If you or your kids are driving around with no license and get stopped, the police will call Municipal Judge Deborah Campbell and haul you to court immediately to arrange to pay the fines and you run the risk of the vehicle being impounded. Not a good idea to drive in Friona without a driver license. There were 12 such arrests in April.


Esdras Rodriguez, FHS Class of 2014, was selected for the Texas High School Powerlifting Association all-state academic elite team. A 3.85 grade point average is required and only two from this region made the team according to Coach Daniel Hutchins. Esdras will be the Class of 2014 valedictorian. Salutatorian is Ricardo Soto and historian is Jacob Osborn. There is an all male top three this year, following an all girl top three in the Class of 2013. Watch for our special graduation section next week. (more...)
