A round of applause, please, for the Wyandotte County Election Office.
Bruce Newby and his staff went the extra mile to round up election results from last night's Unified Government election.
Despite snow, sleet and all manner of natural obstacles, they had the final numbers ready by 9:15 p.m.
Many members of the staff spent the night in the office Monday night into Tuesday to ensure they'd be around to do their jobs Tuesday night.
That's worthy of the media's thanks -- and everyone else's, too.
