County Judge’s Report

November 10th, 2014 by

I had a relatively slow week, as I am still recuperating from my surgery and still on light duty for the most part. I checked in with the road department, of course, and did a lot of chores in the office. I also helped out with some cleanup projects around the courthouse. We did some more planting in the flower beds on either side of the stairs.

By the middle of the week, I was able to get out and ride some roads. I also attended the Monticello City Council meeting, where the council agreed to pay for the city’s share of the Code Red early warning service. At this time, I will consider not renewing the contract with Code Red unless we get some of the issues worked out. Many people received phone calls alerting them of a recent storm system in the area, but did not get text messages about the storm until the next day. I am researching that to find out if that was due to issues with the cell phone carrier or Code Red, and will be considering that as we go forward.

Final Score – Harmony Grove 40, Drew Central 14

November 7th, 2014 by

Thursday night, the Drew Central Pirates lost at home to the Harmony Grove Hornets, 14-40. It was the Pirates’ last game this season, and they played hard to end it on a good note.

The Hornets were successful in the first half, with the score being 0-34 at halftime, but in what seems to be turning into a trend, the Pirates rallied in the second half. The Pirates held the Hornets to a touchdown, and blocked their extra point attempt, while scoring 2 touchdowns and a 2 point conversion of their own. The Pirates also forced a fumble on a Hornet kickoff return, and recovered the ball on the Hornet 20 yard line, but ran out of time before they scored again.
