While Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan’s development proposals are in Downtown, Jaguars and Iguana Investments Florida LLC are in talks with the Greater Jacksonville Agricultural Fair board to purchase fairs next to the stadium.

The Jaguars are building a Four Seasons anchored hotel development in Shipyards and a football performance center near TIAA Bank Field.

The fair is working with the city to possibly move to the Jacksonville Equestrian Center in West Jacksonville, the city’s Chief Administrative Officer Brian Hughes said in June.

There’s $ 15 million in the city’s 2021-22 fiscal year budget to help shift Downtown’s fair shows.

Jaguars President Mark Lamping said what happens on the property is “critically important” to Jaguars operations because it provides 800 parking spaces on game day.

He said the fair area transfer will improve the position for both the Jaguars and at the fair.

“I think the fair will be a much superior experience for their customers by moving to a better -designed fair dock,” Lamping said.

If the Jaguars take control of the Downtown property, Lamping said the organization will double the property’s parking capacity to 1,600 spaces.

“As far as the long -term plan goes, you know, tell me how everything will develop around Jacksonville and I’ll give you the answer,” Lamping said.

Grand Craft, a custom boat manufacturer from Michigan, plans to move its operations to Genoa City (Submitted / The Report).

The move of Grand Craft from Michigan to Genoa City

State officials announced last week that Grand Craft Boats LLC, a manufacturer of custom mahogany watercraft, will move its headquarters and production operations from Holland, Michigan to Genoa City.

Governor Tony Evers, who jointly announced the move to Wisconsin Economic Development on Oct. 7, said the latest business is a welcome addition to the state.

“Wisconsin’s thriving manufacturing industry and workers around the world continue to attract businesses from around the world,” Evers said.

“We are excited that Grand Craft has decided to move to Wisconsin. The company has joined a long list of exceptional crafts and manufacturing in our state and is sure they will be a strong addition to our state economy and the southeastern community. Wisconsin. ”

Patrick Gallagher, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Grand Craft, and Rose Gallagher, Grand Craft Executive Vice President, got the business in February 2021.

Grand Craft serves the luxury boat segment, combining old-world artisanness with advanced manufacturing processes, up-to-date functionality, and technical innovation.

Grand Craft will lease a 20,300 -square -foot facility located at 1021 Williams Road in Genoa City, which will serve as the company’s headquarters and house its production operations. Grand Craft expects to employ 20 workers in Genoa City over three years.

“Wisconsin is well -suited for Grand Craft. We’re particularly attracted to the strong workforce, as well as the business climate that values ​​and encourages manufacturers like us,” Gallagher said.

“Our products are a perfect match for Wisconsin’s deep tradition of lake recreation and outdoor fun. We’re excited to continue building our business here.”

WEDC supports the project by authorizing up to $ 125,000 in state income tax credits over the next three years.

The true amount of tax credits that Grand Craft will receive depends on the number of jobs created and the capital invested in the project.

“We are excited that Grand Craft will soon be making beautiful boats in Wisconsin,” said WEDC Secretary and CEO Missy Hughes. “The company’s decision to move here is another example of how Wisconsin attracts manufacturers of innovative, best -class products because of skilled workers, strong communities, and outstanding manufacturing infrastructure.”

Grand Craft is receiving a warm welcome from local government and economic development officials.

“The recreation on Lake Geneva is a draw of the whole world, and the area is full of other beautiful lakes,” said Walworth County Economic Development Alliance Executive Director Derek D’Auria. “The area also has a deep manufacturing base and a leading technical college. We’re excited the company has selected Walworth County to locate its operations and headquarters.”

The Milwaukee 7 (M-7) regional economic development organization also worked to attract Grand Craft to Wisconsin.

“Grand Craft is exactly the kind of company that thrived in southeastern Wisconsin,” said M-7 Executive Director Jim Paetsch. “We have a strong and diverse regional economy that continues to add new companies and investments. We welcome Grand Craft and look forward to supporting its growth plans in the coming years.”

Review: Don’t you love the idea of ​​serendipity presenting an affordable housing solution for all families?

Precisely what happens when business development engineer Robin Doyle and retail manager Jeff Hirawani shop for a shed to be placed on some land they own taki on the Kāpiti Coast.

To find a massive villa along with the shed, make a “ridiculous” offer of $ 50,000 (via text) for the lot and get it. “We were almost dancing around our little house,” Jeff said.

NEW: Jeff (left), Rob and Clarke Gayford look at the old villa in the area.  They bought a five-bedroom villa and the shed for $ 50k.

