Alcoa Asks Judge to Block Boonville Mining Ordinance

first_imgJANUARY 26TH, 2018  BRITNEY TAYLOR INDIANA Alcoa is asking a judge to prevent the City of Boonville from trying to enforce an ordinance that blocks mining activity outside city limits. This filing seeks a ruling regarding Boonville’s restriction on a legal business activity.An expansion at the Liberty Mine is needed to provide fuel for the Warrick Power Plant, which provides all utility services to Alcoa’s Warrick Operations.The expansion plan for Liberty Mine, which has received preliminary approval from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, is not located in Boonville’s city limits or any incorporated town or city in Warrick County.Alcoa and its mining contractor conducted discussions with Boonville officials and the representatives from Save Our Homes to addres feedback from the county residents who live outside the city and closest to the mine’s expansion area.Alcoa even offered to take actions beyond what is required by increasing the 300-foot buffer zone to 800 feet and installing additional seismic monitors.Alcoa agreed to describe those actions in writing and publicly announce them at a Boonville City Council meeting, but Boonville refused to rescind its ordinance or schedule a meeting to do so.Previous StoriesNegotiations Underway for Liberty Mine Expansion – January 2018Coal Mining Controversy In Warrick County – December 2017Britney TaylorWeb ProducerMore Posts – WebsiteFollow Me:TwitterFacebook FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

EVSC Purchases Property in McCutchanville

first_imgTonight, the EVSC Board of School Trustees approved the purchase of property in northern Vanderburgh County to prepare for the ongoing population growth in this area.  The 135.1 acre property currently serves as Eagle Valley Golf Course.“The Brinker family, who are long time supporters of our schools and the community, approached us with this opportunity,” said EVSC Superintendent David Smith. ”By purchasing this property, it will put us in a position to meet the demands of future growth in this area of Vanderburgh County.”Smith went on to say, “Our School Board had the vision to purchase property for a new school 20 years ago, which is the site of the new McCutchanville Elementary School. This Eagle Valley property is adjacent to our new McCutchanville Elementary School property, so it makes perfect sense to obtain this property for future needs.  Our Board understands their responsibility to prepare our school corporation to meet the demands of this popular residential area in the next decade.”The initial agreement is based on the property being purchased over a three-year time period. The total cost for the 135.1 acres is $3,377,500, including all structures. The cost breakdown is $25,000 per acre. The cost per acre is less that the amount the EVSC paid per acre when the land for the current North High School was purchased in 2008.While future details of the property development have not been decided, school officials are always looking ahead to meet the needs of schools nearing capacity.  The current North High/Jr. High School facility was built in 2012. The complex was intentionally designed to also function as a stand alone high school facility if necessary.  In that scenario, the new property would then be used as a site for a new middle school or junior high facility.Under this agreement, Eagle Valley Golf Course will continue to operate under the management and leadership of Dean and Dirk Brinker. The Brinkers are responsible for the maintenance of the entire property for the next three years. After that time period, the maintenance of the property will be reviewed and renewed on an annual basis.“The opportunity to come to an agreement with the EVSC is great for the community,” said Eagle Valley Golf Course President and Brinker’s Jewelers President Dean Brinker.  “This protects current homeowner property values in the area and makes Eagle Crossing East and West Subdivisions a premier area to raise a family. For the foreseeable future, it gives us an opportunity to continue our family passion of golf, which was started by my father, Roland Brinker”.Dirk Brinker, vice president of Eagle Valley Golf Course and vice president of Brinker’s Jewelers stated, “We are working on some unique opportunities for the current student athletes of EVSC golf programs.”  Dirk added, “It also allows the EVSC an opportunity and the flexibility to create a unique educational experience for the children in the school district.”“This purchase also ensures residents in the area that this property will not be used for retail development.” David Smith added, “I greatly appreciate the Brinker family’s longstanding support of  EVSC and I applaud our School Board for planning to meet the needs of our community when property is made available. If we pass on this opportunity now, it is unlikely a large property like this will be available at the current price in the future.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Press release: Grant to make Hull Minster a hub for city’s history, heritage and community

