LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Too often we report the negative news, but great things are happening in your community each day.
Here's a look at a few stories that are on The Brighter Side...
More than 100 senior citizens at Buffington Tower in Little Rock will benefit from a $218,000 grant.
This money will help provide health care, meals, and supportive services through HUD.
Here's how it works: The grants are awarded to owners of housing developments that receive rental subsidies. They are then able to hire service coordinators to assist their residents with special needs.
Congratulations to the National Guard Professional Education Center at Camp Robinson. Governor Mike Beebe presented them with 2012 Governor's Quality Achievement Award last month.
Commandant Colonial Timothy Keasling accepted the award on behalf of more than 600 active duty soldiers and civilians who provide training support at the education center.
Since it's doors in 1974, the school has trained more than half a million soldiers, and had nearly 18,000 graduates last year.
And expect to see more trees soon in El Dorado.
The Arkansas Urban Forestry Council (AUFC) held a workshop this week for those interested in enhancing their community with trees.
Attendees learned how to implement tree projects and design streetscapes.
AUFC says that trees can attract businesses and visitors, encourage economic development and ultimately increasing a city's tax base.
