“IS IT TRUE” NOVEMBER 15, 2019

first_imgWe hope that today’s “IS IT TRUE” will provoke honest and open dialogue concerning issues that we, as responsible citizens of this community, need to address in a rational and responsible way?IS IT TRUE that the shareholders of Gannett and Gateway have approved the merger between the two companies and the closing date is set for Tuesday, November 19, 2019? …this merger will create the largest owner of newspapers in the United States but a fear is evident among the rank and file employees of both groups that layoffs that are most certainly coming?…the companies have already made it public that at least $300 million per year in efficiencies will be found but financial analysts who have examined the terms of the deal are all saying that is the tip of the iceberg?…this deal is being enabled by a short term debt instrument of $1.8 billion at an interest rate of 11.5%?…this interest rate reflects the opinion of the lender that this a very high-risk deal as bonds like this carries the word junk as a prefix?…this is a sad situation for journalism in general that has been coming like an avalanche for several years?…the combination of aggregation of National articles, less local articles, and outward unabashed political bias in reporting has made a joke of newspapers across America and consumer demand has been reduced to rubble?…the reality is that if this merger fails to service this debt quickly, printed hometown papers across the nation may well cease to exist in the next few years?IS IT TRUE it will cost $100 per person for the next 15 to 20 years to build a much-needed addition to the Vanderburgh County jail?… to achieve this goal the citizens of Vanderburgh County must be willing to allow the County officials to take this amount from their payroll taxes for the next 15 to 20 years?  …all individuals on Social Security or Disability will be exempt from this special use tax?IS IT TRUE on December 4th, 2019 the Vanderburgh County Commission will be holding a public hearing concerning four (4) proposed designs of the Vanderburgh County Jail?  …the proposed jail designs were created by AmericanStructure Engineering after they gathered information from State, Federal. local law enforcement, elected officials, criminal justice experts, and other stakeholders?IS IT TRUE that it’s obvious if the Vanderburgh County Council members don’t make a decision to expand the jail they will forever be known as being  “SOFT ON CRIME”?IS IT TRUE we are told that a well-known businesswoman is seriously considering running for Vanderburgh County Commission seat that is currently held by Cheryl Musgrave?IS IT TRUE that a couple of days ago we posted that former Evansville Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel/Jones & Wallace and Democratic State Reperseentive Ryan Hatfield have shown interest in becoming the 2020 City Council attorney?  …we are now told that Democratic State Reperseentive Ryan Hatfield isn’t interested in being the legal counsel for the Evansville City Council?IS IT TRUE the CCO readers voted in a current “Readers Poll” that they feel the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Coliseum in downtown Evansville should be turned into a Military Museum by an overwhelming margin?  …we are told that this historic military facility is currently known as a “Bingo Parlor”?IS IT TRUE that our “Readers Poll” is considered to be non-scientific but trendy? …one of our recent polls asked: “Do you think the Republicans will take control of the 2020 City Council”?  …our readers voted 159 YES, 197 voted N0 and 59 people said they didn’t know? …it looks like our readers got it right?IS IT TRUE our readers also picked the following winners in the Evansville City Council races:  Jim Brinkmeyer in 6th Ward, Justin Elpers in the 5th Ward, Alex Burton in the 4th Ward, Zack Hermounous in the 3rd Ward, Missy Mosby in the 2nd Ward, and Ben Trockman in the 1st Ward?  …our readers picked the following winners in the At-Large City Council races: Ron Beane, Jonathan Weaver, and Katitian Morley?  …not bad pickings for a non-scientific but trendy City County Observer “Readers Polls”?  …we give five (5) cheers to the City-County Observers readers for their amazing election day predictions?IS IT TRUE we have been told by several Democratic party political movers and shakers are highly disappointed that the Democratic Party Of Vanderburgh leadership hasn’t called one strategy session to map out the future agenda and direction for the members of the newly elected City Council members? …we are told that many people are hoping that the newly elected Democratic 7 to 2  majority will find another Curt John in their ranks?IS IT TRUE we hope that someone with common business and political sense with come forward and encourage the Indiana Governor to push our lawmakers to approve simulcast horse racing at casinos soon as possible?  …if the Indiana power brokers delay this decision the Commonwealth of Kentucky will have the upper hand in generating future gaming dollars because they will have both casino and simulcast gaming?IS IT TRUE that former City-County Observer editor and occasional contributor Joe Wallace has accepted an appointment to the Technology Advisory Board of the California Utility Commissions EPIC program?…the EPIC program was established for the purpose of investing in promising technologies to further the use of renewable energy, to strengthen the electrical grid, and to assure that the California power grid is both reliable and sustainable?…the EPIC program invests roughly $130 million per year and has many applicants from all over the world competing for support for projects?… Wallace was invited because of his success in establishing the Innovation Hub or Renewable Energy in Palm Springs and for a lifetime of recognition as an engineering professional in the fields of energy, computer memories, laser-based metrology, and entrepreneurship associated with those technologies?IS IT TRUE we are pleased with the way that State Representative Ron Bacon is representing the people in his district?Today’s “Readers Poll” question is: Who do you feel is the number one TV station in this region?If you would like to advertise on the CCO please contact us at City-County [email protected]: City-County Observer Comment Policy.

