Kimmy Rogers, the current Adams County sheriff, is running for re-election in the 2016 primary as a Republican candidate.Rogers’ campaign centers on the importance of experienced leadership in a law enforcement agency, and the prevention of drug abuse and addiction through childhood education and intervention.Rogers began his law enforcement career in 1973 as an Adams County Deputy. While in that post he worked as a road officer and as an undercover drug investigator and detective. He served as Bailiff for the Adams County Common Pleas Court before running for the Sheriff’s office in 2009.During his seven years as Adams County’s Sheriff, he has dealt not only with the logistics of running the sheriff’s office, but also with the opioid epidemic that has swept across Ohio in the past decade.“There’s a lot more to being Sheriff than arresting drug dealers and thieves,” Rogers said, “Adams County is the seventh largest county in the state, and we patrol it with only 12 deputies working in three-man shifts.”Last year over 26,000 calls were logged through the county’s 911 dispatch system (for all emergency departments), among them were over 200 false alarms and 110 hang ups.“Every time an alarm goes off or someone calls 911 and hangs up, we have to send a car to check it out,” Rogers continues, that’s in addition to booking 986 offenders, patrolling the roadways, serving papers, doing hundreds of background checks, issuing conceal carry licenses, taking inmates to doctor, dentist, and hospital visits, and transporting prisoners from one detention center to another.Rogers says the most complicated and challenging part of the sheriff’s job is running the county’s notoriously overcrowded jail.“We have 38 beds in the jail, but we average 60 inmates a day,” he explains, “We have too many prisoners and not enough space to keep them, so in addition to serving over 60,000 meals a year to inmates, furnishing and washing all their clothing, sheets, and blankets, doing basic housekeeping, patrolling the roadways, and answering emergency calls, we also have to transport prisoners back and forth between jails in different counties.”While dealing with the logistics of running the jail may take up the majority of his time, Rogers says his real passion is working to educate young people about the dangers of drug abuse and addiction. “The one thing we’ve never tried on a national level is education and prevention, we’ve never targeted the problem from that angle,” he goes on, “Identifying at risk kids, and keeping them out of the system, that’s going to have a long term impact. The number of drug addicts goes up every year, what we’re doing now is not working.”Rogers says that one of his main goals is creating a drug prevention program that can be applied in every community.“Communities need to take responsibility for educating children about the danger of using drugs. We need to improve our communities if we want to see change.”Rogers works actively with schools, churches, and social organizations to raise awareness, but says he plans to extend his prevention programs even further. “Five counties will be joining us next year to take part in the Dangers of Opiates program. The opiate epidemic is the greatest problem we’re facing right now. We’ve got to do with opiates what we did with cigarettes and seat belts – education, and we’ve got to start at a young age.”“Kids need to understand before they take an opiate painkiller that good people have become drug addicted because they didn’t understand the dangers of what they were taking, they get hooked, and when they can longer get them legally, they’re forced to turn to heroin.”A program developed by Rogers and area churches, the “Junior Deputy Boot Camp” attempts to teach young people about those dangers. With the help of the Adams County Health Department, the Boot Camps not only educate, but also help to identify at-risk children. “We don’t think they’ll change the world,” Rogers says, but when the volunteers see a kid who needs help, they’ll give help.”Rogers admits that solving the opioid problem is going to take time, “It’s at all levels of society now – not a day goes by that I’m not talking about drugs, to a kid to keep them off drugs, or to an adult whose on drugs, or to a parent whose concerned about drugs, or to a mom who lost a kid to drugs, or a kid who lost a mom. If we can reach the next generation through education, we can have an impact, but we’re in for a long battle, and I intend to keep on fighting the fight.”center_img Sheriff Kimmy Rogers – Photo courtesy of the Buckeye Sheriff’s Association Reach Patricia Beech at 937-544-2391 or at [email protected] Reach Patricia Beech at 937-544-2391 or at [email protected] By Patricia Beech – [email protected] PreviousBlaze engulfs chapelNextTHE PEOPLE’S DEFENDER SENIOR PROFILE Around the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInThe pressure on the Scottish Government to provide funding to regenerate the Stranraer Waterfront has been stepped up, following the recent announcement that the McKinney Group has been appointed as preferred bidder to bring forward detailed proposals for the regeneration of the 17 acre East Pier on the Waterfront.The Scottish Finance Minister John Swinney has agreed to meet with Councillor Colin Smyth, the Chair of Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Economy, Environment and Infrastructure Committee to discuss the project.Councillor Smyth said, “The regeneration of Stranraer is a priority for the Council and the recent announcement of the preferred developer for the East Pier is a big step forward. The Council has already invested around £4m to develop Agnew Park, the West Pier and sailing facilities as part of the overall vision for the waterfront and as a Council Administration we are committed to putting in even more funding in the future.”“We have also been able to attract UK Government Funding through the Coastal Communities Fund as well as EU grants and we are now on the way to bringing private sector investment in through redevelopment of the East Pier.”“However, the weak link remains the Scottish Government. We have to  be honest and say whilst the Waterfront is an attractive opportunity, it isn’t in the centre of Glasgow or Edinburgh. Property values in the area are low compared to other parts of Scotland, so there won’t be a big queue of private companies looking to pump millions into Stranraer over night to get a big return. The project is a slow burner and there is no doubt that with a site very much on the periphery, there will be an element of market failure.”“The site itself will need several millions spent on it to bring it up to a developable standard, for example through improvements to roads and other infrastructure, and there may well need to be an element of public sector facilities built on the site. That’s where the Scottish Government needs to step up to the mark and play their part. Without Scottish Government funding, regeneration may well happen eventually but certainly not to the full potential in the timescale we want to see it happen.”“I wrote to John Swinney seeking a meeting to discuss possible Scottish Government investment and I am pleased he has agreed. Ahead of that meeting, over the remainder of the summer officials from the council and the Scottish Government will meet to discuss the project and then I will be meeting with the Minister to talk about how the Scottish Government can play a part in helping us take the project forward”.last_img read more

