Cabot woman says new Walmart will ruin her property value

CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - A Cabot woman said a proposed Neighborhood Walmart to be built next door to her will ruin her property value.

"I'm sure the parking lot is going to be at the edge of my property," said Beckie Hawley.

Hawley said the retail giant initially discussed buying her home, but the talk went cold.

"They approached me and had me come and sign a contract," said Hawley. "They were surveying and doing things to the property next to us, but they weren't coming on mine, so I called our real estate agent."

Cabot Mayor Bill Cypert said two owners requested the city to change their zoning to commercial.

"Two property owners on Campground Road represented by a proxy agent have requested rezoning from r1 to c2," said Mayor Cypert. "On the east side, the back side of the lots on Campground Road there would have to be a 40 foot buffer zone with a privacy fence."

Governor proclaims Sept. Arkansas Volunteer Month

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Gov. Mike Beebe has declared September "Arkansas Volunteer Month" to honor the thousands of volunteers who work to make the state a better place to live.

Sherry Middleton, director of the Arkansas Department of Human Services' Division of Community Service and Nonprofit Support, says Arkansas volunteers provide services and problem-solving skills to people and communities throughout the state.

Middleton says it's the spirit of helping one another that officials hope to promote, and it is those who have demonstrated that spirit who will be recognized during the month.

A study conducted by the agency found that last year, 846 volunteer organizations in Arkansas reported volunteers serving more than 22 million hours. The estimated value of those hours totaled $624 million.

Today's Box Office: The Grandmaster

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV 11 Film Critic Jonathan Nettles on The Grandmaster.

Simply stated, The Grandmaster is a brief glimpse into the life of Ip Man, who is credited with training the legendary Bruce Lee. It's a biopic disguised as a King Fu movie. It's a glimpse into how China changed from the late 1920's to the late 1950's. It's an incredible piece of film.

Craig's Twist #89: Third Grade

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Third Grade is so critical. If a child isn't reading at grade level after 3rd grade, as he progresses through school, he'll fall further and further behind. Chances of dropping out of school increase, as do underemployment, welfare, and incarceration.

Some states use this as a barometer of how many prison beds they'll need. In the end, it costs us more than $330 billion nationwide. So what do we do?

As for me, I went out and passed out parking tickets. Yep, in downtown Little Rock. Truthfully, I had a blast. I have no authority to pass out parking tickets, but then again, these really aren't parking tickets although they look like it.

If you came out to your car and saw it on your windshield, you'd first think you'd gotten one, but if you were to look closer, you'll see there's nothing but Gibberish on one side. It's when you flip it over that you get this message:
