MUCH ADO ABOUT AN “HONEST” DEAL: In its January 13, 1966 edition TheNews reported that Lancaster Reeve Lloyd Fawthrop would seek re-election after a court had nullified his December victory over Raymond Alan Munro, who alleged the reeve had a conflict of interest. Nobody, including the judge, questioned the reeve’s integrity but the election was declared void because Mr. Fawthrop had received money from the municipality two days after the vote. The village had paid his company’s invoices because the Fawthrop firm was the only coal and lumber supplier in the municipality. Procuring such products elsewhere would have been inconvenient and more expensive. The judge’s verdict was academic. When a new election was called, Mr. Munro did not run again; Mr. Fawthrop was acclaimed.
