I hope there is no true primary votes lost in the move.

Weather is fine here in JC. I cannot imagine why there was a power outage, unless the city did not pay their bill.

I know. It's interesting to listen to the radio this morning.

Having been here over 20 years, I cannot remember when there has ever been a "power outage" that wasn't explained right away.

We have those new high end power lines and new transformers that were supposed to survive anything that hard Kansas weather can throw at us.

Heat, cold, wind, rain.

How unusual is it to have not one but THREE that just happen to coincide with the vote tabulation.

I wunder...

I wonder why the power was out in our house when we woke up! Was it a trickle down effect?

We heard a transformer crashing this morning. We called Westar and the automated service said they were "analyzing the situation". I believe that if we called the customer service they would have told us the same thing.

No explanation for the power being out for that long.

the people who worked in the munciple building are very good at what they do.

No way. That would NEVER happen in Geary/JC.

We have the most honest and above board govenment around. Yep. Our folks have NEVER had any run-ins with the law.

Good old Barnes and Wunder. They led the way in how we should TRUST our local officials. And our city fathers, God bless 'em all, they are all honest and true. Good to their mothers. Men of virtue.

Now that the odd power outage was explained (and it hasn't been) and the fact that we are all certain that the tabulations were not affected by the REPEATED brown outs (ok) and there was of course NO WAY to tamper with anything at all while the machines were lugged to another site.(mmmm hmmm).

Nope, I'll just adjust my telescope here and forget about the debts and tax increases and empty lots and criminals running the city and bribes and the corruption and the idiots that want more and more money from the empty pot and all that.

God bless our town. Mayberry USA!

I saw some black helicopters about the time the power went out. Or maybe dragonflies.

Yes!
I think it was a conspiracy to hi Jack the election just like Bush did to Gore, only diffrent.
They turned of the power an lights and stole the machines for an hour and changed the votes.
They hurried and put the machines back before anyone noticed.
It worked.
A very stealth plan.
A very sneaky sneaky plan.

I do not think that primaries are a time to sneak a plan out like that. But why, Westar Energy, was the electricity out on a clear sky? Why did it trickle down? Meaning from the municiple building at the time the DU reported at about 12 PM all the way to our house in the morning? Peculiar to me why that happened... If someone, preferrably Westar or JC could give me an answer on that, appreciated. Maybe the votes all changed on the sales tax increase. Maybe all the yes votes did not make the capita. I voted but for those of you that didn't vote or voted against, that is something to think about. Maybe now you should be more concerned about why our sales tax, versus personal property tax, is increasing.

I also respect Watching's comment, on how this city is so trustworthy in our government. But I still watch the Andy Griffeth show.:)

Who would stand to benefit most from the power going out?

The #1 question that was on everyones mind. Personal property or sales tax.

I am saying we have not had a "mishap" with the conducter outside our house since the grave icestorm a few years ago.

Maybe instead of the sales tax increase, the majority voted on personal proerty tax.

Just asking Westar to comment. I haven't heard back anything from Westar as to why the transformer went out on THAT particular morning when there was no weather. Other than they are analyzing.
