COLUMBIA, SC (Tribune News Service) – A an emergency training exercise will be held at Fort Jackson this week, and while much of the event will be a simulation, it will have real-life ramifications, U.S. military officials said.

The gates to the Army installation in the Columbia area will close during Wednesday’s joint training operation and will remain closed for hours, officials said in a news release.

The drill is scheduled between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m., according to the statement.

“No one will be in immediate danger – we are keeping people safe by keeping our crisis skills up to date,” officials said on Twitter. “Expect long waits on the job – be patient.”

Officials said the purpose of the exercise was to provide a training opportunity and improve preparedness in the event of a real emergency. The exercise will assess the position’s response measures to multiple all-hazards situations and test crisis management plans and procedures to mitigate them, according to the statement.

While the Army said there would be “mock casualties … transported by emergency vehicles to several area hospitals as part of the exercise,” traffic congestion and limited access to Fort Jackson will be quite real.

All gates to Fort Jackson will be closed for part of the training, and there will be more random searches for vehicles, officials tweeted. There will also be movement restrictions in all Fort Jackson buildings and facilities during the exercise.

Soldiers, employees and visitors to Fort Jackson can expect longer than usual wait times to enter the post, and there could be traffic jams near the facility’s entrance gates .

“The gates will be closed during the exercise, and we want the public to know so they can plan their routine trips to Fort Jackson for another day,” said Fort Jackson Commanding Officer Brig. Gen. Patrick R. Michaelis said in the statement. “Our army health clinic in Moncrief has already rescheduled many appointments to another day.”

Military ID holders who normally come on duty to shop at the police station and The Exchange should choose a different day to conduct these activities, officials said.

This includes military veterans and retirees, many of whom come to Fort Jackson from all over South Carolina, Georgia and North Carolina to use the facilities.

While army officials said they wanted people to know this was not a real event and no one would be in danger, Michaelis asked for patience.

“We try to ensure that the public doesn’t get frustrated waiting to get on or off the station that day,” Michaelis said. “Customers should be patient and expect delays.”

Officials said they would post updates on social media during and at the end of the training exercise.

Fort Jackson is the nation’s largest basic military training base with more than 50,000 recruits serving there each year.

Australia’s first ever AC Hotels by Marriott was introduced to the market this week with the opening of the AC Hotel by Marriott Melbourne Southbank on Thursday.

The 14th brand to enter Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio in Australia, AC by Marriott is a design-driven lifestyle brand originating from Spain.

Speaking to media, industry partners and guests at the grand opening, Sean Hunt, vice president of Marriott International Area – Australia, New Zealand and Pacific, said the brand is gaining momentum. magnitude on a global scale.

“The brand was first introduced in 2011 – it was a joint venture with renowned Spanish hotelier and Antonia Catalan and based on the beauty of classic modern design with a European soul and Spanish roots,” said he declared.

“This brand is growing incredibly quickly – 180 hotels worldwide and growing.”

Hunt said Melbourne’s reputation as “Australia’s cultural and design capital” makes it the perfect location for the brand’s Australian debut.

The 205-room Southbank Hotel, located near the South Wharf precinct – an area currently undergoing a major urban renewal project – is owned by mixed-use property developer and investment firm Capital Alliance, based in Melbourne.

Dog Friendly Premium King Room at AC by Marriott Melbourne Southbank

Capital Alliance founder and chief executive Mohan Du said he believed the hotel would spark the start of a new landscape for Southbank.

“Four years ago, we made a commitment to continue investing in our belief with the hospitality industry,” Du told guests at the opening.

“We believe that assets like hotels are really wonderful real estate. It is phenomenally beautiful and it activates the area. It’s not just about the building itself, it helps the area it’s in.

Go off the beaten track

The establishment’s dining offering is managed by Peter Rowland Group (PRG) – which is also behind retailer David Jones’ iconic Food Halls. It includes a Spanish-influenced dining experience, Sorolla, an independent bar, Triana Bar, which offers views of the city skyline, and the pool bar, Bar de Buceo, which also offers drinks and snacks. light meals outdoors.

The brand’s AC Gin and Tonic is available throughout the hotel, served in a custom glass by sculptural glass artist Adam Walmon.

“This is a pilot project as we partner with PRG, a company also owned by Capital Alliance, to provide our food and beverage solutions,” Hunt said.

“I think hotels now have to think outside the box, they have to offer something different…to differentiate themselves. I think this hotel will do just that.

