Plowboy pitcher Domonic Pantoja
Roscoe’s Junior Leaguers, 13-15 years old, known as the Plowboys, have a record of 5-0 and are currently on top of their division in the Mitchell County baseball league.  Their coaches are David Pantoja, Moses Herrera, Shawn Scott, and Edward Garcia. 

If they win on Thursday, the Plowboys will finish their season undefeated, be league champions, and earn a bye straight to the state tournament, which will be held in Ennis sometime during the week of July 22.  This is the best season Roscoe has ever had in the Junior League.

The Freshman League Padres have a shot at making it to district as the number two team in their league with two games to go.  They are coached by David Pantoja, Jackie Alvarez, James Arnwine, and Brian Sheridan. 

The Midget Brewers also have a shot at finishing second in their league.  They also have two more games to play.  Their coaches are Billy Murphy, Zach Welch, and Brian Sheridan.

The T-Ball Rangers finished their season on top and will play the second place finishers in the Colorado City championship game on June 15 at 10:00am.  Ranger coaches are James Arnwine, Jason Freeman, and Brayden Beal. 

Thanks to Lus Pantoja for providing this information and the baseball photos.



When a truck’s engine died leaving it stranded in the middle of the road on the eastbound Cemetery Road overpass just east of town Monday afternoon, the result was a three-vehicle wreck.  It was hit from behind by a red pickup unable to stop in time, which was then also hit a glancing blow by another tractor trailer. 

The pickup was totaled, but, luckily, there were no injuries to anyone.



Gary P. Nunn
Gary P. Nunn, who played here on the street stage at the 2010 West Texas Wind Festival returns to Roscoe when he and his Bunkhouse Band play for the first time at the Lumberyard Saturday evening.  A pioneer of the outlaw music scene in Austin with his Lost Gonzo Band, Nunn played with Willie Nelson, Michael Murphy, and Jerry Jeff Walker in the seventies—and has been a fixture of the Texas music scene ever since. 

His fame as a performer is matched by his songwriting skills.  What self-respecting Texan can’t sing along to “I want to go home with the armadillo, good country music from Amarillo and Abilene” from his “London Homesick Blues”?  He’ll be singing that and “That’s What I Like about Texas,” “Terlingua Moon,” and many others, including songs from his latest album, “Taking Texas to the Country.” 

Show starts at 9:30.  Cover charge is $12, and tables may be reserved.  For more information call the Lumberyard at 325-766-2457.



Once again, it was too hot, too windy, and too dry.  Farmers waited as long as they could for some precipitation, but in the past week many have begun dry planting their cotton. 

The rain we had a chance for last week never materialized, and on Friday we had another triple-digit day when the afternoon temperature reached 100°F.  Thankfully, a cool front moved through and caused highs to drop into the upper 80°s on Saturday and Sunday.

On Monday it warmed up to 95° and yesterday we had our hottest day of the year so far with a high of 104° and a low of 76°.  Today should be another hot one similar to yesterday, but tomorrow another cool front will move through, bringing with it lower temperatures and a 30% chance of rain.  Highs will be in the mid 80°s and lows in the mid 60°s both tomorrow and Friday. 

Saturday will be warmer with highs in the lower 90°s.  There will also be a 20% chance for precipitation.
