John Lynch has won an unprecedented fourth term as governor of New Hampshire, an outcome that runs counter to the anti-incumbent, anti-Democratic sentiment that has imperiled other candidates elsewhere. Lynch first won the seat in a close race in 2004, but was reelected in 2006 and 2008 by landslide margins as Democrats also won the state Legislature and both congressional seats. But Republican John Stephen gave Lynch a tougher battle this year, aided by visits from high-profile GOP surrogates.

When attorney and Republican Party activist John J. Lynch ran for Los Angeles County tax assessor in 1986, he was shocked at the result - he won. "It was a surprise," said Lynch, and he wasn't the only one taken aback. Lynch, who had never run for elective office, was up against 11 other candidates, including two former state Assembly members - Gordon Hahn and Jim Keysor. Lynch spent only a few thousand dollars on the campaign, whereas Hahn spent $100,000 and Keysor $185,000. "I can't figure where John Lynch came from," Keysor said.

Reporting from Denver -- John Lynch , the retired All-Pro safety who played for Denver from 2004-07, said the Broncos would have been “foolish” not to pursue Peyton Manning as hard as they did. “I had the opportunity to play against [John] Elway, [Dan] Marino, Steve Young, Tom Brady,” Lynch said in a phone interview. “But the toughest player I've played against is Peyton, just because of the things he can do at the line of scrimmage. “Are there some holes on Denver's roster?

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Peyton Manning has had dozens of signature moments in his football career that the outside world didn't witness. Since childhood, Manning has jotted handwritten thank-you notes, and for years he has maintained a tradition of sending them to various NFL players retiring from the game. "I don't know who qualifies for a letter, necessarily," Manning said. "It's probably just somebody I played against for a long time. I don't have to know you real well.

If there is one common entry on the inventory list of every small-business owner, it is an unlimited supply of problems. Some are small and merely annoying; others loom large and threaten the existence of the business. John Lynch, a 38-year-old jewelry designer, knows all about the perils of small business and how seemingly smart decisions can lead to disaster. Lynch recently bought an established, but ailing, retail jewelry store in Brea after successfully operating his custom design shop for 9 years.

Denver Bronco safety John Lynch was fined $75,000 by the NFL on Tuesday for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Indianapolis Colt fullback Dallas Clark on Sunday. A league spokesman said Lynch, a 12-year veteran with a reputation as a hard hitter, received the harsh penalty because this was his fourth fine for unnecessary roughness since 2001.

The Denver safety's emotional return to Tampa Bay was a success Sunday, with the Broncos beating the Buccaneers, 16-13, despite a potentially game-turning gentlemanly mistake by Lynch, a five-time Pro Bowl selection with a reputation for delivering bone-jarring hits.

Denver's John Lynch has the distinction of being the first player to draw a fine from the NFL this season. The league sent the safety a letter Wednesday demanding $7,500 for a hit on Kansas City receiver Dante Hall in Denver's 34-24 victory Sunday night. Lynch plans to appeal. Hall, who was not hurt, joked that the fine should have been $25,000 "for my pain and suffering." * Green Bay's Mike McKenzie ended his holdout and returned to the team.

Five-time Pro Bowl safety John Lynch won't return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Although the Buccaneers had not officially released him, Lynch said Thursday he was given permission to talk to other teams after General Manager Bruce Allen turned down his request to restructure a contract that would have paid him $4.1 million in 2004 and $5 million in 2005. Lynch, 32, said the Buccaneers never made him an offer and that Allen made it clear "it wasn't an option" to return.
