Clark County Fire District 6 seeking public’s support through levy lift

first_imgClark County Fire District 6 seeking public’s support through levy liftPosted by Jacob GrannemanDate: Tuesday, July 14, 2020in: Newsshare 0 Aug. 4 special election will determine future funding for growing districtCLARK COUNTY — Clark County fire District 6 hopes to increase their funding through the Aug. 4 primary and special election. They’re banking on the COVID-19 pandemic not adversely affecting the vote.This year’s proposed levy lid lift for the district is the first since 2015, and would return the district’s levy from the depreciated $1.16 to $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed property value. As property values rise, the levy rate falls. Fire District 6 vehicles and firefighters can be seen here in response to a shooting last year at Sarah J. Anderson Elementary School. Photo by Jacob GrannemanFire District 6 vehicles and firefighters can be seen here in response to a shooting last year at Sarah J. Anderson Elementary School. Photo by Jacob GrannemanFire Chief Kristan Maurer and Fire Commission Chair Brad Lothspeich will both be on two virtual meetings to be streamed live on YouTube this week and next, to answer community questions and share the district’s vision. The meetings, on July 16 and 21 will both be at 5:30 p.m. and there will be a place for real-time comments and questions.   If passed, the new funds would be primarily used for the expansion of the district’s resources with a new unit in Salmon Creek and new firefighting apparatuses district-wide. For the average homeowner in the area, which is typically a home of $350,000, the levy lift would equate to a cost of a little less than $10 a month. “We’re not any different than any other area in Clark County and the growth is exponential right now,” Maurer said. “Over the last 10 years, our call volume has increased greatly, right about 70 percent. Just in the last year, we increased about 13 percent in call volume. We serve the community with the same staffing that we’ve had for a number of years. We need to add staffing so that we can more effectively respond to those calls, get there quicker. The more calls we get with the less staffing, the higher our response times are.”In some cases, response times that have been kept at five minutes, can be stretched to as much as 10. This type of delay can occur, for example, if the Salmon Creek unit is already responding to a call, and the Hazel Dell unit must respond to a second call in Salmon Creek. Though residents of the district will vote on Aug. 4, the lid lift would not go into effect for home and business owners until spring of 2021. Fire District 6 is a fairly large district in the heart of Clark County, stretching from the fairgrounds to Vancouver’s edge. The district covers Felida, Mt. Vista, Salmon Creek, Lake Shore, and Hazel Dell.All in all, the district serves approximately 75,000 people over nearly 40 square miles.The new training facility for District 6 is seen under construction in Salmon Creek here. It will be the first center the district has ever had. Photo by Jacob GrannemanThe new training facility for District 6 is seen under construction in Salmon Creek here. It will be the first center the district has ever had. Photo by Jacob GrannemanWith the COVID-19 pandemic, the district has not suffered dramatically, Lothspeich and Maurer said. Nevertheless, there have been extra expenditures, they said, including supplies like personal protective equipment.In spite of the challenges, Maurer and Lothspeich remain hopeful that the community who backed them in 2015, will do so again. “We’re in a really great time right now where we can start looking outside the box at different response models, different apparatus to respond, to just make our services more effective,” Maurer said. “The other thing that I’m really excited about is the continued community support that we’ve had. The citizens of District 6 and the community of District 6, has always supported us overwhelmingly with these levy requests.” Lothspeich said he is not altogether unsympathetic to the financial crisis that has paralleled COVID-19, but also believes that emergency response time will be a reason that people support the levy. “We had to make a decision at our last meeting in March whether we were going to go forward with it or not at that point,” Lothspeich said. “We’re hoping that our citizens will look at it carefully and determine if it’s something that they can support or not. We understand that times are tough out there for people and even a $8 or $9 a month increase for some people could make a difference. But we’ve always had real good support from our community, and we decided to go forward with it and let the people decide.”In Salmon Creek the district was able to rebuild their station there last year, with their first ever training center also being constructed right now on site. The district’s Hazel Dell station, however, is in need of upgrades and repair. Deemed as a critical building needed during a disaster by Homeland Security, the station needs to be made earthquake-proof as well.   The district, like all others, is required to operate on a maximum of 1 percent budget increase each year, with some of that being used and some being saved.  “We’re pretty conservative. We’ll probably hang on to a little bit of it in reserves so we can withstand those decreases based on the 1 percent to our budget,” Lothspeich said. “The district has never gone to the community asking for bond money outside of the normal levy to pay for apparatus. We pay for our apparatus and remodel our stations out of the dollar and 50 budget, we don’t ask the community beyond that like the schools do.”To watch the meetings live, go to the district’s website at www.ccfd6.org. Members of the public who are unable to attend the meetings are encouraged to contact Chief Maurer at (360) 576-1195 or [email protected] with questions.

