Campus Carry law effective Monday

Denise Cervantes - Special to the Record | Texas Senate Bill 11 (SB 11), also known as “Campus Carry” will go into effect Monday. SB 11 was signed into law by Texas Governor Greg Abbott June 1, 2015 and will allow concealed handgun license (CHL) holders to carry a concealed handgun in public university campuses, such as Texas State University. The handgun may not be visible, either partially or wholly. Each Texas public university must comply with the bill and regulate their own campus carry rules.

Dryland farmer says road will spoil his organic certification

Nick Reddy - Special to the Record |

On Tuesday, July 19, the Hays County Commissioner Court revisited a familiar issue. Tim Miller, owner of Millberg Farm in Kyle, brought to the court’s attention information which he says they’ve heard already many times before, but has fallen on deaf ears.

The proposed reroute of FM 150 will cut through his property and, he says, damage his organic farming certification.
