30-day policy on email gets office rethink May 6, 2015 at 9:24 a.m.

The Arkansas Legislature needs to UN-exempt constitutional offices from deleting important emails. Computer storage space has never been cheaper, so any one who says "this will save money" is either ignorant, lazy or a liar. NOT deleting emails will save more money than it costs to store them. It's disturbing that the State of Arkansas has no uniform (and sane -- years instead of days) email policy for ALL employees and officials. And that DIS only keeps 7 days of backups is moronic (go get 'em Tim Griffin).

Milligan, Swayze, Brady, Harris and Singer. Matt Campbell needs to to some more digging.

Ex-worker: Got speech, then fired April 29, 2015 at 3:13 p.m.

So does the Arkansas State Treasurer have a boss? Or does the office-hollder get to make up their own employment rules as they go? There's a headline story lurking there somewhere behind the curtain.

Arkansas treasurer's office worker off during email review April 27, 2015 at 7:12 p.m.

No wait just a minute. The State of Arkansas' has 9 Constitutional Officers but each one has their own email "system"? And the treasurer, secretary of state and attorney general's email policies are to delete emails every 30 days? Even the important "state business" emails? How does that promote government transparency and accountability? It seems to me that this arrangement would be an ideal setup for anyone who wanted to commit criminal acts. Ever heard of Martha Schoffener? If i was a conspiracy theorist I'd be having a stroke right now. I dare our new governor to put an end to this lunacy.

State gets schooled April 23, 2015 at 9:51 a.m.

The general focus of all school districts should be a universal & equitable educational opportunity for all, with a primary focus on Pre-K and Elementary. A kid can’t do well in Middle or High School without the basics. The elephant in the room is this: no matter how good the teacher, or the teaching method, hungry and/or unmotivated (due to lack of parental encouragement/help) children will NOT do well in Pre-K or Elementary. Fix that problem and the test scores will improve.

Rutledge: Oil spill decree is 'critical victory' April 22, 2015 at 10:12 a.m.

Critical - but 5 million is tiny for a company worth 440 Billion.

Suggs quits LR schools; $250,000 payout OK'd April 22, 2015 at 9:26 a.m.

Yes, the money to be paid out is obscene, but that was part of the contract signed when he was hired. That money will be taken back if he's found guilty of the plagarism charge. What's even more obscene is that public education execs are able to get that crap put into their contracts in first place. A more sane approach would be a moderately decent base salary with bonuses based on ACTUAL performance.

Jindal talks up bill, 'religious liberty' April 17, 2015 at 10:12 a.m.

Where are the documented cases of " Christian business owners who were threatened with fines for refusing to participate in same-sex weddings 'in New York and … Western states' where gay marriage is allowed."? Why enact a "law" to fix a problem that does not exist?

Hunt goes on for missing jet April 17, 2015 at 10:05 a.m.

The conspiracy-theorist in me thinks that this jet did not crash into the ocean. The pilot(s) landed it at some clandestine location for terrorist purposes.

Striping to close Shackleford Road lanes April 9, 2015 at 11:51 a.m.

I sure hope they re-stripe the double yellow lines up by Markham intersection too. They're practically invisible even in daylight.
