KATIE CLIFTON: A mother's prayer for the first day of school

August 17, 2014

Dear First Day of School,

I cannot believe you are back so soon. I mean, didn't we just end our last school year?! I can't really decide if I am happy to see you or if I want you to stay away a bit longer. But since you are rapidly approaching, in spite of my preparations (or lack thereof, whatever) there are some things we need to talk about. I think it is time for you and I to have a heart to heart.

Child struck by vehicle in Bryant

August 16, 2014

A three-year-old child has sustained non-life-threatening injuries after being struck by a vehicle in Bryant near Ridgecrest and North Streets.

Rumors that the vehicle was an ice cream truck are false, said Sgt. Todd Crowson, Bryant Police Department spokesperson.

“The child, whose name cannot be released, ran out into the street in front of a moving pickup when he was struck,” Crowson said.

The child was transported to Saline Memorial Hospital via ambulance.

The driver of the vehicle was not at fault for the accident and will not face any charges, he said.

Busy mom has baby while registering son at school

August 16, 2014

PASADENA, Texas — A mother in the advanced stages of labor thought she had just enough time to stop off and register her 4-year-old son at a Houston-area school en route to the hospital. But she was mistaken.

A school nurse and police officer helped Vanessa DeLeon deliver her baby Thursday at the campus clinic of Fisher Elementary School in Pasadena. The boy, named Geovanni, weighed 6 pounds, 3 ounces.

DeLeon says her contractions began earlier Thursday but that she was intent on registering her son Alexis for prekindergarten at Fisher before giving birth to her fourth child.
