State Capitol Week In Review T

FROM SENATOR LARRY TEAGUE

he Arkansas Public School Academic Facilities and Transportation Commission has approved more than $42 million in state aid to local school districts for new construction and repairs to keep schools safe, warm and dry. About $3.2 billion have been spent on 2,453 projects since 2006. The state has provided $1.34 billion of that amount and school districts match the funding, at a rate that depends on their locally generated wealth. In the 2007 regular session the legislature approved spending $456 million of the state’s surplus on school facilities. That fiscal year the surplus was much larger than usual. The Arkansas Supreme Court soon released the state from under court jurisdiction in the long-running Lake View school funding case. The court ruled that the state’s public school system was adequate and equitably funded, as mandated by the states’ Constitution. From 2006 through 2017, the state has spent an average of $86.5 million annually on construction and major renovation projects in public schools. The major part of facilities funding is through the Partnership Program, which is structured so that relatively poor school districts receive a higher proportion of state aid than a prosperous district. The intent is to level the playing field between districts that can and those that cannot afford new facilities. Approval of the state facilities program led to an increase on the part of school districts to raise debt service mills, in order to generate local revenue with which to match the available state aid. The number of districts in Arkansas has changed since then, because of mergers, but since 2005 there have been 168 attempts on the part of 235 districts to increase their debt service mills. On average during school elections since 2005, about 42 percent of proposed increases in debt service mills have failed. Some districts have been successful raising millages only after a second or third try, and 19 districts have failed each time they placed a millage increase on the ballot. At the beginning of this school year, legislative staff conducted a confidential survey of school principals to determine their perceptions of the physical condition of their buildings. By November, 541 principals had responded. About half, 51 percent, said that their buildings were in good shape overall, while 25 percent said that their buildings were in excellent shape. Of the remaining principals, 20 percent rated their buildings as fair and three percent said their school buildings were in poor shape. Those responses were compared with measures of how many low-income students attended each school. Schools in fair or poor condition had more low-income students, but only slightly more. In the schools that are in poor or fair condition, 65 percent of the students are from low-income families. In the good and excellent schools, 60 percent of students are low-income. Another survey question asked principals if their buildings are large enough. Almost 70 percent said that their buildings had enough space, or more than enough space for the entire student body. A quarter of the principals said their schools needed to be larger to accommodate all their students, and five percent said they had enough space but it was poorly arranged. The overwhelming majority of principals, nearly 80 percent, were satisfied with the general suitability of their school facilities.

Bucks XC Signs Northside’s Mena Water and Utilities Announces Mendez Twins news@mypulsenews.com Flush Notice M PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT

STAFF -

arlenne and Miriam Mendez, from Fort Smith Northside, signed letters of intent to join the UA Rich Mountain Bucks Cross Country team on Friday, May 4th, at Northside High School. Marlenne and Miriam are the third and fourth signees for the women’s team. Initially, Coach Samantha Shores attended a track meet at Mansfield and discovered Marlenne. “Marlenne is a very relaxed runner and runs in her own element. She had a great showing in the 3200 meter run, and I knew she was one that I wanted for my team. It was a great surprise to find out that she has a twin sister (Miriam) that runs as well. We knew this would be a packaged deal and couldn’t be more excited. The twins are the first student-athletes we have signed outside of our three county service area (Polk, Scott, and Montgomery Counties).” Athletic Director Morris Boydstun added, “We are excited about the addition of Marlenne and Miriam to our Cross Country program. By adding these two ladies to our program, it will ensure a successful first year based on the quality individuals they are. It was obvious to me how important family is to these young student athletes, and we hope that continues with the new cross country family we are creating here. I would also like to thank Coach Lewis for his involvement in this process, we wish to continue building relationships in the Fort Smith area and particularly with Fort Smith Northside.” UA Rich Mountain is located in Mena with satellite campuses in Waldron and Mt. Ida. Cross Country is the first athletics program in school history at UA Rich Mountain. The program will kick off its inaugural season in September. For more information about UA Rich Mountain and Bucks Cross Country, email athletics@uarichmountain.edu or call 479-394-6825.

Mena Water Utilities will again be conducting our bi-annual water main flushing program during the week of May 21 st thru May 24 th . Mena Water has scheduled the lines on the south side of Highway 71 including the Nunley and Board Camp areas for flushing on Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday and Thursday the lines on the north side of Highway 71 are scheduled to be flushed. Flushing is done as a part of a scheduled preventative maintenance program to help maintain good water quality and to improve the water flow in the water distribution system. As Mena Water flushes your area, you may experience a temporary reduction in water pressure. You may also see some color and/or sand in your water, or you may notice a slight change in the taste and odor of your water. These conditions are normal during flushing activities, and only temporary. If you should experience any of these changes, or if you see some cloudiness or rust color in your water, Mena Water recommends that you refrain from washing light colored laundry; likewise, we recommend that you flush the pipes of your home or business. Flushing of your home or business pipes is accomplished by opening your front outside hose bib until it runs clear and has no noticeable taste or odor. Mena Water regrets any inconvenience the flushing may cause you. If you have any questions or if you experience any persistent water quality problems as a result of this maintenance program please call Mena Water Utilities at 479-394- 2761.

