Medical marijuana backers submit signatures to get proposal on Arkansas ballot June 20, 2016 at 6:21 p.m.

There ARE legitimate medical uses. And the active ingredient in pot is FDA approved to treat those medical ailments. As for pharmacies, besides the fact that pharmacists are not as important as they would like you to think, pot IS still illegal Federally. If the Feds ever decide to crack down...

UA gets way, despite not-so-silent objectors June 19, 2016 at 9:21 a.m.

The revenue difference is minimal. I'm a transplant who couldn't give a s**t about UA. However, I always thought playing games in LR was unique and a great (natural) thing to do. I think UA blew it.

Man injured in shooting behind Little Rock Wal-Mart June 18, 2016 at 2:27 p.m.

As I recall, the last time there was a shooting at this WM, it was in the main parking lot. Glad to see things are improving.

I-430 crews installing fiber optics June 18, 2016 at 11:58 a.m.

He covered the left on red from a one way to a one way a few years back. Actually, I think he got it wrong and was reminded by several readers.

State hotline for smokers nears its end June 18, 2016 at 11:55 a.m.

Interesting in that the number is a national routing number. What happens if AR pulls the plug. Will the call still go through to another state?
.
"About 11,900 called and asked for follow-up services, Wheeler said. About 3,800 quit smoking as a result of the call center last year."
.
And when do you follow up? Is it self-reported? Or are these 'rectal reach' numbers?
.
"He estimated that the state saves $28 for every $1 it invests in the program because of the cost of treating those with smoking-related diseases, including people on Medicare and Medicaid."
.
Same as above. How much tax revenue does the state get from smokers? What is the cost of geriatric care for the now-living-longer ex-smokers?

Arkansas unemployment rate drops to record-low 3.8 percent in May June 17, 2016 at 10:07 p.m.

It always amuses me to see people champion $2 gas. Do you not understand WHY it is $2? Just wait until THAT bubble bursts. Incidentally, wasn't the AR private option put forth by Rs? As for Obama, it will be interesting to see how history remembers him.

As fiscal woes linger, UAMS weighs updates June 12, 2016 at 11:03 a.m.

No wonder my better half has been over-billed by THOUSANDS - including a retroactive benefit change that never went through proper employee notifications. After substantial effort, ALL over-billings were subsequently fixed. Personally, I'd like to see an audit of UAMS billing/MCPG. I KNOW we're not the only ones over-billed. I expect the over-billings have to number in the millions of dollars. I also know there was a discrepancy with Medicare billings in one of the departments. As I recall, billing for a supervised procedure when the procedure wasn't actually supervised.
.
Fact is, UAMS is grossly mismanaged. And yes, MCPG can move it's offices to campus and save some of that $9 million.

Arkansas city bans sale of tobacco products to anyone under 21 June 10, 2016 at 12:51 p.m.

Let's just make the age of adulthood 21 and be done with it.

Recycling penalties on hold by hauler June 10, 2016 at 12:49 p.m.

"food contaminating nearby recyclables"
.
And WM did a TERRIBLE job of making this known. I rinsed, but didn't take that much care is being sure all the food was removed. Honestly, I think WM isn't pulling the profits they expected...

Facebook threat about 'butchering' officers leads to arrest of Arkansas man June 9, 2016 at 5:58 p.m.

In the meantime, I can watch someone get over $30000 worth of stuff stolen, recover one of the items, get a fingerprint MATCH to somebody in the system for theft, have the police not even bother to question anybody, and have the prosecutor say that there isn't enough to build a case. But by golly threaten them on Facebook...
