Post Career Highlights

For so many of us, the fact that we’re still standing is a miracle. From early childhood concussions, car accidents, skateboarding, and 25 years of farming and landscaping, my pain and injury narrative can fill a book. Cannabis, yoga, and a Spitfire will to live have been my saving graces for healing and moving forward. After herniating multiple discs and undergoing PCL reconstruction surgery and MCL arthroscopy, I had to hang my board on the hook in order to maintain my basic A.D.L’s and active farm consultant role. Some of my greatest athletic honors have come from being sponsored by Tactics Boardsports. They connected we me with flow from Vans, Bacon, 1984, and more. Together, we petitioned and built the Washington-Jefferson Street Bridge park in Eugene, Oregon. I sat on both the RFP design committee, and the fundraising committee. Coproducing a skate art auction and raising over $15,000 with additional grant-writing money gave me such a strong sense of fulfillment and contribution to my skate community. Additionally, helping to build, caretake, and manage the Shelter Indoor Skatepark in Eugene gave me the skate family I still connect with to this day. While my late 30s and 40s are devoted to activism and education, I look forward to the day my man will build me a padded half pipe so I can teach our future kids to ride!

GRWG) managed to close in the green, with gains of 24%. This still meant giving up some of the gains accrued between Aug. 12 and Aug. 19.

The rally started last Friday when the grow supplies company reported its second-quarter financial results, establishing a new revenue record for the tenth consecutive quarter.

GrowGeneration continued to spike on Monday after Jim Cramer interviewed CEO Darren Lampert on CNBC, describing its business model as the “most exciting” he’s seen in retail.

Following a five-day rally, GrowGeneration’s stock hit a peak of $22.30 on Wednesday, and commenced a small decline as excitement around its earnings wore off and some investors looked to take profits. On Friday, shares took a dive of more than 9% after Hindenburg Research published a report arguing the “Euphoric Retail Stock Has The Brightest Management Red Flags” that analysts have “ever seen,” saying downside surpasses 70%.

With CFL season scuttled, Bergman enjoys 'just being a dad'
With CFL season scuttled, Bergman enjoys 'just being a dad'
The silver lining for Norfolk County native Shane Bergman in COVID-19 upsetting plans for the 2020 Canadian Football League season is the extra time he got to spend with his nine-month-old son, Asher.

The season, originally scheduled to begin in June, was officially cancelled this week.

The CFL had asked the federal government for a $30-million interest-free loan with the intention of creating a hub city (Winnipeg) to host games with no spectators. But the loan was turned down and the CFL put the brakes on plans for a six-game regular season, followed by playoffs and a Grey Cup.

“I had no idea what was going on with those talks between the CFL and the federal government,” said the offensive lineman for the Calgary Stampeders. “I didn’t know about the final decision but I thought it was going (to be cancelled) just because it took so long. It was inevitable.”
