    Umatilla River Flooding | Umatilla County transitions into recovery operations – East Oregonian - February 21, 2020 by admin

    UMATILLA COUNTY Umatilla County has transitioned its emergency operations center into recovery operations and reduced staffing, according to a Thursday press release.

    The county will continue to coordinate with municipalities, volunteer organizations and other agencies, the release said, but the phone lines at the emergency operations center will no longer be staffed.

    Those in need of assistance should contact the Community Action Plan of East Central Oregon for donations at 541-276-1926, or an American Red Cross caseworker for immediate needs, such as food or clothing, at 541-215-2908.

    Those who need help with debris cleanup or mold remediation can visit http://www.crisiscleanup.org or call 844-965-1386.

    Roads in the Mill Creek area on Oregon's side of the border remain closed but are expected to be reopened on Friday, according to the release. Walla Walla River Road remains closed to all but local residents and emergency personnel. Bingham Road and others along the Umatilla River are now open up to Meacham Creek, and Cayuse Road is open to Thorn Hollow.

    Discovery Elementary poised to welcome West students, staff – Grand Forks Herald - February 21, 2020 by admin

    She is looking forward to greeting students and staff from a school where she served as principal for several years, before becoming Discoverys principal in 2014.

    I have nothing but positive memories and connections with people at West," said Parkinson, adding it feels wonderful to welcome the West contingent.

    West students will go to school at Discovery starting March 2, but their teachers and classmates will be the same -- their classrooms are moving intact to the new site. That was the goal, school district administrators said, as they searched for an alternate location for West students and staff after high levels of mold were detected in the school in late January and made evacuation necessary.

    About 30 staff members and 90 students at West, a school near University Park, will relocate to Discovery Elementary School on 43rd Avenue South. The students are in kindergarten and grades two through five. West does not have a first grade at this time.

    Discovery, which opened in August 2015, was built as a five-section school, meaning five classrooms for each grade, but is operating four sections per grade, said Parkinson, who served one year as principal while Discovery was in the planning stage.

    To accommodate the West students, Discovery classrooms are being moved into spaces occupied by itinerant teachers, who, like the Spanish teacher, do not teach fulltime in the school.

    At a meeting Wednesday, Feb. 19, at West, an audience of about 80 parents and others heard details of an evacuation plan -- and what it will mean for their families -- presented by school district officials.

    West students will not all be together at Discovery, but each West classroom will be kept intact and located in an area with the same grade-level classrooms, said Jody Thompson, associate superintendent of elementary education for the Grand Forks school district.

    West teachers visited Discovery on Wednesday to see where their classrooms will be located, and an open house for West parents and students to visit the school is planned for 3 to 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28. If parents cannot be present at that time, Thompson said, Discovery staff will welcome them when they can visit.

    Thompson asked parents if the West school could be closed on Thursday, Feb. 27, to allow teachers to prepare their new classrooms at Discovery; parents agreed. That will give teachers two days to prepare, he said, since Friday has already been set aside as a professional development day. That Thursday would not have to be made up as a school day, he said.

    About 40 children in the Early Childhood Special Education program at West will relocate to Phoenix Elementary School, which also has an ECSE classroom, Superintendent Terry Brenner said at the meeting.

    In response to a question from the audience, Brenner emphasized that the move to West does not constitute a hidden agenda.

    Theres no conspiracy theory; theres no plan the superintendent has to close West, he assured parents.

    School district administrators considered about a dozen venues as an alternate location for West, including churches near West and elsewhere, Brenner said.

    The decision was narrowed to Discovery based on the availability of a sufficient number of classrooms, licensed kitchen, meeting rooms for teachers, office space for administrators, indoor and outdoor space for physical activity and music room, Brenner said.

    Discovery, which has an enrollment of about 500, was seen as ideal because of its separate vehicle lanes for student drop-off and pick-up, access to technology and a push-to-talk security system at the building entrance.

    West students who will move to Discovery include 18 in kindergarten, 17 in second grade, 12 in third grade, 21 in fourth grade and 18 in fifth grade, Parkinson said.

