The Internet Is Back! Those of us who access the information superhighway via AT&T got our service back around 10:30 last night. I myself was forced to eat dinner last night with family. We had a fire in the fireplace, and we talked about how our days had gone. IT SUCKED! #gimmescreentime

Prosper Fights Highway Plans. Speaking of highways, TxDOT wants to build one through part of Prosper.

Gas Pipe Trial Comes to an End. A federal jury acquitted Jerry Schults and his daughter Amy Herrig of the most serious drug-trafficking charges against them for selling “spice” from their head shops. Schults and Herrig were, however, found guilty of one felony for misbranding the spice. They face up to five years in prison and will be sentenced later.
