AGELESS WISDOM

first_img AGELESS WISDOMBy Jim RedwineWhen Jeanne and Nathan Maudlin as representatives of New Harmony, Indiana’s Working Men’s Institute  that along with the University of Southern Indiana and the New Harmony Kiwanis Club is helping sponsor this year’s New Harmony Fourth of July celebration asked me to speak, my first thought was to research prior speeches. I am a judge after all and precedent is important to me. Jeanne graciously sent me a copy of the excellent book, New Harmony’s Fourth of July Tradition, by Donald Pitzer and Josephine Elliott.The book includes verbatim Fourth of July speeches given by Robert Owen (1826), William Owen (1827) and Frances (Mad Fanny) Wright (1828). Each talk contains observations and advice that address issues that could have been found on the front pages of today’s newspapers or on T.V. news programs. War and peace, racial problems, women’s rights, religious discrimination and freedom of thought and action are exposited clearly.Independence as declared on July 04, 1776 and our country’s often slow and incremental progress toward accomplishing the ideals encapsulated in our Constitution are referenced or implied in each address. As Frances Wright explained, the genius of our Founders was they gave us a government that we could change if we needed and wanted. Mad Fanny was called mad in 1828 because she called for freedom from religion, freedom for enslaved Negroes, equality for women and liberty from wars of aggression for the United States of America and all other countries. As not so mad Fanny might observe today, America has made substantial progress toward these ideals through incremental, democratic, constitutional change. Of course, we still have work to do.In his address on July 04, 1827 William Owen, Robert’s twenty-five year old son, concentrated on the evils of superstition and bloody wars of aggression as egged on by various religions. And William Owen thanked the heroes of July 04, 1776 for fighting for our liberty and freedom of speech:“Are we prepared to exercise the right, as we enjoy the power, secured to us by the heroesof the revolution, of expressing our thoughts openly and sincerely? Are we willing to runthe risks they encountered? Are we ready like them to meet the prejudices of past times, torisk name and reputation in the cause of truth, – in defense of the honest expression of ouropinions?”William both recognized the sacrifices made by our Founders and cautioned of the repercussions should we fail to follow our own Constitution:“Man had been slowly but gradually freeing himself from that thraldom in which he wasso long enslaved, when our ancestors, on that day, the anniversary of which we thismorning celebrate, by one bold step recovered that state of liberty and independence, whichis the birthright of humanity, and gave a death blow, to the unnatural league betweendespotism and superstition, by the adoption of a Constitution, which forever precludes, solong as adhered to, the recurrence of such an unhappy connection.”Robert Owen, whose vision of humanity and equality was the bedrock of the secular commune of New Harmony, 1825-1828 (c), on July 04, 1826 fearlessly stated his view as to the root cause of the world’s evils:“Religion, or Superstition – for all religions have proved themselves to be Superstitions, –by destroying the judgment, irrationalized all the mental faculties of man, and made himthe most abject slave, through the fear of non-entities created solely by his own disorderedimagination.”Owen was a wealthy industrialist who cared about his workers and their families. He put in place many of the better conditions of employment that eventually were adopted by the United States of America, and other countries. Owen fought for women’s equality, freedom from religion and the avoidance of wars of aggression. And along with numerous other idealists such as his own sons, William Maclure of the Working  Men’s Institute fame and Frances Wright, Robert Owen established a legacy that all of us in Posey County should treasure.Gentle Reader, if you wish to help carry on New Harmony’s Fourth of July traditions of celebrating our Independence, the festivities begin the morning of July 04, 2019 at the Atheneum in New Harmony. Peg and I plan to be there and look forward to the reading of the Declaration of Independence by our friend Chuck Minnette as well as a golf cart parade, hot dogs and patriotic music. Hope to see you there. Happy birthday!For more Gavel Gamut articles go to www.jamesmredwine.comOr “Like” us on Facebook at JPegRanchBooks&KnittingFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

