Week in Review: Obama wins re-election; Franklin copes with shooting

This weekend feature offers a recap of the week’s top local stories:


A light snow fell over most of the region Saturday night, offering a possible prelude to a stronger storm forecast to hit the area later this week.

In sports: Morris earned its second straight Section Four Class D girls soccer championship Saturday at the Wright National Soccer Campus.


All campaign trails lead to Election Day — and with a highly competitive presidential race at the top of the ballot, the voter turnout today should be heavy across the region, local political observers predicted Monday.

In sports: Once again, the National Baseball Hall of Fame is changing the date for its annual Hall of Fame Classic — a seven-inning exhibition game featuring former major league players.

Last year, the change was minor. The game that had fallen on Father’s day for its for three editions — 2009-2011 — was moved to the day before Father’s Day.

Now, it’s moving back three weeks to Memorial Day weekend.


Barack Obama will be president of the United States for four more years, and after all was said and done, after billions of dollars, millions of words and many months of campaigning, the big winner in the 2012 elections was ... the status quo.

Going into Tuesday’s plebiscite, Obama was president, the Republican Party controlled the House of Representatives, and the Democratic Party held sway in the Senate.

When we woke up this morning, Obama has been re-elected, the GOP still has a majority in the House, and the Democrats remain in charge of the Senate.

In sports: Walton’s Katrina Kilmer made eight saves to help the Red team to a 3-1 victory over the White in the Section Four Field Hockey Senior Classic on Monday at Sidney.

Marathon’s Shelby Underwood scored three goals — two for the Red team and one for the White.
