What's Cooking, Sept. 17 

The Central Arkansas Library System has opened Bookends Cafe on the first floor of the Cox Creative Center at 120 Commerce, the curving historic building across the parking lot from the Main Library. The cafe offers coffees, pastries and cookies from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and sandwiches, quiche, soups and salads from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Milkshakes and smoothies are also on the menu. Tables are set amid gently used books and gift items for sale. Call 918-3093 for more information.


Klappenbach Bakery, the venerable pastry and bread establishment in Fordyce that had to close after a fire in May, will reopen Sept. 22, Paul Klappenbach says. Except for new wall colors, everything will be the same at the bakery, where a big menu includes cinnamon, rye, pumpernickel, wheat, French and other breads, Danishes, donuts, brownies, pound cakes, and sandwiches, including Reuben, cheese steak and chicken salad. Klappenbach was opened 32 years ago by Norman and Lee Klappenbach. The bakery is open for lunch Tuesday through Saturday at 108 W. Fourth St. Call 870-352-7771 for more information.

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
  • The inadequate legacy of Brown

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
