Officials: Check written for CeeLo's Riverfest performance cancelled

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Riverfest organizers are reportedly refusing to pay CeeLo Green part of his payment for his performance over the weekend.

According to Chairman Cheddy Wigginton, Green arrived 35 minutes late and didn't fill his contracted time. He said the contract allotted Green 75 to 90 minutes, while his performance lasted only half of that.

Organizers said Green had received an up-front payment, believed to be about half of the contracted sum of more than $100,000.

Green's manager, Larry Mestel with Primary Wave Management, told THV11 Tuesday that they were given a check after his performance for the remaining balance. Officials said Wednesday afternoon, however, that the check has since been cancelled.

My Town Hero: Greenbrier man starts prison ministry

My Town Hero: Greenbrier man starts prison ministry

GREENBRIER, Ark. (KTHV) - This week's My Town Hero is striving to make his community better, and hoping to save lives along the way. Eddie Kelso, of Greenbrier, said he simply saw a need and decided to do something about it.

"3.2 percent of our adult population is in jail, probation, or incarcerated. That's one out of every 31 adults in America doing some time,” said Kelso, a pastor for 17 years who has witnessed the grim reality of life behind bars. "I'm seeing them destroying their lives, and it's such a waste."

Kelso turned his vision of starting a prison ministry into a reality. Four years ago he became a Certified Religious Assistant in Arkansas prisons. He and his wife Joy, then created "Know the Truth about Prison Ministry" in effort to reach inmates and their families. Today he continues to travel from one prison to the next, volunteering his time to try and prevent inmates from becoming repeat offenders.
