Planting Forecast: Not Much of a Silver Lining in Those Rain…


first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – May 27, 2017 There is a Memorial Day weekend tradition in Indiana: planting crops while listening to the Indy 500 race on the tractor radio. For much of Indiana, that is not going to happen this year. HAT chief meteorologist Ryan Martin says the next few days will be more wet than dry. “Wet as we start off the period with significant rains for the first two days of the holiday weekend,” he stated. “The second of two waves from this event moves through Sunday, and that will bring two-day rain totals at .5”-1.5” with coverage at 80%. Rains Sunday will not be lighter or have lower coverage than Saturday rains…this will just be an all-out rain event for most of the state.” SHARE Home News Feed Planting Forecast: Not Much of a Silver Lining in Those Rain Clouds Planting Forecast: Not Much of a Silver Lining in Those Rain Clouds Facebook Twitter Previous articleCorn Replant Considerations 2017Next articleConsumers Want the Meat, Just Not the Animal Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more


I’m afraid I’ll give mam Covid


first_imgPrint WhatsApp Advertisement Twitter Heart failure patient and advocate Pauline O’Shea with her daughter Ali.LITTLE Ali O’Shea from Ardnacrusha is not happy about going back to school – not because she doesn’t like schoolwork or being with her friends but because she’s very afraid of giving her mother Covid-19.Her mum, Pauline, has suffered from heart failure and her condition is such that she has had a defibrillator fitted in her body to resuce her in the event of her heart stopping,When teachers asked their pupils to write something about coming back to school, nine-year-old Ali wrote that she feared she would infect her mother.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Pauline (47) is an advocate with the Irish Heart Foundation to have under 70s heart failure patients moved up the priority list for Covid vaccination.Pauline is one of 7,000 Irish heart failure patients under 70 and she believes they have been totally forgotten in the priority list of people who urgently need vaccination.” I absolutely believe that older people who are more vulnerable should receive the vaccine first.“Many people in the heart failure community are in that group and will be vaccinated but for those of us who are younger, we’re just not being mentioned. We’re asking to be moved up the list so that we can stop living in terror.”The mother-of-three described to the Limerick Post what precautions she has to take as her children are back at school.“When I pick them up in the car, I cover them in sanitiser, even their heads. None of us know exactly where this virus lands.“When they get home, they change out of their school uniforms right away. I know one women in the heart failure community who can’t even hug her children until they have changed all of their clothes at the back door.“We can’t afford to take any risk because Covid attacks the heart and there’s a real likelihood that if any of us get this, we’ll be leaving our children without a mother.”Over the last 12 months, Covid has been added to the restrictions which Pauline, and people with her condition, have been subjected to.With three children of school age, their interaction in classrooms exposes Pauline to more than 70 people who may or may not carry the virus.“You’re trying to wear two hats – you have this medical condition but you’re also a mother and children need their mother. We want to be able to mother our children freely, away from the real worry that Covid might get us.“We’re not asking to be be put up the list ahed of more vulnerable people – just to be included on the list as a priority”.

Council hears OC agreement details


first_img Twitter Pinterest By Odessa American – February 2, 2021 Council hears OC agreement details The Odessa City Council during a virtual work session on Tuesday discussed issues ranging from the federal Payroll Protection Program, a contract for road sealant and to consider an economic development agreement between the Odessa Development Council and the Odessa College Foundation. Cristal Villegas, a Frost Bank representative, detailed that the second round of the PPP is open to applications from local businesses and that this round of the funding can also be accessed by non-profits. Saying “we’ve all been impacted by this,” Villegas said those needing information can visit sba.gov for instructions in both English and Spanish. She said businesses must be able to show a 25 percent reduction in gross receipts due to the pandemic. She added that $284 billion was allocated by the federal government for the program. The loans provided by PPP can eventually be turned into a forgiven grant for those who meet the criteria. The deadline to apply is either March 31 or until the funding runs out. Council also heard details about Odessa College’s new health sciences center, which is scheduled to break ground on the campus in the fall of this year. Wesley Burnett, director of Economic Development, detailed for council the economic development agreement between ODC and Odessa College Foundation for the new construction. Burnett said the 83,000 square foot building will cost almost $40 million and OC President Gregory Williams said OC has donations and other funding for much of the cost of the building. Burnett touted the workforce training aspect of the partnership with OC and said 44 jobs will be retained and 16 new jobs created with more than $1 million in payroll. Williams told council the new center will create jobs and produce a record number of students working in the health science field. Council also heard a presentation to amend the 2020-21 budget by appropriating an additional $102,536.92 for the cost of the General Election and Runoff Elections. A runoff on city council and costs associated with COVID cleaning and extra voting days as required by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott also factored into the higher cost. City Manager Michael Marrero presented to the council information on an application to the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs for 2021 Competitive 9% Housing Tax Credit for Woodcrest Apartments. Marrero said Woodcrest Apartments can apply for a tax credit to allow the developer to move residents to another area and to demolish the 74 units that are 50 years old and to build new units. He said all residents will be relocated and that the contractor will be responsible for costs associated with the move. The residents are all part of an affordable housing project. Phil Fisher with Sonoma Housing said the long term objective is to serve long term low income housing. He said the program will not cost the city but rather is a federal program and that it would allow newer and more efficient housing. He said the program requires a resolution of support from the city during the Feb. 9 city council meeting and said the project would begin in the fall. The construction costs will be around $14 million and will take about 12 to 14 months to complete. There are currently 74 households living there now. HUD pays about 2/3 of the rent for most on the property now. Many residents are elderly or disabled. Fisher said the new units could last as long as 40 years.

