SALT committee runs TRIAD for Milam seniors

Ted Hubert Ted Hubert Mi lam County TRIAD works for the elderly. The SALT (Seniors And Lawmen Together) council is responsible for running the organization. Both the council meetings and the general membership meetings had been set in January.

Now, that Milam County recognizes October as “Crime Prevention Month”, it seems logical to set the membership meeting in October.

Three programs were presented since MCT’s proclamation was adopted in 2011.

Pat Foster, of Citizens National Bank in Cameron, focused on preventing identity theft among senior citizens and others. The following year, Chief Randy Dixon, Cameron’s Chief of Police, spoke on the simple ways to protect lives and property.

This year, Chief Dixon brought the program to Rockdale’s Rising Star Baptist Church.

Rising Star Baptist Church is a beautiful facility with a large parking area and the attitude of the church is to reach out to the community with activities in the community of Rockdale.

The SA LT Council usually meets the first Thursday.

Sheriff David Greene, appoints three members to serve on the SALT Council.

The county’s five chiefs of police Thomas Harris (Rockdale), Dixon (Cameron), Martin Jackson, Chief Owen, and the chief in Buckholts are responsible for selecting one each.

The Milam County Fire Chiefs Association, Chief Horelica appoints one, Milam County Retired Teachers, President Jamie Larson appoints one and Bryon Sedlacek of Milam County EMS appoints one.

Four sub-chapter leaders have volunteered, Rosetta Wesley, Claude Lagrone, Carolyn Cooper, and Renee Mueck.

There are positions open. Those of you living in Cameron, Buckholts, and Milano are solicited. You could contact Chief Dixon, if you live in Cameron, Chief Owen, if you live in Milano or the City of Buckholts if you reside there.

The SALT Council meets the first Thursday of each month. No meeting is scheduled for the rest of 2013. Next meeting in Jan. 9.

The Milam County TRIAD agreement signed on April 4, 2002, is on display at the Museum in Cameron.
