Liberty defensive depth to be tested against UMass – Lynchburg News and Advance

Liberty began this past weekends game at Rutgers without Brandon Tillmon occupying one of the starting linebacker spots. The contest ended with several players going down with injuries, which will force the Flames to test their depth Saturday at UMass.

Depth is going to be a factor, Flames coach Hugh Freeze said Monday. Were going to have to get our two-deep ready with kids that havent played a lot of snaps this year. Then hopefully by Saturday, some of these that are on the day-to-day list will be able to be added bonuses to us.

Tillmon and fellow starting linebacker Solomon Ajayi both were listed as day-to-day on the injury report. Ajayi was injured late in the first half against the Scarlet Knights but returned and played the majority of the second half.

He was sporting a walking boot on his left foot leaving the stadium.

Tillmon suffered a small fracture in his right foot early in the Flames Oct. 5 victory at New Mexico State. He played against Maine two weeks later but was unable to go against the Scarlet Knights.

The injuries will necessitate more reps in practice for Amarii Jenkins, Tyren Dupree, Waylen Cozad and Malik Caper.

Jenkins, a redshirt sophomore, made the second start of his career against Rutgers in place of Tillmon at Will linebacker.

Brandon being the great player that he is, making the plays that youve seen in the past couple of games, it was a huge loss, Jenkins said Monday. Hopefully he gets better so he can help out the defense a lot for the rest of the season.

Dupree, a redshirt freshman, has served as Ajayis backup this season with seven appearances and posted a career-high six tackles against Rutgers. Cozad, the junior college transfer, started against Louisiana on Sept. 7 and finished with a season-high nine stops against the Scarlet Knights.

Caper, a true freshman, has played in two games this season and can play in two more while retaining his year of eligibility. He traveled with the team to Rutgers.

With those two being kind of banged up, [linebackers coach Kyle] Pope is going to make sure he does his best to get the rest of us ready, Jenkins said. Were kind of young and inexperienced. Its not an excuse for being able to step up and take in a role that needs to be taken when somebody goes in.

The injuries werent limited to just the linebacker corps.

Free safety JaVon Scruggs and defensive end Austin Lewis, both sophomores, are in concussion protocol.

Scruggs, the Appomattox County High product who posted a career-high 10 tackles against Rutgers, was hit on one of the Flames two onside kick attempts.

He took a vicious hit on that onside kick, which was not a clean play, Freeze said.

That means Isaac Steele, who only played on special teams against Rutgers until Scruggs injury late in the fourth quarter, will receive most of the first-team reps at the position.

Micah Glaize and Benjamin Alexander will serve as Elijah Bentons backups at rover.

Lewis was one of three defensive ends to see consistent playing time against Rutgers in the first half, and his absence forced Jessie Lemonier and TreShaun Clark to play the majority of the second-half snaps.

Freeze added he wants to prevent nose guard Ralfs Rusins from playing as many snaps as he did against Rutgers, which could mean a larger role for Elisha Mitchell.

The good thing is well be able to present to our defense exactly what they want to see because it is a mirror image of who we are, Freeze said of preparing for UMass offense. Its identical. The same RPOs, the same runs, the same sets. They may go a little bit more two-by-two spread than we do, but thats typically when theyve gotten behind a bit that they go to that. If they can stay in the game, they stay in their comfort zone, which is the RPO world.

NOTE: Libertys Nov. 9 matchup against BYU is scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. EST kickoff at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Utah. The game will be televised on ESPNU.

The ‘cautionary tale’ of Liberty University – The College Fix

Liberty University is known as one of the preeminent Christian schools in the entire country. But recent revelations about its internal practices have shed light on some troubling developments at the institution, circumstances that have reportedly led to a campus culture of fear, as one writer argues.

Liberty offers a useful case study in how higher education institutions that pursue unique missions can also be susceptible to unique governance pitfalls, writes Christian Barnard atthe James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal.

The school was started by Jerry Falwell in the early 1970s, Barnard writes; Falwell said that the goal was not to create another Bible college but rather a venerable academic institution with a distinctively Christian environment. Falwell succeeded in growing the scope and prestige of the university over the next several decades. After his death in 2007, his son, Jerry Falwell, Jr., took over, reportedly leading to a new and arguably degraded campus environment:

Critics argue that Falwell has created a culture of fear where people are unable to speak out. They point to examples such as how faculty outside of the law school cannot obtain tenure and the routine use of non-disclosure agreements that stop current and former staff and board members from discussing sensitive matters around Falwells leadership.

Documented incidents of retaliatory firings when staff criticize university leadership make this fear a legitimate reality.

Students live under scrutiny and fear along with the staff. Other stories from students and alumni detail his micro-management of the campus newspaperclaiming that he reserves the right to edit or reject any columns of which he disapproves. The school newspaper isnt even student-run anymore. Other accounts note incidents like the universitys past derecognition of Campus Democrats, Falwells forced removal of an anti-Trump pastor, and when campus shut down a student booth where libertarian students tried to discuss legalizing marijuana.

