Head injury, including concussion, continues to be a concern in youth sports and it especially present in lacrosse – they are among the five most frequent injuries for both boys and girls high school lacrosse.It is important to understand that even when the highest standards are kept, no current helmet can eliminate concussions. All current helmet standards are designed to reduce the risk of severe brain injury and skull fracture, not to prevent concussion. There are substantial efforts towards developing standards and helmets that can reduce the risk of concussions, but this remains a challenge.It is important to be aware of signs and symptoms of concussion and be prepared to take care of the injured. Tribe Lacrosse has experienced coaches who closely monitor athletes and if any of them exhibits signs, symptoms or behaviors suggestive of a concussion he shall be removed from practice or competition. Athletes are advised not to return to play until evaluated by a healthcare professional with experience in the evaluation and management of concussions. Athletes diagnosed with or suspected of a concussion should not return to activity for the remainder of that day.If you want to learn more about lacrosse and how to join the team you can visit http://tribelacrosse.org/ or call (530) 988TLAX.

Peck has 20-plus years’ experience covering the mortgage industry, he most recently served as Editor-in-Chief for The Mortgage Press and National Mortgage Professional Magazine.

After graduating, he began his professional career with Videography Magazine before landing in the mortgage space. Peck has edited three published books and has served as Copy Editor for Entrepreneur.com. Home / Daily Dose / Despite Federal Actions, Q1 Foreclosures Rise An analysis of Q1 foreclosures by ATTOM Data Solutions has found that there were a total of 33,699 U.S. properties with foreclosure filings—default notices, scheduled auctions, or bank repossessions—during the first quarter of 2021, up 9% from the previous quarter, but down 78% year-over-year.The Q1 2021 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report also shows a total of 11,880 U.S. properties with foreclosure filings in March 2021, up 5% over February 2021, but down 75% from March 2020’s totals, marking the second consecutive month with month-over-month increases in U.S. foreclosure activity.”The foreclosure moratorium on government-backed loans has virtually stopped foreclosure activity over the past year,” said Rick Sharga, EVP of RealtyTrac, an ATTOM Data Solutions company. “But mortgage servicers have been able to begin foreclosure actions on vacant and abandoned properties, which benefits neighborhoods and communities. It’s likely that these foreclosures are causing the slight uptick we’ve seen over the past few months.”Nationwide, one in every 4,078 housing units had a foreclosure filing in the first quarter of 2021. States with the highest foreclosure rates were Delaware, with one in every 1,705 housing units with a foreclosure filing; Illinois, with one in every 2,175 housing units; Florida, with one in every 2,237 housing units; Indiana, with one in every 2,397 housing units; and Ohio, with one in every 2,500 housing units.Lenders began foreclosure proceedings on 17,652 U.S. properties in Q1 2021, up 3% from Q4 2020, but down 78% year-over-year. States that saw the greatest quarterly increase in foreclosure starts and had 500 or more foreclosure starts in Q1 2021, included California (up 36%); Ohio (up 25%); North Carolina (up 15%); Virginia (up 11%); and South Carolina (up 10%).Lenders repossessed 7,320 U.S. properties through foreclosure (REO) in Q1, up 14% from the previous quarter, but down 87% from a year ago. The states with the greatest number of REOs in Q1 2021 were Florida (945 REOs); Illinois (610 REOs); California (414 REOs); Texas (370 REOs); and Arizona (330 REOs).And with emergency federal foreclosure protections eventually set to expire, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) recently proposed changes to help prevent an impending wave of foreclosures.”The government’s foreclosure moratorium, and the CARES Act mortgage forbearance program have extended foreclosure timelines for owner-occupied homes by a full year,” Sharga said. “Hopefully, this extra time will give financially-distressed homeowners the chance to get back on their feet, and work with their lenders to avoid a foreclosure when the government programs expire.”The CFPB forecasts that if current trends continue, there may be nearly 1.7 million loans at least 90 days delinquent come September 2021. Foreclosures have an average cost to borrowers of at least $12,500, with neighboring homes also losing value, and sale prices dropping by 1%-1.6% after nearby foreclosure sales.

