Ruling Says "K9 Fund" Public Record

  Details on the Smith County Sheriff's "K9 and Livestock" fund and it's donors are public and must be released. That's according to an opinion issued by the Texas Attorney General's Office. Sheriff J.B. Smith had said he didn't believe the account involved public funds and asked for a ruling. The A.G. disagreed with Smith's contention that search and rescue are not official duties, and says it's irrelevant if the money comes from private donations.
