WILLIAM J. GIBBS JR./Reprints at wilsoncountynews.com
Ruby Nell Rosene, who resides on C.R. 144 southwest of Floresville, pulls railroad spikes and sharp stones from a bag as she addresses the Wilson County Commissioners Court Nov. 13. Rosene — saying she found these items on her road — used the items to illustrate her point about the road’s condition, which she said has been responsible for damaging countless tires.

Wilson County employees will now receive their health coverage through Humana.
The Wilson County Commissioners approved a new plan for county employees Nov. 13 during a regular meeting. The new plan will save the county more than $30 per employee, per month, equaling a savings of $145,000 per year on health insurance, the commissioners heard. The previous plan cost the county more than $1 million per year.
Previously, the county paid $727.58 per employee, per month. Under the new plan, the cost will be $691.28. The employee deductible also decreased from $1,500 per employee to $1,000 per employee.
Commissioners also approved the results of the Nov. 5 election after a canvass of the votes. See related story on page 1A, or see http://www.wilsoncountynews.com/article.php?id=54951.
In other business, the commissioners heard from two citizens regarding maintenance of roads in the county.
Rachel Schabell discussed a speeding problem on C.R. 101, and Ruby Rosene presented the problem of rocks puncturing tires on C.R. 144.

•Approved a request to set up a Christmas tree on the courthouse lawn and decorate the courthouse with lights.
•Discussed the County Information Resources Agency Services agreement. This was tabled, pending further changes.
