EMSWreck: The Texas Department of Public Safety reports around 2:30 Tuesday afternoon, an ambulance, responding to an emergency in north Liberty County, was traveling eastbound with emergency lights flashing on FM 787. Reports say a pick up truck operated by 79-year-old Jimmy Ford of Cleveland moved to the right. The ambulance driver said he thought the truck was making room for the emergency vehicle to pass. For unknown reasons, the pick up driver allegedly turned directly in front of the oncoming ambulance. That impact sent the truck into a roadside ditch and turned the ambulance on its side. Two medics, Jesse McGraw, 39 and Pepper Miller, 55, both of Liberty County were taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital with serious but not life threatening injuries. Mr. Ford and the student rider, 24-year-old Jeremy Fernandez, were taken to Cleveland Regional Medical Center with minor injuries. Both the medics have since been released from the hospital. The accident remains under investigation by the Texas DPS.


No Demo: We reported several months ago, Democrat Candidate for Justice of the Peace Precinct #6, Monique McDuffie Brooks, was disqualified as a candidate when she voted in the May Republican Primary. While state law would allow the local Democrat party to name a replacement candidate, Party Chair Nancy Archer confirmed she has not been able to find a willing democrat to run for the office. Mrs. Archer said the deadline to appoint a replacement will shortly run out. That means Republican Incumbent Ralph Fuller will not have an opponent in November.
