ROSS FILES APPEAL - Former Precinct 4 County Commissioner Terry Ross isn't giving up after being removed from office March 19. He appealed the decision to the Second Court of Appeals in Fort Worth and filed the paperwork yesterday in the 271st District Court in Decatur. Ross was removed from office March 19 when District Judge Roger Towery issued a summary judgment in the civil suit regarding the commissioner's removal. The judgment was issued at the request of County Attorney James Stainton. Ross' appeal will be heard by a three-judge panel, and Stainton said it could be the end of summer before it's resolved.
