    Slow Start For Ardmore Band As Director Search Continues

    ARDMORE, OK -- For band students, the last few weeks for summer are reserved for rehearsals to gear up for the fall marching band season. But one Texoma marching band has yet to hit the field and it has some people in the community concerned. As the calendar flips closer to August, marching bands across Texoma turn parking lots into football fields to practice. But instead of the sounds of a band rehearsal in front of Noble Stadium in Ardmore it's dead silent. "There's a little bit of a conce...More >>

SHERMAN -- Cheryl Haynes says she never saw it coming.

With tears in her eyes, she was handed a check for $25,000 outside the Sherman warehouse where she works.

"It's just an answer to prayer," she said. "You don't know how much this means to me. I really appreciate it."

Haynes' name was pulled in a grand prize drawing held by Neighborhood Credit Union. The Dallas-based business gives out prizes to customers as an incentive to save money in a savings account with the credit union.

"In this particular economy, you've got to make sure you've got your rainy day fund," Carolyn Jordan with Neighborhood Credit Union said.

A crew with the credit union films each surprise and came to Sherman to make the delivery in person.

Since there are no branches in the Texoma area, Jordan says it's a reward for long-distance loyalty.

"We hope she's going to be excited. I think she's going to be excited, and I think she will be very, very pleased," Jordan said.

While each winner is aware they've won a prize, Jordan says how much the check is worth is a secret.

The $25,000 couldn't have come at a better time for Haynes. Recently, she says she was forced to dip into her savings to pay off a pile of debt that until now had her on the verge of losing her home.
