Jesse King joined Boyd Powers and Williamson and was sworn into the State Bar of Texas by District Judge Brock Smith in a ceremony Thursday.

King, the son of Stacey Sandford Rhine and David King, both of Decatur, received his law degree from Texas Tech University earlier this year. He interned at Walters Balido and Crane in Dallas, Mountain States Legal Foundation in Denver, and Boyd Powers and Williamson. He was named Most Outstanding Member of the Board of Barristers at Texas Tech.

King is a 2009 graduate of Decatur High School, and he received his bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University in 2013.

“We’re thrilled to have Jesse as part of our team,” said partner Derrick Boyd. “I have had the pleasure of knowing him and his family for a long time. We are grateful he has come back to be a part of this community. He is extremely hardworking and bright and will be a great addition for the long-term growth and development of our firm.”


Trail Drive Management Corp. (TDMC), the non-profit operating entity of Dickies Arena, announced an expanded partnership with North Texas Chevrolet Dealers that includes the Fort Worth Stock Show last week.

James Wood Motors Executive Manager Carey Williams is president of the North Texas Chevrolet Dealers association and was instrumental in developing the new, multi-year deal, which provides naming rights to the Dickies Arena parking garage. Branding of the garage will be in place for the 2019 Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo.

“The North Texas Chevy Dealers are excited to enter into a partnership with Dickies Arena for the naming rights to the parking garage,” said Carey Williams, president of the North Texas Chevy Dealer association. “We have been a longtime partner of the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, and this was a natural step for our brand and commitment in the community.”

“We believe the Chevrolet brand is a great fit for our venue and our guests,” said Matt Homan, president and general manager of TDMC. “Chevrolet has been a great partner of the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo for years, and we are looking forward to expanding that partnership at Dickies Arena.”

Beginning in 2020, Dickies Arena will be home to the Fort Worth Stock Show rodeo performances. The $540 million project will complement the current Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum, which will continue to serve as a major equestrian show arena.


“The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman outlines five ways to express and experience love. Supposedly we all have a primary love language … mine is Chick-fil-A.

A friend of mine found this and thought it fit me to a “T.”

Kristen’s 5 love languages: (It’s hard to pick just one when CFA is involved.)

1. Acts of service – Would you like me to pick up some Chick-fil-A?

2. Quality time – Would you like to go to Chick-fil-A with me?

3. Words of affirmation – Thank you for this Chick-fil-A.

4. Gifts – I got you Chick-fil-A.

5. Physical touch – The Lord’s chicken on your lips.

Days without Chick-fil-A in Wise County: 47.
