Humility and ego February 7, 2016 at 12:22 p.m.

another feeble attempt to humanize Hillary....won't sell...but keep trying John.....you're being paid "what they offered" for your efforts.

Cut students' debt February 5, 2016 at 10:07 a.m.

If you read the other op-ed on remediation rates (40-60% in Arkansas) you can see where much of the cost of college educations end up. If school districts (k-12) were penalized with the cost of financing remedial classes, then cost to the student would decrease significantly. That is a good place to start, along with what Packman has suggested. Anyone who gets a degree in a "studies" program doesn't deserve any help. They are a drag on the economy of this country. Meanwhile....the Clintons are turning them out in dozens at the Clinton school for government scamming opportunities right down in the River market. One of the classes is "how to turn a $10,000 a year governorship job into a Billion dollar money laundering scheme".

Cut students' debt February 5, 2016 at 9:10 a.m.

Hillary Clinton is a joke...a bad joke. There are thousands of working Americans who got a meaningful college education without running up thousands in debt. I have a many in my family.One a lawyer, another a doctor. What has changed today? The propaganda that every pot deserves a chicken. Look at the collapse of the housing market. Thousands were led to believe they could afford a $100,000 home on a McDonald's part time job. Americans have become irresponsible. They blame others for their failures. Tax success, reward failures. Vote democrat.

Engineers at work on Little Rock I-30 request February 5, 2016 at 8:51 a.m.

A mayor who is so inconsequential to the daily workings of city government (he has Bruce Moore) that he can spend over two hours driving around the city getting on the job training as traffic engineer? Politics over progress. Developers and their friends prevail. Downtown must be preserved and protected regardless. Nothing has changed other than the suits involved.

Remediation ruminations February 5, 2016 at 8:43 a.m.

All this talk about remediation rates has led to just more talk. Here's a solution:
If a school district can't prepare kids to pass basic reading, writing and arithmetic with the $122,000 they receive, then why should the parents or universities bear the cost
of remedial classes? Start reducing the per student aid provided by the state for each student that doesn't pass the ACT .....33% for each of the three basic categories...then watch school districts figure out how to fix the problem. The state gives and the state can take away. School districts have proven over the years o be more about the money than the students. Ask the unfortunate who have endured the LRSD policies...and see where that district is today.

JOHN BRUMMETT: A revelatory moment February 2, 2016 at 9:57 a.m.

You lost all credibility with this silly story when you identified the questioner as a 'Hillary Clinton" supporter. That is a license to lie, distort and mislead. Obamacare has failed to achieve its stated goals. It has proven that you can't legislate behavior. Some folks do desperately need health insurance to survive...but too many others are just hanging around waiting for uncle sugar to pick up the tab for their bad life choices. I would welcome legislation based on studies, and facts. Obamacare fails to meet these standards.

JOHN BRUMMETT: The case for merit selection January 26, 2016 at 10:39 a.m.

Goodson doesn't belong on the Supreme Court. Period. Certainly not as the chief justice. Keep writing about her John.

EDITORIAL: The push is on January 25, 2016 at 1:26 p.m.

This bus service organization runs the tourist trolley in the "revitalized (for developers)" downtown area...most of the time they are few riders. This bus service recently changed their name, their logo, their printed material etc at some expense. I guess so they could continue to overpay those who work there. Now they want a $18 million windfall from a sales tax increase so they can do what? Provide wi-fi service on their buses for people who wouldn't be riding the bus if they could afford other options. Vote no to this tax increase.

ROGER A. WEBB: A fork in the road January 25, 2016 at 11:41 a.m.

I really don't care what "the visionaries" do with the I-30 crossing. I would like someone to respond to these concerns and questions: If the downtown area is "the place" for work and play why are so many housing units begging for tenants, and more are being built ? If we have a near vacant office building in the heart of the river market, why are we spending millions to purchase, remodel and destroy parts of downtown for a tech park that seems to benefits the developers. Many of the young entrepreneurs the tech park seek are high on ideas, but low on funds. They can't afford to live and party downtown. Maybe that will change, but that's what I see today. It's "build it and they will come marketing mentality" which is easy to do with other people's money.
I-30-I-40 have become commuter routes for those who work in the city but live in the surrounding area. As long as Little Rock has the perception of poor schools and poor quality of life this trend will continue. Whatever plan is implemented for the I-30 crossing won't fix that problem.

Salary-review panel floated in Little Rock January 25, 2016 at 11:20 a.m.

Joan Adcock said it all. The board has salary oversight on just two positions. It's unfortunate that there are others who are, in my opinion, overpaid for what they do with our tax money. The airport, waste water, water and even the bus service execs. It's also unfortunate that we have a two-headed city government, and 3 too many city directors. So let's don't add more to the problem with needless citizen committees.
