Following a disappointing 5-7 season in 2019, the Horned Frogs drew national attention in the 2020 NFL draft with its largest draft class since 2016. The Frogs led the Big 12 with five players picked (sixth nationally) and tied with Oklahoma for the most first round picks with two, marking the first time TCU has had two first round draft picks since 1939.Following the draft, five more players were signed as undrafted free agents. The lack of training camp and preseason games because of COVID-19 made the former Frogs’ transition to the NFL unique. As the season progressed, several of them were still able to make a real impact. Let’s take a look at how their seasons went. Jalen Reagor – Wide Receiver (Round: 1 Pick: 21 – Philadelphia Eagles)Reagor stepped into a depleted Eagles’ receiving core and was able to earn playing time right off the bat. Soon after, he missed five games after being placed on injured reserve due to a torn ligament in his thumb. In his first season as a pro, the former TCU wideout played in 11 total games and made 31 catches for 396 yards and a touchdown. Reagor also showed the NFL he can be a special teams threat with a 73-yard punt return for a touchdown against the Packers. In his three seasons as a Horned Frog, Reagor had 3,296 all-purpose yards and 24 touchdowns, two of which were punt returns. The Waxahachie native was also the earliest Frog drafted since TCU legend LaDainian Tomlinson, who was drafted fifth overall in 2001.Jalen Reagor with a HUGE punt return TD for the Eagles (via @NFL)pic.twitter.com/lKVQfZHEdf— FanDuel (@FanDuel) December 7, 2020Jeff Gladney – Cornerback (Round: 1 Pick: 31 – Minnesota Vikings)Gladney anchored TCU’s secondary during his years in college, and even his earliest moments in Minnesota gave him the opportunity to do the same on the pro level. Injuries in the Vikings’ secondary gave Gladney an opportunity to see the field more than originally expected, and he did not disappoint. He played in all 16 games this season, recording 81 tackles, 3 passes defended and a forced fumble. His playing time came mostly as a slot corner and he exceeded expectations at one of the hardest positions to play as a rookie. In college, Gladney totaled 146 tackles, 38 passes defended and five interceptions in four seasons as one of Pro Football Focus’s top-rated cornerbacks. His selection following Reagor’s marked the first time the Horned Frogs had multiple first round draft picks since 1939. Nice play by Jeff Gladney to get through the block and slow down Shenault, #Vikings defense holds pic.twitter.com/OeGk6n13Fd— Sean Borman (@SeanBormanNFL) December 6, 2020Ross Blacklock – Defensive tackle (Round: 2 Pick: 40 – Houston Texans) In his rookie campaign, Blacklock served as a rotational defensive lineman for the Texans. He played in 15 games and recorded 14 total tackles. With the recent release of long time Texan J.J. Watt, Blacklock looks to play a much bigger role on a Houston defense that ranked 30th in the league last year. As a Frog, Blacklock recorded 67 tackles and 5.5 sacks in two seasons, anchoring TCU’s defensive line and earning him First Team Big 12 honors in 2019. Ross Blacklock makes a move to get to the quarterback in TCU’s 3OT loss to No. 7 Baylor in 2019. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer) Lucas Niang – Offensive Tackle (Round: 3 Pick: 96 – Kansas City Chiefs)Drafted in the third round by the defending Super Bowl champions, Niang decided to opt out of his rookie season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The New Canaan, Connecticut, native is capable of playing both guard and tackle, which will give him a better chance to see the field next season. While in college, he did not allow a sack in the 19 games he started during his junior and senior years. Vernon Scott – Safety (Round: 7 Pick: 236 – Green Bay Packers)  An unexpected late round pick, Scott impressed the Packers in training camp and ended up playing in 13 games as a backup in the Green Bay secondary. This season, the former Frog had 13 tackles and a sack. Scott was the only rookie Frog that made the playoffs, even seeing some playing time in the National Football Conference divisional round against the Los Angeles Rams. As a Frog, Scott was a big-play threat on the three turnovers he forced, one of which was a 98-yard interception return for a touchdown.Undrafted Free AgentsOf the five TCU players signed as undrafted free agents, none recorded any stats in the 2020 season. Running backs Sewo Olonilua and Darius Anderson were both signed by the Dallas Cowboys, and while Olonilua is now on their active roster, Anderson currently has a reserves/futures contract with the Indianapolis Colts. Offensive guard Cordel Iwuagwu was signed by the Houston Texans, and he is now on the Cleveland Browns’ reserves/futures list. Offensive tackle Anthony McKinney was picked up by the Tennessee Titans, but he opted out of the season before training camp because of COVID-19. Wide receiver TreVontae Hights was signed by the Carolina Panthers and released shortly after.  Braden Rouxhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/braden-roux/ TCU has isolation rooms for students with COVID-19center_img TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jalen Reagor (18) eludes the grasp of Arizona Cardinals linebacker Dennis Gardeck during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Dec. 20, 2020, in Glendale, Ariz.

