Free workshop available for researching military records

Free workshop available for researching military records

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (MMAMH) - The MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History, in partnership with the Arkansas History Commission, will host a free workshop on researching military records on Saturday, August 16th from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The museum is located at 503 E. 9th St. in downtown Little Rock's MacArthur Park.

Most people today have family members who served in the military, from the Civil War, through World Wars I and II, to the present. Participants of this workshop will learn where to begin their research on finding records that pertain to a family member's military service. With new technology and the internet, researching personal records has never been so easy. However, these venues will not help if a person does not know where to go to begin the search. This two hour workshop, conducted by Arkansas History Commission staff, will educate the public on resources available to research military records.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV)- The US Department of Agriculture reports that Arkansas is the 6th fastest growing state in the country to increase its number of farmers markets. Within the last decade, the number of farmers markets in the state has tripled from 28 to 97.

Lance Cummings says he has seen markets expand across Little Rock. "We've got such a network of small growers that you can attribute that to the number of markets that are sprouting up." He says his family has been working at the Little Rock Farmer's market for 26 years now. "Being here for so long you build relationships and you have customers that come back to you specifically because they like the taste of what you're growing."

Thieves targeting tires and wheels in pawn shops

Thieves targeting tires and wheels in pawn shops


PULASKI COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - Pawn shops are having a difficult time slowing down thieves. On Monday night, Goodride Auto Care in North Little Rock had more than $25,000 worth of goods stolen, and Arch Street Pawn Shop in Pulaski County says they've been experiencing robbers as well.

"Me and my brother have been switching off staking out up here," said shop owner Brett Carter.

In the last 12 days, the shop has been robbed four times, losing goods to thieves that have tried pawning the tires off to other shops as used goods.

"It's so hard to tell if they're stolen or not," Carter continued, referring to the tires. "[Thieves] are stealing wheels and tires because they know there's no [serial] numbers on them, so there's no way you can say they're yours unless you have absolute proof, which is so hard to find."
