The agency has proposed $298.2 million in spending for 2018, up modestly from its restated 2017 budget.The budget briefing will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern today.During her testimony, Zook plans to thank the NCUA for its leadership and transparent budget process. However, she notes that Money One FCU and many other credit unions are concerned about the agency’s inclination to spend more of credit unions’ monies that could be used to better serve their members.The agency has proposed an even larger budget for 2019 than 2018 – $302.8 million in spending – which amounts to a near-doubling of the NCUA’s budget in a decade, despite a consolidating industry.center_img NCUA headquarterslast_img read more

first_img“Some were injured. Some died. Mostly, it was long ago when American jocks of stature left cheering stadiums for far nastier games in World War II and Korea.”Mizell continues on, saying, “Big leaguers weren’t wealthy in 1941, when Pearl Harbor created patriotic itch. There was a military draft where first-rounders weren’t celebrated; they were prepared for European trenches or fighting in the Pacific. Ted Williams was joined by a landslide including Bob Feller, Enos Slaughter, Warren Spahn, Hoyt Wilhelm, Dizzy Dean, Gil Hodges, Yogi Berra and Larry Doby, the latter a man who wasn’t yet allowed in the majors because he was Black.However, I am disturbed by the current social and economic conditions in and out of the world of sports. Almost a decade ago I talked with the great Frank Robinson, the only player to win baseball’s MVP award in both the American and National Leagues. Robinson was also the first African-American big league manager.When I asked him about the late Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in MLB and how it affected society as a whole, Robinson said, “What happens in sports generally reflects what is currently happening in society.” He also pointed out that “the visibility of Jackie Robinson allowed White America and corporate America to become more comfortable with the presence of African-American men.”Even the slice of pie of America’s first great game, MLB is putting up grave numbers in regards to the participation of Black athletes. The Huffington Post published an article in April confirming the dwindling number of Blacks entering baseball. The article says,“MLB received an A for race and a B for gender hiring in the annual study released by the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports. Among major leaguers, though, the number of African-American players dropped from 10.2 percent to 9 percent last season (2009). The sport had made a small stride since reaching a low of 8.2 percent in 2007, but the latest data indicates a steady rise among African-American players might be years away.“I think it’s a reflection now of the long-standing fact that African-American youths are playing basketball and football more than baseball,” institute director Richard Lapchick said. “It’s ironic only because the role of people of color running baseball is dramatically increasing.” Boys and girls, allow me to ask you this question. Why is it because the management fellows in the front office make far less loot than the boys on the field?Recently, I discussed with you the fact that playing baseball presented less “academic” obstacles for young Americans, especially Black Americans because MLB does not worry so much about G.P.A averages or SAT scores. Major league baseball is more concerned and rightly so about, E.R.A(s), batting averages and stolen base percentages. We have to saturate the mental sponges of young Black males, enlightening them to the fact that they should not rule out any options for success whether it be athletic or academic. There are private and intimate Memorial Day celebrations every day in urban America. Just look at the crime stopper reward billboards and the RIP T-shirts that adorn the mourning family members and friends of mostly young victims of violence.Dating from the times of the our Civil War, Black Americans have had to fight just for the opportunity to fight. When our predecessors were granted the opportunity to stand up for their country, they were not allowed to “stand with” and fight beside their countrymen. Larry Doby fought for America but his biggest fight was not with Adolf Hitler on the battlefields of Europe. Doby had succeeded in winning the game of survival between life and death. He now had to fight and win the war for the pursuit of liberty and happiness at home.Before, during and after every Memorial Day we must all take a vow to make the quality of life better for all living Americans and as the holy Bible says, “Let the dead bury the dead.”(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: [email protected] or 412.583.6741.) Forty-eight hours ago America celebrated Memorial Day. Being a Vietnam-era veteran I will always be fully cognizant of the sacrifices and blood that American men and women have shed and will shed on battlefields across the globe. In an article written in June, 2004 by Robert Mizell titled “Athletes’ contributions to war diminishing,” published by the St. Petersburg Times, Mizell says, “Far from their fields of play, in venues that could be vulgar, where there were no home runs, touchdowns or other goals of sport, some of our most notable athletes earned a long, caring D-Day ovation.last_img read more

