Bob L. Head (of Iowa) out to huge lead

Tuesday's Telegraph Herald carried a feature story reporting that a Maquoketa man, Robert L. Head, was one of three finalists to win a promotion sponsored by the Portland (Ore.) Beavers minor league baseball team.

The promotion featuring Robert L. Head is, of course, a bobblehead event.

Men whose actual names are Bob L. Head are vying for the chance to be feted, all expenses paid, at a Beavers ball game in August. (The other candidates are from California and Indiana.) The winner will be determined by the number of votes registered on the team's web site.

As of 8 p.m. CDT, Iowa's nominee -- no doubt propelled by the TH article -- has jumped to a huge lead. He had 70% of the vote. California's Bob L. Head had 17% while Indiana's had 13%.

However, this is no time to let down your guard! Go to the Beavers' web site and vote -- and vote often! Balloting continues until 7 p.m. CDT on May 31.

Let's send "our" Bob L. Head to Portland!
