|PULASKI COUNTY SHERIFF DOC HOLLADAY SHOWS OFF NEW WESTERN GEAR FOR DEPUTIES|
The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office is changing up it's uniforms at an estimated cost of $215,000. They are spending $24,633.58 for cowboys hats (120 Stetson black felt hats at $155 each) and 142 Resistol straw hats (at $42.49 each); $6,043.20 for 120 hat covers (at $50.36 each); $10,199 for 120 black Roper boots with spurs (at $84.99 each) and $179,800 for 120 Colt Peacemaker pistols (at $1,499 each).
Sheriff Doc Holladay said "the money was available and we needed to improve our image." It's the third image revamp Holladay has instituted since he was elected in 2006. He changed the uniform color from dark blue to tan, the vehicle colors from white with blue stripes to black and gold.
"I wanted our uniforms to resemble those from the Andy Griffith Show to make folks feel more comfortable with us," said Holladay. "The black and gold for the cars is from a tiger. Tigers are bad ass animals and we wanted to project that we are bad asses too," quipped Holladay.
Deputies say the new gear makes they feel better about themselves and more like real lawmen.

The idea was proposed by Little Rock Board of Director Joan Adcock and her

The identification would include a picture, name, address, birth date. The service would benefit the homeless and those without legal U.S. documentation, Adcock said.
“The people we’ve talked to said, ‘This would give us an identity, show we belong, that we are a part of the city,’” she said.
The ID card could not be used to purchase tobacco or alcohol products.
A homeless man we spoke to about the city issued ID cards had this to say about usefulness of the cards. "That damn card would not be worth nuthin' if I couldn't get some smokes or a pint", quipped a familiar street-corner panhandler that goes by the name "Dirty Dan".

|HUTCHINSON INDICATES THE SIZE OF TRUMP'S TOOL|
Gov. Hutchinson is backing up Marco Rubio, his choice for the President, regarding remarks Rubio made about the size of Trump's love muscle.
Hutchinson, in a press briefing told reporters that when he was head of the DEA, he met Trump at a sporting event and they ended up in the men's room at the same time. "I glanced over at Trump while he were standing at one of those long urinals, I saw that he didn't have much to work with", Hutchinson remarked.
Hutchinson then stated that he had seen Rubio's willy as well and "it is much larger than Trump's."
When contacted for a comment, Trump stated "my penis, which by the way is named The Zamboni Baloney, is more than adequate. Ask Rubio's wife and she will tell you."
