However, the mournful atmosphere swiftly changed as loud dangdut music suddenly blared from the middle of the cemetery.  “I couldn’t focus on praying as the sound was very disturbing,” Heli told The Jakarta Post on Friday. graveyard music cemetery dangdut scavenger street-musician Depok West-Javalast_img read more

Some little birdie said that our property taxes are going up and we will be told after the elections. I think these would be good for Wellington but with all the anti-tax people in Wellington this little birdie won’t fly.

Report Reply 1 reply · active 204 weeks ago +3 Vote up Vote down SuCo Pride · 204 weeks ago This statement, if accurate, left me a bit concerned: “If passed, Dr. Dennis Rittle, President of Cowley College, said the money will go toward the construction of the campus and the operation cost sustainability of the campus over a 10-year period. By that time the voters will need to decide the funding mechanism thereafter.” What is the plan after 10 years? Shouldn’t the plan be self-sustainability at that point? My impression of the ballot question is that this is how we get this started, and the only time we’re going to be asked to fund the college through special incentives. The statement above leads me to believe that we might get hit again in 10 years. I’m hoping someone might be able to clarify. I think this is a wonderful opportunity for Wellington, and am in full support of the sales tax plan, but if the college can never be self-supported, then we might be barking up the wrong tree.

Also, if the college cannot be self sustaining after 10 years, the citizens are taking on a huge responsibility to keep it going. Just two things to consider before voting on it.

Report Reply 0 replies · active 204 weeks ago +4 Vote up Vote down VVeteran · 204 weeks ago A few things need clarifying for Jessica Lucas, John Munro, SuCo Pride, and Concerned Citizen: The Sumner County Commission minutes @ http://www.co.sumner.ks.us/ElectedOfficials/Commi… contain most of the answers to certain questions. For instance, Jessica is wrong when she stated it was the County Commission who suggested sales tax issue. It was Dr. Rittle though SCEDC Director Davis stating CCCC would entertain a sales tax question on Nov. ballot. Try Aug. 2, 2016 for that minute info. For others, it is not likely a 1/2% sales tax can sustain for a period of 10 years without supplementing. No one has yet stipulated where all the millions of dollars are supposed to be gained (other than a guess). Someone may wish to e-mail Jessica and ask one simple question: Does Cowley County maintain a mill levy to support CCCC collected through property tax or school mill levies? That is where this is headed in 10 years. For those disbelieving a tax increase is coming next year (CueBall), try the Aug. 15, 2016 minutes. Mill levy increase of 4.615 mills this year, it was increased last year 1.974 mills for a total mill increase over 2 years of 6.589. Estimated county valuations is just short of $247 million, up from $244.817 million. It’s all there for people to read. By the way, I reviewed all the County Commission minutes today, and SCEDC Director Stacy Davis used executive sessions to discuss financial affairs or trade secrets, partnerships, trusts, and individual proprietorships 10 times from Jan. 1-Sept 6, 2016. Transparency will not exits in local government unless someone stops using executive sessions to discuss matters that are germane to public interest.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — More than 75 people attended the Cowley College Sumner Campus kickoff breakfast this morning at the Raymond Frye Complex in Wellington.It was also the first event that featured drawings of the proposed campus.Cowley College is proposing to build a Sumner campus in Wellington providing the half-cent sales tax question is approved by voters. The question will be on the November 8 general election ballot.If passed, Dr. Dennis Rittle, President of Cowley College, said the money will go toward the construction of the campus and the operation cost sustainability of the campus over a 10-year period. By that time the voters will need to decide the funding mechanism thereafter.There was still no commitment of the exact location of the campus, nor a dollar figure presented. But the digital renderings did show that the campus will be a newly built facility that will require some space. There are no plans to build dorms.Much of what was presented, had been spoken about before concerning the benefits of having the campus here. This time, though, it included testimonies from various people of the community.Lori Day, an executive for GKN Aerospace in Wellington, said the proposed campus is essential for this company’s machining training.“We are really, really excited with the opportunity to train employees and future employees right here in Wellington,” Day said. “The opportunities for us is long term and strategic.”Wellington vocational agriculture instructor Linda Chase said the opportunity to teach agriculture classes here is exciting. Her students are now traveling 23 miles to Mulvane and that limits student participation.Argonia Superintendent Julie Dolley said currently it takes an Argonia student 65 miles to drive to Ark City to attend a class. She said she is excited about a proposed campus in Wellington which would cut that travel time more than half.Rittle said Wellington was chosen for the campus because it is the center of the county and is readily available to everyone in the county within a 25-mile radius.Rittle also estimated that the Wellington campus will have 800 full-time enrollment students at the Wellington campus. Right now he said there are 555 students enrolled at either Ark City and Mulvane.Stacy Davis, Sumner County Economic Director, said the new dollars generated from such a campus is phenomenal. There will be $48.5 million in federal money, $14.7 million in shared money, and $12.9 million in new job creation to Sumner County. She said an estimated $2.6 million of new money will be pumped into the economy.She also said a Sumner County campus will increase the communities’ economic productivity and earning capacity, and stem local entrepreneurship.“Let me assure you, I have a good relationship with site selectors, whose jobs are to look at various prospective locations for their industries,” Davis said. “They are very, very excited about having a college campus here.”Rittle said Cowley County is currently No. 11 of over 100 counties in Kansas in creating new manufacturing jobs. He attributed it to Cowley College’s campus presence in Ark City. Someone asked about how to sell to the ‘legacy’ voter – those who no longer have children in college.Rittle said the campus will be readily available for any civic group to host events and helping their grandchildren with costs.State Rep. candidate Anita Judd-Jenkins said in the last 40 years, seven new buildings have been built in Ark City for the Cowley Campus including four dormitories. She said over the years Ark City not only has a larger number of skilled employees but also have a group of students who stay in the community and become working members of the retail and marketing sector.The cost of college was brought up and Riddle emphasized that a large percentage of students go to Cowley to keep their college costs down instead of going to a four-year institution right off the bat.Someone asked to compare the Mulvane campus to the one proposed in Wellington. Rittle said the Wellington campus will be four times bigger and will have significantly more classes.Jessica Lucas, who is a the campaign manager for the Cowley-Sumner Campus proposal, said she thinks the vote will be very close and it will require everyone in the room to go out and convince others to vote yes.“Rural communities are increasingly aging and people are making less money. This is part of an effort to reduce this trend,” Lucas said about the proposed campus. “If we do nothing and vote this down, the cost of living here is going to continue to go up, but it will be spread among fewer people.”Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

