I'm a very observant person, especially with the land and the seasons. This past Sunday, I noticed the ground cover leaves in the forested areas of my land are starting to turn colors- from green to shades of yellow, orange, and red. This happens every year but it never happens in early July. I usually see this start to happen in mid August. It's happening as far as I can see into the woods in both sunny and shaded areas. This is very unusual.
man,I guess unusual.

Former Arkansas AD Jeff Long was hired today as the new athletic director at Kansas. His contract with Kansas will make him the 2nd highest paid at that position in the Big 12, behind only the Oklahoma AD.


Not sure what Jeff did previously to earn all that, but more power to him. Kansas is a pressure cooker for basketball, so he's got his work cut out for him there. On that note, the Kansas basketball program is apparently under some sort of investigation, and Long has it in his contract that if they get put on probation his contract automatically gets extended until the probation is lifted.


Wow. Someone out there likes Jeff Long!

heard this on the news last night. I guess for some getting fired is a good thing. Good luck to him, but that doesn't I would want him back here at any price.

I hope they're paying those people more than they've made in recent times. I commend anyone who is brave enough to become an officer of the law in this day & age. We need them. God bless them all in safety and security.

I know the duck boat accident happened up at Table Rock in Missouri, but 2 of the victims were from Arkansas. What a horrible, and unfortunately VERY preventable, tragedy. We diverted up into the Branson area during one of our many Arkansas getaways and Table Rock Lake is another beautiful Ozark setting. Heartbreaking to know that 17 people perished while simply trying to enjoy being there as we did.

SALARY: Recruits begin earning a salary upon their initial report to the Arkansas State Police Training Academy. The entry salary for an Arkansas State Trooper Recruit is $40,340 effective July 2, 2017. After four and years as a commissioned officer, the employee becomes eligible for a promotion to the rank of ASP Trooper First Class, receiving a salary increase of 10% or an increase to the entry pay level of $45,010, whichever is greater. After seven and years as a commissioned officer, the employee becomes eligible for a promotion to the rank of ASP Corporal, receiving a salary increase of 10% or an increase to the entry pay level of $50,222, whichever is greater.


I remember when I started in south Arkansas 40 years ago I was paid $630 a month and had to buy my own uniforms, firearm, and equipment.

$20 an hour isn't worth risking your life in my opinion. I'm not a fan of police, but they still have families and are risking their lives for the public.. I think 40k a year is laughable for what they have to put up with.

I am a huge supporter of law enforcement and as to the salary they are paid; no it doesn't sound like much, but normally there are good benefits and many do not have a lot of education. Have you checked to see how much an enlisted man or woman in the military makes? For many $40.000 a year isn't all that bad. I do wish they were paid double than amount but I also see both sides to the payment scale.
