Time travel in the classified ads

Lins Dorman saw something odd in the SR Legal Notices this morning.

There is an ad noting an election for mayor and a couple of council positions in Stateline, Idaho.

The ad says the election will be Nov. 3, 2009.

Dorman wonders if this means Stateline is simply four years behind the times or if people there just prefer living in the past.

I have to admit, I was not aware that there were elected offices in Stateline.

I have a call in to Kootenai County elections manager Carrie Phillips and will update this when I know more.

But if the good people in Stateline have invented time travel, this could be a big story.

UPDATE: Carrie Phillips called me back. Yes, she said, there are elected positions in Stateline.

Her theory about the ad? Some old election-notice boilerplate didn't get updated before being submitted to run as a classified.
