    Judicial races decided

    Judge Edwin H. Roberts didn’t spend this morning lounging around enjoying the afterglow of winning the election last night.

    He was up, bright and early, picking up his campaign signs.

    Roberts won Tuesday’s election and holds onto his chancery court judge seat for another four years. He took 75 percent of the votes in Lafayette County and 69 percent of the votes for all of District 18, which covers five counties. His opponent, Helen Kennedy Robinson, had 31 percent of the votes.

    Also retaining his place on the bench was Circuit Court Judge Robert W. Elliott, who won with 57 percent of the vote. Chickasaw attorney John Gregory snagged the seat occupied by retiring Judge Henry Lackey of Calhoun County. He beat out attorneys Tom Levidiotis and Dave Rozier, both of Oxford, with 63 percent of the votes. Court of Appeals Judge Donna Barnes of Tupelo defeated challenger, attorney Kelly Mims, with 53 percent of the vote. (November 3, 2010, Page 1)
