In news with Kaitlin Moore, many across the Concho Valley honored the lives that were lost 15 years ago, on Sept. 11, 2001.

The San Angelo Stadium was the host to team RWB’s 9/11 memorial stair climb.

The climb began Sunday morning at about 7:46, which is the exact moment the first plane struck the North tower of the World Trade Center in New York City years ago.

Audio of police scanners from that fateful day played over the loudspeaker while the names of those who died were displayed on the scoreboard.

Team RWB member, George Orr, says events like these can show the youth what it means to be a first responder.

Orr says, “The younger people can see and learn these jobs are important. I can be a first responder and I can make a difference and if there’s something bad happening I can be the one who gets in there and I can save someone.”

Those unable to participate in the stair climb were also given the option to run on the track at the stadium as well.

There is a new place in Wall to get lost in this Falls season.

The owners decided to create the two-acre corn field maze, called the circle  s corn maze and pumpkin patch.

They have more than 50,000 pounds of pumpkins from a field Northeast of Lubbock.

In addition to pumpkins, there is a corn launching canon and other games.

Co-owner, Lindsey Schaertl, says “the Concho Valley has never seen anything like this and we wanted a good family friendly event that families could come and enjoy and we hope that they do and they just have a great time out here.”

The circle s corn maze and pumpkin patch on Bean road in Wall opened Saturday for the Fall season.
