What's going on around the South Plains...

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Former Hockley County Chief Deputy Gordon Bohannon will spend 10 years in prison, without parole for his involvement in a methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy.

Bohannon has been in custody since July of 2009. He had faced a maximum sentence of life in prison.

The government says one more defendant awaits sentencing.


The 2010 Census is underway and the Census Road Tour invites you out to "take 10."

The tour will be at South Plains Mall this morning to promote the importance of being counted. The event begins at 11 a.m., and will focus on increasing Lubbock's census mail back rate - which was 49 percent a few days ago, one point lower than the national average. The van visiting the Hub City is one of 13 vehicles traveling the country to raise awareness for the census.


Early voting starts Monday for the Republican runoff election.

Incumbent Delwin Jones and Charles Perry are both seeking the District 83 House Representative seat. Mark Griffin and John Frullo are running for the District 84 seat.

Election day is April 13th.
