    Yes, the gazebo back on the table in Lancaster – Worcester Telegram - October 23, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    LANCASTER - The saga of the gazebo might never end.

    Currently, the production company associated with axed Netflix TV show The Society is scheduled to move the gazebo back to its final place on the Town Green during the week of Nov. 5.

    Town Administrator Orlando Pacheco said that was their drop dead date as the production company no longer exists and the corporation itself has to dissolve.

    But several residents, including those on the Town Green Committee, wanted the move postponed until the Town Green Committee made its recommendations - and also until they could request from the Board of Selectmen a charge to that committees charter, to extend their say over anything and everything that is or could go on the Town Green.

    The ad-hoc town green committee is for signage, not the gazebo Selectman Walter Sendrowski said repeatedly.

    This issue is larger than signage, said committee member and Historical Commission Chairman Heather Lennon, and the gazebo move needs further study.

    Multiple residents wanted Pacheco to ask the production company to set aside the approximately $8,000 it will cost to move the gazebo 500 feet on the Town Green and give it directly to the town, or otherwise delay the move.

    The town is not hostage to a company and its our Town Green, resident Linnea Lakin said.

    Eventually, Pacheco agreed to find out if the production company was willing to change plans.

    Sendrowski said he thought the whole issue of leaving the gazebo on the Town Green had been decided at a previous town meeting and was a done deal. But he was corrected by former Selectman Mark Grasso that the town meeting vote had been a nonbinding resolution that selectmen at the time (including Sendrowski) had chosen to abide by as custodians of all town property.

    I never thought Id be discussing this again, Grasso said.

    A special meeting of the selectmen may be called in order to decide if the charter of the Town Green Committee should be expanded, prior to the scheduled move of the gazebo.

    Additionally, the ADA compliance of the gazebo was discussed.

    Resident Win Clark said it needed a design review before installation to avoid a big ugly ramp like what was there before, and common sense needs to be applied. In addition to aesthetics, Pacheco pointed out that the previous installment had the ramp not in compliance because it was pointed in the wrong direction so the new one would already look better.

    Question 3

    Due to an error by the secretary of state, the printed ballots missed important language in the explanation of Question 3, asking Lancastrians to pass the Community Preservation Act. One of three exemptions, the residential exemption excluding the first $100,000 of valuation from the new tax, was omitted entirely.

    Resident Victoria Petracca, one of the authors of the ballot question, said the exemption was one of the major points of the proposed law, causing the tax increase to be less than $1 a week for most households. It also wouldnt ratify what was passed at town meeting if the language was incorrect.

    As a result of the mistake, 1,980 ballots were reprinted with the right part underlined and in red and some were re-sent to voters, including 23 overseas voters. Residents doing in-person early voting before the new ballots arrived were given official letters changing the text along with their ballot.

    People who have already voted by mail have the opportunity to change their mind by calling and spoiling their ballot, then redoing it by mail or in person, Town Clerk Dianne Reardon said. She said ballots remain valid unless a resident chooses to spoil it and cast another.

    Town meeting

    The special town meeting this autumn will focus on the budget so that the tax rate can be set, with no capital requests and few other articles.

    For financial reasons, it has to be held before Dec. 1, so selectmen scheduled it for Monday, Nov. 23. The backup date will be the Nov. 30.

    Proceedings will be held both indoors and outdoors at the Mary Rowlandson School.

    The citizens petition at the last town meeting, filed by Roy Mirabito, to prevent residents from serving concurrently on the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals was not approved by the state attorney generals office because it was not attached to a specific town bylaw.

    Mirabito said he would have reworked the original article if he had known of the error, and that assistance being guided through the procedures would have helped. Pacheo explained that a citizens petition is the citizens responsibility, without policy or legal support from the town. Only government petitions follow the town process.

    To avoid it being rejected by the state again, Mirabito asked for and received endorsement by selectmen for it to become a selectmens article and receive advice from town counsel. It passed 2-1, with Sendrowski voting no.

    However, its possible selectmen will decide to only have articles on financial matters and Mirabitos petition might have to wait until spring.

    In other business

    The next selectmens meeting has been moved to Nov. 9 at5 pm.

