(Image: Jay Fullenkamp)Batesville native Curt Clawson was victorious in the Republican primary election for Florida’s 19th district Tuesday.A former businessman and top executive, Clawson has earned the party nod in his first venture in the political arena. The nomination is a step closer to the U.S. House for the former Batesville Bulldog basketball star.One thing is for certain. The 1978 Batesville High School graduate has not forgotten his roots. Longtime friend and classmate Jay Fullenkamp, of Batesville, was at the election headquarters at the Hyatt Regency in Bonita Springs, Florida on Tuesday.“Biggest thing about Curt is what he has kept through life and upheld. He has made it pretty big, but it is his loyalty he has shown over the years,” Fullenkamp said via phone from the hotel.Fullenkamp and Clawson remain close friends and even appeared in front of the camera together during the filming of a campaign commercial at Batesville High School in February.During the victory celebration, Fullenkamp noted that Republican and tea party supporters were in attendance and Clawson took a few moments to answer phone calls from House Speaker John Boehner and Florida Governor Rick Scott.Clawson will get back to the campaign trail and prepare for the election against Democrat April Freeman on June 24.The special election is to replace Republican Trey Radel, who stepped down earlier this year after a drug conviction.last_img read more

Sports Talk Shows

first_imgHave you ever heard your wife say this, “not another sports talk show”?  I am sure that at one time or another, especially on a weekend, you have heard these words.Recently, I saw an article that listed some of the top talk shows on cable TV.  Just a few of them are:  Inside the NBA, College Game Day, First-Take, Pardon the Interruption, Intentional Talk, and the Sportswriters.  It would be very easy to add at least 20 more to this list because each major sport now seems to have its own TV network.  ESPN alone has at least 3 channels on almost everybody’s TV package.I can watch them for about an hour but then they get boring.  I probably like Pardon the Interruption best, but I am not stuck on it.   If this is your “thing”,  go ahead and enjoy!  For me, I need a little more action.last_img read more

Chelsea v Arsenal – Talking Points

first_imgLong-time rivals Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger renew hostilities on Saturday, with plenty at stake for their sides. Defending Barclays Premier League champions Chelsea, incredibly, head into the match in 17th, with Arsenal sitting fourth but going in on the back of a defeat in the Champions League. Here, Press Association Sport looks at five key talking points ahead of the match. WILL MOURINHO’S CULL CONTINUE? The ‘Special One’ has been unusually unpredictable so far this season, and a poor start to the campaign has put several regulars in the firing line. Under-performing quartet John Terry, Nemanja Matic, Diego Costa and Branislav Ivanovic were all benched against Maccabi Tel Aviv on Wednesday and on Saturday morning we should know whether they were rested for their own benefit or dropped for the team’s. WHERE FOR WALCOTT? The question of whether or not Theo Walcott can be a successful central striker for Arsenal has been lingering – mostly unanswered – for the best part of a decade. He returned to the number nine role against Stoke last weekend, scoring with arguably the toughest of several chances that came his way. Olivier Giroud returned at Dinamo Zagreb in midweek, but his careless sending-off – paired with Walcott’s goal from the bench – must leave Arsene Wenger tempted to throw his faith behind the England international. WILL PETR BETTER BEGOVIC? Petr Cech has already faced his old team-mates in the Community Shield, but his return to the ground he graced for so long should still be a big moment. Chelsea are hardly lacking for sub-plots at present, but the fact that Thibaut Courtois is out and they have Asmir Begovic in as understudy makes Cech’s appearance all the more tasty. CAN ARSENE END HIS STAMFORD BRIDGE BLUES? In the last three seasons, Arsenal’s cross-capital trip to Stamford Bridge has been a frustratingly fruitless one. The combined scoreline in those three matches is 10-1 in Chelsea’s favour, with the 2013/14 6-0 bulking the numbers. Whatever Arsene Wenger has been trying has clearly not worked and there is no use looking to his last success in October 2011 either – a 5-3 win coming courtesy of a hat-trick from the long departed Robin van Persie. WHAT’S EATING EDEN HAZARD? The Belgium playmaker has been the dash of magic in Chelsea’s forward line for the past couple of years, with Mourinho happily banging the drum for his ‘player of the year’ bid last term. Chelsea’s recent defensive problems have been well discussed, but Hazard’s slump has been just as important. A badly botched penalty in the 4-0 win over Maccabi Tel Aviv – and his refusal to even countenance taking the next spot-kick – suggest Hazard’s confidence is a serious issue. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
