Tackling the storm: 'Gone Fishin' sign hangs out for tornado relief


MAYFLOWER, Ark. (KTHV) - With every passing week, people recovering from April's tornado find new challenges, but they also find new sources of help and hope. Sunday, tornado victims in Mayflower got free rods, bait, and tackle to help recover. While a nice day out on the lake may not sound like the most pressing necessity right now, it's exactly what some people needed.

Sunday was T.J. Sullen's first time fishing, and it didn't exactly as he had hoped, but that's ok because his mom, Barbara, was right there by his side to help him out, and it's something to take her mind off of the long recovery from April's tornado.

Barbara's family didn't lose everything in the storm but were one of more than 50 other families that cast their problems next to Lake Conway Sunday.

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.
