Historic Hot Springs hotel put on auction block

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - A real estate auctioneer says the Majestic Hotel complex will be for sale until next month.

A large fire ripped through the historic hotel in February, prompting the city to raze part of the complex and condemn the rest. Rubble has piled along Park Avenue since the blaze.

Don Erler with Sperry Van Ness tells The Sentinel-Record they were approached by Garrison Hassenflu, who's the manager of a company that owns the Majestic Hotel complex. Erler says Hassenflu wants to offer the Majestic Hotel properties with a starting bid of more than $1.2 million.

Erler says the auction of the 5.2-acre site will end on Nov. 12.

The state's department of environmental quality has approved a cleanup plan for the site. Work is expected to begin later this month.

Forest Service managers remind hunters to be safe during hunting season

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (October 10, 2014) — Forest Service managers are reminding hunters to be safe and follow state and federal law as hunting season begins on the Ouachita and Ozark-St. Francis National Forests in Arkansas and Oklahoma.

"During this time of year, when there are various hunting seasons occurring, everyone must be mindful of the dangers that exist when safety precautions aren't followed," said Ouachita National Forest Supervisor Norm Wagoner. "Some of those safety precautions include wearing hunter orange as your outermost gear so that you are visible to other hunters; being alert when hunting near developed areas and trails as non-hunters are enjoying the forest for other reasons; and telling someone where you will be hunting and when you will return."

Ozark-St. Francis National Forests Supervisor Reggie Blackwell said that all hunters are responsible for the safety of themselves and those around them.

UPDATE: Hot Springs rape suspect now in custody after 5th charge

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) – Hot Springs Police now have a rape suspect in custody after a fifth warrant was issued for kidnapping.

THV11's Astrid Solorzano was at the police station as Lynn Terrance Breckenridge, 24, turned himself in at 1 p.m. Thursday. She said that once inside, he was handcuffed and taken to booking to file paperwork.

Breckenridge had initially been charged with four counts of rape, two counts of aggravated assault, four counts of kidnapping, and one count of attempted rape. He pleaded not guilty to all charges, posted a $1 million bond Tuesday night, and was released. Sometime later, officers ordered the fifth warrant.

THV11 spoke to Felicia Epps, Associate Dean of UALR's School of Law, who said when it comes to bond, being charged and being convicted are two different things.
