July Jamboree

Howdy folks! It’s once again time for the New Baden Jamboree. As you all know it is the oldest on going Jamborees in Texas since 1954, always on the first Saturday of each month. This Saturday, July 6th, is going to be another great New Baden Jamboree Show.
The first group to play is Franklin’s own Charles Ellison who has been performing at New Baden since the beginning. Charles has a smooth voice and a good variety of old and modern country music. Back in the early days Charles has played with several famous entertainers around Texas and a lot of dances throughout his music career.  
The second group to perform is a very special Gospel band “Joyful Noise”. Rene’ and Judy Estrada has some of the most beautiful gospel music around. They also do a very good job of honoring the various armed forces with their music. Every year on the 4th of July they do a special tribute with their music to our veterans of the armed services.

Miracle for Marine

Marnie was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome when she was 2.5 years old.  It was first thought to be Autism.  Upon further testing and observation, it was decided she had Retts.  As parents, we were devastated. All of the hopes and dreams we had for our precious little girl were gone.  She would not lead a “normal” life.

New Generation launches its first annual Juneteenth Celebration in a big way

Though Hearne has celebrated Juneteenth in the past, it has probably never celebrated quite as well as it did last Saturday with a parade, a street re-naming, and a family party at Godfrey-Gentry Park with lots of games, eats and drinks and inflatable’s for the kids.
Festivities actually began the evening before with a softball tournament with ten teams competing for the New Generation Juneteenth title.  Coming in first was Hearne’s own Puno Chorizo team followed by a team from Rockdale headed by Rev. Roger Jackson.

Firework limits for Robertson County

Robertson County Commissioners Court has put in an order prohibiting certain fireworks in unincorporated areas. This order states that no person may sell, detonate, ignite, or anyway use fireworks classified as “skyrockets with sticks” and “missiles with fins” in specified areas of the county.
The order does not prohibit permissible fireworks such as common fireworks small in size and large firework devices designed primarily to produce visible or audible effects by combustion, deflagration, or detonation.
If a person commits an offence knowingly or intentionally it is a Class C misdemeanor.
Some cities in the county have placed a couple of their own rules as well.
Hearne and Bremond have banned fireworks within the city limits, but Hearne has set a designated location for people to go and shoot off fireworks.

Flag Day tradition celebrated with flag retirement in Hearne

On June 14, 2013 the American Legion and VFW sponsored a flag burning to retire old and wore down American flags. This event was held at Chandler Park at 10:30a.m.
VFW Commander, Ed Luster, and the American Legion Commander, Chuck Carlson, lead the event with a salute to the American Flag and the pledge. Luster’s granddaughter, Jayda Vega, led the pledge.
Other local veterans that attended the ceremony were Andrew Cannon and Delfino Sifuentes.
The ceremony was small but had a great impact on those involved.

Calvert Council hears another citizen complaint

The Calvert City Council met briefly in open session Monday night to hear from its utility providers and field another complaint against the police department from a Calvert resident.  
First, the panel heard from its city superintendent, Kevin O’Carroll, who reported that water pumps—both part of the city’s water system and the city’s waste water system—were all running.  He said that the original installer, Smith Pumps, covered much of the cost of repairs.  The lift station on FM 1644 had also been repaired and the electrical problem that caused it to go out had been corrected.
In her report, Police Chief Nancy Juvrud said that the department had actually received a compliment.  A letter to the editor in the Robertson County News commended Officer James West for going above and beyond his duty to help residents. She also reported that she and two other officers were attending “active shooter” training in College Station.
