No change in County elected salaries

BY George Garza

The Orange County Commissioners Court voted to adopt last year’s salary schedule for Orange County’s elected officials. All County elected officials will maintain their current pay rates in the upcoming fiscal year. That includes the members of Commissioners’ Court, much to the consternation of County Judge Dean T. Crooks.

Judge Crooks was hoping there would be support among some members of the Commissioners’ Court to back his long time proposal for everyone on the Commissioners Court only to take a reduction in pay for the coming budget year.

Irish colonizers end up on opposing sides

By Bartee Haile

A pair of ambitious Irishmen applied for a giant land grant in sparsely settled Texas on Sep. 20, 1826. They did not want much, just the entire coastal plain between the Sabine and the Nueces!
