New Fayette County Judge Joe Weber completed his first week in office on Tuesday. He took the oath of office last week on New Year’s Day.

“It was great, and the reason why is because of many great men and women in this courthouse,” Weber said. “They’re getting me on board and have explained many things to me.”

Weber presided over his first commissioners court meeting on Monday, Jan. 7. He began that meeting with some humor by asking the county’s legal staff to keep an eye over his shoulder.

“If I screw something up (…) and you’re going to laugh, kind of laugh to the side so I don’t see you,” he joked at the meeting. “Just make sure the emperor is fully dressed, OK?.”

Weber also presided over sessions of county court and juvenile for the first time this week.

Flatonia Police recovered numerous items of stolen property and a dead deer after stopping a man for a broken tail light Sunday night, Jan. 6.

According to a report from Flatonia Police Chief Perry Kram, the stop happened around 8:30 p.m. on South Faires Street. Officer Keith Llanes stopped the vehicle, a 2001 Dodge pickup driven by 28-year-old Wesley Rainosek of Shiner. Kram said Rainosek did not have a driver’s license, but he provided a license number.

When Llanes checked the number, dispatchers confirmed two felony warrants originating in Medina County for Possession of a Controlled Substance and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon. Police placed Rainosek in custody and searched his pickup. The search revealed a .308 caliber rifle, ammunition, numerous stolen or fraudulent credit cards and a social security card, drug paraphernalia, a counterfeit one hundred dollar bill, and a freshly-killed whitetail deer carcass.

Police called Texas Game Warden Calvin Harbaugh to investigate the deer carcass. A few hours later, Lavaca County Sheriff’s Office called and informed Flatonia Police that they believe the .308 rifle was taken in a burglary in Lavaca County.
