Mayoral Primary Race In Little Silver

first_imgNeff is being challenged by Rick Brandt, a 30-year-old resident with a passion for philanthropy and volunteerism, who says he plans to help the borough “evolve and grow in the 21st century” with improved communication. During a Feb. 25 interview with The Two River Times, Neff said he and the council are monitoring the Fort Monmouth situation, but his focus remains on challenges within the borough itself. “I’m concentrating on the challenges that are of immediate importance to our residents. And it’s not always sexy. It’s bread-and-butter stuff. And it’s our job, mine and the council, to work together and make sure we don’t break the back of the taxpayer while addressing these concerns,” Neff said. This includes his runningmates Donald Galante andcouncil president CorinneThygeson, who are also upfor re-election. “My church has a smartphone app you can download and watch sermons if you happen to miss one. This is inexpensive technology we should be offering our residents because they aren’t always able to make every meeting. We should make it easy for them,” Brandt told The Two River Times. LITTLE SILVER – The race for Little Silver’s Republican mayoral candidate will be decided at the June 4 primary, when two borough men with strong connections to the community face off. “I want to aggressively go after grant funding. There are literally millions of dollars in grants that are sitting out there for communities just like Little Silver. It takes a lot of effort, but it’s something we’ve had a lot of success with at Lunch Break and, if done correctly and assertively, there’s an opportunity to bring significant revenue into the community as well as stabilize taxes,” Brandt said. “It really is a significant expense and the county will not put them in. They always leave it up to the town and that puts a burden on the community. But the council is prepared to dig in and take on some limited debt to get these types of projects done,” Neff added. “And that’s unique to Little Silver. While other towns bond for capital projects, we’ve worked to put ourselves in a position to get it done in the most cost-effective way possible.” Brandt said he also has infrastructure on his mind, but hopes to approach funding for capital projects and beautification initiatives in a different way, and believes his work in the nonprofit sector, including a position on the board of trustees for Lunch Break in Red Bank, could be a big help. Brandt said he is also taking aim at the massive Fort Monmouth redevelopment project. “It’s a unique scenario. The shore area is basically getting a new town put in and it’s happening right next to us. We should be more heavily involved in those discussions because there will be a significant impact to Little Silver, both good and bad. We need to be proactive not reactive,” Brandt said, noting concerns about potential overflow traffic coming through the borough. Little Silver Mayor Robert Neff has announced he’ll make a run for his third consecutive four-year term and has received a full endorsement from the Little Silver Republican Party, as well as backing from all sitting members of the borough council. Neff said sidewalks and curbs can be the most expensive part of any roadwork project and several of the county roads cutting through borough neighborhoods are in need of both, which can be problematic. The mayor pointed to theupcoming hearing on LittleSilver’s affordable housingsettlement, as well as schoolfunding reforms needed atthe state level, as at the topof the list of priorities. Rick Brandt But no topic was morepressing for Neff than localinfrastructure, including theinstallation of sidewalks andcurbing in various parts ofa community known for itsfoot traffic. In order to better understand community needs, Brandt said he has embarked on a journey to knock on the doors of all 2,498 Little Silver households. During those conversations with homeowners Brandt said he is collecting data and, after approximately 850 doors, he is beginning to see trends, though he is not ready to speak about his findings. Despite the effort and Brandt’s service time on the recreation committee and shade tree commission, Neff said it’s experience that sets these two candidates apart. The fort’s Oceanport Avenue entrance is located less than a mile away from the Little Silver train station and Brandt believes the time is now for the borough to get involved in the revitalization efforts of the 1,127-acre parcel and its approximately 1,000 standing structures that stretch across portions of Eatontown, Tinton Falls and Oceanport. “It’s important to have someone in place with a real sense about how government works; with a desire to make people happy, but an understanding that you can’t be successful at that 100 percent of the time,” said Neff. “There are going to be tough decisions you need to make. I’ve helped make those decisions with over a decade of service in our municipal government. That experience is an enormous advantage.”last_img read more

