County asks support from Austin leaders

DeWitt County is seeking support in Austin and approved a new leader for the city-county health department at their meeting Monday at the courthouse.

A letter to State Senator Lois Kolkhorst of Brenham and State Representative Geanie Morrison of Victoria is asking for their support on a proposed bill to help fund local road reconstruction and repairs.

Written by Judge Daryl Fowler and approved by commissioners court, the letter refers to an ‘old Attorney General opinion’ that allows the state to keep lease money from county owned and maintained right-of-ways.

The letter explains when county owned right-of-ways are leased for oil and gas exploration, that revenue goes to the general fund of the state.

Sen. Carlos Uresti has introduced a bill that will allow that right-of-way lease revenue to go to the county of origin. That money could then be used to make repairs to roads damaged during oil exploration efforts.

"It will never happen to me." - Shattered Dreams

It was only a mock of a head on collision with another vehicle that resulted in two deaths. The whole scene was staged but the impact was no less real.

Wesley Clayton, president of the Western Days Association said, “You can’t imagine, even in this scenario with the parents and students going through it, the emotions that come out. We know that it is not real. We try to make it as real as possible. It is very traumatic.”

The Yorktown Western Days Association worked together with emergency responders and related businesses to bring “Shattered Dreams” to Yorktown on March 4 and 5.

Maddie Bryand and Raegan Cunningham were selected to be part of the staged wreck.

Before the event, while being prepped, Bryand said, “I am kind of nervous. Shaking. I just want to get to it and see what it will be like.”
