          5-12-1945: Misteri Hilangnya Armada Penerbangan 19 di Segitiga Bermuda      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Miami - Kecelakaan pesawat yang terjadi pada Rabu 5 Desember 1945 menjadi salah satu misteri terbesar dalam dunia penerbangan. Insiden itu melibatkan mitos Segitiga Bermuda yang terkenal horor.

Segitiga Bermuda bukan nama resmi. Julukan itu merujuk pada wilayah di dalam garis imajiner yang menghubungkan Kepulauan Bermuda, Puerto Rico, dan Fort Lauderdale. Di sana lah sejumlah kapal dan pesawat hilang secara misterius.

Pada hari kejadian, skuadron yang terdiri atas lima pesawat pembom torpedo Angkatan Laut, beserta 14 awaknya, hilang tanpa jejak. Tak hanya jasad para penerbang, serpihan pesawat tak pernah ditemukan.

Awalnya, saat jarum jam menunjuk pukul 14.10 waktu setempat, di bawah komando Letnan Charles Taylor, lima jet pengebom torpedo TBM Avenger bermesin tunggal keluar dari pangkalan udara Fort Lauderdale.

Para penerbang ditugaskan melaksanakan misi rutin, termasuk berlatih menjatuhkan bom dan latihan navigasi.

Meski Perang Dunia II sudah berhenti tiga bulan sebelumnya, militer berketetapan untuk terus waspada dan berlatih.

Sekitar 90 menit setelah lepas landas, Letnan Taylor lewat radio melaporkan, tim tersesat dan kompas tidak berfungsi. "Kami tak tahu, ini di mana," kata dia, seperti dikutip dari Sun Sentinel.

Selama dua jam kemudian, Letnan Taylor mengarahkan pesawat, yang ia kira menuju Miami, namun nyatanya justru mengarah ke Samudera Atlantik.

Pangkalan angkatan laut di Miami sempat mendapatkan sinyal samar-samar dari skuadron tersebut di sekitar 150 mil dari lepas pantai New Smyrna Beach.

Panggilan terakhir yang dilakukan skuadron terjadi pada pukul 19.27. Setelah itu lenyap.

Setelah armada dinyatakan hilang, tim penyelamat pun diberangkatkan. Pesawat amfibi berbadan besar dengan mesin ganda dikirim dari pangkalan Banana River di Central Florida. Namun, pesawat itu justru jatuh ke laut ganas. Sebanyak 13 orang penumpangnya tewas seketika.

Hari berikutnya, salah satu pencarian kecelakaan terbesar dalam sejarah dilakukan. Tim SAR menyisir area seluas 200.000 mil persegi. Letnan David White, salah dalam tim pencari menceritakan, pesawat dan kapal pencari mencari apapun yang mungkin tersisa, jaket pelampung atau serpihan pesawat.

Namun, "Tak ada tanda-tanda serpihan," kata White. "Ini luar biasa."

Saat mencari keesokan paginya, diduga puing-puing mungkin sampai di lepas pantai Georgia. Pesawat TBM Avengers, menurut White, kemungkinan pecah pada saat berusaha mendarat di laut .

Sejumlah sejarawan dan investigator kelautan menduga skuadron nahas itu mengalami disorientasi di tengah cuaca buruk dan kegelapan malam. Mereka diyakini kehabisan bahan-bahan dan mengalami kecelakaan di lautan timur Daytona Beach.

Tak hanya kecelakaan yang melibatkan Segitiga Bermuda yang terjadi apda tanggal 5 Desember. Sejumlah peristiwa bersejarah terjadi pada hari ini.

Pada 5 Desember 1957, Presiden Sukarno memerintahkan warga negara Belanda angkat kaki dari tanah air.

Pada tanggal yang sama tahun 2013, Nelson Mandela meninggal dunia. Ia menjadi pria berkulit hitam pertama yang menjadi presiden Afrika Selatan. Napas penghabisan ia embuskan pada usia 95 tahun, akibat infeksi paru-paru.

Lahirnya Mitos Segitiga Bermuda

Desas-desus keangkeran Segitiga Bermuda sudah lama beredar. Christopher Columbus, di masa awal penjelajahannya ke Dunia Baru pada 1492, adalah yang pertama mencatat soal anomali di sekitar segitiga imajiner itu.

Saat kapal-kapal armadanya, "Nina", "Pinta", dan "Santa Maria" melintas Laut Sargasso, penjelajah Italia itu mengaku kompasnya menjadi tak menentu. Ia juga melihat cahaya aneh di cakrawala pada 11 Oktober 1492, yang hingga kini belum bisa dijelaskan.

Namun, asal-usul legenda Segitiga Bermuda bisa dilacak sejak 16 September 1950, saat wartawan kantor berita Associated Press, E. V. W. Jones mencatat apa yang ia deskripsikan sebagai serangkaian kejadian "misterius" hilangnya sejumlah kapal dan pesawat antara perairan Florida dan Bermuda di akhir tahun 1940-an.

Ia menyebut sejumlah kejadian, dari hilangnya Penerbangan 19 Angkatan Laut AS, misi latihan 5 bomber torpedo TBM Avenger yang terbang dari Florida pada 5 Desember 1945, juga hilangnya pesawat komersial "Star Tiger" pada 30 Januari 1948 dalam penerbangan dari Azores ke Bermuda. Tak ketinggalan "Star Ariel"yang raib 17 Januari 1949 dalam penerbangan dari Bermuda ke Kingston, Jamaica.

"'Laut iblis' telah menjebak nasib 135 orang yang terbang atau berlayar di Atlantik dalam beberapa tahun belakangan," tulis Jones seperti dimuat Bernews.com. "Manusia modern dengan keajaiban teknologi tak menemukan kata kunci untuk menjelaskan apa yang sebenarnya terjadi pada mereka yang lenyap, tanpa jejak bersama kapal atau pesawatnya."

Dua tahun kemudian giliran artikel di majalah Fate muncul. Penulisnya, George X Sand menceritakan sejumlah insiden misterius hilangnya sejumlah kapal di wilayah tersebut. Penulis, M. K. Jessup juga menyajikan kisah serupa dalam artikel "The Case for The UFO", dirilis tahun 1955 -- yang mengarahkan keterlibatan alien.

Kisah serupa kembali diulang Donald E. Keyhoe dalam "The Flying Saucer Conspiracy" [1955), juga Frank Edwards dalam tulisannya, "Stranger Than Science" [1959].

Hingga akhirnya muncullah Vincent H. Gaddis yang memperkenalkan istilah "Segitiga Bermuda" dalam artikel yang terbit Februari 1964 di Majalah "Argosy", yang berjudul "The Deadly Bermuda Triangle" -- Segitiga Bermuda yang mematikan.

"Selama dua dekade terakhir, laut misterius di halaman belakang kita telah merenggut hampir 1.000 nyawa," tulis Gaddis. "Angkatan Laut AS, Angkatan Udara dan penyelidik Penjaga mengakui bahwa mereka bingung. Beberapa petunjuk yang ada hanya menambah kemisteriusannya."

Disusul tulisan Ivan T. Sanderson, "Invisible Residents" [1970] yang menyebut spekulasi bahwa Segitiga Bermuda adalah bukti adanya peradaban bawah laut yang cerdas dan berteknologi tinggi yang bertanggung jawab atas berbagai fenomena misterius. Makin banyak buku soal itu yang ditulis, dipakai inspirasi sejumlah film. Spekulasi pun makin liar.

Tulisan yang relatif masuk akal baru terbut pada 1975 oleh Larry Kusche, pustakawan Arizona State University. Ia membongkar mitos yang ia sebut sebagai "misteri yang diproduksi" dalam buku "The Bermuda Triangle Mystery-Solved".

Ia menggali bukti arsip seperti rekaman data cuaca, laporan resmi penyelidik, laporan media masa, dan dokumen lain -- fakta yang kerap diabaikan oleh para penulis sebelumnya.

Fakta Ilmiah

'Misteri' Segitiga Bermuda' sekian lama menyandera imaji manusia, bahkan hingga saat ini. Sejumlah orang mencari dan mempertanyakannya ke sumber yang tepat dan terpercaya. Salah satunya, Badan Antariksa Amerika Serikat (NASA).

Seperti dimuat dalam situsnya, NASA membantah spekulasi ada kaitan Segitiga Bermuda dan lubang hitam 'black holes'.

"Tidak ada lubang hitam di Segitiga Bermuda. Pada kenyataannya, bahkan tak ada yang namanya Segitiga Bermuda. Banyaknya kasus kehilangan di wilayah itu konsisten dengan yang terjadi wilayah lainnya," demikian jelas Ilmuwan NASA, Dr Eric Christian

Astrobiologis dan ilmuwan senior NASA, David Morrison juga meminta orang-orang penasaran untuk menkaji secara nyata dan fakta. "Bukan fantasi."

Lembaga pemerintah Amerika Serikat, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) yang mengurus persoalan lingkungan, di antaranya badai dan tsunami, juga pernah menjelaskan tentang Segitiga Bermuda.

Sekaligus membantah sejumlah spekulasi yang berseliweran. "Seperti mahluk ekstraterresterial yang menculik manusia untuk dijadikan kelinci percobaan, pengaruh Atlantis Yang Hilang, pusaran yang menyedot benda ke dimensi lain, dan ide-ide lain yang tak kalah anehnya." Termasuk, soal rumah iblis atau keberadaan piramida di sana.

NOAA menyebut, beberapa dugaan didasarkan pada sains, meski tanpa didasari bukti. Namun yang jelas, "Angkatan Laut AS (US Navy) dan penjaga pantai (US Coast Guard) berpendapat bahwa tidak ada penjelasan supranatural untuk berbagai bencana di laut. Pengalaman mereka menunjukkan, kombinasi dari alam dan kesalahan manusia, mengalahkan penjelasan fiksi ilmiah paling terpercaya sekali pun."

Lembaga itu menambahkan, laut sejatinya selalu menjadi tempat misterius untuk manusia. Saat cuaca buruk terjadi dan adanya kesalahan manusia, ia bisa menjadi tempat yang sangat mematikan. Ini adalah kenyataan yang terjadi di seluruh dunia.

"Tak ada bukti bahwa kehilangan misterius terjadi dengan frekuensi lebih besar di Segitiga Bermuda dibanding lokasi lain di lautan dunia," NOAA menyimpulkan


          Don’t Trust the Process      Cache   Translate Page      

Four hundred and eighteen days after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, 415 days after Bruce Arena’s resignation from the position, the U.S. men’s national team finally has a new permanent head coach: Columbus Crew manager and former U.S. national team defender Gregg Berhalter.

Berhalter’s first order of business will be stopping the wheels that have been spinning idly since the loss to Trinidad and Tobago that cost the team its qualification. The one squint-real-hard-and-you-might-see-it-if-you’re-the-insufferable-kind-of-optimist silver lining to failing to qualify was that the U.S. would have a 10-month head start on preparing for the 2022 tournament. Since the World Cup in Qatar doesn’t start until November, a promising crop of young talent would have a five-year cycle to grow into the new coach’s system.

That time is now lost. Spain hired its new coach eight days after being eliminated from the World Cup. Egypt and Tunisia, both knocked out by the end of June, made their hires by Aug. 1. (Tunisia has already fired Faouzi Benzarti, even though he won all three of his games in charge and led them to qualification at the 2019 African Cup of Nations.) Meanwhile, the U.S. has waited, first for the election of the new U.S. Soccer president, Carlos Cordeiro, in February; then for the hiring of the new men’s team general manager, Earnie Stewart, in June; then, finally, for the end of the Crew’s MLS season earlier this month. Four hundred and eighteen days. The only thing more depressing than the morass the men’s program found itself in post-Trinidad is how reluctant U.S. Soccer has seemed to pull itself out.

The nets, from what we know of the hiring process, do not appear to have been cast far and wide. New York Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch, perhaps the co-favorite along with Berhalter, took himself out of consideration by moving to RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga as an assistant. Other mooted possibilities, such as Peter Vermes of Sporting Kansas City, said they didn’t get further than preliminary talks. FC Dallas coach Óscar Pareja, who just took a job with Mexico’s Club Tijuana, told reporters in late September that he hadn’t gotten an interview. (He apparently did speak to U.S. Soccer sometime after that, according to Yahoo’s Doug McIntyre.)

Other foreign candidates such as former Mexico manager Juan Carlos Osorio and Atlanta United manager Tata Martino, formerly of Argentina and Barcelona, said they weren’t even contacted, the latter possibly because of an asinine requirement that the new manager speak English fluently. Earlier this month, Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl reported that former Spain and Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui had reached out to U.S. Soccer via an intermediary to express interest in the job, only to be told it was too close to the end of the process to bring in a new candidate.

Four hundred and eighteen days is a lot of time to spend not interviewing people. U.S. Soccer has yet to convince anyone that Berhalter didn’t have the job all along. This is a slight problem only because his brother, Jay Berhalter, already works high up in U.S. Soccer as the chief commercial and strategy officer, overseeing broadcast and corporate partnerships and event operations. In theory, hiring a new national team coach is well outside Jay’s purview, but the process has not exactly been a model of openness and transparency, and at the very least Gregg’s smooth path into the country’s most prominent job is bad optics. Some U.S. Soccer fans have already spent much of the past decade carelessly crying nepotism. You would think the federation might have an interest in trying to stave that off this go-around.

Awkward family ties or no, Berhalter is a heartening if not exhilarating hire for a program that really needs to get this one right. He comes to the job with—and almost certainly got the job because of—a clearly defined style of play that he’s instituted in Columbus over the past five years, one based on stretching the defense laterally then quickly changing the point of attack to hit the gaps that have been created. The system has coaxed career years out of three different center forwards: Kei Kamara in 2015, Ola Kamara in 2017, and Gyasi Zardes in 2018. Zardes was playing right back for the Los Angeles Galaxy a year ago, and this year he finished tied for fourth-most goals in the league.

The Crew has had up and down years both defensively and offensively since Berhalter took over before the 2014 season. This year it scored the second-fewest goals in the league, though it balanced that out with an organized defense that limited opponents’ transition opportunities. Columbus hasn’t won a trophy during Berhalter’s tenure, though it did finish as MLS Cup runner-up in 2015 and made the playoffs in four of his five years despite a salary budget that’s in the league’s bottom third.

After spending the better part of a decade wandering the tactical wilderness with only Jürgen Klinsmann’s motivational speaking and Bruce Arena’s let-the-old-guys-figure-it-out strategy as guides, literally any coherent soccering system seems like an upgrade for the U.S. Even 2018, the team’s inadvertent gap year free from the responsibilities of a major tournament or qualifying, has been spent toiling in interim head coach Dave Sarachan’s off-the-rack 4-1-4-1, which sacrificed creativity and attacking intent in favor of stability and numbers behind the ball. Same as it ever was, though in Sarachan’s defense he has missed his key source of both creativity and attacking intent for much of the year. Christian Pulisic suited up for the U.S. just three times in 2018 after being given the summer off to rest and picking up small injuries during the first two of the fall international windows.

Without a permanent head coach or the team’s best player, U.S. Soccer leaned hard into the mantra of generational change to gin up interest in its 2018 games. Sarachan trotted out some incredibly young lineups this year, giving 27 total caps to 20-and-under players Tim Weah, Josh Sargent, Weston McKennie, and Tyler Adams, then fed those lineups to the likes of France, Brazil and Colombia, where they’ve won one of their past eight. No matter. “The Future is US,” according to U.S. Soccer’s new, maddeningly vague marketing campaign. What future? When?

It’s the federation’s own “Trust the Process,” a promise that while things may have gotten bad, they are being handled by someone, somewhere. But U.S. Soccer, which drew out the program’s most important decision for 418 days and still managed to bungle its execution, has done little to prove it deserves that trust. (On the men’s side, at least. The U.S. women are rampaging through the present like a T-1000, going undefeated in 2018 ahead of their World Cup next summer.)

Instead the federation is passing the responsibility to make good on that promise—and the promise of its talented young players—on to Berhalter. U.S. Soccer is trusting that his structure will help the team succeed at the international level, and that his results will help fans forget what a shambles the hiring process ended up being.


          Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer to retire after Rose Bowl      Cache   Translate Page      

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer abruptly announced his retirement Tuesday, citing health reasons and a difficult year that included a three-game suspension over his handling of domestic violence allegations against a now-fired assistant coach. He will step down after the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1.

Meyer is leaving at the top of his career after three national championships and seven years at the Big Ten school, where he has an 82-9 record. The 54-year-old Meyer has an arachnoid cyst in his brain that causes severe headaches, and had shown obvious effects of being in pain on the sideline this season.

At a packed news conference, Meyer explained that the headaches became severe last season during Ohio State's game at Penn State and have become a persistent problem this season. But he didn't blame only his health for stepping away. Meyer said he believed he could no longer coach the way he has always coached, from the early days at Bowling Green to Utah, Florida and finally with the Buckeyes.

"The style of coaching I've done for 33 years is very intense, very demanding. I tried to delegate more and CEO more and the product started to feel ...," he said, not finishing his thought. "I didn't feel I was doing right by our players and by Gene (Smith, the athletic director)."

Meyer said leaving would have been more difficult if the program wasn't healthy. The Buckeyes are 12-1 after winning the Big Ten and, and Meyer said he felt good that assistant coach Ryan Day will take over as the 25th coach of the storied program where Meyer won a national title in 2014 after two at Florida (2006, 2008).

"You want to hand it off to someone who could make it stronger," Meyer said.

It was Day who led the Buckeyes when Meyer was suspended for three games to start this season over his role in the handling of assistant coach Zach Smith, who was accused by his ex-wife of domestic abuse.

