Greenville – Some Greenville homes are possibly in line for an extreme makeover.
Five local homeowners whose houses are way past their prime may be able to have the structures demolished and rebuilt, at no cost to them, if the City of Greenville receives grant funding.
The City Council Tuesday passed a resolution authorizing the submission of an application to the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) Home Investment Partnership Program, which provides funds for the reconstruction of single family homes.
Greenville – Three individuals were taken to Greenville hospital following a Wednesday car accident.
Two of the three involved a Greenville Police Department officer and the prisoner he was transporting. The accident occurred at the intersection of Wesley and Hillcrest Street shortly before 1 p.m. Wednesday.
Cooper – If you missed last week's annual SKYWARN storm spotter training program in Hunt County, you've got another opportunity tonight in Cooper.
SKYWARN, co-sponsored by the Hunt County Emergency Management Office, is free and open to the public and is designed to help train area law enforcement, firefighters and amateur radio personnel in how to spot the potential for severe thunderstorms and, once they arrive, how to track them. The program is expected to last about two hours.
Commerce – San Antonio smashes the Mavericks despite no Tim Duncan or Manu Ginobli; today marks 20 years of Dalls Cowboys ownership for Jerry Jones; the Texas Rangers play their first exhibition game today; and the A&M-Commerce Lions play their final home basketball games tonight as the Lions mark Senior Night, Greek Night, and Black History month.
Fire in Lone Oak displaces family of four; Meth bust in Campbell; Greenville PD report no racial profiling reports made in 2008 on any of its officers; Lamar County Crime Stoppers seek vandalism suspect.
Greenville – The Greenville City Council has received the City's racial profiling report, and the results are good.
Greenville Police did not receive a single complaint alleging racial profiling on the part of its officers during 2008. Police Chief Harold Roseberry presented the department's annual report concerning the item to the City Council Tuesday. It was the seventh straight year the department has presented the report and during that time only one, unfounded, complaint alleging racial profiling has been received.
Campbell – Arrests have been made in connection to an alleged meth lab in Campbell.
A joint investigation between both Hunt and Hopkins County Sheriff's offices alongside the Sulphur Springs Police Department resulted in the arrests Monday night of William Davidson, 34, his wife, Stacy Davidson, along with Ronald Moreland, 32, of Honey Grove. William Davidson and Moreland were charged with manufacture/delivery of between four and 200 grams of methamphetamine and Stacy Davidson with possession of between four and 200 grams.
Commerce – Scott Wells has been named the new Athletic Director/Head Football Coach for Commerce ISD; the Dallas Stars drop their second in a row as they are shut out by San Jose; Texas Tech head coach Pat Night is in hot water again with the Big 12; and A&M-Commerce men's basketball standout DeUndrae Spraggins has been named the LSC North Player of the Week after a 42 point night against East Central.
