AUSTIN, Texas – The Texas Historical Commission recently awarded Hopkins County an Honor Award through its Texas Courthouse Stewardship Program for establishing excellent stewardship practices in maintaining its restored historic courthouse. The $2,500 award was announced at the two-day Texas Courthouse Stewardship Workshop held recently in Austin. Both the workshop and the award were made possible through a generous grant from the Texas Land Title Association.
Three interstate traffic stops over the weekend netted 1 kilogram of cocaine, more than 25 pounds of marijuana and at least four felony arrests.
