Kimberly (Kym) Lucas was chosen as the 11th Bishop of the Episcopal Church in Colorado during its 131st Annual Convention held at Saint John’s Cathedral in Denver on Oct. 27.The Rev. Kym LucasOne of two candidates, Lucas was elected on the fourth ballot, receiving 124 of 173 clergy votes and 237 of 306 lay votes. In order to be elected, a candidate needed to receive two-thirds votes from both the clergy and the lay delegates, voting separately as orders in the same balloting round. The second ballot was invalid due to a reporting error after the announcement of the first ballot. The other candidate was The Rev. Ruth Woodliff-Stanley, canon to the ordinary of the Episcopal Church in Colorado.Lucas has served as rector of St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C., since January 2012. Previously, she was the rector of St. Ambrose Episcopal Church in Raleigh, North Carolina, from 2005 to 2011.Notified her of the election results, Lucas said:“I am both amazed and thrilled that the Holy Spirit has called us to minister together! The Episcopal Church in Colorado is an extraordinary and unique branch of the Jesus Movement. I enjoyed the short time I was able to spend in each region, and I look forward spending more time with you, getting to know one another, and discerning how God will use our gifts to proclaim Christ’s kingdom. The next few months will be full for me as my family and I plan our transition, but know that I am eager to be with you. Your confidence and love humble me, and I pray that I will be a faithful steward of both as your bishop.”Woodliff-Stanley, in response to the election, extended a message of gratitude to the diocese and prayers for Bishop-Elect Lucas:“Beloved Community, Amada Comunidad,“I give thanks to God for the election of The Rev. Kym Lucas to serve as the 11th bishop of the great Diocese of Colorado. I offer my heartfelt congratulations to you and to your new Bishop-elect.“My prayers are with you and with Mother Kym and her family as you prepare for a new season of ministry together across this vast and beautiful state.“If I have been even a small part of this historic moment of your electing the first woman bishop and the first African-American bishop of Colorado, I say praise God! And I have one admonition: support her, with all your heart, mind, and soul. Support her when the road is easy and when the road his hard. Support her.“Dios es bueno. Todo el rato. Dios los bendiga, todos y cada uno.God is good. All the time. God bless you, each and every one.”Lucas grew up in Spring Lake, North Carolina, and received her bachelor’s degree in biology from Wake Forest University. She received her Master of Divinity, New Testament, at Union Theological Seminary in New York. Lucas and her husband, Mark Retherford, have four children.Pending consent of a majority of the bishops with jurisdiction, Lucas will be ordained and consecrated on May 18, 2019, in Colorado.

Best of the Backcountry Gear

first_imgThere’s no time where gear means more than when you are out on your own in the wild. To that end, here’s the stuff that not only made the backcountry safer but also more enjoyable this winter.1. DPS Wailer 112RPIn the early ’00s, DPS’s Peter Turner worked with Shane McConkey to develop the legendary Volant Spatula, the original reverse-camber, rockered deep powder ski. The quick-turning Wailer 112 is the evolution of that now-ubiquitous aesthetic. It’s rockered, but unlike those prototypes it features lots of sidecut and a touch of camber. And we know we say this about every ski these days, but it really can do it all—on an early-season trip to Whistler it was  shockingly stable at speed and effortless in pow. But the deal-breaker is the weight—the carbon and nano verison ponies up at just 4.19 pounds each in a 190 cm ski, making it simple to schuss up the skin trail. $1,249 (Pure construction), $799 (Hybrid construction); dpsskis.com2. Black Diamond Carbon MegawattThis fat boy—125 mm underfoot—does not move like a Clydesdale. The carbon construction keeps the latest iteration of the popular Meg down to 9 pounds, 5 ounces in a 188-cm pair. The rockered tip and slightly rockered tail give it floatation. You just won’t find another ski this wide that tours this well. $829; blackdiamondequipment.com3. Liberty VariantAvon-Colorado-based Liberty skis added titanal along the edges of its new Variant (145/113/132). Pair that strength with the brand’s bamboo constructon and you get a big, stable touring ski that serves day-to-day duty in the wildly varying snow conditions of the Front Range backcountry. $839; libertyskis.com4. Jones Hovercraft SplitDon’t be fooled by the shorter length of the oddly shaped Hovercraft. This baby can lope thorugh deep powder fields just as easily as it can rip off freestyle moves on natural backcountry terrain features. The spilt capability makes it an effective mountaineering tool, too. $699; jonessnowboards.com5. Drift Innovation HD GhostThe HD POV cam has become required gear these days and the easy-to-operate Ghost will record video and snap off still photos on the go, thanks in part to a two-way LED remote control that makes it easy to focus on the riding at hand rather than futzing with camera controls. $399; driftinnovation.com 6. La Sportiva SpitfireTipping the scales at just 44 ounces per boot, the Spitfire wants to be the first up the trail. That makes it ideal for rando racing but a low profile Grilamid shell and a Carbon Reinforced Polymer cuff gives the boot enough downhill oomph for local exploration. Best of all, they switch from tour to ski mode with one easy flip of the top buckle. $899; sportiva.com7. Dynafit One PXDynafit took its wildly popular (but insanely minimalist) TLT5 and gave it a touch more downhill guts to create a light touring boot for the mainstream. Weighing in at just 27.5 ounces per boot, it features a similar one flip buckle for walk or tour mode, but it’s warmer, roomier and more confident on the downs. $640; dynafit.com8. Ortovox Zoom PlusHere’s an affordable beacon that’s basic and effecive. It uses just two buttons and a simple display screen but still takes advantage of Ortovox’s smart, three antenna system to locate victims buried at odd angles. $299; ortovox.com9. S.O.G. PowerlockMelding ski patrol and special ops, this is one multitool you will want in your pack when things go wrong. The clippers will cut through a quarter and the small saw is damn sharp. $114; sogknives.comlast_img read more

