Lakeview Centennial's Michael Thomas-Vaughan (21) scrambles for ball control against Rowlett's Albert Coleman (50) and Nathan Hawkins (32) during a basketball game at Lakeview Centennial High School in Garland on Friday, Jan. 20, 2012.

Lakeview Centennial battles Rowlett during a high school basketball game at Lakeview Centennial High School in Garland on Friday, Jan. 20, 2012. Both teams entered the game in a three-way tie for first place in District 10-5A.

Please ensure your video setting is at 1080p to see the images in high definition.

Some older slideshows and stories got eliminated from different newspapers websites. To keep images more permanently visible beyond my years, I'll move some onto YouTube. I didn't like the soundless version, so I'll add unique beats, piano or some loop combo to the background. You're welcome to turn off the volume. This is an older slideshow I hadn't posted yet. All the other older images will be posted to the actual shoot date to keep the blog better organized.

While I plan to fill the missing gaps with slideshows, I also plan to post slideshows (with and without sound) onto my YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/NewsEagles. Then, the images will have a home long after I’m gone. Please subscribe to my YouTube channel to see everything.

For newcomers, please read through the links at the top of the sidebar. Of primary interest should be:

Racers participate in the Trinity River Challenge kayak and canoe race on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River in Carrollton and Lewisville on Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014.

I got 3rd place in the Small Recreational Kayak division. It wasn't broken down by age, so I'm happy with the results under the circumstances. Here are the official results.

video by Mark M. Hancock / &copy NewsEagles.com

I gave some apples to our neighbors (a pair of donkeys) in Frisco on Saturday, June 29, 2014. I tested my GoPro Hero3 with iMovie. They've changed the program considerably since the last time I used it.

For Dirty Minds


video by Mark M. Hancock / © NewsEagles.com

I tested my GoPro Hero3 for the first time. Various mounts let me get some interesting angles. Click the HD button to see what the camera can do if you aren't data restricted. I made/used the music years ago for in-person slideshows, but most of y'all haven't heard it. It's amusing considering the content (yard work). This is the first video loaded on YouTube since they shut down Google Video. I need to upload all those videos onto YouTube and relink them ... in all my spare time...
