Unanswered: Refs Flee in Hinton Loss

The Hinton sidelines erupted. Senior Cache Garrett rushed through the Cordell offensive line, taking down the Blue Devil quarterback on a 4th-and-goal at the Comets one-yard line with zero seconds left in the game. However, as the Comet faithful were ready to celebrate a 7-6 victory, the play wasn’t over.

With the play clock nearing zero seconds, Cordell was forced to rush the snap, which went under the quarterback and was scooped up by the Blue Devils fullback, who ran the ball in the end zone as time expired, giving Cordell a 12-7 win over Hinton (1-6, 1-4).

“I saw the fumble,” coach Larry Lewis said. “But, I also saw that [Cordell] wasn’t set. I thought that they would blow the play dead because they snapped the ball after they were already moving. Our kids were celebrating, and I was like ‘heck, we just lost’.”

Hinton Fire Department Champions Fire Safety

Consider this scenario: It’s 2 o’clock in the morning. You and your family are fast asleep when you awaken to the smoke alarm sounding and the smell of smoke. What do you do? If you and your family don’t have a plan in place, it could jeopardize your safety, or even prove deadly.

In a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds. That’s why home escape planning is so critical in a fire situation. It ensures that everyone in the household knows how to use that small window of time wisely.

Truck Driver Enters Plea to Manslaughter and Unlawful Removal of Body Near Hinton

Hinton Record

Juan Manuel Gonzales Jr., 41,, pled guilty to manslaughter and unlawful removal of a dead body near Hinton.

An Arizona truck driver agreed Monday, May 8, to spend 12 years in an Oklahoma prison for killing a prostitute in 2014 and dumping her nude body along Interstate 40 just east of Hinton.

Juan Manuel Gonzalez Jr., 40, pleaded guilty in Caddo County District Court to first-degree manslaughter and unlawful removal of a dead body.

In the plea agreement Gonzalez specified a 42-year sentence. However, investigators agreed to suspend 30 years as Gonzalez will be on probation for 30 years after his release.

The victim, Veneranda Flores, 24, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, went missing on December 21, 2014. She was going to the movies with a friend but never showed.

The body was found extremely decomposed by State Transportation Department workers who were clearing brush along the roadside on April 7, 2015. The victim was identified through DNA last August. Gonzalez was arrested a few days later at his apartment in Glendale, Arizona.
