More time given for alcohol measure petitions July 18, 2014 at 6:04 p.m.

Walmart has been funding both initiatives very heavily. Don't let the "claims" and reports tell you otherwise.

I am disgusted by this - because it is an effort to end-run around the will of the voters in the dry counties. Using Faulkner country as an example - voters have repeatedly declined initiatives to turn "wet". So now the efforts are on getting the rest of the state to override the will of the people/voters of that (and the other) dry counties. Why should voters in Little Rock decide if Faulkner County will have liquor stores (including Walmart)? Shouldn't that be up to the people/voters of a particular county?

Alcohol sales measure moves closer to ballot July 10, 2014 at 3:01 p.m.

Just love it when the voters of the entire state are given the power to overrule the will of voters in an individual county.

Shots fired as teens removed from Harry Potter screening July 10, 2014 at 2:49 p.m.

Why do some people just HAVE to ruin what could be a good thing for the public? Sigh. But dont you dare "profile"..

Group submits petitions for expanded alcohol sales July 7, 2014 at noon

My biggest problem with this- it puts the decision for my county in the hands of a state-wide vote. There are enough voters in already wet counties to open dry counties to liquor sales.

How is that in any way fair?

If a county wants to be "dry", by a preponderance of voters in that county- what right to voters in other counties have to circumvent that?

Again, follow the money (with Walmart being one if the big supporters of this petition).

Medical marijuana falls short on signatures July 7, 2014 at 11:54 a.m.

After the previous go-round, and despite better funding this time, voters saw through it.

It isn't a matter of compassion. It is about a couple of factors- with the real motives being a big part of the lack of support.

This has never REALLY been about medicine, easing pain, or cancer patients (or any of the other stated sales pitches). It is about opening the door to full legalization.

Follow the money. And do some genuine research. It takes a little work, but the truth is out there.

2 shot, injured in LR's South Main district July 3, 2014 at 4:29 p.m.

In an Alley at 3:30 AM? Really?

And one report saying the shooter was wearing a white collar shirt, the other saying a purple Amerucan Idol shirt...

What in the world?

U.S. adds 288,000 jobs in June; rate falls to 6.1% July 3, 2014 at 3:16 p.m.

Interesting numbers, considering that the economy as a whole has shrunk nearly 3% in the most recent numbers.

I also find it interesting- do a bit of research into the past couple of decades- at the expected/forecast job creation vs actual jobs stated.

Notice how the last several years, this time of year the forecast continues to decline. It's easy to "beat" a target if you keep moving it closer to you...

And the way the unemployment numbers are cooked makes the figure absolutely meaningless. I personally know a lot of folks who are jobless and have been so long. They are no longer counted in the statistics. Some who just have been unable to find work - they ran out of unemployment benefits. Others who have simply given up. All who sincerely desire to work. No jobs.

Husband pushed from car, run over, police say July 3, 2014 at 3:09 p.m.

-She "wasn't sure if she hit him with her vehicle," the report noted.-

Ummmm... Really? You put vehicle in reverse, then line up and run him over, and you "wasn't sure you hit him"?

How much was SHE drinking (or smoking)?

The crossing bars drop down on you without warning? Really? What were the flashing lights and noises coming from them for some time BEFORE the bars came down?
