Few things of interest from this week's Glen Rose Reporter newspaper

16 June 2007 at 9:05:31 AM

I love weekly newspapers; I used to work for a local community newspaper near Houston and enjoy the fact that these types of papers are TRULY local and most of the time actually owned by a local person. That's the case with the Glen Rose Reporter. Lots of interesting stuff in this week's June 14, 2007's issue.

County wants to get rid of the low water dip after drowning.

Gas Processing Plant proposed construction by Quicksilver/Cowtown

Glen Rose City Council selected  people for the 4-B Tax Group- Bruce, Bryant, Miller, Roffino, Villa and Wilson. Will be interesting to see what projects are picked for use of the 4-B Sales tax. My understanding is that once the tax itself is voted in, the citizenry no longer has input, aside from speaking up at city meetings, on what the money goes for-the board makes those decisions.

For safety reasons, I'm sure, after the drowning of Courtney Butler, Big Rock Park has hours of access and IF the water is high, violators will be fined.

Obituaries for Cassie Herring of Lipan, Mary Ellen Nichols Webb of Burleson, Ralph Earl Busby of Hico, James Austin Killingsworth of OK, and Earl Flanary of Rainbow. Rest in peace. (Incidentally, there is a terrific article about Killingsworth in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

As rain fell and thunder rumbled outside, Killer stories bounced off the walls Friday morning in the tiny sanctuary of the First Methodist Church in Glen Rose. Seemed as if everyone had at least one.

There might have been 200 of us there, including enough former TCU players from Killingsworth's eight years at the Horned Frogs' helm to start a pretty good pickup game. Darrell Browder was there, and Dennis Nutt, and Carven Holcombe and maybe a dozen others from TCU's "glory years" in the mid-'80s.

Former assistant Charlie Fenske had them all stand up and told us what we already knew: "These guys," he said, passion ringing in his voice, "are winners." I halfway expected current TCU basketball coach Neil Dougherty to jump from his seat and ask if any of them had eligibility left.

TCU happily would have held the service at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum, and maybe a thousand or more would have shown up to pay their respects, but this was the way Killer wanted it. Right here, in the same church where he'd said goodbye to Margaret, with the same minister preaching, and the same soloist singing Amazing Grace.

It was better this way, just as Killer had known it would be. A collection of family and friends, laughing and crying together, sharing their favorite memories of a man none of them will ever forget.

The Fourth of July parade will be downtown Glen Rose on ... July 4th and starts at 9:30 am. I see that people can not only register to be in the parade but get booths for the square afterwards.
