Presbyterian Church (USA) – Online Committees, In-Person Plenaries https://seasonsubmit.com/presbyterian-church-usa-online-committees-in-person-plenaries/ Fri, 21 Oct 2022 16:03:08 +0000 https://seasonsubmit.com/presbyterian-church-usa-online-committees-in-person-plenaries/ The General Assembly Bureau Committee met for its monthly Zoom meeting on October 20, 2022.

The General Assembly Bureau Committee met for its monthly Zoom meeting on October 20, 2022.

The General Assembly Office Committee has approved a new format for the 226th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Last summer, the 225th General Assembly voted for a hybrid Assembly in 2024 with some changes. Committees will meet virtually while plenaries will be held in person in Salt Lake City. At its fall meeting last month, COGA began considering a handful of options for how to structure committee meetings. On Thursday, General Assembly Office staff proposed a new proposal that would schedule online committee meetings over three days, a two-day travel break, followed by several days of plenaries in Salt Lake City. COGA approved the format unanimously.

Plan Highlights:

  • Committees will be encouraged/required to meet for learning opportunities, riverside conversations and group building prior to the official start date
  • The committees will meet for three days with a schedule adapted to different time zones
  • The election of the moderator/co-moderator will take place during the first plenary after the committee meetings
  • All moderator candidates will be fully trained prior to election
  • If hybrid commissioner/advisory delegate participation is approved, participants will be required to work around the Salt Lake City mountain time zone.

“We know people have struggled to recruit and based on the feedback we know it’s easier to organize lives around one focused time instead of multiple times,” said Kate Duffert, responsible for OGA for GA Business and Per Capita. “For Young Adult Advisory Delegates, it’s difficult for them to attend summer school around multiple GA dates.”

Although the format is approved, the finalization of the dates is still under consideration. OGA staff review format plans. Plan A would have committees meeting online Saturday-Monday, June 22-24, with plenaries taking place Thursday-Monday, June 27-July 1.

“This plan is dependent on the availability of space and rooms needed for committee meetings,” said Deb Davies, OGA meeting services manager. “Our current contract with the convention center would start on Wednesday the 26th. We would be releasing a lot of the rooms that we have contracted for four nights after July 1. »

Davies said Plan B would see a brief opening plenary and committee meetings Wednesday through Friday, June 26-28, with plenaries taking place Monday through Friday, July 1-5.

“We like the idea of ​​wrapping up General Assembly before July 4, but it’s the willingness to meet on the 4th that has won us the best rates in Salt Lake City,” she said.

Among the remaining challenges are how to provide technical support to no less than 12 committees and the necessary training for committee moderators, vice-moderators and assistants.

“This Assembly will be different from all previous Assemblies. But as an educator with experience teaching online, running a productive, well-run meeting on Zoom requires a completely different skill set than doing it in person,” said COGA member Robin Pugh. and former leader. “We will need to provide training on best practices for leading on Zoom.”

OGA staff will meet with Salt Lake City convention planners as well as the Utah Presbytery next week to begin discussing the 226th Assembly and bring back financial implications for both plans at the November meeting. of COGA.

BVSD forced to suspend Route 704 bus https://seasonsubmit.com/bvsd-forced-to-suspend-route-704-bus/ Fri, 14 Oct 2022 16:19:52 +0000 https://seasonsubmit.com/bvsd-forced-to-suspend-route-704-bus/ The nationwide shortage of bus drivers has hit families in Dutch schools.

The nationwide shortage of bus drivers has hit families in Dutch schools. The Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) had to make the very painful decision to suspend the 704 bus route indefinitely. This line covers the Coal Creek and Wondervu areas and brings students to Nederland Elementary School and Nederland High School Middle Senior.

It’s easy to point fingers and blame the school district just for this situation. The fact is, many school districts across the state and nation are facing similar situations. There are school districts where superintendents must cover bus routes. It is not uncommon for routes to be consolidated or suspended. Many bus drivers have retired. Not as many people hold the required CDL license as before. School districts compete with companies, counties and states for drivers. Simply put, there are not enough people willing to be drivers for the demand there is for drivers.

Considering that Dutch school buses cover a very large amount of territory on their routes, the folks at the Dutch Bus Terminal have done a phenomenal job maintaining the routes. They’ve been stretched, like the neighborhood, for a while now.

Dutch bus drivers have a different situation than other parts of BVSD. Mountain bus drivers have additional training hours due to geography, weather and road conditions. Anyone who lives here for a long time knows these drivers need to be prepared to drive on snow, slush, ice and everything in between.

