County adds extra $5 fee to juvenile cases
By Barbara Gartman
Monitor Staff Writer

KAUFMAN–Kaufman County Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Mike Smith told commissioners truancies and other juvenile offenses were up and the case load presented a need for a case manager to handle them.
“Truancy has skyrocketed,” he said at a May 23 meeting of Commissioners’ Court.
He and other JPs have discussed the problem and propose a $5 fee as a solution to funding a case manager.
At a called meeting Tuesday, commissioners approved the fee, effective immediately for all four JP courts.
Each defendant convicted of fine-only misdemeanor offenses will be charged an additional court cost of $5.
In other business, commissioners:
• hired a consultant to seek proposals for county employee health insurance.
• approved selling Precinct 4 surplus road equipment to the city of Mabank.
• agreed to auction off surplus county equipment through Rene Bates Online Auctioneer Services.
• agreed on space for a farmer’s market on Saturdays and Sundays. The proposed market will be held in the Kaufman County parking lot, located along Monroe Street, between Mulberry and Grove streets.
The entity will be required to carry liability insurance.
• adopted a clean fleet vehicle policy.
• paid bills totaling $197,830.91.

ETMC offers online mammogram scheduling
Special to The Monitor
ATHENS–ETMC is the first hospital system in East Texas to offer complete, online mammogram scheduling, available on our website at www.etmc.org.
“Online registration for digital mammography at ETMC will add convenience for East Texas women,” according to Regina Davis, director of the breast care center.
“Women will be able to schedule their annual appointment at anytime on our secure website, by selecting the date, time and location,” she adds.
Patients will log on to www.etmc.org and click on the mammogram self-scheduling box and follow the instructions.
The system will ask the patient questions to make sure she is the right age and meets specified guidelines to receive a screening mammogram.
“Women should have a baseline mammogram at age 35 to 40 and an annual mammogram beginning at age 40,” Davis said.
The system has other benefits as well.
“We will also be able to generate e-mail reminders and provide additional services that will help East Texas women pursue healthy lifestyles through screening and early detection,” referral services director Susan Shockey said.
ETMC screens more than 10,000 women a year for breast cancer.
