LRFW impacts local community

LRFW impacts local community

By Tabitha Cooke

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW) is preparing for another great year and people in the community have the event marked in their calendars.

Every year, LRFW exceeds the expectations of an enjoyable and one-of-a-kind experience that merges designers, models and artists together to connect and establish their brands.

“LRFW is a great platform to allow those seeking careers in the modeling and fashion industry a leg to stand on in hopes of creating or expanding their brand,” said fashion designer, Nichole McGehee, who has been participating in LRFW since 2009. “As for me, LRFW has benefited me in helping to put my brand in the “spotlight” of the media. I feel that being a part of LRFW played a great part of my line becoming known on both a local and national level.”

Park plans for possible flooding at Tyler Bend Campground

Park plans for possible flooding at Tyler Bend Campground

HARRISON, Ark. (Buffalo National River) -  Although most of the immediate damage and anticipated threats appear to be concentrated in the Newton County portion of Buffalo National River, the park is taking steps in view of a high probability of flooding at Tyler Bend Campground off Highway 65 in Searcy County.  Park Maintenance has removed electrical assets in the flood plain at Tyler Bend.  

Until the threat passes, the pavilion restroom and group site restrooms will be closed.  Also closed are the group sites and walk-in campsites.  The “peanut loop” on higher ground will remain open with functioning restrooms and water.  If river levels rise above the 33 foot level at the Highway 65 bridge further closures may be necessary. These closures will include the remaining restrooms and campsites in the TB campground.

For current information and status of closures please call the Tyler Bend Visitor Center at 870/439-2502.
