CORPUS CHRISTI - John Andrew Villarreal and his brother, Jonathan Villarreal, are the kinds of neighbors you want when you're in trouble.

Both were leaving their home on Barrera St. Sunday night when they heard their neighbor, Martin Perry, yelling for help. Perry was being attacked by a swarm of bees. The brothers jumped in and doused the man with water, but it wasn't long before they got into trouble.

"I was...dodging [the bees]...I couldn't take it. Twenty seconds there, I was going crazy. I took off running," said John Andrew Villarreal.

The bees Villarreal is referring to mercilessly attacked everyone and everything in the area, including two dogs. One of them didn't survive.

"The bees stung him about...100 times," explained Villarreal.

Days after the attack, Villarreal is dealing with minor swelling. He told KRIS 6 that Perry was released from the ICU and is improving.

Grant to Pay for Upgrades at Hazel Bazemore Park http://www.kristv.com/news/grant-to-pay-for-upgrades-at-hazel-bazemore-park/ http://www.kristv.com/news/grant-to-pay-for-upgrades-at-hazel-bazemore-park/ Community Thu, 18 Sep 2014 7:06:08 PM Grant to Pay for Upgrades at Hazel Bazemore Park

CORPUS CHRISTI - Birdwatchers could soon be flocking to Hazel Bazemore Park to enjoy new nature trails there.

The county is getting a $57,000 grant from Corpus Christi Bays and Estuaries to pay for those upgrades.

The engineering company is finishing designs now. The trails should be complete in the next few months.

Today we also learned of another much needed upgrade to the park, a boat ramp, one that's complete with correct safety signage and better access for boaters.

<Edward Herrera, Director of Community Services Inland Parks Nueces County
"we're going to spend about $400,000 in developing it and making it deeper and providing for a better parking area over there. Right now, it's a short ramp, but this will lengthen it by about 50 feet," says Edward Herrera, Director of Community Services Inland Parks Nueces County.

The park hopes to start the boat ramp project by the end of the year.

You'll recall, the park recently built a hawk watch and another bird watch. They'll also build a new 200 foot walkway for people to better observe nature. That project should be built by the end of next March.

Mariachi Music Featured This Weekend at Selena Auditorium http://www.kristv.com/news/mariachi-music-featured-this-weekend-at-selena-auditorium-379545/ http://www.kristv.com/news/mariachi-music-featured-this-weekend-at-selena-auditorium-379545/ Community Fri, 12 Sep 2014 7:20:17 AM Candace Torrez Mariachi Music Featured This Weekend at Selena Auditorium

CORPUS CHRISTI - The World-famous Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán returns to Corpus Christi for the 7th Annual Corpus Christi Mariachi Music Festival.

Since its inception, the group has been the heart of the Mariachi Music Fest. Most believe that Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán is, without question, the most important ensemble in the history of mariachi music. For over half a century, this group has been considered the finest mariachi in the world ("el mejor mariachi del mundo"), a title it continues to uphold.

Originally founded in 1898 in the southern Jalisco village of Tecalitlán, the band recently celebrated its 115th anniversary. No other mariachi in history has had a trajectory or influence remotely comparable to that of Vargas. Its current generation represents the state of the art in mariachi music: world-class vocalists and instrumentalists, flawless ensemble work, impeccable taste in arrangements and repertoire, and spellbinding showmanship, all while preserving the traditional folk music of the group's rural origins.

Mariachi Vargas in concert is presented by KRIS Communications to help bring quality cultural arts programming to the Coastal Bend area.

The 7th Annual Corpus Christi Mariachi Music Fest will be held at the American Bank Center Selena Auditorium this Saturday, September 13th at 7:30 PM. Tickets may be purchased at www.americanbankcenter.com or by calling (361) 826-4700.
