  • Tamalittle offers up pastes (savory stuffed pastries, a central Mexican specialty)

    If you've ever spent time in central Mexico, there's a good chance you fell in love with pastes, a savory stuffed pastry a bit like the British Cornish pasty — or like an empanada, with the difference being that the innards aren't precooked. A new Mexican joint in West Little Rock specializing in pastes just opened last Friday. Tamalittle will be serving up pastes stuffed with mole, chicken tinga, potatoes and chorizo, beans and chorizo, and cochinita (slow-roasted pulled pork). Plus a selection of tamales. Sounds delicious.

  • Living history

    A friend of The Observer who works at the Arkansas Studies Institute just down the street from the Fortress of Employment sent us a link the other day to what we believe to be some of the most moving home video footage ever shot in the state: a soundless, 2-minute, 42-second clip that has been buried in its archives for a while now.

Re: “Revealed: More 'rehabilitation' work camps

Renewal Ranch is having Mike Huckabuck for a speaker for an event on the 17th and Rappert is providing the music - nuff said about that place. Just give them your money.

Re: “It's a great economy for Dollar General: More people too poor to shop at Walmart

But there is a Dollar General in Maumelle - the richest town per capita in Arkansas - and it is always busy. There is another one a mile or so away and another 5 miles away. That one is closest to me in Oak Grove off of MacArthur and I go there often - much closer than WalMart and much less walking to do to get thru it. And all kinds of different people. Smaller parking lot too! All pluses.!

Re: “The line is open

Wait - how can I protect my private info if it can be given away to prove I voted illegally? Can I sue the state because they gave it to the trumpers? Haven't we got a right to privacy when we register to vote? This is so wrong.

Re: “Broadway Bridge ramp set to open Monday

I didn't expect to like the new bridge but I do like it. It soars and with very little fancy about it. It makes me happy to use it!

Re: “Chinese pet treat company to open $5 million facility in Danville

Chicken from here or imported? That is bad - I will only buy pet treats made in America - guess I won't be buying anymore. Have to make my own.

Re: “Tuesday's open line. And some comment

I just found out the answer!
Following the Civil War... The changing landscape of Woodruff County during this time was prominently and literally marked by one former slave named Wade Antney who lived in the Fitzhugh area. After emancipation, Mr. Antney was given the land he had previously worked as a slave, and became a well-respected farmer. To celebrate his emancipation and mark his land, he carved a large black mans head out of an old tree stump on the corner of his property at the crossroads outside of Fitzhugh on the road to Augusta. That location was known for many years as Nigger Head Corner. Wow!

Re: “Tuesday's open line. And some comment

Max or anyone who knows about this --- I drove between Newport and Augusta today and encountered a corner that was called with a big road sign - Negro Head Corner. What??? I googled it but couldn't find the reason it is called this! Driving between Newport and Augusta was kind of nice til I saw that sign. I also saw that Augusta High School has a Confederate flag flying. Not so nice after all.
