Game & Fish life jacket 'citation' for ice cream draws attention online July 3, 2015 at 1:17 p.m.

Our society, especially the media, does NOT recognize or reward good behaviors nearly enough. Of course the media has to focus on bad behaviors in order to have "news" that sells. Shame on us.

Cleburne County clerk will resign over same-sex marriage licenses June 29, 2015 at 2:03 p.m.

In the real world, refusing to perform the required duties of your job will get you fired. Mr. Rapert and this fictional County Clerk took an oath to “faithfully discharge the duties” of the office to which they were elected. As as a meaningful display of the firmness of his convictions, Mr. Rapert should resign too.

Supreme Court upholds nationwide health-care subsidies June 25, 2015 at 10:17 a.m.

President Obama has appointed 2 S.C. Justices during his tenure, but 5 of the 9 Justices were appointed by Republican Presidents. Majority: the intent of the law overrules hastily and poorly chosen words. Result: ignorance, fear and hate lose again. It seems that, in addition to being interpreters of the law, most of the Justices have some common sense too. Time to buy some health care stock again.

Where's a Sherwood cop when you need one?

Suspect in Charleston, S.C. church shooting in custody June 18, 2015 at 12:37 p.m.

Hey Bro, a mentally-deranged/drug-crazed/mad-as-hell person (take your pick) can kill a lot more people in 30 seconds with a gun than they can with a crowbar. So can you. There needs to be a system, a process, a way to minimize the possibility of people like this having access to guns. But the gun lobby won't hear of it. With freedom comes responsibility. Who's responsible? You? Me? Gun manufacturers? It takes a village. All must be responsible.

LR directors question police chief's shift of officers June 18, 2015 at 10:16 a.m.

While mutual trust and respect between the police and the neighborhoods they serve IS important, to equate that to being as important as a 911 call shows ignorance. A city director has no business telling a chief of police how to do their job. The city directors need to let the chief do his job and concentrate on doing their own jobs; which is to figure out how to hire and retain competent police officers. River Market District crime is bad for business. It hurts those mechants, it makes tourists think twice about vistiting, it hurts the city's bottom line.

Campaign e-filing bill falls short in 1st vote June 14, 2015 at 12:16 p.m.

So why weren't the other 9 members present? Do they only have to show up it they feel like it? Or were they ordered by their corporate donor-masters not to attend?

AG asks full court to hear state on 12-week abortion ban June 11, 2015 at 4:49 p.m.

I see we have comments from the male gender, but no comments from the females. Should it really be a crime for a woman to end HER pregnancy in the 13th or 14th week? A pregnancy that was the result of one bad decision? Should it be a crime for a woman to abort HER fetus that is growing inside HER womb? A fetus, that if born, will most likely experience a few of the following real life situations: - an absentee father; - a mother that either can't raise it properly or will not love it; - will be put up for adoption; - will grow up in an orphanage; - will be put into a foster home with abusive people; - will resort to substance abuse to dull the pain of being unwanted, unloved and without any real family; - will resort to crime to get money for the substance they're now addicted to; - will grow into adulthood an under-educated, unmotivated welfare recipient minimally supported by federal and state tax dollars. Roe v Wade has stood for 42 years and it IS legal precedent. I wonder if AG Rutledge is allowing her beliefs to influence her decision as an elected public servant and ignoring her sworn duty to uphold the law (not her beliefs). Does her decision violate the separation of Church and State rule?

Nonprofit to return gifts from treasurer, deputy June 9, 2015 at 10:39 a.m.

So MIlligan got a mulligan from Rutledge when Milligan violated Arkanas nepotism laws his first week on the job. Keep an eye on this guy in case he tries to pull a Schoffner. I still want to know exactly who the "investment professionals" Mr. Milligan hired that have gotten such phenomenal returns on the Treasurer's short-term investments.

IRS slow to secure data, senators told June 4, 2015 at 5:25 p.m.

So, certain members of Congress voted to cut IRS funding (cybersecurity by 20% since 2011). As a result, the IRS has been unable to adequately upgrade its computer systems, which made it easier for the sophisticated hacker-theives to access the IRS website and fradulently claim 13,000 refunds totaling $39 million (i bet that's too low). So who elected the sell-outs who voted to cut IRS funding? Oh, yeah, it was the indivduals and corporations that are hellbent on killing the Affordable Care Act. I wonder how many folks that now have insurance thru the ACA want it to go away. How long will it take for the people who work and pay taxes to take our "democracy" back from the pro-business anti-ordinary-citizen oligarchy that bought those sell-outs their seats in Congress! Hurry up Nov., 2016!
