Defendants How Much are Taxpayers Paying for Prosecutions Media Operation

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 29 Jan 2016 – Daily press releases. A website where their accusations are posted on a daily basis. A global media relations campaign. These are things that generally cost tens of thousands of dollars a month. And, it’s exactly what the prosecution is doing in support of their case. To that end, the defendants in the high profile TCI probe and trial are publicly presenting a few questions to the mystery group running this public affairs campaign on behalf of the prosecution.“I’d like to know how much this is costing, which taxpayers are paying for it and who is running this operation to make unproven allegations against the defendants in the press?” asked Michael Misick.“If we’re committed to a free and fair process, why are both sides not given an equal number of resources in which to pursue public relations? This, along with the fact that the defendants are denied a basic right to trial by jury are two examples of how the state is stacking the deck against the defense,” concluded Misick.McAllister “Piper” Hanchell concurs, “I’d also like to know who is running this website and if the tax dollars of Turks & Caicos Islanders are being used to finance a media smear campaign against the defendants? We all want a fair trial, but, when we don’t have access to a jury and the state uses taxpayer money to fund a PR blitz against us, you wonder if justice will really be served?” Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:McAllister “Piper” Hanchell, tax payerslast_img read more

Troopers tough on cell phone law skirters

first_imgOn the first day he could give a driver a ticket for doing nothing other than talking on a cell phone while behind the wheel, Trooper Steve Robley did just that, including one seven minutes after he clocked in.And guess what? There were no warnings given Thursday, only $124 tickets.Robley, an 11-year veteran of the Washington State Patrol, said he saw fewer drivers with phones held to their ears than usual, a trend repeated throughout Washington, according to WSP spokesman Bob Calkins.“Everybody has their hands (on the steering wheel) at 10 and 2 today,” Robley said.Well, not everybody.Robley gave out two tickets shortly after his shift began at 8 a.m., and two more when he guided two Columbian staffers during a midafternoon patrol. Drivers received no grace period to adjust to a law that was two years in the making. Until Thursday, the talking-texting violation had been a secondary offense, meaning drivers could only be cited when they were stopped for something else. On Thursday evening, the patrol was not sure how many tickets troopers issued in Clark County for talking and texting.Robley hypothesized rainy roadways and the strengthened law had drivers on their best behavior, but said he suspects bad habits will pick up after some time passes. “We’re giving tickets on day one,” Robley said.last_img read more

County grants AMR 2year extension to provide ambulance service

first_imgWith its contract set to expire Sept. 30, American Medical Response received a two-year extension Tuesday to provide ambulance service in Clark County.The extension was approved 2-1 by the Clark County commissioners, who were acting in their role as the Emergency Services Medical District 2 board.The vote had been twice delayed as commissioners encouraged AMR to whittle down the recommended increases to the average patient charge.Initially, AMR, which provides ambulance service to the county with the exception of Camas-Washougal and north county, estimated it would have to increase patient charges by 20 percent to account for revenue losses due to a growing population of uninsured and underinsured patients.AMR doesn’t get any public money for its service, instead earning its profits from billings.Under the contract approved Tuesday, patients will pay a 5 percent increase. The average patient charge will increase from $753 to $795, according to information supplied by Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency. Insured patients will pay an additional $8 co-pay and uninsured patients will pay an additional $34.AMR transports approximately 4,000 people a year in Clark County to local hospitals. In 2009, 3,050 patients were insured and 712 patients were uninsured.Terms changedThe fee increase was knocked down from 20 to 5 percent by changing a few terms of AMR’s contract. For example, response times will be rolled back to 2004 standards (an extra minute in suburban areas, two extra minutes in rural areas) and the county reduced the administrative fee that AMR pays for the contract.Commissioners Marc Boldt and Steve Stuart approved the contract extension, while Commissioner Tom Mielke voted no.Mielke said he didn’t want to support any fee increase.“It’s just a tough time right now,” Mielke said.But Boldt and Stuart acknowledged that it’s through no fault of AMR that a growing number of people are uninsured or underinsured or that the reimbursement rate from Medicaid has decreased. Between 2000 and 2009, the number of uninsured patients grew from 14 percent to 20 percent, according to CRESA. Patients on Medicare now account for 35 percent of patients, up from 17 percent of patients in 2000. “If we don’t move forward with this, the taxpayers will pay more,” Stuart said. “This small fee increase that affects one percent of the population will save money for 99 percent of the population.”Had the commissioners allowed the contract to expire, there would have been an open market for ambulance service in the county, which likely would have been more expensive.last_img read more

