For the record, Safety Tag is a very difficult sport to photograph.
  • Front.lift
    MORENCI student Dalton McCowan puts everything into a dead lift attempt Saturday morning during the Wyseguy Push/Pull event. Lifters helped raise more than $1,600 for the family of the late Devin Wyse, a former Morenci power-lifter who graduated last year. Commemorative T-shirts are still available by contacting teacher Dan Hoffman.
  • Front.library.books
    MACK DICKSON takes a book off the “blind date” cart at the Fayette library. Patrons can choose a book without knowing what’s inside other than a general category. The books are among those designated for removal so patrons can consider them gifts. In Morenci, new books and staff favorites were chosen from the stacks and must be returned. Patrons get a piece of chocolate, too, to take on their date, but no clue about their “date.” One reader said she really enjoyed her book for a few pages, but then lost interest—so typical for a blind date.

2008.10.29 Bob Walton: write-in candidate

Written by David Green.

My name is Robert Walton and I am running as a write-in Republican candidate for Seneca Township treasurer.

To inform all voters, I request you read the process below.

My name will not be printed on the ballot. On the ballot you must write Robert Walton in the blank space under my opponent, Marie Meincke’s name, for treasurer. Then completely fill in the oval next to where you printed Robert Walton. It is important to follow these directions carefully or your vote will not count.

I have lived at my Yankee Road address since 1983. I retired from Metamora Elevator as office/accounting clerk. I am a 1963 graduate of Morenci High School and have an accounting degree from Jackson Business University. I have served as treasurer for a number of organizations. I have served on the Seneca Township Board of Review for 10 years, deputy treasurer for one year and on the Zoning Board for 1-1/2 years.

As treasurer I will maintain a positive relationship with the township board. I will maintain an accurate financial record of the township books and since I am retired I will be able to have flexible hours.

I believe voters should be informed about the candidates, including write-ins. I believe a vote for me is the right vote for Seneca Township treasurer.

Exercise your right to vote.

– Robert Walton

Yankee Road, Morenci
