Groups rally in support of Arkansas campaign finance measure

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A coalition of groups is rallying support for a measure vying for a spot on the Arkansas ballot next year that would require more disclosure from outside political groups participating in campaigns.

The groups marched from MacArthur Park to the state Capitol on Tuesday in support of the proposed initiated act by Regnat Populus that would require more reporting on spending by outside groups in political campaigns. Regnat Populus has submitted the measure to the attorney general's office, which must certify the proposal before petitions can be circulated to try and get it on the ballot.

The measure also includes a non-binding resolution calling for a federal constitutional amendment aimed at overturning a 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that cleared the way for unlimited political spending by corporations and unions.

30-ton piece of construction equipment falls in Arkansas river

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A massive piece of equipment that's 100-feet long and weighs 30 tons is now at the bottom of the Arkansas River thanks to high waters.

Construction crews working on the Broadway Bridge expansion project say high water levels led the equipment to fall into the river Friday.

No one THV11 talked to expected the incident to have any effect on the timeline for the project. It will, however, affect the construction company in charge of the expansion because not only will they need to replace the equipment, they'll need to go into the water and get all 30 tons of it out of the river.

About 45 feet below the murky surface of the river sits a drill shaft template, a huge piece of construction equipment jarred free in last week's high water.

Arkansas judge reprimanded after divorce case

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas district court judge has been reprimanded after he said he forgot about a divorce case that took him 20 months to rule on.

The Arkansas Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission on Friday said Judge Edwin Keaton had agreed to a series of corrective actions. Keaton has agreed to conduct a quarterly docket review and take other steps to avoid delayed rulings.

The commission says the judicial district has stopped assigning him domestic relations cases.

The complaint was filed in 2013 by a man whose divorce was assigned to Keaton in 2011. Keaton says he misplaced the man's file after taking it home.

The commission says Keaton was open and candid about the issue and has been a beneficial contributor to the district.
