Some of the hailstones were the size of golf balls.Faculty, students and, in some cases, students’ parents received texts and phone calls alerting them to the weather situation.“The system was activated by the TCU police department at the request of our Emergency Management and Business Continuity Director,” said Kathryn Cavins-Tull, the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs.The decision was made after contacting both the National Weather Service and the emergency center in Fort Worth, Cavins-Tull said.A Snapchat image by Tommy Bruhn, a TCU environmental science major.

Turpin refused to talk to officers at the scene, police said.Turpin was released from TCU’s football team on Tuesday after reports that he was arrested March 15 in Las Cruces, New Mexico and charged with battery of a household member, criminal damage to a household property under $1,000 and interference with communications, according to the arrest affidavit.Turpin pleaded not guilty to battery charges and household property damage.

Sheriff’s Captain Reed Talks Coffee, Cameras and ‘Broken Windows’

first_img Subscribe Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Sheriff’s Captain Christopher Reed of the Altadena Station meets with local residents.As with many coffee klatches, the hottest topic at the Coffee Gallery in Altadena last night was movies. But not favorite flicks or favorite stars. It was neighbors hosting film shoots, and film companies taking over neighborhoods.The Altadena Sheriff’s Station and Captain Christopher Reed held a “Coffee with the Captain” meeting last night and while movies took over a lot of the conversation, Captain Reed and four deputies handled subjects as varied as new deployments, horse and foot patrols and policing policy.A number of residents spoke out against both film companies and local homeowners being good neighbors and honoring the specifics of film permits by the LA Film Office. Reed assured the neighbors that local sheriff’s deputies are aware of the pitfalls of neighborhood shooting, but also emphasized that in a busy filming community like Altadena, it’s the responsibility of film companies to enforce matters like parking violations and the like.Captain Reed also announced a new deployment strategy in the area with regard to deputies. As he explained, the department formerly deployed three two-person teams on the night and swing shifts. Now, there is one two-person car and four one-person cars, putting a total of five cars out on the street.Speaking of cars, the Altadena Sheriff’s Station also deploys two Ford Explorers as part of the patrol fleet (through a grant from Supervisor Mike Antonovich) that feature 360-degree license plate readers, allowing the vehicles to automatically view, read and enter every license plate of every car they pass on the road.“Big Brother is definitely here,” Captain Reed joked.Reed also discussed the idea of “Broken Window” policing, which is reacting to every small violation, in order to prevent more serious violations. Former LAPD Chief Bill Bratton was a strong proponent of this type of law enforcement.“But,” said Captain Reed, “Ever since Ferguson and Baltimore, a lot of cops have decided they’re going to shut it down, it’s something called ‘de-policing,’ which I had never heard of. and which is something Sheriff (Jim) McDonnell does not favor, obviously.“So, even though our crime is down,” he continued, “believe it or not our arrests are up, and to be honest with you, they are for more minor offenses. That term “de-policing is something I don’t want to see here. I tell our officers, ‘Be the kind of officer you want patrolling your neighborhood when your wife, parents or husband is home alone.’”“We don’t want to go overboard, but if you’re a known gang member, and your tail light is out, my deputies are going to talk to you.”In addition, the Sheriff’s Station recently began bike and foot patrols on Lake and Lincoln Avenues, and said Reed, those will be continued at least once a month. The Sheriff’s office also utilizes a mounted horse patrol when necessary.Finally, asked about the things that community members could do to make Sheriff’s deputies jobs easier, the officers all agreed, “Call right away.”“Don’t wait until the suspicious person you’re watching walks out of a house with a TV set,” said Captain Reed. 0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Make a comment Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

That goes toward the approximately $14.1 billion damage overall to property and crops caused by 5,710 tornadoes hitting every state except Alaska, including Washington, D.C. In each of Alabama, Texas, Mississippi, and Illinois, twisters wreaking more than $1 billion in damages.But the frequency of hits did not necessarily dictate the distribution of funds.FEMA’s records show that just two states received nearly 50% of the agency’s disaster relief funds during this period, with unlikely Massachusetts leading the way, according to the report.The big takeaway for homeowners is this: Value Penguin data journalist Andrew Hurst says that “while the federal government’s efforts to repair tornado damage pose a multibillion-dollar financial commitment, data from insurers don’t indicate that affected property owners will face huge premium increases if a storm destroys their homes.”In the 13 states that are most prone to tornadoes, homeowners generally don’t face punitive increases to their premiums after a catastrophic loss. Insurance rates increased by an average of 8% following a total loss, according to the report.In other words, rate information shows an average per-year increase of only $180 in the states most likely to experience the greatest number of tornadoes.He adds that, based on the findings, FEMA Funding is not an adequate system to rely upon in case of a natural disaster.”If you are preparing for the upcoming Tornado season, double-check your home insurance coverage—and make sure your insurance will allow you to recover completely after a storm,” Hurst advises.”While most homeowners can be assured that their rates won’t rise precipitously after a tornado, if not adequately insured, [homeowners] may face hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage [they] may need to pay out of pocket.”To view his full report, visit: Subscribelast_img read more