Gambling is devolved in Northern Ireland, but substantially reserved in Scotland and Wales. However, as of 23 May 2016, the Scottish Parliament and Scottish Ministers have the executive and legislative competence to vary the number of high-staking gaming machines authorised by a new betting premises licence in Scotland. Under the Wales Act 2017, identical powers were transferred to the Welsh Ministers and the National Assembly for Wales. We are committed to working constructively with devolved administrations as we move towards implementation of the £2 stake limit on B2 gaming machines. B1 machines are in casinos with a maximum stake of £5 with a maximum pay-out of £10,000 (or progressive jackpot of £20,000) B3 machines are located in casino, betting, arcade and bingo venues with a maximum stake of £2 and a maximum pay-out of £500. Remote Gaming Duty is paid by all companies who earn revenue through offering online gaming to British residents. It is currently set at 15% of operator’s profits. Public Health England will carry out a review of the evidence relating to the public health harms of gambling. The Industry Group for Responsible Gambling (IGRG) has amended its code to ensure that a responsible gambling message will appear for the duration of all TV adverts. Problem gambling can devastate individuals’ lives, families and communities. It is right that we take decisive action now to ensure a responsible gambling industry that protects the most vulnerable in our society. By reducing FOBT stakes to £2 we can help stop extreme losses by those who can least afford it. While we want a healthy gambling industry that contributes to the economy, we also need one that does all it can to protect players. We are increasing protections around online gambling, doing more on research, education and treatment of problem gambling and ensuring tighter rules around gambling advertising. We will work with the industry on the impact of these changes and are confident that this innovative sector will step up and help achieve this balance. In addition to the reduction to FOBT stakes the government has today confirmed: A major multi-million pound advertising campaign promoting responsible gambling, supported by industry and GambleAware, will be launched later this year. The maximum stakes on Fixed Odds Betting Terminals (FOBTs) are to be reduced from £100 to £2 to reduce the risk of gambling-related harm, Minister for Sport and Civil Society Tracey Crouch announced today.The move comes off the back of a consultation with the public and the industry to ensure that we have the right balance between a sector that can grow and contribute to the economy and one that is socially responsible and doing all it should to protect consumers and communities.The government wants to reduce the potential for large losses on FOBT (category B2) machines and the risk of harm to both the player and wider communities. Following analysis of consultation responses and advice from the Gambling Commission, the government believes that a cut to £2 will best achieve this.The Gambling Commission has also been tasked to take forward discussions with the industry to improve player protection measures on B1 and B3 category machines, looking at spend and time limits.DCMS Secretary of State Matt Hancock said: When faced with the choice of halfway measures or doing everything we can to protect vulnerable people, we have chosen to take a stand. These machines are a social blight and prey on some of the most vulnerable in society, and we are determined to put a stop to it and build a fairer society for all. Minister for Sport and Civil Society Tracey Crouch said: As part of the next licence competition the age limit for playing National Lottery games will be reviewed, to take into accounts developments in the market and the risk of harm to young people. In order to cover any negative impact on the public finances, and to protect funding for vital public services, this change will be linked to an increase in Remote Gaming Duty, paid by online gaming operators, at the relevant Budget.Changes to the stake will be through secondary legislation. The move will need parliamentary approval and we will also engage with the gambling industry to ensure it is given sufficient time to implement and complete the technological changes.Notes to EditorsFor further information please contact: DCMS Press Office on: 020 7211 6276 / 6971 The Gambling Commission will toughen up protections around online gambling including stronger age verification rules and proposals to require operators to set limits on consumers’ spending until affordability checks have been conducted.

By Michele J. KuhnFAIR HAVEN – What began as a “three-ring circus” for Judy McMaster ended more than six hours later as a graceful, elegant showplace filled with holiday décor.The Garden Club of Fair Haven’s Judy McMaster was the coordinator of holiday decorating at the governor’s official residence.McMaster of Rumson was this year’s coordinator of holiday decorating at Drumthwacket, the New Jersey governor’s official residence. As a member of the Garden Club of Fair Haven and a board member of the Garden Clubs of New Jersey, McMaster recruited garden club members from across the state to fill the mansion at 354 Stockton St. (Route 206) in Princeton with gorgeous greenery and sparkling trees.She even suggested this year’s theme: “Drumthwacket Sings the Songs of the Season.”Each of the six first-floor public rooms in the white Greek Revival mansion was dressed to the nines in holiday finery in accordance with popular holiday songs and Christmas carols. The front porch was decorated with the idea of There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays. The entry foyer, stairway and landing took on the musical and decorative notes of Deck the Halls. The music room took its cue from The Nutcracker Suite and the library, Winter Wonderland. The parlor was the embodiment of