Charities offered places on Great South West Walk

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Ken Carter, Chairman of the Great South West Walk, said: “Throughout the year we see various charities benefitting from walks around the South West Coast Path and the organisation involved is considerable. With our Great South West Walk everything is in place for the charities – from posters and registration forms to the website and entry system. We will also deal with issues such as transport and insurance for walkers – leaving charities to just focus on the task of engaging supporters for their own cause.”He added: “The £60 from each Golden Bond will help cover our costs, as well as raise some funds towards our own target of £250,000 for the Coast Path itself.”Many take for granted that the path will always be there as a vital fundraising tool, when in fact funding for its maintenance has shrunk in recent years. The £250,000 that we are raising is for improvement projects to the path, over and above general maintenance, to ensure it is accessible and of a surface safe to walk on all year round.”Golden Bonds must be purchased by 1 February 2013, and each charity’s walkers must be registered with the SWCPA by 18 February.Charities can choose to get involved with just one or several legs of the walk. About the Great South West WalkThe Great South West Walk, which celebrates the SWCPA’s 40th anniversary, takes place in April and May 2013 and will consist of a series of sponsored walks which have been broken down into 56 legs. Done in relay, the legs will cover the entire 630 mile path around Dorset, Devon and Cornwall, as well as the Exmoor coast through Somerset. Each leg will be guided by local experts, rangers and path wardens, who are all assisting the SWCPA with this event.www.GreatSouthWestWalk.co.ukPhoto: Chris Bookholt About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

In return, the Association will relieve participating charities of the logistics and administration involved in this kind of event.Charities that wish to take part can by a ‘Golden Bond’ to secure a place for a walker for £60 each.The SWCPA hopes that this will enable charities, especially smaller charities that could never take on organising an event like this, the chance to benefit from it.

U.S. Cuba Network extends solidarity to Charleston massacre victims

first_img“Take Down the Flag” rally in Columbia, S.C.WW photo: Bill StarrThe following statement was issued on June 20, 2015.The National Network on Cuba extends our solidarity to the survivors and our condolences to the families of the victims of the racist terror attack on Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. The Mother Emanuel AME Church is a symbol and example of African-American communities who have fought racism and oppression from before the first slave ships left the coast of Africa to the Black Lives Matter movement today. A founder of this church, Denmark Vesey, was hanged for planning a rebellion to end slavery.The corporate media’s uniform script is predictable. Once again the portrayal is of an individual reprehensible act. There is a different public discourse presented for people of African descent and other people of color. A white shooter is portrayed as a disturbed individual: in Columbine, in Tucson, in Oklahoma City, in Raleigh, in Milwaukee, but if someone has an Arab name, they are immediately labeled an international terrorist conspirator and they and all people who look like them are assumed guilty.Where is the outcry, the signs, the full front page declarations: “WE ARE ALL PASTOR PINCKNEY!” “ WE ARE ALL MOTHER EMANUEL AME CHURCH!” “WE SAY NO TO RACISM!” like the ones that followed the Charlie Hebdo killings in France?The emblems of the racist apartheid regime in South Africa and white settler Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, displayed on the shooter’s Facebook page could not show his allegiance to white supremacy and oppression more clearly. This racist massacre could never happen in Cuba because the very foundation of that country is based on respect for humanity and collective care for each other. In Cuba, these words are not just phrases but something they practice daily. These basic principles of solidarity between people also extend to the world, where time and time again Cuba has been the shining example of sending brigades to help fight against diseases, and they are first responders when a disaster happens. Cuba never asks for anything in return, like when they sent military assistance to Angola in the 1980s to help defeat the racist South African Army.The National Network on Cuba stands with the people of Charleston and says no to racism and white supremacy.Nalda VigezziBanbose ShangoFranklin CurbelloCheryl LaBashAlicia JrapkoFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Indy Farm Expo Concludes, Attendance Up in Year Two of New…

