Wreck Victim Identified: The name of the 35-year-old Dayton woman killed in a one-vehicle wreck Monday morning has been identified as Blanca Olivia Torres. According to DPS troopers, the woman was traveling eastbound on C.R. 605 when she disregarded a stop sign, crossed C.R. 611 and crashed into a ditch. Troopers say fog was likely a factor in that accident.


Voting Location Change: The main Liberty County early voting location for future elections has been moved from the courthouse to the new community building on San Jacinto at Sam Houston Street in Liberty. During their regular meeting Tuesday, Liberty County commissioners unanimously approved that change at the request of County Clerk Paulette Williams. She said the community building offers several advantages, including parking, the convenience of voting on the ground floor and elimination of overcrowding.


JP Pct. 6 Race: Some questions have arisen over Liberty County Democrats’ plan to select another candidate for Pct. 6 justice of the peace to run in the November 4 General Election. Democrat Party Chair Nancy Archer has said her party has until 70 days before that election to pick someone to replace Monique McDuffie Brooks who was disqualified after she voted in the Republican Primary.  Now, Liberty County Republican Chair Ken Coleman and JP Pct. 6 Republican candidate Ralph Fuller have raised the question whether the state election code allows a replacement to be selected when a candidate in question takes an action that disqualified them. Mr. Coleman said he is contacting the Texas Secretary of State’s Office for confirmation that election law will, or will not, allow a replacement candidate under these circumstances.
