Hearne City Council calls for re-bids for CDL office

By Melissa Freeman | Robertson County News

In its regular city council meeting, the Hearne City Council approved minutes and paid the bills, then approved Mr. James Wilson’s bid to purchase the four lots adjacent to the lot he currently owns. Mayor Ruben Gomez explained that these lots had been owned by the city in the south side addition and “had been sitting” since 2001. It was time to “get them back on the tax roll.”

It tabled a bid from LeAnthony Dykes for 7 lots in the same area until the council could re-examine the ordinance governing the sale of these city owned properties and make sure his bid complied.

The rest of the 30-minute meeting was devoted to considering what to do with two very disparate bids to construct a Hearne-based commercial driver’s license (CDL). One bid for $115,800 covered building construction only while the other for $323,951 including the cost for creating the parking lot and making road improvements.

A Hearne woman died Tuesday night after being shot by a Hearne police officer.

An officer responded Tuesday evening to a 911 call at the home of 93-year-old Pearlie Golden, after the caller reported a woman with a firearm, according to Robertson County Attorney / District Attorney Coty Seigert. Officer Stephen Stem identified the suspect and confirmed that she did have a firearm. Stem then ordered Golden to put down the weapon before ultimately firing his weapon, according to a press release issued by the DA’s office early Wednesday.

“Investigators recovered three shell casings from the scene,” said sources close to the investigation.

Neighbors interviewed at the scene reported as many as five shots fired by the officer. There has been no official statement regarding the number of shots fired and it has been reported that an autopsy will be conducted of the suspect.

Digging up the past

About 60 Blinn students under the direction of Drs. Michelle Raizor and Dawn Marshall visited Camp Hearne on Friday with garden trowels and earth sifting frames. They dug and sifted through areas around a mess hall in Compound One, near the Kneeling Lady Foundation.

The students found the usual large number of 1940s nails, some sheets of ancient-looking tin, a lot of pieces of Camp clay pipes and a marble that was probably part of the decorative boarder around a flower bed. During the dig this time last year, the Blinn class students found a lot of connecting pieces—hardware from German rucksacks and combat belts, pieces that would have held knives, canteens, gun holsters, etc.
