Local Officer Receives Statewide Honor

  As a gunman opened fire outside the Smith County Courthouse in February, he rushed out to try and stop him from taking more lives. On Friday, Deputy Sherman Dollison was honored for his selfless act. He received "The Texas Lawman Of The Year Award" from the Sheriff's Association of Texas. Deputy Dollison was shot 4 times as he tried to stop David Arroyo last February. He says the support from east texans and his co-workers helped his remarkable recovery. The deputy says he has another surgery at the end of the month and then he could be back to work in November.
