Far beyond the traditional keyboard and computer monitor, computer upgrades have been made at the Thayer County Courthouse. The brains behind the changes are credited to Information Technology specialist Ray Wright. He has another project hes working on.

I am hopeful this project will be beneficial to the citizens of Thayer County. We are also working on a new website for the county with a better layout and design for today's modern phones as well as easier navigation around the site. This new website is being designed with touch-screens in mind, Wright told the Hebron-Thayer County Edition of the Fairbury Journal-News.

Wright has been the Technology Adviser and Computer Support Specialist at the Thayer County Courthouse in Hebron for 2 years, and has lived in Deshler for five years.
