|FREDDIE BLACK - NEWLY APPOINTED ABC BOARD CHAIRMAN|
Governor Asa Hutchinson has appointed Freddie Black, a banker from Lake Village, to replace Dan Greenberg as ABC Board Chairman.
He may be out of his comfort zone as he is not an attorney and will have to rely on the legal acumen of the new ABC staff attorney, Michael Nelon Harry, who does not appear to be the sharpest tool in the shed (he mistook the word "get" for "bet" in a recent board meeting) to guide him.
Black has served previously on other state boards and will be the third ABC Board Chairman in the Hutchinson Administration.
You will not want to miss his inaugural meeting tomorrow as he will be introduced to attorney Stephen Morley as he gets to pound the board for their foolish decision to deny a permit to El Almacen in Searcy.
|ATTORNEY STEPHEN MORLEY - RACKS UP ANOTHER WIN AGAINST THE ABC BOARD|
No doubt Morley will be able to secure a permit for El Amacen, in this court ordered re-do, as the reason that they were originally denied was that an ABC Enforcement Agent instructed them to violate ABC Rules and Regulations and place a notice away from the front entrance.
After this board meeting, Gov. Hutchinson may be looking for a replacement for Black.
