Richie Clark Clothing makes Little Rock Fashion Week debut

Richie Clark Clothing is owned and operated by Little Rock fashion designer, Shamirra Clark, and will be making its Little Rock Fashion Week debut on Saturday, July 19th from 6-10 PM at the Statehouse Convention Center.  As an artist and designer, Clark draws inspiration from her surroundings and through her vision of the future of fashion. Richie Clark Clothing is youthful and modern whilst keeping a woman's sensuality at the heart of each product. 

Clark says of her Fall/Winter 2014 collection, "In this collection you will be seeing a lot of faux leather mixed with metallic pieces.  The Richie Clark client knows who she is and is not afraid to show it. Never the wallflower, ever the free-spirit, Richie Clark ladies leave their mark everywhere they go.  This is what will shine through at Saturday night's show."

Dems target women with bills on contraception, pay

Dems target women with bills on contraception, pay


WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic and Republican Senators are pouring significant time and energy into pursuing female voters, a coveted prize in the Nov. 4 elections.

Wednesday's Senate vote on contraception legislation is the latest example of Democrats' win-by-losing strategy, which forces Republicans to vote on sensitive matters that might rile women this fall.

Recent votes on "pay equity" and family leave issues were similarly aimed at women, who are increasingly crucial to Democrats' election hopes, and therefore worrisome to Republicans. Any shift in women's typical turnout or Democratic tilt this fall could determine tight elections, especially for the Senate.

Republicans need to gain six Senate seats to control the chamber, and these women's issues are especially lively in the most contested states, including Colorado, North Carolina, Arkansas and Louisiana.

Blood drives happening in August

Blood drives happening in August

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Red Cross)— The American Red Cross encourages all eligible blood donors to make an appointment to donate blood soon to help prevent a shortage.

During the summer months, on average, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what is needed to meet the needs of patients. Vacations and summer activities are among the reasons regular donors may not find the time to give. But, patients don’t get a vacation from needing blood – the need is constant.

As a national network, the Red Cross has a unique responsibility to help ensure blood is available for patients whenever and wherever it is needed. By donating blood or platelets through the Red Cross, donors may be helping patients in their community or patients across the nation.

Red blood cells have a shelf life of only 42 days and platelets just five days, so they must constantly be replenished.

American Red Cross assists families displaced in Hot Springs' Village Square Apartment fire


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (American Red Cross) – Disaster Responders with the American Red Cross in Arkansas provided care residents after an early morning blaze destroyed 24 units at the Village Square Apartments, 200 Lakeland Drive, Hot Springs.

Red Cross is providing support for food, clothing and critical medication for those displaced, with the addition of emergency stay in hotels for 14 families totaling 30 individuals. Casework will continue with the remaining 15 residents to meet their emergency needs.

"22 of the 24 units were occupied,' stated American Red Cross in Arkansas Communications Officer, Brigette Williams. "If there is a small silver lining, it's that the apartment management required renter's insurance, which will provide additional help towards recovery."
