Re: “UPDATE II: former NW Ark. developer named in bank fraud charges

That's some crack shot reporting, Arkansas Times. If you would take a look at the article you cite for the proposition that "he was taken into custody in Fayetteville this week," you will notice that it was published in 2010.

Re: “Cafe Prego still delivers

I have not, and it is possible that the new owners have upped the ante since I last ate there. However, they would have had to have upped it considerably to be on par even with Fazoli's. Everything I had on my last visit -- and I mean EVERYTHING -- was the worst thing I have ever eaten. From the foccacia to the tortellini to the sauce. It was all bad. The creme brule was also bad. The caramelized sugar was sitting on top of the custard before I walked in the door and had softened. Our service was also bad. We waited 15 minutes before we had drinks. I know I sound like a grumpy old man, but it was just that bad.

If you want not upscale Italian that is good, try Rocky's in Sherwood.

Re: “Cafe Prego still delivers

I absolutely cannot believe you gave this restaurant a good review. Prego's food is terrible all around. The tortellini tastes just like the premade stuff Sam's sells. I wouldn't feed it to a stray dog. I do not often comment on Arkansas Times material, but I could not resist the urge to call out this review as FALSE.

Re: “Beebe: No help on trial court assistants

Isn't all that mess up in Phillips County due in part to a lack of trial assistants/case coordinators?

Re: “Getting in sync with recycling

Check the Hillcrest Residents Association calendar: http://www.hillcrestresidents.org/calendar. The HRA website also has a map detailing which parts of Hillcrest are in which zone: https://docs.google.com/a/hillcrestresiden…

Re: “Little Rock's budget plan — tax and spend

I understand people wanting a raise, but, given the current unemployment crisis, wouldn't it be better to forgo raises in favor of filling some of the many vacant city jobs?

Re: “Keet: His Checkers speech? UPDATE

It would be nice if this paper focused on something other than peripheral issues that do not really have any direct bearing on the lives of Arkansans. Criticism of this sort makes it appear that the author lacks ammunition when it comes to legitimate issues. I wonder if the paper has so closely examined arguments of individuals who question President Obama's citizenship?