Other highlights of malfeasance include making loans to friends contrary to the schools financial interests, signing massive construction contracts with personal associates, and investing in real estate thats owned by friends and family. The reports from Politico and Reutersalso question Liberty-sponsored political activitylike selling merchandise that features both the Liberty and Trump brandas potential violations of IRS rules governing nonprofits.

Since faculty have little job security and students are limited in their ability to voice their dissent, its unlikely anyone on campus will stand up to Falwell. He simply isnt being held accountable by a governance model that placed too much power in the hands of one person, Barnard writes.

Phase 1 of new signage in Liberty completed – Times Herald-Record

LIBERTY The Town of Liberty has announced that Phase 1 of its sign blight initiative, undertaken in partnership with the Village of Liberty, has been completed. Town of Liberty Councilmen and Village of Liberty Trustees have worked collaboratively from the design and planning stages, through funding and implementation to replace outdated and in some cases dilapidated signage with new, visually appealing installations that have been completely grant funded.

Signage installed during Phase 1 includes two new gateway signs, as well as eight new directional wayfinding signs throughout the Village and Town of Liberty. One gateway sign is located on Route 52 between Denman and Hysana Roads, near Stephensons Garden Center, and includes the Town name and the slogan Live. Play. Do business here. The other gateway sign has been installed on Harris Road in Ferndale, near Sullivan County Animal Hospital. The directional wayfinding signage serves to point travelers toward Libertys downtown district, among other key recreational locations.

Removing these eyesores and replacing them with new signage that is modern in appearance and clean has been a goal of ours for some time, said Town of Liberty Supervisor, Brian P. Rourke. They are a significant improvement to the gateways of our community, both aesthetically and physically, and have been 100 percent funded by grants.

Two 2018 Sullivan Signs Grant Funding Awards from the Sullivan County Planning Department have helped make the upgrades possible. The Town of Liberty was awarded $7,500, while the Village received its own $7,500. An additional $10,000, received as a 2016 Sullivan Renaissance Silver Feather Award Grant, was also earmarked for the project.

The combined grant money we secured for this project has meant no financial outlay by the community weve applied zero tax dollars, managing to carry out a major civic beautification project with zero impact on our taxpayers, said Rourke.

As the Town and Village proceed into Phase 2 of the project, Department of Transportation attraction signs will be consolidated, along with the addition of more parking-related directional signage and two more directional wayfinding signs. During a recent meeting, the Town of Liberty Town Board also approved a large Welcome to Liberty billboard. Its retro Catskills design will be unveiled soon.

Boyd Matheson: Liberty without morality and religious freedom is but window dressing – Deseret News

In his first inaugural address in 1789, George Washington said he hoped that the foundations of our national policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality. John Adams added, It is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. In a letter to the Massachusetts Militia, Adams also added, Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People.

Washington and Adams were in essence saying that without religious freedom and absent public morality, the freedoms framed in the Constitution were merely window dressing.

Both Washington and Adams invoked the Latin phrase sine qua non without which (there is) nothing, connecting the essential nature of religious liberty and public morality to freedom and the American Constitution.

Through the years, and with increasing blunt force and brute strength, the secular world has attempted to attack and dislodge religion and morality from the public square. Governments around the world, including in the U.S., have altered, limited and targeted religious liberty and religious institutions.

But on Oct. 23 at the University of Oxford, Elder Quentin L. Cook, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, delivered a landmark address titled, The Impact of Religious Freedom on Public Morality.

A speech delivered by a world religious leader on religious freedom and public morality may seem unremarkable. His remarks, however, created a perfectly fitted frame around the principles required for the light of liberty to burn brightly and provided a window through which to look at the world today and the critical criteria necessary for true freedom to endure.

Following in the footsteps of Washington, Adams and others, Elder Cook stated, Freedom to believe in private and to exercise belief and speech in the public square are essential to protecting unalienable rights.

Elder Cook went on to declare, I am equally concerned that the foundations which have historically supported faith, accountability to God, and the religious impulse are increasingly being marginalized in a secular world and derided and even banished from the public square.

He also detailed how religious liberty has been established as part of essential human rights through the ages.

Elder Cook made a compelling case that the sine qua non of religious liberty and public morality were the foundation from which one of his personal heroes, William Wilberforce, launched his pursuit to abolish slavery in Great Britain. Without the protections of religious liberty and the power of public morality, Wilberforces crusade against slavery would have been snuffed out before it ever sparked the flame of justice and human dignity. The long, arduous battle for the emancipation of slaves in the British Isles was eventually victorious.

Providentially, the flame of freedom for slaves rose as the light in the life of Wilberforce flickered. Emancipation was proclaimed one week before Wilberforce died. Elder Cook noted that many of the great breakthroughs and advancements in history began with a person of faith entering the public square to make a moral stand.

