House District 30 Candidates Talk about Funding Non-Profits

first_imgMeyers: “I’m also philosophically opposed to state tax dollars funding non-profit corporations. I do support programs such as Pick.Click.Give. and I do support local initiatives but no it’s not the business of the state of Alaska to be supporting non-profit entities.”  The candidates voiced their opinions about whether the state should use taxpayer dollars to help fund non-profits. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Kenai Peninsula residents will decide between four candidates tomorrow for who will represent House District 30. Non-partisan candidate Daniel Lynch… Republican candidate Gary Knopp… District 30 is the most highly contested race that Kenai Peninsula residents will weigh in on in the state’s House of Representatives tomorrow. And the Alaska Constitution Party’s J. R. Meyers… Lynch: “To be brief I’ll say no I don’t agree with it much, a case by case basis.” Thornton: “I think yes and no, it’s not a clear-cut answer. But when you start doing that you need to find the balance or not balance so that you’re not giving anybody specific treatment over another.” Knopp: “[An] example is the Kenai Peninsula Tourism and Marketing Council, we use taxpayer dollars to promote marketing for the borough instead of creating our own department to market the borough. CARTS, which promotes transportation, receives federal and state funding, grant funding, and occasionally municipal funding. They provide services that in some cases should be better served than what we can do as a public entity.” Democratic candidate Shauna Thornton…last_img read more

AFC Championship 2020: ‘Giant killers’ Titans look to trump ‘Comeback Kings’ Chiefs

first_imgLast Updated: 17th January, 2020 16:18 IST AFC Championship 2020: ‘Giant Killers’ Titans Look To Trump ‘Comeback Kings’ Chiefs Few would have expected the Tennessee Titans to come out on top against the Patriots, let alone the Baltimore Ravens. They will look to effect another upset. First Published: 17th January, 2020 16:18 IST AFC Championship 2020: ‘Comeback Kings’ Kansas City Chiefs well-primed for win at Arrowhead StadiumThe first time the Chiefs faced off against the Titans in the regular season was in Week 10, back in Tennessee. That outing did not end too well for Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. Derrick Henry, on the other hand, had a field day on the night as he ran for 188 yards and effected two touchdowns. The Titans ended up registering a 35-32 at the Nissan Stadium that night. Since then, however, the Chiefs have been impressing across the board. With Patrick Mahomes spraying passes all across the field, the Chiefs registered arguably the best comeback in the NFL this season in the Divisional Round game against the Houston Texans. Also Read | Lamar Jackson Leads Pro Bowl Voting By HUGE Margin; Russell Wilson, Patrick Mahomes FollowAs such, the Kansas City Chiefs will look to make it through to the Super Bowl for the first time since Super Bowl IV. Derrick Henry will be the focal point of the Chiefs’ defence. Interestingly, he could hold the key for both the teams. In every game that Derrick Henry has managed to register 100+ yards this season, the Titans have ended up on the winning side. Head coach Andy Reid, therefore, will have to take a page out of Mike Vrabel’s book to stop Derrick Henry, the way the Titans stopped Lamar Jackson earlier this month. Also Read | Lamar Jackson’s Early Win-loss Record Leaves Patrick Mahomes Behind.

Having beaten Tom Brady’s Patriots in the Wild Card round, few expected the Titans to make it past the Divisional Round. The mighty Baltimore Ravens, with their imposing 14-2 record, stood in the way. MVP frontrunner Lamar Jackson set the record books ablaze over the course of the season. The Titans, however, had an excellent gameplan for the Ravens star. Jackson was restricted to running laterally against the Titans, which restricted the impact he had on the night. While he did rush for 143 yards, a majority of those yards came through pass plays. Defensive coordinator Dean Pees and head coach Mike Vrabel must be credited for that.Also Read | Chiefs’ Eric Fisher Celebrates TD In Stone Cold Steve Austin Fashion, WWE Star Approves [email protected] gets you ready for Sunday with his 6️⃣ Stats to Know! pic.twitter.com/tjl8Psg3HF— Kansas City Chiefs (@Chiefs) January 16, 2020 Written Bylast_img read more

