Cyclist recovering after deer collision

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV)- One month after colliding with a deer during the Big Dam Bridge 100, cyclist Peggy Muncy is recovering from her injuries.

"I never saw a deer. I have no memory of a deer whatsoever," Muncy recalled. "I don't think I hit the deer I think the deer hit me but the moral of the story is I believe you just have to wear a helmet."

Muncy's fellow riders and witnesses described what they saw about seven miles into the ride in between the Big Dam Bridge and Two Rivers Park. "From the right side brush and very tall grass a doe, pretty large probably 140-150 pounds, just shot out of the grass like a cannon," said Barry Hyde. "It ran into the side of Peggy's front wheel."

Neighbors angry about proposed West Little Rock apartments

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Developers have been eyeing vacant land on Kanis Road, and with three apartment complexes in the works, nearby residents and homeowners are unhappy.

"It's my understanding that we've got one under development here already, and then one more has been proposed further west down Kanis Road," said Jesse Munn with the Woodland's Edge Property Owner's Association.

He and fellow property owners are concerned about the effects new residential complexes could have on the area. Most importantly, more congestion, lower property values and a good deal of traffic.

Election issue: Raise the minimum wage?

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - In the November election, voters will decide whether to raise Arkansas' minimum wage from its current rate of $6.25/hour up to $8.50/hour by 2017. But while the measure appears widely popular in pre-election polls some experts say it will end up hurting the state's economy.

"We're optimistic at this point that, in two weeks as people go out to vote, they'll support this increase to give hard-working Arkansans a raise," said Stephen Copley, the man behind the effort to raise Arkansas' minimum wage. "As we've watched it and probably about three times tried to increase it, it just hasn't happened but people continue to fall further and further behind on the necessities of life so we felt like this was the time to go ahead and see if we couldn't get an increase."
