Tech CEO, 25, to coach ASU spring game after eBay win April 15, 2014 at 3:34 p.m.

Well, I guess if your head coaching job has been a revolving door for years (especially for the "Gus Bus"), auctioning it on eBay for the spring is as good as anything...

Meeting set on Hinson Road traffic April 14, 2014 at 8:46 p.m.

Brought to you by the SAME bright minds who imposed the 25 mph speed limit on South University by UALR. Doesn't matter that it provides a FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY because NO ONE drives the speed limit there; if they did, traffic would be backed up 24/7...

False photos cloud social media storm reporting, weather service finds April 14, 2014 at 8:42 p.m.

Flooded parking lots? Back in the 1978 Little Rock flood, the old Asher & University Kmart was ITSELF flooded. And this dork didn't even bother to photoshop properly; that side of the Benton Walmart is the GROCERY entrance, NOT "Home & Pharmacy". Not to mention how much of Benton would be in DEEP, DEEP water if it were true...

Judge: Arkansas GOP can defend absentee-vote law April 14, 2014 at 5:01 p.m.

Though I'm mildly against voter ID, IMO the judge made the right call. On the one hand, in Arkansas the AG is legally bound to defend the rule despite having issued an opinion against it; there is no legal reason to throw Dustin out. OTOH, there really isn't any legal reason to keep the GOP from intervening if they think they have a better argument.
.
Frankly, I think the AG's earlier opinion was a tactical move aimed at killing voter ID; there is simply no reason to say in-person voters can cure voting without ID while absentee voters can't, and not allowing a cure makes it more likely to be struck down. I think the court will ultimately uphold the regulation, if only because overturning it increases the odds that the entire voter ID law is unconstitutional.

Bull Shoals chief ordered to live with town's mayor April 11, 2014 at 2:42 p.m.

Arguing over access to the police department? What about having to LIVE with the mayor? That's just plain stupid.

Medical college bid gets a CEO April 11, 2014 at 12:23 p.m.

Calling it (or ASU's proposed osteopathic school) a "medical college" is confusing. Though osteopathic medicine is nowadays virtually the same as traditional medicine (in AR it falls under the state Medical Board just like MDs), it's still not QUITE the same as MDs in the public eye. If it were a "medical school" the legislature would likely block it because the *only* authorized college for MDs in this state is UAMS' College of Medicine whose enrollment is limited by law. Call it an "osteopathic college" -- NOT even "osteopath school" ("osteopath" & "osteopathy" are outdated, except as the historical root of "DO" which is now read as "Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine").

U.S. 70 work to shut lanes next week April 11, 2014 at 12:10 p.m.

"East Grant Avenue"? Shouldn't that be East GRAND Avenue? That's what it says in the AHTD press release, *and* the street name for old 70 East between MLK & downtown.

Panel will appeal PB election ruling April 10, 2014 at 2:47 p.m.

The reporter is WRONG. The judge in the 2012 lawsuit said the law DOES provide for this situation: Since Pine Bluff *had* 50,000 people at one time, it *continues* to elect its mayor under that law *despite* dropping below 50,000 in 2010. (State law says once a city qualifies for a particular state law based on population, that law *continues* to apply to the city *even if* its population changes later.) That decision was NOT appealed, so it CANNOT be reopened as to Pine Bluff until the legislature changes the law. The Arkansas Supreme Court WILL uphold Judge Capeheart's order; the only question is which legal doctrine they'll use ("res judicata" or "collateral estoppel"; the difference between them is important ONLY to lawyers).

FedEx said to plan LR truck terminal April 9, 2014 at 11:49 p.m.

Where on earth is "Mabelvale Cutoff Extension"? If it's an actual extension of Mabelvale Cutoff (which ends just outside downtown Mabelvale) to this site that would send the trucks thru Southwest LR, *not* to I-30 or I-430. Perhaps they mean the long-gestating South Loop segment that should eventually be built east of this property, where IIRC the Mabelvale Cutoff extension is supposed to end?

Election board approves absentee ballot rules April 9, 2014 at 11:42 p.m.

Who's the rat here, HM2? The GOP for pushing the voter ID law? The AG for saying the curative provisions don't apply to absentee ballots? Or the commission for trying to fix the problem via regulations? (Personally I say it's the GOP, but others here will disagree.)
