He has led the Jacksonville-based diocese since 2004 and will reach the church’s mandatory retirement age of 72 in 2023.“The 178th convention of The Episcopal Diocese of Florida offers gratitude to God for the leadership of God’s servant Samuel Johnson Howard as its Eighth Bishop Diocesan,” the Standing Committee said in its resolution initiating the search for a bishop coadjutor, who would be installed as bishop diocesan after Howard retires.The search committee is scheduled to begin accepting nominations for bishop coadjutor by this fall, with an election in summer 2022 and consecration by Nov. 5, 2022.Howard, who previously served as vicar of Trinity Church Wall Street in New York, is known as one of the more theologically conservative bishops in The Episcopal Church. Leading up to the 79th General Convention in 2018, he was one of eight bishops who refused to allow same-sex couples to marry using church-approved trial rites.Howard opposed but ultimately accepted General Convention’s compromise resolution that year, which was intended to accommodate couples without requiring Howard and other conservative bishops to act contrary to their theological beliefs about marriage. In most cases, those bishops chose to delegate pastoral oversight to other bishops.

All Blacks vs England highlights from Christchurch

first_imgSunday Jun 22, 2008 All Blacks vs England highlights from Christchurch In their second clash in two weeks, England and New Zealand met once again, each with their own points to prove. Though both teams had plenty of opportunities to score, it was New Zealand’s precision and execution that saw the All Blacks come out on top of with a convincing 44-12 score line.Poor finishing from Tom Varndell and an unfortunate dropped ball from Matthew Tait saw a guaranteed 10 points slip through England’s grasp in the first forty minutes of the match. Defensively, once again, England struggled to contain the likes of Daniel Carter (who managed an individual haul of 22 points on the night), Ma’a Nonu and debutant Richard Kahui in the midfield.Problems for England but not so for the All Blacks, managing five tries this week (one more than last week) and demonstrating why they have the reputation as being the most clinical rugby team in the world, even after not taking all of the chances presented to them. Overall, they were simply too good for the opposition on the night, and despite being physically tested for two weeks, take the series 2-0 without too much trouble.England now head home with a lot to think about, and for a well earned rest, while New Zealand goes on to the 2008 Tri-Nations with the enduring pain of 2007 finally starting to fade away.

New fire and police training center opens in Fort Worth

first_imgJamie Manninghttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jamie-manning/ Twitter Linkedin ReddIt printMembers of the Fort Worth community came together on Thursday to celebrate the grand opening of the Bob Bolen Public Safety Complex.The new facility, located at 505 W Felix St., includes modern technology and advanced training environments for both the police and fire departments.“Our previous facility was built many years ago,” Fire Chief Rudy Jackson said. “Many of the things that we use to train were out-of-date.”Finding a new location was also necessary because of the Trinity River Vision project planning to take over some of the area where the old facility was located.“We needed a facility that not only fits our needs today, but leaves expansion room for tomorrow,” interim Chief of Police Rhonda Robertson said.The project was $97.4 million and funded by Fort Worth taxpayers. The mayor said the complex is an investment for the city.“The facility will benefit the Fort Worth community by building the best trained public safety,” Mayor Betsy Price said. “If a citizen is in need, they will get the best of the best.”The 500,000 square feet of indoor training space was repurposed from two pre-World War II warehouses, which resulted in significant financial savings.“The history is very important to know,” Price said.All of the original wood has been reclaimed to preserve the building’s history.When deciding what to name the new complex, the city council’s vote was unanimous.“Former Mayor Bob Bolen touched so many lives in this city and really got us to where we are today,” Price said. “There was no one better to name it after.”Bolen was Fort Worth’s longest-serving mayor from 1982-1991. He then went on to work at TCU as the senior advisor to the chancellor until he died Jan. 6, 2014.“Bob Bolen always did all he could to support public safety and this facility does just that,” Robertson said. “It helps us modernize, enhance and expand our training to educate and support the firefighters and police officers of Fort Worth.” Linkedin Jamie Manninghttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jamie-manning/ Sundance Square’s Christmas tree lighting brings the spirit of giving Facebook Jamie Manning Facebook Twitter Jamie Manninghttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jamie-manning/ ReddIt The State Fair of Texas opens for the season Humane Society of North Texas raises money in annual “Trick or Trot” Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Junior League of Fort Worth hosts annual holiday gift market Previous articleDylan Thomas dominates early in the seasonNext articleQ & A with Bob Schieffer Jamie Manning RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR + posts Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Jamie Manninghttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jamie-manning/last_img read more

