Highland Park Town Council meetings are usually a pretty cozy affair. It’s almost always just the council, some HP staff members, a few Junior League women, and me, with the occasional resident.
So when something happens in the chamber, everyone notices.
Today was DPS Chief Chris Vinson’s turn. His cell phone rang at the beginning of the meeting, ripping through the opening chords of AC/DC’s “Hells Bells.” I always took Vinson for a bit of a hard rock guy, so it fit perfectly.
Now if it had been Mayor Bill Seay’s phone, I probably would’ve fallen out of my chair.
