Out of football during 1966, Trimble remained in Hudson, Quebec, a suburb of Montreal. Here, he and a Montreal friend began to market a new type of goal post that was supported by only one post, instead of the two that had been the standard since the game began. The so-called "slingshot" goalposts, named because of their "Y" shape, were adopted by the NFL in 1967, just after Trimble returned to coaching as an offensive line assistant with the New York Giants. Trimble had been offered the job by head coach Allie Sherman while attempting to sell the team his innovative goal posts.

It is located within the Municipality of Emerson – Franklin. Location and transportation Emerson, named after writer Ralph Waldo Emerson, is located 96 kilometers south of Winnipeg along the Red River (Red River of the North), just north of the United States border at the point where the province of Manitoba and states of Minnesota and North Dakota meet. The community is bordered by the Rural Municipality of Montcalm in Manitoba, Pembina County (Pembina County, North Dakota) in North Dakota, and Kittson County (Kittson County, Minnesota) in Minnesota. The towns of St. Vincent, Minnesota and Pembina, North Dakota are located just a few kilometers south of the border in the United States. The unincorporated community of Noyes, Minnesota lies immediately across the border from Emerson, however the border crossing between the two is now closed. The principal roads serving Emerson are Highway 75 (Manitoba Highway 75), which runs from the border north to Winnipeg, and Provincial Road 200 (Manitoba Provincial Road 200), which begins at Highway 75, crosses the Red River and then runs through the community and north to Winnipeg along the east side of the river. Emerson port of entry The border crossing at Emerson, Manitoba and Pembina, North Dakota is the fifth busiest along the Canada-U.S. Border, and the second busiest west of the Great Lakes. It is part of a large trade corridor that links the Canadian prairies with the United States and Mexico. Annual cross-border trade is valued at approximately $14 billion CAD (Canadian dollar). The ports of entry on both sides are open 24 hours and offer full border services. An estimated one million people come through the border crossing each year. Manitoba Government - Current Transportation Planning Studies For many years, Emerson was among very few communities in Canada to have multiple border crossings: the Emerson East port of entry (opposite Noyes, Minnesota) on the east side of the Red River and the current port of entry (formerly known as West Lynne) on the west side of the river. In its original configuration, Highway 75 came from the north, crossed the river at Emerson and ended at the Emerson East crossing, then the more commonly used border crossing, afterwards continuing south as U.S. Route 75. To use the West Lynne crossing, travelers would have to turn south at an intersection about 0.5 kilometers north of the border on to a short road (later known as Highway 29 (Manitoba Highway 29)) leading to the border and then continuing south on U.S. Route 81. thumb 300px right Highways 75 and 200 at Emerson, current and original configurations (File:Emerson highway map.png)After Interstate 29 replaced the U.S. 81 in 1957, the Emerson East crossing continued to be the primary port of entry, although its importance began to decline. In the 1980s, the Highway 75 29 junction was rebuilt to direct traffic going through towards the West Lynne crossing, making it the new primary port of entry. Those wanting to continue on Highway 75 now had to turn east at the junction. Use of the Emerson East crossing dwindled afterwards and in 2003, the Canadian government closed Emerson East and merged its operations with West Lynne (afterwards known as Emerson) in order to consolidate resources. The American government followed in 2006. In 2012, the Manitoba government re-routed Highway 75 and Provincial Road 200 to its current configuration. Highway 75 at Canhighways.com South of Emerson, two major U.S. rail lines, the BNSF Railway (Formerly the Great Northern Railway (Great Northern Railway (U.S.))) and the Soo Line Railroad cross the border and are met, respectively, by the Canadian National (Canadian National Railway) and Canadian Pacific Railways. There are customs inspection facilities for both lines on both sides of the border. History thumb right 300px Court house and former town hall, built in 1917. (File:Emerson court house.jpg) In 1873, American businessmen Thomas Carney (Thomas Carney (Canadian politician)) and William Fairbanks, following advice from railroad entrepreneur James J. Hill, received a grant from the Province of Manitoba for 640 acres along the east side of the Red River, just north of the Canada-United States border. Hill had advised Carney and Fairbanks that the area had significant potential to become a railway hub for the region. The existing settlement of West Lynne on the west side of the river had already established itself as a key point along the trading routes between Winnipeg and St. Paul, Minnesota. With the emergence of railroads during this time, the addition of their own railway would bring great economic prosperity. ) is a small town of about 1700 people in the Pembina Valley region (Pembina Valley Region, Manitoba) of Manitoba, Canada, located about 50&nbsp;km south of Winnipeg (Winnipeg, Manitoba) and 50&nbsp;km north of Emerson (Emerson, Manitoba). Morris is host to the annual ''Manitoba Stampede & Exhibition''.

politics, winning as a Progressive Conservative (Progressive Conservative Party of New Brunswick) candidate in the 2003 election (New Brunswick general election, 2003). * Paul Duffie, a cabinet minister in the government of Frank McKenna, was easily elected in '''Grand Falls (Grand Falls, New Brunswick)'''. He returned to Canada in the 1970s where he became a speechwriter for the Canadian Government, and eventually came to Riverview, New Brunswick, where he still resides, to begin as newspaper editor for the ''Moncton Free Press''. In his retirement he delved into his remarkable store of memories to publish three books on Canadians in Hollywood: ''Stardust and Shadows'' (about the silent film era), and ''Once Upon a Time in Paradise'' (about the period from the late 1920s to the 1950s), and most recent book, ''Donald Brian: the King of Broadway'', about the nearly forgotten performer Donald Brian. Political career He was first involved in politics when he was elected in 1989 to the municipal council of the Town of Riverview (Riverview, New Brunswick). He was re-elected to that position in 1992 and 1995 before successfully running for mayor in 1998. He was re-elected mayor in 2001 and served in that capacity until his election to the legislature in the 2003 provincial election (New Brunswick general election, 2003). Fitch was the only non-incumbent Progressive Conservative to win a seat in that election and was immediately named to cabinet (Executive Council of New Brunswick) as Minister of Energy (Department of Energy (New Brunswick)). He was shuffled (cabinet shuffle) to the new Justice and Consumer Affairs (Department of Justice and Consumer Affairs (New Brunswick)) portfolio on February 14, 2006 despite having no legal training; this was made possible by disassociating the functions of the Office of the Attorney General (Office of the Attorney General (New Brunswick)) from the Justice Department.
