  1. I've wondered this since it was announced. Logistically, how good of a fit is Long Island, tax breaks/reduced property costs or not? I'm sure with Amazon pulling the plug there are already some big winners and big losers with regards to property sales.
  2. In her eyes, she struck a blow to corporate America, so it's a win. In reality NY is off the hook for the incentives, so it's a win for NY. In the long run, the area is out of 25K jobs. I'm still not convinced this was a good deal for who got it.

    Tax Cut Implications

    I use a spreadsheet as well. You need to read closer, volunteer coaching isn't a W2 position. You might still be able to deduct. I can still deduct 1099 mileage. If you're a sole proprietor, you can still deduct as well.

    2019 High School Rules Changes

    Typically Football allows several years to allow for the changes to be made on existing replacement timelines. Buying ten BB jerseys is one thing, buying 60+ Football jerseys is something entirely different.
  5. It would be a constitutional crisis.

    2019 High School Rules Changes

    It's always been common place to allow this sort of thing. MS's with hand me down jerseys or just lacking jerseys, have many times had issues getting everyone in the right numbers.

    During a trip to Sioux City, Iowa a few years back, a friend of mine from the area told me I had to get a Twin Bing. Cherry/chocolate/peanuts...................had to be the most disgusting thing I have ever put in my mouth.

    Are you W2 or 1099?

    40 Sec Clock: HERE TO STAY: Thank You Indiana

    At least it didn't turn into a contraction thread.

    40 Sec Clock: HERE TO STAY: Thank You Indiana

    I think your point is moot Muda, at least in Indiana. It has been years since I've been to a HS that didn't have play clocks. I'm down though, in those blowout games you whine about, I'm all for removing all play clocks as well as game clocks, we'll keep it on the field, NO PROBLEM!
  13. Prior to my back surgery, I went to our ER on a Sunday morning and saw a PA. I knew what the problem was, I didn't want X-rays, diagnostics, etc. I was just asking for some pain killers to get me thru a couple of days. She was going to give me a script for 7.5/250 hyrdrocodone/tylenol. I told her look I get what you have going on and I totally get what this looks like. The Hydros won't do anything, I won't even get it filled. I told her I would like 7.5mg Oxycodone, like 8 pills to get to to Tuesday, assuming I would be able to get into my neuro by Tuesday to schedule the surgery and at that point he could take over. I told he I completely understand what this looks like and if you can't do it I understand. This was obviously an ongoing situation and I knew the back surgery was coming. She was really nice about it, hooked me up, and the rest is history. After my back surgery two years ago, I came home on a Oxycontin/Oxycodone/Valium cocktail. Dropped the Oxycontin in about two days, dropped the Oxycodone in like 6 days. Oddly enough the Valium was the only script I had refilled. I had a lot of tightness and spasms, the Valium seemed to take care of them. I took them off and on for about two months. For the hernia surgery, mine was late in the day, I didn't get out of the hospital until like 6 in the evening. I was still pretty medicated, so no pills the rest of the night. I took about three the next day, and the next day, two days post op, SUCKED! I took five that day. Day three woke up and it didn't seem to bad, so I haven't had one since. Mainly just soreness, suck it up and get thru it. My surgery was with the DaVinci Robot, four 1" incisions in my abdomen, I never had any pain with them.
  14. We’re good, pray for someone who needs it. FYI, doctors have told me you have about 0% chance of becoming addicted by taking opioids for pain management post-op. After my recent hernia surgery I came home with 60 pills, I think I took like eight.
  15. Between my parents and I, virtually every surgery we’ve been sent home with an opioid script. Doctors from Carmel to Louisville. Perhaps my experience has been an anomaly or we’ve only had painful surgeries.

    I believe the committee is meeting this week. I'll post as releases are made.

    2019 Rule Changes

    I’m speaking my association, multiple sports. We had our first Softball meeting last week, three tournament officials missing, all three with the same story. Two of them have done state finals, they’re good umpires.

    Looks like Ohio is taking a pass on IR this year at least. http://highschoolsports.cleveland.com/news/article/2047579235663878822/nfhs-approves-instant-replay-for-high-school-football-playoffs-ohsaa-not-adopting-but-will-discuss/
  19. Just spit balling here, but would virtually EVERY surgeon be writing opioid scripts for virtually every case each day?

    Gitmo Preps for an Upgrade

    It was a central theme in BHO's 08 campaign. A bid deal was made of the XO the day he was inaugurated. He had the entire executive and legislative branches of government. He ramrodded healthcare down our throats, if it was that important to him, I would have assumed he'd done the same thing with Gitmo. Trump campaigned on healthcare reform and a wall. The R's have had SEVEN years to come up with a plan on healthcare reform and couldn't pull it off. Again R's held the executive and legislative branches for two years and only managed a half-assed tax clusterfu.... Now suddenly after after the mid-terms this wall is uber-important. I'll give the D's credit, when they're in charge they have to stones to ram stuff down the American people's throats. But when the R's are in charge, they don't have the stones to do jack squat.
  21. I get it, but as I stated, first visit to a pain management doctor. Had been prescribed OxyCodone, 5mg, then 7.5mg, then 10mg, in the months leading up to this. Multiple compression fractures in her spine. From two in August to four in October, the seven in November. She was literally two weeks away from Hospice care and a Morphine drip. At some point, common sense has to enter into the equation. She was clearly not doctor shopping, we had a referral from a neurosurgeon, who didn't prescribe anything. In a month's time I have picked up two different scripts for my dad after medical procedure for opioids, a script for myself for opioids, and another script for myself for a controled substance. From four different doctors, three surgeons and my family doctor. I had to present my ID each time, you reckon I'm on a list somewhere?

    Gitmo Preps for an Upgrade

    Much like the wall and healthcare reform, BHO had two years and nothing happened. Two sides of the same coin.
  23. I agree, my mom was in a great deal of pain in her final weeks. We were finally referred to a pain management doctor who was hesitant to prescribe anything besides the OxyCodone she was on. After some heated words from yours truly, we left with a script for Fentynal patches. Under his care, within a week he actually had to bump the dosage up. In less than a week she was in the hospital on morphine. The point being, we're clearly dealing with end of life stuff with a 78 year old woman. She's never been to a pain management doctor in her life, she's in a wheelchair, and it's not hard to tell she's suffering. Why are we forcing people like this to suffer when there are drugs to alleviate the pain. Why the hoop jumping? Why am I forced to get upset and be a jerk to the doctor to get her taken care of? Even if addiction was a potential problem, at her stage of the game, so what?