Where the Columbia spring chinook bit best

first_imgClick to enlarge When it comes to fishing in the lower Columbia River, not all areas are equal.Salmon tend to bite better in certain locations than they do in others. We’re not talking here about total catch, but rather catch-per-effort.Total catch is going to be the greatest where there are the most anglers. Catch-per-effort is like a batting average — statistically what your chances are of getting a fish each time you hit the water.The numbers are in for April’s spring chinook fishery in the lower Columbia. The river was open for 13 days in April and the Washington and Oregon departments of Fish and Wildlife generate catch estimates based on their angler sampling programs.Here’s what the numbers tell us. All of this combines hatchery fish kept plus wild fish released to produce a “success rate” percentage:o The best fishing occurred off the Oregon bank in the St. Helens area. It’s not a big secret that guys who fish off Sand Island at St. Helens do well in the spring. The location is just downstream of the mouth of Multnomah Channel, a main travel route the Willamette-origin spring chinook.last_img read more

Weather Service Worst flooding over but rain to continue

first_imgFlooding conditions have passed, but rain will likely continue into the evening, according to the National Weather Service.Heavy rain has prompted the agency to issue another flood advisory for this morning, which was in effect from 6 to 7:45 a.m. But the heavy downpours that caused flooding last night are over, said Andy Bryant, a hydrologist.“We don’t believe we’re going to have any more flooding issues,” Bryant said. “The flooding was more of an immediate response to heavy rain last evening. It was very localized street flooding.”Rainy conditions should continue this morning with showers into the afternoon. Another storm will enter the area Friday, causing rainy conditions through most of the daylight hours, he said.“We’re not expecting any huge accumulations,” Bryant said.Rain gauges indicated that 2 to 3 inches had fallen this morning since 2 a.m. in the Hockinson and Larch Mountain area of Clark County. The weather service said the excessive water from earlier will work its way through creeks and drainage. Drainage areas that could still have flooding issues include Fifth Plain Creek, Shanghai Creek, Salmon Creek and Lacamas Creek.The wet weather slowed traffic during the morning commute, with backups on I-5, but no major traffic accidents were reported. Only 3 accidents were reported during rush hour this morning.Motorists are advised not to drive vehicles into areas where the water covers the roadway as water depths may be too great to allow safe crossing. Rainy conditions look to continue into Saturday, with clearing on Sunday. Next week into Independence Day looks to be clear, with temperatures in the mid to upper 70s, Bryant said.last_img read more

EGM sales see RGB Internationals 3Q18 figures soar

Liverpool John Moores University receives living wage accreditation

first_imgLiverpool John Moores University (LJMU) has been accredited as a living wage employer by the Living Wage Foundation.The university, which employs around 2,500 members of staff, has committed to paying permanent employees and third-party contractors at least the living wage rate of £8.25 an hour.The voluntary rate is calculated according to the basic cost of living and is updated annually. It is distinct from the government’s national living wage rate of £7.20 an hour, which is mandatory for employees aged 25 and over.Professor Philip Vickerman, executive director to the vice chancellor for strategic initiatives and enhancements at LJMU, said: “This is a significant step for LJMU because becoming accredited as a living wage employer means that our staff have the opportunity to earn enough to provide for themselves and their families.“It is important for us as a large employer in the city to welcome the new hourly rate and encourage other organisations to do the same, especially in highlighting the benefits, which include boosting staff morale, increasing productivity and job fulfilment, and satisfying stakeholders that employees are always paid a fair wage.”last_img read more

