Update: Pine Bluff Council strikes down public vote on club hours

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Pine Bluff nightclubs will stay open until 5 a.m. unless enough signatures are gathered to let the voters decide.

City Council members struck down an ordinance with a 6 to 2 vote last night that would have allowed residents to choose clubs' hours of operation through a special election.

If a special election is held, there would be no cost to tax payers because the question would be added to the May primary election. 
 

Today's Box Office: Robocop and About Last Night

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV Film Critic Jonathan Nettles on a romantic movie and not so romantic movie hitting theaters this weekend.

This Valentine's Day weekend is all about remaking movies from the mid-80's. The first one is a rehash of  Robocop which is one of the most violent movies ever made. In terms of the science fiction/action movie genre, it's considered a classic. Paul Verhoeven's 1987 film was a satire of corporate America and corrupt politicians featuring extreme violence, lots of curse words, and a general statement on poverty and the war on crime. 2014's Robocop has been turned into a PG-13 actioner with a lack of satire and more focus on the man in the machine than the machine itself.

Today's Box Office: The Monuments Men

The word I would use to describe The Monuments Men is disappointing. It's an interesting premise based on the true story of a small group of art enthusiasts who are sent by the U.S. Army to find, protect, and return European works of art that have been stolen by the Nazi's in World War 2. While it is a story that you probably have never heard and was a pretty important mission, George Clooney as director just didn't deliver in telling a compelling story.

Environmental and controlled burns planned in Pine Bluff

PINE BLUFF, Ark. (PINE BLUFF ARSENAL) - The local community should not be alarmed if they see large plumes of smoke coming from Pine Bluff Arsenal beginning Feb. 10 through Mar. 28.

The Nature Conservancy's Arkansas field office and the Arsenal's Fire and Emergency Services will both be conducting multiple prescribed and controlled burns during this time. These burns serve as an environmental benefit, not only to reduce wildfire risk by removing fuel levels and loading from the forest floor, but also act as timber stand and wildlife habitat improvements.

The planning of controlled burns includes safety plans, smoke management plans, and fire intensity levels to include flame heights and flame speeds. All controlled burns will be conducted by specially-trained and equipped crews skilled at fire management operations.
