Major highway proposals to be discussed at public meeting

STANTON – A public meeting to discuss Interstate 20 projects in Stanton is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Oct. 30 at Stanton High School.

John Speed, the district engineer for the Odessa District of the Texas Department of Transportation, had the best explanation for some of the projects and proposals being offered for public comment.

“After the bridge at the west end of Stanton got knocked around again, it was our belief that it was the right time to consider several changes in the Stanton corridor.

“We got a lemon when that bridge was hit again and this might be the right time to consider making some lemonade and getting some things done with both safety and the future transportation needs in mind,” he said.

Younger Burkhart won’t play Friday, withdraws from school

STANTON - Calling it a “family decision my wife and I had to make”, Stanton Athletic Director and Coach Jerry Burkhart said Thursday afternoon his son, Landon, will not be the quarterback Friday night when Stanton plays Abernathy.

The senior Burkhart said Landon will not be at the game.

The first-year Stanton coach said the “situation has nothing to do with the school, but it is a safety issue that I just can’t go into with any detail. We - and wife and I - decided this was best for him and that’s all I can say for now.”

Landon Burkhart, a sophomore, has received statewide attention for his efforts as the Buffalo quarterback, including being named the Class AAA Player of the Week in the Ford Built Tough series.

Proposal would send used nuke waste through Stanton on Union Pacific rails

STANTON - Opponents of a plan to ship used radioactive nuclear waste by rail through Martin County and Stanton did not stop here during a tour of Texas last week, but the company that wants to ship the waste from 70 locations nationwide has called this week to schedule a hearing with the Stanton City Council in November.

That will be three weeks after the deadline for comment on the proposed transportation as set aside by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

The comment period could be extended. No one in the Martin County Courthouse has been approached on the subject  neither those proposing the shipment nor the growing list of groups in opposition.
