Galena Park ISD Stadium, Friday, November 8, 2019 – The Galena Park Yellow Jackets ended their season with an easy win over the Houston Wisdom Generals 41 – 0. The Jackets showed improvement from the previous year winning more district games but not enough to qualify for the district playoff games.

Friday’s game was Parents Night that was never a real contest, from start to finish Coach Spiro Amarantos’ offensive and defensive team’s dominated the Generals.

Seniors having played together since their freshmen year became a close knit bunch, and found it to be emotional to part with their football relationships. The night’s joyous victory wasn’t enough to stop the tears from players, parents and friends that had gathered in a large crowd to say goodbye to the senior players.

New District Clerk Burgess collects $2 million of unpaid debts

Marilyn Burgess, Harris County District Clerk

Making Big Changes at the District Clerk’s Office…

By Allan Jamail

In the 2018 sweep by Democrats in Harris County, the office of County District Clerk brought in a new face. It can be said one of the county’s most important offices is that of District Clerk.

The District Clerk’s office records the actions and the judgments of the court; transmits the orders of the court to the authorities responsible for their execution; and assumes all other duties assigned by the presiding judge of a court. The District Clerk’s office “makes justice happen.” The District Clerk is elected by Harris County voters for a 4-year term.

A Texas district clerk is a “constitutional officer of county government” found in Article 5, Section 9 of the state’s constitution. The district clerk is the custodian of the “official record of the district courts” and must mark the exact date and time of receipt and issue all papers including subpoenas, citations, warrants, and summons.

Marilyn Burgess (D) defeated incumbent Chris Daniel (R) in the general election for Harris County District Clerk on November 6, 2018. She wasted no time after officially taking office by signing her first order as Harris County District Clerk at midnight, January 1, 2019 and has been working hard to serve the people ever since. Though she has been in office less than a year, her innovations are already making a difference.
