When owner's bullets fly in LR jewelry shop, 4 robbers skedaddle January 22, 2015 at 9:40 a.m.

I wonder if those left-leaning ultra liberals in the upper heights will raise hell with Jones for discharging and even having a firearm? The police could solve this case pretty quickly if they follow the trail of crap...surely those black youths crapped themselves when Bill opened fire. I just wish Bill Jones was a better shot.

The hard choices January 22, 2015 at 9:35 a.m.

Anyone who is up and moving in the early morning hours must notice that our highways and bridges are being taxed to the max by commuters who have left the metro area to find better schools, and perceived quality of life in the surrounding urban areas. No telling how much more life we could have in the I-30 and Broadway bridges if we had fewer commuters. And how much better would the city finances be if more folks actually lived here rather than just worked here. The pathetic state of LRSD has cost Little Rock dearly in population growth and more importantly in new business growth. The chart published in Sunday's paper showed that over 13,000 students attend charter and private schools in this area. That's the alternative to LRSD if you have the time and money to commit to your child's education. If not, you move out of central Arkansas or endure the LRSD. It's about time someone cleans house and puts the LRSD on notice.

No review needed: Bryant caught the ball January 13, 2015 at 9:58 a.m.

Not all of us agree with your Dallas homer opinion. Dallas got a correct call on that play. If Bryant didn't try to be a hero (like he always does) and just catch the ball instead of wanting to score the deciding TD, or if Romo would have tried to gain two yards instead of being the loser gunslinger he is overpaid to be, then Dallas would have won the game. But then, they really didn't belong in it based on Bryant's antics against Detroit. He should have been flagged for showing his ass disputing the call and running onto the field. Romo, Bryant, and Jones are the three amigos that keep me being a ABD fan...Anybody But Dallas. Now Wally, all they need to do is draft J Winston to make a perfect foursome.

Bryant’s catch nullified, Cowboys’ quest quelled January 12, 2015 at 12:18 p.m.

I loved the was the right decision. Ironically, the player involved got a freebie last week when we showed his ass running onto the field to protest the PI call in the Detroit game. It was a welcomed payback. Dallas should have been at home watching this game instead of playing in it. And Dez needs to shut up and move on. The game also showed why Romo will never be a Super Bowl QB. He's still too much of a gun slinger who makes bad decisions. Dallas had the game under control. No need to throw that pass when you only needed a few yards to keep the drive alive. But that's the Romo mentality. He's a loser.

Stop paying chambers, judge orders LR, NLR January 6, 2015 at 1:43 p.m.

Finally, the slush fund given to the Chamber and the downtown developer lobbyists has been legally exposed. Some of us saw this money used to support the sales tax increase which included $22million for the developers "tech park" dream; it's been used to attempt to divert the Culinary School to downtown. We have a A&P commission that is heavily funded with the hamburger tax that should be used to promote this city. Instead, a few years ago it was wasted on perks for the director and expensive wine at Cajuns. This lawsuit is long past due. Giving a blank check to these folks is not responsible government.

$1.25 rise in state's base pay set today January 1, 2015 at 9:49 a.m.

And I'd bet that the quality and quantity of their work will not improve as a result of this "gift".

The new Arkansas December 30, 2014 at 11:09 a.m.

Since the days of Bill Clinton, Democrats in control have talked about how they can make this state a better place to live. Despite all their BS, we still rank at or near the bottom in most measurable categories. Our central Arkansas public schools are the driving force in creating the population explosions in Faulkner, White, Lonoke and Saline counties. The remaining majority democrats in Pulaski County are traditional yellow-dog liberals who continue to believe. The real future of Arkansas in not in the tired old politics of Pulaski county, but in the northwest, and suburban central Arkansas. The voters have declared that they are willing to give someone else a chance to effect real progress. I welcome their decision. But JB has a column to write if he wants to get $$$ paid. We all have a role.

Letters December 29, 2014 at 9:20 a.m.

Ms. Washburn, I didn't read Will Cohen's comments, but I did follow bill clinton's sexual harassment episodes. Using your power and stature to intimidate women as both Clinton and Cosby did is the same. Clinton is more of an offender since he betrayed the trust of the American people when he used the power or his office on not only Monica but several other women, not to mention the trail he cut in Arkansas before reaching the White House. Both are despicable humans, but Clinton stinks the most.

Bubba holds forth December 28, 2014 at 9:53 a.m.

Bubba is sure right about one thing. He (and many of us) will have to pay for the health insurance of those who made foolish life choices, and never learned the difference between WANT and NEED, just another generation of "stupid" Americans.

Sales tax flat, LR projects face cuts December 26, 2014 at 10:10 a.m.

Whatever the city Board and Manager decide as to the necessary adjustments to this revenue shortfall. I hope they will consider sizable cuts to the $22million allocated for the Tech Park project. This project was included in the sales tax increase proposal over the objection of some who saw it as a "bone" thrown to the city developers, downtown partnership and chamber of commerce for their financial support of this tax increase. The Tech Park can get outside sources to finance their building plans. But street repair, drainage issues, police and fire protection projects must be funded by public monies; there are no alternatives. These projects must come before a "build it and they will come" developer's dream.
