And more importantly, their actions earned the smile of a terminally ill child!” See more award pictures on page 4A.

Officers recognized for civic spirit

EUSTACE -The Eustace City Council approved spending $5,401 to renovate the municipal court entryway at a special meeting Nov. 21.
The improvements are being made to enhance security for the court, with funding coming from the security building fund.
City officials said the glass in the current doors is cracked in several places, and the entry is not considered secure enough for a municipal court. The entry is also not considered compliant with regulations concerning people with disabilities, they said.
In other action, council members:
• approved annual incentive payments to city employees based on performance.
• approved radio advertising of the annual Christmas on the Square event on Saturday, Dec. 14 at a cost of $1,500. The radio station will promote the event for a week on the air and do a live remote broadcast from the event.
• recognized law enforcement officers for their voluntary attendance at the recent Make a Wish event on the town square. That event drew more than 1,000 people to reveal a family Disney World trip wished by little Karter Whittenberg, grandson of Eustace Fire Chief Chris and Caren Anthony. He suffers from Nephrotic Syndrome, a treatable condition where the kidneys leak protein instead of keeping it in the blood stream.
