Special to The Examiner

Monday, July 21, The Examiner gave me the opportunity to meet with Texas Education Agency Commissioner of Education Michael Williams alongside various local media outlets. After receiving our clearance to visit with him, we were ushered to the fifth floor of the Edison Plaza building. Moments later, Commissioner Williams entered the room, joined us at the table where we were seated, and greeted us.

Special to The Examiner from the desk of Jefferson County Precinct 2 Commissioner Brent Weaver:

 

Mowing season is here and many times our county precinct mowers, which operate along the county roadways, are delayed by trash that has been dumped on the side of the roadway.