first_imgFurther new features will include an education and learning centre, disabled access ramps and accessible toilets, a modern electrical system, and a community garden providing homegrown fruit and vegetables for the café.The Vicar of Hull Minster, the Reverend Canon Dr Neal Barnes, said: This is very exciting as it means we will be able to deliver the final phase of our development project and much more. It’s a tribute to our success in raising £3.5m over the past four years from donations and trusts to rejuvenate the church and place it once again at the very centre of community life in Hull. But it’s vital to stress that these funds are strictly ring-fenced for capital projects. Not a single penny will go towards day-to-day running costs, which remain a major challenge. While this grant will support the Minster’s sustainability in the long term, we still need financial support from donors and well-wishers to help cover essential running costs and increased community support work. We also need people to contribute more when they visit, to close the gap between our day-to-day incomings and outgoings. The investment comes from a dedicated fund which is designed to protect historic features in areas near to major roads, helping them to be harmonious with their surroundings. The Highways England Environment Designated Fund will safeguard the Minster’s heritage for future generations and create a sustainable future for the church as a magnificent place of worship, focal point for the community and magnet for visitors.With work set to start this spring, the majestic Minster can now be restored, renovated and extended to fulfil its rich potential. The grant is linked to the proposed A63 Castle Street scheme, which passes just 100 metres from the church. This major project is designed to improve access between the Port of Hull and the national road network via the city centre.Highways England’s funding for the Minster allows for a number of major improvements, including a glass, bronze and stone extension which will house a visitor and heritage centre with exhibition spaces, a café and other new visitor facilities. The extension will lead into a “heritage corridor” within the church, creating a home for carefully-curated exhibits about the history of Hull and the central role the church has played in it.Highways England senior project manager James Leeming said: The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, said: Please visit the Highways England Designated Funds page for more information on the programme.General enquiriesMembers of the public should contact the Highways England customer contact centre on 0300 123 5000.Media enquiriesJournalists should contact the Highways England press office on 0844 693 1448 and use the menu to speak to the most appropriate press officer. This is wonderful news for the Minster and the city of Hull. It will enable us to fulfil the Minster’s potential to be a hub for visitors and tourists to the historic Old Town. Maintaining a heritage asset is very expensive and draws resources away from the core work of the church, so this grant is particularly useful in sustaining our mission to be a positive force and a place of care, compassion and support. It means we can now put more of our own resources into our outreach work, our education programmes and our support for the most isolated and vulnerable members of our community. The funds have been awarded to the Hull Minster Development Trust, which has led the transformation of the Minster over recent years to enable it to host flexible and inclusive forms of worship and a wide range of social, cultural and community events.Hull Minster Development Trust Vice Chair Stephen Martin said: It is a real pleasure to support an iconic venue like Hull Minster as part of our important work in the city. Our Designated Funds programme empowers us to invest in projects beyond our traditional schemes. The grant for Hull Minster will transform the church in the short term and build a brighter future in the long term. It was my privilege and joy to join the people of Hull for the re-designation of Holy Trinity Church as Hull Minster in 2017. In doing so, it was my prayer that Hull Minster was to be a place of blessing, witness and prayer for the city of Hull and all humankind. Please join me in praise and thanksgiving to God for this Highways England grant which represents further growth in the partnership between Hull Minster and the local community it serves.last_img read more

