Local man a highway hero


Dear Editor,

He was on the way to work on FM 532 at 5 a.m. and almost ran into a huge tree blown over by the storm and covered three-fourths of the road. He said it was not easy to see that time of the morning, so he stayed there with emergency flashing lights on and called the
After an hour of guarding the dangerous situation a Highway Department work crew finally showed up and took charge of tree removal with flashing safety lights.
I consider Daryl “Gator” Aubin a Gonzales County hero for protecting other drivers going to work on a dark wet stormy morning.
