Small Town Oregon Mayor Decided By Coin Toss

Only in Oregon. Last week, the tiny ranching community of Prairie City, Oregon (population 1,100) had a dead-locked race for mayor. After numerous recounts, it was still a 125-to-125 tie. So they decided to settle it like men and brawl to the death toss a coin to decide the winner. A high-noon showdown was set.

Yesterday was the showdown. With 150 or so townsfolk looking on, head's was called, and the town had its new mayor.
