'Coach' retires

by Alexandria Randolph

‘Coach’ Larry Berkman is selling CoachWash, his car cleaning business after ten years.

CoachWash is now Wingman Car Wash, owned by Dustin Wing and John Paige of Wingman Oil Change Center.

“I’ve owned CoachWash since 2004. Wingman wanted to expand their business. They made an offer and I accepted,” Berkman said. “It’s been a great business. We’ve had a lot of good years. It seemed like a good time to move into another arena.”

Berkman co-owned the car wash with Dale Brown and Jeff Bingham.

Berkman, who previously served as a Marble Falls High School coach for 30 years, said he will still be involved with the Marble Falls community including his position on the Marble Falls ISD School Board.

“I’m going to take time off, but I still have something to contribute to the community,” Berkman said. “I’m not ready to go out to pasture yet.”

Berkman said he thinks Wing and Paige will take good care of his business.

Don't fan the fire

Firefighter Kelly Oestreich of Marble Falls Fire Rescue had to make sure the source of a brush fire was cold before firefighters could leave the scene. A landowner’s burn pile got out of control, scorching 2 acres of his property in Mill Creek Wednesday.

First responders urge caution in the coming dry months after several grass fires – one spanning roughly 50 acres – occurred in the past week. The most recent fire took place in Mill Creek on Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. While the fire only consumed two acres, it threatened a structure and was dangerously close to igniting a hillside of dead cedar trees, Marble Falls Area Volunteer firefighters said.
