Check it out below:   Frank Rolfe  00:00 I fully understand why as a homeowner, you know, it's a basic fact of life. The average American has a horrible stigma against mobile home parks around the residence. And nobody wants a park to go up near where they live, or even a business they are. If you simply go to Zillow and look at the single-family home price next to a park, it's about half of what it is a block away. Same home, right?   Intro  00:21 Welcome to the How to Scale Commercial Real Estate Show. Whether you are an active or passive investor, we'll teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big.     Sam Wilson  00:33 Frank Rolfe has been an investor in mobile home parks for almost 30 years and has owned and operated hundreds of mobile home parks during that time. He is currently ranked with his partner Dave Reynolds as the fifth largest mobile home park owner in the United States. Frank, welcome to the show.   Frank Rolfe  00:48 Hey, thanks for having me.   Sam Wilson  00:49 Pleasure is mine. Three questions I ask every guest who comes on the show: in 90 seconds or less, where did you start? Where are you now? How did you get there?   Frank Rolfe  00:55 Where did I start? I started off straight out of Stanford trying to do a business school application and back then you would start a business to have a good application. That's how I started my billboard company. So that was my early origins of being an entrepreneur. Where am I now? Well, I'm now I'm fifth-largest owner, with my partner, Dave Reynolds of mobile home parks in the United States. So you know, we've done a lot of scaling over the last 40 years of being in business for myself.   Sam Wilson  01:24 Yeah, that's absolutely fantastic. And the last question is, maybe we'll spend the rest of this episode talking about it. How did you get there?   Frank Rolfe  01:31 Basically, how I got there was working like an absolute maniac for most of the time. Obviously, having a good strategy, some businesses, you can expand and others you cannot. And then finally, just being outright lucky, because there's plenty of guys with more ability than I've got, who just were not in the right place at the right time.   Sam Wilson  01:50 Yeah, it's funny, I was talking, I was having dinner with some guys the other day, big finance guys. And somebody brought up that idea that some of it's just luck. It's just you beat in the right place at the right time. They're like, man, there's more truth to that than you realize that it's just you're desperate the right place the right time, and it worked out. So that's really interesting. The mobile home park and the RV park space has really changed here, I'd say in the last 10 to 15 years, it's gained a lot of attraction, a lot of attention from not just individual investors, but also, as you will know, from institutional investors, what have been the changes most dramatic and noticeable to you, and how has it impacted your business?   Frank Rolfe  02:31 Well, the biggest change, of course, has been financing, because when I got in at 25 years ago, in the mid-90s, you could not get back that. So every deal you tried to do the number one hurdle you had was getting financing. Banks hated that. Nobody liked it. And when normally you would end up with seller finance, you try to cobble together something with seller financing. And the sellers were amenable because they knew there was no bank debt. That's the one big shift today deals rarely go on bankable right back in the 90s. Everything was on bankable. So that's when Biggie the other one has been just the appetite for affordable housing. You know, we've said over the last nine quarters, each quarter, we broke the record of the prior quarter as far as sales. And what's going on is just the nation's housing industry has actually gotten nuts on pricing. And so we're producing houses at a price range of you know, in the 300,000s. And so there's so many people who cannot get into the housing market. It's insane. And while with our industry, you don't own both home and land, you do at least own home, and you have some land, unlike apartments. So we're kind of this crossover product between apartments, which don't give you that single-family home lifestyle at all. We're kind of like a step between that and actual normal, single-family.   Sam Wilson  03:44 What, so yeah, the bankability of things has changed. You know, the interest in the space too. I mean, cap rates in mobile home park, as far as I understand, I don't own any mobile home parks. From an outsider's view. It just looks like they just keep compressing. How are people finding value right now?   Frank Rolfe  04:00 Well, they're not really compressing, what they're doing is they're going down, but people are still having to buy a spread between the interest rate and the cap rate. Thanks for not nuts in our industry and office buildings, retail centers back in the day. People were doing crazy financing, right? Just 110%, LTV 1% interest. People have never on the lending side been that nutty. So you know, we have to get loans and to have loans, we have to have a 1.2x coverage ratio to the mortgage, a lot of bank stress test our mortgages, they'll say what happens if you lost 10% of your revenue? So what you're saying is interest rates are historically very low. Even today. They're at roughly 4% t many mobile home park deals. When I got into business they were at seven right so you know, it's not like in our industry that the cap rates are unsustainably whacked out, but the big difference has been that interest rates are low. Another factor is you know, in our industry, the big narrative is that our lot rents are crazy, stupid low. which when you even say that I get nothing but hate mail, but it's just a fact. And you know, our national mobile home park lot rent is 280 a month average apartments, I think it's 1600 a month, right? So our pricing is stupid. And institutional buyers are buying the stuff up, they're raising the rents up significantly because they're stupid. And because the rates cannot remain, I mean, most of these parks today at the current rates, you're better off just bulldozing them, there's a million uses for the land better than a mobile home park. So as institutional guys go in and drive the rents up, the banks and the appraisers have taken note how easy it would appear to be 100% occupied at 280 rent and still be 100% occupied at a 580 rent. So they're starting to factor in perhaps the first or second read increase into their appraised value. So that's the other phenomenon you're seeing. Because last time, when we buy a park, we're not even looking at mom and pops cap rate, because mom and pop is running that business so poorly. It's a joke, what the banks and the appraisers and sophisticated buyers are doing is looking at the raw material and what they can make out of it.   Sam Wilson  05:59 That's a really clear explanation. I think that makes a lot of sense, you know, that I hadn't really considered as How are you guys are seeing it through the bank, through the appraisers' eyes, versus, you know, maybe what mom and pop are putting together on it. Are you guys buying actively right now?   