He’s All Heart

Three surgeries later, T.J. still going strong

It's the summer before his first grade year and Tyrone Smith, Jr is not letting a little thing like a hole in his heart slow him down.

He was born Feb. 9, 2006 with a hole in his heart. As a result, one of his heart valves will not remain open. The summer of 2009 doctors discovered that Tyrone was experiencing just 20 percent blood flow to one lung and 80 percent to the other.

Tyrone Smith Sr, said his son – nicknamed T.J. remains full of energy in spite of two heart surgeries and one lung surgery the little boy already has behind him.

Minden Police have little to go on as they track down an armed robbery suspect.

According to reports, around 7 p.m. Monday an unidentified white male walked into a hotel/motel on Sibley Road and demanded money from the clerk.

"The man is unrecognizable on the video," said Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper. "We do have an eyewitness who saw him walking across the parking lot from a convenience store just prior to the robbery."
