Emma takes victory lap on Emma Day

Emma takes victory lap on Emma Day

QUITMAN, Ark. (KTHV) – If you entered the Quitman High School gym on Friday, you would have seen a winter wonderland. A carpet of snow blanketed the gym floor, a machine pumped snow into the air, and one very popular song from the movie “Frozen” belted through the speakers as students and faculty gathered together to celebrate Emma Day.

What is Emma Day? It’s a very special celebration of one tough little girl who is battling stage-four osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. The Panama, Okla., native has been receiving treatments at UAMS right here in Little Rock and happened to meet one of Quitman’s teachers—Theresa Hawks—who was undergoing her own therapy for cervical cancer.

Armyworms march through Arkansas

Armyworms march through Arkansas


LITTLE ROCK, Ark.(KTHV)- If you see a brown lawn in your neighborhood, don't jump to blame the weather or a lazy homeowner. The culprit could be the armyworm.

They look exactly like caterpillars. The insects can turn lawns from green to brown in a matter of days by eating the healthy blades of grass.

At the Pleasant Valley Country Club in Little Rock, golf course superintendent Don Armbrust keeps a close eye on the course's grass.

"Noticed a discoloration or what appeared to be drought-stress within the turf grass area."

A strange occurrence considering the amount of rain the state received during the month of July. At the beginning of August, Armbrust discovered fall armyworms eating away at the grass.

"With the cool, wet spring that we had it was definitely something we had to look out for and we ended up having to treat almost all the rough areas around the golf course."
