County Commissioners Will Meet on Wednesday

The first meeting of the new Lampasas Co. Commissioners Court will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 9 at 9am.

It’s a called meeting and the agenda includes an order appointing Susie LaFuente, a long time Deputy County Auditor, as the Interim Auditor effective Jan. 1, replacing former Auditor Chris Munn. There will also be a compensation stipend move for her in the order.

In another matter, there is mention of an executive session where the discussion will be on personnel matters, and back in regular session, the agenda indicates possible discussion on the Jail Project.

The Lampasas Livestock Show Starts Thursday

Stock shows are not a big deal in some towns, but they are here, and starting Thursday, the town is going to see a lot of pickups and trailers in and around town with cages in the back. There’ll be chickens and rabbits on Thursday and pigs and bleating goats and lambs on Friday and really big, fat and muscled heifers and steers on Saturday, and most of all, there’ll be kids…lots of them.

God bless the children and all their endeavors, and we wish they could all win. Perhaps they do…
