ANGLETON — For the last 10 years in December, Austin County Commissioner Mark Lamp and his wife, Wendy, have driven over 70 miles from their hometown of Bellville to the Brazoria County Courthouse.

They do it as a way to spend Christmas with their daughter Alyssa, who was 20 years old when she was killed by a drunk driver in the county, Lamp said.
