Poke around the school's website and the student newspaper, and you will learn a lot about the school.

How fascinating that newspaper is.

People are sick of politics dictating everything. It's a bad way to live and a bad example to set for future generations.

If you interpret that as "self righteous" so be it.

I'm actually pulling for Mike to make the move to NWA. I just don't think politics should play a role in his decision if that's where his heart is leading him.

Pretty simple.

I think the picture of Fayetteville is that it is nearly evenly divided between liberals and conservatives with the edge toward liberals. Clinton got the most votes in '16, but Trump got a large number of votes in each ward.

What is unsettling to me in thinking of retiring there is the chance of tornadoes. Looks like Fayetteville averages two a year. Yikes!

they just say, if Fayetterville actually averages 2 tornadoes a year someone might want to tell the people who live there this. Or lets just say tornadoes that do any damage. I have lived in NWA almost 10 years now, can't remember a single tornado in Fayetteville that was news worthy. The year of the Joplin tornado which was about 6 years ago, there were several in the area that did minor damage. It was a scary night for most of us. That was the only time I can remember where there was something worth talking about.

In ten years I am not aware of any tornadoes touching down in Fayetteville. It seems like maybe there was some minor tornado damage in outlying areas of the county, but that's it.

I'm interested to know where you found that data. Arkansas hasn't had a major storm like those that hit OKC regularly, or the Joplin storm, or the Alabama storms, that I am aware of.

The worst tornadoes in Arkansas seem to frequently hit the Conway/Vilonia/Mayflower vicinity for whatever reason. They've had some giant twisters of ill repute over there. Kinda Arkansas' own little tornado alley.

"Also note the overwhelming support for medical marijuana, which the state as a whole passed, and will be available early 2018."

It's about time! Now for the rest of the south. And I might add that I am conservative.

I thought I had deleted that post because I had closed the site where I had gotten the 2 tornado/year information, for one thing.
It took me a while to find it again -- there is an amazing number of sites with information on Arkansas tornadoes, but that one tidbit I found here: Moderator cut: Link removed, linking to competitor sites is not allowed
I can't vouch for the information, but NOAA and other sites do agree that Arkansas gets about 26 tornadoes a year, I believe, and there are plenty of tornado track maps that show the touchdown/path for tornadoes in the area, but these sites do not make it clear, or clear enough, that these can be F1 or F2 storms that do little damage (thank goodness).
Anyway, I'm glad my post got put up although I didn't mean for it to because now I have heard from you and one other poster that you haven't experienced a tornado in the last ten years! That's good to know.

Gosh, I read em all, and the only post that remotely seemed self righteous was the one that complained about it.
