PRAY FOR TEXAS:::: Think about everything you're dealing with, then add flood waters to that. I cannot imagine. Houston is a mess. Austin is a mess. Dallas is soaked. Wimberly is in pieces. Some died. Others are missing. Take a second and pray for Texas. It's free and can't hurt.
A Honduran woman was found alone in the brush near Falfurrias. The smuggler left her for dead Monday. Border Patrol agents began searching for her at 3pm yesterday. They found her early this morning. She's alive.
YEA:::: Just returned from the 2015 TAPB awards banquet. Was humbled to share a moment with colleagues: Oscar and I won Best Anchor Team, knocked it out of the park with the editing of a special report.... And in a surprise twist, my Investigation into the death of La Joya's police chief garnered a statewide Freedom of Information award. I had to dig, dig, dig. Got my hands on FBI and Texas Ranger documents after Hidalgo County said no. The reports aired during 2014. Channel 5 News at 4 won for Best Daytime Newscast. Way to go KRGV Tim Smith and KRGV Cary Zayas. Joel picked up a handful of #1's for sportscasting. KRGV Erica Proffer and KRGV John Bartell were honored with first place wins for reporting.
