Council discusses
permits, decorations
jacksboronewspapers. com
To start the Jacksboro City
council meeting Tuesday,
Debra Salazar, wife of lo-
cal contractor Juan Salazar,
brought to the council her
concerns over other contrac-
tors that appear to be working
in the city without permits.
She also questioned that she
had requested contract infor-
mation from the City that she
had not received.
According to City Man-
ager Mike Smith, “What you
(Salazar) were given was the
contract. There is nothing
Smith also advised that the
city had started printing per-
mits on yellow paper, and
that contractors are required
to post them before they start
the work.
He suggested to Salazar that
if they suspected there to be a
contractor working without a
permit, to call the city.
Juan Salazar spoke later,
saying that he would bring his
recommendations to Smith as
to how the city can fix the is-
sues with permits.
Next came discussion about
the city’s Christmas decora-
tions. It has been noted by
several in attendance at the
meeting that the decoration
that were put out were in
need of repair or replacing.
Attending the meeting were
the “Pink Ladies,” some-
times called “Sisters with a
Mission,”who had been invit-
ed to the meeting to witness
the council announce a proc-
lamation to declare March 23
and 24 “a weekend dedicated
to clean up Jacksboro in hon-
or of the Pink Ladies.”
The “Pink Lady” weekend
will give residents the oppor-
tunity to haul away unwanted
brush and other items to be
placed in dumpsters that will
be available for them to use.
Watch the Gazette and the
Herald for future information
on this event.
Pink Lady Vicki Tillei
pres i
in the decorations that had
lery (
essed her disappointment
been used.
She suggested to the council
re-work the decorations be-
that they allow the ladies to
hey «
trk tl
fore Christmas in 2013.
In a brief statement, Coun-
cilwoman Keri Lane ex-
pressed her concerns for the
decoration issue as well. “If
we (the council) went out and
spent money for decorations,
then we would face the po-
tential of upsetting the resi-
dents because we didn’t use
that money somewhere else.
“If people would like to see
the city buy new decorations,
please have them call the
city and put in their opinion.
Obviously, if enough people
state that they want us to do
so, then we can have more
flexibility on the issue,” Lane
said. The issue was left open.
After approving the closure
of East Archer Street and the
100 block of Church Street
for the vendor booths, Christ-
mas parade and Reindeer
games events, the meeting
was adjourned.

Over a period of thirty years,
The Marksmen have become
one of the top Bluegrass Gos-
pel Groups in the nation. For
many years, they have been a
dynamic force on the south-
ern gospel circuit.
Several years back, The
Marksmen began to tread
new ground on the bluegrass
circuit as well, but always
with their familiar brand of
music, with a gospel mes-
In :

Was a Farmer,” at the Inde-
pendent Country Awards.
Then in 1992, they received

Marksmen have had several

The Marksmen have also
been inducted into the Lone

The Marksmen look at these
awards as token of appre-
ciation from those who love
their music. Their greatest
achievements have been to
glorify Jesus Christ in song
and the honor of taking the
Gospel message to the world.