Another religious leader, Rabbi Dr. Meir Y. Soloveichik, regularly speaks to the need for faith to be taken into the public square. He remarked, When the state demands disloyalty to ones faith as the price for entering society, that is an assault on the human soul, and that is intolerable, because the soul of man is the candle of God.

Rabbi Soloveichik continued, The soul of man is the candle of God. It is a powerful and enduring image. The human soul is a candle kindled by the Creator. Like a candles flame, the souls sanctity is so easily extinguished when buffeted by the winds of change, by the zeitgeist, by social pressure or by persecution. And yet like a flame, the soul, if protected, if sustained, if fueled by freedom, by faith, by courage, contains within it an infinite amount of power that can spark and inspire.

He then concluded, Originally, until recent times and in Jerusalem today, Hanukkah lights were kindled not inside but outside the door of Jewish homes, right outside the door. Lighting candles outside the doors of our homes expresses that when people of faith leave their homes and enter the world, they take their beliefs and their religious identity with them. They do not check their beliefs at the door when they enter the public square. Their souls, the candle within each person, illuminates their path wherever they may lead.

What we bring to the public square as individuals is so much more than our physical presence. We should be bringing our whole, authentic self to work and to our communities that includes our religious beliefs. Leaving our deeply held beliefs at home, in the mosque, synagogue or church is to leave a portion of self behind and accept a smaller portion of the illuminating light that emanates from the soul of every man and every woman.

As the capstone to a life of service and sacrifice to the nation, Washington chose to include in his farewell address this counsel: Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked: Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.

American liberty and a constitutional republic are but window dressing to human flourishing without what Founding Fathers like Washington and Adams, along with todays world religious leaders like Elder Cook and Rabbi Soloveichik, have declared. Religious freedom and public morality are indeed the sine qua non of liberty. If America is going to remain a beacon of hope and freedom, every leader and every citizen must live within their shared public morality and seek to secure the religious freedom required to promote and defend it.

Rutgers Million-Dollar Guarantee To Liberty Proved To Be A Wise Investment – Forbes

PISCATAWAY, NJ - OCTOBER 26: Johnny Langan #17 of the Rutgers Scarlet Knights leaps for yards ... [+] against the Liberty Flames during the third quarter SHI Stadium on October 26, 2019 in Piscataway, New Jersey. Rutgers defeated Liberty 44-34. (Photo by Corey Perrine/Getty Images)

For a change, there were plenty of smiles for the Rutgers football team Saturday.

Million-dollar smiles, to be precise.

That was exactly how much Rutgers paid Liberty to show up at SHI Stadium for what probably was projected as an easy victory for the Scarlet Knights when the contract was signed in 2017. But with Rutgers mired in a six-game skid in which it had been outscored 237-30, the Flames had been made a road favorite. In fact, Liberty was favored by 7.5 points in what was a first, according to sports betting and business expert Darren Rovell of the Action Network, who tweeted that never before had a college football team been a home underdog in a game for which it paid at least $1 million.

I saw they were favored to win, said Rutgers quarterback Johnny Langan, who accounted for 310 yards of total offense and three touchdowns. I thought that was ridiculous. We just played our brand of football and played it well and got the win.

So yes, Rutgers winning was an upset. And that spread appeared to be accurate when Libertys talented offense needed only 3:17 to score on the first possession of the game. But the Scarlet Knights kept matching the Flames touchdown for touchdown until their defense finally took control of the game in the second half.

Wins don't come easy so we're going to enjoy this one," linebacker Tyshon Fogg said.

So at least in that sense, the money was well-spent, as Rutgers avoided similar scenarios of the past two seasons, when it lost buy games to Buffalo ($900K in 2018) and Eastern Michigan ($860K in 2017), per nj.com. But it was hard to ignore the monetary woes on display Saturday as Rutgers continues to literally pay the price for the failed Chris Ash era.

Most obviously, there is the sunk cost of the more than $7.5 million still owed to Ash, who was fired in late September with three-plus years still remaining on his contract. And also there is the even more worrisome problem of how to coax back the bulk of a fed-up fan base that has begun staying away in droves with Rutgers on its way to its fifth straight losing season. The announced crowd of 23,058 included paid tickets, but the actual in-house attendance appeared to be less than half of that.

The obvious way to win back many of those people (and their wallets) would be to re-hire Greg Schiano, who took over a similarly downtrodden Rutgers program in 2001 and eventually turned it into a perennial bowl participant, going 5-1 in bowl games.

Truth be told, five days before Halloween, Schianos specter loomed over the proceedings. For the second week in a row, a group of tailgaters had a large, apparently professionally-made banner imploring athletic director Pat Hobbs to hire Schiano. (And it was different from the previous banner.)

