Sheriff: Deputies will be patrolling roads, beaches

 There will be extra Matagorda County deputies on the roads and the beaches this Independence Day weekend, Sheriff Skipper Osborne said.
   “Drinking and driving will not be too good of an idea this weekend,” the sheriff remarked at the county commissioners court meeting Monday morning.
   The sheriff commended Precinct 1 Commissioner Kent Pollard for the excellent condition of Matagorda Beach, where a bulk of the July 4th weekend beachgoers will converge.
   “There is always some trouble (on the beach) and we will have extra people on patrol,” the sheriff said.
