  1. No new information, just another take on today's news...
  2. They did finally get Capone for tax evasion, after all... Speaking of which, terribly off topic, there is a real-live business in Western Pennsylvania called 'Capone's Tax Service.' Just a bit of levity in the midst of this horrible situation.
  3. It was corrected to 'for cause' in this article: "This week we did officially notify Mr. Hopkins that that he was terminated for cause," said YEA Chairman Doug Rutherford. "It certainly means there is no severance or any other benefits that come with his departure from YEA."
  4. Sounds about right. He treated the Cadets, its members and staff as his own personal property for years, why stop now?
  5. Sounds good to me. And no, they're not. Whereas the previous board obviously didn't know what they were doing. I can picture someone saying, 'Why didn't they think of that?' Reminds me of the movie 'The Black Hole,' where the evil villain lobotomizes his crew so they'll do whatever he wants, and then they can't save him when he's crushed by falling debris.
  6. Not to nitpick, and I certainly am not defending Hopkins, but... The previous board accepted his resignation. Can the current board undo the action of the previous board and fire him for cause instead? Seems weird to me.
  7. Here is a link to a written story: This article says that he was terminated 'for cause.'

  9. YEA also needs to delete a lot of stuff from its YouTube channel...

    I think it's the least important thing in the world where they place - this season is all about a cleanse.

    They should be fine to compete as long as DCI is satisfied that they're taking the right steps toward a safe environment...
  12. Star '91 Question

    From Bill Cook, 'Recollections of Star of Indiana,' circa 1996:' 'On August 4th, Star arrived in Boston. With the help of his care giver, George arrived at the stadium to meet his corps. Something happened to him that afternoon--he seemed transformed, energized. His strength had returned--it was the "old" George on the field that day--"You've got to be shittin me!" "That's wonderful!" "Cupcake, you were terrible!" Late in the afternoon, he told Jim--"the new closer is not right." A few minutes later, he left the stadium. None of us knew where he had gone or if he would be back. About eight o'clock, George returned and said: "we are going to have two crosses at the finish instead of one." The next five hours were unbelievable. He ran from one section to another telling members where they should be at the end of the final cross. He wanted them to count measures--"count and run around until time to make your final set." Hour after hour, the corps tried and failed but finally, at 2 a.m. the next morning, the cross was seen. The next night in Lynn, Star put in the new move; needless to say, there were more than a few wrecks at the end but we won over SCV by 1.9 points.' Read the whole thing-worth it!msg/rec.arts.marching.drumcorps/CHQnHgE42vQ/QQQrWZiW_XoJ
  13. It's been a while since I read the book. It might be time.
