kBird, the Thai food truck Richard Glasgow has operated in Hillcrest since 2012, is moving to a brick-and-mortar location. “As soon as [he] can” — certainly within the calendar year — Glasgow will begin serving up his authentic Thai food out of the former home of Palette Catering, 600 N.

Hours, restricted by the location’s zoning, will be 10:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Wee Betty’s Cafe is a definitely a one-of-a-kind in Central Arkansas.

The New York Times reports that some Republicans are trending away from the lock-em-up-and-throw-away-the-key approach to criminal justice embraced by the party's old guard, in part out of a recognition that minority votes matter now more than ever.
