Exxon’s newest Check Out convenience store with 16 gas pumps had a ‘soft opening’ July 15th, located on West Wheeler Ave. in Aransas Pass, across from competitor Murphy USA at Walmart. Management promised a formal Grand Opening and ribbon cutting, aiming for the second week of August. Equipment to make ‘The Taco Company’ food bar completely operational was on its way and hasn’t been installed. The store also features a ‘Beer Igloo’, a walkin cooler for enthusiasts to pick and pull their favorite brews already ice cold before they leave. Aransas Pass Progress

Catherine Edwards, News Director of Del Mar College NPR affiliate KEDT-FM and husband Gary, City Manager for Aransas Pass get set for a morning bike ride along a concrete path along the perimeter of Conn Brown Harbor Saturday, July 23rd, one of three favorite spots the couple enjoy getting exercise several times a week. The others include Port Aransas and Ocean Drive in Corpus Christi. “It’s an excellent place to bike,” Gary remarked of the trail here with a water view. With safety helmets in place, the couple – married 30 years – say biking and other exercise has been an important part of their lives to stay healthy. “She bought me a bike in Arizona, Maricopa County,” Edwards revealed it was his wife’s inspiration that got him peddling some time ago. “Gary’s always been interested working out,” remarked Catherine. “It’s so beneficial.” Aransas Pass Progress
