Sunday blog: Talking Chicken little, utility reserves, city election, marijuana and garbage collectors

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Five Cueball thoughts for April 12, 2015…1. Chicken Little.“Kansas, the tornado is coming!”It may go down as one of the nuttier weeks I’ve had in awhile when you factor in the election, the website controversies, Easter, and the personal things going in my life. So Wednesday’s non-storm was an accurate metaphor for the week in general.Wednesday, Chicken Little made a visit to Kansas to tell us the sky was falling. It wasn’t so much the weather information. We should all be informed of possible storms ahead. It was how the news was delivered. I actually felt bad for that Channel 12 weather forecaster on my tube Wednesday evening. I knew his bosses were telling him to get on screen and babble about an approaching tornado-like storm that was obviously not materializing, knowing full well half the Kansas population was hating his guts because they were missing a critical episode of “Survivor.”With all the hysteria, I thought at least we could get some rain out of the deal. No such luck. There’s an interesting blog (click here) written by Mark Bogner, who is a meteorologist himself and worked for Channel 3 for 23 years. It is titled “When a City Loses Its Ever-lovin’ Mind.’ In a nutshell, he wrote how weather reporting garners big TV ratings, how people canceled everything including going to work fearing the next impending disaster, and how social media just amplified the problem.Rumor has it Chicken Little was paid handsomely for his appearance here.As for me, I don’t know quite how to handle these weather reports without contributing to the hype. Even the National Weather Service warnings tend to be more wrong than right. I have contemplated not publishing any kind of weather forecast of any kind. But since this is an information site, I’m not comfortable about withholding “news.”It’s like being at the horse race track. You want to quit betting, but what if that next race, your guess may actually be right? 3. Election thoughts.I’m getting pretty good at predicting elections. I accurately picked the city election and the candidates in specific order and came close to even getting the percentages correctly.Shelley HanselI thought Shelley Hansel would win the mayor’s race but not carry the majority of the vote. Hansel, being the public figure she is, had the most name recognition by far. She was also buoyed by the split vote of four other candidates running. People can shoot me for saying this, but I’m not sure she would have won in a one-on-one race with Kelly Green.It was good to see a high voter turnout for a city election. Yes, it could be higher but if you compare Wellington’s city election turnout to those across the state, we were near the top in participation. The number of candidates filing this year was astronomical. Wellington is an engaged community and that bodes well for the future.Tami KlinedistCouple of things I noticed on the campaign. Hats off to Tami Klinedinst, a mayoral candidate who finished third. She worked her tail off in the campaign. She attended every council meeting including the work sessions. Her answers to the Sumner Newscow forum were very well thought out. She put in the time and made the commitment to educate herself on city issues. I’d like to see her run for council in 2017.Secondly, by accident, I discovered how much Green has grown as a civic leader. When I was doing these city council candidates forums, it was a massive heap of e-mails, cutting and pasting, and keeping everything straight. In the process, I accidentally grabbed Green’s 2013 answers to the Sumner Newscow questionnaire I sent out two years ago. It took me about four questions down to figure out her answers weren’t jiving with the questions above. When I suddenly realized I had the wrong answers, I went and got her 2015 responses.Kelly GreenWhat amazed me was how much more knowledgable she was in 2015 compared to 2013 on city issues. Her 2013 responses were terse and somewhat naive. But her 2015 responses were so much more well thought and insightful.And this illustrates an important part to serving in public office. It takes time to learn the system, and truly understand what is best for the city and the people you serve. And it’s one reason I’m not a “throw the bum out,” kind of guy, unless they truly need to be thrown out. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

Our schools need the money. Everyone uses it anyway( A lot of people.) Why not make money off of it. It has many beneficial properties and can be used for so many other reasons than getting a buzz. If the state demonstrates their power to take away the will of the people then we no longer live in a free society. Period. Could the state pass the legislation? No because of all the tight wad’s who are brown nosing the Koch brothers agenda. As #6 on the Forbes list I am sure they have Brownback under their thumb as their puppet. Compared to the rest of the United States we are like residents of Yoder, Kansas compared to the rest of the state. If things don’t start changing to adapt to the new group of people who will inevitably be running this state, county, city soon they will start leaving to pursue a successful career elsewhere. We have to learn how to adapt to change rather than oppose it. I do not even personally smoke or use marijuana but the Positives far outweigh the negatives and I can’t understand why people are so against it.