Court amends criminal rules

first_imgCourt amends criminal rules June 15, 2004 Gary Blankenship Senior Editor Regular News Court amends criminal rules Prompting the governor to look into the rulemaking process Senior Editor The Florida Supreme Court has approved changes to the Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure to handle the determination of mental retardation of defendants facing the death penalty, angering Gov. Jeb Bush who said the court failed to follow state law.Bush said he intended to consult with legislative leaders about constitutional changes to prevent the court from usurping legislative intent through court procedural rules.The court ruled in a unanimous per curiam opinion on May 20 in Amendments to Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure and Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure, case no. SC03-685. Justices Barbara Pariente and Raoul Cantero also wrote concurring opinions.The opinion noted that the legislature passed F.S. §921.137 in 2001 which barred the execution of mentally retarded persons and established a method for determining whether defendants were mentally retarded. The law required the determination of retardation to be made after conviction and after a jury recommended death or the prosecution announced its intent to seek death even though the jury recommended life imprisonment. It also established a clear and convincing level of proof and was not retroactive.The next year, the U.S. Supreme Court in Atkins v. Virginia, 336 U.S. 304 (2002), held that executing the mentally retarded violated the Eighth Amendment, and that states were free to establish their own methods for determining mental retardation.The Criminal Procedure Rules Committee submitted proposed rules to implement F.S. §921.137 before the Atkins decision. After that ruling, the court on its own motion published rules (which were noticed in the May 15, 2003, Bar News ) and invited comment.“In response to the proposed rules, this court received comments,” the opinion said. “Circuit Judge O.H. Eaton and the Criminal Court Steering Committee submitted proposed rules as a substitute for the rules proposed by the court. We accept these comments and suggestions as being well advised and now adopt a rule which is primarily in the form adopted by Judge Eaton and the committee. We appreciate their work with respect to this issue.”The rule establishes procedures for four types of cases: cases that have not begun when the new rules go into effect October 1; cases when the trial has started as of October 1; cases when a direct appeal is pending; and cases when the direct appeal is final.The rule also did not set an evidentiary standard for the judge to use in determining whether the defendant is mentally retarded and did require that the determination be made before trial in all future cases.Pariente wrote her concurring opinion to address the evidentiary standard issue. She noted the court had been cautioned that the clear and convincing standards in state law would likely be found unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.While Atkins did not address a standard, in Cooper v. Oklahoma, 517 U.S. 348 (1996), “the Court held that a state law requiring a defendant to establish incompetence to stand trial by clear and convincing evidence was unconstitutional,” Pariente wrote. By not including a standard in the rules, she added, “The issue will then come to us in the form of an actual case or controversy rather than a nonadversarial rules proceeding.”She also suggested that the legislature revisit the issue, since the Atkins ruling came out after it enacted the law, and noted that most states that have addressed this issue have adopted a preponderance of the evidence standard.“Amendment of the burden of proof could eliminate potentially lengthy litigation on the constitutionality of the statutory standard and the delay in capital cases in which mental retardation is an issue,” Pariente wrote.Chief Justice Harry Lee Anstead concurred in her opinion.Cantero, in his concurring opinion, addressed why the rules require the determination of mental retardation to be made before trial, instead of after conviction and after a jury has recommended death or the prosecution seeks to override a jury life-sentence recommendation. Of 25 states with similar laws, 11 require it pretrial, five have no time — which allows it to be pretrial — and only three, including Florida, have it after conviction, he noted.“A death penalty case, involving the ultimate penalty, invokes a host of pre- and post-trial procedures, as well as requirements for court and counsel, that do not exist in any other context,” Cantero wrote. “To ensure that those procedures, which can be time-consuming and expensive, are invoked only when death is a possible sentence, the defendant, the state, and the judicial system all should desire a prompt determination of mental retardation.”He listed eight specific areas where the courts could save money, including that judges and counsel would not have to meet the higher standards for death penalty cases, penalty phase investigations and proceedings would be eliminated, the jury would not have to be death qualified, and no penalty phase trial would have to be conducted.Pariente and Anstead concurred in Cantero’s opinion.The court’s action created Rule of Criminal Procedure 3.203 and amended Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.142(c), which allows prosecutors to appeal when a judge rules a defendant is mentally retarded.In a May 20 letter to Secretary of State Glenda E. Hood reporting he had signed SB 44, which extended the deadline for inmates to seek a review of DNA evidence in their cases, Bush noted he opposed the court last year suspending the original DNA testing deadline of October 1, 2003. He said it was a use of judicial rulemaking to override legislative policy.“For the same reason, I disagree with the action taken today by the Florida Supreme Court that significantly revises legislation addressing the issue of mental-retardation claims in capital cases,” Bush wrote. “Whether the court agrees or disagrees with legislative policy, the court should not subordinate state laws, written by representatives elected by the people, to the court’s own policy preferences.“I intend to review the court’s use of its rulemaking power and discuss potential state constitutional reforms with legislative leadership in the near future.”Earlier this year, a proposed constitutional amendment was introduced in a Florida House committee that would remove from the Supreme Court the right to write court procedural rules and instead give it to the legislature.The amendment was discussed but never acted on, and Bar President Miles McGrane reached an agreement with Rep. Gus Barreiro, R-Miami, sponsor of the bill. That agreement would add legislators to the procedural rules committee and also see that lawmakers are informed about recommended and pending rule amendments.The court’s opinion and the new procedural rules can be seen on the court’s Web site at www.flcourts.org.last_img read more

