Masked robber loots store

 
 
A ski-masked man dressed in a black hooded sweatshirt robbed a Sabinal convenience store and gas station at gunpoint early on the morning of Feb. 3.
 
The incident occurred at the Shell station, located at the intersection of Highway 90 and Center Street, around 4 a.m.
 
The thief made off with a little more than $100 in cash.
 
According to Sabinal Chief of Police Jesus “Chuy” Reyes, the man approached the business from the west side and left by walking east out of the store. Reyes said a witness saw someone matching his description walking north on Center Street.
 
Shell manager Martha Torres said only one employee was working during the incident. Torres said the employee was shaken up but otherwise OK. Torres said that, per company rules, she could not give a physical description of the suspect.

Students learn about pet ownership

 
 
by Kimberly Rubio, staff writer
They say you can’t truly understand a person’s experience until you have walked a mile in his shoes or – in this case – paws.
 
Flores Middle School students have the opportunity to write an essay from the first-person perspective of an abandoned pet.
 
The Life on the Street contest, facilitated by the Humane Society of Uvalde and Uvalde Leader-News, is open to Pre-AP students.
 
Participants are instructed to write an essay from the first-person perspective of a pet that has faced one or more of the following hardships: homelessness (living on the streets), abuse, neglect, or extensive time spent chained/tied. The essay should address how the pet eventually found its way to a caring and loving home or shelter.
