New railings are being installed at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington following the tragic death of Brownwood firefighter Shannon Stone, who tragically fell from the stands in July of last year.
ESPN.com reports that pieces of the new railing have already been installed in the outfield, and are a different design than the ones previously featured at the ballpark. According to the website, the new rails are taller, thinner and more difficult to lean over due to a flat top that juts in toward the stands. According to ESPN.com, the ball club said the entire park will have the new railings by Opening Day at a cost of approximately $1.1 million.
Did you hear about the Aggie who was caught counterfeiting currency? He was caught erasing the zeroes off of $20 bills!
Counterfeit money is coin or currency that is produced outside the province of the government to resemble some official form of money closely enough that it may be confused for genuine money. Producing or using counterfeit money is a form of fraud. We read about store clerks who are handed counterfeit bills, even in Brownwood! These are federal offenses, and for some reason, the defense of our printed and coined money falls under the jurisdiction of the Secret Service.
For the coin or currency collector, there are two categories of counterfeits. The more egregious these days are those who manufacture to defraud for the purposes of ill-gotten gain. This would be someone who uses a fancy printer and computer to make up some of his own cash. Another example of this is the Chinese. Reporters have been to factories in China where they manufacture many rare date coins for the express purpose of ripping people off. If I knew that a brand-spanking-new looking 1916 D Mercury dime is worth $15,000, why I would spend $20 on 5 or 6 of them from China? Dealers are careful not to sell these, but folks who work flea markets and garage sales, or plain old crooks, are not.

High Plains Mallard Management Unit: Outfitters reported fair to good hunts for ducks on playa lakes and feed lots. Ducks have congregated on warmer feed lot ponds with freezing temperatures. Goose hunting has been good over wheat and plow ground. Snow the past few weeks has encouraged Canadas to feed and lose some of their late-season wariness. Larger Canadas have shown recently with freezing temperatures to the north. Snow geese have cooperated at times, mostly with stiff winds and a low ceiling.

The Brownwood/Brown County Health Department made the following announcement Wednesday.
In response to cuts in funding for vaccines and immunization programs, both on the federal and state level, the Department of State Health Services has made policy changes to both the Texas Vaccines for Children and Adult Safety Net immunization programs. The changes are as follows:
Adult Safety Net (ASN):
1. Through January 31, 2012 the meningococcal vaccine (MCV4) will be available to any adults ages 19-55 who are entering college, regardless of insurance status. This change in policy is in response to the new State of Texas requirements that certain entering college students present proof of receiving the MCV4 vaccine within the last 5 years. Persons with immune deficiencies or persons who live in or travel to countries with high prevalence of meningococcal disease may also get the MCV4. Any persons who do not fall into these categories will have to get the vaccine from their medical provider. After January 31, 2012 the MCV4 vaccine under the ASN program will no longer be available from the local health department.