Report Reply 0 replies · active 278 weeks ago +7 Vote up Vote down credence · 278 weeks ago Concerning the City’s use of the utility fund; I agree with you Tracy, the questions we should be asking start with why the City needs to draw on the utility fund. The fund was intended to provide funds for emergency situations, such as disasters, not to support ever increasing expenditures. The City needs to look at reducing expenses and not finding new revenue sources. Unfortunately our little City has seen a steady decline in population over the past 30 years and the loss of several business, the life blood of a small community, and it does not look as though this trend is going to change. However, our city government still maintains the same level of employment and service for ever decreasing numbers of citizens. I believe it is time to explore ways to decrease costs rather than trying to find ways to increase revenues, especially when those revenues are being taken from the utility fund. Report Reply 0 replies · active 278 weeks ago +4 Vote up Vote down Jon Holmes · 278 weeks ago How about the cost of Vandenburg a major project that needed to be done for years , the street department building that was also needed. Repairs that are put off don’t go away they just get more expensive. City taxes have not been raised in years .The money has to come from somewhere so suppliment from the utility fund or raise the mill levy . Apathy is abundant everywhere , people, get involved then you’ll know what’s going on.I know the council people you have and they are good people who care about Wellington.

Shout out of the week… I always ponder with shout outs, because it is always so easy to overlook the good things in life. But the other day, I was watching the garbage collectors take away my trash and wondered what a thankless job that has to be. Does anyone really thank them or give them high fives or give them any thought whatsoever as they perform what has to be the most physically demanding job of the day? Yet, without them, we’d be in knee deep garbage.So this week my shout out goes to the garbage collectors. You’re doing a great job – even those who are Kansas City Chief fans and give me hell about my Broncos.Follow us on Twitter.center_img 2. Where was should be outraged…The way people reacted to Wednesday’s non-storm is a lot like what is going on with the City of Wellington’s Utility Reserve Fund controversy.It’s fascinating so many people believe there is missing money as if it has been secretly embezzled when there has not been a shred of evidence to substantiate such accusations. And if government officials attempt to explain the situation, they are considered suspicious and/or withholding information.But the reality is this outrage is misguided. People are so busy looking for something criminal, when they should be concerned about the way the city finances have been handled. I can’t seem to wrap my head around the fact the city in the past five years has depleted almost $5.7 million from its reserve funds and possibly sacrificing its municipality bond rating all for the sake of keeping the mill levy same.Wellington City Clerk Shane Shields sent me more figures Friday outlining the cash shortfall of the general fund. According to his figures, had the city not taken any money from the utility reserves, the municipality would have either cut expenses by $2.2 million or have a mill levy increase of 66.43 mills!Holy moly.Of course, the city has always taken money out of the utility fund, and the City of Wellington Financial Advisor John Haas made that point clearly at a recent work session meeting that it is good to do so. As has been documented, the percentage of the removal of funds is what is in question – which has gone from 8 percent in 2010 to 13 percent in 2015 (see story here).The question that people should be asking is, what has changed in the past five years? In 2010, our utility cash reserves were at $11.24 million. At the end of 2015 it will be $5.5 million. In 2010, the city took out $1.15 million out of the utility fund with it was still sitting with $11.23 million in reserves. Our mill levy was exactly the same as it is now.So that to me says:a) the city today is incurring a tremendous amount more in expenses than it did in 2010, or…b) the revenue stream isn’t close to being where it was five years ago.And that is the question we should be asking. Why is that?Are the city departments spending more? Is the hospital draining us dry? Is it this new construction of a $5.7 million Westar substation and electrical transmission lines being built a huge factor? Or is the local economy so much in the crapper that we don’t have that much tax revenue we had five years to work with? Maybe it’s a combination of everything. Maybe it has nothing to do with nothing.I, as a taxpayer, would like more specifics.Nevertheless, I encourage people to not jump to conclusions or go on some conspiracy rant. This is an issue that deserves proper study and a thoughtful resolution.By the way Shelley Hansel and Kip Etter welcome to the council, and congratulations to Jim Valentine and Kelly Green for another four-year term… Better you than me. 4. Wichita’s marijuana proposal…I like to think of myself as a nuance kind of guy which seems appropriate when talking about marijuana.For instance, I’m against legalizing marijuana recreationally which I have documented here, and I’m iffy on the legalization of medical marijuana because there are other alternative prescription drugs out there that do the same thing.However, I would have voted for the marijuana proposal in Wichita which reduces the penalties for marijuana possession.Why? I find it silly to throw someone in jail for something that is legal in a bordering state. Yes, a wrist slapping misdemeanor with a fine like a traffic ticket is sufficient enough.And stay with me here, I’m also OK with Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt asking for the state Supreme Court to strike down the ballot initiative I support. Why? Because city law can’t supersede state law. Schmidt may be a weasel on many issues, but here he’s upholding the state law, which is his job. If you don’t like state law, change it.Which is precisely, where this is going. Kansas in the next 10 years will have legalized marijuana. I see no evidence that the marijuana tide is turning back whether I or you like it or not. I would have placed money that the marijuana initiative wasn’t going to pass in Wichita. And it did. If marijuana forces are winning battles in the conservative Brownback heartland, then they have the battle won.It will be a monumental moment when Sumner Newscow runs down to do a feature story on Wellington’s new downtown marijuana shop. I’m predicting 2025.last_img read more

