Based on their efforts, NCMS provided a reprieve from probation in 2007, and returned the North Suburban Y to Good Standing in 2008, a turning point that became the start of a major resurgence. The committees decision proved to be prescient: since 2007, the NSYMCA has been transformed into a thriving member of the Y national community. A multi-million dollar facility renovation coupled with an expansion of programs and services has resulted in a record-breaking 38% growth in membership from 2012 to 2013. The dramatic turnaround was exemplified by the Ys selection as Small Business of the Year by the Northbrook Chamber of Commerce. These accomplishments were motivation for Y-USAs selection of Schultz for the National Committee, believing that a CEO with his significant experience of having gone through such an institutional challenge successfully will bring a unique perspective to their deliberations and know more readily what can be done when the various efforts are applied. “Howard was selected to the committee because of his outstanding achievements over the last few years, running an exemplary organization, meeting and exceeding membership standards and diligently carrying out the Y mission in the community,” stated Tony Fragale, Vice-President for Certification and Membership Standards Y-USA. “The North Suburban YMCA is a laudable example of what a great Y looks like.” I was delighted to learn that Howard will be serving the national community through NCMS, commented Philip Ruben. It is a rewarding recognition of how far our Y has come from practically having our doors closed. Im glad that Y-USA recognizes that our experience can be a model to save other Ys, and Howard is the perfect person to offer that perspective from the trenches. Our Y survived in large part because one CEO on the CMS regional committee listened to us, understood what we were doing, and stood by us, noted Schultz. I feel that this is my opportunity to pay it forward, by helping other struggling Ys learn from our experience. It is an honor I share with all of the leaders and staff who helped us make this miraculous journey earlier, along with the outstanding leaders of today like Matt Brennan and Jeff Knipp who continue the long line of strong, community- based, visionary leadership. The public is invited to learn more about the Ys future at the NSYMCA Annual Meeting on Wednesday, October 2. Board members will mingle with guests at an informal reception beginning at 6:00pm, followed by a business meeting at 6:45 that will include the induction of new Board officers, tributes to outstanding staff members and donors, and information about new programs and improvements to the Y.
Authorities say he victimized young women surreptitiously, by taking control of their computers then photographing them as they changed out of their clothes. Abrahams appeared in court later in the day, then was released “on intensive pretrial supervision and home detention with electronic monitoring” after his parents signed bond agreements totaling $50,000, FBI spokeswoman Lourdes Arocho said. U.S. District Judge Jean Rosenbluth ruled that he could use a single desktop computer at his parents’ home for school only, albeit only after monitoring software is applied. When he admitted what he’d done in June, Abrahams said he had 30 to 40 “slave computers” — or other people’s electronic devices he controlled — and has had as many as 150 total, according to a criminal complaint . His arrest came six months after a teenager identified in court documents as C.W. alerted authorities. She has since publicly identified herself as Cassidy Wolf, the recently crowned Miss Teen USA. She touted news reports of her alleged tormenter’s arrest on her Twitter feed . How easy are you making it for hackers? At the time she contacted police, in March, Wolf was not a national figure — even though she was Miss Teen California — and lived in an apartment and attended Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa.

Two of them, the Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints, meet Monday Night in The Big Easy. Oh, what might have been. Back in 2006, the Dolphins and Saints were the only teams seriously vying for the services of then-injured free agent Drew Brees. Miami opted for another quarterback coming back from surgery, Daunte Culpepper, and the rest is history. Week 4 also marks the first of this season’s two games in London and the beginning of bye weeks (the Green Bay Packers and Carolina Panthers are off).
