Usually when you hear about old spirits coming into contact with the living, it’s in the form of a ghost story or horror movie and the results are almost always less than pleasant. In this case, however, the spirits in question come in the form of a secret stash of decades-old liquor and, far from harming anyone (outside of a nasty hangover), the long forgotten firewater looks as though it will bring a $10 million windfall to the city of Uvalde.
Uvalde Volunteer Firefighters and Uvalde Police are at the scene of a two-vehicle accident that occurred Wednesday night in the 200 block of West Main Street. The driver of the 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe struck a 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 before striking a diesel pump. The driver of the Tahoe was transported to Uvalde Memorial Hospital, after consenting to a blood specimen. She faces charges of driving while intoxicated.
Sue Schwencke-Rankin has been named the director of Herby Ham Activity Center, and she has big plans in store, including social media promotions and events geared toward young adults. Schwencke-Rankin comes to Uvalde from San Antonio, where she worked for various organizations and businesses.
Uvalde City Council on Tuesday voted to move forward with exterior renovations to the Nicholas Street School, a building community activist Chris Reyes Mendeke has fought to keep standing. Mendeke was present during the 6 p.m. meeting to thank council members for restoring a piece of Uvalde’s history.
