Casa Ole on Twin City suffered minor damage after a neon light fixture shorted out under an awning about 2:30 a.m. Monday, according to information from the Port Arthur Fire Department. Next Up The eatery is currently being repaired after tropical Storm Harvey’s flooding.
Barça’s scouts have followed him closely in recent weeks. Urban Ortega was at the semi-final between Germany and France when Hector once again impressed. He’s good technically, joins in attacks and is solid defensively, too. Hector represents another talented left-back on the market. There are other more affordable options, but the German is liked a lot. Upd. at 15:30 Jonas Hector was one of the sensations of Euro 2016. German coach Joachim Low made him his first choice left-back and it worked out really well after an expectational season with Cologne. CEST The option to sign Hector has been on the table with fixed numbers for a week and Barça know they have to either sign him or rule him out in the coming days. At the moment, many at the club lament the decision to have not signed Raphael Guerreiro, with the Portugal left-back moving to Borussia Dortmund for 13 million euros before the Euros. It’s led to interest from across Europe in the defender. Barça already had good reports on him and have followed him during this summer’s tournament as he confirmed his status as a player of a very hight level. The Catalan club have the situation under control and must now take a decision because Hector has big offers to leave Cologne and wants to sort out his future. Albert Masnou Barça have a long list of potential full-back signings, but Hector ticks the most boxes. His price would be around 18 million euros and he’s versatile, as he can even play in midfield. His agents have spoke with the club and have advised them there are offers from the Premier League, with Tottenham and Liverpool also interested. Barça are thinking it over. Cologne have already made it clear that Hector is on the market and he will leave because they don’t want to hold him back, although they are trying to hold out for a more money. Everything will depend on the player’s decision. The challenge of playing for Barça is attractive, but he doesn’t want to close other doors. 12/07/2016
