The results are in and the majority of Clay County residents are ready to welcome spring with open arms.
The Brazil Times recently asked on its online poll, "Are you ready for winter to make an exit?"
Readers were given two options to choose from, including:
* Absolutely. I'm looking forward to warmer weather, or
* No. I don't mind the colder temperatures. Bring on more snow!
A total of 361 responders took part in the poll, with 308 (85.3 percent) saying they were ready for warmer weather. A total of 14.7 percent (53 votes) said they didn't mind the cold temperatures.
In addition, eight respondents commented on the poll question.
One said, "Better enjoy this Indiana weather before it turns into 100-degrees," while another said, "I hate being cold. It's the worst."
Another said, "I'm tired of this cold weather. I'm ready for the spring!" while another said, "Bring on the 90-degree with ASAP! Never, ever will I complain about it being 'too hot' ever again!"
The Times' current online poll question deals with the Kernan-Shepard report.
The report, created by former governor Joe E. Kernan and Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard, calls for the streamlining of local government, including the removing of several elected positions. Rather, those positions would become appointed positions by one "county executive."

The Times is asking readers if they agree or disagree with the report.
As always, readers are encouraged to comment on this article.
