Heres the open line, plus a neighborhood food note. I made a visit to Heights Corner Market this morning and learned from owner Eric Herget that, as early as next week, theyll be using a portion of the store for a new partership with another business with roots dating back 70 years or so, Community Bakery.The downtown institution is going to supply and serve croissants, doughnuts, breakfast items and a range of specialty breads at tables in the center of the store and for takeout.PS: Yes of course the Racing Commission today approved real casino licenses for the existing electronic casinos at Oaklawn Park and Southland Park. They take effect April 1 and sports bookmaking will be soon to follow. The Commission takes p casino applications for Jefferson and Pope Counties in May.Worst thing to watch on the innertubes today: A Viking cruise ship that lost power in heavy seas off the coast of Norway. It was able to anchor before running around, but the 1,300 passengers are being lifted off the ship by helicopter, one by one and dangling in high winds in the process. Five helicopters are available. It will take a while unless efforts to get the engine going are successful. Lots of passenger video of stuff sliding all over the ship and people in life jackets at muster stations waiting for rescue
Little Rock Mayor Frank Scotts take-charge approach surfaces this morning on a bigger issue than media policy negotiations between the city and the Arkansas Department of Transportation on an agreement concerning the Big Concrete Ditch project through the heart of Little Rock.The Ditch is what the highway builders call 30 Crossing, a project to widen I-30 to 10 lanes or more between the south and north terminal interchanges and replace the Arkansas River Bridge. Scott is a former highway commissioner and staunch advocate of the project. Others think it will be damaging to the city, with damaging consequences on the city grid and connecting freeways.Back on the City Board agenda next week in the so-called noncontroversial consent agenda portion of the meeting is a resolution to authorize the mayor to negotiate an agreement with the Arkansas Department of Transportation on design and construction of this project. Problems from my point of view: Scotts love of the project as designed. The half-BILLION shortfall in available money for the state project. The likelihood that the project when built wont resemble whats been proposed in months of public discussions. The size of obligations to the city from an already stretched budget. The question of whether the state and city will commit to the mitigation necessary to keep this from damaging the city, as the original I-30 and I-630 have.The city agenda says the agreement to be approved incorporates previously negotiated elements in the master plan. But what exactly is the plan now, with money available half of whats requiredThe proposed resolution includes details of the citys promise of $3.8 million in enhancement work. That doesnt count expected needs for a proposed park from I-30 to the Clinton Library where an off-ramp now stands and the likely impact on connecting downtown streets to newly configured exits.I hope there will be some City Board discussion about what the city has learned about how the state plans to proceed with a scaled-down project.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazettes Rachel Herzog reports this morning on a new policy instituted by Mayor Frank Scott Jr. to require all media requests for information to be routed through the mayors office and his senior adviser Kendra Pruitt and part-time city employee Stephanie Jackson, who handled PR for Scott in his mayoral campaign. This is problematic. I encountered the leading edge of this new policy last week when I made a Freedom of Information Act request to City Attorney Tom Carpenter for a draft of the ordinance requested by Scott to create a citizen police review board. None is available I was told in an e-mail on which Pruitt and Jackson were copied. Hmmmm, I thought. Heres the problem, apart from the aroma of autocracy. Of course any city employee can be expected to let the boss know when the media is inquiring about a subject with any degree of controversy. But Little Rock city government is a sprawling $300 million enterprise. Must every call to a police information officer for a detail on a crime report be routed through the mayor When D-G columnist Frank Fellone asks the traffic department about a new stoplight, must it first go through the mayor My frequent calls to the Planning Department about this or that item on the Board of Adjust agenda Must they, too, first be routed through Stephanie Jackson and Kendra Pruitt for processing Must my inquiries about Scotts outstanding bill in the campaign for Jacksons work and the still-pending question of who paid for his inaugural party go through them first It goes on and on from my question to Public Works about my garbage pickup to Luke Skrables many inquiries about code enforcement to election-year calls to the city clerk for election filings to the Zoo director about a new anteater. As a practical matter, the mayor doesnt or shouldnt need to take this on. Its a delay in service to those seeking information and a time-waster for the mayor and staff. Politically, the action is more ominous. Ominous, too, is Herzogs indication that the office will be slow to respond to FOI requests, such as hers on the new media policy. There is, by the way, no FOI exemption for draft versions of city paperwork such as documents that have undoubtedly been produced as Scott moves toward a proposal on a police review board. Scotts responses to questions about this and other matters, such as the media policy, will tell us a lot about his vow to be transparent. Note to the mayor: Your texts and e-mails to Jackson, Pruitt and other advisers ARE public information.
