The weather was almost perfect and the soldiers turned out in droves Sunday for the 2015 Heart of Texas Salute to Citizen Warriors at North Fort Hood. Approximately 900 soldiers and their families were treated to a variety of activities, including goat roping, horseshoes, horsebackriding, touch football and more.
A petition was filed Friday in Coryell County’s 52nd Judicial District Court to temporarily suspend Precinct 4 Constable Roger Hammack, following his arrest for tampering with evidence and making a false report to a peace officer. Hammack was indicted last week on the two charges by a Coryell County grand jury. He was arrested and released on a personal recognizance bond by Coryell County Court-at-Law Judge John Lee.

The Gatesville Hornets’ 7-on-7 and Lineman Challenge teams enjoyed a successful weekend, as both squads managed to qualify for the state tournaments in their respective competitions. The 7-on-7 team elected to give it one final shot at a State Qualifying Tournament (SQT) in Arlington on Saturday. While they were unable to make it out of pool play in their previous SQTs, Gatesville defeated Nevada Community, Palestine and Carlisle in Arlington to get themselves past pool play, before topping Glen Rose in the semifinals.
