Editor’s note: As this story illustrates, public corruption has been around forever across Hidalgo County. Human beings are, well, human (all flawed; some worse than others). Politics just makes it that much harder for a good person to stay honest and true. Power corrupts; absolute power corrects absolutely, or so goes the old saying.



Macario Villanueva, 100, died Sunday, November 19, 2017, at his residence in Alamo.
