Our new District 27 State Representative Julie Mayberry - who won the seat in the November election after her husband, Andy Mayberry, formerly held it - has wasted no time in introducing legislation during the 90th Session at Arkansas' Capitol.

I've posted the entire discussion below that I held on my personal Facebook page about this matter.
People brought up good points for and against changing…Continue
I couldn't be more disappointed in this city than I am right now. I have lived most of my life here and is seems when we have something good there is always those who just can't do it right.

Nearly a year ago, MySaline made it a rule that members need to have their first and last names as their username. We did this because people were not playing nice under the guise of an anonymous name. It generated a lot of talk when people weren't nice, but not the kind of talk…Continue
