Hobbs State Park Closes Shooting Range Until 2020 For Repairs, Improvements

ROGERS (KFSM) — The shooting range at Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area near Rogers is closing until 2020, the state announced Friday (July 26).

The shooting range will be closed for an estimated 9-12 months while repairs are made on the aging infrastructure, the state park announced. Upgrades and replacement of the infrastructure will take place on the public range while it remains closed.

State Parks staff and the Arkansas Game & Fish personnel are evaluating how to make the improvements and operational modifications. They’re looking into grants and other funding options, park officials said.

The three biggest projects will be:

  • Replace the Action Target Capture system: The clamshell piece into which visitors shoot is showing structural failure from aging and prolonged use
  • Pistol Use: The range was designed for rifles, and increased pistol use is creating potential hazards that must be addressed.
  • Staffing: The range is currently unmanned, but experts recommend using rangers or trained volunteers to monitor the usage and provide any needed assistance.

The management of the range will be evaluated for a more effective use of the public space, officials said. Almost $600,000 has been spent so far on the range’s construction, general maintenance, improvements and repairs to the range.

Woman survives boat explosion, raises awareness for Fourth of July boaters

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. — Boating out on one of Arkansas’ lakes is all fun and games until something tragic happens.

Tragedy became one Bauxite woman’s, reality on June 22 when the boat she stepped in exploded.

“It just blew up,” said Ashley Drysdale. “It rippled the water. You could feel the explosion in the water.”

Drysdale is miraculously recovering and healing from the freak accident that happened on Lake Catherine.

The boat caught fire while making its way off the dock, sending all 10 people inside, into the water, including several kids.

“We all got burned,” she said. “Me and my dad got the worst of it.”

Drysdale’s two babies made it out safely with no injuries, but for the mom herself, she ended up in Arkansas Children’s Hospital’s burn unit.

She got second degree burns covering 30% of her body. Her father received third degree burns on 30% of his body; ultimately needing skin graft surgery.

“I have them all the way up both legs,” said Drysdale. I have ugly hands, I’ve got singed hair. I have no eyelashes.”

It’s unclear what caused the boat’s explosion exactly, but Drysdale’s family believes fumes may have leaked into the boat’s hull, leaving them nowhere to go.

“Just be mindful,” she said.

Drysdale has no plans to spend Fourth of July on the water, but she’s pleading to others who are headed out to the lake this weekend.

“Just triple check, make sure everything is working correctly,” she said. Six people in total were injured on the boat.

Drysdale said her family lost about $30,000 worth of gear and equipment.

A GoFundMe account is set up to help support the Drysdale family during recovery.

Counties included:  Carroll, Crawford, Franklin, Johnson, LeFlore (OK), Logan, Madison, Sebastian, Sequoyah (OK), and Scott

THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE THE METRO AREAS OF NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.

There is enough rotation in the atmosphere to spin thunderstorms which means tornadoes are possible this afternoon.  Heavy rain and lightning are also expected, making flash flooding a major concern throughout Wednesday.

Lightning Strike, Mysterious Pressure Loss Take Out Ozone’s Water Twice In 24 Hours; Boil Order Issued

OZONE (KFSM) — The town of Ozone has been placed under a boil order until further notice, according to the Arkansas Department of Health and the Horsehead Water Association.

The small Johnson County town was without water for the second time Wednesday after a lightning strike caused a leak and loss of pressure about 10 p.m. Tuesday night, according to Misti Criss, office clerk with Horsehead, which serves Ozone.

Criss said crews were out repairing the first leak until 7 a.m. this morning, when water was restored to the town. But a couple of hours later, they started getting phone calls that water was out for the second time in Ozone.

“They don’t know if it’s the first leak or a new leak or something else,” Criss said. But it led to a loss of water pressure and the town being without water for the second time in 24 hours.

She said crews were inspecting the lines and trying to find and repair the problem. They’re working to get the system back online as soon as possible, Criss said, but the town will remain under a boil order.

The boil order was announced by the Arkansas Department of Health in response to the loss of water pressure, which could allow untreated water to flow into the system.

“All affected customers are advised that the water may be unsafe for human consumption,” the notice read.

Residents are urged to boil water briskly for one minute prior to use. All ice cubes should be discarded and only boiled water should be used to make ice.

The health department said the boil order would be lifted when two sets of bacteriological samples indicate the water is free of contamination and that adequate disinfectant levels are established throughout the system.
