Altercation between hunters allegedly leads to shooting

ROMANCE, Ark. (KTHV) - An altercation between hunters allegedly lead to a shooting.

The White County Sheriff's Office said they, along with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, were called a field along Quattelbaum Road in Romance where they talked to a hunting party. Apparently one of the men was hunting on family property when he was confronted by another man armed with a pistol.

Deputies said the man with a pistol threatened the other and his father. The two wrestled for the gun, and during the struggle, the first hunter allegedly shot the man who was threatening him in the leg, added investigators.

The one who was shot was taken to White County Medical Center  treatment of his non life-threatening injury.

Governor proclaims Sept. Arkansas Volunteer Month

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Gov. Mike Beebe has declared September "Arkansas Volunteer Month" to honor the thousands of volunteers who work to make the state a better place to live.

Sherry Middleton, director of the Arkansas Department of Human Services' Division of Community Service and Nonprofit Support, says Arkansas volunteers provide services and problem-solving skills to people and communities throughout the state.

Middleton says it's the spirit of helping one another that officials hope to promote, and it is those who have demonstrated that spirit who will be recognized during the month.

A study conducted by the agency found that last year, 846 volunteer organizations in Arkansas reported volunteers serving more than 22 million hours. The estimated value of those hours totaled $624 million.

Today's Box Office: The Grandmaster

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV 11 Film Critic Jonathan Nettles on The Grandmaster.

Simply stated, The Grandmaster is a brief glimpse into the life of Ip Man, who is credited with training the legendary Bruce Lee. It's a biopic disguised as a King Fu movie. It's a glimpse into how China changed from the late 1920's to the late 1950's. It's an incredible piece of film.

Craig's Twist #89: Third Grade

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Third Grade is so critical. If a child isn't reading at grade level after 3rd grade, as he progresses through school, he'll fall further and further behind. Chances of dropping out of school increase, as do underemployment, welfare, and incarceration.

Some states use this as a barometer of how many prison beds they'll need. In the end, it costs us more than $330 billion nationwide. So what do we do?

As for me, I went out and passed out parking tickets. Yep, in downtown Little Rock. Truthfully, I had a blast. I have no authority to pass out parking tickets, but then again, these really aren't parking tickets although they look like it.

If you came out to your car and saw it on your windshield, you'd first think you'd gotten one, but if you were to look closer, you'll see there's nothing but Gibberish on one side. It's when you flip it over that you get this message:

A Place to Call Home: David

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - For a decade now, 16-year-old David has hoped and prayed a family would take him in, but he's had no such luck. Even through all the disappointment and heartbreak of losing his own family and never finding another, he refuses to give up hope.

David loves cheeseburgers, so the owners at Big Orange treated him to a feast of burgers, shakes, and everything in between, and it was pure heaven for this all-American teen.

"You can just build your own burger," co-owner Scott McGehee explained to David.
