After earlier balking at paying a bill to subsidize the salaries of the 10th Court of Appeals justices, Coryell County commissioners voted Monday to pay up. It was not the first time commissioners have questioned the need to participate in the program, which carries a $1,938 price tag.

Hornets claim tourney title