first_img Photo credit Chad Colby/@TheChadColbyThe Indiana Farm Equipment & Technology Expo concluded on Thursday. The 3-day event was held at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Expo President Gary Truitt, also the president and founder of Hoosier Ag Today, says attendance at this year’s show was up from previous years.“Those of you who have been coming to the show for a long time realize that in the past few years the attendance at this has really dwindled. We stopped that bleeding last year by retooling the show, and certainly we’re on the upswing now.”In an ag economy that is not the best right now, Truitt says, “Our attendance was above last year. We had a great day on Wednesday with around 2,000 people through the door. In total, we’re going to top 4,000 farmers coming through the show, which is twice what we were just a couple of years ago.”It was announced in 2018 that the Indiana-Illinois Farm and Outdoor Power Equipment Show would be ending after 39 years. That was before Truitt and Gary Thoe, President of Farm World newspaper, decided the Indiana tradition needed to continue. Truitt says that the show, now renamed and retooled, will return in 2020 after seeing that upswing in attendance.Dates for the 2020 show have yet to be determined. After receiving valuable feedback from farmers and exhibitors, Truitt says to expect new ideas and some surprises at next year’s show.

Marlin added that Chinese interest in China is still evident, but they are moving away from high-priced homes.According to a recent Gallup poll, 35% of Americans believe real estate to be the superior long-term financial investment, compared to 27% who say stocks are the better investment. For real estate investors, tech such apps which allow for remote bidding could provide a quicker way to take advantage of the rising positive sentiment toward real estate as an investment.Additionally, many current homeowners (around 1 in 10) say they would prefer going back to renting over owning, according to Gallup’s research, which could be a boon for single-family rental investment.The Wall Street Journal also reported that real estate investment trusts (REIT) are growing rapidly. Real-estate investment trusts that buy residential home loans increased their mortgage-bond portfolios by almost 28% to $308 billion over the 12 months through March, the largest stockpile in six years, and according to Eisen, are poised to continue to grow as the government’s housing market role shrinks.Though these firms are small compared to the mortgage market as a whole, the report states that some analysts express concern that they are putting more of the mortgage market into the hands of leveraged firms with minimal oversight, noting that some risky REITs went bust during the last financial crisis. However, some suggest that REITs make up an optimal backbone for the mortgage market, leveraging less risk than before the financial crisis and able to quickly raise and deploy money when they see an opportunity.“If you want to have more private capital in the market, you need to manage the risks,” Calvin Schnure, SVP for Research and Economic Analysis at Nareit, told the Journal. “Mortgage REITs hedge all of those risks.”Why foreign buyers invest in US residential real estate from CNBC.

Published 3:00 am Thursday, January 22, 2015 Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By Blood Sugar Blaster Flowers said his dad was assigned as a crewman of a 20-mm, anti-aircraft armored cannon post.“The U.S.S. Intrepid was attacked by Japanese suicide bombers or Kamikaze planes,” he said. “The crewman that was manning the armored cannon post was shot and my dad pulled him from the tub, grabbed the gun and started shooting and didn’t stop.”Flowers said his dad was facing certain death by staying on the post but he stayed and kept shooting. He brought down the Kamikaze plane that was coming right in on the ship.“Had he not shot the plane down and it has crashed into the ship’s deck, many lives would have been lost,” Flowers said. “For his actions, he received the Bronze Star for bravery under fire.”Files from the Secretary of the Navy verified Flowers heroics on Oct. 29, 1944 during a “violent attack against the Intrepid.” The file stated, “by Flowers’ determined and courageous efforts in the face of almost certain death, he materially aided in diverting the enemy plane from crashing on the flight deck and his conduct throughout was in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.”Flowers said he would like to further honor his dad’s service to country by visiting the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York to see the aircraft on which his dad served so gallantly during the attack launched by a group of Japanese dive bombers.

