Avoid being fined for illegal dumping

Avoid being fined for illegal dumping

CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - Clearing out winter's clutter and making way for Spring can be quite the task, but getting rid of the old is another ordeal. Buddy McConnell says, "You always come across something where someone's dumped something probably illegally."

As we drove down Ballinger street we found several unwanted electronic devices that appeared to be dumped on the side of the road. Not only is it an eye sore for the neighborhood but it also presents an environmental hazard.

McConnell says, "There's just so many toxic tHings in electronics." Cheryl Harrington of the Conway Sanitation Department adds, "and would cause great problems if it was to get into our water and our drinking system."

Court battle leaves dogs in limbo

Court battle leaves dogs in limbo

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Hundreds of Lonoke County dogs are in limbo at the Pulaski County Humane Society. They'll be there until a Supreme Court judge makes a decision. But it's getting costly.

"It's approximately two years, it will be two years, the end of June," said Dr. Teresa Medlock.

Dozens of dogs, 137 to be exact, have been at the Pulaski County Humane Society for the last two years.

They were taken from Sandra Nance's Lonoke County property in 2012 after a search by the Humane Society and Lonoke County Sheriff's Department found the dogs living in poor conditions.

"They are evidence in the court system case and so we're entrusted with their care until the resolution of the case," Medlock said.