NEW: Jeff (left), Rob and Clarke Gayford look at the old villa in the area. They bought a five-bedroom villa and the shed for $ 50k.

They invite their parents to come and live with them. Robin’s parents will live in the current children’s cottage on the ground, and Jeff’s mother will live in another small annex – “the east wing of the property”.

* Making love: Moving into a massive villa is ‘absolute madness’

And that’s not all. The children, who have been together for seven years, have a mixed family with five children, and they want to create a shelter floor for their family.

And they said they would do the Sunday barbecue, just as their parents would do for them as children. “We’re going to make a tradition again,” Jeff said.

What could be better?  A house and land for Rob and Jeff everything, pictured here on the tack ??  taki beach.

What could be better? A house and land for Rob and Jeff everything, pictured here on the tack ?? taki beach.

The pair already know the 100-year-old villa and admire it from afar. And then they looked inside: “We just opened the door and went to‘ woah ’,” Jeff said.

The house has a large stud, large living room, five bedrooms and a new kitchen. But it needed a makeover, and the boys, with good DIY skills, decided to do it before moving house, which could be the first – still need to be split in half for the move.

Their large land will happily fit in the house along with the other two homes for the parents. But there is a proviso – it is on a flood plain and the house needs to be raised 1.8m above ground level. But the outlook should improve.

The land is also significant for Rob – formerly owned by his aunt, who has a homestead here.

The house was divided into two halves, and the roof was removed before it was set.  Everyone is worried about bad clouds.

Clarke Gayford helps them strip off the exterior paint in preparation for the move, and clearly hot work. He also examines the little blue little house they currently live in, which will be the home of Robin’s parents. Gayford wasn’t bothered with the exterior color, which we gathered happened by accident (how does it happen?), But he said the interior was “genius”.

It was amazing to see all the work the two kids put into the restoration. We saw them pull out a decaying extension added in the ’60s or’ 70s, showing how well the original house lasted.

We love the way Gayford finds a bit of history surrounding the house. He keeps track of the original family members who lived in the house. They rejoice that it will not go away and be restored to its former glory.

The roof and supports are raised to be delivered separately.

Jeff called it “The Duke” because it looked so beautiful, but it was known as Te Moana locally, and that’s what Gayford calls it.

The local story said that the owner fancied the second wife, who was half his age. To court him, he had to pay for a trip to London. Apparently, he paid for separate cabins, “the whole work”, Gayford said. “By the end of it, the cabins are one.”

After working right away on Christmas break, it’s time for the move. Paul Britton of Britton’s Housemovers is overseeing the project, which will be in four parts – two for the house, one for the roof and another move for the shed.

FINISH: Landscaping will still be done, but the house will be completed outside and in.

FINISH: Landscaping will still be done, but the house will be completed outside and in.

Now that the paint has been removed, you can actually see the bones of the old house. “They got a good one,” Britton said. “Because they’re not all good.”

At less than 2km, the move seemed straightforward, though we’re not sure why they chose to do it in time of the rush – yes Ōtaki has one. Surely at night it would make more sense – as they do in cities?

They had to lower the house to scrape under power lines, and there were cars parked on the road. But being this Ōtaki, they are able to knock on doors and find owners to move most of them.

The children kept the interior of the villa in keeping with its character.

One of the best parts of this show was watching these massive trucks move a large millimeter of the house to ensure a perfect fit as they lower it into place. They can capture precise movements. Mautak.

Everyone was staring at the bad rain clouds, but the roof fell on the house at the right time to prevent a flood inside.

And before we know it Gayford is already doing the Grand Designs-style drive-up to see the finished product.

Jeff's love for plants was evident throughout the house.

Jeff’s love for plants was evident throughout the house.

Jeff and Rob did an amazing job. The whole villa is beautifully painted inside and out. The interior features lots of plants, soft curtains and character features appropriate to the villa’s season.

Oddly enough, however, they put a two-story, walk-in wardrobe in their bedroom that was hiking but the stairs to pick up a jacket could be missed. Perhaps more about conservation.

A property valuer values ​​the asset at between $ 1.25m and $ 1.35m. They probably spent $ 715,000 to $ 730,000 on this house, shed and land, including moving. This is why you moved houses and released DIY skills. (These two are considering a new build.)

And this is about what it really is - why you’re together.

NABUHAY

And this is about what it really is – why you’re together.

They paid approximately $ 335,000 for the site, $ 50,000 for the home and rain, and budgeted nearly $ 330,000 to $ 350,000 for relocation and renovations (relocation costs were $ 93,500).

This is a bargain. Not only do they have a nice, big house, but they also have a barn that they can afford for family gatherings, as they can accommodate parents on the ground.

