Pike County BOE: Coach can’t resign

first_img The Pike County Board of Education denied the resignation request of Pike County High School head football coach Robert Johnson Monday night.Dr. Mark Bazzell, superintendent of education, made the recommendation to deny Johnson’s request.Following the vote of the board, Bazzell recommended the immediate termination of Johnson as PCHS athletic director and head football coach but not of his teaching duties. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Latest Stories Sponsored Content You Might Like Troy BOE makes ‘history’ Monday marked the beginning “of a big week in the history of the Troy City Schools system.” So said Dr…. read more Book Nook to reopen Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By Jaine Treadwell The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Print Article Bazzell said in recent weeks, he met twice with Johnson about the program at PCHS and, at no time, did Johnson give any indication that he would not be back as the head football coach at PCHS.John Cooper, an assistant to Johnson, was named the interim head coach.Dr. Mike Hall, PCHS principal, said that as a result of the board’s action, Johnson is still a teacher at Pike County High School.However, Hall said Johnson was not at the school Thursday, Friday or Monday. The superintendent’s PEPE (Professional Education Performance Evaluation) was presented to the board by Dr. John Osburn.Osburn told the board that when a superintendent has been through more than one evaluation process, the emphasis of that evaluation comes from the board of education and the staff.“All superintendents do well on the interview and portfolio portions of the evaluation,” he said. The six board members responded to 58 questions and the staff to 35. Bazzell’s mean score was 3.9 on a 4.0 scale.“Dr. Bazzell’s mean score went up and I’ve done 100 of these evaluations and, in 10 years, I have had only one other superintendent whose mean score went up in later evaluations,” Osburn said. “Usually, by that time the honeymoon is over. Dr. Bazzell’s score speaks volumes about his leadership ability.”Bazzell expressed appreciation to the board and to the administrative staff for their support and loyalty.“I don’t say thank you enough,” he said. “That’s a weakness of mine but I do thank you and appreciate all that you do. I could not have a better board than I have and the key to our working relationship is communication.”Bazzell told the board that preliminary FY2011 Foundation 3 percent proration hit hard but the school system remains on sound footing thanks to its $2 million reserve.“What the 3 percent proration will cost us is $362,309,” he said. “But we are still in good shape. A lot of school systems are already having to borrow money to finish out the school year and, by the end of the year, as many at 35 to 40 schools systems could have to borrow.”Bazzell said hopes had been that the school systems’ reserve could have grown to $2.8 million but proration has put a dent in the hope.“But, we’re still on track for about half of that growth,” he said. However, he added that it remains to be seen what effect that the rising gas prices will have on the budget when the buses run a 7,000-mile a week route and get about four miles per gallon.In other action, the board approved a re-roofing project at Troy-Pike Center for Technology. The cost will be split with Troy City Schools.The board gave its approval for Brooke Terry, Sara Wilson, Deborah Sessions and Aretha Jackson to attend the School Nutrition Association’s National conference in Nashville July 9-13. All expenses will be paid by the Child Nutrition Program.The board approved a request for the Educational Talent Search program at Goshen High School to take 48 juniors and seniors on an annual trip to Gulf World in Panama City on May 5. The trip will be fully funded by Trenholm State Technical College. Approval was also given for 10 Goshen High School JROTC cadets to attend JROTC Cadet Leadership Challenge June 6-11 in Anniston. Transportation will be at no cost to the Pike County School District.In personnel action, the board approved the retirement of Karen Adams from Banks School effective June 1 and accepted the resignation of Shawn maintenance team leader, effective April 1.The board approved the hiring of Otis Scott as a fulltime bus driver.Tony Jones and Marion Hughes were granted catastrophic leave and the borrowing of 11 days each from the sick leave bank.

Johnson said last week that he resigned to take a job at Tuscaloosa Academy. He began work there on Monday.“First, I heard about it on voice mail,” he said. “And, when we look to fill positions of leadership, we spend a lot of time doing so. We do not take it lightly, neither the application, the structured interview nor the personal interview. We take the applicant to dinner. We visit with the family.

