DISD hires new JH counselor
Dublin school board met in special session at 7 a.m. Monday and after a 33-minute closed meeting, voting 5-2 to hire Paige Johnson as a junior high counselor.
She has been a coach at the junior high as well as a teacher and is a Dublin High School graduate.
Johnson succeeds Sharon McNutt who is retiring at the end of the year.
The issue was not resolved during the regular monthly meeting of the board with a 3-3 vote, making the special meeting necessary.
Voting for her elevation to counselor status were Charlie Bradberry, Jeff Weaver, Mike Jurney, Pat Leatherwood and Lathes Towns. Voting against were Adrianne Fails and Sue Lewis.
Dublin taking care of need
A large part of holiday get-togethers is gathering for a meal so as we enter the holiday season, attention turns to those who can’t always afford to put food on the table.
Larger food banks from metropolitan areas are reporting an increased demand and shortages, but Dublin food banks seem to be staying strong thanks to the generosity of the community.
Texas schools realigned, Lingleville players make all-district and Much More!
Turning Back The Pages
100 YEARS AGO
Dec. 5, 1913
Deputy Sheriff Si Bradford, at Strawn in Palo Pinto County, shot a fatally wounded Frank Reeves, a saloon keeper. Bradford had been summoned to the saloon to quiet a disturbance and as he entered the door, Reeves shot at the officer with a pistol delivering two flesh wounds. The officer then shot one time, striking Reeves in the stomach. He was taken to the hospital where he died. Bradford was placed under bond for the Grand Jury.
The court of civil appeals handed down a decision affirming the judgement in the verdict of $6,700 rendered in favor of Mrs. Nick Keith against the Frisco railroad for the death of her son, Ed Keith, by being run over by the cars at Harbin.
