Letters to the Editor for Tuesday, Sept. 15

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionWe must prepare for worst of covidI have never been the kind of guy who runs around saying the sky is falling, but I will admit to spending an inordinate amount of time looking at the COVID-19 statistics. So with that in mind and a little common sense, I see a disaster coming.First, the virus didn’t go away when it got hot out, obviously.Second, if you want to preserve something, you put it in the refrigerator. So, the virus is going to hang around longer in the winter.Unlike summer, we will be all packed in together and students will be traveling all over the place, carrying it with them and bringing it home.Third, after the first wave of infections receded, the country reached a plateau of an alarming 1,000 deaths a day. The fall will bring the second wave, when researchers are predicting a doubling or tripling of that figure, and the total COVID-19 deaths recorded in the last six months (~200,000) will be matched in the next three months until New Year’s.The peak of the second wave will occur at different times in different parts of the country, just like the first wave, and we will not be spared.The date of the presidential election is irrelevant to the virus. There are no proven therapeutics and there is no vaccine.All we can (and must) do to protect ourselves is wear our masks and wash our hands. It’s not a lot, but it’s everything.Paul DonahueNiskayunaCity manager will be costly for cityBefore the campaign promises about city managers start, let me give you some facts.Only 14 of New York State’s 62 cities have a city manager. Proponents of abolishing our form of government brought the city manager of Watertown to Saratoga Springs as an example of the quality of leadership our city could hire. This city manager was later fired by the Watertown City Council. Watertown is currently being run by its fourth city manager in only 3 years.In New York state, under a city manager, Elmira’s taxes went up 17% in 2018 and 7% more in 2019.In Ogdensburg, the manager was just forced out by the City Council; while in Long Beach the past city manager is being sued for misappropriation of over $1,500,000.The group that is pushing to change our local government has already used tens of thousands of dollars from national and state city manager associations to sell their false promises.Our city works. Why change to being governed by an unelected and unknown city manager brought in from out of town and risk higher taxes and losing our quality of life?Joe DaltonSaratoga SpringsGlendale Nursing staff are real heroesI would like to thank the staff at Glendale Nursing Home for all of their hard work and dedication during these challenging times. I would especially like to thank the staff on the Mohawk Trial unit.This neighborhood cares for residents with dementia.My mother resides on this unit on the first floor and has a window where we can visit and watch the actual day-to-day care and love that she receives.These staff have their own lives, caring for their own families during this pandemic, but continue to give excellent care and love to our loved ones.

Infrastructure managers must do more to help freight, warns Mercitalia

first_imgEUROPE: Mercitalia Logistics Chief Executive Marco Gosso strongly criticised the performance of European infrastructure managers at the Transport Logistic trade show in München on June 6.Insisting that the FS subsidiary would ‘increase the pressure on infrastructure managers’, Gosso said that freight operators were still not being adequately compensated for day-to-day disruption caused by infrastructure problems. ‘Generally if a train does not run, we get the cost of buying the path back, but this is only a small portion of the overall cost of providing a service’, he said. Rail freight operators ‘will die’ if the question of operational economics is not addressed, he told Railway Gazette.Asked if the 2017 tunnel collapse at Rastatt in Germany had helped to focus minds on better supporting rail freight operators during disruption, Gosso felt that ‘nothing much has changed’. Mercitalia Logistics is ‘still asking DB Netz for damages’, he added, noting that three of the group’s subsidiaries were affected.Nevertheless, Gosso presented an upbeat picture of the company’s performance since it was established at the start of 2017 to bring together the Italian state railway’s heavily loss-making freight activities. Announcing that the first phase of Mercitalia’s strategic plan was now complete, Gosso said that the focus would switch from reorganisation to development. Losses across the group have largely been stemmed and it is starting to generate cash despite the challenging economics of rail freight. ‘The key to the turnaround is productivity. Delivering more services across the logistics chain while keeping our cost base the same’, he explained.In its 2019-23 industrial plan, Mercitalia will spend €1bn across its business, of which around €700m will be allocated to rolling stock. Operation of longer and heavier trains will be a priority, and Mercitalia Rail has already started to deploy the first of 60 Bombardier Traxx DC3 locos on domestic traffic. In line with these objectives, the company plans to run its first 2 200 tonne cereals train on June 12.International growth is another strategic priority, especially on the key trans-Alpine corridors through Switzerland and Austria. Mercitalia Rail CEO Gianpaolo Gotelli confirmed plans to develop two new intermodal terminals in northern Italy by 2023 to handle anticipated traffic growth related to the completion of the Ceneri Base Tunnel and the high-clearance Gotthard corridor. Segrate near Milano will be able to handle up to 44 trains per day while Brescia will accommodate around half that number; both terminals will be able to receive 750 m long trains.last_img read more

