NLR High School begins licensing logos


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark.(KTHV) - Logos are one of the most prized symbols of a high school brand. Now, North Little Rock High School wants more control of their Charging Wildcat logo.

Collegiate and professional sports teams have been licensing their brand for years, but now Brian Brown, director of purchasing for the district, says they want to do the same.

"We wanted to protect our brand. Make sure only official marks are used. We wanted to police the commerce of items that have our protected brands on there."

Brown says they wanted to create a revenue stream that would benefit students and teachers.

The licensing will cost $200 for vendors and a 15 percent royalty on each item sold.

But the district's decision is not sitting well with many vendors like Jason Johns who sells North Little Rock merchandise.

Public input brings changes to NLR parks


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Changes are coming to North Little Rock's Burns Park, and local leaders want the public's input.

The North Little Rock Parks and Recreation Commission met on Monday night to hear from residents about what they want from the parks department.

Crestview Park even stemmed from an idea that came from a North Little Rock Parks and Recreation Commission meeting, so officials are hopeful.

The most recent idea is a completely handicap accessible playground.

"Most of our parks are handicap accessible by ADA standards in that they have a wood fabric carpet, but this is a special. This one is totally 100 percent accessible…" said Bob Rhoads, director of NLR Parks and Recreation.