Local Environmental Orgs React to News

first_imgAfter a rousing rendition of “Celebration” by Kool and the Gang, Cindy Zipf, executive director of Clean Ocean Action (COA) based in Long Branch, said, “Congratulations! We beat NESE!” and apologized for getting a little emotional. “This is truly a remarkable, remarkable victory,” she said, thanking all the volunteers who worked to reach this outcome through petitions, letters, rallies and calls to elected officials. She also recognized the COA staff “who all worked very, very hard over the last year and a half…to bring this victory.” “Our air, bay and ocean are safe for now!!” Zipf said in an email to The Two River Times. On the Zoom celebration, Matt Smith from Food & Water Watch also thanked all the volunteers and elected officials who helped achieve this outcome. “This win is about us, right? This win does not happen without thousands of us taking action here in New Jersey, without so many dedicated volunteers… without a strategic coalition that really fought over a historic four-year campaign with a singular goal of getting Gov. Murphy to reject these permits,” he said. “This is a great victory and a great modelof working together at both the local leveland with elected officials,” he said. According to Smith, this was the first time New Jersey stopped a project already approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the agency that regulates the interstate transmission of natural gas. More than 100 people logged on to a Zoom meeting held by local environmental organizations Monday, May 18 to celebrate the denial of permits by Gov. Phil Murphy for the Transco Northeast Supply Enhancement (NESE) project. By Elizabeth Wulfhorst Peter Blair, the policy attorney for COA,thanked everyone for making sure NESE“remained a proposal and never a reality.” PATRICK OLIVERO Rallies like this one in 2019 organized by Clean Ocean Action and other grassroots coalitions helped lead to the denial of permits by both New Jersey and New York officials for a proposed natural gas pipeline under Raritan Bay. “When we come together and stay together with that singular focus to hold our elected official accountable,” goals can be accomplished, Smith said. And Jeff Tittel, the director of the New Jersey Sierra Club, who called Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York and Murphy the “Batman and Robin of the environment,” said getting people involved, putting pressure on elected officials and educating the public were the keys to success.

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, April 16, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Warmer air surges into the region today thanks to strong south flow coming up the backside of high pressure. This south flow will also bring moist air north ahead of our next weather system that impacts the rest of the week. Temps today should be 10-15 degrees warmer than yesterday in many parts of Ohio. Sunshine dominates, although we may see some offshoot clouds from Michigan and southern Ontario in far northern parts of the state from time to time. It should not be a big deal. Tomorrow we will see clouds move back into the region, and those clouds can trigger some scattered showers or thunderstorms. The action tomorrow is somewhat hit and miss and may end up being more of a factor in far NW Ohio, Indiana, influenced by a disturbance that meanders through the Great Lakes today. Still, though, we don’t want to get too cute with the forecast tomorrow. At this time, we think moisture tomorrow will be limited to 40% coverage. However, it is just the beginning of a much wetter period. On Thursday we have rain and thunderstorms spreading across the state with the potential for some strong to severe weather Thursday night and Friday morning. The heaviest rains come in that Thursday night into early Friday morning period, particularly from near midnight through sunrise, and we may see a couple of waves of heavy rain and thunderstorm action in central and southern Ohio.  Showers linger through the balance of Friday and Saturday, but with much lighter intensity and lower coverage. On Friday, lingering showers can bring a few hundredths to .5” to 70% of the state, while Saturdays action triggers a few hundredths to .25” over 60% of the state. Overall, rain totals from tomorrow through Saturday early afternoon will be from half to 1.5 inches, and we have concern about rains over 2” in a few parts of the state, especially west central and NW Ohio. The map at right shows storm total precipitation potential through Saturday. We turn out partly sunny on Sunday and see a mix of clouds and sun on Monday, with temps near normal. The rest of our forecast for the 10 day window is unchanged, with rains returning next Tuesday, spreading across the state from NW to SE. We end up with 75% coverage over the state for Tuesday with rains of .25”-1”; thunderstorms are likely. Then Wednesday we see rains concentrate more on the southern half of the state, with a few hundredths to .4”, mostly from I-70 south. Again, no significant drying there. We have a couple of tweaks to the extended period. Dry weather still is in to start for next Thursday and Friday, but rains are looking to redevelop sooner, for the following weekend, and then on and off rains are likely through the turn of the month. Daily or event totals are not large, a quarter to half an inch, but with the new look at frequency in these rains, we still look to see limited drying into early May. The one thing that may be helpful in the extended period is that coverage of the rains may be closer to 60%…allowing for parts of the state to miss out. Those will be the areas to watch as we move forward, because we anticipate the need to adjust and change out look at the turn of the month in coming forecasts.last_img read more

