Results: Summer Cereal Drive live in Hot Springs


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV 11 was live in Hot Springs June 6 THV Summer Cereal Drive.

We were live all morning collecting boxes of cereal and monetary donations to help feed hungry kids and their families this summer.

The grand total from this morning was 2,946 boxes. They all benefit the food pantry at Faith Fellowship Church.

For the last 13 years, you, THV11, and the Arkansas Foodbank - in partnership with local businesses, groups, and schools - have teamed up during the summer months to provide healthy breakfast options for children and families in central Arkansas who would otherwise go without the most important meal of the day - breakfast.

We are collecting cereal starting today through June 27.

Majestic owner given 60 days to clean up rubble


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP/KTHV) - The owner of the Majestic Hotel in Hot Springs has been given 60 days to clean up the rubble left over from a fire that destroyed a large part of hotel complex in February.

The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality sent a letter Monday to Garrison Hassenflu, who owns the corporation that owns the Majestic property. The letter also says Hassenflu must submit a plan within 10 days detailing a removal plan for the debris at the Majestic site.

Hassenflu told THV11 Thursday that he actually isn't the owner, but he is a member of the company which owns the hotel. He said the company has been preparing to remove the debris for months, testing for asbestos and getting estimates.

Give blood with the American Red Cross and help maintain the summer blood supply

Give blood with the American Red Cross  and help maintain the summer blood supply

UNDATED (June 3, 2014) — The American Red Cross encourages eligible blood donors to make and keep donation appointments to maintain the summer blood supply and help prevent a shortage. Donors of all blood types are currently needed, especially those with type O negative, B negative and A negative.

While the need for blood remains constant during the summer, donations drop. Between June and August, on average, two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what hospitals need. This seasonal decline could be overcome if just two additional donors – above what is expected – give blood at each Red Cross blood drive this summer.

Hot Springs group to release downtown plan


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - A task force that has developed a plan for Hot Springs' downtown area is to release its findings.

The Downtown Game Plan Task Force started work in March and is to detail its proposals at an event at 2 p.m. Wednesday at the Hot Springs Convention Center Plaza.

The group was formed to help find ways to preserve the downtown area's distinctive architecture while bringing buildings up to modern standards.

The city has declared about two dozen buildings unsafe, and the century-old Majestic Hotel was condemned after being destroyed by fire in February.

The task force surveyed more than 300 stakeholders in downtown as it worked on its plan.
