Former Mayor Bogaard Urges Local Residents to Give Blood

first_imgtop box 5 Former Mayor Bogaard Urges Local Residents to Give Blood Lack of blood drives causing severe shortage across the country By ANDY VITALICIO Published on Tuesday, April 7, 2020 | 4:19 pm Subscribe Inset: Pasadena’s Former Mayor Bill BogaardHuntington Memorial Hospital is seeking blood donations due to a severe blood shortage throughout the United States, attributed to an unprecedented number of recent blood drive cancellations.Former Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard, a member of the Board of Directors at Huntington Hospital, appealed for blood donations, saying there is a “perfect storm of need for blood at this time,” with many demands for blood for coronavirus patients and many cancellations of donor appointments due to the crisis.The hospital’s management said even during this COVID-19 pandemic, blood donation is still safe, and there’s no evidence that the coronavirus is transmissible by blood transfusion. It added there have been no reported cases of transfusion transmission for any respiratory virus, including COVID-19.“As the only trauma center in the San Gabriel Valley, we rely on your generosity to help us keep our blood supplies up and meet the health needs of our community,” a statement from the hospital said. “Your support is extremely valuable at this time, when we have had to cancel mobile blood drives and are reliant on donations at our off-campus location more than ever.”To facilitate blood donations, Huntington Hospital is operating its community Blood Donor Center at 800 South Fairmount Ave. in Pasadena. Blood donation hours at the Center are Monday to Thursday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.At each blood drive and at the Blood Donor Center, Huntington employees have been instructed to follow thorough safety protocols to ensure blood recipient safety, as well as staff and donor safety.Out of an abundance of caution, people who have traveled China, including Hong Kong and Macau, South Korea, Japan, Italy, or Iran in the last 28 days, are advised to not donate blood at this time. The hospital said those in this category will be eligible to donate 28 days after their departure from any of those countries.As a special incentive for blood donors, Huntington Hospital will be giving out one movie ticket or a $10 gift certificate until April 30 or while supplies last. Repeat blood donors who bring a new donor will receive an additional movie ticket, once the donations are successful.“A pint of blood could potentially save three lives, and the rewards to you are considerable: doing good, getting your blood pressure and other vitals checked, burning calories and getting a coupon or shirt and tasty snacks,” David Kirchheimer, another Huntington Hospital Board member, said in a statement. “I’m 63 years old and just donated for the 120th time. Please join me in this vital act.”To schedule a blood donation, call (626) 397-5422 or visit www.huntingtonhospital.org/support-us/donate-blood.

GREEN THUMB: ‘When God gives you a gift, He expects you to share it’

first_img By The Penny Hoarder Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Hobdy’s front lawn, back lawn and side lawns are testimony to that. Every place a plant can put down roots, there is a blaze of color. Some of the flowers, Hobdy knows by name. Others are nameless flowers “rescued” from neighbors and friends.“I’ve always loved flowers, back as far back as I can remember,” Hobdy said. “When I as a little girl, I would be walking along the road and see a pretty flower. I’d pull it up and take it home and stick it in the ground and it would grow.”Even in her childhood, Hobdy realized that God had blessed her with a green thumb.

If not, God will take that gift away and give it to someone who will use it.   Not only is Mary Hobdy using the gift God has given her, she is more than willing to share it.Those who might wonder about Hobdy’s gift need only to ride by her home on Windmill Drive in Brundidge to see that God has richly blessed her with a green thumb, or perhaps two green thumbs. Print Articlecenter_img Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration As an adult, Hobdy lived in a housing project for 16 years and grew flowers until she was told by the manager that she couldn’t have all those flowers in the project.“But, when I was able to get a house of my own, I could have all the flowers I wanted,” she said.But her mother would ask,  “Where’s your garden?”“Mama would remind me that I couldn’t eat flowers,” Hobdy said, laughing. “But, flowers feed my soul.” Sponsored Content Mary Hobdy’s home on Windmill Drive in Brundidge attracts a lot of attention because, a first glance, it could easily be mistaken for a garden center. All around her house, Hobdy has an abundance of vibrant flowers. She admits that she has a green thumb, which is a gift from God.” GREEN THUMB: ‘When God gives you a gift, He expects you to share it’ Latest Stories Hobdy doesn’t miss any opportunity to add a new flower to her garden. And, the garden centers at Walmart and Lowe’s call Hobdy’s name.“I can’t go by; I have to stop,” Hobdy said. “I look for plants that probably nobody else will buy. I take them home and stick them in the ground and they’ll grow like weeds. Everything that I put in the ground grows.”Not only did God bless Mary Hobdy with a green thumb, He instilled in her the know-how to care for His creations.“I can break off the stem of a plant and stick it in the ground and it will root,” she said. “But flowers are alive and, just like our bodies, they need water. They cannot make it without water.”Sometimes, Hobdy said the heavens provide the water plants need to grow. Sometimes not. “When plants don’t get the rain they need, we have to water them. We all know that,” she said. “But flowers cannot flourish with tap water.”From there, Hobdy does not hesitate to share her secrets that complement her green thumb(s).“When God gives you a gift, He expects you to share it,” she said.Sharing the “secrets” that keep people asking, “Mary, Mary, how does your garden grow?” is what God expects Hobdy to do with the gift He has given her.And she willingly and lovingly does.Her recipe for abundant and vibrant blossoms is simple. One tablespoon of Epsom salts in one gallon of water.“Don’t worry about the chlorine in the tap water. The Epsom salts will get rid of it. The salts will keep the bugs away, too.” she said. “But, if you’re just going to put tap water on your plants, you want to get the chlorine because it’s not good for plants. So, you should fill a gallon jug with hot water and leave the cap off overnight so the chorine will get out of the water.”Hobdy said rainwater is ideal for plants but often “we get missed.”I keep about 100 gallon jugs of Epsom salts water all the time,” she said. “If we don’t get rain, I’ve got the water my plants need.”Hobdy also said when she cracks eggs, she puts the eggshells in a bucket of water for a few days and the water will provide nutrients for any kind of flower.Other Mary Louise Hobdy tips are to the always water in the morning and give plants that need sun the morning sun.“The afternoon sun is too much because it’s hotter and it stays around longer,” she said.Hobdy’s recipe for a beautiful flower garden is rather simple and she is proof positive that it works, even for those without a green thumb.

