Traverse City is an awesome place to call home and we appreciate the community that really embraces every Coastie who is stationed here. Whenever we have the chance to invite folks into our little slice of life, we are so excited! Just a few weeks ago, we had an Open Ramp day as part of the National Cherry Festival and got the chance to showcase our work to the local community. Enjoy the recap! .

Today we honor Edward Roski, an University of Southern California Alumni and United States Marine Corps Vietnam Era veteran. Roski became a minority owner of the Los Angeles Kings in 1995 and a minority owner of the Los Angeles Lakers in 1998. Roski and Philip Anschutz were majority owners of the Los Angeles Arena Company, looking to replace the Great Western Forum for the Kings, and exercised an option to buy 25% of the Lakers, with the Lakers agreeing to become a tenant in the planned arena. Roski and Anschutz developed the Staples Center for both teams. During his minority ownership, the Lakers won NBA Championships in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2009 and 2010; and the Kings won the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014.
Roski proposed a stadium in the Los Angeles suburb of the City of Industry for a National Football League team. In 2010, the California legislature passed a bill that gave Roski an exemption to environmental review for the $800 million stadium proposal. The deal was not completed, due to the announcement of the Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park instead. Roski was also part of a $1 billion project to build Las Vegas Stadium for the relocated Oakland Raiders and the UNLV Rebels football teams, but later pulled out of the project. .

Here is some #WednesdayWisdom for everyone!
If you approach every obstacle in your chosen path with strength and resilience, you will overcome every obstacle that is in your way! The relentless pursuit of what matters most will always end in victory!
Our focus is on treatment for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Military Sexual Trauma (MST). We also provide treatment for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Anxiety, Depression, and Moral Injury.
All treatment is tailored to the individual needs of the patient based on a comprehensive assessment and may include: • Psychotherapy
• Cognitive rehabilitation
• Stress management skills
• Sleep training/education, sleep studies
• Integrative medicine for wellness, such as acupuncture, yoga, and nutrition
• Family counseling
• Employment and financial education and resources
• Assistance with navigating the VA system
• Physical, speech, and occupational rehabilitation
The heart of the program is a 2-week Intensive Out-Patient (IOP) program onsite at the Emory Brain Health Center in Atlanta, GA. We fly you out, put you up in a hotel across the street, and for 2 weeks you will receive treatment from a world-class team of doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, and fellow Veterans. We do a weekend outing and some other fun stuff, too.
After the 2-weeks, a Case Manager will help you coordinate follow-on care as necessary in your local community. And we follow up at 3, 6, and 12 months to ensure patients maintain the gains they make in our program.
Most of the Vets who go through our program are prior service. But we’ve helped several Active Duty and Drilling Reservists who didn’t want to seek help through the military for fear of harming their careers.