Meyer said he knew about the allegations against Smith — grandson of former Ohio State coach Earle Bruce — but wasn't sure they were true and kept Smith on staff because no criminal charges were filed. The university cited that lapse in suspending Meyer after an investigation.

A report issued by an investigative committee left a lasting stain, detailing behavior by Meyer that could have taken down a coach of lesser stature. The investigation showed he tolerated bad behavior for years from Smith, including domestic-violence accusations, drug addiction, lies and other acts that directly clash with the values Meyer touts publicly.

Meyer acknowledged the investigation was among the reasons for his decision: "The decision was the result of cumulative events."

Meyer was asked if the suspension will affect his legacy.

"I'm sure it will... I can lie to you and say it is not important to me," he said.

The announcement came as the Buckeyes begin preparations for the bowl game against Washington and less than three weeks before the early signing period, giving recruits time to change their minds. Meyer said his decision had to come before the Dec. 19 signing day.

Former players were full of praise for Meyer.

"Besides my parents, you were one of the most influential people to touch my life and I'm appreciative of that," former Buckeyes linebacker Joshua Perry wrote on Twitter.

The Buckeyes' strong finish this season belied on-the-field problems that made for a stressful season for Meyer and his staff. He lost star defensive end Nick Bosa to an early season-ending injury, and the defense never fully recovered.

The team alternated expected blowout wins with puzzling play that included a pair of one-point wins (Penn State, Maryland) and a closer-than-expected win over a struggling Nebraska team. A startling blowout loss at unranked Purdue on Oct. 20 pushed Ohio State to the fringe of the national championship chase and prompted questions about Meyer's future and he was forced to address speculation that he would step down at the end of the season.

"I plan on coaching," he said on Oct. 29. Asked if he would definitely return to Ohio State next year, he answered, "Yes."

Ohio State followed that with five straight wins, including a rout of archrival Michigan that gave the Buckeyes another division title and then pulled away for an easy win over Northwestern in the Big Ten Championship.

The success was nothing new for Meyer, who was a standout coach at Utah before he left for Florida in 2005 and rocketed to the top of the college football coaching ranks, a peer of Alabama coach Nick Saban in terms of respect and ability. After stepping down at Florida due to stress-related health concerns, he took the Ohio State job before the 2012 season after Jim Tressel was forced out for lying to the NCAA amid a memorabilia-for-tattoos scandal.

It appeared to be a dream job for the Toledo native. His contract was extended in April by two years through 2022, increasing Meyer's salary to $7.6 million in 2018 with annual 6 percent raises. Meyer has about $38 million left on his contract.

Ohio State will now turn to Day, a second-year Ohio State assistant who had never before been a head coach before he stepped in for Meyer this season.


          Ryan Day to make $4.5 million per year on 5-year contract as Ohio State's head coach      Cache   Translate Page      

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State University has announced offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day will be the football program’s 25th head coach.

The announcement came Tuesday afternoon when head coach Urban Meyer announced he would be retiring after the Rose Bowl on January 1.

Day will have a five-year contract that will pay him $4.5 million annually. He will start his head coaching duties on January 2.

Day is in his second season with the Buckeyes and served as the interim head coach for the first three games of the 2018 season while Meyer served a suspension. The team went 3-0.

The New Hampshire native played quarterback at the University of New Hampshire. UCLA head coach Chip Kelly was Day’s offensive coordinator during his collegiate career.

Day began his coaching career in 2002 as the tight ends coach at his alma mater. In 2005, he coached as a graduate assistant under Meyer at the University of Florida.

Additionally, Day coached at Boston College and Temple.

In 2015, he was hired by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015 to be the quarterbacks coach and held the same position with the San Francisco 49ers in 2016.


          Urban Meyer acknowledges suspension could be a part of his legacy      Cache   Translate Page      

COLUMBUS – Calling the events of this summer “difficult” and “disappointing,” Urban Meyer acknowledged that his three-game suspension earlier this year could impact his legacy.

“I'm sure it will it. I haven't really thought that through. It was a disappointing time obviously. But I think today, this is about celebrating a new football coach. This is about a very strong program and a group of players that just won back-to-back championships. The legacy you can only control so much. I can lie to you and say that's not important to me. Any human, that's important to you. People have their opinions… and just do the best to do things the right way, ” Meyer told reporters during a Tuesday afternoon news conference.

He was responding to a series of questions about his legacy and how the events of this summer may have swayed his decision to walk away from a successful Ohio State Buckeyes football program.

Meyer told reporters it was a “cumulative” series of events – including his health (a brain cyst has caused Meyer repeated and painful headaches), the current strength of the football program and this summer’s scandal that Meyer said all played a role in his decision to step away.

Asked directly if the suspension was one of those factors in his decision, he said: “Sure.”

Both Meyer and athletic director Gene Smith were suspended earlier this season for their handling of a domestic abuse allegations involving now-former wide receivers coach Zach Smith, who was fired by Meyer and OSU this summer.

Both Gene Smith and Meyer learned of a 2015 domestic dispute call to Powell Police involving Zach Smith and his ex-wife Courtney. Courtney alleged that she had been abused but no charges were filed. Powell’s police chief has previously told 10 Investigates that they did not think they could win the case in court.

An investigation conducted by a New York law firm hired by the university found that while Meyer and Gene Smith “neither condoned or covered up the alleged a domestic abuse by Zach Smith, they failed to take sufficient management action relating to Zach Smith’s misconduct…”

Specifically, the law firm of Debevoise & Plimpton found that both Gene Smith and Urban Meyer failed to adhere to the precise requirements of their contracts when they “concluded that they needed to await a law enforcement determination to file charges before they reported the otherwise disputed claims of spousal abuse against Zach Smith.”

Zach Smith was fired by the Meyer and OSU in July after Meyer learned of a protection order that had been filed against Zach by his ex-wife Courtney Smith. Zach Smith was also charged with trespassing in May of this year. Smith has since resolved the matters in court, pleading to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct in October. He did not reply to a message seeking comment Tuesday. Neither did Courtney Smith or her representatives.

Meyer caught criticism this summer for initially telling reporters that he lacked specific knowledge about the 2015 incident. In a statement, Meyer later said he misspoke.

There were also questions raised by investigators who learned that prior to his suspension that Meyer had a conversation with a football operations person about how to adjust settings on his cell phone to delete text messages older than one year. Investigators did not find text messages on Meyer’s phone older than one year.

10 Investigates is also still waiting on a number of public records requests to be fulfilled by the university. It’s been four months since 10 Investigates made those requests. A university spokesman says they’re working on them.

          Judge refuses to dismiss lawsuit over Columbus Crew SC move      Cache   Translate Page      

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio judge isn't dismissing a lawsuit seeking to keep the Columbus Crew soccer team in Columbus.

The Columbus Dispatch reports a judge on Monday denied the team's and Major League Soccer's request to dismiss the suit brought by the city of Columbus and the state of Ohio.

The lawsuit argues a Crew proposal to relocate to Austin, Texas, didn't comply with state law saying Ohio sports teams using publicly supported facilities must give six months' notice and allow cities or residents a chance to buy the team.

Attorneys for the team and MLS argue Crew SC doesn't receive public financial assistance and the law interferes with the right to conduct business in interstate commerce.

The team's owner had no comment on Monday's decision. An MLS statement called it disappointing.


          New program helps vet businesses that support charitable causes      Cache   Translate Page      

FRANKLINTON - Most customers you talk to at the Roosevelt Coffeehouse near downtown Columbus will tell you it is more than the coffee that draws them to the shop. The cafe was voted the top coffee house in the city last year. Repeat customers say that how their money is spent is a motivating factor for their dedication to the shop.

A prominently-posted sign in the shop reads: "Profits from our roaster support initiatives that fight hunger, unclean water, and human trafficking. We exist to end these injustices, so we roast our coffee with care— for the farmer, for the quality, and for the people in need that our coffee impacts. By standing with us, you help to bring communities around the world closer to the resources that they need to live."

Now, there is another sign posted. A new pilot program is giving out social enterprise seals. The program is meant to help consumers know companies claiming to give to social causes, live up to their promises.

“Authenticity is so important to us,” said the founder of Roosevelt Coffeehouse Kenny Sipes. “We know from our end that we are accomplishing what we set out to do, but to have that work validated by an independent third party goes a long way to completely conveying our vision to the public and our customer base.”

The Better Business Bureau of Central Ohio (BBB) worked with SocialVentures to advance the pilot program. They collected data with the help of Measurement Resources Company (MRC) and then developed the new service to help consumers review, validate and communicate the social impact created by businesses in Central Ohio.

The Roosevelt Coffeehouse is among 13 local social enterprise businesses participating in the pilot. They are submitting information from their operations and charity giving. They will also display the new validation seal for their customers.

“Social impact is important. Social impact validated is responsible business in the public interest,” said President of BBB Kip Morse.

SocialVentures did research before the pilot was launched that found consumers want the social enterprises they support to live up to their claims. The research also underscored that the combination of integrating social impact into the business model and providing a dependable product or service are two factors that help create trust.

“This validation program is designed to connect social enterprises with consumers, advisors, and investors, and to demonstrate that their reported social impact is legitimate,” said President and CEO, SocialVentures Allen Proctor.

“The validation of social enterprises is a unique, innovative approach not being done anywhere else,” said Sheri Chaney Jones, president of MRC. “These 13 organizations are the first social enterprises to be validated in Central Ohio, and we’re looking forward to validating many more after we complete the pilot.”

The pilot is planned to continue through June 2019. Organizers said their goal is to publicly launch the service to social enterprises and nonprofits in Central Ohio in the latter half of 2019.


          Carbon monoxide poisoning injures two in east Columbus      Cache   Translate Page      

COLUMBUS, Ohio (10TV) -- The Columbus Fire Department says two people are in serious condition following a carbon monoxide poisoning in east Columbus.

It happened around 8 p.m. on Monday at a home on Roger Madison Court.

Fire officials say the two victims were transported to The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, but were talking to paramedics while enroute.

Firefighters tell 10TV they are still looking into how this happened.


          City of Columbus sets final rules on medical marijuana dispensaries      Cache   Translate Page      

In Franklin County, the state has approved five medical marijuana dispensaries locations.

When medical marijuana dispensaries begin selling to customers sometime next year, only customers who have one of the 22 debilitating diseases can buy pot, and they must have a doctors recommendation.

"A person can not just come in and say I have this illness sell me something," says Columbus City Council member Priscilla Tyson.

On Monday, city council spelled out where these medical marijuana dispensaries can set up shop.

They must be 500 feet away from the nearest dispensary and processors will have to locate in industrial areas. Dispensaries will locate in commercial districts.

Because the state already approved the locations of the 5 dispensaries, there was little the city can do to regulate them beyond state law.

Columbus is requiring that owners names and phone numbers be available to civic groups where they are located in case there are issues.

In order to be permitted in the city, dispensaries must pay a $1,900 permit fee to the city.

The state medical board told physicians today they can now register patients with one of 21 qualifying medical conditions and their caregivers through the state's online registration system.

State regulators believe small amounts of product will be available before Feb of next year.

          Ohio State's Urban Meyer says he'll step down after Rose Bowl, citing health reasons      Cache   Translate Page      

Ohio State University head football coach Urban Meyer is calling it quits after the Rose Bowl because of health problems, he said Tuesday.

In 2014, the 54-year-old had surgery on a brain cyst that was causing him severe headaches, and while he felt he could manage the headaches, they returned -- most notably, he said, during a 2017 game against Penn State in which he was "hit real hard."

In October, a headache brought him to his knees during the Indiana game, but he later told Yahoo Sports he was managing the headaches with medication.

On Tuesday, however, Meyer said, "I believe I will not coach again."

The three-time national champion skipper's announcement came a day after Buckeyes fans learned quarterback Dwayne Haskins is a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, given to college football's most outstanding player, and two days after the Buckeyes narrowly missed the four-team College Football Playoff.

The Buckeyes finished the season 12-1, but Meyer was not on the sideline for three games because he was serving a suspension stemming from his handling of domestic violence allegations against one of his former assistants.

Ryan Day, who coached the Buckeyes during Meyer's absence and was promoted this year to offensive coordinator, will take the team's reins upon Meyer's departure.

Athletic director Gene Smith said Day is "a good human being and a good family man, and we're blessed to have him." After saying he was honored to head such a prestigious program, Day thanked Meyer and Meyer's wife, Shelley.

"I can't put into words what you did for me and my family," he said. "Your legacy will live on forever."

Ohio State suspended Meyer without pay for the first three games of 2018 after he and Gene Smith "failed to take sufficient management action" on spousal abuse allegations involving ex-assistant coach Zach Smith.

The school, which was already embroiled in separate scandals involving alleged sex abuse by a now-deceased athletics doctor and a diving coach, put Meyer on leave August 1.

Meyer, who had a "core values" banner in the locker room demanding his players treat women with respect, apologized to Ohio State fans following word that he would be suspended.

"I'm fully aware I'm ultimately responsible for this situation," Meyer said in August. "I followed my heart and not my head. At each juncture, I gave Zach Smith the benefit of the doubt."

He later issued a statement apologizing directly to Smith's wife, saying, "Let me say here and now what I should have said on Wednesday: I sincerely apologize to Courtney Smith and her children for what they have gone through."

Ohio State finished the 2018 season at No. 6. Meyer's last game will be against the ninth-ranked Washington Huskies in Pasadena, California.

It will be his first time coaching in the Rose Bowl. He heads into the game with an 82-9 record during his Ohio State tenure, including a perfect record over archrival Michigan.

Meyer won two national championships with the Florida Gators before taking the head coaching spot in Columbus ahead of the 2012 season. He led the Buckeyes to a national championship two years later. He previously coached at Bowling Green and Utah.

With a 186-32 record over 17 seasons, Meyer steps down with one of the best winning percentages in the history of college football. His tally includes 11 bowl wins, the inaugural 2015 College Football Playoff among them.

In April, Ohio State announced Meyer had signed a two-year contract extension that would keep him at the helm through 2022. He was slated to earn $7.6 million in 2018, making him the one of the highest paid coaches in the nation.

          Here are 7 reasons overworked and underpaid workers on the U.S. coasts should move to Middle America      Cache   Translate Page      
Money stretches a lot further when you’re paying a reasonable rent.

If you live on the East or West Coast, you’ve probably been subjected to increasingly expensive rents, food, clothing, and more—tiresome commutes, working multiple jobs to pay the bills, and the exhaustion that comes with the frustration of not being able to do more of what you want.

Unfortunately, the trajectory of ever-increasing rents and cost of living expenses is probably not going to reverse any time soon.

In the Heartland, though, more and more people are finding space to accomplish what they might not be able to elsewhere.

Here are the things you can find in Middle America that aren’t all that common on the East or West Coasts.

1. Affordable Rent

Rent in Dayton, Ohio, can be had for a few hundred dollars. A three-bedroom house in Dayton’s up-and-coming South Park is just $750 a month. Houses in the “rich” parts of Middle America can be found for less than $500,000. A friend recently purchased an eight-unit apartment building in a small Midwestern college town for just $170,000. Your quality of life can dramatically improve while spending the same as, or less than, what you’re currently paying on rent—and even provide the opportunity to purchase or invest in property for less than what you would pay in rent on the East or West Coast.

2. Affordable Nights Out

I recently went to purchase a shot of top-top shelf liquor at a popular bar in Lincoln, Nebraska, and almost fell over when the bartender asked me for $4. The people I was with were concerned that was too much money. No, I explained; I just had never paid so little for good liquor before. In Middle America, a Jack and Coke could cost as little as $2. Some of these states, like Michigan, even have legalized marijuana. Other places offer incredible deals at high-quality restaurants, cafes, and luxury boutique hotels—places and quality that are rare, if ever, treats when you’re spending thousands on rent.

3. Affordable Small Businesses

Small bookstores, cafes, clothing stores, boutique hat shops, candy stores—all sorts of fun small businesses can be found in Middle America that, if you’re an entrepreneur, you might not be able to afford to open—and keep open—on the coasts. Low-cost commercial rents and even cooperative electric utilities create an opportunity for people to experiment and try their hand at something that might seem impossible elsewhere, like a shop that just sells licorice. It makes shopping more fun because you’re looking at truly unique items, and the items are actually affordable.

4. More Time

For the professional who is accustomed to grinding for rent 14-18 hours a day, Middle America has space for people to earn money in an 8-hour day, leaving people with more time. Businesses are often still closed entirely on Sundays, leaving that day free for spending time with friends and loved ones. When one friend on a Sunday recently asked what time it was, the response was “It’s Sunday”—who cares what time it is when there is nowhere to run off to and no deadline to meet that day? It can be an adjustment, but the stress and tension of always running eventually melt away.

5. More Space to Do More of What You Love

Have you been itching to try something new—a new theater production, a street festival, impromptu marching bands, or perhaps an outdoor punk rock acupuncture festival? That might be a logistical nightmare in Brooklyn, but in Middle America, there might be some stoic resistance, but along with that often comes a “Huh. Let’s give that a try.” There’s a welcoming beginner energy. Because there simply isn’t a lot of stuff happening, people are surprisingly up and open to trying new things that, perhaps, they might be too busy for elsewhere. The adage “if you build it they will come” is actually true.

6. Money to Invest

With less money being spent on everything from rent to the club, there’s more money for saving, investing, or buying the new items you might not be able to afford in New York or Los Angeles. Property is cheap, but don’t let the stories of Detroit’s comeback (and now crazily overpriced property) discourage you. America is filled with old towns just waiting for someone to come in and do something good.