FARC Leader Surrenders

first_imgBy Dialogo November 02, 2010 The military commander of Front 44 of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), “Ciro Pereza” or “Ciro Cañón,” has demobilized and turned himself in together with another seven followers, the Colombian Armed Forces confirmed. According to the official report, the surrender comes in response to “the strong offensive being pursued by the troops of the Fourth Division in the jungles of the Guaviare.” The army emphasized that “Ciro Pereza” was the commander of the public-order company and the second-ranking leader of Front 44 and that he surrendered together with “Ricardo Pompis,” the head of the finance commission, “Mateo,” “Abel,” and “Samuel,” as others of the FARC guerrillas who decided to lay down their arms were identified. The information made public following the surrender of “Ciro Pereza” revealed that the guerrilla had been in the FARC for fourteen years and was responsible for the security of one of the terrorist organization’s chief leaders, known by the alias “Albeiro Córdoba.” The surrender of “Ciro Pereza” also paved the way for the surrender of guerrillas known by the aliases “Damaris,” his romantic partner, and “Bricelda,” in Puerto Alvira. The head of Front 44’s finance commission, known by the alias “Ricardo Pompis,” and a member of the terrorist organization’s militia, known by the alias “Omar,” also laid down their arms, according to the armed forces, who emphasized that “Ciro Pereza” had around two hundred guerrillas under him.last_img read more

UN Calls to Include Countering Illicit Drug Trade on Development Agenda

first_img Fedotov noted that as developing countries emulate the lifestyles of industrialized nations, drug consumption will probably increase, placing a heavier burden on countries ill equipped to deal with burgeoning drug demand. International support should therefore aim at strengthening the capacity of vulnerable nations to confront that challenge, he said. Fedotov said that with the 2015 deadline approaching to take stock of global progress towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), there is an increasing recognition that organized crime and illicit drugs impede the attainment of those goals. “Heroin, cocaine and other drugs continue to kill around 200,000 people a year, shattering families and bringing misery to thousands of other people, insecurity and the spread of HIV,” the Executive Director of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), Yury Fedotov, told the General Assembly today, during a special thematic debate on drugs and crime as a threat to development. “At present, only around one quarter of all farmers involved in illicit drug crop cultivation worldwide have access to development assistance – if we are to offer new opportunities and genuine alternatives, this needs to change,” Fedotov said. The Assembly’s debate coincides with the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, observed on 26 June, and was also the forum for Fedotov’s launch of UNODC’s flagship study, the 2012 World Drug Report. In addition, lower overall levels of cultivation and production of opium and coca have been offset by rising levels of synthetic drug production. Highlighting the impact of drug abuse around the world, the head of the United Nations anti-drugs office today said that countering transnational organized crime and illicit drugs must become an integral part of the development agenda. The 2012 World Drug Report finds that although global patterns of illicit drug use, production and health consequences largely remained stable in 2012, opium production had rebounded to previous high levels in Afghanistan, the world’s biggest opium producer. Around 230 million people, or five per cent of the world’s adult population, aged 15 to 64, are estimated to have used an illicit drug at least once in 2010, according to the Report. Problem drug users, mainly heroin- and cocaine-dependent persons, number about 27 million, roughly 0.6 per cent of the world adult population, or 1 in every 200 people. The UNODC chief said that drug-producing and drug-consuming countries alike have a stake in fighting the illicit drug trade, adding that Governments should not forget that illicit drugs also affect health and security globally.

