Brown leaving Coahoma, accepts Snyder ISD post

August 2, 2011

COAHOMA — Dr. Randy Brown, superintendent of Coahoma Independent School District the past three years, is resigning to accept a similar position in Snyder.

Snyder ISD trustees unanimously named Brown the “lone finalist” for their superintendent post during their Monday meeting. The school district must wait a state-mandated 21 days before making the hiring official. Brown replaces Mark Eads, who resigned in May to become superintendent at San Marcos ISD.

Brown's first official day on the job at Snyder will be Aug. 22.

Neugebauer votes against debt limit bill

August 2, 2011

WASHINGTON — Emergency legislation to allow the government to borrow more money headed toward passage in the Senate today just hours before the national debt bumps against its ceiling.

Expected approval sends the bill to President Barack Obama, averting a potentially disastrous, first-ever government default and making a down payment toward taming out-of-control budget deficits.

"Finally Washington is taking responsibility for spending money it doesn't have," Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., said at the start of debate.
