Scouts have a place to call home again By Christina Rowland Progress staff

GEORGE WEST – The Boy Scout Hut on Burleson Street will once again have occupants. Sixth-grade elementary teacher Tracy Williams has taken on the task of again forming a Boy Scout troop in George West. County Attorney Gene Chapline also expressed an interest in the scout

troop. He spoke very highly of Williams and will be helping along with Duane McWilliams with maintenance of the Scout Hut. “Schneider and McWillams, P.C. funded the troop and it gives them a place to hang their hat,” Chapline told the council. The troop has paid the lease for the next year at

the hut and the lease is renewable for nine more years after that. Williams has the minimum number needed to start a new troop and they have already held their first two meetings. Williams said she got started in scouts 14 years ago when her son was young. He completed years of scout training and earned his Eagle

Scout rank when the family was living in Beeville. “I believe in scouting and it has done wondrous things for my son,” Williams told the council. Williams said that the troop will be having its first camp-out at the end of the month and that she is already looking for guest speakers and positive male role models to come and talk to the boys.

Sewing Queen By Christina Rowland Progress staff

Three Rivers High School junior Angie Sauceda lights up when she talks about sewing. The teen, dressed in a lime green and pink coordinated outfit, considers sewing a part of her life. “When I am not sewing, I am usually planning to sew,” she said. “I look at patterns or draw sketches of things I’d like to make.” Sauceda entered the Live Oak County Fair for the fifth year with her sewing creations. This year she entered both a dress and a romper. She said the dress took five days of working after school to make while the romper took a whole month. Sauceda learned to sew in seventh grade when she took Jacqueline Coquat’s Life Management Skills class. “At first I took it (the class) because I wanted to learn sewing skills, but then I fell in love with it and wanted to keep doing it,” Sauceda said. She has had Coquat several times over the years as a teacher but since she isn’t currently enrolled in one of her classes, she was staying about three hours after school in the months leading up to the fair to finish her projects. “I am very grateful

to Mrs. Coquat because she is the one who would stay after school with me,” Sauceda said. When it came to choosing this year’s projects, Sauceda said she chose the dress because she likes wearing dresses and the romper because “I have always wanted one.” All the clothes she makes are in her size, so after the judging the outfits can be added to her wardrobe for her everyday wear. The fabric for these projects has been picked out since the summer, even though the projects were not started until months later. She said most of her fabric and patterns are purchased at either Jo-Ann Fabrics and Craft Stores or Hobby Lobby. In the case of this year’s dress, she purchased four patterns and combined them to make the dress she wanted. “It’s so much fun,” she said. “Every step of the project makes me happy. Putting the clothes together and wearing them makes me feel proud of myself.” Sauceda isn’t the only one who is proud; she said her mom gets excited about her projects too. “She gets really excited when I am picking out my patterns and (See Sewing, 9A)

According to a Live Oak County Sheriff’s report, the father put the child in the vehicle in the morning to take her to day care but then forgot. He drove straight to work at Valero Refinery to begin his work day. The report states “when the father came out of work at 4:30 the child was screaming and barely breathing.” The father then removed the child from the car and took her to

GEORGE WEST – Three Live Oak County jailers were indicted Feb. 29 accused of improper sexual activity with an inmate. The charges against Vincent Aguilar, 28, of George West, Israel Charles, Jr., 22, of Tuleta and Jaime Enrique Smith, 46, of Beeville stem from incidents reported in 2010. According to prior information, two female inmates from Jim Wells County who were being housed in Live Oak County accused the three of sexual assault. After the first of the women reported the assault, jail officials reviewed video surveillance from the jail cameras. On the video they saw a jailer squatting down by the door in the hallway with his arm in the food hatch of the room housing one of the women, offi-

Once they arrived, she was transported to the hospital. A current condition of the child is not known at this time. The father was not arrested at the time and no charges have been filed. The Three Rivers Police Department officers, who responded to the incident, are collecting evidence that is expected to be presented to the grand jury that will then decide if formal charges are applicable.

