The Sheldon ISD school board recently approved these plans for the new high school and site development fronting Beltway 8 near Garrett Road.

The project is part of the $285 million bond issue passed by voters in May 2016, according to Superintendent King Davis.

General Contractor Durotech has begun work on the site, clearing and grading in the initial phase.

The project will include a new football stadium, parking and a water retention lake.

Davis said that the bond package also included a new sixth elementary school, technology upgrades district-wide, and conversion of C.E.King high school to a new middle school, and conversion of the middle school to an Educational Support Building. Other additions and renovations will be undertaken on existing district schools.

Greenwood fundraiser held at Royal Purple Raceway

Thousands of well-wishers congregated at the Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown last Saturday, for a benefit fund-raiser for the family of fallen Deputy Constable Clint Greenwood. Cooks boiled tons of Crawfish for the crowds. Constable Sherman Eagleton expressed his sorrow, saying “I’m so thankful that everyone came out… bringing us all together, and we’re surviving.” The benefit was the idea of Caleb Warden, and included many local cooking teams. The group has set a goal of raising $100,000 for the Greenwood family.

Man drowns near Magnolia Gardens attempting to save girl

EAST HOUSTON – A man drowned in the San Jacinto River, on Saturday about 2:30 p.m. The incident occurred near Magnolia Gardens, at Beach Street and Riverside.

Authorities said that a family was enjoying a swim, when a young girl in the group began to flounder in the water, and was drowning.

Four male members of the party jumped into the river to rescue the girl, but one of them, a 25-year-old man, drowned while trying to swim to the girl.

The San Jacinto River is notorious for a slippery bottom in the area, and swimmers are always cautioned about the dangers.

The girl was rescued and safe, according to Sheriff’s deputies. However, they had to search the river to recover the body of the man who did not survive the rescue attempt.

NORTH CHANNEL CHAMBER: Rockets Mascot “Clutch” speaks about his career

Members of the North Channel Chamber were entertained by a speaker that they knew in costume, as “Clutch the Bear” the Houston Rockets mascot, but didn’t know as a person. Robert Boudwin spoke about his personal live, including the 21 years he enjoyed and profited from being mascot Clutch, and the “craziest half hour of my life” with several personal tragedies in 2011.

Boudwin showed a video of his stunts and performances as Clutch. He said he talked his way into the job, starting at $20,000 a year and ending at $300,000 a year.

His tragedies included a father with cystos fibrosis that needed a lung transplan, a wife that left him at his time of crisis, and the sale of his house in the midst of this. Boudwin has become an advocate for organ transplants, and urged the audience to register for this cause. He said that 9.5 million people are registered in Texas to donate organs on their death. The website for this is donatelifetexas.org.

Boudwin is an accomplished performer, marketeer, coach, and producer of school shows. He estimates that in 21 years he has presented at 1750 schools.
