IN THE NEWS » Fox News personality, ex-prosecutor fined for speeding; 'serial stowaway' pleads innocent; smoke bomb aimed at skunks starts fire

As I understand from our Arkansas elected reps that spending tax $ on placing religious monuments on state property, and defending lawsuits when Arkansas laws restrict our federal rights is OK because we all voted to do that when we voted for the incumbents, as all incumbents had full disclosure of their personal beliefs in the campaign. To quote Arkansas poet Maya Angelou, when someone shows you who they are believe them.

Some Vietnam War vets in Arkansas riled over honors for all

This "pecking order"/purity test has no place in valuing those who served, where they served, and how they served. Most of us didn't pick where, how, or when we served. We all did our assigned jobs, had our brothers and sisters back in peace and war. I did two tours in Vietnam as a combat correspondent for Stars and Stripes and have a bronze star, but that doesn't make me any better than some soldier repairing helicopter engines stateside or any less valuable than those who served as a combat infantryman, or an air force pilot making bombing runs. My cousin, a helicopter pilot, is on the wall and a member of my combat correspondent unit is also on the wall as are 8 women, and truck drivers hauling water over the Hai Bahn pass everyday are on the wall. All on the wall made the ultimate sacrifice and we should honor them equally just as we should honor all who served equally.

Arkansas judge convicted of bribery appeals to U.S. justices

So the person who took the alleged bribe is in prison, but folks who allegedly gave him the bribe are facing absolutely no charges, and I think one of the alleged folks who gave Judge Maggio the bribe is still on the state payroll?? Is that right??

DWI charges tossed for son of Gov. Asa Hutchinson

Well I'm glad he got treated equally on any legal problem, but with two prior DWIs he needs some help before he kills himself or other innocent folks. Hopefully this is a wake up call for the Hutchinson family to intervene

No delay; former Arkansas judge off to prison

Previously some reports said that Morton told Baker that it was cheaper to buy 7 judges that 135 reps, but Morton still got a lot of legislation through this last session to help his nursing homes and Baker draws a state salary---what gives with all this?

Free trips to Cowboys games violate state ethics law, North Little Rock officer told

This is a perfect example of the law of unintended consequences. Yet the AR legislature does not seem to want the governor nor the courts to take any action on any law passed by the AR legislature. Our founding fathers obviously understood that no legislature is all knowing and created the executive and judicial branches because 3 heads are better than one at finding common sense. And, some common sense is certainly needed in this situation.

Four people shot in Little Rock in 24 hours

We need to make better use of technology, more cameras, better placements of patrols, more community involvement, better 911 facilities, larger jails and prisons, revise sentnces, so non-violent offenders don't take up so much space. True we can't stop scum and drugs immediately, but we can sure send a message like 59 missIles sent a message.

U.S. Supreme Court keeps stay in place, preventing Arkansas execution

If you lie to your life insurance company it voids the policy and they refund your money because they would not have done business with you if they had known the truth. That's pretty much true in all businesses, they get to choose who they do business with, unless the refusal is based on some kind of discrimination. Allegedly AR did not reveal the real reason to buy these drugs, and the company refunded the state's money and wants the drugs back.

The number of those elected to public office who have previously or later violate the public trust seems to be too high in Arkansas. NTM the number that have serious personal financial issues. We the public need to demand better info from candidates.