The investigation continued which led to others being accused of similar crimes. Aguilar was indicted on six counts of improper sexual activity with a person in custody. He was continued on an existing bond. He was arrested on Aug. 15, 2010, and released on a $20,000 bond. Charles was indicted on five counts of improper sexual activity with a person in custody. He was continued on existing bond. He was arrested on Aug. 27, 2010, and released on two bonds of $10,000 each. The bonds were set by Justice of the Peace Precinct 3 Jim Lane.

Public Records The dispatchers at the Live Oak County Criminal Justice Center received 270 complaint calls for the week of March 1-8. A young boy on a bike, riding around making the dogs bark going into alley ways and back out onto the streets, was turned in by a Three Rivers woman at 2:09 a.m. on March 1. A supervisor wanted to see if someone was available to do traffic control or at least just park at their location. Hopefully, that might slow some traffic down for his crew that is working along the highway. A truck was parked in the middle of the access road near Oakville when a man stopped to see if he needed a wrecker. A big fat guy told him to just go around him. When the caller told him to move his truck out of the middle of the road, the guy told him, “I don’t have to move it, I don’t know where I am going.� The caller advised that the big guy came toward him and his dog started barking, so the truck driver backed off and the caller went around him. There were no flashers on the truck and no cones out around it. Several people had to slam on their brakes and go around him. The responding deputy was unable to locate the truck. Someone was beating at her back window, according to a George West woman who said she was home alone with two kids. A woman reported that they were traveling north between George West and Three Rivers and realized that the trailer was missing from their truck. They were headed back south trying to find it. The responding George West police officer went six miles south and six miles north but was unable to locate the trailer. A clerk at a convenience store on IH37 advised that a small black vehicle was shooting trucks with a paint ball gun. A short time later, a Three Rivers policeman reported that he was out with the vehicle at a business on city square. The vehicle had shot paintballs at another business, also. All four subjects were detained. They were to be taken to clean up the damage they had caused, then to the Police Department. Eight

trucks were damaged at the convenience store. All subjects were released to their parents. A man stopped a DPS trooper to report his lost nephew who was driving a green cutlass. He was on a caliche road by rail road tracks somewhere. The uncle followed the trooper and was talking to his lost nephew on the phone. They would be driving around looking for him. A call was received from a man who advised their boat had turned over. The three people in the boat were just fine but need a game warden to come to the scene. A clerk at Choke Canyon State advised she had a game warden enroute to subject’s location. A woman advised that a white pickup truck with a red 18 wheeler in back nearly ran her over. He was driving very fast through town and was passing a business on Hwy. 281 at the time of call. A George West police officer stopped the speeder and found that he was wanted out of Ft. Worth/ Tarrant County. An arrest was made. A Three Rivers woman stated there was a man in her place of employment who needed to find a place to stay. He works locally and had been staying at a motel. His funds are low and now he needed to find another place to stay. She wondered if officers could help him as she needed to close her business. A truck driver said he saw a black Toyota pickup sitting on the side of the road near the prison with its lights on bright. When he flashed the pickup to get him to dim his lights, the pickup turned around in front of him and then slammed on his brakes, trying to get caller to follow him down a county road. A George West woman asked for an officer. The dispatcher could hear her arguing with a man. She said she was at the man’s house. She stated that he stole some things from her and that she needed a George West officer there. After a while, the officer reported that the woman had recovered some of her property and was en route to the police department to make a statement. A Three Rivers man

advised that he was at a business near the refinery. They saw some men in a silver car taking pictures of the refinery. He stated that they sounded foreign because when they asked the men what they were doing, they said they weren’t doing anything. They then got in the car and left heading towards Tilden. The vehicle turned out to be out of Tulsa, Okla.

The following are arrest records made through the Live Oak County Criminal Justice Center. Juanita Casas Torres, 50, of George West was arrested on Feb. 12 for simple assault. Analicia Pena, 22, of Three Rivers was arrested on Feb. 12 for simple assault. Joseph Michael Katzfey, 22, of George West was

During the warm-up, McCall will explain the sport history and philosophy.

One of the key things McCall will insist on in her classes is not using the word “can’t.” She calls it dropping a coconut, and she, like all instructors, does not allow it.

Another thing she emphasizes is not competing against others. This is a sport where anyone can compete against self.

