Wednesday morning report, Oct. 28

Five things to know this Wednesday morning: 

1.) The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder's office has canceled the Downey Unified School District election for Area 2 due to insufficient candidates, according to reporter Alicia Edquist.

The seat will be appointed to incumbent Tod Corrin in lieu of an election.


2.) Carrie Redfox, a guidance counselor at Doty Middle School, is  a finalist for the Press-Telegram's "Amazing Women" award. 

“What sets Carrie apart from others, and makes her truly, overwhelming amazing, is the unselfish heart she so willingly displays as she creates programs to minister to students in need,” her mother, Leah Francisco, told the PT

“I was raised to have a caring heart for others,” Redfox said. “My experiences have taught me to have compassion for kids who are having a hard time. The reward I get back from helping them is incredible.”


3.) Warren High will host its annual superhero baseball games this Thursday and Friday on its baseball field. 

The freshman/sophomore game is Thursday at 3 p.m., while varsity will face the JV team Friday at the same time. 

Players and coaches will be dressed in costume as they play an unofficial game. Games are open to the public.
