St. Andrew’s festival a success

Activity this past week included the filing of 54 cases with our municipal court and our service calls numbered 43. Included in those 43 calls were 5 vehicle unlocks, 3 assist disabled motorist and 5 alarm calls.
We only had one property crime reported and it was a burglary of a building. An unknown person entered a building in the 18000 block of FM 2790 N (near the Lytle Animal Control Center) and took an antique ice chest along with an air compressor. The loss was valued at approx. $525.
We took a couple people to jail this past week. Sgt Hanson booked a 27 year old female on a charge of Terroristic Threats after she threatened her Mother while shopping at the H.E.B. C-Store. After she was taken into custody a “good” amount of drug paraphernalia was found to be in her possession. This most likely is the root of the problem. The other arrest was the result of a report of a suspicious person on the access road of I.H.-35 by McDonald’s. Ofc. Guzman arrested a 24 year old male on two felony charges after he was found to have 7 baggies of heroin and identifying documents belonging to another. These illegal drugs sure can take good people and put them on a path to self destruction, it sure is sad. It would be simple if throwing somebody in jail would fix the problem but that is a long way from the truth.
St. Andrew’s Catholic Church had their annual festival this past Sunday and it was a “humdinger,” Ramon Ayala was the headliner and while I heard his name in the past I had no idea that he was such a star. The guy has recorded over 100 albums! The weather held out great until the very end when we started getting reports of severe weather, the event ended just a few minutes early. I guess there were about 4,000 plus people there, and we only had one fellow who was acting inappropriately and was asked to leave. I worked security for the Church all day and I figured if they were paying me the least I could do was drop a few bucks in support of the church. So I bought about $30 in raffle tickets (I didn’t win anything). I visited some of the food booths because it seemed like the thing to do. So here is my review: Chalupas – very good, I visited them several times for a total of 4 chalupas. Hamburger: Really good, I passed on the fries because I am trying to “eat better.” Shish Kabob: good – but there is something about eating grilled vegetables at a festival, stuff at festivals should be fried. Look around, we didn’t get to be the country we are by eating a bunch of grilled vegetables. Oh yeah and I washed it all down with a lime flavored snowcone.
