to be drafted if it comes to that. And I'm worried about all the American troops who are sure to die in whatever show of saber-rattling and bombing the big orange man thinks up with the help of his most trusted advisor, Lucifer.
