Here's the Thursday open line and our roundup of the day's news by video.

ALSO:

* LORENE JOSHUA DIES AT 84: KARK has a notice on the death of Lorene Joshua, 84, former president of the NLR Chapter of the NAACP. Her name has already gone down in history for her role in the Pulaski County desegregation. It is Mrs. Joshua who gives her name to the "Joshua intervenors," the representatives of black students in Pulaski County schools whose interest lawyer John Walker has represented for so long.  Funeral is at noon Jan. 19 at St. Peter's Rock Baptist Church in North Little Rock.
