BASTROP, La., (KNOE 8 News) - Updating returns in Morehouse Parish tonight, Arthur Jones has come from behind to defeat sitting Mayor Betty Alford-Olive. The final (but unofficial) vote, with all 22 precincts reporting shows Jones with 1041 votes and Alford-Olive with 971 votes.

In the case of that controversial school district tax, the proposed tax is apparently heading for defeat by a vote of 2659 to 1316 voting against the measure with 40 of 42 precincts reporting.

For the most part, in other parishes voting today, only the absentee counts are in at this point.