Predators Harvest Photos from Hashtags

National Salvation Army Week

LESLIE RUTLEDGE

P

osting pictures of your children under seemingly innocent hashtags has a sinister side and could put them on the radar of child predators. With summer quickly approaching, Arkansans must know that predators search common hashtags looking for pictures to sell, trade or use for their own pleasure – including, but not limited to, photos of common summertime activities such as swimming, bath time and sleepovers. “Parents commonly post pictures of their children to share with family and friends, but what they don’t realize is they may be putting their children in danger,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “Hashtags make it easy to share the joys and hardships of parenthood with others, but predators will use those same hashtags, like #bathtime or #toddlerbikini, to find pictures for their own twisted use.” The Child Rescue Coalition issued the following questions parents should ask themselves before posting an image of children online: • Why am I sharing this? • Would I want someone else to share an image like this of me? • Would I want this image of my child viewed and downloaded by predators on the Dark Web? • Is this something I want to be part of my child’s digital life? Predators near and far can harvest photos that most would consider cherished or fun childhood memories, and distribute them a number of ways – including but not limited to the Dark Web. Arkansas parents should always use extreme caution when posting any pictures of their child online. Arkansans can report child exploitation by calling the National CyberTipline, (800) 843-5678, or visit CyberTipline.com. To report child abuse, call the Arkansas State Police Child Abuse Hotline, (800) 4825964, or, in the event of an emergency, dial 911 or a local law enforcement agency. For more information about consumer-related issues, contact the Arkansas Attorney General’s office at (800) 482-8982 or consumer@ArkansasAG.gov or visitArkansasAG.gov or facebook.com/ AGLeslieRutledge.

Thank You To Our Officers A

BY ANDY RINER

s big city politicians debate what they are calling the "opioid epidemic," we in Polk County continue to see the deleterious effects of methamphetamine use as public enemy number one. Methamphetamine use is the driving force behind most of the thefts, burglaries, domestic batteries, sexual abuse, and other violent crimes in our community. Citizens of this county can rest assured that law enforcement officers from all agencies are often working together to fight this enemy. To make matters difficult for law enforcement officers, pennypinching politicians lecture law enforcement officials about the perceived

need for "prison reform." Law enforcement supervisors are continually lectured by high ranking officials armed with such brilliant catchphrases as, "we only need to incarcerate the people who we are scared of, instead of those who we are mad at." Such sound bites roll easily off the tongues of those who live behind gates and travel with a security team, but should a police officer really have to tell the victim of a theft that he must first investigate the eight core criminogenic needs of the thief before considering the effects of the crime? Rather than lecturing, law enforcement in this community produces results. Because of the combined efforts of city, county, and state law enforcement in the past six months illicit drugs valued at over $461,500 have been removed from our community. During the same period, law enforcement seized over 770 individual doses of methamphetamine. These efforts saw serious offenders receive a total of 2,900 months of incarceration. Non-violent and first-time offenders drug offenders received a total 1,644 months of

probation. Our over-worked and underappreciated probation officers worked long hours, despite the current political headwinds, to ensure that offenders followed the law. Law enforcement is not just about seizing drugs and taking "bad guys" to jail. In this modern era, our local law enforcement officers must develop comprehensive strategies to offer healing to those who desire it. Few people consider that drug arrests are often the only interventions that can encourage drug offenders to address a substance abuse problem. In order to avoid prison, drug offenders will often voluntarily seek substance abuse treatment through the drug court program. Because of these interventions, in 2017-2018 our drug court treatment team was able to help 21 citizens of our community find the path to sobriety and productivity through the drug court program. Like the ministry of the Gospel, law enforcement is a calling. It is not a call to the indolent. It is a call to long hours and time away from family. It is a call to respond to situations that are usually hopeless and sometimes even dangerous. It is a call to defend the sovereignty of the State of Arkansas against those who dare breach her peace. Though their pay is low, their calling is high. Officers, I end with an exhortation. In this era of selfaggrandizement, distinguish yourselves not by glorifying self but by serving the people, and may the God who called you to this line of work be with you as you protect and serve!

Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.

BUSINESS & FINANCE More Students are Going to Grad School: How are They Paying for It? (StatePoint) Career aspirations are driving more students to graduate school these days, and nearly two thirds believe an advanced degree is the new minimum standard level of education for any professional occupation. According to “How America Pays for Graduate School,” the new national study from Sallie Mae and Ipsos, an independent global market research company, nearly all grad students (95 percent) said an advanced degree is necessary to enter, advance, accelerate or remain competi tive in their chosen career. Cost is less of a factor in the enrollment decision than it is at the undergraduate level, as more than eight in 10 surveyed based their enrollment decision on a school’s academic offerings, prestige, location, campus culture, or other personal consideration. However, eight in 10 grad students said they took more responsibility for paying-for-school decisions than they had for their undergraduate studies. “It is human nature to plan for what you value, and that includes graduate school. Today’s students see graduate school as their ticket to a successful and prosperous career, and most have a plan to pay for their advanced degree before they enroll,” says Raymond J. Congratulations, Graduates Quinlan, chairman and CEO, Sallie Mae. “That planning pays off: the overwhelming majori ty are confident in the financial decisions they’ve made about how to pay for their graduate Call or visit your Edward Jones financial advisor education.” to start your future with a solid strategy. How much did they pay? Students spent an average of $24,812 on grad school in academic year 2016-17, and more than three-fourths of them (77 percent) paid for it, at Ginger Sterner least in part, by borrowing.
