First, second and third place individual medalists and first place team members will compete at the 2022 Region III-AA Academic Regional Spring Meet at Panola College on April 22nd and 23rd.

 

Shelbyville Academic UIL coaches attending the regional meet:  

Brooke Harrison (Science), Cole Harrison (Number Sense), Megan Holt (Accounting), Dominique Roland (Literary Criticism), Mario Osby (Computer Applications), Emily Sowell (Informative Speaking, Persuasive Speaking, Lincoln-Douglas Debate, Current Issues & Events), Jeane Taylor (Poetry Interpretation, Prose Interpretation), and Claire Windham (Copy Editing, Editorial Writing, Feature Writing, Headline Writing, Ready Writing).

 

“Students who compete in UIL events devote countless hours preparing for UIL academic competition”, said Dr. David Stevens, UIL director of academics.  “Like their athletic counterparts, they practice before, during and after school and attend invitational meets and competitions.  For virtually every school in Texas, it serves as an extension to the regular classroom for highly motivated, intelligent young men and women.”  

 

“The UIL schedules a greater variety of contests, holds larger meets, and provides services to more students than any similar program in the nation.  The UIL offers contests in 23 academic events, including Cross-Examination Debate.  “In its own way, each contest is intended to teach the thinking skills students will need in college and in their careers,” Stevens said.  “We have tremendous anecdotal evidence from students who testify to the importance UIL academic contests played in their high school careers.  We also know that employers want workers who can solve problems, speak effectively and write clearly.  Each contest is designed to help students reach those goals.”

Boil Water Notice for N.E.W. Water System

Boil Water Notice for N.E.W.  Water System

 

Effective March 22, 2022

Until further notice


 

Due to a break in the line, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the N.E.W. Water Supply Corporation PWS  # 2030034 to notify all customers on FM 1279 (Hawthorne Road) to boil their water prior to consumption (eg., washing hands/ face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc).  Children, seniors and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions.

 

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.  The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. 

 

In lieu of boiling, individuals may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

 

When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes. 

 

Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.


 

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received the notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses).  You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

 

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact N.E.W. Water Supply Corporation at 220 W. Columbia Street, San Augustine, Texas, 75972, or call 936-288-0489

 or Charles Sharp at 936-201-5001.

District 5 Extension Education Spring Meeting

District 5 Extension Education Spring Meeting held at the Windom Convention Center was attended by 40 members and agents and District personnel from around East Texas. I should have a picture to show, but I will have to tell about it, as if I were a writer. Debra Chadwick helped us make the room look like the theme of the day, "TEEA Chicken Fling", with her Chicken Collection. Margaret Smith provided a chicken theme quilt which was displayed in the corner of the room. Peaches Conway, Bobbie Nutt and Annette Jackson managed the registration table. They handed out goody bags with information on Center and our chicken industry. Feleshia Thompson, County Extension Agent for Family and Community Health, helped us with arrangements and planning. 

District 5 Director, Suzie Blackmon from Cherokee County, was in charge of directing the time which included flag salutes to the United States flag and Texas State flag. The group was welcomed by County Judge, Allison Harbison. The Poultry Festival Queen showed us how to do the Chicken Dance during our break. Our formalities include our TEEA Prayer and Creed led by Annette Jackson. We had Door Prizes and Raffles to hlep raise money for scholarships for 4-H members. Shelby County made a big contribution to the scholarship fund because our meeting was fully funded by the Chamber of Commerce and Tyson Foods and we did not turn in any bills to the Treasurer. We also collect money for supplies and repair of the 4-H camp in Brownwood. Of course we had a box lunch which featured more chicken prepared by a local caterer. 

Our Key Note Speaker was Mayor, David Chadwick who told us more about the City of Center square than meets the eye and in so doing challanged us to help the cause of living by doing our part. In the business meeting we accepted the task of selling tickets for a sewing machine. We needed to update the by-laws to keep up with changes in the world. Suzie Blackmon reported what happened at the State Board. We made plans for future meetings on the District and State levels. 

