Board of Elections petitions to terminate Bishop

In a move to save Macon County taxpayers money, the local Board of Elections petitioned the state last week for the termination of Director Kim Bishop. While the investigation into the alleged embezzlement of more than $50,000 continues, members of the Board of Elections are turning to the state for help.

“The board took the action available to us by state statue and we expect a State Board of Elections decision within about three weeks, said board member Gary Dills. “I do not presume their decision nor the status of the on-going SBI investigation.”

Two careers that simultaneously allow every household in the country to know your name. Two careers that children grow up dreaming about.

Kevin Costner has not only built two careers that skyrocketed him to world fame, but he has done so the old fashioned way: with hard work, and a lot of balancing.
