Juneau Access Road, PFD on Haines and Skagway minds leading up to Walker visit

first_imgSoutheast | State GovernmentJuneau Access Road, PFD on Haines and Skagway minds leading up to Walker visitOctober 11, 2016 by Emily Files, KHNS-Haines Share:This week, Haines and Skagway residents will have the chance to tell Alaska Gov. Bill Walker their thoughts on the Juneau Access Road and state budget situation.Walker is making brief stops in each community Friday.His staff said it’s part of a slate of visits around the state to talk to communities about the Alaska’s fiscal outlook. But Walker will also hear from residents in this area about the Juneau Access Project.Walker is venturing to two of the three communities that would be most impacted by the potential road.The visits come just weeks after news that Walker is weighing a decision on Juneau Access.When he first came to office, Walker put off a decision on the project, saying state budget concerns took precedence.Haines Chamber of Commerce Director Debra Schnabel said she reached out to Walker’s office when the road resurfaced in the news.“The Chamber was notified that Gov. Walker was rethinking the Juneau Access issue. And I emailed the governor’s office asking if that was true, and if so, we’d like to have a meeting,” Schnabel said. “‘We’ meaning the Chamber and community of Haines.”Schnabel said this week’s meeting originated from that request. Even though the Juneau Access Road is back on people’s minds, she doesn’t see it as a “single-issue meeting.”“I think of it more as come on over to our house and we’re going to tell you a few things that are on our mind, you tell us what’s on your mind, and we’ll talk about some stuff.”But Schnabel says Chamber representatives met with Haines Mayor Jan Hill to come up with an official position to relay to the governor.That position will be printed on buttons Schnabel and others plan to wear to Friday’s gathering. It is “Ferry Reform First.”“So we’re saying let’s give ferry reform a chance, and then let’s talk about an access road.”Walker will sit in on joint chamber of commerce/borough assembly meetings in Haines and Skagway.The format for the Haines meeting will include a presentation from Mayor Hill, then remarks from Walker. After that, the floor will be open for a question and answer session, moderated by Chamber Board President Kyle Gray.In Skagway, Chamber of Commerce Board President Jackie Schaefer said the Access Project may come up, but personally, she says, the PFD is more on her mind.“People in Alaska use that PFD money to pay their winter bills — heating oil, clothing, food. It takes a lot to live here,” Schaefer said. “And we don’t want to move anywhere else. But they use that money in good conscience and use it to survive the winters here.”PFD funds arrived in Alaskans’ bank accounts and mailboxes this month.They were just over $1,000 per person, down from the original amount planned to be distributed because Walker vetoed half of dividend checks in June in an effort to preserve the permanent fund in light of the state budget crisis.Alaska pollster Ivan Moore found that since that move, Walker’s popularity in the state has taken a hit.In the Alaska Survey Research poll, 35 percent of respondents had a positive view of Walker, down from 43 percent in June. The number of respondents who had a negative view of Walker spiked from 23 percent in June to 35 percent in September.The Haines meeting is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Friday at the Chilkat Center. At 3:45 p.m., the Skagway meeting will take place in assembly chambers.The Friday meetings with Walker are open to the public.Share this story:last_img read more

He said the test results from Whittier Seafood were immediately communicated to the city.“We are open, our facilities, you know, the harbor facilities are open. But we’re being extremely careful. And we have been all along, because we’re just we’re so isolated,” he said.According to the company’s coronavirus safety plan it submitted to the state, new employees are quarantined for 14 days and tested on arrival.“Housing assignments and mealtime assignments will be designed to internally quarantine newly arrived employees within the greater Whittier Seafood community. Housing assignments, mealtime assignments, Social Distancing, and mandatory PPE guidelines must be strictly complied with to maintain the efficacy of the internal working quarantine model. Failure to strictly comply with these requirements will result in immediate termination of employment,” reads the plan.Hunt said he was not aware of any violation of the company’s policy.In a press release, the state Department of Health and Social Services wrote that the workers did not interact with the public. “After arriving in Whittier, the workers were quarantined, screened daily and tested,” read the release.The state health department on Thursday reported 26 new coronavirus cases, 18 of which were among nonresidents. All but one of those were seafood workers.Share this story:last_img read more