    How long the West students and teachers will be housed at Discovery is unknown at this time, because the extent of the problem is not yet known, Thompson said at Wednesdays meeting.

    The inspection at West revealed a type of mold that is typically known as black mold, said Chris Arnold, director of buildings and grounds for Grand Forks Public Schools. And Im not comfortable with the potential for a wet spring.

    The mold poses too great a health risk to allow West to continue to function as a learning environment while remediation work is in progress, Arnold said in response to a parents question about the need for evacuation.

    Arnold said he does know yet the extent of the mold problem at West -- and wont until walls are opened and interiors examined.

    Arnold and his colleagues want to address the reasons why youre getting mold in this building, he said, but cautioned that the project will require patience.

    The mold remediation project is going to be extensive, its going to be costly, and its going to take us time to get you guys back up.

    Parents appeared to be satisfied with the information they received from school officials.

    Im glad theyre fixing the problem and getting West to where it needs to be, and we can be back and start fresh next year, said Tracey Taylor, a West parent.

    Her daughter, Sheylynn, 9, said she is nervous about attending a different school, when asked about her feelings after the meeting.

    Shes a third-grader in Mrs. Raymonds class, Taylor said. She loves going to school at West.

    Like many parents who spoke in Wednesdays meeting, Taylor expressed concern about transportation.

    We live right across the street from West, so she walks to school, she said. Itll be a change, but well get through it.

    Free bus transportation, to and from Discovery, will be available for West students who live in the schools attendance area, Thompson said.

    West parents will be contacted by the district to provide information for bag tags, which will help to assure that each child is dropped off at the right location.

    In an email Parkinson sent to Discovery parents Wednesday informing them of the changes to accommodate the transition, she said, We are one district, and being one district means that we look out for each other, which is exactly why this is the right thing to do.

    Each school is unique, and our goal is to allow each school to flourish in their own way while being housed in the same building, she said.

    After the email was sent, she said, my inbox was inundated with Discovery parents asking what they can do to help and commenting on how wonderful this is for our community.

    Parkinson is planning to have extra staff on hand before and after school to make sure all students are dropped off and picked up safely, she said.

    Adding 89 new students and 25 West staff members to Discovery will be an adjustment, she said. I see it as an opportunity to honor the West community and the Discovery community and to find ways to learn from each other.

    She is intent, she said, on having this be a positive experience for everybody.

    Voters in Stockton Springs will decide the fate of an abandoned school – Bangor Daily News - February 21, 2020 by admin

    The Stockton Springs Elementary School.

    STOCKTON SPRINGS, Maine Voters here will go to the polls next month to decide whether they want to authorize selectpeople to sell the former town elementary school.

    The 1970s building is known to have a mold problem and town officials say it would cost between $100,000 and $225,000 for remediation. A meeting held earlier this month to discuss the school drew more than 60 people, according to Town Manager Jennifer King, who said most seemed disinclined to authorize its sale.

    I can see potential, said Leslie Devine, who lives close to the property. I like to investigate before I make a big decision. It feels like Im being asked to make a big decision and then investigate.

    Its not the first vote that Stockton Springs has made regarding the Church Street property. After Regional School Unit 20 board members learned the extent of the mold and the potential cost of the remediation, they offered the school as a free gift to the towns of Searsport and Stockton Springs.

    Last June, Searsport voters turned it down. But in Stockton Springs, voters said yes.

    We took it as is, King said. We were told we couldnt enter the building because the mold was so terrible.

    It was bad, she said, but further tests indicated the problem wasnt as extensive as initially reported. Town officials have made improvements. They fixed the leak in the ceiling, which caused mold spores to spread, King said. They hauled out everything from moldy library books to gym equipment to food that had been left in the cafeteria. They also aired out the building, by opening the doors in the summer and fall, and started running an air-exchange unit.

    We have not turned that off, she said, adding that these efforts likely could have lessened the problem if enacted earlier. [The school district] just didnt do it any justice. They failed the people who pay taxes to keep that school standing, because that school would have been a wonderful asset to the town, had they not let the mold grow.

