Arkansas deputy prosecuting attorney charged with DWI placed on leave

Surely he won't be returning to his same job. How could anyone take him seriously?

Death penalty sought for couple in killing of 11-year-old Arkansas boy

A quick execution would be too good for these two, but I am glad that they will likely be executed someday. Sitting on death row has to weigh heavily on the mind.

Dicamba-snitch sign hits nerve; Arkansas grower claims offer of reward was attention-grabber, not serious

Terry Fuller, a Plant Board member from Phillips County and longtime acquaintance of Smith's, said he was disappointed by the sign. "I think it shows an idea that a group of farmers think they're above the law," Fuller said. Well Mr. Fuller, they actually are above the law because the Plant Board is not fining the violators as was proven by an article in the Jonesboro Sun a couple of weeks ago where they FOIA'ed your records. Farmers like Bo Smith are just big bullies, if he is not doing anything illegal why is he worried about people driving on county roads, which by the way are public, and reporting violations? Also, these farmers like Smith are not telling the whole story when they file a complaint, they know exactly who sprayed their field. It is not that hard to figure out when you live in farm country and you know who owns every acre and you know when and what is sprayed in every field adjacent to your property. By the way, what if the Arkansas Farm Bureau's position on all this spraying, since they always say that farmers would never do anything to harm the environment? It sure seems like they are harming the environment and their adjacent farmer neighbors.

Shouting again fills Little Rock schools meeting

Agree with NUN, the State needs to maintain control of the district for many years to come and maybe, just maybe, they can prevent it from becoming something like Memphis. Griffen talking about white supremacy and telling Hill that they are not his slaves is only setting progress back, but that is always Griffen's method of operation. I am sure all the parents in WLR who send their children to private and charter schools, and those in Benton, Bryant, Conway and Cabot, are saying, now you know the reason we send our children elsewhere. And who could blame them at this point?

Trump absent from G-7 climate session

I think the more accurate interpretation of Trump's statement would be, I have done many more environmental impact statements than anybody because I am a developer and EIS's are required by law. To hear him tell it, you would think he actually wrote them himself. Agree with HAH said, also, we are doing very little to address overpopulation, so things are probably going to get a lot worse. Take a trip to a big city in China some time if you want to see the reality of too many people living in one place.

Great River Rumble explores Mississippi, tributaries

Interesting column Flip, it would be great if activities like this could bring more attention to our greatest national river and the need to restore and preserve it.

JOHN BRUMMETT: When politics was noble

Good to see Beebe getting his due credit. Beebe carrying all 75 counties proves once again that Arkansans want moderation. Watching how he handled an audience during his Q&A sessions on AETN was enjoyable.

Proposal by Entergy would increase rates in Arkansas. Here's how much the average bill would rise:

Well, we haven't had any ice storms in quite a while now so they had to come up with some reason to increase the rates. Agree with skeptic. This is what happens when you have no competition.
