State picks Kurrus for LR school chief May 6, 2015 at 11:14 a.m.

Maybe to path to success is found in hiring a non-educator to this post. I recall that the best teachers don't always make the best administrators. We have decades of hiring the wrong persons, paying them to leave when we figure out we made a bad choice, and listening to the LRSD lawyers who want to pay for their summer vacations with taxpayer funds.

State revenue jumps in April May 5, 2015 at 11:33 a.m.

TO: Copy editors and staff writers Ark Dem-Gaz:
I'm as liberal minded as the next person. I like to take a drink occasionally; I like to play slot machines too. I'm all for more casinos in Arkansas to compete with the Oaklawn-Southland monopoly.
That said, will you please quit referring to casino gambling as "games of skill". Let's at least be honest in reporting even if the state government employees, the legislative, executive, and judicial branches are in denial.
True, there are a few games at Okalawn-Soutland that require SOME skill, but the majority of the others are just plain slot machines...just like those you'll find in Tunica or Vegas.
The people of Arkansas need to understand that $38.2 in tax revenue is coming from casino gambling, period.
What might make for interesting reading is a story of who monitors the payout percentage of these "games of skill" and what methodology is used., and what is their skill level in doing so.

Grant request for LR bike trails due May 1, 2015 at 9:03 a.m.

So....the locals who live in the area, travel to work each day, have a driver's license, pay personal property tax on their auto, buy insurance, and pay for car tags. are being shouted down by a flood of emails from the biker crowd, who have none of these requirements. Jeremy Lewno is all wet with his comments. This project will cost all of us $$$$$ that could be spent filling the numerous pot holes on Little Rock streets....pot holes that impact the safety of AUTOMOBILES.It's a matter of priorities.

Letters April 27, 2015 at 8 a.m.

Jake Tidmore....any discussion about same sex "marriage", or civil unions as I prefer they be called, must include that status of unmarried couples like you have hypothetically described in this letter. A life threatening medical crisis? Who can give authorization to operate? Can your live-in? If you die, who gets the house, cars, boat If they are listed in just your name? What survivor benefits do your children have if you have any? These issues are more important than a cake,camera, or floral arrangements, especially since 70% of children are born out of wedlock.

After wife raps for-profit colleges, Clinton quits chain April 26, 2015 at 1:39 p.m.

Once you find the Clinton's hands in the cookie jar they remove them,then expect their loyal followers to praise them for doing the right thing. They have been scamming America since Bill first lied about the draft. Now they have a school here for future scammers and a foundation to enrich them, their daughter, granddaughter, and the felon-family they have as in-laws. And to think so many Americans are still buying their crapola.

LR asks for input on wider bike lane April 26, 2015 at 12:09 p.m.

Benson - I have too many years of experience dealing with these folks to waste time attending. Better that we all contact our city directors and express our opinions. You can bet this meeting will be biker-dominated and it could get nasty if anyone speaks out in opposition.....they have chains on those bikes.

Young entrepreneur earns award April 26, 2015 at 10:43 a.m.

You mean that this lady is getting an award because what she does is cater to immature and obviously unprepared kids whose parents send them to college to take remedial classes because they couldn't get accepted any other way? So, in addition to paying the ridiculously high cost of a college education, these parents are willing to cough up additional $$$$. Only in America!!!!

Bubba breaks it down April 26, 2015 at 10:37 a.m.

Is this farm bill discussion about the same one that contributes to 48 million people having a free lunch card? Maybe that's part of the problem.
Maybe we need a program that pays folks not to eat.....we could solve our obesity problem. Call it a "fat farm subsidy"

LR asks for input on wider bike lane April 26, 2015 at 10:32 a.m.

So...the proposed solution is to CUT the number of car travel lanes from 4 to 2 so that bikers can ride side-by-side holding hands, or small children can travel beside their parent. Meanwhile, those who us this roadway to get to a job and back home must give way to bikers? To add further insult, some $400,000 in tax dollars will be spent to satisfy the needs of the few at the expense of the many. Mr. Webre and company have a lot to learn.
