Bipartisan Florida Opposition to Offshore Drilling Plans

first_imgBipartisan Florida Opposition to Offshore Drilling Plans FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享McClatchy:Florida’s congressional delegation, citing the state’s vibrant tourism industry, delivered a unanimous, bipartisan and stern message of opposition to offshore energy exploration during a hearing on Capitol Hill on Thursday.Congressional Republicans and Democrats took turns blasting the idea of putting fossil-fuel development near the state’s 825 miles of pristine beaches in order to boost energy production and oil company profits.While Ken Lawson, president and chief executive of Visit Florida, the state’s official tourism marketing arm, told lawmakers that the 2010 Deepwater Horizon explosion “will always serve as a stark reminder of what happens when we do not make our beaches, our waters and our environment our top priority.”BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded roughly 50 miles off the Louisiana coast in the Gulf of Mexico in April 2010, triggering an 87-day spill that released an estimated four million barrels of oil and gas. Along with 11 who died, 17 others suffered serious injuries and 115 people were evacuated from the rig, which sank.The hearing comes as the Trump administration nears a decision on whether to allow seismic testing for fossil fuel deposits along the Atlantic Coast. In January, the Trump administration dropped Florida from its plan to allow new offshore oil and gas drilling in most U.S. coastal waters. The decision, in response to appeals from Florida Gov. Rick Scott, prompted calls for similar carve-outs from lawmakers in other coastal states like New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and North Carolina. But similar exemptions have not been provided.More: Florida Congressional Delegation Gives Thumbs-Down To Offshore Drillinglast_img read more

Shannan Gilbert’s Family Seeks Donations for Funeral, 2nd Autopsy

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Famous coroner Dr. Michael Baden will perform a second autopsy on a New Jersey woman whose remains were found in Oak Beach three years ago Saturday in the case that led police to the Long Island Serial Killer’s dumping ground.The family of Shannan Gilbert, who police were searching for when they discovered 10 sets of human remains along Ocean Parkway, is seeking donations to pay for her funeral, so the second autopsy can be conducted at the funeral home. Attorneys for the family made that announcement on the same week that they released the results of Gilbert’s first autopsy and toxicology tests—which found no trace of drugs in her system.“I’m convinced beyond any doubt that she was murdered,” said the lead attorney, John Ray of Miller Place-based Ray, Mitev & Associates, echoing the family’s suspicion. “And the autopsy report is not inconsistent with my belief.”The Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s office had only said that the cause of death is “undetermined” for Gilbert, an online escort who was reported missing May 1, 2010 after she fled the Oak Beach home of her last client, Joseph Brewer, who police have said is not a suspect in the deaths. Police have also said suspect Gilbert—whose body was found in a marsh less than a mile from Brewer’s home—was not a victim of foul play. But Gilbert’s family believes that Shannan was killed by the same person behind the other murders, whose victims include other online escorts.Baden, who was the host of the HBO “Autopsy” series for 13 years, agrees with former Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer’s theory that one killer dumped all 10 sets of remains. Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota has said he believes more than one killer hid bodies on the same remote stretch of beach. Baden was not immediately available for comment.“There are lots of places to dump bodies, and I’ve investigated a number of serial murders, and I’ve never seen two different serial murders dump bodies [in the same place] at the same time,” Baden told Fox News, where he is a contributor. Ray said Baden offered to perform the second autopsy for free, but Baden cannot perform the autopsy at the Suffolk medical examiner’s office. That’s why the family needs to raise the money to pay for Shannan’s funeral costs before that can happen. They are asking for donations via GoFundMe.Ray is representing Gilbert’s mother, Mari, in a lawsuit against Dr. Peter Hackett, who allegedly told her that he took Shannan in and drugged her before she went missing. Hackett later denied those claims in media interviews. Hacket, who has since moved to Florida, is also not a suspect in the deaths, police have said.Ray said that contrary to what police have said, the first autopsy suggests that Gilbert was murdered. Aside from a lack of drugs evidence in hair and tissue tests, the report found that her mostly skeletal remains were missing several small bones from her fingers, toes and throat—but no signs of trauma.“There are very small areas of possible post-mortem animal activity,” Dr. Hajar Sims-Childs said in the report, dated Dec. 14, 2011.No arrests or suspects have been named in the larger investigation. Suffolk County police issued their standard statement this week when asked about the case: “We are not commenting further at this time on the Gilgo investigation until/unless we have some additional information pertaining to the investigation that serves the investigation or the public by its release.”last_img read more

