The two sides came to an agreement. Just don't think Pet. I Commissioner Joe Hall is ready to stop fighting for the churches of Henderson County. Hall was indicted in April because he used Henderson County personnel to pre- pare and pave parking lots at Landmark Baptist Church and Antioch Baptist Church. The indictments included two counts of perjury, and one count of abuse of official capacity. The alleged perjury was related to Hall's testimony about the length of time spent on the parking lot projects. From the very beginning, Hall admitted to working on the church properties. He said the Precinct 1 employees didn't have anything else they could do at the time, and the churches provided the materials. He doesn't think what he did is illegal, and says Henderson County commission- ers have been doing it for years. He also said he checked with the Texas Attorney General's Office, and has an AG's opinion that supports his position. On the other side, every adult in America has heard the phrase "separation of church and state." Henderson County District Attorney Donna Bennett has told media representatives on more than one occasion that the rest of the commission- ers understood the law, and that Hall was mistaken. Anyone hoping for a resolution in court See HALL, Page 3 ~i: :ii:,ii:::,i?::i ::i:/ !:i[ :
