Pleas in Cleveland Rape Case: Two more of the remaining Cleveland gang rape suspects have received deferred adjudication probation in exchange for guilty pleas to a lesser charge of Indecency with a Child by Exposure. Xavier King was sentenced on April 1 and Devo Shaun Green on April 22 in the 75th District Court. Xavier King was arrested on Thursday, April 18, with three others in San Jacinto County for Deadly Conduct while Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity in connection with a drive-by shooting in Coldspring. He is free on $100,000 bond on that second degree felony charge.  


District Clerk Raises: KSHN has reported on the increases in certain departments’ salaries awarded by several elected county officials while other county staffers have gone years without a pay raise. Most department heads accomplished this by redistributing the salaries of those who have left the county’s employment to remaining staff members. The exception to that is District Clerk Donna Brown. While Mrs. Brown did raise the salaries of most of her employees, it was not a case of redistribution. Instead, according to Mrs. Brown, when she took office, her budget contained $2,600 from past countywide salary raises that had never been passed on to her department’s workers. After consulting with County Judge Craig McNair, Brown said she used that previously budgeted but unused money to give raises. The total salary being used was $299,237 while the actual district clerk employee salary budget was $301,837.


Hardin ISD: The Hardin school board has approved the purchase of 110 more Google Chromebooks for its students who will be enrolled in seventh grade during the coming 2013-14 school year. Hardin trustees decided back in Nov. 2012 to purchase the first group of 220 Chromebooks for students then enrolled in seventh and eighth grades. Once assigned to an individual student, that child will take the laptop computer with them as he or she advances through high school. Home use is recommended to allow students to expand, even further, their learning outside the school setting. The final price tag for the recent purchase was $29,907, which includes carrying cases.


Obituaries: Allie Darlene Heugatter, 64, of Dayton. Service is 11 a.m. Sunday, May 5, at Sterling Funeral Home.
