Report crimes online in Garland County

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) - The Garland County Sheriff's Department has a new, high-tech, and convenient way for citizens to report crimes.

The department recently launched a feature on its website that allows people to file reports criminal online. This option is available for minor crimes - such as a missing bicycle, car damage, or harassing phone calls - that occur in Garland County. Victims can log online and fill out the basic information of the incident. Officers will then investigate the crime and contact the victim for further information.

The department suspects about 25 percent of crimes in the county can be reported online. Crime tips may also be submitted through this online process. This service does not apply to crimes that occurred in the city of Hot Springs or Hot Springs Village.

'Journeys in the Art of Clay'

'Journeys in the Art of Clay'

HOT SPRINGS, AR:    Inspired by the quote “Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree,” by Emily Bronte, Arkansas artist Lori Arnold created her latest body of work Journeys in The Art of Clay, an exhibition of new sculptural pieces.   Arnold’s work is anything but typical. Her clay art sculptures are a contemporary merge between human figure, architecture and nature created in an array of thoughtful, unique pieces that reflect the artist’s own intellectual journey and creative process. 

Arnold began her journey creating a special series of sculptures inspired by the organic forms of nature while serving as Artist in Residence at Hot Springs National Park in 2010.  With nature as her primary source of inspiration, she combines materials such as glass, clay, and found objects to explore relationships between form, space, texture and color. 

Schools, Health Department offer flu vaccines for K-12

Schools, Health Department offer flu vaccines for K-12

(LITTLE ROCK) —The Arkansas Department of Health (ADH), the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) and local school districts statewide are again offering the seasonal flu vaccine to school children in grades K-12 beginning the week of October 8. School clinics will be going on for the next several months.

Seasonal flu vaccine is not required for children to attend school, but it is highly recommended.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatricians (AAP) recommend everyone aged 6 months and older receive a seasonal flu vaccine every year.  Seasonal flu causes children to miss school and their parents to miss work.   If you have insurance, the ADH will ask your insurance company to pay for the cost of giving the vaccine.  If you do not have insurance or your insurance company does not pay, the shot will be no charge to you.

When the results of the four Take-Back Days to date are combined, they have removed more than 1.5 million pounds (774 tons) of medication from circulation.
