Klein ISD voters will decide whether they want the district to commit millions to new buildings and projects in May after the school board unanimously approved the listing of a $1.1 billion bond proposal dollars on the ballot.

Board members called for a bond election at their regular meeting scheduled for Tuesday, which proposes funding for many new projects, including new buildings and equipment, and a new sports stadium. Voters will have a chance to consider the proposal during the May 7 election.

The bond referendum will appear as four proposals on the ballot, the board meeting agenda says.

Proposal A requests $843.84 million to fund the construction and renovation of district buildings as well as new equipment and school buses. Proposal B is for $51.51 million to be used to update district technology, such as new personal computers for staff and students.

Proposal C includes a new event center, which is slated for $131.325 million. Proposal D involves a new district stadium and renovations to Memorial Stadium that would cost $75.19 million.

According to a presentation made at the board meeting, adoption of the four bond proposals could result in an increase in the tax rate of approximately $0.03 per $100 of valuation.

This bond proposal was developed following meetings of the District Bond Steering Committee, which concluded in mid-December and presented its findings to the Klein ISD Board of Directors at a special meeting. held in January.

The committee was first launched in mid-November last year. The committee’s reviews included more than 100 interviews with department heads, managers, technology consultants and engineers, contractors and architects.

The committee’s goal was to ensure that every student and teacher had what they needed to continue the district’s academic, athletic and fine arts success, a district press release said. It was made up of nearly 100 parents, teachers, alumni, business partners and community members. Their report outlines aging facilities and technology needs, as well as options for future new facilities.

Klein ISD ratepayers last approved a bond for the district in 2015, which passed with 76% of the vote. This bond helped pay for the construction of new campuses, new renovations and technology additions, as well as safety and security updates.

Texas Railroad Commission declares gas system “98% winterized” – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth https://gillansinn.com/texas-railroad-commission-declares-gas-system-98-winterized-nbc-5-dallas-fort-worth/ Fri, 04 Feb 2022 09:41:06 +0000 https://gillansinn.com/texas-railroad-commission-declares-gas-system-98-winterized-nbc-5-dallas-fort-worth/ NBC 5 investigation obtained state records that raise questions about what has been done to prepare the state’s natural gas system for winter, and whether gas supply issues could put the power grid at risk if the state faces another historic storm like the one the state experienced last February.

NBC 5 investigation obtained state records that raise questions about what has been done to prepare the state’s natural gas system for winter, and whether gas supply issues could put the power grid at risk if the state faces another historic storm like the one the state experienced last February.

The Texas Railroad Commission, which regulates natural gas companies, announced in January that it had visited thousands of gas wells and pipelines to check their readiness for the upcoming season.

In a January press release, the commission said, “…approximately 98% of the facilities visited had been winterized.

But when NBC 5 investigation filed an open record request asking the records commission detailing these site visits, the data provided by the commission seemed to raise more questions than answers about the definition of “wintered” and what these site visits actually did find.

Records show when inspectors asked oil and gas well operators, “Have you finished preparing this facility for the winter season?” 94% answered “Yes”.

But when asked specifically what they had done to prepare for winter, the answers received by the inspectors seemed less reassuring.

When oil and gas facility operators were asked, for example, “Has there been a test/simulation of weather preparedness procedures at this facility?” 61% answered “No”, “Didn’t know” or “Did not answer”.

When asked if cold barriers were used for winter protection, 55% said “no”.

And, when inspectors visited gas pipeline facilities, 63% said “No” when asked if heating systems were used for weather protection.

“In broad terms it’s one thing to say yes we’re prepared for winter, yes we’re ready. It’s a totally different thing when you go into the details of what that actually means,” said said Austin-based energy consultant Doug. Wine.

Lewin said the problem is that the Texas Railroad Commission still hasn’t enacted weatherization rules for gas installations.

Unlike the state’s Public Utility Commission, which set tough new winter standards for power plants, the railroad commission isn’t expected to draft weatherization rules for the gas industry until after this year.

Thus, when the commission sent inspectors to carry out winter visits to the sites, they had no rules to enforce.

“How do you know if they are really ready for winter if there is no standard?” Lewin asked.

“The Railroad Commission did not act so quickly. They are still working on their weatherization rules. So their rules are not in place,” ERCOT Acting CEO Brad Jones said in an interview with NBC 5 investigation.

