Severe weather expected on Friday

By Kenny Mitchell

Publisher

A very active couple of days of weather will come through Texas on Thursday and Friday, and is forecasted to impact us here in Northeast Texas around midday on Friday.

The front is expected to bring damaging winds, large hail, severe thunderstorms and a slight chance of tornadic activity.

Forecasters say our area and portions of the state west and south of Bowie County will have the best chance to see these storms by early afternoon on Friday and into the evening hours.

Heavy localized rain and flooding could also be a concern, if the front slows before moving into Arkansas and on into the southeast.

Lady Hornets still #1 in TGCA poll

By Kenny Mitchell

Publisher

Despite a loss to New Boston a little over a week ago, the Hooks Lady Hornets stay atop of the Texas Girls Coaches Association state softball rankings, that were released this morning.

The #1 ranking for Coach Neal Kiser and the Lady Hornets was bolstered by big wins over Redwater and Queen City since that loss, including the 5-3 win over the Lady Dragons on Thursday.

In the new rankings, Queen City dropped all the way down to #20 and the New Boston Lady Lions stayed in their previous spot at #18, despite the win over Hooks, followed by wins over DeKalb and Daingerfield, tempered perhaps by a 1-0 loss to Hughes Springs.

Hughes Springs is now ranked at #4 in the state polls.
