COMMISSIONER says no apology, No Road
Residents petition to speed work turns personal for Stone

By Amy McCarty
of the Gazette Staff
Twenty-seven signatures on a folded sheet of white paper are keeping County Road 1225 from being paved.What was once a regulary scheduled routine paving of a county road has turned into a issue of stubbornness, with county officials saying the road won't be paved any time soon.

Residents in precinct one are upset at commissioner Jack Stone over the fact that there road has been dirt and gravel for the past three months.Twenty seven residents signed a petition telling him that the dust is causing health problems and the large pieces of gravel are scarring there vechiles.

Stone was offended by the petition, saying the residents did'nt know the circumstances around fixing the road , and until he recieves a apology from the petition signers the road formed of chunkey rock and dusty clay will remain unpaved.

Everyday Jennifer Lee drives from her trailor on County Road 1225 to work in Texarkana and drives home in the evening.Traveling down the gravel road several weeks ago , her 1993 full size van hit a chunk of rock that bent the frame of her van causing $1,200 damage.

We're the ones on the short end of the stick Lee said. I don't have that kind of money to pay and I did'nt want to report it my insurance company because I don't want my premiums raised.It's ridiculous we want the road fixed.

In July the road crew plowed up the road and placed the residents mailboxes in five gallon buckets on the side of the road.

Stone said the road was taken up and was on the schedule to be repaved so that the citizens would have a better road to drive on.In addition there were drainage problems that needed to be fixed.Stone's crew began raising the road and packed up the road by adding gravel.The lack of rain this summer caused a delay in the road construction because water is needed to pack the road.The petition demanded Stone get the work done immediately.

I was ready to work on it Stone said, but then thay started with this petition .I work to hard for them to question my work.I know what I am doing and how to do it right.I am not going to be harassed like that.

Residents say they have every right to circulate the petition and Stone should'nt have a problem with that.They say that the portion of farm market road 2148 near Redlick has been worked on all during the summer despite the lack of rain.They wonder why the road has not been finished.

Because he's an elected official resident's say Stone should swallow his pride and get the work done immediately.

Is this how it works Lee said ? She says she has voted for and supported Stone during the twelve years he's been in office.We elected him now he calls the shots? I don't think so , He's an elected official and he's suppose to be responsible for the peoples needs.We have a need.

Part 2

Stone says he takes the petition personally and that he has no intentions of paving the road until he receives a apology from the petition signers. His hands grip the steering wheel of his truck as his wrinkled fingers point out the work he has done on the roads.

I just overlayed this one he says. You can see all the work I've done .The people in the precinct must like what im doing because I have worked for them for twelve years and they've elected me to four more.

During his twelve years Stone has only had one other petition circulated against him. In 1990 residents circulated a petition concerning the paving of another road in his precinct.Residents were adamant about getting the road paved , but Stone said he wouldn't have the road paved until he recieved a apology from them.It took two and one half years but the residents apologized.Soon after they got there new road.

They can blow smoke all they want to, but until they get off there high horse, I won't do a thing he said.And the fact is he doesn't have to do anything under the law.

The county judge says neither he nor any other figure in government including a Congressman and State representative has any power over a County Commissioner.

The way the government is set up I have no authority over the commissioners and I don't want that authority says County Judge James Carlow.He's had a whole lifetime of experience and does a fine job . He's not going to do anything until he is ready and I can't argue with his judgement.If they are not patient they may end up having a pretty long wait getting that road paved.

The way it looks right now a letter of apology will only get the residents their fixed road come next summer , more than six months over the proposed finish date.

Im ready to work on it and I will work on it if I get a apology Stone said.

Residents say they are going to fight to get the road paved and that Stone owes them an apology not the other way.

We have people breathing this dust that have health problems Lee said. She said she is also concerned about wheather or not an emergency vechile will be able to get to the area because of the road conditions. We don't owe him anything its unbearable we need our road paved.

Thank you Texarkana Gazette

I guess I would be shocked that a County Commissioner(which has been placed in office by the Residents) Can act this way, But then agian this is how ALL elected officials act!
'Heck no I would not give him an apology!!
There may be a possibilty of a law suit, because of dangers of health problems from the dust..
I would consult with a Attorney just for kicks!

I don't think Jack has anyone hustling ballots.
Then Rusty after loosing this race four times already may well be.
I know him to be a hustler when it comes to selling a used car.

Jack Stone I wonder how many times has your wife been messed up on meth or pills?
Just a question for the record.

Yes, one of Kathy and Ronda's real good friend's really has some good input for Rust and Kathy.
Don't they have a daughter that has some problems also??

The gothic sick thing!!!

I'll bet non of you know that Jack pappas the Chief Probation Officer was a drug dealer and has been on probation in the past and Mike Farris the County Fines and collections man has been on probation for drug possession and use. Both are felons and they got records expunged and now are high in County government in Bowie County. Why have Judge Pesek, Judge Miller, Judge Addison and Judge Carlow approved of this and kept the citizens in the dark?

Now isnt this interesting. Jack Stones son gets illegal exemptions and only pays $6.19 when his neighbor only has a half acre more and pays $159.17.Thats quite a increase.Now who's corrupt?