And we will say that we are very impressed with the planned accommodation for the parents. This whole set-up shows exactly where the small houses come from.

Wins the whole round.

When Timaru supermarket owners Jason and Jo Williams decided to move to Christchurch it started with a chain reaction across the South Island.

The couple, after 13 years at Pak ‘n Save Timaru, moved to Pak‘ n Save Moorhouse, looking for new opportunities in the Foodstuffs network of supermarkets.

With the couple moving, New World Timaru owners Caroline and Jason Hall took the opportunity to move into ownership of Pak ‘n Save, which replaced Williams.

Halls moved across town towards Pak ‘n Save and then had effects on Wanaka as New World owners Justin and Jos Purcell decided to move north, taking the reins to Highfield Timaru.

The next town affected was Waimate as the opportunity to have a business in the alpine splendor of Central Otago proved irresistible for New World owners Stuart and Jacqui Hore as they headed to Wanaka.

In Blenheim, Tommy Glubb and Casey Hilton-Prior were looking for an increase in supermarket stair ownership and they took the opportunity, packing their bags and leaving Four Square Spring Creek for New World Waimate.

Their departure gave Sam and Billi Richmond the opportunity to join Foodstuffs as newlyweds, and they took over at Four Square Spring Creek.

Jos and Justin and Jos Purcell move from Wanaka to Timaru’s New World.

Jos and Justin and Jos Purcell move from Wanaka to Timaru’s New World.

Caroline Hall said they are having a hard time leaving Highfield New World after more than 11 years.

“We were really excited to be there and had great staff and customer bases. It was very difficult, but it was a new challenge and the opportunity came.”

Caroline Hall has a long association with the industry. His father Howard Smith started a Timaru dairy in the 1970s and ended up owning a New World supermarket.

“He’s a great mentor and an amazing workaholic. He’s practical in his advice; he’s always been a focused person.”

Hall attended the University of Canterbury and worked for Watties Heinz in Auckland before entering the industry at New World Waimate with his wife.

“Living in Auckland and working with corporates is very intense. Timaru is more family friendly.”

He said running a supermarket is difficult but rewarding.

“When you get the systems right in place it’s not too difficult, and we have great people helping. It’s a team effort.”

Highfield New World is expanding its car park.

Broadfield New World is expanding its car park.

Purcells helped open Pak ‘N Save Wainoni in 2006 after specializing in supply prior to that time.

“We’ve been in Wainoni for six years with the desire to have a business.

“We moved to New World Stanmore in 2012 which is right in the heart of Christchurch which was affected by the earthquakes. We are excited to get the chance to start our career and get a foot in the door. We have to go through repairs.”

Two years ago the Purcells moved to New World Wanaka which proved to be a case of going from earthquakes to Covid-19.

“International tourism has been a hit, but we are happily surprised at the support of New Zealand visitors and locals.

“It’s a great place to live and work and is also appreciated by the staff. The quality and diverse nature of the staff is amazing. You get people with tremendous life experience.”

The opportunity resumed for the Purcells to leave Wanaka for Timaru.

“Highfield New World is an amazing solid store. It has a great feel to it. We’re excited.”

Steve Anderson, CEO of Foodstuffs South Island, said the company has a value system for its owner operators that has four social commitments: ensuring New Zealanders have access to healthy and affordable food, creating meaningful employment, being a leader in sustainability, and supporting local communities.

“It’s incredibly important that all of our owner operators hold these same values, and when individuals apply to take over a store, each goes through a rigorous process to ensure they have the right character and skill-set that fits within our company culture. ”

He said when interviewing potential company owners the company looked for individuals who worked in its stores in a variety of roles.

“It gives them a good understanding of our business operations and how we operate on a day-to-day basis. Once approved as an owner, the individual can purchase one of our smaller ones. store, often a Four Frame or a smaller New World.

“By starting with our owners in a smaller, more established store they will learn the basics of how to run a successful supermarket.”

He said some owners started with a Four Frame and ended up moving to a New World or Pak ‘n Save, and joined the board of Foodstuffs South Island.

With so many physical and online-based moving companies promising hassle-free cross-country moving, it can be challenging to choose the best.

It is very important to make due diligence before arranging for a cross country movers. Comparing offers from different companies paints an idea of ​​how much money an individual needs and the complexity of the process.

A cross-country transition is not simple. Unlike a local move that can let an individual continue with work and other family matters, cross-country is demanding and time consuming. It is advisable to plan to have an easy time packing and moving.

