Arkansas Democrats' dinner renamed to honor Bill Clinton May 24, 2017 at 1:32 p.m.

Why not just complete the sell-out and put the Hillabitch's name on the event as well. Two of the biggest money grubbers in history.

Teen arrested in gunfire that left Little Rock toddler dead; 2nd suspect sought May 24, 2017 at 9:53 a.m.

How does a 17 year old get such an "impressive" resume of crimes? That question is the one that needs answering, not to help this thug, but to prevent others from the same fate. This 17 year old is worthless material that deserves to die. We need not waste another dime on him other than a body bag.
This city has a serious problem that needs more help than we have money to fix. Aging population, growing upscale retail trade areas in surrounding cities that allow the residents to stay home to shop, eat, and spend their sale tax dollars, too many apartment complexes that create pockets of criminal activity, poor school leadership, lip-service city leadership that is focused on downtown "revitalization", homeless issues pitting city leadership against the paid advocates, a commuter work force that destroys our infrastructure without paying for its upkeep (and limited help from state government to support the needs).

Re-form school board, Little Rock resolution to urge May 16, 2017 at 9:50 a.m.

So the Mayor wants to "re-form" the school board and return control to those idiots that squandered over a billion dollars. The Mayor, city board, chamber of commerce and all the other so-call city leaders should be ashamed that they collectively sat back and watched the deterioration of the LRSD as Charter Schools, Private Schools thrived as did the surrounding communities who welcomed Little Rock residents fleeing the school district. These leaders only focus and vision seemed limited to the revitalization of the downtown area. "Re-forming" the LRSD wasn't a priority then, so why now?

JOHN BRUMMETT: All partisan distrust May 14, 2017 at 8:34 a.m.

If there is not language in the state law that provides for the state taking over failing school districts to include FINANCIAL failures, then there should be. The LRSD is certainly guilty of squandering over a billion dollars. IF the LRSD EVER regains local control, and looking at the misfits that opposed this millage tax as the face of leadership, I'd say passing a millage tax in the future is not going to happen. The folks effectively sold FUD (Fear-Uncertainty- Doubt) in the recent election, and once they regain control it will be FUD that keeps them broke because no sensible person would give money to these clowns based on their history of spending.
As to the Russians and our presidential election, did they do any more to influence the vote than did CNN, MSNBC, FOX,CBS,NBC,ABC, the Washington Post, NY Times, or even the OBamas and the Clintons? The latter two lacked credibility and trust. So why can't you media freaks get off this and move on? Or is this the REAL partisan distrust?

Victors in Little Rock millage vote call for board's return May 11, 2017 at 2:01 p.m.

Just look at the pictures in the paper, and the list of named Democrat politicians who want local control returned, and tell me the LRSD has a future. No Name has said it all. The same clowns that pissed away a billion dollars $$$$ want to control the future of the district. If my son has wrecked 3 cars, had a DWI, and numerous other traffic violations, do you really believe I'd buy his a new Corvette? If you answer "yes", you may be a perfect candidate for the school board.

Little Rock voters reject tax's extension to fix up schools May 10, 2017 at 10:20 a.m.

The LRSD has been a real cluster f**k for so long it's hard to remember when it wasn't.As noted here, but seldom elsewhere, the former LRSD leaders sat back and allowed a billion dollars to be pissed away(and city and chamber leaders watched it happen). Their track record on fiscal controls was dismal.
So now we have this election where one side represented the status quo of 30 years of DOING very little and the other side WATCHING them with closed mouths. The perfect storm.
Throw in the fact that this millage extension only effected PROPERTY OWNERS and you get a even more comical situation. I'd bet the private school and charter school advocates are laughing today.
Why is all the positive education news in this county about what the PCSSD and NLR are doing? Maybe the election result provide some insight.

JOHN BRUMMETT: The art of circumspection May 4, 2017 at 9:43 a.m.

Judge Griffen has lst Amendment rights just like all of us. He can write an op-ed if the newspaper would publish it. But there are certain ways of expressing an opinion that should NOT be options for a judge that presides over cases involving them. Is impeachment necessary, or too extreme? Certainly sanctions are in order. Hopefully Griffen will have the common sense to recuse himself when his public opinions can result in making the case for appeals. So, until then, we are stuck with this moron. I don't know if he realizes it, but the more he makes a public spectacle of himself, the less credibility he has as a "judge".
As to his opinion on the death penalty (and JB's as well). There is NO method of execution that should EVER be questioned as to being cruel and unusual. Any method is DESERVED.

PAUL GREENBERG: Bad law and worse sense May 3, 2017 at 7:37 a.m.

Prisons are overcrowded because of public defenders and idiot judges. Take a bow, Judge Griffen, you are the class president.

Little Rock mayor stumps for school levy May 3, 2017 at 7:32 a.m.

It's about time some of our high profile city leaders take an active and public role in the fate of our LRSD. Where were they when the school board-administration was squandering a billion dollars of deseg money?

No pets letter really caps it. Trump gets criticized once again for not having a pet. What's next, he uses too much toilet paper? This bashing has reach a new low when the qualifications for being president are tied to a "pet index". Stupid...stupid...stupid.