Frank Rolfe  06:14 Yes. We're always buying. We have periods in which we buy more than others. But we've never had a period in which we were not buying.   Sam Wilson  06:21 What does opportunity look like for you right now?   Frank Rolfe  06:24 Well, our tastes have changed significantly over the years, right? Both Dave and I, when we started out, we didn't start out together. We were actually competitors. In the old days, our deals were very, very rough and tumble what we'd call heavy-lift turnarounds. So I was buying parks that were often half-empty, totally screwed up, water leaks running down the streets, stuff like that. So as Dave. Today, because of our size, we're trying to do add on to our portfolio, what we call portfolio builders, which are nicer properties that help the overall value. But at the same time, we still do heavy lift turnarounds. Now the one style we're not as in tune with today, as you were before, are ones in which you have to do massive lot filling by bringing in homes. And that's because home prices have gone up nearly doubled during COVID. So while it was fun to fill lots and 30,000 homes, not as much fun at 60,000 a home.   Sam Wilson  07:13 Well, not only that, but I've also heard that finding homes is difficult.   Frank Rolfe  07:17 It's very, very hard right now, I don't think you'll ever go back to the old ways, to be honest with you. What happened was that, you know, manufacturing, it was 400,000 units back in the late 90s. Today, it's been about 100,000 units for, I don't know, the last 15 years. Nobody wants to step out and increase production. They easily could because the plants are only running one shift, and they could run three. So they typically produce seven floors a day, the average plant could produce 21 floors a day. But no one wants to take the gamble. Because half of all the mobile homes sold roughly it's estimated are park owners who are buying the homes to bring into their own parks. Right? And then the question is, how much longer will that go on before people get full? It's not like eating out where you might you have to eat out, you know, you eat daily, so maybe you'll eat out, you know, in perpetually a certain number of times a week. In our industry, once you fill a lot. That's it, it's over. So people just don't want to stick their neck out.   Sam Wilson  08:11 No, and I completely get that. That's very interesting. You would think, though, that there's still some old supply going offline at some point. I mean, obviously, there's gonna be some demand. But you're saying that there's going to be kind of a point where they've hit the wall and they can no longer keep up with runnings, three shifts a day.   Frank Rolfe  08:25 Yeah, well, right. Here's the problem, see, that the average American cannot buy a mobile home. If he walks right now into a mobile home dealership, you will find you have to have better credit and had worse or terms to buy a mobile home than the stick-built. Because the government stands behind and promotes the stick build industry. So they allow people to do these very, very low downpayment, all these different programs for first-time buyers and veterans and all this stuff. None of that exists in our space. So in our industry, you're looking at a high-interest rate a much larger percent down than single-family. And so you can't do it. And the only reason that homes get bought today, half of all home production is because the park owners backstop those loans, right. So if I bring in, you know, a $50,000 home, I don't cosign the note, but I guarantee the lender, if the person is foreclosed on, I won't charge lot rent, and I will go ahead and rehab the home at my own cost, and I will sell it at my own cost. And that's the only reason they will do it. And until the government wants to stand behind the industry and support it, which they've elected never to do, that will never change. If the government wanted to do that, which they easily could then you could see greater sales.   Sam Wilson  09:35 Right, that opens another can of worms, you probably won't go down that road. I'm thinking more along the lines of building new parks. Why aren't we seeing, I mean, maybe we'll ask that question differently. What is the challenge, outside of maybe the political challenge of building new parks, why don't we see other new parks coming online?   Frank Rolfe  09:52 Well, you never will. Okay. I mean, I've been in the business 25 years and I don't think in any given year you've seen more than 10 new parks ever build and about 100 torn down. So we've been depleting continuously. Here's the problem, and you can't blame the cities for it. I fully understand why as a homeowner, you know, it's a basic fact of life, the average American has a horrible stigma against mobile home parks around the residence. And nobody wants a park to go up near where they live, or even a business they own. If you simply go to Zillow and look at the single-family home price next to a park, it's about half of what it is a block away, same home, right? So the citizens go in an uproar if you try and build a new mobile home park, and of course, all their elected representatives on the city council, they're not wanting to get all the citizens to vote them all out over some stupid mobile home park. So they just will not grant the zoning, they haven't granted zoning in the United States from mobile home park in any significant amount since 1970. So it's been half a century now. And it's never going to change because it's a basic fundamental truth that you'd have to change the entire attitude of Americans towards trailer parks before you could achieve that. And that is never going to happen. No one is ever going to spend $100 billion in public relations money to achieve that. And that's why you won't see it. But even then, if you wanted to build one today, what you would have to do is you'd have to go way out in the countryside where there are no people to complain, where there are no zoning laws, and then you have no municipal water, no municipal, sewer, and no customers. So what's the purpose of building that? So that's the problem.   Sam Wilson  11:25 Yeah, absolutely. Are there any other headwinds that come to mind? I mean, in its own right depleting supply is good for you, as a park owner, that the value of the park goes up. It's bad for the end-user in the sense that we are once again losing more affordable housing, and not replacing it or building new. So that's bad for the end-user. Other headwinds in the mobile home park space that you can think of?   