Jones said he was concerned about the lack of rules in the gas system this winter and that ERCOT is only getting a fraction of the information it needs about gas supply right now. He said he didn’t know enough about the railroad commission’s site visits to judge how well the gas installations were winterized.

” I really do not know. This is a question I cannot answer. I know they defend their program very strongly, but I don’t know what the program looks like,” Jones said.

The leading oil and gas industry lobbyist insists there is no cause for concern.

“It’s a robust system. Billions of dollars are invested to make sure everything is running smoothly. And I’m confident that the men and women of this system are doing their job,” said Todd Staples, president of the Texas Oil and Gas Association.

When asked what standard was used to judge if they were ready when there was no state standard, Staples told NBC 5, “You know, I think the really important thing to recognize here is that every oil and gas well is designed differently. I mean, there’s no cookie-cutter approach.

Staples said facilities that told inspectors they didn’t have weatherproof heating systems or cold barriers may be facilities designed in a way that they don’t need them.

And, in a statement to NBC 5, the railroad commission said, “…every site visit is a snapshot in time…some of the sites hadn’t finished winterizing yet… .”

Texas Railroad Commissioner Jim Wright told NBC 5 that additional work has been done to winterize the facilities since site visits were completed.

“I can tell you for sure after these inspectors came out and saw these facilities that we had a lot of activity and people were sealing them more,” Wright said.

NBC 5 investigation asked Wright why the commission had not released more detailed results of the site visits, which NBC 5 investigation was to obtain through an open records request, and why the commission did not discuss the results when briefed on those visits at a public meeting in January.

On January 11, the commission’s executive director, Wei Wang, briefed the railway commissioners on the site visits. He said inspectors visited 3,700 facilities, representing more than 21,000 gas wells.

But a recording of the meeting shows that Wang did not discuss any of the findings of those visits and his briefing lasted only 58 seconds.

The commissioners did not ask Wang any questions about what the site visits had uncovered.

Wright told NBC 5 that he agrees the railroad commission could do more to be transparent.

“I think that’s a good point, and I’ve always made sure that we have transparency here at the agency,” Wright said.

Wright said he doesn’t think it’s misleading for the commission to say 98% of gas installations are winterized because he believes 98% have taken extra steps to prepare.

The question for some observers is what steps?

“So when you ask if you do weatherization, they all say yes because they think they are because there is no standard. It’s just left to each person to interpret individually,” Lewin said.

Lewin said there is evidence the gas system is not being winterized as much as it should be, pointing to what happened during a January 2 cold snap.

Data from several companies that track natural gas production showed about a 20% drop in gas supply in the Permian Basin, Lewin said. It wasn’t enough to cause problems at power plants, but enough to have some industry watchers wondering how the gas system would perform if it faced another historic storm of the storm’s magnitude. winter Uri in 2021.

During the ice storm that hit Texas this week, the railroad commission acknowledged that gas production once again declined in cold weather.

But speaking at a state press conference, Railroad Commissioner Christi Craddick said: ‘The fluctuation is really within the normal range and we are continuing to speak with operators to make sure the gas continues. to circulate.”

The Texas Oil & Gas Association released a statement saying it expected the production slump to continue on Thursday as cold and icy conditions affected gas equipment, but the industry organization said insisted that there would be plenty of gas to supply power plants and homes across the state.

Still, for some, the production cuts are an indication that more needs to be done to winterize the gas system, especially given its connection to the power grid.

“We always have a problem getting our gas supply ready for winter and especially during a winter storm Uri-type event,” said Chrysta Castaneda, an oil and gas industry lawyer and former candidate for the railway commission.

Court documents say Ross fled in a vehicle that was waiting several blocks away and was being driven by co-defendant Antoinette Deniece Mae Dobyne, 30.

Another incident was reported on February 12 at a Speedway service station in Fridley. The DOJ said Ross demanded money at gunpoint and kicked an employee in the face after ordering him to the ground. He then walked away with $700 in cash, tobacco products and lottery tickets.

Surveillance footage shows the two defendants cashing in some of the stolen lottery tickets at various gas stations.

Court documents describe another robbery at the Super 8 hotel in Brooklyn Center two days later.

