The Consumer Protection Division (CPD) of the Office of the Indiana Attorney General is warning people to be suspicious of companies claiming to be affiliated with local high schools and attempting to sell sponsorships.On Jan. 31, the CPD received a consumer complaint against a business claiming to operate as Touchdown Sports. The complainant said the caller claimed to be with Touchdown Sports and to be calling on behalf of Noblesville High School in Indiana. The complainant said the caller was seeking sponsors for the backs of t-shirts that could be passed out during high school sporting events. The complainant also told the CPD that she called Noblesville High School and was informed that the school had no knowledge of the company. This exact scam has been reported in other states.Businesses – especially locally owned companies inside or near the boundaries of an Indiana school district – should be suspicious of anyone calling their phone seeking sponsor partnerships for stadium banners, posters and t-shirts, among other items. The CPD is advising businesses not to contract with companies claiming to represent local schools without first checking with the schools to confirm the relationship with the organization seeking money.In addition to businesses, if parents, staff or residents living inside an Indiana school district are contacted by someone claiming to operate a sponsorship fundraiser for a school, the CPD urges them to contact the school in question to confirm the relationship.If you believe you have been contacted by a fraudulent company or an individual attempting a scam, the CPD encourages you to file a complaint at www.indianaconsumer.com or call our Consumer Assistance Line at (800) 382-5516.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
In their endorsement of Mayor Winnecke for 4 more years as Mayor, the Courier & Press described me as a “picture of negativity”. For once, the Courier & Press is right.This is not the campaign I wanted to run, however, I feel it is my duty to inform the public of the dangers we face if we do not have a change in leadership.The Mayor is not willing to admit to the sad state of financial affairs of our city, nor is he willing to fix it, so it is my duty to do so.Mayor Winnecke won’t talk about the General Fund reserves depleting from $4 million to $300,000, so I will.Mayor Winnecke won’t talk about our city’s half a billion dollars of debt that continues to rise, so I must.Mayor Winnecke won’t talk about the rising crime rate in our city, so that obligation falls to me.Mayor Winnecke won’t talk about the bad deals he’s made for the city, whether it be Earth Care, or massively subsidizing the downtown hotel with taxpayer dollars, or trying to deny taxpayers their homestead tax credit, so it is my responsibility to do so.I have made all of these points in the numerous debates, forums, and joint appearances throughout this campaign, and Mayor Winnecke has not once refuted these points; because he can’t.Negativity is not the way I wanted to run this campaign, however, I feel it is my duty to make sure you know the truth; that you know the facts of where the city is, and where we are headed.The choices in this election couldn’t be clearer; Change vs More of the same.I want to be Mayor of Evansville so I can meet the challenges before us.I want to bring more transparency and accountability to the Mayor’s office by ensuring that you, the public, know what is going on in my administration and where your tax dollars are going.I will foster an environment that brings in new businesses and jobs, and helps those existing companies expand.I will work to ensure our citizens feel safe in their own neighborhoods.I want to focus on improvements in the entire city, our parks, our streets, our sidewalks, and yes, our sewers.To me, I see problems as opportunities. Let’s solve them together, and let’s make Evansville better together.I look forward to serving as your next Mayor, and would appreciate your vote on November 3rd.Sincerely,Gail RieckenCandidate For the Mayor of EvansvilleFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
The Mendoza College of Business’ Ethics Week concluded Friday with J. Jonathan Hayes, director of pro sports at Pegasus Partners Ltd., speaking about the business of helping professional athletes give back.Hayes said he got his start helping athletes manage charitable foundations by taking them on as clients when he was a private banker in Cincinnati early in his career.“I always thought that their agents did more of the financial advising and helping the guys get direction with what to do with the contract dollars that the agents would negotiate for them,” he said. “I came to find out that most guys were not getting any advice at all, and if they were, a lot of times it was bad advice, or maybe the agent had a little bit of a shady angle that he was pursuing.”Hayes said discovering the lack of guidance for professional athletes with millions of dollars in their bank accounts inspired him to specialize in helping these clients manage their assets.“In 1995, I got the bank to start a separate practice focused on wealth management for pro athletes,” he said. “[I made] a shift from private banking … to actively helping advise the guys on what to do with the money that they were amassing as professional athletes.”The trend of professional athletes starting charitable foundations, Hayes said, was largely prompted by the salary growth that came about in response to factors such as league expansions, players becoming more vocal during contract negotiations and the advent of sports on cable television.