    Governor Hutchinson says a high graduation rate (ours is about the lowest) and a larger quotient of college graduates in the population are critical to economic development. Every few months there is another, but old, key to unlocking growth.

Re: “Taco Mama

We have eaten Mexican food from Baja Mexico through California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and Texas and this is as good as it gets. The food is fresh and cooked just right. The place is kinda funky, no white tablecloths here. The bar is good the beer is cold the food is great, what more can you ask for? We discovered Taco Mama's a few years ago and it went right to the top of our list of favorite Mexican restaurants and has remained there ever since.

Re: “The line is open

A federal judge has ruled that pres. trump cannot block users on twitter or other social media. Sounds like it is time that Max and AT gets unblocked from some of our local politicians. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/23/busines…

Re: “Schools close in Oklahoma and Kentucky as teachers swarm state capitols

Education is the foundation that everything in society is built upon. Teachers are the builders of that foundation. Teaching is the most important profession/job in any society. We need to support teachers and then get out of their way.

Re: “Governor adds $300,000 to K-8 teacher computer science training stipends

Now there is an "education governor". He just added 91 cents to the budget for every K-8 student in Arkansas. I bet he is proud of himself and the republican party. Before we know it, Arkansas education will move into the 21st century.

Re: “The NRA can be beaten. Florida did it, Republican legislature and all

I am shocked that the state of Florida has passed reasonable gun policies. I hope this is the beginning of common sense laws being passed throughout the country.

Re: “Governor proposes more spending on charter schools and school vouchers

Separate but equal. It was BS then and BS now. They just want to re segregate the schools.
