Shella Atlas (59), who was recently hired by the City of Little Rock to be the Labor and Employee Relations Manager in their Human Resources Department might need to hone up on the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act.

Atlas, who prior to her employment by the city was a substitute teacher at Little Rock Adventist Academy, told us yesterday that we could not make a verbal FOIA request.  Atlas demanded that our request be made in written form before she would accept it.  Atlas also stated that only paper copies of the documents would be made available.

Perhaps someone should  enlighten "Dr." Atlas as to the particulars of the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act.

Under the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act a verbal request is just as good as a written one and the requester can ask for the material requested to be provided in an electronic format.


We spoke with city attorney Tom Carpenter who was dismayed that Atlas was so out of touch with transparency laws.


"Oh that's not good", Carpenter stated, when apprised of what Atlas had said.  "Usually we write down the request and repeat it back to make sure we have it correctly" added Carpenter.

Carpenter fired off an email to Stacey Witherell, Director of Human Resources for the City of Little Rock.

Witherell is no stranger to controversy as this story from the Arkansas Times 
last year revealed when she got sideways with Mayor Mark Stodola over a position he wanted for his personal staff.


The information we are seeking concerns Carl Daniels, a former city employee that is currently involved in an internal investigation at the Arkansas Military Department where she is tenuously employed.

It also appears that Atlas, a/k/a Shella Kalu, a/k/a Shella Ellis, a/k/a Shella Guiovana has a history of criminal activity.

As stewards of goodwill, we have obtained a nice certificate that Atlas can proudly display, next to her Argosy diploma, in her office or cubicle.


In case you have never heard of Argosy University, it is a well-know diploma mill and ran into a little legal trouble not too long ago  which resulted in a multi-millon dollar settlement.


Perhaps the City of Little Rock should hire individual's based on experience and not to fill a racial quota.
