Crosby wins US90 rivalry

Crosby used the backfield effectively to harry the Dayton defense and the Cougar defense was relentless against pass and rush.

DAYTON – The 2020 High School US 90 Cougars against Broncos rivalry goes to Crosby for a 24 to 0 victory last Friday.

It all began with a 17 yard pass a long dash and a four yard touchdown in the first quarter to put Crosby ahead. In the second quarter, Crosby scored fourteen points with plenty of running capped with short passes. The impact of Coach Jerry Prieto was clearly visible on the sidelines as Crosby clinched their first district game.

Overall, Crosby goes to 2-2 and prepares to take on rival Barbers Hill this Friday inside the Jungle or Cougar Stadium.

FLOODING RELIEF: Precinct 2 cleans 1 million feet of ditches

Harris County Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia explains that cleaning ditches prevents future flooding, and is his priority. He credits the public works crews in the background for their hard work, even through the Pandemic.

Harris County PCT. 2 — Since being elected into office, Commissioner Adrian Garcia has made drainage maintenance a major priority. This week, he celebrated the completion of 1 million linear feet of ditching in Precinct 2.

Roadside ditching and drainage maintenance improves water conveyance to drainage outfalls, which helps in the reduction of potential flooding for residents and businesses. Without proper maintenance, standing water can penetrate and seep under road surfaces causing deterioration, which in turn, requires more frequent, costly road repairs, and neighborhood flooding. Many neighborhoods that have not been serviced in years now have clean, excavated ditches.

Commissioner Garcia stated, “I am so proud of the Precinct 2 family for this outstanding achievement. When I tasked our team to clear 1 million linear feet of ditches, I frankly thought it might be out of reach. Not only have we gotten to a million feet, we did it 2 months ahead of schedule! What we’ve accomplished in one year is collectively more than had been done in the previous two years combined. The hard work of my office will make a huge difference to reduce the risk of Precinct 2 neighborhoods flooding.”
