Health fair linking community to health services

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV ) -- African Americans have the highest death rate of any racial and ethnic group in the United States for most cancers. And while that statistic is alarming it is mirrored by other reports for many other diseases.

That's why the health and faith community are joining other groups in the state for a special health event aimed at addressing such disparities.

The event will be today (May 14) from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at First Baptist Church, located at 811 Scipio A. Jones in North Little Rock.

Linking the Community to Health Services, now in its third year, is sponsored in part by the Arkansas Department of Health, Arkansas Cancer Coalition, Arkansas Community Foundation and American Cancer Society. The event will feature health screenings, expert advice and community outreach.

NLR residents upset about 25 crimes occurring in last 2 weeks

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Some North Little Rock residents living along Pike Avenue would like to see more patrols in their neighborhood and others are considering moving. They say their biggest concerns are not for themselves, but for their kids.

Brandi Pilcher has seen a lot of crime in broad daylight.

"I've seen fights were people have gotten brutally beaten," says Pilcher.

Just last week, she says someone tried to break in her house. She feels the same as Tina Marbley who lives one block away from her.

"They said I have to put in a request to move. I don't feel safe," says Marbley. "Everybody's kids were out here every time they were shot."

Marbley lives in the same apartment complex where a North Little Rock police officer shot a man Sunday. The man is a suspect in a beating and allegedly was going after an officer, who initially thought the man's cell phone was a gun.
