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 - Over 10,000 people made their way to the Madera Fair Grounds Saturday for the annual Madera Pomegranate Festival. The FREE festival which has been held at the Madera Airport for the last few years moved to the fairgrounds to meet the need for more space as the event has grown bigger and better every year.

This years event had twice as many booth spaces and twice as many food vendors as in years past. The worry of food vendors being able to compete and make enough money were soon dismissed after the gates were open. Debi Bray of the Madera Chamber of Commerce, sponsor of the event, says that this year vendors set records on sales with nearly all selling out of the products by the end of the day.