“The planning process has to come before the move starts. In this case, you’re planning to move out of state, so you have to plan how they’ll move your valuables and the house you’re going to move in. It has to happen when you still attend to your work and family, ”Abel explained.

WeMove Anywhere provides clients with moving checklists to help them plan their move abroad. These checklists will help them plan how to pack items in boxes, which items are packaged separately, how to tidy up the first night, among other things.

Clients can hire an expert team to help them move or order their truck services to move themselves. However, moving cross-country can be very efficient, so it is advisable to let a team of experienced movers handle the whole process.

For customers who are too busy to find time to plan and pack, WeMove Anywhere offers a full-service cross-country option. Although it is a more expensive option, it helps clients make the most of their remaining time at work and with family.

“If you have no idea how to go through the entire process of transferring your assets to the states, contact us for full service options. Doing so will affect your bankroll, but full services that cross country option will help you move on to other roles such as work and family, ”Abel explains.

A well-moving company offers additional services, in addition to packing and unpacking. Both are the main pain points of the transition, but so is unpacking, cleaning the new house, and fixing furniture and other things. Customers should take advantage of moving firms that provide such offers because it saves them time, energy, and money.

WeMove Anywhere takes care of essential country moving services along with others to offer customers a positive experience. They also take full responsibility for clients ’assets while moving. In addition to that, they can help clean the clients new home and collect all the debris around and dispose of it appropriately.

Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) It recently announced that it is moving its headquarters from California to Texas. On the surface, it looks like a big deal. But for long -term business, it’s not much of a factor. Fool.com contributors Jason Hall and Nicholas Rossolillo discussed why here Motley Fool Live segment from “The 5” recorded in October 8.

Jason Hall: Nick, I’ll read this one and then you’ll go and then I’ll go and then we’ll let Jeremy take it home. Elon Musk. Just say what you want. No, I’m kidding. Here we go He moved to Texas last year. As commonly expected, Tesla’s headquarters will soon move from Palo Alto to Austin, following a massive spitting Musk has inflicted on California politicians.

If we think about going through the lockdowns, there was a time when he defiled local municipal governments and refused to shut down Tesla’s manufacturing facility, he eventually won. But usually, try to stay on the good side of your government, your political leadership, your regulators. However, Musk’s way to get it right even after the decision was announced, one of the local politicians even told Tesla, good damage. Here we are Here is the question. Does this news change your opinion on Tesla stock in any way? Then here is the real question. Are you stubborn or arrogant?

Nicholas Rossolillo: This is a dangerous subject. I think it’s a non-factor at the end of the day. I think the Fremont, California factory will stay, that will continue to turn on electric vehicles somehow.

Hall: Until they don’t need it, right. That’s the thing

Rossolillo: Until they don’t need it, that can be a long time. They still work in the manufacturing factory. There’s one for Berlin, there’s one in China. Tesla needs more manufacturing and that’s one of the things they’ll be working on in the coming years, increasing manufacturing capacity. Having it in California is not lost because they need it. But yeah, I mean, later on I think it’s almost like Elon Musk, he can make some comments sometimes that don’t like it. But he was also, eventually, a man of his word.

Hall: Yeah, that’s a good way to put it.

Oct. 13-Frederick County approached Tuesday to buy $ 20 million worth of property at 800 Oak St. of Frederick.

A favorable 5-2 vote from the County Council frees up the necessary funds to acquire the 26-acre property on U.S. Route 15, which includes a 209,000-square-foot facility currently used for COVID vaccines. The province plans to finalize the purchase Friday.

The final price approved by the council was $ 32 million, which includes preparing the facility’s roof for the solar panels. The county expects to recover a chunk of the $ 20 million cost of owning the site-not including costs beyond acquiring the property-by combining operations and efficiency improvements to bring the net cost between $ 7 million and $ 8 million, according to county officials.

Critics of the purchase, including Frederick Mayor Michael O’Connor (D) and at least four of the city’s five Frederick aldermen, said the county was in a hurry and lacked transparency in its move to acquire the property.

County officials and council members supported the acquisition, however, saying they needed to move quickly to meet the deadline set by the Miami-based private equity firm selling the property. Moreover, they felt that the speed was fair.

“I really appreciate the fact that we’re not moving at government speed to do this,” Councilman Steve McKay, who voted in favor of the purchase, said at the said meeting. “We should all applaud that.”

Joining McKay (R) in support of the bid were Council President MC Keegan-Ayer (D), Council Vice President Michael Blue (R), Councilwoman Jessica Fitzwater (D) and Councilman Jerry Donald (D).