“In Parkour, you don’t compete against the person next to you,” McCall said. “Competing against yourself is a lot harder in the long run.” The class will start with the basic moves.

“It’s a matter of perfecting the movement,” she said. “We want to build people up success by success.”

As the class progresses, the movements will get harder. McCall encourages people to come to class and see what they are capable of.

Lagarto club hears learns about bug control from Curry By DeOtta Meyer, Club Reporter Special to The Progress

Mr. Wayne Curry of Curryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nursery and Floral in Three Rivers was the guest speaker at the March meeting of the Lagarto Community Club. Members and husbands heard sound advice concerning environment friendly control for the weeds in their yards as well as the control of bugs, fungus and other plant/yard diseases. Mr. Curry brought several samples of â&#x20AC;&#x153;friendlyâ&#x20AC;? products which can be readily obtained from local businesses. For his efforts, he was presented with a copy of our book on the history of Lagarto compiled by Hattie Mae Hinnant New. For this meeting, St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day was the theme selected by Connie Reardon and Linda Avila. The decorations were bright and green, as one might guess, with the exception of the cake which stood alone in recognizing Texas Independence Day. Linda distributed the words for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Texas, Our Texasâ&#x20AC;? and had our talented ladies sing the song along with her. Barring any interference from the weather, the painting of trim on the outside of our building (the Old Lagarto Schoolhouse) should be completed soon.

Last year our booth at Pioneer Days in Orange Grove was a huge success and so our members have agreed to participate once more. We can sell raffle tickets and a few of our craft items. I encourage all who go to the Pioneer Days celebration to come and visit our booth. Rummage sale items are filling up our back room and the ladies have started pricing. Flyers have been made and are being distributed.

Texas Brigade camps to be held in summer Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never too early to start thinking about summer, so next summer you should think about attending one of the Texas Brigades. The Texas Brigades are a group of camps which main purpose is to inform the next generation about wildlife management and conservation and how they are important. These camps are held in the months of June and July. The Texas Brigades are youth leadership camps that use different games and hands-on activities to grow team skills and the

ability to be a leader in different situations. The youth, or the cadets, attending this four and a half day long camp will do activities such as plant and insect collecting, habitat evaluation, firearm safety and shooting, interviews, and maybe even some taxidermy. They will learn how to work with their group and be able to grow and build up each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strong points and make friends that will last a lifetime. The Brigade camps are for ages 13-17 and are a great way to meet new people who have an inter-

LOC libraries receive awards The Live Oak County Library in George West was recently awarded brand new non-fiction books that relate to Texas and its history. These books value at $500 and are Texas A&M University Press Consortium publications ranging in titles from “Living Waters of Texas” to “Sacrificed At The Alamo”. These books come as a gift from the Collection E n h a n c e m e n t Program of the Tocker Foundation. In a letter sent to the library, Texas A&M University Press Director Charles Backus stated: “The staff of Texas A&M University Press joins the Tocker Foundation in appreciation of your efforts in making books and other knowledge resources available to your community.” The Libraries also received a donation of

art books from the Art Resources Transfer, Inc.’s DUC Library Program. These books were given to the Three Rivers Library free of charge through the program with the intention, stated by DUC program manager Judith M. Smith in a letter to the library, to “help…build a strong contemporary art collection that your patrons or students will enjoy for years to come.” Ten books were received through the program ranging from artists like Phil Collins to subjects including Hurricane Katrina. The books donated to the Live Oak County Libraries can be viewed in-library or by typing ”A&M University Press” or “DUC Program” at the library’s online catalog at https://liveoak.biblionix.com. For more library information, search ‘Live Oak County Libraries’ on Facebook.

