Transportation crews plan more closures in west Little Rock


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas transportation officials will close ramps and lanes overnight near the state's busiest intersection next week.

The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department on Thursday announced the closures at the Big Rock interchange in west Little Rock.

The Hermitage Road on-ramp to Interstate 430 will be closed Monday and Tuesday nights for striping and sign work. Northbound and southbound lanes on the interstate will be reduced from Monday until Friday.

On Interstate 630, lanes in each direction will be reduced during the same period for pavement repair and drainage improvements. An off-ramp to Baptist Health will be completely closed until the work is complete.

LRFW impacts local community

LRFW impacts local community

By Tabitha Cooke

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW) is preparing for another great year and people in the community have the event marked in their calendars.

Every year, LRFW exceeds the expectations of an enjoyable and one-of-a-kind experience that merges designers, models and artists together to connect and establish their brands.

“LRFW is a great platform to allow those seeking careers in the modeling and fashion industry a leg to stand on in hopes of creating or expanding their brand,” said fashion designer, Nichole McGehee, who has been participating in LRFW since 2009. “As for me, LRFW has benefited me in helping to put my brand in the “spotlight” of the media. I feel that being a part of LRFW played a great part of my line becoming known on both a local and national level.”

Painting to help pets find forever homes


WEST LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Some pet-friendly humans put their paws to paint brushes on Sunday, all for a purpose.

It's a class at "Painting with a Twist" located in West Little Rock. Participants help the group "Friends of the Animal Village" by painting up a canvas as a possible Father's Day gift. In turn, a portion of the fees made during the Father's Day classes go towards Little Rock's animal adoption programs.

"We just like to get people out and of course the painting with a purpose, through Painting with a Twist, a little portion, well a nice portion actually, of everyone's painting fees does go to the non-profit," said Erin Johnson with the Friends of the Animal Village.

If you missed Sunday's event, don't worry, they have another one planned for August at a studio in the Heights.
