A proposed new lake in Fannin County is still awaiting final approval from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. Before that can happen, those who would be directly affected by the proposed Lower Bois d’Arc Creek Reservoir will have the chance to present their case to the Texas Office of Administrative Hearings.
Texas Commission on Environmental Quality commissioners met on Sept. 24 in Austin and referred the cases of those parties who had proved to TCEQ that the new lake would impact them or their land to the Texas Office of Administrative Hearings.
The Fannin County Sheriff's Department is investigating a "suspicious" death that occurred in a rural area north of Bonham over the weekend.
Sherman-based KXII-TV reports that a woman died early Sunday morning near the intersection of FM 273 and FM 1396. The report quotes Fannin County Sheriff Donnie Foster as saying that a vehicle was involved in the incident. A man has been taken into custody in connection with the case, the report said. The intersection is about two miles north of Lake Bonham.