County leaders have not finalized plans for the Oak Street facility. They hope to use it to expedite large projects, including moving the province’s 911 call center and adding a library in the western part of the city. Avoiding the construction of new buildings for such projects will also save the province money, officials said.

The county expects to centralize some government services and address space needs that Chief Administrative Officer Rick Harcum said exist in “most” county departments. The county plans to keep its home at Winchester Hall and its presence in buildings along N. Market Street, Harcum said.

Council members Phil Dacey (R) and Kai Hagen (D) voted against the acquisition. Both councilors said they think the county should be more open with city officials about its intent to buy the Oak Street property, located in Frederick. Dacey chose the council vote partly over its city counterparts.

“It’s a big decision in the kind of generation about where to put the provincial government inside [city] boundaries, but we are not included [the city] in a chair at the table, “Dacey said at the meeting.” I don’t think that’s the right message to our city partners. “

In letters to the council, city leaders asked the province to provide documents pertaining to the property, but even under the Public Information Act, the province was not allowed to comply with the city’s request until after the sale, said provincial officials. The city request also includes information that the seller is likely to want to remain private, Harcum said, which is common in property acquisitions.

The backlash from city leaders came as a surprise to some county officials, including Keegan-Ayer, who said he had not heard from his counterpart on the Board of Aldermen before receiving the first in a small letter from the aldermen and mayor.

“I just regret the fact that there was this level of animosity between the province and the city,” Keegan-Ayer, whose district has the facility located on Oak Street, said at the meeting. “I think things could have been handled better.”

Neither the mayor nor Kelly Russell, the presidential pro tem for the Aldermen Board, responded to requests for comment from The News-Post Tuesday.

LOS ANGELES – (BUSINESS RIGHTS) – Global Clean Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCQX: GCEH) has released the Proxy Statement and Annual report for the November 17, 2022 annual stockholders meeting. The Annual Report contains the following Letter to Shareholders that provided shareholders with an update on GCEH’s vertically integrated Farm-to-Fuel businesses, including the status of the renovation of the renewable diesel refinery in Bakersfield, California.

Letter of the President to Shareholders

As we prepare for our annual shareholder meeting this fall, I would like to send this letter to all of our shareholders to give you an update on our progress. Our team, now approaching 100 members, is working tirelessly to achieve our goal of building a truly integrated biofuels business value chain. Our Farm-to-Fuels strategy is already underway as we continue to invest in assets and people in our Upstream, Midstream, and Downstream businesses.

I would like to take this opportunity to publicly welcome all our new employees and new board members to the GCEH organization and thank our entire team for their outstanding work. To achieve great things, you need great people … and we continue to be extremely fortunate to attract incredible talent. Our team possesses world experience and creativity, which translates into positive energy and a passion for our overall mission, strategy and purpose.

Since my last update, we have made significant progress in moving our Upstream, Midstream, and Downstream businesses, as well as advancing our corporate goal to uplist our stock on a national exchange.

GCEH – Our progress includes moving our public listing up to the highest level of the OTC Markets listing, the OTCQX Best Market, which is two levels higher than last year. We had already filed an application with the Nasdaq, and our intention was to be listed on the Nasdaq by the end of the year. To be ready for the Nasdaq and position the company for significant near -term growth, we’ve placed several key items:

  • Last quarter, we increased the size of our Board of Directors to five members by adding two experienced independent Board members who will also participate on Board committees (one of whom will also serve as a new head of our Audit Committee).

  • We contacted Grant Thornton LLP, as our newly independent registered public accounting firm, to begin their services for our third-quarter review. Grant Thornton is a large international company with substantial knowledge and deep talent and diversity in agriculture, energy, infrastructure and taxation, making their experience in our businesses and growth well-established.

  • Reporting and compliance processes have been enhanced to comply with Nasdaq requirements, along with a robust delegation of authority, internal controls and processes and procedures.

Up – Sustainable Oils – This year, we have been busy developing both our Camelina plant genelina and our grower relationships, including the following:

Plant genetics – We expanded our portfolio of plant genetics and capabilities with Agribody Technologies, Inc. (ATI), an agricultural biotechnology company. The intellectual property (IP) we acquired in our purchase of ATI includes major patents that could improve Camelina yield and stress tolerance.

New Varieties of Camelina – This year we applied for seven new Camelina patents and submitted six applications of protection of various plants. We planted large acreages of commercial testing of new Camelina varieties to demonstrate their commercial ability to the existing and growing base of farmers. These additional variations will significantly expand our unique Camelina IP portfolio.

