Democrats will control Oakland County Board of Commissioners
PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — For the first time in decades, Democrats are in the majority on the Board of Commissioners in Michigan's second-largest county.
Voters in Oakland County chose four Democrats in districts that usually go Republican. Democrats now will have a one-seat majority.
County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, a Republican, says he wasn't surprised by the election results Tuesday. He says he's always "reached across the aisle ... to pass a bipartisan, balanced" budget.
Utah State downs New Mexico 24-10 behind Hunt
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — LaJuan Hunt ran for 117 yards and two touchdowns and the Utah State defense forced four turnovers Saturday to beat New Mexico 24-10.
In a sloppy game on both sides, the Aggies (5-5, 3-3 Mountain West) did just enough to thwart a Lobos (3-6, 1-5) squad that has been impotent offensively. New Mexico didn't score a touchdown until 3:20 in the fourth quarter, giving it a streak of almost nine quarters without a TD.
