Legislative Report – Updaes on Several Topics

July 21st, 2013 by

This week I’ll present a hodgepodge of information because the legislature is dealing with a hodgepodge of matters and materials. However I am working to keep both myself and you, my constituents, informed and alerted to emerging issues.

First, let me remind you of Arkansas’ upcoming Back-to-School Sales Tax holiday. This means that state and local taxes will not be collected or paid one weekend on the purchase of certain items typically thought of as necessities for the classroom. A complete list of exempt items can be found at www.arkansashouse.org. (Click on the rotating picture.)

July 19th, 2013 by

001Local residents in every city, everywhere, take for granted the many conveniences we have.  We are all used to having cold runing water, air conditioning, cable TV, and of course internet.  Whenever one of these services is interupted, we often panic, even when the interuptions is just for a short time.

Meet “Thai Paul”, a Unique Chef, with Impressive Cooking Skills

July 19th, 2013 by

034More people know “Thai Paul” than recognize the name Chaiporn Phurisri; but once you meet him, you will be impressed with his personal story, as well as his culinary skills.040

036Paul is a native of Thailand, who moved to the U.S. in 1989; his family owns a restaurant in Honolulu, Hawaii; and his dad graduated from West Point Academy.  And there’s much more to learn about him as you get to know him better.042

The “Tiny Thia Place'”s menu is equally impressive; offering steak and lobster, filet mignon, scallops, and varying presentations of crab legs.

For a wide range of authentic home-made dishes, made from scratch, try Thai Paul’s meals at the Tine Thai Place, located in the old Family Seafood, on HWY 278 West , or call 723-9258.
