MIDLAND - Big changes are in the works for Midland County officials. On Thursday, they're shutting the doors to the courthouse, putting an end to an 80-year chapter in West Texas history.
For the people who work inside the Midland County Courthouse walls, the new changes are offering chance to look back. For Judge John Hyde, this isn't just a workplace, it's where his family grew.
"I have good memories of bringing my daughters here when they were just babies," Hyde said. "Right down the hall in another courtroom we finalized the adoption of our younger daughter and our older daughter was with us, we have a lot of good memories here."