Infinity Pool at AC by Marriott Melbourne Southbank

Leisure facilities include an outdoor infinity pool spanning the width of the building, a 24-hour fitness center, and a variety of meeting and event spaces with floor-to-ceiling windows. Collaborative spaces, including the brand’s signature AC Lounge, a modern coworking space by day that transforms into a social hub offering European-style tapas by night.

Modern minimalism

The hotel’s design, by DKO Architecture, features open, clutter-free layouts with sleek desks and open closets, reflecting South Melbourne’s industrial warehouse style.

Modern classic finishes are used throughout, including natural stone tiling, textured wood, metallic details, drapery layers, and brass accents.

Working with DKO, the hotel’s general manager, Harry Singh, said they had brought to life the core elements of AC’s design philosophy.

“Every detail of the experience is meticulously thought out to create a seamless stay,” he said.

“The design of the AC Hotel by Marriott Melbourne Southbank truly reflects the brand experience. The design approach to each space is optimal comfort and utility through modern decor, with open layouts offering functional beauty without distraction.

Acclaimed interior designer and TV personality Daniel Palmer, who hosted the opening event, described it as modern minimalism.

“One of the biggest trends right now is the revitalization of minimalism through a 2022 lens, and if you want to know what that looks like, you stick with it,” he told those gathered.

“Minimalism is, in its essence, the distillation of design into its most perfect form. It’s really distilling the design and making it perfectly accurate.

The hotel bar offers views of the city’s rooftops

Singh also spoke of his long-standing admiration for the brand and his pride in having introduced it to the Australian market.

“My love affair with this brand dates back a long time – before Marriott became part of its brand – in 2008, when I first traveled to Spain,” he said.

“I stayed there for a month, I traveled the cities and ended up staying in quite a few [AC] properties and I really liked them.

“Forty years later, here I am opening the first AC by Marriott in Australia. This is such an important occasion. I’m super proud. This is probably one of the proudest moments of my 20 years at Marriott International.

Growth of Marriott

The hotel is Marriott International’s ninth hotel in Melbourne and the third new hotel to open in the Victorian capital in the last 12 months.

Speaking about the broader business recovery, Hunt said there are many promising signs.

“COVID – in my opinion – it’s in the rearview mirror,” he said. “I think that’s behind us; we continue to live, it is part of the social fabric.

“Across the system, we’re seeing 60% occupancy – business just continues to take off.”

In their 20 years in control of the Texas Legislature, Republican lawmakers have worked tirelessly to reduce access to abortion.

Bound by the Limits of Roe v. Wade, who stopped them from enacting an outright ban on the procedure, lawmakers got creative. They demanded that abortion clinics have wide hallways and delegated private citizens to sue providers in an effort to shut down facilities that offer the procedure.

Future legislation on the subject will probably not require such ingenuity. A leaked draft opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court, published last week by Politico, suggests the court will overturn the landmark abortion ruling in the coming weeks, allowing states to regulate abortion as they see fit. Texas has a “trigger law” that would make abortion a crime, which would take effect 30 days after the Supreme Court overturns Roe.

With their decades-long goal achieved, Republican lawmakers said there was still work to be done. Texas GOP leaders and members of the Legislative Assembly said now is the time to turn their attention to strengthening the social safety net for women and children and investing in foster care and of adoption.

“It only makes sense,” said Rep. Steve Toth, R-The Woodlands. “The dog has grabbed the car now.”

At least some of the more conservative members of the House have said they also want to ensure strict enforcement of the abortion ban and prevent pregnant Texans from seeking legal abortions in other states.

“I think I can speak for myself and for other colleagues who align themselves with my political beliefs – we will continue to do our best to make abortion not just illegal, but unthinkable,” the rep said. Briscoe Cain, R-Deer Park, member of the far-right Freedom Caucus group.

Texas already has an arsenal of laws to punish virtually anyone involved in obtaining an abortion, said Liz Sepper, a law professor at the University of Texas at Austin. These include last year’s Senate Bill 8, which allows private citizens to sue anyone who “encourages” an abortion after six weeks of gestational age, as well as pre-Roe abortion laws. unenforced criminalizing a person who obtains the procedure, which the legislature never repealed. – some dating from the 1850s.

