Justice of the Peace Barbara Howell announced Friday morning she is seeking her tenth term on the Saline County Quorum Court.

Howell was honored in 2012 at Lake Norrell with the first Lifetime Achievement Award for her many years of volunteerism. She was also honored as one of Saline County’s Extraordinary People at a banquet by the Saline Courier in 2012.
