Almost Mayberry?

Whitesboro, Texas is a town of just over 4,000 people.  It is a great town with friendly people and a small town environment. Not exactly  Mayberry,  but it is pretty close or at least I think so.

The Lovejoys own a little restaurant located on Main that serves lunch on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11-12. They serve a sandwich, savory soup, quiche or salad. They also have a soda shop that they rescued and still serve ice cream from.

I was in our grocery store named David’s and wound up talking with a friend of ours for about an half an hour in one of the aisles.  Then in walks the Chief of Police getting a few groceries. My wife and I finished our conversation with our friend and proceeded to the check out when up walked the Chief. I gave him a Badges & Boots Gospel tract and introduced myself. He told me about how he uses a local Pastor as his Chaplain and then has another local minister as a back up.  We talked about a few other things and then said our goodbyes.

Whitesboro Police Department consist of five Patrol Officers, a Patrol Sergeant and the Chief. It is their mission to enhance the quality of life of the citizens who live, work and visit this community, by a commitment to excellence in the professional and courteous delivery of the police service while operating under the framework of the U.S. Constitution in enforcing the laws of the State of Texas, local laws of Whitesboro and preserving human life.
