Indiana Pork and Indiana Soybean Partner with Fair Oaks

first_imgStatewide— Indiana Pork and the Indiana Soybean Alliance are excited to announce a partnership to allow more school-aged children to visit Fair Oaks Farms.  Both groups have partnered to provide discounts to school field trips and to provide transportation grants for their travel to and from Fair Oaks. “The partnership with Indiana Soybean Alliance and Indiana Pork has made it possible for more educators and future generations to learn about modern agriculture and where food comes from,” said Julie Basich, Chief Operating Officer for Fair Oaks Farms. “Fair Oaks Farms is grateful for this opportunity and has worked hard to provide STEM programs that the educators not only feel good about, but are excited to share with their students and families.  Less than 2% of the population is involved in agriculture, so being able to make these discussions more accessible to our youth is crucial in bridging that gap.” The partnership allows a $3 discount for tours of Fair Oaks.  School groups can also apply for transportation grants to help with busing costs.last_img read more

DeSantis Expands Empowerment Scholarship, Provides COVID Update

first_imgFlorida Gov. Ron DeSantis says he wants children from the state’s low-income backgrounds to have all the tools they need to succeed in school and in life.Speaking at Cristo Rey Tampa Salesian High School in Tampa on Thursday, the governor signed a bill that expands Florida’s Family Empowerment Scholarship.The scholarship is intended to help children from low-income and working class families get into the schools that best fit their needs.“If we in the state of Florida can say, we’re doing everything we can to make sure that any child, regardless of income, regardless of income status, regardless of race and ethnicity, has tools to be able to make the most of the God-given talent,” DeSantis said.The governor added that the expansion of the initiative will essentially clear the wait list for the scholarship, and will end up helping around 30,000 students in the state annually.“We believed that we wanted those kids off the wait list,” DeSantis explained. “We wanted to be able to empower parents. Many of them are low-income parents. Many of them are single mothers.” On Wednesday, DeSantis also signed a $500 million education funding bill that increases the minimum salary for public and charter school teachers.“That will, one, reward teachers who are doing a good job,” DeSantis said while signing that legislation. “It’ll also help us continue to recruit people into the profession.”DeSantis also provided an update on Thursday regarding the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, again asking Floridians to avoid crowded spaces and close quarters.“Outdoors in Florida is better than the air conditioning in terms of the virus,” DeSantis said, adding that many COVID-19 outbreaks have been traced back to multi-generational homes. “The spread outdoors is minimal. If you’re cooped up inside, you just tend to have more spread.”According to the latest numbers from the Florida Department of Health, there are 114,018 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the state, an increase of 5,004 cases from Wednesday.last_img read more

Gbarpolu Citizens Speak about Challenges in Their County

first_imgSeveral citizens of Gbarpolu County have expressed dissatisfaction over some situations they are faced with in the county.They made their plights known over the weekend when they attended the World Press Freedom Day celebrated in Bopolu, capital city of Gbarpolu County. The World Press Freedom Day was celebrated in Bopolu City by the Press Union of Liberia (PUL).Challenges, according to Gbarpolu citizens, include lack of access to save drinking water, inadequate education and health facilities, no farm-to-market roads, lack of electricity, amongst others.Forty-two-year old Milton K. Dwana, a resident of Bopolu City hoped that the event will make the focus of the Liberian Government and its development partners to shift towards their county; “so that they can help us solve our problems.”Dwana said their conditions have not changed for the better, over the years, because not too many events are held in the county to attract journalist, health workers, government officials and private institutions.“Our voices must be heard. I want to thank the PUL because at least journalists are here to see what we go through. We lack many things here. Our radio station does not reach far for the government to hear us. Thank God that the World Freedom Day celebration has attracted journalists here so that they will help report on our challenges,” he explained.He furthered stated that because of bad roads, they are faced with health problems and even educational challenges, not excluding their farms-to-market roads, which are badly deplorable.“We only have one school here, and there are so many children attending the school. The school is not expensive so the children are too many for the little sitting.”“We also don’t good drinking water in our city. We hope that our voices will be heard by the government.Also speaking to this paper, Dennis Tewee, a 24-year old recharged cards seller, called on the government of Liberia to constantly sent representatives there to know what the community lacks.“I sell my scratch cards before I am able to feed my parents on a daily. Nobody knows the things that happen here because our government officials hardly come around to check on us. The government has forgotten to know that Montserrado, Bassa, Margibi and Bong are not only Liberia,” he said.Tewee also called on journalists to always visit Gbarpolu County.“If we see two or three journalist here for two days, almost six months will pass before we see another group of journalists. The press is our only means to speak to our government, so we are begging them to always come around.”Also speaking to the Observer, 41-year-old Sianeh Talley, a market woman, stressed that market women are affected greatly because of the bad roads. She said because of very bad roads, they (market women) cannot get their goods to the market on time.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
