how to get the skill
For those who use Amazon Alexa devices, simply go to the Alexa App on your phone, TV or other devices and enable the Skill named “MANSFIELD TEXAS EVENTS”. After this Skill is enabled, you can hear the 30 second news broadcast by saying, "Alexa, play my Flash Briefing" or "Alexa, what's my news". Almost any vocal request that contains "flash briefing" or "news" will start the brief broadcast.
