Having the Bible as the state book, is not pushing religion down anyone's throat. was there anything in the article that said the proposal was passed or is about to be passed?

As for what did our fore fathers mean? You do not really know, nor do I. It is a matter of opinion and interpretation.

Last but not least, I have said it over and over: I am not in favor of the proposal at all, but I am not going to lose any sleep over it either way. I rest my case. I doubt we will hear another word about it.
I didn't call anyone stupid for believing in anything. What I meant was that the legislators sponsoring this, as well as anyone in favor of pushing this through, is an idiot.
I didn't find out about this by googling. I just saw in on C-D.
I get that you aren't in favor of it (never said you were) but you are wrong to think this has no chance of passing and will never be heard of again. Okay, maybe the chances are low, but that doesn't mean you wont hear about it again.

My understanding is that six miles isn't enough of a buffer since there is a tributary river nearby and porous karst terrain which allows waste to seep through as a faster rate than non-karst.

Maybe someone can write a book about that whole ordeal and it could be the state book.

There is no 6 mile buffer regarding the Buffalo River. The "rule of thumb" that the feds used was "as far as the eye could see from river level", looking up the hills either side, they took to establish the 1st National River. My farm was less than 1 mile from the river in Loafers Glory, Searcy County. It was part of a larger farm that was on both sides of the river....until the feds used the eminent domain statute to take the center out of the farm which bordered the river. This google maps earth view will show where the farm is in relation to the river....go to the map view and zoom out to see the park boundry. Loved my time there...was 2 miles to the nearest neighbor.

However, all of this has nothing to do with the original thread intent....so, back to the discussion.

I never said there was a 6 mile buffer law .


I read that the farm is 6 miles from the river thus not right on the river like a poster stated.

Back to the specific topic. Arkansas has some really interesting books that characterize the people of the state. Some are probably more specific to region such as Ozarks, Ouachitas, Delta, etc., but there is something out there. I like the idea of True Grit by Charles Portis. I've read it and have seen the John Wayne movie. I can't remember if Judge Parker is mentioned. Rooster Cogburn is modeled off of his deputies.

Article on the hog farm mentioned above. Sounds like it's too close to the river to me.

I support that hog farm 100%!


They went above and beyond what was required of them.

"They went above and beyond what was required of them." Maybe....maybe not;

Apparently those who have been investigating since 2013 are not so sure.

more info

from a link in the above article.

But all this has nothing to do with the book....do we need a new thread ?
