Bill Pearce, third from left, was deemed the Big Winner in the Bacon Bingo contest, held at the recent Wild Hog Explosion, a fundraiser for the Bandera County Public Library. Library Director John Hegemier presented Pearce with a check totaling $1,000. The library received $3,000 from the always-anticipated contest. From left, representing sponsor Church’s Chicken was Mike Burvato, San Antonio general manager; and individual sponsors, Jan Grimes, president of the library board of directors, and her husband, Precinct 1 Commissioner Bob Grimes. When asked what he planned to do with his windfall, Pearce replied, “I want to be first in line to ride that ferris wheel when it’s installed in the City of Bandera.”
