Hard to believe, after all the news around Ray Rice’s potentially career-ending domestic violence case and Adrian Peterson’s child abuse drama, that another NFL player would be photographed in handcuffs for similar charges any time soon. And then there was Jonathan Dwyer of the Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday.Dwyer, from metro Atlanta and Georgia Tech, was was arrested Wednesday for investigation in two altercations that occurred on July 21 and 22 at his Phoenix residence, just days before the Cardinals reported to training camp. His wife left the state after the incidents but came forward a week ago after Dwyer apparently sent suicidal text messages including a photo of a knife.In the first encounter, police say Dwyer attempted to kiss and undress his wife, but she refused. Someone who heard the argument reported the assault to police, who showed up at the apartment but did not make an arrest. Dwyer hid in a bathroom and the wife denied he was in the home because the running back threatened to kill himself in front of her and their child if she told police about the assault, police said.The next day, Dwyer punched his wife with a closed fist on the left side of her face, according to police. He also punched walls and threw a shoe at his 17-month-old son, who was not injured, police said.As his wife tried to call police, Dwyer grabbed her cellphone and threw it down from the home’s second story. Witnesses told police that Dwyer’s wife said, “I’m calling the police,” as she held her swollen face and clutched her son.During his police interview on Wednesday, Dwyer acknowledged hiding in the bathroom when police responded to the first argument and sending a photo of a knife with suicidal threats. Dwyer denied committing an assault, though he acknowledged that he punched walls in his home, threw a phone and that his wife bit his lip during the disputes, according to the police report. As he was released from jail Thursday, he said he never hurt his son.The Arizona Cardinals say they first learned of the domestic abuse accusations Wednesday afternoon. Hours later, “the serious nature of these allegations” led the team to deactivate the running back from all team activities.Dwyer was released early Thursday after posting bond, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said. Police said they were carrying out a search warrant at Dwyer’s residence in pursuit of more evidence.The 25-year-old player denied committing any assault against the 27-year-old accuser, police said.Authorities depicted a stormy relationship between Dwyer and the woman that escalated into violence on July 21, four days before the Cardinals reported to training camp.Neighbors heard a fight and called police, who showed up at the residence but left without making an arrest because Dwyer hid in the bathroom, and the woman said she was the only one at the home, Sgt. Trent Crump said.“She said she was in an argument on the phone only,” Crump said.The next day, Crump said, Dwyer snatched the woman’s cellphone and threw it from the second floor of their residence to prevent her from calling police about another dispute.Crump confirmed there was an allegation that Dwyer threw a shoe at or toward the couple’s 18-month-old son. Crump said he couldn’t elaborate on it.Crump said the woman moved out of state with the child but came forward last week and provided police with information about her injuries and text messages indicating Dwyer ”was going to harm himself because of what had been going on.”The NFL has been jolted by domestic violence issues since a videotape surfaced that showed Rice knocking out his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City, New Jersey, elevator. Peterson has been deactivated after child abuse charges were filed against him.So, a league that was reeling since the Rice news continues to spiral in a public relations mess.
While most executives refused to speak on the record about the rash of layoffs and overall panic in the magazine industry, one, Meredith’s Art Slusark, actually did (although, keep in mind, he is a spokesperson for the company).Here’s his unedited take:We are in a very tough economic environment overall, and for media companies in particular. Visibility is very low, and it’s difficult to predict the duration of the current advertising downturn. It is equally difficult to forecast how advertising budgets, which generally reset with the start of the new calendar year, will change as we begin Calendar 2009. We do believe current marketplace trends are cyclical, not structural. Data related to advertising spending and consumer media usage supports this position. Given the current economic environment, we are putting increased emphasis on aggressively managing expenses across the company. Despite 22 percent higher paper prices, total company expenses declined 3 percent in the first quarter of quarter fiscal 2009, which ended September 30, 2008. Excluding acquisitions, total company expenses declined 5 percent. Our strategic sourcing initiative has saved us more than $40 million in vendor costs. We are only filling essential open positions.While the weak economy continues to significantly impact the demand for advertising, the other fundamentals of our business remain strong. Our circulation metrics are solid. Our non-advertising related businesses, particularly Meredith Integrated Marketing and brand licensing, are posting strong revenue and profit growth.Meredith is executing a three-pronged performance improvement plan to address the current environment. Our strategies include:1. Special sales incentives and new marketing programs to maximize market share in our core publishing and broadcasting businesses; 2. Aggressive expense management, including tight control of labor and vendor costs; and 3. Revenue diversification initiatives to accelerate growth of new revenue streams, many of which are not dependent on traditional advertising. These include the aforementioned integrated marketing and brand licensing operations, both of which we’ve expanded significantly in the last two years. We’ve also invested in new tools and platforms across our 40+ Web sites and broadened the reach of Meredith Video Solutions – our in-house video creation unit.
WILMINGTON, MA — At a recent School Committee Meeting, Shawsheen Elementary School Principal Lisa King announced the installation of a “Buddy Bench” at her school.Students utilize the bench during recess when they are having difficulty finding a friend or group to play with. If a child is seen sitting alone on the bench, classmates are trained to approach the child and ask him or her to play.King introduced the three students — Julianna, Liam and Craig — who wrote letters to the school’s guidance counselor, asking for such a bench. The students read their letters to the School Committee.“Mrs. Gibbs, out Guidance Counselor, worked all summer to make this happen,” King told the Committee.King also thanked the Wilmington Educational Foundation and the Cottini Family for funding the project, and Wilmington DPW for installing the bench.The school’s Technology Integration Specialist, Kim Provensal, worked with students to create a video highlighting the five rules surrounding the use of the bench. All students watched the video during a recent school-wide assembly.The video was screened for the Committee and can be viewed HERE. (The required password is 0302.)“In second grade, these young leaders came up with the idea,” said King. “In third grade, they helped create the video.”“Thank you for sharing your letters and your video,” responded School Committee Chair Julie Broussard.A Buddy Bench was also installed at the Boutwell Early Childhood Center at the end of last school year.(NOTE: Cover photo of bench is from Provensal’s Twitter account.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.
