What it means to remember

What it means to remember

Ten years ago, at the time this article was posted -- 8:46 am New York time -- American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Seventeen minutes later at 9:03 am, United Airlines Flight 175 struck the South Tower. At 9:37 am, American Airlines Flight 77 flew into the west wing of the Pentagon. And at 10:03, United Airlines flight 93 crashed in a Pennsylvania field. Its likely target: the White House.

2,977 Americans lost their lives that day.

It's hard to believe ten years have passed since then. Most of us remember the images: the violent explosions; smoke billowing from the impacts; the first, then second tower collapsing; people leaping to their deaths because there was no other way to escape the flames.

How horrific it must have been for those present. Shockwaves rippled through the city streets as shattered glass and searing ash rained furiously from the sky.

'Sound Off' Episode 4: Stonewall Democrats

'Sound Off' Episode 4: Stonewall Democrats

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (RSM) -- Our third interview is with Eric McDaniel of the Stonewall Democrats, a gay activist political organization that made headlines recently when addressed by Gov. Beebe earlier this year. CLICK HERE to listen.

Stonewall was caught up in controversy when leaders in the organization refused to publicly criticize the governor for making what some viewed as unfavorable remarks regarding gay rights in Arkansas. McDaniel has taken heat for this decision, and addresses that here in this interview. What do you think? Should the Stonewall Democrats have rebuked Gov. Beebe's comments, or did they do the right thing?

Auditors cite college tuition increases

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Tuition costs for Arkansas colleges and universities have been on the rise for some time now, and it's caught the attention of state officials who claim more than half of the institutions have exceeded inflation rates.

State auditors say 26 of 32 institutions exceeded the 11.6 percent inflation rate, while the news comes as no surprise for education officials, students are fed up.

A win lose situation is what UALR junior John Whaley says he's experiencing. He says, "I really think they should lower it down for students especially with the economy the way it is right now."

He's not alone. In fact, students at 26 campuses across the state may have very similar feelings over rising tuition rates. Whaley says, "I think it's an advantage and a disadvantage without tuition or whatever."

Friday state auditors announced that out of 32 colleges and universities across the state, 26 have exceeded the 11.6 percent inflation rate.
