Meet the Erath County Sheriff candidates: Kent Howell

“Being elected sheriff is not about the title, the money nor the status some may think the position carries, but rather for the simple fact that I am fully committed to this community,” Howell said. “I consider the residents of Erath County my family and I want to serve and protect each and every one of them. I have dedicated my life to public service, working as a law enforcement officer in Erath County for almost 13 years, as well as serving on the Erath County Fire Department for 14 years as a volunteer.”

James Dearth- a Tarleton legend

James Dearth came to Tarleton in 1996 after leaving the University of Tulsa to marry his wife. In his time as a Texan he was able to snag 77 receptions for 992 yards and nine touchdowns, according to Tarleton Sports. Tarleton left the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) in 1994 to join the Lonestar Conference (LSC) in Division II of the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA). Until Dearth, Tarleton had yet to produce an NCAA All-American. Dearth was named to the NCAA Division II All-American team and received first team All-LSC South Division honors in both 1997 and 1998. In 1998, Dearth received the LSC Offensive Lineman of the Year award.