first_img­­­­­­By Mary Ann BourbeauWEST LONG BRANCH – Monmouth University will now be the official archival repository for Bruce Springsteen’s written works, photographs, periodicals and artifacts.The creation of the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music, a collaborative partnership between the rocker and the university, was announced on Jan. 10 during “A Conversation with Bruce Springsteen,” held at the university’s Pollak Theatre.“Monmouth University is excited by the opportunity to grow our relationship with Bruce Springsteen,” said Monmouth University President Paul R. Brown. “The establishment of the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music celebrates and reinforces the Jersey Shore’s legacy in the history of American music while providing a truly transformative experience for our students.”Springsteen said he was honored yet humbled that this new center was being formed to honor his respected body of work.The new collaboration builds on a relationship the university has with the The Boss.The Bruce Springsteen Special Collection at Monmouth University opened on campus in 2011. It is a research facility that contains 35,000 items from nearly 47 countries, covering every stage of Springsteen’s career – books, magazines, fanzines, newspaper articles, comic books, tour books, academic journals and papers. The new center will build on that, promoting the legacy of Springsteen and his role in American music while celebrating other icons, including Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams and Frank Sinatra.“We are excited about the opportunities this creates for our students and the community,” said Joe Rapolla, chair of the Music and Theatre Department and director of the Music Industry Program at the university. “Bruce has a long history at Monmouth, and we look forward to adhering to his high standards of excellence as we begin this new venture.”After the announcement was made, the conversation with Springsteen began, moderated by Robert Santelli, a former music professor at Monmouth University. Santelli currently serves as executive director of the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. The two spent time talking about Springsteen’s early history in the Long Branch area, where he played dozens of concerts, nine of them on the Monmouth College campus. Many were with his early bands – the Castiles, Earth, Steel Mill and Dr. Zoom & the Sonic Boom.“I remember playing on the great lawn out back in my shirtless days,” he said. “We played here in the gym. We had a pretty good local audience. Those were big shows for us in those days. We pulled in a couple of thousand people. At a buck a head, you could live for a long time on that.”Springsteen spoke of the small house he lived in on West End Court, where he wrote most of his breakthrough album, “Born to Run.” He also reminisced about playing at the Upstage Club, a small venue above a beauty salon in Asbury Park, and about the up-and-coming bands he saw in Convention Hall, such as The Who, when they opened for Herman’s Hermits.“The scene was pretty rich with musicians,” he said. “There were a lot of venues for commercial acts and Top 40 bands. But if you played original music, it was tough to find a place to play. It was difficult to find a paying job.”Santelli noted that back in those days, the Jersey Shore didn’t have the national reputation for its music scene that it has today.“It had the reputation of a place you want to get out of,” Santelli said.Springsteen noted that he read in the newspaper the day before that New Jersey leads the nation with the highest number of residents exiting the state for elsewhere.“I made my living writing about moving away,” he said. “Maybe there was something to that.”He spoke of his early creative process, when he was greatly influenced by the songs of Bob Dylan and Tim Buckley.“I decided I was going to be a poet even though I don’t read poetry,” he said. “I had a rhyming dictionary and I was going with it 100 percent. The entire ‘Blinded by the Light’ came from that dictionary.”Once “Born to Run” was released, Springsteen became such a success that in October 1975, he was famously on the cover of Time and Newsweek at the same time.“It was a big deal,” Springsteen said. “For the young people in the audience, Time and Newsweek were magazines. I’ve actually outlived them.”After the 90-minute conversation ended, Springsteen answered some questions from the audience in the 700-seat auditorium. One man wanted to know why Springsteen decided to play the Super Bowl half-time show.“They were asking me to do it for about 10 years but it seemed a little on the cheesy side, like the music was incidental,” he said.As the years went on, he became more impressed with the production of the shows and decided to take on the challenge.“It was the most terrifying and thrilling 12 minutes of my work life,” he said.last_img read more

