Arkansas would lose $6B under proposed health bill, firm says September 21, 2017 at 7:50 a.m.

"Flexibility" is a codeword for denying coverage because someone in government decided you're not worthy. The more the GOP attacks "Obamacare" the better Bernie Sanders' plan looks to the rest of us, because they keep destroying the basic assumptions that were supposed to keep ACA afloat. If the GOP doesn't want Sanders' plan, they better abandon their tired old "repeal and replace" mantra and figure out how to fix ACA; they keep proving "replace" means gut the system and make things even worse than before.

Wal-Mart to build new headquarters; site set near downtown Bentonville September 16, 2017 at 7:09 p.m.

The ADG needs to update it's maps. Even the reporter knows the local freeway is now I-49, not I-540 as the map still says.

LGBT shelter drops site, cites threat from resident in Little Rock neighborhood September 16, 2017 at 7:06 p.m.

Folks, think of Lucie's Place as like a domestic abuse shelter, except it's for LGBTQ youth who've been kicked out of their homes -- usually by parents who don't approve of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Its homes must remain secret for the same reasons -- because residents have family members who want to control their lives, and possibly even do harm to them. This person needs to be sued and made to pay for Lucie's Place's expenses in finding a new shelter; a targeted threat like that is NOT free speech.

Longtime TV meteorologist, co-anchor Tom Brannon to leave Little Rock station later this year September 12, 2017 at 9:41 p.m.

I'm old enough to remember when Ron Sherman was a weatherman himself. Guess his company's a good place for folks like Tom Brannon. Good luck, Tom!

Little Rock to try for Amazon's $5 billion 2nd headquarters; 'challenge' worth it for 'transformational' project, mayor says September 12, 2017 at 8:55 p.m.

As I said before, Adams Field / Clinton National has NEVER had enough room between the Arkansas River & the Fourche Creek / I-440 corridor to build even ONE runway that could have accommodated FedEx, much less the two they have in Memphis. We'd be pushing it to get HQ2, but so would Memphis -- and NWA is out because of Walmart. It certainly won't hurt us to try.

Lawsuit claims Little Rock woman, 80, duped out of her home September 11, 2017 at 6:39 p.m.

@BEARTRAP919: Even bad guys deserve their day in court. It's already pretty clear the woman has a strong case from getting the TRO allowing her to move back in pending trial.

Steak 'n Shake set to open food truck on campus of University of Arkansas at Little Rock September 9, 2017 at 9:13 a.m.

Funny how they can serve the UALR campus, but not the rest of Central Arkansas. That may be due to Sodexo (UALR's food service contractor), who is more than likely a specialty Steak 'n Shake franchisee separate from whoever ran the closed NLR location or the current locations in & around Arkansas (like the pictured Texarkana, Texas location, which I've been to).

Arkansas needs $478M a year to build, fix roads, bridges, audit confirms September 8, 2017 at 9:06 p.m.

Both of you are putting the cart before the horse: You start with the assumption that (a) you pay too much and (b) what's already been spent was wasted, which makes your conclusion inevitable. The truth is, road work has become VERY expensive, and AHTD/ArDOT has been putting off needed maintenance to pay for popular new construction for far too long. It's time to pay the piper, folks. (And I live in Jacksonville so I know the frustration; it's gonna get worse before it gets better, especially once they start working on the neglected gap between Main & Airbase.)

Latest Little Rock-area restaurant inspections September 8, 2017 at 8:15 p.m.

Someone needs to check their grammar. I thought Hot Pockets were always "molded", as in shaped inside a mold; that probably isn't what the ADH inspector meant...

Amazon seeking applications as it looks for where to build 2nd headquarters September 8, 2017 at 1:17 a.m.

@TravisBickle: Don't be so glib; FedEx never would have stayed in Little Rock anyways. Clinton National (then just Adams Field) certainly isn't big enough to handle FedEx's air traffic today, and even in the 1970's couldn't handle it beyond its original fleet of Falcons; the claim that short-sighted LR bankers drove Fred Smith to Memphis is probably apocryphal. (Memphis overbuilt its airport in the 1960's; once Smith switched to full-size jets, moving there was a no-brainer.) OTOH, Central Arkansas could make a viable case for Amazon HQ2, though we probably won't be the front-runner.
