Precinct 1, Place 1 Justice of the Peace Jo Anne Prado (D) is facing a challenger in her bid for a fourth term in office. Her opponent, Sylvia De Leon-Muzzy (R), currently works as a caseworker for Justice of the Peace courts.

“I saw the opportunity a justice has to have an impact on our children, our school and our citizens,” De Leon-Muzzy said.

Prado says her more than 30 years of experience in the judicial system and knowledge of court procedure make her the best candidate for the job.

Professor questions account of massive student walkout

Anita Miller - Managing Editor

A Texas State University Anthropology professor says he’s a “bit bewildered” by an online report of a massive walkout from his class on Tuesday.

The report, published on, alleged that white students exited the class after Dr. Jon McGee told the class that all human beings can trace their ancestry to Africa. It went on to say some students that stayed “reportedly called after them, “Black Lives Matter,” while others remaining “argued with each other.”

The oldest daughter of Mexican immigrants, Tiscareño-Sato challenged students to think what they imagined themselves to be doing 30 years from now, and then shared how she had escaped the restrictions of her upbringing to become an aviator/decorated military veteran, award-winning author, bilingual consultant, multicultural publisher and founder/CEO of a global group.

‘Cleanest two miles’ in Texas

Gary Job Corps has adopted two miles on State Highway 21 in front of the Gary Center, Quail Creek Country Club, San Marcos Airport and local residences.  

The original Adopt-a Highway program began right here in Texas in 1985.  Since then, it’s grown into a nationally and internationally recognized litter-prevention effort, saving taxpayers’ dollars and keeping our rights of way clean.
