Tyler County Booster - December 2009
Over the past couple of months, a rash of burglaries has taken place near Woodville and US 287. I am proud to say with some solid law enforcement work by Sgt. Trish Ford, Deputies Rene Gutierrez, Brant Loechel and Mike Williams, and Chief Deputy Clint Sturrock; we now have the primary suspect in our county jail and have recovered many of the stolen items. Thanks also goes out to the Woodville Police Department, Constable Garry Mattingly and his Deputy Constable, Terry Riley, for all that you have done in either solving, or helping us solve different crimes perpetrated in our County recently. All law enforcement agencies in Tyler County working together for a common goal is one of our greatest crime-fighting tools, and your work has been a shining example of that fact. On November 14th, I was afforded an opportunity that I consider a true honor. Congressman Brady’s Office called and asked, as a representative of Tyler County, if I would serve on the US Military Service Academy Selection Board, where I would be able to play a part in the selection of young men and women to attend one of our military service academies (Air Force Academy, Annapolis, or West Point) in the upcoming school year. To Mr. David Williford, as our only Tyler County student that qualified this year for the Academy Selection Board; best of luck. To simply be called before the Selection Board is quite an achievement, and worthy of those around you knowing what you have accomplished by making it to this point. I hope all had a safe and happy Thanksgiving, and best wishes from my family and the Sheriff’s Office on a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
