Game Warden to the Rescue — San Patricio County Game Warden Albert Flores recently used some of his training at a local Luby’s Cafeteria. He performed the Heimlich maneuver on a woman who was choking. The maneuver was successful, and everyone went back to eating lunch.

Not Playing Games — A Hill County game warden assisted Texas Department of Public Safety Special Crimes, Texas Rangers, the FBI, and Bosque County Sheriff’s Department with serving multiple search and arrest warrants at gambling rooms within Bosque County. There were nine establishments targeted. Six felony arrests were made and more than $26,000 seized in the operation.