Climate change is making waves stronger and putting coastlines at risk

first_imgArticle published by Mike Gaworecki Adaptation To Climate Change, Climate Change, Coastal Ecosystems, Environment, Global Warming, Impact Of Climate Change, Marine Ecosystems, Ocean Crisis, Ocean Warming, Oceans, Oceans And Climate Change, Research According to research published in the journal Nature Communications this month, the energy of ocean waves has grown over the past seven decades, which could have significant implications for coastal communities and ecosystems.The energy in ocean waves is transmitted from the wind. As the upper ocean has warmed, wind patterns have been affected globally, resulting in stronger ocean waves. The researchers behind the Nature Communications study say they found a long-term trend of wave power increasing globally in direct association with historical warming of the ocean surface.The researchers say their results show that global wave power could be used as an indicator of global warming similar to how atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration levels, global sea level rise, or global surface atmospheric temperatures are used now. Global climate change is impacting Earth’s oceans in a number of ways, from higher water temperatures and rising sea levels to acidification and oxygen depletion.Now, scientists have reported another change to oceans  wrought by global warming: According to research published in the journal Nature Communications this month, the energy of ocean waves has grown over the past seven decades, which could have significant implications for coastal communities and ecosystems.The energy in ocean waves is transmitted from the wind. As the upper ocean has warmed, wind patterns have been affected globally, resulting in stronger ocean waves. The researchers behind the Nature Communications study say they found a long-term trend of wave power increasing globally in direct association with historical warming of the ocean surface.“For the first time, we have identified a global signal of the effect of global warming in wave climate,” Borja G. Reguero, a researcher in the Institute of Marine Sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz in the United States and the study’s lead author, said in a statement. “In fact, wave power has increased globally by 0.4 percent per year since 1948, and this increase is correlated with the increasing sea-surface temperatures, both globally and by ocean regions.”Previous analyses of the global wave climate, or how wave characteristics change over time, have tended to focus on historical trends in mean and extreme values for parameters such as wave height, Reguero and co-authors note. Wave heights have increased in recent decades, especially at higher latitudes in both hemispheres.“Satellite-based altimeter measurements from 1985 to 2008 reveal increases of 0.25% per year for the 90th wave height percentile and 0.50% per year for the 99th percentile, in both hemispheres,” the researchers write in the study. “[D]ata also show significant increases in extreme wave heights at the high latitudes of the southern hemisphere, 0.25–0.9% per year for the 90th percentile in the north Atlantic and the north Pacific, and decreases in the mid-latitudes.” In addition to changes in wave heights, wave periods have also increased, and the direction of waves has shifted in some cases, such as in the southern ocean and in the north Atlantic.Changes in global wave energy have received less attention, the researchers say, “particularly in the context of climate change.” They add that wave power has not been studied as a climate change indicator yet, but they found that “it can potentially characterize the long-term behavior of the global wave conditions better than wave heights.”Study co-author Inigo J. Losada, director of research at the Environmental Hydraulics Institute at Spain’s University of Cantabria, said that the study results show that global wave power could be used as an indicator of global warming similar to how atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration levels, global sea level rise, or global surface atmospheric temperatures are used now.Understanding how global wave power responds to oceanic warming also has important implications for adapting coastlines to the impacts of climate change on infrastructure, coastal cities, and small islands. Wave power is a “key driver of coastal change and flooding,” the authors of the study write, and as wave energy increases, the effects will become more profound.For instance, as sea levels rise, more wave energy will reach shore, exacerbating impacts to shorelines. But regional differences in upper-ocean warming will mean that wave power changes are different in each ocean basin. This variability in wave energy across regions and at different times of the year are most apparent in the heightened flooding and erosion risks to Pacific coastlines during El Niño events, “which are explained by our [wave power] patterns,” according to the authors. “Regionally, changes in the extratropical generation areas of the Southern Ocean and North Pacific, where the [wave power] is more severe, should receive special attention.“Our results indicate that risk analysis neglecting the changes in wave power and having sea level rise as the only driver may underestimate the consequences of climate change and result in insufficient or maladaptation,” co-author Fernando J. Méndez, associate professor at Universidad de Cantabria, said in a statement.CITATION• Borja G. Reguero, Iñigo J. Losada, & Fernando J. Méndez. (2019).

