Three days a week, John Vasquez conducts a real-life version of “CSI: Olney” in the evidence room in the Olney Police Department, making sure that officers have properly processed and tracked evidence collected at the city’s crime scenes.
Here are some pictures from the Open Door Christian School 6th-8th grade Weather Balloon launch on Saturday. The balloon payload landed in the back of a pickup truck parked at a home in Keller, TX after reaching an altitude of over 65,000 feet. The students were able to recover everything that was on the payload including the two science experiments. The student body voted to send up pop rocks and a bouncy ball. They are currently studying what effect the atmospheric conditions at the edge of our atmosphere had on the experiments.
Olney’s churches provide many opportunities to celebrate, worship and contribute to the community at large as the holidays draw near. Here is a list of upcoming events that everyone is welcome to contribute to or attend:
