SAN JOSE, Antique– This capital town is planning to construct a sanitary landfill worth P20million near the old dumpsite area in Barangay Pantao. Starting thisMarch, the local government unit (LGU) will strictly implement its ordinance onsolid waste management wherein unsegregated garbage will not be collected,Untaran added. Recently,Josephine Maguad of the Provincial Environment Management Office said LGUs inthe province were unable to establish their sanitary landfill because itentails cost and their proposed sites could hardly pass the criteria based onthe environmental and geological assessments. “Putting up asanitary landfill really requires allocation,” added Maguad.(With a report from PNA/PN) “With strict wastesegregation by the households, we hope that half of the 16 tons of solid wasteswill be reduced,” Untaran said. “The old openregulated dumpsite in Pantao had already been there for decades,” Mayor ElmerUntaran said on Jan 10. He added otherLGUs could possibly have a cluster and establish a common sanitary landfill. Around 16 tons ofsolid wastes are disposed of daily in the open dumpsite, which is nearly full,he said. He added the fundwill come from the office of Antique Lone District Rep. Loren Legarda and theproject is expected to be finished within the year. Mayor Elmer Untaran of San Jose, Antique says the capital town will have its first sanitary landfill. PNA/ANNABEL CONSUELO PETINGLAY “The barangayswill take charge of collecting garbage from the households to the materialsrecovery facility (MRF) in every barangay,” he said, adding the five garbagetrucks of the LGU will collect the garbage from the MRF to the sanitarylandfill.
The defeat marked the team’s fourth straight loss and league-leading 12th shorthanded goal allowed. It was also Kessel’s fourth consecutive game without recording a point, as he last recorded a pair of assists in a Feb. 1 win over the Senators. His last goal came Jan. 30 in a victory over the Lightning.“I don’t know why I can’t get anything going,” Kessel said. “But one of these days, it will come.”Kessel, 31, is still having a solid season with 57 points through 55 games played. Phil Kessel can’t seem to climb out of his slump.The Penguins winger was candid with reporters following Saturday’s 5-4 loss to the Lightning, admitting he just hasn’t been himself lately.“I mean, I just can’t get anything going right now,” Kessel said, via The Athletic. “I’d say I’ve had some good games and some bad games since the break. But it hasn’t been good enough. I need to be better. Obviously, I need to be better.”
Facebook86Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Washington Department of Fish and WildlifeState shellfish managers have tentatively scheduled razor clam digs on ocean beaches for dates through April. “We have lots of razor clams on area beaches this year, and we’re releasing a tentative schedule to give people plenty of time to make plans to get out and enjoy them,” said Dan Ayres, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) coastal shellfish manager.Final approval of all scheduled openings will depend on whether results of marine toxin tests show the clams are safe to eat.WDFW typically announces whether a dig will go forward about a week before the opening, said Ayres.The tentative razor clam digs, along with low tides and beaches, are listed below.Digging is not allowed before noon for the March and early April digs where low tide occurs in the evening.March 6, Friday, 4:11 pm, -0.2 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksMarch 7, Saturday, 4:59 pm, -0.7 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, CopalisMarch 8, Sunday, 6:43 pm, -1.0 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksMarch 9, Monday, 7:25 pm, -1.0 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, CopalisMarch 10, Tuesday, 8:06 pm, -0.8 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksMarch 11, Wednesday, 8:46 pm, -0.2 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, CopalisMarch 20, Friday 5:27 pm, 0.4 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksMarch 21, Saturday, 6:07 pm, 0.4 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis (Ocean Shores Razor Clam Festival)March 22, Sunday, 6:41 pm, 0.4 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksMarch 23, Monday, 7:12 pm, 0.5 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, CopalisApril 3, Friday, 3:41 pm, 0.3 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, CopalisApril 4, Saturday, 4:37 pm, -0.1 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksApril 5, Sunday, 5:27 pm, -0.4 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, CopalisApril 6, Monday, 6:12 pm, 0.4 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksApril 7, Tuesday, 6:55 pm, -0.2 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, CopalisNo digging is allowed after noon for April digs — listed below — where low tide occurs in the morning.April 8, Wednesday, 7:26 am, -0.7 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksApril 9, Thursday, 8:14 am, -1.1 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, CopalisApril 10, Friday, 9:01 am, -1.3 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksApril 11, Saturday, 9:50 am, -1.1 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis (Long Beach Razor Clam Festival)April 12, Sunday, 10:42 am, -0.7 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksApril 13, Monday, 11:39 am, -0.2 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, CopalisApril 22, Wednesday, 7:08 am, 0.3 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, CopalisApril 23, Thursday, 7:41 am, 0.0 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksApril 24, Friday, 8:15 am, -0.3 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, CopalisApril 25, Saturday, 8:49 am, -0.1 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksApril 26, Sunday, 9:26 am, -0.3 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, CopalisApril 27, Monday, 10:07 am, -0.2 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksApril 28, Tuesday, 10:54 am, -0.1 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, CopalisApril 29, Wednesday, 11:48 am, 0.1 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksIn order to ensure conservation of clams for future generations, WDFW sets tentative razor clam seasons that are based on the results from an annual coast-wide razor clam stock assessment and by considering harvest to date. WDFW authorizes each dig independently after getting the results of marine toxin testing.Two razor clam digging weekends, in particular, should not be missed, said Ayres. “The Ocean Shores Razor Clam and Seafood Festival on March 21 and 22, and the Long Beach Razor Clam Festival on April 11 are long-running events that celebrate the unique contribution of razor clams to Washington’s culture and coastal communities.”All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach.Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license (starting at $9.70) to an annual combination fishing license, are available on WDFW’s website and from some 600 license vendors around the state.Ayres reminds razor clam diggers, that anyone gathering clams in April will need a new 2020 license to participate. Under state law, diggers at open beaches can take 15 razor clams per day and are required to keep the first 15 they dig. Each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container.“Abundant razor clam populations on beaches are allowing for more digging opportunity this year,” said Ayres. “But, it is important that razor clam diggers be sure to only dig where it is allowed.” Razor clam diggers can find detailed beach maps that indicate locations and local names for beaches on WDFW’s website.WDFW is the primary state agency tasked with preserving, protecting and perpetuating fish and wildlife and ecosystems, while providing sustainable fishing and hunting opportunities. WDFW razor clam digs support outdoor lifestyles and coastal economies.
