"Fund" Should Remain Secret, Says Sheriff

  The Smith County Sheriff is asking whether his department's "K-9 and Livestock Fund" is exempt from public disclosure. The Tyler Morning Telegraph has filed a request under the Texas Public Information Act for information about the fund. In a letter to the A.G.'s offce, J.B. Smith says he doesn't believe the account involves public funds as defined by state law. He says the fund, used to care for search-and-rescue dogs and horses, is not used as part of the department's official business. Smith also says he wants to keep the account secret because some contributors want to remain anonymous.
