PHOTOS, VIDEO: Little Rock officer fatally shoots man during robbery try at shopping center, chief says February 25, 2017 at 8:14 a.m.

Anyone notice how the crime rate in LR has gone up dramatically since Mayor Stodola convinced voters a tax increase would lower crime?

Arkansas judge acquitted in child's hot-car death can return to bench, court rules February 24, 2017 at 8:51 a.m.

Of Bourne, someone had to inject "Republican", yet judicial positions are supposed to be "non-partisan".

That being said, this had nothing to do with political party. It was about the "good old boy" system. Enabled by a prosecutor who put up a horrible case.

The facts should have been more than enough to convict.

But No- the good old boy system played out. Any one of us would have been convicted with the same evidence.

Sadly, without the conviction, the state Supreme Court had no choice.

U.S. Supreme Court asked to take Arkansas birth certificate case February 15, 2017 at 4:27 p.m.

Do folks not grasp WHY parent names are included on a birth certificate (when possible)?

Hint- it's not to legitimize homosexuality (or traditional coupling either).

Teen arrested in shootout at Little Rock apartment that killed 1, injured 4, police say February 13, 2017 at 5:05 p.m.

18 year old murderer referred to as a "teenager"? Seriously? Under the law, he is an adult.

After revenue report, Arkansas governor tells agencies to brace for possible cuts February 3, 2017 at 12:15 a.m.

DoubleBlind: an EITC is a wealth-transfer scheme that actually helps to trap wage earners. It heavily penalizes workers who have relatively moderate income increases.

Tax cuts are the equitable and moral means to the end.

But a better question might be to ask why revenue is not only down, but by a major amount over forecast. Is it that revenue is not down so much as the estimate/forecast was way too wishful?

From history- large revenue shortages result from larger state economic problems, and one that is plaguing our state is UNDER-employment.

Arkansas mother pleads guilty in 4-year-old's overdose death January 27, 2017 at 6:30 p.m.

Whether or not her genuine intent was to actually kill her son, or if she is just so self-centered as to drug her child so he would sleep instead of "bother her"... A fatal selfishness, is pretty much irrelevant. She inflicted injury to her child. Whether it was by bashing his head in or by stuffing pills and cough medicine down his throat, she deserves far more than "manslaughter" and a fine.

Little Rock School District postpones special election January 27, 2017 at 6:20 p.m.

Oh boy- another school building for students to destroy and the District to not maintain (only to return to voters a few years down the road demanding more mills for repair), and the cycle will continue.

Never mind that LRSD remains at the top in the state for per/pupil funding.

Gay teacher sues over firing from Catholic high school January 11, 2017 at 7:48 p.m.

Regardless of one's views on Homosexual it and "guy marriage", the courts have already spoken on this issue- and a church/religious organization can terminate employees based on their breaking said faith's beliefs (if known at time of employ- which in the case of working for a Catholic entity- is pretty certain).

Sheriff: Driver of vehicle that hit Arkansas boy near school bus arrested January 9, 2017 at 6:30 p.m.

What exactly is it going to take to convince people not to drive by a school bus with its lights flashing? Obviously what's on the books now doesn't seem to make a difference.

North Little Rock man arrested in rapes of 2 women in their homes December 28, 2016 at 4:42 p.m.

Sexual predators should be out down like the rabid animals they are (after an appropriate trial/conviction).
