PeaceHealth employees vote for union choice

first_imgA group of about 900 PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center service and laboratory employees have voted to affiliate with the American Federation of Teachers, joining about 2,000 other hospital employees already represented by the union.The employees voted 319-110 to be represented by AFT. The 904 people in the newly represented group include full- and part-time employees, as well as per diem employees, who work at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center, including its Mill Plain specialty clinic, Physicians Pavilion, Memorial Urgent Care, Family Medicine, Hospice Southwest, Ray Hickey Hospice House, and the Salmon Creek specialty and pain management clinic.The employees include those working as cooks, technicians, lab assistants, medical assistants, certified nursing assistants, unit secretaries and home health aides, among other jobs.Earlier this year, licensed technical professionals at the hospital voted to form the 313-member PeaceHealth Southwest Caregivers United union under the umbrella of the AFT and its Oregon Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals affiliate. PeaceHealth Southwest nurses are members of the Washington State Nurses Association, which is also under the AFT umbrella.“I’m thrilled to welcome the service and maintenance workers at PeaceHealth Southwest into the AFT family,” AFT President Randi Weingarten said in a news release. “The union is a vehicle for these workers to help their patients and themselves — to ensure the patients they serve receive the care they need, and to fight for the wages and fair treatment on the job that every worker at PeaceHealth deserves.”last_img read more

House bill backing I5 Bridge replacement wins approval

first_imgSouthwest Washington lawmakers are determined to prove to their counterparts in Oregon that they are ready to revive conversations about a replacing the Interstate 5 Bridge. “The Columbia River Crossing (project) is dead. The federal money is gone, but we still need a bridge,” Rep. Sharon Wylie, D-Vancouver, said on the House floor of the Legislature on Monday afternoon. Later, she added, “Oregon has been waiting for a serious signal, that’s why this project is designated as statewide significance. It’s terminology that makes sense to them. It’s terminology they use.” House Bill 2095 passed 60-38 and now heads to the Senate for consideration. Republican Paul Harris of Vancouver would like to send another message to the group of people, including some of his colleagues in the Legislature who want to focus on a third, new crossing over the Columbia River before easing congestion on the I-5 Bridge. “I think the idea Oregon is going to look at other corridors before the I-5. … I’m sorry, that is not going to happen,” Harris said, adding: “There should be multiple crossings across the river, I completely agree. This is the first step.” Part of the goal of designating the bridge a project of statewide significance was to quell a growing movement of those pushing to focus first on a third east-or-west county bridge before addressing the aging I-5 crossing. A companion bill in the Senate stripped the “statewide significance” language from the bill, but the legislative intent remains the same. Both versions of the bill call for an inventory and cataloguing of all the previous work done on the Columbia River Crossing project. The measures would create a legislative action committee, made up of key stakeholders and Department of Transportation employees in Oregon and Washington.last_img read more

Judge in Hawaii puts revised federal travel ban on hold

first_imgGREENBELT, Md. — Hours before it was to take effect, President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban was put on hold Wednesday by a federal judge in Hawaii after hearing arguments that the executive order discriminates on the basis of nationality.The ruling came as opponents renewed their legal challenges across the country, asking judges in three states to block the executive order that targets people from six predominantly Muslim countries.Trump is blasting the court for halting what he’s calling a “watered-down version” of his travel ban.More than half a dozen states are trying to stop the ban, and federal courts in Maryland, Washington state and Hawaii heard arguments about whether it should be put into practice early Thursday.U.S. District Court Judge Derrick Watson decision prevents the executive order from going into effect, at least for now. Hawaii had requested a temporary restraining order.Hawaii also argued that the ban would prevent residents from receiving visits from relatives in the six countries covered by the order. The state says the ban would harm its tourism industry and the ability to recruit foreign students and workers.last_img read more

La Center schools look to address crowding

first_imgLA CENTER — Finding room for all roughly 1,700 students in the La Center School District has turned into a slider puzzle of sorts for Superintendent Dave Holmes and other district officials.The district started putting in portables to deal with the growing population, and with nine portables — each equipped with two classrooms — at the K-8 campus, the district has nearly run out of room to put in another one. The district started shifting around offices, clearing out closet space, to help make extra room. Holmes has also suggested moving kindergarten to portables at the La Center High School campus starting next year, although the school board has yet to vote on that.But the most significant relief for the district will be decided by voters in February, when the district puts a bond up for vote to build a new school.“Over the last 10 years, our enrollment has gone straight up,” Holmes said. “We added portables, but those were supposed to be temporary classrooms. Instead, we keep adding them on and on and on. We’re maxed out on portables.”The school board is still working through the bond process, and will vote on the exact bond measure to put on the ballot in October.last_img read more

