84th Miss UAPB appears in September issue of EBONY

PINE BLUFF, Ark. (UAPB) –  Alexis Cole, Spring 2014 University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) graduate and 84th Miss UAPB is one of 10 campus queens to appear in the September issue of Ebony Magazine as part of their HBCU Queens feature.

“My experience being featured in Ebony Magazine as one of the Top 10 HBCU Queens was extremely overwhelming!,” exclaimed the Memphis, Tennessee native. “It was truly an honor to be in the presence of so many influential African-American young ladies."

The queens were also able to meet the Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, who was extremely outgoing and charismatic. The photo shoot was also a treat, according to Alexis.

“They treated us like true royalty. From the designer clothes we wore for the shoot to the celebrity hair and make-up artist who made us look beautiful, the entire experience was amazing!”

Ragweed season in full swing

Ragweed season in full swing


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Fall allergy season is already in the air. One of the most common allergens in Arkansas right now is ragweed.

"Here in Arkansas it usually begins in the second or third week of August," said Dr. Karl Sitz, Little Rock Allergy and Asthma Clinic. "And will peak in the first or second week of September, and continue until early October."

He said the plant is more recognizable that you may realize.

"It's a bush that you can look at as you're driving down the road and you'll see it growing on the side of the road in ditches," he said.

The classic symptoms include sneezing, stuffiness, watery eyes and a runny nose. But with other fall pollens in the air, it's hard to know for sure if ragweed is the cause of those symptoms.
