ELECTION: Different paths after ending

Wednesday after the election seems to come very suddenly. Neighborhood lawn signs start coming down quickly. Winners begin planning. Those defeated wonder what went wrong — and give thanks to all who supported them.

All that work that led to Tuesday’s vote — as well as early voting — and now we turn the page. It has been an engaging election season. There were lots of candidates, plenty of issues and — as always — a bit of nastiness.

As of this morning, we know the results. The voters have spoken. It is now time to start to hurry up and look to the future.
