The candidate with fewer votes cannot

candidate then has until December 7th
to make that request.

To do so, he must file a petition
with the Circuit Court of the City of

By the way.. a recount is just
that.. a re-counting of votes.

make a difference in Iraq.

VO-NAT According to our News 7 Survey


USA poll, 47 percent of those asked
think his resignation won't make a
difference in the war in Iraq.

27 percent think it'll mean more

success, while 21 percent think it'll
mean less success.

But do viewers think it was the
right thing to do?

Apparently so.

Two thirds of those polled say it
was correct, while less than a third
think it was wrong.

in Maryland...part of the three-week
shooting spree that terrorized
Virginia, Washington and Maryland in

Although this latest sentence was

it is highly unlikely that the

to 1 to deny Gilbert Maxwell a
conditional use permit for his one acre
lot despite the planning commission's
recommendation.

A town ordinance created in the
19-80's was one of the main reasons it
didn't pass even though the planning
commission recommended amending the
ordinance.

Maxwell said he was surprised by
the vote and that young people lost big
