GREAT FINAL WEEKEND FOR CROSBY RODEO

DOS BORRACHOS, or Kevin Fowler and Roger Creager, will close out the Crosby Rodeo Saturday night.

Livestock Auction, Concerts, Rodeo events this week

By Gilbert Hoffman

CROSBY – June is Crosby Rodeo month, from the BBQ cook-off to the Livestock Auction to the CPRA Rodeo events, and now the final two music acts Friday and Saturday night. Good weather and great entertainment has brought out crowds this year.

The public and all potential buyers are invited to a Dinner Thursday night at 4:00pm at the Rodeo Pavilion, as a warm-up to the bidding later at 6:00pm for the livestock that the FFA students raised all year. A big crowd and big bids should be the atmosphere of the evening, considering that the COVID pandemic held back the event results the last two years.

On Friday, FFA and 4- H events will take place at the pavilion, and then in the evening the CPRA rodeo events kick-off (literally) at 7:30pm, followed by the entertainment for the evening, Josh Ward and Jon Wolfe.

On Saturday starting at 10am the Little Wrangler Rodeo will entertain the kids and their parents, with events that everyone looks forward to. In the evening, the Rodeo will come to a high point with the CPRA final events and the DOS BORRACHOS music entertainment, the popular Kevin Fowler and Roger Creager returning for one of their many appearances in Crosby.

Others at the press conference, L to R, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, Senator Ted Cruz, and House Speaker Dade Phelan. Abbott charged the leadership of the Senate and House with studying solutions that could be enacted by the State to curb future massacres.

AUSTIN – In lieu of calling a special session of the legislature to deal with new regulations to curb mass shootings, as requested by several state legislators, Governor Greg Abbott today sent a joint letter to Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick and Speaker Dade Phelan requesting the Texas legislative leaders convene special legislative committees following last week’s tragic shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde. The special legislative committees will be charged with examining and developing legislative recommendations on school safety, mental health, social media, police training, firearm safety, and more.

Family of 11 Loses Everything in House Fire Near Dayton

House catches fire near Dayton

DAYTON – A mother, father and their nine children who live near Dayton lost everything in a house fire Wednesday.

“I’m going to be okay. I just wish my kids didn’t have to go through this,” mom Jerene Buckles said.

Some of their children have special needs and take medication.

The walls are the only thing left standing at Jerene Buckle’s home.

“I think I’m still in shock. I think I’m still numb,” she said.

Jerene and her husband have nine children. Their youngest is six and the oldest is 20 years old. On Wednesday, their lives were forever changed.

“This was our dream home,” Jerene said. “We had finally found a home that was going to work for not only just what we wanted but also for our three non-ambulatory children. It was big and had the land.”

Jerene shared pictures of the intense flames that destroyed the two-story home. The fire torched trees and melted the family’s van. Another car was also totaled.
