Former City Hall Building Used to Launch Boys & Girls Club,…

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by City of YelmFollowing the Relocation of City Hall, Yelm will repurpose the former City Hall building to establish a Boys & Girls Club, and a Veterans Resource Center.“This building is such a valuable resource for our community,” City Administrator Michael Grayum said. “It’s been used as the City Court, City Library, Council Chambers, City Hall, and this agreement will continue the trend of using the building as a public resource.”Following City Council approval to relocate City Hall, the City invited and encouraged public comment regarding the use of the building, both in person and on social media. The General Government committee garnered community input and recommended using the building to serve youth, veterans, and provide a space for business development. After careful consideration, council elected to remove the business incubator and provide more space for the Boys & Girls Club.The Yelm Boys & Girls Club will be established through a partnership with the Thurston  County Boys & Girls Club, and Yelm Community Schools. The club will provide a space for school aged kids to take part in programs that focus on character development to better prepare youth for real-world success. Mayor JW Foster and other City administration are continuing to work with the Boys & Girls Club to provide after school sports programs and other resources in Yelm.The Yelm Veterans Service Center will be established collaboration with the Lacey Veterans Service Center, American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Wear Blue: Run to Remember, a Hero’s Promise, and other veteran organizations. The Service Center will provide programs that support the process of healing and growth to our local veterans.The recent land acquisition to relocate City Hall allowed the space to better support the demand of our growing city, and created an opportunity for these organizations to commence in Yelm. Additional funding will not be required from the City, as the tenants are responsible for making modifications to the interior of the building, while the City will continue to maintain the exterior aspects of the building.At the March 27 Council Meeting, City Council adopted a resolution, proposed by City staff to authorize Mayor Foster to enter into appropriate lease agreements to utilize the space.“Our vision is to help organizations start, grow, and expand into our community by reducing barriers to entry, and promoting community services in the City of Yelm,” Grayum said. “We are excited for this new adventure, along with many others that are beginning in this community.”last_img read more

Creston steals Nelson’s thunder in Cats 4-0 victory over Leafs

first_imgA shorthanded Nelson Leafs team provided little, or no, resistance for the Creston Valley Thunder Cats in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action Wednesday night at the NDCC Arena. Even with their Junior A netminder Josh Williams between the pipes, Creston out shot the Green and White 28-15 en route to a 4-0 shutout. Creston, second in the Eddie Mountain Division, scored twice on the power play less than a minute apart to go up 2-0 after the first period. Logan Styler and James Severs scored with Leaf defenceman Max Daerendinger in the penalty box serving a penalty for interference and unsportsmanlike conduct. Daerendinger was assessed the second penalty after being incensed with the first interference call. Carson Cartwright added a pair of second period goals to complete the scoring. Former Nelson Alec Wilkinson finished the game with three points against his former club. Nelson, like the team has been doing most of February, played the game with less than a full lineup — 14 skaters Wednesday. The Leafs, saddled in fourth spot in the Murdoch Division standings, complete the regular season this weekend, hosting Spokane Braves Friday before playing in Grand Forks Sunday. Williams, acquired from the Alberta Junior Hockey League prior to the January roster deadline but has been hurt since the deal, is expected to get at least one of those starts in goal before Nelson begins post season play against the Beaver Valley Nitehawks in round one of the Murdoch Division playoffs.last_img read more

Donegal beef farmers among those participating in Cork protest

first_imgDonegal beef farmers have travelled to Cork on Wednesday as the government are being accused of failing the beef industry at a time when the sector has lost €100 million as a consequence of Brexit.Members from the Irish Farmers Association gathered at Cork City Hall today where a meeting of the cabinet is currently taking place; the purpose of the gathering was to highlight the financial hit the beef sector has taken as a result Brexit.Speaking on Wednesday, IFA President Joe Healy highlighted some of the price reductions that beef farmers have had to face. He said: “They keep promising ‘we will look after you on Brexit’. We have the ‘big three promisers’: Leo Varadkar; Phil Hogan, and Simon Coveney.“They have all promised big. Well, it’s time to deliver big.“Ask any farmer here today who was trying to sell young bulls since last Christmas. Not alone were they savaged on price – some factories turned their backs on them and walked away. It was a disgrace,” he added.“Whenever there is a problem, he seems to hide in the dressing room until the match is nearly over. Minister, you need to come out of the dressing room fully togged out and fight for Irish farmers. “Our beef farmers are the heart and soul of the rural economy. They are the engine that keeps rural Ireland alive.“The people who kept this country going after the economic crash and who continue to be the cornerstone of our economy.”Donegal beef farmers among those participating in Cork protest was last modified: May 1st, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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)last_img read more

SA energy campaign enlists youth

first_img Over 1.2-billion people live in the dark, and Gigaba said that if people do not begin to save they may never know the benefits of internet access, medical technology or just sheer light and warmth. Many South African youth are heavily dependent on energy-consuming appliances to simply survive during winter, but Gigaba encouraged them to find other ways to stay warm, such as wrapping themselves in a blanket and a hot water bottle. “Energy efficiency is as simple as adapting to what 49M urges, and that is doing more with less,” he said. “Influencing parents to switch off the geyser during peak hours and not leaving the fridge door open for longer than necessary puts less strain on them when having to foot the electricity bill at the end of the month.” He also reminded them to spread the message to their families and peers to “flick that switch” when leaving the room. SAinfo reporter 1 August 2012 South Africa’s 49m energy efficiency campaign is enlisting the help of the country’s youth in saving electricity, with Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba hosting a youth dialogue workshop in Johannesburg on Tuesday. The 49m campaign – an Eskom initiative so named to reflect the population of the country – was launched in March last year by Gigaba and Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe as a response to the country’s constrained power system, climate change, the recent economic downturn, and rising electricity costs. The campaign encourages individuals and corporates to lead energy-smart lifestyles to help save the planet and their pockets. “The Y-Generation has power to influence change if each and every one of them could realise their power,” Gigaba said at Tuesday’s session at the Hyatt Hotel in Rosebank. It formed part of an initiative of Johannesburg-based radio station YFM – which holds regular monthly sessions with young leaders who are key influencers in their communities – in partnership with 49m.‘Break away from energy-dependent mindset’center_img In his address, Gigaba urged young South Africans to break away from an energy-dependent mindset that is fast becoming obsolete. “Energy inefficiency is no longer a sign of wealth or power, instead it has been associated with irresponsibility to its far-reaching negative effects,” he said.last_img read more
