ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. (KSTP) – From house fires… to house calls… a firefighter’s job description might be expanding. The St. Louis Park Fire Department, along with a few other departments around the metro, is working with Park Nicollet to help recently-discharged patients. The plan calls for firefighters to make a house call after the patient leaves the hospital, and follow up on a few basics like medication questions, symptoms and red flags.

If you’re like me, you enjoy daily routines. My morning routine centers me and gets me ready for the day ahead. For years, I’ve woken up and sat with a cup of coffee and the latest news from NAFCU. I feel it’s the best way I can prepare for the day: by learning about what in Washington is affecting my industry, then coming to work armed with that knowledge.It’s easy to ignore what might be happening elsewhere when you’re preoccupied with your corner of the world. In my years as CEO of Big Valley Federal Credit Union, I’ve noticed that many other CEOs I’ve met – particularly from small or mid-sized credit unions – aren’t actively engaged with the political process. It can feel like a waste of time to get hung up on the goings-on in Congress and at the regulatory agencies, especially when you feel like you can’t make a difference. If you’re sitting in your office far away from Washington – like I am, in Sacramento, Calif. – you might think, “What can I do from way over here?”Well, you can do a lot. If you follow NAFCU Today, you know that there are always opportunities to send in your thoughts about proposed rules from NCUA and CFPB, or legislation that’s been introduced in Congress. Your opinion really does matter, and if you think something will have a negative effect on your credit union, you can be sure you’re not the only one. Lawmakers acknowledge they’re not experts on every single issue, so when they start legislating issues – like overly burdensome NCUA regulations – that affect credit unions, you should have a say in the matter. After all, it’s your and my credit unions’ personal stories that educate lawmakers about how legislation can help or harm us. We have strength in numbers, and even just a quick e-mail, or a few minutes to respond to the Economic & CU Monitor survey, can make a big difference.But you don’t have to stay in your office – at least not all the time! Sometimes it’s good to have a change of scenery, and seeing things from a different perspective can have a lasting effect. My daily life is a far cry from the atmosphere in Washington. Attending NAFCU’s yearly Congressional Caucus allows credit unions to effectively discuss issues with legislators through taking part in the visits to Capitol Hill, and has shown me how complex the process of lawmaking can be. Which is exactly why it’s essential, as credit union leaders, to provide our expertise to members of Congress. Our power to really make a difference lies in showing up and speaking out to make credit unions’ concerns known.No credit union wants to be caught off-guard by a law or rule that hurts our ability to serve our members. By staying informed and staying active, we can help prevent a lot of hurt for the industry. NAFCU helps keep us in the loop all year long, and Congressional Caucus gives us the opportunity to show up in person and speak our piece. I’ve seen the positive impression that showing up in numbers can make on lawmakers – and that makes me want to do it again and again. 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Linda Sweet Linda Sweet is President and CEO of Big Valley Federal Credit Union in Sacramento, Calif.

AFT News:ALBUQUERQUE — American Federation of Teachers New Mexico President Stephanie Ly released the following statement: “This afternoon’s announcement by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham delaying the start of in-person instruction for students and prioritizing professional development for educators is a prudent decision based on the still-rising transmission rates of COVID-19, and the advice of educational leaders and stakeholders, including this union.“Our union has led calls for this delay to in-person instruction and professional development through local bargaining, public media campaigns, and statewide surveys, and we are thankful to the countless families and community members who have echoed these calls. We are thankful our Governor has thoughtfully heard our advice to approach any beginning of the academic year with extreme caution, prioritizing health and safety above all else, avoiding the tragic mistakes seen in other states and countries. The Governor’s phased-in approach to school re-entry outlined in today’s press conference seeks to balance safety with educational needs of our students, educators, and larger community.“With rising rates of COVID-19 infections, we appreciate Governor Lujan Grisham’s science-based approach to the coming school year, and we stand ready to continue with our partnership with the Office of the Governor and the New Mexico Public Education Department to leverage the American Federation of Teachers’ vast national catalogue of educator-created professional development resources, curricula, and best practices to assist educators both during the current health crisis and afterwards.“We echo the call of the Governor asking New Mexicans to wear a face mask and to be cognizant of their actions. Simply put, our students’ education depends on all New Mexico citizens doing their part and putting our students first. New Mexico’s public educators want to return to our classrooms and places of learning; however, we won’t be able to do so until it is fully safe for our students, families, and all educators.”
