KCBD Covers Post and Garza County

Published Aug. 2, 2012 @ 10:16 p.m.

Lubbock television station KCBD originated its evening newscasts from the Post City Park on July 26, 2012.

The Community Coverage Tour activity began at 12 noon with the first clue of the location of hidden treasure somewhere in the county.  The first clue was mentioned on the noon news followed by two more clues on the station's web site.  Soon after 2:00 p.m., local veterinarian and Garza Post columnist, Kerry Wink discovered a cross  necklace at the Close City School west of Post.  The "Finders Keepers" game was sponsored by Anderson Brothers Jewelers.

The KCBD NewsChannel 11 crew arrived in Post to set up at the park at about 2:00 p.m.

Locals featured on the newscasts were Post ISD Athletic Director Steve Smith, new Girls Coordinator Shelli Crow, J. Cruse Christmas Gallery owner Jackie Cruse, Garza County Historical Museum Director Linda Puckett, Vibes Fitness and Tanning owner Rhonda Norman, The OS Museum's Marie Neff, the Hotel Garza, Glenn Polk of Ragtown Gospel Theater and more.    

The charitable organization receiving funds raised that evening was the Post Animal Refuge Center (PARC).  Local folks chipped in $215 for the animal shelter organization.

Over the years, the Lubbock television station has explored twenty different towns and shared their stories and uncovered interesting facts about the communities that make the South Plains great.  The 2012 tour was the fourth time it came to Post.  Enjoy the photos.
