Slow it on down.
05/30/2020

Slow it on down.

Recently, the speed limit on a section of Burma/Wake Village Road was lowered to 30 MPH thus making the entire stretch of roadway from the traffic circle all the way to West 7th a 30 MPH zone. The reduction in speed was due to an increase in pedestrian traffic and vehicle crashes along this route. The signs have already been changed. Drive safely!

COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) UPDATE FROM JOINT OPERATIONS CENTER 3-24-20 10:00 a.m.
• At the time of this release, Bowie County has one confirmed case of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Cass County has one confirmed case. We’d like to remind everyone that because Texarkana is the healthcare hub for a larger region, our hospitals will likely treat patients from several counties. We’ve received direction from state and federal health authorities that the patients should be counted in their county of origin.

• A rumor has been circulating that there is a positive case of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) at the Bowie County Jail. This rumor is FALSE.

• Please note, if you test positive for COVID-19 (Coronavirus) or have symptoms that indicate you may have the virus, you should not use public transportation and avoid all interaction with the public and other people, including family members. If you have to call 9-1-1, please alert the call-taker of your positive test results or coronavirus-like symptoms.

• We are urging residents to stay home unless it is absolutely necessary to get out. In order to get ahead of the spread of COVID-19 in our community, please stay at home and avoid travelling about. Please avoid any meetings or gatherings of 10 or more people, including staff meetings, and social settings. Do not get groups of children or neighbors together for back yard parties, sleepovers or any other reason that isn’t necessary. This time should not be treated as a vacation. Birthday parties should be rescheduled, baseball practice postponed, and you should limit social interactions to as few immediate family members as possible. If everyone cooperates, this will be a temporary situation.

• At this time, it is not recommended to seek out testing for the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) unless an individual cannot manage their symptoms at home with over-the-counter medications. Dr. Matt Young, Local Health Authority, advises individuals who may be feeling ill to treat symptoms with acetaminophen, and avoid nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen. Stay at home until your symptoms are not manageable.

• As a reminder, the EOC is collecting data regarding patients who have been tested, and persons under investigations. We are asking local healthcare facilities to call in and notify EOC personnel of each potential case at (903) 255-5562 or (903) 831-1939.

• Please help us spread the word that there have been telephone scammers preying on the elderly during this pandemic. As a reminder, do not give your personal information out over the phone for any reason.

• We know during this time there is a lot of uncertainty and fear. It can be especially hard for those residents who are experiencing an interruption at their job, or who are dependent on social services for their day-to-day lives. If you or someone you know is feeling anxious or depressed during this time, please seek help. You can call the Disaster Distress Helpline at 1-800-985-5990.

• Several local grocery stores and retail establishments have instituted policies to assist senior citizens with shopping and access to groceries they may need in a safe environment. Visit www.coronatxk.org for a list of these stores and their provisions.

• Please support our local restaurants for carry-out. Most, if not all, of our financial institutions now have their lobbies closed. Most have extended their drive-thru hours. Check their local websites and pages for their update hours.

• Please support our voluntary curfew for minors which is 7:00 p.m. – 7:00 a.m.

• Both Arkansas and Texas have laws in place regarding price gouging. It is prohibited for any prices to exceed 10% of pre-disaster prices. If you notice price gouging occurring at any local establishments, please contact your respective attorney general offices.

• As a reminder, a list of closures and cancellations, the latest information and updates, and daily updates can all be found at www.coronatxk.org. The local hotline telephone number is (903) 255-5560.

SLOW DOWN OR MOVE OVER
Texas law states that a driver must vacate the lane closest to certain stopped vehicles or slow down 20 mph below the speed limit. These vehicles include emergency vehicles, TXDOT, tow trucks, and utility service vehicles with their lights activated. Violations range from fines to misdemeanors resulting in jail time. Let’s make sure everyone gets home safely.

The Wake Village Police Department and Municipal Court will be sponsoring an amnesty period from May 6 through May 10, 2019. If you received a “ticket” in Wake Village and have not paid it, you most likely have a warrant for your arrest. During the amnesty period, you can arrange to take care of your warrant without being arrested AND your warrant fee will be waived, costing you less money. However, sometime just after May 10th, we will be having a warrant roundup! Wake Village Officers will be visiting homes and places of business to serve these warrants issued by the court. It’s much cheaper, less embarrassing and there is no chance of losing a job if you just come in and take care of this generous offer rather than going to jail.
For further information on how to take care of your warrant, please call 903-838-0515 and ask for the court clerk.

We had a little fire in The Village today...thanks to WVFD and Texarkana Texas Fire Department for responding and quickly extinguishing the blaze. While I was out there, I noticed a lot of curious folks driving and parking close to the fire trucks. Did you know this is against the law?

(a) An operator, unless on official business, may not follow closer than 500 feet a fire apparatus responding to a fire alarm or drive into or park the vehicle in the block where the fire apparatus has stopped to answer a fire alarm.
(b) An operator may not:
(1) follow closer than 500 feet an ambulance that is flashing red lights unless the operator is on official business; or
(2) drive or park the vehicle where an ambulance has been summoned for an emergency call in a manner intended to interfere with the arrival or departure of the ambulance.
This allows these firefighters and medics to their job without interference. Thanks and please remember to steer clear of all emergency workers when they are working!

Was everyone ok at that fire today in Elaine?
Our family would like to Express our eternal gratitude to our WVFD. Yesterday they responded to the death of my mother in law in which our daughter walked in and found her. Chief Bruce Dinsmore and the on duty responded along with Wake Village Police Department, BCSO & LifeNet. After she was taken away Chief Dinsmore and the crew cleaned up the room and made the bed. Not only does this show Professionalism of our department but the caring for our citizens and for this we will be forever grateful.
Redwater VFD is having a fundraiser tomorrow at wake village chicken express from 6 to 8. Y'all come get some chicken and make sure you tell them you want to support us. Drive thru or dine in.
