County 4-H seeking grant for gun range

The San Patricio County Commissioners, at a regular meeting, June 1, considered a request from County Extension Agent Adrian Arredondo for the County’s participation in seeking a grant from the National Rifle Association to construct a gun range for the 4-H program. The County’s assistance would include providing county land for placement of the gun range.

Renee and Jerri, Best Friends for 50 Years and Counting

June 8 is Best Friend Day and is celebrated internationally, however it has local significance for life-long Aransas Pass residents, Renee Hillis and Jerri Hodge- Henderson. They have been best friends for 50 years and their friendship started here in Aransas Pass in elementary school. Renee and Jerri met in the first grade, but they didn’t become friends until fourth grade. Ms. Ward assigned a project that year and had them work on it together. A friendship started as they worked on the project and has continued through five decades of laughter and tears. “We started a project together 50 years ago and we’re still working on it,” they said.
