Salaam started this community garden almost a year ago, teaming up with non-profit groups to open this Young Adult Opportunity Center. Both have been breathing new life into the community ever since.

CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - "It's tough," Kimberly Blanks explained how life was surviving on just $6.50 per hour worked. Blanks continued, "$6.50 is absurd. Irrational for some, but reality for Kimberly Blanks. "As a full time student, especially, you cannot live off of minimum wage," she added.

Minimum wage requirements is just one of many issues former President Bill Clinton addressed to this crowd at University of Central Arkansas. Clinton said, "We need to reform the student loan program, we need to find a way to help people refinance those loans at lower interest rates, we need to give everybody a chance to pay it back as a percentage of their income."

QUITMAN, Ark. (KTHV) – If you entered the Quitman High School gym on Friday, you would have seen a winter wonderland. A carpet of snow blanketed the gym floor, a machine pumped snow into the air, and one very popular song from the movie “Frozen” belted through the speakers as students and faculty gathered together to celebrate Emma Day.

What is Emma Day? It’s a very special celebration of one tough little girl who is battling stage-four osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. The Panama, Okla., native has been receiving treatments at UAMS right here in Little Rock and happened to meet one of Quitman’s teachers—Theresa Hawks—who was undergoing her own therapy for cervical cancer.
