Help Feed-A-Hero on Christmas Day

December 18th, 2017 by
Jim Searles, founder of Feed-A-Hero, understands the very limited options available for food on Christmas day as a former first responder himself. Searles points out, “It’s not a fun day to work. If you didn’t go ahead and have someone cook you dinner beforehand, you pretty much were relished to a convenience store hot dog. And on Christmas, that just isn’t that great. It’s not that great on a regular day… let alone Christmas!” So in 2014 the Searles family decided to take dinner to a fire station in Denton and invited the police to stop by and grab some food there as wel

Aubrey High School Cross Country

September 30th, 2017 by
Your Cross Country Chaps competed yesterday with our season opener at Camp Copass in Denton. The non-traditional 3-mile course, complete with a mud pit obstacle, proved to be a great way to kick off the 2017 competitive season. Our Varsity boys fought hard to the finish for 4th place out of 22 teams and we had 2 individual medals as well. Senior Zach Brookmole finished in 15th place and Junior Joaquin Monroy finished in an impressive 4th place even after losing one of his shoes on the first mile. All of our athletes ran well yesterday and it’s going to be a great season for Aubrey Chaps

America Needs More True Leaders

September 30th, 2017 by
America is facing a critical need for more leaders – true leaders – prepared with the skills to deal with the problems of today and the challenges of tomorrow. We all know a true leader when we see one. They lead by example, work well with others, endure through challenges, and stick to a job until it gets done. However, many of America’s youth are not prepared with the skills they need to lead in the most fundamental areas of their lives today and their careers tomorrow. It is a serious problem now that will lead to a severe leadership void in the years to come, impacting communities ac

Packing a Healthy Lunch for a Healthy Student

September 30th, 2017 by
Packing a healthy lunch can help your kids succeed in school by making sure they get the nutrition they need to get throughout the day. Including the five food groups from MyPlate; proteins, vegetables, fruit, grains, and dairy, will help children get the nutrition they need for their brains and bodies to grow. Protein, which is generally considered meat, is important to help your children grow and develop strong muscles. Protein also helps a child feel full so that they won’t be distracted by hunger in the middle of class. Include meats that are low in fat, such as lean turkey or extra lean

Councilman Jeff Miller Opposes Tax Increase

September 9th, 2017 by
In my first major ​letter as an Aubrey city council member, I want to take the time to communicate my views on the proposed budget and tax rate for the fiscal year 2017-18. The budget has been the council’s primary focus for the last several weeks, and we’ll be voting on it very soon. Why have I waited this long to speak out? As a new council member, it has taken me quite a while to dig in and learn about the city’s budgeting procedures and the various statues which govern that process—and I’m still learning. As you might imagine, city budgeting is a relatively complicated undertak

Help Cleanup Efforts For Victims of Harvey

September 6th, 2017 by
“They didn’t wait for help. They became the help, and in so doing they inspired a nation.” This is the true embodiment of Texas culture. Coy Johnson, Aubrey resident, did just that. He went to help with evacuation and rescue efforts and he needs our assistance to continue helping with the devastation that has hit our southern neighbors. Here are his words: “Like most who watched the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, I prayed for those impacted and wanted to help them in some way. Watching the powerful images of volunteers arrive by the truckload to pull people from th
