families are hunting on taxpayerowned land that is closed to use by the general public according to a published report The Daily Sentinel reported today that the legality of the land use has been questioned The newspaper reported that several hundred acres of Angelina County land purchased by Nacogdoches County and set aside as mitigated wetland is being used as a private hunting lease for county employees with taxpayer money being used to clear roads and do work around cabins on the property The county paid in1994 for 852 acres just across the Angelina River bridge on Highway 7 west as part of the effort to build Lake Naconiche The county purchased the land because environmental laws require that any wetlands that are destroyed be replaced The land was to replace the wetlands that would be destroyed if Lake Naconiche is built Bill takes aim at conviction reversals on technicalities AUSTIN AP Texas appeals courts shouldnt use harmless technical errors as the basis for throwing
