The Brackett News, Thursday, January 22, 2009.

"The Kinney County Sheriff's Department confiscated more than 1,000 pounds of marijuana in a ten day period beginning January 10.

"Kinney County Sheriff LK Buddy Burgess says drug smugglers believe they can use the county's back roads as a way to get their shipments to the larger cities, but are surprised when they are met by his deputies and other [law] enforcement agencies.

"Burgess has pursued and received hundreds of thousands of dollars in grant money over the last several years, to aid the department in [its] own war on drugs."
