Gregory-Portland ISD school board members accepted a resignation letter from Band Director Chuck Young during a special meeting Wednesday night. Young had been placed on administrative leave with pay following a Sept. 16 band practice in which at least five members were overheated. "The health and safety of our children is our main concern," board President Randy Eulenfeld said. "Whenever something that could possibly cause harm to our students (occurs) it bothers us. Our decisions tonight are not taken lightly." See this week's edition of the Portland News for further details.

Strickland verdict: guilty

David Strickland has been found guilty of murder as of 5:16 p.m. today. Strickland was found guilty of shooting Mollie Olgin and Mary Kristene Chapa execution style at a Portland park four years ago. His trial finished this afternoon at the San Patricio County Courthouse. The shootings occurred at Portland’s Violet Andrews Park June 22, 2012. Olgin died and Chapa survived, though she suffered a traumatic head injury. The two shell casings found at the scene of the crime were the most important pieces of evidence, prosecutor Sam Smith said in closing statements. "We have two experts that say those two shell casings under those two girls matched to (Strickland's pistol). How do we know it's his gun? He bought it brand new. We know when he bought it. It has the serial number on it," he told jurors. See tomorrow's edition of the Portland News and San Patricio County News for more information.
