Man Run Over: A 34-year-old Tarkington man, Dave Morgan, was reportedly run over around 6 a.m. Monday by a vehicle driven by his wife, Belinda Morgan. Reports indicate Mrs. Morgan awoke and went outside to look for her husband. When she couldn't find him sitting in his usual spot, she backed out, and apparently ran over him accidently. He was said to be lying in the middle of CR 2218. The man was said to be in stable condition with abrasions to his back, shoulder and face. He was taken to St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Beaumont by ambulance.

Health Concerns: State Representative John Otto along with other Texas State Officials, including Texas Health and Human Services Executive Commissioner Dr. Kyle Janek, recently visited the Mexico border to see first hand the situation. As has been reported worldwide, Texas along with other border states, have been inundated with children coming not from Mexico, but Central and South American countries. With the influx of people from countries where health care is of a lower standard, many have expressed concern about the possibility of diseases exposed to an unprotected public. Representative Otto said what he saw was a medical screening that was little more than a question and answer session. Rep. Otto said if they appear obviously sick, they are observed, however, if not, then they are moved in with other detainees, or on into other parts of the United States.
