Old West Alive and Well!

Sometimes I forget I live in the wild west.  Yes, there are plenty of Saguaro cactus around, lots of open desert just out of the city.  But when you live in a metropolitan area with a population of over 3 Million, you just forget.

Well in Cave Creek this week they had elections and the vote was a tie for city councilmen candidates Adam Trenk and Thomas McGuire.  The Maricopa County Superior Court Judge ordered the election be determined by a game of chance.

The Judge shuffled the cards, and the opponents each cut the deck, high card to win.  With the King of Hearts, Adam Trenk won the seat.

I couldn’t make this stuff up folks, the wild, west lives on!
