The Plaza Hotel in Pine Bluff, Arkansas offers 8 conference spaces, 2 bars,a restaurant and over 150 rooms. It is also connected to the Pine Bluff convention center. That alone should bring the hotel great business, but the hotel itself has been inhospitable for many years.

This leaves many to wonder if the hotel plans to “Go Forward” with the PIne bluff movement or if it will remain vacant. McCorvey, the director of Pine Bluff Convention center believes that this contributes to why the convention center is rarely booked. Chief Inspector, Evelyn Horton , said the department plans to do an assessment within the next two weeks.

With the upcoming assessment and the voices of the people we can only hope that this will motivate the owner to invest into renovating the property.

85219Justice is served for the family of Korryn Gaines. In 2016 Gaines was killed by police after they illegally entered her home. A standoff which lasted for 6 hours ended with Gaines losing her life and her infant son (whom was in her arms at the time of the incident) being injured.

32 million will be given to Kodi Gaines, the son who was injured. His sister, Karsyn will receive 4.5 million. Gaines father is to receive 300,000 and her mother will get 307,000. The remaining 300,000 will go to the estate.

So many cases like this are swept under the rug. Although we know this will not bring Korryn back, its good to know that the courts acknowledge this as unacceptable behavior.
