Jury Acquits Defendant On Drug Charge
Thursday, March 26, 2015
Herman R. Quezada of Muleshoe was acquitted of one drug charge by a Bailey County jury Thursday, but still has a remaining charge hanging over his head.

While the jury was unable to decide Quezada’s guilt on the possession of a small amount of cocaine that was reportedly found at his feet in the patrol car after he was arrested and transported to the Bailey County Law Enforcement Center on the evening of June 12, 2013, the eight woman and four man jury apparently decided to take the word of Quezada’s cousin — Jose Moses Quezada, also of Muleshoe, who testified that the paraphernalia, a small glass pipe and the small amount of methamphetamine it contained, was his.

In both indictments bringing Herman Quezada to trial, the punishment assessed upon conviction could have been 180 days to two years incarceration, along with a $10,000 fine.

However, according to adult probation officials, such state jail felonies currently receive mandatory probation.

According to Dist. Attorney Kathryn Gurley, Herman Quezada was offered a three-year deferred sentence and a $1,000 fine on the two charges which he faced.

Furry Rally Fun
Thursday, March 26, 2015
Sometimes the most obvious thing in a photograph isn’t the most unusual. For example, pictured above the Roadriders annual parade is pictured as it swings through circle drive at Park View Nursing Care Center, with one of the participants that appears better attired to ride an Indian™ motorcycle, rather than a Honda™. However, closer inspection to his right shows a mounted sidecar for his furry friend to join in his excursions.

Saturday’s event was the local motorcycle club’s 33rd annual rally, with fun, fashions and festivities for enthusiasts of all ages.

Commissioners’ Court Amends Employee Policy
Thursday, March 26, 2015
The Bailey County Commissioners’ Court approved changes to the county’s employee handbook during Monday’s regular meeting.

County Treasurer Shonda Black addressed the court about the proposed changes which are due in large part to the time her office spends gathering additional information about county employee time cards prior to issuing pay checks.

“”If the time card isn’t turned in, there will be no pay check,” Black said, noting that the time owed an employee would still be received, but it would be during the next pay period.

While county employees working in the courthouse have a time clock to punch in, she noted that it might be necessary for the individual precinct barns to use a computerized time clock program.
