MADERA - While the future of our country maybe in question to nearly fifty percent of the voters after last night's Presidential election, the future of Madera is on track for continued success and safety. Measure K, a half cent sales tax increase that will benefit police and fire protection, easily passed with over 80% of the voters approval. It took the lead from the absentee ballots reported at 8:30pm all the way to the final count at 11:25pm.

It was the same for the status quo on the Madera Unified School District's Board of Trustees, with Ray Siebert and Ric Arredondo easily winning their reelection. And after a lot of hard work with his campaign walking door to door meeting the voters of Madera's district 2, Jose Rodriguez had a fairly easy election night that resulted winning his own seat.

MADERA - The 2016 Battle of Stadium Road was a more one-sided game than the final score may have indicated. The boys of Madera South were seeking their second straight Stadium Road victory over Madera High Coyotes who failed to win a single game all season. This was the second shut-out season for the Coyotes since the 1996 season and their ninth losing season in the last ten years.

Madera High School Athletic Director John Fernandez had this to say of the Stadium Road Showdown, "This game is about Community. Our primary goal is about showcasing. Showcasing the talents of our students, from our football players, to our cheerleaders, to our band and color guard. We want to celebrate them all. It's not about football, scores or stats. We want our community to feel proud."
