What crops have been planted – either they come up or they don’t, and what is up doesn’t look very good.”“A lot of it hasn’t been planted yet at all,” said David Moore, a farmer in the southeast corner of Adams County. “Some that is planted in the ground – that seed is probably rotting. I see fields that I know have been planted, and nothing’s up that should have been already.”The overcast weather has played a role in stunting the development of growing crops, too.“If we don’t get the heat, then it does not emerge correctly, and it doesn’t grow properly when it is up. Just like we need Vitamin D from the sun, these crops need heat from the sun”, said Roger Rhomenus. Most of his land lies between West Union and Ohio Brush Creek, east to west.“A bunch of it is ridgeland,” said Rhomenus, “ But some of it is bottomland. The creek went in twice last week on crops that I had just planted. I’d say we’ll lose – as of today – three or four acres.”These conditions have also made it difficult for farmers to harvest their hay, which is typically baled, stored away, and fed to livestock such as cattle. Luckily, the cattle can get by on pasture.“They’ve got pasture, but it’s hard to get hay,” said Rhomenus. “We’ve got a total of 63 round bales and no square bales – and that is not what I had in my mind. What I had in mind was a thousand round bales and two or three thousand square bales done by now.”“It’s disappointing to have a real nice crop of hay, and then not be able to harvest it when you want to,” Rhomenus continued. “Weeds get in it, and the quality of it goes down.”“We have cattle,” said Moore, “They seem to be doing okay. They don’t realize we haven’t got all of the hay made. If they knew we didn’t have it made, they’d probably be a little bit worried, but the way it is, the grass seems to be growing well, and they’ve got plenty to eat.” Powered By 10 Sec Best Carrot Cake Ever NextStay Best Carrot Cake EverNOW PLAYINGMama’s Deviled EggsNOW PLAYING5 Easy and Delicious Crock Pot Meatball Appetizer RecipesNOW PLAYINGCream Cheese Cake Mix CookiesNOW PLAYINGHomemade Caramel SauceNOW PLAYINGApple Pie BitesNOW PLAYINGApple Pie Bites With Caramel SauceNOW PLAYINGOld Fashioned Soft and Buttery Yeast RollsNOW PLAYINGHawaiian Roll Ham SlidersNOW PLAYINGHow to Slice & Mince Vegetables Like a ProNOW PLAYINGPumpkin Cream Cheese BarsNOW PLAYINGHow to Knead DoughNOW PLAYINGSlow Cooker/Crock Pot HintsNOW PLAYINGHow to Use a Meat ThermometerNOW PLAYINGHow to Quarter a ChickenNOW PLAYINGHow to Clean Garbage DisposalsNOW PLAYINGHow to Clean Stainless Steel SinksNOW PLAYINGHow to Melt and Soften ButterNOW PLAYINGHow to Cook Scrambled EggsNOW PLAYINGHow to Peel Hard Boiled EggsNOW PLAYINGHow to Chill a Drink in 2 MinutesNOW PLAYINGHow to Chop an Onion PerfectlyNOW PLAYINGPerfect Bacon Every TimeNOW PLAYINGSweet Alabama PecanbreadNOW PLAYINGParmesan Baked Pork ChopsNOW PLAYING Arrow Left #1 Icon Created with Sketch.

As a result:The mandated No-Contact period has been extended through this date (May 1). This is to assist with the Governor’s ‘stay at home’ order, to prohibit coaches from privately meeting with student-athletes AND to put all schools on an equal level relative to future competitive opportunities.It should be noted that the No-Contact Regulation was never intended to discourage or prohibit electronic communication with student-athletes. For the mental well-being of student-athletes, it is actually encouraged but is NOT intended for coaches to encourage any form of group gatherings or instruction.No practices or competitions may occur through this date (May 1).Since other events and activities are not permitted by the current Governor’s orders, we collectively believe we can continue looking at abbreviated schedules for spring sports. While cancellation remains on the table with all other options, there are many factors that enter into possibilities. Availability of venues for any events, Dept. of Health guidelines and Governor’s orders are all part of the equation. Under no circumstances will we compromise the safety of student-athletes, coaches, officials, game workers or fans. Everyone in the schools is aware of the extremely fluid situation and we will continue to update you as things change.Simply so we are prepared, we have begun looking at:Off-Season Regulations. In the event activities are permitted to begin in June or July, we are looking at adjusting off-season regulations to expedite a return to school-based athletic programs.Fall Sport Issues. Again, I feel it is incumbent for our staff to look at every ‘what if’ and be prepared. In a worst-case scenario, if events/practices/training are shut down during or through the summer, the reality exists that many of the thousands of student-athletes may lack any high-level physical training. We need to look at what serves our student-athletes best relative to acclimatization periods. I want to stress that we are PLANNING for worst-case scenarios by identifying all the challenges we could potentially face.last_img read more

