If you are in a crisis or life storm, and left feeling helpless, hopeless, or disappointed; there is HOPE. No matter what stage of life you are going through, or how scary the feelings and situations can be, brainspotting can help. I have been trained in brainspotting and have seen firsthand the healing it can bring. Our brains our powerful and unique, but often store unfinished business and unprocessed trauma which leaves emotional scars inside or even physical pain. But with this approach, you can leave feeling relieved and hopeful with quick responses.

My passion is working with couples or adult individuals who have difficulty being relational--personally and/or professionally. I focus on healthy boundaries and self-esteem to help clients live authentically so they can have better connections to self and others. Often, coping strategies developed while growing up no longer work well in adulthood and keep people "stuck" and prevent them from being truly relational--whether it be with partners, children, parents, co-workers, employers, or friends. I teach and empower clients to have successful relationships to achieve more enriched, satisfying lives.

Depression, anxiety, trauma, self-image, anger, relationships, life changes -- all of these issues are part of the human condition. But to resolve these needs alone can be a very difficult journey. I have many years of counseling experience helping others to have a better understanding of their problems and how to best move forward to find some answers. Most individuals need to be heard and understood by an unbiased person. They need relief from the painful issues at hand. I've continued to receive training to keep up-to-date on the latest strategies, but it's my belief that developing a trusting, caring relationship is essential.

Suspect in Garland County shooting now faces murder charge

Sheriff Jake Houpt

Jake Houpt

Sheriff Houpt was shot and mortally wounded and his brother, a deputy, was wounded while attempting to arrest two brothers for stealing horses. The two suddenly produced pistols and opened fire as Sheriff Houpt and his brother were escorting them to jail. As the suspects fled, Sheriff Houpt and his brother returned fire killing one suspect and wounding the other. Sheriff Houpt died three days later.

The other suspect was captured three days after the shooting. On December 26, 1910, he was being escorted by a deputy sheriff from the Garland County Jail to the police station when three unidentified men walked up; forced the deputy to step away from the suspect; and then shot the suspect to death.

The CALL in Garland & Hot Spring Counties

Each day, across Arkansas, about 20 children come into foster care, through no fault of their own. Each one of those children needs a safe place to stay, where they can grow and prosper. But in Garland & Hot Spring Counties, there are not enough homes to care for those children. So children in foster care from our county end up being placed somewhere else in the state.

Imagine being one of those children. You’ve been removed from the home you were living in and now on top of that, you are in a totally new place, away from your friends and school. That’s a lot of added challenge.

The CALL in Garland & Hot Spring Counties exists to recruit, train and support families from the Christian community right here in our own county who will care for children in foster care. Keeping those children locally is a win for everybody.

The goal when a child comes into foster care is almost always reunification with the original family. Of course, it’s much easier to make that happen when everyone involved is still in the county.

If we had just one family from each of our churches step forward to foster and/or adopt, we could have enough foster homes! Right here in our county!

Actually, our goal is more than enough homes. So that when a child comes into foster care, they can be placed in the right home for their needs.

You can be part of the solution to the foster care crisis in Arkansas right here at home. Come to an Info Meeting to learn more or contact us today.

Tonya Ross, County Coordinator

Tonya became aware of the need for more foster families when she and her husband opened their home to become foster parents in 2013. Since that time they have fostered over 80 children of all ages. In 2016, she began to volunteer for The CALL as a trainer. After retiring from a career as an elementary teacher, she became the County Coordinator in 2021. As a foster parent for the last 8 years she knows first-hand the struggles of fostering and how great the need is for more homes. She has witnessed how God can bring beauty out of brokenness through reunification with birth families and adoption. She leads a dedicated team of volunteers in Garland and Hot Spring Counties to serve the needs of the community, DCFS staff, and wonderful foster and adoptive families.

 

She and her husband, Jerry, have been married for over 30 years and have 4 children. They enjoy spending time together as a family and are members of Hot Springs Baptist Church.

Garland County, AR Arrest Records

Garland County Mugshots

Garland County mugshots have been used since the 1800s, shortly after the invention of photography. Then in 1888, a French police officer Alphonse Bertillon standardized the process and made it the norm. Groups of these mugshots are kept in a “mug book” to help witnesses and victims identify criminals.

Garland county mugshots are the photographs taken of suspects upon arrest. Local police, Sheriff’s Offices, and other law enforcement agencies take them. Typically , the subject is photographed from the front (full-face view) and then the side (profile view). These Garland county mugshots are filed with the person’s criminal record and police reports. They are used by victims, witnesses, and investigators to identify criminals guys.

Additionally , when a judge issues an Garland county arrest warrant for other purposes , and the person does not show up in court, these mugshots are used to help find the suspect.

Mugshots are readily available online as they are public records. Information brokers portals offer mugshots with other types of public records such as criminal records, arrest records and other court cases.

Felonies, Misdemeanors, and Sex Offenders

Police and arrest records will also contain on felonies, misdemeanors, and sex offenders. Since everything is computerized available and connected, any past incidents will show up as well.

At the Oct. 4 virtual meeting of the Hot Springs/Garland County COVID-19 Task Force, representatives from CHI St. Vincent and National Park Medical Center said that along with the 35 COVID-positive patients, there were an additional nine who are being treated, but are beyond the 20-day mark since their diagnosis and are no longer in COVID isolation. 

The number of COVID cases in the county’s public school systems continued their decline through last week with representatives reporting a total of 18 cases, down from 24 a week ago.