The Holly and the Ivy. Jingle Bells was the song used for the governor’s study and the dining room took on the look of Silver Bells because it is the place where the formal silver service from the battleship the USS New Jersey is displayed year-round.The volunteer job was a joy for McMaster who has loved to decorate since she was a child. As a Fair Haven garden club member, she has been part of the crew several times which has volunteered to decorate the mansion.Each year the workers arrive at 9 a.m. on the Monday after Thanksgiving – this year it was Nov. 26. They spend about 45 minutes unloading their materials – dried, fresh and faux – and then each team goes to work on the room they have been assigned and designed to celebrate the holidays.The decorating of the mansion had a little something special this year, occurring only four weeks after Super Storm Sandy. Among the garden club members who agreed to decorate were members of the Garden Club of Keyport. “They were decimated but they didn’t back out,” McMaster said. They designed and installed the décor in the parlor. The club from Toms River, “also decimated, did the entry foyer.” The other clubs that participated were from Shrewsbury, Warren, Basking Ridge, and Mountain Lakes.The materials used were all donated by the clubs and an event planner who decorated the front porch. Some of the money for the decorations each year comes from the clubs’ treasuries and sometimes from the designers’ pockets. “It’s getting to be expensive,” McMaster said.Because of the duration the decorations are on display, the garden clubs have been using some faux materials along with the greenery and fresh flowers. Among the items used this year were magnolia branches “which dry well,” orchids in pots, birch and white-painted branches along with holly, ivy and evergreens plus pinecones, ribbons and ornaments.The decorating of the governor’s mansion is a longtime service project for the Garden Clubs of New Jersey. As this year’s coordinator, McMaster invited various clubs to volunteer their talents, made sure they understood the perimeters of the job and then organized the decorating day. She also will supervise the dismantling of the decorations on Jan. 2.“The house is used throughout the season for events – political and social events,” McMaster said. “Last year, the Christies used the house pretty much from the time the kids got out of school until they went back. They hosted family and friends and I think that’s the plan again this year.”The dining room of Drumthwacket.McMaster’s favorite Drumthwacket room is the dining room. “It’s amazing,” she said. “I’m guessing that table seats 24.“I like the whole house,” she said. “I think it’s a gracious home, not overdone. I think it’s a comfortable home.”McMaster was very pleased with the results of this year’s decorating. “I think this was, if not the best, than one of the best ever,” she said. “Every room was really elegant and tastefully done.“I just like doing this,” she said. “I like the planning stages, the concept, in my mind’s eye of what it needs … It’s a lot of fun.“It’s great for all the garden clubs to get together and do something cooperatively,” McMaster said.Construction of Drumthwacket began in 1835. The estate’s name means “wooded hill” in Scottish Gaelic. The property was purchased by the state in 1966 but it wasn’t until 1981 that the New Jersey Historical Society raised the funds to begin converting the property for use as the governor’s mansion.
By John Burton |RED BANK — President Donald Trump’s action last week, laying the groundwork for the possible repeal of what is commonly called DACA, has its supporters. But it has others fearful for their future.“We’re not a whole load of bad people,” said 19-year-old Red Bank resident Javier Veliz, a self-described “dreamer” who now faces an uncertain future given the president’s move. “We’re here like everybody else, to acquire the American Dream.”Veliz has been living in the United States for 18 years, since his family entered the country without documentation from their native Guatemala. Because of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), President Barack Obama’s 2012 executive order, Veliz was able to get a valid driver’s license, work a job on the books paying state and federal taxes, and begin studying mechanical engineering at Brookdale Community College. “All these things that people take for granted,” he said.U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Sept. 5 that the president would be rescinding President Obama’s executive order within six months if Congress fails to act upon it. Should Trump carry through on his repeal, these young people could face the loss of employment and educational opportunities and possibly deportation for them and family members, since federal officials have access to their personal information from their initial DACA applications.No one who is not currently participating can enroll, and for existing participants everything is now on hold.Faced with congressional inaction on the long-languishing DREAM (Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors) Act, Obama in 2012 signed his executive order creating DACA. The order allowed those who came as minors (younger than 16) to the U.S. illegally with their families, to legally work, pursue higher education and apply for financial aid, and serve in the military, giving them access to the “American Dream,” hence the name “dreamers.” Proponents saw this as a humane way to help those who really had no part in violating immigration law lead productive lives.Opponents, such as Sessions when he was a U.S. senator, and Trump, called it a violation of the rule of law. Trump who, when he was on the campaign trail, criticized it as unconstitutional and an attempt to usurp Congress’ role in the immigration debate.Trump was facing pushback for not fulfilling his campaign pledge to repeal DACA, resulting in nine Republican state