Lawrence school board to hear proposal for naming Lawrence High football field after famed coach

Someone needs a history lesson if they believe "they didn't have a great winning tradition". Al Woolard's tenure brought many state championships to Lawrence High.

Letter: No-call strategy

Thankfully I have caller ID. If I don't recognize the number calling, I don't answer. If it's that important they can leave a message.

Paul, just as you know people you consider to be racist who fly that flag, I know some who have the flag and are not racist-rather, they see the flag as a symbol of being a proud rebel. The Dukes of Hazzard boys flew this symbol but I don't recall any episodes where they displayed any racism whatsoever, just a symbol on their car. Period. If you are convinced that anyone who doesn't condemn this flag is a racist, then that's your right. You can be as close minded as those you accuse.

I would bet that many of those who feel the confederate flag is racist is because somebody told them it's racist. They probably have no independent feelings about it. They think and feel how they're told to.

Or, people could just ignore him. Of course, there are those who can never ignore something they disagree with. "We have to make him think just like us" is some folks' mantra.

I think this very mindset (banning the flag) is why some of our "higher education" institutions have to create "safe spaces" where the exceedingly fragile students can hide from the possibility of being exposed to anything they might find offensive or uncomfortable. They are in for a big surprise when they get out in the real world!

Letter: Wrong focus

I think Trump's campaign is all about getting Hillary Clinton elected president. If the media helps Trump win the GOP nomination, Hillary is president.

City won't approve cemetery as wedding venue

I visited a cemetery in Harrison Arkansas several years ago, because the fall colors were rumored to be outstanding. I saw 3 different wedding parties having their formal photos taken there.

Parks and Rec is probably afraid somebody might smoke.

Free State High School student told Confederate flag not allowed at school

No, it's a place in the state highly populated with self-righteous bigoted (in their own way) know-it-alls who delight in talking down to anyone who has an opinion that differs from theirs.
