On Election Day, I will enthusiastically vote for Dana Staples for Auburn City Councilor, confident that he would represent the residents of our city with great dedication.

As chair of the Auburn Global Plan 2020 Update Committee, Dana has demonstrated leadership that has helped advance varied discussions on key issues for Auburn’s future. He currently sits on the Auburn Planning Council, the Auburn Parks and Recreation Advisory Council, and has served on many other municipal committees as well.

Dana earns the respect of others by learning as much as she can, listening carefully, and working diligently to find common ground between different perspectives – qualities important for leadership at all levels.

As a board member of the Androscoggin Land Trust, I have greatly appreciated Dana’s support for our organization, which he extends to many other local non-profit organizations.

I hope the residents of Auburn will join me in voting for Dana Staples in November.

Trussville Witches Ride raises funds for 7-year-old boy with leukemia https://cedarsinnauburn.com/trussville-witches-ride-raises-funds-for-7-year-old-boy-with-leukemia/ https://cedarsinnauburn.com/trussville-witches-ride-raises-funds-for-7-year-old-boy-with-leukemia/#respond Fri, 22 Oct 2021 16:52:33 +0000 https://cedarsinnauburn.com/trussville-witches-ride-raises-funds-for-7-year-old-boy-with-leukemia/

TRUSSVILLE, Alabama (WIAT) – The Witches of Trussville Unite!

Nolan Trowbridge

This weekend, several women will bring their brooms together for the annual Trussville Witches Ride to raise money for the chemotherapy treatment of 7-year-old Nolan Trowbridge.

From the age of 3 to the age of six, Trowbridge underwent chemotherapy to treat leukemia. Just weeks after he was in good health, his family learned that he would likely need another three years of treatment.

Using the Witch registration fee, the proceeds will go to the Trowbridge family to help cover the costs of healthcare.

Witches first came together for a similar cause last year. In 2020, the Trussville Witches Ride Board registered nearly 100 witches. Entering their second year, they have already tripled the number of participants.

“Trussville is known for supporting its community and embracing those in need,” said Christy McDonald, Trussville Witches Ride board member. “This is exactly what is happening right now.”

The ride will start at 4 p.m. Saturday at Cahaba Primary School and end at Ferus Artisan Ales. The Witches will also be holding an afterparty from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Trussville Entertainment District, where fundraising efforts will continue.

Participating witches must register. Until Friday, the day before the witch hike, the registration fee is $ 30 the day before the hike and will be $ 40 on the day of the event.

Years of experience as a city councilor have only reinforced my belief that it is local government that has the most impact on daily life. I am proud to stand alongside our local service providers and my work on City Council aims to ensure that these local government services are reliable and always there for us.

During this year’s campaign, I listened to many voters. People say progress has been made in recent years. Listening to people’s ideas, I have identified a platform that will allow our city to continue working to improve recent successes. If I am re-elected, my work will focus on the following points: 1.) maintaining fiscal stability, so that the city remains affordable for property taxpayers; 2.) fight to protect Owasco Lake, the source of our drinking water; 3.) improve our quality of life by expanding neighborhood clean-up initiatives and funding humanitarian aid for people with addictions; 4.) Take advantage of improvements made to our parks and playgrounds by planning recreation for our young people; and, 5.) economic development which includes workforce training initiatives so that job creators can be confident that Auburn is an ideal place to establish and grow a business.

Together, we can build on success and keep Auburn in a stable direction. I ask for your vote, to serve you another four years on city council. Election day is Tuesday, November 2. I respectfully ask for your vote.

Terry Cuddy is an Auburn city councilor running for re-election.

Texan football makes ‘late push’ with 4-star OT Kam Dewberry https://cedarsinnauburn.com/texan-football-makes-late-push-with-4-star-ot-kam-dewberry/ https://cedarsinnauburn.com/texan-football-makes-late-push-with-4-star-ot-kam-dewberry/#respond Thu, 21 Oct 2021 21:13:17 +0000 https://cedarsinnauburn.com/texan-football-makes-late-push-with-4-star-ot-kam-dewberry/

There are only a few months left before that cycle is officially over for the 2022 Texas Soccer Scout Class. And there are less than two months until the early signing period arrives in December. This makes the next few weeks on the recruiting track crucial for new head coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff.