Battle Ground school board to vote on bond proposal

first_imgVoters in the Battle Ground school district could again consider a school bond to replace and repair aging facilities — this time with a higher price tag than requested last year.The Battle Ground Public Schools board of directors will today vote on whether to submit a nearly $225 million bond proposition over 21 years to voters in a special election on Feb. 13.The district last went out for a bond in November 2016, that time in the amount of $80 million — just over a third of the amount the district could request now. The bond received 55.43 percent of the 32,386 votes cast, but bonds require 60 percent approval to pass.Superintendent Mark Ross said higher construction costs, and additional projects, contributed to the higher bond proposition.In the aftermath of last year’s bond failure, the district consulted the Facilities Improvement Team, a group made up of district citizens and staff, to determine the needs of the district. Overcrowding and safety concerns prompted the group to request a similar package of replacements and improvements.“We’re looking at needs,” Ross said. “They’re not fantasy wish lists.”Ross said the new bond proposal, if approved, includes the same projects as last year’s, such as new primary and middle schools to replace Glenwood Heights Primary and Laurin Middle School campus, and the Pleasant Valley Primary and Middle School campus at the district’s south end. The district has targeted those campuses for reconstruction because they are among the oldest buildings in the district, and because their enrollment has exceeded their building capacity.last_img read more

Valverdes plan for Barcelonas new signings after the break

first_imgWe reveal the plans that Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde has for the new arrivals after the international break, detailed information from the inside.Just when you maybe thought that the latest FC Barcelona signings weren’t getting the playing time everyone expected, we come and tell you what manager Ernesto Valverde’s plans for all the new players are, or at least the most prominent. The start of the new season has been mostly dominated by players who were already a part of the squad before the summer transfer market, with only Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal really getting some participation on the first three official matches of La Liga season for FC Barcelona. But the other three prominent players who have been signed by the club this summer have barely gotten any minutes, people started wondering why this was happening and it was recently revealed that this is part of the overall plan that the Spanish manager has for his new arrivals. This new season with the latest signings is not going to be like the ones from previous seasons, in which many of the players who arrived will not get any participation at all. We tell you the specific plans Valverde has for his most interesting new signings.Alegria por viver esse momento ?? pic.twitter.com/TLolHiHTAU— Arthur Melo (@arthurhromelo) September 4, 2018Arthur MeloLike Lionel Messi said it during his latest interview for Catalunya Radio, Brazilian Arthur is the player that surprised him the most because his playing style is very reminiscent to Xavi Hernandez’s. We all know what the Catalan player meant to the institution, which is why Ernesto Valverde is being extra careful with this player’s adaptation to the club, he didn’t receive any minutes at the start of the season because he plans to rest a couple of names from his usual starting eleven and then Arthur will get his playing time.  The plan is to give him more minutes for the crucial match at Real Sociedad after the international break, this will be a perfect test for everyone to find out if he has what it takes to play for Barcelona.Seguimos sumando gracias a Dios!!???? buen triunfo equipo!!?? @fcbarcelona @miguelruizfcb pic.twitter.com/IJ8kcHLXSb— Arturo Vidal (@kingarturo23) September 2, 2018Arturo VidalThe Chile international has already gotten a few minutes during some of the first matches of La Liga season, but Arturo Vidal should get a more prominent role in the squad because both Leo Messi and Luis Suarez feel a lot safer with him covering their backs. There is a misconception about Arturo Vidal not being a great football player and only being good at tackling, but people who have followed his career know that he plays top-class football and there is a lot he can give to FC Barcelona in the near future. The problem with Arturo is that he is still not fully recovered from the knee injury he suffered last year, which is something that everybody should worry about because of how sensitive this area is.David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.? Bienvenue @clement_lenglet!?? Welcome to Barça!⚽️ #EnjoyLenglet? #EnjoyBarça pic.twitter.com/NS0IFa7KwJ— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) July 12, 2018Clément LengletThis French center-back has been playing impressive football for some time now at Sevilla FC, Barcelona had been following him for years and he is destined to replace Gerard Pique in the future for when the Catalan player decides to hang up his boots. The 23-year old just needed one season at Sevilla to impress the world, but the Catalan club had tabs on him since his days as a Ligue 1 player for Nancy. Lenglet has all the characteristics that the prototype Barcelona defender must have, he has perfect ball control, prodigious technique, and GPS like positioning on the field than any player in the world would kill for.❗ [MEDICAL REPORT] Malcom has a sprained right ankle.More details ? https://t.co/LRFdyef2DX ?? #ForçaBarça pic.twitter.com/LzI2Lw89wB— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) September 3, 2018MalcomThe plan for the Brazilian was quite simple, they wanted to get competition for Ousmane Dembele who appeared to have lost the will to fight for his position at the end of last season. But the Frenchman’s explosive first few matches may delay the Brazilian’s playing minutes for Barcelona, he also suffered an ankle injury this week that will keep him out of competition for a few weeks but it’s nothing serious. After the international break, the most likely scenario is that Dembele will stay in the starting eleven but Malcom will become more important as the season gets more progress. This is a player who has all the usual abilities that any Brazilian winger usually gets from birth, but his youth may get in the way of an evolution that will transform him into a world-class offensive player for Barcelona. Which of these new Barcelona signings are you expecting to watch more frequently after the international break? Please share your opinion in the comment section down below.last_img read more

Redknapp Ole deserves credit for improving United

first_imgJamie Redknapp praised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for improving Manchester United players after suggesting they “downed tools” under the previous manager Jose Mourinho.United continued Solskjaer’s 100% run with the sixth win thanks to Marcus Rashford’s goal before the break.However, Paul Pogba, who provided a brilliant assist for the goal stole the headlines with his display but Redknapp feels all the players have raised their game in recent weeks.“I just think Pogba is enjoying his football. He has freedom, he has a manager that believes in him, but the point is it’s not just Pogba, it’s everybody,” he told Sky.“Pogba is so high profile that he’s the one we focus on, but what about all the other players? What about the goalkeeper [David de Gea] that couldn’t make a save to save his life a while ago, now he looks like the keeper we all knew.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“It’s the same for every player in that United side. They had downed tools for the last manager, whether you like it or not, it was so obvious. I have watched United this season and they have been diabolical for pretty much all of it.“All of a sudden a new manager comes in and they have a bit of freedom and they are enjoying it and Pogba looks like the player from the World Cup.“Ole deserves credit but I don’t think it needed a rocket scientist to go in there and do that. It was purely because the other manager they weren’t keen on and they couldn’t wait for a new manager to come in. He has come in and now they are playing well and playing at the level they should be.“It’s not just about Pogba but I do think he’s a good player who sometimes needs to be told that. I don’t think he’s as confident as he makes out with social media, I think he needs an arm around the shoulder like most good players.”last_img read more

Derrick Kellier.He was speaking recently at the official closing ceremony for the 2014 Steps-to-Work summer camp held at the Chestervale Youth Camp in Eco Village, St. Andrew.A total of 111 at-risk youth from PATH beneficiary households island-wide, received skills and development training at this year’s camp.The camp provided an opportunity for school dropouts to develop literacy and job skills to re-enter the school system or seek employment.Minister Kellier said that the Steps-to-Work Programme is about graduating people from welfare to well-being. “PATH and Steps-to-Work are important elements of the National Social Protection Strategy, and are recognition of the powerful outcome that is possible when the country invests in human capital,” Minister Kellier said.

Arias and Veras deaths may be connected says CP James Smith

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp As for that Blue Nissan March which was mentioned in a press conference yesterday as picking up the young woman from her home in Five Cays around 4am on July 10; it may not be a killer who was driving it and officer Snow made an appeal for the person to talk to police or crime stoppers as they want clues, they want to close this case and catch the murderer who remains at large.“If that person is not involved in the disappearance or the murder of Sindy, I want them to come forward.”– ASP Stephen Snow Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, July 15, 2016 – Bombshell dropped  when Commissioner of Police, James Smith said there is possibly connection between the Arias and Veras murders, who today addressed media on this heinous crime which continues to shock the country.  There is appall for the images which were posted on social media and though they are striking and compelling, the Commissioner refused to divulge the condition of the 26 year old’s body which was late yesterday found by one of the search teams organized by her compatriots.“We see some clear links, but it’s too early for us to say that there is evidence to connect to the two.  That will be the subject of a detailed and clinical forensic examination by Mr. Snow, Mr. Baptiste and their crew.” – CP James SmithMedia today for the first time officially, heard from investigative specialist from the UK, ASP Stephen Snow, who said Police do not want to speculate; we asked how Arias was killed and if she was sexually assaulted.“The autopsy hasn’t been completed, or in fact carried out, so therefor i’m not in a position to say how she died, it will be pure speculation to say how she died at this time.  We are working closely with the pathologist that who provides support to this island, and we are indeed trying to get the pathologist on the island as soon as possible.  From my prospective and Mr. Baptiste’s prospective it’s a priority.”  When asked if he believes that she was sexually violated, his response was, “I cannot say, we don’t know.” – ASP Stephen SnowThey will aim to work expeditiously on the body so that Arias’ family can have her as soon as possible and police were not prepared to agree that we are dealing with a targeted move against Dominican women, nor were they prepared to agree with the description of a serial killer; but they did approve thoughts that the murderer is vile.  “It’s very difficult to categorize the type of individual without having a profile done by an expert, which is one of the areas of course that we’re investigating, but I think it doesn’t take too much to say that this is a very violent individual, a dangerous individual, and I would reiterate what Mr. Snow said, somebody knows the identity of that person.” – CP James SmithSorineida’s body was found off the main North West Point road and ASP Snow shared how they scoured the zone for evidence.“Again around the area of the body, there was a detailed forensic examination, there has to be a detailed examination looking for evidence that may have been left by the offender or offenders at the scene.”– ASP Stephen Snowcenter_img Related Items:last_img read more