Frank Rolfe  11:50 Well, you know, what killed the mobile home parks before back in their heyday, which was in the 50s and 60s. What killed it was mass prosperity when people off suddenly got rich, and they all moved out, right? So you had that period in America, which is hard to even remember back that far, but I was alive during that period. When America was doing really well. And every year, people were making more money. And as people became more affluent, they were buying homes and subdivisions. And everything was great. When you were born, if you were ever back in the 60s, the atmosphere in America was very, very much different. We were really rolling at that time. And so the question is to defeat affordable housing, if you wanted to destroy all mobile, home parks, it's simple. Just bring back mass prosperity. And then no one needs mobile, home parks, they just all go buy custom homes wherever they can, build, you know, half a million, million whatever on the golf course, you know. But I don't see that happening. That would be the single biggest event that would kill the industry off. The only other items you have circulating around in some of the blue states, you have rent control. People talk about it frequently. Remember that in the entire United States, only one state has statewide rent control, and that's Oregon. So you know, the credit score is 49 no one yes, you've got four or five other states that allow it on a city by city basis. But you know, it's not a red state phenomenon. But if you have a mobile home park in a blue state, they seem to threaten that every year. They never pass it because they have no desire to ever pass it. Because the folks that run the government are all being subsidized by a whole lot of folks who do a lot of real estate ownership and development. So they're not really going to say, hey, I'll give you my big political contribution, despite the fact you screwed me over with rent control. I don't see that really happening. So no, you know, I don't really see any big headwinds to the industry. But then again, you know, America is so screwed up at this point. Every day is a new headwind. So who knows? Who knows where we'll be by the end of the day.   Sam Wilson  13:44 Right. Well said, Tell me about the RV parks because you guys are also well-known RV park owners. I know you kind of lump the two together for our listeners, maybe can you tell us why you lump them together? And then is there a difference?   Frank Rolfe  13:59 Yeah, sure. Well, you have to lump them together, because remember that they were all the same family up through the 1960s. So it was all called the trailer industry. You had trailer park, and you had a travel trailer? Yeah. And it was all trailer right. And what happened was a trailer manufacturer called Selby had a customer who wanted an even fancier, more expensive travel trailer. And they called up the state of Ohio and they said, Is there any way I could build this guy, an even bigger travel trailer? And the state said, Yeah, you know what, we'll let you go up to additional feet and width, but he can't pull it with his car, they'll have to pull it with a commercial vehicle. And that was the start of the industry splitting. Because what happened was people who wanted to not move their travel trailer frequently but wanted to have something bigger that became the mobile home whereas the traditional RV, person came to travel with shelter. The biggest difference in the industry be honest with you is the amazing job the RV industry has done with public relations, contrasted to the terrible job of mobile home park the industry has. So the Go RVing campaign is considered one of the most successful marketing campaigns in American history. The average American scores RV is very, very high in status and in satisfaction. So it's such a night and day difference. It's like you have two brothers one goes off to win the Heisman Trophy, be elected president and the other brother ends up you know, dropping out of junior college and becomes a sanitary engineer, even though they were the same industry at one time. So when you deal with RV, it's a luxury product, it's more of a classy customer. And it is something that everyone loves, right? Just as everyone hates trailer park, mobile home parks, they love RV parks. So it's a different kind of business. Now, the main problem you have is that RV is in fact a business. Whereas mobile home parks is very, very static. People never move around, they sit there, an average tendency is 14 years. They pay rent, you fix it when the utility pipes break. But an RV is like going into a restaurant, right? It's much more active. So you have to have customer service. And if you don't, they'll just go down the street to somebody who does. So that's the key difference. There's a risk profile difference between the two. A lot of lenders do offset that. They'll set the cap rate two points higher on RV than mobile home park because they want that extra comfort. And if you're lousy operator, even though you screw up, you can still cover the mortgage. Whereas mobile home park, you know, our managers or their worst manager ever, we probably won't lose any customers will probably have property condition issues, maybe a couple of collections problems. But an RV park with a bad manager can just wipe your RV park out.   Sam Wilson  16:38 Right? Absolutely. We've seen some incredible tailwinds in the RV space here just with deliveries in 2020, 2021. And then, you know, 2022, projected deliveries are just through the roof. Where do you see, and I think there's a unique thing that I've seen in the RV park industry is that people or cities are amenable to RV park development. So where do you see that going? Does this just peter out when people get tired of the pandemic and finally try to put that behind us? Or do we actually had, does that have runway?   Frank Rolfe  17:08 Well, you know, for a long time people thought RVs were not going to be a long-term thing because the majority of RV owners were baby boomers, my generation. And what they thought was going to spur it on the greatness would be a burst as you have the, you know, there's 10,000 boomers retiring today. I mean, I'm 61. So next year would technically be my where I would retire if I was at a normal job.So but what came out of nowhere that they did not anticipate was the millennials. Millennials are now as bigger bigger buyer of RVs than the Boomers were right. And that was a, I think you have to tie that to the phenomenal success of the Go RVing campaign. They were doing like, you know, all those Monster Energy extreme events, they were marketing it those way back then they had real foresight, whoever was running that marketing, they knew what they were doing. They didn't just focus on boomers, they could have just only promoted programs that appeal to boomers, right, like the Golden Girls or you know, golf tournaments. But no, they went after deliberately went after millennials and all of their most edgy millennial stuff. And as a result, they score very highly with them. And they are now half or more of all RV sales, right? So you have all these young people with RVs now and so that's what's given the industry a whole new life, because I didn't see that one coming, nor did anyone that was gift from the Gods. And then of course, the other part was COVID. I mean, let's be honest, COVID is one of the best things that ever happened to the RV industry, right? What happened was people now want to be outdoors. Some people have never been outdoors before. They never, they want to go somewhere without a mask. People said, Oh, well, you can walk around without a mask. They're like, Oh, holy smokes, man. I've never been outdoors before, what the heck, I like that. And also people now just don't like being around other people's nastiness. They don't