How City Oilers qualified for FIBA Africa Champions Cup 2017

first_imgFIBAShare on: WhatsApp Mayes amassed a game high 21 points while teammates shooting guard Robinson Opong Odoch and center Adarius Pegues added 15 and 14 points respectively to inspire City Oilers.In an exclusive interview with FIBA.basketball, City Oilers head coach Mandy Juruni said, “We assembled a good team that we thought would win this championship but also looking ahead at a team that can compete in Africa. I thought we started a little bit slow but we caught up as the tournament progressed.”“It was very important for the club to win this tournament because we organized it, are the defending champions and we wanted to go back to the FIBA Africa Champions Cup.”The women’s round robin contest was won by Kenya’s KPA.The top two teams will represent Zone 5 at the FIBA Africa Champions Cup Women 2017 set to be held in Angola from November 3-12. City Oilers will make their second straight appearance at FIBA Africa Champions Cup. PHOTO fiba.basketballKampala, Uganda | FIBA BASKETBALL |  City Oilers won their second straight FIBA Africa Zone 5 Clubs Championship trophy after seeing off Patriots of Rwanda 86-59 in the Final on Saturday.The victory saw the Ugandan side book a ticket to this year’s FIBA Africa Champions Cup which will take place from December 8-17 in the Tunisian city of Rades.In a repeat of the last Group A tie, many a fan expected a closely contested encounter as was the case on October 3, but Mandy Juruni’s side had other plans.The home side, who enjoyed the backing of a fully packed Lugogo Indoor Arena, got behind their side who led 22-20 at the end of the first quarter.Patriots tried to stay in the game but the Oilers led by eventual MVP Jordin Mayes were explosive on offense and lethal on defense to hold a 10-point lead at the half time break 48-38.The Rwandan champions tried everything on offense but their shots were off the mark and they paid for it when the Oilers made it count on the other end of the court.City Oilers established a 69-51 lead at the end of the third quarter and when they scored 15 points and limited Patriots to just five in the opening five minutes of the last quarter to lead 84-56, it was evident that the latter had succumbed to defeat.last_img read more

