Despite mandatory evacuation, many on this Florida island plan to ride…

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Please enter your comment! Spray painted messages appeared across the island on boarded up windows. The center window shows eyes painted on John Wards house at the request of his oldest child. Photos by Joshua Barajas / PBS NewsHourWard’s wife wants to evacuate. They just moved to Merritt Island from Ohio in December, and have never been in a hurricane before. They have a three-month-old baby. But Ward reminds her that when they lived in Kentucky, they held the windows in place when a tornado tried to blow through their house. That they survived an ice storm in which they listened to the trees fall apart, and which made the fish tank freeze. And that they survived living in downtown Columbus, in a neighborhood that never felt safe.“We’ve been through more than this,” Ward says, as he stows a lawnmower and a motorcycle inside his garage Friday. “One kid is a little nervous, he’s 14, and remembers the tornado…. But my wife’s at Walmart, getting more bare necessities. We can go weeks in here.”“We’ve been through more than this. One kid is a little nervous, he’s 14, and remembers the tornado.”As they prep on opposite sides of the street Friday, Ward and Quarno walk over to each other’s houses a couple times to confirm that the other is staying. They agree the hurricane can’t hit them too hard, because NASA’s Kennedy Space Center is on the island, just north at Cape Canaveral, and the government would never put a space center in a vulnerable place.But Quarno also tells Ward to download the app Zello, which should operate like a two-way walkie talkie through the storm. (Editor’s Note: Zello doesn’t work if there is no wifi and no cellular data service.) And he says he has a generator for when the power goes out; Ward plans to hook onto another neighbor’s.Most people on the street seem to be staying, but not everyone. Ginger Trenta and her sister Micah Hughes, recently transplanted Texans with three children between them, say they’ll evacuate that afternoon for the sake of the kids. NOT STAYING — Unlike their neighbors Ginger Trenta and her daughter will not be staying on island during the hurricane. Photo by Joshua Barajas / PBS NewsHour“If I didn’t have any children I would stay and ride it out for the fun of it,” says Trenta, as her daughter sleeps in a side room and her two nephews watch cartoons. “But we don’t want the chance of being without power with them. That’d be really hard.”Instead, they plan to take the family to a hotel in Panama City, seven hours northwest of Merritt Island, out of the storm’s path. They tell the kids they are going on vacation.But Hughes’ son Aden, who is four, understands a big storm is on the way. “I don’t like them, they’re scary,” he says, as the street’s gutters begin to flood nearby.Elsewhere on the island, other residents and shops are hunkering down. The local 7/11, which has just gotten another shipment of gas, has boarded up windows but a big “OPEN” message scrawled on the front. At a nearby gun store, a graffitied message warns opportunists: “YOU LOOT WE SHOOT!” And at an Ace Hardware, which is selling out of soil and concrete anchors, the phone rings off the hook with questions from people who plan to stay.The clerk says the same thing at the end of every call. “Just stay safe.”Note: Feature photo – John Ward moved bags of mulch across his yard. The island ran out of sandbags, so residents there bought bags of mulch and soil as alternatives. Ward spray-painted a message to the hurricane on the plywood that covered the windows of his home.