And in his post-game media session, interim head coach Nunzio Campanile was asked about his relationship with Schiano after it was mentioned in the radio broadcast that Schiano texts him before every game. Campanile confirmed this.

Of course, not too much should be read into that, considering both Campanile and Schiano are football lifers who were born and raised in northern New Jersey and have known one another for many years.

And then there was an indirect Schiano reference from standout sophomore defensive end Mike Tverdov, who notched a second-quarter sack of Liberty quarterback Stephen Calvert and then made a chopping motion with his hands, a favorite move of Rutgers players from the Schiano era, including Tverdovs older brother Pete. Schianos motto back then was keep chopping.

A smiling Mike Tverdov said afterward it was not an endorsement.

Youve got to understand what I grew up watching, he said. Its pretty instinctual and no indication of how I feel on a certain topic.

Still, if the Rutgers chop were to be resurrected on a regular basis with Schiano being hired again, he would have to adjust to a slightly different landscape than the one with which he became so familiar. Because he was so successful, he had a lot of influence in decisions made by the athletic department back then, according to sources. That influence included input on how money was allocated within the department.

But things have changed at Rutgers, and the proof is in the $115 million RWJBarnabas Health Athletic Performance Center, which opened in September. It houses training and practice facilities for mens and womens basketball, gymnastics and a burgeoning wrestling program. It already is an obvious selling point to recruits in mens basketball, a sport in which Rutgers hasnt made the NCAA tournament since 1991, yet is on the upswing under fourth-year coach Steve Pikiell.

Make no mistake, Schiano and the football program still would drive the proverbial bus at Rutgers, especially if he could bring the Scarlet Knights back to respectability. But football cannot be treated as the only game in town at Rutgers anymore, and Schiano would have to get used to that.

Because Ash was fired on Sept. 29, Rutgers has been able to get a head start on its coaching search. Whether the eventual choice is Schiano, Mississippi States Joe Moorhead, another rumored candidate, or somebody else, he will have to fix Rutgers biggest problem in the Big Ten-an utter inability to compete at the line of scrimmage.

Rutgers defied the odds(makers) versus Liberty by averaging 4.9 yards rushing and recording three sacks as the Scarlet Knights found an opponent to whom they were physically superior for the first time since opening night against Massachusetts.

Our O-line played a tremendous game, Langan said. I cant give enough credit to those guys. They were the reason why we won.

It might be awhile before a Rutgers QB can say that after a Big Ten game. But Schiano (or whomever) must make that a priority for smiling faces to again become commonplace around this program.

Washington-Liberty QB Andrew Bolfek throws 6 TDs to win Player of the Week – WTOP

Washington-Liberty High School quarterback Andrew Bolfek completed 20 of 36 passes for a school record 409 yards and six touchdowns, each longer than 20 yards, as the Generals beat Langley, 41-21, to earn Player of the Week.

TheDC Touchdown Cluband WTOP are partnering all high school football season to honor a Player of the Week and help choose a DMV Game of the Week, presented byThe St. James. Read about this weeks Player of the Week below andvote in our Game of the Week pollat the bottom of the article.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Andrew Bolfek, Washington-Liberty High School, Arlington, Va.

Washington-Liberty football coach Josh Shapiro has known Andrew Bolfek since Bolfek was in preschool; Shapiro has a daughter the same age.

And Shapiro knew that Bolfek was a solid athlete. As a sophomore last fall, he was the starting quarterback on the junior varsity. Bolfek moved up to varsity this season, but Shapiro said that Bolfek now only slightly resembles the player he used to know. Since last fall, Shapiro said, Bolfek has grown nearly five inches, to 6 feet 2, and the increased size has made a difference in Bolfeks performance.

This past Friday, Bolfek completed 20 of 36 passes for a school record 409 yards and six touchdowns, each longer than 20 yards, as the Generals beat Langley, 41-21. For his efforts, Bolfek was named the Military Bowl DC Touchdown Club High School Football Player of the Week.

Its incredible how well hes doing considering how much he has grown, Shapiro said. A lot of times, you sacrifice coordination when you have that kind of growth spurt. Im in shock seeing this kid play so well.

Bolfek had entered the Langley game with just six touchdown passes in the seasons first seven games with a season-high of just 200 yards passing in a game, though Shapiro said that was the result of things beyond Bolfeks control.

I call the offense and were normally run heavy, Shapiro said, adding that the Generals offensive line improved its pass protection against Langley. But after this week, rest assured, we might come out slinging it.

Others receiving Player of the Week consideration were:


South River WR-DB Sean Leonard caught two touchdown passes, intercepted a pass on defense, and recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown as the Seahawks remained undefeated with a 47-9 win over Old Mill.


Linganore RB Xander McClure rushed 19 times for 238 yards and two touchdowns and returned a kickoff 88 yards for another score as the Lancers beat Tuscarora (Md.), 54-15.