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I do not have that many words but I would like to know if this sounds interesting to you and if you might like to become a member and help us with monthly and district meetings in the future.

PURSUIT ENDS IN ARRESTS; PROPERTY RECOVERED

Shelby County Sheriff Kevin W. Windham reports the arrest of Ty Glover, 24, of Lufkin and Travis Wright, 24, of Lufkin.

On March 6, 2022, a deputy with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office noticed a SUV traveling North on US 96 in Center. The vehicle had sparks coming from the undercarriage and the deputy initiated a traffic stop. As the deputy exited his patrol vehicle and approached the SUV, the driver accelerated, turned around and began traveling South on US 96 towards the city of Center.

After a brief pursuit, the vehicle crashed near the edge of the property at the Best Western in Center.

The driver, later identified at Glover, exited the vehicle, and ran into the Best Western and was found hiding in a laundry room on the second floor. Glover was taken into custody without incident.

Further investigation led deputies to a hotel room where Wright was located. Inside the room, deputies located a substance believe to be methamphetamines, and marijuana. Wright was taken into custody.

 

 

 

During the course of the investigation, deputies learned that the vehicle Glover was driving had been stolen from a pawn shop in Center. The vehicle also contained numerous pieces of property stolen from the pawn shop as well. Glover also told deputies there was another vehicle that had been stolen from Lufkin, and where the vehicle was parked. Officers from Center Police Department assisted the SCSO and located the vehicle.

Glover was arrested and booked into the Shelby County jail on local charges including: Evading Arrest with a Vehicle (SJF) $5,000 bond; Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle (SJF) $5,000 bond; and Burglary of a Building (SJF) $5,000 bond. Glover also has warrants out of Angelina County for Credit/Debit Card Abuse and Theft.

Wright was arrested and booked in to the Shelby County jail on local charges including: POCS (F-3) $7,500 bond; and POM (M-A) $1,500 bond. Wright also has warrants out of Angelina County for FTA and Bail Jumping.

“This is proof that our deputies are out doing their jobs and patrolling this county,” said Sheriff Windham. “This situation was able to be shut down quickly and although a stolen vehicle did receive damage, we were able to recover everything that was stolen and were able to return it all to the rightful owner.” The SCSO would like to thank the Center Police Department, and Constable Precinct 5 Josh Tipton for their assistance.

The leadership discussions and poster presentation were followed by Drew Dudley’s TED Talk about “Lollipop Moments”.

 

The students joined the Center Rotary Club for lunch.  Rotary President Elect, Cancee Lester, welcomed the students and their Sponsors.  She shared insight into Civic Involvement in the community and talked about Rotary’s involvement in our community as well as world wide.

The 17th Annual Shelby County 4-H & FFA Livestock Show was held March 3, 2022 at the Sheriff’s Posse Rodeo Arena with over 100 exhibitors. Weigh-in of  market animals started at 7:30 a.m. and the show began at 10:00 a.m. with rabbits judged by Mr. Frank Farrow. Joe Rathman, judged the lambs, goats, swine, and  cattle.

Shelby County Appraisal District Reminds Businesses to  Render Their Taxable Property by April 15th 

Shelby County Appraisal District Reminds Businesses to  Render Their Taxable Property by April 15th 

If you own tangible personal property that is used to produce income, then a rendition must be filed  with the Shelby County Appraisal District by April 15th. Property owners who need more time to file  their renditions may file a written request with the chief appraiser on or before April 15th to receive an  automatic extension to May 15th or the next business day. The chief appraiser may also grant an  additional 15 days after the postponed deadline, if necessary.  

A rendition is a report that lists all the taxable property you owned or controlled on January 1 of this  year. Property includes inventory and equipment used by a business. Owners do not have to render  exempt property, such as church property or an agriculture producer’s equipment used for farming.  

The appraisal district may use the information submitted in the rendition to set property values.  

