March 24, 2016 – Thursday’s Jacinto City’s Council Meeting was full of words of praises along with award presentations by Mayor Ana Diaz and Fire Chief Rebecca Mier to members of the Fire Department’s Emergency First Responder’s Unit and a 911 Police Dispatcher for their successful response to a 911 Emergency hang-up call.

It was Valentine’s Day February 14th when the family of Roger Matheny who’s known for his years of being Santa Claus as he rides the fire engine truck throughout the city giving candy stockings to the kids discovered that his 3 year old grandson Joshua Matheny Jr. was missing from within the house where family members had gathered for a visit.

Roger said, “Everyone began to call out and search and within minutes my grandson’s cousin 11 year old Miguel Muro Jr. ran to the backyard and discovered his missing cousin submerged in the family’s swimming pool.”

After Miguel rescued his drowning cousin from the pool he began applying Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) techniques he’d seen on television. Police Dispatcher Tatiana Viana received a 911 emergency call from the address but for some unknown reason the call disconnected before Dispatcher Viana could inquire about the nature of the call. Dispatcher Viana following the city’s 911 emergency call procedures quickly passed the hang-up call’s address to the fire department’s First Responder’s unit in which one of the city’s paramedics’ scrambled a first-out-unit to the location while a second rescue unit quickly followed.

Upon arrival the First Responders took control of what appeared to be a child drowning victim. They immediately began life saving resuscitation techniques to the child whose skin had turned blue from being submerged in water.

County Attorney wins another battle in the fight to stop retailers from selling Kush

Harris County Attorney Vince Ryan, along with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, won a temporary restraining order last week against a La Porte Freeway gas station and convenience store to stop the retail sale of synthetic marijuana.

The order signed on March 23rd prohibits Moon Mart, 10010 La Porte Freeway, from selling or buying synthetic marijuana or any other “illicit synthetic drug.” The order specifically bans the sale of “potpourri, incense, bath salts, or herbal cigarettes that contain a controlled substance, controlled substance analogue, or an illicit synthetic drug.”

Synthetic marijuana, also called “Kush,” is a designer drug, typically manufactured overseas, that is marketed as a “safe” and “legal” alternative to marijuana. Synthetic marijuana is not marijuana at all but a dried leafy substance that is sprayed with powerful, added-in hallucinogenic chemicals that are dangerous and highly addictive to the user. It is often marketed to children, and is the second most abused drug by high school students, after marijuana itself.