Walk Run for Breast Cancer Awareness

first_img Condom use now recommended as a prevention to Zika; sexually transmitted case found in Dallas Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 03 Oct 2014 – Cancer screening in Latin America and the Caribbean is very poor, and if not improved the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) says the number of women dying within that regional block will surge to as many as one million per year. It is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and tomorrow the annual walk which is designed to encourage a healthy lifestyle while raising awareness will happen from Graceway Gourmet to the Leeward roundabout. A 2013 report by PAHO exposed that men are dying due prostate, lung and stomach cancers mainly… and Caribbean and Latin American women; well the biggest cancer killer is breast cancer, closely followed by cervical cancer. Silvana Luciani, PAHO/WHO advisor was reporting to the Jamaica Observer when she shared that “the large number is very disconcerting…” The answer for the region, which sees women in rural or remote areas suffer most, is to tremendously improve screening and treatment. The walk and run of the National Cancer Society of the Turks and Caicos is also a fundraiser and it gets started at 5:30am.

ExLa Jolla Country Day teacher denied mental health diversion for sex charges

first_img Posted: April 22, 2019 KUSI Newsroom, Ex-La Jolla Country Day teacher denied mental health diversion for sex charges April 22, 2019 KUSI Newsroom SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A former La Jolla Country Day School teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with one of his 17-year-old female students was denied the option to complete a mental health diversion program in lieu of going to trial on charges of statutory rape, oral copulation of a minor and digital penetration of a minor Monday.Jonathan Sammartino, 35, is accused of engaging in a romantic/sexual relationship with “Jane Doe” between April and September 2016, in her senior year and after graduation. Sammartino and Jane Doe met on multiple occasions to engage in consensual sex acts, according to an arrest warrant affadavit.After the alleged victim lost her virginity to Sammartino — the son of U.S. District Judge Janis Sammartino — she disclosed the relationship to a friend, according to the arrest warrant.In July of last year, Jane Doe filed a crime report with the UC Berkeley Police Department, where she attends college, and identified Sammartino as the alleged perpetrator, according to the affidavit. In a pretext phone call, Sammartino admitted the past romantic/sexual relationship with the alleged victim, the affidavit states.Sammartino’s defense attorney, Gene Iredale, argued that a 2015 bicycling accident, in which Sammartino hit a pothole while riding in La Jolla and landed on his head, caused a brain injury that severely affected his client’s ability to regulate his emotions and make reasonable judgments, otherwise known as social disinhibition.Under newly enacted AB 1810, Iredale sought to have Sammartino undergo a diversion program, after which point the charges could possibly be dismissed and the arrest expunged from the defendant’s record if he successfully completed the program.The law — signed by then-Gov. Jerry Brown last June — provides for a two-year diversion program if it can be proved the defendant is suffering from a mental disorder that “played a significant role in the commission of the charged offense.”However, a subsequent law, SB 215, amended AB 1810 by precluding certain offenses from qualifying for diversion, particularly ones classified as “violent felonies,” such as murder and rape.San Diego Superior Court Judge Charles G. Rogers ruled Monday that he did not believe he had the authority to grant diversion because two of the charged counts, oral copulation and digital penetration of a minor, are classified as violent felonies.The charges were filed in September, as Sammartino completed his first week teaching AP Psychology at the Harker School in San Jose. He is on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of his criminal case, according to Iredale, who said his client has an “impeccable reputation” and is well-liked by his students.According to his LinkedIn profile, Sammartino taught at La Jolla Country Day from 2012 to 2016 and then taught at the French American International School in San Francisco before moving on to the Harker School.Sammartino, who faces four years and four months in prison if convicted, remains free and is due back in court June 13 for a preliminary hearing.
