The 12th Annual Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas Electric Vehicle Rally will be held on Friday, April 17 at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds in Little Rock. The contest will include more than 243 participants representing 14 schools around the state. "This year we have a record number of participants which reflects the growing interest in electric vehicle technology," said Rob Roedel, manager of corporate communications for the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas. "Today's students thirst for innovative hands-on learning opportunities that challenge their ingenuity and encourage creativity. The electric vehicle curriculum provides these opportunities for hundreds of students in Arkansas." The students are involved in the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas Electric Vehicle program that includes a curriculum that incorporates a variety of disciplines, including math, auto mechanics, physics, engineering, electronics and journalism. Students participate in competitions that test the students' abilities and their vehicles' performance capacities. The public is invited to attend the free rally events that begin at 9 a.m. The day-long event begins with technical and safety inspections of the student vehicles. Students are then focused on an autocross competition and acceleration event. Next, the helmets are unstrapped as the students test their academic knowledge in troubleshooting and quiz bowl competitions. The day wraps up with a race to determine how far the vehicles run on a single charge. On-track and pit lane strategies are a key to winning this event. Participants in this year's rally include: Arkansas Career Training Institute; Cabot High School; Central Jr. High (Springdale); Fayetteville High School - Agriculture; Fayetteville High School -Digital Electronics; George Jr. High (Springdale); Hamburg High School; Hillcrest High School; Mabelvale Jr. High; Paragould High School; Ramay Jr. High (Fayetteville); Joe T.

good morning to you, my KARK family. its Friday and its time for a very special MVP of the week. A women who would have ever reason to say she already has has enough on her plate, with being a single mom raising young boys, on her own ,while having a full time job and still making the time and effort to help others. this weeks mvp is Stacy Jordan Lovell. This single mom with a full time job finds time to be on the board of Women's Own Worth helping victims of domestic violence and violent crimes. i know first hand how difficult of a task it is to be a single mom and also understand the challenges she faces everyday, but She goes above and beyond to lift and empower all that come in contact with her. Most recently she helped Carl Carter with organizing events surrounding the LR 5k run in honor of his Mother, Beverly Carter, the Realtor that was murdered last year. the person that nominated Stacy said that " and i quote " She will most likely try and not receive this recognition because, you see, that's just the person she is. It's never about her it's about others. That's why I feel Stacy is the perfect person to receive this award." and quote. and i say to that, you couldn't be anymore right. congrats to you Stacey Jordan Lovell on being my MVP of the week.

Millie is a total sweetheart. I don't have any background on her, but she is a heartworm survivor, completely recovered, who came to the shelter with heartworms. She's a settled, middle-aged black lab-mix gal, about 8 years old. A larger dog, maybe 60 pounds, but with shorter legs. From the gentle, nonobtrusive way she's behaved around the Mullins's house this afternoon, she would be IDEAL companion for a less active person, someone who wants a quiet, loving companion. In fact, she probably would be happier in a calm household where she gets lots of love and attention. She's gotten along fine with our other dogs -- ages @7-17. She probably weighs in close to 60 pounds of sweetness. I don't know how she is around children, but I'll bet that she would be fine -- especially with older calm children. Seems to be housebroken and HUNGRY for human attention. Her little stub tag goes at a furious pace when Barbara or I speak to her or pet her.

The Arkansas Derby is an American flat Thoroughbred horse race for three-year-olds held annually in April at Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas. It is currently a Grade I race run over a distance of 9 furlongs on dirt. In 2004, Oaklawn Park offered a $5 million bonus to any horse that could sweep its three-year-old graded stakes, the Rebel Stakes and the Arkansas Derby, and then take the Kentucky Derby.  This helped increase participation from the top three-year-olds in the country to the point where the American Graded Stakes Committee made the Arkansas Derby a Grade I race in 2010.  Smarty Jones was the first horse to collect the bonus. Past winners of the race have gone on to win many American Classic Races. 1980 winner Temperence Hill and 1998's Victory Gallop both went on to capture the Belmont Stakes. Sunny's Halo won the 1983 Kentucky Derby as did Smarty Jones in 2004. Elocutionist (1976), Tank's Prospect (1985), Pine Bluff (1992), Smarty Jones (2004), Afleet Alex (2005), Curlin (2007) all won the Preakness Stakes. The 1994 winner, Concern, won that year's Breeders' Cup Classic. The inaugural race in 1936 offered a total purse of $5,000. The first winner was Holl Image, who was owned and trained by Jack Carter. The race was run in two divisions in 1960.

