TEXARKANA! Tonight is a BIG NIGHT in our community. Tonight, Liberty-Eylau High School will face off with Pleasant Grove in a best of three series for Regional Finals baseball. How amazing that there are only eight teams left standing in the entire state, and TWO of them are right here in our town? We are SO proud! To top the whole thing off, the series is being held right here in Texarkana, with Game 1 starting at 7pm at Texas High.

Here's wishing both teams the very best of luck, and safety for all involved. Texarkana is very proud to say we are home to some of the very best high school baseball in the entire state of Texas.

Several streets are flooded - including some that we don’t normally have problems. This is W. 7th at Robison Road (and it appears to be getting deeper).

We answered 33 rain related calls overnight where people had to be helped out of a bad situation. Don’t be number 34. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Hats off to Christus-St. Michael in Texarkana, TX for the Covid Vaccine Clinic this weekend. It was a well oil-welled machine with all the logistics in place including traffic, parking, check-in, getting the shot and TOTAL hospitality to the end. So proud T-Town is a hub now.
While the city has gone beyond measure during the snow storm, TWU continues to be a problem with billing. We are getting charged for irrigation when the system has been turned off by TWU since November.

I don't know who the genius was that decided that starting a road work project at the intersection of McKnight Rd and Pleasant Grove Rd at 7:30 AM on a School day (school starts at 7:45) didn't think it through. Traffic was backed up and there was total chaos trying to get kids to school and the workers were clueless that they were the cause of the problem...