Liam McIntyre tackles a New York City opponent. Independent/Courtesy Liam McIntyreA record-breaking selection number came with some added hype for three Westhampton Beach football players.Liam McIntyre, Jonathan Mendoza, and Edon Popi were chosen to compete in the Empire Challenge at Hofstra University’s Shuart Stadium June 14, where Long Island blew away New York City’s All-Star team 44-20.“I had always hoped since I was a freshman that I would play in this game senior year,” McIntyre said. “It was a lot of fun having three of us from Westhampton Beach all on the team. It just shows the hard work our coaches and teammates are putting in at Westhampton. We are finally on the map.”McIntyre, a 6’, 200-pound linebacker/fullback, was a “no-brainer” to be selected, according to Hurricanes head coachBryan Schaumloffel, especially because the senior was the winner of the Hansen Award, given to Suffolk County’s best player. Finishing the season covering 876 yards on 149 attempts with 15 touchdowns, McIntyre’s also a two-time first team All-State and two-time first team All-Long Island selection.“Running out on to the field in front of all those fans was awesome,” said McIntyre, a Long Island University-commit. “It made me feel like I was back in football season, and made me realize I’m ready to do this for four more years.”The boys received first-class treatment, which included new gear inside a decked-out locker room, and recognition during pre- and post-game ceremonies. Fans ran up asking for autographs, and came out in the hundreds to cheer on their favorite players. The game, in its 24th season, benefits the Boomer Esiason Foundation and cystic fibrosis research.“It was one of the best two weeks I’ve ever been involved with in football,” said St. Anthony’s coach Rich Reichert, who took part in the final game of his career after 41 seasons in football. “These kids, they did everything right. They showed up for practice, they were respectful, and then they finished the deal.” Jonathan Mendoza with teammates Liam McIntyre and Edon Popi. Independent/Courtesy Bryan SchaumloffelBy the end of the first half, it was hardly a question whether Long Island would win. It was a matter of by how much. Long Island’s offense rolled along, accruing 450 yards on 63 plays and scoring 30 points against New York City’s defense in the first half. Long Island set the tone by scoring on each of its five first-half drives.Mendoza, a 6’8”, 330-pound offensive tackle, was involved in multiple plays across the game to protect his teammates as they made moves toward touchdowns, including a few pancakes in the first half.“That’s about the best play you can make as an offensive tackle,” the second-team All-Long Island and third team All-State selection said before pointing to his favorite play of the game. “On a counter to the left I had to bounce outside the gap and met the outside backer. I ended up taking him to the ground with so much momentum that we rolled once or twice before we stopped.”“He had a great senior year and opened people’s eyes this year to who he can be as a player,” Schaumloffel said of Mendoza. “During the game he shined.”Popi, a 5’10”, 225-pound guard, has been an integral piece of the offensive and defensive lines for the Hurricanes for the past three years, according to Schaumloffel. He’s a two-time All-County player who made second-team All-Long Island, and helped Long Island’s defense hold New York City to 122 yards on 24 plays. Playing defensive tackle, Popi grabbed a loose ball on a fumble for an extra Long Island possession.“We’re definitely going to miss him for years to come,” the coach said. “To say that Edon has been an unsung hero for us these past two years would be an understatement.”The three players from one team is a first for Westhampton. Most teams are lucky if one athlete is chosen to compete.“It’s a great honor for our kids and great recognition for our program,” Schaumloffel said. “This year we had a great season and great athletes. All three of those guys have worked hard on the field and in the classroom. It was a special night for me, and I know it was a special night for them.”Liam McIntyre in the locker room with Long Island teammates Aidan Kaler and Marco Musso. Independent/Courtesy Liam McIntyreWesthampton finished 8-0 in Division III and 10-1 overall, falling in the Suffolk County final to Half Hollow Hills West, 21-10. The loss snapped a 22-game win streak started in the 2017 season, where the Hurricanes won the county crown and their first Long Island championship title. According to Schaumloffel, his seniors are 33-3 in their careers.Mendoza said the bond he’s created with his teammates have kept him coming back season after season, and what led him to decide to commit to Yale University.“There is nothing like ending a season knowing that you will always remember the people you played with,” he said. “What I love most about the sport is the dedication it requires. Not many people can simply step onto the field and perform well — it takes hours upon hours in the weight room as well as on the turf for you to execute on game day.”Schaumloffel said the program-first also does wonders for the in and outside of the high school. There were a number of younger kids at the game — from seventh grade on up.“I think that provides a lot of motivation to continue the tradition and work hard and possibly compete in the game themselves,” he said.“I was happy being supported from teammates from this season and seasons past, and I hope that we did motivate players on future teams because we showed that hard work always leads to success,” Popi added. “Playing for Westhampton has meant the world to me.”Mendoza said he’s hoping for the same, highlighting the opportunities the program has brought his way.“Being able to play for Westhampton has been a blessing. Wearing the Hurricane green and black is a huge beacon of pride for me,” Mendoza said. “The program has done so much for me, and I will be forever thankful for it. There is no better feeling than watching those who played with you for so many years competing alongside you one last time. And hearing the crowd cheer and seeing everyone in the stands was a breathtaking way to end my high school football career.”[email protected] Liam McIntyre in the locker room with Long Island teammates Aidan Kaler and Marco Musso.
