Civic center to close overnight


In perhaps the first time in its history, the Mineola Civic Center gates will be locked at night. The move is in response to vehicle damage done to the civic center grounds sometime overnight Sunday. The gates, for vehicles and foot traffic, will be locked each night at 9 p.m. and reopen at 6 a.m. Police were searching for a white pickup, possibly a Ford F-250 King Ranch edition, thought to be responsible for the damage.