Farmer / Farmer Placement -We have entered into strategic relationships with several farmer cooperatives and other large agriculture-based entities to expand Camelina’s adoption fund through their existing grower networks in Montana, Kansas, Colorado and Washington. We will also continue to grow and expand Camelina production through third-party farmers in Idaho and Oregon.

Expanded Facility – We are in the process of relocating the North American headquarters of Sustainable Oils to Great Falls, Montana. This move includes the move to a new state-of-the-art facility, as well as the expansion of our technical and commercial staff. The new, worldwide facility is strategically located in the southern part of Montana’s “Golden Triangle” farming region. Our expanded team of highly experienced geneticists, breeders, agronomists, and commercial crop managers significantly increases our ability to support our grower network. The expanded facility in Montana includes additional technical and commercial capabilities capable of supporting our extensive acreage expansion of Camelina commercial production in the region.

Midstream – We are expanding the segment that is central to our operations to provide grain aggregation, processing, and transportation capabilities for our Camelina growers. To support our expansion in Montana, we are developing three grain aggregation sites along with the assets of an existing cooperative, CHS Inc., in the region. When completed, the new aggregation assets will benefit the cooperative’s resources to optimize our integrated processing and product handling facilities. Our goal is to be fully operational at our first site by the fall 2022 harvest.

Downstream – Bakersfield Renewable Fuels – Our raw oil refining business, which is anchored by our biorefinery in Bakersfield, CA, is on track to be fully operational in the first quarter of 2022. We remain focused on completing construction and preparing to begin our operations. of the refinery in the coming months. We continued to expand our relationships by signing a term purchase agreement with ExxonMobil for the commercialization of our ultra-low carbon feedstock supply and renewable diesel produced in Bakersfield. Our progress towards becoming the nation’s leading, lowest cost manufacturer of ultra-low carbon renewable fuels is accelerating. Farm-to-Fuels ’integrated value chain approach differs us from other renewable fuel producers, both domestically and globally.

To provide our shareholders with more information about our business and operations, we have added our first Corporate Presentation to our website. We hope that the Corporate Presentation will give you more information about our business strategy and unique position in the industry, as well as other general information about us. www.gceholdings.com/presentations.

In closing, we are expanding our strategic relationships with global entities, such as ExxonMobil and CHS. Together, we continue our pursuit of producing feedless non-food based and advancing towards our goal of “net zero” emitting fuels.

We always appreciate the continued support you put in the vision of our Board of Directors and our management team.

Again, as always, thank you so much … Watch us grow !!!

Warm regards,

Richard Palmer

President and Chief Executive Officer

The Norman Hispanic population has surpassed the growth of the city News https://thebiblepost.com/the-norman-hispanic-population-has-surpassed-the-growth-of-the-city-news/ Sun, 10 Oct 2021 10:30:00 +0000 https://thebiblepost.com/the-norman-hispanic-population-has-surpassed-the-growth-of-the-city-news/ Norman’s Hispanic population has grown faster in the past decade than the city’s overall population, and those in the community expect that growth will only continue in the coming years.

Norman’s Hispanic population has grown faster in the past decade than the city’s overall population, and those in the community expect that growth will only continue in the coming years.

According to Census Bureau records, the city’s Hispanic population grew from 7,082 to 11,827 from 2010 to 2020. The city as a whole grew from 110,925 to 128,026.

The growth rate of the Hispanic community was 67% over the decade – 52% higher than the city’s overall growth, the data indicate. Hispanic residents, by 2020, make up 9% of the city’s population, up from 6% in 2010.

The numbers are even higher at Norman Public Schools-the student body was 16.3% Hispanic in the 2020-2021 school year, according to records.

The population trend in Norman is a microcosm of a larger one in Oklahoma. The state’s Hispanic population grew a full three percentage points to 11.9% in the decade, the data showed.

Even with the increasing population, some still believe that the numbers are undercounted.

Otto Orellana, a Guatemalan immigrant who moved to Norman from the Los Angeles area in the mid-2000s with his wife Saidy, said first-generation Hispanic immigrants often chose not to report out of fear. they to immigration officials who arrest them if they report to the census Saidy Orellana also said that natives from Latin American countries can only be identified as in the census, which lowers the number.

Report it or not, thousands of Hispanic residents now rule all walks of life in Norman.

“The majority [of people] being happy, making us feel accepted, so when we feel safe, accepted and celebrated for our difference, that’s a place you want to go and give your best, ”Saidy Orellana said.

Reasons to come, reasons to stay

Otto Orellana said a community like Norman is attractive for generations of Hispanic immigrants from Latin America.

The relatively moderate crime rate and pace of life offer a stark contrast to many countries in Central and South America under the thumb of civil war or drug violence, he said.

