Coin Toss Breaks Tie In Scribner City Council Race

The tail side of a Susan B. Anthony dollar decided that Melissa Larson will join the Scribner City Council.

The Fremont Tribune says Larson and Nona Wiese tied at 166 votes after the Nov. 2 election.

Under state law, ties must be decided by some other method, such as a coin flip or drawing for high card from a deck.

In Mitchell, a king of spaces put Konni Lebruska-Einfalt on the Mitchell school board instead of Patti Grentz, who drew a six of clubs.

Larson and Wiese opted for the flip of fate.

Larson tossed Susan B. into the air Wednesday at the Dodge County Courthouse in Fremont.

Wiese calls heads. It's tails. Larson wins.

The two women hugged, and Wiese said she and Larson are on "the same side on 95 percent of the issues in our town."
