At the end of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, where it becomes 36th Street, there's a sharp turn and a ravine to the right. It's difficult to see, but over the guardrail it's a dump. There are mattresses and yard furniture and a long tangle of radial tires that kind of resembles costume jewelry for a giant.

A lean chicken thigh, orzo salad and fruit on a bed of kale, and behind this plate lunch, sugar cookies in the shape and paint of a rainbow and a cloud because, honoree Judy Adams said, when she thinks of the Junior League of Little Rock, she thinks of the Maya Angelou line, "Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud."

There was a rainbow in the southern sky over War Memorial Stadium about 7 p.m. April 14. This was at the 12th Ragin' Cajun crawfish boil for CARTI. Folks cooed, "Oh, look, a rainbow!" then dug into their trousers or handbags for evidence-gathering devices.

The initial party for the upstart Party With a Heart got hearts racing inside the Argenta Community Theater. The brainchild of local nonprofit board member Tifany Hamlin was "heart healthy" -- in sentiment and fact. The dance party, fueled from the stage by DJ Kat Wms, kicked off promptly at 8 p.m. and closed at 11 p.m. April 16. When Tina Turner's "Proud Mary" dropped, the dance floor turned into a trembling sylvan of T.T. back-up singers.