“If Roe is overruled, there’s already a criminal ban, there’s already a complicity ban, there’s already a ban on sending abortion drugs,” Sepper said. “In terms of the law’s ability to change behavior, they have almost closed all the gaps except criminalizing the pregnant person involved in an abortion.”

Cain said he has a vested interest in taking on abortion funds, which solicit contributions from donors to help defray the cost of out-of-state travel for pregnant Texans to receive the procedure. , citing a state law that prohibits “providing the means to procure an abortion.”

In a March letter to one such group, the Lilith Fund, Cain threatened to introduce a bill in the next legislative session that would empower district attorneys to prosecute abortion-related crimes across the country. state, even when local authorities refuse to do so.

Attempts to bar individuals from contributing to abortion funds would likely violate First Amendment protections on free speech, said Charles “Rocky” Rhodes, a professor at the South Texas College of Law.

“Helping people get abortions will be one of those tough questions that will arise in a post-Roe world if a legislature tries to criminalize a pregnant person’s ability to get an abortion somewhere where it’s legal.” , Rhodes said.

Cain said he was talking with other Republicans about other abortion-related legislative priorities, but it was premature to discuss them. The next legislative session is due to begin in January.

Texas Democrats, who are heavily outnumbered in the Legislature, called the leaked opinion “grim” but said they would not stop fighting for abortion access.

“This will only fuel our fight to codify abortion rights at the federal level,” Hannah Roe Beck, co-executive director of the Texas Democratic Party, said in a press release. “It’s more important than ever that we elect leaders willing to put everything on the line to get this passed by Congress.” We cannot tolerate anything less.

A congressional effort to do so, however, failed to pass the Senate in February. Another vote scheduled for this week is also expected to fail.

Austin State Rep. Donna Howard talked about expanding the safety net in terms of pregnant Texans who will still seek abortions.

“How can we provide enough health care to those we are going to force into pregnancies and carry them to term? Howard said. “It will be more focused, I think, on that now, if there’s a way to see how people can access medical abortion, it’s a way around the law.”

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, a staunchly conservative Republican, said in a statement Tuesday that the Legislature will continue to strengthen adoption programs in the state.

“Texas has led the way in protecting innocent life in the womb, and we will continue to do so in the future in the Texas Senate,” Patrick said.

Governor Greg Abbott did not respond to questions from the Texas Tribune about abortion-related legislative priorities for the upcoming January session. House Speaker Dade Phelan said in a statement that he was confident the Legislature would “rise to the occasion and redouble its commitment to maternal health care in our state.”

State Sen. Bryan Hughes, R-Mineola, the author of SB 8, did not respond. He posted on Twitter Thursday that Texas would “lead the way in a post-Roe world.”

Republicans have good reason to avoid discussing pre-Roe Texas law enforcement, said Renée Cross of the University of Houston’s Hobby School of Public Affairs: A total ban on abortion is widely unpopular with voters.

Just 15% of respondents in a University of Texas at Austin poll released this week said they supported banning all abortions. Most troubling about Abbott’s re-election bid this year, Cross said, is the fact that a majority of independents said they believe abortion should be available in most circumstances.

“The Republican Party was able to rely on independent voters often, but not on this issue,” Cross said. “We’ve seen Republican voters, especially suburban women, not voting for President Trump in 2020. Many of these women will likely think twice about voting for Governor Abbott.”

Other Republican lawmakers have spoken of proposing non-punitive measures in the next legislative session. Toth said if abortion is banned in the state, Republicans in the statehouse will focus on expanding social programs to help pregnant women and their children.

“Now more than ever, the pro-life community and lawmakers need to step up and make sure we help women in pregnancy crisis,” he said. “That means prenatal care, helping them stay in school. That means making sure we help women once the baby is born, that means adoption services.

Toth said expanding safety net programs would be a “moral response” to the state’s abortion ban. Such an expansion would require increased state funding for adoption services, foster homes and welfare programs, which Republicans have been reluctant to support in the past. But Toth, a member of the staunchly conservative House Freedom Caucus, said he believed GOP lawmakers would now support increased funding.

Joe Pojman, executive director of the anti-abortion group Texas Alliance for Life, said he would also support increased funding for the Alternative to Abortions program, which the Legislature has funded with $100 million this two-year budget cycle. The program pays a wide network of nonprofits — many of them ardently anti-abortion — for counseling, classes on prenatal nutrition and newborn care, and the provision of baby items.

But Pojman says lawmakers need to promote the program better so more pregnant women have access to it.

