Tropical Smoothie opening in River Market 

Tropical Smoothie is opening a franchise in the River Market's Ottenheimer Hall, hopefully by the end of April, area developer for Arkansas and Oklahoma Chris Kramolis said. Brad Newcomb and Josh Inmon are the franchisees who'll run the space. The Tropical Smoothie staples will be offered, but it'll be more of an express menu, Kramolis said. The space, located in the southwest corner next to soon-to-open Shugg's BBQ, also offers a window for customers who want to order from the street.

Kramolis said the initial plan is for the outlet to be open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. He added that he expects to do a lot of catering in the downtown area out of the River Market.

  • 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.