Gov’t Allocates $140 Million to Citizen Security Project

first_imgGov’t Allocates $140 Million to Citizen Security Project UncategorizedApril 19, 2006 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Improving Governance Through Citizen Security and Participation project has been allocated $140 million in the 2006/07 Estimates of Expenditure, now before the House of Representatives, to assist the government to address the challenges of democracy and good governance.The project, which is being implemented by the Ministry of National Security, will seek to build on programmes under the previous strategy by strengthening civil society; improve community police relations (replicating the Grant’s Pen model in other similar communities); and strengthen the rule of law, including targeting the crises of crime and poverty in inner-city communities.Started in October 2005, the project is slated to end in September 2009 and has as its targets, the replication of the community policing model at Grant’s Pen in other crime-plagued communities to include training of Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) officers and community residents; promotion of community-based activities to enhance positive interaction between police and citizens, such as clean-up days and sporting competitions; establishment of model community policing service facilities and capacity building support for community based-organizations including the establishment of Community Policy Management Committees (CPMC).Other targets envisaged include youth focused activities such as mentorship and summer camps; domestic violence reduction activities and community consensus building activities.Achievements up to March of this year include the training of officers of the Grant’s Pen Police station on the new policy and procedure manual that has been completed and is being printed; and the training of appropriate personnel in investigative and forensic techniques and crime analysis. Members of the CPMC were also trained on community crime prevention and community residents, while pastors from the ministers fraternal and police officers were also trained on collaborative problem solving.Other achievements to date include mentorship training for 40 officers by the University of the West Indies (UWI); development of case management software; installation and handing over to the JCF national computer centre at Grant’s Pen; completion of the JCF netball competition for young women in Grant’s Pen and the initiation of a JCF ‘Comfort Zone’ Saturday mentoring programme by police assigned to the Grant’s Pen station with children at risk from New Day and Shortwood schools.Anticipated physical targets for this fiscal year should see procurement of an ambulance for the police centre in Grant’s Pen; establishment of homework, conflict resolution and peace centres; and commencement of activities for additional community policing facilities in selected communities.The Improving Governance Through Citizen Security and Participation project is funded by the Jamaican government and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

New satellite to continue 40 years of solar measurements

first_imgTSIS-2 joins a long line of NASA missions that have kept similar records since 1978. Their data have helped scientists to better understand everything from the potential threats that solar storms pose to human society to changing climate here on Earth. “That record has been, essentially, unbroken for the last four decades,” said Erik Richard, a research scientist at LASP who will lead the development of the instruments. “Moving forward, we want those measurements to be more accurate.”LASP will receive $18 million to build the new sensors, dubbed the Total Irradiance Monitor (TIM) and Spectral Irradiance Monitor (SIM). Richard and his colleagues will also operate those instruments from the CU Boulder campus when TSIS-2 launches in 2023. For now, the team is proud to be a part of that legacy of eyes on the sun. “LASP really is the center for accurate solar irradiance measurements,” Richard said.11-year cyclesHumanity’s home star, he added, is more finicky than many people on the ground might think. Researchers going back to Galileo have noted that its activity tends to peak, then dip, then peak again about once every 11 years.“The solar maximum is defined by lots of sunspots, lots of flares,” Richard said. “In between those events, which is where we are right now, is called the solar minimum, the doldrums of the sun.”TSIS-2, like its predecessors, will record the sun’s energy output during both those violent phases and the doldrums that follow.It’s critical information. The sun’s ups and downs, Richard said, can have big impacts on life on the ground—solar flares ejected during active phases can, potentially, shut down electrical grids in cities around the world. Solar activity could also shift Earth’s climate in small but still measurable ways.“Scientists who study climate change need to have accurate measurements of the sun’s output so that they can use them to make the next generation of climate models,” Richard said.Flying freeWhich means that getting those measurements right is key for TSIS-2.LASP previously designed identical versions of the TIM and SIM instruments to fly on TSIS-1, which launched in 2017. That instrument suite, however, sits on the hull of the International Space Station—“it’s like putting your instruments on top of a hotel,” Richard said. TSIS-2, in contrast, will orbit Earth all on its own, said David Gathright, the mission’s payload project manager at LASP. “As a free-flying mission, we’re going to be able to collect a lot more data,” he said. NASA has not yet selected who will build the actual TSIS-2 spacecraft, which will wind up being about the size of a washing machine. But Brian Boyle, an engineer at LASP who worked on TSIS-1, said that the funding from NASA should create a lot of work for engineers in Colorado—and at a time when the state needs it the most.“This is important for not only us here at LASP and the university, but the community, as well,” Boyle said. Published: April 21, 2020 • By Daniel Strain Researchers at CU Boulder are playing a major role in the next phase of a more than four decades-long campaign to take the temperature of the sun.   This week, NASA announced that two instruments designed and built at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) will get a unique hitchhiking opportunity: the chance to ride aboard a planned space mission called the Total and Spectral Solar Irradiance Sensor-2 (TSIS-2). This mission, the successor to TSIS-1, will collect the most detailed measurements to date of how much radiation the sun emits on an hour-by-hour basis.
