  • Deadline to file for candidacy is Tuesday

    Those who want to toss their hat into the political arena have less than a week to do so.

    The deadline to file for office is 4 p.m. Tuesday at Taylor County Clerk Mark Carney's office. The filing fee is $50.

    The 2010 Primary Election on May 18 will likely be the second largest election Taylor County voters could likely see, Carney said, because virtually every office is up for grabs.

    With that in mind, Carney is surprised that only 54 candidates have filed so far.

  • A few of my not so favorite things

    In my last column, I wrote about some of my favorite things. This week, I'll tell you a few of my not so favorite things.

    First on the list refers to a call I received recently from someone who said she reads my columns (thanks for that).

    She told me that some animals were being dropped off near the walking track behind Miller Park. She, like me, has a soft spot in her heart for innocent animals, and said she hated to see this.