    Residents Ryan King and Sarah Faragher, who also live close to the school, believe it still could be an asset. They cite Orland as a positive example of how an abandoned school can be redeveloped. The former elementary school there has become the Orland Community Center, which is home to a commercial community kitchen, a fitness center, event space and rental office and business space.

    The selectpeople at the meetings came across as being very afraid of a disaster happening at the school, Faragher said. Theyre acting from a place of fear versus the possibilities.

    Faragher and Ryan King were among about 15 who volunteered to serve on a strategic planning committee to look at potential uses of the school if voters choose to keep it.

    We want to make sure we as a town make the right decision and not rush it, he said. Make sure were not short-sighted.

    But Jennifer King, the town manager, said that the board of selectpeople has asked for this vote as part of the process of determining the schools future.

    Its a stepping stone, she said.

    Last fall, residents were surveyed about what they wanted to do with the school, and the majority of the 87 who responded said they wanted to sell some or all of the property, she said. Multiple prospective buyers have inquired about the property, including a man who is interested in creating an assisted-living facility there.

    He has been waiting patiently for the town to make its decision, she said. Thats another reason we have been trying to move forward.

    No matter what voters decide, she hopes that they come out to the polls in force on Tuesday, March 3.

    Whether its a yes or no, I want it to be strongly voiced, so that we all can move forward with the decision, Jennifer King said. So we can figure out together whats best.

It also has adequate space for graduation ceremonies and other large community events such as the annual performance of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.

    The 10th Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church has been working since 2016 to restore and reopen the historic Richard Allen Chapel on the campus of Paul Quinn College in South Dallas. The first phase of renovation began in April 2019, with asbestos and mold remediation, where more than 11 tons of material and waste was removed.

    The chapel dedication will take place during the annual Founders Day Celebration of the 10th Episcopal District of the AME Church. Services will start on Thursday, February 20, 2020 in the Richard Allen Chapel. Dr. Ralph D. West, pastor of the Church Without Walls in Houston and Dr. Freddie Haynes, pastor of Friendship West Baptist Church in Dallas will be preaching on the opening night. The praise team from Friendship West, the 10th District choirs and the Paul Quinn College Choir, will be providing the music.

    Bishop John Richard Bryant, retired Senior Bishop of the AME Church, former Chair of the Board of Trustees of Paul Quinn College and former presiding Bishop of the 10th District, will preach the dedication sermon on Friday, February 21st. The Unity Choir of Dallas, composed of multi-generational, multi-ethnic members will be the featured musical artists, along with the combined choir members of Paul Quinn and 10th District Choir. The Founders Day celebration concludes on Saturday, February 22nd, starting at 10 a.m. at the Anatole Hilton Hotel in Dallas. Bishop Preston W. Williams, retired Commission Chair of Higher Education, willbring the closing message.

    All events are free and open to the public. For more information, visitwww.10thdistrictame.org

    7 Telltale Signs of Water Damage in Your Home – The Rock Father Magazine - February 21, 2020 by admin

    About 90% of American homeowners surveyed stated that it's important to have a home inspection before moving in. And yet, many of us fail to investigate homes we've lived in for years for evidence of serious damage. It's critical to pay attention to signs of water damage. Not only can this type of damage have significant effects on the value of your home and the protection of your belongings, but it can have major health consequences, too. Mold, for instance, can grow and spread just 48 hours after the formation of a leak, which can lead to the need for expensive remediation -- and if left unaddressed, it can put your well-being at risk.

    To that end, here are seven signs of water damage you should look for every two months, as well as the risks involved if you don't get them fixed as soon as possible.

    Many homeowners don't notice changes to structural elements. They are hard to spot in familiar surroundings, even if you're diligent about cleaning and upkeep. Some of the first warning signs of damage caused by water include bubbles or peeling in wallpaper or paint. Eventually, these will take on a swollen or warped appearance. If water damage is especially severe, ceilings and walls can acquire a sponge-like feel.

