Officers nab Facebook drug peddlers

Facebook

If you are going to sell illegal narcotics, advertising it on Facebook is probably not the smartest move, because you never know who may be checking on your profile.

Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks said a special operation was conducted by the Sheriff’s Office narcotics unit Tuesday afternoon, which resulted in the arrest of three individuals who were each charged with delivery of a dangerous drug.

Kristofferson: Smiling at 77

Kris Kristofferson will play in Greenville Oct. 12. The show at the Dairy Manor will benefit restoration efforts for the Texan Theater.
NPR

Kris Kristofferson, the man who lived a dozen different lives before the age that most men are settling into one, isn’t done. He’s got at least one more role to play on this earthly stage. At 77, Kristofferson has become the thankful one.

I got lucky, I got everything I wanted

I got happy, there was nothing else to do

And I'd be crazy not to wonder if I'm worthy

Of the part I play in this dream that's coming true
