County Judge declares local disaster
From the Parker County Judge’s Office
Continuing drought conditions and threat of wildfires has prompted County Judge Mark Riley to issue a disaster declaration banning use of all fireworks in the county until July 5.
The Texas Disaster Act allows County Judges to ban the use of fireworks during a disaster for up to 60 hours unless the governor extends the ban.
Texas Governor Rick Perry has extended the ban on the use of fireworks in Parker County through July 5, 2011. 120 other Texas counties have also banned the use of fireworks, according to Perry’s office.
“The Texas Division of Emergency Management has reviewed the request for an extension and recommends that it be granted,” Perry said.
The Willow Park City Council meeting scheduled for Monday was canceled due to lack of a quorum.
Board hears options for hiring new superintendent
By DERIK MOORE
Weatherford ISD Director of Communications
Members of the Weatherford ISD Board of Trustees took their first step in what Board President Charlie Martinez said will be “their most difficult task of the year” when trying to determine how to replace Superintendent Dr. Deborah Cron, who recently announced her retirement to be effective in December.
Monday’s Special Board Work Session was an information-only meeting where the District’s attorney and WISD’s Assistant Superintendent of Business and Operations informed Board members their various options to consider when searching for Dr. Cron’s replacement.
Construction crews began work of overlaying pavement on FM 1187 today between I-20 and Bailey Ranch Road. The work will reduce the two-lane roadway to one lane at various locations. A pilot car will lead motorists through the work zone.
An announcement of the work, received late Friday from TxDot, said "We appreciate motorist’s patience while crews complete this maintenance work. During construction, alternate routes are encouraged."

A Wise County man that rammed his wife’s car and then shot her twice in the leg last November was assessed sentences of 60, 20, and 10 years in prison for three aggravated assault cases in a jury trial that concluded in Weatherford on Thursday.
On November 3, David Daniel Duff, Jr., 41, was served with divorce papers after having separated from his wife about a month prior. What happened from there was described by Assistant District Attorney Jeff Swain, who tried the case with Assistant District Attorney Kathleen Catania, as "the worst nightmare of every person that files for divorce."
