Unlicensed, Uninsured Drivers Are Still A Problem
Friday, July 03, 2015
On May 29, a 1999 Ford Taurus crashed into the Precure Electric building injuring its driver, Tomas Saban, 24, an illegal alien from Guatemala who lacked both insurance on the vehicle and a valid driver’s license.

Before that a similar accident occurred May 24 on West American Blvd., while other incidents and accidents involving Guatemalan drivers have also occurred.

But, according to Muleshoe Police Lt. Benny Parker, the root problem isn’t because the drivers are illegal aliens, it’s because the drivers are unlicensed.

During the past year, there have been 141 citations issued by Muleshoe Police Department officers for operating a motor vehicle without a valid license. Fifty-two of that number have been issued within the past six months, the majority of which were to Muleshoe-area residents.

The District 2-3A softball coaches met to chose the 2015 All-District Team. After the Lady Mules defeated the Shallowater Fillies twice in one week to claim the number one seed for the Texas State Softball Playoffs the Lady Mules received much more respect.

“We were so young when the season started,” said Lady Mule coach Erin White. “We knew we would have a lot of fun but they really came together behind the leadership provided by our seniors.”
