Gov. Eric Holcomb disucsses Indiana strengths and weaknesses at discussion panel.Photo by Brynna Sentel, TheStatehouseFile.com. Holcomb Touts Successes At Annual Legislative PreviewDecember 4, 2019 Posted by: Janet WilliamsBy Brynna SentelTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS—Gov. Eric Holcomb stressed the strengths of Indiana before a gathering of legislators, lobbyists, and lawyers Wednesday, but said the state still faces issues that need to be addressed in the upcoming legislative session.Holcomb’s session at the one-day legislative conference was advertised as a preview of his agenda for the 2020 session of the General Assembly that begins Jan. 6. But the governor is traveling to Terre Haute next week to do that and instead had a 40-minute discussion with moderator Toby McClamroch about some of the issues that might be raised next year.Holcomb said that his agenda will focus on some of the same issues as in the past.“I think it’s really three fronts and that’s how we strengthen our people and how we strengthen our infrastructure and how we connect with one another and how we strengthen and modernize our economy,” Holcomb said.In focusing on “one Indiana,” the governor told the gathering that it’s important that all parts of the state have access to the infrastructure, like roads, bridges, and broadband so all have an opportunity for growth.Holcomb emphasized the importance of transformational projects like completing I-69, getting rid of traffic lights and railroad crossings on Route 31 to South Bend, expanding rail lines and ports and creating a quality of place so people want to live and work in Indiana.But one of the biggest challenges remains workforce development and making sure there are the people available to fill the jobs of growing businesses, he said. It is a theme his administration has often repeated.Holcomb listed some of the successes from the 2019 session including dropping the income tax on military pensions, expanding broadband internet access to underserved areas and the investments in education.Holcomb and Republican leadership in the House and Senate have emphasized that education got more than $700 million in additional funding in the two-year budget passed in the spring and consumes more than half of the budget.Two weeks ago, thousands of teachers and their supporters from across the state flooded the Statehouse demanding more pay and funding for schools. Lawmakers were in session for one day to organize for the 2020 legislative session.But it seems unlikely that teacher demands will be met.The governor said Wednesday he was waiting until the work of his teacher pay study commission is finished before making any specific proposal to increase compensation for teachers, who have fallen behind pay levels in neighboring states.In separate discussion panels, Republican leaders have said the only new money to be spent in 2020, a non-budget year, will go toward one-time investments, ruling out using some of the state’s $2 billion reserves for teacher pay.FOOTNOTE: Brynna Sentel is a reporter for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail

I believe all members of our community deserve our help, and this issue is extremely important to me. Complete video of the town hall meeting, a frequently-asked-questions (FAQ) document and a copy of our settlement agreement are available at www.ocnj.us/AffordableHousing. The latest weather forecasts call for a mix of heavy rain and potential flooding this weekend, followed by ice and bitter cold on Monday. Tide levels are expected to peak on a near-full-moon tide at 7:10 a.m. Sunday morning. The National Weather Service has not yet issued any advisories, but please monitor forecasts and look for further updates from our Emergency Management Department.

A tobacco company’s new, dissolvable nicotine pellet — which in some cases resembles popular candy — could lead to accidental nicotine poisoning in children, according to a new study. The researchers also say the candylike products could appeal to young people and lead to nicotine addiction.The study by the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH), the Northern Ohio Poison Control Center, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) appears in the April 19 online edition of the journal Pediatrics, and will appear in a later print issue.Last year, the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. launched a dissolvable nicotine product called Camel Orbs, which, according to the company’s promotional literature, contains 1 mg of nicotine per pellet and is flavored with cinnamon or mint. The company also introduced Camel Strips (0.6 mg nicotine per strip) and Sticks (3.1 mg nicotine per strip).The product apparently is intended as a temporary source of nicotine for smokers in settings where lighting up is banned. However, the potential public health effect could be disastrous, particularly for infants and adolescents, said Professor Gregory Connolly, lead author of the study and director of the Tobacco Control Research Program at HSPH.Ingestion of tobacco products by infants and children is a major reason for calls to poison control centers nationwide. In 2007, 6,724 tobacco-related poisoning cases were reported among children 5 and under. Small children can experience nausea and vomiting from as little as 1 mg of nicotine.“This product is called a ‘tobacco’ product, but in the eyes of a 4-year-old the pellets look more like candy than a regular cigarette. Nicotine is a highly addictive drug, and to make it look like a piece of candy is recklessly playing with the health of children,” said Connolly.The researchers computed, based on median body weight, how much nicotine ingestion would lead to symptoms of poisoning in children. A 1-year-old could suffer mild to moderate symptoms by ingesting eight to 14 Orbs, 14 Strips, or three Sticks. Ingesting 10 to 17 Orbs, 17 Strips, or three to four Sticks could result in severe toxicity or death. A 4-year-old could have moderate symptoms by ingesting 13 to 21 Orbs, 14 Strips, or four Sticks, and could suffer severe toxicity or death by consuming 16 to 27 Orbs, 27 Strips, or five Sticks. The researchers reported that a poison control center in Portland, Ore., a test market for Orbs, reported a case in which a 3-year old ingested an Orbs pellet.R.J. Reynolds says the Orbs packaging is “child-resistant,” but the researchers say adults could unknowingly leave the pellets out in the open where children could easily access them. The researchers also say that the candylike appearance and flavoring and ease-of-use of the product can appeal to children.The report is called “Unintentional Childhood Poisonings Through Ingestion of Conventional and Novel Tobacco Products,” and its other authors are Patricia Richter, Alfred Aleguas Jr., Terry F. Pechacek, Stephen B. Stanfill, and Hillel R. Alpert.
