Pink is in, according to Little Rock Fashion Week

(October 19, 2011) Little Rock, AR – Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW) is proud to announce its support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month with its official registration for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, which takes in place Little Rock on Saturday, October 22.

 

“Breast cancer is a serious disease that affects all of us. This cancer has robbed the life of friends and family members of those affiliated with the Little Rock Fashion Week and I want to lend my support,” says Brandon D. Campbell, the founder and executive director of LRFW. “Breast cancer should be taken personally by everyone. I ask that we do not wait for this dreadful disorder to claim the life of someone close to us to help with finding solutions. I'm challenging as many people as possible to donate to charities that assist in breast cancer research and prevention and for men and women to get mammograms.”

Scholarships running dry for nontraditional students

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV)--It's the middle of the college semester and some students are still waiting to hear about scholarship money.

Today's Box Office: 'The Thing'...aliens in disguise

Let's be clear about this, The Thing is not a remake of John Carpenter's 1982 film of the same name. In the 1982 film, a group of American Scientists in the Antarctic encounter an alien that take the shape and imitates anyone it comes in contact with while in the 2011 film, a group of Norwegian scientists discover an alien that takes the shape and imitates anyone it comes in contact with. See the difference? It's just like when Vanilla Ice did not steal the riff from Queen's Under Pressure for his hit Ice Ice Baby. It's not the same song.

A Place to Call Home: Tomas

Adoption workers tell us one of the toughest things to watch is a foster child age out of the system, never to find a place to call home.

But that's what could happen to 17-year old Tomas.  Yet, all those who know Tomas insist that whoever takes him home will be the one blessed.

Tomas is a typical teenager, and he loves sports, especially basketball.  So we arranged for him to meet former NBA star Corliss Williamson, who now coaches the UCA basketball team.

"Being a coach and player, I've had the opportunity to see plenty of kids from different backgrounds," says Williamson.  "You hate to see it when they don't have that steady environment, of parents at home."

Yet that is a spot-on description of Tomas' life.  He has no parents, no home, no family to care for or love him.  In fact, he never really knows where he'll be next.

"Foster families," he says.  "Facilities, anything they can find."