Since Dutch schools are a kindergarten to 12th grade system, drivers may have very young children on the bus as well as high school students. Driving a very large vehicle with a group of young people can be difficult.

Now think of the amazing kids drivers see growing up over the years. Whether it’s barely being able to step up those giant leaps, seeing them carry their musical instrument in middle school, or wearing their letter jackets. You meet parents over the years and a sense of community is created. Bus drivers in the Netherlands are an integral part of this community.

I attended a K-12 school in rural South Dakota and can still name the five bus drivers and see the order in which they lined up. I didn’t even take the bus. I was a city kid (there was no service for city kids), not a country kid. Not riding the bus and knowing their names shows how close our community was and how important bus drivers were to our school.

Perhaps there needs to be a deeper sense of gratitude in our society for drivers and all the people who work in jobs that are often seen as inferior. Maybe as a community we can create positive change to help solve this problem for local families and schools.

Hanging the Route 704 bus is not something BVSD wanted to do. BVSD wants children on buses and in Dutch schools. They know how much it weighs on families. A local relative who is affected by the route suspension believes there are around 20 families affected by the decision. It’s too much.

Now is not the time to say you don’t have kids in school, that’s not your problem or to start pointing fingers. The community as a whole should embrace this issue and come to the aid of the families who are affected. What could be more inspiring for our children than to think together and work together for them?

BVSD has been recruiting more bus drivers for the past few years, using many different avenues to advertise and using incentives such as signing bonuses. With all their efforts, they know that more retirements are coming at the end of the year and that other changes could be made to the routes.

If you or know someone who would like to apply to become a BVSD bus driver, you can apply at jobs.bvsd.org/.

California Fish and Game Commission Holds Hybrid Meeting

At its October meeting, the California Fish and Game Commission acted on several issues affecting California’s natural resources. Here are some items of interest from this week’s meeting held in Kings Beach, Lake Tahoe with an option for the public to join via Zoom.

Newly appointed Commissioner Anthony Williams joined the stage at this Commission meeting. Williams served as commissioner from 2015 to 2019.

Regarding whether to list the Western Joshua tree as threatened under the California Endangered Species Act (CESA), after lengthy deliberations, the Commission continued the agenda item until its meeting in February 2023, keeping the public record open for the specific purpose of continuing to provide input from tribal governments.

At the request of the Commission, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has agreed to co-host with local tribes an emergency summit regarding tribal actions, environmental concerns, and needs related to conservation efforts of the Clear Lake Hitch.

For the 50th year in a row, the Commission has designated a lake and more than 25 miles of waterways as Heritage and Wild Trout Waters, celebrating two of the state’s many scenic trout fisheries. This year the Commission accepted CDFW’s recommendation to designate approximately 30 miles of the North Fork Mokelumne River which supports a robust trout fishery consisting of coastal rainbow trout, brook trout and brown trout , and Silver Lake, a remote lake in Tulare County that contains a heritage population of Little Kern golden trout.

Commission passed 90-day extension to emergency regulations for conditional catch of Southern California rainbow trout after approving CDFW’s request for a six-month extension to deliver its review report one year on the application for listing the species under CESA.

The Commission has approved an application for an experimental fishing license to test the feasibility of catching king crabs and other deep-sea crab species using crab pots (traps).

The Commission passed emergency regulations to amend and clarify fyke net regulations to minimize the risk of federally protected species entanglement and to extend the current identification requirement in place south of Pt Arguello, Santa Barbara County, to apply statewide.

The Board cleared a Notice of Intent to Amend the Rules to allow CDFW to accept the electronic display of licenses on a CDFW mobile application.

The full Commission – Chair Samantha Murray, Vice-Chair Erika Zavaleta, Commissioners Jacque Hostler-Carmesin, Eric Sklar and Anthony Williams – were present.

The agenda for this meeting and supporting information is available on the Commission’s website. An archived audio file will be available in the coming days. The next Plenary Commission meeting is scheduled for December 14-15, 2022 in the San Diego area.

###

The California Fish and Game Commission was one of the first wildlife conservation agencies in the United States, even before the US Commission of Fish and Fisheries. There is often confusion about the distinction between the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and the Commission. In the most basic terms, CDFW implements and enforces regulations set by the Commission, as well as provides biological data and expertise to inform Commission decision-making.

