Re: “Do you know what it means?

"... to miss New Orleans?"

Oh you have no idea. I lived in the French Quarter for a while, and the corner stores with the delis in the back are certainly a good place to get a good ole po'boy. Verti Mart was a favorite of mine.

Max, it looks like you like your po'boy fully dressed. I personally like my naked...

Re: “Farm2Work: Bringing the farmers market to where you are

I use Farm2Work at UAMS - you just pick out your healthy choices at your desk (while you aren't tempted by the endcaps at the grocery) and it just shows up at your office! Diane and the others are SO nice. Since I'm on a special dietary program, they know what I might want, and give me a heads up. It's a GREAT service! Thank you!

Re: “A taxing evening

Upkeep of sidewalks are not the property owners' responsibility, but the city's. They use your property as a right of way to install a sidewalk, and they maintain it (if there is enough money and manpower to do it). You as a property owner, however, have the responsiblity of keeping up the grass/weeds or whatever is located from the street to the sidewalk.

As far as installing and updating the sidewalks in places that don't have sidewalks, the city has the right to do that. At this time, there isn't enough money to put in sidewalks in all the places that need them. There also isn't a master plan in place for what goes first where, I don't believe.

In new areas, it is a city ordinance (?) that developers provide sidewalks and bike lanes (marked lanes on the side of the street). It would be the city's responsiblity to MAINTAIN these. This is not enforced all the time, unfortunately.

For "Complete Streets" guide, refer to http://www.completestreets.org/changing-po… . There are people in the community pushing for this to be adopted by the City of LR, MetroPlan, the State Highway Department, and the County.

Re: “Browning's bites the dust

I was Browning’s very last customer (to leave) on their very last night. My mom and dad went on dates there in the 40’s. It was the first place I was taken, when I was only 3 weeks old.

My best friend and I went every week without parents when we were in middle school and junior high to learn how to be “adults”. We learned so much: how to order, how to tip, manners.

And I’ve been going ever since. There’s no telling how many times I’ve been there in 40 years. That’s where everyone knew my name. Literally. It was like coming home every time I walked in the door.

I took pictures of all the staff that was there and got so many hugs that night. It was a sad time.
