AHTD reveals plan to widen I-30

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- More than a year of debate over the I-30 expansion project continued on Tuesday in front of a packed house at the Clinton Library.

The discussion was geared towards the Little Rock City board of directors as they got their first inside look at the highway department's options.

Nearly 300 people piled into the Clinton Library. Many to hear the discussion, others to offer their continued opposition to a plan that appears it will continue to move forward.

If one word could sum up Tuesday night's meeting, it would be 'process.'

"We still know we have a way's to go to work through this process."

The highway department continued their process of mulling over options, while the public continued its process of offering resistance.

Jefferson Co. Sheriff's Office issues reminder to parents on child identification

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ark. - (Oct. 29, 2015 – With recent flash news alerts regarding missing children, teens, and others alike throughout the state, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office decided to issue a reminder to all parents regarding the indentification of their children. 

Major Lafayette Woods, Jr. issued the following statement on Thursday:

When a child or someone you know is reported missing, emotions become raw, which can hinder the ability of parents or love ones to make rational decisions. Yet, their actions and the actions of law enforcement in the first 48 hours are critical to the safe recovery of a missing. Knowing what you can do, what others can do, and where to go for help will not only expedite the search and recovery of your child or love one, it also will help to ease the emotional and financial burden of the search.

Arkansas Supreme Court says state immune from lawsuit

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Supreme Court has granted an appeal from the state Department of Education, saying it can't be sued by former school board members who say the state shouldn't have taken over the Little Rock School District.

The state's high court issued an opinion Thursday granting an appeal of a lower court's decision. A circuit court judge denied the state's request to dismiss the lawsuit in March, ruling that the state could be sued for its decision to take over the Little Rock district and dissolve its school board.

The takeover vote came after six Little Rock schools were determined to be in academic distress.

Neighbor disrupts burglary by calling LRPD before officer-involved shooting

*Note: This story was produced before the third suspect was apprehended by police.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Neighbors would typically call their stretch of Applegate Court a quiet area, but on Wednesday afternoon it became an active crime scene.

"When I saw the yellow tape I thought maybe someone had been killed. I thought, my God, what is going on?," said Aretha Barnes.

To Barnes' surprise, it was her home in the center of the investigation.

Barnes says thankfully her neighbor saw it all go down and called police as quickly as possible. "Actually pulled up to one of the other neighbor's homes. One got out, rung the doorbell, knocked on the door and then signaled for the others to come."

Veteran memorial bike stolen from Little Rock man's home

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- A man is left devastated after his motorcycle was stolen from his garage in Little Rock.

Zachary Warren, who is also an investigator with the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office, said his bike isn't valued at much, but its the sentimental value that has him desperate to get it back.

“It’s something that would have never gone away. It’s something that would have been in our family for as long as it could have," said Zachary Warren.

To some, it may be just a motorcycle, but to Zachary Warren it holds meaning that goes beyond words. Warren's father was serving overseas in 2007 when his Black Hawk helicopter was shot down, killing him and two others.

His motorcycle became a canvas, a tribute to the lives lost.

“Just bring it back. Leave it somewhere public. It was something very dear to my family, and we’d just like to have it back,” said Warren.
