NCAA lawsuit could have long-lasting effects

July 23, 2013

For years I have been beating the drum saying that college athletes should receive some sort of compensations for their work (not to mention the obscene amount of money they help bring to their university).

The comeback to that argument is the old stand-by of “but they get a free education!” And that would be a valid retort, if not for the fact that most universities lose nothing by giving out a scholarship and often give away truckloads per year.

For the full story, see Tuesday's Malvern Daily Record.

Ark. agency reviews plan for closed Whirlpool site

July 21, 2013

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality is reviewing a plan to deal with a degreasing solvent that was detected in groundwater at a recently shuttered Whirlpool plant in Fort Smith.

An environmental consulting firm submitted a final remedy work plan to the state environmental agency this week on behalf of Benton Harbor, Mich.-based Whirlpool Corp.

The plan, which calls for chemical oxidant injections and continued monitoring, comes decades after Whirlpool ceased using trichloroethylene, or TCE, at the Fort Smith site.

No burn ban for Hot Spring County

July 20, 2013

Thursday morning Hot Spring County Judge Bill Scrimshire said he would probably know by Friday if he would issue a burn ban for the county. After Thursday's thunderstorms moved through, that decision became easier.

“I talked to people and everybody I talked to said they got some rain at their house,” Scrimshire said Friday. “I just wish we hadn't got some storms. It really downed some trees.”

Scrimshire said he hadn't heard much about damage around the county but a billboard on his property was damaged.

Officials update lawmakers

July 19, 2013

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — State highway officials are updating lawmakers on the road projects that will be funded with a half-cent sales tax that took effect this month.

Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department Director Scott Bennett is scheduled to appear Thursday before a legislative committee to talk about the new road projects. Voters last year approved the tax, which will raise about $1.8 billion during the next decade for the state's highway needs. The half-cent tax increase is set to expire by 2023.
