What was planned as an “unsupervised” facility now will be staffed during all open hours.Ocean City is advertising for part-time recreation attendants to monitor and enforce the rules of the new Cape May County Skateboard Park in Ocean City at Fifth Street and Asbury Avenue.The new state-of-the-art concrete park opened on Sept. 24 and immediately attracted big crowds of skaters of all ages. But from the start, skaters without required helmets and pads outnumbered those with them — particularly among adolescents and young adults.The disregard of the park’s rules forced the Ocean City Community Services Department to briefly lock the gates to the park on Sept. 29 before reopening later that day with city staff on patrol.The park is open 9 a.m. to dusk daily — a schedule that will require the city to hire more than one part-time attendant.Ocean City Business Administrator Jim Mallon said Wednesday that the city should be OK getting through the remainder of the year within budget. He said that the Recreation Department would have to include a new allocation in the city budget for next year.Assuming an average 9 hours a day at $9 an hour, the expense for staffing the park would be approximately $30,000.Mallon said park monitoring could be supplemented with seasonal staff on occasion.The city appropriated $250,000 from its capital improvement budget to pay for its share of the approximately $750,000 facility (with a Cape May County Green Acres Recreation Grant paying the rest), but the city did not budget for ongoing operating expenses related to the park. Rules of the park are clearly posted on signs at the entrance, and skaters invested in the park’s success maintained a fairly rigorous but fruitless effort to self-police in the first days the park was open.The park is free to use but the job posting leaves open the possibility that the attendant “may collect fees from skaters.”The park rules are as follows:Skate Park will be open daily from 9:00 am to dusk (weather permitting). A small gatehouse was moved from the Sixth Street municipal parking lot to the new skateboard park at Fifth Street and Asbury Avenue in Ocean City last week. Skate Park will be closed during inclement weather and/or when equipment is damaged or wet or for routine maintenance.The following protective equipment is required to be used while skating: helmet, elbow pads, knee pads.Use of personally owned ramps, boxes, rails or other similar items is prohibited.Use of alcohol and tobacco products is prohibited.Skate Park is for skating. Bikes and scooters are prohibited.No amplified sound is permitted except by permit.Parental supervision for inexperienced skaters and those less than 12 years of age 1s strongly recommended.No food or glass containers are permitted in the skate park.Unsafe conditions should be reported to the City of Ocean City, Department of Community Services.Skating is prohibited on the adjacent parking lots, sidewalks and streets.Proper behavior is required at all times. Abusive, profane language or aggressive behavior will not be tolerated.Rules violations will result in suspension of skating privileges.______Sign up for free breaking news alerts and daily updates on Ocean City news.
Macadamia nuts are native to Australia but are also cultivated commercially in Hawaii. They are very difficult to crack out of their shells, but are well worth the effort. They have a creamy flavour and crunchy texture, which goes well with semi dried fruits such as cranberries, cherries and blueberries. Although low in carbohydrate, they are quite high in fat. They work well in biscuits such as White Chocolate and Macadamia Nut Cookies and can also be added to Brownies and Blondies instead of walnuts.Why not try them mixed with coconut in a sponge cake and try using them in the sticky top of a Pear and Ginger Upside Down Cake. They can be used instead of pecans in a tart case with brown sugar, syrup, vanilla extract, eggs and a little flour to make something akin to Pecan Pie and as they match so well with chocolate put some in the base of a chocolate tart . They can also be lightly roasted, ground coarsely and added to meringues before they are baked. Add carefully with some of the sugar as the amount of fat in the nuts can make the meringue collapse or very chewy. Once cooked, sandwich with chocolate-flavoured cream.Fiona Burrell, co-author of Leiths Baking Bible, from Leiths School of Food and Wine
On Tuesday afternoon, the Notre Dame LGBT Law Forum hosted a panel in the McCartan Courtroom of the Law School to discuss the current case in front of the Supreme Court of the United States. Three panelists discussed whether or not Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 provides protection for transgender individuals and the greater LGBT community from workplace discrimination. Jackson Oxler | The Observer A panel hosted by the LGBT Law Forum discussed Title VII protections against discrimination in the workplace Tuesday in McCartan Courtroom.The three members of the panel included Kim Hively, the named plaintiff in the Hively v. Ivy Tech case, Steve Sanders, a professor at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law who has been involved in many key cases relating to LGBT rights, and Eduardo Juarez, a trial attorney for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).Title VII states that one cannot discriminate in employment based on “race, color, religion, sex or national origin.” The Supreme Court is currently hearing case R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC & Aimee Stephens and must decide if the discrimination on sex covers gender identification.Juarez began the discussion by providing an in-depth overview of past legal cases related to Title VII and how these cases relate to today. Among these was the case Price Waterhouse v. Hopkins, in which a female employee was denied partnership and was then told she did not dress, act or talk femininely. She won her discrimination case in a landmark decision.“Taking gender into account violates Title VII, and the court held that this evidence was gender stereotyping and that, in general, the definition of gender stereotyping misconduct, is founded on this insistence that men and women comply to certain norms,” Juarez said.Related to the Price Waterhouse v. Hopkins case was Smith v. City of Salem, in which the U.S. Court of Appeals determined discrimination against transgender employees is a violation of Title VII. Juarez connected this to the current case in front of the Supreme Court in that they must now determine how transgender identity and Title VII relate.In their opening arguments for R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC & Aimee Stephens, plaintiff attorneys argued Title VII does cover transgender individuals.