Mobility van could give woman independence for first time in 16 years

Mobility van could give woman independence for first time in 16 years

CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) is giving local heroes from across the country a chance to win a custom Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle. One of the local heroes nominated for the competition is from right here in central Arkansas.

Becky Justice, a 38-year-old from Cabot, has been proving people wrong most of her life. Affected with Spina Bifida*, Justice said she fought her school in the early 1990s to make the campus wheelchair accessible rather than giving in and finding a different school. Now, she’s trying to once again to gain her independence through a contest made possible by NMEDA.

 “I was told that I helped to start the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) because of my part in helping to make the school wheelchair accessible,” Justice wrote on her NMEDA entry.

Pine Bluff election called into question

PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - Allegations of a conspiracy to hijack the government of a central Arkansas city as the former mayor of Pine Bluff has filed to run in an election that some say should not exist. Current Pine Bluff mayor Debe Hollingsworth said Monday afternoon that she's confident that a judge will sort the whole thing out and that right now she's focused on meeting the needs of the city.

"We don't know what will happen from this point, but, the good thing is time is on our side," said Hollingsworth, inferring that the proposed election won't take place until November, if at all. "What's best for our city? And how do we move the city forward? And, if there is an election, how do we go about making it happen that will be the best for our city? And that part I don't know yet, I'm still thinking on it."
