"Leopards claw their way past Bulldogs" by: John Hoffman

 BOLING - The Van Vleck Leopards opened their 2018 football campaign similar to their playoff run last season, scoring on their first four drives, and then holding off a late Boling rally to win 40-27 last Friday night.
   “We got off to a great start,” said Van Vleck Head Coach Robert Blackmon after the game. 
   “We struggled some in the middle of the game with penalties and mental mistakes, but that is something we can work on and correct. I was proud of how our kids responded to the adversity and played hard to the end. A win is a win,” 
   Blackmon commented.
   Van Vleck’s offense took the opening kickoff and wasted no time reaching the end zone. 
   Senior running back De’Mitri Monroe – and recent University of Houston commit - showed the Bulldog defense why he is recognized as one of the area’s best athletes.

Texas Dove Hunting Prospects Bright for Season Opener Sept. 1

   AUSTIN — Though Hurricane Harvey caused a significant drop in dove hunter effort and harvest numbers last year, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department expects the 2018-19 season to be back to normal. In Texas terms, normal means exceptional. 
   Opening day of dove hunting is Saturday, Sept. 1 statewide. For the third consecutive year, Texas dove hunters can look forward to a liberal 90-day season and 15-bird daily bag limits.   
      In addition, hunters in Texas’ South Dove Zone have the opportunity to hunt every weekend in September thanks to the Special White-winged Dove Days Sept. 1, 2, 8, and 9, combined with a Sept. 14 zone opener, the earliest in half a century.  Though hunting hours are limited to afternoons during the Special White-winged Dove Days (noon-sunset), hunters in the southern portion of the state are now able to take advantage of the earlier dates in which the majority of dove harvest in Texas occurs.

"Capital-fundraising group now part of aquatics center campaign" by: Mike Reddell

The proposed indoor-outdoor aquatics center – incorporating pools for competition and water therapy, plus a feature-loaded outdoor facility – was discussed at City Council’s regular meeting Thursday, July 26.
   Council Member Bill Cornman put the center’s progress on the agenda with a focus on a capital-fund raising group, whose members recently met with city officials, school, MRMC and city officials.
   Cornman said he was impressed with the “public and private consortium with financing, engineering, construction and science components.”
   The councilman credited Loy Sneary with bringing this team together - all at Sneary’s expense. Cornman called a “turn-key operation.”
   Sneary and Renee Savage, co-chairmen of Wellness Matagorda County, unveiled the estimated $14-17 million courtyard facility last March after years of research and multiple trips to area aquatics centers with similar missions.
