A catfish cake for Best Restaurant 2016 winners

It sounds awful, but what a beauty: Here's the catfish cake that the Pulaski Tech Culinary Institute created for the 2016 winners of the Arkansas Times' Best Restaurants awards. The catfish, for those of you who have somehow never noticed, is the Arkansas Times' mascot, and it swims into our artwork — just as it does our Arkie soul — all the time. 

The cake, a 4-tiered cake that included hand-painted logos of all the nominated restaurants,  fondant replicas of different foods and dishes prepared by the many restaurants, was served at the Times' winners banquet on Tuesday. Student Jennifer Young (not pictured) created the catfish topper and student J.C. Clogston painted the logos. See the culinary team in the photo below.

  • ACLU asks court to enjoin antiabortion bills

    Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union asked Judge Kristine Baker to grant an injunction against four laws passed this year by the General Assembly that would: * Make abortion after 15 weeks riskier by outlawing what the medical profession considers the safest procedure, dilation and evacuation; * Require doctors to inform local police when an abortion performed on a teenager age 14-16 absent any indication of abuse and that police create a record of the teenager's abortion and be provided the fetal remains; * Require abortion providers to ask women seeking an abortion if they know the sex of the fetus, and, if they do, obtain all of their previous obstetrical records to determine if they have a "history of aborting fetuses" of a certain sex, as the lawyer for the state said today in court. * Require notification of a woman's partner — or abuser — that she intends to have an abortion, ostensibly so they can agree on the disposition of the remains of the fetus.