Brazil president hopes measures will end crippling strike

first_imgRIO DE JANEIRO – Brazilian President Michel Temer announced a handful of measures late Sunday aimed at getting truckers to end a crippling strike that has had a wide impact in Latin America’s largest nation.Temer, a lame duck president who is deeply unpopular, said the price of diesel fuel would drop by 0.46 reals (US$ 0.13) per litre for 60 days, about a 10 per cent drop compared to the price before the strike began. Temer said the government would pay the difference between the price set by state oil company Petrobras and the reduced cost.Temer also said he was crafting measures to reduce some tolls and establish minimum freight rates, key demands by truckers whose shutdown has brought much of the country to a halt. Congress this week was also expected to debate various measures aimed at ending the shutdown.Whether the changes will be enough to get truckers back to work remains to be seen. An announced “agreement” between the government and transportation unions last week was ignored by thousands of truckers, who continued striking.While Temer spoke late Sunday, in Rio and Sao Paulo the banging of pots could be heard, a form of mass booing of unpopular politicians in Brazil.Over the last week, thousands of schools have cancelled classes, many flights have been grounded and gas stations have emptied, bringing much commerce to a halt.Through it all, Temer’s administration has struggled to confront the stoppage, exposing a yawning gap between politicians in the capital of Brasilia and thousands of truckers who are key to keeping Brazil running, in part because the commodity-rich nation has no significant rail or canal system to move goods.On Friday, Temer said he would have the army and police use force if necessary to remove thousands of truckers who parked along highways and roads nationwide. That prompted more hackles than fear from truckers. Soldiers made no moves against truckers, though they did serve as convoys for some fuel shipments.On Sunday, Gen. Eduardo Villas Boas, head of the Army, even tweeted that negotiation was the best way to avoid conflict.The price of diesel has risen sharply in recent months as world oil prices have gone up and the real has devalued against the U.S. dollar.The shutdown comes at a time when Brazil is struggling to recover from a deep recession and many people are furious at much of the political class because of a massive corruption scandal that involved inflated construction contracts and billions of dollars in kickbacks.last_img read more

