BRUMMETT ONLINE: Heated historians

By John Brummett

This article was published February 14, 2018 at 4:30 a.m.

Personnel flaps keep arising at the state Heritage Department under the leadership of Stacy Hurst. The relevant question is where personality conflict ends and harm to the public interest begins, if it begins at all.

Looks like what's been rumored about doing away with certain license requirements for certain occupations in Arkansas. That way if you have a buddy in office you can become a professional in many things not available to you now. Never mind the mess that it would cause. I see where Mrs. Hurst like the POTUS did not accept the blame for the problem.

Thanks for laying all that out. I didn't know what to think after reading the earlier news article. There is a manager type who doesn't feel secure until she has appointed her own people in key positions. We may be looking at that here.

"but we've always done it this way" seems to be an issue here. Some people can't accept change. You, JB, should know that based on your own pissing and moaning over the presidential election 15 months ago. Maybe this article is gloating over the fact that your Heights elitist yellow dog democrat (Clarke Tucker) beat Hurst in a state leg race featuring two candidates of the same background.
I can't see this as a big deal issue since most of our public schools don't focus on history maybe because it is a subjective topic crafted by the author as much as by the facts.
Can't you find other more important local issues???

Earlier version erred badly by saying the director of the Historic Arkansas Museum is long gone. Not remotely so. The former director of the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program is long gone. Sorry.

One reason ARkansas can’t move forward is because we keep looking back and dredging up the past. Then some want to cover up the past, or change the past. I bet a couple smart millennials with laptops, GoPro cameras, scanners, and some DVD burners could handle all the AR archival/historical bs.

And since the Hillcrest Kid was brought up, looks like Clarkie thinks he ready to run w/ the big dogs in DC. Someone remind me, what has he actually done for his current constituents ?

LR1955 - Clarke Tucker is the great white hope for the Heights elitists, after their failure to elect an African American (because she is one) candidate.