Intelligent credit union branding

first_img 18SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Lorraine Ranalli Lorraine Ranalli is Chief Storyteller & Communications Director, as well as published author. Her most recent work, Impact: Deliver Effective, Meaningful, and Memorable Presentations, is a pocket book of public … Web: LorraineRanalli.com Details “Hi-Q is not only a competitive representation of our individual abilities, but it also represents our school.” The sentiment of Academy Park High School (Sharon Hill, Pa.) student Jordan McGowan, echoed by teammate Amel White, describes Delco Hi-Q, the nation’s oldest, continuous academic quiz competition in which 21 Delaware County, Pa. high schools compete.Monsignor Bonner & Archbishop Prendergast President, John Cooke, also touts the attributes of Hi-Q. His support is such that despite his many responsibilities at the Philadelphia Archdiocesan high school, he volunteered to coach his school’s team this year.Jay DeFruscio, Cooke’s friend and counterpart at rival Cardinal O’Hara High School, is also a fan of Hi-Q. “It’s [Hi-Q] the perfect forum by which our academically gifted students can showcase their talent,” DeFruscio said.In addition to the opportunity for students and schools to exercise and promote academic prowess, the business community also finds Hi-Q attractive. After all, the program was started in 1948 by then Delaware County based Scott Paper Company. Within two decades, the company expanded Hi-Q to four other states where it had sub-headquarters. Not long after the paper company underwent an acquisition, Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union (FMFCU) seized the opportunity to attach its brand to the academic sport and keep it running.“We [FMFCU] felt it was vital that this academic program continue,” said Rick Durante, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility.FMFCU funds and manages Delco Hi-Q and oversees the national program. Durante is Hi-Q’s national director. In 2017, Durante stepped in as quizmaster when actor Tom McCarthy retired after serving in that role for four decades.“There are many places we could have put our money,” Durante said, “but this unique academic quiz competition has a tremendous impact on so many schools and students in our community. So, for us, the choice to invest was obvious.”Intentional or not, the Credit Union carries out the beliefs of its namesake Ben Franklin, who famously said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” FMFCU has as its mantra, “leading with education.”FMFCU is not the only credit union to attach its name to Hi-Q. In Mobile, Alabama, New Horizons Credit Union is a program sponsor.Academy Park High School student Kiara Kidd said, “Programs like Hi-Q give us a platform to showcase our ability.” The experience Kidd, her teammates, and all Hi-Q participants realize is also recognized by other businesses, which have joined FMFCU in Pennsylvania, New Horizons in Alabama, and sponsors of the programs in Wisconsin and Washington State to support this commendable high school activity.Hi-Q has been described as cerebral athletics. School auditoriums are the arenas. Each competitor’s intellect is the necessary equipment, and they spend months suiting up by reading, studying, and practicing with their teammates and coaches, commonly known as advisors. The more competitive schools field a bench of future players to study alongside and practice with the current team.Each competition pits three schools against each other with the goal of amassing as many points as possible by answering questions correctly and preventing opponents from picking up bonus points. Competitions consist of a series of 16 questions of differing categories, including history, mathematics, current events, art history, and sports. Preparation involves more than simply knowing facts. Students have to prepare to answer under pressure because the questions are timed, making the quiz a challenge of brainpower, skill, and mental acuity. Each school competes in three regular season match-ups in an effort to accrue cumulative points. The teams with the most points advance to semi-final competition.To learn more, visit DelcoHiQ.org.last_img read more

