It was a big lie to get a shirt-term sales tax increase. They don't do anything around here to bring enjoyment to us

If the soil isn't right why didn't they know that before they started? There are other lakes in the area and they seem OK.

I am beginning to think it was all a scam. I doubt it will ever happen. Supposedly they did all the tests they needed before they went for the temporary sales tax. Then surprised, they find bad soil so there was a delay that is still continuing.

If everyone remembers, the ex-bono mayor pushed this thing. My guess is the Arkansas Game and Fish knew that the lake couldnt be built. They proposed this lake long time ago and it never was built.Then the ex-bono mayor pushed this thing and the next thing you know it was voted on and passed. Jonesboro Sun editor Chris Wessell hit the nail on the head with his article about the lake. So far, close to $4 million has been spent to move some dirt around for what.....4 years now? Who becomes liable for this? I think most people where lied to and coerced to voting for this so called lake.

Good luck with that. Old mayor of Bono has a cozy new job with city of Jonesboro. Wonder what he has to say about it.....or not about it? If you remember, Kait8 had a story about it almost once a week before the tax passed, and the ex-Bono mayor was on there every time. Now, you hardly hear anything about it. Wonder why?

Maybe if it rains real good the lake will fill up and just add a few fish.

LooserLooserYou have nothing but a looser!!!!!
Its so sad though coz a lot of women r dealing with the same problem. The wife lays in bed and cries and he just lays there like he has no concern or worry for tour well being. Dont kbow how old you both r but syress can bring on a stroke or heart attack or even worse. Do you feel that is what he is trying to do coz one or the other???Do you feel he loves you at all?? Hes sure cold, and beeds to be alone instead of sharing the misery with a wife that can love and show love. Kick the dude to the curve and tell him enough is enough and u r not gonna put up with it any longer!!!

The "Bono Hole" is only filled with tax dollars and will most likely stay that way. Someone should be held accountable for this gross waste of money. Even if they decide it can be completed where will the additional money come from? What a joke. There's way too much of this kind of waste these days. Another prime example is Jonesboro's bus system. Costing tax payers millions of dollars for a few riders.
