— Palo Pinto County Chief Deputy Mike Sudderth and Capt. Walt Rucker presented three recently retired county jail employees with plaques last week, recognizing their years of service.
Recipients were: Roger Foreman, who retired more than a year ago after 15 years as a jailer; Sgt. Jo Nelle Hight, who worked at Palo Pinto County Jail for 16 years prior to her retirement in 2011 after she was struck by a vehicle as she walked to work; and Daniel Miguel Ortiz, who recently retired after a 21-year career as a jailer.
