CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) – Out on the outskirts of Conway, contagion has spread, the dead are walking, and the only safe house left in the country has been compromised.

Health Dept.: Arkansas patient cleared after Ebola testing

Health Dept.: Arkansas patient cleared after Ebola testing


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A patient was reportedly in isolation in a Clinton hospital with low risk for Ebola on Thursday.

Kerry Krell with the Arkansas Health Department said they were notified Thursday morning about the patient by the Ozark Health Medical Center.

According to a tweet by the Health Department later in the day, the patient has been cleared. There are no suspected or confirmed cases in Arkansas.

What initially caught the attention of the medical staff at Ozark Health Medical Center was the travel history and symptoms of the patient. Upon further testing and consultation with the health department, it was later determined that the patient was not at an increased risk for Ebola. The department, however, still took precautionary measures.

AG: Ruling 'clear' no voter ID for election

AG: Ruling 'clear' no voter ID for election


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The state's top lawyer and top election official say the Arkansas Supreme Court's decision striking down a voter ID law means the requirement to show photo identification before casting ballots won't be in effect for the November election.

A spokesman for Attorney General Dustin McDaniel said Thursday that the court's decision is "clear" that the law doesn't apply to the upcoming election. Early voting for the Nov. 4 election begins Monday.

Secretary of State Mark Martin's office said the ruling means the law reverts back to what it was before voter ID took effect this year, and voters won't be required to show photo identification at the polls.

The court unanimously struck down the law on Wednesday, saying it violated the constitution by adding a qualification for voting.

Blue Man Group to perform 2 shows in Conway


CONWAY — The phenomenally talented trio Blue Man Group will take the stage for two nights at the University of Central Arkansas's Reynolds Performance Hall on Nov. 3 and 4.

The concerts will begin at 7:30 p.m. Both shows are sold out, but turn-back tickets may become available.

It is the first time that Blue Man Group will perform at Reynolds Performance Hall. Reynolds originally only planned for one show but the high demand for tickets required another show to be added.