Ross and another man were inside an SUV driven by Dobyne before the pair stole the Super 8 at gunpoint, taking $550. They then threw an employee to the ground and took his cell phone and car keys.

The press release says the men told the employee to flee and the victim allegedly heard multiple gunshots after fleeing the hotel. Police later recovered an unloaded cartridge from the scene.

Surveillance footage showed the robbery in progress as well as the suspects fleeing the SUV after it got stuck in a snowdrift. Central Brooklyn Police located Dobyne in the SUV and obtained a warrant to search the vehicle. Ross’ wallet and ID were found along with a gym bag filled with tobacco products.

Ross was arrested by Minneapolis police later that day during a traffic stop and a semi-automatic pistol was found on him, according to court documents. Ballistics analysis showed the firearm was the same one that was fired at the Super 8 hotel.

On Wednesday, Ross pleaded guilty to three counts of aiding and abetting interference with commerce by robbery and one count of using a firearm in a crime. of violence. Dobyne pleaded guilty to one count of aiding and abetting interference in commerce by robbery. Sentencing hearings will be set for a later date, according to the press release.

“The survey found that from 2014 until its termination as an entity in 2019, over 71% of Freedom Vote spending totaling more than $ 3.4 million was federal campaign activity.”

Two years ago, the public watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a campaign finance complaint against an Ohio-based black money group called Freedom Vote. Lawyers for the Federal Election Commission investigated and conclusively demonstrated that these violations took place. Open and close the case, right?

This month, CREW filed a new complaint – this time a lawsuit against the FEC itself. This is because despite an overwhelming body of evidence, the commissioners failed to take action against Freedom Vote. The six-member bipartisan commission found itself deadlocked last November over whether to move forward with any kind of sanction.

The case highlights structural deficiencies and the freezing pace of campaign finance enforcement. As investigators began their work, vacant positions on the commission hampered their progress. Without a quorum of commissioners to take enforcement action, Freedom Vote was able to ignore subpoenas. Once the commission was fully staffed and an investigation was completed, the even division among members left them at an impasse. Because the FEC does not release information until a case is closed, CREW notes in its lawsuit, the findings of the investigation were only revealed after one of the commissioners pressured to punish Freedom Vote has agreed to close the case.

In a statement signed by three of the FEC members, they argued that the investigation revealed “overwhelming evidence” that Freedom Vote was acting inappropriately as a political committee.

“The survey found that from 2014 until its termination as an entity in 2019, over 71% of Freedom Vote spending totaling more than $ 3.4 million was federal campaign activity,” reported they wrote.

To examine Freedom Vote’s actual campaign expenses is to step into a past political life. Their main goal at the start? Former Speaker of the House John Boehner. Their biggest recipient? US Senator Rob Portman but back in his first candidacy for re-election against Ted Strickland. And the dollar figures in question are relatively meager. FEC investigators determined that Freedom Vote had invested around $ 3 million in that 2016 race, of which about a third was in an advertisement criticizing Strickland. According to OpenSecrets, outside spending groups contributed $ 53 million to the competition.

But while its political operations were relatively small and several years old, thin threads connect the organization to the present. In 2016, he received $ 100,000 from Empowering Ohio’s Economy, the AEP-funded black money group involved in the HB 6 scandal.

According to the commissioner’s statement, the long delay and subsequent shutdown of Freedom Vote prompted some members to refuse to punish the group. But they argue that this is the wrong course of action.

“By abdicating our enforcement and disclosure obligations, unregistered groups like Freedom Vote that are formed with declared generic goals are allowed to transform into election vehicles that primarily support federal candidates during one or more election cycles. , then quietly disappear without any clue as to who funded their campaign-related activities, ”they wrote.

The CREW lawsuit calls on a judge to declare the FEC’s decision “arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion and against the law”, ordering the commissioners to return to the drawing board. In particular, CREW and the FEC commissioners who wanted to see the case continue are arguing for the disclosure of Freedom Votes backers.

