Here’s a look at some of the stories that AB’s editorial staff found interesting this week:
First, $1.75 million for hurricane relief and a rivalry renewed. We like this.
Kudos to all of the other programs participating in these fun events for a worthy cause!
Now, to the news highlights…
- Good news for the turf industry as another study indicates that recycled rubber synthetic turf infill poses no health risks.
- Upscale gym Equinox got hit with separate lawsuits: one by a former member alleging a yoga instructor sexually assaulted him, another claiming a personal trainer drove a man to injury.
- High school coaches in hot water over behavior that crosses the line. A longtime track coach was axed after making an inappropriate joke, and a cheer coach was fired for text communication with a student (though she claims her firing was retaliatory after she reported the athletic director for sexual harassment).
- Also, be sure to check out our club columnist Rob on how focusing on customer service helped turn the tide for his business.
