There were no running vote totals Tuesday night. Complete returns were posted on the Jefferson County Clerk's website after 10:30 p.m.
As election night dragged on, there were no election returns emanating from the Jefferson County Clerk's office, and calls to County Clerk Wes Wagner went unanswered.

In a letter to the editor, District 3 Jefferson County Councilman Bob Boyer says Reuter has been instrumental in serving her constituents and changing the culture of county government.
At this time two years ago, the people of Jefferson County were about to decide who would represent them on the first ever Jefferson County Council. I and six others were honored with the privilege to serve our community on the new County Council. Once again, it is election time, and the people who reside in Council Districts 2, 4, and 6 will have to make a choice as to who will represent them. For the past 21 months, one council member has worked tirelessly to serve the people of her district. That representative is the first Council Chair, Renee Reuter. I can remember one of the first constituent requests that Renee and I received last year. It was a gentleman who lived in Ward 4 of Arnold, which is in Renee’s district. He had an issue …

What started as a place to show off Ball's collection of classic cars has developed into a destination for small banquets, birthday and anniversary parties, and even the occasional wedding reception. The problem is that the zoning regulations for Ball's business does not allow those uses, which Ball said he didn't realize until recently. In order to rectify the situation, Ball took the necessary steps to have his business rezoned, which would allow him …
