Former Citadel co-founder Larry Wilson sold on San Antonio radio deal
The Business Journals - over 3 years
On Oct. 14, I reported that Portland-based L&L Broadcasting had struck an agreement to acquire eight radio stations from the Border Media Business Trust — all of them located in the San Antonio market. If that deal closes as expected, L&L Chairman Larry Wilson will have acquired more significant turf in his second run in radio. Wilson, who co-founded Citadel Communications, a company that built a major presence with more than 200 stations in 40-plus markets, got out of the business several years…

Comparison of Awards for Safeties since 1950
Bleeding Green Nation - almost 5 years
I compiled a list of several notable safeties in order to help assess Dawkins's chance at the Hall of Fame. Since most defensive numbers are unofficial, I decided to focus on individual and team awards compiled by the various players. I tried to include most of the notable Safeties since 1950, with an emphasis on Dawkins's contemporaries. Stats, Pro Bowl, All-Pro, and Hall of Fame info are from Pro Football Reference, awards are from the NFL Award pages on Wikipedia. Non-Hall of Famers Name Years Games All-Dec 1st AP Pro Bowls Champs.

Astorino: No Increase in Tax Levy
Pleasantville-Briarcliff Manor P - almost 5 years
Westchester County Executive Spokeswoman Donna Greene has release the following regarding County Executive Rob Astorino's State of the County Address: County Executive Robert P. Astorino, in his third State of the County Address, said that his administration has made substantial progress in controlling taxes and spending and promoting economic development, while at the same time providing essential services to the almost 1 million people of the county. “This is what governing should look like,” he said Wednesday in his annual address to the Board of Legislators and the public, which was aired on News 12 and given for the first time from the County Courthouse in White Plains. “And when it does, you have government that is financially strong, operationally effective and passionately on the side of the people. That’s the kind of government I am committed to and that the residents of Westchester deserve.” Astorino used the occasion of the speech to announce that Teamsters Local 45 ...

Comment on Mayo Clinic helicopter crash: How often do these accidents happen? by Larry Wilson
MedCity News - about 5 years
It needs to be pointed out that this helicopter which crashed in Florida was NOT a medical air ambulance. It was a routine charter-type helicopter which just happened to be transporting transplant surgery providers. The helicopter was not licensed for air medical transport, there was no stretcher system for carrying a patient, and there were no flight paramedics or flight nurses on board. I suspect that it’s use in medical applications (i.e. organ transport) constituted less than 5% of it’s activity. This accident, tragic as it may be, was not the same as the accidents which occur with traditional air ambulances. Comparing this accident to medical helicopter crashes makes about as much sense as comparing taxi-cabs to ground ambulances. Any activity on the part of the FAA to influence air ambulance operations will have nothing to do with what happened in Florida.

  • TWENTIES
  • 1967
    Age 28
    Kramer described Wilson's play during an October 30, 1967 game, " he fired up their whole team... (h)is enthusiasm was infectious."
    More Details Hide Details Wilson is renowned for not only playing, but intercepting a pass, with casts on both hands due to broken wrists. On the September 18, 2006 edition of SportsCenter, Mike Ditka challenged Terrell Owens' toughness by not playing for 2–4 weeks due to a broken finger. He cited Wilson's interception with casts on both hands as proof of a tougher football player. He ended his career with 52 career picks for 800 yards and five touchdowns. Wilson served as the Cardinals' interim head coach in 1979 after the dismissal of Bud Wilkinson, and was the franchise's general manager from 1980 through 1993.
  • 1966
    Age 27
    Wilson eventually made All-Pro honors eight times in his career. Wilson represented the Cardinals on eight Pro Bowl teams. During the 1966 NFL season, Wilson had at least one interception in seven consecutive games, en route to a 10-pick season that led his league.
    More Details Hide Details Jerry Kramer, a guard for the Green Bay Packers and author of Instant Replay, called Wilson "the finest football player in the NFL."
  • 1960
    Age 21
    Despite his skill and adaptability, Wilson was not drafted until the 7th round of the 1960 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Cardinals.
    More Details Hide Details After originally playing as a cornerback, Wilson switched to free safety, and it was here that he found his place on the team. Not long after Wilson made the team, Defensive coordinator Chuck Drulis crafted a play that called for the free safety to take part in a blitz. The play was code-named "Wildcat", after Wilson's nickname. When the Cardinals first ran the safety blitz, the pressure was severe since most teams didn't (and still don't) expect a defensive back to take part in a pass rush. This single play also helped to set up today's defenses where a blitz can come from anywhere.