“The failure of the FEC to act, despite conclusive evidence that Freedom Vote broke the law, deprives voters of their legal right to know who gave the money behind Freedom Vote’s political activities,” the president wrote. from CREW, Noah Bookbinder, in a press release. “It’s a signal to black money groups and the people who run them that they can get away with breaking the law, leaving voters in the dark. “

Channel Islands Harbor bids farewell to 49-year-old Casa Sirena hotel https://gillansinn.com/channel-islands-harbor-bids-farewell-to-49-year-old-casa-sirena-hotel/ Thu, 06 Jan 2022 14:11:42 +0000 https://gillansinn.com/channel-islands-harbor-bids-farewell-to-49-year-old-casa-sirena-hotel/ [ad_1] While the Casa Sirena hotel would have celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2022, the vacant and paralyzed hotel will be demolished and replaced by a new version.

While the Casa Sirena hotel would have celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2022, the vacant and paralyzed hotel will be demolished and replaced by a new version.

VENTURA – The Casa Sirena Hotel at Channel Islands Harbor reportedly celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2022, but demolition of the vacant hotel began on December 27, 2021; the Lobster Trap restaurant is also included in the demolition.

In a December 23, 2021 press release issued by Channel Islands Harbor, Port Department Director Michael Tripp said preparations for demolition, such as removal of hazards, communication with port residents to proximity and the connection of the homeless with useful services, was in progress throughout the month of December.

“I would like to thank the agencies in the City of Oxnard, Ventura County and the non-profit organizations that have partnered to connect the homeless people who were in the vicinity of the demolition site with much-needed services. “Tripp said in the press release. “It was an important step in moving the demolition process forward. “

As of December 27, 2021, a chain link fence has been placed around the perimeter of the hotel property, and demolition production will take approximately six months from start to finish.

“This is great news for the port, and I’m happy that a new chapter is being written for this location,” said Tripp. “I have no doubts that the demolition and development of a new hotel will invigorate the port as well as residents, visitors and local businesses.

The replacement of the two dilapidated buildings with the new Hyatt House Hotel and the restaurant next door is part of a three-project plan for the end of Peninsula Road. In addition, the marinas will be rebuilt and the protective stone retaining wall will be replaced along with the construction of the hotel and restaurant. COVID-19 has stalled the development process for about 18 months, but hotel developer Brighton Management, a property management company, has said the project will begin by the end of 2021.

The demolition is the first step in a multi-year construction project that will revitalize the entire southern end of the Channel Island Harbor peninsula. After the demolition of the Casa Sirena, the port service will repair the riprap (artificial rock used to protect the shoreline structures against scour and erosion by water, waves or ice) surrounding the southern end of the peninsula.

The original Casa Sirena hotel, built in 1972, had 197 rooms with additional space for events. The hotel recently became vacant and has turned into a place where the homeless community takes refuge. Planned development of the location will include a new Hyatt House hotel and a new restaurant up to 5,000 square feet, comparable to but no smaller than the old Lobster Trap restaurant, which was located nearby and is also being demolished. . The proposed Hyatt House will consist of 210 rooms in a 55-foot structure and occupy approximately 203,000 square feet along the Channel Islands Harbor waterfront.

According to Channel Islands Harbor, the demolition of the two structures must take place before the second and third parts of the project can begin. Facilities must be removed before rip rap can be replaced so construction equipment can reach shore to remove and replace rock. While managing the replacement of riprap from water is feasible, it would significantly increase the cost of the project. In addition, it would have a considerable negative impact on the recreational use of water in the harbor. Accordingly, the riprap must be completed before reconstruction of the marina can proceed.

It is expected that the blasting and demolition of the hotel and restaurant will take four months, and the removal and replacement of the riprap will take six months. After replacing the riprap, it will take about 20 months to open the hotel and restaurant.

If everything is executed correctly, the new hotel and restaurant is expected to open in mid-2024.

As nighttime temperatures are expected to drop into the 1930s and thousands of people sleep outside, the city of Sacramento is opening two warming centers for two nights.

The City Hall lobby, located at 915 I Street, will be open overnight Thursday and Friday from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m., according to a press release. The Hagginwood Community Center, 3271 Marysville Blvd., will also be open during these hours.

Both facilities will provide a cozy place to stay with snacks, water and toilets, the city said. Both also have a covered and protected outdoor area that can accommodate pets in kennels or crates.

