Election day Tuesday voters decide federal, state and local offices
Posted November 3, 2014 by kgasradio |   

Texas2008photo-id-infoTexas voters will be required to present a photo identification, such as a driver’s license when voting Tuesday on Election Day.
There’s one contested race involving Rusk County elected officials: Precinct 5 Justice of the Peace Joe Sorrells takes on Rand Cates. Polls will be open from 7 am to 7 pm. Ballots will carry a few local races and several statewide contests, including those for governor and lieutenant governor.
KGAS News has obtained sample ballots for each precinct in Panola County to advise voters of what’s on their ballot.
Each ballot has federal, and state offices, but the local constable and justice of the peace races vary.
There’s the U.S. Senator’s election, featuring John Cornyn, David Almeel, Rebecca Paddock and Emily Sanchez; the U.S. Representative District 1 race with Louie Gohmert against Shirley McKellar; the Governor’s race featuring Greg Abbott, Windy Davis, Kathie Glass and Brandon Parmer.
The candidates for lieutenant Governor are Dan Patrick, Leticia Van De Putte, Robert Butler, and Chandrakantha Courtney. In the Attorney General’s race, it’s Ken Paxton, Sam Houston, Jamie Balagia and Jamar Osborne. Glenn Hegar, Mike Collier, Ben Sanders and Deb Shafto are running for Comptroller of Public Accounts.
In the race for Commissioner of the General Land Office, it’s George P. Bush running against John Cook, Justin Knight and Valerie Alessi. Commissioner of Agriculture candidates are Sid Miller, Jim Hogan, David Palmquist, and Kenneth Kendrick.
Candidates in the race for Railroad Commissioner are Ryan Sitton, Steve Brown, Mark Miller and Martina Salinas.
The local races vary somewhat. For example, on the Precinct 1 ballot, voters will choose David Gray and Bryan Murff. Precinct 2 has John Gradberg and Lora Taylor. Precinct 3 lists Lora Taylor, and Precinct 4 has Dale LGrone, David Gray and Bryan Murff.
All ballots also have one constitutional amendment, Proposition One, which allows the transfer of state funds to be used for completion of transportation construction, maintenance, and rehabilitation projects, but doesn’t include toll road.

Motion filed to dismiss murder charges against Center woman
Posted October 22, 2014 by kgasradio |   

By Elaine Etheridge

A motion has been filed to dismiss murder charges against a Center woman accused of stabbing a man to death. The motion cites “gross prosecutorial misconduct” in the case against Rebecca Gail Fountain.  Fountain’s attorney, Robert A. Goodwin filed the motion in the Shelby County District Clerk’s office.

“Originally, an attorney named Lynda K. Russell was appointed to represent Ms. Fountain on this murder case. At some time later in the case, the district attorney then, Kenneth Florence, actually the district attorney of Shelby County, filed a motion to remove Lynda K. Russell from the case, saying that at the time of the indictment and at the time this case was worked up she was in fact still the official elected district attorney of Shelby County and not him. And therefore, it would be inappropriate for her n his opinion to continue to represent Ms. Fountain because it gave the appearance if not the reality that the district attorney’s office was both prosecuting and defending this murder case,” Goodwin told KGAS.

Goodwin says he most concerned that Russell resigned her job as district attorney and that a new Shelby County D-A wasn’t appointed for eight months. During that time, Goodwin says the cases that were heard and disposed of may have been done so illegally.

Fountain is charged with the March 15th, 2012 stabbing death of Mark Alan Ray, of Joaquin.