California cities accounted for four of the top 10 slots in LendingTree’s report, but none of them managed to claim the top spot—that honor went to Virginia Beach, Virginia.To discovery which parts of the country were most fond of reverse mortgages, LendingTree looked at five years’ worth of data (2012 – 2017) drawn from the Federal Housing Authority’s Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) program. According to LendingTree, they then “compared the number of HECM to the number of homeowners more than 60 years old and calculated a ratio of how many reverse mortgages originated per 1,000 homeowners in the 100 largest cities. Eligibility for the HECM reverse mortgage begins at age 62.”LendingTree’s research determined that HECMs originated in the 100 studied cities at an average rate of 7.1 loans per 1,000 homeowners over the age of 60. The top city, Virginia Beach, boasted a rate of 13.8 loans per 1,000 homeowners over the age of 60. On the other end of the spectrum, the lowest-rated city, Pittsfield, Massachusetts, came in at a considerably lower rate—0.3 loans per 1,000 over-60 homeowners.After Virginia Beach, the rest of the top 10 cities for reverse mortgage volume included Denver, Colorado; Riverside, California; Sacramento, California; Reno, Nevada; Las Vegas, Nevada; Austin, Texas; San Francisco, California; El Paso, Texas; and San Diego, California.As LendingTree Chief Economist Tendayi Kapfidze explains, “Prices in the four California cities … increased 9 percent in the third quarter in 2017 from the same time last year, well above the national average of 6 percent. Over the years, sustained appreciation has left these homeowners with ample equity to access in retirement years.”The U.S. cities where older Americans are embracing reverse mortgages the least include Pittsfield, Massachusetts; Wichita Falls, Texas; Toledo, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan; Youngstown, Ohio; Madison, Wisconsin; Providence, Rhode Island; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Cleveland, Ohio; and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.“These Rust Belt locales have not experienced sustained periods of robust home price appreciation and homeowners may not have accumulated a level of home equity to take out reverse mortgages,” Kapfidze said. “The colder weather in these states could also mean homeowners are more likely to move to warmer climates for retirement, whereas in a state like California, homeowners who have accumulated equity may be inclined to stay for the quality of life.”You can read the full LendingTree report by clicking here.

