Pine Bluff landmark closes after 40 years of business


PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - After 40 years of business the burger shack Sno-White Grill that so many call home is going out of business.

The grill, which sits on 3rd Avenue, has been regarded as one of Pine Bluff's best since it was founded in the 1970's but at age 78 its owner Bobby Garner is calling it quits.

"If you keep talking to me I'll start crying," Garner said when asked how he felt about closing shop.

The business was founded in the mid-70's and has endured a fire, plus visits from dozens of famous customers, including Bill Clinton.

It's acted as a source of familiarity for regulars who call the other patrons family.

"Just so many people had so many memories here it's hard for a lot of them to give them up," said Glynn Bishop, who comes to the restaurant twice a day six times a week.

"This place has been around longer than I have," added local Etoyle Mouser.

Pine Bluff store keeping teens off the street


PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - A Pine Bluff non-profit opened a retail store on Friday to help kids stay off the streets.

The non-profit called Full Circle 360, is teaching teens how to manage their own business but more importantly how prepare for careers in the future.

Teenagers between the age of 14 to 17 are helping run their own retail store.

"Show them how important work is and help them develop positive work skills like being on time, and having to get along with co-workers and things of that nature," said Alex Price, the founder of Full Circle 360.

The non-profit helps the elderly and the youth develop skills necessary to thrive and live successfully.

"Shopping gives them something to do and it helps enhance what they learn in school."

In honor of this holiday, school leaders chose to reenact the Selma March that was led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 50 years ago.

They say the city of Pine Bluff gets a bad rap, and Friday they just wanted to do something positive.

"Anytime there's some type of right you're being denied, whether it's civil or anything else, you don't have to fight or respond with violence and so this is a very peaceful march just celebrating the city," said Brent Mitchell, Lighthouse Charter School.

More than 300 students took part in Friday's march along with the fire and police departments as well as other city leaders.
