A Recap of LRFW 7

By: Tabitha Cooke

LITTLE ROCK, Ark - Not even a nearly record-breaking hot day could prevent the excitement around the show and entertainment behind the outdoor event on the 4th block of Main Street in downtown Little Rock at the Big Night.

Little Rock’s very own native and TV news personality, Keristen Holmes, returned home to host Big Night, presenting returning designers and new designers as they showcased their clothing lines while models strutted in the designer’s collection on the runway at the seventh annual Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW).

Changes coming to LRSD employee contracts


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Hundreds of teachers met at the Arkansas Education Association on Tuesday night to discuss changes to an employment contract.

Since the state takeover of the Little Rock School District back in January, new negotiations must be made. "No matter what survives, nothing is going to be the way it was and that's okay," said Cathy Koehler, president of the Little Rock Education Association.

In just 13 weeks, the 92-page document is set to expire. Nearly 400 teachers across the district showed up ready to discuss everything from salary to benefits.

"A lot of people vented what they had to say and there might have been some moments I vented," Koehler said.

Appeals court formally upholds Arkansas gay marriage ruling


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A federal appeals court has upheld a ruling striking down Arkansas' gay marriage ban, finding that the U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage didn't render the state case moot.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday upheld U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker's decision last year to strike down a 2004 constitutional amendment and earlier state law defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

Arkansas had suggested Baker's decision was moot after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down gay marriage bans nationwide in June, and asked the appeals panel to vacate her decision. The appeals court rejected the motion to vacate.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson and Attorney General Leslie Rutledge in June said county clerks must issue licenses to same-sex couples following the high court's ruling.

Lavish summer weddings in Arkansas

Sheena Smith and Nicholas Colclough tied the knot this summer at the Little Rock Marriott in style.  The wedding, which donned a flower wall by Eminent Planning and Central Arkansas Entertainment created from 4000 flowers from Cabbage Rose Florist and a carpet of rose petals down the aisle, looked like something straight out of a fairytale.  And the couple's story is just as elaborate and beautiful as their wedding.
