Cozy up to Andres breakfast

posted: 07/24/2014 2:29 a.m. Discuss

Before a trip to Andres Coffee Shop, I went online to see its menu. The “About us” section says that Andres is owned and operated by Edgar Gonzales and his family who live in the Little Rock area. The shop was created as a way to celebrate the life of Edgar’s grandfather, Andres, who grew up in Honduras and was a coffee farmer, and that sparked Andres’ love for the beverage.

Pop composer Berns is finally getting his due

posted: 07/24/2014 2:24 a.m. Discuss

Even in his mid-1960s heyday, Bert Berns was barely known beyond the obsessives who studied songwriters' and producers' credits on 45 rpm records and LP album jackets. And then, after his death in 1967 at the age of 38, something truly odd happened: Though the songs he wrote and produced, like "Twist and Shout" and "Hang On Sloopy," proved to have durability, growing in stature and popularity as the years passed, Berns' reputation receded even further into obscurity.

On Christianity

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: My doctor just called to say I need to go back to the radiologist for another X-ray, because something suspicious showed up on the first one. But I can't face going back. I'm so frightened that I might have breast cancer. I know that's stupid, but I can't help it. Why is God doing this to me?