Coastal Bend College was recently named George West Chamber of Commerce Member of the Month, an honor given to local businesses for their impact on the county. George West Cham member of the month“Coastal Bend College is proud to be a good partner with George West Chamber of Commerce, as well as with all chambers of commerce in our service area,” said CBC Dean of Institutional Advancement Glynis Holm Strause, a lifelong resident of George West. Strause was named to the Chamber of Commerce Wall of Honor in 2010. “It is important for us that the citizens of our service area where there is not a campus know that we are available to them to meet their needs for credit, non-credit, dual credit and online courses.” CBC is a full-service public twoyear community college with aca-

demic transfer and workforce credit courses, online courses, customized and continuing education, and dual credit courses. Approximately 3,500 students, including hundreds each year from Live Oak County, are served. The 47 year-old institution has 250 employees, including Live Oak County residents: Dianne Addison, Mary Kay Best, Mark Brown, Evelyn Cook, Floyd Green, Jeanene Jones, Ed Massey, Jeri Morton, Heather Sheffield, Josie Schuenemann, Kristy Schroeder, Becky Simonson, Ben Tanguma, Millie Powell and April Zapata. The college has campuses in Beeville, Alice, Kingsville and Pleasanton. Classes are also taught online and at CBC Lott Canada Facility in Beeville, where adult basic education, English as a Second Language, and GED® classes are

held. Coastal Bend College was formed in 1965 and began classes in 1967 as Bee County College. In 1998, with a change in the service area to include nine counties (Atascosa, Bee, Brooks, Duval, Jim Wells, Karnes, Kleberg, Live Oak and McMullen), it was renamed Coastal Bend College to reflect this expanded mission. Within the Customized and Continuing Education Department, the Petroleum Industry Training program seeks to provide training customized for the petroleum industry serving the Eagle Ford Shale play. Coastal Bend College is involved in activities and organizations in all nine counties it serves. CBC is proud to be a member of the George West Chamber of Commerce and to provide dual credit classes to students in Live Oak County.

Marcus Cruz honored at City Hall Buenos dias! Our brother, Marcus Cruz was honored with a retirement reception at Three Rivers City Hall on Thursday, March 8. As all his former co-workers and family walked in, we were able to sign a poster with photos of him and city employees in different job sites around the city. It brought back a lot of memories of some of the job sites that were actually news items reported in the Progress newspaper at different times. On June 7, it would have been 38 years that Marcus was hired by the City of Three Rivers. But since his birthday was Feb. 22, he decided to officially resign then. In 1974, things were different at City Hall. Marcus and his crew employees worked for the water department, the gas department, the water plant, maintenance and any other job that was needed in any emergency within the city. (Marcus was able to memorize where all the water lines were and which jobs required extra equipment prior to the use of computers at that time.) It wasn’t until Tom Nance was hired later that the city departments were headed by different individuals that included David Darling with the gas department which is now managed by Venamar Lopez; Steve Bernal at the water plant; Darrell Pullin at the water department and Marcus headed the MCR (maintenance, construction and repair) department. This MCR position is now headed by Claudio Cantu. Like any supervisors’ position, there are different challenges that go with the job, but I am proud of my brother’s job performance and the dedication and respect that he had for his coworkers. We could also feel the