Please enter your email address here Now a Category 4, Hurricane Irma is barreling toward southern Florida, and expected to reach Merritt island by Sunday night. But as of midday Friday, several hours ahead of evacuation, many people on the island say they plan to hunker down and stay.On an idyllic street of single-story homes and palm trees, sandwiched between the Indian and Banana rivers, and the open sea, most residents spend Friday bolting boards over windows, buying food and other supplies, and removing any objects that could become projectiles from their yards.“The key word on Merritt Island is island. … If [residents] want to stay, they’re taking a big risk.”“My house has been here for 53 years, and not blown away yet,” says Chris Quarno, who plans to stay along with his daughters and granddaughters, and boasts that he has lived through six hurricanes on Merritt Island before. “My street’s going to flood. It did in previous storms. But not my house.”Irma, though, isn’t like previous storms. Irma is “way bigger than Andrew,” Gov. Rick Scott has warned. It is stronger than the last eight Atlantic storms combined. And Merritt Island, though technically today a peninsula, is still surrounded by water on three sides.“The key word on Merritt Island is island,” says Brevard County Emergency Management’s spokesman Don Walker. “I wouldn’t remotely call this anything other than a dangerous storm system. If [residents] want to stay, they’re taking a big risk.” TAGSHurricane IrmaMerritt IslandPBS Newshour Previous articleHurricane Irma hammers Northern CubaNext articleA requiem for Florida, the paradise that should have never been Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img By ELIZABETH FLOCK  of the PBS Newshour  LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 MERRITT ISLAND, FL — They are supposed to leave the island this afternoon. They are supposed to pack up their belongings and kids and pets, and go to a mainland shelter or house or hotel. County emergency management officials have ordered all of Merritt Island, in central-east Florida, three feet above sea level, to evacuate ahead of one of the most powerful storms the Atlantic has ever seen. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter PLANNING TO STAY — In his backyard, Chris Quarno said he had a few items to still take down, various candles and outdoor lights among them. He also bolted down a picnic table in the back to the ground. Photo by Joshua Barajas / PBS NewsHourStill, Quarno is planning to stay, but he is also a little worried, because his daughter, who lives next door, is almost nine months pregnant. And so, when he drives to the local 7/11 to pick up tobacco dip, he stops a police officer to ask when the bridges to get off the island will close. Just in case.The officer tells him the bridges will close if they become unsafe, if there are sustained high winds, for example. On Friday, Irma’s winds were at 150 mph.“She’s due in three weeks,” Quarno explains. “And people go into labor due to the barometric pressure. When Andrew hit, we had seven or eight people in the county go into labor because of the hurricane. A lot of puppies were born.”He’ll turn on the TV and surround sound for his grandkids, so they can’t hear the wind.Back at home, Quarno’s son-in-law, Blake Ayers, says he plans to evacuate with his pregnant wife, who is still at work. But Quarno insists his daughter will stay right there on the island, in his fortified house, where she’ll be safer, and where his neighbor is a paramedic. Quarno has also bolted boards to his windows, and parked his cars and pontoon boat next to the house to break the wind. And he plans to fire up the generator for electricity in the basement, where he’ll turn on the TV and surround sound for his grandkids, so they can’t hear the wind.Down the street, John Ward has made the same decision. On the boards over his front window, he’s spray painted a defiant message: “A lot Staying Here Irma! 4 kids 2 adults pets.” On another window, at the request of his son, he’s sprayed eyeballs, looking southeast, in the direction of the storm.

(This figure is calculated in terms of the number of people that have received direct mail addressed to the deceased multiplied by the average amount of deceased mail received).Mortascreen’s calculations of brand damage are based only on the period of time that the direct mail is sent to the deceased. Of course, they could be significantly higher if the person continued to boycott the charity in the future.[Tweet “Charities lose £1.64 in brand costs each time they mail the deceased, says @Mortascreen”]Keep donor data as up-to-date as possibleKaren Pritchard, Product Director of Mortascreen, said:“2016 has seen the highest rate of deaths in memory and as a result donor databases are decaying more quickly than usual. With an expected 33,000 extra deaths this year charities can ill afford to ignore this research.“The fact that two thirds of donors would blacklist them if they mailed someone who had passed away is significant. Consumers are becoming increasingly empowered and will vote with their feet by closing their wallets.“As an industry we have always understood that mailing the deceased causes brand damage, however this research, for the first time, serves to emphasize the scale of the problem. Whilst the headline figure is unrealised potential revenue, in absolute terms the cost of producing these mail packs should serve as momentum to keep donor data as up-to-date as possible.” Data specialists Wilmington Millennium Mortascreen have calculated a figure for the cost to a charity in terms of brand damage for each time they send a mailing to someone who has died.How much does it cost a charity to send a fundraising or other mailing to someone who has recently died? There is the cost of the wasted printing and postage of course. But what about the impact on that charity’s reputation amongst relatives and friends who receive the unwanted mailing?According to Wilmington Millennium Mortascreen, that cost to a charity’s brand is £1.64 per mailing to a deceased person.Increased mortality rateThe challenge of avoiding this cost is only going to increase, given that the UK’s mortality rate has increased by 6%.Mortascreen’s research found that 66% of consumers would said that they would boycott a charity that sent direct mail to a loved one that was deceased.

The ONS’s latest figures include projected deaths to 2049/50 and represent a significant uplift on its previous death projections, produced in 2015. Compared to those forecasts, it is now predicting 5% more deaths over the next five years, meaning a total of 3 million deaths from 2017/18 to 2021/22, which is up by 140,000 on previous estimates.According to Legacy Foresight, the increase means that over the next five years both the number of charitable bequests and overall legacy income will be 2% higher than it predicted in summer 2017. It is now anticipating 640,000 charitable bequests from 2017 to 2021, worth a total of £15.6bn to UK charities.Tim Yates, Analyst at Legacy Foresight said:“As part of our ongoing market analysis and forecasts, we had already anticipated an upward revision in the number of deaths. Our estimates were relatively cautious, and the new ONS projections are 2% higher than our own forecasted figures.“The new figures pose vital questions about the many possible reasons why death numbers are expected to rise to this extent. We will continue to look into why the projections have changed so greatly and what it means for our legacy market projections over the next five years.”  90 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis22 Tagged with: legacies Research / statistics About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Freedom fighters converge in Mississippi