want to go to hotels and stuff because they don't know who slept in the bed or who coughed on the remote. And so when they are in an RV, they feel like they have that safety from germs and strangers and all that. So I don't really see that going away. You know, the one part of the industry that someone will have to come to a conclusion with at some point is that, you know, a lot of people prefer retiring and living in RVs over mobile homes because of that stigma issue, which you'll never solve. So and I myself know, I know a college professor who recently sold his house, like a half a million-dollar house, and bought an RV. Okay, it's a single guy. And he just decided to sell everything and retire and bank the whole thing and just live in his RV. He would have never lived in a mobile home in a million years. He could never, culturally stigma, survive that but he can. The problem is a lot of cities, the RVs are not allowed to remain more than a certain number of days. Right? So those people end up in this nomadic existence. So what you need is kind of a hybrid, you need an RV park that you can retire in and live permanently. And that's going to be the real challenge. When cities grant these RV permits. Traditionally, they won't allow anyone to be there more than a certain number of days. And they do that live really because they are afraid if they do you know, there's an underworld RV of these kinds of nomadic freaky people who grew up around the river and they don't want them, right? Well, you don't want the guy that was living under the bridge down by the river, right? That's not your goal. So that's the real missing piece right now. And then the same goes with tiny homes, right? tiny homes can't go on traditional mobile home blocks, they don't have the HUD seal. So what happens is, you know, you see them on TV, but there's nowhere to put them right. And again, so that's the missing piece. And so I think at some point in the movie, maybe in the next five years, 10 years, 20 years, people will figure all this out, and maybe cities will allow what would be more of an upscale retirement kind of community that allows for tiny homes and things do not have HUD seal and yet don't have to move frequently. I think that's the only missing piece the industry has.    Sam Wilson  20:51 Yeah, that's really interesting. I had not even considered that side of the equation before. But yeah, that is really interesting. I mean, a lot of what we're seeing in the RV park space is in the long term tenant, though, when you get outside of those city regulations, of course, I mean, you have people that park their RV and leave them there for 12 months and come in every other weekend, have a good time. Really, really intriguing. Frank, thank you for taking the time to come on today and talk about mobile home parks and RV parks, certainly a blast. I've enjoyed it, learned a ton about both sides of the business. If our listeners want to get in touch with you or learn more about you and what you guys are doing, what is the best way to do that?   Frank Rolfe  21:27 Well, the best way to find my writings and all by different things just go to mhu.com just the letters M-H-U.com. You'll find so much more you can handle.   Sam Wilson  21:39 Frank, thank you again. I do appreciate it.    Frank Rolfe  21:41 You bet.

In today's episode, Host Tom Loarie interviews two stand-out mentors—Justice Alan Page in the first half of the show and Mike McCoy in the second half of the show—both are University of Notre Dame (UND) football and Professional National Football League greats dedicated to building our future by helping to influence and shape today's youth in positive ways. (scroll to bottom of post to listen to this episode, or subscribe to podcast here--on any podcast platform) First, Tom talks with Retired Justice Alan Page, who is the first African American to serve on Minnesota's State Supreme Court, a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and who played with the Minnesota Vikings, was named 1971 MVP in the National Football League, is a member of both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame, and a member of UND's 1966 national championship team. In the second half of the show Tom talks with Mike McCoy, former defensive tackle with the Green Bay Packers. You'll learn why both of these influential men are focused now on building a future with America's youth, inspiring them to be all that they can be and to lead their best lives. SHOW NOTES: JUSTICE ALAN PAGE: FOUNDATION: PAGE EDUCATION FOUNDATION (page-ed.org)BIO & BOOKS: (below) Alan C. Page was born August 7, 1945, in Canton, Ohio.  He graduated from Canton Central Catholic High School in 1963, and received his B.A. in political science from the University of Notre Dame in 1967 and his J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1978. After graduating from law school, Alan Page worked as an attorney for a law firm in Minneapolis, then served seven years as an attorney in the office of the Minnesota Attorney General. He sought election to the Minnesota Supreme Court in 1992 and won, becoming the first African American on the court and one of the few associate justices ever to join the court initially through election, rather than appointment by the governor.   When Justice Page was reelected in 1998, he became the biggest vote-getter in Minnesota history. He was reelected in 2004 and 2010 and served until he reached the mandatory retirement age of 70 in 2015. Law was Alan Page's second career; he was first known for his skills in football both in college and in the NFL.  At Notre Dame, Alan Page led the school's storied football program to the 1966 national championship, and in 1993 he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Alan Page was a first-round draft choice of the Minnesota Vikings in 1967 and he played for the Vikings until 1978. The last three years of his football career were with the Chicago Bears, 1978–1981. During his career, Alan Page played in 218 consecutive games, earning All-Pro honors six times, and was voted to nine consecutive Pro Bowls. In 1971 he was named the NFL's Most Valuable Player, becoming only the second defensive player in history to be named MVP. In 1988 Alan Page was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In November 2018, Justice Page received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In 2019 he was chosen as a member of the NFL's 100th Anniversary All-Time Team. BOOKS: Justice Page and his daughter, Kamie Page, have written four children's picture books: Alan and His Perfectly Pointy Impossibly Perpendicular Pinky (2013) The Invisible You (2014) Grandpa Alan's Sugar Shack (2017) Bee Love (Can Be Hard) (2020) __________________________ SECOND HALF OF SHOW: __________________ MIKE McCOY: MIKE'S WORK WITH YOUTH: MIKE McCOY MINISTRIES (https://mccoy77.com/)BIO: (below) Mike McCoy is a native of Erie, Pennsylvania and a graduate of Cathedral Prep High School.  He graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a BA in Economics where he played football and was a Consensus All-American. He was chosen UPI Lineman of the year and was sixth in the Heisman Trophy balloting his senior year.

