Commissioner candidate charged with gambling

One local political candidate learned first-hand about the old adage “Ignorance of the law is no excuse.” Vestal Ray Ashby Jr., who is running for Coryell County Precinct 4 commissioner, was charged last week with gambling promotion in connection with a drawing held earlier this year for his campaign.

Hornets earn all-district spots

Gatesville High Scool had a total of five players included on the District 17-4A all-league softball team, headed by a pair of first-team selections. Infielder Kenzie Winkler and outfielder Amiah Lamar were both named to the first team, while infielder/pitcher Chesney Smith earned a second-team spot.

The awards banquet that comes at the end of every sports season is a time of reflection, celebration and sometimes, a bittersweet conclusion. Head coach Eric Cates and the Gatesville High School tennis squad made a point of making sure no bitterness came from their banquet, as team members and parents were treated to a night of fun and celebration Friday night.