He is featured on dozens of recordings, including two on the Blue Note record label, “Channel Three” by Greg Osby, and “Avatar” by Gonzalo Rubalcaba.

Candidate Profile: Vidal/Devine

first_imgWho are they: Student body presidential candidate Lauren Vidal brings experience to the table from her time in FUEL as a freshman and her service as student body parliamentarian during her sophomore year. A junior Management and Consulting major with a minor in public policy, Vidal hails from Miami, Fla.Devine, a Cincinnati native, studies pre-medicine and economics with a minor in Peace Studies. He chaired the department of Gender Issues in student government last year.Both studied abroad last semester — Vidal in Washington, D.C., and Devine in London.First priority: If elected, their first goal would be to work within the existing structure of student government and seek to foster a close-knit community among members of that group. Vidal said they will look for a broad array of passionate people to lead the departments and then work to get each department on board with their goals from the beginning.She said the restructured platform they composed, structured around the divisions of each department, reflects and reinforces the underlying importance of each department in student government.Top priority: The team’s biggest goal is serving their peers and the broader Notre Dame community as best they can, Devine said. He said they will do this by both serving the student body through their leadership and then providing opportunities for them to be of service to the greater South Bend area.“We really have this idea of service, and although we understand that’s a broad term, we really [prioritize] service to our peers and to our community as a whole,” Vidal said. “For our peers, we work on specific, tangible projects.”Best Idea: Devine said the two hope to continue many of the current administration’s agenda items, including a push for medical amnesty for students. He said he contacted members of the Office of Student Affairs to discuss whether “du Lac” would be up for revision during the year ahead, and he said he talked extensively with current student body president Alex Coccia about Coccia’s work toward that goal.Devine clearly did his homework on the matter and gathered the necessary information to make the platform item grounded in real possibility. He said he hopes to change the tone of that conversation to center around keeping students safe and accountable, not enabling them to behave irresponsibly.Worst Idea: Vidal said while interning in D.C., she worked with a press secretary and hopes to find someone to replicate that role in student government. She said the press secretary would be a channel of communication between the cabinet and the student body and could help coordinate media coverage of initiatives.While increased communication is generally a positive thing for any administration, in this form, it would likely remove Vidal and Devine from the student body. Face-to-face communication and a visible, personal presence on campus would better serve students’ needs.Most feasible: Their “29 for 29” initiative would pair each residence hall with an underprivileged South Bend family, linking students to the surrounding area and fostering a deeper understanding of the Notre Dame family. Both Vidal and Devine said they have worked at the South Bend Homeless Shelter and have the contacts to organize and execute this plan.Least feasible: The platform contained plans for Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol (SNAP) to supplement the existing SafeWalk system. The patrol would essentially consist of teams of two trained students on call to pick up students in distress on golf carts with the goal of providing other options besides walking and protecting students from inclement weather.Because the service would run only from 8:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m., though, its hours overlap directly with SafeWalk’s current availability. A better option would be to run the service from 2:30 a.m. to 5 a.m. in order to provide 24-hour options. However, even this is not necessary because an after-hours call to SafeWalk will connect a student to NDSP, who will provide a ride to their destination.Notable quote: “One of the main things we’re pushing is continuity. … A lot of our policy initiatives are extensions of what already exists.” — DevineFun Fact: Vidal comes from a “loud, proud Cuban family” and said she loves to cook with her parents and grandparents. Devine has a twin sister at Ohio State University.Bottom line: Vidal and Devine both cited extensive, diverse friend groups at the University that they hope to draw upon for ideas and involvement if elected to office. Their plans to maximize efficiency and collaboration within the student government offices will help them to execute the wide array of initiatives outlined in their platform, but they might do so from a skewed vantage point of the student body’s actual needs if they view campus life mostly through the lenses of their friends and co-workers. Their comprehensive platform speaks to their familiarity with many aspects of student life, and their previous experience in student government makes them well-prepared to lead in the year ahead.Tags: 2014 Election, Student Body President, Student governmentlast_img read more

