Dallas PD DWI Effort Nets 118 Arrests


The Dallas Police Department made 118 DWI arrests March 4-21 as part of its Spring Break Impaired Driving Mobilization grant program.

During such waves, the department devotes additional resources to looking for DWI violators. Also, during the no-refusal DWI initiative, officers secure search warrants for a blood samples from all those arrested for DWI who refused to voluntarily give a breath and/or blood sample. 

Shaving Face Might Make Some Sense


Several years ago I learned that women actually shave their faces to exfoliate. It made me stop and think, yes, that makes a lot of sense!

I still find myself pondering the whole concept. The professional equivalent of a razor, and actually a much better alternative for women’s skin, is a Dermaplane. Razors are suitable for a man’s skin, but a razor’s edge is much thicker than a Dermaplane blade. Dermaplane physically exfoliates, similar to microdermabrasion, but with a blade like a thin, flat scalpel.

The blade is scraped against the skin in short upward strokes in a certain pattern, depending on the part of the face. Unlike Microderm, it is not done on the nose, just the forehead, cheek, and chin areas (the places you grow facial hair.)

Flag for Hope director of operations Don Goff this spring presented the Dallas Police Department with a replica of the Flag for Hope, a project to promote unity, honor and peace.

On the actual Flag of Hope, the blue field and red and white stripes were formed from the hand and finger impressions from more than 3,700 Americans, including Dallas Assistant Chief Christina Smith who made the final hand print on the 9-by 5-foot canvas.

Tuesday’s Class 5A Region II quarterfinal meant more than the average matchup between neighborhood rivals Hillcrest and Thomas Jefferson, and it showed.

The Patriots won an intense thriller 3-2 at Franklin Stadium to advance to the regional semifinals on Friday against perennial power Frisco Wakeland.

TJ and Hillcrest split their two regular-season matchups in District 11-5A, both decided by one goal. The third meeting again proved just how closely matched they are.

Edson Miranda, Cesar Erazo Escobar, and Kevin Chavez supplied the goals for the Patriots (12-8-1). Yaya Dosso scored both goals for the Panthers (19-5) to finish with 32 for the season and five in the playoffs.

On May 1, Stern will compete against some 60 or so other devotees of the Bard at the Lincoln Center Mitzi Newhouse Theater.

Rangers Advance to Regional Semifinals

Jesuit goals

GARLAND — If soccer games were decided by time of possession, Jesuit would have been eliminated from the Class 6A Region II playoffs on Tuesday.

But instead, despite an extended late flurry of scoring opportunities by Mesquite, the opportunistic Rangers used a pair of early goals and a stellar defensive effort to earn a 2-0 win at Homer B. Johnson Stadium.

The regional quarterfinal victory means Jesuit will advance to play Round Rock Stony Point at 6 p.m. Friday at the Reeves Athletic Complex in Austin. The regional final would be at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Park Cities Presbyterian Church Welcomes You to Holy Week


Come participate in the Lord’s passion and celebrate His resurrection with us!

April 9-16

“I call on Your name, O LORD, from the depths of the pit.” —Lamentations 3:55

The book of Lamentations gives voice to the depth of sorrow God’s people felt over the destruction of their homeland. It is a raw expression of love, loss, anguish, and hope. The liturgy of Holy Week beckons us to this same range of emotional honesty. We will hear the voice of Jesus crying out for us and gain confidence that the God to whom we pray shares our tears. And as we awaken on Easter to the good news that Jesus is risen, we will remember that in our lament lies this unwavering hope: “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies are new every morning” (Lamentations 3:22-23).
