Arkansas sees revenue rise in October


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas finance officials say the state's revenue rose in October and is above year-to-date expectations.

The Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration said Tuesday that net available revenue in October totaled $402.8 million. That's $30.0 million more than last year and $18.2 million above the state's forecast.

The report said sales tax collections accounted for $7.7 million of the gain for the month and corporate Income tax collections were $2.3 million above forecast.

The department said year-to-date revenue for the first four months of the fiscal year totals $1,725.0 million - $31.3 million above year ago levels.

Election computer system shuts down over the weekend


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Over the weekend, the election computer system shut down statewide for about an hour.

It happened around 11 Saturday morning, and made the long lines even longer. Fortunately, voters did stick around.

According to election commissioner Bryan Poe, it's happened several times before. In 2006, the computers shut down on Election day at 5 p.m.

"In Pulaski County we have a backup system, it just slowed everything down, for other counties without a backup system it just brought everything to a screeching hault," said Poe.

Even with a few computer glitches, this is still the highest number on record for early voting in a mid-term election in Arkansas. The voting has been just as busy on Tuesday.


Baptist Health offers new technology to diagnose lung cancer


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (November 4, 2014) – Each year more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers combined, and according to the American Cancer Society, Arkansas will have an estimated 2,660 new cases of lung cancer diagnosed in 2014 resulting in 2,200 deaths.

With November being national Lung Cancer Awareness Month, Baptist Health wants Arkansans to understand that the earlier lung cancer is diagnosis the better the odds are for surviving. Early stage lung cancer that is detected, diagnosed and immediately treated has survival rates up to 88 percent compared to the current 15 percent for late stage lung cancer patients.

Campaign 2014: Arkansans opted to early vote


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Polls are open across the state, and the Secretary of State office reports that more than 360,000 Arkansans have already cast their ballots.

On Tuesday, long lines could be seen at many voting sites.

Pulaski County Director of Elections, Bryan Poe, says the numbers this year have surpassed those of past mid-term elections. He is just hoping the rain doesn't keep voters from showing up on Tuesday.

"You know I think people understand the importance of voting so I would imagine that most people won't be deterred by a few drops of rain or a little bit of coldness," said Poe.

More than 53,000 people voted early in Pulaski County.

Polls open for voters in Arkansas general election


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Polls are now open for Arkansas voters to cast ballots on Election Day.

State election officials have predicted a higher turnout in this election than in the most recent midterm election in 2010. The Arkansas Secretary of State's Office estimated that 51 percent of the state's nearly 1.7 million registered voters will cast ballots in the general election.

This year's ballot features a heated U.S. Senate contest between Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor and Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton, along with the governor's race with Democrat Mike Ross and Republican Asa Hutchinson seeking the office.

Polls are open from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Many voters have already cast their ballots, though. Election officials say more than 360,000 people cast ballots early in the two weeks before Tuesday's election.
