Newly-elected 43rd Circuit Court Judge Tom Chapman (center) was sworn into office Saturday morning, January 1, 2011, to the loud cheers of a full house of his supporters in the circuit courtroom of the Livingston County Courthouse.

Wife, Lindy (left), held the Bible that Chapman swore his oath on during the ceremony. The Bible used was one that had belonged to Chapman's great-grandfather, Lewis Chapman, who had been an attorney in Livingston County during the 1870s. The oath was administered by Daren L. Adkins, associate circuit court judge of Daviess County.

Chapman proceeded to thank his supporters then invited them over to his house to watch football and celebrate.

Several county officials were sworn into office on Friday, Dec. 31, 2010, including James Valbracht, Brent Elliott, Sherry Parks, Adam Warren, Kelly Christopher, and Eva Danner.
