For many years I have been so thankful for the judicial authority in Granbury. Well I suppose all good things must come to an end.

Should state lawmakers toughen Dram Shop Act?

September 13, 2014

Granbury teacher Brenda Hardin is likely breathing a sigh of relief over a gaping hole in Texas laws pertaining to underage drinking.

Hardin and her daughter, Shelbi, were sued by Joe and Connie Urbanovsky for $1 million, but the suit was dropped last week.

In June 2012, the Urbanovskys’ 19-year-old son, Luke, was killed in a car crash minutes after leaving an underage drinking party at the Hardin home in Pecan Plantation.

Letter to the Editor

September 6, 2014

Recent columns in the Hood County News have inspired me to speak up and pose to the citizens of Granbury whether or not we should remain silent regarding the persistence of cynical comments made in this newspaper directed towards our elected City Council.

In the article “Council Wish List Could Create Perfect Storm,” comments were made regarding a list of 42 requests submitted by the City Council for improvements within the city.

We got your back, Briggs

Tuesday’s Granbury volleyball game was designated a “Team Briggs” night, as was Friday’s football game at Granbury. Briggs, a senior at Granbury High School, had a bone marrow transplant in February to help him combat an immune deficiency. Every player and coach, including those on the opposing team, wore “Team Briggs” shirts.

The plane had to be diverted to Chicago after two passengers – a 47-year-old man and a 48-year-old woman – got into a heated argument. The woman tossed a glass of water in the man’s face.
