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.
(Austin-AP) -- Governor Rick Perry has named Amos Mazzant of
Sherman to the Fifth District Court of Appeals. The state appeals court covers Collin, Dallas, Grayson, Hunt, Kaufman, Rockwall and Van Zandt counties.
Mazzant is an attorney with Wolfe, Tidwell and McCoy. He graduated magna cum laude from University of Pittsburgh and received a law degree from Baylor.
Mazzant was appointed to a term that will run until the next general election, when he can opt to run for a full term.
Mazzant ran for the Republican nomination for 15th District Judge in Grayson County in the March primary, but lost by less than 100 votes.
