Liberty Jubilee: Liberty City Manager Gary Broz said the 29thAnnual Liberty Jubilee was a big success, despite a storm that moved through Friday evening damaging some of the vendor’s tents. He said once that storm passed, Texas country music singer and songwriter Cory Morrow drew a nice crowd for the street dance. Then, on Saturday, Mr. Broz said after a slow start the weather cooperated and lots of people showed up to enjoy Jubilee. At Saturday’s Hotdog Eating Contest, a Dayton ninth-grader dethroned the three-time champion by gobbling down 20 hotdogs and five crackers in the fastest time. The new champion is 14-year-old Alfredo Avilez of Dayton.

JP 6 Race: It appears the Liberty County Democrat Party is legally allowed to select another candidate for the Pct. 6 Justice of the Peace race. We reported the original Democrat candidate for that office – Monique McDuffie Brooks – was disqualified when she voted in the Republican primary. Liberty County Republican Chair Ken Coleman asked a GOP attorney if the state election code allows a replacement candidate for one who was disqualified by their own actions rather than circumstances beyond their control – for example, illness. The answer, according to the Republican Party of Texas, is “yes it does”. That legal opinion agrees with Liberty County Democrat Party Chair Nancy Archer’s interpretation that the county party executive has 70 days prior to the election to select a Democrat to run against Republican Ralph Fuller in the Nov. 4 General Election for Justice of the Peace Precinct 6.

Child Abuse: April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, and Bridgehaven Children’s Advocacy Center is working to get the word out that child abuse is an issue in Liberty and Chambers counties. Today, as part of those efforts, Bridgehaven staff will be putting out blue lights in both counties. In addition, there are two balloon releases planned this week. Tomorrow at 10:30 a.m., they will be at the Chambers County Courthouse. Then, on Thursday at 4 p.m., they will release balloons at Liberty City Hall. Bridgehaven will release 218 balloons to signify and remember each of the children they served last year.
