Baxter Estates Elections 2001
It was neighbor vs. neighbor vs. neighbor up until last week in the Village of Baxter Estates, after a rare three-way, contested election for mayor was announced. Current Village Trustees John Maher, on the Independent Party line, and Jim Neville, the Unity Party's candidate, were both challenging incumbent Mayor John Weaver, who had filed his nominating petition. However, even though his name will appear on the ballot on Tuesday, March 20, he has withdrawn from the race. Weaver was elected mayor two years ago, after serving for years as a trustee.
On the Bay
On Sunday, March 11, as the Frostbite YC Race Committee headed down to the dock, the wind was 10-12 knots out of the NW, and appeared to be steady, with no gusts. Two "no jibe" courses were set due to wind conditions. Wind for the first race stayed in the 10-12 knot range, but during the second race, the wind started picking up to 14-16 knots, and by the end of the race, winds were at 18-20 knots, with higher gusts. Race Committee abandoned further racing for the day, and all boats sailed back to land with no capsizes. Once on shore, the RC noticed that the winds built to 25-30 knots, confirming the correct choice to cancel racing for the rest of the day. Winners: 1. Matt Kelly/Sue Kinsey and 2) John Browning/Laura Browning.
