Provide actual cost of trash disposalWhile remembering radio newscaster Paul Harvey, the residents and taxpayers of Montgomery County are waiting to hear, “The Rest of the Story.”A few years back, Montgomery County and Fulton County entered into an agreement whereby Montgomery County could ship its trash and refuse to the Fulton County landfill at a very respectable rate.GottaDo Contracting would do the haulage. One of the “common-sense” stipulations that Fulton County required was that Montgomery County not bring into the deal garbage from outside the county.Unable to resist a money-making scheme by doing just that, tens of thousands of tons of excess garbage went from Montgomery County to the Fulton County landfill. Why do immigrants here illegally come before Americans? Why are immigrants here illegally protected while Americans are killed by many who have been deported with criminal records?Why are these immigrants allowed to come here and overcrowd our schools, hurting their time with teachers that they need and deserve? This is extremely unfair to students and teachers.Why do immigrants in the country illegally receive welfare benefits, free medical, free food stamps, and housing at Americans’ expense?Every Democrat/liberal who supports open borders and letting all undocumented immigrants in should have their addresses and phone numbers published so they can stay with them. They should also have all fences taken down from their property and locks removed from houses.How many more Americans or people here legally have to die at the hands of undocumented immigrants? One is too many.The Left is so concerned with separation of kids from their families temporarily. Where is the concern for the permanent separation of those killed by immigrants here illegally? There is none. Attorneys general, governors and mayors are supposed to uphold laws. Why do they protect immigrants who are here illegally?Bonnie DeckerRotterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusCuomo calls for clarity on administering vaccine Eventually apparently Fulton County caught on to what was happening and shut down the deal with Montgomery County. Montgomery County had to find another home for its trash. It did, in the Seneca Meadows landfill, some 100 miles away. GottaDo Contracting was brought in to do the haulage.Here’s the rub. Montgomery County legislators and County Executive Matt Ossenfort are falling over themselves explaining the great deal they got to haul the trash. What they are not telling us is what it costs to dump the garbage in Seneca Meadows. The numbers posted in the newspapers are not the true cost of getting rid of our garbage.Give us the complete story, with all the numbers, so we can make a true evaluation as to what our so-called representatives are doing, or not doing in Fonda.Mr. Ossenfort, it’s time to come clean with Montgomery County’s Garbage-gate.Earl F. SpencerCanajoharie No special treatment for undocumentedWhy do Democrats and liberals hate America and Americans? Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionSeparatists just pandering to baseI was disheartened recently to see Sens. Jim Tedisco and Daphne Jordan pull out the fear and divisive Trump card by announcing it may be time to break up the great state of New York.Does this mean that if several states in the Midwest decided they don’t agree with the urban populations of the East and West coasts, they should be encouraged to separate from the Union and form a different country?This antic is sickening and a further way to divide us. These politicians know this separatist’s cry will not work economically, but are using it as a way to only pacify their base, not unite this state.As my beloved seventh-grade social studies teacher once told me: Stay engaged, stay involved, stay informed. That’s how a democracy works. It wasn’t too long ago when we had a Republican governor. But since, the party has been in disarray. And instead of reorganizing and getting qualified candidates to run, they revert to fear mongering, separatists’ antics. How disheartening and disappointing of my representatives.Aaron HullNiskayuna
The Commission had also called for the establishment of an executive board with permanent members, but this also failed to make it into the Council’s proposal. In addition, the Council scrapped from its position a provision for the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) – one of the three European financial supervisory agencies (ESAs) – to be allowed to disclose how individual occupational pension funds or insurers fare under sector stress tests. In a statement, the Council said its general approach ensured a “key role” for national regulators within the ESAs’ governance structure, adding that “no decision should be taken against the will of a majority of national supervisors”. EU member states have rejected proposals from the European Commission that would have extended the European pension regulator’s powers and introduced an industry levy to fund the bloc’s financial regulators.The EU Council today published its compromise agreement on proposals to reform the bloc’s financial supervision system, which crucially did not include Commission suggestions that had worried European occupational pension funds. The Council’s position would limit the extension of powers put forward by the Commission proposal, which was presented in September 2017. For example, the Commission had proposed the introduction of industry contributions to fund the EU’s finance watchdogs, but this did not feature in the Council’s proposal.A final version of the supervision reforms must be agreed between the Council, the Commission and the European Parliament, all of which have put forward their own version of the initial text. Source: European CouncilCommission vice-president Valdis Dombrovskis and Eugen-Orlando Teodorovici, Romanian public finance minister, at a press conference following a meeting of EU finance ministers on 12 FebruaryMatthies Verstegen, senior policy adviser at PensionsEurope, the Brussels-based European association of national pension fund bodies, said the Council had adopted a “sensible” approach.“Europe’s pensions landscape is very diverse, so we welcome the position that national supervisors should retain a strong role in EIOPA’s management structure,” he said.“We also think it’s better that the ESAs are funded through the EU budget and member states contributions than through fees from financial institutions. Pension funds are not directly supervised by the ESAs and therefore shouldn’t pay into their budgets.”PensionsEurope previously expressed concerns about the Commission’s proposals.At a press conference after a meeting of EU finance ministers today, Valdis Dombrovskis, Commission vice-president, said the compromise reached did not have “the same high level of ambition” as the Commission’s initial proposal, but it was “as good as it can get when we needed to compose with a number of diverging views”.Next stepsNegotiations between the European Parliament and the Council are set to begin this Thursday with the first trilogue.The Parliament’s economic and monetary affairs committee adopted its position, which is more aligned with the Commission’s proposal than the Council’s, last month.The Commission is keen for a political agreement to be reached before the European Parliament elections in May.

