Video of Ocean City’s North End Beach Replenishment

first_imgOCNJ Daily reader Steve Witkowski shared this video of the north end beach replenishment project. Ocean City Music Pier visitors watch work continue at Ninth Street Beach on Sunday (Dec. 13).He filmed earlier in December in the area around the Ocean City Music Pier.The video offers a good glimpse of how beach replenishment works.Ocean City received 1.6 millions of cubic yards of new sand at the south end and another 1 million at the north end. By comparison, it would take only about 1.37 million cubic yards to fill the entire Empire State Building with sand (according to the Empire State Building fact sheet).The Army Corps of Engineers announced Monday that a contractor will return to the south end to add another 323,000 cubic yards as a touch-up.last_img read more

Fighting poverty

first_imgAccording to 2008 census data, the latest national numbers available, 15 percent of Georgians live in poverty. The state ties Arizona for the 14th highest percentage of residents living in poverty in the U.S. In southwest Georgia, 39 of the regions’ 41 counties are considered persistently poor. University of Georgia Cooperative Extension will use an AmeriCorps VISTA grant to help the area’s impoverished residents get a hand up.Working in the countiesThrough the three-year grant, four full-time employees will be hired to work across southwest Georgia. Two will be hired to work on the UGA campus in Athens, Ga. Each position is charged to address specific needs in the home county. In addition, they will support Georgia 4-H by helping write grants, market programs and work with fund and volunteer development. VISTA employees will partner with UGA 4-H faculty, too, to address poverty issues and help reach underserved audiences like Hispanics in Colquitt County and military families in Houston County. Others will work to resolve poverty issues in Sumter and Lowndes counties.A generational problem“You don’t have to look very far to see the harsh realities of persistent poverty anywhere in Georgia,” said Laura Perry Johnson, 4-H program development coordinator for UGA Extension in southwest Georgia. “But, southwest Georgia disproportionately suffers from pervasive generational poverty. Extension has worked to address these issues across the state with particular emphasis in southwest Georgia. The partnership between AmeriCorps VISTA and Georgia 4-H will strengthen our ability to deliver programming that strives to break that cycle.”AmeriCorps VISTA is a national service program designed specifically to fight poverty. Founded as Volunteers in Service to America in 1965 and incorporated into the AmeriCorps network of programs in 1993, VISTA has been on the front lines in the fight against poverty in America for more than 40 years.Head Start and Upward Bound are two of VISTA’s most recognizable programs. VISTA members commit to serve full-time for a year at a nonprofit organization or local government agency, working to fight illiteracy, improve health services, create businesses and strengthen community groups. They create or expand programs designed to bring individuals and communities out of poverty.Positions filled this summerThe six current positions are open for applications. Johnson hopes to have all the positions filled by July 30. Each position includes a monthly living allowance, a relocation allowance, health insurance coverage, childcare assistance for eligible workers and a choice of an education award or monthly stipend. “The most valuable benefit,” Johnson said, “is the training, professional development and documented experience the workers gain through the experience.” Application information is available online.

Backing the blue: Owego police add three new officers

first_imgMayor Mike Baratta told 12 News Thursday the village was awarded a COPS grant, one of eight municipalities across New York State to win the prestigious grant. It will fund three new officers for three years each, and because the village won a waiver, 100% of the funds will come from the federal government. “There was a pretty big community effort, everybody made signs that said ‘I want my OPD’ and really there’s a desire in our community to have a village police department because they perform community policing and they really get to know the community,” Baratta said. OWEGO (WBNG) — Thanks to a new federal grant, the Village of Owego Police Department is more than doubling its number of full-time officers. The grant does require the village to fund the three officers for at least one additional year; however, Baratta said he hopes to keep these officers as part of the department for a long time to come. A few years ago, the village almost dissolved the police department. However, Baratta said the community’s support for the department back then and now is why it has remained successful.last_img read more

UK court rules against British Airways in pension increase case

first_imgThe High Court in London has ruled in favour of the trustees of a British Airways pension scheme in a case concerning their decision to award discretionary pension increases.The case was brought by British Airways plc in late 2013, after the Airways Pension Scheme (APS) trustees decided to award a discretionary pension increase of 0.2% on top of inflation-linked increases.The APS is the older of British Airways’ two defined benefit schemes. According to the High Court judgement, as at 31 March 2015, the scheme – which closed to new entrants in 1984 – had 27,200 members, of which more than 90% were pensioners.  The APS trustees decided to introduce a power that would allow them to grant such non-standard increases in 2011, after the statutory indexation measure was switched from the Retail Prices Index to the Consumer Prices Index. This is generally expected to mean lower pension increases for members. The trial started in October last year.On Friday the High Court ruled that the trustees’ decision to introduce the discretionary increase power in 2011 was valid, as was the decision to grant a 0.2% increase for 2013, effective 1 December 2013.“We are naturally very pleased with the clarity brought by the Court’s decision,” said the APS trustees in a statement.“We welcome the confirmation from the Court that we and our professional advisers acted appropriately in relation to those decisions.”The scheme said it does not currently intend to make further public comment “given the complex nature of the proceedings”.British Airways has the right to appeal.It said that it is “considering its position”.”Given the risks that remain within the scheme we believe the deficit contributions should be applied to improve funding and reduce risks, not improve benefits,” it said, adding that the pensioner members are ”on far more generous pensions than succeeding generations of British Airways employees”.It said the company made payments of more than £500m (€579m) towards pension fund deficits.The APS 2016 annual report put the funding deficit as at 31 March 2014 at £409m.Whether or not British Airways appeals will influence several actions the trustees are able to take in the near term, the scheme has said.For example, it may need to wait before being able to pay the additional 0.2% increase and deciding on any backdated increases for the years 2014-17, it said. The costs of the legal proceedings that APS can expect to have paid by British Airways may also depend on whether the airline appeals, and the outcome of that.The scheme has previously said that it was unlikely it could complete its March 2015 valuation until the outcome of the litigation was known. Following Friday’s judgement it said it is considering its position with its professional advisers.A hearing is scheduled for Thursday, when the High Court will deal with any “applications” that British Airways or the trustee make in relation to the litigation judgement. This could include British Airways seeking permission to appeal, according to a statement from the trustees. Note: This piece was updated on 23 May to clarify when the APS was closed to new members.last_img read more