Top Searches Top Searches North Adams SoccerDakotaUnsung Hero 10-21-2020 By Austin Rust-During this novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, troopers of the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) have adapted to a new set of guidelines set for law enforcement. These guidelines, set by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and Ohio Department of Health (ODH) are now in place to protect OSHP personnel, their families, and Ohio’s motorists from COVID-19.According to OSHP Public Relations Officer Trooper Sheldon Goodrum, MPA: “The CDC and ODH have put out guidelines for law enforcement – (these are) certain things we can do to make sure we’re maintaining proper hygiene, disinfecting certain areas, etc. Patrol Posts are giving the troopers disposable gloves to use while working. Some posts are giving out face masks, as well.”“We have been encouraged to stay off-post (as much as possible),” Trooper Goodrum continued. “Typically, troopers return to their posts at the beginning and end of their shifts, (but) we have been encouraged to start finishing cases at the computers in our patrol cars if we can. It’s a good system, because not only are we practicing that social distancing – keeping ourselves safe – but it also keeps us visible out there in the public. We know that Ohioans and motorists want to see us; they want to see us slowing down cars and doing our jobs. If we were all here at the post because we didn’t want to be out there exposing ourselves (to COVID-19), then we wouldn’t be visible – people wouldn’t see us. This system we’re using is two-fold: we’re staying safe, staying visible.”At OSHP posts, which remain open to the public, administrators have been directed to regularly disinfect computer monitors, keyboards, and mice, as well as phones, door handles, and rooms in regular use, such as the dispatch center. Services offered to the public have not been impacted.“We’re disinfecting as much as we can to stay ahead of this,” Trooper Goodrum explained. He noted that a required yearly in-service for OSHP troopers covering changes to policy had been temporarily postponed, and mock crashes scheduled at schools (now closed) were cancelled.So far, there have been no known cases of COVID-19 among the OSHP, said Trooper Goodrum. “We’re encouraging troopers, dispatchers, and our professional staff – if they’re sick, or feel like there might be something going on – to use the time off they’ve accrued to stay at home, find out what’s going on, take some medicine, and then come back to work when they feel well again.”Moving forward, Trooper Goodrum explained that it was OSHP standard procedure (even before the COVID-19 outbreak) to disinfect patrol cars after transporting anyone in the back seat. “First, let me explain that not everyone who goes into our back seat is a prisoner, or has done something wrong,” he began. “When I handle a crash or a disabled vehicle on the road, sometimes the safest place for a person to be is the next exit, a gas station, or a rest area. After anyone – whether it is a prisoner we’re taking to jail or someone we’re relaying to a safer place – goes into that back seat, we disinfect and sanitize the patrol car. Our patrol cars are also cleaned at the end of each shift.”“What we’re doing – our core mission – has not changed,” said Trooper Goodrum. “We are still subject to call. We’re handling crashes, stopping cars, looking for criminal activity and impaired driving. We’re still doing everything that we were doing before the coronavirus. That mission is still our mission, and we have not slowed down, but we are tweaking the ways we do things.”Trooper Goodrum explained that whereas before, he might have asked the driver of a stopped car to hand him their license, registration, and proof of insurance, some troopers are now encouraged to ask motorists to hold up their information so that it can be copied down. “So we have tweaked how we do things a little bit to follow the new guidelines,” Trooper Goodrum added, “but our mission has stayed the same, and it has not significantly slowed us in the commitment we have to the safety of motorists and Ohioans. We’re not letting the coronavirus pandemic change that.”“As a law enforcement officer, there’s a certain level of stress every day just given what we do,” said Trooper Goodrum, “especially with never knowing what we’re being exposed to when we search vehicles, or never knowing what’s going to go on with each stop that we make, but I think that this coronavirus has made us a little more cautious. Some troopers, for example – they would go home, take their uniform off, and just hang it in a closet with other clothes. But now, uniforms have to be kept separate – you don’t want to bring what you picked up out working into the home where it could affect your kids, wife, or husband. Is there a little bit more stress? Yes, because we are trying to be more cautious. We’re always thinking of worst case scenarios. But is (that stress) so significant that it’s seriously impacting the work that we do? No, I don’t think it is.”“Anytime that there’s an increased risk to our troopers, professional staff, and dispatchers, who may be exposed to something they’re not normally facing, we put out guidelines to combat it,” said Trooper Goodrum. “As these things happen, the OSHP and the Ohio Department of Public Safety stay ahead of it. We find what works best, and we’re always refining operations to keep people safe – not only our own people, but also the Ohioans we interact with every day.”“We are out in force like we always have been,” Trooper Goodrum concluded, adding: “If you crash or witness a crash, if your vehicle’s disabled, or if there’s something in the roadway, dial #677, hit send, and it will connect you to the nearest OSHP Post. Speak with a dispatcher – the dispatcher will get some information from you, and they will send a trooper to your location or the location of a reported crash.” Goodrum also recommended use of the Safer Ohio app.On a final note, Trooper Goodrum explained that with Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) offices now closed, the OSHP will not be taking enforcement action on individuals with license plates which expired as of the close of business March 18. last_img read more