Filed by Akriti Agarwal and Lakshya Purohit, the petition highlights that both the Supreme Court and the Kerala High Court have passed the similar directions for the usage of A4 size paper for all the pleadings before them. The petition states that: ‘It is an undeniable fact that currently in most judicial & quasi-judicial bodies functional in India, an exclusively designed size of paper namely the Foolscap/Legal Size Paper is being used for pleadings. However, in some high courts, district courts and quasi-judicial bodies, an indefinite combination of both Foolscap/Legal Size Paper and A4 Size Paper are being used. This disorganized and unreasonable practice of using different papers at different places is not just creating hindrance for people in accessing justice both inside and outside the courts, but it also renders the entire legal system non-uniform and arbitrary.’ It is the case of the Petitioners that the lack of uniformity on usage of A4 size papers among the courts in Delhi has created accessibility barriers which violates the principle of equality before law, as enshrined under Article 14 of the Constitution. It is also pointed out by the Petitioners that they have already made a request, through a letter dated 04.03.2020, to the Respondent to issue direction for usage of A4 Size sheets and double side printing in the High Court of Delhi and in all its subordinate courts but no action has been taken to implement the same till date. The Petitioners argue that: ‘the usage of single side printing of legal size paper/Foolscap paper in comparison to double side printing of A4 Size Paper is detrimental to the health of our environment as there would be more cutting of trees, more wastage of paper and more degradation of the environment. To prevent such serious damage to the environment, it is necessary and emergent to mandate the usage of the A4 Size Paper in this Hon’ble Court and in all its subordinate courts.’ The present petition is filed through Advocate Paras Jain.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Finger Lakes moves slowly forward on path to National Heritage Area

first_img Your Economy & Development news is made possible with support from: Tagged: finger lakes, ithaca, kirsten gillibrand, national heritage area, national park service, tom reed, tourism Your Arts & Culture news is made possible with support from: center_img ITHACA, N.Y. — The Finger Lakes has moved a step closer on the long road to becoming a National Heritage Area, a designation that would help preserve local history and heritage, conserve natural resources, boost tourism and come with economic benefits. This week, the Senate passed legislation that authorizes the National Park Service to conduct a feasibility study.Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand announced Wednesday that the Finger Lakes National Heritage Area Study Act passed the Senate as a provision in the Natural Resources Management Act. With this legislation, the National Park Service is authorized to begin a feasibility study to determine if the Finger Lakes region — including Cayuga, Chemung, Cortland, Livingston, Monroe, Onondaga, Ontario, Schuyler, Seneca, Steuben, Tioga, Tompkins, Wayne, and Yates counties — has the resources and local capacity to be designated a National Heritage Area.“I’m very excited that my legislation to begin the process of designating the Finger Lakes Region as a National Heritage Area has passed the Senate,” Gillibrand said in a news release. “The Finger Lakes Region is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places in our state, and it is one of our country’s great historical and cultural treasures. A National Heritage Area designation would help further conserve and protect the region’s natural resources and attract even more people from all over the world to the Finger Lakes. I was proud to fight for this provision, and will continue work with my House colleagues to ensure that this legislation is passed into law.”(Photo courtesy of Bill Davis)But as Peter Samuel, manager of the National Heritage Program in the Northeast Region explained Wednesday, the act passing the Senate is just one step in a long federal process. The National Resources Management Act will now move to the House and then have to be signed by the president. After that, a study can begin, and that process could take two or more years, Samuel said. The study will look at the significance of the region to see that there is “no other place in the country that could tell that story,” Samuel said.For some perspective, the bill that holds the provision for the Finger Lakes study also contains two new National Heritage Areas, the Susquehanna Valley and Appalachian Forest, and if the bill passes through as expected, those would be the first designations in nine years, Samuel said. Along with Gillibrand and Congressman Tom Reed, the Finger Lakes Tourism has for years been pushing for designation, which will help elevate the region. Cynthia Kimble, president of the Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance said she believes the Finger Lakes region deserves a spot on the national list.There are currently 49 National Heritage Areas in the United States and four others in New York, including Niagara Falls, the Hudson River Valley, the Erie Canalway and Champlain Valley. The National Park Service defines National Heritage Areas as places where “historic, cultural, and natural resources combine to form cohesive, nationally important landscapes.” National Heritage Areas differ from national parks because they are large lived-in landscapes. When President Ronald Reagan signed the first National Heritage Area into law in 1984, he called them “a new kind of national park.”Flickr PhotoBecoming a National Heritage Area would come with several benefits, including economic development. According to the National Park Service, NHAs average $5.50 for every $1 of federal investment, and many also improve water and air quality in their regions through restoration projects and provide new recreational opportunities.Reed was the lead sponsor of the House version of the bill. In a statement, he said, “The Finger Lakes Region is a national treasure right here in our backyard and we care about protecting these natural resources for generations to come. It is vital that we pass bipartisan legislation giving this region its rightful designation as a National Heritage Area which will boost tourism and conserve the region’s rich history, unique culture, and natural resources.”Kimble said with a rich history of Native American culture, the Women’s Rights Movement, and the Underground Railroad, paired with the region’s natural geographic beauty and pristine lakes, “I feel we certainly have a unique story that could be told.”“I’m just so excited to see this happen,” Kimble said. “I absolutely love the region and feel that this will certainly help elevate what we have here in the Finger Lakes.”Citing 2017 data from the Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance, the news release from Gillibrand on Wednesday gave a small snapshot of tourism in the region’s 14 counties. According to the data, tourism generates more than $3 billion in business and employs more than 58,000 people. It is also home to more than 400 registered historic sites and landmarks, 135 museums, 80 art galleries, 14 professional theater companies, 100 wineries, 300 bed and breakfasts and 650 miles of shoreline.
