No matter how you voted, it’s morning in America.

A peaceful mood prevailed Tuesday night between candidates, friends, family and neighbors while the votes were being counted at the courthouse, a testament to the spirit of Tyler County.

Tabulation went without a hitch — much praise should go to Tyler County Clerk Teresea Hamilton and those who counted the votes and worked the polls.

Worth noting too, not every courthouse offers a smorgasbord of treats to feed those waiting for the results. It’s become clich that journalists dine(?) on pizza and warm soda pop while they wait for the latest numbers in newsrooms across the country. While those poor souls were eating lukewarm pizza, the press gallery along with everyone else at the Tyler County Courthouse were enjoying homemade cookies, healthy snacks, corn chips, chili and more, much more. Much thanks.

In other news, Sistersville Elementary School will be sponsoring a Veterans’ Breakfast for all veterans between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. Friday at the school.

Paden City Police and the City Council ask residents to register their all-terrain vehicles with the department. Police Chief Bob Postlethwait said of the 70 registrations on file, only about dozen people have registered their all-terrain vehicles. There is no cost to register. Police will issues citations starting Jan. 1 to folks piloting their all-terrain vehicles without the proper registration.