New rules address insurance practice and ancillary business

first_imgNew rules address insurance practice and ancillary business New rules address insurance practice and ancillary business Senior Editor Lawyers now have guidance when operating ancillary businesses, and paralegals and legal assistants must work for attorneys if they want to use those titles, following action by the Supreme Court.The court, acting on the Bar’s annual package of amendments to the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar, also approved a landmark statement of rights for clients represented by attorneys hired by insurance companies and, as part of the paralegal rule, gave lawyers more latitude in assigning work to their nonlawyer staff.The justices ruled April 25 in Amendments to Rules Regulating The Florida Bar, case no. SC01-1409. Except for changing a comment on one rule involving hearing officers on discipline cases and on another rule to incorporate language agreed to by the Bar and Florida Lawyers Assistance, Inc., the court adopted the rules as submitted by the Bar.On the ancillary business issue, the Bar proposed new Rule 4-5.7 that lawyers engaging in ancillary businesses be bound by all the Rules of Professional Conduct unless the client is advised, preferably in writing, that the ancillary services are not legal work and the protections of the attorney-client relationship does not apply. The court noted it received comment from Tim Chinaris, former Bar ethics counsel and now a law professor, who urged that the written disclosure be made mandatory, noting there were such requirements in other parts of the rule.While the Bar agreed a written disclosure would be better, it took the position there was no guarantee a written explanation would be understood by clients. The Bar also said it did not want to discipline unwary lawyers who failed to provide the written notice but who made a good faith oral explanation to clients.The opinion noted the Bar studied the issue for more than two years and looked at what other states had done, before settling on a rule similar to one in Pennsylvania which recommends but does not mandate written disclosure.“Based on its years of study, we defer to the Bar in this matter,” the opinion said. “Should the court learn that problems have developed because written disclosures have not been provided, we will consider amending [the rule] to mandate the written disclosure.”Bar President Terry Russell said the ancillary business rule is important because it’s the second half of the Bar’s response to the multidisciplinary practice/ancillary business issue. The Bar already has opposed MDPs, saying they would compromise the core values of the profession by allowing nonlawyers to share fees and control legal decisions. “The proposed rule and the corresponding comment,” Russell said, “will give lawyers and law firms important guidance on how to do that [ancillary work] without running afoul of the rules and protecting the public.”He added that it was gratifying the court deferred to the Bar on the written disclosure issue.The court approved the addition of subsection (j) to Rule 4-1.8. The product of the Insurance Practices Special Study Committee, it requires that lawyers hired by insurance companies to represent policyholders give those clients a statement of rights regarding their representation.It discusses conflicts of interest, that the insurance company under most policies will direct the attorney’s actions, confidentiality, and other issues. The insurance industry supported the rule change.Board of Governors member David Bianchi, who chaired the special committee, said it is a landmark rule. “It is a fine document that we can all be proud of,” he said. “It is the first of its kind in the country and many states are now likely to follow suit.. . . In the years to come it will prove to be one of the Bar’s most practical and useful public services.”Russell said the ruling is the Bar’s first attempt at addressing the 30-year-old issue of insurance companies hiring staff counsel to represent policyholders, and related matters. He noted that a second special insurance study committee — which looked at staff counsel using firm-like names, among other topics — recently completed its work and the Bar will shortly be submitting additional rules to the court.“When we get those two things together, I think we’re going to have pretty close to a full resolution of issues that have been generated by the three-decade-old practice of insurance companies using staff counsel,” Russell said.(The Bar rules opinion came less than a week after the court issued an order on an 11th Circuit judge’s orders affecting insurance counsel appearing before him. See story elsewhere in this News. )Changes to Rule 4-5.3 have impacts not only on lawyers and the legal practice, but nonlawyers who provide legal services. Russell said the changes came from a special committee that he chaired, appointed by former Bar President John Frost.One part of the rules specifies that “A person who uses the title of paralegal, legal assistant, or other similar term when offering or providing services to the public must work for or under the direction or supervision of a lawyer or an authorized business entity as defined elsewhere in these Rules Regulating The Florida Bar.”It also adds language on lawyer supervision of nonlawyer employees by providing that paralegals and legal assistants may perform duties delegated to them by an attorney without that attorney being present or actively involved. But the rule also provides that “the lawyer shall review and be responsible for the work product of the paralegals or legal assistants.”The comment to the rule states: “If an activity requires the independent judgment and participation of the lawyer, it cannot be properly delegated to a nonlawyer employee.”The rule came from the committee’s “desire to make it easier for lawyers to deliver legal services more efficiently and therefore more cheaply through expanding use of paralegals,” Russell said. The rule recognizes what has been the practice in many offices and also promotes what he dubbed the “Sherrie Marcus model,” after the Miami Beach attorney who uses paralegals to interview family-law clients and do much of the work, with Marcus reviewing all documents and other actions.The UPL aspect of the rule came after the committee did a survey which showed that most Floridians think people who call themselves paralegals or legal assistants have special training and abilities and work for attorneys. Russell said many people have been duped and harmed by the confusion, and those who don’t work for attorneys will have to call themselves legal document typists or some other name that more accurately reflects their function.The rules provides “a UPL enforcement rule for the unauthorized practice of law by people who call themselves paralegals or legal assistants but who do not work under the supervision of an attorney. That will now become per se the unauthorized practice of law,” Russell said.Changes were also made to Rule 10-2.1 (which governs unlicensed practice of law issues) to correspond to the alterations to Rule 4-5.3.The only changes made by the court to the Bar’s submission involved Rule 1-3.2(b) and Rule 3-7.6. The Bar and Florida Lawyers Assistance, Inc., agreed on a change to the former rule that recognized, in proceedings involving conditionally admitted members, that some of those lawyers have diseases such as addiction or psychological impairments. On the latter rule, the court added a comment seeking that reports from grievance referees be as detailed as possible “so this court will not have to speculate about referees’ findings and recommendations or ask for clarification.”The complete text of the opinion and the rules amendments are on the court’s Web site at www.flcourts.org.

