The fund would help small, independently-owned businesses with less than 25 employees that are suffering during the public health emergency with grants up to $5000. The other two initiatives would approve allocating $10,000 to the Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce to support and underwrite costs associated with enhanced “shop local” marketing efforts, as well as provide Clear Lake Chamber Bucks for city employees, including volunteer firefighters, in response to and recognition of their ongoing extraordinary efforts for the citizens.

The agreement states that JSM intends to employ 15 full-time equivalent and part-time employees no later than 12 months after the project is opened, with the minimum taxable valuation of the project being not less than $5 million. The city intends to enter into a future economic development agreement with JSM that would: reimburse up to $50,000 of the franchise application fee paid to Marriott by JSM; provide a $150,000 incentive to JSM if they begin construction no later than June 15; provide JSM another $150,000 incentive should the project be completed and have a certificate of occupancy issued by June 30th 2021; provide a not to exceed $1.2 million economic development forgivable loan on completion of the project, with the loan being forgiven over a 10-year period starting in the first fiscal year the city receives tax-increment from the property.

She reportedly paid $7,880 in tuition and fees for the spring semester.Meanwhile, the lawsuit filed last week in Leon County circuit court against the Board of Governors by University of Florida graduate student Anthony Rojas seeks only to obtain a refund of fees, and not tuition.“Plaintiff’s claims relate solely to fees paid by Florida residents for on-campus services and do not concern fees or costs for tuition and/or room and board because students were able to complete their courses and obtain their credits for the spring semester and because the universities have offered appropriate refunds relating to room and board, but not as to fees,” the Rojas lawsuit said.All three of the lawsuits make allegations such as breach of contract and “unjust enrichment.”While the Fagundez and Rojas lawsuits seek are seeking class action status on behalf of students throughout the university system, the Egleston case focuses only on the University of Florida.Judges will end up deciding whether to allow any or all of them to proceed as class action claims. A Florida International University student this week filed what is at least the third potential class-action lawsuit seeking refunds for students within the state university system.The latest complaint, like the others, alleges “inferior” online classes when campuses closed this spring due to the coronavirus pandemic.Attorneys for Sarah Fagundez, an FIU graduate student from Miami, filed the suit against the university system’s Board of Governors on Tuesday in Leon County circuit court.Meanwhile, University of Florida student Dylan Egleston filed a similar lawsuit on Monday against the UF Board of Trustees. That action also followed another case that was filed against the Board of Governors in circuit court.Fagundez argues that she and other students in the university system should receive refunds for parts of tuition and fees they paid for the spring and summer semesters.“Plaintiff (Fagundez) does not impugn defendant for taking measures to protect the public health; but the defendant must acknowledge that the education and services it now provides to students throughout the university system lack the full value of those for which plaintiff and the class paid,” Tuesday’s lawsuit against the Board of Governors said.It continues, “Not only is a fully online college experience inferior, socially and academically, to the in-person experience for which plaintiff and the class paid; but the university system’s ersatz online courses now offered to students are inferior to online courses that were conceived as such in the first instance.”
