ANTELOPE VALLEY SCHOOLS: LANDAKER, OLENIK, NELSON OUT IN FRONT.

Byline: Charles F. Bostwick Daily News Staff Writer

Incumbents Steve Landaker and William Olenik, along with restaurant owner Brett Nelson, were in the lead Tuesday night for three seats on the Antelope Valley high school board, according to early returns.

Board member Sue Stokka, who distanced herself from her fellow incumbents in her campaign, was in fifth place behind retired teacher Deanna Larson.

Other candidates included Yolanda Deschene, a homemaker who didn't campaign, and Wayne Woodhall, an engineer.

In other Antelope Valley school races, early returns showed Eastside Union School District voters favoring Measure S, a $15.5 million school construction bond. But Eastside incumbents Martha Dolores Johnson and Willard Ritchie were trailing in their re-election bids.

Homemaker Ann Harris and Charles Cooke, a retired engineer, were leading for the two Eastside board seats.

All three Palmdale School District incumbents - Sheldon Epstein, Fred Thompson and Velma Trosin - were leading in their re-election bids. They faced challengers Connie Petit and Barbara Walsh.

In the Lancaster School District, incumbents Jeff Hanson, Greg Tepe and Richard T. White also were in the lead to retain their seats. Their challengers were businessman Keith Giles and electrician Edwin McClure.

In the Antelope Valley Community College District, office manager Betty J. Wienke, incumbent Betty Lou Nash and Lancaster city project manager Michael R. Adams were leading for three board seats. Longtime incumbent Herman Kicenski was in fourth place.

Also running were businessman John Mayfield; David Edmonson, a counselor-instructor; Michael Williams; and Michael Adams, a mortgage loan broker.

Westside Union School District challenger Christine LeBeau, a high school teacher, and incumbents Charles Haskell and Larry Bosma were in the lead for the three seats. Also running was Robin Kessler, a business owner.

Hughes Elizabeth Lakes Union School District incumbents Charles Compton, David Haerle and Lola Skelton Mantooth were in the lead for the three seats, trailed by challenger Robert W. Leder.

Wilsona School District's race for three board seats was too close to call in early returns, but incumbent Michael Brown trailed homemaker Patricia Greene, business owner Roger Oliver, and businessman Gregory Rollins.

Also running were the Rev. Rob Jackson and Emma Montesdeoca, a registered nurse.

In Kern County, Southern Kern Unified School District incumbents Roger King, Paul Rodriguez and Dennis Youngblood were in the lead for three available seats. They were challenged by Timothy Schank, a businessman and former board member.
