Obama mourns in Hiroshima May 28, 2016 at 10:09 a.m.

This is no laughing matter.....our panty-waist president (candyass) is making his apology tour. Let's see what's left.... Korea, and maybe he can find a few Nazis in Europe, and he can blame the Jews for getting exterminated by Hitler. When is this clown going to go away? May January hurry here!!!

If this "commission" was doing it's job, thank God they aren't in charge of my property.
Now we know WHY Asa wants to have more control of his living quarters. I don't blame him.

A mouthpiece for public education May 22, 2016 at 6:30 p.m.

The state of Arkansas PAID the LRSD tons of $$$ in the deseg settlement. Now that they have pissed it away, failing to show significant results, the state has stepped in and pulled the plug on their wasteful spending. Maybe the NW Arkansas folks didn't like it that Little Rock got all that money..money they could have used. Jake and his "facts" have never admitted that the LRSD was mismanaged as the city leadership sat back and watched. They were too interested in downtown revitalization, renaming streets, and sucking up to developers. My "facts" say that you wouldn't need 10 lanes of interstate, charter schools or even private schools IF the LRSD had been doing what our tax dollars were paying them to do. We gave them money, opportunity, and a free reign. Their report card shows an F which is the first letter in FUBAR (for those who understand it). Obviously Joyce Elliott is not one who does.

Heroic efforts May 15, 2016 at 10:10 a.m.

Baker Kurrus seems to be a genuine decent person who cares about education, specifically LRSD. But, it's a case of too little too late. Where were all his support when parents were fleeing this city for points north,south, east to escape LRSD? Why have private schools flourished, and Charter schools expanded?
His "supporters" were trying to block interstate highway expansion, pissing away millions of deseg dollars on bloated, incompetent administrations, and paying lawyers to fight their battles to maintain status quo. Meanwhile the so-called city leadership and visionaries were focused on the downtown revitalization. The only effort they made to deal with education was to lobby for the Pulaski Tech Culinary School being placed in downtown Little Rock; and of course they supported the Clinton School of whatever they are teaching.
I'd bet my last dollar that given school choice options supported by vouchers almost 100% of the LRSD classrooms would be empty.

Hail to the chief May 9, 2016 at 10:51 a.m.

I couldn't disagree more. We've gone from being a nation that assimilates other cultures and languages into one that accommodates them. It was not the government's responsibility to do so when my grandfather came here; it shouldn't be so today. This accommodation movement has weaken America. It has lead to race and cultural divides that have deepened in my lifetime. If we have learned anything from our history it is our failure to support and encourage assimilation that has created racial divides with our African American citizens. United we stand, divided we will fall.

Oust Key, give back Little Rock School District, panel says April 29, 2016 at 9:08 a.m.

This situation is getting like a bad soap opera. I pose these questions....where have these "concerned citizens" been for the last 20+ years as the LRSD was dying a slow death? Weren't some of this same group critical of Baker Kurras as being a non-educator when he was appointed superintendent? Wasn't Shane Broadway the dems darling originally selected to head the Ed Dept.? Was he the same non-qualified person as Key?
Is the city of Little Rock any better managed with both a mayor and city manager? Or have they just added more to the cost of government?
School districts don't suddenly turn to crap overnight. And they don't get fixed overnight either. Stop the pissing and moaning, and try to do something positive other than criticize and complain.

Poore says 'entry plan' in works for Little Rock district April 24, 2016 at 11:24 a.m.

"Closing public schools and opening private ones". Is that the conspiracy? The last time I peddled a resume the big-business cronies wanted to see my education background and results. Has that changed? Businesses in central Arkansas need an educated work force. New businesses planning to locate here need the same. You can't provide that without a public education system that works. Private schools are not affordable to the masses, and Charters don't have the infrastructure to handle the load.
What all citizens of this city should want is a professionally run, economically administered, politically insensitive school system where the focus is on the children. There is much room for improvement. If you believe the teacher's union is part of the conspiracy, then they had better get their act together because they have contributed to this problem for for years and years and years with the help of those 95% who vote Democrat. Look where it got the LRSD. Only now do we have a Republican administration trying to fix a 20 plus year old problem. Baker K. was demonized as a white, businessman when he was appointed.

What just happened? April 21, 2016 at 5:36 p.m.

Thanks POP. It rare you agree with me. Kurrus is too smart to ever get involved in politics by seeking office. And that is the supreme compliment I can give him.

New $20s to bear Tubman's face April 21, 2016 at 9:14 a.m.

What's next? Caitlyn Jenner on the front of the newly redesigned 2 dollar bill...and his family of 2 dollar women on the back? Joking aside, as to the 20's, MLK would have been a better choice.
