I’m Nicholas Bratcher with KJACK News and these are your top headlines for Friday, November Ninth.

Police were dispatched to a Flagstaff Middle School yesterday, after a texting banter between two students got out of hand. Officials report two students at Sinagua Middle School exchanged text messages that seemed threatening to their peers. However, both students were friends, and the one who sent the messages reported himself when he learned police were involved.

Near Holbrook yesterday, the discovery of a body on the side of I40 resulted in the freeway being shut down for nearly an hour. Police identified the victim as thirty-three year old Randall Nelson. Nelson was a Holbrook resident, and had sent messages to his family several hours prior to the accident.

A judge in Phoenix is set to rule today on whether County recorders in Maricopa and Pima County should stop counting votes in the Senate race between Democrat Kyrsten Sinema and Republican Martha McSally. The lawsuit filed by Republicans argued that the counting methodology in these counties is inefficient, while Democrats argue that the suit is an attempt to suppress votes which could shift the race in Favor of Sinema. The two have run to fill the senate seat being Vacated by Republican, Jeff Flake.

The frigid temperatures we saw yesterday likely to continue today we’ve got a high of forty-seven degrees today, and nineteen tonight so get out those scarves and those beanies. No chance of rain in our current forecast, but watch for the winds. We have speed estimates of nine to fourteen miles per hour, but they could get as high as twenty-two miles per hour.