Top football recruit James dies in Florida

first_imgJames, a 6-foot-6, 290-pound offensive tackle, was set to enroll in the fall as Kelly’s first major recruit at Notre Dame. The All-American chose the Irish on National Signing Day over Ohio State and Cincinnati. Police said James, 17, was “drunk” at the time of the fall, which occurred around 6:30 p.m. Friday at the Days Inn Motel in Panama City Beach. An autopsy showed James died of brain injuries. He was vacationing with six parents and 40 fellow students from St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, police said. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Matt James in this most trying of times,” Kelly said in a statement Saturday. “On a personal level, I got to know Matt quite well over the past few years, and he was a wonderful young man from a great family. Matt was an extremely talented person who was very bright and possessed a great dry sense of humor. He could not wait to join the Notre Dame family.” “We are united in our grief over Matt,” St. Xavier president Fr. Tim Howe said in the release. “Our community is strong, and I know that the strength we receive from our faith in Jesus’ resurrection will help us get through this difficult time. Our love and prayers are for Matt and his family as we accompany them in the coming days of shared mourning.” Irish football coach Brian Kelly said his program was “in a state of disbelief and incredible sadness” following the tragic death of top recruit Matt James, who fell from a fifth-floor hotel balcony and died while on Spring Break in Panama City Beach, Fla., on Friday. Visitation will be held at St. Xavier High School on Friday from 4 to 8 p.m., and a funeral mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Saturday at St. Xavier Church in downtown Cincinnati, according to a Tuesday press release from the high school. “We would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support during this tragic time, particularly the family at St. X,” James’ parents, Jerry and Peggy, said in a statement Saturday. “Matt was a very special young man, and it is gratifying to us that you all could see that as well. We are touched by this outpouring of love.” James’ high school quarterback, Luke Massa, is an Irish commit and was also on the Spring Break trip, according to the AP. “This is just such a tragedy because he was just a wonderful, wonderful kid,” Massa’s mother, Mary, told the AP. “It’s heartbreaking.”last_img read more

Huge Police Sweep in Rio Aims at Drug Traffickers

first_imgBy Dialogo April 22, 2011 Brazilian police swept through Rio de Janeiro’s largest slum in a crackdown on drug-related crime, arresting 11 people and seizing an estimated three tons of marijuana, officials said. With a helicopter hovering overhead, 200 members of the country’s Civil Police force swarmed into the slum, known as Rocinha. But the police apparently failed to find their main target, Antonio Francisco Bonfim Lopes, 34, alias “Nem.” Since October, 2010, authorities have offered a reward of around $2,800 for information leading to Nem’s arrest. The raid was part of series of efforts which began in 2008 intended to clamp down on the deadly violence in Rio’s slums, known as favelas, ahead of the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics, both of which will be held in Brazil. Around a third of Rio de Janerio’s population of six million live in slums in and around the city. So far, police operations have been organized in more than 20 favelas, with drug organizations expelled. Late last year, officials declared victory after 2,600 paratroopers, marines and elite police, backed up with helicopters and armored personnel carriers, led a pre-dawn assault on the Vila Cruzeiro and Complexo do Alemao favelas that ended with 37 suspected wrongdoers killed, a score of arrests and the seizure of more than 500 weapons. Police said that no shots had been fired when they entered Rocinha, a favela of 120,000 people in the south of Rio. They carried 30 warrants, most aimed at money laundering charges by members of the Nem family.last_img read more

Colombian military industry markets weapons and technology on international stage

