MINDEN, Nev. -- A county board election, which resulted in a tie was decided by a draw of the cards on Friday. "The Record-Courier of Gardnerville reports that Natalie Yanish drew the ace of clubs Friday to win a seat on the Kingsbury Grade General Improvement District board over Robert McDowell, who drew the eight of diamonds," the Star Tribune said. "The two tied for third place in the Nov. 2 election. They finished with 373 votes each in an 11-way race for three seats," FOX 5 news said.