Glenelg RB Kyle Dry rushed 22 times for 147 yards and a touchdown as the Gladiators beat Wilde Lake, 35-16.


Tuscarora (Va.) QB Ethan Gick passed for 118 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 135 yards and another score as the Huskies beat Loudoun County, 42-7.


Richard Montgomery RB TKai Ayoola rushed 42 times for 297 yards and two touchdowns as the Rockets beat Rockville, 15-12.


Wise QB Jayden Sauray completed all six of his passes for 179 yards and three touchdowns as the Pumas beat Parkdale, 51-0.


Freedom-Woodbridge QB Quest Powell completed 20 of 27 passes for 324 yards and five touchdowns as the Eagles beat Potomac (Va.), 63-8.


Huntingtown WR Anthony Smith had touchdown catches of 70 and 25 yards as the Hurricanes beat Northern, 17-13.


Gonzaga WR Aaron Turner caught three passes for 139 yards and a touchdown, rushed twice for 12 yards and a touchdown and returned a kickoff 78 yards for a third score as the Eagles beat Bishop McNamara, 49-21.

If You Had Bought One Liberty Properties (NYSE:OLP) Shares Five Years Ago Youd Have Made 23% – Simply Wall St

If you buy and hold a stock for many years, youd hope to be making a profit. But more than that, you probably want to see it rise more than the market average. But One Liberty Properties, Inc. (NYSE:OLP) has fallen short of that second goal, with a share price rise of 23% over five years, which is below the market return. But if you include dividends then the return is market-beating. Zooming in, the stock is up a respectable 8.8% in the last year.

See our latest analysis for One Liberty Properties

To quote Buffett, Ships will sail around the world but the Flat Earth Society will flourish. There will continue to be wide discrepancies between price and value in the marketplace One imperfect but simple way to consider how the market perception of a company has shifted is to compare the change in the earnings per share (EPS) with the share price movement.

Over half a decade, One Liberty Properties managed to grow its earnings per share at 0.6% a year. This EPS growth is slower than the share price growth of 4.2% per year, over the same period. So its fair to assume the market has a higher opinion of the business than it did five years ago. And thats hardly shocking given the track record of growth.

The companys earnings per share (over time) are depicted in the image below.

This free interactive report on One Liberty Propertiess earnings, revenue and cash flow is a great place to start, if you want to investigate the stock further.

It is important to consider the total shareholder return, as well as the share price return, for any given stock. The TSR is a return calculation that accounts for the value of cash dividends (assuming that any dividend received was reinvested) and the calculated value of any discounted capital raisings and spin-offs. Arguably, the TSR gives a more comprehensive picture of the return generated by a stock. We note that for One Liberty Properties the TSR over the last 5 years was 73%, which is better than the share price return mentioned above. This is largely a result of its dividend payments!

One Liberty Propertiess TSR for the year was broadly in line with the market average, at 16%. That gain looks pretty satisfying, and it is even better than the five-year TSR of 12% per year. Even if the share price growth slows down from here, theres a good chance that this is business worth watching in the long term. If you would like to research One Liberty Properties in more detail then you might want to take a look at whether insiders have been buying or selling shares in the company.

LTE: The Il-liberty of Protest – The Daily Northwestern

Ryan AbbottOctober 28, 2019

In regard to Miss Changs response on October 21st, 2019:

Miss Chang attempts to justify her intellectual intolerance with false and misleading claims on Mr. Sessions credibility. She notes that one news outlet ranked Mr. Sessions as a heavy conservative out of 55 senators 12 years ago alluding that it makes Mr. Sessions as a conservative extremist.

It does not: Mr. Sessions core beliefs are held by a majority of every type of conservative, according to 2017 data from the Pew Research Center. It would be quite fair to say his beliefs are that of the average conservative. This is troubling, since Miss Chang writes that even if Sessions does hold the views of the average conservative students should not simply accept this as the reality of conservative thought.

Translation: reject conservatism whether Mr. Sessions is radical or not. Or: (protest) all conservatism, which is the conflicting title of her response. In another contradiction, Miss Chang states that there are 1) both many alternative options for conservative speakers (naming none) and 2) whether most conservatives are not hateful or intolerant at all cannot be confirmed or denied.

Accordingly, whether most Leftists are hateful or intolerant cannot be confirmed or denied either.

Mr. Sessions is your fellow American. Does he not deserve any meaningful interaction at all?

How can any college student so vehemently resist an opportunity to have his/her core beliefs challenged? A baseless refusal to grant Mr. Sessions intellectual credibility ignorantly dismisses the views of millions of fellow Americans. Conservatives exist who have not actively oppressed others. Living with this sizeable subpopulation of the US will be less divisive if you do not assume their epistemology is based in hatred.

