I voted

Voters in Teton County will have a host of races to decide when they go to the polls today – not the least of which is the much-discussed presidential race.  However, voters will also be asked to decide the fate of one of the state’s two senate seats and its lone house seat as well with the incumbents in both of those races seeing challenges.  Two seats are up for grabs on the Teton County Commission and are being sought by four candidates.  The race for Jackson Mayor is also a contested race and four candidates are seeking two vacancies on the town council.  Voters are also being asked to determine who will fill Wyoming house districts 16, 22 and 23 and Wyoming Senate District 16.  There is no shortage of choices for the Teton County School Board as seven are seeking the four available seats there, three are seeking the voters’ nod to fill the three slots on the hospital board and two are seeking the single at large seat available on the conservation district board while another is seeking the lone urban seat.  There are three SPET tax issues on the ballot including the purchase of land from the Forest Service on the north end of town, the construction of a pedestrian and bicycle path along Highway 22 and mitigation funds to correct environmental problems at the county’s old landfill site south of town.  Election returns may be heard on 96.9, KMTN beginning shortly after the polls close.

    I’m no tech genius, but I think the best way to keep your stuff safe from hackers is to just stay off the Internet and go outside. I might be a little behind on my Internet threats, but I thought I heard something last week about an Internet virus called the Heartbleed virus. I don’t […]
