Courts face fresh challenges in funding implementation plans

first_img July 15, 2003 Gary Blankenship Senior Editor Regular News Courts face fresh challenges in funding implementation plans Senior EditorWhile the Florida justice system fared well in the legislature’s Article V revision bill this year, the real test comes when those changes are incorporated into next year’s state budget, according to Supreme Court Chief Justice Harry Lee Anstead.And that could be a challenge, considering budget cuts this year have hurt the state court system, particularly in its ability to help children in trouble, Chief Justice Anstead told the Judicial Luncheon held at the Bar’s Annual Meeting.“Florida remains the finest justice system in the United States of America,” Anstead reported to the several hundred lawyers and judges at the luncheon. “But it is a justice system at risk.”There’s no more ominous sign of the risk that the new budget just passed by the legislature, he said. Holding up the June 15 edition of the Bar News, Anstead said the damage was best shown by the headline on the front page on how children’s programs with the court were severely reduced.Particularly hard hit were the pilot dependency courts operating in five circuits, which Anstead said had cut in half the time children had to spend in foster care. Lawmakers, since they didn’t have money to extend the program statewide, excised it from the budget.“When we do have times of stress and economic hard times, why is it always seemingly the ones who are least able to help themselves that are hit the hardest?” Anstead said. Noting some have said there is no silver bullet that will fix social ills, he added, “I don’t believe that for one moment and the closest thing we have to a silver bullet in our society is the way we treat our children, all of our children. This [the funding cut] is a tragedy that hopefully with your help will not be repeated next year.”The Article V revision bill came subsequent to Revision 7, the constitutional amendment passed by voters in 1998 mandating that the state take over from counties more of the financing of trial courts. The legislature must accomplish that by July 1, 2004.HB 113A, passed in the first special session, incorporated the recommendations of the trial judges for handling that change, Anstead said. He noted that Gov. Jeb Bush signed the bill on June 25, the day before the Judicial Luncheon.“Although the legislature has now adopted the scheme we recommended. . . the actual dollars will come in the next legislative session, in 2004,” the chief justice said. “That is the critical year we must all address. That is when we will know whether our outstanding trial system will take a hit and move back, or whether they will continue to move forward.”It’s ironic, Anstead said, that in the wake of September 11, President Bush has touted the rule of law as the antidote to terror as well as problems in the Mideast. Yet state courts around the country, where 95 percent of all cases are handled, continue to struggle.“Wouldn’t it be a tragedy of the first magnitude that while our president is going around the world calling for the rule of law. . . that back home in Florida, the fourth most populated state, a state led by his brother, Gov. Bush, that the rule of law would slip and go backwards?” he asked.“In Florida, the quality of justice that is dispensed in those courthouses is of the highest kind. It is by example that we provide President Bush this model,” Anstead added. He called on “everyone in this audience to go to your chief judge and this chief justice and offer to do whatever you can to see that the rule of law remains at the same high standards it is today.” Courts face fresh challenges in funding implementation planslast_img read more

How to teach a credit union to catch a phish

first_imgHackers want two things: Money and personal information. The fact credit unions have access to both makes them a target for bad actors, and one way fraudsters get what they want is through phishing.Phishing is the practice of sending fraudulent emails to trick an individual into revealing valuable information — including passwords, credit card numbers, and more. Phishing has been around for a decade or more, says Kevin Hill, the information security expert for Orange County’s Credit Union ($2.1B, Santa Ana, CA), yet it has become more prevalent in recent years as more sophisticated cybersecurity has made other forms of hacking more difficult.“Most organizations have the right security controls in place to make actions like trying to get through the firewall obsolete,” Hill says. “Phishing is more focused on the human element. They are trying to gather information by tricking a person rather than a system.”Hill’s work has helped Orange County’s achieve a phishing failure rate that is 2% lower than the industry average. In this Q&A, he discusses the steps the credit union is taking to combat phishing emails, how to train associates, what measures credit unions should consider adopting, and more. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

