Crews with the City of Tyler continue to work at the intersection of Rice and Old Bullard roads following a sinkhole that was found Thursday night. Traffic is moving in the area, but at a slower speed. The City of Tyler said Rice Rd. between South Broadway Ave. and Old Bullard Rd. will remain closed until Tuesday or when all repairs can be made, and the safety of the asphalt can be determined.
The suspects arrested include Jose Hernandez, 37, of Tyler; Matthew Organ, 44, of Whitehouse; Delano Roosevelt Phelps, 89, of Tyler; James Amos, 54, of Flint; Charles McLarty III, 75, of Flint; and Monterrey Lobo, 47, of Jacksonville.
To control the problem, a contraceptive bait was created and placed on the market in June of 2021. And after a year and a half, the creators of the bait say ranchers are seeing the benefits.
The feral hog birth control bait is called HogStop and it affects male sperm production.
A new report from the Hibbs Institute at the University of Texas at Tyler shows just how much poor health outcomes in rural counties can affect the entire region. The latest Hibbs Health Index was created by examining factors like smoking, obesity, and premature death rates.
