Customers of Dublin Golden Chick will be able to get some tasty chicken and help a neighbor in need from March 27-April 10.
During that period, Golden Chick is donating a dollar from every purchase to help 17-year-old employee Cheyenne Holt, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.
Holt, a Dublin High School senior, injured her neck in a softball game in early March. While performing a CT Scan after the injury, a nodule was found on her thyroid. Further testing revealed it to be a solid mass.
Holt was taken to Texas Children’s Hospital where a fine needle aspiration biopsy was performed. The test revealed she had papillary thyroid cancer, meaning she will have to undergo surgery and radioactive iodine treatment.
Funds donated during Golden Chick’s fundraiser will help the Holt family offset some of the medical expenses. The Holts wish to thank Dublin and Golden Chick for their support.
“We would like to say that all the prayers and well wishes are greatly needed and appreciated,” said Ed and Bonnie Holt, Cheyenne’s parents. “We feel there are no accidents in life, and this was God’s way of leading us to an early detection. We do not know what the future holds but just ask everyone to hold her up in prayer for healing.”
Three former Dublin Police Department employees were offered their jobs back following a special meeting of the City Council on Monday night.
Although initially set as a closed meeting, the former employees requested it be open.
The meeting was scheduled to let officers Malinda Spence and Tish LeCroy and dispatcher Charlotte Goforth present their side of the story after they were recently let go.
After the ex-employees relayed circumstances, the council voted to offer their jobs back.
None of the three had accepted the offer as of Tuesday afternoon.
“We’re ready to welcome them back,” City Manager Nancy Wooldridge said. “We’re going to move forward and make Dublin PD the station it needs to be.”

The All Stars League, sponsored by the Stephenville Optimist and Stephenville Lions Club, is organized to provide youth sports experiences for school children grades K – 12th with special needs who are not able to participate in traditional leagues. In the All Stars League, every child has the opportunity to participate and every child is a WINNER! No score is kept and the children play for the sheer fun of the game.
The Spring season will begin Monday, March 23 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the Faith Field, next to Faith Lutheran Church (3000 NW Loop in Stephenville, across from McCoys). Games will continue every Monday evening from 5:30-6:30 pm until April 27th.
This season, the kids will be playing baseball! Volunteers will assist each child to help them participate to their maximum level. Volunteers make a difference in the lives of these children by helping greet and/or assist at registration, helping on the field, or cheering and offering words of encouragement. This year the kids will partake in warm-up exercises, then a game. Kids will be divided into two teams. Each child will be given the opportunity to score a goal, as well as, play defense.
