News Briefs: Final Vote Count, Police Reports
Posted on: 11/20/2012
By  Mike Cullums

The 2012 general election is finally, officially behind us. After twelve days of anxious waiting by several people, the final count of local ballots revealed no changes. Margins barely budged as a result of the final canvass, which included provisional ballots.
Ron Feathers will join David White and incumbent Tim Irvine as Washington County Commissioners, and they will be facing a tight budget being made even tighter by the failure of the county children’s services levy.
Final Washington County results are here.

A strange incident in downtown Marietta is under investigation by Marietta Police.   At noon on Monday, a man and woman say they were travelling between the 600 and 300 blocks of Greene Street, past the Williamstown Bridge ramp, when an SUV pulled up on the driver’s side and one of its occupants fired a marshmallow gun at them. The SUV then pulled along the right side of their car and another marshmallow was fired - this one hitting the female passenger in the corner of her eye.  The incident remains under investigation. If you saw such an incident along Greene Street at noon Monday, please call the police department at (740) 376-2007.

Checking other Marietta Police reports...
Last weekend an officer was dispatched to check on the welfare of a young woman who was reported to be living in a tent under the Putnam Bridge. Ashana Long, 20, who gave a Beverly address, was arrested and taken to jail on a warrant for contempt from Marietta Municipal Court.
On Saturday evening, officers responded to a report of a disturbance at the Frontier Shopping Center. They arrested James O’Brien, 35, of 904 Fourth Street for domestic violence after he was found in an argument with a woman in a parked vehicle. O'Brien allegedly slapped her in the face with an open hand. He was taken to jail.
