The Grapevine Lady Mustangs are headed back to the UIL State Tournament after a heartbreaking loss to Frisco Wakeland last season in the semifinals. After working hard all season, the Lady Mustangs are headed into the state semifinals on a 12-game win streak. VYPE DFW takes a look at what fans can expect headed into the game on Thursday.
The Games consist of traditional Celtic feats-of-strength competitions such as Braemar Stone, Hammer Toss, and Caber [log] Toss. Altogether, there were 14 athlete classes, each competing in 9 different events.
Susan and Doug Berry founded Highland Arts and Athletics in 2021 as a non-profit organization to keep this Celtic tradition going in the DFW area and to contribute philanthropically to the Grapevine community. Doug serves as the CEO and Athletic Director, and Susan does just about everything else!
Dave Besgrove, the owner of Grape Vine Springs Winery in Grapevine and Cowtown Winery in Fort Worth, didn’t grow up with dreams of becoming a vintner or a ghost hunter. His story is not unlike many others: He graduated college and went right into the corporate world. But then, forces beyond his control altered his life path forever…and ever…and ever.
The First Presbyterian Church in Grapevine sponsored a peaceful demonstration in support of Ukraine on Sunday, March 20 at Peace Plaza, located under the clock tower of the new Grapevine Main.
According to the church’s Communications Elder Deb Hinton, approximately 300 people came by during the two-hour event.
“It was obvious that there were a lot of both conservatives and liberals there. I mean, I was shocked at how everybody seemed to be on the same page about this subject. So, people brought signs about the no-fly zone and more military support from the U.S. and things like that,” Hinton said.
The Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney White Collar Crime and Public Integrity Team has asked a Grand Jury to open an investigation into the alleged theft of funds from the City of Grapevine by two of its employees.
Two independent investigations concluded former Director of Parks and Recreation Kevin Mitchell and former Director of Libraries Ruth Chiego used more than $58,000 of city funds for “personal use.”
An internal investigation conducted by a third-party firm said Mitchell used $33,359 of the city’s money and Chiego used $24,916.
