During chase, central Arkansas man runs other drivers off road, sheriff's office says July 26, 2017 at 12:44 p.m.

HE started the high-speed part of the chase when he sped away from the cop. With that kind of reaction, it's hard for a cop to just waive him off.

DWI charges tossed for son of Gov. Asa Hutchinson July 25, 2017 at 11:03 a.m.

Who would write conditions as "daylight" on a ticket for a 3 AM wreck, then void the ticket, write a new one and fail to serve it on the guy? Either the cop needs to go back to police academy, or perhaps he did it intentionally once he saw the perp's name to leave his lawyers an excuse to get it thrown out?

WALLY HALL: UALR football great debate, feasible or not July 24, 2017 at 9:37 a.m.

One more VERY important thing: Parks & Tourism now runs War Memorial Stadium, so asking them if UALR football is a good thing is kinda like asking the Waltons if Walmart is a good investment. ;)

PAPER TRAILS: David Bazzel's on-air choke; Verizon Arena tops bigger cities; Arkansas ranking on driving list July 24, 2017 at 9:31 a.m.

I'm surprised none of the usual suspects here gave the obvious response to Glen Hooks' quip: You don't need Riverfest to see .38 Special in LR -- or Smith and Wesson either. :p

Arkansas town lives on, looks to weather the loss after Wal-Mart closes July 23, 2017 at 5:29 p.m.

If Central Arkansas can't get a Costco, how on earth could Waldron get one? They'd be lucky to have one in Fort Smith someday.

WALLY HALL: UALR football great debate, feasible or not July 23, 2017 at 2:27 p.m.

And speaking of UALR vs. UA Little Rock: When I was going to UALR for my MBA 30 years ago, my mom struggled to avoid calling it LRU. (She also told me she finally stopped calling it LR Junior College just as it became UALR.) Heck, I still think of the road just west of University as Asher, not Colonel Glenn.

And GoBigRed, I'm old enough to remember when Nolan Richardson had to play ASU at Barnhill in the NIT; the then-Indians led most of the game before Arkansas finally pulled it out. Yes, Nolan probably would have been fired if he lost; but he was already on the hot seat at that time, perhaps even more so than when he was finally fired. Nolan hit bottom, but he recovered and led the Hogs to a national title. Bret Bielema losing to ASU would *not* be like Jack Crowe losing to The Citadel, Bobby Petrino taking his girlfriend on a bike ride, or even Nolan spouting off at Frank Broyles at the end of his run.

WALLY HALL: UALR football great debate, feasible or not July 23, 2017 at 2 p.m.

I'm firmly on all sides here: bachelor's degree from UA-Fayetteville, already have an MBA from UALR (not sure I'll ever truly call it "UA Little Rock" as Chancellor Rogerson wants) *and* going to law school there next month (so I might have to help pay for the team). I know why the Hogs have all but abandoned War Memorial, and I'd like to see more football games there; but IMO the best way to do that is for UA & ASU to play there every year, *not* stick UALR and its students with a football team. The "no in-state schools" policy made sense in 1945 when schools like Henderson seemed like viable competitors to The Hill; but not today, at least when it comes to ASU. (Possibly also UCA, UAPB, and non-football UALR.) Unlike UALR football, a UA-ASU rivalry would almost certainly be profit-neutral at worst to UA and highly profitable to ASU, WMS, and Central Arkansas businesses; instead of taxpayers & students paying more for UALR athletics, they would likely pay less for ASU athletics. Better for us to subsidize ASU than Sun Belt rival Louisiana-Monroe, or UAPB than SWAC rival Alcorn State!

Little Rock-area transit director to leave July 22, 2017 at 10:55 a.m.

First, CATA should never have been renamed. Second, he sounds like he was in it for the money; he started planning his exit once the transit tax failed. Finally, it's too bad he's not leaving completely as he seems to be one of those nuts who want a boulevard instead of 30 Crossing, an idea that is LONG overdue here. (They even took my own example of Pine Bluff's Martha Mitchell "Expressway" as how building a boulevard INSTEAD OF a freeway can ruin a city, and twisted it into yet another "freeways ruin cities" lie even though Martha Mitchell is NOT a freeway!)

Little Rock board vet Cazort seeks city realty slot July 20, 2017 at 10:51 a.m.

Why couldn't he have just asked for an appointment to the Airport Commission, like most outgoing city directors seem to do?
