We have been well recieved in most of the south and love coming to the states but would hate for Texarkana to spoil it. If there was something in particular you wanted to do in Texarkana , I wouldn't let one or 2 posts dissuade you. You can run into rude people anywhere, and it could also be the frame of mind the original poster was in. When you're dealing with a lot of stress like that, you tend to be a little touchier about even the smallest of things. The original poster didn't even give specifics about what had happened.
Not sure where you're route is taking you, but if you truly don't want to go to Texarkana, consider another town. Hot Springs is on way between Texarkana and Little Rock. It has made several of the top ten lists of towns lists seen in different magazines and internet travel articles in this nation to visit.
Eureka Springs is another nice town in northern part of state though that gets good reviews. Thanks for that.

I've been coming to this dealership for about a year now ever since moving back to South Arkansas. I've been to dozens of dealerships across the country and this one isn't even the closest one to me but I choose to come to this one for many reasons. Yesterday I had my bike in to get 2 new tires and a 10k mile service.
During them taking my rear tire off they accidentally scratched up my rim Not only did he show me what had happened and was up front and honest but they also took care of me on it and made it right. A lot of places wouldn't have said anything and just went on about their business. The actual assaults happened to four couples between Feb. Of the eight victims, five died of gunshots wounds, and three survived being shot or beaten.
The lasting historical impact and legacy of these events, for Texarkana, are evidenced by the national and international attention the crimes drew—and continue to draw. Around May , a British television crew from London came through Texarkana with a piano that once belonged to the late ex-Beatle John Lennon. The crew conducted a nationwide tour in a memorial tribute to different sites where "senseless killings" took place.
One of the places they stopped included a spot off North Park Road in Texarkana,Texas, where law officers found one of the Phantom Killer's victims. A piano-playing session took place there for about an hour. Around that same time, a Discovery Channel film crew visited Texarkana to make a documentary about the slayings. Though today is the 70th anniversary of the mysterious killer's first fatal attack, the first attack was actually a disturbing and somewhat sadistic aggravated assault on a young couple which occurred around p. This assault would eventually be attributed to the Phantom Killer and provided the lead-in and ramp-up to the more elevated fatal crimes committed against three other couples in the months to follow.
Earlier on that late winter night in the assault victims, James B. According to a page statement on the attack by Hollis, they parked about 50 feet off Richmond Road on an secluded, unpaved lane about yards from the last row of city houses belonging to the relatively new Beverly residential neighborhood. This site appears to be off what is now the block of Richmond Road near Stevenson Street—an area that still looks relatively secluded.
Larey recalled that evening in an interview she gave three months after the attack, in the May 10, , issue of the Texarkana Gazette. He pointed a flashlight and pistol at us. He came up on the driver's side of the car and told Jimmy something like this: 'I don't want to kill you, fellow, so do what I say. The man then told Jimmy, 'Take off your expletive deleted britches,'" Larey continued.
The noise was so loud I thought Jimmy had been shot. I learned later that the sound was his skull cracking. Hollis' written account, which until recently remained unpublished, further stated the assailant knocked him unconscious, fracturing his skull in three places.

Then he hit me, I thought, with a piece of iron pipe and knocked me to the ground, but I managed to get up. The assailant then told her to run, and she first headed for a ditch, but he told her to go down the road, where she spotted another car, according to the article. After fleeing westward for a short time, Larey said she saw an older-model car parked on Richmond Road facing in the direction of their car. Hoping someone was inside that car, she looked inside, but found no one. She started running again, but she said her high-heeled shoes made sprinting difficult.
The suspect hit her again, causing her to fall once more to the ground, and at that point, Larey said, the masked suspect didn't rape her, but "abused her terribly," according to the article. News reports of that time didn't specify the nature of this abuse, but later police reports would indicate that the suspect used his gun barrel to sexually assault her. The suspect eventually left Larey as Hollis managed to get up off the ground, stumble to Richmond Road and stop a passing motorist.
Larey said she continued to run apparently continuing westward for what she estimated to be half a mile to a house because she thought her attacker was chasing her and because she needed to get help for Hollis. Hollis' account states that Larey eventually fled west to a home in the block of Blanton Street, to summon help after an approaching car apparently forced the assailant to retreat from the area.
