WALKER CO SHERIFF CALLED OUT AS "THE ONLY ONE"
US Senate Judicary hearing into the abject failure of the FBI to adequately investigate and persue prosecution of those in a position of power who failed the female gymnasts molested by Larry Nassar named The Walker County Sheriff and his investigators as the "Only ones" who were diligent in their efforts to seek justice for these girls. Nassar was prosecuted and imprisoned but the 'networking' of people who exploit and abuse children is big business. Evidence Sheriff could have used to shine some light on who was allowing this activity to go on in the big dollar organization was withheld. From the female nurse who damn sure should have been present for any 'exam' failed. Who ever was saddled with the public trust to make sure that female nurse had integrity and character and was there failed.
None of the gymnasts were supporting or extoling the virtue of the FBI or their agents in the case and infact cited incident after incident where the FBI not only failed to investigate and interview but went out of their way to thwart the investigation and intimidate the girls in an attempt to cower them into silence. Any therapist will tell you that speaking of traumatic stress in your life is part of the healing process.
The testimony that came out in the hearing showed that Sheriff McRae and his Detectives were diligent in thier effort since the Bella Koroli gymnastic facility was in Walker County but that the FBI refused them access to the evidence they were trying to collect. That is a bass akwards approach to Law enforcement. Yeah you feds with the big bucks and hi tech labs are worth your weight in gold to a rural community but to hamstring the man elected by the people and keep him from doing the job he was elected to do is just some self aggrandizing federal BS. It is our neck of the woods, not yours.
It came out later in the testimony that one of the FBI agents who kept Sheriff McRae from getting the evidence has been charged with evidence handling crimes but has pled not guilty. Others who failed the girls were allowed to resign and collect a pension in lieu of being prosecuted.
I said all of that to say this. It was like a Deja Vu of what we have suffered in Polk county when evidence submitted to the Texas Rangers and FBI disappears and no witness is interviewed or evidence collected in answer to the outcry of the people to oust the corrupt DA, William Lee Hon for his crimes. The ignorance of those charged with the privilege and the duty of protecting we the people have instead ground a long time child advocate and civil rights activist into observing that, "Their power is in ignoring us". They have ground a 30 year retired federal agent into observing the non responsive manner of current administration to our plight.
Allowing the current state of affairs of our highest leadership to exist is an indictment of we the people who don't speak up. In that vein, Mexicans, Negroes and Caucasians have joined our voices together but still we are ignored. Male and female, fat and skinny, ugly and pretty have spoken out to no avail. One woman referred to the uselessness of reporting harrassment to Polk Co higher ups because, "They got their zipper down too".
ANGELINA COUNTY 5/13/2021
DA JAILS MAN FOR HAVING PHONE
The East Texas Reporter has been jailed on a bond revocation hearing for posessing a phone. David Stua was originally jailed in Dec of 2018 on a charge of 'Sexual Performanace of a Child' for telling two teenage minors on the college campus that he believed in Circumcision and then asked, "Do you want to see the proof?"
Stua's live stream video interviews were transmitted from the Angelina College campus where the librarian had called the law on him for using the word 'circumcision' in the library earlier that week. In protest of what he considered censorship, Stua began live streaming to FB as he asked several on the campus if they 'wanted to see the proof' after expressing his belief in circumcision. Stua would then display a certificate that stated that he believed in circumcision.
The campus cop who filed the affidavit was watching the live stream as it occurred but did not effect the arrest then but waited a week. The minors nor their parents filed a complaint according to Stua. In his affidavit (a sworn statement that would subject the affiant to perjury charges for lying), the officer stated in his arrest affidavit that Stua asked the minors if they wanted to see his genitals. Stua adamantly denies that allegation and contends the language was used to get him indicted.
The live stream video has been taken down but is in the posession of the DA. The alleged crime occured over two years ago and was live streamed but the DA does not seem able to get that case to court but instead, goes for bond revocation because the man, who is required to work to pay fees associated with his bond has a phone.
According to Stua, he was offered a plea deal that included him never asking for open records again. The kicker is, both judges involved and the DA have born the brunt of Stua's open records requests and both judges, according to Stua, refused to produce records he requested and he had written them with his intention to sue both judges for those records just prior to his arrest.
The statute used to charge Stua was written to prosecute monsters who induce children to committ a sex act so they can film them to produce child porn. The next paragraph of the statute speaks to the parents who allow that activity being prosecuted.
The judge who set the bond conditions, who had been targeted by Stua, forbid Stua to have any device with a camera or seek open records while on bond. David Stua was born and raised in Angelina county and has never been in trouble before but his bond conditons were excessive compared to past cases of actual child predators in Angelina County.
Joe Martin was the DA who accepted the week old affidavit and moved forward for the indictment without a complaint by the minors or their parents. We all know that Joe Martin was trained by the Corrupt Lee Hon out of Polk county on how to silence pesky open record seeking, proof publishing reporters. Martin used the same lying statements to get me indicted on false charges there for seeking open records and publishing proof of DA Hon's many crimes.
If the video proves that David Stua never asked the minor if he wanted to "see my genitals', the cop needs to be prosecuted for his crime. Unless he is killed in jail for the nature of his charges, Stua will get to court and possibly beat the charges but even if he does, he can't beat the ride. As is the norm for all corruption in the criminal justice system and as I have said after studying the 600 plus dismissals in four years for lack of evidence in Hon's office, "The process is the punishment".

AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Transportation presented the 2019 Most Improved Airport award to the Angelina County Airport recently at the 37th annual Texas Aviation Conference in Galveston.
Implementing an airport improvement program grant, airport officials began an ambitious project to improve pavement surfaces that included removing and reinstalling portions of a taxiway and asphalt around existing hangars. Pavement rehabilitation was completed on all remaining taxiway and runway surfaces that were not replaced.
In addition to the pavement rehabilitation, taxiways and runways were also repainted, increasing visibility and enhancing safety. Drainage improvements were also made.
The airport also utilized federal funding grants to support self-service fuel pumps, upgrades to hangars, fuel tank electronic repairs, security cameras and lighting improvements.
“This year’s most improved airport epitomizes true teamwork, as they utilized their available resources to completely revamp an airport that, over time, has become popular for business aviation, training, and recreational flying,” said David S. Fulton, TxDOT Aviation Division Director. “Congratulations and thank you for your commitment to service.”

LUFKIN – Work is scheduled to begin Wednesday on a busy roadway and a bridge/flyover in Lufkin that will require closures.
The US 59 Southbound overpass/flyover is scheduled to be closed on Wednesday and Thursday nights so that crews can perform preventative maintenance.
The bridge maintenance is planned from 9 pm to 6 am on Wednesday and Thursday and includes joint sealing on the flyover bridge that will require the closure during work hours. Work is expected to be completed by Friday morning.
Work will also begin Wednesday morning on Business 69 South/Chestnut Drive between Denman Avenue and Timberland Drive.

Work is expected to be completed within two weeks, weather permitting.
Motorists should reduce speed and obey all signage through these work zones. Stay alert for workers, moving equipment and detours that will be in place throughout the work areas.
U.S. 59 speed limit increased
LUFKIN – The Texas Transportation Commission recently approved a change in the speed limit on U.S. 59 South in San Jacinto County.
The speed limit will be increased from 60 miles per hour to 70 miles per hour from the city limits of Shepherd to just south of FM 2914. Crews will place the updated speed limit signs in coming days. The speed limit is enforceable once signs are set.
The Texas Transportation Code empowers the Texas Transportation Commission to alter speed limits on any part of the state highway system as determined from the results of an engineering and traffic investigation conducted on specific segments of the roadway. The newly approved speed limit has been determined to be a reasonable and safe maximum speed for this segment of U.S. 59.
Motorists are urged to obey all traffic control devices, speed limits and stay alert to workers as the new signs are placed.

TRINITY COUNTY TxDOT EMPLOYEE GIVEN STATE AWARD
Oct. 13, 2016
LUFKIN – A Trinity County TxDOT Maintenance employee is a recipient of the Texas Department of Transportation’s Extra Mile Award after he helped a woman who was trapped in floodwaters recently.
Terry King, a contract inspector with the TxDOT Lufkin District, was honored with the award this week at the 90th Annual Transportation Short Course in College Station hosted by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute. The award is given each year to TxDOT employees who go above and beyond what is expected in stressful situations to help others. Texas Transportation Commissioner Laura Ryan and TxDOT Executive Director James Bass presented King with the award.
King was monitoring FM 1280 at Gayle Creek near Lovelady during a spring flood when an elderly woman approached the rising water in a small SUV. King advised the woman not to drive through the water, but she made the decision to attempt to maneuver through the rising water. The SUV was quickly washed from the roadway into a ditch where it became wedged against a fence.
The woman exited her vehicle and was barely able to stand in the rushing water. Seeing her stumble, King quickly positioned his TxDOT truck on the centerline of FM 1280 and exited his vehicle, wading into waist-deep water before reaching the woman. Pushing through the water himself, he took her by the arm, and helped her to the nearby TxDOT vehicle. He was then able to drive his TxDOT vehicle out of the water. The woman was uninjured and her car was towed from the scene.
Lufkin District Engineer Cheryl Flood said she is proud of King and other district employees who display courage and commitment.
“This past spring was extremely wet and kept our maintenance personnel very busy insuring the safety of the traveling public in many of our nine counties within the Lufkin District. Though these maintenance employees work all hours of the day and night monitoring high water, they never fail to go beyond their job duties to protect others, Flood said. “Terry King is another example of the dedication that TxDOT employees display in serving the people in East Texas and ensuring their safety. I’m so proud of Terry’s actions to rescue this woman who exited her vehicle in a fast moving creek and then struggled to remain standing in the swift water. Terry’s quick actions may have averted a tragic ending. He definitely went the extra mile to ensure the woman’s safety, and this recognition is truly deserved.”
King has been employed by TxDOT for 12 years.

“Arizona is positioned to lead the nation in protecting our citizens’ civil right to free, fair and secure elections.
“Integrity in our elections doesn’t benefit one political party over another; election integrity benefits every single voter regardless of political party, race, gender or income. Period.
“The Department of Justice’s recent decision to publicly target Arizona lawmakers for excercising our constitutional authority over elections is an abhorrent abuse of power and a starkly accurate representation of the disgusting politicization that has occurred within this federal institution.
“Let us, as Arizona lawmakers, be very clear with the Biden Administration and its minions: The Constitution of the United States expressley authorizes our legislative oversight and control of elections. Stay the hell out of our way.”