    Pools of water that return after you clean them up are obvious signs of a leak. Water-damaged floors may not be immediately apparent, particularly if the wetness is evident only in corners or in spaces that don't see much foot traffic. By the time you spot wet carpet or peeling tile, there may be damage underneath. In advanced cases, carpets may feel spongy or waterlogged. Tiles made of ceramic materials often develop mold and cracks in the grout when damaged by water. Tiles made of linoleum and vinyl show cracks and peeling. Floors made of laminate and wood can buckle, cup, and warp.

    Look for discolored or dark patches on your ceilings and the inside and outside walls, as these are common signs of leaks. You should also inspect the drywall on your walls and ceilings for bubbles, flakes, and cracks.

    Slow, steady leaks frequently result in stains, whereas mold grows in places that stay damp over time. Water stains are typically yellowish-brown and form irregular shapes around the source of the leak. They are most commonly found in bathrooms, basements, and laundry rooms, or other spaces that see considerable water flow or that have a larger plumbing network. Stains are signs that a leak stems from a plumbing fixture. They take shape as the wet areas dry out and get wet repeatedly over time.

    Mold is a fungus that spreads through the air and needs consistent moisture to grow. Drywall, ceilings, carpeting, and wood are common sources of mold if they are allowed to stay wet. Mold is most frequently seen in bathrooms, kitchens, basements, and other spaces where water buildup might not be detected right away. Mold can cause health problems, such as worsening allergy symptoms and even respiratory infections. If you spot stains or mold in your home, it's likely that there's extensive water damage that needs to be taken care of.

    Water damage isn't always visible, but it might make noticeable sounds. Drips, creaks in the floorboards, and the sound of constantly running water may be signs that you need repairs. What's tricky is that they can also be the sounds of a system that's operating smoothly. The noises to be concerned about are those that change over time, as these indicate a change in the flow or force of water. Even small drips can result in holes in your concrete foundation, threatening the structure of your entire home.

    A sudden increase in your water costs could indicate a leak you don't know about. Over 6.5 years, the typical family in the U.S. uses 660,000 gallons of water. Some of this usage could be attributed to plumbing leaks. Keep an eye on your water bill and note any unusual spikes. If the increase cannot be attributed to other causes, it's worth calling a plumber to look into.

    The musty smell attributed to water damage is like the odor of damp cardboard or newspaper. The odor is most potent near the site of the damage. The space might also be humid or damp. If an area of your home smells musty, look it over carefully and see if there are additional signs of water damage, such as stains or mold.

    Older homes often have a range of odors, particularly in attics and basements, but abrupt changes in odor may signal water damage. A new smell in a newer house is unusual and may also indicate water damage. If you detect musty odors soon after a big rain or a winter thaw, you may have damage in your foundation.

    As appliances age, they develop cracks and rust. You may also see a weakening in the hoses. These problems can occur with refrigerators, water heaters, dishwashers, and washing machines, which means that older models should be monitored. In particular, washing machines and hot water tanks are most likely to contribute to water damage.

    Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems also frequently cause water damage. If your air conditioner is not regularly maintained by an HVAC professional, moisture can build up in the unit. That moisture, when cooled, can spark mold growth from spores inside the ducts. Be sure to stay on top of appliance and HVAC maintenance to avoid any issues with water damage down the line.

    Pipes tend to endure over the lifespan of the home, but valves, faucets, and connections typically wear out over the years. Look at those pipes, valves, and faucets that are visible to see if you can spot leaks. With pipes that aren't visible, you can detect problems by listening to the flow of water. Inspect the areas under sinks and near toilets to make sure connecting pipes are in good repair and don't have leaks. Check cabinets for dampness and mold.

    If you spot any of these signs of water damage, call a plumber as soon as possible. Water damage stains furniture and carpets. It also harms the structure of your home, including your foundation, which brings down your property value. Mold and microbial growth pose health risks to you and your family, as well. You need to inspect your home regularly for signs of water damage to protect your family and your property. The longer you wait, the more difficult the damage may be to fix.

    School district leaders call meeting to inform parents on West evacuation – Grand Forks Herald - February 21, 2020 by admin

    Parents of West Elementary School students are invited to a meeting Wednesday, Feb. 19, to discuss the school districts plan for evacuating the school after the discovery of hazardous levels of mold in the schools library and a tunnel.

