Commission omits JP candidate's name
The Garland County Election Commission said Tom Wisdom's name was inadvertently left off a list of candidates published in Friday's edition. Wisdom is running unopposed for District 9 justice of the peace in the March 5 Democratic primary.
Also, the list of candidates the commission provided to the newspaper named Stacey Horton as the unopposed Democrat for District 8 JP. The commission said Stacey Herron is the actual name of the candidate.
Threat of rain cancels district's luminary plan
The Quapaw/Prospect Historic District's annual luminary which had been scheduled for tonight has been canceled due to concerns about the weather, Diane Bischof, a spokesman for the organization, told The Sentinel-Record Friday.
"We are sorry to report, but we are canceling the luminaries because of the impending rainfall," she said, "We will try again next year." Bischof said Wednesday they weren't planning to schedule a rain date if they had to cancel.
