Lawmakers debate whether face masks are necessary

Lawmakers debate whether face masks are necessary

first_imgDES MOINES — There have been some partisan policy disputes now that the 2020 Iowa  legislative session has resumed, but there’s some intense public bickering about face masks. Most Democrats have been wearing face coverings. Most Republicans are not.Senator Bill Dotzler, a Democrat from Waterloo, gave two speeches urging his colleagues to wear a mask at all times.  “Have respect for us who might have underlying conditions or family members who had them underlying conditions,” Dotzler said. “We’ve even got people who are health care professionals in this room who aren’t doing it.”Senator Mariannette Miller-Meeks of Ottumwa, the Republican nominee for Iowa’s second congressional district seat, is an eye doctor. Miller-Meeks responded to Dotzler, saying she’s read reams of research that suggests maintaining six-feet of separation is sufficient. “I don’t need to be chastised as a physician on whether I should wear a mask or not wear a mask because I’ve looked at the CDC guidelines…I am, in fact, following those guidelines,” Miller-Meeks says. “…When I’m at a store, at a location, at a restaurant I make sure I’m six feet apart.”There was no floor debate Monday in the House or Senate. The legislature will reconvene today.last_img read more

Warm Up to Lower Energy Bills

Warm Up to Lower Energy Bills

first_imgFacebook37Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Springer PlumbingWe have all heard of hybrid cars, but did you know there are hybrid water heaters? We have seen increased interest in these and wanted to share the benefits of installing a hybrid tank in your home. Last April, major changes in water heater efficiency came into effect, resulting in older style water heaters being phased out. This has pushed our company to explore more of the many options that are on the heating market.How Do They Work?A standard type water heater relies on electricity alone to heat water in the tank. Hybrid units take it a step further and draw heat from the surrounding air, transferring that heat into the enclosed tank. Think of it as how a refrigerator works in reverse. In case you have houseguests or are using a large amount of hot water, they also come equipped with traditional heating elements that can kick in when needed.Hybrid heat pump water heaters are one of America’s most efficient water heaters; over 65% more efficient than a standard tank. Many of the models have different modes they can be ran on depending on your water needs, which are easily changed on a convenient control panel. These modes include hybrid, heat pump only, boost and vacation mode.Why Should I Care About Efficiency?Water heaters are the 2nd highest energy user in the home. Standard tanks use more than the refrigerator, clothes washer, dryer and dishwasher combined. Switching to a more efficient tank may cost more upfront, but the energy savings will put that money back in your wallet in less than two years for a household of four.Huge Rebates are AvailableIf the energy savings are not a big enough incentive for you, Puget Sound Energy is offering a hefty rebate for the installation of these efficient tanks. If you have a hybrid water heater installed and take advantage of the rebate it will result in being about the same cost of a traditional water heater. Ron, owner of Springer Plumbing, is even taking advantage of this deal and installing a hybrid heat pump water heater in his own home. We would be happy to answer any questions for you! The conditions of the rebate can be found here.last_img read more

Local firm SCJ Alliance Part of Award-Winning Projects

Local firm SCJ Alliance Part of Award-Winning Projects

first_imgFacebook12Tweet0Pin0Submitted by SCJ AllianceA project worked on by a statewide team of SCJ Alliance folks recently received two awards for excellence. SCJ’s Lacey, Centralia, and Wenatchee offices worked together on project design, outreach, and construction management for the award-winning City of Chelan projects.For more than a decade Chelan had been trying to figure out the best way to address Woodin Avenue Bridge safety issues, with its shifting and crumbling concrete, faulting electrical, and narrow sidewalks. Although structurally sound, renovations were sorely needed for this front door to downtown. The city had outgrown the narrow concrete bridge, originally built in 1927, and there was no longer enough room for all the pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicle traffic.In partnership with City staff, the Historic Downtown Chelan Association, Chelan Douglas Transportation Council, and others, SCJ designed a project that combined bridge restoration with other efforts. The Woodin Avenue Bridge Restoration Project was selected as the Project of the Year in the “Historic Less Than $5 Million” category by the Washington chapter of the Association of Public Works (APWA).Significant upgrades were also made to the adjacent Woodin Avenue Landing Park, which provides access to the downtown from the water. The Washington State Main Street Program selected it for an Excellence on Main Award in the “Outstanding Special Project” category. “By incorporating the park into the overall construction project, it saved the smaller project thousands of dollars. It’s now an inviting space for both locals and visitors alike, with increased access to Lake Chelan,” said SCJ Project Manager Dan Ireland.Ireland, an engineer, is based out of SCJ’s Wenatchee office, while the principal landscape architect, Jeff Glander, is part of SCJ’s Lacey office. Engineer Bob Tauscher, who oversaw the construction, calls the Centralia office home. “In today’s COVID world, the lines are more blurred regarding the significance of an ‘office’ location,” says Ireland. “But we’ve been ahead of the curve in that regard. For years our teams have included colleagues working seamlessly across disciplines and offices, with tremendous results.”ABOUT SCJ ALLIANCE: SCJ is a 100% employee-owned firm specializing in civil engineering and site development, transportation planning and design, environmental and urban planning, landscape architecture, public outreach, and cable-propelled transit. Staff work collaboratively with public and private clients to anticipate emerging needs and priorities, envision projects that enhance communities, and create designs that bring visions to life. The firm has offices in Ballard, Seattle, Gig Harbor, Lacey, Centralia, Wenatchee, and Spokane, Washington, as well as Boulder, Colorado.
