Arkansas panel OKs eliminating death sentence as penalty February 26, 2015 at 8:39 a.m.

The death penalty IS both a deterrent and a tool for prosecutors, WHEN it is actually used/carried out.

The current legal wrangling are the product of liberal judges and abuse of the system.

The solution is simple- reauthoruze tge use of gallows (hanging). No worries of drug cocktails.

Of course, a genuine head shaker can be found in al the feigned concern for "humane" executions (as in "pain-free"), yet never a consideration for the victim or their families.
What ever happened to the concept of choosing to unlawfully take a life means you choose to forfeit your own?

Parolee apologizes for vandalizing vehicle, report says February 23, 2015 at 11:40 a.m.

Sigh...

What part of "parole" does this idiot not understand? Conditions of parole include keeping your nose clean. Destroying someone's vehicle kind of doesn't fit that criteria.

He probably know he won't spend any real time in prison because they are full.

I say take a bat and bash him with it. See how sorry he is for it then...

House endorses African-style hair braiding bill February 18, 2015 at 5:04 p.m.

So- these "hair braiders" never do any other hair service (cutting, coloring, conditioning, etc)?

If all one did was the braiding, I can understand this.

Embattled Debaltseve falls to Ukraine rebels; troops retreat February 18, 2015 at 12:09 p.m.

When will the media actually report facts? I have friends who live in Ukraine. The U.S. Medua is playing friendly with Putin and his lie machine.

These were primarily Russian troops, using Russian-supplied weapons, under orders directly from Putin.

We are simply so side-tracked with our inept and Islam-loving president and ISIS to pay attention to Ukraine. Putin violated the cease-fire to capture this city. Yet the world just sits back and fiddles.

NLR to forfeit 2013-14 football, basketball victories February 6, 2015 at 9 a.m.

FYI for those who may not know:
When a student transfers to another school, before he or she is eligible to play for the new school, the student athlete (and parent or guardian if under 28) must sign paperwork attesting that the transfer was not for the purpose of the sport(s) in question, and that they were in no-way "recruited" or enticed to make the move for athletic/competitive purposes. Paperwork is also signed by school personnel.

State votes to take over LR School District January 28, 2015 at 1:37 p.m.

As much as I do not trust government running the schools, as I much prefer local control, we have laws and rules for a reason. The LR District has failed to meet standards. The State has given not only the law-mandated opportunity to turn around, but has actually shown restraint.

Several other districts have been through this. Why is the LR Distruct somehow different? If the state doesn't take over the district, don't they owe the other districts that have been subjected to their hand an apology? Either enforce the rules, or drop them.

What il wrong with celebrating a holiday on the person being honored' birthday? Sure, it wouldn't always be on a Monday (thus those coveted three-day weekends...). But seriously... Are there not enough of those no mail days already?

$7,500 reward offered after bald eagle shot in Arkansas January 27, 2015 at 4:44 p.m.

Isn't that an area frequented by duck hunters? While the article says "bullets", the media is usually pretty ignorant of the difference between bullets and shot (as in from a shotgun). The injuries described sound like from a shotgun.

But I have no way to verify.

Arkansas pays overdue docketing fee in gay-marriage case January 27, 2015 at 4:36 p.m.

Rutledge is showing done class, labeling the non-payment as a "clerical error" before she took office.

We all know that Dustin McDaniel didn't want to fight this battle and he figured he had the way out- sabotage.

Funny how some would say this is a wasted $550. Let us remind you of that when your own pet, Leftist ballot issue needs defending. How easily you forget that the VOTERS voted FOR. a CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT defining marriage.

I stand amazed how the Left loves the term "democracy"... All the way until they disagree with the majority. Hen they are all about dictatorial power wielded by the courts (far too often powers beyond constitutionally authorized).
