    Over the last couple of weeks someone has been circulating so-called BP oil claim forms in the Lake Charles area. While man, if not most medical claims associated with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill have been settled, someone is holding meetings around the Lake area trying to get people to sign up. But they're not too forthcoming when it comes to saying who they are or who they represent.

HALLSVILLE, TX (KLTV) -

Ryan Hamilton’s Field is still unfinished and his family is asking for donations in order to see the project through.

A baseball field had been designated as a memorial to Ryan Hamilton, a talented baseball star, but it was never finished due to a lack of funding. Hamilton was a student at Hallsville High School who was killed in a car crash 18 years ago.

Just recently Ryan Hamilton’s grandfather passed away and in lieu of gifts or flowers, the obituary asked for donations to Ryan’s field.

Nearly $3,500 has been raised, but it is still just a fraction of the total $15,000 cost to finish the field. His mother hopes soon she will have a new memorial for her son.
