Around 7:30pm last evening the Lampasas County Sheriff’s Office got a call from Lometa, reporting an incident with a BNSF train that was passing through Lometa. 
A Lometa pedestrian, 27 yr old David Allen Sutton, evidently fell partially under the train, severed an arm and seriously injured a leg. A Scott and White helicopter evacuated the injured man from Lometa Regional Park and took him to the Temple hospital. He had been discovered along the track by passing pedestrians and sketchy information seems to point to his possibly trying to “jump” the train and slipped off, but that has not been confirmed.

The Hornets jumped out in the lead early and never looked back as they beat Lampasas 38-20. The Badgers did come alive in the 4th quarter with two TDs but it was too little-too late. What happened in the unexpected Badger loss is altogether dependent on how you saw it but Coach Brian Emerson lamented, “We did as much as Gatesville did to make them look good.”
District 13-4A-1 is now led by the Burnet Bulldogs as they beat a strong Robinson team Friday night. Robinson, who had convincingly

The Friday Night Lights will be on the Lampasas Badgers at Gatesville tonight as they meet the Hornets for district game number two. Both Lampasas and Gatesville lost their district openers last week and both are hoping to change their fortunes. Defensive Coach Guerro told us the Hornets are a 50/50 passrun offense and they do have a good offense in spite of the fact that they are 2-4 in their overall win-loss this year. Their passing
