The Des Moines Register’s High School Football Super 10 Rankings, Week 7.

Des Moines Register

WAUKEE, Ia. — Greetings from Waukee Stadium. We’ve made it to Week 7, the regular season finale. Can you believe it?

I can. Barely. But also fully and completely. Everybody involved has done a great job ensuring we’d get to this point, and will hopefully continue that work to make it so we can keep playing all the way through the state finals next month in Cedar Falls.

This game, between No. 5 Waukee and No. 2 Urbandale, could go a small ways in deciding both team’s respective paths to the UNI-Dome.

Waukee enters at 4-2 overall and on a two-game winning streak. The Warriors are as dangerous as any team in Class 4A, with a talented quarterback in Jakob Holcomb, talented playmakers all over the field, in Alex Lindquist, Aaron Smith, Dale Stout and Eddie Saidat Jr. They’re battle tested, too, having faced three other ranked teams so far.

Urbandale is 5-0, but it’s been something of a charmed 5-0. Currently, the J-Hawks have only beaten one team with a record above .500 — Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln, which is 5-1 against teams with a combined record of 9-20. Still, there’s no denying the talent, with Division I prospects Jaden Harrell, Max Llewellyn and Tucker Langenberg leading the way.

A win for the J-Hawks would solidify them as a bonafide 4A contender, and perhaps position them more favorably once the playoff draws are announced on Saturday. But a win for Waukee would be more evidence of their overall strength, and perhaps throw a wrench into those postseason pairings.

This game will reveal a lot, and should be fun to watch unfold.

Other games are worth following tonight, too. No. 1 Southeast Polk plays

White House Floats $1.8 Trillion Stimulus Offer in Last-Ditch Effort: Live Updates

White House Floats $1.8 Trillion Stimulus Offer in Last-Ditch Effort: Live Updates

The White House, seeking to revive stimulus talks that President Trump called off just days ago, planned on Friday to put forward its largest offer for economic relief yet, as some Republicans worried about being blamed by voters for failing to deliver needed aid ahead of the election.

The new proposal, for Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to present to congressional Democrats, would increase the White House’s plan for coronavirus stimulus to $1.8 trillion.

The president “would like to do a deal,” Larry Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council, said on the Fox Business Network on Friday, in the latest head-snapping turn in the on-again-off-again negotiations. The overall price tag of the offer was confirmed by two people familiar with the discussions, who spoke on condition of anonymity to disclose details of the talks.

Fanning the sense of optimism, Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter: “Covid Relief Negotiations are moving along. Go Big!”

The prospects of a compromise remained remote, however, given the opposition of many Republicans to another large infusion of federal virus aid. Speaking to reporters in Kentucky, Senator Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, cast doubt on the chances of a deal, saying political divisions remained too deep less than a month before Election Day.

“The situation is kind of murky and I think the murkiness is a result of the proximity to the election and everybody kind of trying to elbow for political advantage,” Mr. McConnell said. “I’d like to see us rise above that like we did back in March and April, but I think that’s unlikely in the next three weeks.”

Yet the White House was working

In Europe, Hopes for an Economic Recovery Are Fading: Live Updates

In Europe, Hopes for an Economic Recovery Are Fading: Live Updates

What hopes remained that Europe was recovering from the economic catastrophe delivered by the pandemic have all but disappeared as the lethal virus has resumed spreading rapidly.

France, Europe’s second-largest economy, this week amplified the concern as the government downgraded its forecast pace of expansion for the last three months of the year from an already minimal 1 percent to zero. Overall, the statistics agency predicts the economy will contract by 9 percent this year.

The diminished expectations are a direct outgrowth of alarm over the revival of the virus. France reported nearly 19,000 new cases on Wednesday — a one-day record, and nearly double the number seen the day before. The surge prompted President Emmanuel Macron to announce new restrictions, including a two-month shutdown of cafes and bars in Paris and surrounding areas.

In Spain, the central bank governor this week warned that the accelerating spread of the virus could force the government to impose restrictions that would produce an economic contraction of as much as 12.6 percent this year.

The European Central Bank’s chief economist on Tuesday cautioned that the 19 countries that share the euro currency may not recover from the disaster until 2022, with those that are dependent on tourism especially vulnerable.

Summer increasingly feels like a distant memory.

In August, with infection rates down, lockdowns lifted, and many Europeans indulging in the sacred ritual of the summer holiday, signs of revival were abundant. Many European economies expanded dramatically as people returned to shops, restaurants and vacation destinations.

Hopes had also been buoyed by a landmark agreement forged by the European Union to raise a $750 billion ($883 billion) euro relief

Vice Presidential Debate: Live Updates and Analysis

On one level, Vice President Mike Pence and California Sen. Kamala Harris have a relatively easy task ahead of them in Tuesday’s presidential debate: make it more cordial than their bosses inaugural debate last week. But even if they accomplish that — and given the low bar, there’s little reason to think they won’t — both candidates have individual challenges they face on stage tonight in Salt Lake City.

Pence will almost certainly find himself on the defense, answering for the Trump Administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, which polling shows most Americans deem lackluster at best. He will also have to defend his decision to ignore public health guidelines and continue in-person campaign events this week, even as his boss is now sidelined with the virus.

While Harris won’t have to answer these questions — she’s not currently Vice President and the Biden campaign has taken significantly more safety precautions in its own campaign – it won’t be a breeze for her either. While she has earned a reputation as a formidable debater, women on the stage have historically had to walk a fine line not to appear aggressive towards their male counterparts; just ust look at Hillary Clinton four years ago, forced to remain calm while Trump deemed her a “nasty woman.”

Pence and Harris may not wear masks during the debate, but viewers won’t be able to escape the imagery of the coronavirus thanks to two