“For a lot of women who end up pregnant, they don’t even know it exists,” he said.

State Rep. Giovanni Capriglione, R-Southlake, who is a member of the House Appropriations Committee responsible for drafting the budget, said he would support increased funding for social safety net programs for pregnant women and young children.

He said he would push for increased Medicaid coverage for low-income new mothers. This cover was extended last year from 60 days to six months, but experts had recommended extending it for an entire year.

House lawmakers agreed to extend it for a year, but the Senate cut coverage to six months during final negotiations for the 2021 legislative session.

“Now we have to work very hard to help these new moms and new babies,” Capriglione said. “I’ll push for it.”

But Republicans are also bracing for a protracted fight with Democrats in Congress who will be re-energized to push for abortion access at the federal level.

“It’s not going away,” Toth said. “Nothing really changes.”

Rhodes, the South Texas law professor, said Roe’s potential overthrow could also weaken federal protections guaranteeing access to contraceptives. He said states could consider reclassifying emergency contraception such as Plan B, the pill that prevents pregnancy by delaying the release of an egg from the ovary, as forms of abortion.

Donlon Elementary parents and neighborhood residents recently held a rally to appeal to the school district and raise awareness in the community of their desire to retain all of the large green spaces and playgrounds on campus that are considered an option for new potential accommodations. .

The April 24 event at Val Vista Park across from the back of campus was organized by a group of concerned parents like Colleen Hake in hopes of saving the 8.3-acre Donlon lot as a green space for elementary students to play and succeed. optimal development in their youth, as well as for community use outside of school hours.

“There is scientific evidence that the mental, physical and emotional health benefits of green spaces for children are significant,” Hake told The Weekly.

“I think a big part of our event was just raising awareness that it was on the (city’s) housing list,” she added.

The Donlon Elementary field was among nearly two dozen properties across Pleasanton shortlisted for environmental review in the city’s Regional Housing Needs Allocation Site Inventory List for potential residential development. The final inventory list will be approved as part of the process to finalize the city’s housing element update.

Patrick Gannon, spokesman for the Pleasanton Unified School District, noted that the concept of converting part of Donlon Field into housing is in its early stages and could take years to materialize. The district would have to sell the land for any development to take place, and the proposal would have to go through public processes at the district and city levels.

The topic will be discussed at a special PUSD board meeting on the District Facilities Master Plan scheduled for May 19.

“As always, we encourage families and community members to learn more by watching and participating in these meetings, as all conversations regarding the use of district property are conducted publicly to allow for community engagement. community,” Gannon said.

“Right now, we are more focused on giving Donlon students access to green space, which is what parents and the Donlon community have asked us to do, so we are happy to do that for Donlon students” , he added, referring to the adjustments being considered for the new campus fence.

PUSD administrators Steve Maher and Kelly Mokashi, along with city mayor Karla Brown, were among those in attendance at the April 24 event in Val Vista, and they each hung out and interacted with the crowd, according to Hake.

“They spoke to so many in the community that Sunday, and everyone really gave them their thoughts on what’s going on in our part of Pleasanton,” Hake said.

Feedback on attending has been overwhelmingly positive, according to Hake, a mother of two and former NASA engineer and Navy veteran.

Preparation for the community event began a few months ago with the distribution of flyers throughout the neighborhood, but despite this, the organizing group of parents was surprised by the participation of about 300 people, Hake said.

Including the outreach angle, the event featured games for kids where robots provided treats to children, including raffles, according to Hake. Community members showed their support by donating products for the event for raffle prizes.

One of the concerns of parents at Donlon Elementary is that children will lose their playground and be forced to play on black roofs, which could cause more injuries from falls and overheating issues in hot weather, for example. compared to the grass field, according to Hake. They also expressed concerns about the accessibility of the grounds, for students and the community, in light of a new security fence installed by the district over the past year.

Gannon told The Weekly that the district plans to move the fence that currently sits between the Donlon asphalt and the field to create an accessible green space for the school community. This new enclosed green space would provide at least 3 acres – larger than two football pitches – which will make it easier for the school to supervise students safely, he said.

“We’re moving it, so some of the existing land would be fenced off as part of the school and tarmacked,” Gannon said. “That would be the area minus the 5.5 acres that is potentially being considered (for future residential use).”

