"Tidehaven trustees appoint Mike Pierce to fill board vacancy" by: Jessica Shepard

   Tidehaven ISD trustees appointed Mike Pierce as the newest board member after meeting in executive session Wednesday, Jan. 27.
   Pierce’s appointment fills Lee Edward Pierce’s board vacancy after his death last November.
   “Mike Pierce is a Tidehaven graduate and hometown product,” said TISD Superintendent Dr. Andrew Seigrist.
   “He was the head football coach and athletic director at Tidehaven before going to Edna ISD where he served in the same captivity.
   “I’ve been doing the football broadcasts with Coach Pierce for the last two years and appreciate what he brings to the board of trustees,” Seigrist said.
“As a lifelong teacher, educator, coach, and administrator he will bring a unique set of gifts to our trustee leadership team,” he added.
   Pierce would hold the board position until the next trustee election in November 2022, where he would have to file as a candidate and win to carry out the end of Lee Pierce’s term.

"As Super Bowl nears, spread word: Fans don’t let fans drive" By Gabrielle Kanu Family and Community Health Agent Texas A&M AgriLife Matagorda County

   Super Bowl LV is right around the corner, falling on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2021. 
   This year, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is teaming up with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service to remind football fans and Super Bowl partygoers that designated drivers are the best defense against the dangers of drunk driving. 
   When Super Bowl celebrations involve alcohol, plan for a ride home with a sober driver. NHTSA and AgriLife Extension want to remind everyone: Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk. 
   If hosting a Super Bowl LV party, prepare plenty of snacks and non-alcoholic beverages for guests and the designated drivers. 
   Additionally, do not serve alcohol to minors. If an underage person drinks and drives, the person who provided the alcohol can be held liable for any damage, injury, or death caused by the underage driver.

Above are the VVHS regional qualifiers from the district swim meet last weekend in Victoria. Grace Gibbens placed third and broke a school record in the 500 free. Boys qualified in the 400 free relay. Other school records broken: Grace Gibbens in the 50 free and Aaron Ansari in total diving points.

   Bay City High School boys and girls swim teams competed in the UIL District 27-5A Swimming & Diving Championships at Victoria Friday and Saturday, Jan. 21-22.
   Megan Moya and Glory Vargas both took firsts in the 500-yard freestyle and 100-yard freestyle, respectively.
   Clare Button shared District 27-5A Boys Diving Coach of the Year honors with a coach from Victoria. 
   It was her second straight year to be voted COTY by her peers.
   ‘We knew the kids had put in the work and were really ready to swim well, but they just got a little carried away on those medley relays,” said BCHS Head Swimming Coach Bob Button.
   “The negative was obvious. We lost those team points and neither relay advanced to region.”
   “The positive was that we all saw how huge our time drops were and that all we had to do was swim everything legal and we were going to have a great meet,” Button said.
