SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: UNLUCKY BUSINESS

A 61-year-old man with a Mabank, TX address on his driver’s license found himself at the Highland Park Police Department early Friday the 13th about a missing decal. Apparently the man had damaged the decal that allows him to operate a vehicle for hire at the DFW airport while washing his window, and authorities with the Ground Transportation office wouldn’t replace it unless he filed a lost property report. So he threw the decal away.

Skin Needs a Fall Break

Now that summer’s over and we have tanned our hides — and as cooler, dryer temperatures tease us — thankfully, the fall allows a reprieve from extreme temperatures that can wreak havoc on our largest organ.

What should you be using during the fall to rehydrate skin from summer sun damage and prepare for winter’s crispness? Body lotion.

There are so many on the market now. Lotions drew approximately $3.49 billion in sales in 2016, with Private Label leading the pack with a 7.1 percent share. However, for 2017, Private Label comes in second, according to statista.com.


Say It With Me: Co-Co-Nut

Dr. Bronner’s coconut oil.

Over the summer, I brought up coconut oil in one of my columns, mentioning that it has a teeny amount of SPF (about 4), which makes it a good moisturizer for arms, face, and neck for everyday protection if your sun exposure is mostly driving and walking to and from the car.

At the time, I had to stop myself from elaborating on the many other uses of the stuff, knowing that I could fill a whole column with that info.

Well, hi, hello … that whole column is upon us. Boom — keep reading.

The highly anticipated matchup between the Highland Park offense and the West Mesquite defense wound up to be a lopsided one.

The Scots surged to an early lead and held off a mild rally by the Wranglers for a 38-17 victory at Highlander Stadium on Friday in a showdown between first-place teams in District 15-5A.

With its fifth consecutive win, HP takes over sole possession of the league lead heading into a key road game next week against Mesquite Poteet.