“When you move to Norman, oh my god – it’s incredible,” he said. “A lot of people say it’s heaven on earth.”

The Orellanas moved to Norman because there were no Hispanic churches in the city. They founded the Iglesia Pueblo de Dios, pastor of Otto Orellana.

When they first moved, their children stood in their almost-white school, Saidy Orellana said. While Hispanic students are well represented in the NPS student population, only 1.75% of teachers in the district were Hispanic as of December 2020, records show.

The Orellanas story is similar to that of Jonathan Quinonez, who moved to the Pauls Valley from the Los Angeles area in 1999 with his father. Like the Orellanas, Quinonez’s father moved to the area to become a pastor.

Quinonez said he was one of only two Hispanic students in his graduating class in 2006.

“It’s different, because of [Southern] California, everyone speaks Spanish, ”Quinonez said. Hispanics residents are the largest ethnic demographic in California, data shows.

Quinonez and Otto Orellana both noticed Hispanic residents moving away from California because of the lower cost of living in other parts of the country. Both said it would be easier, in other parts of the country, for them to achieve the “American dream” of a career and owning a home for themselves and their families, something Quinonez said is ingrained. of immigrants.

Since they moved to Oklahoma, Orellanas and Quinonez have both seen an increase in the Hispanic population. Otto Orellana said there are now five or six Hispanic churches in Norman.

When it comes to transfers, Quinonez said it “takes one person” for others to follow in their footsteps.

“A family member was here, told their family, ‘Hey, the cost of living is cheap here. You can buy five houses where the cost of your house is there,'” he said.

When they arrived in Norman, Hispanic residents were working in every profession, Otto Orellana said.

Cinthya Allen, Norman’s head of diversity and equity officer, said entrepreneurship is well known to the Hispanic population as well. Quinonez said there are two Hispanic stores in the city that he sees clients from his Farmer’s Insurance office.

In his office, Quinonez said he has seen more Spanish -speaking clients as the Hispanic population grows.

“Just being a resident of Norman and seeing more businesses open, restaurants open, with natural latino or cuisine, is just interesting,” Allen said.

Allen, who lived in Norman for 21 years after moving to Oklahoma City from Mexico, said he stayed in the city after attending the University of Oklahoma. He said there is an international student presence at OU that makes it receptive for Hispanic students.

The university also provides careers for Hispanic youth, Otto Orellana said.

“Norman brings the best opportunities,” he said.

‘A more inclusive space that draws people’

When asked how much he expects the Hispanic population to grow over the next decade, Otto Orellana said he sees it as likely to double.

As the city’s Hispanic population grew, the city and community services became more accommodating. The city and NPS websites can be translated into Spanish, and the school district has bilingual staff at the sites with the highest need, NPS communications director Wes Moody said. NPS also has Hispanic families every night, Moody said.

But the community needs to continue to be more responsive to population growth, Saidy Orellana said. He said he wanted the NPS to have an evening orientation in Spanish.

Allen said his office is looking at how to expand “opportunity awareness” for aspects of city life such as entrepreneurship and civic engagement for the Hispanic population and others.

“It’s diverse elements like this that create a more inclusive space that draws people in,” Allen said.

“Its goal is not just to know the numbers, but to implement these methods to improve the lives of these communities,” Saidy Orellana said.

UNHCR Set to Start Humanitarian Ops for Rohingya in Remote Island – BenarNews https://thebiblepost.com/unhcr-set-to-start-humanitarian-ops-for-rohingya-in-remote-island-benarnews/ Fri, 08 Oct 2021 21:16:00 +0000 https://thebiblepost.com/unhcr-set-to-start-humanitarian-ops-for-rohingya-in-remote-island-benarnews/ After months of negotiations, the United Nations refugee agency will begin humanitarian operations on a remote island where Bangladesh has displaced nearly 19,000 Rohingya and plans to relocate more than 80,000 others, a senior minister told BenarNews on Friday.

After months of negotiations, the United Nations refugee agency will begin humanitarian operations on a remote island where Bangladesh has displaced nearly 19,000 Rohingya and plans to relocate more than 80,000 others, a senior minister told BenarNews on Friday.

The government and UNHCR are set to sign a memorandum this weekend, according to Enamur Rahman, state minister to the Minister of Disaster Management. He did not say when the refugee agency’s work on the island would begin.

“UNHCR has finally agreed to start their operation in Bhashan Char. They will sign an MoU [Memorandum of Understanding] with my ministry on Saturday, ”Rahman told BenarNews.