An Arkansas native now playing in the NFL has nominated his hometown elementary school for a special surprise. Cedric Thornton of the Philadelphia Eagles has partnered with Athletes for Charity* to nominate Jimmy Brown Elementary School, in Star City, to receive nearly $10,000 worth of brand new books to encourage the students to read more and excel academically. A news release from the charity explains that the project is a part of its Youth Literacy Initiative. Every student in the selected school receives a free book for them to keep and take home with them. The books will range from various Cat in the Hat titles to Disney's The Wonderful World of book series and biographies on Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and other notables. Athletes for Charity has reached out to the District's Superintendent and the school's Principal to extend the invitation to them. The Mayor of Star City, Paul Carter, has already confirmed that he would be willing to join their hometown sports hero, Cedric, to help distribute the books to every child. There are nearly 850 students attending Jimmy Brown Elementary School. Once the event is confirmed by the district and school, Cedric will coordinate his travels from Philadelphia, PA back home to serve as "Principal for a Day" and host grade level assemblies for the students. According to Thornton's bio on the Philadelphia Eagles website, he grew up in Tarry (Lincoln County) and graduated from Star City High School. He went on to attend Southern Arkansas University before signing with the team in 2011 as a rookie free agent. *Athletes for Charity is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to serve as a charitable initiative dedicated towards encouraging the giving of time, financial resources, and information to improve the collective lives of disadvantaged youth, advance the common good and support the nonprofit sectors that benefit the underprivileged, including foster care children.

Hallie was found by a Good Samaritan who brought her to the Humane Society of Pulaski County. She has been completely declawed (all 4 feet).

Tilly's Chic Boutique is a family owned and operated women's apparel business. It all started one day when my mom and I were discussing our desire to go into business together. I confessed my dream of owning an online boutique; and she was immediately intrigued. We called my father and sister who were also interested and excited, and immediately we got started making this dream a reality. We named our business after my daughter, whom I often call "Tilly." She is the oldest grandchild in the family and at just seven years old embodies the same qualities we hope our business will. She is smart, confident, and just the right amount of sassy. We think these are exactly the qualities of the women who will LOVE our clothes! Our family has a strong work ethic and an understanding of what it takes to provide exceptional customer service. It is our sincere hope that we can WOW you with our fantastic clothing, affordable prices, fast shipping, and commitment to you. http://tillyschicboutique.com/

After a great deal of planning, many trips to other colleges/universities to view their Greek housing and a lot of hard work by a countless number of people, a Greek Village is finally being built at UCA! With Phase One of the project slated to open at the beginning of the fall 2015 semester, the Greek Village project will accommodate the many needs of an expanding fraternity/sorority with beautiful housing, chapter room spaces, and brand new common-use spaces.

A vehicle's suspension system is tough. It can last for years and tens of thousands of miles for Little Rock motorists. But it can be damaged quickly by hitting a pothole, curb or rock, and it can wear more quickly if you frequently drive off-road or on bumpy roads. A workhorse vehicle - one that hauls heavy loads - is also going to be hard on its suspension system. An ineffective suspension system will diminish the driver's control over a vehicle, so when it is damaged it frequently leads to the worst kind of vehicular damage - dangerous and expensive accidents. The suspension system is composed of springs and shock absorbers (or shocks). Over time, steering and suspension components wear out and require replacement. Regular checks are critical to maintain a safe car. Factors that affect wear include: Driving habits Operating conditions (potholes in road) Vehicle type Type of steering and suspension system Frequency of regular maintenance such as chassis lubrication and wheel alignment
