    With no intention of casting aspersions on any elected officials, we take note of the fact that in several local elections, the incumbents are most likely handily returning to office.
    In Greenwood, the mayor and two members of council are thus far unopposed. Officially. We doubt at this point anyone will step up and file as a write-in candidate, but it could happen. Only one council seat, that of Ronnie Ables, is facing opposition this November as challenger Keith McCaslan announced early on his intention to run.
