The St. Johns River Water Management District provided $231,254 for the project, which compliments other reclaimed water projects in the city.“We applaud the city for embracing the use of reclaimed water for irrigation,” said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle. “We’re proud to be a funding partner on this project as we work together to ensure sustainable use of Florida’s water.”The water main extension plays an integral part in the city’s plans for future storage and distribution of water supplies, which includes reducing the use of drinking water for irrigation. Increasing access to reclaimed water will reduce dependence on groundwater from Upper Floridan aquifer wells while also assisting in the enhancement of spring flows in the Wekiva Basin.The installed reclaimed water mains begin at the intersection of Jason Dwelley Parkway, continue west along Kelly Park Road, and terminate at the intersection of Golden Gem Road and Kelly Park Road.The total construction cost is $1.4 million.

‘Afghanistan Papers’ release stirs protest from U.S. war veterans

first_imgOn Dec. 9, 2019, the Washington Post released an investigative report entitled “The Afghanistan Papers: A Secret History of the War.” The report was based on a review of hundreds of written and audio interviews conducted by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR). Those interviewed included military officers, government officials and private contractors, though most of them were not identified. The interviews were released only after a three-year legal battle in federal courts.Like the Pentagon Papers, which were a Defense Department-funded, top-secret history of the Vietnam War leaked to the public in 1971, “The Afghanistan Papers” provide clear evidence that successive U.S. administrations — G.W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump’s — have consistently lied to the U.S. people since the day the war began Oct. 7, 2001.Within days of “The Afghanistan Papers” release, anti-war military veterans from two organizations that have worked closely with each other over the years, Veterans For Peace and About Face: Veterans Against the War, issued the following statement written by Afghanistan War veterans.  Veterans demand accountability for Afghanistan PapersThe release of the Afghanistan Papers this week has laid out in clear detail the failed policy and the catastrophic level of malfeasance that reach the highest levels of the U.S. government. Every level of government bears responsibility for misleading the American public and for creating the conditions in which an unchecked military operates without accountability.The Afghanistan Papers are filled with over 300 people detailing the systematic failure of the military to take any responsibility and blaming the “corruption” of the Afghanistan government, all the while revealing the massive corruption and lies that the U.S. is perpetuating. While military commanders bemoaned Afghan leaders enriching themselves off [U.S.] tax dollars, those selfsame commanders were climbing government ranks, earning promotions for promoting endless war.Soldiers, contractors and veterans were routinely marginalized or persecuted in order to maintain the status quo in Afghanistan, up to and including the prosecution of Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning for their efforts. The integrity of those heroes were questioned, while the lies were glorified as truth by a complicit media and government agencies.Last year the U.S. war on Afghanistan killed more civilians than [in] any previous year. Every single lie detailed in the #AfghanistanPapers and every single year this went on meant overwhelming consequences for families and individuals in Afghanistan, many who are already living in devastating poverty. The U.S. military has destroyed countless villages and continues to create an atmosphere of fear and hatred with covert drone operations that kill thousands of innocent people.Furthermore, three days after these documents were released, proving three different administrations lied to the public and spent years covering up mismanagement, abuse and massive waste, Congress voted to pass the largest National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in history, funneling $733 billion to an already bloated military budget. As veterans who have served in these wars and past wars, we are exasperated by leaders [who] lie to us and lack the moral courage to do anything about it, even when there is proof. We demand accountability in real and tangible ways. We are tired of seeing headlines that only result in a congressional member’s outraged tweet, statements on the campaign trail and slick TV spots, while nothing changes. We demand real accountability: Immediate withdrawal of all U.S. troops; The military IMMEDIATELY release all 300 names of those quoted in the Afghanistan Papers; Congressional hearings that include perjury trials for all those officials who knowingly lied in official congressional testimony, including closed door session of the Armed Forces Committee; A special congressional committee to investigate fraud, waste, abuse and mismanagement for the war in Afghanistan; A congressional tribunal allowing Afghanistan veterans to testify about their experience; Repeal of the AUMF (Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists) — which includes any subsequent AUMF to have a sunset clause; Recognition of Moral Injury as a legitimate diagnosis; and Reparations to each Afghanistan family who has lost a family member.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