A key issue with the 8.3-acre Donlon course “is that it is too large and the school cannot reasonably provide adequate supervision to allow students to play the course safely,” according to Gannon. , who noted that the result is the area would then sit there largely unused by the district.

The large lot would require supervision, and according to Gannon, the request for parent volunteers from the school did not receive enough response.

“So my question to parents who want the whole pitch is, what are you doing to ensure (safety)? It doesn’t seem like they’re stepping in so their kids can use the pitch during the day,” Gannon said.

Donlon Elementary School is nestled in the Val Vista neighborhood northwest of the intersection of West Las Positas Boulevard and Hopyard Road. The front of the school is on Dorman Road, but the part in dispute is the land behind the campus along Denker Drive and Payne Road.

DEM looking for lifeguards, rangers, facility attendants and more for beaches and state parks https://gillansinn.com/dem-looking-for-lifeguards-rangers-facility-attendants-and-more-for-beaches-and-state-parks/ Wed, 04 May 2022 17:20:44 +0000 https://gillansinn.com/dem-looking-for-lifeguards-rangers-facility-attendants-and-more-for-beaches-and-state-parks/ The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) announces that it is actively recruiting to hire the remainder of its summer workforce.

The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) announces that it is actively recruiting to hire the remainder of its summer workforce. Each year, DEM recruits lifeguards, park rangers, facility attendants, and other key personnel to fill seasonal positions at beaches, parks, and campgrounds across the state during the recreational season. summer. Rhode Island residents, ages 16 and older, are encouraged to apply. Click here to view vacancies and complete your application.

With only 52 full-time employees managing 25 parks and preserves, eight saltwater beaches and dozens of other properties, DEM’s parks and recreation division is heavily dependent on seasonal employees. Currently, DEM has hired about half of the roughly 500 total “seasonal workers” to fill essential summer positions such as lifeguards, rangers, beach managers, facility attendants, gardeners, laborers and nature educators.

“DEM operates parks, beaches and other facilities for public access and enjoyment, and hiring a strong seasonal workforce is the primary means of achieving these goals,” said DEM Acting Director Terry Gray. “While there are certainly challenges within the workforce, we hope that the prospect of higher than ever pay for lifeguard positions, working outdoors in some of the main destinations of state travel, gaining experience for future study and employment programs, and having the opportunity to meet and work with people from diverse backgrounds and walks of life will attract candidates to these vacancies. »

Gray is referring to data kept by the US Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) showing that the current number of job openings nationwide is at its highest level since December 2000. DEM and Other employers are also grappling with long-term workforce data revealing that the share of teens participating in the workforce peaked 40 years ago and has declined since. Today, just over a third, or 35%, of adolescents aged 16 to 19 are part of the labor force. BLS data suggests year-round schooling and summer schooling are a major cause, with the percentage of 16-19-year-olds enrolled in summer school tripling in the past 20 years.

Full-time lifeguard positions are available at all bathing areas in the state, including saltwater beaches such as Roger Wheeler and Scarborough, surfless beaches such as Goddard, and freshwater beaches such as Burlingame Campground and Lincoln Woods State Park. Salaries for lifeguards range from $14 to $17 per hour, depending on location and job level. All lifeguard candidates must receive state certification and must have successfully completed courses and hold valid lifeguard, first aid, and CPR training cards, including for infants, children, and adults.

DEM is also looking for rangers, clerks, facility attendants and groundskeepers to work at recreation sites across the state. Park rangers are instrumental in ensuring a safe and fun experience at DEM properties. They provide directions to bathers and park users, assist with crowd control, provide facility security checks, and are first responders in emergencies. Hourly rates for park rangers range from $12.25 to $13.35. Candidates for Facilities Attendant and Park Ranger I positions must be 16 years of age or older and candidates for Level II and III Park Ranger positions must be 18 years of age or older.

For a full list of seasonal job opportunities and to apply, click here. Most positions are full time and include weekends and holidays. Applications must be completed online and paper applications will not be accepted. The State of Rhode Island is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Opportunities for part-time positions or internship/college credits may be available for eligible personnel.

Rhode Island’s natural and public assets — including eight saltwater beaches, 25 parks and nature preserves, 8,200 parkland acres, 1,000 campsites, 400 miles of hiking and biking trails, and 200 fishing spots — are magnets, attracting more than 9 million Rhode Islanders and tourists a year. They are also an engine that adds approximately $300 million to the economy, nearly $40 million in state and local taxes, and supports nearly 4,000 jobs annually.

