Big $ items driving up budget

A new district court, increased costs for medical health insurance and four capital murder cases are among the issues facing Coryell County commissioners as they work on developing a budget for the 2016-2017 fiscal year. In a budget workshop held Tuesday, commissioners took a hard look at the numbers, but stopped short of making any cuts. Those will likely come at a later date.

CCAD’s final values show increase over spring figures

Most taxing entities already knew property values were going up, but many of them received additional good news when the certified values were announced by the Coryell Central Appraisal District. Only five protests remained in question when Mitch Fast, CCAD chief appraiser, sent out the certified values.

Camps are headed down the home stretch

The clock is winding down with less than two weeks remaining for the many summer athletic camps offered through the Gatesville Independent School District. The final five camps will be stretched over next week and the following week, ending on Aug. 4 with the conclusion of both the boys’ and girls’ tennis camps.

50 years & counting

It’s been 50 years, and Don Jones admits some of the detail is a bit fuzzy at best. But the event itself left a lasting reminder and some very fond memories on his then-young mind.