Boulder County Commissioners approved the Wolf Driveway earthworks off Caribou Road during a 1 p.m. meeting on Thursday, September 22, 2022. Sam Walker of the Community Planning and Permitting Department introduced a review of limited impact special use to authorize 8,000 cubic yards of non-basic earthworks for the improvement of an existing access road at 834 Caribou Road.

The proposal submitted by Emily Wolf is in the Forest Zoning District, about a mile west of the intersection of Caribou Road and Highway 72.

Commission Chair Marta Loachamin was unable to attend, so Commissioner Claire Levy chaired the meeting and said it was a quasi-judicial hearing.

A special use review is required for this non-fundamental earthwork as it exceeds 500 cubic yards of fill; this earthwork is analyzed in accordance with special use standards outlined in a Boulder County land use code. The parcel in question is legal building land because it exceeds the minimum size of 35 acres required in the forest zoning district. It is developed including an Earthship residence and two unauthorized accessory structures.

According to the story submitted with the application documents, the existing driveway was created by following the route of an old mining road that existed when the current owner purchased the property. A building permit was issued for the Earthship in 1993, but the owner was never able to close the permit because the driveway did not meet county access standards.

Walker said the site is north of Caribou Road. The area will have impacts but department staff have no concerns. The existing driveway is steep, has geohazards and is within a rural preservation planning area. It is adjacent to the county open space.

According to the engineer, the project will involve 4,000 cubic yards of cut and fill. A small branch of the driveway will remain as it is. The southern portion goes to the Earthship, and the proposed alignment of the driveway alters the grades to meet multimodal standards. The portion of the parcel where the proposed driveway improvements will take place is entirely on the north side of Caribou Road.

Although Earthship’s building permit has now expired, the applicants intend to have the building permit re-opened once improvements to the driveway have been completed so that the permit can be finalized and the Earthship can receive a certificate of completion. ‘occupation.

The upgraded driveway will follow the path of the existing driveway in sections, but deviate from that route as it approaches the Earthship location. The topography of the plots is steeply sloping upwards from Caribou Road, requiring long stretches of road and several switchbacks to gain enough elevation to reach the Earthship’s current location.

The proposed driveway reconfiguration is the result of several discussions between staff and the owner that formally began with an on-site pre-application conference in 2019.

Following a second pre-application conference in early 2022, the Director determined that a new site plan review was not required to approve the Earthship as a new residence and that the existing permit may instead be reopened once approval for a new driveway is granted. Therefore, this review only considers the proposed realignment of the driveway.

Staff advised that the majority of the driveway design submitted appears to meet multimodal standards (MMTS) and recommended a condition of approval that the driveway must be built to meet these standards. Staff therefore recommend conditions of approval requiring that the access road be built to meet the MMTS and any portion of the access road not meeting the MMTS should be given an individual design exception.

In addition, an access permit will be issued for the Caribou Road access point at the time of the building permit review. Staff have determined that, meeting all conditions, the proposal can meet all applicable Boulder County Land Use Code criteria for a limited impact special review. Therefore, staff recommend that County Commissioners conditionally approve the Wolf Driveway earthworks.

Candidate Emily Wolf and her engineer, Dana Smyly, said the Earthship had electricity and a septic tank. It is a habitable house. They’ve worked with the fire department on the hill and they’ve worked with Planning and Permits staff to make sure everyone is comfortable with the changes.

The Commissioners approved the Special Use Review Permit.

The Commission met on October 4, 2022, at 10:30 a.m., and meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays. For more information on the meetings, go to pub-bouldercounty. writemeetings.com/

PHOTO BY HAYDEN HARDT-ZEMAN

September 2022: Many days in the 70s and 80s brought the average temperature well above normal. Lows that should have been in the 30s and 40s often went into the 50s. A persistent upper level ridge roughly capped the precipitation pattern, resulting in a 40% reduction in humidity. Only three events brought moderate rain. Smoke from the fires in the Pacific Northwest was carried by frequent northwesterly winds aloft, giving us days of hazy skies.

Temperature: The upper level ridge brought warm temperatures to Colorado, especially evident in our overnight hot lows. The average high temperature was 69 F with an average low of 46 F. These combined to make the month 5 degrees above normal. The highest temperature for the month was 83F on the 6th, the lowest temperature was 43 on the 10th. The lowest was 32F on the 11th.

Precipitation: No significant system occurred during the month. We had rainy episodes from the 9th to the 11th; from 21 to 23; and the 30th. In each case, a Pacific disturbance triggered the downpours. The monsoon was not a factor in our September rainfall. Total rainfall was 1 inch, with 1.74 inches being normal. Nederland had no measurable snowfall for the month.

