Brandon voters overwhelmingly reject park project

   BRANDON, S.D. (AP) - Residents of the southeastern South Dakota city of Brandon have rejected plans for a $12.5 million park project.
     Unofficial results show that nearly 94 percent of the 2,074 people who voted Tuesday opposed the Aspen Park project.
     The proposal involved updating the town's pool, upgrading a playground, paving parking areas, adding a new entrance, and adding softball and baseball fields. The owner of a home valued at $100,000 would have seen property taxes rise about $300 annually.
