Update: Four police officers dead in WA state, shooter was a convicted felon from AR, granted clemency by our dear former Governor, Mike Huckabee...Thanks again Huck, Yall remember that convicted rapist he let out that went to OK and murdered again? Does he acknowledge the blame, NO. Yall remember this in 2012.

Pretty scary, but I just found this site through a link on Facebook. It's called Yearbook Yourself

Or rather, most of the boats never showed up.
Last February I was lamenting the failure to enhance the recreation opportunity represented in the spillway at Lake Norrel and the river downstream.
My post from back then …
In my opinion we are failing to maximize the recreation value of this stream. It's use falls mainly in the spring and fall because the recreation is highly dependent on the stream flow. We have the ability to enhance the flow and we should be… Continue

First let me say I have never been arrested. I am a law abiding, tax paying, citizen who has lived and worked in Saline County for 25 years. My son was arrested last week for a outstanding warrant from 2005 during a traffic stop because the driver of the vehicle he was in was not wearing a seat belt. The bondwoman called me and we set a time on Friday for us to meet. We where at the Saline County Detention at 4:15pm and the bondswoman requested a printout for my son and she went into a little… Continue

Hubby and I have found what is sure to become another fave: Copeland's at Shackleford Crossing on Shackleford Road in Little Rock.
Awesome menu, great atmosphere and friendly staff.
I highly recommend: Eggplant Pirogue, Crabcakes and Shrimp Alfredo, and the Shrimp Ducky.
The desserts.... oh my!!! They've got this sponge-cake-cheesecake thing called "Cheesecake Napoleon" that you can choose a topping for and is awesome with the bananas foster topping... Great… Continue

Can someone please explain to me why it takes 2 to 6 hours to get someone released at this jail?? There are no other jails around this state that takes this long to get someone out on a bail bond, or bond, signature bond or last but not least a sheriff bond.
Pulaski County can take a couple hours sometimes and thats with the jailers having to walk a long ways to the pods to get the inmates, not to mention pulaski has 3 times the inmates that saline has.
Saline County always uses the… Continue

Most meet during the week. Most have… Continue

It is my recommendation to Mayor Holland and the Benton City Council to proceed with both [road] projects simultaneously -- South Shady Lane at $1.2 million and lower Military Road at $18 million. The city should combine its existing cash balances dedicated for streets/drainage and its monthly sales tax revenues with the federal stimulus funds from Metroplan to pay for both projects. Both projects will be completed without putting the city’s financial well-being at risk.
After these… Continue