For the first time in four months and ten, Simeone had at his disposal the three spikes of his trident in Cornellà. Álvaro Morata, Diego Costa and João Félix. Between injuries and the operating room since October 19, day 9, Atlético-Valencia, the three had not played. In Cornellà they did not coincide in the field. They did Morata and João Félix for seven minutes, those who passed between the entry of Portuguese in 55 ‘(by Carrasco) and the exit of Madrid in 62’. His change was Diego Costa, who was returning in the League (he had already returned to Liverpool, but that day João Félix was not yet). The Portuguese and the Spanish-Brazilian played together from there until the end, 28 minutes. The same gave. Morata is still not the one of 2019, Costa is very far from the Coast of 2014 that Simeone so longed for, João Félix returned to be just a couple of cañitos, sparkles. Simeone is urged to recover their level as soon as possible. What comes are curves. Seville, Anfield, San Mamés and El Sadar. Closed curves. And the blandiblu trident. The lack of a goal is Atlético’s endemic evil this season. The second line (the Koke, Saul, Thomas) have taken a step forward, contributing their goals, in Cornellà Saul was again, but the strikers do not accompany, beyond João returning from his injury with a goal against Villarreal. But the vital thing is that Costa, Morata and João mix, that their goals return. Lagarto’s presence in the season is practically testimonial, but, beyond his disc-cervical hernia and his corresponding three months of discharge, he speaks of the goal. 2 in 17 games. 0.11. A misery for the Cholo striker who feels like a glove the nickname of Beast. But his blows are only caresses. In memory, the round trip against Juve last season. That party that changed with his presence alone. Morata’s average in the LeagueBefore the game at the RCDE Stadium yesterday began the TV revealed a devastating fact. The average Morata goals in LaLiga. 0.3. Seven in 22 games. And the last one more than two months ago, 70 days. His fight is commendable, his effort and work always. Like Cholo’s plan. Balls looking for him. It is thanks to Morata that Atlético generates so many second moves, it is thanks to Morata that Correa finds the spaces through which to sneak in lately. But Morata is dry, he lives the streak badly, and the team needs his goals more than ever. Cavani did not arrive. In his place he did a Carrasco of undeniable talent but two years in China, which lacks rhythm, that spark from before. What Simeone needs is that his trident refine. Together, separately, but their goals arrive. What comes are called endings.
Piqué didn’t sentence the second version of the new Davis Cup format, which is once more scheduled to host Madrid as in 2019, the place the Spain of Rafa Nadal took the title. “There are completely different choices, no person now has the safety that we’re going to have the ability to play or behind closed doorways “, stated. “As the weeks go by, we can have a bit of readability on the topic, so far as we will. To work now is sophisticated, we’re ready in case we find yourself organizing it,” he settled. FC Barcelona participant Gerard Piqué, proprietor of Kosmos, firm that organizes the Davis Cup Finals, confessed to being “pessimistic” earlier than the risk that the 2020 version in Madrid will probably be held, since “with out individuals it is troublesome” and the coronavirus disaster maintains “a lot uncertainty ““There is quite a lot of uncertainty. We attempt to pay attention to the whole lot that the CSD and the authorities say about it, if we will put individuals in the Caja Mágica. I see it a bit pessimistic, as a result of a Davis Cup with out individuals is troublesome, however let’s see “, indicated this Sunday in an interview on the program ‘Partidazo de Movistar’ broadcast in #Vamos and picked up by Europa Press.

WESTERN BUREAU: Munro College warmed up for Saturday’s ISSA-FLOW daCosta Cup derby football match against rivals and defending champions, St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS), with a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Maggotty High at Appleton Sports Complex yesterday. The match, which had its kick-off last Thursday, was abandoned because of rain and persistent lightning strikes with 30 minutes played and Maggotty holding a 1-0 lead after Sandrae Facey scored in the 30th minute. Yesterday’s match was a shortened version for some supporters who turned up to watch the continuation. When play resumed, it appeared that Maggotty were ready to log their first win of the season. They were dominant in the remaining 15 minutes of the first half, with Facey in particular proving a danger once more to the Munro defence. But Munro persisted and could have easily won the game had they been a lot more clinical in the final third. In fact, were it not for a defender’s mistake – in chopping down Munro skipper Timar Lewis inside the box, as the forward bore down on goal – they could have been celebrating only their first three points of the season. Lewis got