A donkey basketball player at Friday's game at Robinson High School tries to hang on to her steed's reigns as she makes a pass. Robinson high school students, faculty and local community members competed at last week's event. The donkeys proved difficult for both teams as all the games were low scoring, but some fantastic shooting thrilled everyone who attended. (Blake Nash Photo)

Polling places mostly unchanged for Tuesday's primary
Most Crawford County voters will find their polling places in the same spots Tuesday as during last year's election.

The only change is in Honey Creek Precinct 1, where balloting will move from the Honey Creek Town House to the Flat Rock Community Center.
