    By Elaine Paniszczyn Over 3,000 elementary, middle and high school

    students attended the 10th annual Aviation & Trans- portation Career Expo on Oct. 4 at American Air- lines C.R. Smith Museum to learn about potential careers in aviation and transportation. Some learners had a gleam in their eyes and dreams in their hearts, already yearning for careers in aviation.

    “The Aviation Expo provides our next generation

    of leaders with a chance to visualize a career in avia- tion or transportation,” said Phil Ritter, Dallas Fort Worth International Airport’s (DFW) executive vice president for government and stakeholder affairs. “You can see the smiles and the wonder on the faces of these kids, and we are proud to open their imagina- tions to the myriad of opportunities that await in the skies and the roadways of the future.

    Dubbed the ‘magnificent seven’ each of the Texans was honored by the French government with the National Order of the Legion of Honour for their part in helping to liberate France.

    “In history it is important to honor greatness,” said Dallas May- or Mike Rawlings. “It is important to honor people who do things we wish we had done. It is important because they become our my- thology for the future. To fight in WWII, to help liberate the won- derful country of France… it is such

    POLICE REPORT n Public Intoxication Sept. 22, 9:28 p.m.

    An intoxicated male and female were hav- ing a verbal argument at Terminal C, Section A, Upper Level Roadway. When officers arrived, the man asked them to keep the woman away from him. Officers got her to sit on a nearby bench. The man said he flew in to DFW Airport and called his wife, who he married one month earlier, to tell her where he was. He said h used an unidentified female’s phone because his was not working. His wife drove up, saw him with the unidentified female and accused him of cheat- ing. Extremely angry, she got out of the car and pushed him. The man was calm and cooperative and said he would not take responsibility for his wife who was still emotionally upset. She said she had tried calling him about 50 times to find his whereabouts. She said when she drove up to Terminal C, she saw him with his arm around the unidentified female. She admitted to hav- ing one alcoholic drink and she was emotion- ally distraught. She showed signs of intoxication and refused to take the Field Sobriety Tests. She continually shouted at her husband while offi- cers were speaking with her. Witnesses said she threw a beer can at him and missed. They saw her shoving him. Because of alcohol consump- tion and starting a physical altercation with her husband, officers believed she was intoxicated and arrested her. n Possession of Drug Paraphernalia Sept. 24, 8:10 a.m.

    A vehicle was travelling 50 mph in a post- ed 35 mph construction zone in the 3000 block of West Airfield Dr. Officers subsequently found the driver had numerous warrants. He was arrested

    and searched. During the vehicle inventory, an officer found a blue and purple glass pipe which appeared to contain partially burned mari- juana. Besides the warrants, the driver was also charged with Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. n Public Intoxication Sept. 24, 7:12 p.m.

    A pilot at Terminal D wanted an intoxicat- ed person onboard his aircraft removed for safety reasons. When officers arrived, the man had al- ready been escorted from the aircraft, and they heard him ask the gate agent “Is this where I just put my hands behind my back?” He performed the motion. His speech was soft but noticeably slurred and his physical actions were exaggerat- edly deliberate. He turned around to walk away from the gate podium and took several steps before he saw the officers and said “Oh, y’all are already here. Is this where I just turn around and put my hands behind my back?” and again performed the described motion slowly and deliberately. One officer said, “Not necessarily. Why don’t you turn around and tell me what’s going on?” He turned back around and said he had been escorted from the aircraft but didn’t understand why. He swayed to maintain balance as he gave officers his passport. He said his itin- erary was “Here, to Dallas, then to Lake Charles.” He thought he was in Jacksonville. They arrested him for Public Intoxication. n Theft Sept. 25, 3:26 p.m.

    A passenger arrived at Terminal D, Gate 23 and left her laptop and iPad on the aircraft. She went to Terminal C to make her connecting flight and remembered she left the items on the previ- ous flight. A gate agent made a call and learned

    the items had been found. The passenger re- turned to Terminal D to retrieve the property, but it was nowhere to be found. Stolen Items: Apple Laptop Macbook Pro 13” $2000 and Apple IPad $800. n DWI/Public Intoxication Sept. 26, 2:08 a.m.

    An officer paced a vehicle at 70 mph in a 45 mph zone On East Airfield Rd. The vehicle passed two “no outlet” signs at the 2800 and 2700 blocks which signify East Airfield as a dead end road. Then the vehicle passed two “pave- ment ends” signs. The driver intermittently rode the break while traveling at the high rate of speed and rode the right curb of the roadway with its right tires. The vehicle reached the dead end and turned into the driveway for the East FAA Air TrafficTower before turning around and heading south on East Airfield Rd. The driver was stopped for speed violations and the suspicion of intoxication. There was a
