LIVE: New center for stuttering education coming to UT Austin

AUSTIN (KXAN) — A new center aimed at helping those who stutter is coming to The University of Texas at Austin.

On campus on Monday, Arthur M. Blank announced a $20 million grant to form The Arthur M. Blank Center for Stuttering Education and Research in the Moody College of Communication.

Blank is the co-founder of The Home Depot and owner of the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United. His daughter is a student at the Moody College.

According to the announcement, stuttering has genetically been part of Blank’s family, and he too is a person who stutters.

The center will work to expand the work of Dr. Courtney Byrd, who according to the university, uses a holistic model for stuttering treatment and clinical training. Byrd’s work is said to be a scientifically grounded and therapeutic approach for stutterers of all ages.

With Frank Ragnow still banged up, Lions’ Joe Dahl could be headed for first career start at center

ALLEN PARK — Injuries to Halapoulivaati Vaitai and Joe Dahl have forced the Detroit Lions to roll with three different offensive line combinations in the first four games of the season. Now an injury to center Frank Ragnow could force them into a fourth different lineup on Sunday when they travel to Jacksonville for a matchup with the Jaguars.

Ragnow has been excellent since the Lions moved him to center last year. He hasn’t allowed so much as a QB hit this season and is the second-ranked run blocker at the position according to ProFootballFocus. But he tweaked his groin in Detroit’s return from the bye on Wednesday, did not practice on Thursday and did very little during the 15 minutes of practice that were open to reporters on Friday afternoon.

Rookie Logan Stenberg is Ragnow’s listed replacement on the depth chart, but it’s unlikely he would actually play the

“The “Be the Change — Connecticut” project will enable Southwestern Area Health Education Center and