7-year-old trick-or-treater ‘clings to life’ after being shot by ‘cowards,’ says superintendent

first_imgkali9/iStock(CHICAGO) — A 7-year-old girl was clinging to life Friday morning after she was shot by “cowards” while trick-or-treating with her family on Halloween, said Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson.The shooting occurred on a packed street in the Little Village neighborhood on Chicago’s West Side, where dozens of kids dressed in costumes were trick-or-treating for Halloween. The 7-year-old was dressed as a bumblebee, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.“Obviously the little girl wasn’t the target. We think two gangs were having a dispute and one of them shot at the other,” Johnson told reporters Friday morning. “She just was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”Police say the child was shot in the lower neck area and is in critical condition, but has been stabilized, Johnson said.A man who police believe was the likely target was shot in the hand during the incident, Johnson said.The superintendent called the shooting “reprehensible.”“Those involved don’t deserve to be in our city,” he said. “I’m disgusted but committed to doing everything we can to find the cowards that would engage in a gun battle during the early evening hours while children are trick or treating.”“We heard the shots,” Lali Lara, who works in a nearby cellphone store, told the Chicago Tribune. “The girl’s father was screaming, ‘My little girl’s been shot.’”One person of interest has been identified, Johnson said, adding, that there were “multiple offenders,” though the specific number is unclear.“Detectives have been working through the night to follow leads and chase down every bit of video available” along that street, said Johnson.A suspect was wearing a Jason Halloween mask, Johnson said.Johnson said phones were “ringing off the hook” Thursday night as community members passed along information.“There’s no place for offenders to hide when all eyes are searching,” Johnson said. “I am asking anyone who knows anything to stand up and do the right thing.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Officer who fatally shot Daunte Wright to be charged with second-degree manslaughter

first_imgBruce Bisping/Star Tribune via Getty Images(BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn.) — Kim Potter, the white police officer who shot and killed Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black man, during a traffic stop in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, will be charged with second-degree manslaughter, authorities said Wednesday.Potter was arrested at about 11:30 a.m. local time and will be booked into the Hennepin County Jail, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said.The Washington County Attorney’s Office will file the second-degree manslaughter charge later on Wednesday, the state agency said.Potter, a 26-year veteran of the Brooklyn Center Police Department, submitted her resignation on Tuesday following Sunday’s fatal shooting. Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott said Tuesday that he had not yet accepted Potter’s resignation.Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon also submitted his resignation Tuesday.Wright, a father to a 2-year-old boy, was driving in Brooklyn Center, just outside of Minneapolis, when he was stopped by police Sunday afternoon. The officers initially pulled him over for an expired registration tag on his car but determined during the traffic stop that he had an outstanding gross misdemeanor warrant, according to Gannon.As police tried to take him into custody, Wright got back into the car and Potter fired her gun, striking him.Gannon said Potter intended to deploy her Taser instead of her gun when she “accidentally” shot Wright.Attorneys Benjamin Crump, Jeff Storms and Antonio Romanucci, who are representing Wright’s family, said in a statement Wednesday, “While we appreciate that the district attorney is pursuing justice for Daunte, no conviction can give the Wright family their loved one back.”“This was no accident. This was an intentional, deliberate, and unlawful use of force,” the attorneys claimed. “A 26-year veteran of the force knows the difference between a taser and a firearm. Kim Potter executed Daunte for what amounts to no more than a minor traffic infraction and a misdemeanor warrant.”In a resignation letter to city officials on Tuesday, Potter wrote, “I have loved every minute of being a police officer and serving this community to the best of my ability, but I believe it is in the best interest of the community, the department, and my fellow officers if I resign immediately.”A second-degree manslaughter conviction in Minnesota carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said Wednesday that it will continue to work with the Washington County Attorney’s Office on the case.This story is developing.

Early evolution of the Proto-Andean margin of South America

first_imgFrom a detailed study of a 500 km transect in the Sierras Pampeanas, central-west Argentina, two pre-Silurian tectono-magmatic episodes are recognized and defined, each culminating in micro-continental collisions against the proto-Andean margin of Gondwana. The Pampean orogeny started in Early Cambrian time with short-lived subduction, indicated by ca. 535 Ma calc-alkaline granitoids. Following Pampean terrane collision, burial to granulite facies conditions (ca. 9 kbar) generated widespread migmatites and ca. 520 Ma highly peraluminous granites in the Eastern Sierras Pampeanas. After brief quiescence, a second major episode, the Famatinian orogeny, started with subduction ca. 490 Ma, forming a wide continental arc and ensialic backarc basin. This heralded the approach of Laurentia to Gondwana, during which the Precordillera terrane separated from the southern Appalachian region, finally colliding with Gondwana in Silurian–Devonian time.last_img read more

