Crockett City Council shows some confusion when it comes to billboards

By Tom Nicol Messenger Publisher The Crockett City Council, in a meeting held on Monday April 3, entered into a lengthy discussion on whether to end a moratorium on the building of billboards and to permit new off-premise signs in the city as reported in the Sunday edition of the Courier in Houston County. According to the reports, the item on the meeting’s agenda relating to the matter called for members of the council to consider and approve an ordinance that would amend Chapter 13, Sections 13-201 and 13-209 of the city’s Code of Ordinances relating to licenses and business regulations. Mayor Meadows, according to the newspaper article, commented, “The newer ones, (billboard structures), were built substandard. And that’s just a fact, whether its offensive to those who constructed them, or not”. The actual fact is that all new billboards were built under permit from the city, inspected by the City Code officer and signed off on as safe and permittable. They were not only built to city specifications but also to those specified by the State Right-of-Way Commission of the State of Texas. Most are built on state thoroughfares such as SH 21, SH19, US 287, SH 7 and Loop 304, all state maintained roadways with structures, at the time of construction, also inspected by the State Highway Department and built to their specifications. In answer to another...

Traffic stop turns into drug bust for Magnolia man, juvenile

By Cody Thompson Messenger Reporter CROCKETT – A Magnolia man and a juvenile were arrested by the Crockett Police Department after a routine traffic stop turned into a drug bust on Friday, March 31. Drew Oneal Bacon, 18, was charged with possession of marijuana, and the juvenile was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance. CPD Corporal Todd Little conducted a traffic stop on a 2006 Hyundai Sonata after the vehicle made an illegal left turn onto East Goliad Avenue (wrong way down a one-way street) on Friday at 10:20 p.m., an affidavit of probable cause said. “I (Little) made contact with the driver (the juvenile) and the front passenger (Bacon),” the affidavit said. “(The juvenile) said they were coming from Magnolia and meeting his cousin in Crockett.” Little observed pieces of cigarillo packaging and and small, empty mason jar in the back seat of the vehicle, the probable cause document said. As Little was writing the warning for the traffic violation, CPD sergeant Alfredo Fajardo arrived at the scene to offer assistance, the affidavit said. “I (Little) told him (Fajardo) about the cigarillo packages and asked if he wanted to speak to the occupants (of the vehicle) while I finished writing out the warning,” the affidavit said. Fajardo approached the vehicle and noticed the cigarillo packages and claimed to smell marijuana coming from the...

Kalin’s Center plans event to raise awareness for Child Abuse Prevention Month

By Cody Thompson Messenger Reporter CROCKETT – April is National Child Abuse Awareness Month and several organizations across the state of Texas and Houston County have joined the national movement to raise awareness. One such organization is Kalin’s Center, a child advocacy center in Crockett. “We (Kalin’s Center) believe that ignorance is the worst thing for abused children,” Kalin’s Center financial administrator Ashley Crawford said. “Being blind to the darkness of child abuse keeps the children suffering from abuse trapped in that darkness. When people raise awareness, they are shining a light on those children.” The Kalin’s Center, along with the Houston County Child Welfare Board, will host a flag-raising ceremony in honor of Child Abuse Prevention Month at the Houston County Courthouse at 11 a.m. on Monday, April 10. “We just finished decorating the flag,” Crawford told the Messenger on Tuesday. “It is decorated with the silhouettes of children on it to represent those being abused.” After the raising of the flag, the ceremony will conclude with a balloon release. “Each balloon represents a child in Houston County that has been abused in the past year,” Crawford said. The Kalin’s Center hosted a similar ceremony for Trinity County in Groveton on Monday, April 3. “We had a great turnout for the Groveton ceremony,” Crawford said. “There were a lot of people ready to declare awareness.” Last year, Child...
