New Boston city council hears community concerns over proposed landfill expansion

A number of New Boston residents exercised their right to freedom of speech by sharing their concerns about the proposed New Boston landfill expansion at the Tuesday, February 17, 2015, New Boston city council meeting.
Nineteen residents and visitors spoke to the council and an audience of over sixty in a meeting that overflowed the council chambers and had to be moved to the community center.
Resident comments ranged from concerns for water quality and drinking water purity to health problems affecting residents in neighborhoods near the landfill.  Lowered property values, flooding, sediment, odor, buzzards, and a decline in community livability were also concerns.
Speaker Melvin McDaniel said he came to New Boston twenty-five years ago and “fell in love with New Boston.”

BREAKING NEWS--State cancels plan to send violent sex offenders to Maud

By Bobby Horn Jr.

Special to the Tribune

A plan to utilize a facility near Maud to treat those who have been convicted of sex-related crimes, which has come under fire from West Bowie County residents, has been cancelled.

Catherine Betts, with the Cass County Community Supervision and Corrections Department (CSCD) also known as Adult Probation, said that she was contacted late Feb. 23 and told by the State of Texas that they will not use the facility.

A meeting planned at the facility on March 1 has been cancelled, Betts said.

Betts attributes the state’s reversal to a concerted efforts by local citizens who organized a petition drive, took the issue to their own county officials and who publicized their outrage through social media.

FM 991 TO BE CLOSED TO THRU TRAFFIC BEGINNING MONDAY

Motorists who normally travel FM 991 near Akin Creek will need to find an alternate route beginning Monday, March 2.  Crews will be closing the road to replace the bridge crossing Akin Creek just north of the intersection with US 67. The project also includes widening a section of FM 991 and installing safety lighting on US 67 near the intersection. The work is expected to take about four months to complete.

Traffic will officially be detoured on a signed route through Redwater on US 67 and FM 991, but motorists are free to use alternate local routes. Portable message boards will be placed near the intersection beforehand to warn motorists of the scheduled road closure.  The construction schedule and road closure can change due to inclement weather or other unforeseen problems.

Citizens react to proposed housing of sexual predators in Maud

By Kenny Mitchell

Publisher

A proposed plan to move violent sex offenders into Bowie County is drawing the ire of concerned citizens, none more than the residents of Maud, where the offenders could possibly be located.

The proposed plan concerns the Northeast Texas Restitution Center in Maud, a facility that is owned by the Cass County Community Supervision and Correction Department.

The director of the facility in Maud, Catherine Betts, is planning on housing offenders that have been placed in the Civil Commitment program in this facility. 

Cass County’s decision to propose housing these offenders at the facility in Maud has prompted local citizens to mount a petition against the move and a public meeting has been called for citizens to voice their concerns to the operators of the facility and the State of Texas.

Winter Weather Warning

The National Weather Service Office in Shreveport has issued a Hazardous Weather statement as an arctic air mass is expected to move into Northeast Texas tomorrow and bring the possibility of ice and snow Sunday evening going into Monday.

The warning does contain most of Northeast Texas, including Bowie, Red River and Cass counties.

According to the agency, tonight will be windy ahead of the cold front that will blow into the area on Saturday.

Thunderstorms will be likely on Saturday as the front comes through with the possibility of damaging winds and large hail, however, an isolated tornado threat cannot be ruled out.

While the threat for severe weather will diminish after the front passes, rain, a very cold rain, will continue through the nighttime hours.

That rain is predicted to transition to freezing rain and sleet late on Sunday across most of the area and could switch to snow Monday afternoon.

Congressman Ratcliffe Confident For The Future of The Red River Army Depot

In a visit to the Red River Army Depot and Texarkana College, Congressman John Ratcliffe (R-TX) met with local community and business leaders in the Bowie County area. The Congressman’s Texarkana office followed these meetings with an open house, attended by a large number of constituents. 

“The priorities of the people of our district are my priorities,” said Ratcliffe. “Every time I go to cast my vote on the floor of the House, I think of the 700,000 people I have the privilege of representing. For me to be the best Congressman I can be, I feel that it’s important to hear directly from constituents and develop personal relationships with the people I represent. I’m grateful for every opportunity I have to visit with folks in the Texarkana area, and look forward to returning soon.”
