A pregnant woman in the other vehicle was killed, though doctors were able to save her unborn son, and seven people were hospitalized after the accident the evening of Dec. 26 along U.S. 385 in Channing, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety report.  The cause of the wreck remains under investigation, said DPS Trooper Gabriel Medrano. The report didn't indicate why Sen. Suzanne Williams of Aurora, Colo.,  cated that "the child was either right on the roadway or just off to the shoulder of the roadway" after the wreck and was placed into a car seat.  Williams' attorney, David Lane, said Wednesday the lawmaker didn't remember moving her grandson into a child safety seat.  AUSTIN (AP)—The$26million renovation of the arson-damaged lexas Governor's Mansion has revealed an unexpected view of the world then and now.  Dealey Herndon, the project manager, says restoration officials made a surprising discovery about the tall windows at the front of the historic .structure, built in 1856.  The windows were built to lift about 18 inches into a pocket built in the mansion's exterior walls, apparently so people could walk out on to the porch, on both the first and second floors, the Austin American-Statesman reported for its Wednesday editions.  “It was a fun find,” said Herndon, who also was involved in the mansion's earlier restoration in the 1980s. “We didn't know they did that. I don't imagine they'd been opened in years."  No one has been charged over the June 2008 fire that damaged the unoccupied residence during renovations. Gov. Rick Perry and his wife continue living in a rental property.  The mansion is expected to reopen in 2012, officials said.  The exterior restoration will cost $4 million, and the roof should be in place by late April, said Herndon.  “Once the new roof is completed, we can start the interior restoration,” she said. Crews are prepping for construction of an addition, which is expected to cost $1.2 million or less, according to Herndon.

White Construction Co. of Austin is doing the exterior work. A contract has yet to be awarded for the interior restoration.  Security is tight.  Bidders and contractors are required to sign nondisclosure agreements. The lexas Department of Public Safety clears tiny workers before the crews are allowed to enter the mansion grounds.  “Everybody on site is screened by DPS,” said Herndon, recalling that the restoration of the Texas Capitol during the 1990s entailed no such restrictions. “We're living in a different world now.”  Marinda Mae Soell Lowrey  Marinda Mae Soell Ixiwrey, 57, of Brazoria, lexas, passed away Sunday, jail. 2, 2011.
