There was only one story on the front page of our issue for Jan. 5, 2017—a celebration in print and photos of the Forney High School Highsteppers drill team’s trip to Pasadena, California to participate in the 2017 Rose Bowl parade. The Highsteppers were one of only two high school drill teams invited to participate in the parade this year.
On Monday afternoon, Jan. 9, the City of Forney acquired a new police chief for the first time in some 39 years. Rob Sherwin, formerly of the Dallas Police Department, took the oath of office during a well-attended ceremony in the Emergency Operations Center in the police department wing of the Forney Justice Center. Forney Municipal Judge Mega Spain administered the oath of office.

Chief Sherwin began his duties immediately.
