Original Fried Pie Shop

ORIGINAL FRIED PIE SHOP There's nothing like a fried pie, filled with delicious fruit or spiced meat, with a hot, flakey brown crust. And there is nothing like that at this Jacksonville eatery, a chain that assumes folks want an all-pie meal, a pepperoni fried pie followed by a cherry fried pie, for instance. With instant tea on the side. Maybe it wasn't instant, but it sure tasted that way. Perhaps, under different circumstances, you could pull off a pie-pie meal, but these mitt-sized mistakes are a) room temperature, b) made with a pale greasy dough and c) filled with, in our case, what tasted like cool canned peaches. We tried the egg and cheese fried pie too — all cheap cheese, running all over the plate, yellow mellow custard. How could anyone think they could pass this stuff in a place like Arkansas, where we know a good fried pie when we see one? In a word: Ugh. 1321 T.P. White Drive. 501-985-0508. BLD.

  • Industrial hemp pilot program coming soon to Arkansas

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state. AHA Vice President Jeremy Fisher said the first licenses to grow experimental plots of hemp in the state should be issued by the Arkansas State Plant Board next spring.
  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
