Superintendent Dan Swartos said Tuesday night that the school received the 60 percent needed to pass the bond vote for a new middle and high school. Officials needed 444 votes for the bond issue to pass, which Swartos said was received. Official totals were not available because election officials were still hand-counting votes when this edition went to press.

DesaRae Gravatt was the unofficial winner Tuesday of the Charles Mix County Democratic sheriff's primary race. She received 324 votes, two more votes than her opponent, Gene Niehus. Assuming her slim margin holds up, Gravatt will face current Sheriff Randy Thaler in the general election in November. "It was a very, very close race," Gravatt said.
