Eatontown Mayor Proposes Regional Court

first_imgSHREWSBURY — The chairman of the Two River Council of Mayors believes that establishing a regional court complex on a site formerly part of Fort Monmouth could result in significant savings for two river towns.Eatontown Mayor Gerald J. Tarantolo, who chairs the council, proposed the idea of consolodating as many as 10 local municipal courts in a now vacant building that his borough is hoping to obtain from the Department of Defense.“This, hopefully, would save money for the municipalities that are involved,” he said at a meeting of the mayors council in Shrewsbury last Thursday.Eatontown has petitioned the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) to obtain Mallette Hall, an approximately 57,000 square foot facility on what had been the main post. That location has an auditorium with seating for 600 and an amphitheater with seating for 900.Eatontown has asked for the building for $1, and if it gets it, the structure would be large enough to accommodate Eatontown’s needs for a 30,000 square-foot municipal building, and a regional municipal court for up to 10 area towns, according to Tarantolo.The size and location would seem to make the location ideal, given its proximity to Highway 35 and to FMERA’s proposed Eatontown town. “There’s a lot of parking there, there’s easy access,” he said.Operating a municipal court is an expensive proposition when factoring in salaries for judges, prosecutors, public defenders and staff. Compounding that cost, Tarantolo explained, are mandates from the New Jersey Judiciary requiring upgrades in security, like metal detectors, and other requirements, which would cost each town as much as an additional $50,000.The idea of regionalizing municipal courts for cost savings is not a new one, as Sea Bright currently uses Oceanport’s, West Long Branch relies on Ocean Township and Shrewsbury Township uses Red Bank’s court, Tarantolo noted.The proposal to regional on this scale requires that succeed in obtaining the building for a dollar, the mayor said. He has sent a letter of intent to the Fort Monmouth authority requesting that and has lobbied the authority’s real estate committee.As Eatontown sees it, the mayor said, the town has been responsible for educating the children of military personnel since the 1950s and the amount the DOD reimbursed the town never kept pace with the actual per pupil costs. Tarantolo estimated that his town paid $28 million from 1995-2009 for those public school costs. “My claim is that Eatontown has already purchased that building,” he said.Tarantolo raised the idea at a Two River Council of Mayors meeting a few years ago and the response, “wasn’t negative.”FMERA should notify the borough if it will get Mallette Hall in a couple of months, Tarantolo said.Tarantolo, as one of the three Fort Monmouth host communities, serves on FMERA, along with the mayors of Tinton Falls and Oceanport.The Two River Council of Mayors consists of approximately 13 mayors and a representative from Fort Monmouth, who meet monthly for most of the year to discuss matters concerning the area.last_img read more

‘Boot camp’ gets skaters ready for figure skating season

first_imgFigure skaters from throughout the zone got a head start on the season after attending the West Kootenay Development camp held recently in Nelson.More than 50 young skaters descended on the NDCC Arena for “boot camp” on ice — designed to enhance and develop the abilities of young figure skaters in the West Kootenays.“The camp was open to all skaters from the West Kootenays that are interested in attending a grass roots seminar,” explains Sarah Gower a coach with the Nelson Figure Skating Club. “It’s one component of Skate Canada’s overall development strategy to foster young skaters from the region who eventually may go on to compete at provincial or national levels.”Event organizer Tina Borhi was pleased with the turnout.“We got lots of positive feedback from skaters and parents,” she said. “We had a number of high calibre skaters from out of town attend so the quality of skating was quite high and valuable for the younger skaters to see.”Gower, along with fellow coaches Rachel Stewart and Yoshie Measures teamed up with out of town coaches Sabrina Hinson and Mandy Paulsen to put the skaters through their paces.“We taught the skaters both new elements and elements they are familiar with but done in difficult positions, or difficult entries in the case of a jump,” says Gower, noting this approach wins skaters more points under the new system of judging.“Having five coaches on the ice at once meant that skaters were able to receive lots of input and varied approaches.”Marg Larose from Vernon led the off ice dance sessions while Sabrina Hinson ran the off ice flexibility sessions.last_img read more

