Out & About in Perrin

Excitement, school lock-down and other events in Perrin

By KAY MEALIO

A little excitement came to the Perrin area last Thursday when a person crashed an allegedly stolen car near the Methodist church, following a high-speed chase by the highway patrol. The male driver then ran from the scene of the accident, causing the school to go on lock-down. He allegedly came down Rick Road, entered a vehicle and took some money from the car.

Later, the wife of the Church of Christ minister was walking her dog on the road and questioned him about being in the vehicle, since she knew the neighbors. She said she told him that it wasn’t right to take someone else’s things. The resident who lived at that house called authorities and they immediately came and took him in. The sheriff’s deputy commended her for approaching the man in a calm and serene way because it could have developed into a serious altercation. He allegedly had several knives on his person.

The Area Spelling Bee will be held on Wednesday in the elementary gym, beginning at 9:30 a.m. Two students from each grade, third through eighth, will be spelling against Bryson ISD students. Only one winner will be allowed to travel on to the Fort Worth Regional Championship Spelling Bee competition.

All elementary grades will be having their Valentine’s Day parties this Thursday in their classrooms.

The Perrin High School Treasurettes will host a Valentine’s Day Junior/Senior High School dance

on Friday. The dance takes place in the Perrin Cafeteria, from 8 p.m. to midnight. The cost is $5 per person or $8 per couple.

The Treasurettes will be selling flowers, balloons and stuffed animals for Valentine’s Day. Deliveries will be on Thursday, Feb. 14. For further information or to check prices on flowers and other items, contact Mrs. Burke at the school.