    The meeting is set for 5 p.m. in the schools gym.

    The date of evacuation and its duration and the temporary location for the school have not been announced. Last week, Jody Thompson, associate superintendent of elementary education, said he planned to announce the new location at this weeks meeting with West parents.

    The mold issue at West came to light after results of an inspection were provided Feb. 3 to the school district by a certified mold inspection company, Nordic Home Inspection, based in Fargo.

    Ten air tests were done throughout the building and three lift tests were conducted to measure mold levels, Chris Arnold, director of buildings and grounds for Grand Forks Public Schools, said. The lift tests revealed extremely high levels of mold, he said.

    The areas with high levels of mold were closed off Feb. 12, Arnold said.

    The Grand Forks School Board held a special meeting Feb. 12 to declare a state of emergency which allows the school district to contract for work on the remediation project without going through the bidding process.

    The mold is the result of last falls excessive rains, said Superintendent Terry Brenner at the School Boards special meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 12.

    In the aftermath of the extraordinary rainfalls, the school districts buildings and grounds crews worked 24/7 shifts, water-vacuuming in the affected schools, Brenner said at that meeting.

    For a new location for West School, school district administrators considered a list of 10 local sites, including churches, which was later narrowed to three sites where visits were conducted, Thompson said.

    Under the evacuation plan, about 130 students, staff members and children in an early childhood special education program will be relocated, he said.

    West parents hear details of school evacuation plan – Grand Forks Herald - February 21, 2020 by admin

    About 30 staff members and 90 students at West, a school near University Park which is being evacuated due to a mold problem revealed through an inspection in late January, will relocate to Discovery Elementary School on 43rd Avenue South.

    An audience of about 80 parents and others who assembled for a meeting Wednesday, Feb. 19, at West heard details of an evacuation plan -- and what it will mean for their families -- presented by school district officials.

    West students will not all be together at Discovery, but each West classroom will be kept intact and located in an area with the same grade-level classrooms, said Jody Thompson, associate superintendent of elementary education for the Grand Forks school district.

    West teachers visited Discovery on Wednesday to see where their classrooms will be located.

    An open house for West parents and students to visit Discovery is planned for 3 to 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28. If parents cannot be present at that time, Thompson said, Discovery staff will welcome them when they can visit.

    About 40 children in the Early Childhood Special Education program at West will relocate to Phoenix Elementary School, which also has an ECSE classroom, Superintendent Terry Brenner said at the meeting.

    The inspection at West revealed a type of mold that is typically known as black mold, said Chris Arnold, director of buildings and grounds for Grand Forks Public Schools. And Im not comfortable with the potential for a wet spring.

    Philly school asbestos tracker: What’s closed and what’s open – Billy Penn - February 21, 2020 by admin

    Reference this list to find out where things stand.

    Asbestos has become a pervasive problem for the Philadelphia School District this academic year. Several of the citys school buildings have been temporarily shut down for remediation after officials discovered exposed toxic material so many that its hard to keep track.

    Teachers say theyve lost confidence in the districts ability to manage the problem, and in January their union sued the School District in January, alleging that Superintendent William Hite repeatedly mishandled problems with asbestos, lead and mold.

    For his part, Mayor Jim Kenney defended the superintendent, saying hes done a terrific job considering the condition of the aging structures that house the citys educational institutions.

    Last month, Gov. Tom Wolf proposed making $1 billion available to schools across Pennsylvania to could mitigate asbestos and lead on their premises.

    In Philly, the bad news started in August 2019, when it was discovered that the freshly renovated building set up to host Benjamin Franklin High School and Science Leadership Academy was full of the toxin. It took until October for the district to admit it needed time to clear the contaminated pipes. Students were temporarily relocated away from Broad and Green while a $13 million cleanup took place.

    Since then, officials have discovered damaged asbestos in eight additional school buildings bringing the total number of schools affected this academic year to 10. Some of the shuttered buildings have reopened, while others have not.

    To help people keep track of the situation, weve created this list as a reference. Well keep it updated throughout the year.