Of all the Texas assistants, the one who has probably found the hottest stretch on the scouting track since late summer is new defensive line coach Bo Davis. Since the end of the offseason, Davis and the Longhorns have caught fire on the recruiting tracks that land along the defensive line.

Texas have notched commitments from four-star defensive linemen and forwards J’mond Tapp, Jaray Bledsoe, Judge Finkley and more, since late August. The defensive line appears to be by far the strongest and deepest group of positions in the 2022 Longhorns class at this point. And it will be difficult to reverse this trend.

But it looks like a lot of attention is turning to the offensive line ahead of the early signing period. Texas need help, especially in the offensive tackle position. One of the primary targets to help fill a need for offensive tackle depth in the 2022 class is the vaunted four-star Atascocita product, Kam Dewberry.

However, Texas seems to be going in the right direction with Dewberry at this point. According to an Oct. 20 Horns247 report (paid content), Texas and new offensive line coach / coordinator Kyle Flood are doing a solid “late push” to try and land a commitment from Dewberry.

Texan football has a late run with 4-star OT Kam Dewberry

Dewberry is reportedly considering either the Longhorns or the Alabama Crimson Tide for where he will make his final visit this fall on a game weekend. But this Horns247 article mentions that Dewberry is likely bending over to make his last visit to Texas over Alabama.

He was on campus for a visit in September for the season opener against Louisiana. But it was a pretty impromptu visit at the time.

If Texas could get the last visit with Dewberry this fall, that would be a huge development. Getting the last word in a recruiting as open as Dewberry’s would be huge for Texas.

Dewberry’s last visit to the Longhorns, aside from the season opener last month, was unofficial on June 12. Since then he has visited the Oklahoma Sooners, the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Texas A&M Aggies. It also appears that the LSU Tigers are still involved in his recruiting. Admittedly, that could be shaky now after the deal between LSU and head coach Ed Orgeron to go their separate ways at the end of the season.

Texas don’t have any commitments that play offensive tackle right now in the 2022 Longhorns class. Landing someone like Dewberry, or being able to reverse the engagement of Summer Creek five-star offensive tackle Kelvin Banks of the Oregon Ducks would be great.

BlockFi Page Explains Regulatory Position on Interest-Paying Crypto Accounts https://cedarsinnauburn.com/blockfi-page-explains-regulatory-position-on-interest-paying-crypto-accounts/ https://cedarsinnauburn.com/blockfi-page-explains-regulatory-position-on-interest-paying-crypto-accounts/#respond Thu, 21 Oct 2021 16:37:49 +0000 https://cedarsinnauburn.com/blockfi-page-explains-regulatory-position-on-interest-paying-crypto-accounts/

This week on New York Attorney General announced that it has asked two crypto firms to suspend their lending programs. In addition, the AG said it has opened an investigation into three other companies. It was all based on the claim that interest earned on crypto loans is considered security. While it was not immediately clear if anyone had complained about these programs, the GA is clearly targeting “unregulated” crypto firms.

BlockFi, one of the most successful crypto service providers that has garnered the backing of a renowned VC battalion, is NOT based in New York but across the river in New Jersey. While BlockFi hasn’t said anything (at least not yet) regarding NYAG actions, it does host a page explaining the regulatory environment for BlockFi Interest Accounts.

Noting that these accounts are not FDIC insured, BlockFi states:

“BlockFi’s BIAs have been the subject of recent activity by securities regulators in New Jersey, Texas, Alabama, Vermont and Kentucky, and we are in active dialogue with them. regulatory authorities. We believe that our products and services are legal and appropriate for participants in the crypto market, and we remain true to our commitment to protect the rights of consumers to earn interest on their crypto assets. We welcome discussions with regulators and believe that proper regulation of this industry is key to its future success. “

All of these regulatory measures began last July with two C&D from New Jersey and Kentucky.

So what’s the catch?