Government back-tracking over commitment to three-year tenancies

first_imgHome » News » Government back-tracking over commitment to three-year tenancies previous nextRegulation & LawGovernment back-tracking over commitment to three-year tenanciesMayor of London Sadiq Khan makes the claim during his regular Question Time session at City Hall.Nigel Lewis23rd November 201802,234 Views The government is back tracking over its commitment in July to introduce three-year tenancies, the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has revealed following meetings with ministers two weeks ago.The disclosure came following a question from Sian Berry, the co-leader of the Green party in England and Wales during his regular ‘Question Time’ at the London Assembly building.After being asked by her what he was doing to help London’s two million private sector tenants, he said that: “Despite announcing to great fanfare a consultation on three-year tenancies for renters, ministers already appear to be wavering on their commitment to any rule change in this area.“I will keep pushing ministers on longer tenancies because I believe making them open ended and scrapping no-fault evictions is essential to strengthening the rights of renters.”Landlord licencingDuring the session, Khan also revealed that the housing secretary James Brokenshire has refused to devolve landlord licensing powers to London’s City Hall, and that he still plans to introduce rent controls in London once his ‘London Model’ plan for the capital’s housing market has been completed.Launched last year, the Mayor said he would bring together tenants, landlords and boroughs to “support a more stable, family-friendly sector, where the legitimate rights of landlords are protected too”.Khan also savaged the government during the meeting, claiming that: “The truth is the government have dragged their feet when it comes to renting; they’ve been slow to agree to any changes at all, half-hearted in taking them forward and implacably opposed to the kind of radical change renters need,” he said.   Mayor of London Sadiq Khan sian berry three year tenancies November 23, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Ruling Goes Against Indiana’s ‘Strong Public Policy’ Of Enforcing Contracts

