Review The Proposed
News Segment 1
Early voting has ended and Walton Supervisor of Elections Bobby Beasley
says 10086 or 26% of the registered voters did so early. As of Monday
morning they had already canvassed 478 absentee votes, but Beasley says
there is still a lot to do. Walton has 38519 registered voters. Beasley
notes Pt. Washington had a real heavy early voting turnout with 2690
registered in the precinct and 1059 early voted. Debbie Wilcox-Morris says
In Holmes County, the they ended with 2391 registered voters early voting.
Holmes has 11560 registered voters as of the book closing.
The polls are open 7am to 7pm Tuesday. There are national, state and local
candidates to decide as well as constitutional amendments and judge
retention. Beasley says they are expecting a total turnout of 75% to 80%,
depending on the weather.
Beasley says his office is advising the voters to acquire the sample ballot
and bring it in. He says you can premark the sample ballot. Study the
candidates and issues. They want you to use the sample ballot as a guide to
help speed up the process and keep lines down. This due to the length of
the ballot, two pages front and back. Beasley says voters also need to
bring in a signature ID. This can be a driverís license, state ID,
Passport, Military ID, some credit cards with a picture and signature or
any other document with a picture and signature. Even if you do not have
these, you can still vote with a provisional ballot.
Beasley says there are plenty of ballots and they are ready for 100%
turnout. The phone lines have been tested and ready for the election. This
means the results should come in quick.
News Segment 2
The annual Veteranís Day ceremony will take place on November 11th at
11:11am at the Magnolia Cemetery Veteranís Memorial. Local veteranís
groups will participate.
The city and the groups have been working together to hold the annual
event, but with Veteranís Day falling on a Sunday, this year there was some
disagreement. The event organizers wanted to hold the ceremony later in the
day to allow for church attendance. The veterans came to the council
meeting and said they want to stay with the tradition of 11:11 am, feeling
that people could decide to go to the event or go to church or churches
could change their service. The veterans said it was only one day every few
years and the vets should be honored by holding to the tradition.
Veteranís Day was made a National Holiday, but unlike other federal
holidays, this one has a set day, the 11th of November. The time is not
set, but traditionally is eleven minutes after the eleventh hour on the
eleventh day of the eleventh month. The time comes from the signing of the
document that ended WWI. The document was actually signed in the early
morning, but did not take effect until 6 hours later. The 11:11 am is the
time the ceremony takes place at Arlington.
the veterans also asked the Council to consider changing the event from the
cemetery to another location. They said the cemetery is more appropriate
for Memorial Day when the fallen Veterans are honored. Veteranís day is for
all veterans, those serving, those who have gone on and those who are still

Lacross Jr. is charged with burglary of an occupied residence and theft.

in the refrigerator, the nail polish was on the coffee table, and the car
keys were on the key rack hanging on the wall before Lacross broke in.
