Local woman arrested for online trafficking

Combined efforts of McLennan County and Freestone County Sheriff’s Offices have led to the arrest Wednesday, Jan. 2, of a Mexia teacher, accused of trafficking a child online to people in Morocco.

Amber Parker, 37, is employed as an eighth-grade reading teacher, according to the Mexia ISD website. Her Facebook page lists her as a resident of Teague.

More details will be published as The Fairfield Recorder has them confirmed.


Veterans Day photos wanted

The Fairfield Recorder is recognizing local veterans for our annual Veterans Appreciation section to be published in November.

Departments present budgets to CoF council

Several departments presented their budget proposals to Fairfield city councilmen Monday, Aug. 27, but no decisions will be made until closer to October. Leslie Tate, Freestone County Historical Museum board treasurer, presented their budget requesting $40,000 – the regular $15,000 operating costs plus an additional $25,000 for the 1880s Freestone County Jail project.

Tate said the board is hoping to continue with the project by removing any interior walls not original to the building, relocating the stairs to the original place, and stabilizing the floor.

Freestone County gave the museum $10,000 in operating costs, but chose to give none for the project.

City of Teague researches agreement with Fairfield

*The headline "Teague to end 30-year agreeement with Fairfield" in this week's Recorder was misleading. It should have read "City of Teague researches agreement with Fairfield."

Teague's Board of Alderman received information on April 16 from Teague City Administrator Theresa Prasil that City Attorney Linda Sjogren, attorney for Bojorquez Law Firm in Austin, wants to address the council to present them with a new Interlocal Definitive Agreement for Teague to step out of a new bond that the City of Fairfield wants to take out.
