STORYBOOK TIME — Mother’s Day Out students from Eldorado (front two rows) and Sonora Elementary (back rows) enjoyed a day at the First Methodist Church Pumpkin Patch last Thursday. The children not only got to play games, they were treated to a story called “The Runaway Pumpkin,” read by Stephanie Sullivan.   LUPE ELIZONDO | THE ELDORADO SUCCESS



New security doors and camers will soon be installed on Eldorado school campuses after the Schleicher County ISD board of trustees voted Monday night to spend $40,000 on the project.

Brady Gilbert and Scott Gibbs, representing VGI Technology of San Angelo, were on hand for the meeting. The men described a proposed security system, including automatic door locks that will allow each of the district’s three campuses to be locked down with the touch of a button. The door locks can also be programmed to open and close at a particular time.

Gilbert and Gibbs were also proposing the installation of a series of 22 digital video cameras at strategic points around the three campuses.



The Van Horn Eagles wasted a lot of effort last Friday night trying to catch Justin Ochoa. But, try as they might, the Red and Gray clad Eagles from Culberson County just couldn’t run him down as Ochoa ran at will through the Van Horn defense.

Ochoa carried the ball 20 times for 285 yards and six touchdowns as he led Eldorado’s Green and White Eagles to a 48-38 victory in the district opener for both teams.






Christmas lights are coming this year to Schleicher County Courthouse.

Chamber Pride Committee members Holly Griffin, Cherie Sproul and Nancy Lester met with County Commissioners on Monday and requested funding to help pay for Christmas lighting to be professionally installed on the Courthouse and on one pecan tree on the Courthouse square.

Holly Griffin said Farmer’s Daughter of San Angelo will install white stringed lights on the courthouse and later take down the lights. Also one pecan tree will be completely lit.
