Any well-known programs are known for their consistency.  When referring to the C.H. Yoe High School Band, there is no better word to describe what is brought to the field each and every performance.  

On Saturday from the area D marching contest from Hewitt Midway, the band added to their long tradition of excellence by punching their fourth straight trip to the state marching contest in San Antonio.  

“It’s a long day and it’s asking a lot from the students, but seeing them put up two greats shows is very exciting,” said band director Craig George following the big announcement.  

The band first performed in the preliminary round of 24 bands at 11:30 a.m.  After that performance, the band traveled back to Cameron to freshen up, eat and work out a few points in the show before heading back up to Hewitt.

Little River Healthcare to move clinic to hospital

What seems like a minor move could make big waves in Cameron’s medical services.

The Little River Healthcare Cameron Medical Clinic will open its doors at its new location on Oct. 30 inside the LRH Cameron Hospital. The clinic currently resides across 8th Street from the hospital, both on North Crockett Ave.

“By moving the clinic to inside the hospital, we create one-stop-shop for all our patients,” said Troy Zinn, CEO of the Cameron Hospital. “Let’s say a patient visits the ER for something that their insurance doesn’t consider an emergency. Instead of treating them at the ER at expensive ER costs, if it’s during clinic business hours, we can just walk them down the hall to the clinic for treatment covered by their insurance.”

Zinn said that by the same token, when a patient needing an x-ray visits the clinic, they can receive an x-ray just down the hall, rather than setting up an x-ray appointment for another day at another building.
