Rodeo gallops into Hearne

The Glover Rodeo was a huge success. The parade was Saturday morning and the rodeo events lasted all through the evening. They supplied a lot of yummy food and very friendly staff.

The rodeo is an older event and is well respected among the community.

Glover’s Rodeo started in 1982 and has always been held on the 3rd Saturday in the month of September. The Rodeo was originally held in Madisonville, Texas, home to the Glover family. The spirit of togetherness, the love for family, is the foundation that Melvin Glover pioneered Glover’s Rodeo. It provides the opportunity for the local community as well as out-of-towners to come together not only for a good time; it carries on the tradition and sport of the Rodeo.

More importantly it allows you to escape every day life and just celebrate for whatever you feel needs to be celebrated.

The 411 on 911

On July 22, Chris Lamb, Chief of EMS and Director of Operations proposed new software to improve dispatching services for Robertson County. The goal was to implement new software but Lamb got more than he bargained for. “I just want to go back to taking care of the people of Robertson County,” said Lamb in open court, “I don’t care about all the politics. I’m spending more time dealing with the rumors than helping people.”
Lamb was just one of many that had had their fill of rumors that swelled throughout the county regarding a possible consolidation of 911 services.
Judge Jan Roe addressed the court to outline what had transpired over the previous 30+ days regarding the Sheriff’s office, 911 dispatching and to quell any rumors. This would be the third time the Judge told the same story, in open court.
Judge Jan Roe’s idea:
1. Buy the new 911 dispatch software.
