    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...

    The Junior League of Little Rock has dusted off the holiday garland and twinkle lights in preparation for thousands of shoppers at Holiday House 2012.

    It's the place to find the newest gadgets and trendiest styles, and the chance to check a few gifts off your Christmas lists. 

    Best of all, when you support Holiday House, you're supporting community projects like Stuff the Bus, which provides kids with school supplies for the year.

    Holiday House is currently going on at the State House Convention Center. Hours are from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. today, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.

    And from shopping to fashion, Little Rock Fashion Week is currently accepting fashion design applicants wanting to showcase their clothing lines at the 5th annual fashion event, which will take place July 15-20, 2013. 

    In an added bonus,  designers' fashion lines chosen for Little Rock Fashion Week will also be featured at next year's Baltimore Fashion Week. 

    Little Rock Fashion Week has showcased over 75 fashion brands by local, national, international and student designers.

    If you think you have what it takes, email  joinus@littlerockfashionweek.com to request information on how you can showcase your fashion label.

    And despite rising education costs, U.S. News has ranked Ouachita Baptist University among the top 10 universities in the nation in the percentage of low-income Pell Grant recipients who earn a college degree. 

    OBU was the only school in Arkansas to receive this recognition.

    University president Dr. Rex Horne adds that Ouachita students graduate with less student loan debt than both the state and national averages.
