Invasive pests threaten soybean crops in Arkansas


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - They multiply by the hundreds, and they're sweeping the southeast.

Originally from Asia, Kudzu bugs appeared in Georgia in 2009. From there, they quickly spread.

As part of U.T. Ag Extension, Neil Denton knows first-hand the big havoc these little bugs can wreak, not just on Kudzu, but on crops, and eventually on your home.

"They were literally on everything," said Denton.

For nearly two years, these pests, much like stink bugs, have been swarming the southeast. Now they've invaded Arkansas. Researchers spotted them first in Crittenden County this fall. Their prey? Soybeans.

Just as the problem is arising, one of the biggest agricultural conferences in the state happens to be taking place in North Little Rock, where a conglomeration of Agricultural professors and researchers have gathered to discusses such issues.

Proposed legislation would put restrictions on liquor stores


LITTLE ROCK, Ark.(KTHV)- A proposed piece of legislation would make it clear that liquor stores are no place for anyone under the age of 21. At Markham Liquor in Little Rock, owner Moda Sanjay says he sales more than just alcohol.

"People come into my store for cigarettes, sodas things like that. If I don't give them cigarettes, they don't give me any of their business." The store is located across from UAMS and next to a laundry mat.

Sanjay said students and those waiting on laundry frequently purchase sodas and snacks from his store, and many of them are under the age of 21.

Representative Mary Broadaway says House Bill 1024 would change that.

"Basically, makes it a class A misdemeanor for someone under 21 to enter liquor stores without being accompanied by a guardian or a parent."