Facets of immigration

first_imgImmigration, in the words of historian Roger Daniels, is a fundamental human activity. Can it be restricted? Most immigrants use air routes to enter foreign countries, and these routes are almost entirely controlled by authorities in both the sending and receiving countries. The land and sea routes are somewhat less easy to monitor but, given modern surveillance technology, not entirely outside the realm of enforcement.Yet only a few island nations such as Australia and Singapore claim to micromanage immigration flows with success. Elsewhere, immigration enforcement is littered with failures, including in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, France, and Italy—countries that should by now be veterans in the enforcement business. With modern surveillance technology, these countries could, if they chose to allocate the required resources, monitor each and every entry and exit. It would be a messy and costly exercise. Also Read – Torpedoing BengalTake Donald Trump’s January 2017 executive order to restrict refugees and travelers from seven Muslim countries. Together these countries constitute a tiny slice of the overall number of international travelers to the United States. Even so, the executive order caused chaos at international airports, protests in major American cities, complaints from friendly governments around the world, and lawsuits from American corporations, universities, and local and state governments. Imagine the anarchy and economic effects a major restriction on travel and immigration would create! Also Read – Educational model of coexistenceWelcome to the twenty-first-century global economy. Crossborder mobility is integral to its functioning. The economic, administrative, and humanitarian toll of any major immigration restriction would be enormous, and nations contemplating these notions have to ask whether they are willing to pay the price. The simple fact is that, as I document below, restricting immigration in the twentyfirst century is not possible without substantially depressing overall cross-border mobility. Effective restrictions on immigration require controls on other types of international travels for tourism, schooling, business, and employment. Yet in the current paranoia when Marine Le Pen of France, Viktor Orban of Hungary, Matteo Salvini of Italy, Geert Wilders of Netherlands, Nigel Farage of the United Kingdom, Donald Trump of the United States, and other right-wing leaders demand restricting immigration and expelling immigrants, they do so without reference to restrictions on international travel. Advocates of anti-immigration policies generally want to restrict immigration but not international travel for business and tourism, in particular of their own citizens. Such travel not only greases the wheels of the global economy but also directly contributes substantially to global economic output. Yet failure to acknowledge the link between immigration and other kinds of cross-border mobility reflects incomplete understanding of immigration in the twentyfirst century. The New Immigration Critics argue that if immigration restrictions did not have a disastrous effect on the world economy a century ago when the United States clamped down on immigration with a series of laws culminating in the Immigration Act of 1924, why would it be any different now? The answer lies in the difference between immigration today and one hundred years ago; the differences in global interdependence and globalization today and one hundred years ago. Let’s start with the differences in immigration over the past century. Immigration in the 2010s is a tiny fraction of cross-border mobility. The World Tourism Organization periodically publishes estimates of international tourists. By these estimates, in 2016 there were 1.2 billion international tourist arrivals. This statistic pertains to the number of individual trips, not travelers. A tiny minority travels across national borders ten or more times a year, but the vast majority engages in international travel for tourism just once or twice a year. I asked a number of immigration historians, demographers, economists, and political scientists for a reasonable estimate of the average number of trips per international traveler. The response: it’s difficult to guess. But they unanimously agreed that it would be fewer than five. Assuming that on average each international tourist makes three trips a year, that would be 400 million international tourists; assuming that they make five trips a year, the number goes down to 240 million. To this must be added other nonimmigrants, such as students, scholars, and individuals traveling for work, if we are to arrive at an estimate of the overall size of annual cross-border movement. Compare that to the number of people who emigrate globally: about five million a year, according to data from the International Organization for Migration. The number of individuals engaged in international travel is at least fifty times the annual immigration, and possibly even larger. By contrast, in the early decades of the twentieth century crossborder mobility for tourism and business was modest. The cost, time, risk, and sheer uncertainty of long-distance travel were major impediments to international mobility. On average in 1900 it took four to six months via sea to travel from Bombay to London, a journey that can now be completed in just eight hours by air. There were no designated ships leaving Bombay for London every day or even every week. In January 2017 every day there were at least seven nonstop flights between the two cities, and eighty flights with one or more stops in other cities. Then, thousands of rich Chinese, Korean, and Japanese tourists just did not fly to Paris or London or New York for a weeklong vacation or for an extended weekend as they do in the twenty-first century. Then, cross-border travel for tourism and business was not as big a driver of economic growth as it is in the twenty-first century. In 2016 international tourism was a $1.5 trillion industry globally; China had 120 million inbound and 130 million outbound tourists. The United States received 74 million international tourists, and about the same number of U.S. citizens traveled abroad, of which about half traveled outside North America. Immigration in the 2010s is far more global than it was in the early 1900s, in terms of both origins and destinations. In the early 1900s most immigrants were from Europe, and most headed to the Americas. In the 2010s immigrants come from all across the globe. In 2016 the top regions of origin were Asia (49 percent of global immigration), Latin America (18 percent), Eastern Europe and Central Asia (16 percent), and the Middle East and North Africa (14 percent). Then, all the leading countries of origin were in northern and southern Europe. In the early decades of the twenty-first century all the top ten sending countries are outside Europe. The geographic landscape of immigration has reversed in many places: immigrant origin nations of the early twentieth century (Italy, France, Ireland, Spain) have become destinations, and countries that were once destinations (Brazil, Argentina, Chile) are now origins. Demographic projections suggest that by 2050, Africa will emerge as one of the biggest sources of emigration to Asia, Europe, and North America.
