National forests firewood permits help slash heating costs


RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (September 16, 2014) – As cooler temperatures loom around the corner, many homeowners are considering how best to heat their homes this winter. The Ozark-St. Francis and Ouachita National Forests are helping homeowners answer this question by offering firewood permits in many areas of the Arkansas and Oklahoma forests.

"Collecting dead and down firewood on national forests is a great way to help bear the high cost of beating colder temperatures," said Shawn Cochran, Ozark-St. Francis National Forests Ecosystems Staff Officer. "Firewood permits are affordable; they help remove burnable material from the forest floor, and wood heat is both economical and efficient."

‘THV in Your Town’ feature: Pine Bluff

PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - I spent the day visiting Pine Bluff, walking around and going to different visitor centers. Before I visited the area, I posted on Facebook that I was going to Pine Bluff (See original post: http://on.kthv.com/1jbwVrA). Based on some comments left by folks there, I half-expected to find a city in shambles, with decrepit buildings and sporting a mere shadow of a by-gone era. I was pleasantly surprised to find exactly the opposite.

First, I stopped by the Arkadelphia Alliance (Arkadelphia Regional Economic Development Alliance and Area Chamber of Commerce if you’re not into that whole brevity thing). There, executive vice president Shelley Loe talked to me about some of the great features in Arkadelphia and what the city had to offer.

If you’re into numbers, the city is home to around 10,714 citizens with 3,736 households as of the 2010 census. (See demographics info: http://on.kthv.com/1hwqnsh) It also offers two accredited 4-year institutions – Henderson State University and Ouachita Baptist University, and the area is home to three school districts—Arkadelphia, Gurdon, and Centerpoint.

CONWAY, Ark.