7. It’s Not All Scary Red States

There’s an idea in some parts of the East and West Coasts that Middle America is scary: Racist, homophobic, Trump-supporting, scary white people. That just isn’t the case. Most of those states would’ve gone Bernie over Trump in a heartbeat had they been given the chance. There are people of color and immigrants all over Middle America—people from Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America, who live in the “flyover” states and have brought their cultures and delicious food with them. There are hip pockets everywhere, from Columbus to Lincoln, Winona to Knoxville, Grand Rapids to Milwaukee. The internet makes it seem like these places aren’t cool, but there are already cool people out there.

Middle America is not the Middle America of Fox News. You just need to be brave enough to check it out. The opportunities there might surprise you.

          Ohio 'heartbeat abortion' bill nears Senate vote amid veto threat      Cache   Translate Page      

Columbus, Ohio, Dec 4, 2018 / 04:01 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The Ohio Senate is expected to pass legislation banning abortion on an unborn baby after he or she has a heartbeat, and there could be enough votes to override Gov. John Kasich’s promised veto, amid questions over whether the proposal could withstand US Supreme Court scrutiny.

Republicans control the Senate with 24 votes to 9, and the “heartbeat abortion ban” only needs 20 votes to override a veto. The bill could face a full vote as soon as Thursday.

House sponsor State Rep. Christina Hagan told the New York Times the legislation is designed to challenge the pro-abortion rights U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, claiming Ohio is “best positioned to send this through the Circuit Courts and to the federal Supreme Court.” She said she is confident backers have enough votes.

If H.B. 258 becomes law, it would ban abortions at around six weeks into pregnancy, once a baby’s heart beat is detectable. The law allows exceptions to prevent a woman’s death or bodily impairment, or in cases of medical emergency.

The bill’s text makes clear that a pregnant woman who undergoes an abortion is not considered in violation of the law. Rather, it allows her to take civil action against the abortion doctor involved if it is proven he or she broke the law, related to the “wrongful death of the unborn child.”

An abortionist who performs an abortion in violation of the law would commit a fifth-degree felony, punishable by up to one year in prison and a $2,500 fine, the New York Times reports.

The bill also requires the Ohio Department of Health to inspect medical records of abortion facilities to ensure they are compliant with reporting requirements.

The bill also establishes more ways to promote adoption.

The Ohio Catholic Conference on Nov. 15 said it supports “the life-affirming intent of this legislation,” but stopped short of endorsement. The conference said it will continue to assist efforts to resolve “differences related to specific language and strategies.”

“In the end, the Catholic Conference of Ohio desires passage of legislation that can withstand constitutional challenge and be implemented in order to save lives,” the Catholic conference said.

The recent vote in the House was 60-35, exactly the number of votes needed to override a veto.

The legislature first passed the bill in 2016, but it was vetoed by Kasich, a Republican set to leave office for governor-elect Mark DeWine, a Republican who supports the legislation.

“I believe that the essential function of government is to protect the most vulnerable members of society. That includes the unborn,” DeWine said in an October gubernatorial debate with Democrat Richard Cordray.

Kasich has a strong pro-life record, signing into law at least 18 abortion regulations or restrictions, including a 20-week ban. The heartbeat bill is the only one he has vetoed.

State Rep. Catherine Ingram, D-Cincinnati, has said the bill would bring back dangerous methods of abortion procedures, while other critics have faulted its lack of exceptions for women pregnant by incest or rape. The Ohio State Medical Association has said it is very concerned about the possibility that doctors could face criminal penalties for what could be considered a standard of care.

Pro-abortion rights groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice have opposed the bill. Foes of the bill planned to rally Tuesday during Senate hearings. Rally speakers included members of the Ohio Senate and House, a rabbi, and Sara Hutchinson Ratcliffe, vice-president of Catholics for Choice, Cleveland.com reports.

While Catholics for Choice self-describes as Catholic, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops have repeatedly said the group is not affiliated with the Church in any way.

In the past, the heartbeat bill was supported by pro-life organizations such as the Susan B. Anthony List. However, Ohio Right to Life pushed back against the bill, noting that similar legislation in other states have been overturned by the courts.

Mike Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life, said in 2016 that the U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear appeals to those cases. At the time, he said legal scholars believed another effort to present a heartbeat law to the Supreme Court would cause “irreparable harm” to the pro-life movement.

Since 2016, U.S. Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Anthony Kennedy have been replaced with two new justices appointed by President Donald Trump. Though Kennedy was considered a swing vote in many abortion cases, it is still unclear what the new composition of the court could mean for specific pro-life legislation.

According to the Ohio Department of Health, abortions increased last year by 1 percent compared to the previous year. Out of the 20,893 abortions performed in 2017, the report stated, almost half were performed after nine weeks of the pregnancy.

Eighteen Ohio Republicans in the legislature have sponsored a different bill, H.B. 565, to define “any unborn human” as a human person under state law.

“I believe life begins at conception so the goal of this bill is to, first of all, continue to get the word out that life does begin at conception and move the debate in that direction and to protect unborn Ohioans from being aborted,” bill sponsor Rep. Ron Hood said when the bill was introduced, CNN reports.

This proposal has drawn criticism and negative media coverage claiming it could mean pregnant women who get abortions could be charged with murder and potentially face the death penalty, claims that backers deny.


          Your Favorite "Nutcracker" Web Series Has Just Been Turned Into a Full-Length Documentary      Cache   Translate Page      


Last winter, we told you all about "Finding Clara," a YouTube series produced by tween clothing brand Justice. It followed four BalletMet Academy students cast in BalletMet's The Nutcracker. This year, it gets even better: The heart-melting show has been turned into a full-length documentary. Finding Clara was released today for rental and purchase on Amazon, Google Play and iTunes.

Finding Clara Trailer youtu.be


The documentary follows four dancers (Alaina Kelly, Molly Rainford-Dreibelbis, Lauren Grace Onderko and Isabelle Lapierre, who range in age from 10-13) over the course of three months, from auditions to rehearsals to opening night. We see the young bunheads' struggles and joys, namely how they work to find a balance between school, homework, ballet and family... and an incident involving a wooden nutcracker and a trip to the emergency room. The 90 minute documentary expands on the web series with never-before-seen footage, including interviews with artistic director Edwaard Liang and BalletMet company members. Justice and BalletMet, both headquartered in Columbus, OH, are natural collaborators, and this film is a product of Justice's new entertainment division, Justice Studios, which hopes to build on the company's mission as a"destination for all things tween girl." We're hoping that means even more ballet content is on its way (last year they put out a series of ballet tutorials on YouTube.)

While Finding Clara is geared towards a younger audience, the four dancers' enthusiasm and energy is infectious, and reminds ballet lovers of all ages of the magic of Nutcracker and the thrill of your first big role. We're giving away five copies of this new DVD (including some extra gifts) to Pointe readers; enter here to win!

          Strange Fruit #126: Professor Burt Ashe on the History & Cultural Significance of Dreadlocks      Cache   Translate Page      
Dr. Burt Ashe always saw himself as a sort of a renegade. Edgy. Bohemian. But no one else seemed to agree. "The way that I presented to the world was completely, just amazingly, conventional," he says. So he decided to change his look. "I thought maybe that me growing dreadlocks might be a kind of pathway to allow what was inside to be presented outside." In doing so, he learned about all the presumptions the world projects onto black people with 'locked hair. Jai had 'locks for 7 years, and like Ashe, he was often asked if he was Jamaican. His book, "Twisted: My Dreadlock Chronicles," explores the history of dreadlocks, and details his own relationship with the look. The natural hair movement continues to gain steam with black women, but what about men? Ashe says he got some interesting responses from them while working on the book. Like, "It's just hair man you're overthinking this," and, "Dude, your relationship with your hair is a little too...." "It's sort of a questioning of my masculinity because I decided to talk about my hair and to reveal the anxiety that comes along with 'locking ones hair." But he says there's a significance to black hair, regardless of gender—that we choose our hairstyles for a reason, whether or not we can put it into words. "I think it's time we start thinking out loud about the cultural realities and personal realities of what we do with our hair means." In our Juicy Fruit segment this week, we talk about #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches, and the history of domestic and racist terrorism in the United States. On this Independence Day weekend, we wondered whether the foundational ideals of our country—as a nation of immigrants, where freedom from persecution is possible—still hold true today. At the same time we're seeing a rise in racially-motivated violence, like the Charleston shooting and the burning of black churches, we're also seeing some striking acts of civil disobedience. Bree Newsome becmse a household name after removing the Confederate flag from South Carolina's statehouse. And someone in Boston painted "Black Lives Matter" and dumped red paint on a statue of Christopher Columbus. On a lighter note, we also recap what we loved about the BET Awards, and argue about which members of #TeamStrangeFruit cried last week in the County Clerk's office, and which simply had allergies.
          Strange Fruit #97: Yasssss! 2014 Words of the Year on Fleek      Cache   Translate Page      
The end of 2014 is upon us, and that means every outlet is publishing Best-of lists. We weren't too impressed with the Wall Street Journal's Best Pop Culture Moments last week, but one list we can get behind is the American Dialect Society's nominees for 2014 Words of the Year. Like most cultural phenomena, lots of language has its roots in subcultures - including some from gay black culture. One of the words on the list is yass, an affirmation audiences have been screaming at house ball contestants for years, that made its way into mainstream usage with a little help from Nicki Minaj. Social justice movements and hashtags also help coin new words and phrases; this year they gave us Gamergate, columbusing, and #notallmen (and its response, #yesallwomen). Grant Barrett is an officer with the American Dialect Society, and compiles their list of linguistic contenders every year. He joins us this week to talk about 2014's nominees and where they came from. He also sheds a little light on the more inexplicable (to us) choices, like "on fleek," an expression that caused Jaison to feel old for the first time in his life. And we spend our Juicy Fruit segment in the historical Brennan House in downtown Louisville, where we learn about preserving sites with historical significance to the LGBT community. Kentucky recently got a grant to help add LGBT-important sites to the National Register of Historic Places, and Preservation Louisville Director Marianne Zickuhr joins us to talk about the work they will do on the project.

          A look back at Urban Meyer's roller-coaster career shows why people have no idea what he will do next      Cache   Translate Page      

Urban MeyerScott Halleran/Getty Images

  • Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer will retire at the end of the season.
  • Meyer won three Big Ten titles and the 2014 National Championship in his seven years at Ohio State, but his final season in Columbus was marred by controversy.
  • Many speculated that the domestic violence scandal from the start of the season, combined with his ongoing health problems, could drive Meyer out of the Buckeye State.
  • Meyer has not indicated what he will do next, and his long and tumultuous career may not provide a clear answer.
  • Let's take a look back at Meyer's roller-coaster past and what he may choose to do in the future.

Urban Meyer will coach his final game for the Ohio State Buckeyes when they take on the Washington Huskies in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day.

Meyer won three Big Ten titles and the 2014 National Championship in his seven years at Ohio State, but his final season in Columbus was marred by controversy. He was widely criticized for mishandling domestic violence allegations against former assistant coach Zach Smith and was subsequently suspended for three games to start the 2018 season. 

Many speculated that Meyer's ongoing health problems, combined with the scandal, could drive Meyer out of the program.

According to Pete Thamel of CBS Sports, the decision was driven by "a myriad of factors," but that "foremost among them was his happiness with the state of the Ohio State program."

Meyer has yet to indicate what he will do next, and his nonlinear path to Ohio State doesn't provide a clear answer. Let's take a look back at his roller-coaster past and what he may choose to do in the next stage of his career.

Urban Meyer has earned a reputation as a giant of college football, but he hasn't always been a household name.

          Here are 7 reasons overworked and underpaid workers on the U.S. coasts should move to Middle America      Cache   Translate Page      
Money stretches a lot further when you’re paying a reasonable rent.

If you live on the East or West Coast, you’ve probably been subjected to increasingly expensive rents, food, clothing, and more—tiresome commutes, working multiple jobs to pay the bills, and the exhaustion that comes with the frustration of not being able to do more of what you want.

Unfortunately, the trajectory of ever-increasing rents and cost of living expenses is probably not going to reverse any time soon.

In the Heartland, though, more and more people are finding space to accomplish what they might not be able to elsewhere.

Here are the things you can find in Middle America that aren’t all that common on the East or West Coasts.

1. Affordable Rent

Rent in Dayton, Ohio, can be had for a few hundred dollars. A three-bedroom house in Dayton’s up-and-coming South Park is just $750 a month. Houses in the “rich” parts of Middle America can be found for less than $500,000. A friend recently purchased an eight-unit apartment building in a small Midwestern college town for just $170,000. Your quality of life can dramatically improve while spending the same as, or less than, what you’re currently paying on rent—and even provide the opportunity to purchase or invest in property for less than what you would pay in rent on the East or West Coast.

2. Affordable Nights Out

I recently went to purchase a shot of top-top shelf liquor at a popular bar in Lincoln, Nebraska, and almost fell over when the bartender asked me for $4. The people I was with were concerned that was too much money. No, I explained; I just had never paid so little for good liquor before. In Middle America, a Jack and Coke could cost as little as $2. Some of these states, like Michigan, even have legalized marijuana. Other places offer incredible deals at high-quality restaurants, cafes, and luxury boutique hotels—places and quality that are rare, if ever, treats when you’re spending thousands on rent.

3. Affordable Small Businesses

Small bookstores, cafes, clothing stores, boutique hat shops, candy stores—all sorts of fun small businesses can be found in Middle America that, if you’re an entrepreneur, you might not be able to afford to open—and keep open—on the coasts. Low-cost commercial rents and even cooperative electric utilities create an opportunity for people to experiment and try their hand at something that might seem impossible elsewhere, like a shop that just sells licorice. It makes shopping more fun because you’re looking at truly unique items, and the items are actually affordable.

4. More Time

For the professional who is accustomed to grinding for rent 14-18 hours a day, Middle America has space for people to earn money in an 8-hour day, leaving people with more time. Businesses are often still closed entirely on Sundays, leaving that day free for spending time with friends and loved ones. When one friend on a Sunday recently asked what time it was, the response was “It’s Sunday”—who cares what time it is when there is nowhere to run off to and no deadline to meet that day? It can be an adjustment, but the stress and tension of always running eventually melt away.

5. More Space to Do More of What You Love

Have you been itching to try something new—a new theater production, a street festival, impromptu marching bands, or perhaps an outdoor punk rock acupuncture festival? That might be a logistical nightmare in Brooklyn, but in Middle America, there might be some stoic resistance, but along with that often comes a “Huh. Let’s give that a try.” There’s a welcoming beginner energy. Because there simply isn’t a lot of stuff happening, people are surprisingly up and open to trying new things that, perhaps, they might be too busy for elsewhere. The adage “if you build it they will come” is actually true.

6. Money to Invest

With less money being spent on everything from rent to the club, there’s more money for saving, investing, or buying the new items you might not be able to afford in New York or Los Angeles. Property is cheap, but don’t let the stories of Detroit’s comeback (and now crazily overpriced property) discourage you. America is filled with old towns just waiting for someone to come in and do something good.

7. It’s Not All Scary Red States

There’s an idea in some parts of the East and West Coasts that Middle America is scary: Racist, homophobic, Trump-supporting, scary white people. That just isn’t the case. Most of those states would’ve gone Bernie over Trump in a heartbeat had they been given the chance. There are people of color and immigrants all over Middle America—people from Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America, who live in the “flyover” states and have brought their cultures and delicious food with them. There are hip pockets everywhere, from Columbus to Lincoln, Winona to Knoxville, Grand Rapids to Milwaukee. The internet makes it seem like these places aren’t cool, but there are already cool people out there.

Middle America is not the Middle America of Fox News. You just need to be brave enough to check it out. The opportunities there might surprise you.

[CN weight/eating disorders/sexual harassment]

The more I think about this the more amazed? impressed? proud? I am that I actually left the house dressed like this last night. This is probably the first time in my life that I could’ve done that, because before I would’ve looked at myself in the mirror like this and seen disgusting flabby thighs and arms, and I would’ve felt the stomach rolls hidden in that corset and felt disgusted at that too.

And it’s hard to even say this because I feel like a lot of people would just be like, “Boohoo, you’re conventionally attractive and able-bodied, how hard could your body image struggles really have been,” but like…that’s why eating disorders are a form of mental illness. They’re a form of mental illness for fat people too, obviously, and the whole point is that it’s not fucking rational.

If I weighed myself now (and I deliberately don’t), I’d probably see that I weigh more now than I ever have, and yet I feel better about my body than I ever did. Going out in leather minishorts feels like a world away from starving myself and leaning over every morning (often several times a day) to check the gap between my thighs, and hating myself when it inevitably wasn’t there. It turns out that instead of a perfect weight loss plan, what I needed was both easier and a lot less simple: better friends, better boundaries with my family, cognitive reframing, feminism, size diversity in my media. Nowadays I see the beauty in myself, *and also* in a much, much greater variety of bodies than I used to. (Coincidentally, this is the outfit I wore to a Big Girls Burlesque show last night, and that was amazing.)

Unfortunately, it wasn’t a straight shot from recovering from ED to feeling awesome about going out dressed the way I want, because there were a few years between then and now during which I lived in big cities and took public transit, and that complicates shit.

