Last Wednesday, a record 218,162 primary ballots were mailed from the local elections office. And, County Auditor Greg Kimsey is projecting a local turnout of up to 40 percent, a few percentage points above primary turnouts in recent years. That higher turnout projection could be attributed to the fact that several open races (no incumbent) are on the ballots.

LSU had been experiencing a magical season in 1958 and had a record of 11 wins and 0 losses after the end of the season. Iowa went on to play in the Rose Bowl and won in dominant fashion. In their game they managed to win with a record of 38 12. This is why the 49ers are on their third head coach in the last three seasons. Chip Kelly, fired by the Philadelphia Eagles before the 2015 season ended, and his up tempo offensive system are now in the Bay Area. His system is a far departure from the style that brought the 49ers so much on field success with Jim Harbaugh.

Keep buying. It pretty crazy, she says. Like the creativity, and I think that what we bringing to the NFL.. These concepts have certainly been developed in the business arena as well. Mr. Covey’s seminal book was The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

By some freakish circumstances, the Ravens made it to this rematch of last year’s AFC conference final. Most will remember that affair when New England emerged with a fortunate 23 20 win after Lee Evans dropped what would have been a game winning touchdown pass and Billy Cundiff botched a game tying field goal try. Baltimore backers got the money in that game as the ever popular Patriots were a seven point choice in that one.

The Eagles be the NFL best team at season end? Probably not. But they are making progress and they have earned the top spot after an impressive triumph Thursday night at Carolina. Second year QB Carson Wentz is getting better all the time while utilizing the help he has around him on a bolstered offense.

“You look at some of the things that have happened, some of the injuries we’ve had to deal with, those types of circumstances, things you can’t control. There’s some other things that we could have done better, obviously. We’ve lost five games by three points or less.

ELLIOTT OFF THE FIELD: With the NFL investigation that led to a suspension still looming last offseason, Elliott had trouble keeping his name out of the headlines. He was caught on video pulling down a woman’s shirt during a St. Patrick’s Day parade an incident that was referenced in the league’s letter detailing his punishment, although it wasn’t a factor in the ruling..

Any bank in the region can borrow an unlimited amount, provided it pledges eligible collateral. Banks will inevitably profit, but that is a secondary issue for the ECB. Buenemann, an ECB spokesman, declined to comment. During his Wednesday bond hearing, an attorney for ICE argued that child abuse case and drunken driving offenses from 2003 and 2008 showed Niec is a threat to the community. She said citations for speeding and driving without proof of insurance show a lack of respect for the law. She also drew the judge’s attention to a previous domestic violence charge, saying a jury’s quick acquittal in that case of Niec showed he “played the doctor card” to get out of trouble..

It also goes to show why an 800 series is so difficult to attain. Despite not getting a strike on just two shots out of three dozen all night, he fell nearly halfway back from 900 to 800. Two fewer strikes, and one of them not spared, and he could missed 800 altogether..

Critics of Wilson will point out that a matchup with the Seahawks means a date with the NFL’s most difficult pass defense since 2012, the year Wilson came into the league. In those nine games over the last three seasons, those Super Bowl MVPs have a collective 0.8 touchdown to interception ratio and average of 6.0 yards per pass attempt. Both figures are a testament to the Seahawks’ destructive defense..

With Garcon coming back, WR is not a huge need, especially since JG made all his receivers look all pro. They should re sign Hyde, because if they do not, he may go to the Seahawks. They should maybe even sign Frank Gore, for his veteran leadership.

The Cardinals have lost four games, but there is little shame in losing three of them to the Seahawks, Saints and 49ers. This visitor no longer ranks with that trio and the Falcons have yet to win on the road this season. Last week results produced a short line here.

Watching the 5 foot 8, 206 pound Rice viciously connect with Palmer, an image that will define him forever, will make you cringe. Seeing Rice casually go about his business after hitting Palmer in the face will drop your jaw.

From what I’ve been reading, Richard Childress, a team owner, and Richard (The King) Petty, team owner and former driver, both said they would fire crew members if they were to protest. Also Tony Stewart, team owner and former driver, said the protest is disrespectful and shouldn’t be done. A lot of people have been saying NASCAR as an organization supports the President, and it’s just not the case, even if some drivers and a majority of the fans do support the President.

