S.J. CAHN Three days of absurdly high fevers will change a man. That's how I spent the bulk of last week, pushing our old thermometer to see if it could, in fact, register 104. I don't recommend it, although tearing your psyche apart via a really fine sick does wonders for the soul. As my thoughts started coming back together, they occasionally alighted on our local political scene (I'm telling you, I was really sick). So, all that aside, here are some post-feverish thoughts on November's elections, in no particular order of importance.

It was a celebration he paid about $670,000 for, but longtime Newport Beach businessman Jack Croul was nowhere to be found at the City Hall in the Park election night watch party as early returns showed the group ahead by 10 points. Croul spent election week in the Caribbean on a chartered boat with a bunch of old high school friends. The retired businessman and philanthropist said he doesn’t know much about politics, and he claims his generous donations to City Hall in the Park were done out of nothing more than a sense of civic duty.

In the new order of things, Pilot columnists take a hike every fourth week as our contribution to the paper's freelance budget demands. Unfortunately, the news that provides grist for the columnists doesn't always happen on that schedule. Like today. When I would have been able to fill a column last Thursday with election stuff, I was benched. So I decided to do that column anyway and turn it in on Wednesday, as I knew the editors would be immersed in election news and wouldn't notice.

Deirdre Newman The gap between the two candidates jockeying for the third open seat on the City Council has shrunk markedly since election night, with Planning Commissioner Eric Bever holding just a 68-vote lead over his colleague, Bruce Garlich. The shift is because of the addition of paper and most of the absentee ballots to the vote tallies. There are still 60,000 provisional ballots that need to be counted as well, said Brett Rowley, spokesman for the Orange County Registrar of Voters.

Huntington Beach Assemblyman Tom Harman was clinging to a 289-vote lead Wednesday in his bid to be the Republican nominee for the 35th District state Senate seat. Less than 1% separated Harman from GOP opponent Diane Harkey, a Dana Point city councilwoman. A little more than 9,000 absentee ballots were counted Wednesday, and roughly 600 provisional ballots remained to be tallied as the election went into its second day without a decisive victory. Though the Republican winner could change, it's statistically impossible for either candidate to take more than 50% of the votes, so Harkey or Harman will face Democrat Larry Caballero on the June 6 ballot.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Conrad Giedt didn’t vote for President Barack Obama. “I’ve always leaned Republican,” he said, opening up his overcoat to reveal a tie emblazoned with elephants. And yet he called his congressman, Rep. John Campbell, the day after the election to see if he could get tickets to the presidential inauguration. “Tuesday evening [election night] my oldest son said, ‘Dad, we have to go,’” the Newport Beach man said.

Incumbent Councilmen Keith Curry and Steve Rosansky both had substantial leads over challengers Dolores Otting and Gloria Alkire in early election returns Tuesday night. “I’m feeling pretty good right now, said Curry, who was in positioned to win his reelection bid for District 7 against Otting late Tuesday. “We’re pleased to be where we are. It’s not over, but I’m optimistic and Newport voters seem to be saying, ‘We can’t be bought,’” Curry said.

In the pressure cooker of election night, while waiting for results and then reacting to them with all possible haste, it's easy for reporters to forget the important things — like what kind of food people served at their parties, and who showed up, with or without clever quips for the media. In that spirit, here are some tidbits from Newport-Mesa, and the GOP bash in Irvine, from Tuesday night's festivities. Newport-Mesa school board hopeful Sandy Asper's party at a Newport Dunes clubhouse featured Mexican food, a very slow laptop delivering Orange County election results, and a large TV with national results on CNN. Just before the first results came in after 8 p.m., the crowd of about 40 clapped and chanted "San-dy!

JOSEPH N. BELL About midnight on Nov. 2, when Ohio seemed hopelessly lost and I went finally to bed, I told myself I would write nothing more about this election. It was time to move on. Then the Pilot, as a contribution to community health, published a Forum commentary by clinical psychologist Steven Hendlin telling those of us who were experiencing a "post-election emotional letdown" how to slog our way through it. Although I felt he minimized some of the consequences of this election, his suggestions were rational and helpful.
