I had the extreme honor of sitting on an Eagle Scout review board for one of the finest young men I have ever had the pleasure to meet. After extensive questioning, the board voted unanimously to advance Hunter Inglish to the rank of Eagle Scout.

Congratulations Hunter. I expect you to accomplish great things!

On this Memorial Day, we have so much to be thankful for. Our entire way of life in America and the freedom we enjoy are due to the sacrifices of our brave men and women in the military. Do more than be thankful this Memorial Day. Find a Veteran and thank them personally for all they’ve done and the sacrifices they’ve made. ... See MoreSee Less

Constable Michael Torres and I survived the entire Leadership Challenge Course of the Texas Constables Leadership College at the Bill Blackwood Law Enforcement Management Institute in Huntsville. We were a little tired but no worse for wear.

It was a great day in the woods with 20 other constables, command staff, and supervisors, learning about each other, ourselves and being valuable members of a team. All these physical and mental exercises and the academic portions of the training are designed to help us become strong, successful leaders who are prepared to serve our citizens to the best of our ability.

Once Constable Torres and I graduate, all five of your Hays County Constables along with several of our deputies will have completed the Texas Constables Leadership College. That is pretty rare and I believe it demonstrates our combined commitment to excellence for the people we serve.

Travel through the intersection of Old San Antonio Road at Manchaca Springs will be restricted to local traffic for the next several weeks. A new turn lane for the new HCISD elementary school is being added there and the amount of traffic through the area is putting workers in danger. Weather permitting, the intersection will be complete in early April. The restriction is in effect 24/7 until then. ... See MoreSee Less

Buda, Texas
Precinct 5 Constable John Ellen, Deputy Constable Cody Feagan, and Deputy Constable Alice Flores participated in the Operation Lifesaver task force with the Department of Public Safety and Union Pacific Railroad. The Buda Constable’s Office along with Department of Public Safety Troopers, identified violations and initiated enforcement action against drivers who violated the law by crossing railroad tracks when the red lights or safety gates were activated.
According to Constable Ellen, the intent of the operation was to identify offenders and educate them about the law and crossing safety. “The Constable’s Office issued 9 warnings in a two hour period to drivers who crossed illegally. We issued warnings rather than citations in this instance because our intent was to educate drivers and gain voluntary compliance.” Constable Ellen said.
The Buda Constable’s Office will continue to participate with the task force as well as educate drivers about the dangers crossing railroad tracks once the red lights are activated. Constable Ellen said, “I want to remind drivers that as long as the red crossing lights are activated, even if the gates are not yet down, it is not legal to cross. We have experienced railroad related fatalities in Buda in the past. The Constable’s Office will continue to enforce the law and educate the public in an effort to ensure that no more unnecessary deaths occur.”