Limerick Chamber slams rates rise proposal

first_imgLimerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Facebook Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival WhatsApp Limerick Chamber chief executive Dr James RingLimerick Chamber has expressed its outright opposition to a proposed 4.5 per cent increase in commercial rates for 2016 by Limerick City and County council.Chamber chief executive Dr. James Ring said the local authority needed to balance its budget and stop looking to businesses to plug the gap.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Expenditure needs to be reduced and a broader income base needs to be developed in City Hall. A rates increase merely seeks to increase income from a group that is already stretched to the limit.“The proposal to increase rates by 4.5 per cent will extract an addition €2.25 million from businesses who already give the local authority almost €60 million a year, which is 35 per cent of the council’s overall income” he said.“It is counter-intuitive to promote Limerick as ‘open for businesses with a ‘can-do’ attitude yet increase commercial rates to bleed more money from businesses. Ultimately we must enable businesses, both large and small, to create employment and continue to support the economic vibrancy of the region.“Limerick Chamber calls on all councillors to think of their constituents and the businesses that provide and generate employment for them when they vote on this proposal on Friday, jobs will inevitably be lost with a rates increase.“The proposed rates increase sends a message that the local authority see businesses as a source of additional income.“Limerick Chamber believes commercial rates should be index linked and at the moment, in a period of zero inflation, a 4.5 per cent rates increase cannot be justified. Revisit this issue in 12 months and allow businesses to get back on their feet and get people back into employment”, Dr Ring concluded.

Contributor Network, Dallas Home Improvement magazine, and the Dallas Morning News. He has written four non-fiction sports books, the latest of which, The Life of Coach Chuck Curtis, was published by the TCU Press in December 2014. A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. center_img One week after a U.S. Federal Court of Claims Judge ruled that his company’s lawsuit against the government over its use of GSE profits could continue, Fairholme Funds CEO Bruce Berkowitz addressed investors on a conference call Tuesday morning, telling them that his company, one of the GSEs’ biggest investors, has made “considerable progress” in its lawsuit against the government.Also on Tuesday, a U.S. District Judge in Iowa dismissed a suit filed by Continental Western Insurance Company similar to the one filed by Miami-based Fairholme Funds over the sweeping of GSE profits into the U.S. Department of Treasury. The judge in the Iowa case cited last year’s decision by Judge Royce Lamberth in the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia which dismissed the Fairholme suit and a similar complaint filed by Perry Capital.On Tuesday morning, Berkowitz expressed optimism about Fairholme’s lawsuit, which was filed in 2013 and revived by Judge Margaret Sweeney last week in the U.S. Federal Court of Claims despite Lamberth’s dismissal of the case last September in the D.C. District Court.”We’ve had our ups and downs, but we are making considerable progress in the Federal Court of Claims,” Berkowitz said. “The judge will decline the Justice Department’s motion to stay the case despite the government’s purposeful delays. Discovery is ongoing. Our lawyers have reviewed 400,000 pages of documents. Depositions will soon begin.”Berkowitz reiterated in the conference call that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are “essential” and “they have no substitutes” because of their role in the housing industry, which includes offering $7 trillion in liquidity to the U.S. mortgage market since 2009.”If you want to stimulate the national economy in tough times, start with the housing sector,” Berkowitz said. “It’s roughly 23 percent of GDP. There’s nobody better to prime that pump than Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.”The GSEs have been under conservatorship of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) since September 2008, at which time they needed a government bailout totaling $188 billion to stay afloat. They have since returned to profitability and are predicted to earn about $21 billion a year for the foreseeable future, according to Berkowitz.Under the terms of the bailout, the government acquired 80 percent of the GSEs’ common stock and a 10 percent dividend each year through senior preferred shares. Treasury amended the agreement in August 2012, however, and required that all GSE profits be swept into Treasury.Berkowitz likened the amending of the bailout terms to a farmer whose farm was successful for decades, but when a drought came, was forced to accept an offer from a wealthy neighbor who was willing to loan the farmer money to keep the farm going. The deal he negotiated was tough, however – the farmer pays the neighbor 10 percent interest per year on his investment and gives him 80 percent ownership in the farm. Years later, when the farm conditions are better and the farm returns to profitability, the wealthy neighbor visits the farm and sees it flourishing – then changes the terms of the agreement, requiring the farmer to pay him 100 percent of the farm’s profits from that point forward.”It seems far-fetched, but this is precisely what has happened to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac at the hands of the U.S. Treasury,” Berkowitz said. “Some call it expropriation, others call it a de facto nationalization. Either way, it’s illegal and unfathomable. This is America. We’re not in Venezuela and it’s not the Soviet Union.”A spokesman for Treasury declined to comment on the Fairholme suit, and the Department of Justice was not immediately available for comment. The government’s position is that Treasury did not directly affect and control FHFA as conservator of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and that the amending of the bailout terms was not illegal but rather “imposed a so-called net sweep,” according to Berkowitz.Berkowitz remained positive in the conference call about his company’s future relationship with the GSEs.”At Fairholme, we believe in America,” he said. “We don’t bet against America. Fannie and Freddie are two of the most valuable companies we have in America. We own them, we own them at cheap prices, and we look forward to staying invested in them for a very long period of time.” Subscribe Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Fairholme Funds Fannie Mae Freddie Mac GSEs Lawsuits 2015-02-03 Brian Honea Tagged with: Fairholme Funds Fannie Mae Freddie Mac GSEs Lawsuits Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Related Articles About Author: Brian Honea Sign up for DS News Daily Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Share Savelast_img read more
