J.W.’s News Update: Tuesday July 26, 2011

Good Tuesday, Here are some stories making headlines today:


The Texarkana City Council worked past midnight last night to accept a mutually negotiated contract where city manager Dr. Larry Sullivan will end his term on or before August 2012 when a new manager will be in place. Sullivans old contract was to end in 2013 and Councilmember Bill Miller says they have saved the city between $250 and $500,000 thousand dollars.

 Miller says he expects the search process for a new city manager to begin after the upcoming bbudget process is complete and will allow time for a proper search and orderly transition to a new manager.


Not all legal issues have been solved but a major chunk of them were with an agreement between SWEPCO and the Hempstead Hunting Club concerning a coal fired power plant in Southwest Arkansas. 

Swepco has announced a settlement in which they agree not to build any more generation units at the plant which is located near Fulton in Hempstead County just east of Texarkana. The company also agreed to no propse anymore col fired plants within 30 miles of that site and no future transmission lines will cross sensitive environmental sites. The Sierra Club and the National Audubon Society are continuing to fight the plant before a federal appeals cour and regulators.


In Sports:

The Texas Rangers have increased their lead in the American League West to 4 games over the LA Angels after the Rangers pounded the Minnesota Twins 20-6 last night in Arlington.
