Commissioners hire law firm to assist with Shannon contract

At their Tuesday meeting, the commissioners approved hiring Bickerstaff, Heath, Delgado and Ascota law firm out of Austin to assist in contract negotiations with Shannon Medical Center.

In an earlier meeting this year, the commissioners had approved to increasing the payment for the Family Health Center of Ozona from $500,000 to $1.2 million in order to keep the facility running as is with 24-hour care.

County Judge Fred Deaton said in a meeting with Shannon Officials there was discussion about specialists coming down to the Ozona Clinic from San Angelo.

Deaton said a heart specialist is in the works to come to Ozona at least once a month.

He also said Shannon may cut $75,000 out of the costs.

“It’s a hard pill to swallow,” Deaton said.

The commissioners discussed the White Mesa Wind Farm project. The project is seeking to add megawatts and sell it as a bigger project. The commissioners took no action on the item.

“It’s always good to get the win. We did not play well though on either side of the ball. Too many mistakes and turnovers. Despite the turnovers we did move the ball well at times and there were some bright spots,” said Athletic Director and Head Coach Kyle Freeman.

The Lions (6-2, 2-0 in district) rushed for 124 yards and passed for 256 yards for 380 yards total on the night with five turnovers.

Sheriff, commissioners questioned about recent vehicle burglaries at Lion Stadium

A local citizen addressed Crockett County Sheriff Robert Rodriguez and the Crockett County Commissioners’ Court about vehicles recently burglarized at Lion Stadium during a home football game.

Ira Childress spoke the court during Monday’s regular meeting. He said his vehicle was one of the ones broken into, along with other vehicles from Ozona and Crane.

Childress asked if additional lighting to be added to the west side of the parking lot at the stadium and that if a sheriff’s deputy could be over at the parking lot during the game.

“There’s a lot of people not happy about the whole situation because we haven’t seen any results yet and it’s time to see some results. I just want some lighting over there. At least a camera or something to see. I didn’t realize how bad it was until I got robbed,” Childress said.
