Runoff election to decide transit position

While State Rep. Warner McBride took the majority of Lafayette County’s votes in Tuesday’s special election, it wasn’t enough to push him into a runoff for the seat of Northern District Transportation Commissioner.

Of the 1,718 votes cast locally Tuesday, Warner earned 937 votes. However, when the votes were counted from all the other counties in the district, it was candidates John Caldwell of DeSoto County and Mike Tagert of Starkville who both won 21 percent of the total votes, pushing them into a runoff election on Feb. 1 (January 12, 2011, Page 1A)

      JACKSON (AP) — Mike Tagert and John Caldwell Sr. were headed to a runoff for northern district transportation commissioner.

        Few voters at polls

        Voters were trickling into Lafayette County’s 18 voting precincts this morning to cast their ballot for the candidate they think should fill the North Mississippi transportation commissioner seat that became vacant by the Nov. 1 death of Commissioner Bill Minor.

        Turnout was expected to be low today due to possible icy road conditions left over from Sunday’s winter storm that dumped 8 inches of snow in Lafayette County. (January 11, 2011, Page 1)

          Keep safe, warm in big chill

          With 8 inches of snow in Lafayette County, many children, and even adults, spent their day Monday playing in the snow, followed by getting warm by a fireplace or space heater.

          Fortunately, their memories will remain good ones.

          A National Fire Protection Association report shows 73 percent of home heating fire deaths can be attributed to space heaters and other alternate heating sources. (January 11, 2011, Page 1)
