Customer upset over necklace that looks like Swastika


ALEXANDER, Ark. (KTHV)- Necklaces resembling Swastikas are being sold at a Pulaski County gas station. A viewer reached out to THV11 on Facebook after he saw the jewelry at a privately owned Phillip 66 gas station on Vimy Ridge Road in Alexander.

When the customer spoke with the clerk at the gas station she told him she wouldn't take the necklaces down. Carmen Bailey, who spoke on behalf of the station's owner, says if a customer doesn't like an item, they don't have to buy it."I don't see anything wrong with it. It's just a necklace."

She said the necklace doesn't represent the store's opinion, they were just trying to help a local business. "I guess they came in a variety of necklaces sold," said Bailey. There's a little bit of all of us around here, if you want to buy it buy it if you don't, don't. It's a free country."

Angel Tree application deadline approaching


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – With Christmas still three months away, most parents aren't yet thinking about what to put under the tree. Some parents may need to turn their attention to the Salvation Army's Angel Tree because October deadlines are quickly approaching.

"Without the Angel Tree, we wouldn't have had a Christmas," said Jennifer Washington, single mom of two.

Two years ago, Washington became a single parent right around Christmas time. Being her kids' hero wasn't easy during the holidays.

"The gifts that they received were something I would have never been able to get for them," she said. "They were happy, which made be happy."

For Salvation Army Marketing Director Kathy Barbeire-Bruton, the angel tree is about more than just handing out free gifts.
