Last week after writing a column about former Denison Mayor W.S. Hibbard , I began looking for a photograph that I knew I had and had used with the earlier column explaining that the finder was trying to learn about the man to whom the dog tags he found belonged too. I couldn’t find the picture.

On Tuesday, Grayson County Commissioner Jeff Whitmire called out Texoma Council of Governments Executive Director Susan Thomas and Board President Keith Clegg for what Whitmire said was an attempt to hide grievances filed against Thomas by former TCOG Finance Director Stacee Sloan-Caskey, known at TCOG as Stacee Sloan.
