Terrell, Texas Monday Morning Mashup

Today's shot is from the rodeo Saturday night in Wills Point, TX. It was fun, but got dark pretty quick. A small rodeo album from Saturday night is up on the Facebook page. Have you hit the "like" button yet?

Huge Terrell Tigers news broke Saturday, Jherrod Stiggers will play basketball at the University of Houston. Below is a shot of Jherrod from last year. I noticed its the same picture on the link, no big deal though. Jherrod also stars on the varsity football team.

Yesterday Brian and I ran a 5K race at Norbuck Park in Dallas. I was disappointed with my time, over 2 minutes slower that my previous race. I finished in 37:13 and in 659th place. The race started at 7:45 but it was still hot. Guess that's why its called Too Hot to Handle. We have haven't decided what the next race will be.

The meteorologists at KDFW Fox 4 in Dallas have been questioning the temperature gauge in Terrell. It seems Terrell's temperature has been reading the hottest in the area and in some cases the hottest in the State. Fox 4 tells us the National Weather Service said the gauge is working properly, it's just HOT.

I must have missed this while on vacation. The State of Texas is facing a budget shortfall. For a time is seemed the State Hospital in Terrell wouldn't lose any beds in budget cuts, but I found this last night. It looks like the state may eliminate 183 beds over 5 hospitals. Hopefully, I am reading it wrong and Terrell will not lose any beds or jobs.

Join us in Terrell this Saturday on the 24th for the Terrell Photo Walk. Register by following the link on the right. Brian has more information.
