first_imgWNY News Now Stock Graphic.JAMESTOWN – A local candidate for the New York State Assembly is voicing her concern about the proposed reopening strategy announced by various officials calling for New York State to move away from the “economic zones” decision-making process for reopening.Christina Cardinale (D) is running against Republican Incumbent NY-50 Assemblyman Andy Goodell this fall. Cardinale released the following statement on her official Facebook page following Tuesday’s press conference with Goodell, Congressman Tom Reed, State Senator George Borrello and other officials:“The “separate Chautauqua County” agenda is still in full effect, as evidenced by this afternoon’s press conference at Crown Street Roasting Company in downtown Jamestown. Our county has a population of about 126,900. Currently, our county has reported 1451 (negative) and 44 (positive) COVID-19 test results. That’s 1.17% of the population. We need a sample size bigger than 1.17% to make educated decisions.”“Our representatives continue to proudly announce our “low infection rate”. They need to remember these low numbers correlate with the low amount of testing. I’m not against reopening. I’m against reopening without being conscientious. I’m against a pandemic strategy that involves a “let the chips fall where they may” mentality.” “Our elected officials are so quick to demand special treatment for Chautauqua County. How can they demand significant treatment for a county without significant metrics?” Share:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window),Yes, let’s stay locked down until the Fuhrer tells us it is okay. He is so smart. Let’s make him our president cause he has done such a wonderful job. Just follow the democrats. Now excuse me while I puke.,Ms.Cardinale hasn’t a leg to stand on. As per NYS Dept.of Health latest statics 5/12: 85% of COVID-19 deaths in NYS occur in people over 60 yo..89.6% have COMORBIDITY… (COPD, Coronary heart disease, Stroke, Dementia, etc.)..According to NYSDOH: there have been 4 ( four) deaths in total attributed to COVID-19 in Cattaraugus and Chautauqua.

first_imgAccording to the mayor, they intend to invite both the government and private sectors to hold their regional conventions at the center after it finishes construction.“Hopefully, our problem (with) the coronavirus (disease) 2019 would already be addressed so that the regional conventions could be held here,” Untaran said. “The Convention Center has a sitting capacity of 500 to 600 delegates.” San Jose Mayor Elmer Untaran, for his part, said that the convention center would be a big boost to the capital town’s tourism, trade and commerce. The convention center is one of the special projects under the national government’s “Build, Build, Build” program.Provincial engineer Inocencio Dajao said on Tuesday that the project is being constructed on a two-hectare lot. He added that they aim to finish the one-floor structure, which will house a hotel and swimming pool, within a year. San Jose Mayor Elmer Untaran says the P300-million Antique Convention Center located in Barangay Badiang of the town would be a big boost to the capital town’s tourism, trade and commerce. The project has started construction on June 11. PNA FILE PHOTO He added that the municipal government and the local police are working hard to maintain peace and safety so that delegates who would come for conventions in the future would not have to worry.(With a report from PNA/PN) “The local government unit (LGU) is really looking forward to the completion of the convention center,” said Untaran. “The Antique Convention Center is implemented by the Department of Public Works and Highways Regional Office 6 through a contractor,” Dajao said.