Freedom fighters converge in Mississippi

first_img‘In 2016, SHROC continues to be uncompromising in its values and its commitment in uplifting a radical, multi-generational human rights agenda that is rooted in anti-capitalism, anti-colonialism, anti-imperialism and anti-white supremacy.’ – Yolande TomlinsonJackson, Miss. – The Southern Human Rights Organizing Conference celebrated 20 years of convergences Dec. 9-11 in Jackson, Miss. Organized by Jaribu Hill from the Mississippi Workers Center for Human Rights, and held at Tougaloo College, a historically Black college rooted in the Civil Rights Movement, this SHROC was dedicated to “Local Human Rights and Social Justice Activists and Martyrs” such as Mayor Chokwe Lumumba, Fannie Lou Hamer, Medgar Evers, Annie Devine, Nubia Lumumba, Victoria Gray Adams, Dr. L.C. Dorsey and other freedom fighters from the South, and those from beyond such as Fidel Castro.The conference theme, “Forward Ever, Backward Never: 20 Years of Advancing a Global South Agenda for Human Rights,” focused on many struggles across the Southern region including panels on “Smashing Patriarchy: From Black Power to Black Lives Matter and Beyond” and “Strike Back Against Empire: Building International Solidarity.”“In 2016, SHROC continues to be uncompromising in its values and its commitment in uplifting a radical, multi-generational human rights agenda that is rooted in anti-capitalism, anti-colonialism, anti-imperialism and anti-white supremacy,” stated Atlanta-based conference organizing committee member, Yolande Tomlinson.She continued, “The need is not just to lift up needs of women, but to explicitly name patriarchy, the system of the male supremacy and domination that sits at the root of gender domination.”Over the last 20 years, SHROC has helped Southern organizers to understand their work within an international human rights framework. Participants were reminded of the role that the Black freedom struggle has played to elevate all struggles for social and economic justice within the United States.The conference has always been a place where Southern labor organizers come together to share their strategies and support each other’s campaigns. The Southern Workers Assembly hosted a meeting to continue to build a Southernwide social movement to organize labor in the South, along with supporting a proposal to build a National Assembly for Black Liberation.The conference raised the issues of supporting the freedom of political prisoners and going to the United Nations to demand reparations for descendants of slaves. Standing Rock and other important struggles were given attention.A main feature of the conference was support for 5,200 autoworkers at Nisson in Canton, Miss.Solidarity with Nissan workersOne of the main features of the conference was support for 5,200 autoworkers at a plant in Canton, Miss., who manufacture Nissan cars. A large majority of the workers are Black. There has been a 13-year effort to organize a union at this plant. Over 40 percent of the workers there are part-time workers, making it very difficult to organize. The workers have reported two deaths in recent years. They are still fighting for justice.The campaign is picking up steam after support from 35 French and European policymakers, who signed a letter asking Nissan to adopt a position of neutrality toward union organizing efforts in Canton.The French government owns 20 percent of shares of Renault-Nissan, which in turn is the largest shareholder of Nissan. In June, Christian Hutin, a member of the French National Assembly, visited Mississippi on a fact-finding mission, but Renault-Nissan declined to meet with him.‘This is not just a Nissan problem. These problems are happening all over the state of Mississippi.’ – Ernest WhitfieldThe conference held a solidarity rally Dec. 10 in front of the plant where Nissan workers Morris Mock and Ernest Whitfield reported that Nissan has received $1.3 billion in tax incentives to operate the plant in Mississippi — money that could have gone to schools, hospitals, levees, roads and other needs, not corporate profits.Whitfield stated earlier in the day: “We need auction block redemption. This is not just a Nissan problem. These problems are happening all over the state of Mississippi with employers.”Monica Moorehead spoke on behalf of Workers World Party at the rally, stating: “ Nissan made over $4 billion in profits last year off of the low wages of workers in Mississippi. Workers’ struggles should have no borders because the exploitation by capital knows no borders. Wouldn’t it be great if the French workers in Nissan could hold a solidarity picket for Nissan workers in Mississippi fighting for a union? That is concrete solidarity that would scare the bosses.”Members of Cooperation Jackson and the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement shared throughout the conference the lessons they are learning in building self-determined cooperative economic systems, such as the recently established Freedom Farms.Sunday panels focused on “Building a Safe Black Society for a Black Future” and “Pathways to Liberation: Revolution, Reform and Movement Building.” Featured on the latter panel were U.S. vice presidential candidates Lamont Lilly from Workers World Party and Ajamu Baraka from the Green Party.The conference also hosted many international guests such as Ambassador Jesús “Chucho” García of Venezuela (U.S. Consulate) who spoke on the historical links between Black Liberation, South America and the Caribbean, especially Haiti.Also present was “Maria,” from the Donbass region in Ukraine, who talked about the U.S. role in violating human rights there, contrary to media lies. Charo Mina-Rojas, from the Black Communities’ Process in Colombia, was also present via Skype, speaking about the struggles in her country.Free the land!

