Robertson County News The University Interscholastic League handed down a public reprimand along with three years probation to Calvert ISD and specifically Athletic Director Marcus Wortham. The probationary measures comes from the failure to sub, it student eligibility forms in a timely manner. Worthem himself was sighted for failure to complete the UIL rules compliance program for the basketball season. Though Worthem did complete the rules test, he did not complete the test in a UIL timely manner. Only coaches associated with a sport need take the compliance program. A basketball coach that did not coach track would not have to take the track compliance, however as Athletic Director a coach is required to complete the rules compliance program for every sport.

From then to now at the fair

As we celebrate this year, the 50th anniversary of the Robertson County Fair, we should reflect on its history and how this  organization was shaped into the fair that we have come to know today. Several years ago Calvert and Hearne had separate livestock shows in their own towns. Around 1965 an idea was brought about for there to be a single Robertson County Junior Livestock Show and Auction in which all members of the county could participate.
