Constable Morris Issues Warnings Of Illegal Sales Here
Constable Wade Morris says he has received numerous complaints from citizens about local people being affected by the use of rubbing alcohol, extracts, Bay Rum, and canned heat.
Morris has warned the local merchants of the danger involved when people purchase these products for human consumption.
County Attorney Tibby Wright stated "a person who is convicted for knowingly selling these products for human consumption faces a fine of $100 to $1,000.00, or one year in prison, or both."
The Constable said he is asking the co-operation of merchants in this serious matter as an effort in curbing the purchase of such items by users in this area.

Rules Changed For Candidates Filing For School Trustee
The old 10-day law concerning filing of candidates for their name to appear on a ballot for election in trustee elections has been changed to a longer period of 30 days.
Fannin County Judge Choice Moore calls everyone's attention to the fact that the law now provides:
"That any person desiring to have his name placed on the original ballot as a candidate for the position of trustee of a Common School District, or an Independent School District, must file his name at least thirty (30) days before the election. A written request must be filed with the County Judge and the said request must be signed by five (5) or more resident qualified voters in the School District."
This notice is given to the public since there might be some people who still think that the old ten-day law is in effect.