first_imgAfter splitting last week’s pair of matches, the No. 13 USC women’s tennis team heads into the thick of its Pac-10 schedule.First up for the Women of Troy (11-3, 1-0) is a match with No. 10 California (11-4, 2-0) today as they look to avenge last year’s two defeats, one of which knocked USC out of the NCAA tournament.Hot streak · Though top-ranked teams in California, Stanford await, senior Maria Sanchez has notched 22 consecutive wins in singles play. – Daily Trojan file photo The Golden Bears boast three ranked singles players, No. 4 Jana Juricova, No. 48 Tayler Davis and No. 57 Annie Goransson, all of whom will pose a challenge to USC coach Richard Gallien’s group.Senior Maria Sanchez in particular will have her hands full with Juricova, who was the 2009 ITA National Indoor Championship singles champion. Held out of last year’s NCAA tournament because of a wrist injury, the Slovakian hasn’t missed a beat this season and represents the kind of top competition Sanchez will have to face in her quest to win a national title.Despite last week’s troubles, Sanchez ran through the competition, breezing through ASU’s No. 17 Kelcy McKenna, to record her 22nd consecutive singles win.Sophomore Danielle Lao has seen her play slip as of late because of some elbow discomfort, even sitting out the Syracuse match. Lao looks to rebound from her previous matches when she faces Cal’s Davis, as well as Stanford’s Nicole Gibbs or Mallory Burdette, who currently sit at No. 11 and No. 29, respectively.No. 2 Stanford (14-0, 2-0) boasts a total of five singles players ranked among the nation’s best, more than either USC or Cal.Jousting with No. 1 Sanchez all year, among the nation’s top singles player, No. 2 Hilary Barte, also a senior, has a chance to make her case for the top spot Saturday.Freshman Kaitlyn Christian, who had her first win in second singles last week, will have to continue her strong play over the weekend if the Women of Troy have any hope to squeeze out victories against their two top-10 opponents.Facing arguably her toughest competition this season (along with UCLA’s Andrea Remynse), Christian will have to display the type of poise that has garnered her continual praise from Gallien in order to be successful against Cal and Stanford.At the back end of singles, junior Alison Ramos and senior Cristala Andrews might not know exactly who they will face, as Stanford has shuffled around their lineup all season long, but they can rest assured it will be top competition.“It’s a tough one this weekend,” Gallien said. “We match up really well with Stanford and it’s good to play them at home.”last_img read more

Council bickers over tribute

January 3, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgThe council has unanimously decided to rename the Carson Community Center after Millender-McDonald, who got her start in politics as a Carson councilwoman. But the council cannot seem to agree on whether to have a separate memorial service or to have the service coincide with the unveiling of the community center’s new name. It is not clear why a committee would be necessary to organize the memorial service in the first place. Councilman Mike Gipson suggested that the task could be completed quickly and efficiently by city staff members. If a committee is needed, it is not clear why its members would have to be appointed by Dear, who has run into opposition repeatedly over his committee appointments in the last six months. Most notably, Dear got into hot water when he tried to appoint a committee to organize the city’s annual Unity Day celebration. The festival had been handled in the past by perennial volunteers, many of whom were angered to discover that Dear had left them off the list. For several weeks, Dear battled the perception that he was trying to wrest control of the event away from his political opponents. Ultimately, he dropped the effort and left the job to the volunteers. For now, the effort to recognize the congresswoman is on hold. The council refused to ratify Dear’s appointments – some of whom had been previously rejected for commission spots – and he declined to amend them to include his council opponents. “I think it’s known as `limbo,”‘ Dear said. “It’s kind of silly. I can’t tell who they like and who they don’t like. I’m not going to waste my time trying to keep up with who they get along with and who they don’t get along with.” The issue will come up again at the next council meeting. Davis-Holmes said the bickering would not get in the way of the ultimate goal. “We’re going to move forward with it,” she said. “We’re not going to let politics stop us from having a memorial celebration.” [email protected] local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By Gene Maddaus STAFF WRITER The city of Carson has yet to hold a memorial service for Rep. Juanita Millender-McDonald, who died five months ago, and efforts to put on a ceremony have become bogged down in petty political squabbling. The latest delay came this week, when Mayor Jim Dear and the rest of the City Council were unable to agree on a slate of committee members to organize the memorial celebration. “I guess they were kind of tired and not in a good mood,” Dear said afterward. “For them to delay it does not bode well for the image of the city of Carson.” The council majority was offended because Dear tried to appoint himself and his ally, Councilman Harold Williams, to the committee while excluding his political opponents. “I am just shocked that my name was not called,” Councilwoman Lula Davis-Holmes said. “The congresswoman represented all ethnic groups and all backgrounds. The committee he put together does not include representation from the entire city.” In honoring Millender-McDonald, Carson is lagging badly behind Congress, which – though no less divided than the Carson City Council – was able to organize a memorial service within three weeks of her death. last_img