And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsoredlast_img read more

Getting the Most Out of Your Advisory Board

first_imgRelated Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… audrey watters Tags:#How To#start No matter how carefully you build your founding team, questions will come up as you start your business that will make you want to turn elsewhere for advice. And so it’s good to have a carefully selected group of people you can turn to for help: your Advisory Board. As Bernard Lumm notes in “Startup 101, “You may have any number of advisers – friends and family – who you turn to informally for advice and who expect nothing in return except your friendship. But we use Advisers here with a capital “A” to denote someone with an official, compensated relationship with the company.”Who to AskWhen building an Advisory Board, you want to select people who bring knowledge and credibility and who have the time and willingness to help. It’s important the members of your Advisory Board have some background in your startup’s field, and it’s good to pick people who have succeeded as entrepreneurs. The members of your Advisory Board should also be able to speak with experience to the challenges and the successes of being executives. In other words, your Advisory Board is not made up of your attorney and your accountant. The latter, you pay for their professional advice. And while you can offer members of your Advisory Board somecompensation, their primary role is to offer mentorship, not to take on a fiduciary responsibility. As you build the Advisory Board, try to draw from areas in which your startup could use the most advice. You want to balance the board and have its makeup compliment your founding team.You can approach potential members informally, but you should put together a formal, written agreement to finalize the deal. Lumm recommends this be a formal invitation letter that can also include your business plan executive summary, the Advisory Board’s objectives and focus, and expectations for the length and level of commitment and involvement.Seek AdviceAsk good questions that take advantage of the expertise your Advisory Board offers. Before a formal meeting with your Advisory Board, send them a summary of the issues you are contending with. This way, everyone is prepared at the meeting to discuss the key questions at hand. (And you can listen to their advice, which is the point.)Follow up and follow throughIt’s good to maintain communication with your Advisory Board beyond just your face-to-face meetings. After a board meeting, you can follow up with members, indicating specifically how their advice will shape your strategy.Taking care as you shape your Advisory Board will pay off in the long run as you will be able to work with people that can bring credibility, insight, and experience to your startup. And as your startup matures, Advisory Board members can also make good candidates for more formal positions, as in your Board of Directors.center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