“What really started to drive this was, back in the ’70s and ’80s, you really started to see a more uniform growth in player contracts,” he said. “Prior to that, the superstar players — you would see those guys get rewarded by their teams. But if you were the third pitcher on a staff, if you were the sixth man coming off the bench of an NBA team [or] if you were the backup quarterback, you weren’t making anything. [In] the ’70s and ’80s, that started to change pretty dramatically.”Once professional athletes began making more money, their agents started encouraging them to give back in some way, Hayes said.“With that, the player agents started to become a little more socially aware,” he said. “One of the ones that you would hear about most often — at least publicly — was Leigh Steinberg. Steinberg was the preeminent football agent in the ’80s and ’90s. … The evidence of some of the charitable work that Leigh’s clients did start to get involved in is fairly strong.”Hayes said this trend grew once players who lead the way with their charitable acts started generating more positive press.“A couple other things started to factor in to create some acceleration behind this,” he said. “I think the teams liked that their players were charitable, that [they] were involved with the community. … It helps owners to sell more tickets to fans if the fans perceive that they’re rooting for a bunch of good guys.”Hayes said it didn’t take long for players to begin adding to this movement on their own, as well.“The players themselves — it became kind of a cottage industry there for a while,” he said. “ … You’re the star wide receiver on the team, the quarterback is going to have a golf outing for his foundation, so he invites all his teammates there, you go to it, you see fans there, you see sponsors, everybody is wearing the shirt with the quarterback’s foundation’s logo and the players liked that. Whether it touched them on an ego level or it touched their hearts, a lot of players said, ‘That was really cool. I want to do that.’”With the good done by these charities, though, there have always been people willing to take advantage of professional athletes or fans that are willing to donate to a particular athlete’s cause, Hayes said.“Once markets start to occur, there are those that see that opportunity and want to be a part of it,” he said. “Sometimes it’s for legitimate reasons [and] sometimes not, but there were — and still are — people that want to get athletes to say, ‘Hey, let me help you have an event. Let me help you run a foundation.’ … Especially early on, you would see a lot of, ‘I’m going to charge a big fee for doing this.’”In spite of occasional negative stories, Hayes said the good player charities have done vastly outweighs any bad instances, pointing to stars including LeBron James, Tiger Woods and David Robinson, father of student body president Corey Robinson, as athletes who have paved the way for greater charitable efforts.“The fact is some really good work has come out of what we’ve seen athletes and their charities do,” he said. “ … We see charitable activity now in leagues. … We don’t have to look too far from our own Notre Dame family to find some great examples of charitable work done by athletes.”Tags: asset management, Ethics week, sports

Retail banking across the world, including at credit unions, will see effects and changes brought about due to the coronavirus pandemic. With the loss in foot traffic to physical locations and increased remote work, institutions with well built-out digital channels can continue to provide value and financial resources to their membership.At year-end 2019, before the pandemic hit, brick-and-mortar branches were continuing to grow at credit unions nationwide. Total branch counts increased by 113 over the past year to 21,225 as of December. Coinciding with branch growth, total employee counts also expanded. Total full-time equivalent employees (full-time + ½ part-time) increased 3.6% year-over-year to 316,335. As of December, credit unions nationwide employed 304,247 full-time and 24,176 part-time employees.Growing branch and employee counts have resulted in increased operating expenses. Salary and benefits, which account for 51.4% of total operating expenses at credit unions nationwide, increased 9.8% year-over-year.In line with increasing branch counts and growing technology offerings around the country, office operation expenses increased 7.7% annually to $9.0 billion at year-end 2019.

Re March 23 New York Times column, “President phones his pal Putin: The transcript”: As a reader of the Gazette for 47 years, I can’t believe you printed that column. Mr. Bret Stevens’ column contained more lies, and only two things that can be considered true — President Trump did call Putin, did congratulate him on this election, and did mentioned a possible meeting between the two in the future. The rest was the Times’ complete hatred of President Trump. Print facts, not personal opinion like Mr. Stevens. As a former paper boy in my youth in New Jersey, newspapers are to research and print facts — not opinion and lies.I hope you print this, but it criticizes newspapers.Herbert ThorneSchenectadyEditor’s Note: The column was a satire and therefore was published in the Opinion section, not the News section.More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusSchenectady department heads: Budget cutbacks would further stress already-stretched departments Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion
