Councilman Seeks Public Input on Skate Park Site

first_imgA proposed site for a new skateboard park in Ocean City is bounded by the Fire Department, Primary School and Tabernacle.Councilman Mike DeVlieger asked Thursday that a council workshop scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, April 3 be dedicated to a public forum on a proposed skateboard park site.The tentative meeting at the Ocean City Free Public Library would seek feedback on creating a park on a portion of the parking lot adjacent to the Ocean City Fire Department on the 500 block of Asbury Avenue.DeVlieger said that he and Business Administrator Mike Dattilo met with county officials earlier Thursday to talk about applying for a state Green Acres grant to help fund part of any potential project. He said the county believes it would be beneficial to have a specific location in any grant application.Proponents of the park spoke during public comment at Thursday’s City Council meeting. But DeVlieger said he hoped that attendees at next week’s workshop would represent all perspectives.“All are welcome,” DeVlieger said. “I don’t want a biased point of view.”Read more about the skate park proposal.__________Sign up for OCNJ Daily’s free newsletter“Like” us on Facebooklast_img read more

Pembrokeshire to rival Cornwall on pasties

first_imgA new firm – The Pembrokeshire Pasty & Pie Co – has announced plans to open outlets nationwide, in a bid to challenge the Cornish pasty with its own Pembrokeshire variant. The first outlet will open in Tenby on 1 March, and will be followed by another in central Cardiff this summer.Joint director Oliver Booth told British Baker the firm is likely to look for a third outlet in Wales, before looking at locations in England. It then plans a roll-out of the chain over the next five years. “It would be lovely to have 10 outlets, by then,” said Booth.He spotted the business opportunity after discovering that Pembrokeshire has its own traditional pasty, but that nobody was selling it. The Pembrokeshire pasty contains Welsh lamb, redcurrant jelly, currants and mint. All the ingredients for the six pasties and pies on the menu are fully traceable back to its partner farm in North Pembrokeshire, which prepares the products, or to other local farms, said Booth.The pies and pasties, which have names such as The Friendly Dragon and The Tenby Treat, will then be baked on-site daily.last_img read more

Haiti, Drugs Top North American Talks

first_imgBy Dialogo December 15, 2010 The top US, Canadian and Mexican diplomats met here on 13 December to help Central American nations fight drug cartels and ensure contested Haitian election results are properly reviewed, US officials said. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Foreign Ministers Lawrence Cannon of Canada and Patricia Espinosa of Mexico also met in the rural Quebec community of Wakefield to discuss border security and regional trade, US officials said. Arturo Valenzuela, the assistant secretary of state for western hemisphere affairs, told reporters before leaving Washington that the three top diplomats will map out the agenda for a summit of their three leaders early in 2011. A portion of the meeting will be on “broad foreign policy discussions,” he said. “The biggest emphasis will be with regard to Central America and also Haiti. I’m sure Haiti will be a very important part of the discussion,” Valenzuela said. Senior US officials said North American governments feared the drug cartels could relocate to Central American nations as they faced government crackdowns in Mexico and Colombia. There is a “tremendous need to address the problem of security in Central America,” the official added. “Central American leaders welcome Canadian and Mexican assistance and coordination on their borders,” another official said, adding the North American states can help strengthen the police and courts in Central America. Cannon has said meanwhile that Canada is offering to take part in an international-led recount of ballots in Haiti’s disputed presidential election, which has led to deadly rioting. The Canadian foreign minister suggested on 12 December that Ottawa could be part of “a mixed international committee” to supervise a fresh tally of ballots, after charges of irregularities marred the November 28 vote. The Haitian election saw President Rene Preval’s handpicked protege Jude Celestin make it through to a second round run-off, edging out popular opposition candidate Michel Martelly by less than 7,000 votes. In a bid to counter widespread allegations of fraud and to stave off protests, Haiti’s Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) has announced plans to add up all the tally sheets in the presence of the three main candidates. US officials also sought to help the election review process. “We’ve been following it very closely and are engaged to try to assure that the review is a proper review, that the legitimacy of the election can be enhanced through this review,” a senior US official said on condition of anonymity. “I suspect that given the controversies surrounding the election that the discussion of Haiti may be more important than we might have envisioned it when we were first putting this meeting together,” he said. US officials said the three diplomas will also discuss developing common standards in renewable energy and sell the energy across all three markets. They said Mexico’s strengths in developing solar and wind power.last_img read more

Get out of the driver’s seat: An easier way to order branded merchandise

first_img 15SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Brett Jackson Brett Jackson has been dedicated to building vibrant, competitive, breakthrough brands in the world of financial institutions for over a decade now. As the CEO of Systemax Corporation, a company … Web: www.systemaxsolutions.com Details We’ve all been there- it’s a week before the golf outing/5k fundraiser/community event and you totally forgot to get the apparel and giveaway items ordered. It is crunch time and you find yourself in panic mode trying to figure out what can get printed in time, praying you order the correct quantity and sizes. We find the majority of our clients handle these situations by passing around the dreaded excel spreadsheet collecting style of apparel, color, sizes and, of course, money!  There is an easier way.  By utilizing a Corporate Store, you can eliminate these timely, stressful tasks.A Corporate Store is a platform allowing you to consolidate spending and effectively distribute your branded merchandise/apparel. Typically I see credit union’s benefiting in four main areas:Easy Access and Ordering – quick and easy way to access corporate branded merchandiseControl Spending – set budgets for employees throughout different departments and/or locationsMinimize Administration – reduce the amount of time spent ordering branded merchandiseControl Branding – your branded materials are approved to match your corporate branding guidelinesOnce you decide that a utilizing a Corporate Store is the right decision, you then begin shopping for the  appropriate styles and colors to express your brand.  (Some companies will even do that work for you, so there is really no upfront time devoted to getting the store up and running).  Once your online store is up and running with the choices you selected, employees are now able to go out and purchase the apparel and products of their choice. Within selecting the style of apparel to order, one can also determine certain colors that can be purchased. Therefore, if your logo is green, Sally won’t be able to order a yellow shirt. If it is a piece that the employee will be paying for, they have the ability to enter their credit card information for the order as well… removing the step where you have to play “collections officer”. The same process within the Corporate Store can be applied to various promotional items as well.By putting your employees in the driver seat to make decisions, with you holding the ultimate control…..it’s the perfect formula for corporate ordering.last_img read more
