County judge, road supervisor at odds over equipment funds

BY MELISSA PERNER

Discussion over missing equipment funds dominated the budget workshop portion of Monday’s regular commissioners’ court meeting.

County Judge Fred Deaton said the money was moved to the road and bridge fund, due to a recommendation from the 2016 Audit completed by Eckert & Company.

The road and bridge budget has a road and bridge fund and an equipment replacement fund. Deaton said the money from the equipment replacement fund was placed into the road and bridge fund.

Congressman makes stop in Ozona

BY MELISSA PERNER

When it comes to being faced with opposition, Will Hurd has two words for his challengers: “good luck.”

Last week, the Republican Congressman traveled across his district making 20 stops for this third annual “DC2DQ” event. He stopped at Ozona’s Dairy Queen on Aug. 9, where he was met with local and area citizens.

This was Hurd’s second visit this year to Ozona. He attended and spoke at the local Memorial Day ceremony in May.

While President Trump’s name was not mentioned by Hurd during the visit, the Congressman did talk about using technology to create a “smart wall” instead of building an expensive physical concrete wall as proposed by Trump.

Lions focused on new season

By MELISSA PERNER The ozona stockman

The Ozona Lions are gearing up for another football season, in hopes to make a run for the district championship. The Lions held their first day of workouts Monday. Athletic Director and Head Coach Kyle Freeman said players were “enthusiastic” about starting the new season.

“The experienced returners looked very good and crisp,” Freeman said of the first day. The Lions lost a large group of seniors last year, so Freeman said this year’s varsity team will be competing with players that were on the JV squad last season.

By MELISSA PERNER The ozona stockman

Asking the state to address a broken school finance system, CCCCSD Superintendent Raul Chavarria spoke to the Texas House Ways and Means Committee during a hearing last week in Austin. The committee addressed a series of bills on school finance and property taxes on Aug. 2, including House Bill 285 filed by State Rep. Andrew Murr, R-Junction.
