RIP Mike and Cynthia McLelland

Last night the Kaufman County DA Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia were murdered in their home.  This just a couple of months after Assistant DA Mark Haase was murdered on the streets of Kaufman.  This has got to stop.  Rest in peace, prayers go out to their families.

This is a picture from a candidate forum hosted by the Kaufman County Republican Party in January 2010 when Mr. McLelland first ran for County DA.

Fly over

About 6 military helicopters flew over Terrell yesterday afternoon.  I caught a couple near the rear of the pack. I think they were apache copters.

From the dentist chair

I had a cleaning at the dentist last week.  I hate going to the dentist, even for just a cleaning.

Andy Grammer headliner

Andy Grammer was the musical headliner after the Rock N Roll Half Marathon in Dallas.  I don't know if the crowd was thin because of the cold weather or because nobody knew who he was.  He sounded OK though.

You're out

I was able to catch just a little of the Tigers softball game against Forney Tuesday night.  The Lady Tigers didn't win the game, but they gave 100%.

DWI trailer

At Saturdays St. Patrick's Day Parade, the Dallas County Sheriff's Department had a DWI trailer. It was set up like a carnival game.  The purpose was to make people aware of what can happen when you are stopped for a DWI and how being under the influence can alter your reality.

Tiger drop first district game

The Tigers lost at home in front of a big crowd last night to Newman Smith 7-0.

Tomorrow is the Dash Down Greenville.  Its not so much as a race as it is a nice jog. I usually only jog anyway.  After the Dash is the annual St. Patricks Day parade.  Always fun to watch.

Terrell powerlifters visit the Lions Club

The Terrell Lions club honored the TISD powerlifting team yesterday at their weekly meeting. Both teams had a great year and the ladies, in their first year fielding a team, had two lifters quality for the state meet. Keko Mingo and Michaela Russell will represent the Tigers tomorrow at the state meet. The Lions Club also took donations and presented Coach Sandoval $200 to use towards the program.

Nothing like a nice healthy salad for dinner, right?  Minus anything red and except for the cheese croutons, fake bacon bits and a quart of dressingm I'd say this is healthy.
