San Diego, Texas, in May

Good Nephew, Bad Nephew. Marco Garcia resigned from his position as San Diego Animal Control officer two weeks after he was arrested for assaulting his 66-year-old aunt in an incident regarding a dog he brought home from work. Garcia’s aunt, who is also his neighbor, went to his house to complain that the dog was in her yard. “The complaint then led to an assault,” Duval County’s chief deputy Jose Martinez told the Duval County Press. According to a report filed by the victim, Ester Garcia, her nephew grabbed her face and pushed her to the ground. Ester Garcia declined to comment about the incident.

Lose the Doctor. Juan Navejar led the Star Studs to a victory over the Devious Divas in an Alice-Echo News Journal weight-loss challenge. Navejar, director of the Alice Chamber of Commerce, lost 13 pounds in 12 weeks, making him the overall winner of the contest and giving the men’s team a total of 23 pounds lost. The women’s team lost 16. The week before the challenge began, Navejar gave up Dr. Pepper and all other caffeine for Lent. “I had a little head start,” he admits. Navejar’s prizes include a three-month membership to a local gym.

Bobcat Boys. The Santa Rosa de Lima Cub Scout Pack 47 awarded Bobcat badges to ten boys who learned the Cub Scout promise, “the law of the pack,” the Cub Scout sign, handshake, motto, and salute. The Bobcat badge is the first badge all Cub Scouts receive. Cub master Dwane Walters, whose son Beau is one of the new scouts, says the boys are learning “respect for themselves, their community, and their country.” The ceremony took place at the Santa Rosa de Lima Parish Hall in Benavides.

Rammed. Gloria Mendez of San Diego seeks $250,000 for damages and injuries she claims resulted from a collision with a Duval County sheriff’s deputy vehicle on New Year’s Day. Her attorney submitted a letter to county judge Abel Aragon on April 21, stating that Mendez suffered physical injuries and mental anguish after a sheriff’s deputy rammed her 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt while in pursuit of a suspect. The letter claims intent to sue. “Until the lawsuit is filed, we don’t respond,” says Duval County attorney Richard Carillo.
