    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.

GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- A burn ban was voted into immediate effect Tuesday for Grayson County.

The Grayson County Commissioners Court say they used the Keetch-Byram Drought Index to enforce the ban.      

Under county policy states they consider a burn ban if the index tops 600. Tuesday morning, the index was at 631.

The index is projected to rise to 684 over the next two weeks.      

As of Tuesday, no outdoor burning is allowed in Grayson County until further notice.

The court will reconsider the ban at next Tuesday's meeting.

"We have a policy that we will reconsider every Tuesday, as opposed to ordering it for 90 days," said Sarah Sommers. "That way we hope our public can better manage their needs for outdoor burning. We will reconsider it next Tuesday."

It's the first time in the calendar year, a ban has been considered for Grayson County.
