Missing teenager found

May 1, 2014 by Randy Keck

Parker County investigators have confirmed that a missing teen will soon be reunited with her family.

Hill County Sheriff’s Office contacted the Parker County Sheriff’s Office at 2:14 p.m. today in reference to runaway Abigail Rubio, who was reported missing one week ago.

Officials said Rubio approached a constable in Hill County, located southeast of Parker County.

Rubio is reported to be in good condition and appears well. Her family was notified and is on the way to pick her up.

Parker County investigators requested that Rubio be questioned by Hill County investigators regarding her disappearance. Investigators said foul play is not suspected at this time and believe Rubio left her home and school willingly. No further information will be released due to the young girl being a juvenile.

“We are pleased to discover she has been located and will be with her family soon,” said Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler.

CD release party for DeAnn Spence

April 21, 2014 by Phil Major

A CD release party for Aledo’s DeAnn Spence is planned Friday, April 25 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Parson’s Table in Aledo, 200 S. FM 1187.
This is the first solo album for the 1984 Aledo graduate, although she has recorded two previous CDs with the bluegrass band FullHouse.
They can be seen every fourth Sunday at the Parker County Cowboy Church.
DeAnn and Rick Spence reside in Aledo. They met in 1986, but their musical careers did not become a big part of their lives until about 2008.
“It’s About the Journey” features songs written by DeAnn and Rick, along with one penned by FullHouse guitarist Jared Kennedy, as well as some familiar gospel and country standards – all with a bluegrass flavor.
When they’re not playing, recording or writing, DeAnn is a transition specialist at Eastern Hills High School in Fort Wirth, and Rick is a salesman for wholesale retirement plans in a six-state area. He is also a former professional calf roper, putting aside that career about three years ago.

Looking for Cookies

March 31, 2014 by Randy Keck

Kathy Chruscielski/The Community NewsThe Cook of the Week mascot is gearing up for cookie runs for the Moritz Ride for Heroes on April 19.

The Ride for Heroes needs about 200 dozen cookies.

Home-baked are preferable, but bakery cookies are OK. No pre-packaged store-bought cookies, please. If possible, cookies should be bagged by the dozen. They can be dropped off at The Community News, 203 Pecan, Aledo or we can pick them up. Cookies should be ready the week of April 14, but no later than April 17. For questions or “Cookie Commitments,” call Loydale Schmid at The Community News - 817-441-7661.


Since its inception in 2003, the Moritz Ride for Heroes has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local first responders, law enforcement and school organizations.

Over those years traditions have developed that are unique to the local bike ride. One of those has been the rest stops, which have become not just places to get a breather, but areas where students and organizations provide entertainment and snacks. The rest stops are creatively decorated for the riders but also for the goal of winning the first place award. The Community News judges the rest stops, and the winning organization receives an additional cash prize from the ride.