Depending on your sportsbook of choice, the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy in 2022 is one of two quarterbacks – Alabama's Bryce Young or Ohio State's C.J. Stroud. Young is the reigning Heisman winner, running away with the voting last year, while Stroud finished fourth. Alabama is expected to be the preseason No. 1, and although playing on the nation's best team isn't a prerequisite to winning the Heisman, it doesn't hurt, either. So, Young is the logical favorite, right? Hang on just a second. On this edition of "SEC Football Unfiltered," a podcast from the USA TODAY Network, Blake Toppmeyer and John Adams make the case that Stroud should be considered the frontrunner for the award.

Hi, this is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Monday, April 11th, 2022. Today, we’ll hear about Elon Musk, in a surprising reversal, no longer joining Twitter’s advisory board. Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins was killed on Saturday after being struck by a truck, the Idaho supreme court blocks ‘Texas Style’ abortion bill from our friends at the Idaho Policy Center, and a congressman introduces a bill, to restart Trump’s border wall! But first, let’s take a look at this day in history. Today is Monday, April 11, the 101st day of 2022. There are 264 days left in the year. Today’s Highlights in History: In 1814, Napoleon Bonaparte abdicated as Emperor of the French and was banished to the island of Elba. (Napoleon later escaped from Elba and returned to power in March 1815, until his downfall in the Battle of Waterloo in June 1815.) In 1865, President Abraham Lincoln spoke to a crowd outside the White House, saying, “We meet this evening, not in sorrow, but in gladness of heart.” (It was the last public address Lincoln would deliver.) In 1899, the treaty ending the Spanish-American War was declared in effect. On April 11, 1968, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the Civil Rights Act of 1968, which included the Fair Housing Act, a week after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Man April 11th sure sounds like an important day in history! You know what else is important? Protecting your family from the dangers of the internet. Using a smartphone or computer opens the door to a host of digital temptations.

Twitter had announced on Tuesday that Mr. Musk, 50, would be appointed to its 11-person board in a term that expires in 2024. That followed the revelation on Monday that Mr. Musk had accumulated a 9.2 percent stake in Twitter, making him its largest shareholder. Mr. Musk had agreed not to own more than 14.9 percent of Twitter’s stock or take over the company, which is based in San Francisco. But Parag Agrawal, Twitter’s chief executive, tweeted late Sunday that the situation had changed. On Saturday morning, Mr. Musk told the company he would no longer be joining as a director, Mr. Agrawal said. No reason was given for the change. Twitter’s CEO tweeted out the following: Elon Musk has decided not to join our board. Here's what I can share about what happened. The Board and I had many discussions about Elon joining the board, and with Elon directly. We were excited to collaborate and clear about the risks. We also believed that having Elon as a fiduciary of the company where he, like all board members, has to act in the best interests of the company and all our shareholders, was the best path forward. The board offered him a seat. We announced on Tuesday that Elon would be appointed to the Board contingent on a background check and formal acceptance. Elon's appointment to the board was to become officially effective 4/9, but Elon shared that same morning that he will no longer be joining the board. I believe this is for the best. We have and will alwavs value input from our shareholders whether they are on our Board or not. Elon is our biggest shareholder and we will remain open to his input. There will be distractions ahead, but our goals and priorities remain unchanged. The decisions we make and how we execute is in our hands, no one else's. Let's tune out the noise, and stay focused on the work and what we're building. A spokesman for Twitter declined to comment beyond Mr. Agrawal’s post. Mr. Musk did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins dead after being struck by dump truck on Florida interstate https://www.foxnews.com/sports/steelers-quarterback-dwayne-haskins-killed-struck-car This is from Fox News: Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins was killed early Saturday morning in Florida after being struck by a dump truck in Broward County, authorities said. He was 24 years old. Haskins, who was set to turn 25 next month, was in South Florida training with the team when he tragically died, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported first, citing Haskins' agent. Haskins was attempting to cross the westbound lanes of Interstate 595 on foot when he was hit by a dump truck, according to the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP). Haskins was pronounced dead at the scene, and authorities said it was "unknown" why he was walking on the interstate. A traffic homicide investigation is ongoing, FHP said. The former Ohio State standout was reportedly in Miami training with Mitch Trubisky, who was signed by the Steelers last month to a two-year deal, Sports Illustrated reported. Haskins was expected to compete for the starting job in Pittsburgh following veteran Ben Roethlisberger’s retirement. After redshirting his freshman year at Ohio State, Haskins served as backup quarterback, throwing for 565 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. The following season he was named the starter and went on to have a tremendous season, throwing for 4,831 yards, 50 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. He was the second runner-up in the Heisman Trophy voting that year and in 2019 he was drafted 15th overall by the newly named Washington Commanders. Idaho Supreme Court Blocks 'Texas Style' Abortion Law https://townhall.com/tipsheet/madelineleesman/2022/04/09/idaho-supreme-court-blocks-texas-style-abortion-law-n2605688 On Friday, the Idaho Supreme Court blocked a law from going into effect that would outlaw abortions after fetal heartbeat detection, which occurs at roughly six weeks gestation. The law is mirrored after legislation in Texas that was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States. According