GRULLA GATORS LAUNCH 2016 FOOTBALL SEASON WITH STRONG DISTRICT TITLE HOPES

The following is an excerpt from an article submitted to ENLACE NEWS by freelance writer Kenneth Roberts. The full version of this article can be viewed online at www.rgherald.com.
The Grulla Gators football team has started the 2016 season with strong optimism that a mixture of many highly experienced veterans and some promising youngsters will elevate the team to an excellent season and possibly a district title.
The Gators achieved a 2-2 District 16-4A Division I third place finish and playoff berth in 2015 before coming up short by a 26-21 score against Gonzales in a first round playoff battle.
The Gators opened the season at home on Friday night, Aug. 26 with a 64-35 loss to St. Joseph’s in a non-district clash. Gator Head Coach Abel Gonzalez III commented, “I was pleased about how well we were able to move the ball as we gained 466 total yards and scored 35 points. We have to get better defensively; we were up against perhaps the best offense in the Valley. I was pleased by the way we competed and continued to play hard all four quarters.”
The Gators skipper stressed, “We had a good summer of workouts and two positive and successful scrimmages. The defense did particularly well in preseason. Morale among our players was great (in preseason) and continues to be great.”
“We have great leaders on both sides of the ball; a good mix of offensive and defensive leaders,” emphasized Gonzalez. “I like our leadership and work ethic; if we keep working and stay focused I believe we can have a very successful season. We have a good number of players who are beginning their third season as starters. We have a good mixture of experienced veterans and promising youngsters. We have some talented youngsters who should be able to earn significant playing time in the offensive and defensive lines and also skill positions.”
In its preseason edition, Texas Football magazine indicated that the Gators return seven starters on offense and five more on defense.
Gonzalez explained, “We will continue to be a spread offense and try to get our players in space. Our offense should have a good number of explosive plays…Our quarterback should be the focal point of the offense as he can make big plays with both his arm and his legs…Our offensive line has been going through a transition period with some new faces. Our offensive line continues to show clear improvement and is coming together to be an effective unit.”
Gonzalez predicted that if the Gators stay healthy and the breaks go their way, they should achieve success on the gridiron in 2016 and perhaps have a good chance for a district championship.

OFICIALES DE LA PATRULLA FRONTERIZA RESCATAN A 19 MIGRANTES

02 de Agosto de 2016

Agentes de la Patrulla Fronteriza del Valle de Rio Grande rescataron a 19 personas indocumentadas que aparentemente fueron abandonadas a su suerte por un traficante de humanos bajo el intenso calor en una zona de monte. El rescate se produjo cerca de la Ciudad de La Grulla cuando los Agentes respondieron a una llamada de emergencia al 911 desde la Oficina del Sheriff del Condado Hidalgo. Se reportaba que las víctimas presentaban síntomas de insolación; la Patrulla Fronteriza de inmediato los atendió brindándoles primeros auxilios y agua, antes de ser llevados al centro de procesamiento migratorio para su deportación.
Autoridades del sector mantienen una campaña permanente en la que exhortan a los migrantes a que no intenten cruzar la frontera; “es muy peligroso cruzar el rio y luego internarse por terrenos agrestes en los que no solo se enfrentan a las altas temperaturas, sino también a los animales que habitan en el monte. Las personas adultas y los niños son más débiles y desgraciadamente los “coyotes” no esperan ni prestan ayuda, ellos solo los abandonan a su suerte; no pongan en peligro su vida ni la de sus hijos”. Es por esta razón que las autoridades invitan al público en general a tomar parte, no únicamente para ayudar a salvar vidas, sino también informando de actividades sospechosas a través de la línea de denuncias 800-863-9382.

APRUEBAN COMPRAR UNA UNIDAD NUEVA PARA BOMBEROS DE LA GRULLA

27 de Junio de 2016

Con la mayoría de votos los miembros del concilio de La Grulla aprobaron la adquisición de un camión nuevo para el Departamento de Bomberos. Durante la junta regular del mes, los mandatarios aceptaron la propuesta de la compra de la unidad que servirá como remplazo al camión que se utilizaba y que ahora es obsoleto. Un presupuesto de $75,000 dólares será utilizado para la compra, el cual pertenece al dinero recibido por una beca adquirida por la ciudad. Inicialmente los fondos habían sido destinados para modernizar las instalaciones del Departamento de Bomberos sin embargo al recibir las propuestas de trabajo todas tenían un costo más elevado que los fondos destinados. Además del costo fuera del presupuesto, aproximadamente $200,000 dólares dentro de las actualizaciones estaba el establecer un espacio para la segunda unidad misma que después fue calificada como obsoleta tras no poder ser reparada. Al no realizar las modificaciones se quedo con una cantidad $91,000 dólares aproximadamente. De esto se utilizó una suma de alrededor de $10,000 dólares en pavimentaciones dejando todavía una generosa suma.
La compra será hecha por medio del sistema aprobado por la agencia de la beca utilizando el colectivo Buy Board. De esta manera la compra no tiene que esperar a recibir tres cotizaciones, lo cual demoraría el proceso.

COLAPSA TANQUE DE AGUA EN LA GRULLA, AFECTÓ A MÁS DE 2500 FAMILIAS

27 de Junio de 2016

Habitantes de la Grulla, Alto Bonito y La Victoria, padecieron el pasado sábado 18 de Junio escasez en el suministro de agua, cuando el tanque elevado del vital líquido con capacidad de 125 mil galones colapsara sobre su propio peso, afortunadamente no hubo lesionados.
Administradores de la ciudad informaron que alrededor de las 9:39 de la mañana del sábado pasado ocurrio el percance. Se les pidió a los usuarios que racionaran de inmediato el consumo y asi evitaran un desabasto innecesario del agua ya que la reserva del tanque adicional no contenía una cantidad que pudiera cubrir el consumo de aproximadamente un día. La medida de reducir el uso del agua potable se consideró como un método para prevenir un posible corte del servicio. Además de la conservación, se recomendó hervir el agua antes de su consumo por posible contaminación hasta el 21 de Junio cuando se registró un nivel óptimo de calidad. Trabajadores laboraron durante el fin de semana para desaviar la conexión anterior hacia el otro tanque , evitando perjudicar a los usuarios. Según los mismos residentes no se presentó corte alguno al servicio de agua aún con los cambios. “No es una manera correcta para transportar agua pero a causa de la emergencia TCEQ está de acuerdo,” explicó Daniel Campos de la compañía Fulcrom Consulting Services, quien asiste a la ciudad. TCEQ se refiere a la agencia de Texas correspondiente en la regulación hacia la calidad de agua potable.
Administradores del municipio trabajaron durante la semana con el fin de corregir el problema que se presentó; el tanque dota del recurso a 2800 familias. Finalmente en una junta regular de concilio se aprobó recibir propuestas para remplazar el tanque lo antes posible con uno de la misma capacidad, sin embargo esto puede tomar de seis a ocho semanas para recibirlo.