Riverview Receives $5 Million Donation For Robotic Surgery

first_imgBy Chris Rotolo |RED BANK – The Riverview Medical Center has received a $5 million donation to support the advancement of its robotic surgery program.Timothy J. Hogan, the president of Riverview Medical Center and Hackensack Meridian Health Bayshore Medical Center, said this recent donation from Two River Theater Company founders Joan and Robert Rechnitz is a significant contribution.“This is a truly special display of their financial generosity,” Hogan said in a phone interview. “Joan and Robert have been wonderful supporters of what we do here and continue to play a major role in the process of taking care of this community.”Hogan said the Rechnitz donation will go directly toward aiding the advancement of the medical center’s robotic surgery program, a developing medical technology that offers a less invasive surgical option for patients.“Thanks to this incredibly generous donation, we’re going to be able to increase what it is that we’re capable of doing with this technology,” Hogan added. “Robotic surgery allows our surgeons to have better vision and control over the surgical process which, in turn, produces better clinical outcomes and shorter hospital stays for our patients.”“The medical industry is embracing robotic surgery and so are our patients,” he continued. “It’s becoming a preferred method, because it’s allowing them to experience better care.”Robotic surgery was first introduced at Riverview Medical Center in 2013, when the Rechnitz family provided the initial funding for the facility’s original da Vinci Si Robotic Surgical System.Since implementation, nearly 1,000 patients have been treated using this state-of-the-art surgical equipment, which allows surgeons to make smaller incisions with improved visualization and range of motion.Enhanced visual surgery that previously required patients to be opened up completely are now conducted with minimally invasive techniques, helping patients recover faster and with reduced pain and scarring.The Rechnitz’s most recent donation will allow for upgrades to the medical center’s robotic surgery model, which is referred to as the da Vinci XI.“Both Joan and I are incredibly thankful for the care we receive at Riverview Medical Center and that makes our giving extremely meaningful to us,” Robert Rechnitz said in a statement.Despite their own multimillion dollar donation, the Rechnitz family is calling upon the community for further fundraising by introducing a “giving challenge” that they hope will inspire an additional $5 million to be raised this year.“We do hope the larger community responds to our wish to bring more philanthropic support to the hospital, continuing to ensure it’s a place we can all rely on for the highest quality health care,” Robert Rechnitz added.To learn more about how you can participate in the Rechnitz’s giving challenge, contact Jennifer Smith, senior executive director of Riverview Medical Center Foundation at jenniferl.smith@hackensackmeridian.org.This article was first published in the April 12-19, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

first_img– CANU failed to provide sufficient evidenceAndre Gomes, called “Zipper,” was on Thursday freed of drug trafficking charges by Georgetown Magistrate Leron Daly, who ruled that the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) had been unable to support their allegations against Gomes with enough evidence to warrant a conviction.Freed: Andre “Zipper” GomesGomes, 57, of Craig Street, Campbellville, Georgetown, had been arraigned on trafficking in narcotics charges after a search carried out at his residence had allegedly unearthed 992 grams of cocaine, a quantity of cash, jewellery, and other valuables.Based on reports received, ranks of the drug enforcement unit had swooped down on Gomes’s residence and conducted a search which unearthed the cocaine.

Berbice residents protest against ministers at Govt “outreaches”

first_imgGovernment Ministers visited Region Six (East Berbice/Corentyne) on Friday in what was expected to be a ministerial outreach to the region however, widespread picketing and poor turnout were the order of the day.Government had arranged 11 meetings in the region with the hope of meeting with residents. However, the ministers turned up at nine of the proposed meetings and were heavily picketed at most of them.The two meetings scheduled for the East Bank of the Berbice did not materialized, focusing the handful of people – who went out to have issues addressed – to return home.At Glasgow also in the East Bank of Berbice, Ministers Winston Felix and Tabitha Sarabo-Halley were expected to address residence but dissatisfied residents turned up with placards, highlighting the fact that the current administration is illegal as thy called on the David Granger led administration to resign from office.The situation was similar at Lighttown where Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence and Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman were slated to address residents.Meanwhile, at the other end of the region at Crabwood Creek, Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan was greeted with a barrage of protesters when he went into the community.The protesters also chanted slogans as minister within Indigenous Affairs Ministry Valerie Lowe spoke to less than ten persons as she announced that General and Regional Elections will be held this year.Also attending the meeting was Minister Anette Ferguson who explain the central Government’s role.At the end of the meeting the few farmers, who attended expressed disappointment stating that none of the ministers addressed issues of concern to them – namely agriculture as rice, cash crop and cattle farmers are in need of urgent intervention from central government to have canals and dams upgraded.last_img read more

Young’s new contract a big deal

first_imgYoung is a bargain for the Rangers at about $3.5 million this season, the last of a $10 million, four-year contract for the three-time All-Star. The Rangers will pick up a team option for $5 million next season before the extension begins. By agreeing to an extension, Young will bypass a chance for free agency in 2008. “I’m sure it’s great to see what’s out there,” Young said. “I did not want to go somewhere else and then see that Texas is in the World Series. We have a great core here and we’re all committed. I want to be here and help promote a winner.” The current deal was signed in 2004, the same spring Young switched from second base to shortstop after Alex Rodriguez was traded to the New York Yankees. Young’s extension will be the second-largest contract in Rangers history. The biggest was the $252 million, 10-year deal Rodriguez got in December 2000. Young, a Bishop Amat High School product, didn’t discuss the finances of the deal, which is for 2009-13. The $80 million figure was disclosed by a person familiar with the negotiations and who spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement has been made. The Rangers were expected to announce the deal today, when they play their spring training opener in Surprise. A .300 career hitter, Young was the AL batting champion in 2005 at .331, and was the All-Star game MVP last summer. Young hit .314 with 52 doubles, 14 homers and 103 RBIs last season. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Gladys Knight to receive Ella Award tonight