‘This is not my son’: Mother of man accused of killing Wisconsin prosecutor tells police, document says


first_imgCourtesy DeKalb County State’s Attorney’s Office(BEAVER DAMN, Wisc.) — A Wisconsin man, who allegedly shot his ex-wife multiple times just feet from their young daughter, had no history of violence, his mother told police.Ulisses W. Medina Espinosa was charged on Tuesday with one count of first-degree intentional homicide, under the elements of domestic abuse, after the murder of his ex-wife, 30-year-old Stacia Hollinshead.Hollinshead, an assistant district attorney in Dekalb County Attorney’s Office, was killed on Saturday.Espinosa, 31, is in custody and it is unclear if he has an attorney.Bob Barrington, managing attorney of the Dodge County District Attorney’s office — that’s handling the case — said that Espinosa made an initial appearance in court Tuesday and to $2 million bond was set. The criminal complaint details how police responded to a 911 call made by Espinosa’s mother, Maria Espinosa Rubio. In Spanish, Rubio told the officer that her son shot his ex-wife after he made a surprise visit to his parents house.“He killed her! He killed her! He killed her!” Rubio allegedly told the officer, according to the criminal complaint.Despite settling their divorce approximately two years ago, Hollinshead remained close with her in-laws and had arranged a visit for March 23, through text messages, “so they can see [the] female child,” according to the criminal complaint where Rubio’s statements to police were summarized.Hollinshead was granted full custody of their child by a judge, according to the officer’s statements in the probable cause portion of the criminal complaint.Rubio said during this visit to her Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, home that “suddenly Ulisses arrived at the house” shortly after Hollinshead and the child arrived around 2:15 p.m.Rubio told police that while it was a “surprises visit” it was “very normal that he arrived with gifts for” the child according to the complaint.At one point, Rubio and Hollinshead were in the kitchen and they left Espinosa with his daughter in the living room as he showed “her several toys he brought her.” Rubio said that “she suddenly heard several gunshots that came from behind her. While Rubio was unable to remember how many she heard, she just kept repeating that “she heard many, many gunshots,” according to the criminal complaint.When she turned, she saw Espinosa in the kitchen near where Hollinshead was on the ground “laying on her stomach with blood all over her back,” and she saw him toss a gun in the sink.“Maria told me that she grabbed Ulisses by the arms and screamed at him, ‘What are you doing? What are you doing?’ She said that he did not say anything, had no expression on his face and slowly walked back to female child in the living room,” according to the criminal complaint.Rubio said that her son went to the living room where the little girl was crying, and she ran upstairs to get her sleeping husband before calling 911. Another responding officer found approximately 16 spent shell casings and assessed that Hollinshead was dead at the scene, the report read.The initial responding officer detailed how Rubio told him that her son “has never been violent in his life. She said that this is completely out of his character. She kept telling me, ‘This is not my son. This is not my son.’”Rubio told the officer that the couple “never had any domestic incidents/physical fighting incidents” and that she had “no knowledge of him having any sort of guns/weapons, and has never used them in his past,” according to the criminal complaint.“She told me that he was having a very hard time with the divorce and court cases about female child,” the responding officer reported in the criminal complaint. Rubio told police that Hollinshead did have a restraining order against Espinosa “due to the divorce, but again assured me that he was not an aggressive or angry man,” the report states.Court records show that Hollinshead had a protective order filed against Espinosa in 2016 in DeKalb County, Illinois — the same county where she worked in the state’s attorney’s office at the time of her death.“Maria continued to tell me that she was completely shocked from the incident and could not believe that it was real,” the responding officer wrote in the report.Barrington said that Espinosa’s expected back in court for a preliminary examination on May 23rd. Espinosa is currently being held in Dodge County’s detention facility in Juneau, Wisconsin.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more


Reality check helps feed Sainsbury’s staff supply


first_imgReality check helps feed Sainsbury’s staff supplyOn 17 Sep 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Sainsbury’s supermarket is attempting to reduce turnover of new staff bygiving applicants a clearer picture of job roles. HR director at Sainbury’s, Imelda Walsh, told delegates at a conference inLondon last week that the company recognised its staff turnover was rising, andthat the problem was particularly acute among those with less than six monthsservice. “People were leaving because the jobs didn’t meet theexpectations,” she said. “We needed to overhaul recruitment.” Sainsbury’s’ application packs now tell people what it is like to work forthe company. It shows the day-to-day realities, and uses existing staff to talkabout their roles. The pack also includes a questionnaire that people can useto check if a job is right for them. “It acts as a filter, and the number of suitable applicants hasincreased,” Walsh said. She said early signs indicate the new system is working, especially atlowering the staff turnover rate. But, Walsh noted, retail has many recruitment problems to tackle, especiallyas the sector grows and requires more staff. “The resourcing challenge in retail is second to none,” she saidat the IGD Race for Talent, adding that by 2005, an estimated 5.4 millionpeople will be working in the industry. In London, one person in every 100 already works for Sainsbury’s, andemployment in the sector accounts for 17 per cent of all jobs in the UK. Sainsbury’s is also trying to lower its graduate turnover rate by introducinga fast-track programme where the top 10 per cent enter a specialised managementtraining scheme.
