Wilson’s farm stores delightful treats

by LOGAN GARNETT 
GENERAL MANAGER 
 
Just off River Road in Concan lies a 9-acre parcel of land from which many good things come – herbal extracts, jams, butters and pies, all of which are hand-made by Nanette Wilson, owner and operator of Frio Farm. Nestled along the banks of the Frio River, Wilson said that she started the Frio Farm brand in 2012, when she was making and selling her wares at various farmers markets in and around San Antonio. Then, in August 2014, Wilson’s line of artisan extracts was selected as the winner of H-E-B’s Quest for Texas Best contest, resulting in a $25,000 prize and an agreement by the grocer to stock its stores with Frio Farm products.

Burglar thwarted by armed man

 

by Kimberly Rubio, staff writer

The armed owner of DGJ Transport Inc. foiled an attempted burglary early Thursday morning, but was shocked to discover the offender was a former employee.

Howard R. Beatty Jr., 48, was arrested by Uvalde County Sheriff’s Office on charges of burglary of a building; evading arrest or detention with a vehicle; resisting arrest, search or transport; and criminal mischief. He was also apprehended on a Guadalupe County warrant for criminal mischief, valued between $2,500 and $30,000.

The incident occurred at around 2:45 a.m. when deputies were dispatched to DGJ Transport Inc. at 1430 Fort Clark Road for a report of a burglary in progress. The owner of the business, Domingo Garza Jr., who also resides on the property, called 911.

Garza fired warning shots, but the disturbance did not deter the burglar.
