Whisky Outlaws

The band Whisky Outlaws was created by Corey Reagin and Thaddeus Morton. Their band fuses the more polished and clean-cut sound of the mainstream country artists of the 1990s with the sounds and influences of red dirt country (bands like Turnpike Troubadours and Jason Boland and the Stragglers). (Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson)

 

In 2019, shortly after moving to Joplin from various regions of the nation—Corey from South Carolina and Thaddeus from Montana—Corey and Thaddeus met. Whisky Outlaws was formed within two months after the band members first met at Joplin, Missouri's Palen Music Center. With the addition of father-son rhythm section David and Joe Ebbs, the guys' four-piece band was completed

How Memorial Park Came to Be


The City was awarded a Design Excellence Grant up to $300,000 for the design of the park by the Walton Family Foundation in October 2016. 
CARBO landscape architectural firm out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana is the firm awarded the contract for the Design Excellence grant from the Walton Family Foundation. A Request for proposals was published November 2016 and the firm was officially approved by the Siloam Springs Board of Directors Tuesday, March 7, 2017. 

On November 21, 2017, plans for the (previously known as) Medical Springs Park Final Design were presented to the Board of Directors. The total estimated cost at this meeting was around $3,400,000. The plans were based on 50% drawings, and the estimated cost did not include the additional costs in design fees, the furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FFE), bike racks, limestone block, or pre-construction fees. These additional costs would have increased the original estimate to $3,660,000.

Construction of the park began May 26, 2018.
