Harris County mourns deputy’s death; parolee suspect identified in fatal crash

sheriff death

HIGHLANDS, Texas – Tragically, Harris County Sheriff ’s Deputy Jesse Valdez III, 32, became the 40th HCSO employee to die in the line of duty in the 177-year history of the agency.

Valdez, a patrol deputy, died after a vehicle driven by Kelly Jo Ivey, 29, collided head-on with his patrol car the early morning of October 29, 2014.

Ivey was charged later the same day of the tragic accident with possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine, as a result of the investigation into the crash. Her initial court appearance was scheduled for last Thursday,

October 30, 2014. Further related charges may be filed later.

Ivey was released from Texas prison on Oct. 2 after serving part of a two-year sentence on a previous, unrelated methamphetamine case.

“We will never forget his service. We will never forget his sacrifice,” Sheriff Adrian Garcia said about Valdez early today at a news conference.

Falcons control playoff destiny in 21-6A finale

The passing game and also the running game of Channelview quarterback Jalen Hurts will put La Porte to the test in Friday’s playoff-deciding game. Hurts has run for 854 yards and scored over 20 touchdowns on the year, like this one he scored against Deer Park.

The passing game and also the running game of Channelview quarterback Jalen Hurts will put La Porte to the test in Friday’s playoff-deciding game. Hurts has run for 854 yards and scored over 20 touchdowns on the year, like this one he scored against Deer Park.

One win – and they’re in.

The Channelview Falcons last regular season game could not come in more dramatic fashion. A victory over the La Porte Bulldogs will lift the Channelview Falcons to their first playoff berth in over 20 years. However, a loss would eliminate the Falcons, who are one of four teams vying for three remaining post-season berths in District 21-6A.

North Shore is sitting alone in first place with a 4-1 record, while Channelview, Deer Park and La Porte all have 3-2 records going into the final week. Beaumont West Brook defeated Port Arthur Memorial to give the Bruins a 3-3 slate and some needed help to clinch a playoff spot – which moves the spotlight solely on the Falcons game against La Porte at 7 p.m. Friday at Ray Maddry Memorial Stadium.

Although the Falcons handed North Shore its only district defeat, it is Channelview’s losses to Deer Park and West Brook that make Friday’s an all-or-nothing contest. A Channelview win makes the West Brook loss a distant memory, but a win by La Porte moves the Bruins into the postseason since they had defeated Channelview.

Earlier this season, Channelview Head Coach Averion Hurts remarked that the district playoff race could go down to the wire.

Old River Terrace United Methodist Church celebrates 75 Years

channelview church 75 years

Early in 1939,the Methodist Church decided to build a church in Channelview, Texas. The property that was selected by the charter members was 2 blocks north of Market Street. The Texas Annual Conference questioned if people would find the church that far off the main road. That location, now on Interstate 10, became the home of Old River

Terrace United Methodist Church. People did find the church and it has been a means of sharing God’s love and grace throughout its 75 year history.

The original wood frame church structure was built in 1939. In 1956, a new sanctuary and classroom buildings were constructed; however, soon after completion, the original structure burned to the ground. The new sanctuary and classrooms survived and, after numerous renovations due to storms and added structural integrity, still stand today.
