Perham-Dent third attempt at school levy fails; NY Mills levy passes
The third time apparently wasn't a charm for the Perham-Dent Public School District's attempt at a levy referendum. On Nov. 2, Perham-Dent Public School District voters did not approve a $595 per student levy, according to unofficial results. A difference of 525 votes separated...

Road issue tops Edna Twsp. agenda
March 9 is township election day, and most area town halls will host small, low-key neighborhood gatherings-except perhaps Edna Township. Two of the three voting members of Edna Township board have resigned-in part over a road project gone awry. Resigning at the end of January...

Most township annual meetings, elections March 9
Township voters throughout the area will be going to the polls March 9. There is at least two notable exceptions, however. The Perham Town Board decided last year to move the annual township elections to coincide with the November general elections. Rush Lake will also not have...

Special election needed to gauge levy support
The levy referendum went down on a technicality. What do we know? We know about 6,000 voters participated in the Nov. 4 election. We know just under 2,000 voted in favor of the levy. We don't know, however, how many 'no' votes were actually cast. According to rules printed on the...

Vote 'freedom first' this election
