River Trail sinkhole patched on Tuesday

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Workers have made a piece of river trail safe again after patching a 7-foot-deep sinkhole on Tuesday.

THV11's Macy Jenkins found the hole while riding her bike. She actually contacted city officials complaining about the danger of the 7-foot-deep hole.

That area located between the Big Dam Bridge and Murray Park is still roped off today while pavement dries. River Trail officials say the closed section should be open by tomorrow.

Man recognized as 'Local Champion' for firearm safety efforts

NEWTOWN, Connecticut and LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (NSSF) – The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has recognized Joe Huggins of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission in Little Rock, AR as a “Local Champion” for his efforts to promote firearm safety in the state. The recognition comes as NSSF continues its “S.A.F.E. Summer Across America” campaign as part of its ongoing Project ChildSafe program to emphasize the importance of responsible firearm storage – particularly while children are home from school and more likely to be unattended.

“As the hunter education coordinator, it is my job to ensure we promote safety year-round,” Huggins said. “Firearms and other outdoor equipment are used year-round, which makes practicing safe storage important no matter what season it is.”

FLW College Fishing Southern Conference event set for Lake Dardanelle

RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (FLWCF) – FLW College Fishing is headed to Lake Dardanelle July 26 for the final regular-season stop in the Southern Conference. Up to 50 college teams will be competing for a top award of $2,000 and a berth in the Southern Conference Invitational tournament.

“We’ve had quite a bit of rain lately so there will definitely be a shallow and a deep bite,” said 3M ScotchBlue Tape pro Ray Scheide of Dover, Ark., a six-time Forrest Wood Cup qualifier. “The lake is fishing as good or better than it ever has and it is really in good shape.”

Scheide said that college anglers would be able to find fish shallow around milfoil as well as around the lake’s offshore ledges.