Green beans are, hands down, my favorite garden vegetable. I could eat them every day of the week and never grow weary of them. Sautéed, boiled, roasted or pickled, I am ready. Canning green beans, however, is not my favorite task.Every year, I can and freeze produce, but I have learned through experience that I just don’t enjoy canning green beans. Harvesttime always seems to fall when it’s just not practical to spend hours in the kitchen preserving produce. So, instead of planting beds of green beans and having an unmanageable overabundance, I do succession plantings so that I have smaller harvests for a longer period of time.“Succession planting” simply means you plant vegetables continuously throughout the season. It can also refer to planting the same crop, such as my green beans, at intervals throughout the planting season.Planting this way ensures that, as older plants mature and end their production cycle, new ones start to produce. This practice extends the harvest window and ensures the availability of produce at the peak of production throughout the growing season.Farmers regularly use this practice, but it can be a useful tool for home gardeners, too. It is especially useful if you prioritize eating fresh vegetables rather than preserving them.For spring and fall gardens, most greens and root vegetables are good candidates for succession planting. For summer gardens, green beans, squash, zucchini, cucumber and corn are appropriate.You can also use succession planting with annual flowers, such as sunflowers, to make sure you have beautiful blooms from spring to fall. Two weeks throughout the planting season makes for a good planting interval for most crops. For vegetables like green beans that can be planted in the spring and fall, this is a double win and can add weeks to your production times.Another way to achieve a staggered harvest is to plant varieties with different maturing times. There are numerous varieties available for each vegetable. Many vegetables have early-producing varieties in addition to the old standbys. By planting several varieties that mature over different time spans, you can enjoy the subtle difference in flavor between varieties and have a longer season. Just check seed packets or seed catalogs for average days to maturity to select varieties that will work for you.Succession planting also refers to planting a sequence of different plants within the growing season. For example, if you plant lettuce for early spring, follow it with sweet potatoes in the same space after the lettuce is finished. Once the sweet potatoes are harvested, plant spinach. You will plant three crops where most gardeners plant one.Wise use of available space is essential, especially in small gardens. Planning your garden will help you take advantage of available space at planting and throughout the growing season and will ensure your garden stays bountiful from spring to summer to fall. Who doesn’t get a thrill from making a color-coded vegetable planting chart and map for each season?As we enter into the planting season, keep succession planting in mind as a technique to keep your kitchen stocked with your garden favorites.If you have questions about succession planting or vegetable gardening, visit the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension publication website at www.extension.uga.edu/publications.
A lot of people ask me what a typical day-in-the-life on the road is like. It’s a hard question to answer. Some weeks I’m at one of our office locations, cranking away at articles behind a desk from 9–5 like the rest of the world. Other days I’m driving for hours up and down backcountry roads and interstates, en route to the next destination. But a lot of those mundane days are broken up with fun stuff, and even when I’m stuck in the office with my spread of notes before me, three cups of coffee deep, I’m usually writing about one of my most recent adventures, so it’s really not that bad.In May, I hit the road for Brevard, N.C., to do some research on this month’s road trip issue. In particular, I was in town for one thing: Looking Glass. Probably one of the most iconic climbing destinations in western North Carolina, Looking Glass is located in Pisgah National Forest and can be seen from multiple overlooks along the Blue Ridge Parkway. It’s a striking granite monolith that rises from the forest floor, reflecting the sun’s brilliance overhead (hence the name).I’d never been to Looking Glass Rock before, and decided I was overdue. With the help of brothers and climbers Jonathan & Michael Dull, we shimmied up the 300-foot multi-pitch route Rat’s Ass before the inevitable afternoon showers rolled in.Gotta say, some days, I really do love the view from the office! Can’t beat it.

