The night was cold before the early morning battle on the 6th March 1836. The men of the Alamo were enduring the start of their 13th day of siege. Constant artillery fire had not produced a single casualty.....it was a brisk night.

The Mexican Army was fanning out for a major attack in the pre-dawn hours. They vastly outnumbered the approximately 180 defenders. Strick orders were given and no rifles in the first wave were loaded....this would be a morning of the bayonet.

The main attack would be on the damaged north wall and much of the Mexican casualties were here from their own artillery as the troops cowered below the walls to get out of the defenders' line of fire.

Travis having run to the north wall was one of the first casualties, falling dead with a bullet in the forehead. The defenders were overcome by numbers and retreated to the Long Barracks next to the chapel which was defended by Crockett's Tennessee volunteers. The most brutal fighting occurred here...hand to hand in the dark. This is why this very spot was chosen by a previous generation for the placement of the Alamo Cenotaph, a monument to the extraordinary valor of the defenders...this is why you don't move it to fit some Feng Shui perspective of how a re imagined Alamo should look.

After the battle, the few survivors were executed, the many bodies burned and the walls of the mission fortress torn down. Only the scared chapel remained
One of Santa Anna's generals remarked, one more victory like this and we're finished.

When you get up tomorrow, on a cold morning let your mind drift back to that morning of 6 March 1836 - the final battle.

Remember the Alamo.

Let the old men tell the story, let the legend grow and grow. Of the thirteen days of glory, at the siege of Alamo.

On this day, the history of the world changed.

STAC Agent Billy Clardy III

EOW Dec 6th, 2019.

STAC Agent Billy Clardy III was a police officer for the Huntsville Police Department working as a drug agent as part of the HIDTA Gulf Coast Task Force on December 6, 2019. STAC Agents are part of the North Alabama Drug Task Force under HIDTA. During that drug investigation, STAC Agents set up a drug buy where a known offender was to drop off a large amount of drugs at a residence on Levert St. Upon arrival at the residence, STAC Agent Clardy was immediately shot by the offender on the porch. There was a short foot pursuit with other officers who were on a perimeter when the offender was eventually captured. STAC Agent Clardy died as a result of gunshot wounds he suffered outside the scope of his bulletproof vest.

Agent Clardy is survived by his wife and five kids. He is also the son of fallen Officer Billy Fred Clardy II, who died in the line of duty with the Huntsville Police Department May 3, 1978.

First and foremost, he was a beloved son, brother, husband, father and grandfather. He was a US Army Veteran. Also an exceptional police officer with many career accomplishments. He started his career working North Huntsville as a patrol officer. He quickly moved to become a Community Relations Officer for several years, became a part of the very first HPD Anti-Crime Team and then became a STAC Agent.

We thank everyone for reaching out with love and support. Please continue to pray for his family.

Services will be Tue Dec 10th at Mayfair Church of Christ 1095 Carl T Jones Dr Hsv Al 35802 Public Viewing 12-2P, service to follow.

OfficerMat Cox, our Deputy assigned to Acton Middle School as an SRO, had the opportunity to speak to the sixth grade boys today. He spoke about school security and how the students could help keep the school safe by being the eyes and ears of the school. He also spoke to the students about the misdemeanor and felony levels of offenses and explained what the fines and incarceration times could be. Officer Cox had a good time and it seemed like the students enjoyed having him as a guest speaker.

Rest in Peace little angel. Badge 758, we'll take the watch from here.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Abigail Arias, the child who became an officer, a change agent for good and today, an Angel.

Abigail, also known as Officer Arias 758, went to be with our Lord early this morning surrounded by her family and friends.

Her love, compassion, and most importantly, her magnanimous spirit, will live on for generations to come.

It’s both our duty and privilege to embody what Abigail taught us: to live life to the fullest, to never give up hope no matter the odds, to fight “the bad guys” passionately, and most importantly, to love one another - and always Stay Relentless!

I love you Abigail

Kali’s Law goes into effect on September 1, 2019. Texas boat operators will be required to wear an engine cutoff switch when operating a boat equipped with the switch, under 26ft in length and going greater than headway speed.

Headway speed is slow, idle speed, or speed only fast enough to maintain steerage on course.

This change in the law does not require the retrofitting of older boats that were not originally equipped with an engine cutoff switch however Texans are always encouraged to employ sound safety practices which can include the addition of such a safety device.

A STOPPED SCHOOL BUS: WHAT DO I DO?

Texas State law requires that drivers stop when a school bus is operating a visual signal-either red flashing lights or extended stop arm (TRC 545.066). However, many Texas drivers are uncertain as to when they need to stop for a school bus.

Here are a few guidelines to reduce driver confusion, thus providing a safer environment for our children. #BackToSchoolSafety
