    Say what you will, but given the fact that only two names were on the ballot, a 27 percent turnout for the recent election here probably wasn't all that awful. There have been elections with many more candidates that didn't draw a turnout much larger than 27 percent.
    Those turnout numbers, though, also underscore the sheer stupidity of not having unopposed candidates on the ballot — unless, of course, one is concerned only with saving money.

    Written in 1957, Ayn Rand's novel ATLAS SHRUGGED was a sensation. To this day the book continues to sell copies around the world and the late Rand has a group of followers to this day.
    So it would seem that this book would be easy to get made, right? Unfortunately, no, and the reasons why are as interesting as the book. Why would such a popular novel written so long ago take so long to be made? The producer of this film hints that it might possibly involve the politics of the film.

    It got exciting around here when all three schools found themselves in their own sectional finals and the pride in Adams County could be seen at all three game locations thanks to the great amount of fans who attended the games, particularly the Braves fans who ventured all the way out to Western to witness Bellmont clinch it’s second sectional championship in the school’s existance.

    Scott Miller says there are no significant bullying problems at Bellmont Middle School, and a new program introduced at the school is likely to help continue on the same course.
    "No, not at all," the BMS principal says when asked if the anti-bullying program used there was due to a problem. "We got this grant three or four years ago (the same grant funds the school resource officer) from the government and it required us to set up the Olweus program.

    So once in a while you have to sit back and pop in a movie you think is safe for the kids ... when suddenly you find yourself laughing and enjoying the movie more than they are. They're at that age when it's just not cool to laugh at something your parents like as well so they stifle their guffaws as much as possible while you smile and laugh out loud.
    Too bad because they miss out on some fun movies that way. Movies like ZOOKEEPER.

    Before I go too far into the world of sports, I’d like to give a shout out to the man who made me a cartoon, Derek Miller, who worked tirelessly on the sweet new header for this column. He went out of his way to do that for me and I thought it was note-worthy to name drop for him here in my space. Stay tuned for the column next week, “Halloween edition.”