first_img The CIAC performs the maintenance and repair of highly complex aircraft. The company is also modernizing the EMB 312 T27 Tucano aircraft used by the Colombian Air Force (FAC). As part of the modernization program, the Tucano aircraft will be fitted with new wings and landing gear, as well as a new Rockwell Collins navigation and communications system. In late 2013, Embraer Defense & Security, a Brazilian company, agreed to certify CIAC to become the only company able to modernize Tucano aircraft, except those belonging to the Brazilian Air Force. The weapons and technological innovations developed by the military industry are important to Colombia’s national defense, Sahid Garnica explained. “Colombia realized that to develop the power of the state in traditional terms, a sustained military industry is required,” Sahid Garnica said. “Defense industry technology is important in the fight against crime. Intelligence work is the most powerful weapon that the Armed Forces has to dismantle the structures of transnational organized crime.” The defense industry can make a difference in the field of operations by producing weapons and technology which provide security forces with a strategic advantage, Defense Minister Juan Carlos Pinzón said in November 2013, at the inauguration of the First Meeting of the Defense Industry. In 2013, the Colombian military industry contributed to the success of part of the security initiative knowna as “Sword of Honor,” which involved Colombia’s four naval forces and the Joint Task Force against Drug Trafficking, ‘Poseidón’, according to El Tiempo. The Colombian Navy captured 417 alleged drug traffickers, including 154 suspected gang members, authorities said. Naval forces also seized 64 tons of cocaine, which were worth an estimated $16 billion (USD). International market As its military industry sells more goods and services on the international market, Colombia should forge “broad alliances” when it comes to marketing products overseas, Pérez Mejía said. Conducting research to develop new technology and other products is very expensive for military industry companies, Sahid Garnica said. Nonetheless, Colombia has the ability to export quality military technology at affordable prices, and can also provide insight and training from troops who have experience in “asymmetrical fighting” against a guerrilla organization, Sahid Garnica said. “Colombia has managed to mix doctrine and practice,” the security analyst said. Exponential growth Colombia’s security forces have grown dramatically during the last decade. In 2001, the country had 300,000 National Police agents and military troops. By 2012, the number of National Police agents and military troops had grown to 450,000, according to published reports. So too as the country’s military industry, which has developed and produced tactical and strategic weapons for the military’s use against the FARC and transnational criminal organizations, such as the National Liberation Army (ELN), the Urabenos, and the Rastrojos. These groups engage in drug trafficking, kidnapping, extortion, and other criminal enterprises. Colombian companies drive innovation The CIAC is also producing the T-90 Calima aircraft, which officials will use to strengthen the capabilities of the Flight Training Group (GRUEV) of the Colombian Air Force. The Colombian government is studying the possibility of building a plant to produce ammonium nitrate explosives because the infrastructure development programs in Colombia in the next few years will focus on the construction of roads, railways, and tunnels,” Gen. Pérez Mejía said. The Colombian defense industry collaborates with South Korea in the construction of oceanic patrol vessels and with Israel in the manufacture of parts for the Galil rifle. In addition to producing weapons and technology to improve security, some military industry companies also help countries cooperate in the battle against organized crime. For instance, COTECMAR in recent years developed, built and exported four LPR-40 MKII river patrol boats to Brazil. Brazil and Colombia worked together to develop and design the patrol boat for use in the Amazon River. Naval officials from both countries have been working on the initiative since 2011. Among the Colombian countries which are developing innovations in technology related to security are INDUMIL (Military Industry of Colombia), COTECMAR (Science and Technology Corporation for the Development of the Naval, Maritime, and Fluvial Industry), CODALTEC (High Technology Corporation), and CIAC (Colombian Aerospace Industry Corporation). Some of the companies are well-known worldwide. For example, military industry analysts consider INDUMIL to be a cutting edge technology company, with more than 57 years of experience in the production and sale of ammunition, explosives, and other weapons. The company is known for developing the assault rifles Galil SAR and Galil AR, the production of smart bombs for the Colombian Air Force, and the maintenance of the Army’s infantry vehicles. It also developed the Colombian Cordova handgun. Paraguay, Chile, Peru, and Ecuador are among the first countries to purchase the semi-automatic handgun. Naval cooperation By Dialogo January 25, 2014 Maintenance of Air Force aircraft In December 2013, COTECMAR delivered an Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) to the Armed Forces of Colombia. The company has a contract to eventually deliver six OPVs to the Armed Forces. The OPV is also known as “7 de Agosto.” Is designed to operate in collaboration with helicopters and high-speed interceptor boats. In addition to security tasks, the OPV can also help officials provide humanitarian assistance during natural disasters, and can be used in search and rescue operations. Colombia’s military industry is steadily building its capacity to develop and produce vessels, Sahid Garnica said. “In ten years, Colombia will be able to build a strategic fleet, frigates,” said Sahid Garnica. Production and modernization Colombia’s military equipment industry, which generated sales of $450 million (USD) in 2013, is seeking to increase international sales by aggressively marketing products and services which can help governments and private business battle organized crime groups. Colombian military products and services are of high quality and are in demand throughout the world, said Gen. José Javier Pérez Mejía, vice minister of the Social and Business Defense Group (GSED), told the Colombian news agency Innova in an article published on Dec. 30, 2013. The GSED is part of the Defense Ministry. The Colombian firm is responsible for directing and guiding the corporate policy of 19 companies serving the defense industry. “The future of the Colombian military industry is promising. We believe that in the coming years we could be in the big leagues during times of peace, not war,” General José Javier Pérez Mejía, Vice Minister of the Social and Business Defense Group (GSED), on December 30 to the news agency, Colombia Innova. The government is engaged in peace talks in Havana with representatives from the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). The FARC has fought the government for 50 years. A peace agreement would create more opportunities for the defense industry to focus on research and innovation, rather than producing weapons and ammunition needed by the Armed Forces to fight the FARC, Pérez Mejía said. In addition to providing equipment needed to battle the FARC, the military industry in recent years has worked hard to develop new products and technology to fight not just the guerrilla group, but other transnational criminal organizations, according to Germán Sahid Garnica, a security analyst at El Rosario University in Bogota. “The military industry is diversifying its portfolio of services and equipment that generate a strategic advantage against various criminal threats,” Sahid Garnica said. The ‘7 de Agosto’ Excellent investigation on arms trafficking A big hug to all the soldiers of our glorious Colombian army that live on the battlefield. Excellent information; congratulations for this important data. Foreseeing that within 10 years Colombia will have the technological capacity to produce frigates is very realistic and down to earth. What products are expected in 10 years for the FARCs and the ARMY? When will we produce an apc with 50-caliber machine gun, a grenade thrower and posts for missiles, and that can carry 8 marines or soldiers, but one that is ours. Anyone can assemble it and buy a tandem chassis and a 450 caterpillar engine and a box with five gears and you provide the armor. We can do this very well in Colombia. This is extraordinary, late but it started. This should have been done years ago. The country or the government have missed the opportunity to manufacture their own fighter aircraft, I understand that South Korea was interested in producing them in Colombia, but the Colombian government said no. Well, that opportunity was wasted, nothing is being said about the btr 80 manufactured in Colombia. I think you refer to fac or fuerza aerea colombiana , not farc Long live our Republic’s defense forces Defense industry helps provide security last_img read more

