Suspension is route 3 Mont Lis $40.75 $49.50 $62.50 Steeler James Harrison is the embodiment of a professional football player a big Tough determined. You Don t become a bowl selection for the past three seasons by playing at the margins last sunday or. Harrison found himself in the thick of More than a game. The league fined him $75,000 for a helmet to neck hit on Cleveland s Mohamed Massaquoi. Across the league new England s Brandon Meriweather and Atlanta s Dunta Robinson were fined $50,000 each for hits in their games. If or. Harrison violates the rules again the nil says he could be suspended. Or. Harrison is not alone in believing his hits were within the rules and Steeles president Art Rooney said he supports his linebacker s decision to Appeal the Fine. Neither Man wants the nil to water Down its Brand of football. Or. Harrison and other players complained that the league s enforcement of the Rule that prohibits Quot using any part of the player s helmet or face mask to butt Spear or ram an opponent violently or unnecessarily Quot leaves them wondering How to make a Legal hit. The dilemma is that damage from a concussion can appear insignificant at first but players Are eager to get Back in the game. The Long guest editorial term effects of repeated concussions can remain invisible for years yet the consequences particularly from repeated head injuries can be debilitating. If the nil wants players to take these damaging hits seriously it has to do More than impose fines which Are like parking tickets to millionaire athletes. Game suspensions should get their attention. And during play the referees should be throwing their flags for these offences. The nil and its teams have been taking concussions and brain injuries More seriously particularly when High profile players Are forced into retirement retired players have been diagnosed with conditions normally associated with much older men and Congress is holding hearings on the subject. On any Given sunday there s a need for a More aggressive approach against aggression. The nil must crack Down with every tool it has. A Pittsburgh Post Gazette if i were running for governor in my state of Maryland Here s a speech i would give this weekend injecting a fresh idea into the Campaign. Quot i will propose a new Law to encourage cohabiting couples to marry. Most out of Wedlock births Are to couples who Are committed enough to each other to live together. These births Are not to couples in one night stands. However most cohabitation end within 18 months. Quot census recently reported that 7.5 million couples Are living together in 2010. This is a 17-fold increase from the 430,000 who were doing so in 1960. Yet Only 1.4 million of those couples will marry. Four of five cohabiting couples break up before there is a wedding. Quot in addition according to a Penn state study couples who marry after living together Are 61 percent More Likely to divorce than couples who remained apart until the wedding. Quot half of cohabiting couples said they were testing the relationship or were in a trial marriage Quot however that s a myth. Cohabitation is More like a trial divorce in which nine out of 10 relationships fail. They will either break up in a premarital divorce or in a real one. Quot for Maryland this is not an academic question. Divorce and unwed births Are the two engines driving up the costs of government. It is one of the major reasons for the yawning deficits Maryland and other states face. On average each divorce involves one child. The unwed or divorced Mother of a child is eligible for welfare medicaid housing and Day care subsidies food Stamps Etc. According to the heritage foundation the 13 million single parents with children Cost taxpayers $20,000 each or $260 billion in 2004. That Michael Mcmanus a ethics amp religion is probably $300 billion today. Quot what does this mean for Maryland of the state s 78,100 births in 2007, 41 percent were to unwed mothers above the National average. Those 32,000 babies have the worst possible future prospects in life. If the baby s father is living with the Mother the Odds Are 80 percent that he will leave her and the child. But what if the couple marries More than half will divorce and that child will be abandoned by one Parent. Maryland had 15,200 divorces last year which probably involved one child each. Quot therefore taxpayers face a Cost of $640 million a year for one year of out of Wedlock births and $304 million More per year for the state s divorces or about $1 billion for each added year these huge costs Are 61 percent Federal and 39 percent state. Quot the costs go far beyond these numbers both to the children and to the state. According to a study by the heritage foundation children from fatherless Homes Are a five times More Likely to commit suicide than those from intact Homes with married parents a seven times More Apt to become teenage mothers or to drop out of school a fifteen times More Apt to end up in prison As a teenager a thirty three times More Likely to be seriously abused requiring medical attention a seventy three times More Likely to be killed. Quot if elected governor i will make it my priority to reduce this carnage. How Here Are some ideas 1. I will create a Maryland marriage commission. It will include key Church and government officials plus leaders in the marriage movement. 2. No Cost government measures i will require state welfare offices to provide information on the value of marriage in reducing poverty and increasing wealth happiness and longer lives. For example married men live 10 years longer than single men and women 4 years longer publicly funded birth control clinics will provide information on the benefits of marriage. Public schools can make a Case for not having children until marriage. 