red River Demonstration

Clifton Brown with Life-Net shows demonstrated the Lucas 3 Chest Compression System at the Red River County Commissioners Court meeting Monday morning in the county annex. The commissioner bought the lifesaving machine for around $16,000 earlier this year. Commissioner David Hutdon, County Judge L.D. Williamson and Commissioner Jeff Moore are in the background.

CLARKSVILLE — Red River County is officially on record as opposed to the creation of Marvin Nichols Reservoir. The commission voted 4-1 in favor of a resolution opposing the proposed man-made lake at Monday’s meeting in the Red River County Annex, after hearing several speakers against the reservoir.

Cathy Marable, who said she loves Clarksville and the time she lived in the county, said she was there to speak about all the wrongs the reservoir would bring to the county.
