IN YOUR OPINION/End of a tradition? Should AHS, THS make resuming the rivalry a priority?

The Arkansas High School Razorbacks and Texas High Tigers have not played their traditional intercity rivalry game for the past two years due to COVID-19 concerns.

Now it looks like they won’t be playing for the foreseeable future.

No Arkansas-Texas game is scheduled for 2022 or 2023.

The underlying reasoning puzzles some locals. TISD says it’s a game they would consider if the programming allowed. TASD did not respond to a request for comment last week.

For many, the annual game is something they always look forward to. And given the good attendance in the past, we’re sure it would be popular if the game resumed.

We want to know what you think. Should TASD and TISD make getting crosstown play back every year a priority? Or do you think the annual tradition is less important these days?

Last week: responsibility?

Last week’s question concerned a proposal by the San Jose, Calif., City Council to require gun owners to carry liability insurance and pay an annual fee to offset the city’s annual expenses resulting from suicides, murders and other gun-related violence. Would you agree to requiring gun owners to purchase liability insurance? How about an annual fee? Or are you against one or both ideas?

Absolutely, gun owners should have insurance. I am in favor of an annual membership fee and/or liability insurance. Gunmakers don’t want to pay when someone decides to shoot people, and families end up with hospital bills, funerals and casualties. I say, someone has to pay for the gun owners “joy” of owning a gun, so buckle up gun owners and get some insurance. Gun owners don’t get mad at the victims, get mad at the manufacturers and the NRA (who make millions of dollars.) — RK, Texarkana, TX

Yes – Not all gun owners respect a gun as they should. Liability insurance is required for all vehicles because when someone is negligent, it can cause a lot of damage. A gun is no different. This is a matter of personal responsibility, not a matter of the Second Amendment. –JW, Texarkana, TX

No and no.

No period.

– If we’re going to talk about what taxpayers have to pay, then I’ve got a hell of a list I don’t want to pay for.

– To hell with that. Commiefornia can do whatever it wants, but let the idiots do this shit.

– This isn’t California, and that dog won’t hunt here.

– Of course, if you live in the Socialist Republic of California and are stupid enough to admit ownership, you have to pay a fine. (I mean fees) as for me, I don’t believe in guns. I prefer to live on my knees.

– No.

– So, all of you who say no, you’re also completely against car insurance, aren’t you?

– Gun violence is what costs the city money. I’m sure these people will have insurance!

-Lmao. I think we could raise more money faster by fining politicians every time they waste the Supreme Court’s time!

– Fees and insurance. Law enforcement nightmare, but a step in the right direction.

– I guess people for that are also for poll taxes.

– No, no, oh and no.

– Even if all law-abiding citizens were insured, not all gangsters would be!
