Smith County has released an informational video so voters can easily obtain information on the Road Bond Election set for November 7, 2017. “We are committed to go above and beyond in this process to make sure the public has full, accurate and timely information about the upcoming bond election,” Smith County Judge Nathaniel Moran said. “We want them to make an informed decision, whether for or against, when they vote.” Help Smith County spread the word about the upcoming election by sharing this video: The 3-minute-and-48-second video discusses Smith County roads, the Road and Bridge Capital Improvement Project, information about the $39.5 million bond election called for November 7, and the financial impact it could have on voters, if approved. The money received from the bonds would be used to pay for major county road and bridge projects over three years – Phase I of the six-year road plan. “Ultimately, this decision is up to the voters. Our job as a Commissioners Court is simply to make sure the voters have all of the information,” Commissioner Jeff Warr said. “This video helps us get that information out to the public in a concise video platform that can easily be shared electronically.” The video can be found on the county’s website, along with other information about the Road and Bridge Strategic Planning Project, at, as well as and Early Voting will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 23 through October 27; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. October 30 through November 1; and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. November 2-3.

Smith County donated surplus computer equipment this week to Mustard Seed Ministries to be given to local school children. Dr. Karen Jones, founder and president of Mustard Seed Ministries, along with three technicians, picked up surplus technology equipment Tuesday, October 3, 2017, collected by the Smith County Information Technology Department. Smith County Commissioners voted to donate surplus computer equipment to the local ministry that supplies them to school children. Donated items included 63 computers, 64 monitors, two scanners and seven printers. Dr. Jones said she has received several thousand machines from Smith County over the years. “We appreciate the partnership that we have with Mustard Seed Ministries and their commitment in serving the schools and children in Smith County through the repurposing of our donated technology,” Smith County IT Director Don Bell said. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with this outstanding organization.” For years, Smith County has donated outdated and broken computer equipment, including monitors, desktops and printers, to Mustard Seed Ministries. The nonprofit organization dismantles and reassembles the equipment and donates them to school children who do not have computers. The nonprofit has given more than 11,000 computers to local schools since 2001, Dr. Jones has said. Mustard Seed supplies schools in Tyler, Whitehouse and Mineola. In 2001, a small group formed to teach a one-time computer class to 15 students. A year later, they received their first donation of salvaged computers. Now, with a team of 20 volunteers, Mustard Seed Ministries has given away about 11,000 computers. They also teach weekly beginner and intermediate computer classes, a one-time Windows 10 class, popular with business owners; and a gadget class, geared toward teaching people how to use their new electronic gadgets. Dr. Jones said they partner with Workforce Solutions East Texas and see a lot of jobseekers in their beginner classes. Mustard Seed Ministries, at 1420 N. Church Ave., is a nonprofit organization and a working extension ministry of the United Methodist Church. For more information, visit

The project contractor will have warning and detour signs in place to alert the public. Weather permitting, it is anticipated that the work will take approximately six to eight hours for the pipe replacement. The work is part of the project to widen and overlay Big Eddy Road, from Farm-to-Market Road 2661 to Texas Highway 155, west of Noonday. Work on the roadway improvements will begin in October. If the work scheduled for Wednesday is delayed due to weather, notification of the revised closure date will be issued.

