Byrd receives endorsement from Central Florida PBA

first_img UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter I wonder why this group endorsed Mark Byrd??? I’m sure Mark Byrd is happy to get their endorsement, but the fact remains, as to why? Mark Byrd has no proven track record in the political arena. I assume he got their campaign donation also? Really strange, if you ask me….IMO Maybe the CFPBA will see this, and tell us why they endorsed Mark Byrd, over the other candidates, for Orange County Commissioner District 2, but I doubt it.

Charity raffle falls foul of ‘outdated’ charity law

A £100 fee was required to enter the raffle, with funds raised going towards extending playing fields and facilities at Mayobridge Gaelic Athletic Club (GAA).It is understood the competition was pulled because the prizes exceeded the maximum level permitted under the Betting, Gaming, Lotteries and Amusements (NI) Order 1985. The competition, organised by Friends of Mayobridge GAC, had been running since October and was due to be drawn this month on August 17.The organisers, Friends of Mayobridge GAC, said it was “with huge regret that we need to inform you that our planned A1 House Draw is not going to proceed”. The club has offered to refund ticket holders.The PSNI confirmed to the BBC it had offered advice to Mayobridge GAC about their house draw without launching a formal investigation.“Our view was that this was a lottery competition with the result that it potentially breached a number of areas of the current legislation,” a spokesperson said.“This has again highlighted that this legislation does not reflect modern society or technology and is in urgent need of update.”The spokesperson added that they also met sporting organisations across Northern Ireland, including Sport NI, in recent months to advise about running lottery competitions. Ulster Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) has also called for the reform of “restrictive and outdated” legislation that had placed Mayobridge GAC at risk of prosecution. Charity raffle falls foul of ‘outdated’ charity law  205 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Risk of possible prosecutionIf the draw had gone ahead, organisers could have been in breach of the order and faced possible prosecution. Rory McShane, solicitor for Mayobridge GAC, said the club was disappointed its fundraising efforts were “thwarted by legislation, which is totally outdated and not fit for purpose.”Mr McShane’s view was echoed by the governing body of the GAA which called on political representatives to make the reform of the Betting, Gaming, Lotteries and Amusements (Northern Ireland) Order 1985 an urgent priority as part of their ongoing programme for government negotiations.A spokesperson for the Department for Communities, which is responsible for charitable lotteries, said: “The Department recognises that the operation of a society lottery is an important means through which many charities, sporting clubs and other organisations raise funds.“The Department recommends that any organisation seeking to establish a lottery should seek legal advice before moving forward,” the spokesperson said.Neil Irwin, fundraising advisor and expert on charitable lotteries, said it is very unfortunate that Mayobridge GAC are unable to run a draw of this size in this way in Northern Ireland, especially considering the greater freedom in Britain.“It will be more galling for them to know the widespread scale of society lotteries in NI that also potentially break the law but run everyday,” Mr Irwin said.“We need the law to change urgently so hard working volunteers trying to keep their amateur clubs and charities going can use this fundraising tool to its fullest potential without the risk of investigation of prosecution,” he said.

Dorrill Jr., Herb Huner and Roy Kendrick, who represent the people’s interest in conservation programs and serve without compensation.“Funding for the Conservation District is an investment that returns multiple dollars for each dollar invested,” Motes said. “Commissioners Oren Fannin, Ray Goodson, Charlie Harris and Homer Wright supported the Conservation District’s request for funding and share a positive vision for the Pike County residents.” By Jaine Treadwell Book Nook to reopen Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Group discusses county’s donation This comes after the Pike County Commission voted last week to allot $10,000 to the soil and conservation district to fund a part time position. Their vote also came after the commission did not give a similar request for $15,000 to the Pike County Extension Office last year.The soil and conservation district’s annual budget is about $70,000 per year.Motes said funds for projects near county roads, building and utilities are funded through the District to the Pike County Road Department. The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Sponsored Content Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By The Penny Hoarder “One project funded was $125,000 from the Emergency Watershed Protection Program that stabilized the steep sloping of the Pike County Courthouse,” she said.The United States Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is the federal arm that implements local conservation initiatives, Motes said.“NRCS provides office space, vehicles and permanent personnel but the District must provide some administrative and technical personnel to compliment NRCS,” Motes said.Row crop farmers receive help for implementing water disposal systems for cropland, the Pike County Soil & Water Conservation District chair said. Poultry producers are able to file necessary required environmental forms at the district office rather than making a trip to the Alabama Department of Environmental Management in Montgomery, Motes said.“Plans for the application of poultry litter to agricultural land and approved plans for proper disposal of dead poultry are supplied.”In addition, Motes said that homeowners, urban residents and developers receive reports expressing soil limitations for various uses. Technical assistance is required for the implementation of conservation practices as well as preliminary surveying for gathering information for special programs.“The District also works in cooperation with the Extension Service, Farm Service Agency, Alabama Forestry Commission and other groups to make a better way of life for Pike County residents,” Motes said. “Without a doubt, the recent votes by the Pike County Commission to provide a modest amount of funding for the Pike County Soil and Water Conservation District was an appropriate decision for the people.“The county will receive multiple dollars in return annually for the small investment it makes in soil and water conservation.” Published 9:55 pm Monday, March 1, 2010 Print Article Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Acid Reflux (Watch Now)Healthy LifestyleIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Health unit takes on an integrated role

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. A council on Merseyside is launching an innovative internal health unit,bringing together its occupational health, employee counselling, health andsafety and health promotion functions under one roof. The move by Sefton council is believed to be the first time four suchfunctions have been brought together in this way. The internal health unit willwork out of the personnel department but retain complete autonomy. Previously the council had an internal health and safety function andpurchased an OH service externally, managed via the health and safety function.Alan Manchester, health and safety manager at the council, said he wanted tosee more seamless tackling of OH and health and safety issues – with a closerrelationship to employees’ actual working circumstances – as well as to instila culture shift whereby different functions worked more closely together. “There should be the possibility to learn together and support eachother,” he said. In the longer term he hoped to ensure greater intervention to help workersbefore problems got to the point where they had to take time off work. “I do not want the primary reason for contact with the service to beone of absence. I would want to be looking at problems that might be arisingprior to absence,” he said. Sefton council hopes the unit will be up and running from 1 October,depending on when premises become free.
