Political ads: Negative vs. positive

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The competition between political candidates in Arkansas is heating up this year and so are their ad campaigns. With the Senate race in the national spotlight, candidates are pulling out all the stops, and that includes bashing their opponent. But do negative ads really make an impact? And how do they hold up against positive campaigns?

Dr. Greg Schufeldt, a political science professor at UALR, studies the influence of negative ads versus positive ads. He says it's all in the eye of the beholder, or rather, the political party you're affiliated with because everyone sees the facts differently.

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."

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.
