      "Highfill" Airport Being Built With YOUR Tax Dollars

Rural Highfill, Arkansas, has a population of less than 100 persons noted ABC's "20/20" program in their Feb. 20, 1997 broadcast. So why build an international airport there?

One reason pointed to is that both Tyson Chicken and Wal-Mart have facilities nearby. Apparently the idea is to fly planeloads of chicken out of the U.S. and return with planeloads of foreign-made apparel for sale via Wal-Mart.

The airport currently under construction at Highfill will cost $70 million, almost all paid for by U.S. taxpayers' money. But, note defenders of the airport, local industry is paying some of the cost. How much? One percent of it, according to 20/20. That means you and I pay for the other 99 percent.

The Highfill airport will have a long runway; only Chicago's O'Hare Airport has one that's longer. Not suggested explicity in the 20/20 broadcast is that huge military C-130 cargo planes would need such a runway. Will the Highfill airport, not so far from Mena, Arkansas, have C-130s landing and taking off at 2 o'clock in the morning? Is Highfill airport part of an expansion plan for Dope, Inc?

There is already an airport near Highfill, Drake Field, currently operating at only 30 percent capacity. So why build a major airport there? Is the idea to "first build the airport, and then the people will come?"

Arkansas, Arkansas.... Hmmm.... Who do we know that's from there? The name is Bill something or other, isn't it?