2018’s top homes revealed and Queensland reno projects are right up there among them

first_imgB & B Residence in Paddington, designed by Hogg & Lamb. Picture: Christopher Frederick Jones.A Morningside home in the same category, designed by Kieron Gait Architects took the approach of adding to the highset 1920s house by connecting it back to its garden via a pavilion. The original Queenslander was now a “retreat” containing the bedrooms and a TV and craft room while the new “garden pavilion” houses the kitchen, dining room and living areas. “Connected by a covered, but open deck and link, it encourages breezes through the site and allows the family to feel like they are within thegarden domain.” Crescent House in Seven Hills, by architecture firm Deicke Richards with Steven Clegg Design. Picture: Christopher Frederick JonesArchitect Jolyon Robinson, whose design for Avonlea saw it short-listed for the new house over 200sq m award as well as the sustainability gong, said the project was bittersweet for him as the property was on the site of his childhood home.“That house was probably the most special to me because our family home used to be on that site when we were kids,” he told The Sunday Mail. “The old Queenslander burnt down nine years ago and I was commissioned by the new owners to design them a new family home. Terrarium House in Highgate Hill by architecture firm John Ellway. Picture: Toby Scott.Also in the category was JB House in Capalaba by Reddog Architects which looked at reutilising the existing home and reconfiguring it for passive environmental control, taking a “simple approach” that revealed “points of intersection between new and old and use ordinary materials to create extraordinary spaces”.“This extension to a single storey, brick veneer home in Brisbane’s east is an example of a new wave of alterations and additions projects in the city’s suburbs,” the firm said in its statement on the project. Bungalow Garden Rooms in Paddington — Architect Myers Ellyett with Dan Young Landscape Architect. Picture: Cathy Schusler.It will face stiff competition from fellow Queenslanders, with an Auchenflower project called Bungalow Garden Rooms by Myers Ellyett with Dan Young Landscape Architectalso up for thelandscape award nationally, and three others also up for the “over 200sq m” renovation prize.A Paddington home called B & B Residence designed by Hogg & Lamb tackled turned an existing inner-city Queenslander cottage on a steep site into a reinvigorated private, functional space. “Views are edited while portions of the sky, trees and mountains are carefully framed through a series of openings, peepholes and voids,” was how Hogg & Lamb described it. Yeronga House by Tim Bennetton Architects. Picture: Shantanu Starick.Smaller renovations under 200sq m out of Queensland also caught the judges’ eyes, three of which were now in the shortlist for nationals including Terrarium House in Highgate Hill by John Ellway, where a 100-year-old cottage was jettisoned into the 21st century with a sympathetic upgrade that involved inhabiting the undercroft. ”The house began as an exercise in pragmatics,” was how the firm described the challenge.