Its advanced, details are missing. It will be announced when the time comes. As it’s not yet official, we continue to have other offers. I want to keep good relations with these clubs too.Advertisement Loading… Lille president Gerard Lopez has revealed that they are still receiving offers for Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen amid reports of an imminent switch to Napoli. The 21-year-old has been one of the most talked-about players in the transfer market, with the Partenopei looking to acquire his services in a deal in the region of €60 – 80 million, as they look to boost the squad tutored by Gennaro Gattuso. Recently, Osimhen reportedly changed his agent because of the cordial relationship between Lopez and Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis, and didn’t want anything to stall the move to the San Paolo. The former Wolfsburg and Charleroi forward netted 18 goals in 38 competitive outings for Lille last campaign. “The player decided to change agents in the middle of the negotiations. We had to start all over again,” Lopez was quotted as saying to L’Equipe as reported by Le10Sport. “So, I manage their expectations. It is a transfer which is not linear. The market in France opened before closing [until August 15]. In Italy, the transfer window opens in September. So, you need a multitude of contracts to cover all eventualities.” Lopez went on to admit that Osimhen’s departure will force a shakeup in the team’s attack while the club is not known to buy established players, but rather prospects like the Super Eagles forward. As such, the Spanish businessman believes the club’s strong scouting network will come in handy. He also insists they have no excuse not to knock oil-rich Paris Saint-Germain off their perch and challenge for the Ligue 1 title, having narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification by just a single point and position. “His [Osimhen’s imminent] departure in itself, no [is no disaster]. But for the reconstruction of the attack line, yes,” Lopez continued. “There is an approach led by [Lille sporting director] Luis [Campos] who offers [Lille head coach] Christophe Galtier players.

Even if we are interested in a player, it is only in combination with others. It’s more complex than selling a player and then finding a replacement.“Strength is the system and the quality of our scouting process. We will have no excuse not to fight for the top of the table.“We don’t have a big budget to look elsewhere. We will remain humble and we will find talent.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享
The organisers of the annual Access Bank Lagos City Marathon on Wednesday said the hosting of the 42km race in 2021 was not under threat yet in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic.The Media Officer of the race, Kayode Thomas, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos. Thomas said he was optimistic that the race, which achieved a silver label this year, would not be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic that had limited a number of sport events worldwide.He said: “Next year’s marathon will go ahead as planned.“It is true that some marathons across the world have been cancelled, but some are going on as planned, just like Hamburg in Germany.“The Hamburg Marathon is one of the biggest in the world and it is coming up in September as planned, but because of restrictions in Germany, the organisers have scaled down the number of participants.“The number of runners for the race have been scaled down to 10,000 runners, but as the case is, Nigeria is better off in terms of COVID-19 pandemic compared to Germany in terms of outbreak. “What the organisers have put in place in Germany is social distancing and other protocols and also modifying the race in so many ways but the race will go on as planned.”Thomas said nothing would stop the planned 2021 edition of the marathon, but that the race could be modified to accommodate the fallouts from the COVID-19 pandemic.He added: “I don’t see anything stopping the 2021 Access Bank Lagos City Marathon.“May be there could be some adjustments.“We have a Technical Director in person of Yusuf Alli, who is conversant with the development of races all over the world. “So the Technical Department might also be in Hamburg.“They will also visit other races to observe what they are doing.“I am yet to envisage any problem with Nigeria’s race.“We should not forget that football has resumed across the Europe, but with some adjustments.RelatedPosts COVID-19: NCAA to revoke erring airlines licence over non-compliance FRSC to Schools: We’ll arrest, prosecute drivers who flout COVID-19 rules Sanwo-Olu: We’re committed to fulfilling promises to Lagosians “I think we will also follow same protocol for the 2021 marathon as well.”Tags: 2021 Access Bank Lagos City MarathonAccess BankCOVID-19threat
