Packet House progress 

I mentioned earlier that sellers might have a buyer on the line for the Packet House, the historic vacant home on Carpetbagger Hill on Cantrell Road.

An application on file at the Little Rock planning office says the Planning Commission June 2 will consider an application to use the property, zoned for offices, for a "classic grill style restaurant" with a focus on "local products and ingredients." The house was used for a restaurant many years ago and little opposition is expected to the idea, filed by Maurie Mitchell of Rector Phillips Morse real estate. A cover letter doesn't give a proposed name for the restaurant, but says Wes Ellis would be the future executive chef and manager.

The restaurant would be on the ground floor of the 12,000-square-foot structure. The second floor would be used for catering. The third floor would be for offices and storage.

    An interesting controversy is brewing in Conway Public Schools, periodically a scene of discord as more liberal constituents object to the heavy dose of religion that powerful local churches have tried to inject into the schools, particularly in sex education short on science and long on abstinence.
