Analysts lower 2015 budget deficit forecast to $426B August 25, 2015 at 11:35 p.m.

Not the most brilliant analysts... considering the US Federal Budget Deficit for this year is already over $498 Billion... and rising (as of 8/25/2015)

Arkansas loses military vehicle contract to Wisconsin firm August 25, 2015 at 11:28 p.m.

In reference to the corporation that complained of high drug-test failures - I can name one that I know of: Walmart.

A recent renovation/remodel included the hiring of a BUNCH of employees - both short-term for the remodel, and several new long-term positions. There were some positions that went unfilled - despite hundreds of applications. Why? So many could not pass the drug test - and among those who did pass the drug test, still more couldn't pass the background check... That doesn't bode well for any area, urban or rural. Not many companies get really excited about having a drug-head labor pool to hire from (and marijuana wasn't the top hit on the drug tests...).

Fire marshal probing blazes at 2 LR schools August 7, 2015 at 10:30 p.m.

How about using terrorism laws... Because I cannot think of any other reason for the thugs on the survelence video setting the fires- to strike fear into the children and neighborhood.

Teens charged in Conway couple's murders August 7, 2015 at 4:44 p.m.

Assuming conviction, these two "teens" chose to do commit one of the most heinous of adult crimes, and thus deserve the same penalty...

Arkansas legislator eyes changes to religious objections law August 7, 2015 at 4:41 p.m.

"but also make clear that ministers would not have to perform same-sex weddings."

An impossible claim or promise to make. But he knows that. Courts have ruled over and over, utilizing the "equal protection" clause to throw out such exceptions.

In fact - just look at the town in Idaho that, despite such promises in the SCOTUS ruling supposedly claiming ministers would not have to perform such "weddings", passed an ordinance forcing all ministers to perform same-sex marriages - or be locked up.

Officer-involved shooting victim identified August 7, 2015 at 4:39 p.m.

If one points a gun at police officers and are shot dead, you are NOT a VICTIM! How idiotic.

Hot Springs youth pastor arrested in rape investigation July 23, 2015 at 10:12 p.m.

13 years old... A CHILD! A tall tree and a short rope seem to be appropriate...

Grandson named suspect in Conway couple's murder July 23, 2015 at 10:09 p.m.

Yet another example of why age should have little to do with penalties when it comes to very adult crimes. If convicted this young man should face capital punishment.

Rutledge rejects 3 proposed amendments July 21, 2015 at 9:05 a.m.

Sometimes being supposedly "behind the times" is a good thin.

But in this case, blindly accusing the AG of being political is unjustified. The AG has the responsibility to sift through proposed amendments to prevent ambiguous, deceptive, or confusing issues are voted on. In our history, initiated acts and amendments have been suggested that either had no substance related to the loot title, or that would create a giant legal mess.

The person who submitted these marijuana proposals has a history as well- of using back-door wording for personal gain as well as planting intentional ambiguities to confuse the issue.
