Tuesday 12 April 2011 8:17 pm THE NUMBER of retailers at risk of going under shot up for the second consecutive month in March, according to insolvency firm RSM Tenon.The number of companies deemed to be at high risk of insolvency jumped by four per cent in March, compared to the month before, and jumped two per cent compared to this time last year.The development comes following the worst fall in sales since records began in 1996, with a drop of 1.9 per cent in March compared to the same period last year, findings by the British Retail Consortium show.More than 8,000 retailers were shown to be in danger of going under last month, according to RSM Tenon’s ‘traffic light report’.Head of recovery Carl Jackson said: “We may technically be out of recession, but it is clear that the high street is struggling at the moment. Retailers are suffering as their costs soar with increased fuel and manufacturing costs and shoppers remain thrifty with their purchases. It appears people just aren’t spending unless they have to – and who can blame them as they struggle with the cost of increased tax burdens and rising inflation.” Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

But Stuart Broad and James Anderson have proved the doubters wrong with their carefully managed workload and fitness. The two have constantly done well, taking England to newer heights.

General Convention 2015, Rector Shreveport, LA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC The core work of Appleton Episcopal Ministries’ Freedom School is to help struggling first-through-third-graders improve their reading. A 2015 Annie E. Casey Foundation study found that 60 percent of Georgia’s fourth-graders were not proficient readers. Photo: Appleton Episcopal MinistriesEditor’s note: This story is part of a series profiling the Episcopal Church’s recent work planting new churches and other faith communities. Other stories about recipients of grants from the Episcopal Church’s Genesis Advisory Group on Church Planting can be found here.[Episcopal News Service] Julie Groce works for a ministry of the Diocese of Atlanta that began as an orphanage for the daughters of Confederate soldiers, and she is old enough to remember the days of separate drinking fountains for whites and blacks.It thus makes sense to her that Appleton Episcopal Ministries, which she says has been evolving since its founding in 1870, has begun a Children’s Defense Fund Freedom School. Fifty African-American first-, second- and third-graders from the Macon, Georgia, area attended the school’s inaugural 2017 summer session.The school, an intensive six-week summer reading and enrichment program for children living in poverty who need to improve their reading skills, “kind of turns all that Confederate stuff on its ear,” Groce told Episcopal News Service.Sister Elenor, left, and Sister Sophie stand at the entrance to Appleton’s Beckwith Chapel in 1915. Appleton Episcopal Ministries, in the Diocese of Atlanta, began as an orphanage for the daughters of Confederate soldiers. Photo: Appleton Episcopal MinistriesOne of the earliest orders of deaconesses in the Episcopal Church, the Order of St. Katharine, formed at the Appleton Church Home, as the orphanage was first known.Groce believes that the deaconesses “would be so proud that this is what we’re doing and this is who we are serving, because we are still serving children in need and God doesn’t care what those children look like.”The Rev. John Thompson-Quartey, the diocese’s canon for ministry, said that Appleton’s founders are “spinning in their graves, for good reasons.” The organization, he said, has not lost its vision of “being a refuge or a safe haven for poor children. The focus is always on children.”The Freedom School will have its second session this summer from June 14 to July 25. This year’s students will read culturally appropriate books that explore history, civic engagement and social justice. They will also have art, science, dance, music and swimming classes, as well as field trips. College and graduate interns, enrichment teachers and nearly 100 volunteers make the school work.In 2017, Freedom Schools served more than 12,225 children at 173 program sites in 89 cities and 27 states including Washington, D.C., according to the Children’s Defense Fund website.Appleton received a $20,000 Episcopal Church Mission Enterprise Zone grant for the school. It also gets money from the Diocesan Ministry Innovations Fund and the USDA Summer Feeding Program, a grant from Appleton itself, and donations from individuals, churches and clergy groups. Classes are held in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and the St. Francis Art Center, both in Macon.There’s more going on at the school than simply helping struggling students read better. It’s about starting to connect people in an area that has had troubled race relations for decades.“The primary inspiration for Freedom School was that it was automatically going to be a prospect of racial reconciliation,” Groce said, adding that organizers thought uniting the churches and the neighborhood around helping poor and struggling students might be a place to start mending that part of Georgia. There is still the aftermath of slavery and all of its modern-day heritage to confront, and there is still economic and de facto segregation in Macon, she said.