Primary 2013: Clarification offered on local voting results

NEW CASTLE — Rosemary Henderson won a Republican nomination for a four-year term on New Castle City Council in Tuesday’s primary.

William Schafer won the Republican nomination for a two-year term on council.

Henderson received 356 votes for the four-year term, according to the Lawrence County Board of Elections. She was the lone Republican candidate seeking a four-year term.

Wednesday’s edition incorrectly stated she was the lone Republican candidate for the two-year term.

Schafer had 259 votes to win the two-year nomination. Henderson had 185 votes.

Wednesday’s edition incorrectly stated both ran for the four-year term.

City voters will elect two council candidates to four-year terms and one candidate for a two-year term in November.

In the Wilmington school board race, the four Republican candidates selected Tuesday are: Jennifer Hunt, Scott Frederick, Joe Kollar and Lynn L. Foltz.

Carrie Hahn did not have enough votes to be nominated as a Republican.

Wednesday’s edition indicated she was one of the four nominees and Kollar was not.

However, Hahn did receive enough votes from Democrats in Tuesday’s primary and will be on November’s ballot.

Penguins, in five games or fewer. Too much firepower for the Blue Jackets, especially if Evgeni Malkin is ready to go.
Penguins, in six or seven games. It’s a pretty even matchup on defense, but Pittsburgh will grind it out.
Blue Jackets, in five games or fewer. Sergei Bobrovsky in goal for the Blue Jackets spells trouble for the Pens.
Blue Jackets, in six or seven games. Bobrovsky gives Columbus the edge, but it won’t be easy.
