If only ...

As part of his bond requirements, the mayor of the small town of Bartlett (south of Temple and east of Georgetown, in case you're wondering) won't be allowed inside the city limits until his case is resolved. Authorities accused Mayor Bobby Hill of writing thousands of dollars in checks to the city for cash and utility bills, then ordering the city secretary not to deposit the checks.

What's this got to do with South Texas?

If judges issued similar orders in Rio Grande Valley corruption cases, half the city halls would be deserted. Then again, maybe that's not such a bad thing.
