I agree with Chief and Jimmy. I have been picked twice in 15 years of residing in Liberty County. Once while still on active duty, and once since retirement from service. I also think that government incompetency has its hand in it too. Whomever is in charge isn't auditing the rolls properly.
Funkentelecky, I'd say you are spot on.
It may not be incompetency,
It might be manipulation of our courts.
A very long time ago it was custom for the Clerk of Superior Court to announce jurors in the County newspaper.
I believe Oscar Flowers was Clerk in the early fifties and was followed by Robert Kitchings.
I think they both published jurors well in advance of court sessions.
It would be nice if the Courier would resume that practice.
I agree it is more important for the masses to know who will be serving on upcoming Grand Juries.
It also just might be interesting to know who is chosen frequently to serve on various trial juries.
If all jurors were known by the public I think it would make our courthouse activities a bit more transparent.