Florida Lawyer Charged With Extorting N.F.L. Player in Robbery Case

first_imgMr. Baker, 23, whom the Giants selected as the 30th overall pick of the 2019 N.F.L. draft and started in 15 of 16 games in his rookie season last year, was charged on Aug. 5 with four counts of armed robbery and four counts of aggravated assault. He was released by the team in early September. On Monday, Broward County prosecutors dropped all charges against Mr. Baker.- Advertisement – The charges stem from the incident in May in Miramar, Fla., where, witnesses claimed, three men robbed people at a cookout of $70,000 in cash and jewelry after one of the men pulled a gun. The witnesses identified New York Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker, Seattle Seahawks safety Quinton Dunbar and a man wearing a red mask as the perpetrators. The man in the red mask was never identified, and charges against Mr. Dunbar were dropped in August, according to The Miami Herald. The lawyer representing three men who accused two N.F.L. players of robbery and assault in Florida was arrested on Monday morning and charged with attempting to extort roughly $800,000 from one of the athletes in exchange for having his clients alter their testimony.Four men accused the players of robbing them at gunpoint at a cookout on May 13, but three of them later recanted their testimony and the fourth refused to answer prosecutors’ questions, according to a statement from the Broward County state attorney.- Advertisement – The Broward County Sheriff’s Office said on Monday that investigators believed that Mr. Dean wanted Mr. Baker to pay each of his clients more than $266,000 in exchange for either changing their testimony or refusing to cooperate further with prosecutors in the case. “Evidence in the case reveals that Dean told Baker’s attorney that his clients would do ‘anything you want, so long as the money is right,’” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.Mr. Dean was arrested by Broward County sheriff’s deputies and U.S. marshals in North Miami Beach early Monday morning.Citing a continuing investigation by the Broward State Attorney’s Office and the Broward Sheriff’s Office, a spokeswoman for Broward County declined to comment further about the case against Mr. Dean.Bradford Cohen, Mr. Baker’s lawyer, said on Monday that his client was the victim of a shakedown, and that Mr. Dean had originally sought $1.5 million. No money ever changed hands, Mr. Cohen said.“These guys wanted money to go away,” Mr. Cohen said of the men who accused Mr. Baker, noting that the accusers’ testimony changed over time. “I hope the N.F.L. will look at this case and let cases play out before they decide to suspend a player.”Asked why the case was filed against Mr. Baker when there supposedly were dubious witnesses, Mr. Cohen said: “Because it was a high-profile case. Your fame is a detriment when you have a criminal case against you.” A spokesperson for the New York Giants declined to comment via email. Mr. Dunbar, 28, still plays for the Seattle Seahawks, but the team announced on Nov. 13 that he was out with a knee injury.The case against Mr. Baker unraveled as the men who accused him began to change their story, or became uncooperative altogether. According to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, Mr. Dean came under investigation in August after information emerged that he was trying to extort Mr. Baker.“The alleged victims and the known witnesses have become uncooperative and their credibility is inalterably tarnished,” Assistant State Attorney Paul R. Valcore said in a statement on Monday. One of Mr. Baker’s accusers refused to answer questions, and prosecutors moved to have that accuser held in contempt of court, Mr. Valcore said. William A. Dean, 50, the managing partner of the Florida law firm Ford, Dean & Rotundo, was charged in Broward County on Monday with soliciting payments for three clients in exchange for their changing their testimony or ceasing to cooperate with prosecutors. A woman who answered the phone at Ford, Dean & Rotundo said Mr. Dean was unavailable to speak. Further calls asking the firm for comment on Mr. Dean’s arrest resulted in the line being disconnected. – Advertisement – William DeanCredit…Broward County Sheriff’s Office – Advertisement –last_img read more

