First Day Filing for Franklin County Offices

Today is the first day of filing for the primary and general election and County Clerk Debbie Door will once again use the random drawing process. First used in 1997, random drawing eliminates the need for candidates to camp out all night to be the first on the ballot. This only applies to the first day. Candidates are placed on the ballot according to the number they draw. Filing opened at 8:00 this morning and here is who filed so far.
John Griesheimer and Jerald Breihan from New Haven for Presiding Commissioner, Dave Tobben for District 5 Circuit Court, Jenny Metcalf Recorder of Deeds, Debbie Door for County Clerk, Tammy Vemmer Auditor, Bill D. Miller Circuit Clerk, Linda Emmons Collector, and Bob Parks for Prosecuting Attorney.
There are also some state and federal seats up for election including District 26 State Senator, 3rd District U.S. Representative and State Representatives for the 109th, 110th, 61st and 119 districts. The State Auditor position will also be on the ballot.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

1 week 4 days ago

On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
