"It's been a rewarding and wonderful career and I look forward to going on into this part of my career my judicial career. I promise to do the best that I possibly can to be impartial, to administer justice, so that the people in Lincoln County can have confidence in their court system." Judge Yackle thanked his father among many for his guidance and upbringing in law.

He says as a judge he will look solely on the facts to make his decisions.
