    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Too often we report the negative news, but great things are happening in your community each day.

    Here's a look at a few stories that are on The Brighter Side...

    Prominent artist and University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Art professor, Danny Campbell, will be one of the featured artists on the Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage Cruise.

    His artworks, entitled 'Coral Reef Series,' are a tribute to his love for nature and scuba diving. 

    Professor Campbell's works are made from painted recycled tire fragments and found objects. 

    The Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage Cruise is held to support Historically Black Colleges and Universities around the country. 

    And there's something special in the water in Hot Springs--literally. 

    Hot Springs Municipal Utilities was named the winner in a drinking-water taste test sponsored by the Central District Arkansas Water Works and Water Environment Association. 

    Competitors included Benton Water, Center Grove Water Association, Central Arkansas Water, Jacksonville Water and Conway Corporation.

    Drinking water samples from each competitor were given blind labels and served to judges.
         
    And finally, lace up your running shoes and head to Searcy.
