Education key for 2 in GOP House race April 20, 2014 at 7:33 a.m.

It seems that Hays just wants to improve education for rich people to get vouchers. Sorvillo is correct that discipline in school needs to be improved. What the schools need are extensive reading and writing programs for 5th to 8th graders, tutoring programs, recreational activities, computer technology programs, and emphasis on biology and stem. There needs to be a no tolerance policy on truancy.

ACLU challenges Arkansas voter ID law April 20, 2014 at 7:22 a.m.

I think this restriction is just a maneuver to make it harder for those who do not drive to vote. Those people tend to be too poor to own a car and almost always vote for the Democrats. In the time I served as a lawyer working on ballot security issues, I do not recall a single case of somebody impersonating a voter to vote. I saw much more circumstantial evidence of ballot tampering and machine rigging. A few times dead people voted absentee. In one case there was an attempt to allocate an insufficient number of machines (or broken machines) to the opponent's strong areas. This latter method was used to much success in Florida in Bush v. Gore to keep minorities frm voting due to long lines. In one county in Arkansas, I saw candidates watching how people voted. Yes, there are some dirty things going on, but I've not seen people impersonating voters. This is just an attempt to dilute the Democratic vote.

Lottery forced to tap reserve April 19, 2014 at 11:41 a.m.

Yes. Lotteries are a tax on stupid people, and my husband and I buy some whenever it gets high. The more scholarship money available to Arkansas students the better. The investment pays off for a lifetime when these better educated Arkies make more money and pay more taxes.

Our schools in peril April 18, 2014 at 9:18 a.m.

Localities should be able to keep local schools, but we should not be spending large sums on administrators. Money needs to be spent on quality teaching and tutoring--not on studies, lawyers, busses, or administrators.

Yes, the money trail will take you to the Kochs who are among the biggest polluters in the country along with Exxon Mobil etc. There is much we can do to decrease pollution and our carbon footprint.

Supremacist accused in Kansas attacks testified in Arkansas trial April 15, 2014 at 3:02 p.m.


Good question. I think there is much overlap. I saw on TV that the grandfather and child who were killed were Christians. So much for his idea of taking out two Jews.
