Overheating machines complicate Florida’s recount battle

in

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Florida’s election recount drama is intensifying as lawyers return to court and tallying machines break down ahead of a Thursday deadline to complete reviews of the senate and governor races.
Much of the trouble centers on the Democratic stronghold of Palm Beach County, where tallying machines have overheated. That’s caused mismatched results with the recount of 174,000 early voting ballots, forcing workers to go back and redo their work with no time to spare.

Finch won the 2001 Women’s College World Series playing for the University of Arizona and helped lead Team USA to the gold medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics and a silver medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics.

LPPJ ups size of Expo Center expansion

in

After awarding a bid last month to expand the North Louisiana Exhibition Center, the Lincoln Parish Police Jury voted Tuesday to execute a change order that would significantly increase the scope and cost of the project.
Adding a covered warm-up arena to the Expo Center has been a topic of discussion for the jury for several years. Rodeo and livestock events at the facility have grown beyond its current capacity, and the expansion would allow the Expo Center to put its surplus stalls to use and hold bigger events.

Lincoln Prep makes big SPS gains

While not a part of the Lincoln Parish school district, Lincoln Preparatory School still receives a School Performance Score from the Louisiana Department of Education each year, and the 2017-18 results released Thursday bear good news for the charter school.
Despite an overall tougher score formula this year and being given an “F” grade for the 2016-17 year, Lincoln Prep improved to a “C” this time around. Some of the boost came from the new school performance formula now factoring in how well a school encourages student growth.

More irregularities surface in Florida voting

in

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Florida’s election recount chugged along today as more irregularities are uncovered and a judge asked the warring sides to “ramp down the rhetoric,” saying it erodes public confidence in the elections for Senate and governor.
