RIP Mr. Carl Fisher So sad to hear about the passing of Carl Fisher. He had been ill off and on for several months. For those who may or may not remember, Mr. Fisher was injured during the 1999 ambush of law enforcement officers. As a retired Border Patrol agent, he intervened and was injured in the gunfire along with Louis Tudyk. Three others were killed – Atascosa County deputies Thomas Monse, Mark Stephenson and DPS Trooper Terry Miller. He’ll be missed.

Congrats to Kiddos Kudos go to the area exhibitors at the Atascosa County Livestock Show! Record-breaking sales were recorded. Way to go 4-Hers and FFAers!
