Ex NLR mayor's mug won't be rockin' sculpture

Patrick Henry Hays stands at the future site of North Little Rock’s giant Big Rock bluff sculptures. Hays formally withdrew his name from consideration.

Dear Otus, We have a spectacular view of the Big Rock Quarry bluffs from our condo on the south side of the river. We're a little concerned now that they plan to sculpt the thing into "Mount Rockmore." Is the sandstone even suitable for that? Do they plan to use dynamite on it? And who do they plan to carve other than Bill Clinton? I hope it's not Pat Hays. Does the public get to vote? -- Ralph Patrick, Little Rock
