Asian beetle found in southwestern Arkansas


HOPE, Ark. (AP) - An Asian beetle that's blamed for killing millions of ash trees in the United States has been found in southwestern Arkansas.

The Arkansas Plant Board and the state Agriculture Department says the emerald ash borer has been found in Hot Spring, Clark and Nevada counties.

The beetle was first seen in the U.S. when it was found in Michigan in 2002. It's believed to have arrived on wood packing material carried in cargo ships or airplanes originating in Asia.

The discovery may mean adding Arkansas to a federal quarantine that prohibits movement of firewood and nursery stock in an effort to slow the spread of the insect.

Extension forester Jon Barry with the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture says the beetle was likely brought to Arkansas in imported firewood.

Reward offered for information on escaped convict

JEFFERON COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - The Arkansas Department of Corrections is now offering a reward for information leading to the capture of an escaped convict.

On Thursday, July 24, ADC spokesperson Shea Wilson said there is now $4,000 in reward money available for information leading to Timothy Buffington's capture and arrest. Buffington walked away from work detail at the Pine Bluff Unit about a month ago.

He is said to have shot his ex-wife Rhonda Combs in the head with a rifle while she sat in her boyfriend's truck in Booneville in July of 1998. According to Wilson, he was admitted to ADC on March 12, 1999. Combs and Buffington had been in a custody dispute over their two children.

My Town Hero: The Motivator

My Town Hero: The Motivator

JACKSONVILLE Ark. (KTHV) - Every now and then, we find ourselves stuck in a rut. One man in the city of Jacksonville has made it his duty to inspire just about everyone he encounters. It's one of many reasons he was nominated for My Town Hero.

When James Bolden is on the move, he's bound to light someone on fire with enthusiasm.

"He makes people feel motivated by his demeanor, his behavior, personality everything about him," said Jill Ross, Jacksonville human resource director. Internationally, he's known as The Motivator, but Ross also knows him as a city alderman. When employee morale was down, she knew exactly who to turn to. "He spent 15 hours of his own time training 300 city employees.”

She said Alderman Bolden spent an hour teaching them how to handle stress and stay motivated during tough economic times.
