first_imgLast Saturday supporters of Dr. Richard Moss for Congress braved the dropping temperatures  at the Four Freedoms Monument in Evansville to help him formally launch his campaign for 8th District Congressman. The crowd cheered enthusiastically as he spoke of creating a new conservative Republican Party.Dr. Moss said “Like many conservatives, I am disgusted with today’s “Stand-For-Nothing” Republican Leadership. Over the past year, they have caved on every major issue. Not one single critical issue did they stand up and fight for beyond meaningless Washington bluster and political theater. Republicans control both chambers of Congress thanks to us. They control overwhelming majorities of governorship’s and statehouses thanks to us. We didn’t send them there to work with Obama but to oppose him! Yet for the past year they have behaved no differently than a Democrat Congress would have. On the debt, Obamacare, amnesty, Loretta Lynch, the EPA, the Supreme Court, gutting the military, ISIS, Cuba, “fast-track status,” the Import-Export Bank, Planned Parenthood, securing the border, and the horrendous nuclear deal with Iran, the Republican leadership has been a reliable supporter of – Barack Obama. Republican leadership must be defeated beginning with House Speaker John Boehner and his loyal foot soldiers in the House including Congressman Larry Bucshon (8th Congressional District). On issue after issue, Larry Bucshon has voted with the Republican Establishment – and Barack Obama.We can no longer stand for business as usual. We can no longer accept big government Republicans like John Boehner and his acolyte Larry Bucshon who campaign one way and vote another. We need a new Conservative Republican Party that stands firmly on the side of liberty, limited government, and the Constitution, a determined, principled Republican party, as Reagan said, “of bold colors not pale pastels.” We also need a true conservative Republican representing the 8th Congressional donservative paristrict – not another Establishment Republican like Larry Bucshon. We need someone who will oppose the Republican Establishment and the Democrats and fight for American workers, American citizens, and America herself – someone who will vote to undo tyhe damage of the Obama years and restore American greatness. With your help, I will be that representative.”Dr. Moss is no stranger to conservatism as he has written articles published across the state for 10 years. An Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon from Jasper Indiana who also works out of Washington Indiana, he sees every day the effect the policies of this administration has on working class families.He has spent extensive time volunteering, speaking and visiting in the middle east, Israel, South and Central America, Africa and Asia and has first-hand knowledge of the role America plays in the world stage. His supporters believe as I do that he is the man who can best represent the 8th District in Congress.

A new contact zone has been adopted, a draft of the Dubrovnik Walls Management Plan by the end of the year

first_imgAt the UNESCO session held in Manama, Bahrain, from June 24 to July 4, 2018, the World Heritage Committee adopted the extension of the contact zone proposed by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia.In accordance with the new guidelines, the decisions of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee on the state of conservation of Dubrovnik’s historic core were presented in Dubrovnik. A so-called buffer zone has been designated, in which all planned projects will have to be developed and a heritage impact study. The UNESCO mission emphasized that the guidelines and levels of protection should be revised through the buffer zone, which should be defined by the study of the impact on the cultural property, ie the HIA.”The recommendation of the UNESCO monitoring mission after the visit to Dubrovnik in November 2015, during which the possible expansion of the contact zone was discussed, was to cover a wider area and the original boundaries of coverage were indeed quite wide. “, said Assistant Minister of Culture of the Republic of Croatia Davor Trupković and added “Through a series of studies and analyzes, we have defined this zone, which deals with the visual impact on the city’s views, it has been reduced almost four times compared to the original proposal, which included even Mokošica. “Trupković said that the adoption of the new contact zone does not mean that it will not be possible to build in that area, ie that the reconstruction of existing buildings will not be allowed according to the valid spatial planning documentation. .He also said that complete 3D documentation of the walls will be made to remove all inappropriate restoration interventions from the 50s and 60s of the last century that are not in line with today’s conservative propositions. He also referred to the issue of the number of cruisers and the number of visitors, which was also discussed in Bahrain, saying that the Ministry of Culture informed the Committee that the Tourism Development Strategy and provisions in cruise tourism in the city of Dubrovnik have been completed and adopted by the City Council the 42nd session of the Committee itself.The Deputy Mayor of the City of Dubrovnik, Jelka Tepšić, on the recommendation of the Committee for the most urgent development of the Historic Core Management Plan, stated that the Draft Plan will be completed and presented by the end of 2018.The new buffer zone should help preserve the visual identity and control, while the conservation plan would prescribe clear measures for all investors. That UNESCO’s measures should be taken seriously is also confirmed by the example of Vienna, which, due to unplanned construction, was put on the list of endangered cultural assets by UNESCO, which is a big blow for one of the world’s capitals.You can read the report of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia from the session of the Committee in Bahrain HERE.Attachment: 42nd session of the World Heritage CommitteeSource: HRT / City of Dubrovniklast_img read more