    After multiple discussions at recent meetings, former Selectman Alix Turner said the Board of Selectmen may have already passed a name change to Selectboard over seven years ago. Pacheco will check the bylaws and old meeting minutes.

    The Route 2 bridge detour was called a nuisance by Pacheco as it causes vehicles to be redirected from Lunenburg Road to go around Fort Pond Road and Shirley Road, which is a residential area not used to that much thru traffic. Pacheco said MassDOT is trying to accelerate getting the bridge back online, but it will take three to six months.

    A $5,000 grant was received by the town clerk to provide safes for the towns vital records dating back to the 1800s that are documented on paper and cant be electronically replicated.

    85 years of Kinsmen, Kinettes in Medicine Hat – CHAT News Today - October 23, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    We did gazebos at the hospital, we did a gazebo at the treatment centre projects that help multiple people. Thats why we fund public skating and public swimming for people who cant afford to do it but still want to do it, said Atkinson. There is always that need.

    Other Kin projects include the aquatic park at the Family Leisure Centre and the recent enhancements at the Medicine Hat Public Librarys childrens section.

    But the popularity of service clubs as a whole has waned in recent years.

    I think with COVID, its really changed again, he said. People are wanting to come back and give back more because they see the importance now of giving back and doing more.

    Not to be outdone, the Medicine Hat Kinette Club was formed in 1941, only a few years after the Kinsmen first as an auxiliary club then as its own stand-alone organization.

    Their initiatives have ranged from Kinette Korner to supporting the citys womens shelter and Be Youth Centre.

    President Lisa Maggrah says the Kinettes are a small but mighty club that is welcoming of new members looking to do a good turn for the community and themselves.

    We challenge each other, we help each other grow, we support each other, were there for each other, said Maggrah. Its not just about how we serve our community, its about fellowship. Its about fun. Its about connection and building relationships.

    And the Kinettes commitment to Medicine Hat is no less than their male counterparts.

    Medicine Hat is a beautiful place to live and if we could add to that, then thats what were here for, said Maggrah.

    Dougherty County memorial to victims of 2017 tornado unveiled at Radium Springs – The Albany Herald - October 23, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    ALBANY On the evening of Jan. 22, 2017, Leon Gohman was looking forward to watching an Atlanta Falcons playoff game after evening church services. Instead, after receiving a warning, he and wife Patricia found themselves hunkered down in the bathroom with their two dogs due to threatening weather.

    When a powerful tornado hit the Radium Springs area, it sent a tree limb through the roof of the Gohmans house on Holly Drive, fatally wounding Patricia, who died four days later.

    On Thursday, Dougherty County officials dedicated a memorial to Patricia Gohman and the four other county residents who died in the storm.

    Wed been married for 51 years, Gohman said. We lived in the home for 25 years.

    The memorial unveiled on Thursday is a white column with a piece of steel wrapped around it. The names and birth dates of Patricia Ann Gohman, retired USAF Maj. Paul J. Freeman, Cathay McMahan Mosley, James Edward Mosley and Oscar Reyna are engraved on the steel.

    I think its a nice remembrance, Gohman said.

    The memorial sits next to the renovated gazebo and near the renovated ticket booth on the site where the former Radium Springs casino stood. The casino was torn down after it was struck by a fire and inundated by floodwaters in 1994 and 1998.

    (They) talked about it back in the past; it was so beautiful, Gohman said of the site. Its becoming that way again, but its very different.

    This year the county received $1.5 million in funding from the state to renovate a historic bridge that will be part of a trail system that begins at the former golf course nearby and eventually will connect the area to downtown Albany.

    Dougherty County Administrator Michael McCoy recalled during the ceremony being in the nearby emergency management center when the tornado struck. Afterward, he and other officials walked through a wooded area to get their first view of the aftermath.

    We could hear destruction ripping all around us, he said. It didnt last long, but it seemed like an eternity. We had no idea what we would find when we emerged.

    Looking all around us, we saw nothing but destruction. We heard, at a distance, people in distress, but we could not get to them. The loss of lives was terrible.

