Wet/dry election petition will not fly; some signers not registered voters here

MARTIN COUNTY - For the second time, an application to seek a wet/dry election in Martin County will have to be done again.

Some of the names on the petition are not registered voters, it was learned this week, which means the petition needed to ask Martin County commissioners to call an election is void and will have to be done again.

A previous petition was judged to be the wrong document by the Secretary of State’s office - so it was thrown out.

She seemed so nice over the telephone . . .

MARTIN COUNTY - She sounded so nice over the internet - and even nicer over the phone. Her husband had just died and she needed to sell his truck in order to pay for the funeral and medical expenses. She’d sell it at a reasonable price - actually cheap - because she needed the money. She even sent several pictures of the truck, which was in Kansas, but could be easily delivered to . . . well, right here in Martin County.

It explores the special relationship the cotton industry has with our neighbors to the south in Mexico and how the current administration appears to be jeopardizing what has been a good thing economically for Texas and all American cotton farmers.

There’s nothing more American — and Mexican — than a pair of jeans.
