Arkansas Governors Compete For Landmarks

January 7, 2006--Posted at 11:15 p.m. CST

LITTLE ROCK--When it comes to having lakes and schools and other public buildings named after them across the state Arkansas Governor Huckabee and former president Bill Clinton are
neck-and-neck.

From Huckabee Lake in Hope to Clinton Avenue in Little Rock, the state's top political figures are enjoying honors their predecessors never saw: landmarks named after someone while they
are still alive.

With a presidential library, the University of Arkansas' school of public service, a Little Rock street and two public schools to his name, Clinton has a slight advantage over Huckabee.

But Huckabee, who recently dedicated the Mike and Janet Huckabee Lake in his hometown of Hope, has a growing list of landmarks named in his honor.