    Soon after the disaster, McCoy said, County Commission Chairman Chris Cohilas suggested placing a monument at the county-owned site, and the gazebo area became the natural spot to place it.

    Success! An email has been sent to with a link to confirm list signup.

    Error! There was an error processing your request.

    We had to do something that would have meaning so their lives would be remembered forever, McCoy said. May it serve as a reminder for years and decades to come that they are still with you.

    Cohilas recalled taking a group from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources on a tour of the site less than a week before the tornado struck and the contrast to the storms aftermath.

    The place looked absolutely beautiful; the water was pristine, he said. It was fascinating, and it was beautiful, and then five days later

    I remember being overwhelmed and overcome by the destruction. I was awestruck by how much devastation could happen so fast.

    The memorial is intended to be part of the renewal of the area near the blue hole spring, the largest natural spring in the state and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia. The gazebo area includes benches and will be a place for reflection.

    The county is dedicated to the renovation of the park, which includes recreation and exercise facilities, for years to come, Cohilas said.

    Today is a happy day, he said. It is also a somber day because we are remembering and acknowledging those citizens who lost their lives. While we celebrate the refurbishing of Radium Springs, (I) think we should also remember and keep in our hearts our citizens who died that day.

    Our hope for this memorial is it will serve as an eternal reminder, not only to the lives that were lost but to the spirit of Dougherty County. This is publicly owned space. It is available to anyone, and I think that is very important.

    The spring and much of the surrounding land is owned by the state, while the county owns the site where the former casino stood and an adjacent park.

    Dougherty County Coroner Michael Fowler recalled one detail of when he arrived in the area after the storm a child of 2 or 3 who was alone and dressed only in a T-shirt.

    He was asking: Wheres my mama? he said.

    This community lost on that day a father, a brother, a friend, a neighbor, Dougherty County Commissioner Victor Edwards said. This memorial will not restore your loved one, but it will stand as a symbol of love to your loved one. To the family members, I hope today this will bring a smile and happy thought of the family member you lost.

    Sound off: How best to extend the life and usefulness of outdoor living spaces – Thehour.com - October 23, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Sound off: How best to extend the life and usefulness of outdoor living spaces

    With autumn at hand and an eye on the pandemic, you may be more than ready to enhance and extend the life and usefulness of your outdoor space.

    Installing, expanding or sprucing up a patio or deck, or adding an outdoor fireplace, gazebo or pergola can contribute to home value. Changing the cushions on outdoor furniture, or having garden furniture restored can refresh the spirit, as well as the seasonal ambiance.

    Heat lamps and solar in-ground lights are welcoming add-ons, while landscaping or focal-point nighttime illumination could turn a property into a wonderland in any season.

    To bring the outside in, consider adding the sunroom or four-season solarium youve been dreaming about, or maybe put in sliders where theres now only a door. For youngsters, a treat could be a jungle gym, playhouse or treehouse or all three. Hang some bird feeders to captivate kids and adults, as well as the birds.

    If you have a level area in your yard, explore the do-it-yourself route or kits for making ice-skating rinks. Or build low stone-wall seating around a fire pit, for comfort and character while roasting marshmallows.

    Garden centers and nurseries can provide solutions for your outdoor living spaces. Fall is the time for planting colorful springtime gardens. Cool-season veggies, such as lettuce, kale, beets and spinach planted now can yield a third-season harvest. At McArdles Florist and Garden Center and around the world, edible gardening is hot. Flowers that attract butterflies can teach kids the joy of gardening. Butterfly bushes, coneflowers and phlox are among pollinators whose flat petals serve as landing pads for butterflies and bees, needed for cross pollination. No bees? No zucchini, according to Mary Jo Bridge Palmer of Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses.

    You may also want to deer-proof gardens. A good way to start, according to Bridge Palmer, is to install four-foot post-and-wire fence, a size that deer tend not to jump. A smaller foot-high fence outside of the taller fence can outwit rabbits and woodchucks.

    If your outdoor space is sparse, container gardening may be your enhancement ticket to homegrown tomatoes, potatoes, herbs and flowers. For balconies and spaces in want of privacy, planters with tall supports for flowering vines can create splendid screens.

