What's news this week in Crittenden County...

If Kentucky is politically a Red State, then paint Crittenden County crimson. Voters across the nation went to the polls Tuesday to select everything from a President to down-ballot candidates for state and local government as well as ballot propositions. In Kentucky, the GOP wrested away the state House after 95 years of Democratic control. In Crittenden County, voters turned out in droves to choose Republicans across the board and elected two new members to Marion City Council.