How has the landscape of the housing industry changed during that time? In this piece, DS News will walk you through the key legislation and nominations that have impacted the industry since January 2017.The Big PictureThe tax reform bill, perhaps the administration’s key piece of legislation passed in these 500 days, was signed into law in December 2017. While the bill had major implications for many industries, several key provisions impacted the housing industry. From downsized mortgage interest rate reduction and limits on property tax deductions to tax break stays for homesellers, the $1.4 trillion tax cut bill impacted homeowners, buyers, and sellers.While the fall in unemployment is part of a larger revival in jobs predating the current administration, the latest numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that the unemployment rate had fallen to 3.8 percent by the end of April. For the housing industry, which continues its struggle with the supply side, the latest job numbers also meant an increase in construction labor. The latest jobs report indicated that jobs in construction had risen by 286,000 over the past 12 months. When looking at the quality of life and housing across the country, OECD’s Better Life Index indicated that the U.S. ranked among the top countries in housing, income, and wealth, roughly at the same rank as when President Trump was sworn into office.A Look at LegislationIn May, the Dodd-Frank Reform bill—known officially as the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act—was signed into law by President Trump. The bill seeks to evolve and streamline regulations put in place by the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act and was passed by the House on May 22, by a vote of 258-159. “This is a moment years in the making, and I thank my colleagues in the Senate and the House of Representatives for their partnership and contributions to this effort over the years,” said Sen. Mike Crapo (R-ID), Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee. “This step toward right-sizing regulation will allow local banks and credit unions to focus more on lending, in turn propelling economic growth and creating jobs on Main Street and in our communities. This is an important moment for small financial institutions, small businesses, and families across America.”While the Dodd-Frank reform bill was still being discussed, the House of Representatives passed a new bill in April that would streamline the Volcker Rule. Implemented as part of the larger Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Volcker Rule limits the types of speculative investments banks can participate in, as a way to try and prevent some of the factors that contributed to the 2008 financial crisis. This new House bill, passed with a vote of 300-104, would make the Federal Reserve the sole regulator for Volcker Rule compliance. At the time, some proponents of the Volcker rule called for the bill to be rolled into the larger Dodd-Frank reform bill. However, the bill remains a separate piece of legislation and moved forward recently after the SEC voted on the overhaul. The SEC was the last of the five financial agencies required to sign off on the changes. According to Bloomberg, the changes are being viewed as a significant win for banks that have “long argued the original rule was overly complex and costly to comply with.”Noms, Noms, NomsIn the 500 days since the administration took office, many of President Trump’s nominees have been appointed to key positions. From the Fed Chairman to the most recent appointment of the head of the FHA (a position that had been vacant for the past four years), the nominations and appointments made by this administration are set to have a far-reaching effect on the housing industry.Most recently, in May, Brian Montgomery, who had been nominated by the President for the position of Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in November, was approved by the Senate by a vote of 74-33. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to serve with Secretary Carson and the team at HUD to further equal access to affordable rental housing and homeownership opportunities and seek solutions to restore vitality to the housing market,” Montgomery said in a statement. Montgomery, an industry veteran, served in the Executive Office of the President during the Administration of President George W. Bush before transitioning to his role as Assistant Secretary at HUD and FHA Commissioner under Presidents Bush and Obama. In recent years, he has served as Vice Chairman at The Collingwood Group, LLC, a Washington DC-based real estate finance consulting firm.In November 2017, President Trump nominated Jerome Powell for the position of Fed Chair “He’s strong, he’s committed, and he’s smart,” President Trump said during the official announcement. “And if he is confirmed by the Senate he will put his considerable talents and experience to work, leading our nation’s central independent bank, which has the critical responsibility to set monetary policy and our banking system as a whole.” Powell won the Senate over and was appointed to this position in early 2018. During his Congressional testimony in February after being confirmed, he backed further interest rate hikes.Around the same time, the President nominated Mick Mulvaney, the Federal Budget Director to the position of Acting Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). While the decision was a controversial one at that time, Mulvaney has brought in a slew of changes at the consumer watchdog. From requesting for $0 in funding for the CFPB in the second quarter to announcing that the Bureau had to be more “transparent and accountable,” Mulvaney has made quick changes to the way the Bureau works.In March 2017, Dr. Ben Carson was appointed as HUD secretary after a final Senate vote of 58-41.  “I am immensely grateful and deeply humbled to take on such an important role in service to the American people,” said Secretary Carson had said upon his appointment. Since then, despite the controversies, under his leadership, HUD has taken on several important initiatives such as announcing a major disbursement of funds to help communities still recovering from the 2017 natural disasters, partnering with the Department of Justice to end sexual assault in housing, and most recently commemorating 50 years of the Fair Housing Act.