Despite reopening, Waverly businesses still feel impacts of COVID-19 shutdown

first_img“Long term right now, we do know we will lose some business. There’s going to be some that won’t be able to reopen, some that are already closed,” he says. WAVERLY (WBNG) — For many small businesses in Waverly, the impacts of March’s COVID-19 shutdown are still fresh. Now restaurant owners like Lisa Lee who owns Lisa’s Place, also on Broad Street, say it’s time to play catch up. She says differing rules between the Pennsylvania side and the New York side can make things confusing for customers, and mask requirements can also make things difficult. VanNorman says the biggest part of the hit came earlier in the Pandemic. Some of the damage stemmed from the fact that Waverly straddles the New York-Pennsylvania border and businesses on the other side in places like Sayre, Pa. didn’t have to follow the same restrictions as those in New York. Josh Cassidy is one of those small business owners. He runs The Rail House on Broad Street. “Our long term goal is to figure out the sustainability of what businesses we have. Make sure they can remain viable, and then try to reinvigorate people to open new businesses to stimulate the growth of the economy in this area,” he said. “If things don’t get back to normal, it could be devastating,” he says. “Ninety- five percent of the businesses in this area are small businesses, and without them, our community is just going to dwindle down to nothing. I can see people moving away.” “For the most part our dine-in area has been a little bit slow, but we’re still doing good on takeouts,” Lee added, “I mostly want to get rid of the masks, I just want to see things go back no normal.” “Businesses and restaurants took a severe hit in the few weeks that Pennsylvania opened up in-house dining, versus New York still being at a lower phase with New York only able to do takeout,” he says. VanNorman says that’s going to take work. “We’re just following the status quo and trying to get through this the best we can. It’s a struggle,” he said. Cameron VanNorman is President of The Waverly Business Association. He says he shares those fears. In the meantime, Cassidy is hopeful things will change soon. last_img read more

Unfortunately, the segment of continental camps needs to be further strengthened, and today continental camps account for only about 2% of total camping nights.In 2018, a total of 19,1 million overnight stays and 2,9 million departures were realized in campsites (an increase in overnight stays by 1,1% and arrivals by 2,7% compared to last year), while the main markets are Germany, Slovenia and Austria. , The Netherlands and Italy.Observing the prices in the camps, according to the analysis of the prices of the camps of Europe by the German ADAC, two adults with a ten-year-old child pay 40,92 euros per night in Croatia, and thus Croatia is in 5th place in terms of camping. Italy is more expensive, at 46,35 euros, but Spain (39,94 euros) and France (36,55 euros) are cheaper.At the same time, Croatia is today at the top of Europe when we talk about the average quality of camps, and 2018 is especially significant because 2 new camps with 5 * were opened (in Istria camp Santa Marina and on Krk camp Omišalj), and the first Croatian The 100% glamping camp, Arena One 99 Glamping camp in Pula, is pointed out by the Croatian Camping Association (KUH) and added that the investment cycle continues.”In 2018, our camping offer was enriched with the first tree houses (camp Plitvice Holiday Resort near the Plitvice Lakes National Park). However, the investment process continues so that in 2019 we can announce the opening of a new camp with 5 *, Istria Premium Camping Resort in Istria, and many other camps will continue to invest in increasing quality.”They conclude from KUH.The largest annual gathering of Croatian camping will be an opportunity to summarize this year’s results, but the most important thing is to discuss new trends and products that improve the service in campsites.

Sugar dies

first_imgMOUNT KISCO, N.Y. (AP)—Bert Sugar, an iconic boxing writer and sports historian who was known for his trademark fedora and ever-present cigar, died Sunday of cardiac arrest. He was 75.