Keep calm and follow the rules

first_imgIt has been a few years since I practiced law formally. I use my law degree, however, on a daily basis.There’s a great deal of misinformation about the legal system, and people will use that confusion to take advantage of others.“I’ll sue you!”“If you do this, you won’t be sued.”“Do this, or you’ll hear from my lawyer!”The threat of some unknown legal action can be intimidating. Having gone through law school, though, I gained a better sense of when true legal risks were present. Also, I learned that few issues were black and white. Most were a balancing act of risk management.And so it is for credit union compliance. I think every credit union executive would benefit from a compliance crash course at some point in their career.There are rules that govern virtually every aspect of our business. The more you understand those rules, the better you’ll be at playing the game.Third parties will often tell you to do this or that because of a law or regulation. Knowing the rules puts you in the driver’s seat.It isn’t hard to find many compliance answers, if you know where to look. Even understanding how the rules are organized is a huge help.Compliance scares many. Use this to your advantage. Lean into the area where many shy away.There are a number of places you can get a crash course in compliance – NAFCU certainly isn’t the only provider. But I do hope you’ll consider 2016 the year to master the rules. I’ve spoken to a number of credit union leaders who have, and I have yet to find one who wasn’t happy after they took the plunge. 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Anthony Demangone Anthony Demangone is executive vice president and chief operating officer at the National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU).
