After just nine months on the job, Coryell County Extension Agent Vanessa Casad has submitted her resignation to return home to Idaho. “I absolutely love it here,” Casad said. “Everyone has been very friendly and helpful...I can’t believe we have so many volunteers. I wish I could pick up all of Coryell County and move them back with me. “But my family is not here, and I can’t be away from them.”
A preliminary autopsy in the death of Joey Alvarado Saenz failed to reveal the cause of death. Coryell County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Joe Blakley said investigators are waiting for the toxicology report, hoping it will shed light on Saenz’ death.

The Gatesville Hornets played sound volleyball on Tuesday night against Conference 6A Killeen High, and it showed on the scoreboard. The ladies of Black and Gold won in convincing fashion in four sets, 25-14, 24-26, 25-22, 25-16, over the Lady Kangaroos at Gatesville High School. The only blemish on the evening occurred in the second set, when Gatesville let a 13-5 lead go by the wayside, and they ended up losing the set, 26-24, to tie the match up at 1-1.
For the fifth consecutive year, the First Baptist Church in Gatesville is providing a pre-game meal for the Gatesville Hornets prior to home football games. Vance Stephens coordinates the event and different church members are in charge for each of the five home games.