According to VW boss Herbert Diess, “It would be a mistake not to address the increasingly volatile market with potentially game-changing new offerings. Trouble is, we already have a very full plate, and there is a limit to our spending power.”The plan would be to build EVs the size of the compact Up! with an electric range of up to 160 km for urban drivers, and to build in the ability to spawn up to 10 other body styles inside the brand, to be used as taxis and shuttle vans. Volkswagen is planning a lot of changes for the coming years, and they aren’t insignificant ones, either, according to a new report.Within 10 years, the Volkswagen group is planning on ditching a lot of the extra weight it pulls around, including a few vehicle platforms and brands, Automobile Magazine reports.Before it even got off the ground, VW is allegedly killing off Porsche’s proposed SPE electric sports car platform, and instead will work only with the three new architectures it’s already developed, the MEB, PPE and the J1, which underpins the Taycan. The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever RELATED TAGSVolkswagenNon-LuxuryNew VehiclesNon-Luxury Even the upcoming electric Boxster and Cayman will have to adapt and use a converted MMB structure instead of its own new platform.While VW puts itself in a good position to create 70 new electric vehicles (EVs) by 2028, the future doesn’t look so bright for a few of the luxury brands under the company’s umbrella.Bentley will most likely get chopped or sold off, says Automobile, as almost no part of VW’s plans for the future includes massive W-12 luxury cars helmed by execs not keen on EV technology. Bugatti might also be gifted to Ferdinand Piech of Porsche, and Italdesign and Ducati could also be blown off soon, too.Lamborghini is the only brand that might get a second chance, the report says. VW, Audi and Porsche are likely to survive untouched.RELATED So VW is making some big changes, but as Diess says, “risks and opportunities live next door to each other.” Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2 The VW I.D.

CU-Boulder Journalism School Discontinues Graduate Program In Integrated Marketing Communication

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Based on the recommendation of a faculty committee, the University of Colorado at Boulder has decided to discontinue a 10-year-old Integrated Marketing Communication (IMC) graduate track in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication. CU-Boulder Provost Phil DiStefano said the decision was difficult, given the accomplishments of many of the program’s graduates and faculty. However, DiStefano said, a number of staffing issues and lack of cross-discipline collaboration contributed to the decision to discontinue the track. “In a time of severe budgetary challenges brought on by the state economy, we must focus our investments on areas of distinction. It is not in the best interests of the campus, students or alumni to continue to offer any course of study where we cannot do so with excellence.” DiStefano said there are only two tenured faculty who teach regularly in the track, both of whom are half-time. As a result, much of the teaching in the IMC program has been accomplished with contract faculty. The school also has searched twice for a permanent director for the track, both times unsuccessfully. The two part-time faculty members will be integrated into the advertising program, he said. Students currently enrolled in the IMC track will continue through to graduation. However, no new admissions to the program will be authorized and the track will cease as a formal part of the school’s curriculum in December 2003, when the last currently enrolled students complete their studies. Journalism faculty members were informed of the decision in a joint letter from DiStefano and journalism Interim Dean Stewart Hoover on Monday. Published: Oct. 7, 2002 last_img read more

From the Chancellor: A warm welcome

first_img Published: Aug. 26, 2019 Welcome to a new semester at CU Boulder! I want to especially welcome those who are new to our campus community. Though times have changed since I was a student (yes, I was once a student), here is my list of top five tips for students based on 45 years of experience as a professor, parent and now chancellor of this beautiful campus.Take care of yourself and others.  Mental and physical health and wellness are a top priority on our campus. Self-care is a key ingredient to your success. And please take the initiative to be on the lookout for others. We have many services available on campus. Take advantage of everything a college campus has to offer.  You will find hundreds of stimulating events and speakers on campus throughout the semester. You also have the opportunity to meet people from other regions of the country and world. Your fellow students are from 50 states and 106 countries.Be present.  Tune out smartphones, the internet, social media in class. Look up and see what’s around you and soak it in.Try things outside your comfort zone. A university campus is about self-discovery and exploration. This may be academic, social, cultural or physical. The opportunities are endless. Meet new people and try different classes. Here is one place I like to go, but there are so many more places to explore.Have fun. Taking time to explore outside the classroom can broaden horizons and experiences in surprising ways and offer you some much needed down time. Whatever your endeavors, please be safe.Have a great semester and Go Buffs!Philip P.

