‘THV11 in Your Town’ feature: Arkadelphia

‘THV11 in Your Town’ feature: Arkadelphia

ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (KTHV) – For my second THV 11 in My Town feature, I headed out to Arkadelphia for a day and found quite a few great things to highlight.

ARKADELPHIA ALLIANCE AND DEMOGRAPHICS

First, I stopped by the Arkadelphia Alliance (Arkadelphia Regional Economic Development Alliance and Area Chamber of Commerce if you’re not into that whole brevity thing). There, executive vice president Shelley Loe talked to me about some of the great features in Arkadelphia and what the city had to offer.

If you’re into numbers, the city is home to around 10,714 citizens with 3,736 households as of the 2010 census. (See demographics info: http://on.kthv.com/1hwqnsh) It also offers two accredited 4-year institutions – Henderson State University and Ouachita Baptist University, and the area is home to three school districts—Arkadelphia, Gurdon, and Centerpoint.

Joey helps raise money for LR Animal Village play room

Joey helps raise money for LR Animal Village play room

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – The Little Rock Animal Village is raising money to build its new Cat Room, and THV's Joey the Garden Cat is on its fundraising team.

The new addition, to be called "Joey's Play Room," would give the cats at the Animal Village a place to get exercise and play, which they can't do very well in the cages they are typically confined to. The main goal of the Joey's Play Room is to give the felines a more active life and make them healthier, but it will also do more than that. With the cats playing at free will, potential new owners can see how they interact with others and how much energy they have. This would be a great way to help people determine which cat would best fit in their family and at their home.
