Mike Brooks was born in Hot Springs and has lived here and raised his family since 1990. His family roots are planted deep in Garland County with his mother’s family settling here in the mid 1860′s, and father’s family in 1880′s. Brooks is a self-proclaimed devotee of Arkansas and Garland County history. “A large part of the area’s rich heritage is a result of the arts and entertainment available here. One of my goals is to carry on that rich heritage by featuring the local resources and history, which will hopefully inspire others to carry on the lore that has followed the “Valley of the Vapors” throughout its rich history.”
Todd Cragg is a native of Benton, Arkansas, but graduated from Fountain Lake High School. “We were at the end of the FL District so I attended FL giving me a distinct advantage in life experiences to be split between two great counties and towns”. After graduation, he enlisted in the military and stayed until 2002 with 25 years as Military Director of Human Resources. He went into business for himself a few years and was a part-time elementary teacher. He was employed by National Park Community College as the Campus Store (Bookstore) Manager in 2005 and also serves as an Adjunct Instructor. He completed his Master’s Degree with the University of Arkansas in Operations Management with other degrees in Human Resources and Resource Technology. “I have been an avid sports fan my entire life and have been a sports official for over 30 years. As an official, I enjoy educating the fans, parents, players, and coaches in sports officiating and prefer youth programs through high school.” Additionally, he instructs a ‘Sports Officiating’ course at NPCC and can be found on local radio talking sports or calling play-by-play action. “Youth sports is much more than win-lose….and officiating is much more than balls and strikes. Hot Springs, Garland county and surrounding communities provides a mecca of opportunities for the enjoyment of sporting activities from T-ball to Senior Olympics.” Todd lives in Hot Springs with his wife, a 2nd-grade teacher at FL, his youngest child at HSU, and grandsons popping in for pop cakes.
