His preferred medium was wood. He used a soldering iron to burn beautiful pictures like this one.For my father, every day was pretty much the same. My father was the emotional carpet in our household: his steadfast personality made him the peacemaker in our home. As I wrestle with my mental illness, however, I feel like a captain on a sea of emotion when everyone else walks on dry ground.Like Father: Like Daughter“You remind me of myself,” my father said to me once. Not only did my father unconditionally love and support me, but also, he treated me and my ideas with respect. Countless times in my life my father would say, “I am proud of you”. My father was always positive and encouraging even during my frustrations. Today, I am profoundly grateful. Even if we were arguing, I could see in his eyes that he saw “a bit of himself” in me. The only time I ever saw my father get angry was when I lashed out at my mother. I only did that once. Before 2019, I never doubted my abilities because of how my father treated me. As a woman in this culture, I think that is one of the best gifts a father can give his daughter.Faith and CreativityIn Genesis 1: 27 it says, “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Our perception of God is formed in large part by our experiences with our earthly father and mother. My father had a profound impact on my perception of God.However, I have wrestled a lot with my faith as a person with a mental illness. The churches’ behavior has not helped. While they “prayed the demons out of her”, a friend of mine was held down for four hours during a psychotic episode. As I confessed to my mother recently, being on medication makes it hard to discern that “still small voice” mentioned in the Bible (1 Kings 19:11-13).During my first art class after college, I had an epiphany of God as creator. Each time I start a drawing, I marvel at the beauty, symmetry, and diversity that coexists in nature. Despite my insecurities, “just doing it” brings me joy. Yet, after each drawing is finished, I see a myriad of mistakes. My drawings are “my interpretation” of the picture.The Gift of RosesWe are living in tumultuous times. I see good people who are angry, hurting, and afraid. I am grieving for this country. As a thoroughly Midwestern white woman, what can I do to bring about reconciliation?As Brene’ Brown says, “Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity, and change”. I give you art as a means of empathy and support for everyone suffering during these complex issues. Perhaps through art, I can bring some solace to your soul. Perhaps then we will all begin to think creatively and bring about innovation and change. HomeOpinionColumnsFollowing in My Father’s footstepslast_img read more

