    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, TX --  Zoning is already approved for a new transitional living facility. Now, that issue will go before Sherman City Council tonight.

The House of Eli would be located in the 100 block of S. Ricketts St.

Nine young men would be housed there, with some coming from incarceration and others "aging out" of foster care.

Last month, we talked to the director who says they want to provide the boys with a structured and nurturing environment.    
    
"They're only going to be here a year, and then we're going to have new kids rotating in and out, so we need every minute with them, to do all the re-training that we know they need to change the direction of their lives," says executive director Tawni Hodge.

The project is funded by private donations, and they hope to have the house open by the end of the year.

Also during the meeting, council will consider an express car wash that would be located on a strip of land in the 4300 block of north Highway 75, near the southbound exit from 75 to Sherman Town Center.
