Uber app attempts medicine delivery service

Uber app attempts medicine delivery service


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (UNDATED) - A cutting-edge car service is trying to change the way you get your medicine.

Uber has changed the world of transportation but can it cater to your drug store needs?

The company announced a trial service in Washington D.C. that offers on demand delivery of medicine and other drug store products.

Users select the "corner store" option in the app, and send a text with a link to items available to buy. An Uber driver then calls you to take your order, and when they get to your house, the purchase is charged to your account.

Right now, the city of Little Rock is debating whether to bring Uber service here.

Lonoke nonprofit provides free school supplies for kids


LONOKE, Ark. (KTHV) - It was an emotional day for two Lonoke women whose non-profit thrift shop sponsored its first ever school supply give away for local children.

"We both at a young age were struggling mothers with children so we've been there, done that," said Donna Waddle, who along with Kim Martin opened the 2nd Chance Outreach Thrift Shop June 16th. "We have been on the receiving end so all we're trying to do is give back."

On Friday, the women gave away school supplies they purchased with profits from the thrift store. By the end of the day, more than 60 kids had new pencils, pens, paper, and notebooks. "I'm thankful. That's all I can say," said Susan Fritz. "Without it, the first day they might not even have a pencil."

Invasive emerald ash borer found in Arkansas

Invasive emerald ash borer found in Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The emerald ash borer, a tiny Asian insect, is responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of trees in the U.S. since 2002. 12 years later, the beetle has found its way to Arkansas.

 

Sam Kim, an entomologist and the State Survey Coordinator for the Plant Board, says the insects have been found in 6 counties, all in south Arkansas.

 

"It can migrate, but the quickest and fastest way that it's moving this far south is by transportation of firewood."

 

Wednesday, Scott Bray with the Arkansas State Plant Board says they held a meeting to discuss how to stop it.

 

"Right now we're trying to determine how we want to go forward with a quarantine whether it will be on a county by county basis, regional basis or consists of the entire state as some other states have done."
