Supervisors canvass municipal elections

CLINTON — Election results for the Clinton and DeWitt races are now official.

Clinton County supervisors John Staszewski and Brian Schmidt met Thursday with County Auditor Eric Van Lancker and Deputy Auditor of Elections Natalie Ehm to review the election results in both municipalities. After less than 30 minutes, Van Lancker agreed there were no changes from the unofficial numbers reported Tuesday.

Tom Determann and Grant Wilke were elected as At-Large councilmen. Two tax issues were voted down by the voters.

Julie Allesee beat Maggie Klaes in Ward 1, with 448 votes to 100. Lynn McGraw ran unopposed in Ward 2. Ed O’Neill won in Ward 3, with 596 votes for him and 384 for opponent Bev Hermann.

The two open DeWitt seats were unopposed. Dawn Marcus was elected for council At-Large and Steve Hasenmiller was elected in Ward 2.

The board will canvas for the remaining municipalities at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday. Election results that will be considered include Goose Lake, where Janeen Jensen and Brandon Eberhart are tied with five votes each for the third open council At-Large seat. Janice L. Bormann and Ken Schoon were elected to the other two seats with 16 and 18 votes.

  • Smartphone kill switches are coming

    Smartphones need kill switches. It's a relatively easy solution to the pricey (and irritating) problem of smartphone theft. But who would have thought that the big carriers would team up with Apple, Google, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung and lots of other manufacturers to voluntarily begin adding the technology by July 2015? The cooperative spirit! It makes so much sense!

  • John Hood A year after 'chaos'

    It happened two hours after John Hood finished his run. Like many, he thought the loud boom was just the sound of cannons going off, something that shook the ground. It was odd, but Hood — a 1989 Clinton High School graduate — tried to make it logical, associating the noise with another good happening at the Boston Marathon.

  • Why do wolves howl?

    Of all the myths that dog the wolf, none is more widely accepted than the idea that wolves howl at the moon. Images of wolves with their heads upturned, singing at the night sky, are as unquestioned as a goldfish's three-second memory or a dog's color-blindness (both also myths).

  • Eyewitness testimony no longer a gold standard

    The American legal system offers few moments as dramatic as an eyewitness to a crime pointing his finger across a crowded courtroom at a defendant.

    The problem is that decades of studies show eyewitness testimony is only right about half the time — a reality that has prompted a small vanguard of police chiefs, courts and lawmakers to toughen laws governing the handling of eyewitnesses and their accounts of crimes.