Finally, Miss Chang nonsensically states that a letter urging her to engage with Mr. Sessions instead of protesting his appearance is somehow an attempt to subdue (her) First Amendment right to assemble. It isnt, but confronted with the reality of Mr. Sessions views, Miss Chang does exactly as I predicted: declares a crisis, refuses to interact meaningfully, and falsely associates blind hatred with Mr. Sessions beliefs. Protesting Mr. Sessions confronts nothing but an imaginary and quite vapid avatar of intolerance. If anyone wishes to truly confront him, that involves speaking directly with him. I implore Miss Chang again to consider attending Mr. Sessions speech. If you arent challenging his beliefs, you arent challenging your own you accomplish nothing but the affirmation of your own bigotry.

Carpenter Eddie Dowd of Park Hills, Missouri, nails a truss Monday at the future site of Liberty Apartments in the 1100 block of Walnut Street in Cape Girardeau. Double Diamond Construction & Development of Crystal City, Missouri, is the general contractor for the project.


Despite an unusually rainy spring and summer, developers of a low-income housing project in Cape Girardeau say construction is on track for the projects on-time completion in the spring.

Liberty Apartments, an eight-building, 40-unit apartment complex in south Cape Girardeau, is slated to open in April.

Groundbreaking for the $4.5 million project took place six months ago.

For a while, we thought wed have to push the opening back to June, but the contractor has been able to catch up, so were still looking at a completion date sometime in April, depending on winter weather, said Melissa Stickel, executive director of the Community Partnership of Southeast Missouri.

The Community Partnership, formerly known as Community Caring Council, is developing the project along with Chad Hartle of RCH Development and Cape Area Community Housing Development Corp.

RCH Development of Jackson will manage the apartment complex and manages similar apartment developments in several other communities.

Stickel said her office has received a lot of calls from people interested in renting an apartment at the complex, but it will be a few months before housing applications will be accepted.

We will likely start looking for a property manager early in the year and will probably begin taking applications soon after that, she said.

The complex, in the 1100 block of Walnut Street east of West End Boulevard, consists of seven one-story brick apartment buildings and a community center. Each 865-square-foot apartment will include living, dining and kitchen areas, two bedrooms, a bathroom and laundry facilities. The apartments are expected to rent for around $475 or $500 per month, Stickel said. Some of the units will be ADA accessible.

According to the projects plans, the community center will feature an open area for large gatherings as well as a learning center and an exercise area.

The Missouri Housing Development Commission, the Raymond James Tax Credit Fund and Banterra Bank are providing financing for the project.

Liberty Hall stops in to chat about their showing of a Halloween movie this Thursday – KETK | FOX51 | EastTexasMatters.com

The NCAA took a major step Tuesday toward allowing college athletes to cash in on their fame, voting to permit them to ''benefit from the use of their name, image and likeness.''

The nation's largest governing body for college sports and its member schools now must figure out how to allow athletes to profit - something they have fought against doing for years - while still maintaining rules regarding amateurism. The NCAA Board of Governors, meeting at Emory University in Atlanta, directed each of the NCAA's three divisions to create the necessary new rules immediately and have them in place no later than January 2021.

What does she stand for? A meditation on the Statue of Liberty on her 133rd birthday – New York Daily News

Bartholdi, and later civil engineer Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel, caught the spirit of the project and thus began the epic struggle to create, build, transport and pay for the monument, base and pedestal. Although the Statue of Liberty was to be a gift from France, the cost of its base and pedestal was to be financed by America. Yet, in America, fundraising dragged. As it would stand in New Yorks harbor, most Americans living beyond the citys borders felt New Yorkers should pay for it. Affluent donors as well as the U.S. and New York State governments were slow to contribute and tightfisted when they did.

Rutgers won its 2nd game this year by defeating Liberty | What did visiting recruits think? – NJ.com

Its been a tough stretch for Rutgers. One of the toughest stretches in program history, to be exact. But how has the product on the field affected recruiting?

Rutgers appears content to go into the early signing period with the 10 players currently committed, leaving around five slots for its next appointed head coach to take to (traditional) signing day. However, the staff must still keep potential targets warm and recruit committed players as their pledges are verbal and non-binding.

There havent been many high-profile recruits at games this year, partly because of Rutgers performance and partly because its intentionally building a small class, recruits have their own games to attend and most desired seniors are already committed somewhere.

The Irvington (N.J.) high school contingent -- which boasts three potential national recruits and other FBS-caliber players -- was a late scratch as the team had a game against Barringer, providing a blow to the star power on Rutgers visitors list. However, we caught up with others who made the trip for their thoughts about Rutgers on the heels of its 44-34 win over Liberty -- the programs first win since opening weekend.

Union (N.J.) wide receiver Ahmirr Robinson is having one of the best seasons of any wide receiver in the state. Hes committed to Rutgers and has frequented home games this year despite the teams struggles and is proud to be awarded a win.

I think the game was a well-needed spark for the team and the coaches, and the team rallying around their play-makers stood out to me the most, he said. The atmosphere was great, it made me feel that regardless of (how the season has gone )everyone was behind the team and coaches.

