By Daniel Elizondo
 
Reid Barker of Plano could only pray to God for hours on end as he watched his wife Lisa suffer through illness in ICU for several days.

It was a trying time for the young couple that had just married two years prior to begin their life as husband and wife.

One moment, Lisa was preparing to enjoy a wedding party with friends in February 2014 when she felt ill. The next moment, Reid could only watch his wife suffer through pain and suffering with no answers after a routine surgery.

No shows for county public hearing

Hardin County officials discuss timeline leading to officials seeking certificate of obligations

By Daniel Elizondo

Hardin County Judge Wayne McDaniel Jr. and county commissioners were set to hear what the public had to say about seeking certificates of obligation to help fund the construction of a new county annex building.

The scheduled meeting is a part of policy, as the county prepares to seek the CO’s in the amount of $1.1 million.

While county officials were ready to hear the public outcry, it all turned into a moot point when no one showed up to voice their concerns.

However, thanks to legislative laws, a second public hearing is set for Monday, June 20 at the Hardin County courthouse, set promptly for 6 p.m.
