The special election to fill the vacancy of the late state Senator Dave Cox is now underway. Sample ballots have been mailed and permanent vote-by-mail ballots were sent Monday, Dec. 6.
The election will be a “consolidated” one with just one polling place — the county courthouse. Voters may vote by mail or at the courthouse. Other regular polling places will not be used.
Two cases of salmon poisoning in dogs have been confirmed in the last two to three weeks; Beckwourth veterinarian Dr. Martin Schafer treated them.

Old Forgay Point Road, which runs through private ranch lands between Pioneer and Forgay roads, is under contention, and has been for many years.
It’s legally considered a public road, because it was commonly used before the Crescent Grade on Highway 89 was completed.
