      Atlantic Beach election protest hearing continued

      After eight hours of testimony Wednesday, a protest hearing on last Tuesday's election results in Atlantic Beach will be continued until at least next Tuesday.

      Two write-in candidates won last Tuesday's town council elections. The residency of both candidates was in question at Wednesday's hearing, which was postponed last Saturday. The write-ins, Carolyn Cole and Windy Price beat out two incumbents, Charlene Taylor and Josephine Isom.

      Both Isom and Taylor and a third candidate, Paul Curry, filed protests.

      Officials say the election commission members will look at their calendars and figure out when they can continue the hearing next week.
