On April 8 AARP tax aide program district coordinator Jo Maxwell gave recognition, a pin and a certificate to John Loring to commemorate his 30 years — 1984 for the 1985 tax year through 2015.

Independent filmmaker David Murphy was at work last week in Austin on his second film.
His intense laser-focused efforts demonstrated just how much planning, patience, creativity, determination and plain hard work it takes to make a movie.
Murphy, a 2009 graduate of Delta High School, along with four actors and a technician assistant worked for almost three hours on Saturday lining up and recording the perfect angles and shots for a two-minute-long scene in the movie he is making.
As the writer, main technical supervisor, director and cinematographer, Murphy had his hands full arranging the myriad of elements into place and then running through the two-minute-long sequence over and over again until it was done just right.
