BROADWAY BAPTIST CHURCH
Itâ€™s homecoming weekend in Sweetwater. Graduates from all years will gather in town, have parties, reminisce and enjoy each otherâ€™s company once again. (By the way, it is true, the older you get the better you were.) There will be a parade, kids will enjoy candy and then Sweetwater will take on Wall High School. GO MUSTANGS! It will be a great weekend of fun and festivities for all.
First Baptist Church Sweetwater welcomes Buckner Internationalâ€™s President and CEO, Albert Reyes, as their guest speaker at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 22 in the church sanctuary located at 213 East Third Street.
Three people recently entered guilty pleas during 32nd Judicial District Court proceedings.
Two people were transported to Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital on Thursday between 11 a.m. and noon after a wreck occurred along the US 84 Interstate 20 split, just east of the bridge in the west bound lanes.
One patient was in stable condition and the other was in guarded condition at the time of their transport by Sweetwater emergency services.Â The driver of a Chevrolet truck pulling a van lost control on the rain slicked road and struck the guardrail.
The Sweetwater Fire Department received a call on Thursday afternoon from a person driving a train.
The caller stated that smoke was coming out of the back car, the engine and that flames were shooting out the side of the train car. The train had stopped to change crews when the engine had shut off and the car that was on fire stopped over the Musgrove overpass.
Firefighters worked with engineers and company members to extinguish the blaze. Hydraulic oil caught the west bound train on fire.