first_imgJennifer Nelson for www.theindiianalawyer.comA federal judge ruled Tuesday in a lawsuit challenging the town of Fortville’s procedure for disputing unpaid water bills that class members’ constitutional rights to procedural due process trump the state’s public policy of enforcing contracts.Bobbi Kilburn-Winnie and Michelle Allen-Gregory had their water service disconnected after not paying their bills on time. They allege that the procedure that allows customers who want to dispute the amount billed or the impending disconnection to have a hearing before the Fortville Town Council is so complicated and burdensome that it violates the right to procedural due process under the 14th Amendment.Allen-Gregory has sued over this issue before. In 2014, her complaint stated the town would terminate water service without a hearing. This led to the town revising its notice and disconnection procedure, but the plaintiffs claimed the new procedure was “overly burdensome” because it required four written submissions, including a notice of appeal of the service or disconnection fee.The lawsuit was settled in 2015, with the settlement agreement becoming effective Oct. 12, 2015. The agreement contained a released claims clause, at issue in the instant case. The town defendants argue this released claims clause prevents the instant lawsuit, as Allen-Gregory was a named plaintiff in the original case and Kilburn-Winnie was a member of the settling class because she had her water disconnected in February and June 2014 under the defendants’ original procedure. She also received settlement proceeds.After determining state law applies, Chief Judge Richard Young inthe U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana found the plain language of the release bars the plaintiffs’ claim, but that does not necessarily mean it is enforceable against Allen-Gregory, Killburn-Winnie or potential class members.The release is enforceable as it relates to Allen-Gregory because she was the original named plaintiff, participated in the settlement conference and signed the settlement agreement.Killburn-Winnie received a notice of the class action and proposed settlement, but there’s no evidence she actually read the class action or the settlement agreement and release clause.“The court recognizes that this ruling strikes against Indiana’s strong public policy of enforcing releases and enforcing contracts in general. This decision also overrules the clear intent of the parties to the Settlement Agreement and the very purpose of releases. Parties include a release in settlement agreements in order to “foreclose further claims,” Young wrote citing Zolman v. Geneva Leasing Assocs., 780 N.E.2d 387, 392 (Ind. Ct. App. 2002).“Yet, at least at this stage in the proceeding, the court must allow the releasers to return with a claim Defendants reasonably believed was waived. The court is troubled by this result and its possible implications.“Despite this …the court cannot enforce a waiver of a constitutional right until it is satisfied that the individual voluntarily relinquished a known right. At least in this context, the class members’ constitutional right to procedural due process trumps Indiana’s public policy of enforcing contracts, the parties’ contractual intent, and the plain language of the Release.”Young ordered Allen-Gregory removed from the case. He also granted the defendants leave to renew their motion for summary judgment if evidence reveals that Killburn-Winnie knowingly and voluntarily waived her due process rights.The case is Bobbie Kilburn-Winnie and Michelle Allen-Gregory, on behalf of themselves and all similarly situated persons v.

Holder’s mission

first_imgAlvin Poussaint, professor of psychiatry, associate dean for student affairs at Harvard Medical School, and a long-time crusader on children’s issues, warned about the anger and rage that underlies bullying. “I think we have to focus on that anger,” he said.Since many programs operate at the state level, asked Harvard Law School Professor Ronald Sullivan, how can federal authorities create the political will to institute change?Through grant making, Holder replied. “You’d be surprised at the number of cities and neighborhoods that want to try these things.”Asked by Barbara Ferrer, executive director of the Boston Public Health Commission, about accomplishments in getting to the root cause of violence, Holder acknowledged, “The Justice Department can’t do it alone.”Crime levels decrease with education achieved, he noted, adding, “Some of our best crime fighters are teachers.” When U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder uses the word “epidemic” to describe the rise of violence witnessed by children, he is not indulging in hyperbole.Use of the word is part of his mission to recast the problem of violence seen by or done to kids as a public health issue, one that demands responses from multiple institutions — not just law enforcement — to address both symptoms and prevention.On May 6 Holder brought this message to The Forum at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) in remarks and a discussion broadcast live via the web and posted as an on-demand webcast.Children’s exposure to violence, which can cause physical, emotional, and psychological harm, is “one of the greatest public safety and public health epidemics of our time,” Holder told the audience.Children today are much more likely than adults to be exposed to violence and crime, from bullying at school, seeing parents strike each other, or experiencing a knife or gunfight, he said.Whether a child is a victim or a witness, he added, “Violence affects the brain as much as it affects the body and the spirit.”Research has demonstrated the cumulative effect of violence, Holder continued, citing a Justice Department study that found “a majority of our children — more than 60 percent of them — have been exposed to some type of crime, abuse, or violence.”According to Holder, these children are more likely to suffer depression or to fail in school; have a greater risk of drug and alcohol abuse as adults; are more likely to develop chronic disease; have difficulty establishing emotional closeness; and are more likely to commit acts of violence.Violence is not limited by region; it can happen at home, school, in the streets, and on the Internet, Holder said: “We must recognize that children’s exposure to violence is a public health issue and it demands a public health response.”He said the problem should be addressed “holistically, not just in fragments” by building on existing partnerships among institutions, and he called for training more professionals to work with children exposed to violence, he said.Alvin Poussaint, professor of psychiatry, associate dean for student affairs at Harvard Medical School, and a long-time crusader on children’s issues, warned about the anger and rage that underlies bullying. “I think we have to focus on that anger,” he said.During the Q&A session, Jay Winsten, the Frank Stanton Center Director for the Center for Health Communication at HSPH, asked Holder about his strategy for turning plans into action.One response is to cast the problem as one of U.S. security and protection, Holder said. “What we’re doing here today is just as important as what we did on Sunday,” he said, referring to the killing of Osama bin Laden. “We have to protect the American people. It’s not a coincidence that we see the greatest amount of violence in areas with the greatest amount of social dysfunction.”Winsten also speculated about changing social norms, noting that efforts to combat drunk driving led to the notion of a “designated driver.” What might be the counterpart in combating behavior around bullying?Holder responded with a personal story about how his own daughter, now 17, was bullied at school in the fifthand sixth grades but never told him about it. “It brought tears to my eyes to hear her describe what she experienced,” he said.last_img read more