    Thanet council to end contract with Ramsgate Market organiser and invite bids to create ‘Canterbury’ style stalls – The Isle of Thanet News - October 17, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Ramsgate market Photo Maxine Morgan

    Thanet council is planning an overhaul to Ramsgate Market to create a new Canterbury style format with gazebos and themed days.

    The arrangement with the current organiser, organiser Hughmark, is to be ended with the contract going out to tender.

    The market shut when covid restrictions were brought in during March. It briefly reopened in June but issues around placement meant the market closed again. A new site proposed for Pier Yard car park on the seafront was scuppered at the 11th hour.

    Traders were finally given the go-ahead to use Staffordshire Street car park, taking space in several disabled parking bays.

    But there was a drop in traders taking part on Fridays and none willing to set up for business at the site on Saturdays.

    The low number of stall meant falling income, with Hughmark making a decision to cease trade in the town.

    The cost in business rates to Thanet council for the market each year is 16,604. The market operator is expected to pay TDC alf of the net income. However, there has was not a profit to split during August and September with the market making losses.

    A report to Thanet council Cabinet members, who are due to meet next week, says: As the market operator is no longer able to operate the Staffordshire Street market due to a decrease in traders willing to participate in the market, alternative locations for the market have been considered, but they would not comply with existing COVID restrictions.

    The council acknowledges the benefits of a diverse market on the local community, consumers and traders alike and remains determined to restore a market in Ramsgate. It is therefore proposed to market the opportunity in a new format -Canterbury Model with diverse themes on different days, high-quality goods, coordinating gazebos), and subsequently extend the exercise to local tender to grant a service concession contract to operate the new market.

    Cabinet members are expected to agree to cease the arrangement with Hughmark in favour of a new operator.

    The procurement of the new market will be developed within the next six months with consideration given to the location, potential COVID-19

    Restrictions and diversity of market goods with periods of specialist markets such as for Halloween, Christmas and Easter.

    The report says: As part of the new market development exercise, the council will engage with Ramsgate Town Council as well as welcome input from all potential vendors.

    Cabinet members will discuss the issue on October 22.

    Minister Flags Off Exports Worth Rp10.68 Billion to US, Europe – Tempo.co English - October 17, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Minister of Trade, Agus Suparmanto, kicked off the dispatch of 25 containers of goods, worth Rp10.68 billion, meant for export at the Jogja Expo Center (JEC) on October 16-17, 2020.

    The goods were shipped to the US and Europe by eight Yogyakarta companies.

    These exports show that domestically made products are of high quality and are able to compete in the international market. Besides, it demonstrates that Indonesian products are able to withstand the pandemic and the global economic slowdown, the minister said in a statement here on Saturday.

    The 25 containers were shipped in two stages. In the first stage, four containers of women's lingerie and sportswear from PT Busana Remaja Agracipta were exported to the United States, one container of home decoration products from CV Palem Craft was exported to Belgium, and one container of furniture products from Aurum Furniture was sent to France.

    In addition, one container of consolidated outdoor exterior products from Yogya Gazebo, MD Craft, and Belindo was exported to France, Spain, and Belgium, one container of furniture from CV Jaroe Design was sent to Germany, and nine containers of home decor products from PT Out of Asia were exported the United States.

    In the second stage, eight containers of handicrafts and home decorations products from PT Out of Asia were exported to the United States on Saturday (October 17, 2020).

    Women's lingerie and sportswear produced by PT Busana Remaja Agracipta are headed to global brands such as Victorias Secret, H&M, Wacoal, and Marks & Spencer. The company has emerged as one of the largest intimate product manufacturers and exporters in the world, the minister said.

    Agus also said that Aurum Furniture, Yogya Gazebo, MD Craft, Belindo, and CV Palm Craft are being promoted by the Ministry of Trade through the Designers Dispatch Service Program of the Indonesia Design Development Center (IDDC) .

    Creativity, innovation, and the ability to seize opportunities to meet market tastes are the keys to success in penetrating the export market. One of these principles is applied by CV Jaroe Design, which uses wood waste to make export-value furniture, he noted.
