Toys for Tots drive underway

The Bowie County Citizens Tribune is partnering once again with the United States Marine Corps Reserves to collect toys for children in need. Experiencing the joy of opening presents on Christmas morning is a privilege for many youngsters and unfortunately not all children in our community are able to enjoy such an experience. Through the donation of toys from people in our community, those less fortunate children get a chance to be blessed with the joy of Christmas.
The objective of the Toys for Tots Program conducted by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves is to collect and distribute new, unwrapped toys for those less fortunate children throughout the community in hopes of bringing them hope and cheer during the Holiday season.
Those needing to apply to receive toys for their children can pick up an application at New Boston Housing Authority, Texas Health and Human Services, or DeKalb City Hall. Applications must be turned in by December 1, 2016.

High mast lighting to go up on I-30

High mast lighting will replace the typical street lights at several interchanges along Interstate 30 in Bowie and Titus Counties during the coming year, according to plans approved in November by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

“The new lighting will be have banks of bright LED lights on masts 150 feet tall,” said Rebecca Wells, district traffic engineer for TxDOT in Atlanta. “This helps illuminate the entire interchange instead of just around the typical light poles currently used.”

The new high mast lighting will be installed at interchanges with I-30 in Bowie County at FM 561, FM 990 and SH 98; and in Titus County at Spur 185, US 271, Bus. 271, FM 1402 and FM 1001.

South Texas Illumination of Winona, TX, was awarded the contract for these projects with a bid of $1.8 million.

Work on the projects should begin in February of next year and take about 15 months to complete, Wells said.

Cards headed overseas for Christmas

Thanks to the overwhelming response from many of our local school districts and day care centers, the Tribune was glad to hand out Veterans Day cards to Veterans at our local long term care facilities on Friday. Residents of Inspire in New Boston and Ponderosa in DeKalb with military service each received a bundle of cards on Veterans Day.

Also, we have hundreds of cards that will be making their way to active duty service men and women in time for Christmas. The Tribune has partnered with a couple of organizations that will make sure the cards get delivered before the holiday and all of the cards that were sent in will be dispersed around the globe to make Christmas just a little brighter for those brave men and women that will not be home with their families.

Cass County Voters Choose Not to Join Texarkana College District

Complete but unofficial election results from Cass County, Texas, indicate voters chose not to approve the proposition on today’s ballot to join Texarkana College’s district. The proposed measure was an invitation for Cass County voters to decide whether to partner with TC to achieve the College’s highest priority of increasing the number of people with higher education credentials in our region.

“Texarkana College would like to thank the residents of Cass County for considering our annexation measure at the polls today,” President James Henry Russell said. “Though voters in the area chose not to join the TC district, the College remains committed to moving the needle toward a college-going culture in Cass County and our region.”

For many residents, this measure opened up a critical dialogue to discuss and evaluate the goals and priorities for Cass County’s future.

We can also assure Texans that we adjust our level of vigilance to meet any potential or emerging threats, and will also adjust our security measures as threats warrant.
