Local resident reflects on time with Negro Baseball League

Local resident reflects on time with Negro Baseball League

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (Hot Springs Daily) - In 1946 a young 17 year old black youth from Beloit, Wisconsin showed up for a try out with the St. Louis Cardinals Baseball team, only because he was pushed to do so by his father and his American Legion league coach. He really didn’t want to be there, he didn’t think he belonged. After all, he was the only black ball player among the forty or fifty that showed up. Immediately after the try out – fielding, throwing, hitting, base running, etc., the undersized boy – 5’6” and 125 lbs – got on his bicycle and rode off, while the other attendees gathered with the coaches and scouts to see if they would be chosen to move to the next level.

MOCA moves to Paragould

MOCA moves to Paragould

Contemporary Art museum lost money in Hot Springs.
by Leslie Newell Peacock

The permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Hot Springs, which closed last October for financial reasons, was transported to Paragould last week by Dr. John G. Bibb, who hopes to create a museum there.

MOCA board member Richard Gipe of Hot Springs Village, who Bibb asked to handle interviews, said the museum was unable to "break even" in its home in the former Ozark bathhouse on Central Avenue. The Ozark is owned by the National Park Service, which has new, but as yet undisclosed, plans for its use, Park Superintendent Josie Fernandez said.

If the museum couldn't make it in Hot Springs, which has a population of 35,478 (2013), a gallery row along Central and notable tourism dollars thanks to Oaklawn Race Track and its proximity to Lakes Hamilton and Catherine, will it make it in Paragould (population 27,016 in 2013)?