By the time I moved to New York I was comfortable with my body, but I wasn’t comfortable–and never got comfortable–with having that body in public. Nothing “”“bad”“” ever happened to me in New York–my worst harassment all happened online and my sexual assaults had all happened years before at the hands of my friends–but I never, ever got used to the stares, real or imagined. I remember covering myself up obsessively even when it was too hot, sweating in a jacket on the subway. I remember walking fast. Objectively it’s probably one of the safer places I’ve ever lived, but the problem was that I was always alone. Going out alone, coming home alone, 2 am on the subway alone and walking for blocks alone. My wardrobe became entirely dependent on how much time I’d be spending traveling alone that night, and leather shorts and bare legs definitely wouldn’t have made the cut. It’s not that I hated my body anymore; it’s that I realized that as long as I had a body gendered female, I would never feel safe.

Now I have two things I didn’t before: a car, and big groups of friends to do things with. (And as a bonus, I have partners in my city, which means even less of a chance of coming home alone.) Columbus certainly isn’t a harassment-free paradise, but I feel incredibly safe much of the time, and more importantly, living here for me means never having to be alone.

That plus recovering from my eating/body image stuff makes me feel like a bit of a superhero. A corset-and-leather-shorts-wearing superhero.

Property is cheap, but don’t let the stories of Detroit’s comeback (and now crazily overpriced property) discourage you. America is filled with old towns just waiting for someone to come in and do something good.

7. It’s Not All Scary Red States

There’s an idea in some parts of the East and West Coasts that Middle America is scary: Racist, homophobic, Trump-supporting, scary white people. That just isn’t the case. Most of those states would’ve gone Bernie over Trump in a heartbeat had they been given the chance. There are people of color and immigrants all over Middle America—people from Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America, who live in the “flyover” states and have brought their cultures and delicious food with them. There are hip pockets everywhere, from Columbus to Lincoln, Winona to Knoxville, Grand Rapids to Milwaukee. The internet makes it seem like these places aren’t cool, but there are already cool people out there.

Middle America is not the Middle America of Fox News. You just need to be brave enough to check it out. The opportunities there might surprise you.

Ohio wants to be a haven for self-driving cars, and it's already acting on those plans... if slowly. Smart Columbus and DriveOhio have announced that the state's first autonomous shuttle service, Smart Circuit, will launch in Columbus on December 10th. It's not a terribly ambitious route. Three May Mobility vehicles will cover a 1.5-mile loop around the Scioto Mile between 6AM and 10PM, with departures from each of the four stops every 10 minutes. There's a human backup driver onboard, too. However, rides are free. So long as you're not in a hurry (the shuttles drive at a modest 25MPH) and can take one of the four available seats, it won't hurt to hop aboard.

          Ohio 'heartbeat abortion' bill nears Senate vote amid veto threat      Cache   Translate Page      

Columbus, Ohio, Dec 4, 2018 / 04:01 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The Ohio Senate is expected to pass legislation banning abortion on an unborn baby after he or she has a heartbeat, and there could be enough votes to override Gov. John Kasich’s promised veto, amid questions over whether the proposal could withstand US Supreme Court scrutiny.

Republicans control the Senate with 24 votes to 9, and the “heartbeat abortion ban” only needs 20 votes to override a veto. The bill could face a full vote as soon as Thursday.

House sponsor State Rep. Christina Hagan told the New York Times the legislation is designed to challenge the pro-abortion rights U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, claiming Ohio is “best positioned to send this through the Circuit Courts and to the federal Supreme Court.” She said she is confident backers have enough votes.

If H.B. 258 becomes law, it would ban abortions at around six weeks into pregnancy, once a baby’s heart beat is detectable. The law allows exceptions to prevent a woman’s death or bodily impairment, or in cases of medical emergency.

The bill’s text makes clear that a pregnant woman who undergoes an abortion is not considered in violation of the law. Rather, it allows her to take civil action against the abortion doctor involved if it is proven he or she broke the law, related to the “wrongful death of the unborn child.”

An abortionist who performs an abortion in violation of the law would commit a fifth-degree felony, punishable by up to one year in prison and a $2,500 fine, the New York Times reports.

The bill also requires the Ohio Department of Health to inspect medical records of abortion facilities to ensure they are compliant with reporting requirements.

The bill also establishes more ways to promote adoption.

The Ohio Catholic Conference on Nov. 15 said it supports “the life-affirming intent of this legislation,” but stopped short of endorsement. The conference said it will continue to assist efforts to resolve “differences related to specific language and strategies.”

“In the end, the Catholic Conference of Ohio desires passage of legislation that can withstand constitutional challenge and be implemented in order to save lives,” the Catholic conference said.

The recent vote in the House was 60-35, exactly the number of votes needed to override a veto.

The legislature first passed the bill in 2016, but it was vetoed by Kasich, a Republican set to leave office for governor-elect Mark DeWine, a Republican who supports the legislation.

“I believe that the essential function of government is to protect the most vulnerable members of society. That includes the unborn,” DeWine said in an October gubernatorial debate with Democrat Richard Cordray.

Kasich has a strong pro-life record, signing into law at least 18 abortion regulations or restrictions, including a 20-week ban. The heartbeat bill is the only one he has vetoed.

State Rep. Catherine Ingram, D-Cincinnati, has said the bill would bring back dangerous methods of abortion procedures, while other critics have faulted its lack of exceptions for women pregnant by incest or rape. The Ohio State Medical Association has said it is very concerned about the possibility that doctors could face criminal penalties for what could be considered a standard of care.

Pro-abortion rights groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice have opposed the bill. Foes of the bill planned to rally Tuesday during Senate hearings. Rally speakers included members of the Ohio Senate and House, a rabbi, and Sara Hutchinson Ratcliffe, vice-president of Catholics for Choice, Cleveland.com reports.

While Catholics for Choice self-describes as Catholic, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops have repeatedly said the group is not affiliated with the Church in any way.

In the past, the heartbeat bill was supported by pro-life organizations such as the Susan B. Anthony List. However, Ohio Right to Life pushed back against the bill, noting that similar legislation in other states have been overturned by the courts.

Mike Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life, said in 2016 that the U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear appeals to those cases. At the time, he said legal scholars believed another effort to present a heartbeat law to the Supreme Court would cause “irreparable harm” to the pro-life movement.

Since 2016, U.S. Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Anthony Kennedy have been replaced with two new justices appointed by President Donald Trump. Though Kennedy was considered a swing vote in many abortion cases, it is still unclear what the new composition of the court could mean for specific pro-life legislation.

According to the Ohio Department of Health, abortions increased last year by 1 percent compared to the previous year. Out of the 20,893 abortions performed in 2017, the report stated, almost half were performed after nine weeks of the pregnancy.

Eighteen Ohio Republicans in the legislature have sponsored a different bill, H.B. 565, to define “any unborn human” as a human person under state law.

“I believe life begins at conception so the goal of this bill is to, first of all, continue to get the word out that life does begin at conception and move the debate in that direction and to protect unborn Ohioans from being aborted,” bill sponsor Rep. Ron Hood said when the bill was introduced, CNN reports.

This proposal has drawn criticism and negative media coverage claiming it could mean pregnant women who get abortions could be charged with murder and potentially face the death penalty, claims that backers deny.

The state of New Mexico may have celebrated its last Columbus Day. A legislative proposal to rename Columbus Day as Indigenous Peoples' Day has cleared its first hurdle in the New Mexico Legislature with a unanimous committee endorsement. Sandia Pueblo tribal member and Democratic state Rep. Derrick Lente is preparing a bill for the coming legislative session that renames the state holiday celebrated on the second Monday in October. He told fellow lawmakers that it is fitting that the tribute to Christopher Columbus be dropped in a state with 23 designated Native American communities. Tributes to European conquerors are fading or being rewritten out of consideration for Native Americans in many New Mexico communities amid enduring expressions of pride in the state's Spanish colonial heritage.

          Becoming Ohio State's Head Coach is a Dream Come True for Ryan Day      Cache   Translate Page      
Ryan Day doesn’t have the typical background of an Ohio State head coach.

Paul Brown was from Massillon. Woody Hayes grew up in Newcomerstown. Earle Bruce grew up in Pennsylvania, but played at Ohio State. Jim Tressel was born in Mentor and went to high school in Berea. Urban Meyer grew up in Ashtabula.

Day, on the other hand, grew up in Manchester, New Hampshire, and had never lived in Ohio until he was hired as the Buckeyes’ co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2017.

Even so, the opportunity to be Ohio State’s head coach is one he says he has dreamed of for a long time.

“Every coach who ever put a whistle around their neck strives to be the head coach at The Ohio State University,” Day said after being introduced as the 25th head football coach in school history on Tuesday. “I fully understand the challenges that await for me. And being on the same list as Paul Brown, Woody Hayes, Earle Bruce, John Cooper, Jim Tressel and Urban Meyer, it's extremely humbling, but I'm prepared and ready for the task.”

Day said his visions of one day being at Ohio Stadium date back to when he watched Ohio State’s annual rivalry game with Michigan as a kid.

“Probably when I was growing up and watching the Buckeyes play on TV and watching them play The Team Up North,” Day said when asked when he first thought about being Ohio State’s head coach. “I remember being on my grandfather's couch and watching the game. And just the respect I had for this place, and it was always a dream of mine.”

So when Day was offered the opportunity this week to succeed Meyer, it didn’t take him long to say yes.

“I would say Nina (Day’s wife) couldn't quite – she wasn't sleeping last night, that's for sure,” Day said. “It was a surreal experience. I had some long conversations, and I don't think it's quite really sunk in yet for all of us. We sat together as a family and talked about it last night what it meant for our family. But we understand what Buckeye Nation is. We understand what this means for our family. And we're going to take it very seriously and jump in with two feet.”

“Every coach who ever put a whistle around their neck strives to be the head coach at The Ohio State University.” – Ryan Day

If Meyer hadn’t made the decision to retire as Ohio State’s head coach after this season, Day probably could have gone on to be a head coach elsewhere, if he wanted. Meyer said that Day “had a chance to go become a head football coach at a pretty impressive place” last offseason; Meyer didn’t specify where, but Eleven Warriors confirmed Day was a candidate at Mississippi State, and he also reportedly had an offer to become the Tennessee Titans’ offensive coordinator. Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith, meanwhile, described Day on Tuesday as “a talented and gifted guy that many others wanted to interview him and potentially hire.”

Day, however, turned down those overtures last offseason to stay at Ohio State, which set up the opportunity for him to potentially become the Buckeyes’ future head coach, as well as to serve as acting head coach for the first three games of this season while Meyer served a suspension. He signed a three-year contract with a $1 million salary when he was promoted to offensive coordinator last offseason, and has repeatedly said over the past year that he was appreciative of the opportunities he has been afforded at Ohio State.

"We love Ohio State," Day said in March. "This place is unlike any other place. It’s a great place to work. Got a great group of quarterbacks to work with here. My family loves Columbus. It’s the best place to work in America, and I really believe that. So my family loves it here, and I love it here."

Day’s loyalty was rewarded on Tuesday, when he agreed to a five-year contract worth $4.5 million for 2019 to become Meyer’s successor.

While some people felt that Ohio State should conduct a national search for a new head coach instead of simply promoting from within, Smith decided that was unnecessary because of the belief he has in Day’s ability to get the job done.

“He has proven that he's ready for this challenge during this last two years,” Smith said. “He understands our higher purpose, which is the total student-athlete development strategy. He appreciates the profiles of the student-athletes we need to recruit. And the reality is we have a strong infrastructure in place that I know that he has embraced and will continue to embrace.

“He has confidence, passion. He has the perfect demeanor for our environment. He shares the values that we hold so dear: Integrity, education, excellence, people-first, respect and tradition. His diversity and his background and his experiences have uniquely prepared him for this opportunity. He's a good human being, good family man and we're blessed to have him as our next head football coach.”

Now, Day has the opportunity to lead the Ohio State football program even though he is just 39 years old and has never been a full-time head coach before.

That’s a steep trajectory to climb so fast, and Day knows he has a huge responsibility and huge shoes to fill. But he’s not taking the opportunity lightly.

“We all are part of something special here at Ohio State. And the culture that Urban Meyer has created here is strong,” Day said. “And my pledge to the players is that our staff is going to give you every opportunity to maximize yourself as a football player, as a student in establishing your career after football.

“To Buckeye Nation: You have my word that I'm going to give everything I have to continue the tradition of excellence and winning that this program has enjoyed during its storied career.”


          Hiring Ryan Day Means Maintaining What Urban Meyer Built      Cache   Translate Page      

Urban Meyer brought Ryan Day to Ohio State nearly two years ago to disrupt the offense. He wanted the innovative offensive mind to help take the unit to new heights.

Gene Smith and the higher-ups at the university selected Day as Ohio State’s new head coach in order to maintain the status of a program that Meyer spent the past seven years building.

Big difference. But the Buckeyes are banking on a similarly successful result.

Smith believes Day is the man for the job, mainly because he believes in what Meyer left behind. When he began considering potential candidates to succeed Meyer – if he opted to step away – in the past couple weeks, Smith kept coming back to Day.

“Our program does not need disruption,” Smith said on Tuesday. “It does not need to blow up and have people come in and try and adapt to our standards of operation and try and change the infrastructure that we've put in place for the student-athlete. So we had a talented and gifted guy that many others wanted to interview him and potentially hire.”

When Ohio State hired Meyer in November 2011, the program was in need of a rehabilitation.

The tattoo scandal and NCAA violations rocked the athletic department. Jim Tressel, a legendary figure at the university, departed under precarious circumstances. The program needed someone to steady it. Meyer just happened to fall into Ohio State’s lap.

Seven years later, Meyer will leave that same program on Jan. 2 in need of nothing but maintenance and a strong leader, which both he and Smith believe they have in Day.

“We all strive to do that, to leave a place better than we found it, and hopefully leaving it in the hands of someone who has the capacity to do it better than us. We're fortunate to have had Ryan in our presence to be able to develop that.”– Gene Smith

During his seven seasons, Meyer has accumulated an 82-9 record and beat Michigan all seven times the Buckeyes played them in the annual rivalry game. His team didn’t lose a single game in his first season as head coach, going 12-0, and Ohio State won the national championship with a third-string quarterback two years later. The Buckeyes finished first, or tied for first, in their division all seven years and won the Big Ten title the past two seasons.

Meyer built the structure of a program that competes with the very, very best in college football. Day’s job is to maintain, not rehabilitate, and he knows that. He learned that firsthand earlier this fall when he served as acting head coach during Meyer’s three-game suspension.

“The footprint that he's left here and the infrastructure is strong,” Day said. “And knowing that and being here for two years and seeing exactly how it's been done gives me great confidence. Also, walking in those shoes during the beginning of the year, during that time, took a step away from just working with the offense and the X's and O's and then took a wider step back and looked at the leadership role of what it means to be the head coach at Ohio State and understand, like Gene spoke of, everybody that comes under your wings there.”

Even though Day has never been a head coach at any level, Smith felt comfortable enough to hire him.

He said he recognized the talent of Day quickly and met with him for some “quality time” in his office this summer. Then, as suddenly as possible, Day got a chance to prove himself.

With both Meyer and Smith sidelined for the first three weeks of the season on suspensions, Day proceeded to blow out Oregon State and Rutgers, then travel down to Arlington, Texas, for a game against TCU, which the Buckeyes won, 40-28.

Day’s behind-the-scenes acumen impressed Smith more than his on-field success, though.

“He had an opportunity to audition in a different way,” Smith said. “Not relative to winning on the field, but how he mastered leading, not just the football staff, but everyone else around it. This is a complex place. And so having someone to be able to continue the stability and consistency that we have was important to me. So I did not feel I needed to conduct a public national search.”

Ryan Day

No national search meant staying with Day, and Day had a chance to leave last year.

Eleven Warriors confirmed Mississippi State wanted him as head coach, but he opted to remain in Columbus, which set up the type of succession plan “most leaders strive to have,” Smith said.

“We all strive to do that, to leave a place better than we found it, and hopefully leaving it in the hands of someone who has the capacity to do it better than us,” Smith said. “We're fortunate to have had Ryan in our presence to be able to develop that. He has proven that he's ready for this challenge during this last two years.”

Smith estimated Meyer took two years to fully understand how the program ran. Coincidentally, the next year, he won a national title.

“Ryan has lived it. He's seen it,” Smith said. “And so one of the greatest responsibilities of a coach is personnel management. And there's over 70 people in the Woody Hayes Athletic Facility. So for us to have a person with his high IQ and EQ, with the understanding of what we're all about to step into this leadership role, significant.”

Don’t misunderstand Smith, though.

Just because Day understands the intricacies of the program doesn’t mean he didn’t think long and hard about whether he would be able to win at a level deemed acceptable by the athletic department and the fan base.

“Now, if he wasn't talented I wouldn't have him here if he couldn't X and O, let's be clear,” Smith said. “He's gotta win ball games. He knows that. Gotta win ball games. But it takes a lot of understanding about our environment in order to position our young people to win those ball games.”

It’s time for Day to put his stamp on the program.

Just don’t expect him to alter it in any way that might negatively disrupt the process that have led to such impressive results.


          Skull Session: Ryan Day is Better Than Tom Herman and Dan Mullen, Jim Harbaugh's Increased Pressure to Win, and Joe Burrow Speaks Highly of Day      Cache   Translate Page      

Ohio State is replacing a three-time national championship winner and arguably a top-five college football head coach of all time with a first-time head coach without a verified Twitter account who Wikipedia deems less famous than a Welsh professional snooker player.

The best part: It's an absolute home run hire. Welcome to the show, Ryan Day.

An extreme dose of ICYMI

Word of the Day: Concatenation.

 TOM HERMAN? DAN MULLEN? Apparently Urban Meyer thinks the new Buckeye head coach is even better than the two offensive coordinators that helped him win his three national titles.