Weequahic (Newark, N.J.) athlete Donovan Wadley, brother of Arkum Wadley who starred at Iowa, also came away impressed.

What stood out the most was how they just fought and kept their heads in the game. It was a good game, he said. Rutgers just wanted it more and they came out on top. They played with heart. It shows me that they have potential and they could bounce back from any situation.

West Side (Newark, N.J.) safety Shua Sutton is one of the most underrated seniors in North Jersey, however, Rutgers has picked up the scent.

I thought highly of the game, Sutton said. "The offense was moving the ball. The defense did a great job. There were a few mistakes, but overall Rutgers did a great job and got a great win.

What stood out the most is how good they treated the recruits and how the players stayed in the game and kept their heads high. As of now, Rutgers is one of my top schools and I hope everything goes well.

Paramus (N.J.) athlete Kyle Jacob is also underrated though being tracked by the Scarlet Knights. He was encouraged most by how Rutgers continued to fight through the back-and-forth game.

The atmosphere was great. Being on the field watching the guys warmup was awesome, Jacob said. They played hard and made plays against Liberty and it was great to see. I think what stood out most was how the players throughout the whole game stayed focus and played their hardest, doing what their coaches told them to do.

Class of 2022 DePaul (Wayne, N.J.) linebacker Thomas McGuire was one of the few players from the Big Six (of the Super Football Conference) to make the trip.

I thought it was great to watch Rutgers compete and win against Liberty. The game was also a great opportunity to talk and meet all the coaches. The culture stood out to me the most. I feel Rutgers has a brotherhood and amazing culture, McGuire said. I like Rutgers a lot and hope in three years to stay home and put on for the state.

Canadian linebacker Dawson Pierre is hopeful to attend Rutgers next season following his stint at Vanier College in Montreal, Quebec. He also gave Saturdays visit high marks.

Going to the Rutgers-Liberty game was a great experience. I think it was a great performance by Rutgers and a great team win. (The) offense and defense played a great game. The atmosphere was what really stood out the most for me, Pierre said. "The crowd, the ambiance and to see how much fun the guys were having.

Everything was awesome! Currently, Rutgers is my No. 1 choice. I would really love to play for Rutgers next season and I am looking forward to making it happen.

Many visitors who confirmed theyd attend never made it to Piscataway Saturday. However, those who did got a pleasant surprise. It remains to be seen if interim head coach Nunzio Campanile -- who got his first win as a college head coach Saturday -- and staff can build on this momentum.

I enjoyed the energy of the game and being on the sidelines, said Donovan Catholic (Toms River, N.J.) class of 2022 defensive tackle Dominick Brogna. Watching them warm-up and run out really got me fired up. I was excited to be there as they got a team win along with coach Nunzios first win as head coach.

Can Rutgers find a way to be competitive against the brutal schedule ahead, starting with Illinois which recently beat Wisconsin in the biggest upset of the year?

And it doesnt get any easier from there.

In fact, it gets much, much harder as Ohio State, Michigan State and Penn State round out Rutgers schedule down the stretch.

But, at least the coaches and players got to enjoy one more win in front of recruits before heading down the murderers row of Big Ten play.

Visit the Statue of Liberty, feel her unifying message | Opinion – NJ.com

Editors note: Monday, Oct. 28, marks the 133rd anniversary of the Statue of Libertys dedication by President Grover Cleveland.

By Nicholas Garrison

Recent arguments over immigration policy have stirred debate over the purpose and meaning of the Statue of Liberty. This has me asking: When is the last time anyone visited her? For even the most jaded, being there is to be awestruck. Her simple, transcendent message is easy to grasp hope for a better world, for all.

I wish everyone would visit the Statue of Liberty and feel the power of her unifying message.

She beckons us from her tiny, floating garden in the middle of the Hudson River, rising symbolically atop a fort built to defend a young nation. One cant just go to Liberty Island one must cross over to her by ferry a pilgrimage. As we approach, facing the sun, Liberty Enlightening the World is spectacular. Ashore she emerges from the trees, and her scale seems impossible. Everywhere the fort is flecked with her patina. Inside she is tiny; gleaming copper sheets are held fast by a giddy framework where the rivets seem to have rivets. Its not hard to see and feel a relentless energy in her softly folded construction, reinforcing the very ideas of freedom and liberty. She is amazing.

Ones thoughts go from the idea of her, to her construction, back to the idea of her: What compelled thousands of private citizens, oceans and cultures apart, to band together and overcome ridiculous obstacles of engineering, logistics and fundraising to achieve such a feat? Not ego or profit. Not tribal pride. Not even, really, the end of a terrible civil war. It was simply the impulse of a human heart to build a physical symbol as grand as the foundational idea of hope and opportunity America had come to represent for the world.

