The â€śPeople's Courtâ€ť is no more.
Texas' Supreme Court abolished Small Claims Court effective Aug. 31 and restructured portions of the Texas Government Code, Texas Rules of Civil Procedure and Texas Property Code to accommodate new rules for Justice Court cases which became effective Sept. 1.
In the past, while Small Claims Court and Justice Civil Court were held in the same courtroom with the same justice of the peace presiding, they were in fact very different courts with different rules.
Ever since the horrible events of Sept. 11, 2001, Howard County residents have answered the call of duty â€”and some have even paid â€śthe last full measure of devotionâ€ť â€” for their country.
As they have for the past seven years, area residents will gather to remember Howard County servicemen who have fallen during conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The â€śMemorial at the Plaza,â€ť set for 5 p.m. Sept. 11 at Spring Town Plaza (formerly Big Spring Mall), will honor not only local servicemen, but all those lost in the terror attacks of 12 years ago, organizers said.
