Homeowners opposing city's Hinson Rd. plans

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - In just eight days, a mega-pump gas station opens its doors and neighbors once fighting against it are now fighting another battle.

"It's ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous," said neighbor Scott Thrower.

At the intersection of Hinson and Pebble Beach, Thrower lives just three houses away from where the city is planning on installing a brand new traffic light.

"We have never seen that intersection even at peak times be more than two or three cars deep. There's just not a real problem."

Plans also include narrowing the road from four lanes to one in each direction, a center turning lane and bicycle lanes. Another neighbor added, "Three lanes. I don't know that that's the answer but we need to get control of this traffic situation."

Rental help waiting list opens after 6 years

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - It's taken six years, but housing officials have worked their way through the long list of people who need federal housing assistance.

Now, that creates the opportunity for a new list of those in need to sign up.

The phone wouldn't stop ringing at the Little Rock Housing Authority Tuesday, and the stream of people was steady.

There waiting was Pearlie Marbley. She came to apply for rental help for Section 8 housing.

"I saw an article in the paper and decided to come sign up."

But it could take months and even years before she gets the help. That's because Marbley will be put on a waiting list. It opened Tuesday for low income people for the first time in six years.

Huckabee visits Arkansas for 60th birthday

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Former governor and now presidential candidate Mike Huckabee was back in the Natural State on Monday night.

The occasion was to celebrate his 60th birthday and to speak about his campaign efforts.

He says according to a Reuter's poll, he's ranked fourth out of 17. And when it comes to his favorability, he says the Gallup Poll has given him the number one spot.

But the biggest difference between his first run and now is his prominence.

"I think a lot of it is having been out there before and then the visibility that I've enjoyed over the past six and a half years. I don't have to go in a place and introduce myself as to who I am and that's been a plus," said Huckabee.
