By the way, President-Elect Trump won handily in Saline County, beating Clinton 58.5% to 33.5%.  Statewide, Trump easily won 60.3% to 33.9%.


  1. Love those Trump results. Heard Rush Limbaugh say today it's just a shame what brainwashing liberalism has done to 20- and 30-something aged men in America. He said it has de-masculinized them, neutered them. So true! Bet you know a few, especially in the public schools!

    1. Some illegals already leaving country as 1.4 million likely to be deported by early next year

  2. What are the results of the rest of the election like school and village board?

  3. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of the voters who took the time to write in their candidate's name for School Board in the recent election. The fact that 197 voters used the write in process for their choice is a clear reflection of the commitment our community has to continue the high quality leadership the Board has provided over the years. Dorchester is a strong and thriving community and we all realize that a quality education for our children is the best way to continue that growth.

    No matter how the election turns out, we all benefit from the process. You have all shown that folks who participate in this process are concerned as to how their elected officials do their jobs. I want to thank all the voters for their time and participation in this most basic privilege of our democracy. You have set an example for many to follow.