to The New York Times, the court issued an order temporarily blocking enforcement of the law until it can further review it. The law was scheduled to take effect on April 22. According to our friends at the Idaho Family Policy Center, the Idaho Attorney General cut a deal with Planned Parenthood, in which both parties agreed to let the court temporarily block the law in exchange for slowing down court proceedings. The Office of the Attorney General – which is statutorily responsible for defending the law in court – says the compromise was necessary because the process was moving too quickly for their team to mount an adequate legal defense. The law allows the father of the unborn child, the grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles to pursue legal action against a medical provider who performs an abortion. The family members of the unborn child can sue for a minimum of $20,000 in damages within four years after the abortion. Texas’ law, S.B. 8, on the other hand, allows anyone to sue an individual who provides an illegal abortion or aids a woman seeking an illegal abortion. Those who successfully bring lawsuits under S.B. 8 can receive $10,000. When GOP Idaho Gov. Brad Little signed the bill into law, he mentioned that he had concerns regarding this portion of the legislation, noting that other states could utilize the same approach to encroach on gun ownership rights. Rebecca reported how California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) touted that he would use this approach against firearms. Late last year, President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) and abortion clinics in Texas challenged the state’s “heartbeat” abortion ban at the Supreme Court. The Court fast-tracked its decision and did not allow the DOJ’s lawsuit to continue and returned the abortion clinics’ lawsuit back to a federal appeals court. This year our national conference is in Knoxville, TN October 6th-8th. The theme of this year’s conference is Lies, Propaganda, Storytelling and the Serrated Edge. Satan is the father of lies, and the mother of those lies is a government who has rejected God. We have especially been lied to these last two years, and the COVIDpanic has been one of the central mechanisms that our government has used to lie to us and to grab more power. Because Christians have not been reading their bibles, we are susceptible to lies and weak in our ability to fight these lies. God has given us His word to fight Satan and his lies, and we need to recover all of God’s word, its serrated edge and all. Mark your calendars for October 6th-8th, as we fight, laugh and feast with fellowship, beer and Psalms, our amazing lineup of speakers, hanging with our awesome vendors, meeting new friends, and more. Early bird tickets will be available starting in the middle of March. Congressman introduces bill to restart building border wall https://justthenews.com/nation/states/center-square/nc-congressman-introduces-bill-restart-building-border-wall A North Carolina congressman has introduced a bill to require the federal government to restart rebuilding the border wall, which was halted by President Joe Biden. U.S. Rep. Ted Budd, R-NC, introduced the Build the Wall Now Act, which removes all legal impediments to building the border wall. Among other things, it unlocks an additional $2.1 billion that was appropriated in fiscal years 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021 that weren’t spent. Congress allocated $6 billion for the wall’s construction between fiscal years 2018 and 2021, according to the General Accounting Office. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt sued the administration last fall, asking the court to require the administration to resume building the wall using funds already appropriated by Congress. Within a month of the AGs' lawsuit, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said it was using the money on environmental and cleanup projects in certain areas of Arizona, California and Texas. Funds would be used to “address life, safety, environmental, and remediation requirements for border barrier projects” in the San Diego, El Centro, Yuma, Tucson, El Paso, and Del Rio Border Patrol sectors. As the AGs’ lawsuit makes its way through court and as border communities brace for an estimated roughly 18,000 people expected to come through the southern border after Title 42 is repealed next month, Budd said, “The best way to end the Biden Border Crisis is to finish the border wall now.” Title 42 is a public health authority that allows Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents to quickly process and deport illegal immigrants under a public health emergency. It was used by the Trump administration to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The Biden administration announced it was ending it May 23. As long as Democrats hold a majority in Congress and Biden remains president, the bill isn’t expected to become law. But it’s an example of Republicans increasingly frustrated with the administration’s open border policies filing legislation in Congress as immigration lawsuits remain tied up in courts. Even while Title 42 was being used, in Biden’s first year in office, roughly two million people from over 150 countries were apprehended or encountered by CBP agents entering the U.S. illegally. This number excludes an estimated several hundred thousand who evaded law enforcement. All funding for the border wall was suspended on Biden’s first day in office. It costs taxpayers $3 million a day to not build the wall due to contractual obligations with the construction firm tasked with building it. As the federal wall remains unfinished, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott began building a border wall on Texas soil. “Texas is taking what truly is unprecedented action by any state ever,” Abbott said in December when a section of the wall was erected in Rio Grande City. Texas was building a wall “on our border to secure the sovereignty of the United States as well as our own state,” he said. “And this unprecedented action is needed for one single reason, and that’s because the Biden administration has failed to do its job as required by law as passed by Congress to enforce the immigration laws of the United States of America.” Thanks for tuning in to this CrossPolitic Daily News Brief!

