Sport Clips Haircuts opens first location in Hot Springs

HOT SPRINGS, AR – Sport Clips, the nation’s leading men’s and boys’ hair care franchise, will open its first location in Hot Springs on Friday. The store, located at 1412 Higdon Ferry Road, will be the newest addition to over 750 stores in the US, each providing a unique environment for guys to get a haircut. “Everyone needs a haircut, and we’ve been true to our mission of creating a championship haircut experience for men and boys in an exciting sports environment. That’s why the Sport Clips concept continues to grow in Arkansas and across the country,” said Scott Richburg, Sport Clips’ Team Leader (franchisee) for the Hot Springs and Little Rock area locations. “We’re hassle-free, family friendly, and provide a quality service,” he said.

Richburg, a resident of Little Rock for 18 years, worked as a civil engineer prior to making his Sport Clips business a full-time career.

Ouachita National Forest to implement designated car routes

Ouachita National Forest to implement designated car routes

Designations for motorized travel routes in the Ouachita National Forest are slated to be implemented in late winter or early spring 2011. Publication of Motor Vehicle Use Maps, commonly referred to as MVUMs, will officially begin implementation of the forest’s travel management plan.

In 2005, the Forest Service issued a Travel Management Rule which called for each of America’s 155 National Forests to designate a travel system for motorized vehicles, including off highway vehicles (OHVs). The rule was established to limit harmful environmental impacts associated with unregulated OHV use on National Forest land.

“More than 3,100 miles of forest roads and trails for motorized vehicles will offer a lot of opportunities to get out and experience the national forest,” said Forest Supervisor Norman Wagoner.
