County Election Runoffs Slated For Commissioners, County-Wide Posts Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan to victory in the presidential primary. Easy victors in the Satur- day primary were U.S. Sen. Lloyd Bentsen, State Rep. Fred Head, District At- torney Bill Green, Sheriff J.W. Brownlow, Don Yar- brough in the race for Texas Supreme Court, and incum- bent Truman Roberts in the race for State Court of Criminal appeals. Generating more interest in the Malakoff area than the county-wide races was the battle for precinct 1 county commissioner, which led to a runoff between incumbent Leo Kinabrew and Jim Blakeney. Kinabrew led a field of five in the race. Kinabrew polled 1,106 to Blakeney's 929, but he failed to gain a majority of the votes. Other tallies included: A.G. Pirtle, 276; Bobble Bradley, 26; and Jo Ingrain, 191. Incumbent Billie Richard- son was well ahead of his nearest challenger in the fight for county tax asses- sor-collector, but he was unable to poll enough votes to avoid a runoff with Keith Hearn. Richardson polled 3,584 votes and Hearn had 2,064. Hearn narrowly elim- inated Helen L. Stephens who polled 1,955 votes. Richard A. Kidd had 728. Jane Holland Taylor and John Regester remain the contenders for county treasurer, eliminating a third candidate Juanita D. Matthews. The winner will fill the unexpired term of Maggie Nell Williford, who resigned. The voters gave Mrs. Taylor 3,849 to Reges- ter's 2,417. Mrs. Matthews TO THE PEOPLE OF HENDERSON COUNT Please let me take this opportunity, on behalf of myself, my family and the entire Sheriff's Department, to thank each and had 1,510. In the county Democratic chairman's race, L.T. {Terry) Spurlock had a scant 68-vote margin over Dan A. John- son, with 2,789 and 2,721 votes respectively. They eliminajd John W. Hays, who had 1,716 votes, to move into a runoff. Precinct 3 commissioner incumbent Larry Everett trailed challenger W.T. Featherston, 747 to 798, with W.M. Herrington run- ning a close third, with 621. Henderson County fol- lowed an apparent state- wide trend in placing Jerry Sadler and Jon Newton in the first and second posi- tions for state railroad corn- spot over Welby Parrish. Henderson County tally in the race showed Jones with 2,582; Hall with 1,465; George Preston, 1,465; Fred Hudson, 969; Welby Parish, 890; Sam Taylor, 249; John Wade, 226; James Allison, 144; Jess Nickerson, 86; and Kenneth Burkhalter, 50. A runoff developed for the unexpired term on the ap- peals court between Carl Dally and W.P. Phillips. In Henderson county, Phillips had 3,312; Dally, 2,259, and VoUers 986. Henderson County fol- lowed the state lead in re-nominating U.S. Sen. Lloyd Bentsen, In Hender- son, Bentsen had 4,827 votes missioner. In Henderson to Phil Gramm's 2,136.

Rep. Fred Head rode a better than 2 to 1 win in Henderson County to win re-election to the state repre- sentative's post he had held for 11 years. He won Hender- son County by 5,539 to 2,524, and Smith Cdunty by 1,673 to 678. Freestone county, home of challenger Joe Kirgan gave Kirgan a narrow 1,791 to 1,387 edge, in nearly-complete returns, but it wasn't near enough to overcome the votes from the other counties. Challenger Bill Green easily dumped incumbent Third District Attorney Richard Handorf. He led Henderson county by a 2V to 1 margin, 5,537 to 2,215, while also leading the two candidates' home county of Anderson by some 500 votes, and Houston County by 3 to 2. Incumbent Sheriff, J.W. Brownlow's fate was never in doubt from the first precinct reporting to the last. He received 5,067 votes to his nearest challenger, Ira Billings, 1,692 votes. R.W. {Pat} Glasgow placed third with 1,411, and Faulk Wills had 128. Don Yarbrough carried Henderson County as he did the state in winning a spot on the Texas Supreme Court. Henderson gave him 4,689 votes to 2,634 for Charles Barrow. Judge Truman Roberts took an easy win over Jerome Chamberlan for the state court of Criminal Ap- peals post, with Henderson going along, 4,589 to 2,166.
