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.