For instance, Sanders wants to spend $1 trillion over 10 years on infrastructure. That’s a lot of money, but it’s significantly less than experts say we need to repair all of our crumbling roads, bridges, water systems, and so on. And infrastructure spending creates immediate jobs and has economic benefits that persist over time, which we’d also have to take into account in deciding whether it’s a good idea.

In the fourth quarter, Trubisky got on the board as an NFL quarterback thanks to some luck and trickery. Throwing across his body towards the endzone, his pass was tipped by a Vikings’ defender into the hands of Zach Miller who caught the ball for the score. Then Trubisky ran in the two point conversion on a double handoff that ended with Miller tossing to Trubisky on the outside for a score to make it 17 17..

They’re doomed This just isn’t the same defense without Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and Cliff Avril. Handing play calling duties to offensive coordinator Matt Nagy is paying dividends. The defense is learning to play without All Pro safety Eric Berry, giving up 15 or fewer points in each of the past three games.

It’s peculiar, even by EPS standards. Last January, police in Edmonton adopted a new practice of not releasing the names of homicide victims in certain instances. In many of those cases, the dead person was the victim of a domestic homicide allegedly killed by a partner or family member.

For the second game, he wanted the team with the cool band to win. (Nope. Not going to tell you which teams.). Daluiski, going off reported information and video of the hit, said plates are used routinely to repair fractures, but they do not expedite healing. Fractures heal by normal biology and that biology, Daluiski said, doesn’t change with a plate.”Essentially, the plate is keeping the bone straight, and it’s also giving it stability so we can start to move patients and get their elbow moving,” Daluiski said. “A lot of patients have it in forever, and especially for high impact athletes, if we take plates out, the screw holes are truly holes.

SAN DIEGO (CNS) The Chargers’ proposal to build a stadium and convention center annex in downtown San Diego would generate only $2.3 million in additional annual hotel room tax revenue, while costing $67 million a year in public investment, according to a report made available Wednesday.The study from the San Diego Tourism Marketing District, which receives a 2 percent fee on room rates in order to fund promotions, said the “revenue does not justify the combined investment and annual operating expenses of the stadium convention center.”The Chargers’ $1.8 billion plan is scheduled to go before voters in the November general election. If passed, it would raise hotel room taxes by effectively four percentage points in order to help pay for construction and operation of the facility in the East Village.The team and the National Football League would also chip in toward the construction cost. The initiative requires two thirds voter approval.The study, conducted by Convention, Sports Entertainment Facilities Consulting of Chicago, also said the annex is too far from the existing center to be used by a single convention, that event planners prefer the location of the current center and its proximity to hotels, and that the proposed annex floor space would be unacceptable, among other things.The consultants also said the annex would wind up competing for smaller, short term business with the convention center and hotel meeting rooms.The Chargers ballot measure recently gained the support of the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, but is generally opposed by the local tourism industry, who want the current center to be expanded.Team officials were critical of today’s report.”The results of this study were pre determined from the outset by a few highly self interested hotel owners who have once again wasted taxpayer money on a misbegotten effort to justify a contiguous convention center expansion that has already been struck down by the courts and that is unlikely to be built,” Chargers adviser Fred Maas told the San Diego Union Tribune.Whose grammar reigns supreme between the two Super Bowl contenders?

Referee: Carl Cheffers. Ironically, Mr. Cheffers was last seen throwing that flag on Eric Fisher, a call that become controversial only because the national sports media has to create controversy to fuel its inane sports arguments shows. NFL Network Ian Rapoport says the Raiders will introduce Jon Gruden as their new head coach at a press conference on Tuesday, confirming all suspicions and beliefs.

While the rebates will lead to more spending, Marston notes, the lack of a long term tax cut will make the stimulus package less effective than the one in 2001. At the same time, the Fed interest rate cuts will not work as well because today credit problems are caused by lenders fear of risk rather than a shortage of money to lend. Reducing rates will not necessarily reduce that fear.
