A small outbreak of measles stemming from a Clay County family has some area doctors worried that more may catch the illness. After traveling abroad to the Pacific Rim, an infant who wasn't immunized to the disease was diagnosed and spread it to two family members last week.

Clay County voters have rejected a change in their governance structure. It was the third failed attempt to take much of the politics out of county government.
The Clay County Election Commission reports a 16 percent voter turnout, with the measure being defeated by some 6,200 votes. There were 15,200 'no' votes from Clay County residents. Nine thousand voted 'yes.'
Voters earlier approved creating a panel of seven Republicans and seven Democrats to design a constitutional form of governing.
