Several Plowboys Honored with All-District Football Selections

Brayden Beal is the district's Offensive MVP.
In District 4-2A-II, a district dominated by three teams—Hamlin, Roscoe, and Seagraves—the Plowboys got their share of All-District honors. Brayden Beal (Sr.) was named the Offensive MVP, Matt Buckley (Sr.) the Offensive Line MVP, and Jayden Gonzales (So.) the Offensive Newcomer.

On the first-team offense, Francisco Garcia (Jr.) is the running back, Jose Ortega (So.) a receiver, and Isaias Aguilar (Sr.) and Johnathon Cuellar (Sr.) linemen. The first-team defense includes Paul Pantoja (Jr.) at end, Tait Fullwood (Jr.) at inside linebacker, and Ortega at defensive back.

Second-team honors on offense went to Cade Garrett (Jr.) at receiver, Paul Pantoja (Jr.) as a lineman, and Juan Garcia (Sr.) as kicker. The second-team defense has Roady Mann (Sr.) at tackle, Parker Payne (Jr.) and Tristan Brooks (Jr.) at ends, Austin Willman (Sr.) inside linebacker, and Clemente Aguayo (Jr.) at back. Juan Garcia was named utility player.

Making the Academic All-District Team are seniors Brayden Beal, Matt Buckley, and Johnathon Cuellar; juniors Clemente Aguayo, Francisco Garcia, Tait Fullwood, Cade Garrett, and Parker Payne; and sophomore Nick Limones.

Jose Ortega is the only Plowboy to make first team on both offense and defense.
Congratulations to all the Plowboys for another memorable football season!



Roscoe’s only public laundromat, the Stone Tower Laundry, located at 200 N. Cypress in the Stone Tower RV Park, closed its doors this past Sunday, December 4. It had been open for two years. This is unfortunate since Roscoe residents who have been using it will now have to go to Sweetwater to the 12th Street Laundry to get their clothes washed and dried.

The owner of the laundry, who lives in Merkel, is moving it there. He thinks he can do more business there.



Roscoe Collegiate High School’s FFA Stock Show is this Saturday, December 10, starting at 10:00am. It will be at the Ag Barn on the School Farm next to the STEM Center and will feature competition in cattle, pigs, goats, and lambs.

December sunset.
As predicted, we got more rain this past weekend to the delight of some and chagrin of others. On Friday night (and early Saturday morning) my rain gauge recorded a total of 1.06”. Then on Saturday night (and early Sunday morning) another .1” fell, and on Monday morning another .02” for a grand total of 1.18”.

The temperatures for the week were mild to cool for this time of year. The high was Thursday afternoon’s 64°F and the low last Wednesday's 34°. There were sunny skies and clear nights leading up to the weekend, but then cool, cloudy and sometimes wet weather through Monday. Yesterday was mostly clear, but the high was only a chilly 48°.

Today will be mild and mostly cloudy with a high of 55°, but tomorrow is going to be cold, and weather warnings for the area have already been issued. We’re in for a hard freeze with temperatures dropping into the mid to low twenties at night along with enough north wind to drive the wind chill down into the teens. Forecasters are also giving us a chance to see our first snow of the year, although the snowfall is likely to be minimal, if at all, and not enough to create any serious travel hazards. Still, the high tomorrow will be only about 34°. Brrrrr!

Skies should clear and temperatures begin rising on Friday with mostly sunny skies and a high of 45°. That will go up to 60° on a windy Saturday and highs on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday should all be around 60° with lows in the thirties and forties.
