Burnet County constable honored

Marshall Jett, a member of Boy Scout Troop 284 in Marble Falls, unveils a monument honoring former Burnet County Precinct 4 Constable William ‘Oscar’ McCarty on April 13. Though it was part of Jett’s Eagle Scout project, the youth wanted to recognize the man who died in the line of duty on April 11, 1942, while responding to a disturbance at a Marble Falls theater. Jett’s father, Chris Jett, is the current Burnet County Precinct 4 constable. Staff photo by Daniel Clifton