Delinquency rates in disaster-affected areasFrank Nothaft, Chief Economist at CoreLogic said that serious delinquencies spiked up by 10 percent in the Big Island after Kilauea’s eruption in May, and fell by 4 percent in the rest of Hawaii. Speaking of Carr fire which began in late July, he noted that a sharp rise in the 30- or 60-day delinquency rate by 19 percent in the Redding metro area between August to September—recording the largest monthly rise in the metric since 2006, the period that marked the beginning of foreclosure crisis. He also pointed out that 30-day delinquency rates doubled in major metros in North Carolina in the month following Hurricane Florence reached landfall. Hurricane Florence led to major disruptions in the market this September. Seven of the top eight metros that experienced the highest annual gains in overall delinquency rates were in North Carolina and South Carolina—both being areas that were heavily affected by the storm, according to the report. It also noted a jump in 30-day delinquency rate from 1.7 percent to 3.8 percent in Wilmington between August and September. CoreLogic indicated that data collected over the next two months will provide a more comprehensive picture of the storm’s impact on mortgage payments. Nationwide delinquency rates With the exception of disaster-affected areas, the report found that U.S. serious delinquency and foreclosure rates were the lowest for September in 12 years. It also reflected a steady drop in the past due rate on an annual basis, for the past nine months consecutively. Nationally, 4.4 percent of mortgages were in some stage of delinquency, recording a decline in the overall delinquency rate at 0.6 percentage, compared to 5 percent last year. No state experienced an increase in the serious delinquency rate with the exception of Alaska, the report said. “Outside of the areas affected by natural disasters, serious delinquency, and foreclosure rates have declined steadily across the nation as the labor market has improved and home prices have risen,” said Frank Martell, President, and CEO of CoreLogic.

Pike County recognized in the Year of Alabama Food

It’s got character.”Sit N Sip is located behind town on what was once called “Little Wall Street” because of the fast and furious cotton trading business that went on there. So, the backstreet has history.Sit N Sip has the appearance of a beachside sandwich shop – a yellow block building with flamingos, lady bug banners and white wooden benches and a chalk board menu on the outside wall set the tone for what’s inside.“It’s a little bit of everything and a lot of flamingos,” Sanders said of the restaurant décor. “Some time back, somebody stuck a flamingo in the ground and that’s how it got started. People started bringing us flamingos of all kinds and then all kinds of things. We started putting things one place and then the other and that’s how we decorate.”The restaurant is unique to say the least. The salad bar is tucked away in a room of its own. There are booths and tables and a bar stool or two. A great place to sit and sip.But it’s the chicken salad that people come seeking.“It’s my granny’s recipe,” Sanders said. “She taught me to make it. The ingredients are important. She made chicken salad with homemade sweet relish and fresh chicken breast.“I make it as close to hers as I can. I use pecans and celery and always fresh chicken, never canned.”Sanders didn’t share that secret ingredient that sets his and his granny’s chicken salad apart but he did say that a secret to great chicken salad is found in how it’s made.“You have to mix the ingredients at certain temperatures and in certain ways,” he said.“That’s the real secret to Sit N Sip’s chicken salad.”Sisters, the Old Barn, Mossy Grove and Crowe’s all have their secret recipes, some of them were handed down through the generations and others were the result of trial and error and successful experimentation.“Every dish on the list of ‘100 dishes’ is extraordinary,” Stamps said. “The hope of the Alabama Tourism Department is that tourists will seek out these restaurants and try the dishes to die for. And, also, that Alabamians will use the brochure as a guide when they are traveling or just to make a restaurant a destination.“With the Year of Alabama Food campaign, we want to reinforce the farm-to-table concept. We have included more restaurants that feature locally grown products such as peach ice cream at Durbin Farms Market and the peach pie at Peach Park and the pecan pie at Heaton Farms in Clanton.”Stamps said the “100 dishes to eat in Alabama before you die” brochure includes barbecue, burgers and squash blossoms, seafood, sweets and swiggin’s.“No matter what your favorite dish is, the brochure includes a restaurant the features that very dish,” Stamps said. “There are 100 and more dishes to try and what better time to ride the restaurant tail than during the Year of Alabama Food.” Pike County recognized in the Year of Alabama Food By Jaine Treadwell Sponsored Content Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Book Nook to reopen Published 9:37 am Saturday, February 4, 2012 “‘The Year of Alabama Foods’ was an awarding winning campaign in 2005 and the most popular tourism promotion that we have launched, said Marilyn Stamps, Alabama Tourism Department. “Everybody loves to eat and Alabama has some of the best restaurants with the greatest variety that you can find anywhere. And, we have great cooks and award-winning chefs including Frank Stitt and Chris Hastings in Birmingham, Wesley True in Mobile and James Boyce in Huntsville, just to name a few.”Once again, the Alabama Tourism Department scanned and scoured the state looking for the ‘dishes to die for.’ From the foothills of the Appalachians to the Gulf Coast from the Georgia state line to the fringes of Mississippi, they came up with a list of “100 dishes to eat in Alabama before you die.”“Actually, there are more than 100 dishes listed in the brochure and there could have been more,” Stamps said. “There are just so many great dishes to die for here in Alabama.” You Might Like More than 300 expected at leadership conference More than 300 people have registered for the 2012 African-American History Month Leadership Conference that opens tonight at the Trojan… read more Print Article Email the author Five of those “100 dishes to eat in Alabama before you die” are right here in Pike County and that’s says a lot about what’s cooking in Pike County and quite a compliment to the local restaurant industry business, said Shelia Jackson, Troy director of tourism.“Three restaurants in Troy, Sisters, Mossy Grove Schoolhouse Restaurant and Crowe’s and Sit N Sip in Brundidge and the Old Barn Restaurant in Goshen were all selected,” Jackson said.Sisters was noted for its banana pudding, Mossy Grove for its beans and cornbread and Crowe’s for its chicken fingers and dipping sauce.Sit N Sip in Brundidge got the nod for its chicken salad and the Old Barn Restaurant for its rum bread pudding. Sit N Sip restaurant in Brundidge was not listed in the 2005 “100 Dishes” brochure. Had Jamie Sanders and Mark Kinster been in business in 2005, they might have been among the honored but they only opened their business five years ago.