Her message endures. When I first started thinking about the design for a new museum for the Statue of Liberty, the parks superintendent, David Lusinger, told me that still today, there are visitors that get on their knees and kiss the ground she stands on. This vision would not leave me. During construction, workers and tradespeople from every background and political leaning worked together with obvious pride and dedication to the project, often bringing their children to the jobsite. One particularly nasty day I asked the construction superintendent, Larry Sidoti, if his crew was getting discouraged. Not at all he beamed, we love her.

These feelings are contagious on the island.

Adding to the statues spell, Liberty Island is magical on its own. Conceived as a formal garden around the star-shaped fort, it contains wide pedestrian walks and bosques of trees shading rolling lawns. An esplanade along the waters edge is both a promenade for voices from around the world and a lookout for New York Harbor. Breezes fan spectacular panoramic views of New Yorks skyline across the Hudson to where the twin towers once stood, and we are reminded just how powerful this message of hope and opportunity is, and how lucky we are to live here.

Tasked with conceiving the first new building on this small island, it was not lost on me that I was on sacred ground and that every square inch of it mattered. Like everyone else, I was smitten with my surroundings, and I dedicated myself to do the best work I could in the service of her. The effort to rescue the original torch from its dark location inside the fort and persist so that it was given pride of place in the new museum in full daylight overlooking New York Harbor, was a labor of true love.

As the exhibits make clear, we have always contested the idea of what liberty means to each of us as individuals, but the power of the Statue of Liberty to inspire us to be the best we can be is indisputable. We have never been perfect, but her dream is: a monumental dream of hope for a better world.

Go and feel inspired again.

Liberty adds UConn to 2020 football schedule, moves UVa game to 2023 – Lynchburg News and Advance

Liberty tweaked its 2020 football schedule by adding a program shifting to independent status and moving a date with an in-state program to a later season.

The Flames will play the University of Connecticut on Oct. 31, 2020, at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Connecticut as part of the Huskies independent schedule.

The Hartford Courant released nine of the Huskies 12 games for the 2020 season Thursday morning.

UConn announced over the summer it is moving all of its sports, except football, from the American Athletic Conference to the Big East Conference. UConn will join Liberty, Notre Dame, BYU, Army, UMass and New Mexico State as independent programs in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

As FBS independents, we certainly try to cooperate with one another in scheduling, Liberty athletic director Ian McCaw said in a phone interview Thursday morning. He cited Army, BYU and UMass as examples of independent programs moving around games to accommodate the Flames move to college footballs top tier in 2018.

We wanted to help Connecticut.

The Flames original 2020 schedule featured Oct. 31 as an open week. Liberty opted to move its scheduled Nov. 7 game at Virginia to Oct. 14, 2023.

The Nov. 7 weekend will serve as an open week for Liberty in 2020.

That schedule shuffling allowed UConn to play at Virginia next season.

McCaw confirmed the 2020 matchup with the Huskies is the first in a home-and-home series, with UConn playing at Williams Stadium on Nov. 11, 2023.

McCaw added Liberty and UConn envision playing frequently in the future and the programs are in discussions to continue the series beyond 2023.

The addition of UVa and UConn to the 2023 schedule gives Liberty 10 opponents for that season.

UVa is the second Power 5 opponent on the schedule. The Flames will play at South Carolina on Nov. 4, 2023, and receive a $1.5 million guarantee for the trip to Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia, South Carolina.

Libertys 2023 slate features five games in September (Bowling Green, at Coastal Carolina, at Buffalo, Eastern Michigan and at Miami (Ohio)), two in October (Old Dominion and at Virginia) and four in November (at South Carolina, UConn, UMass and at New Mexico State).

Were very close to announcing our 2023 schedule, McCaw said. Its a very attractive schedule. Were putting putting the finishing touches on that.

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are not in US Constitution – Call Newspapers

Letters to the Editor

I hesitate to cast aspersions upon conservative intelligence or erudition, however, I must take exception to Jean Flanagans Sept. 12 letter: Letter outlines conservative beliefs, such as life, liberty.

As we learned in grammar school, the reference to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, which is based on Lockean philosophy, is enshrined not in the U.S. Constitution but rather in the Declaration of Independence.

Perhaps Ms. Flanagan has been deluded by the renowned Fox News history scholars like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, or this may just be another example of Republican revisionist history.

I was also surprised by our presidents lack of conservative intelligence a few months ago when he decided to release a highly classified U.S. spy satellite photo taken over Iran.

Thanks to his display of childish pique, his tyrannical buddies who govern Russia, China, North Korea and our many other adversaries now know the trajectory of this super-secret satellite and can take evasive actions to thwart it.

Once again Trump had undermined our own intelligence and military services and helped those who would destroy us.

I guess thats why he donates his presidential salary; somebody else is going to be paying him substantially in the future.

Had anyone else released this photo, they would be in Leavenworth Prison.
