Let the countdown begin

‘Best Bite’ marks Stroll success

The history of pairing wine with complementary food stretches back centuries. Epicureans long ago figured out that a light-bodied chardonnay, say, tastes better when accented with seafood, and vice versa. So organizers of Sherman’s Stroll on the Square weren’t exactly reinventing the wheel when they introduced a cooking competition as a tasty new wrinkle in the city’s annual wine tour for 2014.

‘Best Bite’ competition added to Sherman Stroll Friday night

Downtown Sherman Preservation and Revitalization’s annual Stroll on the Square event is slated for a major expansion this year, as organizers aim to attract a crowd Friday Night for one of Sherman’s most popular yearly events. In addition to the wine tasting stations that anchor the happening, ten local chefs are matching their talents in a competition for the best treat in Texoma.

Sherman readies for music-infused Arts Fest

There are times when living in North Texas has its disadvantages — looking your way here, July — but for much of the year, the weather makes Texoma a great place to call home. And Saturdays in September certainly fall in that second category. The Sherman Chamber of Commerce will commandeer the city’s Municipal Park for the annual Autumn Arts Fest this weekend, placing a particular emphasis on the musical arts for 2014.

Wyatt Earp coming to town

It’s a well-established bit of local lore that John Henry “Doc” Holliday practiced dentistry in Denison for a short time in 1874 while trying to duck Dallas gambling charges. Unfortunately for local historians, that was a good three years before Holliday met and began his subsequent association with famed lawman Wyatt Earp, meaning Tombstone’s most famous deputy town marshal never made a mark on Texoma.