Hi, this is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Monday, April 11th, 2022. Today, we’ll hear about Elon Musk, in a surprising reversal, no longer joining Twitter’s advisory board. Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins was killed on Saturday after being struck by a truck, the Idaho supreme court blocks ‘Texas Style’ abortion bill from our friends at the Idaho Policy Center, and a congressman introduces a bill, to restart Trump’s border wall! But first, let’s take a look at this day in history. Today is Monday, April 11, the 101st day of 2022. There are 264 days left in the year. Today’s Highlights in History: In 1814, Napoleon Bonaparte abdicated as Emperor of the French and was banished to the island of Elba. (Napoleon later escaped from Elba and returned to power in March 1815, until his downfall in the Battle of Waterloo in June 1815.) In 1865, President Abraham Lincoln spoke to a crowd outside the White House, saying, “We meet this evening, not in sorrow, but in gladness of heart.” (It was the last public address Lincoln would deliver.) In 1899, the treaty ending the Spanish-American War was declared in effect. On April 11, 1968, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the Civil Rights Act of 1968, which included the Fair Housing Act, a week after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Man April 11th sure sounds like an important day in history! You know what else is important? Protecting your family from the dangers of the internet. Using a smartphone or computer opens the door to a host of digital temptations.

Twitter had announced on Tuesday that Mr. Musk, 50, would be appointed to its 11-person board in a term that expires in 2024. That followed the revelation on Monday that Mr. Musk had accumulated a 9.2 percent stake in Twitter, making him its largest shareholder. Mr. Musk had agreed not to own more than 14.9 percent of Twitter’s stock or take over the company, which is based in San Francisco. But Parag Agrawal, Twitter’s chief executive, tweeted late Sunday that the situation had changed. On Saturday morning, Mr. Musk told the company he would no longer be joining as a director, Mr. Agrawal said. No reason was given for the change. Twitter’s CEO tweeted out the following: Elon Musk has decided not to join our board. Here's what I can share about what happened. The Board and I had many discussions about Elon joining the board, and with Elon directly. We were excited to collaborate and clear about the risks. We also believed that having Elon as a fiduciary of the company where he, like all board members, has to act in the best interests of the company and all our shareholders, was the best path forward. The board offered him a seat. We announced on Tuesday that Elon would be appointed to the Board contingent on a background check and formal acceptance. Elon's appointment to the board was to become officially effective 4/9, but Elon shared that same morning that he will no longer be joining the board. I believe this is for the best. We have and will alwavs value input from our shareholders whether they are on our Board or not. Elon is our biggest shareholder and we will remain open to his input. There will be distractions ahead, but our goals and priorities remain unchanged. The decisions we make and how we execute is in our hands, no one else's. Let's tune out the noise, and stay focused on the work and what we're building. A spokesman for Twitter declined to comment beyond Mr. Agrawal’s post. Mr. Musk did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins dead after being struck by dump truck on Florida interstate https://www.foxnews.com/sports/steelers-quarterback-dwayne-haskins-killed-struck-car This is from Fox News: Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins was killed early Saturday morning in Florida after being struck by a dump truck in Broward County, authorities said. He was 24 years old. Haskins, who was set to turn 25 next month, was in South Florida training with the team when he tragically died, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported first, citing Haskins' agent. Haskins was attempting to cross the westbound lanes of Interstate 595 on foot when he was hit by a dump truck, according to the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP). Haskins was pronounced dead at the scene, and authorities said it was "unknown" why he was walking on the interstate. A traffic homicide investigation is ongoing, FHP said. The former Ohio State standout was reportedly in Miami training with Mitch Trubisky, who was signed by the Steelers last month to a two-year deal, Sports Illustrated reported. Haskins was expected to compete for the starting job in Pittsburgh following veteran Ben Roethlisberger’s retirement. After redshirting his freshman year at Ohio State, Haskins served as backup quarterback, throwing for 565 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. The following season he was named the starter and went on to have a tremendous season, throwing for 4,831 yards, 50 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. He was the second runner-up in the Heisman Trophy voting that year and in 2019 he was drafted 15th overall by the newly named Washington Commanders. Idaho Supreme Court Blocks 'Texas Style' Abortion Law https://townhall.com/tipsheet/madelineleesman/2022/04/09/idaho-supreme-court-blocks-texas-style-abortion-law-n2605688 On Friday, the Idaho Supreme Court blocked a law from going into effect that would outlaw abortions after fetal heartbeat detection, which occurs at roughly six weeks gestation. The law is mirrored after legislation in Texas that was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States. According to The New York Times, the court issued an order temporarily blocking enforcement of the law until it can further review it. The law was scheduled to take effect on April 22. According to our friends at the Idaho Family Policy Center, the Idaho Attorney General cut a deal with Planned Parenthood, in which both parties agreed to let the court temporarily block the law in exchange for slowing down court proceedings. The Office of the Attorney General – which is statutorily responsible for defending the law in court – says the compromise was necessary because the process was moving too quickly for their team to mount an adequate legal defense. The law allows the father of the unborn child, the grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles to pursue legal action against a medical provider who performs an abortion. The family members of the unborn child can sue for a minimum of $20,000 in damages within four years after the abortion. Texas’ law, S.B. 8, on the other hand, allows anyone to sue an individual who provides an illegal abortion or aids a woman seeking an illegal abortion. Those who successfully bring lawsuits under S.B. 8 can receive $10,000. When GOP Idaho Gov. Brad Little signed the bill into law, he mentioned that he had concerns regarding this portion of the legislation, noting that other states could utilize the same approach to encroach on gun ownership rights. Rebecca reported how California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) touted that he would use this approach against firearms. Late last year, President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) and abortion clinics in Texas challenged the state’s “heartbeat” abortion ban at the Supreme Court. The Court fast-tracked its decision and did not allow the DOJ’s lawsuit to continue and returned the abortion clinics’ lawsuit back to a federal appeals court. This year our national conference is in Knoxville, TN October 6th-8th. The theme of this year’s conference is Lies, Propaganda, Storytelling and the Serrated Edge. Satan is the father of lies, and the mother of those lies is a government who has rejected God. We have especially been lied to these last two years, and the COVIDpanic has been one of the central mechanisms that our government has used to lie to us and to grab more power. Because Christians have not been reading their bibles, we are susceptible to lies and weak in our ability to fight these lies. God has given us His word to fight Satan and his lies, and we need to recover all of God’s word, its serrated edge and all. Mark your calendars for October 6th-8th, as we fight, laugh and feast with fellowship, beer and Psalms, our amazing lineup of speakers, hanging with our awesome vendors, meeting new friends, and more. Early bird tickets will be available starting in the middle of March.