If more than one appraisal district appraises a property, the property owner should render in each  appraisal district office.  

You can also file a report of decreased value to notify the district of significant depreciation of your  property. For example, if your property was damaged by a storm, flood or fire last year, you should  file a report of decreased value. The district will look at your property before assigning a value. The  last day to file a rendition or report of decreased value is April 15th.  

If a rendition is filed late, is incomplete, not filed at all or is determined  to contain false information, a penalty of 10 to 50 percent of the total  amount of taxes levied on the property for that year will be imposed. 

For more information about rendering property, deadline extensions, penalties and rendition forms,  taxpayers may contact the Shelby County Appraisal District at (936) 598-6171. More information is  also available from the Comptroller’s website at www.comptroller.texas.gov/taxes/property-tax/.

Aryan Brotherhood Gang Member Added to Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives List

 

 

Aryan Brotherhood Gang Member Added to Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives List

 

AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has added David Daniel Boone to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list. Boone, 47, is wanted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, assault of a family/household member and a parole violation. Texas Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $7,500 for information leading to his arrest. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.

 

Boone, of Cleburne, is affiliated with the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas. He’s been wanted since October 2020, when the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles issued a warrant for a parole violation. In February 2021, the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office also issued warrants for Boone’s arrest for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and assault of family/household member by impeding breath/circulation.

 

In 2004, Boone was sentenced to nine months in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) prison for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. The following year he was convicted of possession of a controlled substance and sentenced to two years in a TDCJ prison. In 2008, Boone was convicted of possession with intent to deliver and sentenced to 40 years in a TDCJ prison. He was released on parole in 2014.

 

Boone is 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighs about 215 pounds and has tattoos on his chest, back, both arms, both wrists and his fingers. In addition to Cleburne, Boone has ties to Hood County. For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, view his wanted bulletin.

 

Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division, offers cash rewards to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of one of Texas’ 10 Most Wanted Fugitives or Sex Offenders. So far in 2022, DPS and other agencies have arrested 12 people off the lists, including four gang members and seven sex offenders. In addition, $32,500 in rewards has been paid for tips that yielded arrests.

 

To be eligible for cash rewards, tipsters MUST provide information to authorities using one of the following three methods:

 

  • Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).
  • Submit a web tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive you have information about then clicking on the link under their picture.
  • Submit a Facebook tip by clicking the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” section).

 

All tips are anonymous — regardless of how they are submitted — and tipsters will be provided a tip number instead of using a name.

 

DPS investigators work with local law enforcement agencies to select fugitives for the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders Lists. You can find the current lists — with photos — on the DPS website.

 

Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.

SAKS of Love


 

The Shelby County Chamber Ambassadors are excited to invite the public to a Ribbon Cutting at SAKS of Love, the newest Chamber member.  The Ribbon Cutting will be held on Saturday, March 5th at 2:00pm.  SAKS of Love is located at 193 North George Bowers Drive, in Tenaha, Texas.

 

Christina Leary, Executive Director, founded SAKS of Love in 2017.  SAKS of Love is a non-profit organization founded on the awareness of our senior citizens needing support and love.  During the Christmas holidays, SAKS of Love distributed Christmas sacks for the elderly that were full of household supplies and food.

 

SAKS of Love not only provides assistance to senior citizens, but to families in need as well.  They provide families with household supplies, clothing, food and prayer.  SAKS of Love organized a Community Wellness Event in Tenaha  that included free Covid testing, free hygiene Bags and hand sanitzers, snacks for the kids, clothing vouchers, blood pressure checks, and much much more.

 

According to Ms. Leary, “we like to help the older people and people of all ages with clothes and food.  We like to give love and support to the community.  We also have a campaign “Inspire by You” that they would like to recognize on Saturday.”  

 

SAKS of Love is open on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Saturdays of the month.  On the 2nd Saturday, they serve the homeless.  SAKS of Love serve Shelby, Angelina, Panola and Nacogdoches Counties.
