The Aledo High School 2011 Homecoming Parade will have a new route this year that pulls it off of congested FM 1187 and closer to Aledo High School.
The route begins on the new Champions Drive where it intersects with Buchanan Drive. The route moves south, then turns west along the south side of the AHS student parking lot. The parade proceeds through the circular drive in front of the AHS gym, then continues west until parade participants enter Bearcat Stadium from at the southwest gate.
Marsha Barber, administrator at Trinity Christian Academy in Willow Park, announced on Monday, Sept. 19, 2011 that the school received an anonymous gift last week of $1.1 million.
The donation will be used to finish out the gymnasium at the school's new secondary building, on which construction is wrapping up. The additional work is hoped to be completed in time for this year's senior class to have an event in the facility, Barber told a group of parents and students.

From the Weatherford Police Department
On Saturday, 09/17/2011, just shortly after 7:30am, Weatherford Police Officers were dispatched to a local hotel in the 800blk of Palo Pinto St in regards to a disturbance. Upon arrival, officers found a white male, later identified as Shane Weston Cook (w/m 40yoa), in the process of damaging one of the hotel rooms. Officers found the room in severe disarray with windows broken, beds turned over and pictures torn off the wall. As they entered the room, the suspect had moved into the bathroom where he destroyed the toilet, plumbing fixtures and shower. It appeared that in the process of damaging these items, the suspect injured himself due to the large amounts of blood on him and around the hotel room.
