A Baldwin County Commissioner defeated a Fairhope dentist Tuesday to end a bitterly fought race for the Republican nomination to the Alabama Senate District 32 seat. Chris Elliott, 38, held a nearly 700 vote lead over Dr. David Northcutt, 51, with all but two precincts counted. But Elliott and his campaign were confident the two remaining precincts did not have enough votes to alter a 51-48 percent lead. Turnout in Baldwin County was 15.6 percent, according to the Alabama Secretary of State's Office. "It's close and it was a hard-fought race," Elliott said while celebrating with his family and campaign team at the Timber Creek Golf Course clubhouse in Spanish Fort. "I want to thank Dr. Northcutt on a hard-fought race. We got to talk about issues and two competing views on how to lead Baldwin County and the state of Alabama. It's time to bring the community back together and Baldwin County back together." Northcutt, who was gathered with his supporters at his dental office's … [Read more...] about Chris Elliott wins bitterly contested GOP runoff for Senate District 32 seat
Office contests team building
Doug Bland not only lost a Champions Indoor Football opponent last week.The Quad-City Steamwheelers owner watched his old team fold up financially, less than a year after selling the Dallas Marshals."It's depressing knowing what the franchise was when I handed it over to what it is now," Bland said Wednesday."I've got some of my old players and employees calling, and they're going through some hard times right now. I feel terrible. It's tough."He's broken a lot of promises to a lot of people. It's very disheartening."Bruce Badgett, who purchased the Marshals from Bland, pulled the plug just before last weekend, citing "circumstances beyond our control," in a press release.Bland's sale of the Mesquite Arena to another group "led to multiple adjustments in ownership," according to the release, and "along with the relocation to Dallas, the unusual series of events caused strain on the team."Badgett also discussed selling the team to "several quality candidates" in an attempt to salvage … [Read more...] about Steamwheelers owner’s former team folds

It was a Friday night in the newsroom and while some of us were preparing to publish a daily newspaper, the rest of us were preparing the Peeps. This was no fluff story though. Well, OK, this story does involve marshmallow fluff, but we still take seriously our roles as judges of the 2018 Pioneer Press Peeps Diorama Contest. Now in its 15th year, the contest that began as a way to have a little fun with these love-’em-or-hate-’em seasonal sugar critters has inspired the world to see the Peep as a muse (we’ve received entries from as far away as Paris and New Zealand). These marshmallow bunnies and chicks represent an annual opportunity for us to gauge the Peepgeist of the day in politics, pop culture, sports, literature, celebrity and news headlines, as well as odes to history, seasons and, always, life in Minnesota. And, although we never would have predicted it in 2004, our diorama contest would end up being copied by many other publications, including the … [Read more...] about 2018 Pioneer Press Peeps Diorama Contest: Ready for a sugar rush?

Will they make good choices? Can you really trust them? If you've built a resilient culture, the answer is yes.
