My how times have changed!
I was second district magistrate in the late 1950s until 1965.
I was appointed by then Gov. Bert Combs to fill out the term vacated by Edgar Sowder and won a full term in 1960 with Paul J. Jones as my opposition.
I served under two county judges – Horace Ransdell and Kepple Roland.
The fiscal court at that time had jurisdiction over the courthouse, jail, roads and the hospital along with the commodity program and the food distribution program.
The magistrates were paid $15 a month and no benefits.
