Post 141 Held a Memo-
rial Service at the LaFayette
Court House Monday Morn-
ing. Despite the light rain a
good crowd showed up to
pay their respects to local
veterans including: Todd
Rauch, Jeff Jones, Susan
Harmon, Paul Story, Cary
Baldwin and Randy Price.
Brother Yancey Sanders a
World War 2 prisoner of war
performed the rededication,
and the guest speaker was
Todd Rauch, a veteran who
was wounded in the Iraq war.
Commission will be Bobby
“Bo” Colley and Debra Riley.
The Chambers County
Probate Judge seat is also up
for grabs. Candidates seeking
to fi ll the Probate Judge seat
on the primary ballot will
be Cary Baldwin and Paul
Story for the Republican
ticket. Democratic candidates
include Brandy C. Easlick
and Susan K. Harmon.
Another County election to
watch in the primary will be
the seat for Chambers County
Coroner. Mike Cox and Jeff
Jones.
Various other elections
are on the ballot for the June
5th Primary that Chambers
County voters will have to
decide on next week. The
primary election is held by
political parties to select
each named party’s nomi-
nee for the general election.
According to the Alabama
Secretary of State’s offi ce in
the primary election, separate
ballots are printed, and voters
must choose between the
ballot with Democrats or
Republicans running against
members of the same party.
If there are more than three
candidates running for a
seat in the race and no one
receives a majority of the
votes in the primary a second
primary or runoff election
will occur between only
those two candidates with the
highest number of votes. The
winner of the second election
becomes the party nominee.
Polls open at 7:00 a.m. on
June 5th and are open until
7:00 p.m. that same day.
If for some races a second
primary election is needed
then that will be held on July
2, 2018.
Each Political Candidate
present had the opportunity
to speak and give thanks to
the veterans. Afterwards,
Legion Commander Curtis
“Rabbit” Adams reminded
everyone about the Veter-
ans Memorial Monument
being damaged by a car and
gave thanks to the fi nancial
support of fellow citizen
and local businesses which
allowed the Legion to repair
the Monument. A plaque
was presented bearing the
name of all who contributed
and will be displayed at the
legion hall.