Maybe because it was spring weather, the topic turned to how our springs used to begin and we all seemed to have similar responses. In this area, it was not official until you began to see plumes of smoke rising from a field’s edge or saw a long strip of white cloth material fastened to the ground. As they would appear, it was officially tobacco bed-making time.There was a time, not that long ago, that raising tobacco was a standard crop in this area, known as the “cash crop”. I know that in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s burley tobacco was the key to making a profit in a year of farming. When growing this crop, the very first item on the menu was make a seed bed. From here on, I will refer to them as “tobacco beds”. At our farm, the standard sized bed was 100 feet long by 12 feet wide. Creating the bed was done as early in the spring as possible in hopes of having a chance to set your tobacco as early as possible.To create the tobacco bed, we dragged up as much wood as we could possibly find to place on the soil to create as hot a fire as you could, necessary to sterilize the soil and keep the weeds away. This was a very arduous task that would take as much help as you had and as many hours as could be put into it. If wood became scarce then every sawmill in the area was hit up to give away their scrap lumber.My cousin Walt found a man down on Red Bank Road in Cincinnati who had a few acres of pallets he was giving away as the zoning board had informed him they had to go. We hauled many truckloads to the farm and stacked them for storage until we needed them. Of all the wood we ever used this was the hottest and most consistent for burning. We tried to burn 215 feet of bed if possible. starting in the afternoon and finishing by the light of the moon. (I really enjoyed standing by the burning embers under a bright moon.) Getting a steady fire going was not an easy task and what would help was some old worn-out tires. Farmers saved the old tires just for this purpose and even though the black smoke filled the sky, we never saw or heard from the EPA. (One more reason to refer to that as the “good ole days”.)After the burning, it then had to be raked to remove the large ashes and to level the seedbed. I know my Dad would keep his tobacco seed in a file cabinet in the house to keep it safe. Also, he had purchased all of the tobacco bed cottons he would need and stored them out of harm’s way as they were costly. He then would mix the seeds with a bag of fertilizer and cast it on to the seed bed. This always impressed me as he could send the seed and fertilizer sailing into the air and it would land so evenly that when the plants arose they looked perfectly spaced.After the seeds were sown, we would use a lawn roller to run lightly over the seed to pack slightly so they stayed in one place and wouldn’t be blown away. Then came the cottons and they got their name of course because that was the material they were made from. Strong in one way, the cottons were also fragile in another way. Pull too hard or not pay attention and you had just damaged many dollars’worth of material and although my Dad did not yell he surely did frown when this happened. The cotton was fastened on the ground with wire pins to keep it in place for the growing season.All the tasks I have listed took a lot of time to and once the cottons were placed you could stand back and appreciate all of the time and labor that went into the making of the tobacco bed, or beds. As spring moved forward, the farms would begin to show tobacco beds here and there. In fact, if a farm didn’t have cotton able to be seen you would wonder why not or what was wrong. Tobacco beds were a major part of the area’s landscape. The more you could see, the more it looked like the season was off to a positive start.The burning of the bed at our farm signaled the beginning of spring. Mom would bring out a picnic basket that contained hot dogs to cook over the fire along with baked beans and potato salad and a huge pitcher of sweetened iced tea. Here would be our first family picnic and first iced tea for the spring. Also in the basket was a bag of marshmallows because the day would not be complete without burning a couple of them black from the fire.In case you forgot I earlier said that Dad had made the bed 215 feet long for a 200- foot bed. He had a good reason. Since he was always busy with this farming, he would burn off a small place so he could sow his leaf lettuce, radishes. onion sets, and tomato and cabbage seeds. Here would be his early garden. Time was valuable and gardens were too. There was a man who worked for the township doing all the road maintenance. Once he saw Dad was making beds he would stop and ask Dad where he had sown the lettuce. During the spring, he would visit daily for items to go with his lunch. That was about as country fresh as it could be.I took the time to talk about this as even years before tobacco ceased to be raised the procedure of making the tobacco bed had also ceased and was replaced with raising the plants just like plants at the store are raised that you buy to set out. It was another part of the most labor-intensive production of a crop in this area’s farming. Each step had a procedure and with the procedure came a sense of pride in your work. I know I have done it and before me, I had seen it done and yes, I was proud that I knew how. Do I miss it these days? Actually since I do not farm anymore, I must say no I do not miss it, but I will always have my memories of it and those never cause you to be sore.Rick Houser grew up on a farm near Moscow in Clermont County and loves to share stories about his youth and other topics.

Electricity prices are set to stay relatively flat, ranging between 10.6 cents and 11.8 cents per kWh, depending on the amount of economic growth and the performance of oil and gas prices and availability.

Electric Demand Set for Moderate Growth in EIA Long-Term Outlook Though electricity demand fell last year, the new long-term energy outlook from the U.S. Energy Information Administration indicated demand is set for an average annual growth of 0.9 percent through 2050.center_img However, the administration predicted direct-use generation will outpace the growth of utility-based generation thanks to rooftop solar and natural gas-fired combined heat and power systems. Linkedin TAGSSCE Facebook Twitter In all cases, generation costs are set to fall by 10 percent over the study period in response to low natural gas prices and increased generation from renewables. Transmission costs will grow 24 percent and distribution will grow 25 percent thanks to the need to replace aging infrastructure and accommodate new reliability standards. Nuclear energy, which remained nearly steady over the last decade, will start a continued decline thanks to lower revenues that will be especially sharp in the high oil and gas resource and technology scenario. On average, nuclear generation is set to fall from 99 GW now to 79 GW in 2050, with no new plant additions expected after 2020.  CoalEnergy StorageGasNuclearRenewablesSolarWind Vietnam: scaling back coal-fired plans toward gas, renewables Venture Global LNG adds Zachry to EPC team for Gulf export terminal construction Suitors for halted Bellefonte nuclear project ask TVA to consider climate in reviving sale Linkedinlast_img read more