New Jersey says:

“BlockFi allows investors to buy BIAs [BlockFi Interest Accounts] by depositing certain eligible cryptocurrencies into accounts at BlockFi. BlockFi then aggregates these cryptocurrencies to finance its lending operations and proprietary transactions. In return for investing in BIAs, investors are promised an attractive interest rate that is paid monthly in cryptocurrency. BIAs are not protected by the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (the “SIPC”) or insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the “FDIC”). BIAs are subject to additional risk, compared to assets held with SIPC member brokers, or assets held in banks and savings associations, almost all of which are FDIC insured. They are also not registered with the Bureau or any other securities authority, nor exempt from registration. Despite the added risk and lack of guarantees and regulatory oversight, as of March 31, 2021, BlockFi held the equivalent of $ 14.7 billion from the sale of these unregistered securities in violation of securities law.

Kentucky joins similar claims that BlockFi is promoting up to 8.6% annual interest in parked crypto. Kentucky believes these savings accounts also come in the form of securities, in the form of investment contracts.

In July, BlockFi said that while the New Jersey order calls for preventing the creation of all new BIAs, it has no impact on current BIA customers or any of their other products.

“We are fully operational for all of our existing customers around the world, and you will continue to have access to all products, services and assets on BlockFi.”

Both regulatory measures could be characterized as law enforcement regulation.

Meanwhile, savers can park dollars in their local bank and earn a negative real rate of return. Yes, bank deposits are insured, but the increased return provided to crypto investors contains an attractive offer on a risk-adjusted reward basis.

Meanwhile, BlockFi continues to offer BIAs in many jurisdictions.

Led by the Major League Fishing Foundation and the Major League Fishing Angler Association, “Cast 4 Kids” was conceived from an idea within the MLF Foundation.

“Our goal at MLFAA and the MLF Foundation is to elevate the sport of fishing and there is no better way to do that than to introduce our fishermen to other professionals from other sports,” said MLF Foundation executive director Wes Long. “Additionally, our goal at the MLF Foundation is to extend the life of the sport by taking care of our fisheries and ensuring children are exposed to fishing from an early age. We look forward to raising money and hosting an event that will appeal to kids and parents.

Each professional fisherman will be paired with a professional baseball player to form the teams for the tournament. The tournament kick off will take place at Civitan Park in Guntersville.

The public will be invited to attend the tournament for free and meet their favorite professional fishermen and baseball players. The teams should be out of the water around 1 p.m. A weigh-in will take place and the winners will be announced in front of the crowd.

What is the next step for Cam Newton in AF after vaccination? https://cedarsinnauburn.com/what-is-the-next-step-for-cam-newton-in-af-after-vaccination/ https://cedarsinnauburn.com/what-is-the-next-step-for-cam-newton-in-af-after-vaccination/#respond Wed, 20 Oct 2021 22:40:35 +0000 https://cedarsinnauburn.com/what-is-the-next-step-for-cam-newton-in-af-after-vaccination/

Auburn football legend Cam Newton is doing all he can to make sure his NFL career doesn’t end with the former NFL MVP and Heisman winner losing the post of New England Patriots QB benefiting Mac freaking Jones.

Newton took the COVID-19 vaccine and is now a serious option for many teams who may not have considered it otherwise.

So what’s next for Newton in free agency now that his seemingly biggest hurdle has now been cleared?

Auburn football legend Cam Newton looks likely to join the Seattle Seahawks

The Tigers’ QB – who single-handedly lifted the 2010 Auburn football schedule to unparalleled heights in its history as a Heisman winner leading them to an undefeated national championship-winning season – should have several options, but the Seattle Seahawks probably appear to be his next destination.

One team seemingly in denial of their own situation is the Washington football team, who don’t want to consider Newton even with Taylor Heinicke as a starter:

Maybe sentimental value wins out here after Heinicke nearly upset eventual Super Bowl champion LV Tampa Bay Buccaneers. WFT could also wait for Ryan Fitzpatrick to return and don’t want a strong personality like Newton to come in and take the job. Bill Belichick cut Newton off due to the attention he attracts as a polarizing personality.

Either way, they got out. So are the Miami Dolphins, who appear determined to strike a deal with the Houston Texans for Deshaun Watson.

