By David Anderson, Tillicum
Nearing the half-way mark in the cross-country race to win the first place prize of $25,000 to help build Habitat homes, 2nd place Ohio has now outvoted Tillicum eight out of the last nine days. What used to be a comfortable lead of 645 votes has steadily dropped to below 500.
This is not the first time Tillicum has seen a large lead disappear. After rocketing into first place in only the 8th day of the 105 day contest, a near-200-vote lead was totally gone in just the next 10 days.
Slowly, imperceptibly, slipping into the abyss of might-have-beens, Tillicum of late has even been outvoted by upstart, and currently third place, Seattle. Seattle! Remember to vote every 24 hours at www.ahschallenge.com and especially on December 3 since every vote cast that day is doubled. Thank you!