“The court said there should be no difference with the protected category of sex,” Sanders said. “If you fire someone because of a change in sex, it is the same thing. It is discrimination against sex.”Sanders said past cases related to R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC & Aimee Stephens are also related to arguments at the Supreme Court.“Is this about taking into account sex and what it means to discriminate on sex, … or is this just a very, sort of hyper-formalistic argument? No, it is because of sex,” Sanders said. “If a female employee wants to date a male, that’s fine. But if a male wants to date a male, that’s not fine and they get punished for it. That just seems like straight forward discrimination because of sex.”Hively recounted her story in the case Hively v. Ivy Tech. Hively had worked at the community college for several years but was denied job opportunities several times due to her sexuality. As an openly lesbian woman, she said she felt wronged that the school had discriminated against her. She filed the case, and after several years she won.To conclude the discussion, the panelists answered audience questions. One question addressed concerns that confirming that Title VII protects transgender individuals from discrimination, “mass chaos” would ensue.At the end, the panelists offered their thoughts on how the case might turn out. Sanders stated he finds it probable Justice Gorsuch will be convinced by the plaintiff’s arguments, as was indicated in the preliminary stages of the case. His vote could mean the Supreme Court would tip in favor of the plaintiffs.Tags: LGBT Law Forum, Supreme Court, Title IX
Facebook Twitter Google+ BUFFALO — Jaycee Gebhard’s face burned red as she skated to the penalty box. The Robert Morris forward had seen her teammate get crushed into the boards on the other side of the ice and no arm raise by the referee. Then, as Gebhard came in on the forecheck immediately after, she was whistled for tripping. Gebhard shook her head and took a seat on the bench inside the box. It was indicative of an evening in which Syracuse (13-21-3, 10-8-2 College Hockey America) frustrated the Colonials’ (16-14-6, 13-4-3) star forward through the first two periods with constant stick checking and holds, all within the confines of the rules. Syracuse’s physical defense led to a 6-2 blowout victory against the No. 1-seed in the CHA tournament final.“She’s a lot of their offense, so knowing that when she’s out there, that’s very key for us,” defender Jessica DiGirolamo said. “Then we made sure that we had a stick on her at all times so that she didn’t have the ability to make any plays.” Syracuse had never won a CHA title. It had lost in six previous finals appearances, including a 2-0 loss to RMU in the 2017 final. That made it want a win on Friday even more, senior captain Allie Munroe said. And it showed. Nearly every time Gebhard, who led the CHA with 50 regular season points, skated near the boards or tried to beat defenders along the wall, Syracuse players forced her onto the glass and kept her there until the puck was safely away. None of the other Colonials found much space in the offensive zone either. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn numerous occasions, a SU player was there to dive and knock the puck away or deflect it out of play. Shots came at a premium and goal-scoring chances even more so. The Orange finished with 19 blocks to RMU’s four, and while goalie Ady Cohen made some key stops, Robert Morris was held to 28 shots on goal on 54 total shot attempts. “In these tournaments, it comes down to who wants it more,” Munroe said. “And we waited, this program’s waited 11 years for this, and it meant so much to us that we got it done today, finally.”Robert Morris scored a goal with under a minute to play in the first period, which SU head coach Paul Flanagan called a “tough bounce.” RMU’s Caitlyn Sadowy fired the shot from the faceoff circle, and it snuck through between Cohen’s blocker and body before hitting the post and going in. That was the last goal the Orange allowed before the third period, though, as they took control of the game in the middle frame. Initially, Flanagan tried to matchup lines so that when Gebhard was on the ice, SU’s underclassmen line of Emma Polaski, Lauren Bellefontaine and Abby Moloughney was too. It was difficult because RMU had the last change, but for the entire first period, Gebhard was never on the ice at even strength without SU’s young line there guarding her. As the Orange pulled away, Flanagan also went away from his rigid matchups. Even on penalty kills, he rolled through his lines as he would against any other player, and that allowed Gebhard to get a consolation score in the third period. But by that point, SU was too far ahead.“You get up, four or five goals, and it’s OK, don’t worry about the matchups,” Flanagan said. “Shift into a 1-2-2, little more prevent, just get it deep. You saw us flipping it out of the zone a lot, just getting the pressure off.”On Friday, the Colonials drubbed the Orange, 5-0, to clinch the top spot. But in the first game of the weekend, the scoreline read a one-sided affair. It made the next day’s game less intense, Flanagan said, as Syracuse was already locked into third.It proved the Orange could compete with Robert Morris, and like Flanagan said on Tuesday before boarding the bus to Buffalo, they just needed some bounces to go their way. Cohen was in net for the 5-0 loss, and after starting and winning on Thursday against Mercyhurst, was picked over senior goalie Maddi Welch to play in SU’s most important game of the season.And with a conference title and bid to the NCAA tournament on the line, Cohen and her defenders made sure this team really was different to those in the past. There was a different “edge” to them, Flanagan said in the lead up to the tournament, and in winning three games in three days, the Orange showed it.“We got here for a reason,” Munroe said. “We worked hard, all season long, and it paid off, but everything we went through as a team, and here we are as champions.” Comments Published on March 8, 2019 at 9:48 pm Contact Arabdho: [email protected] | @aromajumder
