Now it's Garland County -- UPDATE

Posted By on Tue, Sep 4, 2007 at 10:16 AM

A group known as Garland County Good Government has announced a press conference today on " the epidemic proportions of the escalating crime rate in Hot Springs and in Arkansas."

UPDATE: Here's an overview of the group's news conference. They say Hot Springs is now the state's violent crime rate leader. (Is Stodola paying this group to do this, or what?) Here also are some stats. The group's point would seem to be objections to other city spending -- official travel and new city offices rather than public safety.

City officials will respond that the crime rate dropped between 2005 and 2006.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