Forrest Kaelin, Dean Of Kentucky Trainers, Dies At 83

first_img‘He was part of the Ellis community for more than 65 years and remains with us as an important and memorable part of our history’Forrest Kaelin, the dean of Kentucky horsemen and a fixture at Ellis Park for almost 70 years as a jockey and a trainer, died Thursday at his Louisville home. He was 83 and had been married to Betty Kaelin for 63 years.Kaelin, a native of Louisville, retired May 31 because failing health. He won 1,600 races out of 12,417 starters that earned $17.7 million in a training career that started in 1963, according to Equibase, the official industry data provider. Kaelin won the 1988 Ellis Park training title with 14 wins.“That was his life,” Betty Kaelin said of her husband’s long-time love affair with the sport. “He had a good life, he really did.”His best horse in recent years was Good Lord, a three-time winner of Ellis Park’s Don Bernhardt Memorial and for whom the track this year renamed that dirt sprint stakes, which was won last Sunday by Majestic Affair. Good Lord won 15 races and earnings of $803,305 while winning nine stakes, including the Don Bernhardt 2012-2014, the 2012 Kentucky Downs Turf Dash, Churchill Downs’ 2014 Kelly’s Landing and the Mountaineer Mile twice.Kaelin’s last of four graded-stakes victories came in 1999 with Da Devil, who won Turfway Park’s Grade 2, $500,000 Kentucky Cup Classic at 65-1 odds, paying $132.80. Finishing third in the race was Cat Thief, who in his next start won the Breeders’ Cup Classic. Equineline, whose statistics go back to 1976, show Kaelin as winning 38 stakes races dating to that time.At the time of his retirement, Kaelin had been at Churchill Downs longer than any other active trainer. He won the first two runnings (1982-’83) with 18-time winner Vodka Collins of what now is Churchill Downs’ Grade I Stephen Foster Handicap, the Midwest’s premier summer dirt stakes for older horses. Kaelin won 344 races at Churchill from the 1965 fall meet until his last winner on May 11, Shea’s Cool, ranking 14th all-time at the track. Shea’s Cool was also his last starter, finishing third at Churchill Downs on May 28.Another 62 of his victories as a trainer came at Keeneland, including the 1975 Phoenix Stakes with Delta Oil. Jockey statistics that pre-date Equibase’s data base are harder to come by, but Keeneland records show Kaelin won 10 races at the Lexington track as a jockey from 1953-1962.“He was just a legendary horseman around Kentucky,” said trainer Jimmy Baker, a long-time friend who helped oversee the stable after Kaelin shipped north from Tampa Bay Downs in the spring. “Everybody loved him, liked him and respected him.”Baker added with a laugh, “He was one of the few trainers who didn’t love having veterinarians in his barn. Everything was pretty much old-school and homemade remedies for everything.”In addition to Betty, Kaelin is survived by daughter Terry Hall, granddaughter Brittany Arnold, grandson David Hall II, great-grandchildren Cohl Knoth, Piper Knoth and J.J. Arnold, along with sisters Libby Funk, Margaret Tucker and Pat Bachmann and brother Clyde “Boots” Kaelin. He was preceded in death by granddaughter Ashley King.Visitation will be 3-7 p.m. ET Monday at Pearson Funeral Home, 149 Breckenridge Lane in Louisville.“It’s a very sad day in the racing community,” said Ellis Park racing secretary Dan Bork. “Besides being a great horseman and very well-respected, Forrest was also one of the greatest people you could meet. He was part of the Ellis Park community for more than 65 years and remains with us as an important and memorable part of our history.”As a jockey, Kaelin was notable for riding 89 winners in 48 days at West Virginia’s Wheeling Downs at age 18, including six in a row on a single card. He rode for a decade before a serious spill sidelined him for almost a year. Betty ultimately convinced him to retire from the saddle and pursue a training career.Tampa Bay Downs racing secretary Allison De Luca first met Kaelin when she was racing secretary at the old Sportsman’s Park back in the 1980s.“Because he was a rider, I think that made him a better trainer,” De Luca said. “He knew all the riders and how they rode. But he was just a good horseman. The other thing about him is he cared about his horses, really loved them. One time I said, ‘What would you do if you hit the lottery?’ He said, ‘I wouldn’t do anything different. I want to see those heads poking out of those stalls.’ He was just a great guy. People always say that, but I really mean that.”Kaelin was a prodigious story-teller, who didn’t mind telling a story on himself. While he only had one Kentucky Derby starter, finishing 11th in 1997 with four-time stakes-winner Crimson Classic, he had a couple of “what if” brushes with greatness.Kaelin liked to recall how a gentleman from South America asked him to take his Venezuelan-based horse and train him in the United States for the 1971 Kentucky Derby.“Forrest got off the phone and said, ‘Who in the heck ever heard of a horse from wherever he was from coming over here and winning the Kentucky Derby?’” Betty said. “So when we’re sitting there watching Canonero II win the Kentucky Derby, I said, ‘Do you want me to push you or do you want to jump?’”Then in 1975, Kaelin went to buy a horse for a client, identifying two yearlings he liked. Betty says her husband wanted the one horse more than the other, but the owner didn’t have enough money to buy the horse who would sell for $17,500 and become 1977 Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew.“So Forrest got the other one,” Betty said. Could the other horse run? “Heck no,” she said. “Not like Seattle Slew.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
