Maintenance today on the water line servicing the city of Kaufman has made it necessary for the city to ask Kaufman residents to not engage in any outside watering, but to conserve water while the work is completed. The North Texas Municipal Water District says the work should be completed by 11 p.m. Kaufman city officials say there are plenty of underground and overhead reserves to accommodate the needs of residents and businesses in the city. Again, the city of Kaufman is asking no outside watering today while maintenance on the city's water supply line is completed.

The College Mound Volunteer Fire Department will soon receive a truck from the Forney Fire Department.

Area residents are being targeted by another phone scam. The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts said a caller is falsely claiming to represent the comptroller's office, or in some cases the Texas Department of Transportation, and tells the intended victim there is an outstanding tax liability that must be paid immediately, and attempts to get credit card information. A spokesperson for the comptrollers' office said they never request payment details, such as credit card numbers or electronic check information, on the telephone. They recommend if you receive such a call, do not provide any personal information and report the call to local authorities.

Kuba Kawnik, with his penchant for esoteric instruments and classically trained jazz background, would seem worlds away from Rebecca Lowe’s love of Broadway shows combined with her fondness for pop and country music. Common thought would not give great odds that two such different talents could collide and ever be united into a cohesive whole. And yet, this couple has accomplished just that!! These two wonderful performers – an acclaimed Broadway musical vocalist and a spectacular Vibraphone virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist – now married, are enjoying great success as they team up together onstage in venues ranging from performing arts theaters in the United States to jazz clubs in Poland to the world’s top cruise lines.
