Records offer picture of youth arrests in Arkansas; report notes racial disparity, sees need for shelter as alternative to jail

There is a reason blacks only make up 39% (or so) of the population in Pulaski County but make up 80% of those arrested, and it isn’t a skin color issue.

And until the root causes of crime the n the black community are addressed, we won’t see much change.

Assured I-30 job delayed, foes pull request for halt

The insanity of this is mind-numbing. If anything, the project, when completed, will REDUCE environmental impact by reducing congestion, wasted fuel, and excess exhaust emission.

It will also help alleviate frustrations and headaches for thousands of motorists each and every day.

There is zero scientific or moral reason for ANYONE to object to this project. Some people just are not happy unless they are "against it" - regardless of what it is.

$6M loan to HSU approved by state; consider joining university system, higher ed agency recommends

Over $4 Million in unpaid student fees??? How many were allowed to continue in classes? How many will be back in the Fall? How many spent their aid checks and student loans on non-education expenses? Technically that would be fraud.

Krispy Kreme in west Little Rock closes

An example of what poor management will get you.

Krispy Kreme is among the most popular donut purveyors in the nation. Even in Central Arkansas- the place was regularly busy. As I’ve read elsewhere on the matter- they were frequently out of donuts at peak times.

Arkansas governor vexed by water release as flood tactic

Asa is right to question the Corps procedures. But he us barking up the wrong tree. The flooding was exacerbated by the LATENESS of water release from Keystone. The Corps succumbed to environmental nazis and refused to do the old early Spring draw-down. So when the cray rsin cycles came, the lake was already near maximum capacity. No storage capacity remaining... The reservoir wasn't being used for its primary legal purpose- flood mitigation. So they opened gates at the time when the river was already flooding, adding to the flood levels.

State, C&H Hog Farms reach deal for it to move out of Buffalo River’s watershed

EYETRYTOO- You operate out of emotion + ignorance, a very dangerous position.

Such large scale operations are actually fairly common and growing. As urban sprawl continues, less land us available for raising livestock. But its down to a science. The permitting process for C&H was extensive and included probably more testing than any project in Arkansas history. Every year passed. This operation posed less danger to the Buffalo River than the hot air coming out of your mouth!

State, C&H Hog Farms reach deal for it to move out of Buffalo River’s watershed

I never cease to be amazed. The same government agencies issued C&H's original permits. Along the way, C&H abided by 100% of every rule and requirement. As NEW requirements were thrown at them - they just ate the cost and followed them. As environmental testing began - again the complied, passing/surpassing every test. Permit issued, then retracted based on loud environmentalists voices (and lots of uninformed people with no clue who just bought what the environmentalists said based on zero science).

More tests - and more tests. The University of Arkansas comes in and TRIES to find violations or other proofs of pollution - and couldn't. Water testing above and below the closest creek shows zero added contaminants. NO evidence of any risk whatsoever. Indeed, the application of chicken litter to pastures near the river contribute exponentially more to the river than G& H is estimated to be able to if the worst cataclysmic disaster were to occur. Tourists contribute exponentially more pollution to the river than G&H ever had the potential to.

What kind of country do we have if you follow every rule, jump through every hoop, and then get your land use taken away from you for nothing more than radical nuts who claim damage and pollution than there is ZERO evidence of? Marxism comes to mind...

One that got away: Rebels bludgeon Hogs, force decider today

What is it with pretty much every Razorback team (especially men) who can be so full of potential an talent, yet play so inconsistently? This year represents the best chance for the Razorbacks to go all the way—- but that game... pitiful would be an understatement. It’s like an entirely different team showed up...

Michael Avenatti charged with defrauding Stormy Daniels

Sorry - but when crooks defraud crooks... I just can't find much sympathy for any of them.