Facebook209Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston CountyLetter to the Community: July 8, 2020Hello Thurston County! I am excited to be your new Health Officer. I moved up from California and I have been exploring the county on the weekends. I have loved being near mountains, the Puget Sound and forests. It has been wonderful to be in the middle of so much natural beauty. As a coffee person, I have enjoyed sampling incredible coffee in our area. In my spare time I have been taking urban walks and hikes, meeting my neighbors, sampling amazing local food, reading a lot and enjoying being in the Pacific Northwest. I am looking forward to working with all of you to keep Thurston County healthy!These are challenging times as we take on the COVID-19 pandemic together. The COVID-19 pandemic is a marathon, not a sprint, and I look forward to running it with you. We have seen our positive case numbers of COVID-19 increase over the past week. It is important to be vigilant as more businesses open and more people go back to work.In recent days, traveling and private gatherings with family and friends are common ways people are contracting COVID-19. If you must gather, outdoors is better than indoors. The advice for preventing COVID-19 remains the same: cover your cough, wash your hands, wear a mask and stay more than six feet from people who are not part of your household when possible. I am using digital means to keep up with friends and family, limiting my travel within Thurston County and taking the opportunity to explore close to home.As our cases rise, you may have the opportunity to meet one of our intrepid disease detectives. Our contact tracers and epidemiologists interview every person who has a positive COVID-19 test. Contact tracers try to determine how people got sick and if anyone else they encountered might be at risk of getting sick. It is really important to share the names of people with whom you have had close contact, meaning you have been closer than six feet for fifteen minutes or longer. This information is completely confidential. We only collect it so we can see who else might be sick and offer them resources. Our goal in contact tracing it to find out how people are getting sick and break the cycle.When we know someone has been exposed, we ask them to quarantine at home for 14 days while watching for symptoms of COVID-19. This is to prevent other people from getting sick. COVID-19 can be transmitted even before people develop symptoms and know they are sick. By staying home after an exposure to COVID-19, we are doing our part to not make the people around us sick.During the contract tracing process, one way we find out if people are having symptoms of COVID-19 is by using a technology tool called SARA. This tool sends a text message every day and offers people the opportunity to share whether they are experiencing concerning symptoms. If people develop symptoms, we can help find testing locations and make sure people have what they need during isolation and quarantine. Being able to connect by text messages allows us to help take care of more people who are at risk of becoming sick from COVID-19.The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented challenge. I am excited to be here in Thurston County and to be tackling this challenge with all of you. If we all work together, we can contain this virus and work toward a safe return to public life. This means staying home when you are sick, wearing a face covering when in public, washing your hands, covering your cough, and maintaining a distance of six feet from people outside your household. If you become sick or are concerned you may have been exposed, we can help. I am looking forward to contributing to our Thurston County community and meeting all of you from six feet away, wearing a face covering!Wishing you the best of health,Dimyana Abdelmalek, MD, MPHHealth Officer, Thurston County

While the upgraded app will not be immediately available, Apple is expected to approve the app soon. It will be available as a free upgrade for users who have already bought a previous version.

Bajaj Auto is all set to launch another 100cc bike to secure its number two position in the 2-wheeler market. The new bike would be the third 100cc offering from the automaker. According to the report published in a newspaper, the company is working on a 100cc version of the Boxer motorcycle , codenamed D-104, which is set to debut in November.Currently, Bajaj sells 100cc versions of the Platina and Discover motorcycles, but the new 100cc Boxer is likley to offer much more than other existing 100cc offerings. The report said the automaker plans to take the fight directly to Heros Passion and Splendor and Hondas Dream Yuga, with the new motorcycle. The company plans to price it at around Rs 40,000/-, which would also give its rivals a tough competition. The bike in its segment would reportedly be the most advanced with electric start, front disc brake, digital instrumentation and LED brake lights. In order to reduce weight, the new 100cc bike is likely to be made of fibre and plastic instead of steel to further enhance its performance and make it fuel efficient.
