    Fast forward to Tuesday of this week. All the incumbents either won re-election or advanced to the general election. Thats right, all the incumbents.

    The closest race was the one that probably has the least impact on your taxes ... that of sheriff, where Johnny Smith beat Bobby McCallum by a narrow margin.

  • House destroyed by fire

    Hidden behind the blowing trees in a driving rain, this house at 20581 N.E. Highway 318 burned last Friday. "We're not sure how it started. When we arrived the flames were through the roof," said Williston Chief Lamar Stegall. "It was a new experience. I've never fought a fire before in 40 mph winds and rain blowing sideways." The Williston firefighters were assisted by units from Bronson and Morriston. Below, the overall scene near the intersection of 318 and U.S. 27.