What to Expect From Central Michigan on Thursday Night

first_imgI did a Q&A with Central Michigan beat writer Nate Schneider. He writes for the Morning Sun and had a few questions for me as well which I answered here. This is what he had to say about OSU’s first opponent on Thursday.1. Central Michigan isn’t a team most OSU folks know a lot about. What Big 12 (or Power Five) team would you compare them to in terms of style and what they’re trying to do on offense or defense?I’d say a strong comparison offensively for Central Michigan in terms of style would be what Charlie Weis’ Kansas teams tried to do with a pro-style attack that relies on a strong running game to set up the pass.While previous head coach Dan Enos departed for Arkansas, the Chippewas have not changed any of the terminology or schemes as they retained offensive coordinator Morris Watts and he is slated to call plays this season. The only area where CMU coaches and players have pointed to as being altered is in the stressing of a more up-tempo play-calling system.Seeing the Chippewas go into some no-huddle drives isn’t out of the question. As far as defense, before this year I would have told you Texas Christian or Auburn as CMU ran a 4-2-5 setup from 2012 through 2014. But with new defensive coordinator Greg Colby on board, the Chippewas plan on running a more traditional 4-3-4 base such as Alabama.Schematic changes are not very common from one year to the next after leading the conference in total defense, but that is what Central Michigan is doing following a MAC-best 2014 output. With a new head coach and a new defensive coordinator, it will be interesting to see how CMU’s philosophies on both sides of the ball unfold against an actual opponent.2. Who are the three best players on CMU and why?After an FBS bowl record-setting performance on Christmas Eve in the Popeyes Bahamas Bowl, you have to throw quarterback Cooper Rush into the mix. He has made 23 starts over the last two seasons and took a major step forward last year. Over the weekend, Rush was voted a team captain by teammates so it’s clear he has the command and respect of the locker room. He is poised for a breakout year in the Mid-American Conference as long as the playmakers around him provide enough help.A second player to look out for is senior center Nick Beamish, also voted a team captain. Beamish is entering his fourth year as a starter and is on the Rimington Award watch list for a second straight season. He has to be considered the preseason favorite to be All-MAC first team at his position.Lastly, junior safety Tony Annese has been a ball hawk ever since joining the starting lineup late in the 2013 campaign as a redshirt freshman. In fact, Annese recorded identical 34-yard interception returns for touchdowns in his first two career starts. He has continued to blossom ever since and is getting some national recognition on the Thorpe Award watch list. Annese and fellow safety, senior Kavon Frazier, form an experienced duo in the back end of the defense.3. I believe I read that CMU hasn’t hosted a Power Five team in quite a while. How big of a deal is this game to fans, players and the school itself? What will the atmosphere be like?The last Power Five team Central Michigan hosted was Syracuse last year,[1. Ed. note: Kyle is a moron.] but with that 40-3 drubbing it’s a game the Chippewas would rather forget. Central Michigan also hosted Michigan State in 2012, another contest that had a lopsided outcome.The game against MSU saw a capacity crowd of 35,127 at Kelly/Shorts Stadium. With East Lansing only an hour down the road, it was an easy trip to Mount Pleasant for Spartans fans. Not exactly quite as easy of travel for the Oklahoma State faithful, but it is clear CMU fans are going to show up in large numbers and I’m sure the Cowboys will also bring in a good crowd of their own.It’s hard to predict an attendance, but it wouldn’t shock me if this game drew 30,000-plus. A season opener and national television definitely add to the fun atmosphere of this one. The CMU community is already behind the John Bonamego era in a way it never embraced Coach Enos.4. How has the program changed from last year to this year with the head coaching switch?Like I said, many of the philosophies have remained the same and a good portion of the assistant coaching staff also remains intact. I’d say there are more similarities than differences, but there is certainly a different feel to Bonamego.This is his dream job. He is having the time of his life and it shows, despite battling tonsil cancer throughout the summer. It seems to be a more positive and inclusive environment for the players, the students, the community and even media. The press actually feels welcome at practice and don’t have to wait 45 minutes for the head coach to take a shower, which was the kind of power play stuff that was occurring in years past.5. Cooper Rush is QB1. What is his personality like and what does he do well on the field? Where is he susceptible to making mistakes?When Rush was a redshirt freshman, he was clearly afraid to say anything aside from calling the play in the huddle. He didn’t want to ruffle any feathers, step out of turn or anger anyone with something that might be construed the wrong way. You could see him coming into his own last year as he developed as a leader and felt more like a veteran.Now, he is fully comfortable as a captain. He is way more talkative these days and as an Academic All-MAC representative the last two seasons, Rush is making CMU fans proud off and on the field. He sees the field very well and goes through his progressions when the first option doesn’t work out. Rush set many MHSAA records while in high school at Lansing Catholic Central and he’s proven to be worthy of Central Michigan’s scholarship as he is a very cerebral and accurate quarterback whether it be underneath, intermediate or deep throws.The question becomes whether the wide receivers around him can help Rush reach the next level, because it’s clear he’s ready. If you had to pinpoint one area where he’s struggled the last two years, it is with missing sitting linebackers over the middle. As a redshirt freshman he probably had six passes intercepted in that fashion where he didn’t anticipate a defender underneath.He improved greatly in that area last year, but still managed to let it creep in every once in a while. Rush can also occasionally hold onto the ball a smidge too long, which led to some unnecessary sacks his first two years as starter.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.