Prime price discounts widening, says Home Owners Alliance

first_imgThe extent of the pain being endured at the top of the sales market has been revealed by research from the Home Owners Alliance (HOA).Properties are being sold for up to 14.5% less than their asking price in the prime market within England and Wales, the research suggests.Using its estateagent4me estate agent comparison tool, which tracks agents’ achieved prices versus asking prices, HOA says homes in the prime £2 million-plus price bracket are being sold for £296,000 or 14.5% less than their asking price.“There are significant reductions at the top end of the market,” says HOA Chief Executive Paula Higgins (pictured, left).Also, homes for sale in the £1.75 million to £2 million bracket are being sold at an average discount of £225,000, she says, while homes for sale between £1.5 million and £1.75 million are being sold at a £142,219 discount on average.Properties with an asking price of £1.25 million and £1.5 million are agreeing final offers for £92, 970 less, the research shows.HOA’s estateagent4me tool, which is available on its website, was built by Oxfordshire-based tech firm United Legal Services (ULS) which also has a stake in HOA.Home Owners AllianceAlthough used to help vendors find the best agents by comparing their market performance and making it available via the tool, estateagent4me is also a conveyancing leads generation tool.It has helped ULS gain a significant share of the conveyancing market, although ULS has also grown by acquisition.In 2016 it bought B2B platform Conveyancing Alliance for £7.2 million. It enables agents to offer clients their own white-labelled conveyancing service but also earn a fee from Conveyancing Alliance, which also trades as Agency Convey. Home Owners Alliance HOA Paula Higgins estateagent4me August 9, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

A third of tenants have to wait ‘too long’ for deposits to be returned, claims Which?

first_imgA new investigation into the rental deposit system has revealed that a third of tenants are forced to provide a deposit to their new landlord while waiting to have their previous deposit returned.Some 31% of these tenants then turn to friends and family to fund their ‘second deposit’  while 9% borrow money off loan sharks or use their credit card, while the rest rely on overdrafts, says consumer organisation Which?It is calling on the government to both review the system to prevent this ‘two deposits’ problem and also tackle the other major area of conflict for tenants; contested deposit deductions.Its report also recommends the recently-launched slew of insurance-based deposit schemes because they “potentially help tenants better transition when moving between rental properties”.Millennial rental depositsThe report also found that Millennials get a rougher deal from the renting process and are more likely to encounter problems with letting agents.This includes being asked to pay a holding deposit and be pressurised into making a quick decision about a property.Which? also discovered that among those who had money taken from their deposits, half disputed the deduction.The two most common deductions are for inadequate cleaning of the property prior to moving out and damage identified during exit inventories.Tenants also find the process of disputing a deposit deduction ‘too much’ during an “already stressful process”.“The redress system across the sector can be complex and confusing for consumers and may not be operating effectively for tenants where they believe they have been treated unfairly,” the report says.Eddie Hooker (left), CEO of government-approved scheme, disagrees with many of the points within the Which? report.He says: “While I recognise that the systems and processes of deposit protection may need updating to deal with today’s rental market, having carried out extensive research I do not believe that overhauling the current system in favour of, for example, no deposit insurance alternatives, offers any greater protection for tenants.”  MYDEPOSITS rental deposits Eddie Hooker Which?

USA: Raytheon Tests New Tomahawk Block IV Cruise Missile

first_img View post tag: Tomahawk View post tag: Navy April 29, 2014 Equipment & technology Raytheon Company successfully completed a passive seeker test designed for a Tomahawk Block IV cruise missile using company-funded independent research and development investment. The captive flight test, using a modified Tomahawk Block IV missile nose cone, demonstrated that Raytheon’s advanced, next-generation; multi-function processor can enable the cruise missile to navigate to and track moving targets emitting radio frequency signals.For the test, the nosecone of a Tomahawk Block IV missile was equipped with passive antennas integrated with Raytheon’s new modular, multi-mode processor, and fitted to a T-39 aircraft. Flying at subsonic speed and at varying altitudes, the aircraft simulated a Tomahawk flight regime. The passive seeker and multi-function processor successfully received numerous electronic signals from tactical targets in a complex, high density electromagnetic environment.“Completion of this test is a significant milestone in Raytheon’s effort to quickly and affordably modernize this already advanced weapon for naval warfighters,” said Mike Jarrett, Raytheon Air Warfare Systems vice president. “We have assessed our company-funded multi-mission processor at Technical Readiness Level 6, enabling it to move to the engineering, manufacturing and development phase. Besides Tomahawk, the processor could be used in other sophisticated weapon systems.”A Raytheon-funded active seeker test with the company’s new processor inside a Tomahawk nosecone is planned for early next year. That event will demonstrate the processor’s ability to broadcast active radar as well as passively receive target electromagnetic information – a critical step in enabling the missile to strike moving targets on land and at sea.[mappress]Press Release, April 29, 2014; Image: Wikimedia View post tag: Cruise View post tag: Raytheon USA: Raytheon Tests New Tomahawk Block IV Cruise Missile Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: Raytheon Tests New Tomahawk Block IV Cruise Missile center_img View post tag: IV View post tag: Naval View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Block View post tag: New View post tag: Tests View post tag: Missile Share this articlelast_img read more
