‘THV11 in Your Town’ feature: Arkadelphia

‘THV11 in Your Town’ feature: Arkadelphia

ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (KTHV) – For my second THV 11 in My Town feature, I headed out to Arkadelphia for a day and found quite a few great things to highlight.

ARKADELPHIA ALLIANCE AND DEMOGRAPHICS

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.

William J. Clinton Center debuts new temporary exhibit

William J. Clinton Center debuts new temporary exhibit

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (WJCPC) -- The William J. Clinton Presidential Center debuts its newest temporary exhibit, “Spies, Traitors, and Saboteurs: Fear and Freedom in America,” on Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014.  This exhibit, from the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., provides guests with an historic perspective on acts of terror that have taken place on American soil.  Open through April 27, 2014, this exhibition reminds us that Americans have known and dealt with acts of terror since the founding days of the republic and will continue to face these challenges in the years ahead.

“Spies, Traitors, and Saboteurs” explores nine major events and periods in U.S. history when Americans were threatened by domestic enemies. With each major event, guests can track the incident as it happened, witness the government and public response, and examine the complexities of securing the nation without compromising the civil liberties upon which it was founded.