“It allows us the ability to have some reconciliation begin in a gentle manner, and then as you interface with parents, we take it to another level,” she said. “And then the community takes it to another level, and it’s not perfect but it sure is a start.”If the Freedom School is providing connections in the community, then the people who form Appleton Episcopal Ministries are all finding wider connections. “Now we are part of this big thing,” Groce said, referring to the churchwide support represented in the grant, as well as the network of mission developers that Appleton joined when it received its Mission Enterprise Zone grant. “It is very inspirational to all of us and it reminds us daily, weekly, monthly of our Episcopal heritage, our commitment to love and to do social justice and just to do God’s work in the world.”Some students in Appleton Episcopal Ministries’ 2017 session of its Children’s Defense Fund Freedom School learn to play chess. Photo: Appleton Episcopal MinistriesAppleton Episcopal Ministries operates out of the Appleton Church Home’s original 1870 building. The building is now also the parish hall for St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, in the diocese’s Macon Convocation. There are 10 congregations in the convocation, most of them small in membership and scattered across the mainly rural southern end of the diocese.An endowment helps defray some of Appleton’s expenses. Since 2014, each congregation has had a seat on Appleton’s board. They pay an annual percentage of their income to support Appleton, and all the congregations in the diocese are required by canon to contribute each year. Some of those contributions are given back in the form of program grants.The aim is for the programs supported by the grants to eventually become self-sufficient, so they no longer need Appleton’s help. “We act as a multiplier,” Groce said, partnering with other denominations and organizations to help children in need.“My job is to serve those parishes and the Appleton board by going to those parishes and saying, ‘If money were no object, what would you like to do in community ministry?’” she said. She then helps those congregations find the resources to do that work. “I have a super cool job,” Groce added.The idea for a Freedom School came after Groce and others in the diocese saw the success of such a summer program run by the diocese’s Emmaus House in Atlanta. Groce knew, however, that bringing the program to Macon would require outside help.“It costs a lot of money, and there are lots of moving parts, and it is not for the fainthearted,” she said. “What made Freedom School different for us was that, unlike targeted parish programming, this was a program we did as Appleton overall, all of us as partners.”It was the prospect of that new partnership, and all the ways Appleton was already working to foster such relationships, that caught the attention of the Episcopal Church’s Genesis Advisory Group on Church Planting, the Rev. Thomas Brackett, Episcopal Church manager for church planting and mission development, told ENS.“They are curating community connections and creating partnerships that most Episcopal churches don’t even have the vision to create, much less sustain,” Brackett said. “They’re not giving money away as a one-off because somebody demonstrates need. They are strategically giving away money to partners who share their vision for creating community.”A student at Appleton Episcopal Ministries’ 2017 session of Freedom School paints a sea turtle. Enrichment activities reinforce the school’s efforts to help students become better readers and explore history, civic engagement and social justice. Freedom School scholars are encouraged to make a difference in their families, their community and the world. Photo: Appleton Episcopal MinistriesBrackett said the Genesis Group was intrigued by Appleton’s pledge that “the leadership there is fully supported by the diocese in the work of bringing area congregations together to consolidate their energies in engaging people who, historically, would never come to the Episcopal Church.”They are engaging those people, not to invite them to come to church, but to minister with them in their communities, he explained. It is not that they aren’t welcome to come to church. Instead, the Appleton group hopes that “as they develop these ministries, they’ll spin off new worshipping communities as well, each with their own unique character,” Brackett said.Appleton’s grant application not only outlined what the goal was, but also spelled out what the strategies for success would be.“We could tell from the very beginning that these people were going to make it with or without funding,” Brackett said. “They were basically inviting us as partners to come learn from what they’re doing.”Atlanta Bishop Rob Wright gave Appleton a glowing recommendation, Brackett said, and told the Genesis Group that the diocese was lucky to have the Episcopalians in the Macon Convocation as part of the diocese. Many of them were not born into the Episcopal Church, but they chose to become Episcopalians. Plus, Brackett said, “They’re dealing with people that we don’t normally have come through our doors, African-American, Latino folks, and they’re doing ministry as shaped by community leaders.”Groce said Freedom School’s first year taught lessons to everyone who helped run the program. It “sensitized all of us to the absolute fragility of the lives of so many children that we had never reached,” she said.Moreover, while the session hosted just 50 children, Groce said the influence is rippling far beyond them. “We impacted three elementary schools outside the traditional Episcopal circle, and those are seeds that are now planted that continue to grow beyond our tiny little field.”– The Rev.