Bangladesh has built houses on the remote island of Bengal so that it can relocate refugees there from overcrowded camps to Cox’s Bazar, a mainland southeastern district near the Myanmar border.

BenarNews contacted the refugee agency’s office in Dhaka and its headquarters in Geneva on Friday, but did not immediately hear back. However, UNHCR confirmed to news agency Agence France-Presse that it was signing the memorandum.

“After the signing of the MoU, UNHCR will conduct operations in the same way they do now in the Cox’s Bazar camps – UNHCR will provide food, health and other humanitarian services to the Rohingya in Bhashan Char,” said minister Rahman.

Currently, local NGOs are providing food and health services for the Rohingya in Bhashan Char, he said.

Those who fled the island said they get food for free, but the quality and variety is better at Cox’s Bazar. Health care facilities are also better on the mainland.

Rahman said he hopes Rohingya will prefer to move to the island from the crowded Cox’s Bazar once UNHCR begins humanitarian work there.

“We plan to relocate some 83,000 more Rohingya to Bhashan Char in stages,” he said.

Cox’s Bx hosts about 1 million Rohingya. The refugees include more than 740,000 who fled Myanmar after the military launched a brutal offensive in August 2017 against the community in their own state of Rakhine.

But the influx of a large population of refugees has forced the economy and hosts communities in the coastal border district. In addition, temporary shanties in 34 refugee camps on the mainland are fire hazards.

To alleviate that pressure, and as the prospects of the repatriation of refugees have become more intense, Bangladesh has built facilities in Bhashan Char – it says it cost $ 280 million – with the goal of relocating 100,000 refugees. refugees there.

The first batch of Rohingya moved in December 2020.

Some rights groups have accused the Rohingya of not voluntarily migrating to the island, as the Bangladesh government insists. Others have alleged that the government had wrongly promised refugees citizenship if they moved to Bhashan Char.

BenarNews has not been able to substantiate any of these allegations.

Meanwhile, some Rohingya and rights groups say that since the migration, hundreds of refugees have fled to the remote island, some dying for their lives. In August, 11 Rohingya were killed and 15 were missing after their boat capsized in bad weather when they tried to escape the island.

Some fled because of poor facilities and others because they had nothing to do there. They said they were not allowed to leave towards the mainland for shopping trips or to meet relatives.

‘Better facilities’

Abdul Kader, a Rohingya leader on the island, said he moved to Bhashan Char hoping there would be economic opportunities there.

“But there is no source of revenue here,” Kader told BenarNews by phone on Friday.

Si Md. Yunuch, a leader of a cluster of eight settlements in Bhashan Char, said he was hopeful about starting a UNHCR operation on the island.

“We are happy that UNHCR will provide us with humanitarian services in Bhashan Char. We will get facilities like camps in Cox’s Bazar, and the trend of escape to the camps will go down,” Yunuch told BenarNews in by phone on Friday.

“Because UNHCR doesn’t work here, we don’t get facilities like Cox’s Bazar camps,” Yunuch said.

Si Md. Zbair, secretary of the Arakan Rohingya Society for Peace and Human Rights, said he wanted to wait and see how things would change with the presence of the UNHCR on the island.

“If they get better facilities, more Rohingya will be interested in moving to Bhashan Char,” he told BenarNews.

For years, international rights and refugee groups, including the UN, have criticized Bangladesh for planning to relocate Rohingya to the island, which they say lacks adequate facilities and is barely accessible.

In part, their criticism came from the UN saying Bangladesh, for more than two years, had refused numerous requests for its officials to visit Bhashan Char. The world body wants to conduct a technical analysis of the island using international experts, it said.

UN officials are finally allowed to visit in March. Their journey was followed by separate visits conducted by the Red Cross and messengers from many countries contributing to the Rohingya response.

Then in June, UN officials for the first time endorsed Bangladesh’s decision to transfer the Rohingya to Bhashan Char, but said economic activities should be created for “isolated” residents. area in the Bay of Bengal.

Munshi Faiz Ahmad, a former chairman of the foreign minister’s think-tank, the Bangladesh Institute of International and Strategic Studies, said the UNHCR agreeing to work with Bhashan Char would give Rohingya the confidence to move and also benefit from those on the mainland.

“Housing and other facilities in Bhashan Char are better than in Cox’s Bazar. The camps in Cox’s Bazar will be less crowded if more Rohingya move to Bhashan Char,” he said.

“Rohingya people are pushed into the sale of illicit drugs, internecine violence and other social evils [in Cox’s Bazar]. But in Bhashan Char, they will not encounter such problems. They will involve themselves in economic activities. “
