Parks buzzing with activity

Dear Citizens of Granbury,

A big thank you to the Granbury City Council and all of our citizens for being so generous in your support of the city’s park and recreational facilities.

This Is Hood County

Team Briggs

The community mourned as the news spread of the passing of Granbury High School senior Briggs Berry last Saturday morning. A huge crowd turned out for a candlelight vigil Sunday evening at the high school. Green balloons with messages about Berry were released into the night sky. The community, schoolmates, pro athletes and celebrities rallied to support Briggs and his long battle against an immune deficiency condition.

Ah, the best-laid plans…

September 20, 2014

Seemed like a good plan.

A P.E. teacher was having trouble getting her swarm of kindergartners to follow directions.

Now it was time for the teacher to set up “stations.” The lesson plan called for students to go to the first station, then the second, the third and so on.

It wouldn’t be easy.

City Council actions questionable

September 20, 2014

The level of leadership – and some of the decisions that have been made or which are hanging in the balance – could have a significant impact on the city’s future.

This week, the city attorney moved to prevent a violation of the Open Meetings Act by one of the council members.

Sad example for youth

Cheers to Shannon Teal for her letter, “Is This Justice?”

I wanted to speak out, but I just could not and still can’t find the words to express how this could be with the alcohol and drug problem we have in our schools and county.

To think that anyone in the position of our Juvenile Probation office was under the influence of alcohol and received a DWI and allowed to stay in that office is just unthinkable regardless of who it happens to be.

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.

Not hard to make coffee, right?!

Some of you have been loyal readers for several years, and some of you are just reading this because it’s here and you just happen to have the paper in your hands. (Either way, thanks for reading!)

For those who remember some of my earlier columns, you might recall when I was doing my laundry for a few months using fabric softener instead of detergent.

Produce plot plundered

September 13, 2014

It’s been said, although I don’t totally agree, “There’s no such thing as bad publicity.”

There is, however, such a thing as good publicity gone bad.

In June I wrote a story for our Prime publication about two community gardens in Granbury.

The idea was to promote the gardens and encourage people to take advantage of the free plots to plant their produce.
