  • 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: “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.

Re: “More Arkies on the Trumpcam

Too damn many, Silverback66. I see now that the orange idiot is going to name Huckabee ambassador to Israel. Well, pack him up and send him on over, is how I feel about that.

Tom Cottonmouth cannot be named defense secretary. Might as well expect them to declare war on someone their first day in office. Enough already. Cottonmouth's not even qualified to be on the clown car team for big orange, and that's pretty bad. Actually, you get the big orange man in there, you won't find room for too many clowns, but they'll manage. This just gets more depressing by the day.

Re: “Thank goodness. An open line, week-ending video

Sound Policy,
Your initial post pretty well summed up this godforsaken mess. And thank you so much for teaching me at last how to pronounce Guiliani. Goo-leenie or something to that effect. well, the important factor here is how much experience he has, having been a mayor one time, going for him if he's appointed Secretary of State. God help us every one.

What worries me most about the orange person is that he has gone and legitimized HATE in America during his campaign. Hey, it's okay to hate your black or Hispanic neighbor; he hates them, too. Deport those "Mexicans!" It's just fine to sexually assault women and brag about it, he does that, too, and admits it without remorse. It's okay to hate anyone different from you - LGBT, a different color or country of origin, or just someone (except the big orange man and his good buddies) who has more than you do.

His list of Cabinet appointees reads like the cast of a horror movie or a party game - Name the Worst Cabinet Ever. And I can't even think about his upcoming Supreme Court appointee or I'll cry and/or have nightmares.

But mostly he scares the hell out of me with his apparent fondness for war ("I love war" at a rally) and soon he'll have access to nuclear weapons, when it's clear that evolution has already passed him by. President Obama was right: If he can't handle Twitter, how can he be trusted with nuclear weapons? But apparently a whole bunch of white trashy Americans who hate everyone unlike them think he's just jim-dandy.

This is the first newspaper (except for articles from the NYTimes who, as we now know, "doesn't write good," I've read since the horrendomatous Tuesday. Black Tuesday. The start of the Great American Recession and the Era of Hatred. This will be his legacy.

If anyone has anything to say that will make me feel better, please go ahead on and say it! I'm terrified, desolate, depressed, all those things. I feel like I was personally cheated out of something important for me and my two grown sons.
Desperate in Clarksville,
TinaJ (Yes, the Lab is back!)
