Reporter

I’m Cindy Roller for KETR News, corresponding for Delta County and am also the Editor for the Cooper Review. While radio broadcasting is still a learning experience for me, I enjoy it as well as all aspects of print media from writing, photography, page design to seeing the smiles of readers when I deliver the newspapers.

Moving from Editor of The Twin Cities News in West Texas, I got my start in Northeast Texas as the Sports Writer/Photographer for the Sulphur Springs News-Telegram before finding my way back to a weekly paper, the Cooper Review. However, I am still most known as the tall red head on the sidelines covering football games.

Along with news, I hope KETR listeners find joy my special audio features as much as I do creating them because everyone has a story.

As always, I look forward to hearing from you!

The Cooper High football team's journey through the playoffs continues Saturday, with a matchup against area opponent Leonard still scheduled for Saturday despite the icy weather in store for North Texas.

Cooper claimed a new level of playoff success with a 56-18 victory over Scurry-Rosser in Royse City last week to add another shiny gold football to the trophy case. The Bulldogs will be playing the 10-3 Leonard Tigers on Saturday at 2 p.m. at Wylie Stadium in Wylie for the quarterfinal title.

“I am truly blessed this Thanksgiving,” said Amy Phillips on her life-changing event. “He [Luke Phillips] was admitted to Children’s Hospital in Dallas and prepared for surgery.”

Disc golf course now open in Sulphur Springs

Cindy Roller KETR/Cooper Review

The full 18-hole Disc Golf Course has officially arrived at Coleman Park in Sulphur Springs.

As KETR’s Cooper Welch previously reported, Todd McCoy, a high school math teacher at Sulphur Springs High School, played a game very similar to disc golf when attending Texas A&M University-Commerce. The sport was called "Campus Golf", and involved throwing Frisbees at campus locations in as few throws as possible. While playing this game he heard of disc golf, and ever since he's been hooked.

Election Identification Certificates available in Delta County

Per new legislation all voters must present photo identification. However, the State has invested funds to ensure this will not lessen votes cast.

Since Delta County does not have a Department of Public Safety office that issues identification, Delta County Judge Herb Brookshire has taken the steps to provide temporary voter identification cards at the Courthouse.

These Election Identification Certificates (EIC) will be issued to Texans who do not already have an acceptable form of photo identification necessary to vote.

Applications being accepted for Hopkins County Judge

hopkinscountytx.org

Hopkins County commissioners approved a plan this week to replace County Judge Chris Brown, who will be leaving the top county post in January to take over the Ark-Tex Council of Governments.

Brown had one year left on his county judge term. The plan is for the court to accept applications from interested persons and basically hire a replacement on a one-year contract, with next fall’s election determining a long-term answer.

Interested persons should submit a resume and cover letter for the current term for county judge, which is expected to be Jan 2nd – Dec 31st 2014.