NOTICE OF APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION FOR NONHAZARDOUS WASTE UNDERGROUND INJECTION CONTROL PERMIT AMENDMENT PERMIT NOS. WDW418 and WDW419 APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. South Texas Mining Venture, L.L.P., 500 N. Shoreline Blvd., Suite 800 N. Corpus Christi, TX 78401 has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for major amendments of the waste disposal well permits for the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s La Palangana in situ uranium mining site in Duval County. The proposed permit amendments would authorize change to the location of WDW418, raise the top of the injection interval to include additional sands, and decrease the maximum injection rate and volume for WDW 418 and increase the maximum injection rate and volume for WDW419. The facility is located at 5720 FM 3196, Benavides, TX 78341 in Duval County, Texas. TCEQ received the application on August 18, 2011. The following link to an electronic map of the site or facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general location is provided as a public courtesy and is not part of the application or notice: http://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/ index.html?lat=27.678608&lng=-98.412674&zoom=12&Type=r. For exact location, refer to application. The TCEQ Executive Director has completed the technical review of the application and prepared a draft permit. The draft permit, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this permit, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements. The permit application, Executive Directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at the Duval County Courthouse, 400 E. Gravis, San Diego, TX 78384. PUBLIC COMMENT/ PUBLIC MEETING. You may submit public comments or request a public meeting about this application. The purpose of a public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comments or to ask questions about the application. TCEQ holds a public meeting if the Executive Director determines that there is a significant degree of public interest in the application or if requested by a local legislator. A public meeting is not a contested case hearing. OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTESTED CASE HEARING. After the deadline for submitting public comments, the Executive Director will consider all timely comments and prepare a response to all relevant and material, or significant public comments. Unless the application is directly referred for a contested case hearing, the response to comments will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments and to those persons who are on the mailing list for this application. If comments are received, the mailing will also provide instructions for requesting a contested case hearing or reconsideration of the Executive Directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in a state district court. TO REQUEST A CONTESTED CASE HEARING, YOU MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS IN YOUR REQUEST: your name; address; phone; applicantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name and permit number; the location and distance of your property/activities relative to the facility; a specific description of how you would be adversely affected by the facility in a way not common to the general public; and the statement â&#x20AC;&#x153;[I/we] request a contested case hearing.â&#x20AC;? If the request for contested case hearing is filed on behalf of a group or association, the request must designate the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representative for receiving future correspondence; identify an individual member of the group who would be adversely affected by the facility or activity; provide the information discussed above regarding the affected memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s location and distance from the facility or activity; explain how and why the member would be affected; and explain how the interests the group seeks to protect are relevant to the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purpose. Following the close of all applicable comment and request periods, the Executive Director will forward the application and any requests for reconsideration or for a contested case hearing to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting. The Commission will only grant a contested case hearing on disputed issues of fact that are relevant and material to the Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision on the application. Further, the Commission will only grant a hearing on issues that were raised in timely filed comments that were not subsequently withdrawn. EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ACTION. The Executive Director may issue final approval of the application unless a timely contested case hearing request or request for reconsideration is filed. If a timely hearing request or request for reconsideration is filed, the Executive Director will not issue final approval of the permit and will forward the application and request to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting. MAILING LIST. If you submit public comments, a request for a contested case hearing or a reconsideration of the Executive Directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision, you will be added to the mailing list for this application to receive future public notices mailed by the Office of the Chief Clerk. In addition, you may request to be placed on: (1) the permanent mailing list for a specific applicant name and permit number; and/or (2) the mailing list for a specific county. To be placed on the permanent and/or the county mailing list, clearly specify which list(s) and send your request to TCEQ Office of the Chief Clerk at the address below. AGENCY CONTACTS AND INFORMATION All public comments and requests must be submitted within 30 days from the date of newspaper publication of this notice either electronically at www.tceq.texas.gov/about/comments.html or in writing to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, Office of the Chief Clerk, MC-105, P.O.

Today’s question: So just what’s in a name? Some religious people wear a man’s name. Other groups wear the name of an organization. God’s people wear His name. The Bible specifically tells us that Christ’s disciples were called ‘Christians,’ Acts 11:26. What’s in a name? To the world the name ‘Christian’ has varied meanings, but to most of us it means one who surrenders his life to Christ, one who is Christlike and one who shares the attributes of Christ.

CARD OF THANKS The family of Melissa Weber wish to thank everyone who participated in the benefit for her this weekend. The outpouring of love and service shown by this community was overwhelming to Melissa, Mark and Rocky and they wish to thank each and every one of you for your service. Matthew 18:20 says “For where two or three are assembled in my name, I am there among them.” And the presence of the Lord was strongly felt as friends and family gathered to support the Weber family. Thank you one and all for your help and love. The Weber Family

Box 280, Jourdanton, Texas 78026 has submitted its application to the Railroad Commission of Texas to renew and revise its surface mining Permit 11F at the San Miguel Lignite Mine in Atascosa County, Texas. This application is made up of six volumes and three supplements. Supplement 1 has three volumes, Supplement 2 has two volumes and Supplement 3 has one volume. Maps were updated in Supplement 1 to reflect accurate boundary lines following a survey. A five-year permit term is requested. The permit area contains approximately 16,000 acres. San Miguel has an additional permitted mine, Permit 52, located in Atascosa County, Texas, approximately 16 miles south of Jourdanton, Texas and 6 miles south of Christine, Texas on FM 3387. The proposed renewal/revision area is located adjacent to and southwest of the Permit 52 area and within the area of the “Caballos Creek”, “Christine East” and “Christine NE” U.S. Geologic Survey 7.5-minute quadrangle map. The mine areas A and E are mined out and predominantly reclaimed except for permanent roads and pits for disposal of coal combustion products. San Miguel proposes mining approximately 380.6 acres from four seams that are continuous across the permit area (Table .119-1, Supplement 3). The area to be mined within the proposed permit term is shown on Exhibit 139-1 (Sheets 1 through 5), Supplement 3 and Exhibit 139-2 (Sheets 1 through 5), Supplement 2.

