County goes out for bids to repair Courthouse marble

By George Garza

 

After nearly three years of unsightly scaffolding blocking the front door and the entire three floor frontage of the Orange County Courthouse, the Orange County Commissioners’ Court have finally authorized the County Purchasing Agent to go out for bid proposals regarding the repair and restoration of the marble siding and windows of the front of the Courthouse building.

 

For all that time the front doors of the Orange County Courthouse in Orange have been closed and blocked by a massive three-story scaffolding surrounding the entrance and extending three stories above to the roof of the building. The reason for the pipe work scaffolding is to hold up the Italian marble stonework that enhances the entire entrance of the historic building.

“We haven’t seen it …”

By George Garza

 

Orange County Attorney John Kimbrough is frustrated that people believe that the County Attorney’s office has refused to prosecute any new case with regards to the murder of Kathy Page.

 

On Wednesday afternoon of this week, Mr. Kimbrough said to a writer with The Vidorian by telephone, “Rod (Carroll) was in my office this week and told me he would have the case to me in a week-and-a-half. We had told him in writing that we would prosecute this case if it’s ready. But we have to see it. We haven’t seen it. They’ve got this new evidence, a new witness. We have to have that, we have to evaluate that.

Everybody decorated a little more this year so it was very exciting. And all of the space shuttles! It was so cool! I loved all of their ideas and their originality! I really enjoyed that!

Fulton family hopes evidence results in trial

The Vidor Police Explorers were recently joined at one of their meetings by a representative of The Garth House of Beaumont. The young men and women of the Police Explorer Troop had a wonderful opportunity to learn about how

 

The Garth House works with young children to help them describe physical and sexual abuse that they have suffered. They also learned how The Garth House works with many local law enforcement agencies and with the State of Texas Child Protective Services Department in assisting those agencies in their own investigation into child physical or sexual abuse. The explorers also learned about how The Garth House is invaluable to our community by providing counseling to the young victims and the non-offending family members. Most importantly, they learned that The Garth House is an independent organization, and in being so, The Garth House must rely on the generosity of others to provide all of those valuable services to our community.