The first meeting of the Working Group for the drafting of the Law on Tourist Boards, Tourist Tax and Membership Fees was held

first_imgA major reform of tourist boards in Croatia is underway, as well as the way the CNTB works, which has been announced several times, and the first meeting of the Working Group for drafting the Law on Tourist Boards and Promoting Croatian Tourism, the Law on Residence Tax and Amendments to the Law has been held. on membership fees in tourist boards was held at the Ministry of Tourism on October 17, where Minister of Tourism Gari Cappelli participated as coordinator.Minister of Tourism Gary Cappell-i announced that tourist boards must deal more effectively with the promotion and management of destinations, and that is why preparations are underway to amend the Law on Tourist Boards, which is planned to be completed by the end of the year. “The direction of drafting this law is in the direction of remaining county tourist boards, but that they must strengthen their knowledge in promotion, branding, marketing and PR. We also want to reform the Main Office of the Croatian National Tourist Board, from which we expect greater engagement in the promotion of the country in certain markets, but with full control over the efficiency of every kuna spent in the process. Given the rapidly changing trends of supply and demand, access to markets and the concept of promotion, it is necessary to be more up-to-date and faster to adapt to new challenges. Our goal is to reform the entire system of tourist boards and representative offices in the world in a way that they are more efficient, proactive and ultimately more competitive, which is a prerequisite for the continued growth of Croatian tourism. ” Cappelli points out and concludes that we need stronger promotion of special products, but also much better promotion of the continent.The working group for drafting laws in tourism consists of members and stakeholders from different segments of the tourism system in Croatia.You can see the list of members below:Ivan Arambašić (Davorin Purgarić, replacement member), Croatian National Tourist BoardMartina Bienenfeld (Luka Benko, replacement member), Zagreb Tourist BoardVladimir Bakić, Dubrovnik-Neretva County Tourist Board (Joško Stella, Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board, replacement member)Denis Ivošević (Ana Pibernik, replacement member), Istria County Tourist BoardRujana Bušić Srpak, Vukovar-Srijem County Tourist Board (Antonio Sobol, Osijek-Baranja County Tourist Board, replacement member)Rudi Grula, Međimurje County Tourist Board (Ksenija Tomić, Krapina-Zagorje County Tourist Board, replacement member)Krunoslav Kapetanović (Šime Klarić, replacement member), National Association of Family and Small HotelsNada Prodan Mraković (Marlena Floigl, replacement member), Croatian Association of CountiesToni Mateša (Helena Mesarić, replacement member), Association of CitiesMartin Baričević (Franjo Bukal, replacement member), Association of MunicipalitiesRonald Korotaj (Iva Bahunek, replacement member), Croatian Hotel Employers AssociationTomislav Fain (Ivana Maltar, replacement member), Association of Croatian Travel AgenciesTihomir Nikolaš (Adriano Palman, replacement member), Croatian Camping AssociationNenad Šepak (Krešimir Tomić, replacement member), Croatian Chamber of CraftsTomislav Popović (Željko Kukurin, replacement member), Croatian Employers’ AssociationAntonia Urlić (Nenad Nizić, replacement member), Croatian Chamber of CommerceDanijela Čavlović (Lana Petrović, replacement member), Croatian Chamber of Commerce-Family Accommodation AssociationDragan Magaš, Faculty of Management in Tourism and Hospitality – OpatijaIvan Herak, Faculty of Economics – OsijekKatarina Miličević, Institute of TourismSinisa Topalovic, Horwath HTLĐurđica Šimičić, Jadranka ddSnježana Brzica, Assistant Minister, Ministry of TourismTonči Glavina, State Secretary, Ministry of TourismGari Cappelli, Minister of Tourism, Coordinator of the Working Group.In accordance with the Tourism Development Strategy until 2020, the Implementation of the Tourism Development Strategy of the Republic of Croatia until 2020 presupposes an efficient system of destination management at the local and regional level and coordination of national tourism policy with the development of destination products. Ensuring that the tourist system takes on the role of destination management, it is necessary to redefine the tasks and responsibilities of regional and local tourist boards, while respecting the principle of financial 82 self-sufficiency.The rationalization of the system implies the application of the principles of spatial-functional and production integrity, whereby the tourist communities will gradually take over the function of complete destination management organizations (DMO). This includes their appropriate staffing and education and training for destination development management, which especially refers to the tasks of strengthening the competitiveness of the destination and the ability to coordinate and harmonize the often conflicting interests of stakeholders in the destination.Attachment: Tourism Development Strategy of the Republic of Croatia until 2020last_img read more

