The Zak Zone

November 10, 2011

Last week, I wrote about the competitive nature of athletes coming together and celebrating the opportunity to play again against an old rival.

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the game, but from what I heard, I missed a good, competitive game.

I was also told that the game got a bit chippy at times, but when the final horn rang, the teams came together in the ultimate show of respect: The mid-field handshake.

Incumbents remain safe

November 9, 2011

BROOKVILLE — County voters remained loyal to their mostly-Republican row officers Tuesday, while they also supported Democratic Judge John H. Foradora for another 10-year term.

Tuesday’s turnout, however, was slim, with only 7,988 registered voters —29 percent of the county’s 27,949 registered voters — heading to the polls on a day that saw unseasonably warm temperatures.

With 6,538 votes (84 percent), Foradora was retained as Common Pleas Court judge for another 10 years in Tuesday’s general election. There were 1,220 voters (16 percent) against the ballot measure.