With central defender John O’Shea both suspended and injured for the first leg of the play-off in Zenica on Friday evening, there is at least one place up for grabs in Martin O’Neill’s rearguard with Keogh, Marc Wilson and Ciaran Clark seemingly battling it out for the starting berths. But if the 29-year-old Derby man gets the nod, he insists he will look forward to the task of keeping the Manchester City frontman, currently on loan at Roma, at bay. Asked to assess the threat posed by Dzeko, Keogh said: “He’s got a bit of everything. “He’s tall and he’s deceptively quick, he’s got a nice touch – his all-round game is something that you have to watch out for. He’s one of those where you think he is probably going to head it, but he jumps up and brings it down on his chest. “It’s little things like that you have got to be aware of. He tries to link the play, so he is a player that is a big threat for them. “But as a team we will do our homework on them and not just him, the team in general. But I am ready to play and I want to play against the best players. He’s certainly up there, so it would be a great challenge.” However, Keogh and his team-mates are well aware that Dzeko is not Bosnia’s only threat, with Roma team-mate Miralem Pjanic a dead-ball specialist who could hurt them in a variety of situations. Keogh said: “Not giving away cheap free-kicks would be helpful. When you have got players who have quality from set-plays it obviously is a danger, so we have to not give away any cheap free-kicks and give them an opportunity to score or to put it into our box.” O’Neill’s men head for Zenica boosted by last month’s qualifier victory over world champions Germany and confident they have what it takes to make it to France next summer. Keogh said: “When you beat such a quality team as Germany it does give you confidence that you can compete with the best countries in the world, so going into a big game we can draw a lot of confidence from that.” Press Association Richard Keogh is relishing the chance to do battle with Bosnia-Herzegovina striker Edin Dzeko as the Republic of Ireland set their sights on the Euro 2016 finals.

CHADWICK Walton’s fighting half-century went in vain as St Kitts and Nevis Patriots opened their Caribbean Premier League campaign with a four-wicket win over Guyana Amazon Warriors, in Florida on Saturday ..Walton played a lone hand for the second half of the Warriors’ innings but could only take his side to a moderate 123 for 7 in their allotted quota. Patriots suffered a top-order collapse in reply but Carlos Brathwaite revived the hopes and Jonathan Carter helped the team get across the line with an over to spare.Put in to bat first, Warriors got off to a flying start courtesy skipper Martin Guptill’s stroke-filled 23 off just 14. Samuel Badree put an end to the early fireworks by taking out the skipper, but Walton revived the innings by joining hands with Pakistan batsman Babar Azam for a 45-run partnership for the second wicket – their best in the night.Azam, however, contributed a rather sedate 21 off 30 before Brathwaite provided the breakthrough. The slide began there and Warriors lost as many as six wickets for another 46 runs that robbed them off the momentum to score freely.Nearly half of their 123 came off Walton’s bat. The opener was the fifth man dismissed off the first ball of the 20th over but by then, a middle-order failure ensured that Warriors had to be content with a sub par score. Hasan Ali and Sheldon Cottrell bagged two wickets apiece.In a seemingly easy chase, however, Patriots were troubled early as Steven Jacobs and Rayad Emrit sparked a top-order collapse while defending a paltry 123. Sohail Tanvir sent down a tight first over and the pressure consumed opener Evin Lewis off Jacobs’s first ball of the day. Chris Gayle and Mohammed Hafeez provided some fireworks but the duo was sent back by Emrit in quick succession to add to Patriots’ woes.That soon became 57 for 5 after 10.4 overs as wicketkeeper-batsman Devon Thomas was run out cheaply and Brandon King became Jacobs’s second victim. The chase seemed all but over but Brathwaite came to their rescue with a timely reminder of his six-hitting abilities.He went after Permaul, hitting him for three sixes in successive overs to narrow down the gap between the asking rate and their run rate. Next up, he destroyed Emrit’s impressive figures by scoring back to back boundaries to bring the equation down to 19 off the final four overs before getting out to Tanvir.However, Carter, who had settled in by then, didn’t let all of Brathwaite’s hard work go down the drain. He took bare minimum risk in his 30-ball 29 but helped the team off to a winning start by polishing off the chase in the penultimate over.Brief scores: Guyana Amazon Warriors 123/7 in 20 overs (Chadwick Walton 60; Hasan Ali 2-19, Sheldon Cottrell 2-18) lost to St Kitts and Nevis Patriots 124/6 in 19 overs (Carlos Brathwaite 31, Jonathan Carter 29*; Ryad Emrit 2-14, Steven Jacobs 2-23) by four wickets.