High on life on the hill

first_imgFor many parents of school aged children, and even those with children yet to come, it’s the fact that it’s in the school catchment zones of West End Primary and Brisbane State High schools. 4 bed 3 bath 3 car pool It took more than three years and a trip to the land court for Mr Lynch to get Council approval.“By the time you get to the back of the house it’s at least three storeys high and you talking about the days when they had a 7.5m (limit) and I was trying for a 11.5m high house print,” he said.“It’s on a 900sq m (876sq m) lot…but it’s only 10m wide, so when you’re trying to deal with Council on a 10m wide site, they treat you as if you’re on a small lot.”He said his brief, was like any city house brief – “full of contradictions”.“You’re trying to get light into your house, but you’re trying not see your neighbours,” he said.“You’re trying to get privacy, but as well as that you’re trying to get views.“It’s a 365sq m house internally, that’s without the garage, so you’re trying to get a large house on a small block, even that’s a contradiction isn’t it?”More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus14 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market14 hours ago Owner Paul Lynch said while it might be a “happy accident” the suburb has turned out this way – you couldn’t argue that it was well connected – with taxis, buses, trains, scooters, ubers and even ferries.“My wife started scootering to work, and she’s worked out she can get to the CBD in 12 minutes on a Lime Scooter,” Mr Lynch said.A commercial architect by trade, this was the first house that he designed.“A lot of the finishes are commercial finishes, so they actually don’t date,” he said.“It’s got acoustic ceilings like you find in a hospital and it stops the echo when you’re having dinner parties.” Now that his boys were teenagers, it was time to opt for a low maintenance lifestyle.“The kids don’t use the backyard anymore,” he said.“It’s this little oasis in the middle of the city and it’s quite lovely, but… if the teenage boys aren’t kicking a soccer ball around in it, then there’s no point having it.” He said you needed a three-storey house in the city if you want to have some green space.“I think you need to always steal views, and I think this (house) does a good job of stealing views,” he said.“What you’re trying to do is use your backyard and your neighbour’s backyard as your view…that’s really important.”So important, that it was Mr Lynch’s most prized part of the home. “My favourite thing about the home is actually the view out the back,” he said.“I adore the fact that you can have a city house, with basically a bushland view, with possums and lorikeets and you can’t hear the city, you can’t hear the traffic.“There’ almost not a room in the house a city view or a bushland and suburban view.” PRICE ON APPLICATION Having fallen in love with the locale over the past 20 years, Mr Lynch said they would downsize to a four-bedroom apartment down the road. The opportunity exists to purchase this home on its own 438sq m block with the option to also buy the joining vacant land to make it 876sq m. For those with tertiary aged offspring, it’s just a ferry stop away from the University of Queensland.For the social butterflies, it’s within walking distance of West End’s Boundary St, South Bank and even Brisbane City. House of the Week: 155 Dornoch Tce, Highgate Hill.Location, location, location! It’s a catch phrase we’ve all heard too many times before – but it is the highlight of this beautiful home.
