Van Cliburn’s funeral, the Great Texas Warrant Roundup, and a Reward for Info About HPHS Threats


A weekend funeral is scheduled for Van Cliburn, North Texas’ most celebrated pianist.  A family spokesman says a funeral is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon at the Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth.  He also says services will be open to the public, as was today’s visitation.  Cliburn died Wednesday after fighting bone cancer.  He had played for every American president since Harry Truman, plus royalty and heads of state around the world.  He was 78.

It’s a rude awakening for some North Texans this morning.  The great Texas warrant roundup began today with law enforcement officers knocking on homes of unsuspecting residents with outstanding warrants.  It’s an initiative that happens across the state to make sure people pay their traffic and parking tickets and any other fines.

Reward money is up for grabs!  Ten thousand dollars will go to whoever can help identify the person or persons behind all the recent threats at Highland Park High School.  A few threatening notes – and even bullets – have been found at the school over the past month, prompting multiple lockdowns and evacuations.  Student access to the campus is now limited and there’s a stronger police presence.