Wildcountry will play Verizon Arena Saturday night.Sort of.You may not recall that country super group Alabama was formed in 1969 in Fort Payne, Ala., as Wildcountry by singer Randy Owen, bassist Teddy Gentry and guitarist and fiddler Jeff Cook.In 1977 the band changed its name to Alabama, and the rest, as they say, is history. Mountain Music, Song of the South, Love in the First Degree, If Youre Gonna Play in Texas You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band, The Closer You Get, She and I, and, well, the list, like that 18 wheeler in one of their songs, rolls on.So its Alabama that will be taking the stage in North Little Rock. The groups 50th Anniversary Tour kicks off at 7 p.m. Saturday with a performance by the Charlie Daniels Band.For more music, check out The Salty Dogs at Four Quarter Bar, where they will be playing an unofficial afterparty for the Alabama concert from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Former Arkansas Pollution Control and Ecology Commission members have released a statement opposing SB 550, the bill intended to make it easier for operators of factory farms to dispose of, particularly, pig manure.The billtransfers regulation of disposal of liquid animal waste from the Department of Environmental Quality to the farmer-friendly Natural Resources Commission, effectively negating any past regulation of, among others, the Buffalo River watershed and perhaps even the C and H factory hog farm near Mount Judea,though backers of the bill dispute that. The bill is so bad that Gov. Asa Hutchinson has spoken out against the Farm Bureau-backed measure, part of a national Farm Bureau effort to ease environmental regulations. In addition to threatening water through percolation though limestone formations, the massive land application of the waste is building up tremendous amounts of phosphorous that can wash into waterways.The statement:, sent to leaders of the House Agriculture, Forestry and Economic Development Committee, where the Senate-passed bill goes next week: We the undersigned who are former members of the Arkansas Pollution Control & Ecology Commission write to express our opposition to SB550. The development of Regulation 5, which this act would negate, was a careful process. It involved negotiations with appropriate state agencies, the Arkansas Attorney General, critical stakeholders including the Arkansas Pork Producers, the Farm Bureau, the Arkansas Poultry Federation, various environmental organizations, the general public, and the Environmental Protection Agency. In addition, there were public hearings held across the state. The regulatory framework that the Commission established through that process provided all interested parties the right to participate in the permitting process and to appeal final decisions on permits for the management of liquid animal waste. Furthermore, we do not see the necessity to transfer this authority from ADEQ and the PC&E Commission or how this change will improve the regulatory process or the protections in place for the environment or those affected by decisions regarding these facilities. Eliminating ADEQsprogram has the potential to result in heightened scrutiny and additional regulation by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The bill that is under consideration which would replace the current regulatory program lacks the components of the existing program discussed above and may be rife with unintende consequences as the attached letter suggests. In closing, we believe that ADEQ and the PC&E Commission are uniquely qualified to administer the liquid animal waste permitting program in a manner to satisfy federal requirements for public participation and appeal rights. For these reasons, we urge you to vote against SB550. Tom Schueck Dr. John Simpson Allen Carter Dr. Joseph Bates Randy Wilbourn John Chamberlin Julia Mobley Tri Watkins Ann HenryThe Farm Bureau and the rural members of the legislature are a powerful combination. They dont have much fear of environmentalists. Absent the passion for the algae-clogged Buffalo River, this probably would be no debate at all.