New County Homeless Shelter Construction Begins

first_imgBy Laura D.C. Kolnoski |OCEANPORT – Site work has started at a 3.1-acre location on the former Fort Monmouth where footings are being poured for a 4,500-square-foot temporary homeless shelter for adult men and women to be run by Monmouth County.If construction progresses as planned, the shelter is expected to open next summer, according to County Administrator Teri O’Connor. The exact occupancy date will be based on the final municipal inspections and availability of utility services, O’Connor said.The one-story “stick built construction” structure at the corner of Courier Avenue and Murphy Drive will have a 12-bed dorm for men, a four-bed dorm for women, separate restrooms and showers for men and women, a laundry room, a clothing sorting and storage room, a counseling office and a security desk. The central resident common area has a kitchen and pantry, a 16-person dining area, a computer nook and a seating area.The construction contract, awarded in May, went to Mixalia Enterprises, LLC of Shrewsbury, in the amount of $1.895 million, which will be funded by the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA), the agency overseeing the fort’s redevelopment.The shelter’s services are funded by the county and administered by the Affordable Housing Alliance, an organization that has worked with the county addressing the needs of homeless residents in recent years.The shelter will offer temporary housing and other services until more permanent housing and treatment services are identified. The former emergency homeless shelter, also in Oceanport, was destroyed in Super Storm Sandy. Its population was assigned to the John L. Montgomery Center in Freehold Township. That facility was purchased by a private concern two years ago.By statute and agreement with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the county’s homeless shelter must be located in the Oceanport section of the fort. A suitable permanent site was identified last year, accepted by county, FMERA and Oceanport officials, and conveyed to the county by FMERA for $1.Two existing structures on the property have been demolished, O’Connor said, adding that engineering, roadwork and utility relocation are also part of the preliminary work. The site already includes a paved parking area. A groundbreaking ceremony was held there Aug. 9, attended by county and local officials.“We are able to hold this groundbreaking due to an all-out cooperative effort between the county and FMERA,” said Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone. “We are grateful to everyone who had a hand in getting us to where we are today for their vision and support.”Original plans called for the homeless shelter to be made from two pre-fabricated modular structures connected by a bridge portion. That plan fell through last year when county officials learned prefabricated trailers were in short supply, as they were sent to other parts of the country where natural disasters like hurricanes and fires had occurred. Rather than wait, plans were expanded to include traditional stick built construction.“This new shelter will provide a temporary safe haven for homeless adults and lead them onto a path to a better quality of life,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Lillian G. Burry, the county’s FMERA representative. “There are strict criteria participants must follow. It’s an interim place to be sheltered until they can transition into new circumstances.”The county houses a fluctuating number of about 18 up to 30 homeless adults who are required to work or look for work and permanent housing during daylight hours. Occupants are allowed to remain at the emergency shelter for a maximum of 30 days.“We are committed to providing a safe location for people who are down on their luck to get back on their feet and become productive members of society. That’s what everyone wants,” O’Connor said.This article was first published in the August 23-30, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Buncrana businesses suffering as barricades remain after fire

first_imgBusiness owners and local residents in Buncrana are suffering due to a section of the town being blocked off after last month’s fire.Barricades remain at the Ferris Lane junction on Main Street following the major fire which destroyed The Plaza ballroom and John Barr’s shop.Almost two months later, local representatives are calling for alternative safety measures to reopen the road to pedestrians and motor users. Inishowen Sinn Féin Councillor, Jack Murray said: “Both myself and Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn have been regularly contacted by local residents and business owners who have become extremely frustrated with the duration of the closure of the Ferris Lane junction.“Businesses are suffering and people’s livelihoods are being put at risk. A huge section of the population of the town, based around Marian Park and Maginn Avenue, is also inconvenienced when walking to the Main Street.“In large urban areas, alternative safety measures are employed. Both Pádraig and I have requested that the potential for a scaffolding tunnel – which protects pedestrians from falling debris but doesn’t impede their journey – is investigated and installed.“People have now been patient for far too long and this extremely important junction must be opened up.”  Buncrana businesses suffering as barricades remain after fire was last modified: March 21st, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:buncranaBusinessCllr Jack Murrayfirelast_img read more

