Our thoughts are with the people of West, TX with the explosion at the fertilizer plant late Wednesday. Jeffery Sanders of Gatesville along with his girlfriend, Emberly Ballew, were at the nursing home helping to evacuate the residents when the explosion went off. Jeffery was on the side of the nursing home away from the blast however his girlfriend wasn’t as lucky. She was hurt seriously in the explosion but is going to be OK according to Carlton Sanders, Jeffery’s father. Didn’t surprise me when I heard Jeffery was at the nursing home trying to help. Jeffery has always been one to go out of his way to help his neighbor.