On scrutiny of his position following several poor performances, a bullish Solskjaer said: “Of course there’s always pressure and expectations on us.“You’re a top coach or a manager when you win, and you’re bad when you lose because that’s the last game you played. You’re not really better than your last game but every game of football becomes history quickly and we need to go into Goodison Park in a positive frame of mind.”How to followFollow Everton vs Manchester United in our dedicated live match blog. Highlights will also be published on the Sky Sports digital platforms and the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel shortly after the final whistle. Image:Jordan Pickford will start in goal for Everton The Colombia international missed the match at Newcastle with a knock but Ancelotti has said he will play on Saturday even though he views with scepticism the player’s assertion he is fully fit.“He said that he’s 100 per cent I have some doubt that he’s 100 per cent but it doesn’t matter for me,” said the Italian. – Advertisement – Ancelotti has also been boosted by the return of centre-back Mason Holgate, who has been out since sustaining an injury in pre-season.Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has no fresh squad concerns, with Alex Telles back in training after being ruled out recently following a positive Covid-19 test.“We’ve not lost any [players] from the Istanbul trip,” he said. “Same group, same squad.” Sky Sports News reporter James Cooper says Manchester United continue to back manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer despite two straight defeats against Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir A look at some of the key stats surrounding the fixtures in matchweek eight of the Premier League 2:48 4:40 The Everton manager also confirmed goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, rested last weekend, will start against United, adding: “I talked to him every day this week, we laughed, we are together. He knows what to do. He starts.”- Advertisement – Team news, stats and prediction ahead of Everton vs Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday; kick-off 12.30pmTeam newsEverton playmaker James Rodriguez will return to face an under-pressure Manchester United side with manager Carlo Ancelotti reporting a near fully-fit squad for the Goodison Park clash.- Advertisement – Jones Knows’ predictionPeople bounce back. That’s a well-known fact. However, the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer story is on the verge of getting pulped if results and performances do not pick up.His sliding doors moment as a top-level manager could come at Goodison Park. Another stinky showing is bound to linger over the international break, especially with a manager like Mauricio Pochettino declaring he is ready for a return.This erratic United side are a punter’s nightmare. One day, sublime, another day atrocious.It’s impossible to predict which team will turn up. But what we can control is Everton’s reliability at home. Carlo Ancelotti’s side have lost just one of their last 15 Premier League games at Goodison Park, winning four this season and scoring 18 goals in that period.With Lucas Digne and James Rodriguez hopefully back, I would like to think we will see a more dangerous Everton to the one that plodded to a limp defeat at Newcastle. If they can get service into Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Ancelotti’s men should be well equipped to bulldoze their way past a flaky United.JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 3-1 (18/1 with Sky Bet)Opta statsEverton are unbeaten in their last three league games against Man Utd (W1 D2), with both games last season ending 1-1. They last went four without defeat against the Red Devils in March 1990 (W2 D2).Manchester United have won more Premier League games against Everton than any side has won against another in the competition’s history (36). Meanwhile, their 16 wins at Goodison Park is the joint-most away wins for a club at a specific venue in the competition (Man Utd also 16 at Villa Park).Everton are looking to avoid losing three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since December 2019, while manager Carlo Ancelotti hasn’t lost three league games in a row since November 2006 with AC Milan.After a run of scoring in 17 consecutive games, netting 39 goals in the process, Manchester United have failed to score in their last two Premier League matches (0-0 vs Chelsea, 0-1 vs Arsenal). They last failed to score in three consecutive league games in February.Manchester United have won each of their last six Premier League away games – only between April-August 1993 (7) have they won more consecutively on the road in the competition.Everton haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last seven Premier League home games, last having a longer such run between May-November 2015 (8). Indeed, the Toffees have conceded at least twice in each of their last four league games at Goodison Park.Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored eight goals in his seven Premier League games this season, only failing to score in one game so far. The striker has scored in just one of his seven Premier League appearances vs Man Utd, but it was in his last such match against them (1-1 at Goodison Park, March 2020).Manchester United have conceded four penalties in their six Premier League games this season, already more than they had in their 38 games last season (3). Indeed, only in four completed campaigns have they ever faced more penalties in the competition (5 in 2006-07 and 2016-17, 6 in 2010-11 and 2018-19).Marcus Rashford has been involved in six goals in his last four Premier League away games for Manchester United, scoring three and assisting three.Man Utd’s Bruno Fernandes has been involved in 12 goals in his nine Premier League away games so far (8 goals, 4 assists), only failing to register a goal involvement in one of those nine matches (vs Crystal Palace in July). Even if he fails to get a goal or assist in this game, it will be the highest number of goal involvements in a player’s first 10 Premier League away games in the competition’s history.Pitch to Post Preview Podcast: Jamie Carragher on Man City vs Liverpool; Steve Bruce on Callum Wilson; Chelsea’s title chances assessedJamie Carragher and Steve Bruce are among the guests on this week’s Pitch to Post Preview Podcast.Sky Sports pundit Carragher joins Peter Smith and Adam Bate to look ahead to the big Super Sunday clash between Man City and Liverpool, while Steve Bruce is on the line to discuss Newcastle’s Friday Night Football trip to Southampton and the form of star striker Callum Wilson.Also on the show we analyse how Chelsea have turned around their defensive problems, how Leicester have coped with injury problems, and Adam makes a bold Pitch.Listen to the Sky Sports Pitch to Post Podcast on: Spotify | Apple | Castbox – Advertisement –
