KTXS Came To Comanche To Hear About A Dinosaur!

Lately, there has been no way to predict just what will happen in Comanche from one day to the next.  That was the case this past Wednesday, when I attended a Revitalize Comanche, Inc. meeting in the new heritage center building, putting my phone on silent so as not to be disturbed.

By the time I checked my phone and did my call backs, I had exactly one hour to assemble a group of people at the city park for a television interview with KTXS about the dinosaur that is coming to town.  Thankfully, Mayor Ronnie Clifton, PEG president, Nancy Tindol, Comanche Elementary School principal, Curtis Stahnke, and artisan, Larry Harbour, agreed to move quickly!

Reporter Joshua Peguero began the story with Nancy.

Curtis Stahnke talked about the role elementary students played in raising funds through the Dimes for Dinosaur contest.

The mayor sang the praises of both PEG and Revitalize Comanche, explaining the economic impact these groups are having on the town.

Of course, Harbour chose to stay off in the background, leaving it to me to explain that he had created the mount for this sign that will sit beside Dino.

As I said, you just never know, BUT one thing everyone needs to know is that without the group pictured below, the group that calls itself PEG, the Comanche City Park would look very, very differently.

The simply call themselves PEG; however, the impact they make for our children is tremendous!