Editorial on pollution notification missed mark

first_imgTransparency is vital in public works and we therefore provided notification of our findings well in advance of the deadline set forth by the NYSDOH.We received the final notification and instructions from the Department of Health on January 3, 2018, and issued our statement to the public on January 8, 2018.  The state had given the CPWA until January 20th to provide notification, but we felt it was important to address the issue as soon as we had conclusive findings to report.  The editorial’s suggestion that the public could have been alerted earlier would have not only elicited a disproportionate magnitude of worry within the community but is also just inaccurate.  Each step of the process was done in a timely fashion and in compliance with federal, state and local regulations.  Helmut GerstenbergerClifton ParkThe writer is CPWA board chairmanMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationControversial solar project goes before Clifton Park Planning BoardEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homes On behalf of the CPWA, I would like to address the inaccuracies listed in the editorial published by the Gazette in its Wednesday, January 24, 2018 issue.  The editorial indicated that we knowingly withheld public health information from the community we live in and serve, an accusation that could cause unwarranted harm to our customer’s confidence in the safety of the public water supply.The CPWA does frequent sampling to ensure it is providing safe, quality water.  To remain in legal compliance and uphold our responsibility to the community, we routinely sample and test the water supply to ensure quality and compliance with all state and federal regulations, including all those established under the Safe Drinking Water Act.  All sample results are forwarded by the testing laboratory to the NYS Department of Health, where the data is examined and compliance is determined. The CPWA received results on December 11, 2017, for testing done in November, indicating that the samples from the northernmost part of its service area contained a higher level of a byproduct of the disinfection process, substances known as Haloacetic Acids (HAA), than is permitted by federal regulation.  The Saratoga County Water Authority, from whom we purchase water supplies for the affected region, immediately resampled for further testing.  The results issued on December 29, 2017, indicated that HAA levels had dropped to well below the regulatory limit.  Thanks to these follow-up efforts, the CPWA and the Department of Health were able to determine that the water had already returned to normal, satisfactory levels and did not pose a health concern.   Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

JoePa’s grand experiment produced perfection

first_imgREMEMBERING JOE—Penn State football trading cards, candles and flowers placed by fans are displayed near a statue of former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno outside Beaver Stadium on the Penn State University campus on Jan. 22, in State College, Pa. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar) by Ralph D. Russo(AP)—In the mid-1960s, there was no such thing as a Northeastern power in college football.Michigan State and Notre Dame dominated the Midwest. Bear Bryant’s Alabama teams ruled the South. Out West, UCLA was at its best and USC was rising again.Then came Joe Paterno. “Here was this little old school from the East that didn’t know how to compete with the bigger conferences,” said Charlie Pittman, who played running back at Penn State from 1967-69.That’s what others said about Penn State. The Nittany Lions knew better.With players such as Pittman, Franco Harris, Lydell Mitchell, Jack Ham and Mike Reid, Paterno changed that in 1968 and ‘69, with back-to-back undefeated seasons.Neither earned the Nittany Lions a national championship. They had to settle for No. 2 in the AP’s college football poll each year, but Penn State was now a national powerhouse and Paterno was a coaching star.His career started modestly in 1966, going 5-5 in his first season as the replacement for his mentor, Rip Engle. The East hadn’t had a national title winner since Syracuse in 1959 and was looked upon as a weak region in the college football landscape.Paterno’s first team lost 42-8 to No. 1 Michigan State and 49-11 to No. 4 UCLA, and the ‘67 season started with a loss to Navy.Instead of being loyal to the upperclassmen, “He decided to play the best guys,” Pittman said.The Nittany Lions beat the Hurricanes 17-8 in Miami, lost 17-15 to No. 4 UCLA and Heisman Trophy winner Gary Beban the next week, and finished the season 8-2-1.Paterno had a keen eye for talent and was skilled at finding the best ways to use it.“He took quarterbacks and made them linebackers. He took running backs and made them defensive backs,” said Pittman, who played two years in the NFL and now is the vice president of publishing company based in South Bend, Ind.And long before every football coach talked about the “process” of preparing a team, Paterno pored over the smallest details and implored his players to do the same.“Take care of the small stuff and the big things will take care of themselves,” was one of Paterno’s messages, Pittman said. That meant on the practice field and in the classroom.“Penn State won because he wanted to recruit people with the same values he had,” Pittman said. “People who wanted to compete at the highest level and people who wanted to participate and truly enjoy college, not just to play football.”Paterno called it his “Grand Experiment.”“I always tell people we came to Penn State as young kids and when we left there we were men and the reason for that was Joe Paterno,” Mitchell said.Paterno and Penn State finally won the national championship in 1982 and he added another in 1986. The “Grand Experiment” unveiled in 1967 had produced an elite college football program.last_img read more
