Harrup inspired scarecrow wins

Residents took to Facebook to vote in the annual Scarecrow Contest, hosted by the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce, choosing Cub Scout Pack 668 as the first place winner in the Youth division after the group dedicated their scarecrow to Keith Harrup. Military veteran Harrup recently passed away in a motorcycle accident and his son is a new scout this year.

“Honestly, we wanted to do it for his kids,” said scout mom Tiffany Williams. “His son is a new scout this year and we wanted to show our love and support to him and his family through the brotherhood of scouting, much like the brotherhood of all our armed forces.”

This meeting was designed to open dialog between the two cities regarding the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Department (TDCJ) Boyd Unit and the Interlocal Definitive Agreement (IDA) signed by the two parties.

"We agreed to take part in a group discussion," Fairfield Mayor Kenny Hughes said. "We believe there have been some misunderstandings but we are in the process of litigation and I'm not sure what we can discuss openly."

As heavy rain threatened, the Eagles lined up for the district cross country meet on their own course. After months of training and hours of anticipation, the runners gave the district meet their all and secured their place at the regional meet.

The varsity boys placed second as a team, and for the ninth year in a row, the varsity girls earned the title of District Champs. Following a successful District meet on Oct. 9 in Fairfield, both teams will travel to Huntsville to compete in the Regional meet on Oct. 22.  The only JV boy to place was Leon Rosales, finishing 21st with a time of 20:50.35.