JAY MILLS, a former long time college football coach, including 13 years as the head coach at Charleston Southern University, and now an ordained pastor at Pleasant Valley Community Church, will join us to discuss his career; his beliefs; his website, newsletter, and videos; and his latest release, "Game On! - A Coach's Game Plan for Discipleship". FROM HIS WEBSITE: ​During his collegiate coaching career, Mills was recognized as an innovator, motivator, and team builder, helping both individuals and programs alike to reach their full potential. It was during the decade he served as the Head Football Coach at one faith-based institution that he first fully integrated biblical principles to create a whole person development model. This unique leadership strategy promoted the spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional development in those he led. As Mills would state, “Success in the core components of a person's life transfers into success, not just on the playing field, but personally and professionally as well. If the process is right, the results will take care of themselves.” His hypothesis would be correct. As a Head Football Coach, Mills led Charleston Southern University to its first ever winning season, conference championship, national ranking, and the second-longest winning streak in the nation. Before retiring in 2013, Mills would receive coach-of-the-year accolades and, for his accomplishments on and off the field, he was presented the prestigious Mike Campbell Lifetime Achievement Award. To Mills, it was not about simply developing young men, but training aspiring coaches as well. It was his desire that they all might use their platforms to advance the kingdom by using their influence to multiply disciples. His former student athletes and assistant coaches now serve in every strata in the coaching profession (including the NFL). They are also leaders in other professions, and pillars in their families, communities, and churches. ​Following a successful 30-year-career coaching college football, which included coaching one Heisman Trophy winner and stints at such well-known institutions as the University of Notre Dame and Harvard University, Mills embraced a calling to full-time ministry. Now as an ordained pastor at Pleasant Valley Community Church, he continues to employ the same coaching principles in this new venue. And he assists others in doing the same. In his writing and through his speaking engagements, Mills shares a skill set that will transfer into practical application for his audience's personal development and professional growth. coachjaymills.com/index.html

1. When you look at the RB's in this year's draft, there may not be 2-3 stars in the first round discussion like last year, but like several other of the position groups we've covered on this program in recent weeks, it is exceptionally deep, perhaps much deeper than the 2021 crop of backs. How would you compare the 2022 RB class to last year's? 2. In 2019, the first RB off the board was David Montgomery. Fast forward almost three years later, and another Iowa State Cyclone just might achieve the same feat. I'm obviously talking about Breece Hall. Why is he the best RB in this class? 3. Another RB in the conversation for being the best at the position in this draft is Michigan State's Kenneth Walker III, who was being touted as a serious Heisman Trophy candidate last fall. The big question with him, however, seems to be just how much can he bring you in the passing game. Daniel Jeremiah thinks he has a lot of upside in that area, while Joe Marino of The Draft Network believes that upside is very limited. How much do you think Walker is capable of in the passing game (both catching the ball out of the backfield and blitz pickup)? 4. Isaiah Spiller of Texas A&M is another RB that should go relatively early. He arguably has the best combination of vision and contact balance out of all the RB's in the class. However, he has very small hands (8 5/8”), which could make him more “fumble prone” at the NFL level. Does Spiller's hand size worry you at all? 5. Georgia has two intriguing RB's in this class with James Cook (Dalvin's younger brother) and Zamir White. Compare/contrast the two and tell us what you think the best role for them is at the NFL level 6. Buy Or Sell: Kyren Williams, Tyler Allgeier, Dameon Pierce, Brian Robinson Jr., Hassan Haskins, Pierre Strong Jr., Abram Smith, Kevin Harris, Ty Davis-Price, Rachaad White, Zonovan Knight, Jerome Ford, Tyler Badie, Isaiah Pacheco, Shermari Jones 7.

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep The decorated football career of Ricky Williams is the stuff of legend, featuring an NCAA career rushing record, the 1998 Heisman Trophy, becoming the first player ever to represent a National Football League team's entire draft class in 1999, and an NFL rushing title in 2002. It is Williams's enigmatic personality, however, that has often stood out even more than his gridiron greatness. The combination of the two endeared Williams to Miami Dolphins fans around the world when the team brought him to South Florida through a 2002 trade with the New Orleans Saints, and resulted in confusion, hurt, and outrage upon his unexpected but temporary retirement from football just days before the 2004 season. In May of 2020, Ricky took his first opportunity to Dive in The Tank and fondly recalled his years as a Dolphin, particularly his prolific first two seasons (9:13). He candidly detailed the decisions behind his retirement, including a surprising assist from an unlikely source (25:36), his conversations with then Dolphins Head Coach Dave Wannstedt (28:50), and how meaningful and self-healing his time away from football was (32:58). Ricky also covered his respect for Nick Saban (38:50), his special friendship with fellow Fins rusher Ronnie Brown, and of course talks the Wild Cat from his perspective (42:57).   Contributors to this episode include Sean “DJ Prec” Todd, Alex Bitchatchi, and Dolphins Productions.
