My Town Hero: Ark. woman dedicates retirement to helping dogs get second chance


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- In this month's "My Town Hero" segment, we're introduced to a Little Rock woman making a difference in her community by rescuing dogs so that they can live a better life.

Donna Easley is on a mission to save one dog at a time. She said, "I retired early, so now I get to do what I love."

Her passion? Helping rescue dogs like Pirate featured in the above video find loving homes. But in order to do that, they need to be prepped and ready to go.

"To be adopted from a rescue group, they have to be spayed, neutered and have all their vaccines."

Local shelters though, often times struggle to cover vet costs, so Donna decided to take action.

"I thought if I could help raise money and help rural shelters and rescues, that would help them move more dogs from the shelter and keep them off the euthanasia list," she said.

Homeowners opposing city's Hinson Rd. plans


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - In just eight days, a mega-pump gas station opens its doors and neighbors once fighting against it are now fighting another battle.

"It's ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous," said neighbor Scott Thrower.

At the intersection of Hinson and Pebble Beach, Thrower lives just three houses away from where the city is planning on installing a brand new traffic light.

"We have never seen that intersection even at peak times be more than two or three cars deep. There's just not a real problem."

Plans also include narrowing the road from four lanes to one in each direction, a center turning lane and bicycle lanes. Another neighbor added, "Three lanes. I don't know that that's the answer but we need to get control of this traffic situation."

Rental help waiting list opens after 6 years


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - It's taken six years, but housing officials have worked their way through the long list of people who need federal housing assistance.

Now, that creates the opportunity for a new list of those in need to sign up.

The phone wouldn't stop ringing at the Little Rock Housing Authority Tuesday, and the stream of people was steady.

There waiting was Pearlie Marbley. She came to apply for rental help for Section 8 housing.

"I saw an article in the paper and decided to come sign up."

But it could take months and even years before she gets the help. That's because Marbley will be put on a waiting list. It opened Tuesday for low income people for the first time in six years.
