How reindeer fly – and if that same process can be applied to humans – was the big question on children’s minds this year as they wrote to Santa Claus.
Hennley Fulcher of Sabinal asked Santa, “How are you doing? I would love the recipe for your reindeer food for Christmas. Then I could fly to North Dakota to see my friend Kylee every day.

I’ll eat it.”

I would love some reindeer food for Christmas, so I could fly to see my dad in the Army. I could tell him hello and give him a great big hug each day...”
In Del Rio over the past two weeks, a federal judge sentenced 29 Uvalde/Hondo-area Texas Syndicate members to federal prison, including four defendants to life imprisonment, for various racketeering and drug trafficking offenses committed in Uvalde, San Antonio and the surrounding areas.
That announcement was made by United States Attorney Richard L. Durbin, Jr., and special agent in charge Christopher Combs of the FBI’s San Antonio Division.
United States District Judge Alia Moses sentenced TS members and Uvalde residents George “Curious” Sanchez, age 40; Raul “Fatboy” Rodriquez, age 42; Mike “Big Mike” Cassiano, age 39; and, Cristobal “Little Cris” Velasquez, age 37, to life in federal prison for conspiracy to violate the Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organization (RICO) statute.
