100 riled, cite curbs on access to U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton

Business as usual. Tom Cotton serves himself and the conservatives only. There is no room for anyone else at his table. That's pretty much how the state government in Arkansas works now as well. I will give Boozman credit, unlike Cotton, for responding to an email I sent and it was not the standard form letter either. Of course this was pre-Trump and may not be an indication of the climate now.

Obama tours Arkansas tornado damage

It was a positive day for people in Vilonia today, and I, along with my husband, are glad to see that the president took the time to speak with people impromptu. This was the right thing to do, and no amount of political nonsense posted by petty people can take away from that.

Mom who 'whipped' 4-year-old with belt charged, police say

God has nothing to do with beating children. I'm truly concerned about the comment that "onlyGodmatters" has posted. Supporting someone who clearly abused her child will never be tolerated. Children who are beaten do not escape the mental damage that occurs through the stupidity of an adult who is truly evil. I asked for this person's comments to be removed as he or she appears to support child abuse.

Bail $100,000 in kitten cruelty case; 11 cats said to be missing

This is inexcusable and I'd like to know why the jerk was allowed to adopt so many kittens. The red flag should have gone up when the woman cleaning the apartment noticed duct tape on the cat's feet! I agree with ToTheLeft, this guy is just shy of torturing and/or going after children or adults. It would be interesting to know what his former wife has to say about his behavior. I shuddered at the thought that he was actually a paramedic at one time.

One year since 3 convicted in West Memphis murders freed

They were railroaded and I hope they can live their lives to the fullest now. It's a shame the case was so badly bungled to begin with because the real killer is still out there.

Child left in car dies

There's just entirely too much information regarding deaths of children left in vehicles during the summer to let someone off the hook for negligence and child abuse that resulted in death! Why the heck would anyone leave a child alone in vehicle, regardless of the temperature, to fend for themselves? I suppose some people just don't want to be inconvenienced by children interfering with their shopping.

Arkansas gets $17 million for homeowner program

Not to mention we work hard, pay our bills and don't get a hand out. People who live beyond their means certainly do benefit though. We know a family who has been living in a gorgeous home they couldn't afford without making payments for over 2 years. No one twisted their arms to buy a home beyond their means. And now, another reward and bailout program for the irresponsible!

Arrests made in one of two post-Riverfest robberies

In reference to Inc4505 who claims in her post above that she and her friends were accosted after Riverfest at the Colonel Glenn Valero, she failed to mention if the police were contacted and what the outcome was. And as far as the "robbery" in front of the Capitol Hotel on Saturday night, since when does a 20 year old have to wait until Sunday to have his mama call the police for him. Good grief, I hope there were cameras operating in the area that can either prove or disprove his (or his mama's) statements.

Arrests made in one of two post-Riverfest robberies

I'm a little confused by Inc4505. Did you report anything? I've seen nothing regarding the incident.

3 face felony charges over starving infants

Coralie, if we all had a crystal ball and could genuinely see into the future, we could spade and neuter potential childabusers before they had the opportunity to breed. Ah, but this isn't the world we live in. And sadly, since the system has a revolving door policy that allows people like this opportunity after opportunity to commit crimes against children it becomes a never ending saga. Scum like this along with the pedophiles of the world should never be allowed to live in society again. Truth is....some people just choose to be evil so let's not sugar coat it by offering excuses for seriously warped disgusting behavior!