3. Reduce anti marriage penalties currently if cohabiting couples marry they lose welfare medicaid food Stamps housing subsidies Etc. I propose to extend state benefits for a year if they marry and agree to take courses to improve their communication and conflict Resolution skills. That will encourage Many to marry which is what is Best for them and their children. After that year i will taper off subsidies by 25 percent per year. Since married men earn More than single men they won t need subsidies Long term. Quot in time government costs would drop by huge amounts perhaps half of the current outlays saving hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars. Quot Maryland can be the first state to reduce cohabitation and raise the marriage rate to give our children and their parents a brighter future. Thank old photo album this photo was taken in 1972 of the Stanley Bowser family at their farm in Root where they were making Apple butter As they did every year. From left Are Mae Bowser Mucciola Phyllis Bowser wife of Jim Bowse Bill Bowser and Betty Bowser Gordon. Betty just celebrated her 80th birthday in August and is still making Apple butter at her Home in Root. The picture was submitted by Betty s son Terry Gordon. Incentives to marry t think it think it think he upcoming elections All have one thing in common. There s a higher than average level of hysteria about what it All Means. The constant analysis from every Corner of the Media and the steady Stream of to ads is wearing us All out. Instead of making for a Richer discussion about health care new jobs or immigration we be gotten bogged Down in mass worry. We Are spending a lot of time thinking about what s not happening. The question that the Media and politicians want to stir up in t about solving what s right in front of us but an open ended query about whether or not we can Stop unknown catastrophes in the future. There s a list of tempting choices like possible terrorists on our soil or Wall Street running amok or health care being denied to seniors. That one about Wall Street gives me a pause occasionally. However we can Only create change in the Day that we re actually in by taling the next Small step in i ont of us. Looking out at the horizon and worrying generally leads to doing nothing at All. Besides most of what we fret about never actually happens. Even worse while we were so Busy trying to prognosticate we miss opportunities to build something that would improve enrich and stretch the boundaries of our communities for the better. Imagine if All of those Early pioneers had first worried about what might happen when heading Westward. They d never have left at All. If we were to just insist that the topics be kept to what each politician plans to do next we d finally have a clearer picture of where they actually stand on each Issue. It d probably be More Boring but Good government in t supposed to be entertaining. It s not too late to step Back and take a look at where each candidate in your area stands on the issues that matter to Martha Carr a syndicated columnist you. Go to their individual web Sites and Start Reading. Pay careful attention to whether or not there Are any quantifiable suggestions about How they plan to accomplish the tasks. Or Are there loads of Broad statements about what could go wrong or How things ought to look without any specifics from them on How they la accomplish their goals. We Don t need a lot of details but get enough to see if the candidate really knows How to handle the role. That would be a minimum in a Job interview. If any of the rest of us was asked in an interview How we d strengthen the Bottom line and All we said was losing Market share was bad for business we d be shown the door. Yet somehow we get turned around by the pundits and attack ads till we Are so Wor ried about what s not actually happening that we forget to ask the right questions. So with the two weeks we have left visit your candidates web Sites and bring along a few questions that apply specifically to your current situation. Look for answers on health care that you need to know for the upcoming year and see if they have specific Steps to a solution. Take the same approach to making sure the infrastructure such As roads and schools Are. Up to dated in Luibl. Is can even use the same process to determine if there s any kind of reasonable Steps to create new jobs or Are they Only pointing out we need them. Thanks we already knew that one. Then prioritize the list in order of what needs doing most. Every family knows that there May be a Long list but they can t All get done at once for a variety of reasons. One of the biggest is the budget. Ask where the Money is coming from to pay for All of it. Don t get distracted by the alarmists who insist that we need to do it now and can worry about paying for it later. Take into consideration How each decision will affect the Community right around you. Armed with that much information you la be Able to turn off your to for awhile and go hang out with friends and family instead. Make sure and vote thought thought not All bad things in life turn out to be bad things. Scripture and we know that in All things god works for the Good of those who love him who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8 28 prayer dear lord so Many times when bad things come our Way it is difficult to comprehend How anything Good could Ever be accomplished by it. Help me to always remember that in All things you Are working for my Good so that i May maintain a positive attitude even in the greatest times of darkness in my life. moments copyright 2010 by Elizabeth Whetstone weekend gallery
