  A picture is worth a thousand words . . . We've all heard that cliche . . . probably a thousand times each. The lacrosse community has started to respond in a big way to the plight of one of our own. It's not time to sit back now.  If you can, and haven't yet, please remember this cause. We still need gift cards for the following stores: Winn Dixie, Citgo, CVS, Family Dollar and WalMart.  Immokalee is a small community and these are the only stores nearby, so please stick with this list.  The agriculture economy many of the families in Immokalee make their living from is not likely to produce any sort of crops for at least the next three months.  This is no longer a short term problem to solve, we need to help for the next three months to keep the community afloat as

  This will be my last article for now as we wait for Irma to hit this weekend. All of us at FLN hope to be back with you as soon as possible, which will likely coincide with when I am back with electricity. I told my son that this weekend might well be the one he tells his grandchildren about and it likely will be. I wish all my fellow Floridians and those in the states that Irma will likely also affect the best of health coming out of this.  People can rebuild property and possessions but family needs protecting. Good luck and God bless.

  Author's Note:  This interview appeared on Monday on InsideLacrosse.com, as an interview by IL Publisher Terry Foy.  I found it fascinating reading about how another Power Conference Commissioner spoke so favorably for the long term prospects for the sport in their conference.  Interestingly enough, the issue of Title IX was considered secondary to endowing the sport financially at the member schools.  That is a step in the right direction.  Another point is that the Commissioner himself has two kids playing lacrosse right now . . .  Congrats to Terry Foy for an excellent interview.  The photo is from the Pac 12 and IL.Com.   Excerpt: On July 21, Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott spoke to IL’s Terry Foy about Utah’s addition of men’s lacrosse for the September issue co