However, Stein notes, “Realistically, data center developers need not request so much power, because in the near future, electronic equipment will be far more efficient than it is today. In fact, there is already more efficient equipment trickling into the market.” In the past year, Stein says, Internet servers have come on the market that allow data center operators to pack in eight times as many servers as they are ordinarily able to accommodate, but without pushing up their electric bills. BOULDER, Colo., Jan. 18, 2002 — Electric utilities are struggling to provide service to new power-hungry electronic data centers, which can consume eight to 50 times more electricity per square foot than typical commercial buildings, a new report shows. In many cases, utilities are reluctant to provide the infrastructure required to supply such huge amounts of power, a number of planned data facilities to develop their own power sources, according to the reports created by energy research firm Platts. For example, a 344,000-square-foot data center under construction in Washington State, when complete, will be capable of drawing up to 105 MW — enough power to support more than 100,000 households.

Chiaravalloti camp calls Kopko ‘Mr. New York City’ over car license…

first_img These are the tactics of people with no ideas. Very sad to see my party has come to this. This is what comes of single party control. No longer any inducement to be better, just dig in and do nothing. This is truly pathetic. Chiaravalloti camp calls Kopko ‘Mr. New York City’ over car license plate The campaign of District 31 Republican Assembly nominee Nick Chiaravalloti is taking a rare offensive stance in this election, referring to Republican counterpart Matthew Kopko as “Mr. New York City” over his car’s license plate. Kopko was dismissive of the claim.By John Heinis/Hudson County ViewIn a contentious matchup between a Democrat and Republican, a rare sight in Hudson County, Kopko has been throwing punches in bunches since the primary ended, recently accusing Chiaravalloti of practicing law without a license.Apparently, he’s done enough to make Chiaravalloti go on the attack, as a supporter of the Democratic candidate sent Hudson County View a text message today pointing out that Kopko’s car has New York license plates.Kopko essentially said there’s nothing to see here, explaining why the campaign tactic was “desperate.”“Talk about a desperate campaign. The Hudson County Democratic Organization must be really desperate if this is all they got. My wife and I both work in New York City and leased this car from Fiat in Manhattan and part of the deal is we get $99 per month parking in New York City. Where else can you get a deal like that?,” he asked.“And that’s exactly the kind of fiscal responsibility you can expect from me in Trenton. Our car is garaged in New York during the day, where we both work, and at night it sits right here, with me, in my garage, in Bayonne. Hundreds of thousands of us not ripping off and profiting off our own community actually travel across state lines each day to make a living.”A source close to Chiaravalloti’s campaign chimed in, adding that: “This points to the great internal contradiction of Mr. Kopko: he wants to be Mr. Bayonne, but he’s really Mr. New York City,” declining to comment further.Chiaravalloti and Angela McKnight, the HCDO-endorsed candidates, go head-to-head with Kopko and Herminio Mendoza in the November 3 general election.

RomanHoliday You do realize that the 2019 elections are almost 2 years from now. The only people talking about those elections are Ravi, you and the rest of his small group of insiders. The rest of Hoboken is worried about getting things done right in Hoboken now and will worry about the 2019 elections in September 2019 when campaigning begins.

Did anyone get the Bhalla-Cammarano text messages on this?

Unfortunately, requests to Bhalla and the Office of the Mayor have been regularly unanswered. Bhalla’s constituents have been clamoring for this information for days. Your tangential commentary, distracts and digresses from the ethical questions at hand – which a proactive Mayor keen on providing clear communications – would have provided prior to both swearing in and signing a contract.

