LRPD K9 officer dies in line of duty


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – On Tuesday, a Little Rock Police Department K9 officer died in the line of duty.

Holmes to return home for Little Rock Fashion Week

By: Marleachia McJunkins

Little Rock, Ark. – Since 2009 Brandon D. Campbell has been producing Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW), and this year will be unlike any other experience.

July 13-July 18 will be a week filled with memorable fashion moments. On July 18, LRFW will hold its BIG Night exclusive fashion event on the fourth block of Main Street in downtown Little Rock. It will mark the return of Little Rock’s very own TV news personality Keristen Holmes as the show host.

“I couldn’t be more excited to go back home to host LRFW Big Night”, says Holmes. Holmes, a local southern news anchor, is how one would describe her, “I’m just a girl from Pike who made it.”

Holmes is a North Little Rock native. Holmes states, “As a high school student, I was involved in every activity from cheerleading to competitive speech.” At North Little Rock High she was her own renaissance woman in the making.

A string of recent thefts from porches has everyone in her neighborhood on high alert.

"Over the last week we've had several reports of stolen wicker furniture, stolen hanging baskets, things of that nature," said Wells.