Juanita Brooks – who served as a Smith County Election Day Judge for 15 years -- has passed away. “She was my anchor at our main early voting location,” Smith County Elections Administrator Karen Nelson said of Mrs. Brooks. “She was such a bright light in this world and a person who was kind and genuine with everyone. Mrs. Brooks was loved and adored by many. She told me many times that elections were her passion. She will forever be missed.” Mrs. Brooks started working elections in 2002, shortly after she retired from being an elementary teacher. “I didn’t want to become a person doing nothing,” she said during an interview in February 2016. “So I decided to lend my talents in another direction.” Always a teacher, Mrs. Brooks wanted to educate people and to help them understand how important it is to exercise their right to vote. She educated herself on the entire election process before she started teaching others. Mrs. Brooks recalled all of the changes she had seen during her years of working elections – from hand counting ballots one-by-one to everything being computerized. For years, she worked at T.J. Austin Elementary School on Election Day, before moving to the Main Voting Location at the Smith County R.B. Hubbard Facility, “The Hub.” The Lead Early Voting Clerk is responsible for making sure the polling location is a positive, friendly atmosphere that makes the voting process easy and enjoyable for voters. Mrs. Brooks put in much more time working for the Elections Office than just on election days. She started working about two months before the election to assemble all materials that would be needed by every worker at all five polling locations during Early Voting and 34 locations on Election Day. On Election Day, Mrs. Brooks served as Election Judge. She averaged a 13-hour work day during Early Voting and on Election Day. “It’s mentally challenging and stimulating,” she said of what she liked about working elections. She also enjoyed hearing all of the voters’ expressions and views about voting and the electoral process. “Some take it seriously and some think it is fun …,” she said during the 2016 interview. Several times throughout the years, Mrs. Brooks guided older adults to cast their first ballots. She said they always thanked her profusely and sometimes had tears in their eyes during the experience. “It’s exhilarating to help someone vote for the first time,” she said. “We encourage them to come back and vote again.” Mrs. Brooks also taught adult English as a Second Language classes, spending her time between that and elections. During the offseason, she worked with people from her church to educate people on the importance of registering to vote and to get them excited about voting. She said she wanted voting to be carried down to their children and grandchildren. “By all means, exercise your right to vote,” Mrs. Brooks said. “If you don’t exercise your right to vote, don’t complain when the decisions are made.”

Smith County Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace Mitch Shamburger was recognized Tuesday for 35 years of service to the county. Judge Shamburger is serving his sixth term as Justice of the Peace. He left his nursing career to serve Smith County in 1982. “Much has changed since I quit nursing and started judging,” he said. “I have always been a public servant at heart. I do what I can to make this world a better place. For me that begins at home and in the community.” Smith County Administrator Leonardo Brown said Judge Shamburger was being recognized Tuesday for his efforts as a public servant to make this world a better place. “I have enjoyed working with you and all of the other Commissioners Courts over the years,” Judge Shamburger said. He thanked his staff, and said his job has been an enjoyable, but sometimes difficult, journey. Judge Shamburger is a life-long resident of Precinct 4. He served as a paratrooper in the United States Army, and is a graduate of Tyler Junior College and The University of Texas at Tyler. He and his wife of 46 years, Fae Shamburger, have three children. Judge Shamburger has served on the Winona ISD School Board, is past president of the Winona Area Chamber of Commerce, and is active in his church. He serves as chairman of the Smith County Bail Bond Board and serves as the City of Whitehouse’s Municipal Court Judge. He has written books and is a musician. “The mission of the Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace Office is to administer justice in a way that will benefit everyone,” he said. “I have been blessed with a good staff and working relations with the other fine Justice Court Judges in Smith County.” When asked about retirement Shamburger smiles, “Well, I did 20 years as a Democrat so I hope to do 20 as a Republican and then I may run as an independent!”