first_imgDespite being knocked out in the first round of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League playoffs — in five games no less, meaning the squad hosted only two of the lucrative post season contests — the Nelson Leafs hockey franchise finished the campaign on solid financial footing according to treasurer Gord Davis.“I’m happy with how the season went overall,” Davis told The Nelson Daily.“We had a $17,000 improvement in overall revenue over (2010-11) and that’s after we paid out $9,000 in scholarships to players.”Figures were released during the Leafs AGM last month.It cost Leaf board of directors $235,700 to run the team for the recent season.Hockey revenues, including admission, advertising and beer sales, totaled $179,700.Davis said that was an increase of $27,000 due to an increase in advertising revenue, which includes board ads in the arena and program advertising.There was also an increase in fans attending games during the regular season.To novice mathematicians that’s a deficit of $56,000.However, thanks to the Leaf recycling depot, the hockey team finishes the fiscal year in the black. “It’s not uncommon for a junior hockey team like ours to have other sources of revenue to run the team and we’re just lucky to have the (recycling) center, which this year generated $64,000 for us,” Davis explained.The meeting attracted only a few people.The board remains intact from last season.Back to lead the Good Leaf Ship is president Russell Stocks.Joining Davis and Stocks is vice-president Chuck Brind’Amour, Lauretta Wilson as beverage services director, Grant Arcuri, in charge of education and Lori Stocks and Brenda Nystrom.Back for his second season behind the bench is skipper Frank Maida.Maida was thrust into the position late in last year’s recruting season after then coach Chris Shaw took an assistant coaching job in the BCHL with the Vernon Vipers.Shaw has since been released by the Interior Division squad.Now that the Leafs have completed internal business, the board focuses on the league as the KIJHL AGM this weekend in Golden.Friday, team reps meet to begin setting the regular season schedule for the 2012-13 season.Saturday and Sunday governors discuss league business, setting the course for the upcoming campaign and deciding the rep for the Cyclone Taylor Cup, hosted on Vancouver Island in April 11-14 of 2013 in Comox by the Glacier Kings.OFF-ICE NEWS: Gord Davis said the Leaf recycling depot, which for years had been the place to drop off beverage containers, now accepts paint and other hazzardous products.

first_imgThe Australian Men’s Open team impressed on day one of the 2016 Trans Tasman Series, with a six touchdown win over New Zealand, 13-7. Both teams started strongly, with Scott Buckley and Reihana Soutar-Finch trading touchdowns in the opening exchanges to lock the game up at 1-all early. Rob Nakhla scored soon after for Australia, before Soutar-Finch hit back for his second touchdown of the game.Australia then went to another level, scoring four touchdowns in five minutes, with touchdowns to Buckley, Matt Prowse, Pete Norman and Lachlan Pierce, to take a 6-2 lead New Zealand hit back soon after through Ngarohi Black, and when Soutar-Finch scored his third touchdown of the half the home side were back within two touchdowns. The Australians went to the half-time break with a two touchdown lead, 6-4. Whatever Australian coach Tony Trad said to the team at half-time must have worked, with his side scoring five of the next six touchdowns to stamp their authority on the game. Captain Nick Good scored in the second minute, before Black scored his second of the match in the next set for the Kiwis.  Nakhla had his second not long after, before Daniel Barton, Ben Moylan and Shaun Francis scored to give Australia a handy 11-6 lead. New Zealand’s Connah Pamatatau was next to score, while Jordan Marshall-King replied one minute later to score his first Men’s Open touchdown against New Zealand. Shanan Tomuri put the Kiwis within five touchdowns, before Buckley continued his strong performance, scoring his hat trick with just minutes remaining. Australia proved too strong on day one with a 13-7 win and will be hopeful of a series win tomorrow when they play at 3.30pm (NZST). The victory gave the Australians three wins on day one following the Mixed and Women’s wins earlier in the day.FINAL SCORE: Australia 13 (Buckley 3, Nakhla 2, Prowse, Norman, Pierce, Good, Barton, Moylan, Francis, Marshall-King) defeated New Zealand 7 (Soutar-Finch 3, Black 2, Pamatatau, Tomuri).

We have 28 players and it’s impossible to use all of them.

first_imgKentucky male cheerleader appears to obstruct Ocatvius Ellis.Kentucky didn’t have a ton of trouble with Cincinnati Saturday afternoon, as the Wildcats cruised to a 12-point victory to become the first 36-0 team in history. But there was a bit of a controversial moment early in the second half, when a male cheerleader for the school appeared to impede Bearcats star Octavius Ellis from returning to the court. The cheerleader appears to hold onto Ellis as he tries to make his way back to the floor. Judge for yourself. No, it didn’t realistically matter when it comes to the outcome of the game.
