4:15 p.m. — Ongoing Police Investigation
Brady Police are investigating an incident that occurred around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning in the 2000 block of Stanton Street. According to Capt. Lupe Carrizales, police and sheriff's deputies responded to a call in reference to a burglary of a habitation. The complainant described the suspect as a hispanic male, about 5-5" wearing a black t-shirt and white shorts and indicated he had entered her home and taken various items.

Nobody was found in the area matching the description and according to Capt. Carrizales, there were no signs of forced entry. Details of the exact chain of events are still being compiled by the police department and the investigation continues, but Capt. Carrizales stated that as a reminder, people in the community are urged to remain aware of their surroundings and report any suspicious activity to law enforcement.   

LARRY B. SMITH, 74, the former Editor and Publisher of the Brady Standard-Herald Newspaper, died Wednesday evening after a long battle with Alzheimers. Larry followed in his father's footsteps as editor and publisher of the newspaper having returned to his hometown in 1967 after serving in the US Navy as an officer. He served as only the third editor in the 105-year history of the newspaper. 
He is survived by his wife, Mary Ann Greene Smith; a sister, Sherron Snead of Georgetown; a daughter, Holly Smith Stewart and one son, Zack B. Smith, all of Brady, as well as four grandchildren. 

Larry donated his body to science with hopes it will assist in advancements that will benefit Alzheimers research. In lieu of a funeral, the family hosted a visitation at the Smith's home last Friday.

It's on the stands and live on the web....
