posted: 03/24/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

Anyone who predicted Villanova would be out and the ACC would only have North Carolina left would have been regarded as nuttier than a Louisiana pecan tree.

DEAR ABBY: Friend with benefits turns out to be a disappointment

posted: 03/23/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I have known this guy "Noah" for six years. We're mostly just friends with benefits, but I've always had deeper feelings for him. I always wanted to see where things could go between us, so I mentioned it to him. He told me that if he didn't already have a girlfriend, he would have dated me. So when they broke up, I waited patiently.

OPINION: REX NELSON: Hall of famers

posted: 03/22/2017 4:30 a.m. Discuss

The first three restaurants inducted into the Arkansas Food Hall of Fame--Lassis Inn at Little Rock, Jones Bar-B-Q Diner at Marianna, and Rhoda's Famous Hot Tamales at Lake Village--say a lot about the culture of a rural state where tradition matters. I can't imagine a better trio for the inaugural induction class. I have no doubt that this year's other nine finalists will be inducted in the years ahead. They also are representative of who we are as Arkansans.

Dear Unseen Correspondent: Yours of the 16th has been received and recorded in the Book of Life, or in your case the Book of Death, though it’s not easy to decide in which category your comments fall. Why not both? For you reside in that twilight land somewhere between conception and death while your innocent souls are purged and prepared for who knows what.

Uncorked: Sip like Spaniards: Pick verdejo, rioja

posted: 03/22/2017 1:50 a.m. Discuss

When I travel, my priority is exploring and learning the local wine regions. My family has been traveling to Marbella, Spain, for several years. As is sometimes the case with a traveling writer, I am typing this column while sitting on the beach enjoying the soft rolling waves of the Mediterranean Sea and, of course, a glistening glass of local wine is sitting on my side table. Which brings me back to exploring local wines.

DEAR ABBY: Mom must bear son-in-law for the sake of her daughter

posted: 03/22/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I'm not proud to write this, but I don't like my son-in-law. I think the feeling is mutual. He's arrogant and thinks he knows everything.

Hog Calls: Beard was the only guy for the shot

posted: 03/22/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

It didn't go in, but kudos to Anton Beard for taking the shot.
