In addition to Granger’s address, the luncheon honors the 2012-13 ZCPC scholarship recipients and will introduce the ZCPC Clubwoman of the Year for 2011-12.
“Rep. Granger is no stranger to us here in Weatherford,” said Linda Bagwell, ZCPC president. “She has served as a role model for many of us women here and beyond, actually, and is the perfect choice to keynote the most important of our Zonta lunches during the year. Our mission – to advance the status of women – has long been a charge for Rep. Granger, as well.”
“We certainly want to extend the invitation and open the doors wide for Parker County to come and get to know what Zonta of Parker County is all about,” Bagwell said. “ZCPC is an extraordinary club, and our members are those who understand not only the local but the global perspective, as well, of our responsibility to advance the status of women in whatever way we can.”

Randy Keck/The Community News: A motorcycle whose rider attempted to bypass traffic on FM5 Wednesday afternoon ended up under an Aledo ISD school bus that was making a turn onto Koldin Lane. No students on the bus were injured. The rider of the motorcycle suffered major injuries, but was reported to be conversant before being transported by ambulance.
Two Aledo ISD busses were involved in separate accidents while carrying children home from school today.
A school bus was rear ended on Front Street in Aledo and another, more serious accident involved a school bus being struck by a motorcycle driver who attempted to bypass traffic on FM5.
No children are reported to be injured, but the driver of the motorcycle slid under one of the busses and had two of his limbs almost completely severed in the crash.
He was taken to the hospital and parents were contacted to pick up their children from the scene of the accident.
More details will be posted as they become available.
