So if you can not afford the 911 fee, you don't get the service? Doesn't seem
to match up with the intent of the service.

Beard, Williams plead not guilty to forgery charges

They are probably guilty but let the system run it course. All you have to do is watch the news and see how often we are mislead by this or that detail.

For home face-lift at UCA, a gift

Are you suggesting that uca refuse the money? The article says that aramark is giving the money because they want the area they work in updated, so they not offering to give it for football or something else. A chancellor's house is always a firecracker waiting to explode, the only way a board (and in the above remarks, president)isn't going to be criticized is for the university to not have a state owned house. Houses (especially old ones) always have things going wrong with them.

We are very much concerned with our students, faculty and staff. We give the first raise in 4 years last year (most states are going on their fifth year without raises). We have spent nearly $20 millions on renovation of classroom buildings and residence halls in he last two years, nearly double what was spent in any two year period during the 2000's. We are hiring 37 new faculty this fall and will have increased freshmen enrollment for the second straight year. Moody, the national financial rating organization, has upgraded our financial position three (3) times in the last 18 months (no other university in America has been upgrade three times in even the last two years, maybe three). Our financials are the best they have been in at least ten years, if not longer.

We have a ways to go to be where I want us to be, but we have made tremendous progress. The quality of our incoming freshmen class is the best it has been. So yes, the Board and the University has greatly increased the fiscal strength of the university and freshmen enrollment is up nearly 200 from two years ago. Overall enrollments are still being adjusted because, in the late 2000's, we had gotten away from insuring we were recruiting students who were prepared for college.

I am glad you are concern about Our Alma Mater but please come up and visit. Let show you what we are doing. I think you'd be proud.

As far as the President's Residence, that is a no win for the Board and University. Old houses will always cost you money and there will always be people that don't think the university should spend anything on a president's residence. Thank you for caring about our Alma Mater..Allen C.Meadors

UCA house judged not yet ‘presidential’

The amount mentioned in the article does include the cost associated with the repair/replacement of the HVAC and all the deflective windows and the cleaning of dangerous mold and work on extreme lead poisoning issues as well as the salaries of physical plant employees who have maintain, mowed and clean the property over the last two years. There has been basically no remodeling except the modifying of a small room into closet space.

Arkansas lineman Oden arrested

We should be disappointed in Mr. Oden but we should be outraged at society for continuing to enable this type of behavior. Look at any police report in a college town, you won't believe how many DWIs are given out every week. This has been so forever. Most student survive and learn from their mistakes, some don't. But back to this particular case, it is easy to say throw the young man out; take away his scholarship;and basically insure that he can't play professional football (which he is certainly capable) or have programs that try to keep these young people in school (maybe they will not be allowed to play in anymore games just practice)but don't throw them away because we (society) are the one that have "enabled" them to get to this point. If we throw all of these young people out of college, where do they end up? You know the answer to that one and it's not good for them or us.

We have to stop taking the easy road and seek to find solutions that work, if we truly want tomorrow to be better than today, we need to work to find ways that helps people (especially young people) early. This is more important than any won/lose record).