Cris Carter spoke on FS1's First Things First about Meyer's retirement, revealing how worried he was about his friend and former position coach and seeming to imply that he thought Meyer might die on the sideline if he didn't stop coaching.

But in much lighter news, he also revealed just how highly Meyer thinks of Day:

“Urban thinks he’s the best offensive coordinator he’s ever had. He’s got three of four guys out there, Dan Mullen, Tom Herman. These guys are running Florida, Texas. He said Ryan Day is even better than them, and you can see the way he runs his offense, it’s definitely far more creative.”

I can't say enough how great a hire this is. I talked to Day a lot during the 2016 season, back before everyone else around the Buckeye football beat realized he was the actual offensive coordinator, and I was blown away.

The dude is an offensive genius, but can explain it in a way that a six-year-old could understand. He's also a genuinely kind and likable individual who makes you feel valued and listened to, even when you're just an inexperienced college kid with an audio recorder asking scheme questions, trying to get him to explain football to you.

And he did explain football to me, gladly. And I wrote about it.

 QUARTERBACKS ARE RAVING. People forget, Ryan Day actually produced two starting quarterbacks this season – one just plays for a different school now. And he still had nothing but pleasant things to say about his former position coach.

From Bill Rabinowitz of the Columbus Dispatch:

“He brought a certain credibility to our room that helped us all reach our potential,” Burrow said. “What was unique about him was that he didn’t just know the X’s and O’s. He understood the nuances of being a leader.

“He understood that every person is different and when you try to coach them, you have to coach everybody differently. If you try to coach everybody the same, they will not listen. He not only knew it, but taught it to the quarterbacks.

“I think that is what will allow him to be wildly successful as a head coach. I wouldn’t be the player or person I am today without coach Day.”

The world's most famous former third-string quarterback also weighed in, even though he's never played for Day.

I also appreciate how he tossed in some stellar Tim Beck and Ed Warinner shade, who were the only two other of play callers and coordinators between Herman and Day, and thus the obvious target of Dolo's subtle criticism.

Hey, with Day moving up the ranks, the Buckeyes will presumably need a new quarterback, and Cardale Jone swill presumably need a job. Makes you think, for sure.

 HARBAUGH WILL RUE THE DAY. You didn't have to look far or wide to find to find a Michigan Man celebrating the departure of the dude who kicked the asses of almost two-straight graduating classes of Wolverines.

For the first time in about seven years, Ohio State looks fragile. That's getting them giddy, and putting more pressure on their khaki'd savior.

I mean, yeah.

If Jim Harbaugh can't get it done at home, against a first-year head coach with (presumably) a first-year starter at quarterback, it probably just ain't going to happen.

And folks, my official stance is that it just probably ain't going to happen.

I mean, who do they think orchestrated the assault on Michigan's top-ranked defense this year, which was the most points the Wolverines have ever surrendered in regulation?

 HOLTMANN PRAISES URBAN. Noted Buckeye football fan Chris Holtmann had some pleasant things to say about the outgoing head coach of the Ohio State football team.

From Adam Jardy of the Columbus Dispatch:

“When I got a chance to be around here, obviously I imagined being around him and being able to learn for a number of years,” Holtmann said. “We’ve had a chance to spend some time together and he’s been, whether it’s been talking to a recruit or just sharing thoughts, he’s been great.

“I wouldn’t say our relationship has grown to where we’re close friends because I just got here, but he really has been tremendous from day one to me and Shelley’s been tremendous to my wife.”

...

In his press conference announcing his retirement, Meyer said he plans to remain around the program and in the area. Holtmann said he’s hoping that their relationship will continue to grow.

“I think that who he is as a coach, it’s really cool seeing former players come back,” he said. “Who he is as a coach and a person, I think, I’m excited to hopefully continue to get to know him. He’s had an incredible legacy in coaching and I know he’s a tremendous family man and I really wish him and his family well.”

Chris Holtmann brought recruits to talk to Urban Meyer?

Man, based on Holtmann's performance on the recruiting trail and his newfound status as an Ohio State football superfan, maybe Ryan Day needs to start bringing recruits to talk to Holtmann.

 BIG GAME BOB WHEN THE BIG GAMES STOP. Bob Stoops is enjoying life as a retired man, and he's got some advise for Urban as he turns in his play sheet for an AARP card.

From George Schroeder of USA Today:

“It’s not easy, let me tell you,” Stoops said. “I’d tell him, ‘Have some patience.’ It takes time. It’s such a drastic difference. It takes a lot.

“I’m still not adjusted – but there’s still time.”

...

“The intensity, the competition, the challenge of this,” he said. “But also for all of us that played as well as coached, it’s been 40 years of my life I’ve been with a gang of guys. It’s like, you always had your crew and all of the sudden you don’t have a crew anymore. You’ve got your players and your coaches and a fraternity of guys you’re constantly interacting with every single day, and all of the sudden you go to being alone. So that’s not easy to handle.”

Meyer is leaving under extremely similar circumstances as Stoops did. Both felt it was the perfect time for them to step away, and both felt like they had the perfect successor already on staff.

Meyer called Day an “elite” coach who is primed to continue the Buckeyes’ success. Stoops declined to make the comparison – “That’s for them to say, not for me,” he said – but Meyer’s comments sounded similar to the way Stoops described Riley when he stepped away.

“It was obvious to me (Riley was ready),” Stoops said, “and I think that’s why I got the feeling that I did. … To me, it was important that our program continue in a great way. I thought, ‘You know, this is an opportunity for me to do what I want to do in life, whatever that may be.’ But bottom line, here’s an opportunity for me to step away and leave it going as smoothly as possible.

“I not only was looking out for me, but looking out for the program and me. I found the right blend that, ‘You know what? This is perfect.’

“Hopefully for Urban, it works out great for him.”

I'm sure Stoops is loving everything about watching Oklahoma's playoff run this season, knowing he helped build it.

Urban's going to feel the same way during Ohio State's national title run next year.

 LEBRON JAMES HAD ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA. Rule of thumb, if you're asked about something you know nothing about, don't pretend to know.

Otherwise, this happens:

The most hilarious thing about this is that the news of Urban Meyer's retirement and Ryan Day's hiring was totally packaged together completely simultaneously, from the initial media release to the press conference.

To only acquire half of this information seems far more unlikely than just not hearing any of the information at all.

          A Timeline of Events Leading To Urban Meyer's Decision to Retire As Ohio State Head Coach      Cache   Translate Page      

Urban Meyer’s decision to retire from Ohio State shocked many people, but it was a long time coming.

He had conversations about the longevity of his coaching career at Ohio State as early as 2014. Here's the full timeline of what happened in the past few years that led to Urban Meyer's decision to retire on Tuesday and Ryan Day stepping in as head coach.


  • SPRING OF 2014
     

    Urban Meyer has surgery

    Urban Meyer had an operation to remove a “small fluid collection related to a congenital arachnoid cyst” during the offseason. At the time, the operation was deemed by Ohio State as a “short medical procedure.” During his press conference on Tuesday, Meyer said he has been dealing with constant headaches, which “came to a head” in 2014 and led to him getting surgery. 

    “First with the doctors,” Meyer said on Tuesday, describing his thoughts in 2014. “What is this? What are we dealing with? What's the long-range? What's this and what's that? And we came through it pretty good.”

  • 2014
     

    Urban Meyer has first conversations about longevity

    Meyer didn't specify at what point during the year or whether it was before or after his surgery, but Meyer said he had conversations in 2014 about his health and how it would affect his future.

    “Also had conversations, to be honest with you, in '14 when we went through the whole scenario,” Meyer said on Tuesday.

  •  
     

    2015

  • 2015-16
     

    Urban Meyer's headaches improve, then worsen

    Following the surgery, Meyer's health improved. His headaches did not affect him nearly as much as they did before the operation. However, as time passed, Meyer could not maintain his prior level of health, which continued to decline.

    “2015 it was relatively good,” Meyer said on Tuesday. “(2016), OK.”

  •  
     

    2017

  • FALL OF 2017
     

    Urban Meyer's headaches become a problem again

    Though the surgery in 2014 helped subdue Urban Meyer's headaches, they began to return to their prior form during the 2017 season. The headaches once again negatively affected him.

    “It recurred last year,” Meyer said. “I started dealing with some issues last year.”

    He called the 2017 season "the tough one" on Tuesday since his headaches had returned.

  • OCT. 28, 2017
     

    Headaches "hit real hard"

    Fans rushed the field, Urban Meyer referenced J.T. Barrett as a possible Heisman contender and the Buckeyes capped off a 39-38 comeback win against Penn State, but Meyer did not feel right. The headaches had returned in a big way. Meyer couldn't shake them off. He knew his health was at stake.

    “It hit real hard,” Meyer said. “And we have a great medical team that was over the top trying to help me through it. I was on medicine and all that. But we had conversations back then about longevity and the seriousness of it. Because, as they said, it's not your elbow or your foot. We're talking about something else.”

  • DEC. 20, 2017
     

    Urban Meyer says Ryan Day turned down head coach opportunity

    Ryan Day had the opportunity to leave Ohio State to become a head coach after just one year. Last December, Urban Meyer said Day turned down a job offer, which was reportedly from Mississippi State.

    “Coach Day had the opportunity to potentially be a head coach in the SEC and decided to stay at Ohio State,” Meyer said on Dec. 20, 2017.

  • DEC. 20, 2017
     

    Jackson Carman says Dabo Swinney told him Urban Meyer was on the back end of his career

    Jackson Carman, an in-state recruiting in the 2018 recruiting cycle, spurred Ohio State in favor of Clemson. Following his commitment on the first day of the early signing period, Carman told The Athletic's Ari Wasserman that Clemson coach Dabo Swinney told him Urban Meyer was on the back end of his career.

    “It wasn’t a major factor, but it was an underlying one,” Carman told Wasserman.

  • JAN. 23, 2018
     

    Ryan Day promoted to offensive coordinator

    After working as Ohio State's co-offensive coordinator for one season, Ryan Day earned a promotion to offensive coordinator

    “Ryan is clearly a very talented coach who has been an outstanding addition to our program,” Urban Meyer said in January. "He has been approached by other schools numerous times this offseason for coordinator and head coach opportunities, and by the National Football League for a coordinator opportunity. I am pleased that he has elected to continue to work on this staff and to lead, mentor and coach the terrific young men we have in this program.”

  • FEB. 7, 2018
     

    Urban Meyer says he expects to sign an extension

    During his National Signing Day press conference, Urban Meyer said Gene Smith and the athletic department had extended a contract extension to him. Smith said the extension was offered to maximize Ohio State's recruiting efforts since prospects wanted a commitment from Meyer longer than the three years remaining on his contract.

  • FEB. 17, 2018
     

    Ryan Day becomes a $1 million coach

    Ryan Day, along with Greg Schiano, became the first Ohio State assistant coach with a salary above $1 million. He earned a $600,000 raise from $400,000 to $1 million, which made him the second-highest paid assistant coach on the staff.

  • APRIL 5, 2018
     

    Board Of Trustees approves Urban Meyer's contract extension

    During a Board of Trustees meeting, Urban Meyer's contract extension was approved. He was given a $1.2 million raise, which made him the highest-paid coach in the Big Ten. The two-year extension ran through the 2022 season.

  • SUMMER OF 2018
     

    Gene Smith gets to know Ryan Day

    Though Ryan Day had already been on Ohio State's coaching staff for a year, Gene Smith used this summer to get to know him. Smith said he met with Day in his office for "a great deal of time.”

    “We recognized the talent that Ryan Day had early,” Smith said on Tuesday. "And I spent a great deal of time getting to know him. Did that this summer. We actually met in my office in the summertime. Spent some quality time getting to know one another. And then obviously throughout the year.”

  • AUG. 1, 2018
     

    Urban Meyer placed on administrative leave, Ryan Day named interim head coach

    Following the domestic violence allegations about Zach Smith, Urban Meyer was placed on paid administrative leave. Gene Smith was also placed on paid administrative leave.

    “Gene (Smith, Ohio State athletic director) and I agree that being on leave during this inquiry will facilitate its completion,” Meyer said in a statement on Aug. 1. “This allows the team to conduct training camp with minimal distraction. I eagerly look forward to the resolution of this matter.”

    Ryan Day was named interim head coach the same day Meyer was placed on administrative leave. 

  • AUG. 22, 2018
     

    Urban Meyer suspended three games

    Ohio State opted to suspend Urban Meyer for three games, rather than terminate his contract, following an investigation into how he and the athletic department handled the Zach Smith allegations. Gene Smith was also suspended for a little more than two weeks.

    “Although neither Urban Meyer nor Gene Smith condoned or covered up the alleged domestic abuse by Zach Smith, they failed to take sufficient management action relating to Zach Smith’s misconduct and retained an Assistant Coach who was not performing as an appropriate role model for OSU student-athletes,” Ohio State said in a statement on Aug. 22. “Permitting such misconduct to continue is not consistent with the values of the University and reflects poorly on Coach Meyer, Athletic Director Smith, and the University.”

    Though Meyer said his health was the main factor that led to him announcing his retirement, he said the Zach Smith situation and the suspension had "an impact" on him opting to step aside.

    “That was a very difficult time, very difficult time,” Meyer said on Tuesday. “But this has been – I've had to deal with the headaches for many years and it came to a head in 2014 and again last year and this year as well. As difficult a time as that was, that didn't have an impact as much on the headaches. But it did have an impact.”

  • OCT. 6, 2018
     

    Urban Meyer falls to the ground due to a headache

    During the fourth quarter of Ohio State's 49-26 win against Indiana, Urban Meyer fell to the ground. Bruce Feldman, the sideline reporter working the game, originally reported he collided with a staffer. But after the game, Meyer said he dropped to one knee due to a headache. After the game, though, he downplayed the event.

    “I’ve dealt with headaches in the past, just dealing with a headache,” Meyer said on Oct. 6.

  • OCT. 30, 2018
     

    Urban Meyer says he plans to coach as long as possible

    After speculation remained constant about his health, Urban Meyer welcomed four reporters into his office to discuss how the headaches have impacted his job and his status moving forward.

    “I am fully committed to Ohio State and the football program for as long I can,” Meyer told the Columbus Dispatch.

    Gene Smith also told the Columbus Dispatch he did not see a change coming.

  • A COUPLE WEEKS AGO
     

    Gene Smith feels comfortable with Ryan Day as head coach

    Though he didn't say it publicly at the time, Gene Smith said on Tuesday that he began to feel comfortable with the idea of Ryan Day possibly succeeding Urban Meyer at some point as head coach a "couple weeks ago.”

    “The story is for the last month Urban and I, every Sunday, just like I normally do after a football game – and every year I do this and all season long – we began to talk about potential transition,” Smith said. “And you can talk about why. But we had deep conversations about that. So while we were having those conversations, I was looking at candidates across the country and trying to decide if I was going to go national search. And as I thought about those potential candidates, and some of them very good and some of them I know, I felt more comfortable coming back to Ryan Day. Our program does not need disruption. It does not need to blow up and have people come in and try and adapt to our standards of operation and try and change the infrastructure that we've put in place for the student-athlete. So we had a talented and gifted guy that many others wanted to interview him and potentially hire. So a few weeks ago I kind of felt, OK, I needed to kind of lock in here as we had our conversations.”

  • WITHIN THE PAST TWO WEEKS
     

    The idea of retiring crosses Urban Meyer's mind

    Urban Meyer doesn't remember exactly when it happened, but at some point in the past couple weeks, he started to think about a potential retirement. 

    “Walking off the stadium against our rival in that last game, things started to cross my mind,” Meyer said. “Going into Indianapolis, started to cross my mind. I wanted to go longer. The thing that really started to make things, when recruits started asking me, will you be here for four or five years. Recruits I'm very close with. And this early signing date has put pressure all over this world – the college football world.”

    Recruiting played a large role in his decision to step away when he did. 

    “If you sign a scholarship and the coach decides to leave after that they're free to go,” Meyer said. “So this was – and people will say, why would you let recruiting get in the way. That's a silly question. That's the blood – you want to have a good team you recruit. And you recruit very hard. So that put a little push on it. And to be honest, I didn't want to mislead recruits. Gene and I both felt – not felt, we knew – and that's what made it now, the decision now.”

  • DEC. 2, 2018
     

    Gene Smith needs Urban Meyer to make a decision

    One day after Ohio State beat Northwestern to win the Big Ten championship, Urban Meyer had a decision to make. Gene Smith needed to know about his status moving forward.

    “I knew that ultimately Urban had to make a decision this past Sunday or yesterday, and I was going to have to move one way or the other,” Gene Smith said.

  • DEC. 3, 2018
     

    Urban Meyer makes the decision to retire

    Gene Smith hoped Urban Meyer would make his decision on Sunday, but he needed some extra time. The next day, though, Meyer came to Smith with his answer.

    “I heard the news yesterday,” Smith said on Tuesday. “We chatted a little bit. So we knew that it was probably imminent. And I walked into his office this morning and he was sitting at his desk. And I stood before him and we looked at each other in the eye and I said it in a different way than I'm going to say it right now. I said, if you want to stop this thing, I'll pull the plug right now. I articulated it a little differently. But at that moment – actually, yesterday I knew. We've had conversations for a long time. But yesterday, when I really knew he was there. And so, he needed the extra time, but I knew he was there.”

    Urban Meyer added: “I met with Gene and I knew that this isn't something I'm going to do for the next 15 years, 10 years. I knew after the experiences I had on the sideline again and in 2014, just dealing with the headaches, that I wanted to do Ohio State right and Gene Smith right.”

