Re: “RiverFest reborn: expect country music and kiddie rides

Back is a relative term. The group that bought the name is all new and has never staged a festival in Arkansas. The name, sort of, is the only thing that stays the same.

Re: “Modern look, classic dishes at The Avenue

The duck confit might have been as good or even better than what you had in Paris. It also cost about twice as much. I'm in Paris now and just had duck confit at our favorite cafe just a 10-minute walk from the Eiffel Tower. It was 12 Euros. And it was a larger piece than what's pictured here. Remember, this is freakin' Paris, not Hot Springs. Been to the Avenue once -- and enjoyed the food. But thought the prices were nuts, especially for mid-sized town Arkansas. $26 duck? $28 halibut? Apparently that hasn't changed.

Re: “Andrew Collins announces for House seat vacated by Clarke Tucker

And he has been chair of the board at Our House, which is one of the shining stars in helping disadvantaged people create better lives. I've known Andrew for years and respect, admire and like him immensely. He and Clarke Tucker are in lockstep on the issues, best I can tell, so please get behind him.

Re: “Pedestrian killed at 6th and Broadway

As a downtown resident and downtown worker I am an almost-daily pedestrian. While this news is tragic, I must say I'm glad to hear it was a circumstantial pedestrian fatality and not someone being mowed down in a crosswalk, which is a fate I work hard to avoid, taking nothing for granted as I cross downtown streets.

Re: “Spare time for the Dust Bowl

We've been once and loved it -- the bowling, the food, the drinks, the atmosphere. As downtown liver/workers, we also are happy Dust Bowl is extending the party south. Once it was just President Clinton Avenue. Then Dugan's and others livened up Third Street. Now we have Dust Bowl on Capitol, with the associated Fassler Hall -- a German-style beer hall -- opening in the next month or so right next door.

Re: “Today's trend: The cashless society

I rarely have cash but did get some for Christmas and just pulled out a $20 bill and read, "This note is legal tender for all debits, public and private." So how can a business say it doesn't take cash. Would appear by this wording that it's obligated to take it. Anybody?