Overqualified Mammals

first_img(Visited 17 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Here are some mammals with capabilities that exceed the requirements of mere survival.Seal GPS:  Live Science reports that Weddell seals in the Antarctic may have GPS guided by earth’s magnetic field.  They have an amazing ability to find their breathing holes in the ice after staying down on complex hunting maneuvers.  This ability, if confirmed to be magnetically based, would have to be extremely precise for them to find spots under the featureless ice to high precision.“The animal always found its way back. It’s like he knew exactly where the hole was,” Fuiman said. “I couldn’t figure out how they would do that. How did they know where they were by the time they turned around?”Fast sniff:  “Neuroscientists have discovered that mice can detect minute differences in the temporal dynamics of the olfactory system,” Science Daily says.  Researchers publishing in PLoS Biology experimented on mice and found that their ability to discriminate between smells is “capable of very high transient information transmission rates” on the order of 13 milliseconds.Time management:  “Many animals may have a previously under-appreciated ability to make up for lost time with more effort,” another article on Science Daily says alongside a photo of African cats and zebras.  It’s more than just measuring the trade-off between speed and accuracy.  Princeton researchers identified “a crucial third component: an ability to expend effort at a greater rate to compensate for any limit to the time spent making a decision.”  A Darwinian tale was concocted to explain this ability:This flexibility gives an animal an advantage, in terms of Darwinian fitness, over individuals that are stuck with a simple trade-off between speed and accuracy, the researchers report. Because of this fitness advantage, the authors predict that the ability to control investment of time and effort separately should be widespread in nature.What this means is that, after the fact, we can see how the trait is beneficial.  It says nothing about how the trait arose.  What mutation in a mammal brain gave it time management skill?Got a job opening?  Hire these mammals!  They’re overqualified, but will work for food.last_img read more

South African TV goes digital

first_img31 October 2008South Africa enters a new era in broadcasting on Saturday, when the country officially starts the conversion of its television broadcasting signal from analogue to digital technology.There will be a period of “dual-illumination” between 1 November this year and 1 November 2011, during which television will be broadcast via both analogue and digital signals.After 1 November 2011, the analogue signal will be switched off, and viewers will need a set-top box to convert the digital signal for their analogue television sets. However, digital-compliant television sets, which do not require set-top boxes, will also be available by then.“Broadcasting digital migration will bring many benefits, including efficient use of the frequency spectrum – a public and scarce resource,” Department of Communications director-general Lyndall Shope-Mafole said at the launch in Johannesburg this week.“It will bring more channels and therefore more diverse content to the South African public.”Special interactive servicesShope-Mafole added that the migration to digital also had the potential for providing special interactive services such as e-government services, as well as features audio descriptions and sub-titling for people with visual and hearing impairments.Digital broadcasting was made necessary by “developments in telecommunications technologies, which enable a more efficient use of the radio frequency spectrum as well as better quality pictures and sound,” Shope-Mafole said.Set-top box subsidySpeaking at the event, Communication Minister Ivy Matsepe-Casaburri said the department would provide subsidies for poorer households to purchase set-top boxes.She said the change meant that there would soon be specialised television services dedicated to education, health, youth and sport, as well as three regional service channels.South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) acting CEO Gab Mampone said the public broadcaster would provide up to eight new video channels in the same bandwidth as one analogue channel.“The migration to digital process is expected to take a minimum of three years,” Mampone said. “Viewers will still be in a position to receive the current analogue services of SABC 1, 2, 3 and e.tV and M-Net.”Two new SABC channels, SABC Entertainment and SABC International – a news channel – were also showcased during the launch.Global shift to digitalThe migration from analogue to digital signal was first agreed to at the International Telecommunication Union, a United Nations agency for telecommunication.The union took a decision that protection for analogue signals would cease in 2015. Member states were given timelines per region to comply with the decision. Africa forms part of region 1, together with Europe and the Middle East.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

The Best Guide Cache (GC324GD)- San Ignacio, Belize Mayan Ruins“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine Whenever you get the chance to travel somewhere new, do it. If you add geocaching to the mix, trips become even more adventurous and rewarding. I had the opportunity to travel to Central America  and explore two fascinating and beautiful countries: Belize and Guatemala. Along the way, I geocached underwater, through a rainforest and next to a smoking active volcano.  Here are six amazing geocaches that I found and believe all geocachers should add to their bucket list.First stop was in Belize where the people are friendly, the way of life is chiller than an ice cube, and the geocaching is a blast. There are only 110 active geocaches in the entire country of Belize (yes that’s right, 110.) The  volcano Pacaya is an active and complex volcano just south of Guatemala City. It first erupted 23,000 years ago and has erupted at least 23 times since the Spanish invasion in Guatemala. The last eruption was in 2010 and the evidence is there. Antigua is a city of great historical importance in Guatemala (and it’s surrounded by three volcanoes.)You could spend days wandering the cobble-stoned streets, eating delicious food, and  learning spanish at one of the local schools.AntiguaPack your walking shoes because Multi-Cache GC39G2Y will take you all over the city.