Football for Hope in Nairobi

first_img9 September 2010In the dusty streets of Mathare in Nairobi, Kenya, dreams were nurtured as the young people of the township celebrated the opening of the Mathare Football for Hope Centre – the second of 20 such centres being built across Africa as a legacy of the 2010 Fifa World Cup™.The facility has brought a new sense of belief to the youth of this area – a place where young people are confronted with social challenges such as unemployment, crime, illiteracy, HIV/Aids and poor sanitation.This is the first centre to be opened outside South Africa. The inaugural centre was opened in Khayelitsha township on the outskirts of Cape Town last year as part of the 20 Centres for 2010 campaign initiated ahead of the World Cup.The programme aims to build 20 centres around Africa that will address some of the challenges faced by the continent, including education and public health.The Football for Hope centres will feature football mini-pitches along with classrooms and health care facilities, providing young people with access to counselling, health and educational services.For Silas Lukale, the opening of the Mathare Football for Hope Centre has great significance. Born in poverty-stricken area of Kayole, just a stone’s throw away from Mathare, Lukale is hoping that the Centre will empower many others like him and help to improve their lives.“The reality is, when you come from here, opportunities are very scarce. Sometimes there is a will, but without opportunities that doesn’t really help,” Lukale told Fifa.com on Saturday after playing an exhibition match on the new astro-turf pitch at Mathare. “I believe this will create such opportunities, it will inspire many people my age to start dreaming beyond their current circumstances.”The Mathare Football for Hope Centre will be run by the Mathare Youth Sports Association (MYSA). The centre will help MYSA its leadership training, environmental clean-ups, HIV/Aids awareness campaigns and other community-oriented activities.Fifa’s head of corporate social responsibility, Federico Addiechi, said there was “no better deserving organisation to host this centre than MYSA. They have done a lot of good work for the Kenyan youth for the past two decades, and we hope that this centre will further strengthen their work.”MYSA chairman Bob Munro was upbeat about the possibilities that will be created by the Mathare Football for Hope Centre. “For the last 24 years, MYSA has provided hope to many young people. We believe that football is a powerful tool to communicate our message, and that is where this centre will play a vital role.”Jan Coetzee, project manager of Streetfootballworld, a partner in the 20 Centres for 2010 programme, said: “After seeing the enthusiasm in our centre in Khayelitsha, I think we now see the value out of these centres.”Six further centres are due to be completed in the next four to five months in Namibia, Mali, Rwanda, Ghana, Lesotho and Mokopane, South Africa.Source: Fifa.comlast_img read more

Obama heaps praise on Tutu

first_imgThe US president said Tutu would be missed for his insight and activism, but that the world would continue to learn from his example. Nobel Peace Prize His work earned him a Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his non-violent struggle against apartheid. After South Africa’s transition to democracy in 1994, he led the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which uncovered the horrors of apartheid-era abuses. Obama said Tutu was the voice of the voice of the voiceless. “For decades he has been … a voice of principle, an unrelenting champion of justice.” Extraordinary efforts “We wish the Archbishop and his family happiness in the years ahead,” Obama said. US President Barack Obama praised Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu on his official retirement, calling him a moral titan and dedicated peacemaker. He lauded Tutu for playing a pivotal role in overturning apartheid, and for his extraordinary efforts in pursuing reconciliation in the new South Africa. The Nobel laureate formally stepped away from public life on Thursday to spend more time at home with his family. Source: BuaNews Tutu announced in July he would retire on his 79th birthday, which fell on Thursday, after years of fighting for justice and an end to apartheid in South Africa, and of travelling the globe to highlight human rights struggles worldwide. “He has also been an outspoken voice for freedom and justice in countries across the globe; a staunch defender of the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons; and an advocate for treatment and prevention programs to stop the spread of HIV/Aids,” Obama said. 8 October 2010last_img read more