I wanted to give a huge thumbs up for the great information posted on the blog. Salubritas 2 months Merck has launched two new devices in India recently, namely Gavi and Geri, along with Gems, a complete culture medium suite, which will be made available in partnership with Genea Biomedx, to IVF clinics and hospitals.Gavi is the world’s first automated vitrification instrument, developed with the aim to achieve a consistent and standardised vitrification process. Geri is a benchtop incubator with individually controlled incubation chambers per patient to minimise disruptive events to the early-stage embryo. It also incorporates a time-lapse camera to capture images of embryos as they develop.This new technology provides an environment that helps to reduce external stresses on the embryos of patients undergoing fertility treatment. Individually-controlled chambers allow the embryos of each patient to grow separately and real-time cameras attached to each chamber reduces the frequency of opening and closing the chambers in Geri. Not only does this allow observation of the progress of embryo growth without removing the embryo from the chamber, but also reduces the impact on the embryo of factors such as changes in gas concentration and temperature.“Merck has a market-leading portfolio of drugs and offers an array of clinic optimisation services. Fertility lab procedures involve various steps and variables which can impact the overall success rate of IVF treatment. The introduction of cutting-edge fertility technology complements our portfolio and promises to decrease manual labour, increases precision and thus optimises IVF outcomes for patients in India.Studies say nearly 27.5 million Indian couples are actively seeking solution for infertility, and with this technology, are in position to offer them better access to world-class treatment” said Anandram Narasimhan, General Manager – India Cluster, Merck Biopharma.Through the expansion of its portfolio of innovative pharmaceutical and technology products that fulfill unmet medical needs in the field of fertility treatment, Merck is aiming to provide broader range of products to help support healthcare professionals to optimise treatment outcomes and fulfill the dream of becoming a parent.

Cinderella theme developing in women’s majors

first_imgBIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Cinderella may have a sister starring in a sequel this week at the U.S. Women’s Open. With Sarah Jane Smith pulling away in the rain-shortened second round Friday at Shoal Creek, it feels as if a theme could be developing in this year’s women’s majors. A couple months after Pernilla Lindberg won in an upset, Smith is positioning herself early to try to do the same. Lindberg was No. 150 in the world when she broke through to win the ANA Inspiration as her first LPGA title in April. She played like a world No. 1, defeating Inbee Park in a playoff to win wire to wire. Smith is No. 97 in the world as she also seeks to make her first LPGA title a major. With another 5-under-par 67 Friday, Smith was pulling away from the field in the morning wave, up by as many as five shots. “Ten under in two days here is unbelievable,” said Carlota Ciganda (71), who is seven shots back. This wasn’t easy to see coming, with Smith missing the cut in five of her last six starts. She has been frustrated with her struggles. “I haven’t handled it well,” Smith said. “It’s been a rough month. It hasn’t been a lot of fun.” Smith stuck around that Monday at the ANA to see Lindberg win. They’re friends. Lindberg thanked Smith with an encouraging message. “The nicest message I have gotten, as a pick me up, because I wasn’t going through the best of times,” Smith said. “She has been a great friend.” Smith said watching Lindberg inspired her. “It made me put in a little more work, just to try to follow in her footsteps,” Smith. Lindberg won in her 250th LPGA start. Full-field scores from the U.S. Women’s Open Smith is making her 223rd tour start this week. There’s a special Aussie connection here at Shoal Creek that Smith is looking to build upon. Wayne Grady won the PGA Championship here in 1990. Count LPGA Hall of Famer and fellow Aussie Karrie Webb among those who believe Smith can finish this off. “I have always been a big believer Sarah is capable of playing the way she has the last couple days here,” said Webb, a two-time U.S. Women’s Open winner. “We’ve had conversations, where I’ve told her it’s all there. She just has to believe.” Sean Foley, Smith’s swing coach, is on the same page as Webb. “Sarah is going to hold a trophy at some point,” Foley told GolfChannel.com late last year. “She’s too skilled not to win.” Lindberg showed Smith how quickly a player can put it all together. They may be from opposite sides of the planet, but they have a lot in common. Smith, 33, has her husband, Duane, as caddie. Lindberg, 30, has her fiancé, Daniel, on her bag. This quest is very much a joint adventure for both couples. “We are so lucky,” Duane said. “We get to travel the world together. It’s been amazing. We struggled for the longest time, just sort of breaking even, but over the last few years she has played very well. She has built a life for us.” Sarah Jane and Duane both grew up on the Sunshine Coast of Australia, knowing each other since they were in junior golf. When they were 18, a mutual friend set them up as partners in a Queensland mixed team event. They played 36 holes together that event and have been together ever since. Duane started caddying for Sarah Jane 13 years ago. He’s the only full-time caddie she has ever had, other than the odd times a friend has stepped in. They married nine years ago. “We’ve had a few ‘don’t-speak-to-me’ moments after rounds,” Sarah Jane said. “It’s obviously difficult sometimes, but when it’s good it’s worth every second.” Duane was asked the secret to making it work, “Basically, very much knowing she is the boss,” he said.last_img read more
