Texas water, energy forefront of issues discussed at Texas A&M conference
COLLEGE STATION – Experts at a conference addressing water and energy in Texas collectively agreed the state’s water needs will grow exponentially over the next decade, fueled by a “business-friendly” environment attracting more people to the Lone Star state.
But unsolved is how to fund the proposed $53.1 billion state water plan going before the Texas Legislature in January. This issue, along with education, will be on the forefront of issues debated among lawmakers in Austin, according to conference speakers.
Eagles give up 3 unearned runs in home district loss
The defending state champion Jarrell Cougars knocked Salado out of the top spot in 2A baseball when they squeaked out a 3-2 win, thanks to three unearned runs in the fifth inning of their March 19 district match in Salado.
Neither team scored through the first three innings as Salado pitcher Reagan Bazar found himself with Jarrell runners on every base and just one out in the first. He responded by striking out the next batter and shortstop Marshall Mann took a slow grounder and threw the runner out at first to get out of the inning.
Deborah “Borah” Van Dormolen passed away on March 10, 2013 after suffering a massive heart attack last week. She is being mourned by many in the political community, as she spent much of her time, energy and efforts in working for the Republican Party from the grassroots to the state house to the White House.
A missed three-point shot with 7.31 seconds left in overtime and a foul underneath the basket gave Jarrell’s Houston Stewart the opportunity to put the Cougars out of reach Jan. 29 in a hard-fought district loss for Salado 55-57.
The loss puts the #13 Salado Eagles into a tie with their nemesis the #14 Jarrell Cougars. Both teams have defeated the other at home. Both are headed for the playoffs and will likely share the District Championship.