Bayonne Mayor Davis could face recall effort led by childhood friend

By John Heinis/Hudson County ViewPat Desmond, a longtime Davis ally, Michael Alonso, a Republican whose run for state Assembly, freeholder and the city school board and Donald Baran, Jr. submitted a document with the clerk’s office yesterday seeking a petition to recall Davis just 19 months into his term.“The Recall of James M. Davis is initiated due to the mayor’s abject failure in meeting the needs of the City of Bayonne Citizens and taxpayers,” said a statement of the recall committee on the notice of intention to recall.The group cited Davis hiring city directors from out of town, such as Business Administrator Joe DeMarco, Davis’ Chief of Staff Andrew Casais (also his nephew), City Attorney Jay Coffey, the ongoing controversy surrounding a possible new mosque site in Bayonne and complaints surrounding a new animal control contract as examples of the retired police captain failing during his first term in office.Desmond declined to elaborate beyond the statement of the recall committee since the committee is awaiting a response from the clerk’s office.Bayonne City Clerk Robert Sloan told Hudson County View today via email that “it has not been determined yet whether it has been properly filed,” but in the event that it is able to move forward, state statute would require the signatures of 25 percent of city voters registered during the last general election.Sloan added based on the records with the clerk’s office, 32,711 voters were registered in 2014, meaning 8,178 verified signatures would be required in 160 days to make for a successful recall and force a special election.Recalls are notoriously difficult to accomplish in New Jersey in modern times, with one of the more notable local recalls coming in 1985, where then-North Bergen Mayor Tony DiVincent was recalled by a group led by Joe Mocco and a relatively unknown school principal named Nick Sacco (h/t New York Times).Davis did not immediately respond to a call or voicemail seeking comment.

[fve]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUNU_HHA0BI&feature=youtu.be[/fve]“I’m here today to talk about the growing divide between the city and the Hoboken Housing Authority. As you all know, last week was the fourth shooting in the 4th Ward since September and the second this month,” HHA resident Nick Lenzi said during the public portion of last night’s council meeting.“I planned on being here at the last meeting but I wasn’t able to make it. Now, I deeply regret not speaking up sooner because now there’s [been] a fourth shooting, and this time, a fatality.”According to the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office, Rivera was fatally shot at 300 Marshall Dr. on the afternoon of Tuesday, January 24 by two men from Jersey City: Khalif Geiger, 20, and a 17-year-old minor.Virtually no details surrounding the circumstances of his death have been released yet and the murder remains under investigation.“I’m concerned that three of the four shooting have occurred within 100 yards of a now shut down police precinct. Last Tuesday, while I was at work, I was alarmed to hear what sounded like 15 police cars racing by our office – we had no idea what was going on,” Lenzi continued.He further stated that given the city’s “incredible communication capability,” residents should be notified when an active shooter is on the loose, also questioning why no media associated with the city ever provided updates on the situation.Lenzi concluded by stating he feels that the housing authority is being “neglected” and that he’d like to help be part of a positive change in the neighborhood.Ramos, a lifelong resident of the 4th Ward, heard the message loud and clear and wanted residents to know that the recent murder and drug activity at the HHA has led to important discussions among city officials.“Lots has been done at the housing authority, but not enough. And you can never do enough to try and alleviate an issue that’s been going on for far too long, and every time we do make strides, there have been setbacks,” explained Ramos.The former Assemblyman added that the council recently had “a great dialogue” revolving around drug activity at the housing authority and other parts of the city. He concluded by inviting everyone to a public meeting at 221 Jackson St. at 7 p.m. on Monday.Mayor Dawn Zimmer, County Prosecutor Esther Suarez, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Christine Johnson, as well as members of the council and housing authority board are all expected to be in attendance to address resident’s concerns.Mello, who is also a commissioner on the HHA board, praised the efforts of Executive Director Marc Recko and said he anticipates many improvements coming to the housing authority in the near future.“Things that are gonna be coming in front of the board of commissioners at the housing authority: plans for extremely secure doors, more cameras, an employee at the housing authority that will monitor what does violations [sic],” stated Mello.Mello also expressed great satisfaction in everyone working together to get the necessary funding for the aforementioned amenities.“If anything positive has come out of this incredibly tragic event, it’s that people have gotten in the same room and received nothing but positive feedback [from] this city: every entity that can possibly provide money or help to acquire money for those improvements.” Crime TAGSdavid mellohoboken city councilHoboken Housing Authorityruben ramos SHARE Bayonne Comments are closed.
