Judge orders declaration of disaster in Hardin County

By Daniel Elizondo

Hardin County Judge Wayne McDaniel issued a Declaration of Disaster on Tuesday, March 29, following an estimate of damages from floods that occurred between March 8-11.

McDaniel issued the proclamation and submitted the declaration to Gov. Greg Abbott in Austin.

“We received an estimate of damages from the Village Creek State Park in Lumberton this morning, which, in addition to other damages we have been tracking since the floods, exceeds our threshold amount to declare a disaster,” he said in a release.

The declaration along with other documentations was forwarded to Gov. Abbott via the Texas Department of Emergency Management.

If approved, this will allow Hardin County citizens, who were affected by the flooding that occurred earlier this month, to apply for assistance.

County ceremony dedicates highway to fallen game warden

By Daniel Elizondo

Fallen area game warden Wesley W. Wagstaff was given a memorial on Wednesday at the Hardin County courthouse, after a 2-year long process to have FM 1293 in Kountze dedicated in his memory.

Wagstaff, 41, was tragically killed on FM 1293 18 miles west of Kountze in a head-on collision that killed him and 36-year-old Kimberly Ann Loftin on Aug. 5, 2003.

According to reports, Wagstaff was answering a call of illegal hunting in the Big Thicket.

“Today we honor Wesley Wagstaff when he answered that call, not knowing it was going to be his last,” Game Warden Peace Officers Association (GWPOA) President Robbie Robinson said on Wednesday at the dedication. “And today we continue to honor him forever by continuing to answer that call.”