Mack Scott, Don Maestri learn from each other in the Farm-City Swap

Mack Scott, Don Maestri learn from each other in the Farm-City Swap

first_img Email the author Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits By Jaine Treadwell The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Mack Scott, Don Maestri learn from each other in the Farm-City Swap “The Trojans should play a five-man defense, …” Scott said.Scott will be coaching from the stands. If the Trojans fall behind Mississippi State, Scott said he’ll just hold up five fingers to remind Maestri, “Five man defense, coach. Five man.”Maestri said he’ll take Scott’s coaching tip and run a five-man defense. Guaranteed.Maestri left Trojan Arena anxious to get to the Scott Farm in Henderson.“I’m a city boy,” he said. “I grew up in New Orleans. I couldn’t wait to get to the farm and milk a chicken.”At the farm, Maestri found himself surrounded by a herd of cattle that didn’t respond to coaching or coaxing. And, the coach added “cow patty” to his vocabulary and to the bottom of his coaching shoes.The coach also learned what it means to make hay while the sun shines and how to move a bale of hay without lifting a finger.“You put on your farm hat and mount the tractor,” he said.While Scott and Maestri had fun joking around on the court and in the pasture, they were serious when it came to what they do and why they do it.“We’re both producers,” Maestri said. “To be successful, we have to produce.”“Coach Maestri has to ‘produce’ winning teams to be successful on the basketball court but he does something much more important then that,” Scott said. “Coach Maestri is dedicated to making sure that his players have the tools that they need to be successful in life. He is committed to his players. He wants to win and works hard to produce a winning team but leads the team in such a way that the players can be successful on the court and in life. That just really impressed me and I have so much respect and admiration for him.”The feeling is mutual.Maestri said that his time with Scott was “a real class in farming.”“I learned about cows and bulls and breeding,” he said. “I learned about times to plant crops and the different kinds of hay for horses and cows. I learned about farm machinery and farm workers, about fertilizers and the cost of food.“It was a wonderful experience. I used to think that farming was riding on a tractor and throwing seeds out. But farming is extremely complex. You don’t know how to appreciate what another man does until you walk in his moccasins.”Maestri said it takes a tremendous monetary investment to farm and he has great respect and admiration for a man who works from sunup to sundown every day with no guarantee that he’s going to get a paycheck for his efforts.“The weather is a huge factor and you can’t predict the weather and certainly can’t control it,” he said.Scott said he was in awe of the great indoors where Maestri works. And Maestri said he was in awe of the beauty of the countryside where Scott spends his days.Each has a deep appreciation and huge amount of respect for the other and the work they do. But, at the day’s end, they both know that they are where they are supposed to be and doing what they have been called to do.“And that’s a mighty good way to end a day,” they agreed. Maestri said the new Trojan Arena is a dream come true.“If you dream big, it can happen,” he said. “This arena is living proof that dreams can happen.”The dream became a reality through the dedication and hard work of many. And, with the tip of the Troy University and Mississippi State basketball game next week, a new era of Trojan basketball will begin.”With a little coaching from the sidelines and some one-on-one between Scott and Trojan Ray Chambers, Maestri said he thinks Scott will be a valuable assistant during the Mississippi State game. And Scott has a winning game plan. From the very beginning, Scott made it perfectly clear that he was much more comfortable in a pasture with a herd of beef cattle than he was on the basketball court with a team of towering Trojans.Scott was in awe of the players and the place.“This is my first time in the new arena and it’s … unbelievable,” he said. “What an opportunity for these young men to play in a place like this.” Book Nook to reopen Print Articlecenter_img Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Published 11:00 pm Friday, November 2, 2012 You Might Like Banks school to host ‘a family reunion’ Wilda Steele and Dick Barr attended Banks grammar school in the 1930s.

Scott was at Trojan Arena to participate in the annual Farm-City Swap sponsored by the Farm City Committee of the Pike County Chamber of Commerce.Respect and appreciation are what the farm boy and the city slicker, who participated in the 2012 Pike County Farm-City Swap, gained from each other.Mack Scott, a Henderson farmer and “feed store” owner, and Don Maestri, Troy University head basketball coach, went head-to-head this week in the annual Farm-City Swap sponsored by the Pike County Chamber of Commerce Farm-City Committee. However, they didn’t lock horns. Instead, they formed a two-man mutual admiration society.The purpose of the Farm-City Swap is for members of the urban and rural communities to swap jobs for a day so that each may learn more about the other’s chosen occupation.
