ARA: Housing numbers down due to severe weather

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The Arkansas REALTORS Association released its April 2011 Housing Report this morning.  The report shows the number of homes sold in the 42 county area covered by the report were down 23 percent compared to the same month last year and that average prices for the month were down two percent.   Director of Communications for the Association, Amy Glover Bryant, attributes the decrease to the record amount of rainfall and severe weather the state experienced throughout the month of April and to the ending of the first time home buyer's tax credit.  “As we anticipated the 13 days of rain and severe weather Arkansas experience

Playing pirate just isn't fun anymore

Playing pirate just isn't fun anymore

The first question that comes to mind is, "Why in the world would they make another Pirates movie?" The first one was fun, the second one too long, and the third one too confusing for a film that was based on a theme park ride. The franchise seemed to wrap itself up nicely, so why would they make another one?

The answer is money. The studio knows that people will go see it. I read that Johnny Depp was paid $55 million to resume the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, which brings me to two conclusions: either he had no interest in playing the role again and that was that magical number of zeros it took, or he is such a smart man that he knows how much money a fourth "Pirates of the Caribbean" film would make and that the studio knew it would sink without him manning the wheel.

Reaction to judge's desegregation lawsuit ruling

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - U.S. District Judge Brian Miller shook up Central Arkansas school systems Thursday with a ruling that the state no longer has to provide funds to central Arkansas school districts, to achieve desegregation. It means a loss of $70 million to Little Rock, North Little Rock and Pulaski County schools.

Baker Kurrus, a former Little Rock School District board member, was a guest on "Today's THV at 6:30," and talked about what the ruling means.

His main point was that now all three districts will need to become self sustaining and can no longer count on the rest of the state to supplement programs.

According to Kurrus, this means in Little Rock, that academic waste can no longer be tolerated. He sees a loss of jobs but also a tightening of the operation as being a good thing.