BBC staff inspired to give golf a go

first_img17 Oct 2014 BBC staff inspired to give golf a go BBC staff have been channelling their energies into a new sporting pursuit and enjoying free golf taster sessions. PGA professionals from Trafford Golf Centre delivered the introduction to golf to workers at the corporation’s MediaCityUK headquarters in Salford under the umbrella of the Lancashire County Golf Partnership. Organised by Lizzie Dignam, who runs the BBC Salford Club, and Bev Dodds, development officer for the Lancashire CGP, the sessions offered staff something different that they can enjoy with their friends and family. Nationally the Get into golf campaign and BBC Sport’s Get Inspired programme have teamed up to encourage people to get active and find new activities in their local area. The sessions covered the basics of the game in a relaxed and enjoyable environment and golfing equipment was provided. Peter Styles, director of golf at Trafford Golf Centre, said: “The taster sessions were delivered to golfing beginners, but they really enjoyed the experience and a number of them are now looking to carry on learning a sport that offers both social and health benefits to all ages and abilities. “The feedback we had was really positive with comments such as: •    I love watching golf so I thought I would give it a go. •    The session was great fun. Definitely want to do it again. •    Great feeling when you hit a good shot. Just want to do it more now. After the taster sessions, follow-up coaching is available for the bargain price of just £25 for five lessons.  The scheme is open to individuals, groups or businesses and is aimed at beginners or those returning to the sport. Styles added: “Our aim at Trafford Golf Centre is to create as many golfers as we can and for more people to enjoy the sport. We start new Get into golf taster sessions and coaching courses every two weeks at Trafford Golf Centre, so it is easy to find a time and date to suit you.” The centre, at Trafford Quays next to the Trafford Centre and the Chill Factore ski slope, has links with a number of clubs in the Manchester area – including Flixton, Northenden, Sale and Davyhulme Park – which provides a pathway into potential golf club membership for those attending the 57-bay driving range, which has five qualified teaching professionals. Get into golf is working alongside Get Inspired to extend its reach to millions of BBC viewers, listeners and web users across the country. “We are delighted to work with Get Inspired. This will be a big boost to our campaign to encourage people of all backgrounds and abilities to take up golf,” said Richard Flint, England Golf’s Participation & Club Support Director. “With this increased awareness we are looking for more clubs to work with the Get into golf programme so that we can offer more opportunities across the country.” Get into golf is a national campaign to inspire adults to take up the game and is run by the England Golf Partnership through its network of County Golf Partnerships, supported by Sport England and National Lottery funding.

STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – FRIDAY DECEMBER 16, 2016

first_imgFINISH LINES: Despite steady rain that began Thursday afternoon and continued into late Friday morning necessitating the closing of the main track for training at Santa Anita and Los Alamitos, where California Chrome is entered in Saturday’s Winter Challenge, trainer Art Sherman expects the 2014 Horse of the Year to run in the race he hopes will lead to the $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational at Gulfstream Park on Jan. 28 and a possible rematch with Bob Baffert-trained Arrogate. “The horse is ready to go,” said Sherman, who had expressed concern about running the “People’s Horse” on a sealed or off track in a prep for the California-bred’s final race. “The weather’s supposed to clear up soon and the people at Los Al have guaranteed me that by race time tomorrow the track will be fast.” Added Los Alamitos head clocker Russ Hudak: “The track was sealed last night and it always bounces back pretty quick.” . . . Jerry Hollendorfer assistant Dan Ward reports that super filly Songbird will return from a six-week hiatus at WinStar Farm in Kentucky to Santa Anita the first week in January to prepare for her four-year-old campaign . . . From Gulfstream Park Publicity comes word that Awesome Banner, winner of the Hutcheson and Swale at Gulfstream, is ticketed for the Grade I Malibu on opening day. “Right now we plan to take a run there,” said Norm Casse, who trains the homebred for Jacks or Better Farm with his father, Mark. “He worked really well yesterday (five furlongs from the gate at Palm Meadows in a bullet 1:00.20, breezing). The Malibu is an opportunity for him to run against straight three-year-olds one more time.” . . . Agent Derek Lawson said Flavien Prat will be ready to ride opening day after recovering from blood in his kidneys following a mishap at Del Mar Nov. 27 . . . J.R. Pegram has Kent Desormeaux booked on Isothern for trainer George Weaver in the Mathis Brothers Mile on turf opening day.

If we beat Arrogate, hey, that’s a major feather in our cap. If you lose, you lost to Arrogate, so to me it’s a good opportunity.“My horse is doing really well and the San Pasqual is where we’re going to go.”LUNAR EXPRESS MAKES STAKES DEBUT IN LA BREARichard Baltas, who has become a trainer to be reckoned with in recent years, hopes to catch lightning in a bottle when he runs Lunar Express in the Grade I La Brea Stakes for three-year-old fillies at seven furlongs on opening day.Lunar Express, a daughter of Malibu Moon, won at a mile on Del Mar’s main track Nov. 12, but not against the quality of rivals she may meet in the La Brea.“She won going a mile and going 6 ½ (furlongs),” Baltas said. “She’s never run against stakes company but she beat older horses last time going a mile on dirt, so I figured this is a perfect distance for her.“We’ll give it a shot.”SANTA ANITA OFFERS POPULAR WALL CALENDAR AND MUCH MORE OPENING DAY            In addition to four graded stakes, Santa Anita will treat fans to its popular 2017 wall calendar, a $1 million guaranteed Late Pick 4 and much more with the beginning of its traditional Winter Meet on Monday, Dec. 26.

Passivhaus Buildings Don’t Heat Themselves

first_img This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Start Free Trial Already a member? Log in Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.center_img For years, the English-language website of the Passivhaus Institut in Germany provided this definition: “A passive house is a building in which a comfortable interior climate can be maintained without active heating and cooling systems. The house heats and cools itself, hence ‘passive.’”The idea of a house that “heats and cools itself” has a certain PR value, of course. The only problem is that it doesn’t exist. Excluding a few buildings in areas with a very mild climate (for example, in San Diego or Honolulu), no one has yet managed to build a house that heats and cools itself. That’s why Passivhaus buildings always need an active heating system, an active cooling system, or both.Until recently, most of the people complaining about exaggerations from the Passivhaus Institut were cynics and curmudgeons like me. Now, however, even Passivhaus fans have begun grumbling about the fallout from the false claim that Passivhaus buildings don’t need heating or cooling systems.The myth is responsible for a great many misunderstandings — misunderstandings that can in some cases lead to bad building designs.Allen Gilliland is the founder of One Sky Homes, a design/build firm in San Jose, California. His company specializes in Passivhaus construction, and Gilliland designs all of his projects’ HVAC systems. In a recent PowerPoint presentation that he shared with a monthly meeting of a group called Passive House California, Gilliland expressed his frustration with the idea that a Passivhaus building “heats and cools itself.” In one of his slides, Gilliland warned, “Beware the Passivhaus Kool Aid: Hyperbole, careless references, and hearsay are everywhere.”It is often said that a building with a low rate of air leakage and above-average amounts of insulation is inherently more comfortable for occupants than an average building.

Another truck possibly shot on Highway 40 south of Grande Prairie

first_imgGRANDE PRAIRIE, A.B. — Mounties in Grande Prairie are investigating after a vehicle was allegedly damaged by a gunshot on Highway 40 south of the Swan City.On Tuesday morning at around 9:30, a vehicle was travelling southbound on Highway 40, two kilometres north of the Wapiti River bridge when the driver heard a loud noise and noticed the vehicle’s windshield had been damaged. The driver of the vehicle was not injured, but the damage to the windshield is believed to be from a firearm.This isn’t the first incident of shots fired south of Grande Prairie.
