Word has come into Sweet Swine Scoop that 38 Sweet Swine County citizens have decided to throw their seed-corn caps into the ring to fill one available County Commissioner seat. However, it is yet to be determined if each of these candidates (pictured below) are legally qualified to run. The scuttlebutt at Edie's Cafe is that a few candidates could be on the verge of being disqualified due to age (too young or too old), and others for having unpaid moving-violation tickets issued by Officer Dave for various infractions including inoperable rear-end lights on hay wagons and manure spreaders. (All county residents are reminded that all farm equipment using county roads must be in functioning condition!)
