      Commissioner's past prompts street renaming

      One Jefferson County commissioner is looking to get rid of a reminder of the county's criminal past.

      A car dealership is moving onto Mary Buckelew Parkway in Mount Olive. Commissioner Joe Knight says he sees it as an opportunity to rename the road. It was named after former Commissioner Buckelew before she pleaded guilty to accepting bribes.