The Seahawks are clearly in contention, as head coach Pete Carroll revealed on ESPN radio 710 in Seattle:

Newton is a mobile QB as is Russell Wilson, who could be out until Week 10. FanSided’s Aryanna Prasad pointed out that the way they get their offense is different, however, with Newton reclaiming his rushing yards from racing games designed and Wilson acquiring his own from scrambling over interrupted passing games.

Yet Geno Smith is no reason to stick with the status quo. Sign Cam Newton, Seattle Seahawks… you’ll be better off.

Water bottles, beer cans, vape pins, oh my god !!!

While the insane actions of a few hundred fans made the post-game headlines following Tennessee’s 31-26 loss to No.13 Ole Miss, something that happened during the game deserves to be remembered. to be noted for moving forward: Flights can play a bit in defense in 2021.

The Rebels managed to run over 100 snaps in the win, but Lane Kiffin’s dynamic offense averaged just 5.0 yards per game (his second-lowest total of the season) and didn’t. scored only 7 points after halftime. The real Saturday scares so many Flights fans who were worried about this weekend? Well, through 7 games, Tim Banks‘ cobblestone unit seems to have allayed those fears.

We will know in the next few weeks against No. 4 Alabama and No. 1 Georgia if the Tennessee defense is only “OK” or really legitimate, but given the current roster, a group that was stripped of studs massively exceeded expectations.

“We were probably the thinnest football team in America when we started,” coach Josh Heupel said after Saturday’s game.

“But the fighting and the competitive spirit inside our locker room, the desire to play for the guy next to you because you love him and are up for anything. We are developing and growing in the right way.

With “worse players” and less acclaimed staff, the Vols are a significantly better defense in 2021 compared to 2020 – in virtually every category.

Under former head coach Jeremy Pruitt and coordinator Derek Ansley last season, the Vols allowed 5.83 yards per game. They had a strong running defense (3.68 yards per carry) paired with a leaky secondary (8.5 yards per allowed attempt). They were mostly safe from the havoc (just 20 sacks) and forced few turnovers (10 total in 10 games).

Yet despite a list pilloried by the transfer portal – UT had to replace their top tackle (now Alabama linebacker Henry To’o To’o), 2nd best linebacker (now State linebacker). Michigan Quavaris Crouch), top 2 passer (Arkansas State defensive end Kivon Bennett and Miami edge Deandre Johnson), his No.1 cornerback (Bryce Thompson) and other notable contributors this offseason – Banks produced a competitive unit without a name.

Most, including yours, thought Tennessee would have one of the SEC’s worst defenses this fall, but in a simpler picture, the Vols think less and play fast. And it works.

Tennessee leads the SEC in loss tackles (62). He has more interceptions (8-5) than he did all last season. The Vols are tougher against the run (3.54 yards per carry) and pass (6.3 yards per attempt). They are mediocre in 3rd tries, but they are certainly better in this key area than they were a year ago (40.7% opponent conversion rate vs. 47.9%).

Under Banks, enigmatic junior inside linebacker Jeremy Banks delivered on his promise as a top rookie, leading the team in loss tackles (9.0) and sacks (4.5). Veteran defensive backs Theo Jackson and Alontae Taylor, who both had far too many ups and downs with previous staff, have become stable and consistent performers.

Perhaps most impressive, Tennessee’s new staff have found helpful ways to use the tools they have to work with. Linebackers Solon Page III and Aaron Beasley were deemed ill-equipped (i.e. too small, not good enough) to play in Pruitt’s 3-4 scheme, but their speed worked very well in the hybrid scheme. by Banks. The freshman coordinator has also found some helpful ways to get guys like defensive lineman Ja’Quain Blakely – a super-senior with 15 career total tackles coming in in 2021 who already has 20 tackles and 4.0. for the loss this fall – and outside linebacker Roman Harrison more involved.

No one is surprised that Heupel and his new staff produced an attack capable of fireworks and fun. The air raid works, especially against the poor defenses (see: Pitt, South Carolina, and Mizzou), but the defensive progress of the first year is something few – if any – expected. It’s a tough road ahead against Bryce Young & Co., but if Banks’ unit can play well overall for the rest of the season, then Tennessee’s comeback in the SEC East hierarchy doesn’t look as steep as it does. ‘2 months ago.
