Pirates prepare for 2020 in 4A class

The Vidor Pirates are facing all the usual challenges as they prepare for the 2020 football season, getting into playing shape, learning and executing plays and teamwork, but this year, new 4A opponents, plus Covid-19 restrictions are adding additional challenges for coaches and players both.

Head Coach Jeff Mathews said he, his staff, and players are dealing with mandates from a regular alphabet soup of agencies. “We are following TEA, UIL and CDC guidelines,” he said. That’s the Texas Education Agency, University Interscholastic League and the US Centers for Disease Control for those not up on government agency acronyms.

In addition to pads and helmets, protective gear now includes facemasks and social distancing, Mathews said.

An encounter with a very persistent hitchhiker

An encounter with a very persistent hitchhiker

If you have spent as many hours in the outdoors as I have you will see some amazing sites. Many of them are from birds and animals. It makes me wish that I had been behind a really good camera on many of these adventures in order to capture them forever but then if I had been on camera, I would have missed seeing the big picture and living the events. I will never get to sell all of these amazing wildlife events to National Geographic but they will live in my mind forever.

Game Warden Field Notes

Lost and Found

A recent game warden academy graduate was enjoying a weekend of camping and fishing at Fayette Lake before reporting to his first duty station later this month in Starr County. One Sunday morning, the new game warden came across a small aluminum boat that was abandoned at the dam. He called local dispatch and gave them the boat registration numbers, then towed it back to the Oak Thicket boat ramp and secured it. When the local game warden arrived, a park worker told him that a boat had been stolen during the night from one of the campers. After talking to the campers, it became apparent their missing boat was the same one the new game warden had found on the other side of the lake that morning. The campers were overjoyed and grateful for the recovery of their boat.
