Government shutdown's ripples felt across Arkansas January 22, 2018 at 1:50 a.m.

DACA was an executive order; regardless of the order's legality Congress can revive the program so it's NOT "unconstitutional". Even Trump wasn't as heartless as you; he delayed the end of DACA till March to give Congress a chance to act. Hint: If they actually HAD broken the law when their parents brought them here, they would likely have been punished as mere juveniles. We're talking an administrative violation here, NOT a criminal act. No one is "illegal"!

DDDKA, the courts NEVER ruled on DACA directly; a similar program was rejected by the courts only because its opponents claimed only Congress could adopt it. It is NOT unconstitutional.

Federal government shuts down as sides stay apart on stopgap; Arkansas began preparing last month, official says January 20, 2018 at 7:42 a.m.

Trump's racist outburst was part of his rejecting Congress' DACA deal *after* telling Congress he'd sign whatever deal they worked out. As far as I'm concerned, that was bad-faith negotiating on Trump's part; his inviting Sen. Cotton proved he was going back on his word. Democrats are right to blame the shutdown on Trump and demand the DACA deal be included in any continuing resolution. And for Sen. Cotton's role in the whole debacle, he should resign!

Sen. Tom Cotton sends letter warning constituent to stop contact January 19, 2018 at 10:31 a.m.

As far as the subject of this article: I was raised to avoid profanity myself, but younger generations weren't. If you can't handle a few F-bombs on the phone, ESPECIALLY if you're Sen. Cotton's youthful age, you have NO business being a U.S. Senator. And that's nothing compared to the super-foul S-bomb Trump dropped (doesn't matter if it's S-hole or S-house, it's still racist as Trump used it). I agree fully with PopMom.

FightingScot, if you think ACA health insurance is "unaffordable" try paying for healthcare without it. The ONLY reason it's "failing" is the GOP has been sabotaging it since before Obama signed the bill.

Central Arkansas Water has raised rates for second year January 15, 2018 at 4:33 p.m.

More specifically, CAW is a GOVERNMENT-owned utility, governed by a board appointed by the cities of Little Rock & North Little Rock. It's not "publicly owned" in the sense of on a stock exchange, like Entergy or Centerpoint Energy; the Arkansas Public Service Commission regulates them and is already looking into possible rate adjustments.

Central Arkansas Water has raised rates for second year January 15, 2018 at 4:08 p.m.

@Trailop: CAW is a publicly owned utility; it doesn't pay taxes, so there's no tax cut to "trickle down". In a sense, CAW's lack of a tax bill has been "trickling down" to LR residents since the 1930's and NLR residents since the 1950's (when those cities took over their water systems before merging them into CAW near the turn of the 21st century).

Music festival organizers didn't meet conditions to rent downtown Little Rock venue, official says January 13, 2018 at 11:36 a.m.

First, this ain't the Fyre Festival; no one is promising even the cheap sandwiches the Fyre Festival actually produced, much less the gourmet meals they promised. Second, even IF it's fraudulent it CANNOT meet the definition of a Ponzi scheme, because it is NOT paying fraudulent gains to earlier investors out of later investors' principal (as both Charles Ponzi and Bernie Madoff did). And no, they have NOT promised a headliner YET; I'm skeptical as to whether or not they'll actually get one too (they'll be lucky to get Migos & Lil Uzi Vert, maybe even SZA -- yes I'd rather see Kelly Clarkson or The Roots but that ain't gonna happen), but calling it "fraud" just because they didn't get the headliners they (or you) wanted is a bit too harsh.

Trump: Why allow immigrants from 's***hole countries' January 12, 2018 at 1:15 a.m.

Hey Packman - Hate to break this to you, but RBear did NOT call for the assassination or violent overthrow of President Trump. The last I checked, even Trump has yet to repeal the First Amendment; we are just as free to criticize Trump as you are to criticize us. In the end Trump is just a man, just like every other President before him. We criticize Trump for his failings because they besmirch the dignity of the office he currently occupies.

Music festival organizers didn't meet conditions to rent downtown Little Rock venue, official says January 11, 2018 at 6:47 p.m.

That's your opinion, DoubleBlind; at least they have enough money to rent a suitable venue. You may not like some of the confirmed acts and/or potential headliners, but that doesn't mean other people don't like them enough to buy tickets and make the event happen.
