Joey's Cute Pet Photo Contest

Joey's Cute Pet Photo Contest

It's that time of the year again where I get to have my very own contest - Joey's Cute Pet Photo Contest for all pets!

My friends at Bedford Camera & Video have generously produced a beautiful coffee mug and mouse pad for the winners to choose from. Now, because I think every pet is cute I randomly select the winners each week.  It is very important when you upload your photo to Today's THV website, include name of pet and where you live in the description. Eleven winners will be selected during the month of July and shown on Today's THV Morning Show.

This contest is for Arkansas residents only. Thanks for playing along! -- Joey

Single parents celebrate success

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. –  More than 20 single parents who were provided financial assistance and retention services from the Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Pulaski County (SPSF) will celebrate their college graduation on Tuesday, June 21 .  The graduates, their families and SPSF supporters will gather at the Little Rock Workforce Center (5401 S. University) at 6 p.m. to recognize these outstanding students. (A map is also attached.)

State Senator Joyce Elliott will be the keynote speaker for the event, and several SPSF graduates will also speak. Their stories of overcoming many challenges to achieve their dreams of a college education are always inspiring; their children’s faces in the audience are a highlight for all who attend because their pride is obvious.

Single Parent Scholarship Fund began in 1991.

PCSSD board dissolved, superintendent ousted

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Arkansas Department of Education Press Release) - "Arkansas Education Commissioner Dr. Tom Kimbrell today exercised his authority under state law to remove the superintendent and dissolve the board of the Pulaski County Special School District.

"The action was taken to immediately move toward restoring confidence in the district's stewardship of public funds, which has been the subject of several critical legislative reports.

"The district needs to set the tone from the top," Dr. Kimbrell said. "There needs to be change in the environment at the district and that starts with school leadership. The district has exhibited a lack of basic financial accountability. To create an atmosphere for children to be successful academically, a change in administration had to be made."

"The department made its decision regarding the district in consultation with Gov. Mike Beebe who fully supports Dr. Kimbrell in this matter.

Arkansas River looks great for Big Bass Bonanza

Arkansas River looks great for Big Bass Bonanza

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Arkansas Big Bass Bonanza, Arkansas’ largest amateur fishing tournament, is on track for this weekend thanks to improved conditions on the Arkansas River, tournament officials announced.
 
"Arkansas has seen a lot of rain this spring," said Montine McNulty, executive director of the Arkansas Hospitality Association and tournament organizer.  "As a result we have received a lot of phone calls asking if the Big Bass Bonanza is still going to be held as scheduled.  The answer is 'yes.'"
 
McNulty said river levels have been steadily declining for several weeks and by Friday the levels should be optimal.
 
Prize money for this year's tournament will be the same as last year, with $100,000 in total cash prizes.
