Local election results are all the rage in this morning's mainstream media. Here's some of the other stories I was able to dig up...
A- Herald: You know you're addicted to the computer when you...
PALM BAY, Fla. -- Authorities say a Palm Bay teen chased his mother with a knife and beat his brother with a sugar cane because of a change to his computer privileges.
B- Herald: Election results may prove troublesome for Rudy Crew.
In an election night shocker that could spell the end of embattled Superintendent Rudy Crew's tenure in Miami, incumbent School Board member Evelyn Greer lost her seat to a retired principal whose recent offer to stay on the job for a $1 salary was rebuffed by the district.
The surprise victory by Larry Feldman could shift the balance of power on the Miami-Dade School Board.
Greer had been one of Crew's strongest supporters on the bitterly divided nine-member board. Feldman has said in the past he would bring new leadership to the nation's fourth-largest school district.
C- Herald: Even if you have good credit, good luck getting a mortgage.
'In areas like Brickell or the Biscayne corridor, there is no way to get a loan unless a borrower is willing to put 30 or 40 percent down,'' said William Zalaquett, a Keyes Co. Realtor who specializes in the area. ``Europeans, wealthy Northeasterners and the wealthy locals who have the cash can buy. The average working class here, they are left out.''
D- Herald: Morin.
E- Herald: The speech Barack should give according to Michael Putney.
Getting our beloved country back to its special status as a beacon of light and hope for the world will be harder. President Bush is a nice enough guy, but he has done so much harm that it's hard to know where the repairs should begin. I'd say in Iraq, where our military has done an outstanding job. So good, in fact, that I'll start drawing down troops almost immediately. But we'll be as careful getting out as we were careless getting in. Some of those troops will have to be recycled to Afghanistan, where we should have concentrated our anti-terrorism efforts in the first place. The Brits got their rear ends kicked there and so did the Soviets; we have to make sure we don't join the list.
F- Herald: Segafredo expands.
A Brickell hot spot is expanding in every sense of the word.
From more space to a revamped menu to two new locations -- one in Bal Harbor and one South Beach -- the owners of the local Segafredo franchise say they are ready to broaden their horizons.
''It made sense to expand. We are packed almost all day and there came a point where we couldn't fit people inside,'' co-owner Alejandro Ferllen said.
Worldwide the Segafredo name is mainly known for its coffee, but the Brickell location at 1421 S. Miami Ave. -- now 10,500 square feet after the expansion -- also now offers a wider selection of Italian foods, as well as a full bar.
G- Sun-Sentinel: Have you been strip searched?
More than 1,000 people improperly strip-searched by the Broward Sheriff's Office are about to get paid, taxpayers and insurance companies will get off cheaper than expected and lawyers will hit the jackpot.
Broward Circuit Judge Jeffrey Streitfeld has approved a final settlement giving $1,000 to anyone strip-searched after arrests on minor crimes like trespassing, public drunkenness and loitering between December 1998 and October 2007. Those charged with felonies or violent crime are not eligible.

I- WPLG: Election results.
J- WPLG: DMX drops the F-bomb in Miami-Dade court.
MIAMI -- Rapper DMX dropped the F-bomb during an extradition hearing in a Miami-Dade County courtroom Tuesday morning after learning he would spend another month in jail.
"I ain't going back to no f---ing jail," said DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons.
"Oh, well that just ingratiated you to me," said Judge Lawrence Schwartz. "I've never heard the F-word before, so it's OK."