Picture: Christopher Frederick Jones.The fourth house to make the cut for its “over 200sq m” renovation work was Yeronga House by Tim Bennetton Architects in Brisbane. The low key Queenslander was transformed with a new pod or studio created to the rear of the house, separated by a walkway and series of decks going to the garden. They even raised the level of the garden to avoid the use of all balustrades. Avonlea in Eumundi gave Robinson Architects a chance to make the most of the site. Picture: Nic Granleese.“It was a labour of love. I obviously knew the site but hadn’t been there for 20 years. “The old Queenslander was beautiful but hot in summer and cold in winter. Having a blank canvas and the ability to get all the fundamentals right like orientation and windows was so great.”Of the seven Queensland renovations that made the national cut, four were for alteration and addition over 200sq m, including Seven Hills property Crescent House by Deicke Richards and Steven Clegg Design. The home was also short-listed in the garden or landscape category nationally. center_img Avonlea in Eumundi, designed by Robinson Architects. Picture: Nic Granleese.QUEENSLAND home renovations from garden rooms to pavilions and undercroft rejuvenation have made the cut in the battle for top national honours.Eleven homes in the Sunshine State were short-listed for the 2018 Houses Awards — and in a nod to the record surge in renovations, seven of the houses were upgrades.Juror Stuart Vokes, director of Vokes and Peters Queensland which won the coveted Australian House of the Year last year, was blown away by the calibre of designs coming out of Queensland.The work was so good that two homes were nominated for double awards: Avonlea by Robinson Architects in Eumundi and Crescent House in Brisbane’s Seven Hills byDeicke Richards with Steven Clegg Design. JB House in Capalaba by Reddog Architects. Picture: Christopher Frederick Jones.Monash Road House in Tarragindi by the firm Zuzana and Nicholas made it a triple out of Brisbane for the smaller renovation category, using a strategy of “minimal intervention”.The project involved “renovations to an existing post war house in Tarragindi, Queensland, through minimal interventions and new insertions within the old house” was how the firm described their work. Monash Road House in Tarragindi by architecture firm Zuzana and Nicholas. Picture: Toby Scott.Two new houses over 200sq m made the shortlist too — one out of Ashgrove called Glenlyon Estate by Push Architecture and Louise Walsh Interior Design and the other a glass pavilion wrapped in timber sliding screens titled Tinbeerwah House by Teeland Architects in the Noosa Hinterland. Glenlyon Estate in Ashgrove by Push Architecture and Louise Walsh Interior Design. Picture: Maree Homer.The idea was to open the Noosa home “to the bush, ocean, stars and sky”, with hardwood screens allowing the owners to control light, breezes, privacy and views. “The long thin plan ensures the building is only one room deep to maximise, ocean views, cross ventilation and natural light. The house layout allows the family to come together to cook, eat and relax, but also the separation of more quiet spaces for reflective time.” Tinbeerwah House in the Noosa hinterland by Teeland Architects. Picture: Jared Fowler.The 2018 Houses Award is in its eighth year and saw the highest number of entries ever, with 477 submissions, up 7 per cent on 2017.Houses magazine editor and 2018 juror, Katelin Butler, said it was “great to see our talented architects and designers experimenting and challenging the status quo, resulting in a series of surprising and delightful architectural moments.” The winners will be announced on July 27.

What TV channel is Sweden vs. Russia on? Schedule, time for World Juniors 2020 semifinal

first_imgTwo of the world juniors powerhouses — Sweden and Russia — meet in the semifinal on Saturday. The winner plays for gold on Sunday while the loser goes for bronze with the possibility of walking away empty-handed.The Swedes have yet to lose a game and easily defeated the host Czechs in the quarterfinals. A squad jam-packed with talent, they’ve potted a tournament-high 25 goals while allowing a low-leading eight. Vancouver Canucks prospect Nils Hoglander leads the tournament with 10 points (five goals, five assists). Samuel Fagemo, the Los Angeles Kings second-round pick in 2019, is first in goals scored with six. Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Rasmus Sandin has been a bit banged up in this one — taking a couple of slashes to the arm — but has been a key offensive threat with five assists.  Here is how you can watch the semifinal matchup between Sweden and Russia on Saturday:How to watch Sweden vs. RussiaTV channel (U.S.): NHL NetworkTV channel (Canada): TSNLive stream (Canada): TSN LiveSweden vs. Russia: When is puck drop?Date: Saturday, Jan. 4Time: 9 a.m. ETWorld Juniors 2020: Four reasons the United States was handed an early exit Full World Junior Championship scheduleSATURDAY, JAN. 4SF: Sweden vs. Russia9 a.m.TSN, NHLNSF: Canada vs. Finland1 p.m.TSN 1/4/5, NHLNSUNDAY, JAN. 5Bronze-medal game9 a.m.TSN, NHLNGold-medal game1 p.m.TSN, NHLN(All times Eastern) ‘IT’S GOLD OR BUST’: NHL players look back on World Junior Championship memoriesRussia enters the semis coming off a 3-1 win over Switzerland. Yaroslav Askarov has had an up-and-down tourney but stopped 14 of 15 shots in net on Thursday.