attorneys general bringing suit against the president. And Trump’s decision to repeal the Obama-era order met with approval from stalwart Trump supporters.Barbara Gonzalez, co-founder of the Bayshore Tea Party Group, a conservative grassroots organization operating in the Bayshore area, voiced support last week for the president’s action. In an email message Gonzalez said, “What President Trump is doing, by giving it to Congress to come up with a better plan, is the way it should be done and should have been done in the first place.”Gonzalez went on to say: “We must take care of our own country in order to be helpful to anyone else. We must fix the immigration system so it works better, but we cannot just allow people to come to our country illegally and act like it never happened…”But there was loud and substantial criticism for Trump’s move. It came from some fellow Republicans and political opponents, civil rights and advocacy groups from around the country, from the Catholic Church and other religious groups. “I don’t believe this decision represents the best of our national spirit or the consensus of the American people. This decision reflects only the polarization of our political moment,” said Archbishop Jose H. Gomez, Los Angeles, chair of the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration, in a released statement.Steve Bannon, former Trump chief strategist, criticized the Catholic groups for their criticism on the Sept. 10 episode of CBS’s “60 Minutes,” alleging the Church has “an economic interest in unlimited immigration, unlimited illegal immigration.”Frank Argote-Freyre, director of the Latino Coalition of New Jersey, a Freehold-based advocacy group, said this measure has the potential to disrupt the lives of approximately 22,000 in New Jersey who are participating in the DACA program. According to some sources, as many as 800,000 are registered nationally with the program.Argote-Freyre called DACA, “A lifeline, a thread of hope,” for many. Looking to repeal it, he added, “It just feels like a betrayal of American values…It’s heartbreaking, really.”Jocelyn Rojas is a 21-year-old Red Bank resident, a “dreamer” who, along with other area students from immigrant families, started the Del Otro Lado Club in the borough, which seeks to offer support and facilitate resources for the Latino community, hoping to build a bridge between Hispanics and the established community. Rojas said she knows of approximately 100 dreamers in Red Bank alone. “We’re all definitely worried about what could happen,” she said.“It’s improved my quality of life all around,” said Monica Urena, 21, a Red Bank resident, of DACA. She’s been able to get her driver’s license, which allowed her family to have a car and transportation; it’s allowed her to get a work permit and get a job; and as a Rutgers University student, majoring in international business, she was able to obtain an internship with a New York City financial firm. “I wouldn’t have been able to do any of that without it,” she said.Urena said a lot of her friends are worried the administration will repeal DACA. Urena’s concerns sometimes lead her to ask herself, “Why am I getting a degree if I’m not going to be able to get employed?”This is a work in progress and the last chapter is far from written. Trump himself, despite the strong rhetoric during his campaign, has lately moderated his words and tone on the Dreamers. “I have a great heart for the people we’re talking about, a great love for them,” he said last week during a White House meeting on tax reform. The president also maintained he would revisit the issue should Congress fail to address it legislatively.Argote-Freyre doesn’t hold out much hope for congressional action, given the lack of movement on the issue during both the George W. Bush and Obama administrations. “Given that paralysis,” he said, “I don’t see what magically will change now.”For those young people in the Two River area who fear for their future, the strategy now is to make their voices heard and force Congress’ hand in finally addressing immigration issues.“I see these kids. They tell me they want a life, they want a future,” said Alvaro Aguilar, speaking of the younger generation he comes in contact with as he coaches soccer in his hometown of Red Bank. “And that’s why I will fight for this.”Alvaro Aguilar of Red Bank, right, and other members of the immigrant advocacy group Movimiento Cosecha demonstrated outside Trump Tower on New York’s Fifth Avenue last week and were arrested for failing to disperse.Aguilar, 29, has taken advantage of DACA to work and is involved with Movimiento Cosecha, a loose-knit, nationwide immigrant advocacy group. Aguilar and other members demonstrated out side Trump Tower on New York’s Fifth Avenue last week and were arrested for failing to disperse. “I wanted to do this for them, to let them know they’re not alone,” he said. “We’ve got to do this together.”The thought of DACA ending is upsetting to Urena. “DACA is an amazing program and it’s given me so much. But the reality is it’s a Band-Aid on a really big issue that needs to be addressed,” she said. “I’m hoping instead of this being a negative thing, it’s actually going to be the push we need for Congress to finally change and reform the immigration system.”On the legal front, Democratic state attorneys general from 16 states, led by New York’s Eric Schneiderman, have filed a lawsuit looking to block the reversal of Obama’s executive order establishing DACA. As part of their legal argument, the attorneys general allege, among other assertions, Trump has displayed in his public comments a racial animus toward some ethnic groups that have relied on the program, Schneiderman has told media outlets.They expect to make their initial arguments before a federal judge within the coming weeks, Schneiderman added.This article was first published in the Sept. 14-21, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.
