Apple fanatics camp out for the new iPhone 6

Apple fanatics camp out for the new iPhone 6

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.(KTHV) -The iPhone 6 won't officially show up in stores until Friday, but some are more eager than others to get it.

It's become a tradition of sorts for Stephen Warren of Clarksville. Before every new iPhone launch, he sets up camp in front of the Apple Store. Warren says this year is no different.

"This year of course they come out with 2 new ones and I'll more than likely get both of them again."

THV11 first met Warren last year when Apple released the iPhone 5s and 5c. This time he's not alone, first time camper Ashleigh Branch says she's on the same mission.

"I figure I'll just experience this, experience this one time only."

To pass the time Branch, who is a UALR student, tends to her studies.

"I took two chemistry quizzes online while I was sitting here just to kill time, just do some homework."

And Warren, uses his iPhone to Facetime with his wife and kids who live in Clarksville.

AGFC approves grant of fine money to counties

AGFC approves grant of fine money to counties

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (September 18, 2014) – When the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission collects fines from game law convictions, the money goes back to the county where it was collected. During Thursday's monthly Commission meeting, the agency approved a grant of more than $679,100 to the Arkansas Department of Education as a result of fines collected during the 2014 fiscal year.

The money is used to fund educational programs focused on fish, wildlife and conservation in the counties where the offenses occurred. The highest amount of fine money went to Drew County with just over $28,000. The next highest amount went to Arkansas County with more than $25,900 in fines.

Wal-Mart to increase holiday hiring by 10 percent

Wal-Mart to increase holiday hiring by 10 percent


NEW YORK (AP) - Wal-Mart Stores Inc. says it plans to hire 60,000 temporary holiday workers for the crucial holiday season, an increase of 10 percent from last year.

The world's largest retailer also says current workers who want more hours during the holidays will get priority for them. The retailer, based in Bentonville, Ark., has been criticized by labor groups for low pay and intentionally keeping employees' hours low.

The news follows similar announcements from UPS, FedEx and Kohl's, which are also making more temporary hires this year.

A retailer's hiring plans can indicate its expectations for the holiday shopping season, which accounts for 20 percent of the retail industry's annual sales, according to the National Retail Federation.

Most Arkansas colleges, universities enroll slightly lower numbers

Most Arkansas colleges, universities enroll slightly lower numbers

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (ADHE) – The number of students enrolled in higher education on the 11th day of classes in Arkansas is down one percent overall as compared to last fall, said officials with the Arkansas Department of Higher Education (ADHE) Thursday, with a total of 168,816 at both public and private schools.

“Final enrollment numbers won’t be available until after the semester ends,” said Shane Broadway, director of ADHE, “but we don’t expect big changes based on what we’ve been seeing the last couple years.

“Numbers are trending to what they were before the recession when many Arkansans lost their jobs,” Broadway continued, “and began looking for more opportunities by way of a higher education.”

The four-year universities saw an average increase in enrollment of 0.3 percent, while the two-year colleges saw a decrease in enrollment of 4.7 percent. Total public institution enrollment decreased by 1.5 percent.
