11 Listens: NLR leaf vacuum service running behind

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Many of you have been asking about North Little Rock's leaf vacuum service, and when it will be up and running.

The answer THV11 got from officials was that it depends. City officials said the service began picking up leaves last month but has been delayed because of weather.

"We're doing the best we can to get this wonderful, free service by the way to our citizens and ask for their patience as we work the issue of delays and volume and weather," said Mayor Joe Smith.

The service typically runs every two to six weeks through five different zones. To see where it is or where it's going, be sure to check the North Little Rock city website or their Facebook page.

Ark. fire departments respond to holiday fire

SCOTT, Ark. (KTHV) - The North Little Rock Fire Department responded to a field fire Thursday afternoon that left 10 acres in ashes.

At around 1:52 p.m., the NLR Fire Department received a call regarding a grass fire that was burning along Colonel Maynard Road and behind homes of the Ashley Downs gated community. The NLR FD called the Scott Fire Department for assistance and responded.

According to officials, residents were burning old magazines when a sudden gust of wind picked up, causing burning pages to fly into the field and quickly set it ablaze. Approximately 10 acres were burned before firefighters were finally able to contain the fire about an hour later.

No damages or injuries were reported.

Pulaski Technical College Foundation participating in #GivingTuesdayAR on Dec. 1

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Pulaski Technical College Foundation will participate in #GivingTuesdayAR on Dec. 1, a day that focuses on holiday giving rather than holiday spending.

At PTC, more than 60 percent of students rely on financial aid through scholarships, grants and loans, while 90 percent work full- or part-time. With a somewhat small allocation from the state, tuition and fees must generate almost half of Pulaski Tech’s operating costs, whereas most colleges’ student fees account for a mere 20 percent of their budgets.

NLR firefighters band together to honor community


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- For the last year and a half members of the department have been taking part in strenuous training. But it’s not to save lives, instead it's to honor them.

“We're busy training top to bottom. Constantly training,” said Lieutenant Josh Cox of the NLRFD.

Historic WWII tugboat docks in North Little Rock

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A tugboat with a place in history now has a permanent place to stay in North Little Rock.

The ship known as the USS Hoga helped hustle naval ships out of Pearl Harbor during the attack in 1941.

Historians think it's one of the last remaining ships still on the water that took part in that battle.

Now, the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum hopes she becomes a floating history lesson here alongside the submarine, the SS Razorback.

"We're one of two cities in the world. Honolulu, Hawaii and North Little Rock, Arkansas that has a vessel from the first day of the war with Japan and the attacks and the last day," said Bob Major, Executive Director of the North Little Rock Visitors and Convention Bureau.

The museum still needs the money to get the Hoga restored, especially below deck.
