Jefferson Co. Sheriff's Office issues reminder to parents on child identification

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ark. - (Oct. 29, 2015 – With recent flash news alerts regarding missing children, teens, and others alike throughout the state, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office decided to issue a reminder to all parents regarding the indentification of their children. 

Major Lafayette Woods, Jr. issued the following statement on Thursday:

When a child or someone you know is reported missing, emotions become raw, which can hinder the ability of parents or love ones to make rational decisions. Yet, their actions and the actions of law enforcement in the first 48 hours are critical to the safe recovery of a missing. Knowing what you can do, what others can do, and where to go for help will not only expedite the search and recovery of your child or love one, it also will help to ease the emotional and financial burden of the search.

Cabot Schools first student designed, built theatre set

Cabot Schools first student designed, built theatre set

CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - Students in Cabot are taking a step away from the books to put their hands to work on a new stage for the schools to use for upcoming plays. 

The students have drafted original floor plans and renderings that have led them to a final design, which they digitally drafted in Google Sketch Up. Teams were assigned certain jobs so that the stage could be set by deadline. 

According to school officials, the students have cut every board, primed every surface, turned plywood into hardwood with faux painting techniques, and even built a tree out of branches and 2x4s. One particular student, who took the lead on the design and drafting, will be presenting the finished product at Arkansas Thespians in February to compete for scholarships.
