(Music) Hello and welcome to America’s favorite
government news show, The New News. My name is Chelsey, and I’m your host and
your Huckleberry. First up, it’s time to buy a day planner and then clear it,
because we need to schedule a playdate. Glendover Park, Bethany Ridge Park and
Dayspring Nature Preserve are all getting updated play structures by the
end of this year. There will be many new features, so your kids will be sure to
yell, “Yee-haw!” as they ride the seesaw. And the hits just keep on hitting, because
some city facilities are about to get an Extreme Home Makeover. Well, more of a
Moderate Home Makeover. That’s because Allen City Council just approved $2.6
million and repairs and improvements around the City. They’ll be
fixer-upping facilities up and down, left and right, back and forth, side to side
and round and round. Growing up I never really got into sports ball contests. But
now there’s finally a chance to go score a goal point unit. Allen SportsFest is
coming to The Edge Skate Park and Visitor Center. And it’ll have everything
from street hockey to skateboarding to futsal to bouncy houses. Or just head
inside to do virtual sports in the FIFA PS4 tournament. Goooooaaalllll. It’s almost closing
time and you don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here. And yes, I just went
there and so should you. The Summer Reading Club deadline is rapidly
approaching. July 28th is the last day to turn in your logs and pick up your
prizes. So hurry up and ‘book it’ to the Library. See what I did there?
Book it? Yes, I went there. Finally, we must recognize a City employee who went to
infinity and beyond. Sorry, I just took my daughters to see the new Toy Story movie.
Anyway, congratulations are in order. This Month’s New News Person of the Day
this Week is Blake Martin of Community Services. He recently saw a resident with
a tire flatter than a Patriots’ football, so he pulled right over and helped her
change it. Good job, Blake. Way to ‘spare’ her from any more trouble. To learn deets on
the topics that I just dropped some knowledge on, visit AllenNews.org.
And hey, even if you’re an introvert IRL, we’d still like to socialize with you on
social media. Not to mention giving our YouTube a sub.
Well, I guess I did just mention it, didn’t I?
Okie dokie kids. It’s been a real peach, but now it’s time for this Huckleberry
to hustle on out of here. Later. (Music)
