In a developing story today, its being reported that as many as eight starting football players from one of the local high schools were arrested sometime this weekend for allegedly being in possession of alcoholic beverages. The arrests occurred at house parties with as many as fifty being arrested in total.

School officials are aware of the reported incident but are in the process of getting more details.

Maverick County tires of hearing budget blues

EAGLE PASS — For more than two hours at a Monday budget hearing, the Maverick County commissioners listened as department heads begged for things as basic as postage stamps and working printers, and as sobering as mandatory repairs to the county jail.
“We have a letter from the Jail Commission. If nothing is done with this facility, next year they're going to shut it down,” Sheriff Tomas Herrera warned.
Broke as usual, Maverick County hasn't given its employees a pay raise in three years, and there is little hope for a balanced budget, new printers or raises. Some residents are fed up. MORE.

This does not compute

It’s necessary now to re-visit and expand on an earlier issue.
Imagine having to call a technician to do these little jobs (to name just a few) on your computer: add a font, change the desktop, switch the screensaver, add a bookmark to your browser, and enable or disable the popup blocker.
Some EPISD staff and teachers already face this situation and all will eventually be in the same boat if the technology office ever completes its new, massive reconfiguration project of the district’s network and networked computers. More.
Flooding aftermath continues - BP agents help out
Border Patrol agents were among many others that helped those that were devastated by surging waters last week. Ravishing floods hit the central part of Eagle Pass late Wednesday, September 9, 2009. Over 121 families were affected but no deaths were reported.
Local police were not able to respond to frantic 911 calls from residents trapped in the flash floods. Residents were told that they were not trained for water rescues, leaving residents to fend for themselves during the harrowing minutes which seemed an eternity to many of those affected.
On Saturday September 12, over 200 volunteers from different groups showed at Saint Joseph Church on Comal Street to to help clean up homes of affected residents.
Over 30 U.S. Border Patrol agents lifted heavy items like furniture stoves, and refrigerators. Maverick County and City crews were also assisting in picking up brush, trash, and tires.
Student groups from C.C. Winn and Eagle Pass High Schools also helped in this massive neighborhood clean-up. The American Red Cross volunteers from New Braunfels, San Antonio, and Del Rio also participated.
The Salvation Army has been feeding volunteers and victims since early Friday.

"It is an expansive effort with the Rangers playing a more high-profile role than they've ever played before," Perry said of the Department of Public Safety's elite investigative unit.
The forces, dubbed Ranger recon teams, are the latest effort "to fill the gap that's been left by the federal government's ongoing failure to adequately secure our international border with Mexico," he said. More.

by Juan Valdez
Eagle Pass Sports Central (http://eaglepasssportscentral.com/) has an interesting poll concerning the upcoming realignment for U.I.L. competition. As the site points out, in about 5 months new district configurations will be announced, and both Eagle Pass schools might have enrollment sizes qualifying them for 4-A status with the option of remaining 5-A.
You can visit the website where Morris Libson recounts several scenarios for both the 4-A and 5-A possibilities. . More.