Rainbow House will launch a fundraising campaign to expand its facilities | K-12 Education https://gillansinn.com/rainbow-house-will-launch-a-fundraising-campaign-to-expand-its-facilities-k-12-education/ Fri, 29 Apr 2022 23:15:00 +0000 https://gillansinn.com/rainbow-house-will-launch-a-fundraising-campaign-to-expand-its-facilities-k-12-education/ Rainbow House, Colombia’s only at-risk children’s shelter, will launch a “Rebuild Our Rainbow” fundraising campaign to raise $1.5 million to expand its facilities.

Rainbow House, Colombia’s only at-risk children’s shelter, will launch a “Rebuild Our Rainbow” fundraising campaign to raise $1.5 million to expand its facilities. The organization held an open house on Friday to pre-launch expansion plans to long-time donors and partners.

In total, the expansion will cost $2.6 million. Rainbow House received $1.1 million from the Veterans United Foundation in November. The organization’s goal is to raise the other half by the end of the summer, chief executive Melissa Faurot said, although it will continue fundraising until it reaches the amount. total.

“It was a dream,” Faurot said, referring to the contribution from the Veterans United Foundation.

The expansion will include a new wing on the side of the children’s emergency shelter that will add eight additional bedrooms. Faurot said this will allow the shelter to double its current capacity of 18 children. The addition of the new wing will allow the shelter to have separate living facilities for boys and girls, said Richie Vanskike, director of development.

The expansion plan will also add a storm shelter under the new wing for children to visit in inclement weather.

The Child Advocacy Center portion of the building will receive an addition under the current plan. The garage, used for donation storage, and the shelter’s dining room will also be expanded.

Other improvements include technology updates and expansion of recreation areas.

Faurot said the goal was to innovate by the spring of 2023, with projects to be completed in two years.

Rainbow House works with Simon Associates, Inc., a local architectural group. Faurot said John Simon, owner of the group, was instrumental in the planning process, from the proposal to the Veterans United Foundation to the launch of the fundraising campaign. Sam McCain, project manager at Simon Associates, Inc., attended the open house and showed a virtual 3D video that visualized the expansion plans.

This is the first improvement plan since 2004, when Rainbow House moved to its current location on Towne Drive from Oakland Road.

Cortney Daniels attended the open house event as a donor. She said she has personally supported Rainbow House since it opened in the 1980s. At the time, she said she and her children donated Christmas gifts to children. Since 2017, she has donated to the organization through her family’s McCortney Foundation. She also continues to personally support Rainbow House through CoMoGives.

“It’s very important to get children out of traumatic environments, and this organization helps them,” Daniels said.

Regarding the expansion, Daniels said she thinks it’s important for girls and boys who have experienced trauma to have the privacy of separate wings while staying at the shelter.

“This expansion will give (Rainbow House) more space to do the work that they need to do,” she said.

In March, Rainbow House was facing staff shortages that made it difficult to care for the number of children it would typically be able to care for. Faurot said that since then the organization has hired five new employees and continues to recruit more staff to accommodate the expansion, which will require it to double its workforce.

The fundraising campaign will be released to the general public early next week.

An “unknown, but highly contagious” disease has killed 67 former wild horses at the Bureau of Land Management’s detention facility in Cañon City since April 23, according to the Bureau of Land Management.

BLM Colorado spokesman Steven Hall said Tuesday, April 26, the agency is working with Colorado State University and University of California Davis to identify the disease.

“We hope to have that answer as soon as possible,” Hall said. “Two different universities are helping with the analysis, both in terms of tissue samples, blood samples and autopsies, so we’re doing everything we can to find that answer.”



There are more than 2,500 feral horses at the facility, including most of the horses herded into the famous Sand Wash Basin herd in Moffat County last fall. The first of these horses was adopted last month.

Hall said the horses congregated in the West Douglas herd management area last fall were the most affected, although he said he did not have precise measurements of the origin of each of the horses who died.



“That doesn’t mean there wasn’t a Sand Wash horse or a few Sand Wash horses affected,” Hall said. “Primarily it’s been in the people of West Douglas.”

The deaths were strongly criticized by the American Wild Horse Campaign on Tuesday, saying the BLM roundups that put more than 60,000 feral horses in government corrals are at the heart of the problem. BLM argues that roundups are necessary to bring populations down to a manageable level.