    Meyer said he sat in his office last night with Terry McLaurin and Parris Campbell for about an hour both about the decision to retire and other topics. He said his interactions with the players are what he'll miss most about coaching.

    Meyer also said he talked to a few recruits on Monday in order to let them know what might be happening.

    “I talked to a couple recruits that I'm very close with and I said this might happen,” Meyer said. I wanted to gauge their reaction. And I can't tell names and all that, but it was over the top because of the respect they have for Ryan and the program and Ohio State.”

  • DEC. 4, 2018
     

    Urban Meyer announces his decision, tells the team

    Tuesday morning, Urban Meyer told Gene Smith for the final time he would retire. Then, he called a meeting with the entire team to tell him of the decision and the plan for Ryan Day to succeed him as head coach.

    “We're not here without the student-athletes,” Meyer said. “I have an incredible – as you witnessed this fall – the leadership on this team. I'm willing to say it's as good as we've ever had.”

    At 7:30 a.m., Ohio State officially announced Urban Meyer's retirement and the promotion of Ryan Day to head coach.

  • THE FUTURE
     

    Ryan Day becomes head coach

    According to his contract, Ryan Day doesn't become Ohio State's head coach until Jan. 2. However, that won't stop him from hitting the recruiting trail.

    “After we get done here, it's going to be a sprint to get out and get in homes and get around some of the families,” Day said. “Obviously a lot of relationships that are already built there. Some other ones, especially on defense, that maybe aren't as strong yet. But the response has been great. The response has been strong. And excited to get on the road.”

    Meyer will remain involved in recruiting during December, but he won't be leading the efforts.

    “Ryan will be the head coach out recruiting. I'll visit with recruits on campus,” Meyer said. “And then I'll have conversations with them if they feel necessary because I'm still really close with that class.”

    Just a few days ago, Day didn't believe he would be anything other than offensive coordinator. That changed quicker than he every could have imagined.

    “The past few weeks we've been knee deep in trying to beat our rival and trying to win the Big Ten championship,” Day said. “There's been no hour of the day that I've been focused on anything other than that. So the last 48 hours happened really, really fast. And it was one of those things where Gene and I had a few really general conversations but nothing specific at all. So when it all happened, it all happened really, really fast.”


          Urban Meyer Hopes to Remain in Columbus and Stay Involved With Ohio State Even After His Retirement As Head Coach      Cache   Translate Page      

Urban Meyer's time as Ohio State's head football coach is coming to a close, but that doesn't mean he's stepping away from the program.

Both Meyer and athletic director Gene Smith discussed the possibility of Meyer remaining at Ohio State in some capacity to help out the athletic program.

"I support Urban in his desire to step aside as our head coach and contribute to Buckeye Nation in a different way in the years ahead," Smith said in his opening statement, also mentioning he hopes his wife, Shelley Meyer, remains an adjunct professor at Ohio State.

Meyer did not go into details about how he might contribute, but he did express a desire to stay involved with the university and the program.

"God has a plan," Meyer said. "I'm not quite sure what it is. Gene and I are extremely close, and we discussed that. And I hope to stay involved."

“I hope to somehow have an impact on our student-athletes and be involved in this athletic department and this great university.”– Urban Meyer

One key to Meyer's desire to remain involved at Ohio State is that relationship with Smith, which he described as "over the top." He even joked he's still going to call him "boss," even after retirement.

But more than that, Meyer simply loves Ohio State, and wants to do whatever he can to ensure its success.

"I believe in Ohio State," Meyer said. "I believe in the spirit when you walk around this campus. I believe in Buckeye Nation, because I lived it my entire life. I believe that this is a different place. And I want to help in any way I can. And I believe in our new head coach."

Meyer was born and raised in Ohio, grew up a Buckeye fan, and has no intentions of moving or walking away from that. One way or another, he wants to stick around his home state and help out his beloved university however he can.

"Gene and I have talked about this," Meyer said. "This is, like I told you, this is home. My son's just an hour and a half away in Cincinnati. My two daughters are here. So it's home."

There's no formal plan in place yet – this entire process began less than 48 hours before the announcement and for now, Meyer is still the head coach – but it certainly seems like Meyer will be sticking around Ohio State in some capacity, even if he isn't roaming the sidelines with a headset.

"My relationship with Gene Smith is as real, as real as it can get," Meyer said in his closing remarks. "I hope to somehow have an impact on our student-athletes and be involved in this athletic department and this great university."


          Urban Meyer Announces Retirement Following Rose Bowl, Ryan Day to Take Over As Ohio State's Next Head Coach      Cache   Translate Page      
Urban Meyer's tenure as Ohio State's head coach is coming to an end after seven seasons.

Meyer is set to formally announce his retirement in a press conference at 2 p.m. Tuesday, and Ryan Day will replace him, becoming the 25th head coach in Ohio State history.

Meyer will coach his final game with the Buckeyes in next month's Rose Bowl against Washington.

According to Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel, the team was scheduled to be informed in a meeting early Tuesday morning. 

Meyer's retirement comes following a season that began with him being suspended by Ohio State for three games after the university determined he failed to take significant management action relating to alleged misconduct by former assistant coach Zach Smith, and in which he revealed that he was battling severe headaches as a result of an enlarged arachnoid cyst in his brain.

After being asked about a report by Football Scoop's Scott Roussel on Friday that Meyer had told Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith that he did not plan to coach past 2019, Meyer responded, "No comment on that."

Now, we know why.

Day, Ohio State's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, takes over as head coach after serving as acting head coach for three games while Meyer was suspended.

The Athletic's Ari Wasserman had reported in September that Ohio State had begun discussions with Day about being Meyer's successor as head coach, and now, that succession will take place in January.

According to Thamel, "all indications point to Day planning to keep veteran strength coach Mickey Marotti, director of operations Brian Voltolini, respected personnel director Mark Pantoni and player development director Ryan Stamper."

Meyer's tenure comes to an end following seven seasons in Columbus, highlighted by a national championship season in 2014 and a 7-0 record against Ohio State's archrival Michigan. He has gone 82-9 over those seven seasons, good for a .901 winning percentage.

Per Thamel, "Meyer is expected to spend more time with his family, which includes one grandchild and another on the way. He may consider television work and could potentially do work with the Ohio State athletic department in some capacity. That role could include mentoring coaches and leaders, as Meyer has maintained a strong relationship with Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith."

Meyer's final contract extension as Ohio State's head coach, signed in April, outlined the possibility for Meyer to take on a future administrative role at the university. Per the addendum that was added to his contract, "Ohio State will give Coach an opportunity to be employed at the University in an administrative role with duties related to public relations, fund raising, assisting sports administrators with professional development programing for assistant coaches, lecturing in the Masters of Coaching curriculum, or such or other different duties as mutually agreed upon with the Director of Athletics" should Meyer remain Ohio State's head coach on Jan. 31, 2023. Ohio State won't be contractually obligated to offer Meyer any role now, but it could certainly still happen.

Meyer's decision to announce his retirement prior to the bowl game follows a similar precedent to the end of his tenure at Florida. Meyer announced prior to Florida's bowl game in 2009, his fifth season with the Gators, that he would step down following the bowl game that season. That ultimately became a leave of absence, and he returned for the 2010 season, but announced his resignation for good prior to the bowl game that year.

For his career as a whole, Meyer has a record of 186-32, including three national championships, with the first two coming at Florida.


          Urban Meyer Leaves Ohio State With a Perfect 7-0 Record Against Michigan      Cache   Translate Page      
Urban Meyer leaves Ohio State as the ultimate Wolverine slayer.

A perfect 7-0, Meyer has the best record against the rivals to the north of any Buckeye head coach in history, becoming the first head coach to leave Ohio State with a perfect record against Michigan, winning all his games against that team.

And it was one hell of a ride.

In 2012, Meyer's first win over the Wolverines capped off his only undefeated season at Ohio State. Since the Buckeyes were serving a bowl ban due to the NCAA sanctions, the win had some special flair to it, with a lengthy on-field celebration.

A year later, the Buckeyes traveled to Michigan with Meyer still undefeated as Ohio State's head coach. Thanks to 379 combined rushing yards from Braxon Miller and Carlos Hyde, along with some late-game heroics from Tyvis Powell, the Buckeyes stayed unbeaten, and Meyer remained perfect against Michigan.

In 2014, the Buckeyes dueled with Michigan in Columbus with a first-year starter named J.T. Barrett at quarterback after a preseason injury to Miller. Barrett did the heavy lifting to bring Ohio State to victory before breaking his ankle and handing the reigns to Cardale Jones. You all know the rest.

After a bitterly disappointing loss to Michigan State in 2015, Urban Meyer righted the ship the only way he knew how – absolutely demolishing Michigan 42-13, slapping Jim Harbaugh with his first loss in the series.

The face of domination.

The 2016 edition of The Game was the most thrilling of Meyer's time in Columbus. The two-overtime classic featured a Buckeye pick six, a critical late-game first down from J.T. Barrett, a dagger run from Curtis Samuel, and an extremely salty Harbaugh.

A year later, Ohio State went back to Ann Arbor where the Buckeyes toppled Michigan yet again, but this time with a backup quarterback. Dwayne Haskins took over for an injured Barrett, and he led Ohio State to a comeback win, giving Meyer his sixth win in the series.

And Meyer capped it all of with his most recent win, the most dominant of them all. Michigan entered the game favored, with the No. 1 defense in the country and a chance to all-but punch its ticket to the College Football Playoff. Instead, Meyer's Buckeyes hit them with 62 points – the most Michigan has ever surrendered in regulation – giving Harbaugh an 0-4 start in the rivalry.

Seven years, seven wins. Meyer was as good as you could ask in the only game that matters. If that were his only legacy, it would be enough.


          Presser Bullets: Urban Meyer Announces Retirement, Ryan Day Named Ohio State's Next Head Coach      Cache   Translate Page      
Urban Meyer has officially announced his retirement.

During a press conference at the Fawcett Center on Tuesday afternoon, Ohio State's head coach formally announced his intention to retire from his post following the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1.

Additionally, Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith announced that Ryan Day, the Buckeyes' current offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, will take over for Meyer next month as the 25th coach in school history.

Smith spoke with the media, followed by Meyer and Day, and here's a bullet-point recap of what each of them had to say:

Gene Smith
  • "This is a great time in our history, to have an opportunity to recognize a coach and a family who's done such a tremendous job for our student-athletes and Buckeye Nation and our community."
  • Smith said the football players were notified this morning.
  • Smith recalled the day he met Urban and Shelley Meyer: "We knew we were getting an elite coach, and when he went 12-0 in the first season, we realized Urban was really going to be a game-changer." Said Meyer's tenure has "by far exceeded expectations."
  • On Meyer: "He is a brilliant leader of men." Described him as an innovator both on and off the field, with Real Life Wednesdays and other initiatives, and an elite recruiter. 
  • "Urban and Shelley Meyer are also both leaders in our community, especially Shelley," donating their time and efforts to contribute to university causes.
  • "We are grateful to Urban and Shelley and their family for all they have given us. They are exemplary people and professionals."
  • "I look forward to working with Urban in his new capacity," but he did not specify what that capacity is.
  • "This is professional as an athletic director, but personal as a friend ... You rocked it, brother, you did what we talked about."
  • Smith gave a shoutout to The Athletic's Ari Wasserman for his September report that discussions had taken place for Day to succeed Meyer as head coach. "You weren't too far off."
  • "We're fortunate to welcome Ryan Day into our head coaching experience."
  • On Day: "His diversity and his experiences have uniquely prepared him for this opportunity."
  • Why not conduct a national search? "I'm blessed. It's rare that you have the opportunity to create a succession plan where you have the right person in place ... We recognized the talent that Ryan Day had early ... Being able to have someone to be able to continue the stability and consistency that we have was important to me."
  • Smith said he knew Ryan Day would be the replacement if Urban Meyer left a couple weeks ago. "I knew that ultimately Urban had to make a decision this past Sunday, and I was going to make a move one way or another."
  • On Day: "Let's be clear, he got to win ballgames. But it takes a lot of understanding about our environment, to be able to win those ballgames."
  • Smith teases retiring Columbus Dispatch beat writer Tim May: "What was it like for you when you decided to retire?"
Urban Meyer
  • Meyer began by wishing a happy 2nd birthday to his grandson Troy, joking, "That's why we're all here."
  • Meyer said it always been his goal to hand off the program to "an elite coach and person," which he considers Day to be.
  • Meyer says he is looking forward to coaching the team through the Rose Bowl, and that it will be an honor to coach the Buckeyes and represent the Big Ten in that game.
  • Meyer said he began having recurring issues with headaches last year following his surgery in 2014.
  • The decision to retire was "not as difficult as I thought" because of how strongly he feels about Day and his ability as a coach.
  • Meyer said he wants to continue to have a role at Ohio State: "God has a plan. I'm not quite sure what that is ... I hope to stay involved."
  • Meyer said what happened this summer did have an impact on him, but not as much as the headaches did.
  • Meyer said he started thinking about stepping down last year during the Penn State game due to a flare-up of his headaches.
  • "This has been a fast 48 hours since that last game."
  • "This would be a really tough day if we were a mess ... To be able to know that we did right, at least we felt like we did right, this makes it that much easier."
  • Meyer joked with Tim May: "I made my decision when you made yours."
  • Meyer expects Day to be back on the recruiting trail tomorrow: "Ryan's going to be in four states tomorrow. He better be."
  • Meyer said he really started to think about whether he should leave when recruits started asking if he'd be around for 4-5 years.
  • Meyer said he had a talk with Terry McLaurin and Parris Campbell in his office Monday night for an hour.
  • Do you believe you will not coach again? "I believe I will not coach again." Are you fairly certain? "I'm certain, yes."
  • Meyer said he loves Columbus, loves Muirfield Village (where he lives), still believes in Ohio State and wants to still help the program and university grow.
  • Could you imagine being Day's age and taking over as Ohio State's head coach? "No chance." Meyer became Bowling Green's head coach at 36.
  • Meyer said Day will be the head coach on the recruiting trail immediately, but Meyer will continue to meet with recruits when they visit campus for the next month, and will be willing to answer any questions they have.
  • "The style of coaching that I've done for 33 years is a very intense, very demanding ... I've tried to delegate more, and CEO-ish more, and the product started to fail ... The challenge was can I continue to do that in that style."
  • Asked about how he felt he was treated this summer, Urban Meyer said he has addressed that several times and that several factors played a part in his decision, but not just that.
  • Meyer said it is very important for the team to stay focused ahead of the Rose Bowl.
  • Urban Meyer says the infrastructure that Ohio State has set up for football coaches to succeed is "arguably the best I've ever been around."
  • On this year's Michigan game, referring to him and Shelley: "That was one of the greatest moments of our life."
  • Meyer said Day has to have laser lights on recruiting, and that to go recruit and to make sure he has the right staff around him will be the most important keys to his success.
  • Meyer said that Day cannot allow his investment in his job to affect his faith and family, which he acknowledges he allowed to happen to him at times.
  • On if his suspension will make a difference to his legacy: "I'm sure it will. I haven't really thought that through. That was a disappointing time, obviously."
  • Meyer said "there was conversation before this year" about potentially stepping down in the next few seasons, and Ryan Day potentially being his successor, but he didn't think at the time that would be this year. Knew he wouldn't be coaching for 10-15 more years.
  • Meyer said he feels like he and his staff "represented this university and this state the right way."
  • Meyer and Smith have talked about him having a role with the university going forward. "My relationship with Gene Smith is as real as real can get."
Ryan Day
  • To Urban and Shelley Meyer: "Your legacy will live on here forever."
  • Day jokes to Meyer: "You can now sit in the box and yell at us, for going for it or not going for it on 4th down too."
  • Day thanks Ohio State's players, saying this opportunity would not be possible without them.
  • On his commitment to his players both on and off the field: "My pledge to the players is our staff is going to give you every opportunity to maximize yourself."
  • Day reaches out to the high school coaches of Ohio: "It will continue to be our top priority to recruit the best high school football players in Ohio."
  • "It didn't take long for me to figure out what the expectations are for Ohio State football. No. 1, win the rivalry game, and No. 2, win every game after that."
  • "I feel confident about our offense's ability to adapt to our personnel year in and year out." Says the Buckeyes will continue to be aggressive on defense, and that they will continue to incorporate all of their best players on special teams.
  • "Every coach who ever put a whistle around their neck strives to be the head football coach at Ohio State University ... being on the same list as Paul Brown, Woody Hayes, Earle Bruce, John Cooper, Jim Tressel and Urban Meyer, it's extremely humbling, but I'm prepared for the challenge."
  • Day said it gives him more confidence starting his time as head coach that he walked in those shoes earlier this year.
  • Day said Ohio State's other assistant coaches are still on the road recruiting, and that's the focus right now. At the end of the season, he'll go through and evaluate things and make decisions on which staff members will be retained.
  • "There's no school in America that takes better care of student-athletes than Ohio State."
  • When did you know you wanted this job? "Probably when I was growing up, and probably when I was watching the Buckeyes on TV and watching them play The Team Up North." Day said it was a "surreal experience" to be offered the job, and it was not a tough decision.
  • "We understand what this means ... we're going to take it very seriously, and we're going to jump in with two feet."
  • Day says that whatever role Meyer wants to have in the program, "the door will always be open." "Coach Meyer is always going to be a resource for me, personally."

