The Mathis High School drama department held a dress rehearsal for this year’s entry in the one-act play competition, Thursday night (March 19), for family and friends. The play’s UIL performance was March 24 at Jones Auditorium in Kingsville. The play, “Goodbye to the Clown” by Ernest Kinoy, concerns the frustrations of a teenager who can see and hear a clown that is her imaginary friend, but no one else can see her. The cast included Carlee Vela as Peggy the teenager; Amber Gonzales as her teacher; Pedro Echvarria as Dr. Benson, the principal; Nicole Hardin as the Clown; Leticia Trevino as the Mother; and Johnny Lopez as Uncle George. The show crew included Paula Lara-Moreno, stage manager; Alyssa Vela, sound; Arnold Salinas, lighting; Kyla Luna, property manager; and makeup artists Jasmine Berni and Patti Evans. Kylee Martin directed the play.

Gregory-Portland head coach Kehr Schulz told his Wildcats after their loss to Victoria East last week that they needed to bounce back and forget about the game, and his team answered as G-P defeated state ranked Calallen 5-1 Monday night at Wildcat Field. While his team played near-flawless ball, much of the credit can go to pitcher Triston Busse, who struck out six batters and scattered four hits - two in Calallen’s last at bat - the only time during the game that a runner reached third base. Calallen’s lone base runner through three innings came after an error by the Wildcats, but G-P promptly turned a double play. G-P opened the scoring in the first inning as T.J. Raub opened with a walk, stole second base and moved to third after a ground ball out. Gilbert DeLeon then hit a clutch two-out single that scored Raub to give the ‘Cats a 1-0 lead after G-P stranded four runners in the first two frames. In the third inning, DeLeon picked up his second hit with one out and scored when Blane Hamon uncorked a double over the left fielder. DeLeon, who was running on the pitch, easily crossed home plate to make it 2-0. Calallen put two runners on in the fifth, but Busse got a strikeout to end the threat. In the bottom of the frame, Calallen replaced their pitcher, and G-P took advantage. Sage Hamon reached on an infield hit and his brother, Blane Hamon, followed suit one out later, then stole second base. With runners on second and third, Chris Alvarado was hit by a pitch to load the bases before Ryan Sturgeon reached on an infield hit, scoring Sage Hamon to make it 3-0. Blane Hamon then scored on a wild pitch, handing the Wildcats a 4-0 lead after five innings. Raub reached after he was hit by a pitch to begin the sixth. He moved to second base when Busse grounded out, and when third was left open on the play, he raced to the base, then scored on a wild pitch to put the Wildcats up 5-0. With one out, Calallen picked up its lone run after a pair of hits before a game-ending double play sealed the victory for G-P. DeLeon and Blane Hamon finished with two hits apiece, while Sage Hamon, Sturgeon and Ely Gordon each had a hit for the Wildcats. Wildcats pick up 3-2 win over T-M Tuesday night, the ‘Cats needed eight innings to pick up a 3-2 win over Tuloso-Midway. Sage Hamon followed Busse’s performance with a seven-hit, 17-strikeout performance to get the win. Sage Hamon helped his cause with a two-run double in the third inning. Sturgeon nailed a clutch hit in the eighth inning, after T-M tied the game with a run in the bottom of the seventh. DeLeon opened the eighth with a hit, and Blane Hamon moved him to second base. After Nathan Taggart walked, Sturgeon singled to score Bryce McCormick with the eventual game- winning run.

IPR to repair city's deteriorating wastewater mains
by Shane Ersland

PORTLAND – Portland City Council members approved a bid that will authorize IPR South Central, LLC to repair and replace deteriorating wastewater mains in Portland during a meeting at city hall last week. Four bids were received for the project, with the low bid of $872,960 coming from IPR. The bid was approximately $500,000 below the city’s budgeted price tag for the project, City Manager Randy Wright said. “As a community, we invest in our infrastructure and replace old pipes,” Wright said. “Cities sometimes neglect these repairs over a period of time, and then can’t afford repairs when they need to be done.” The project will repair and replace wastewater mains in four areas of the city, including East Cliff, Olde Town, Sutherland and Portland Place, and Westcliff. It will include approximately 15,810 linear feet of sanitary sewer line cleaning, 14,995 feet of cured-in-place pipe rehabilitation, 815 linear feet of pipe bursting, 40 point repairs on sanitary sewer lines, and various reconstructions on six manholes. “It’s an explore and fix project,” said Donnie Rehmet, a consultant for the city. “It puts an almost- laminated surface on the pipe. The method we will use will be pipe bursting. We are going to put in a few circle manholes, but it’s mainly pipe rehabilitation-centric.” Construction is slated to begin April 1. The contract allots 180 days for construction. The project will be funded through 2012 utility revenue bonds. Mayor pro tem Cathy Skurow questioned whether IPR would supply its own staff for the project. “They have several different crews, and they will have sub-contractors they generally work with,” Rehmet said.