up to side-foot a penalty to the left of Delano Lewis in goal for Maggotty in the 78th minute, robbing the hosts of the chance of victory. “I think poor decision making around the back and in attack made us look real ordinary at times today,” said Lance Morgan, Munro’s coach. “All we needed was just to be more composed in attack, but overall I think we managed well, although we should have won the game.” He said the game was a hard one and that it sets them up well for the derby preparations against STETHS. “We will take this and go into preparations for Saturday’s big game. We need to win that one, so we are going put in some work for it,” Morgan told The Gleaner. Munro moved to six points from four matches, while Maggotty remain without a victory, but now have two points from their four matches. Yesterday’s Results Maggotty 1 Munro 1 Knockalva 1 Green Island 8 Newell 4 Black River 0 Belair 2 Decarteret 0 BB Coke 0 Manchester 2 York Castle 1 Marcus Garvey 1 Ocho Rios 0 Browns Town 2 Foga Road 2 Winston Jones 0
DeMarcus Cousins had 35 points and nine rebounds, and the Pelicans tied it at 96 when Cousins bounced a pass to Anthony Davis cutting down the lane for a two-handed dunk.Davis had 24 points and 10 rebounds, and Holiday added 14 points for New Orleans, which has lost two straight.“We’re still a team figuring each other out and figuring out what’s best for us and what’s the best spots to put guys in,” Cousins said. “But I’m extremely confident in this team.”New Orleans trailed 92-80 before Cousins and Tony Allen each scored six points during a 14-4 run to tie it with 2:22 to go.That comeback bid was “definitely a sign that shows me this is a team that doesn’t stop fighting. That’s a plus for any team,” Cousins said. “We just need to fix a lot of minor things.”ADVERTISEMENT Butler can worry about that later. His go-ahead shot as he was fouled with 34 seconds left highlighted a 23-point performance and lifted the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 104-98 victory over New Orleans on Wednesday (Thursday Manila time).Andrew Wiggins scored 18 points and stole the ball from Jrue Holiday with 24 seconds left to help seal the victory for Minnesota, which lost a 12-point lead in the fourth quarter before winning its third straight. Perhaps the most hopeful sign for Minnesota, which is trying to make the playoffs for the first time since 2004, is that the Wolves won despite 22 turnovers and the fact that Karl-Anthony Towns, limited by foul trouble, scored only two points.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smog“It’s a different feeling.

Fianna Fáil has reiterated its call for an increase in Garda numbers in the County following a meeting this week with Garda representatives to discuss crime in border areas.Deputy Charlie McConalogue and Fianna Fáil Councillors Paul Canning, Gerry Crawford and Patrick McGowan have met with Superintendent Michael Finnan and Inspector David Kelly in Letterkenny to highlight community concern about crime and policing in border areas.In a joint statement, the Fianna Fáil representatives commended the Gardaí for their recent work in making arrests following a number of burglaries in the Lifford, Raphoe, Manorcunningham and St Johnston areas. However, they re-iterated their belief that additional resources must be allocated to border areas in order to deter crime in the county.“The local Garda force must be commended for their work in the investigations following recent burglaries in East Donegal. However, as a party we feel that the drop in Garda numbers in the County is making it more difficult to have the level of Garda presence needed in border areas to prevent and deter criminal activity. As Garda numbers have fallen, instances of serious burglaries have increased. This is not a co-incidence.”Backing up the party’s calls for additional resources, Deputy McConalogue has outlined figures released to him in Parliamentary Replies from the Minister for Justice showing the sharp decline in the force over the last number of years“In 2008, the Donegal force was at an all-time high of 488 personnel. As of June 2014, there were 404 personnel. Through the same period, eight stations have been closed across the County and many Garda stations are left struggling for essential resources such as enough Garda cars to enable them to effectively police local areas. “Many Garda Stations are also struggling to reliably open for advertised public office hours as the staff numbers are not always available. The loss of 84 guards over six years means a real drop of visible presence and policing on the ground and the Minister must work with the Garda Commissioner to ensure that additional resources are allocated to our County.“While the Gardaí in the County are doing their best with the resources they have it is absolutely clear that the Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald must urgently take action to bring forward Garda recruitment and bring about an increase in Garda numbers in the County and in border areas,” concluded the Fianna Fáil representatives.
