Recently the Danny Koker better known as "The Count" from History Channel's Counting Cars, was asked to officiate the wedding of Rick Harrison the star of another History Channel show, "Pawn Stars." They are two of the biggest shows on cable. Did you know the Count was an ordained minister? And did you know he has an Arkansas connection? What is it and who is his famous uncle? Answer: Before he became the tattooed, muscle car building host of Counting Cars, Danny Koker, traveled the country singing with his family as part of the Rex Humbard singers. That's right, the count's uncle is televangelist and singer Rex Humbard- you folks over the age of 40 may remember Rex Humbard. Humbard was born and raised in Little Rock and was the first evangelist to have a weekly nationwide television program in the United States. The show ran from 1952 to 1983 and was watched my millions. But Humbard also traveled the world preaching and singing and one of those singers, who was also a pretty good songwriter, was Humbard's nephew, Danny Koker- who traded his leisure suit and tie for tattoos and a bandana and is now doing pretty well in Vegas.

Fire crews continue to fight a fire at the Majestic Hotel in Hot Springs.
Their mission is to alleviate as much human suffering as possible by providing affordable footwear and a cup of clean, fresh water for those who thirst. Typical water transportation in Africa includes a bucket of some sort and sturdy feet. Walking a mile or more each way to collect water for drinking, watering animals and crops, or for cleaning and washing is not uncommon. When you donate your used and new shoes, Ozark Water Projects export them to distributors in South America, Haiti and Kenya. Shoe resale builds the local developing economy with micro businesses and affordable shoes for pennies on the dollar or barter. Affordable shoes are a life saving tool as they protect the new owner’s feet and overall health from foot abrasions, parasites and mites. Funds generated are used to purchase well-digging rigs, water purification systems, and other supplies to bring clean, fresh water to those in need.
As the Majestic Hotel remains on fire this morning we wanted to hear about viewers memories of the hotel before it closed down in 2006.
