Column - An election night surprise

Email News Alerts

The headline on today's front page, "Election yields some surprises," was all too true for me, personally.

After getting the final results from the friendly folks at the Douglas County Auditor's Office, I got back into the office at a little after 1 a.m. to write a final story on the vote totals.


I was in the middle of writing a sentence, when I suddenly didn't feel well - at all. And it wasn't because of the results.
