Giving Ennis a behind-the-scenes look at a president’s visit to our region of the state was originally something I’d planned to do last week, but then my well-publicized personal injury accident took center stage.

Imagine my surprise when one of the strongest personalities from the memorial event at Baylor University in Waco’s Ferrell Center was arrested last week following the beginning of an investigation into the blast that destroyed West Fertilizer and claimed more than a dozen lives. Bryce Reed memorialized his buddy Cyrus Reed so well, calling him a “brother” who “was on fire for life,” that every journalist in the press risers at the memorial hurriedly jotted down notes, hanging on his well-crafted words.