Dan Sharman Taking employee share plans to a global workforce needs careful

first_imgAs part of a global benefits strategy, international organisations often want to expand their share plans to cover employees who are based overseas. Often, this is crucial to attract and retain key talent internationally and to achieve parity in remuneration packages across the global workforce.However, granting employees equity is a complex area, giving rise to a number of local legal issues. Each must be carefully considered as early as possible in order to avoid problems leading to costly errors for the employer and disappointment for the employee.Tax can make or break an employee share plan and its ability to provide a meaningful incentive for employees. In each jurisdiction, an organisation should take professional advice as to the tax implications of making equity awards, including whether there are any tax-planning opportunities available in that country.Other important considerations are whether the organisation or local employer has tax and/or social security withholding obligations, and whether there are any particular filing or reporting obligations.Employment and securities laws will vary from country to country, and should be investigated prior to expansion. The former includes issues such as whether works council or union consent is required, or whether the terms of the plan are likely to breach any discrimination laws; a common issue being how the treatment of retirees interacts with age discrimination laws.Securities laws can make operation of the plan difficult if not dealt with properly, and breach can lead to fines and even criminal sanctions. Key considerations include whether any consents are required to launch the plan, what communications can be made to employees, and whether any filings with the local securities authorities are necessary.The issues above are by no means an exhaustive list, so it is vital employers liaise with their professional advisors as early as possible in the proposed expansion process. Establishing a budget at the outset of the project, with a suitable buffer to deal with unexpected expenditure, can help control costs. Expanding into one country at a time may help keep things manageable, although it might increase costs overall if the project has multiple stops and starts.Dan Sharman is an associate at international law firm Bird and Birdlast_img read more

38 believe workplace pensions are the safest way to save for retirement

first_imgMore than a third (38%) of respondents aged under 40 years old or aged 40 and over who have not yet retired believe that a workplace pension scheme is the safest way to save for retirement in the period July 2016-December 2016, according to research by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).Its Early indicator estimates from the wealth and assets survey also found that 68% of respondents who have not yet retired cite an occupational or personal pension as an expected source of retirement income between July 2016 and December 2016. This compares to 62% in July 2014 to June 2016.The research also found:20% of respondents feel that workplace pension schemes are the retirement saving method that will make the most of their money in July 2016-December 2016, compared to 49% who cite property as the saving vehicle that will make the most of their money.15% of respondents aged under 60 years old who are not in receipt of a pension and are not currently contributing to a pension say they do not contribute to a pension because they do not know enough about pensions between July 2016 and December 2016. Other reasons for not saving into a pension include low income, they are not working or they are still in education (55%), and not being able to afford to contribute into a pension (29%).84% of employee respondents aged over 22 but under the state pension age are aware of automatic enrolment in July 2016-December 2016.18% of respondents aged 16 and over report that their decisions on pensions, savings and investments had been influenced by something in the wider world, for example the EU referendum, in July 2016-December 2016. This compares to 15% in July 2014 to June 2016.32% of respondents aged under 40 or aged over 40 but not yet retired have thought about how many years of retirement they might need to fund in July 2016-December 2016, compared to 16% of respondents aged 16 to 24 years old. Of the respondents who have thought about how many years of retirement they might need to fund, 37% expect to be retired for between 20 and 24 years in July 2016-December 2016.54% of male respondents under 65 years old and female respondents under 60 years old are fairly or very confident that their income in retirement will provide the standard of living that they hope for in July 2016 to December 2016.59% of respondents currently in work or those who are not retired but intend to work in the future expect to retire between 65 and 69 years old in July 2016 to December 2016.Nathan Long, senior pension analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown, said: “Confusion with pension planning is worryingly on the rise. Investing in property is seen as the best way of making the most of your money despite it being one of the least tax-efficient ways to invest. More people are now citing a lack of understanding as the reason why they are not in their workplace pension, even though auto-enrolment means most will not make any decisions whatsoever to join.“The tail end of the retirement journey also is starting to show signs of people expecting to work longer, but with more than a quarter of older people not properly planning their retirement the reality could be even more severe. As people live longer and the cost of social care rises, the likelihood of inheritances acting as an additional income in retirement falls.”last_img read more
