Panel to discuss crime in Garland County

Please join us and a distinguished panel this evening which will address Crime in Hot Springs and Garland County.  As you know, the 2010 New York Times Almanac (page 321) listed the Hot Springs MSA as having the highest crime in the country.  More current data shows that our area is now ranked as number 6.  Our panel this evening will focus on continuing efforts to reduce crime.  We will also have a report on the jail status and hopefully, a surprise guest (or two) with some quite current information only available at this evening’s meeting.

Please attend and be part of continuing the progress toward further reducing crime in our community.  The meeting will begin promptly at 6 PM in the Garland County Library Auditorium.

Jake Mo ‘Perfect’ In Final Work Before Ark. Derby


Stephen Brown’s Jake Mo had some hop to his step during an Easter morning workout at Oaklawn as he lays in wait as a potential upsetter in Saturday’s $1 million Arkansas Derby (G1).


The fourth-place finisher in the Rebel Stakes (G2) and runner-up in a division of the Southwest Stakes (G3) has been close to breaking through all season for trainer Allen Milligan. Sunday’s work was further evidence in his mind the son of 2005 Kentucky Derby winner Giacomo deserves a chance in the marquee event of the Oaklawn season.


“He’s always overcome everything and he’s always running at the end,” said Milligan, who is in contention for leading trainer this season. Jake Mo breezed five furlongs in 1:00 under Martin Escobar in a move described as “perfect” and “super.” Regular jockey Cliff Berry took the holiday off but will be back aboard Saturday.
