Atascosa County Judge’s Report



My granddaughter who lives in Phoenix is doing well, recovering from “Lemierre’s syndrome”. She is in her fourth week of intensive antibiotic treatment at home rest and is making steady progress. In the next week or two she will go back for a full scan and blood tests. Her visit with her pulmonologist will be then also. She may be able to go back to college in January. I use this space to tell you this because so many people read my column when I said I was going to see her a couple of weeks ago and why. She did nearly die. That is not overstated. And, so many have told me they have been praying. My heart is full from the concern showed by all of those who have cared. Thank you does not cover it.

We have moved into the Justice Center and will be holding court there. Adult probation and the County Attorney’s offices are moved. I wish I could say the building was complete, but the contractor doesn’t seem to be able to get the final details done and some are important – like doors for the holding cells. It is 98% done but the 2% is aggravating. The contractor does fabulous work but cannot get everything done yet.

I want to thank the Pleasanton Express for allowing me to write this column and for their coverage of county business in 2018. The Wilkersons are a blessing to this county. In this New Year, I pray for prosperity, health and happiness for every person in Atascosa County. May it be a great year for you!

Thanks for listening.

We want you to be proud of your County Government.