[Breaking]”Public Places Cannot Be Occupied Indefinitely”: Supreme Court On Shaheen Bagh Protests

What Started out as a protest caused inconvenience to commuters,” said the top court while holding in a batch of petitions pertaining to a road blockade at Shaheen Bagh in Delhi by protesters who were opposing the Citizenship Amendment Act.The court also pulled up the administration and its inability to clear encroachments and obstructions, waiting on the judicial orders for doing so, adding that it was the laxity of the administration that warranted intervention of the court.”In what manner the administration should act is their responsibility and should not hide behind court orders to carry out administrative functions. Responsibility of the respondent parties to take suitable action but such actions should produce suitable result. The court adjudicates legality of action and are not meant to give shoulder to administration. Unfortunately there was no action by administration and thus our intervention,” Supreme Court said.On September 21, the Top Court had reserved its judgment on the aspect of “the need to balance the right to protest with the right of mobility by other people”.Even though the road blockade issue in Shaheen Bagh that top court was seized of was rendered infructuous in light of the covid19 induced lockdown, the court had remarked that it shall deliver a verdict on the issue of Right to Protest Vs. The Right to Mobility.The petition by Advocate Amit Sahni was filed in January seeking to remove the protests against CAA-NRC at Shaheen Bagh. The petitioner complained that the protests were blocking the roads, affecting the right of free movement of the public.Though the protesters vacated the site in March with the onset of COVID-19 pandemic, the top court proceeded to hear the matter on the larger issue of balancing the right to protest with the right to free movement of people. During the hearing on September 21, Justice S K Kaul had remarked: “There cannot be a universal policy. In a parliamentary democracy, there is an avenue of debate. The only issue is in what manner and where .. and for how long and how to balance it.”At this juncture, Justice Bose had stated that the Right to protest has to be balanced with the right of the people to use a public road. For a long period of time, a public road was blocked. “What about this right to use the road?”Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had argued that the Right to Protest was a fundamental right, albeit with reasonable restrictions.The petitioner had first approached the Delhi High Court, which disposed it of directing the Central Government to consider his greivances as a representation. Aggrieved by the refusal of the High Court to pass directions to clear the protest site, the petitioner filed Special Leave Petition in the SC.In January, a bench of Justices SK Kaul & KM Joseph had issued notice on the petition.”There cannot be indefinite protests in a common area. If everybody starts protesting everywhere, what will happen?” the bench had remarked.The bench comprising Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph had then orally observed that protests at public ways “must cease”.The protests, largely led by women, started in the form of sit-in at Shaheen Bagh since December 15, 2019 against the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019 and the proposal to introduce nationwide National Register of Citizens. On February 17, the SC appointed Senior Advocate Sanjay Hegde and Advocate Sadhana Ramachandran as interlocutors to hold talks with the Shaheen Bagh protesters regarding the opening up of roads closed due to the protests.After the intervention of interlocutors, the protesters cleared a section of the protest site to open the road from Jamia to Noida in Uttar Pradesh and Faridabad in Haryana.On March 24, the Delhi police removed the structures at the protest site, after it was vacated by the protesters on account of the COVID-19 restrictions.The protesters took objection to the police action, and submitted a statement before the SC through the interlocutors, complaining that the police action was high-handed and ought to have been avoided when the matter was sub-judice.Next Storylast_img read more

Shot on location in Cornwall the programme has propelled the scenic county into the international limelight with tourists visiting from around the world. Visit Cornwall found that 13 per cent of visitors cited the BBC programme as the key reason for coming to the region.Cornwall is also becoming increasingly popular with retirees. In the latest report from Cornwall Council, a third of the region’s population is will be aged 65 or over by 2036. This year The Sunday Times declared the Cornish town of Falmouth was one of the top five best places to live in the South West.The ‘Poldark effect’ has prompted a rise in enquiries for retirement rentals since it first aired in 2015, according to Jamie Turnbull, Business Director of Girlings Retirement Rentals, who expects the next few weeks to be busy again.Jamie says, “We’ve noticed an increase in people enquiring about our retirement rental properties in Cornwall since the series began.