“We are working with our nonprofits and others to connect with people who are homeless to make sure they know these respite centers are an option for them,” said Bridgette Dean, Department Director. community intervention of the city. “The city has around 1,100 beds in various settings for people who are homeless, but they are currently full, and the respite centers provide an alternative for the most vulnerable during this cold weather event. “

Temperatures are expected to reach a low of 35 degrees Thursday and Friday night, with a frost advisory Thursday night, according to the National Weather Service. There is also a risk of rain from Saturday evening until at least Monday, when the centers are currently closed.

Sacramento County is offering an increased number of motel vouchers due to the weather, but the county is not opening any centers, county spokeswoman Janna Haynes said.

“In his day, we weren’t opening up our lobbies (from the Department of Human Assistance), instead we were devoting our resources to a more effective and focused approach,” Haynes said.

The city’s announcement comes after several people called the city council meeting on Tuesday to demand the opening of the warming centers.

Last winter four homeless people died of hypothermia. The council voted in March to open permanent weather respite centers all year round, regardless of the weather. So far, they have opened sporadically during recent episodes of heat and cold, but have not opened permanently.

City staff are still working to open a permanent respite center, said Mary Lynne Vellinga, spokesperson for Mayor Darrell Steinberg.

About 150 people spent time in a city hall warming center in October during a major rainstorm.

ROARING SPRING – Durbin Dixon paid a moving tribute to his late wife, Joann, during a light service held in memory of local COVID-19 victims at Conemaugh Nason Medical Center on Tuesday afternoon.

Joann, 78, died late last year from COVID-19. She and Durbin were married for 54 years and had three children.

Nearly 1,500 other families will suffer similar losses this holiday season, according to Tim Harclerode, CEO of Conemaugh Nason Medical Center.

“Each of those 1,432 people was the parent or grandparent, son or daughter, niece or nephew, friend, colleague or neighbor, and we recognize that this loss and grief is unimaginable for our community, especially as we are preparing to share traditional holidays with our loved ones ”, Elizabeth Dunmore, chief medical officer of Conemaugh’s health care system, said.

According to a press release, to date 553 people have died from COVID-19 in Cambria County, 421 in Blair County, 271 in Somerset County and 187 in Bedford County.

The lighting service was held at each of Conemaugh’s four medical centers. According to a statement, hospital staff have inscribed the initials of patients and the names of their relatives on luminaires, which will then be displayed by their establishments.

“It’s nice to think about all the lives that have been lost” Rita Notestine, a nurse at Nason’s maternity ward, spoke about the event. “There is more than we would expect in our region, and much younger. It’s difficult for all the nurses here.

In Nason, the light fixtures will be moved to the chapel and will be left there until the end of the year, Harclerode said.

During the service, Harclerode described the lightings as representing stars in the sky that people can use to continue to mourn, honor, recognize, and pay homage to those lost.

“In Genesis, the luminaries are referenced as celestial bodies of light”, said Harclerode. “The sun by day and millions of stars by night. So we think of the fixtures that are filled on the table here like that. “

The healthcare community was also honored at the event.

Head nurse Michelle Buttry said dedicated healthcare workers have sacrificed so much to keep their community safe.

Nurses, respiratory therapists, doctors and other hospital workers are often the only people spending time with people who are dying in their dying days, she said.

“They shed tears together and then reassured that their loved ones are there for them”, said Buttry. “The new duty of nurses is often to put a phone to the ear of a dying patient while family members say goodbye. “

Harclerode wanted to recognize how trying the past 20 months have been for everyone in the community. The change, especially across the healthcare continuum, has been difficult to bear, causing a lot of stress, anxiety and sometimes fear, he said.

“What I can tell you now is that there is a lot of trauma, a lot of stress in the health workforce, and it is real” said Harclerode. “We can feel it, we can see it in the eyes of staff, providers, patients and family members. “

Harclerode pointed out that as the holiday season approaches, it will be possible to ask family and friends if they are okay, assess their level of anxiety, help them and d ” be a listening ear and a resource.

“I encourage you all to take the opportunity to lift each other up, dig deep and look inside yourself and see if you need to lift yourself up and if you do, reach out. hand “ said Harclerode. “Don’t be the stoic, calm person around the corner that everyone depends on and you don’t depend on anyone else for anything.”

He urged the assembled healthcare workers to “Raise your hand, ask for help, talk to someone. “

“I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you to love more deeply, to see the world through different eyes now and to appreciate more” said Harclerode. “We have the opportunity, we are still here.”
