Coming to justice, 23 years later

Anita Miller - Managing Editor

San Marcos resident Leighton Stallones walked in on weak knees and left with a pair of used handcuffs. What happened in between isn’t what you might imagine.

Twenty-three years after the brutal murder of his mother, Stallones confronted a battery of news media Aug. 24 in Houston at a press conference announcing that the suspect would finally stand trial.

Celebrating 96 years of women’s suffrage

Tara Pohlmeyer - Staff Reporter

The League of Women Voters of Hays County congregated at the Hays County Courthouse Aug. 25 to celebrate Women’s Equality Day a day early. 

In 1971, Congress designated Aug. 26 to commemorate the 1920 certification of the 19th amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote. It’s important to note that not all women were granted the right to vote in 1920, and many African American, Hispanic and other women had to wait years to be able to freely exercise their right to vote. 

Construction delays send students to local hotels

Ella Lofts, formerly Eight17 Lofts at 817 Chestnut St., has been under construction for a few years. The development switched hands after sitting idle in 2014, and has since leased residents for move in this August. 

The complex has yet to receive a certificate of occupancy, meaning tenants were unable to move in by their scheduled date of Aug. 19. 

“They’re not ready. They’re still under construction,” City Fire Marshal Ken Bell said. 

Candidates draw for ballot order

Laura Aebi - Staff Reporter

City council and mayoral candidates drew numbers on Friday to establish the positions of their names on the ballot. 

Candidates and their stand-ins gathered at city hall around noon to first simultaneously draw cards to establish drawing order, and then draw numbered balls in said order. 

Those numbered balls solidified the order in which their names were placed on the ballot. 

For the mayoral ballot placement, the order is as follows:

1 - Sam Brannon 

2 - Jacob Montoya 

3 - Cherif Gacis 

Changes to Voter ID law allows more options

Hays County Elections Administrator Joyce Cowan is reminding residents of Hays County that voters who cannot obtain one of the seven forms of approved photo ID now have additional options when voting in person. 

The change was ordered by a federal judge who found the state’s Voter ID law disenfranchised some voters.

“My office is working to make sure all the voters in Hays County are ready to cast a ballot,”  Cowan said. “These new options for voters who cannot obtain a photo ID are currently in place and will be used in the November election.”
