Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
Two local races were decided in the Texas primary runoff Tuesday night. In the Grayson County runoff for precinct 3 commissioner, Jackie Crisp defeated Kelly Bickerstaff, 917 votes to 642 votes. There is no democrat challenger in the race, so Crisp will take over district 3 next year.
In Cooke County's precinct 1, Gary Hollowell defeated Phil Young with 70% of the vote. Holloway garnered 579 votes to Young's 245.
