Tailgating safety tips from Ark Dept. of Health

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Ark. Dept. of Health) - Whether it's for one of the state's college football teams or for a pee-wee league, Arkansas families love to tailgate. It is a time-honored tradition that brings families and friends together to celebrate in the beautiful fall weather. If you are planning a tailgate, here are some safety tips that you may want to consider from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to ensure your food tastes delicious and doesn't make anyone sick.

When you're transporting food to the game, make sure you pack it securely in coolers to keep it cold. The cooler should be the same temperature as your refrigerator, about 40 degrees F. Keep raw meats wrapped tightly and stored away from other foods so their juices don't drip.

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.