Poor Hoboken, welcome back to the new Old Guard back room politics (and worse). The Hoboken City Council passed a resolution urging Mayor Ravi Bhalla to disclose all the details of his new of counsel position at a politically connected law firm.[fve]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DQ72zadTnM&feature=youtu.be[/fve]The resolution, which was an add-on item, asks for the disclosure of any financial and political incentives associated with the mayor’s job at the law firm Lavery, Selvaggi, Abromitis & Cohen, P.C., as well as questioning how any potential conflicts of interest would be handled.2nd Ward Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher gave a brief explanation of why the council introduced this measure.“I think anyone whose ever worked with a large law firm and potentially worked with someone of the title ‘of counsel’ … you may have different views as to what of counsel could be,” she said.” … The mayor of Hoboken has historically been [a] full-time position, is compensated for a full-time position, I think members of the public would generally expect the mayor to be 24/7 for Hoboken and we’re not expecting [him] to have a side gig.”Hudson County View reported Bhalla’s new position over the weekend, a move which drew the ire of the majority of the council.Councilman-at-Large James Doyle, who sought re-election with Bhalla in November, wanted to know what warranted making this matter an emergency addition to the agenda.“Do our council minutes, our bylaws, allow for 5 p.m. resolutions to be just thrown on the agenda, unless it’s an emergency?,” Doyle asked.“Yes,” Council President Ruben Ramos said to some laughter from the crowd.“Number 3, have you asked the mayor these questions, rather than assuming that he won’t give you the answer and you need to pass a resolution asking questions?,” Doyle continued.“Why have you not asked the mayor these questions instead of grandstanding in this matter?”“The same way the mayor didn’t inform us of his new employment, besides Facebook,” Ramos quipped back.Doyle further stated that under the Faulkner Act, the council is supposed to issue a subpoena, not a resolution, to question a public official – though no one on the council backed up that notion.1st Ward Councilman Mike DeFusco, Bhalla’s most definitive adversary on the council, further defended the local legislative action.“As we’re approving political contracts on this agenda, legal contracts that people want to know that we’re vetting the vendors the right way, making sure that there’s no funny business going on,” DeFusco said.“It is this council’s absolute due right to ask these 26 questions and that’s what we’re doing: we’re doing nothing more than asking the mayor what the role is.”Ramos then boldly exclaimed that Bhalla is the first mayor in the history of the city to take an outside job.Furthermore, 5th Ward Councilman Peter Cunningham said the timing of the announcement was “a little strange.”3rd Ward Councilman Mike Russo chimed in that he’d like answers as well, but expressed disappointment that this situation has been “politicized.”“Every single one of these concerns are the same concerns I have. What is he doing in that firm? How is he handling that? What does that mean for the taxpayers in the City of Hoboken? What does that mean for this body?,” Russo began.“All those same questions, I have the same exact concerns. But what my major concern here is tonight is how this is being politicized.”6th Ward Councilwoman Jen Giattino added that Bhalla’s new gig is no better or different than when he worked at Florio, Perucci, Steinhardt and Fader.The council ultimately approved the resolution by a vote of 7-1(1), with Doyle voting no and Councilwoman-at-Large Emily Jabbour, another recent Bhalla running mate, abstaining.In response to the council’s action, city spokesman Juan Melli simply said that the mayor “will review the Council resolution and respond accordingly.”A copy of the council’s letter to Bhalla can be read here.

The way the Council has handled this so far reeks of politics rather than true concern for the public interest. In fact, they seem more gleeful about being handed a political weapon than concerned for the public interest.A simple request that the mayor release his employment agreement would have sufficed. Zimmer was always blessed by the quality of her opposition. Ravi is doubly blessed – addition by subtraction. You’re far more valuable to Bhalla hating on him than you ever were to Zimmer kissing her ass. StanAndVJSittingInATree RomanHoliday February 22, 2018 3:28 pm at 3:28 pm scarystupid Councilman Doyle’s comments appeal to the politically and professionally naive. Aside from the ABA requirement one ethics for attorney council members, all Council members should have annual continuing ed requirements on government ethics – particularly on procurement and contracts.One Councilperson had the audacity to invoke the tangential argument of a man’s duty to bring in the family earnings, rather than to strongly advocate for constituents on the glaring issue which, of course, is ethics. lindalou February 23, 2018 4:21 pm at 4:21 pm scarystupid You talking about being a reasonable person is hysterical. 18 COMMENTS There is no Old Guard and Reform.
