Arkansas to survey bears in 2 zones


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is planning to survey bears in two zones that cover much of southern Arkansas.

The survey will be in bear zones 3 and 4 that include all of Grant, Cleveland, Dallas, Nevada, Ouachita, Calhoun, Bradley, Drew, Ashley, Union, Columbia, Lafayette, Hempstead, Little River and Miller counties. The zones also include parts of Pulaski, Saline, Hot Spring, Clark, Pike, Howard, Sevier, Jefferson, Lincoln, Chicot and Desha counties.

New security measures added to Benton Schools


BENTON, Ark.(KTHV) - Over the summer, the Benton School District made modifications to ensure that all of its buildings keep unwanted visitors out.

Benton School District Superintendent Jeff Collum said students and parents will notice a new look to the entrances of Benton schools as they head back to class next week.

"One of the things you'll see and that parents will see when they come to school on Monday are what we're calling two-tier safety entrances."

Collum said visitors won't be allowed into the building without passing through a holding area and presenting their ID.

The new security measures have been added to all of Benton's elementary schools, middle school and junior high. The high school was already equipped with the upgrades.

Elementary school Principal Stacy Shellnut says the changes will make the school day go smoother.