Let’s talk about the secret surgery

No Comments

first_imgTo the Editor:It’s time to talk about what was once known as the ‘secret surgery.’ As a recipient of life-saving ostomy surgery and volunteer with the Bayonne Ostomy Alliance, I am writing in support of Ostomy Awareness Day on October 7.United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA) estimates 725,000 to 1 million people are living with an ostomy in the United States. An ostomy is a type of surgery that creates an opening (stoma) in the abdomen allowing for the removal of bodily waste into a pouch outside the body. This life-saving surgery may occur due to birth defects, cancer, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, trauma (such as a military service injury or accident), and other medical conditions.This year’s theme is “Navigate the Journey Together” and meant to recognize ostomy patients are not alone. Resources such as The Bayonne Ostomy Alliance and ostomy nursing specialists are available for those adjusting to a ‘new normal’ life. This year’s champion for the day is Rolf Benirschke, a former NFL placekicker and Pro Bowler with the San Diego Chargers. He excelled on and off the field in life after surgery and was one of the first to speak publically about this misunderstood surgery. Please help us to continue to shatter this silence.Everyone is welcome at meetings of The Bayonne Ostomy Alliance. Please join us at the Bayonne Medical Center, the second Wednesday of every month from 2:30 to 3:45 p.m. in the 2B Conference Room or contact Larry Pilarski at [email protected] LARRY PILARSKIBayonne Ostomy Alliancelast_img read more

Gordon continued with the vocal lead on “Infinite”, a newer tune that was debuted at Phish‘s three-night Gorge Amphitheatre run over the summer. “Infinite” smoothly transitioned into a bouncy rendition of “Jumping”, highlighted by some electric guitar work from Murawski. Mike Gordon and company continued with “Meat” and a cover of Beck‘s “Black Tambourine” before bringing the improv-heavy first set to a close with “Let’s Go”.Mike Gordon – “Meat”, “Black Tambourine”[Video: Mike Maciunski]Mike Gordon – “Let’s Go”[Video: Mike Maciunski]Following a brief setbreak, Mike Gordon and his bandmates opened their second set with “Up And Down”, marking the second OGOGO song of the evening.
