Along the same lines, we all see it as significant that coach John Harbaugh hitched his wagon, fully, to Jackson this week, entrenching him as starter with incumbent (and former Super Bowl MVP) Joe Flacco cleared to return from a hip injury. Theyve also had to do some of that on the fly, with offseason injuries to Hunter Henry and Jason Verrett, at the beginning of the season when Joey Bosa went down, and more recently with running backs Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler missing time. Johnson, who played for Jim Harbaugh at the University of San Diego and had 43-1 TD-INT differential in his senior year of 2007, has been on the rosters of the Bucs, Niners, Browns, Bengals, Jets, Colts, Bills, Ravens, Giants, Texans, Raiders and, now, Redskins. Anyone whos been around the Patriots owner knows the place religion holds in his life, and so its great to see a story like this one (h/t to my old NFL Network colleague Aditi Kinkhabwala for unearthing it on Sunday morning), where hes offering his help in others time of need.
The Baltimore Sun reports the mayor said Friday that she believes the Pimlico Race Course could be demolished and rebuilt without having to move the Preakness. The Maryland Stadium Authority study released last week estimated a complete rebuild of the nearly 150-year-old track would take three years. Pugh thinks the demolition and construction can be done in phases to keep the race in the Park Heights area. Larry Hogan has said hes always been supportive of keeping the Preakness at Pimlico and would review the study.
He was a big get out of Lake Travis, the same school where OSU got Matthew Baldwin last year, as the Buckeyes beat out Texas among others to get him. It probably helped Ohio State that Wilson was originally born in the Columbus area and that the Buckeyes have Baldwin on the roster. So he deserves credit for helping Ohio State land the top player in its class. Wilson finished his high school career with 216 receptions for 3,592 yards and 56 TDs.
We're lucky our owner was very invested in scaling up, so the new Parma facility is going to have 700 solar panels and eight wind turbines. The innovative system enables the trucking company to participate in net metering programs, while also providing backup energy during grid disturbances. "Previously we put a small microgrid in at our Harmar, Pennsylvania facility that handles about a third of the energy requirements," Russo said. "We're looking forward to see how we can scale up not just in the freight market and bring on new business, but also how we can do it in a way that's good for the community."
"Tyson was a great dog and made several large drug arrests," Parma Police Chief Joseph Bobak said. Police officer Bryan Bernow, who is Beny's handler, recently completed six weeks of training at Hiram's Excel K9 Services Inc. That includes the innovative Hot-n-Pop system, which in the case of rising temperatures inside of the vehicle will roll down the windows, sound the car alarm goes off and send the officer a notification on his pager. Also, if the officer is in a use-of-force situation and the canine's assistance is needed, the pager has the capability of remotely opening the vehicle door to allow Beny to apprehend a subject.
NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio -- Months after North Olmsted City Schools opened its $90 million facilities project - a new grade 6 through 12 educational, performing arts center and athletic complex - at the Butternut Ridge Road campus, the district now is turning its attention to the aging elementary school facilities. "We're in the process of conducting a community survey to gather input from our stakeholders," North Olmsted City Schools Superintendent Michael E. Zalar said. The district is paying roughly $5,000 to Fallon Research and Communication to conduct a phone survey this month with the results due back in early January. Every two or three years Zalar said North Olmsted City Schools conducts a survey as a way for district leaders to take the pulse of the community.

My thoughts on that are (the Titans) were having success running the ball, keeping drives alive, coach Pat Shurmur said. The Giants jumped out to a 40-point lead on the Redskins last week by taking away running back Adrian Peterson and forcing Mark Sanchez to win the game. But quarterback Eli Manning is the highest-paid player on the team with the two Super Bowl MVP trophies to his name, and he couldnt lift the passing attack to open breathing room for Barkley. Even Manning admitted last week the Giants are starting to figure out that the offense runs through Barkley.
Then came another performance where the Giants needed their quarterback to overcome an injury to receiver Odell Beckham Jr., less than optimal pass protection and a Tennessee Titans defense hellbent on taking away rookie running back Saquon Barkley. The logical game plan -- i.e., get the ball to Barkley 40 times -- was tossed in the trash bin the moment that the Tennessee defense wrapped him up behind the line of scrimmage for a couple of losses in the first half. Pat Shurmur treats even the most innocuous questions about his teams performance as attacks on his core being, so it was fascinating to see this exchange unfold at MetLife Stadium during the head coachs latest unnecessary sparring match with the press: That means 2018 will be the seventh straight season without a playoff victory, the longest stretch for this team since the dark ages between its five NFL championship game losses and Bill Parcellss arrival in East Rutherford (1959-1981, to be exact).
The Hun tight end told NJ Advance Medias Todderick Hunt he and the Scarlet Knights mutually parted ways on Sunday. But he recently took an official visit at Georgia Tech, which has hit the region hard after hiring Temple coach Geoff Collins. Deveney is expected to make a decision during this weeks early signing period, which begins Wednesday. Washington, who is 6-foot-3, 190-pounds, chose the Scarlet Knights over 20 other offers, including Power 5 schools Boston College, Duke, Nebraska, N.C. State, Purdue and Wake Forest.