Additional coring information to characterize the areas proposed for mining, updated groundwater information including an inventory of groundwater wells located within one mile of the permit boundary can be found in Sections 12.127 and 12.128 of the application. The water well inventory provides the information and the locations of the 29 private or industrial wells that are located within one mile of the permit boundary (Exhibit .128-2 and description Table .128-7, found in Volume I of the original permit application). Section 12.145, Supplement 3 of the Renewal/Revision contains the reclamation plans. Topsoil is proposed to be removed and replaced. Subsoil will be hauled back and placed prior to placement of topsoil and there will be topsoil and haulback material stockpiles. Backfilling and grading variances for up to 800 days from coal removal are requested due to pit lengths, disposal of coal combustion products in pit areas in Area E (flyash, flue gas desulfurization material, and bottom ash) (Exhibit 139-2, Supplement 1), and to optimize the use of the dragline. Several sections of the renewal/ revision application refer to information located in previous applications that are on file with the county clerkʼs offices including baseline and premine information. The renewal/ revision application incudes updated information for federal and state listed endangered and threatened species, a listing of premine aquatic-associated habitats, additional soils information, a plan to protect and enhance fish and wildlife resources; revised wetland mitigation plans (Supplement 1) reclamation timetables (Tables 145-1, 145-2 and 145-3 in Supplement 3) a summary of reclamation costs, as revised in Supplement 3, Appendix 1451, Table .145-1-16, and bond map, Exhibit .145-1-1, Sheets 1-5 and adjustment maps Exhibit 145-1-2, five sheets. The notice should state that the application includes proposed postmine topography depicted on Exhibit .145-1, Sheets 1 through 5, proposed postmine slopes, Exhibit 145-4, a new Exhibit 133-1 Waters of the U.S. (Supplement 3). The renewal/revision application includes a revised probable hydrologic consequences

determination, Section 12.146 of Supplement 3, including a comparison of operations for Areas A and E for conditions during mining and postmining and a prediction of probable hydrologic consequences for Area B, summarizing effects predicted due to depressurization activities, including computermodeled simulations for the fivefoot drawdown contour resulting from depressurization (Exhibit .146A-1-1, Supplement 3) that may extend approximately 14,000 feet beyond the permit area to the southeast. Appendix .146A-3 contains the Area A Seep Investigation Report containing recommendations regarding the groundwater seeps in the box-cut spoil seep area in Area A and regarding additional investigative activities in the Pond 11 Area. The probable effects on streamflow and water quality are included in Section 12.146B. Postmine land use changes are proposed. San Miguel proposes the following postmine land uses: approximately 86% pastureland, 10.0% industrial/ commercial and 4.0% developed water resources. There are general design plans for seven reclamation ponds and eight proposed diversions. Detailed design plans for these structures were submitted in previous revisions to the permit. Interested persons are invited to submit written comments on the application within thirty days after the last date of publication of this notice in a local newspaper. Requests for hearing shall be submitted within 45 days of the last date of publication of the notice; notice will be published once each week for four consecutive weeks. All written comments, objections, or requests for public hearing or informal conference on the application should be directed to: Docket No. C8-0024-SC-11C, Docket Services Office of General Counsel Railroad Commission of Texas P.O. Box 12967 Austin, Texas 78711-2967 A copy of the complete application may be inspected in the main office of the Railroad Commission of Texas at 1701 North Congress, William B Travis Building, Austin, Texas; in the Office of the County Clerk, Atascosa County Courthouse, Circle Drive No. 41, Jourdanton, Texas; and in the Office of the County Clerk, McMullen County Courthouse, 501 River Street, Tilden, Texas. The application may be supplemented and should be reviewed periodically.