          12/5 From 1950: Long, Romo Become Bucs; Bream & Gang Leave; No Rose or Hassler; RIP Joe; HBD Sam & Tony      Cache   Translate Page      
  • 1951 - Pittsburgh purchased 1B Dale Long from the St. Louis Browns. After 10 games, he was released and the Browns reclaimed him. Then in December, they sold him back to the Bucs, who stashed him the minors for three years while he smacked 91 dingers. In the next 2-1/2 years and 400 games, he was with the big club, banging out 64 long balls, including an eight-game homer streak in 1956, before being part of a trade with the Cubs in 1957.
Sammy Khalifa 1987 Topps
  • 1963 - SS Sam Khalifa was born in Fontana, California. Khalifa was a first round pick (#7 overall) from Arizona’s Sahuaro HS, but in his three year MLB career, all as a Pirate (1985-87), he hit just .219. He’ll go down in the history books as the first player of Egyptian ancestry to play major league baseball. 
  • 1966 - Coach Tony Beasley was born in Fredericksburg, Virginia. A minor league infielder who spent time with the Pirates, Beasley became a farm coach/manager in the Bucco organization after his playing days. Starting out as a player/coach and roving batting instructor in 1998, Beasley then managed in the Pirates system for the next five seasons, making the playoffs every year. Tony became the Pirates roving minor league infield instructor (he was considered instrumental in the transition of Neil Walker into a second baseman) and was named third base coach in 2008 by John Russell. After JR left after 2010, Beasley spent four seasons in the Washington organization before getting the call from Jeff Banister to become the third base coach of the Texas Rangers. In 2016, he was diagnosed with cancer. After surgery and chemo, he was back in uniform at Arlington, albeit primarily as a quality control coach. 
  • 1973 - The Pirates did some addition by subtraction: LHP Luke Walker was sold to the Tigers, RHP Chris Zachary was sent to the Phils for UTIL Pete Koegel (whose last MLB outing was in 1972, with no more to come) and a couple of days later, RHP Bob Johnson was flipped to Cleveland for career minor leaguer OF Bill Flowers. Johnson worked 29 more games in two seasons, Walker lasted one year with Motown, and Zachary never appeared in another MLB game.  
  • 1978 - 37-year-old Pete Rose signed a four-year, $3.2 million deal with the Phillies. He had been hotly pursued in free agency by several clubs including the Bucs, and owner Dan Galbreath had even invited Rose to his Columbus home & the Darby Dan stables in Lexington. The Pirates admitted that their cash offer was half that of the Phillies, and their equine lure fell short. Rose had told the Pittsburgh Press a week earlier that “The Galbreaths may offer me a couple of horses, but in the end it will come down to dollars and cents.” 
Enrique Romo 1982 Topps
  • 1978 - Pitchers Enrique Romo and Rick Jones along with shortstop Tom McMillan were sent to the Pirates by Seattle, which got pitchers Rafael Vasquez, Odell Jones and shortstop Mario Mendoza in return. Romo pitched four years for the Pirates (1979-82) pretty effectively, going 25-16-26/3.56 and was part of the 1979 World Series club. Romo only tossed six seasons total in the MLB, but with good reason - he started late. He pitched 11 seasons in Mexican baseball prior to making his major league debut for the Mariners in 1977 at the age of 29. McMillan and Jones both ended up minor league players. Jones tossed six more years, including a brief 1981 return to Pittsburgh, Mendoza played for four more seasons and Vasquez appeared in nine 1979 games for Seattle, which proved to be his MLB career. 
  • 1978 - The Pittsburgh Press published a rumor mill report that the Pirates had offered the Red Sox Jerry Reuss for Andy Hassler. That swap fell through, but the Bucs came up roses when they traded the lefty to LA in April of 1979 for Rick Rhoden and then signed Hassler as a free agent to work the 1980 campaign. 
  • 1990 - The Atlanta Braves signed Bucco free agent 1B Sid Bream to a three year/$5.6M contract. The Pirates reportedly offered three years/$4.5M, but aside from the financial gap, the FO was leery of Sid’s knees plus Bream wanted a no-trade clause. Manager Jim Leyland was a fan of his, and told the Pittsburgh Press that “I just feel terrible that he left. I think it was a mistake not signing him...I’m not looking at this like we lost Babe Ruth. But he stood for something,” referring to Bream’s All-American demeanor helping to restore the Pirates image after the drug scandals. The heir-apparent at first was bench bat Carmelo Martinez going into camp, but he lost the job to Orlando Merced. 
Joe Lonnett 1977 Pirates promo
  • 2011 - Pirates coach Joe Lonnett, 87, passed away in Beaver Falls after battling Alzheimer's Disease. Joe, who spent four years in MLB, met future Bucco manager Chuck Tanner in 1957 on a barnstorming tour. The two were about the same age, born 25 miles apart (Lonnett in Beaver Falls, Tanner in New Castle) and hit it off. Chuck told him that if he made it as a manger, he’d call. Tanner did both and Joe was with him beginning in 1971 at Chicago, Oakland and Pittsburgh (1977-84). Lonnett handled third base and as an ex-catcher tutored Ed Ott and Steve Nicosia. After Tanner left Pittsburgh, Joe dabbled a little in managing at the lower levels and then spent his later years as a scout and roving instructor for Pittsburgh and Toronto. He was inducted into the Beaver County Sports Hall of Fame in 1980.

          A Lost Thing Finding Itself Jazz at Lincoln Center      Cache   Translate Page      

Origin stories may not always represent a complete truth, but they do give people something to hold on to. What defines the origin of Jazz at Lincoln Center, which has just started its 31st season, is the need to prove itself. In 1986, the board of Lincoln Center issued a report that said, “Lincoln Center should focus on excellence in its core offerings and that no compelling case can be made for adding a new constituent in an area like jazz.” Three years earlier, Alina Bloomgarden, then director of visitor services, brought the idea of a permanent jazz program to the center’s president. “I submitted three proposals between 1983 and 1987,” Bloomgarden recounted. “My first two proposals were rejected; some thought jazz audiences would be rowdy(!).”

When the board finally gave its tepid approval, Bloomgarden invited Marsalis to help her plan a summer concert series. The incipient jazz program had to demonstrate its commercial viability as well as the merits of the music and, it seems, the community from which it comes. The first three concerts, in August 1987, celebrated women in jazz (Betty Carter, Sasha Daltonn, Marian McPartland and others), the pianist and composer Thelonious Monk, and the saxophonist Charlie Parker.

The founders of JALC believed that the stakes were high — not just for the music but also for the life of the country. By the late Eighties, many of jazz’s greatest innovators had died; jazz clubs were shutting down; most colleges and universities had yet to form jazz-studies programs; and some warned that the increasing popularity of electronic instruments, and the commercial aspirations that came with them, threatened the identity of the music. At the same time, the limitations of the civil rights movement were becoming more widely apparent; some schools, workplaces and neighborhoods may have been desegregated, but the country was hardly integrated. AIDS was ravaging American cities, giving many people a new excuse to demonstrate their disdain for others. The Cold War and its end gave a boost to militarization and globalization. And Reagan’s intensification of the War on Drugs precipitated the period of modern mass incarceration.

Not nearly of American society, but certainly of jazz, Wynton Marsalis was considered to be a savior. The stories about Marsalis reprised the ones told about Miles Davis in the Fifties and anticipated the ones told today about musicians like Kamasi Washington or Robert Glasper — that he would return artistic seriousness and market viability to a genre that had lost its way. But unlike those contemporary musicians, and like Miles, Marsalis radiated a brashness that all but dared critics to reject the savior mythology.

Marsalis’s own sense of what he was saving is recorded in “The New Orleans Function” (1989), a three-part suite styled after the city’s funeral marches, which is, in a way, a musical extension of Bechet’s origin story. The second part, a song called “Premature Autopsies (Sermon),” features an impassioned oration written by the critic Stanley Crouch and delivered by Reverend Jeremiah Wright. In addition to offering testimony to the profundity of jazz as art, Wright’s address, set to life-giving music, can be read as an assessment of American society and as a statement of purpose for Marsalis. Under the guidance of mentors like Crouch and Albert Murray (who was also involved in the founding of JALC), Marsalis had come to understand the possibilities for American culture held within the music. And so the sermon can also be read as a statement of purpose for what would become Jazz at Lincoln Center:

It is possible that we who listened heard something timeless from those who are the descendants of the many who were literally up for sale — those whose presence on the auction blocks and in the slave quarters formed the cross upon which the Constitution of this nation was crucified. Yet — even after that crucifixion, there were those who rose in the third century of American slavery with a vision of freedom.

There were those who lit the mighty wick that extended from the candle — and carried it. There were those who spoke through music of the meaning of light — those who were not content to accept the darkness in the heart that comes when you surrender to dragons who think themselves grand. There were those who said, “Listen closely, now” — those who said, “If you give me a fair chance, I will help you better understand the meaning of democracy.” Yes — that is precisely what they said. “If you give me a fair chance, I will help you better understand the meaning of democracy.” These are they who were truly the makers of a noble sound.

A chance, perhaps one fair enough, was given. After two summers of the concert series, Gordon Davis, a member of the Lincoln Center board at the time, advocated for a new committee to reconsider forming a permanent jazz program. In 1990, the board finally agreed to deepen its commitment by instituting Jazz at Lincoln Center as a funded department. Then, in 1996, ten years after its initial denial, the board voted to elevate Jazz at Lincoln Center to full constituency, joining the City Ballet, the Metropolitan Opera, and the other houses dedicated to European arts.

The leaders of JALC quickly undertook the construction of a facility designed specifically for the acoustics of swing- and blues-oriented jazz, one that could also accommodate the institution’s educational and archival pursuits. During the construction of Frederick P. Rose Hall at Columbus Circle, which cost $131 million, Lisa Schiff, the board’s chairperson, explained their fundraising strategy in just one word: “Wynton.” As part of his strategy, Marsalis performed with popular musicians outside of the jazz world like Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon and Bob Dylan. (As David Yaffe wrote in 2005, “Marsalis’s insistence on laying down the iron law of swing with rock and R&B icons added a rich tension to their performances.”)

Each accomplishment for JALC has brought a new set of challenges, and the building and operation of its own facility proved no different. JALC has often been criticized for its high ticket prices, but to its credit, it provides a set of offerings that extends far beyond the concert stage. These include pre-concert lectures, which are free but poorly advertised; live streaming of all concerts, which is also free; educational programming for people of all ages; and maintaining an archive of written compositions. These are JALC’s efforts to put Wright’s sermon — “I will help you better understand the meaning of democracy” — into institutional action. And yet, when Americans discuss how to address our deepest problems, how to steer this lost thing, we tend not to look to the arts, let alone to jazz, for guidance.

One can arrive at a more meaningful understanding of JALC and what it has offered the country by considering an institution that is often described as something of its antithesis: the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM), which was founded in Chicago in 1965 and borrowed much of its thinking from the black cultural nationalism of the period. Originality, or the sense of it, guided almost everything AACM members did. Even though the first generation of AACM members was greatly influenced by swing and bebop, some of its members sought to distance themselves from that lineage by calling their music “Great Black Music” rather than “jazz,” a term that’s inescapably unoriginal. In the book A Power Stronger Than Itself, the trombonist and AACM member George E. Lewis quotes the saxophonist Roscoe Mitchell describing the aesthetic vision for his album Sound (1966), AACM’s first recording: “Sound is a composition that deals, like I say, with sound, and the musicians are free to make any sound they think will do, any sound that they hear at a particular time. That could be like somebody who felt like stomping on the floor … well, he would stomp on the floor.”

Lewis also recounts how such a relationship to sound and freedom manifested at AACM performances: “At a Roscoe Mitchell Art Ensemble event in December 1966, Lester Bowie opened the event by stalking across the stage wielding a shotgun. Later, drummer Leonard Smith danced with an oversized Raggedy Ann doll, accompanied by Malachi Favors’s banjo. Another performance saw Favors wearing bells on his ankles and stripes painted on his face.” (The JALC Orchestra members wear matching suits and ties for their performances.)

The AACM’s notion of artistic originality accords with its ideal of cooperative self-determination: the group initially relied exclusively on membership dues for funding, presented and marketed its own concerts, and made decisions about almost everything by majority vote. In addition to being an incubator for original music, the AACM, like JALC, made education and community development essential parts of its mission. And perhaps in this way, in the name of its own radicalism, the AACM could be said to be even more steadfast than JALC. Its strong anti-corporatist beliefs have prevented the organization from securing the sort of endowment that JALC enjoys.

Even though the AACM has been described as a radical, black-nationalist organization, its main concern has been with showing the way, through its music and its institutional example, toward equality and greater freedom for everyone. As Muhal Richard Abrams, the AACM’s founding president, put it, the organization operated from the idea that they were “helping ourselves up to the point where we can participate in the universal aspect of things, which includes all people.” Indeed, although their aesthetic sensibilities have taken the institutions in different directions, both AACM and JALC embody and extend theories for cultural change that attempt to deal with the damage done by racialized exclusion, discrimination and poverty.

But by prioritizing originality, sometimes at the expense of discernible meaning, the AACM is an example of how the artistic innovations we call “radical” can play out in counterintuitive ways. Artistic and social movements that have been labeled as radical often exhibit a functional conservatism — an inward-looking posture that is inflexible in the face of challenge or change. Conversely, what Jazz at Lincoln Center does has radical potential by way of the very same attributes that critics call conservative or misguided. For instance, when the location for Rose Hall was determined, many people scoffed at its placement within a high-end shopping mall at Columbus Circle, and perceived its isolation from the main Lincoln Center campus four blocks to the north to be a slight. But there may be no more appropriate location: nestled within a house of consumerism, JALC showcases the music born from a freedom struggle, one that encourages both players and listeners to reach for higher ideals.

For the AACM, freedom is achieved by shaking off restrictions (“an awakening,” as Abrams put it); for JALC, freedom is achieved through mastery of tradition and form — within limitations. In a 2002 interview with the pianist Ethan Iverson, and after a brief and positive discussion of the AACM, Marsalis elaborated on his thinking regarding the label “jazz.”

Everything can’t be it, if only because you can’t teach it to other people.

That’s a very pragmatic way to look at it. If I take my kid out here and say, “Everything that you do is basketball,” I can’t teach him how to play. You apply that to any field. You’re going to have a problem teaching people, if you don’t have a meaning. It’s great for you if you can realize something that intensely broad. But you’re going to have trouble with your next generation. Because to learn everything is hard.

And if there’s no standard of excellence, the most competitive students will not want to play. … The thing about conservatism is the comfort of numbers. Everybody agrees.

The tension between the “radicalism” that gets associated with the AACM and the “conservatism” that gets associated with JALC is akin to the academic and art-world debates between postmodernism and modernism. The AACM’s version of postmodernism eschews any notion of universal standards of excellence or of truth and beauty, often because those standards have been associated with white supremacy; for Marsalis and JALC, those standards may have historically been associated with white supremacy, but mostly what they’ve done is given shape to the cultural inheritance all Americans carry, and provided an opportunity for transcendence, or progress — by way of honest confrontation and mastery of form.

In January 2018, Jazz at Lincoln Center hosted an event with the magazine JazzTimes called the Jazz Congress — something like an academic conference for the jazz community, with panels about urgent issues and practicalities like audience development and digital marketing. The first panel discussion was titled “Jazz and Race: A Conversation,” a moderated talk between Marsalis and Iverson. Marsalis, wearing a gray double-breasted suit and dark tie, began the discussion by speaking from prepared notes:

I want to start by saying something about “black.” “Black” is not anthropological. That’s the first thing I want to clarify. It’s social and it’s political. … Race in our country is a stand-in for a dominant culture to create a permanent underclass to be exploited for social reasons, for rituals, for sacrifice and for economics. … Jazz music refutes the construct of sectarianism, which is used to divide and conquer people. It is itself a refutation of that. This is what I’ve learned. I grew up in black nationalism, in black power, which is itself a construct. The most difficult thing to do is to go deeper than whatever everything around you told you was true and the reality you could see. Because there’s another reality inside of another reality. And jazz symbolically is a unifier — that’s what it is. It is the result of hybridization of cultures.

That Marsalis gave this sort of introduction to the conversation is notable for its difference, in tone and groundedness, from more common public discussions about race, which often jump straight into tallying representation and assessing power on a who’s-up-who’s-down basis. The facile equation of representation, in the sense of visibility, and power, while not unimportant, is symptomatic of our fixation on high drama and our desire for easy solutions. It ignores the power, beauty and potential that “have-nots” actually possess, and those hard-earned qualities that the “haves” may lack — the cultural resources to make sense of and counterstate the pain inflicted by those systemic abuses.

Most crucially, against a society that continually confuses the two, Marsalis is almost always explicit about the difference between race and culture, between what is taken to be intractable and what we can change. Marsalis’s bold position — that the differences we give life to aren’t essential or determinative differences at all — relies on a lesson he learned from Albert Murray. “Identity is best defined in terms of culture,” Murray wrote in his 1970 book The Omni-Americans. “American culture, even in its most rigidly segregated precincts, is patently and irrevocably composite. … Indeed, for all their traditional antagonisms and obvious differences, the so-called black and so-called white people of the United States resemble nobody else in the world so much as they resemble each other.”

By contrast, when, during the second meeting of the AACM, the (“white”) pianist Bob Dogan asked, “You mean that if someone is a certain race then they can’t come into the group,” Abrams replied:

I mean that we are going to have to decide whether we will have an interracial group or not. Being frank about it, when we started we didn’t intend to have an interracial group. Not as opposed to another race, but we made it on the premise that each has his own, up to a certain height. Then, the collaboration and contact with the other races or body takes place. …This is not opposed to white musicians. We know that we clearly have economic, social and other obligations to ourselves because of our positions as black musicians. We’ve been lacking a lot of things, and we have to bring up ourselves.

