Greenville – Charges of record tampering against two former City of Lone Oak employees have been dropped.

The cases have now been dismissed after motions were filed Friday due to insufficient evidence.
Commerce – The Northeast Texas Children's Museum will be offering a new class for preschoolers and their mothers this fall. The class, "Healthy Kids from A to Z", is being sponsored by the Hunt County Regional Healthcare and the Texas A&M University-Commerce Morris Recreation Center.
Each of the eight sessions will present an example of a healthy lifestyle and an associated letter of the alphabet. With each meeting there will be time for children to play in the Museum and time for their mothers to socialize.
Greenville – The cause of the power outage was still unknown as of early Tuesday morning, although officials with the Greenville Electric Utility System (GEUS) said the blackout occurred due to a failure at their diesel power plant.

During the blackout, Greenville Police Department patrol cars were posted at dark downtown intersections to help guide traffic.
