* KARK reports that Hot Springs is prepared to buy the Majestic Hotel property, now a pile of rubble following a huge fire. It would pay $680,000 and the owner would have to agree to enter a no-contest plea to code violations and pay resulting fines. The city would also be responsible for completing the cleanup of rubble from the 2014 fire.
