Final tally gives nod to Jeff Holcomb in GOP commission primary in Hernando

BROOKSVILLE — Software consultant Jeff Holcomb won a narrow victory over Realtor Laurie Pizzo in the Republican primary for the District 4 seat on the Hernando County Commission on Tuesday.

By the time final results were posted after 11 p.m., Holcomb had just 79 votes more than Pizzo. But that was not close enough to trigger an automatic recount, according to Supervisor of Elections Shirley Anderson.

Holcomb's campaign focus has been on growing the local economy, pushing for economic development and not increasing tax rates.

He will face Democrat Dan Oliver and no party candidate H. David Werder in November general election.

    Nation

    LOS ANGELES — When O.J. Simpson told a Nevada parole board last week that he's led a "conflict-free life," he seemed to overlook a few episodes that had him cycling in and out of courtrooms and jail cells for nearly 20 years before the Las Vegas hotel-room heist that sent him to prison in 2008.

    Former NFL football star O.J. Simpson appears via video for his parole hearing at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nev., on Thursday, July 20, 2017.  Simpson was granted parole Thursday after more than eight years in prison for a Las Vegas hotel heist, successfully making his case in a nationally televised hearing that reflected America's enduring fascination with the former football star.
