A flower bed, including red tulips, blooms along the 200 block of Main Street in North Little Rock.

On a warm Tuesday in late February, Frank Webber shows a visitor through the North American headquarters of Orbea, a high-end bicycle manufacturer based in Spain.

The headline -- not just here, but especially "So long, Dogtown" in print -- misses the article's point and seems stuck in the 1960's view of NLR, as expressed by the "Here lies Dogtown" gravestone (which I believe still exists at the NLR History Commission). As Rex Nelson correctly points out, today the locals "use Dogtown as a term of endearment" alongside Argenta.
