A 24-year-old Kaufman County resident is now in the county jail on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, evading arrest or detention, and two counts of aggravated assault against a public servant following a weekend police chase. A Kaufman County Sheriff's deputy attempted to stop a vehicle travelling eastbound on U. S. Highway 80 between Forney and Terrell early Saturday morning, which began the persuit. The driver led police on a chase on FM 148, FM 987, through Post Oak Bend onto county roads and finally ending in a heavily wooded area near County Road 277 at County Road 302. Police report the man fled on foot into the wooded area, and about 40 minutes later he was captured with the help of the Department of Public Safety helicopter. Sheriff's deputies say his speed exceed 100 miles per hour during the persuit. He is currently held pending bonds totalling $450,000.
A weekend fire is under investigation as a possible arson. Firefighters say Friday they responded to a fire in the country near Heartland in Kaufman County, and found a mobile home, which was unoccupied at the time, and three vehicles heavily involved in flames. Officials say when they attempted to question the individual named in the call, he became combative, and it took several firemen to subdue the man. Crandall Police said the man was wanted on an unrelated felony warrant and he was taken into custody and placed in Kaufman County Jail. Kaufman County's Fire Marshal Randy Richards says they are investigating the cause of the fire.

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.
