Planning commissioners focus on infill development, housing regulations during retreat

I often find the tone of Fayetteville planners to have such an elitist and superficial sound. They wring their hands about a lack of affordable housing and sigh and moan about concepts that make houses more affordable, like a front loading garage (ugghh, i’m so repulsed, ‘snout house’). Working class people often prefer more space and utilitarian functions over more expensive design and exterior architectural elements that these city planners always praise and promote.

Panel’s economic focus ruffles caucus

A better question for Walker and the Black Caucus is what are YOU doing to make South Arkansas a more attractive place for an employer to locate themselves?

And from the projects listed, it sounds like jobs are coming to places in rural areas and South Arkansas. It sounds more like Walker doesn’t know what’s happening in the area he represents.

Lowell Grisham: A gift that keeps giving

In California, the state senate just passed bill establishing a 'medicare for all' program. However, the bill was killed in the state house by the democrat leadership because the bill setup the program but provided absolutely no funding mechanisms.

The problem is the program would cost $400 billion to implement in California. The total state budget this year is $183 billion. So if they could just find a way to more than double the revenue collected by the state, then everyone could have 'FREE' healthcare for all.
