Bandera County Top Stories

It was a hot time on the old lake for Independence Day! You can partake of the above video of an explosive fireworks mishap at Cousin’s Point on Medina Lake, courtesy of YouTuber TexasSharpshooter. Nobody was reported injured. We wrote a brief snippet in the Bulletin at the end of this story, and KSAT12 has video coverage here, WOAI4 coverage here. Catch the view from shore, here.

Bandera High School senior Gatlin Magee lost his right index finger and some muscle in his hand after a fireworks accident July 4. He is undergoing a series of surgeries this week after a mortar blew up in his hand. When shooting off fireworks for Independence Day, a mortar kit fell over, and Gatlin protected his 10 year old brother from injury by stepping between him and the mortar.

Read about Gatlin’s story on the Bulletin web site, then check out the video coverage by KENS5 News and KSAT12 News.

Other Bulletin headline stories this week include:

According to coach Roy Klein, she is a junior-to-be pitcher who had 363 strikeouts, a 0.98 ERA, and hit .535 last season. I look forward to nice mileage checks from the Bulletin next season while following the Lady Dogs across the state in the playoffs.

Read about Bandera’s upcoming big bash to celebrate the National Day of the American Cowboy in this month’s edition of the Hill Country Current.

Did you know there’s a hiking shoe called the Bandera, so named after our beloved Cowboy Capital, sold as part of the George Strait collection by Justin? There’s also a Bandera Leather Jacket which “boasts a supple hand for the comfortable heft of a heavyweight flannel overshirt.” It also sports “distinctive, distinctively trimmed cuffs…” I kid you not!

Sticking with related George Straight topics, Blogger Mike Kueber writes a bit this week about Bandera’s own Bruce Robison and the song “Wrapped” he wrote which ended up on a George Strait album.