first_imgBEVERLY HILLS – Gladys Knight, whose five-decade career covers gospel, pop and R&B, will receive the 16th annual Ella Award from the Society of Singers tonight. Named after its first recipient, Ella Fitzgerald, the award is given to singers “whose significant musical accomplishments are equaled by their dedication to charitable and humanitarian causes both local and international,” according to the Society of Singers. SOS, a nonprofit organization that offers comprehensive services to meet the emergency financial needs of professional singers worldwide, will present the award to Knight at a ceremony at the Beverly Hilton hotel. Melissa Etheridge, Smokey Robinson, Johnny Mathis, Kimberley Locke and Wayne Brady are among those expected to attend. Previous recipients of the award, besides Fitzgerald herself, include Frank Sinatra, Elton John, Peggy Lee, Lena Horne, Rosemary Clooney, Tony Bennett and Placido Domingo. “Gladys Knight has one of the greatest and most distinctive voices of our time, and is a woman who has helped countless people through her humanitarian and philanthropic work,” said SOS President and Chief Executive Officer Jerry F. Sharell. A seven-time Grammy Award winner with number one hits in the pop, R&B and Adult Contemporary formats, Knight has released nearly 40 albums. Her most recent, “Before Me,” a tribute to the likes of Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday. The fall 2006 release was part of a charity initiative that Knight launched in collaboration with Ashley Stewart Stores. She also works with charities ranging from the American Diabetes Association and the American Cancer Society to the Minority AIDS Project and amFAR, according to SOS. SOS was founded in 1984 by Chairman Emeritus Ginny Mancini and Gilda Maiken Anderson when the two former professional singers realized that many of their friends and colleagues were without pensions, unions, medical insurance or places to turn for financial help during tough times. SOS aids professional singers of all ages, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, and offers scholarship programs designed to advance the vocal arts. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

MAN WRONGLY ACCUSED OF RAPE SAYS HE MAY NEVER LIVE IN DONEGAL AGAIN

first_imgA man wrongly accused of being a “sexual predator” has said he does not know if he will ever be able to return to live in Co Donegal after his ordeal.Kieron Coyle had been accused of rape and sexual assault while working as a taxi-driver in Derry last Christmas.Coyle, 39, has been living in Killygordon with his wife and child for the past number of years. But people had blanked him and even threatened him since the allegations came out.However the case against him was dropped this morning by the Public Prosecution Service in Derry.However Mr Coyle told Donegaldaily.com that his life has been destroyed by the claims.‘The bottom line is that I have never been guilty of any of these claims and I knew that from the start.“And yet I was held by police for five days and made to feel like a convicted criminal. Mud sticks and that’s just how it is.“I will always be seen as having done something wrong. There are people who were at my wedding and they will not speak to me because of this,” he said.Kieron said he does not known the woman who accused him of rape other than the fact that he brought her to a house in Derry when she was very drunk.He said he will never forget being arrested and held in prison until he could come up with the bail money.“I told the other prisoners I was in for drugs offences but rapists and paedophiles are the worst things in prison.“On my last night there, my name was in the newspapers as a rapist and I went through hell. The other prisoners were roaring and shouting at me. I was terrified and I didn’t come out of my cell,” he said.He said he has also been told to “watch his back” by the PSNI as Dissident Republicans had compiled a profile on him.He said he now just wants to get on with his life but does not known if he will be able to pick up the pieces of his life.“I love Donegal but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to go back to Killygordon.“I just want people to see that I didn’t do this – that I’m not this sexual monster I have been painted as.“Our lives have been hell but I always knew I never done this. Hopefully I can start again,” he said.MAN WRONGLY ACCUSED OF RAPE SAYS HE MAY NEVER LIVE IN DONEGAL AGAIN was last modified: March 16th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:KIERON COYLElast_img read more