Antigua PM rebuffs US report

first_img Sharing is caring! Share Share 109 Views   no discussions InternationalNewsPrintRegional Antigua PM rebuffs US report by: – March 17, 2017center_img Tweet Share Antigua’s Prime Minister, Gaston Browne(Antigua Observer) A 2017 US State Department report that gave a scathing assessment of Antigua & Barbuda, has been fiercely rebuffed by Prime Minister Gaston Browne.The International Narcotics Control Strategy Report (INCSR) Volume II on Money Laundering and Financial Crimes, which was released in March 2017, described the nation’s Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP) as “among the most lax in the world”.It also highlighted allegations by US prosecutors of a “corruption scandal involving the payout of close to $8 million in bribes by Brazilian construction contractor Odebrecht”.The mention of the alleged US $8 million in bribes is a doubling of the previous US $4 million bribe alleged. The US report noted that “the corruption allegations involve two high-level officials and two offshore banks in Antigua and Barbuda”.Browne dismissed the additional $4 million as an error on the part of the document’s authors, and labelled sections of the report “misleading” and “incorrect”.He said his government is prepared to challenge claims that the country’s CIP “remains among the most lax in the world”.The Antigua & Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP) leader said in Parliament, on Thursday, that it has written to the US State Department expressing its dismay with the “deception” in the INCSR 2017 report.Browne quoted a section of the letter which read: “The government of Antigua & Barbuda deeply regrets that the report misrepresents the situation in Antigua & Barbuda with regard to its Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP) and its anti-money laundering and counter financing of terrorism regime.”last_img read more

Projected First-Rounder Myles Garrett Wants To Play Somewhere Warm In The NFL…Just Like Everyone Else

first_imgThe Cleveland Browns have all but locked up the number one pick in the NFL Draft this year. So while most people watch the playoffs and cheer on their team, Cleveland will be scouting the next player to bring into town in hopes of finding their franchise star.That pick could be used on Texas A&M star Defensive End Myles Garrett, who has yet to declare for the NFL Draft but is expected to soon. Garrett is a Junior who has impressed scouts throughout his college career. The stat that stands out the most is the amount of sacks he has made, as he has totaled 32.0 sacks in his career. That stat would stand out to any team in a position to draft Garrett. It just so happens the team that has first choice plays in the cold.So, why is the climate of Cleveland, Ohio being brought up right now?According to Brent Zwerneman from the Houston Chronicle, Garrett was asked about his preference of what team he wanted to go to. Garrett smiled and said “Doesn’t matter … but I’d like not to go anywhere cold.”Though Garrett intended this to be a joke, it won’t be laughed off by NFL Draft Insiders, scouts and whoever else has an opinion on who their favorite team should take. Every single thing these players say and do will be over-analyzed, as teams are trying to figure out who’s the next Cam Newton and who’s the next JaMarcus Russell. So Garrett was very smart to follow up by talking about his desire to be a star for any team that drafts him. “Whoever picks me up, I’m going to try and play my best for, to be the best player on the field at any given time. It doesn’t matter who picks me up, I’m going to try and be a franchise player for them.”So, take the quote from the Garrett very lightly. It was a joke from a college kid excited to be where he’s at. But while trying to make light of the situation, Garrett might have opened up a discussion for months to come on the road to Draft Night. Elijah Mooneyham has been a dedicated sports fan his whole life. Born and raised in Cleveland, he has his best days when his hometown teams are winning.
