Winning turtle trained for days

Parents and children were everywhere you looked, waiting for the turtle races to begin at the Hallsville Heritage Days Festival on Saturday morning. They held cameras and turtle cages, ready to set the turtles free and let them run.

Special Olympic golfer Joe Garrard takes to the sport quickly.

Joe Garrard or Joey as he is better known, hit that tee shot a little more than 100 yards down the fairway, evidence of the practice he has put in to get his game ready. It has been just two years since he first picked up the game, but at about 5 p.m. every Monday night, he and his coach, Dave Houston, hit the course.