“The agency plans to round up and remove another 19,000 feral horses and burros from public lands this year,” said Suzanne Roy, executive director of the advocacy group, which has been harshly critical of the BLM’s handling of horses. wild across the West. .

“We can expect to see more suffering and death if the BLM continues on this dangerous and destructive path,” Roy continued.

In the statement, the Wild Horse Campaign said the agency noted that horses rounded up at the West Douglas rally near the Utah state line were separated in Cañon City pending further testing for the equine infectious anemia, an infectious disease that had been confirmed in horses in the nearby town of Uintah. County, Utah.

Hall said there was a condition associated with some of the horses rounded up in the West Douglas area, but he was unsure if it could have contributed to this outbreak.

“This is an area that is not suitable for wild horses and has been for years due to vegetation (and) access to water,” Hall said. “It’s no surprise that some of the West Douglas horses were brought together with existing health issues.”

The West Douglas roundup last fall focused on horses that were technically outside the herd management area. In the minds of land managers, horses have no place at all.

Prior to the Sand Wash Basin rally, the roundup in the West Douglas area was the largest in Colorado history with 457 horses captured. A month later, the BLM removed 632 horses from Sand Wash Basin.

This is the second outbreak of illness at a BLM facility holding horses this year.

On March 28, the BLM announced that it would cancel an adoption event scheduled for April 1. at his Wheatland Off-Range Corral facility in Wyoming because horses there were suffering from an upper respiratory disease called Streptococcus equi, or “strangles.” The March statement says the disease is similar to strep throat in humans.

Last week, the BLM canceled another adoption event at the Wyoming facility, saying the horses had yet to fully recover from the “persistent illness”. However, the BLM has not reported any deaths at this facility.

“Some horses are still showing signs of illness,” the April 22 BLM statement read. “Therefore, the closure and quarantine will remain in effect until a veterinarian determines the horses are no longer infectious.”

Hall said he didn’t know of a connection between the facilities that could explain the outbreak.

Hall said large outbreaks like this are rare at the Cañon City facility, which has the capacity to hold up to 2,900 horses. Hall said he didn’t know how many horses were sick, just the number of horses that died from the disease.

Hall said disease outbreaks among livestock in general are “something that happens”, and it’s “not surprising that some of the same diseases or conditions that can affect domestic livestock can also enter a feral horse corral. “.

Currently, horses that have been exposed or show symptoms are separated from those that do not show symptoms and have not been exposed. The property is under voluntary quarantine.

“The plan is to try to find out and figure out what’s causing this, and find a way to protect as many horses as possible in this facility,” Hall said. “And don’t let this spread to other horses either.”

On Tuesday, March 29, students from the School of Media Arts and Studies participated in the Columbus Blue Jackets Video Production Day. The 12 participants included undergraduate and graduate students with an interest in sports broadcasting and production.

“So many of our students are interested in live production and the world of sports is a great place to start,” said Andie Walla, assistant professor of education in the School of Media Arts and Studies. This is the second time Walla has invited students to participate.

The event is hosted by the Blue Jackets and includes a tour of Nationwide Arena’s video production facilities, including the control room, press conference room and TV and radio booths, and the band stayed to watch the Blue Jackets play the New York Islanders. that night.

OHIO students had the opportunity to tour the production facilities at Nationwide Arena during the Columbus Blue Jackets Video Production Day.

“My experience at the Columbus Blue Jackets video production day was very interesting,” said Eileen Eidelberg, Senior Integrated Media Specialist. “I had the opportunity to step into the Blue Jackets production truck and get to meet director Joel and TD Kim; they let me follow them during the game in the second period.

The students participated in a panel of speakers with four veteran members of the Blue Jackets production team, including a video producer and a motion graphic designer. David Maetzold, rinkside reporter and games host for Fox Sports Ohio, offered career advice and the panel also included OHIO alum Greg Murry, sound and voice announcer for the Columbus Blue Jackets .

“I won a signed Roslovic Puck for keeping the conversation going during the Q&A,” Eidelberg said. “Dave, the person who took me to the production truck, told me that I was the most eager and had a good attitude and a genuine interest in chasing a dream that will take me far.”

Attendees included undergraduate and graduate students from several university majors and programs, all of whom had the chance to borrow skates and take them for a spin on the professional rink.

“I enjoyed everything we did at Nationwide Arena,” Eidelberg said. “It will be a day that I will remember for the rest of my life.”