Home Commentary Commentary: Playing the Part of the Political Pawn, Yet Again Facebook Twitter After 3 years of listening to farmers and 3 days of floor debate, the U.S. House voted down a new Farm Bill. The surprise defeat had nothing to do with what was in the bill, but had to do with political grandstanding by a group of 30 lawmakers known as the Freedom Caucus. This small, radical group has made immigration their one and only issue and will block any legislation until the House deals with their issue. House Speaker Paul Ryan has also engaged in some political grandstanding by forcing a Republican-only Farm Bill through committee, insuring he would have no Democratic support on the floor. A more bipartisan approach might have been able to neutralize the impact of the Freedom Caucus. By Gary Truitt – May 20, 2018 So now farmers face the prospect of no new NAFTA agreement, no new deal with China to avert a 25% tariff on U.S. soybeans, no action of making E-15 saleable year round, no permanent fix to the WOTUS rule, and no new Farm Bill with a safety net to help producers manage risk. The current Farm Bill is set to expire on September 30. The defeat in the House makes it likely that deadline will not be reached. SHARE Today, as farmers face critical financial hardships, overreaching government regulations, and international trade disputes that take profits out of their pockets, limit their growth potential, and threaten their future, Washington is more interested in political posturing and social ideology than in taking action to address the needs of American agriculture. Facebook Twitter Previous articleU.S. and China Trade War on Hold; China Pledges to Buy More U.S. ProductsNext articleIndiana Farm Leaders Support House Farm Bill Gary Truitt In the last election, we saw that rural America can have an impact on the political process. We need that kind of attitude now to insist that we are no longer ignored.By Gary Truitt SHARE The history of American agriculture is full of examples of the federal government taking action to threaten the financial livelihoods of farmers. For example, there was the tax of 1791. The so-called “whiskey tax” was the first tax imposed on a domestic product by the newly formed federal government and was intended to generate revenue for the war debt incurred during the Revolutionary War. The tax applied to all distilled spirits. Farmers of the western frontier were accustomed to distilling their surplus rye, barley, wheat, corn, or fermented grain mixtures into whiskey. These farmers resisted the tax. President Washington sent in the army to force compliance with the tax. Fast forward to the next century and to the financial crisis of 1873. Falling crop prices, increases in railroad fees to ship crops, and Congress’s reduction of paper money in favor of gold and silver devastated farmers’ livelihoods and caused the birth of the Grange movement. Grangers gave their support to reform-minded groups such as the Greenback Party, the Populist Party, and, eventually, the Progressives. While the movement had many notable accomplishments, their two main objectives — better regulation of railroads and grain elevators — went largely unrealized. And, let’s not forget the Carter grain embargo in 1980, which took a robust farm economy and turned it upside down — virtually overnight. Farmers had been promised an “on-time” delivery of the Farm Bill by GOP leadership. This in contrast to the last the last Farm Bill which was voted down by the House over the issue of food stamp reform. While there have been changes in the House and the White House in the past 4 years, that has not changed is the willingness to ignore the needs of agriculture and use farmers as political pawns.

WYXZ-TV(NEW YORK) — Dozens of vehicles piled up on a snowy Michigan road on Friday, sending three people to the hospital with minors injuries, authorities said.Early estimates showed 40 to 50 vehicles, including semitrailers, involved in the crash on I-94 in southern Michigan, according to Jackson County Emergency Management.Traffic on both the eastbound and westbound lanes stopped completely, and drivers were asked to find alternate routes, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said.A third nor’easter?Meanwhile, along the East Coast, residents are still digging out from the second nor’easter to hit the region in a week.There were still 435,000 customers without power in the Northeast on Friday morning, including 169,000 in Massachusetts and 141,000 in New Jersey.The latest computer models continue to be split on whether there is going to be a third nor’easter. Most models agree there is going to be a storm system moving through the South, with severe storms Saturday into Sunday along the Gulf Coast from Arkansas to Florida.These storms could produce damaging winds and some hail, and we cannot rule out tornadoes.As the storm moves east, the models split.American modelThe American model keeps the storm much larger and colder, showing a chance of snow from St. Louis to most of Kentucky into Nashville, Tennessee, and into the southern Appalachian Mountains on Sunday evening.The storm will redevelop Monday morning off the Mid-Atlantic coast and bring snow from Washington, D.C. to New York City.By Monday afternoon, the coastal low will strengthen — similar to the storm we just had — and move up the coast, bringing heavy snow for most of the I-95 corridor from Washington, D.C. to Boston, and into Maine.European modelThe European model continues to disagree Friday morning, showing a much weaker storm system along the Carolina coast on Monday with mostly rain during the day and evening.By Monday night, the storm system moves off the Carolina coast and brings no precipitation to the Northeast, according to the European model.Cold is comingRegardless of the track of the storm, both the European and American models agree that cold, February-like weather will continue into the middle of March.One of the coldest days will be next Wednesday, when wind chills will drop into the single digits and teens from the Midwest into the Northeast. Even from the Tennessee River Valley to the Carolinas, wind chills will be in the 20s Wednesday morning. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Drew Angerer/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a slew of new safety reforms for limos and large passenger vehicles, outright banning stretch limos and adding a number of regulatory reforms.These reforms come three months after a limo crash in upstate New York led to the death of the driver and 19 passengers.That crash, which took place near the town of Schoharie, was the deadliest transportation crash in the U.S. since 2009.Cuomo released a statement about the October 2018 crash alongside the new reforms, calling it “a horrific tragedy that shocked this state to its very core.”“We are advancing reforms that will give aggressive new powers that will allow authorities to take dangerous vehicles off the roads without delay, hold unscrupulous businesses accountable and increase public safety in every corner of New York,” Cuomo said.The changes ban “remanufactured limousines,” which include stretch limos and stretch SUV-type vehicles, from operating in New York state.Drivers will have to have a special form of a commercial license that notes they are able to operate vehicles holding eight or more passengers.The reforms specify penalties for removing out-of-service stickers issued by Department of Transportation inspectors, creates an inspection fee, and allows the DOT and DMV to seize suspended license plates, among other regulatory changes.Some of the new reforms apply to vehicles beyond just stretch limos, as it prohibits U-turns for larger vehicles on all roads in the state — without specifying what qualifies as “larger vehicles” — and gets rid of the seatbelt exemption that had been in place for limos, buses, taxis and school buses.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
