Last Saturday, the Hood County News published an article about the exorbitant expense of prom.
Among those who weighed in was Jean Cate, interim executive director of Mission Granbury.
Cate gave her opinion, not as a spokesperson for Mission Granbury, but as someone who is concerned about the years-long practice of holding prom at the Arlington Convention Center and graduation ceremonies in Fort Worth.…
Navajo Code Talkers are AMERICAN heroes
Many thanks for those who made the Navajo Code Talkers available to local residents last Saturday at the Glen Rose Expo location.

I was trying on dresses for an event I was attending, and before I put the dresses on, I put on my Spanx.
Yes, I’m 31, I’ve had two children, and at times I wear Spanx.

Truly a gem and probably the best tourist attraction Granbury has to offer, and now I understand we are just about ready to lose it to Glen Rose.