The winds: Only one day with significant winds… 45 mph on the 23rd.

Other Features: Generally a pretty boring upper level pattern that went from a broad ridge to low troughs mostly going north to us. The aspens were drawing their colors at the end of the month.

Outlook for October: October brings cooler temperatures often below zero, with an average high of 54F and an average low of 29F. October has 1.26 inches of humidity but has great variability. Snow comes in with a monthly total of 11 inches, but over the years we’ve seen near zero to two feet. Seven days have winds over 40 mph. Long-term models point to a major event around the middle of the month with likely rain and snow. The outlook for the whole month points to warm and humid conditions.

CDFW will begin offering 365-day fishing licenses for 2023

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) will begin selling 365-day fishing licenses much earlier than expected, thanks to extensive staff efforts to expedite sales. Beginning November 15, 2022, anglers in California will be able to purchase a 2023 fishing license which will take effect January 1, 2023 and will last for the entire year. All licenses purchased on or after January 1, 2023 will be effective from the date of purchase for 365 consecutive days.

“I am proud to announce that we are able to sell one-year licenses several months ahead of schedule,” said CDFW Director Charlton H. Bonham. “I applaud the staff who have worked tirelessly to bring this benefit to California anglers who have been applying for the 365-day license for a very long time.

Assemblyman Jim Wood (D-Healdsburg) introduced AB 817 in February 2021, allowing a transition of California fishing license validity from one calendar year to 365 full days from the purchase. Prior to this change, anglers who purchased their license after New Year’s Day were charged the same price for fewer fishing days, and some are unwilling to pay the full price of a license when purchasing it later. in the year, resulting in fewer permit sales. . This change will allow anglers to receive 365 days of benefits after purchasing a license at any time of the year.

“Thanks to the dedicated efforts of CDFW staff, California will transition to our new 365-day fishing license even sooner than expected,” Wood said. “This license will encourage more Californians to fish and increase revenue from fishing licenses that fund critical state fishing and conservation programs. Making fishing more accessible really supports communities that depend on outdoor recreation and tourism, like my district in Northern California.

The idea, which has been discussed and desired by the California fishing community for many years, has been embraced by CDFW’s Recruit, Retain, Reactivate (R3) initiative. The concept was developed with the stakeholders responsible for drafting the R3 initiative, including Wayne Kotow of the Coastal Conservation Association – California (CCA CAL).

“Providing a fishing license that offers greater value and incorporates 21st century technology is long overdue,” said Kotow, executive director of CCA CAL, sponsor of AB 817 which led to the new licensing option. “This is also an important step in implementing California’s R3 program, which aims to increase the number of anglers and other outdoor recreationists. We are thrilled that Assemblyman Wood’s persistence on this issue has paid off and we are proud to partner with CDFW in achieving this important milestone for California anglers.

CDFW’s R3 team works alongside partners and stakeholders, like CCA CAL, to create goals and strategies, and then implement changes that reduce barriers to participation in outdoor activities.

To purchase a fishing license, please visit CDFW’s online sales webpage. At checkout, there is an additional option to sign up for automatic fishing license renewal, which allows anglers to automatically purchase and receive their new license when their current license expires, so anglers in California never run out. a day of fishing!

Want to become a fisherman but don’t know where to start? Visit the CDFW R3 webpage to find the latest information on fishing programs, regulations, tutorials and additional resources. Be sure to check out California’s Wild Kitchen tab to see recipes for use on harvested fish as well as additional informational videos found in the R3 Harvest Huddle Hour (R3H3) section.

About Listeria Infections
Foods contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell tainted, but can still cause serious and sometimes fatal infections. Anyone who has developed symptoms of Listeria infection should seek medical attention and inform their doctor of possible exposure to Listeria.

Additionally, anyone who has consumed any of the recalled products should monitor their symptoms over the next few weeks, as it can take up to 70 days after exposure to Listeria for symptoms of listeriosis to develop.

Symptoms of Listeria infection can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle pain, severe headache, and stiff neck. Specific laboratory tests are needed to diagnose Listeria infections, which can mimic other illnesses.

Pregnant women, the elderly, young children, and people such as cancer patients with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk for serious illnesses, life-threatening infections, and other complications. Although infected pregnant women have only mild flu-like symptoms, their infections can lead to premature delivery, newborn infection, or even stillbirth.
