VANDERBURGH COUNTY REPUBLICAN PARTY UPDATES

first_imgLocation: Room 301, Civic Center Complex1 NW Martin Luther King Blvd, Evansville  Indiana Workforce Update  (from 1/25/19 post):According to a 2018 employer survey by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, 51 percent of Hoosier employers left an open job unfilled in the past year because they could not find a qualified applicant.This alarming statistic is one reason workforce development is crucial to the success of Indiana’s future economy.Over the past few years, the Indiana General Assembly has passed various initiatives aimed at improving our state’s workforce, and we are already seeing returns on those efforts. One workforce development initiative, the Next Level Jobs Program, launched by Gov. Eric Holcomb, aims to take Indiana’s workforce to the next level by focusing on the industries and jobs integral to Indiana’s 21st-century economy. Since the launch of the program, our state has seen more and more Hoosiers enroll in high-value certificate programs, and completion rates have consistently risen.

Mercer will not seek re-election to City Council at LargeOn Monday,  January 28, 2019, City Councilwoman Michelle Mercer released the following statement:It is with deep disappointment, I announce I will not seek re-election for City Council at Large. This has been a very difficult decision. A citywide campaign for an at large seat in IN’s 3rd largest city requires an extensive time commitment and effort.Personally, it is not a good time for me to be able to devote the time required to run a successful citywide re-election campaign.I will continue to devotedly serve the remainder of my term with the same deep commitment, energy, passion, and fervor that I have throughout the past three years. Serving as City council at Large is an honor and a privilege that I continue to cherish.This term has been and continues to be probably the most exciting ever in Evansville’s history to serve on City Council. Evansville is moving forward with business and economic developments and quality of life developments like never before. I am proud to be a leader in those vibrant advancements for our city.I am hopeful there will be another opportunity to seek election to public office at a better time. I thank all those who have supported me to gain this seat and continue to support me in serving out my term.Michelle MercerCity Councilwoman at Large Indiana House supports legislation to provide perinatal care for at-risk mothers:  ( from Post by VKlimczak 1/24/19)The Indiana House of Representatives voted last week (1/24/19)  in favor of legislation co-authored by State Reps. Wendy McNamara and Holli Sullivan that would provide at-risk mothers with better access to health care and reduce Indiana’s infant mortality rate. Under House Bill 1007, medical providers would check for signs of substance abuse in pregnant women through a consultation, referring women to substance abuse treatment programs as early as possible.The proposal would also establish a perinatal navigator pilot program, which would help connect expecting mothers with prenatal care and wrap-around services. The pilot program would be based on Vanderburgh County’s Pre to 3 program, which is one of the most successful Safety PIN grant programs in the state. This free program was designed to provide consistent care for families from pregnancy until the baby reaches age three.  This legislation would connect at-risk pregnant women with more obtainable resources and health care providers.House Bill 1007 now moves to the Senate for consideration.Read more herelast_img read more

First wind turbine at a Vermont ski area under construction at Bolton Valley Resort

first_imgBolton Valley Resort, a locally owned and operated family ski and snowboard area, has announced construction of a wind turbine that will be operational in late autumn. It is the first wind turbine to be constructed at a Vermont ski area.The turbine will be located near the top of the resort’s Vista Quad lift in an existing clearing adjacent to the ski patrol hut. It is designed to produce in excess of 300,000 kilowatts of power annually, the equivalent of electricity consumed by 40-to-45 Vermont households.“This is a great day for Bolton Valley and our loyal family of skiers and riders,” said Larry Williams, who owns the resort with Doug Nedde. They are Burlington business partners in Redstone Group. “Since acquiring the ski area three years ago we’ve been committed to a program of environmental stewardship in our operations. Adding wind power is a significant investment but will yield tremendous returns for our ski area and Vermont.  We want to thank our skiers and riders for their continued support, which has played a major role in our decision to continue moving forward at Bolton Valley.”The turbine, a Northwind 100 manufactured by Northern Power Systems of Barre, VT measures 121 feet in height from the ground to the top of the tower. The distance from ground to the top of the blade is 156 feet. Each blade is coated with Teflon to protect against icing. It is the same process used on turbines in the Bearing Sea. The turbine will not be obviously visible from beyond five miles away from the site.The turbine will be set up to feed excess power that is not consumed by Bolton Valley into the grid through the Vermont net metering program. It is the first turbine at a Vermont ski area, the second at a New England area and just third at a ski area in the United States.Local contractors, headed up by Alteris Renewables of Montpelier, VT, are being utilized for site preparation and for construction, which is scheduled to be completed in late autumn.Source: (September 10, 2009) BOLTON VALLEY, VT.–last_img read more

Guatemala Asks UN to Seek New Paradigm for Countering Drugs

first_img On October 2, Guatemalan President Otto Pérez requested that the UN look for new paradigms in the fight against drug trafficking, a scourge that causes thousands of deaths each year in Central America. We must “find new paradigms to fight drug trafficking, to unify efforts to confront transnational crime,” Pérez told the press, and requested the international organization to research new combat alternatives. Studies may lead to “convening an international meeting in the future so the countries can give a favorable response,” he added. In a letter sent to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on October 2, Mexico, Colombia, and Guatemala formally requested the UN to head an urgent revision on the global strategy against drugs. Pérez explained that the joint statement was made in a meeting held with his counterparts Felipe Calderón, from Mexico, and Juan Manuel Santos, from Colombia, outside of the UN General Assembly held last week in New York. “We are asking the UN Secretary General that the letter be dispersed and considered as an official document” among member countries within the organization, Pérez said. “There are three countries – Colombia, Guatemala, and Mexico – affected by drug trafficking, violence, and insecurity, some to a greater extent, others to a lesser extent, but all three countries are making efforts to make this call at a global level,” he outlined. Pérez expressed regret that “every day in Guatemala, we suffer the consequences of a problem remaining for over 50 years.” According to the head of state, out of the 6,000 deaths occurred every year in his country from violence, 42 percent are related to drug trafficking. In February, Pérez proposed to decriminalize drug trafficking, trade, and consumption, but he did not raise this issue to the UN last week. By Dialogo October 04, 2012last_img read more
