Los Angeles Dodgers make history on Saturday against Mets
The Los Angeles Dodgers are chasing history and competing with one of the greatest teams the sport of baseball had ever seen. Mets manager Terry Collins indicated that the lefty needs to push through even on days when he does not feel his best.

KETK crews on scene say Upshur County Rural Electric Cooperative was on scene Sunday taking a look at the power line the boys hit. According to the game warden's office, it was an officially sanctioned scouting event. The catamaran was reportedly on fire with it's sails up when the Texas wildlife officers converged upon the scene. The older boys, ages 16, and 18, were found in the water, and bystanders were able to bring the younger boy, 11, onto a boat and begin administering CPR until rescuers arrived.

Both reportedly suffered severe injuries. They said one of the boys was life flighted to a hospital in Shreveport.

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's boating accident reconstruction and mapping team is investigating the accident, the parks and wildlife statement stated.

Lightfoot says the preliminary investigation indicates the sailboat came in contact with the power line.

"We are aware of an accident that occurred on Saturday that involved a number of our local Boy Scouts. We will support them in any way that we can", he said.

"And I have told him that I want him here with us, selfishly, but I understand if he needs to go home".

As a community together, we continue to pray and stand by to assist as needed.
