Moore on MaumelleWeek of Sept. 16, 2013Is there anything more fun than football?
I love it when football starts again! There is just no better time of theyear for sports lovers. You can watch multiple NFL games on Sunday,including a game on Sunday night, and then again on Monday night.And you can purchase a “ticket” on satellite and literally watch everyNFL game starting around noon till 10 p.m.And if that’s not enough, you can play “Fantasy Football” and createyour own season each Monday using a roster you “drafted” from all theNFL players.College games will often play on Thursday nights, high school gameson Friday and then college again all day Saturday. There are millions of guys (and gals) wearing out their TV remotes (and rear ends),switching from game to game.Maumelle has a great high school facility (with fake grass) and plays inthe 4A conference with several home games scheduled. Watch theBoulevard banner to let you know when they are in town. Nearby CACalso plays in the 4A conference and has a nice stadium for watchingprep ballers.What a country.
Kum and Go has us surrounded
I think Kum and Go is the best convenience store on the planet. Theyare clean, well organized and the people are friendly and even helpful.Now our second Maumelle-area store is open on the north end of thecity, right across the street from my favorite meat market, Tommy’s. The company is based in Iowa and operates over 400 stores in 11states.
Convenience Store News
ranks it as the 23rd-largestconvenience store chain in the United States. The largest chain is 7-Eleven with almost 6,000 stores.(more)
Page 2 of 3One of the impressive things about a Kum and Go is they areconstantly putting out fresh food from their kitchen, includingbreakfast sandwiches, pizza, cold sandwiches, etc. And I believe theyare the only place in the Maumelle area you can buy “E-85 gas.” E-85is generally 20 cents cheaper, but your car has to be equipped to burnit. The 85 means it has 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent “regular”gas.I also want to give the Valero station credit for cleaning and fixing up. The others should take notice.
Traffic and texting make the Boulevard a war zone
 The traffic is back on the Boulevard and with it comes the rude, creepypeople who feel like they have to win the race to get to I-430. Theypass on the left and cut back in on the right before they get to thefreeway. They take Crystal Hill and try to cut in at various cross-streets along the Boulevard. You can only gain about three to fiveminutes by cheating, so just take a chill pill and listen to music or anaudio book.Add in texting and people on the phone and we’ll have several rear-enders through the school year. Ya’ll be careful out there and quittexting! I’m sure whoever it is you’re texting can wait till you get towork so you can do it on your employer’s time.
Another one bites the dust
Lt. Governor Mark Darr dropped his bid for the Fourth CongressionalDistrict race after being caught red-handed misspending campaignfunds for personal expenses. The good thing is, we hopefully getanother bad guy out of politics and send a warning flare to otherpoliticians that people are watching. Kudos to the Blue Hog Report forthe tedious research and reporting. Blue Hog is a blog run by lawyer,Matt Campbell. If you enjoy in-the-trench politics, give it look atbluehogreport.com.