After further debate, no affirmative group decision was made, but Abrams’s position became the de facto position of the AACM. Such a stance, even if it doesn’t represent the highest ideals, is understandable in the context of American life in 1965. And yet the hybrid nature of American culture stubbornly presented itself; over time, the AACM’s orbit expanded to include people outside of its initial vision of itself — whether in the form of artistic collaborations (as with John Cage and with concert stops in France and Germany), performing space provided by the University of Chicago, or financial support from the National Endowment for the Arts, which was hard-won and fraught with discriminatory practices.

How much carbon monoxide are you in when in any motor vehicle?

Did you know that many people do not measure the air they breathe.

After prevention there is no greater awareness than measurement.
Awareness leads to quick thinking. Measurement leads to quick action.

Are you in the know?

Do I know enough about carbon monoxide and carbon monoxide poisoning to justify never knowing how much is in the air I breathe every day, everywhere I go?”

There are some people who want to be notified of the presence of carbon monoxide at levels or concentrations as soon as the gas is present, at concentrations well below those that can instigate poor health symptoms but not be high enough levels to sound the CO alarm they own.

There are some people who do not want to push a button on their CO alarm to see what low, aggravating levels of the poison might be in their home, or anywhere.

What is in the air you are breathing right now?

What will you be doing today; walking into poison?
Who will be responsible for the air you breathe?
You may be the only person who can prevent your own poisoning.
We are all vulnerable to carbon monoxide exposure and poisoning.
Everyone has been poisoned by CO and will be poisoned again. The degree of the poisoning depends upon allowing yourself to be in a situation where someone else controls the air you breathe and the mechanisms for alarming notification.

Please read the alarm information on the package and in the instructions that come with the carbon monoxide alarm. Know that if it is a U.L. 2034 Listed product (or CSA 6.19 Listed), it is a high level alarm that has been tested to alarm no sooner than 70 PPM at the lowest (the alarm must resist for one hour when above this level) and when over 400 PPM before 15 minutes at the highest concentration, after resisting alarming for 4 minutes when over this level.

Know when your fire department and emergency responders begin wearing their breathing apparatus and what their civilian evacuation levels are for carbon monoxide; it may be as soon as the gas is present in your presence. Pregnant women, infants & children, people with heart & respiratory struggles, those suffering depression or chronic headaches and all people of vulnerable health should be alerted as soon as the gas begins to concentrate, around 10 PPM (parts per million) or lower.

You most likely need a low level carbon monoxide detector to sound off when carbon monoxide hazards are just beginning, not after you’ve been exposed to levels that make you have headaches, flu-like symptoms, increased tiredness, heart stresses or worse.

Do not take risks with carbon monoxide. Take responsibility for the air you breathe and the combustion systems you are responsible for. If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for others, unless you think $45.00, high level protection is good enough.

Help prevent injuries and deaths; don’t guess about carbon monoxide. Measure carbon monoxide for safety and knowledge. The more you test the more you learn. GET BUSY

          The Border As A Gathering Place      Cache   Translate Page      
Commentary: A couple of weekends ago, I drove to the Pink Store in Palomas, Mexico, directly across the border from Columbus, New Mexico, to search for some Mexican yard pottery and Christmas gifts. For those of you who have not been to either border city, Columbus has a population of approximately 1,800 people, and Palomas has a population of approximately 5,000 people. Why, you ask, would I drive to such a remote border crossing to purchase items that I could procure in larger cities such as Las Cruces or El Paso? Two reasons – first, I wanted to check the progress on the $85.6 million-dollar reconstruction of the Columbus Port of Entry; and second, I love going to this area because even though it is small from a population standpoint, it is a microcosm of the U.S.-Mexico border. The reconstruction of the Columbus Port of Entry is progressing nicely. The port facilities are modern and have some nifty architectural touches. On my way back from Palomas, I drove smoothly through the

          Roger Stone is taking the Fifth, likely a signal to Trump and House Democrats. Noted.      Cache   Translate Page      

Roger Stone didn't have to take the Fifth in response to a request from the ranking Democratic member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California. It wasn't a subpoena and Feinstein doesn't have subpoena power anyway. So Stone could have just declined to cooperate with the Senator's invitation to appear before the panel and provide documents related to 2016 Russian interference. But someone seems to be feeling a tad ballsy these days. In rejecting Feinstein's request, Stone's lawyer accused Feinstein of going on a "fishing expedition" that was "far too overbroad, far too overreaching, far too wide ranging."

"The production of documents that may be responsive to the unreasonably broad scope of the imprecise, fishing expedition, request would unquestionably be a testimonial act protected by the U.S. Constitution," wrote Grant Smith in a letter dated Dec. 3. "The United States Supreme Court has held that the production of documents is subject to Fifth Amendment protection."

While that may be true, according to former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti, pleading the Fifth on document production is very rare.

But whatever the case, Stone's move appears to be more a matter of signal sending than one of pure substance. First, he and Trump are engaging in a classic call and response tactic, with Trump praising Stone in a tweet also sent Dec. 3 as having "guts" for refusing to testify against him. Second, Stone is likely letting House Democrats know what he plans to do next year should he ultimately be subpoenaed to appear before any committees on the House side.

          Columbus Mayor announces future plans for Crew SC and MAPFRE stadium       Cache   Translate Page      

COLUMBUS - Columbus and Franklin County officials provided an update Wednesday morning on the purchase of Columbus Crew SC and detailed plans for MAPFRE Stadium.

The city said the families of Cleveland Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam and Dr. Peter Edwards have been working to complete the purchase of the team by the end of the year.

The new ownership, along with city and county officials, are working on a Memorandum of Understand (MOU) to solidify details of the sale, a new soccer stadium and repurposing of MAPFRE Stadium.

The city has committed funds for infrastructure and land for the new stadium as well as the county.

Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther announced the proposal includes moving Crew SC’s practice facility to MAPFRE Stadium once the new stadium is complete.

Additional, MAPFRE Stadium will be turned into the Columbus Community Sports Park, a shared-use center with an indoor soccer field and basketball courts as well as outdoor athletic fields.

“We are excited about the possibilities of new ownership of the Columbus Crew and all that will bring to the City. Part of that plan must include reimagining the existing stadium, so we are investing in a community sports complex that will serve the people of Columbus,” said Mayor Ginther. “Nearly 200,000 residents live within three miles of this location. It will benefit residents of all ages and strengthen the connection between the soccer club and the City.”

“This multi-sport community athletic facility is going to be a jewel in our community, and such a great feature in the lives of our residents,” said Franklin County Commissioner Marilyn Brown. “It’s exciting to be a part of the creation of a lasting piece of infrastructure in this neighborhood, and to help find new purpose for such an iconic stadium.”

“We are on the verge of doing the impossible – saving the Crew in a very creative way and helping so many areas of Columbus through public-private partnerships,” said Alex Fischer, CEO of the Columbus Partnership. “It is the Columbus Way, and it will be a model for professional sports and communities for years to come.”

“It is important to Council that we show clear benefit to residents and nearby neighborhoods, that we are not leaving such an iconic building sit empty, and that we engage the public in a vision to build new sports facilities that we can be proud of for years to come. This proposal meets those goals, and we appreciate the hard work of so many partners in the public and private sector,” said Council President Shannon Hardin.

Councilmember Elizabeth Brown who chairs the finance committee for City Council, said, “The most important part of saving the Crew is the benefit it brings to our city and its residents. The Columbus Community Sports Park exemplifies that commitment.”

A public hearing regarding the MOU is scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday, December 6, 2018, in Council Chambers. Council is expected to take up the MOU at the Council meeting on December 10, 2018.


          Former Ohio State dive coach pleads not guilty to charges of sexual battery, pandering       Cache   Translate Page      

COLUMBUS – William Bohonyi Jr. stood quietly as a prosecutor announced the charges against him - three counts of sexual battery and one count of pandering sexually explicit material involving a minor.

Prosecutors allege that Bohonyi groomed and coerced an underage diver into a sexual relationship in 2014 while he was an assistant coach and she was a member of The Ohio State’s dive club. The pandering charge, prosecutors said, stems from Bohonyi asking that the underage diver to record one of their sexual acts.

His attorney entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.

“The defendant was 28 at the time and engaged in a consensual sexual relationship with a high schooler who was part of the OSU dive club. He was one of the coaches. And so it is the nature of the relationship and the temporary or occasional disciplinary control that makes it an illegal act,” said assistant prosecutor Jennifer Rausch.

After learning of the relationship, The Ohio State University fired Bohonyi in August of 2014 for violating the university’s sexual harassment policy that bans relationships between university faculty or staff and students – especially when there is an element of coaching or counseling involved.

The underage diver, Estee Pryor, has spoken with 10 Investigates on several occasions. On Friday, she said she felt “vindicated” after learning that Bohonyi had been indicted and turned himself into the Franklin County Jail. Pryor referred questions Wednesday to her attorneys.

Pryor went to university police in 2014 but later asked that they not pursue the case. She told 10 Investigates in August that she went back to them in four years later. The case was re-opened in January of this year and presented to the prosecutor’s office. A grand jury returned an indictment against Bohonyi on Friday.

Bohonyi’s attorney, Brad Koffel, told reporter Wednesday afternoon that “This was just strictly, a lawful questionable relationship - but not illegal."

Koffel also said that while Bohonyi and Pryor were both associated with The Ohio State Dive Club, he argued that Bohonyi was not in a position of her authority or Pryor’s direct coach.

When pressed on this, Koffel said: “He had no direction, supervision, he couldn't put her on the team, take her off the team, discipline her. Couldn't show her how to do particular dives. He was one step above from being the lifeguard.”

10 Investigates found a document from 2014 in which university investigators said that “Mr. Bohonyi stated that he has had coaching responsibilities over (Pryor) for two years."

10 Investigates reached back out to Koffel late Wednesday afternoon. He said he still contends that Bohonyi did not have a direct coaching authority over Pryor and that he was aware of the statements Will made four years ago.


          Columbus Division of Fire K9 passes away unexpectedly      Cache   Translate Page      

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Columbus Division of Fire is mourning the loss of an arson K9.

K9 Baxter passed way from natural causes on November 27 after collapsing suddenly after retrieving a frisbee, the department said in a release.

Baxter worked with K9 handler Lew Smith and the pair would exercise at Berliner Sports Park before their shifts at Fire Station 3.

“Baxter died while doing what he loved best, which was playing Frisbee,” Smith said.

Baxter graduated from the Columbus Division of Fire’s accelerant program in June 2017.

The three-year-old black lab from North Carolina was trained by the Columbus Division of Fire K9 program and certified by the State of Ohio 18 months ago.

“It was just so sudden. I was shocked, naturally. But I can’t imagine a happier way to go. He was a rescue dog, not quite a pure breed. My wife says his 18 months with us was surely the happiest days of his life,” said Smith.

Smith will bring back his former partner, K9 Paz out of retirement to resume his duties once he is recertified.

“Whenever I would work with Baxter at home, Paz would watch and try and jump in. He’s a little heavier now, but he’s steady. He knows the game, though he works at a more relaxed pace, unlike a younger dog,” said Smith.

The Division of Fire has two K9s trained in detecting explosives and one dog, Paz, who is trained to detect accelerants at fire scenes.

The search for a new dog is underway, according to the department.

          Dwayne Haskins receives top offensive honor on AP All-Big Ten team      Cache   Translate Page      

Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. is the offensive player of the year and Michigan linebacker Devin Bush is defensive player of the year on The Associated Press All-Big Ten Conference team released Wednesday.

Freshman receiver Rondale Moore of Purdue was voted newcomer of the year, and Northwestern's Pat Fitzgerald was named coach of the year after leading the Wildcats to the Big Ten championship game for the first time.

Michigan had seven players on the first team, including five from the nation's top-ranked defense. Wisconsin had five first-team picks and conference champion Ohio State had three.

Haskins, in his first year as a starter, set Big Ten records and leads the nation with 4,580 passing yards and 47 touchdown passes. He passed for more than 300 yards in nine games, including five games with better than 400 yards.

Bush has been a disruptive force for Michigan, leading the team with 80 tackles and ranking second from his linebacker position in sacks (five) and tackles for loss (9.5).

Moore occupied two spots, as a wide receiver and all-purpose player. Moore's 103 receptions are most in the nation and second-most in a season by a Big Ten player, and his 1,164 receiving yards lead the conference. Moore also rushed for 203 yards on 18 carries and returned punts and kicks for the Boilermakers.

Four of Wisconsin's five first-team picks are repeat selections — running back Jonathan Taylor, offensive linemen Michael Deiter and Beau Benzschawel and linebacker T.J. Edwards. Taylor was a unanimous choice. Ohio State defensive lineman Dre'Mont Jones also made the first team for the second straight year.

Fitzgerald, Northwestern's 13th-year coach, led the Wildcats to an 8-1 record in Big Ten play, matching the best mark in program history. They went 0-3 in nonconference play and had to overcome a spate of injuries to win their first West Division title.

The All-Big Ten team was selected by 27 writers and broadcasters who cover the conference.

          Baby giraffe dies at Columbus Zoo following complications with birth      Cache   Translate Page      

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium announced the death of a giraffe calf on Tuesday.

The zoo said Cami, the mother, showed signs of labor around 3 p.m.

As the labor progressed, it became clear the rear hooves of the calf were coming out first.

The zoo said it is rare for calves to survive when they are born with their rear hooves first.

The loss of the calf on Tuesday follows the death of another calf, Ubumwe, last month.

During the labor on Tuesday, the zoo's animal care team and an animal surgeon from the Ohio State University attempted to manually get the calf out but were not successful.

An emergency Cesarean section was performed at approximately 8 p.m.

The zoo said Cesarean sections in giraffes are extremely rare and are used as a last resort because of the high risks involved.

The veterinary team found that the calf had serious congenital defects and would not have survived even if it was born with its front hooves first.

Cami's condition is stable but the zoo said her prognosis remains guarded. She will continue to be monitored.

Cami, a 6-year-old Masai giraffe, came to the Columbus Zoo in 2013 from Nashville.

The father, Enzi, is 8 years old and also arrived at the zoo in 2013. He was previously at the Wilds and the Toledo Zoo.

“The loss of any animal is heartbreaking to the Columbus Zoo’s devoted animal care and animal health teams, particularly two whose births were as anticipated as these giraffe calves’," said Columbus Zoo and Aquarium President/CEO Tom Stalf.

"Despite the sad outcome, I am proud of our caring professionals for the great measures they took to try to save both Ubumwe, as well as Cami’s calf. Many animals, including giraffe calves, are extremely vulnerable when they are born—both in their native range and in human care. While we certainly understand the potential challenges, our team remains proactive, vigilant, and prepared to assist Cami however necessary. We are grateful for both the outpouring of support from giraffe fans around the world, as well as from our professional conservation community, as we continue our commitment to working to protect the future of wildlife."

There have been 19 giraffes born at the Columbus Zoo before Cami's calf on Tuesday and Zuri's calf last month.

          Hondureña de la caravana migrante da a luz tras saltar muro fronterizo      Cache   Translate Page      

La Prensa

Estados UnidosJusto cuando escalaba el muro fronterizo entre México y Estados Unidos la hondureña Maryuri Serrano (19), quien era parte de la caravana migrante, comenzó con dolores de labor de parto.

"Siempre estuve segura de que mi bebé nacería en EEUU", dijo Serrano.

La joven quien viajaba con su esposo, Miguel Ortiz y su primer hijo de dos años, dio a luz a otro varón en un hospital en el estado de San Diego.

Este pequeño, a quien llamaron Michael y quien a penas tiene una semana de vida, es el primer bebé de la caravana nacido en EEUU, así lo informa Univisión en una entrevista que le realizó a la pareja de hondureños.

Además lea: Nace la primera niña en la caravana de migrantes que se dirige hacia EEUUA pesar del avanzado estado de embarazo de Serrano decidieron emprender juntos la travesía desde Honduras en busca del sueño americano.

El camino no fue la fácil para esta familia quienes incluso caminaron largas horas para llegar hasta la frontera.

"Cuando logramos escalar el muro llegaron de inmediato los agentes de migración y nos querían obligar a regresar porque no creían que Maryuri tenía dolores", dijo Ortiz.

Los llevaron a un centro de detención en San Diego, pero al ver que la joven sí estaba a punto de dar a luz los trasladaron a un hospital para que recibiera la asistencia oportuna.

También: Desesperados migrantes saltan el muro en Tijuana y se entregan a la Patrulla FronterizaSin embargo, tres días después de que nació Michael los regresaron al centro de detención junto con el bebé.

"Aunque fue difícil valió la pena todo el sacrificio que hicimos porque mi pequeño está bien", comentó Serrano.

Actualmente la pareja de hondureños se encuentran alojados en la casa de una familia en San Diego quienes les han brindado un techo mientras consiguen dinero para viajar a Columbus, Ohio en donde tienen parientes.

Staff were excellent and enthused. Grounds were superb. bathrooms and showers were new and therefore very clean! Sites were well situated and comfortable. The campground was quiet at night and one could see the stars for light years. Laundry needs some upkeep. I despise coming into laundries where the lids have not been cleaned for months. When looking down move the tub and you will notice lots of guck on the rim. Clean washer are a critical success factor for customer satisfaction. However, I have been to two Thousand Trails since purchasing my passes a month ago and they both had laundries that were less than satisfactory. We do our wash so the clothes are clean. The lids need to reflect the attention to detail necessary for customers to feel their clothes are clean.