Four Smith County firefighters paid tribute to victims of September 11, 2001, recently by participating in the Dallas 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb. The annual event is a tribute to first responders who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. It was held at the Renaissance Tower in Dallas on September 9, 2017. Every year, there are several thousand people that gather in downtown Dallas to be a part of the incredibly symbolic and intensely physical tradition of stepping up to honor the fallen. On Tuesday, September 26, 2017, Smith County Fire Marshal Connie McCoy-Wasson recognized the men for their efforts during Commissioners Court. Those recognized were: Smith County Deputy Fire Marshal Eric Lowry, and Smith County Emergency Services District No. 2 Firefighters Raymond Murrillo, Ryan Cobb and David Gerald. “This year we had four Smith County personnel that participated in the Dallas Stair Climb, and completed the 110 floors,” she said. “Needless to say, we are very proud of their accomplishments, and at this time would like to recognize them for their dedication in remembering all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, 2001.” Participants in the climb are active duty firefighters, law enforcement and emergency medical services personnel. Each first responder wears the name and picture of a first responder that was killed on 9/11. They climb in their full duty gear. The 110-floor climb is equivalent to climbing to the top of the nearly 1,400-foot tall Twin Towers that collapsed. Murrillo said he has participated in the event for the past three years. It took them one hour and 10 minutes to make the climb while wearing 70 pounds of gear, he said. “It is a pretty humbling experience to honor the people who ran into the buildings and tried to save everyone they could,” Murrillo said. During the climb, “Taps” is played, an alarm goes off and then silence. “It’s a chilling experience,” he said. Smith County Fire Marshal's Office Smith County ESD2

Connecting Communities: City of Whitehouse Texas Highlighted in Commissioners Court City Manager Aaron Smith is seeing a lot of activity and progress within the City of Whitehouse. During Smith County Commissioners Court on Tuesday, September 26, 2017, Smith gave a presentation as part of the “Connecting Communities” initiative. Smith reported that new batting cages and a play area are being planned for the city’s sports complex; a new operator has taken over the former YMCA facility to provide similar services with a savings to taxpayers; the city has a paid, full-time fire department; traffic counts are up; 346 permits for new construction were filed last year and there are six new additions or apartments being constructed right now. With a population of 8,300 residents, Smith said they could reach the 10,000 mark by the next U.S. Census. “There is a lot of activity, a lot of progress, and a lot of good people working together … to try and improve the quality of life and make folks’ lives better,” Smith said. Commissioner Cary Nix said he appreciated all of the work Smith and other City of Whitehouse officials are doing for their community. Smith thanked the commissioners for being good partners with the City of Whitehouse. He also thanked Commissioner Nix for reaching out to him when he first started working for the city a year ago. “We always achieve the best by working together,” Smith said. Smith has been the city manager of Whitehouse since May 2016. Born in Dallas, he was raised in Kaufman and graduated from Robert E. Lee High School. He earned a bachelor’s degree in history and political science and a master’s degree of public administration from Texas Tech University, and decided he wanted to work in government. After college, he and his wife owned a Chem-Dry franchise for four years, until he became the assistant city manager in Alliance, Nebraska, in 2009. In 2011, he became city manager of Tulia, Texas; and then became city manager of Ogallala, Nebraska, in 2013. “I absolutely loved Nebraska,” he said, adding that the state has the best hunting and fishing. But when he and his wife had a daughter, they began talking about moving closer to her grandparents in Texas. Smith was hired as the City Manager of Whitehouse last year. “It’s nice to be back to a place you’re more comfortable with,” Smith said, adding that he spent many summers on Lake Tyler during high school. “It’s been outstanding working for Whitehouse,” he added. Smith said it is nice to be involved with a city council whose members are all on the same page – which is to move the city of Whitehouse in the right direction. “Our goal is to make Whitehouse a benchmark community,” he said. “That is possible when the council is all on the same page, wanting to see Whitehouse do well.” Smith County Judge Nathaniel Moran said he grew up in Whitehouse and has seen the city “come a long way. There has been a lot of growth.” Through the “Connecting Communities” initiative, the 11 cities within Smith County will be periodically highlighted during Commissioners Court. Municipalities within Smith County include Tyler, Lindale, Whitehouse, Arp, Troup, Bullard, Winona, New Chapel Hill, Noonday, Overton and Hideaway. City leaders will be invited to Commissioners Court to be recognized and give presentations about their city, as well as provide information about the state of each city and future plans. City leaders from Noonday, Arp, Bullard and Hideaway have previously presented to the Commissioners Court as part of the initiative.
