first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Salt Lake Tribune:Completing a shift to renewable energy, Kennecott Utah Copper will shut down its last coal-fired power plant in Magna, shrinking its carbon footprint by as much as 65% — a total of more than 1 million tons of carbon dioxide a year, according to its owners.Rio Tinto, Kennecott’s corporate parent, announced Wednesday that power to the copper producer will come from 1.5 million megawatt hours of renewable energy certificates purchased from Rocky Mountain Power, which will be primarily sourced from its Utah-allocated portfolio, including wind power generated in Wyoming.The move formalizes a transition that has been underway at Kennecott Utah Copper, which mines and processes copper ore at its vast industrial network on the west side of the Salt Lake Valley, for the past several years, according to spokesman Kyle Bennett.“This ensures we are offsetting the electrical demand we use across our Utah operations with certified renewable energy certificates,” Bennett said. “Rio Tinto wants to be carbon neutral by 2050. Every operation within the portfolio would have to look at ways to achieve that.”Kennecott’s 75-megawatt Unit 4, added in 1960 and idled for the past two years, is the last coal-fired power plant on Utah’s crowded Wasatch Front and perhaps the oldest in Utah.More: Good news for Salt Lake Valley’s air: Kennecott to close its last coal plant, shift to renewable energy Kennecott to close its last coal plant in Utah, switch to renewable energylast_img read more

first_imgKen Holman Good vibes and positively-stoked energy filled the beautifully wooded trails of Pocahontas State Park in Chesterfield, Virginia, at a recent off-road handcycling event organized by the PVA Mid-Atlantic Chapter, that truly exemplifies the incredible spirit of this exceptional group Veterans in Pocahontas State Park Trails and Cycles Program Director John Arbino The adaptive cycles bring new life to the veterans, so they can once again enjoy what they love doing. “A lot of people look down to us in wheelchairs because they think we’re disabled,” said Arbino. “They pity us because they think we can’t take care of ourselves. But when they see us out there on the mountain bike trails… then they realize, “wow”, they’re not disabled, they just passed me on the mountain bike trail!” Holman agrees, “This park has given to our community a part of our lives that was kind of taken away from us, so this park has accommodated us, not only in the trails, but the facilities (the port-o-john), the tent, changing the gravel so the chairs and bikes can maneuver, so we can have opportunities for fellowship with each other.” Jody Shiflett “For me personally, it’s an opportunity to feel a part of the community that I once enjoyed without disability, so this park makes it easy for us to be integrated back into the community doing the things that we love, to keep our health, our sanity, to be part of nature, and enjoy this aspect of our lives,” shared veteran Ken Holman, of Chester, Virginia, about the indescribable bliss of participating in the adaptive trail cycling. Engaging in the forest is salve for the soul, Holman added, “It’s a calming, you know, for those of us that are veterans that suffer from PTSD. It’s a time to reflect, relax, and not worry about the things you can no longer do, but focus on things you can do.” If you want to see courage, inspiration, and excellence face-to-face, you’ve got to meet the resilient, respected athletes with Paralyzed Veterans of America. Shiflett especially thanks Pocahontas State Park for leading the way in accommodating those with disabilities. “The park rangers here are very supportive to our being included. There’s not a lot of off-road opportunities on the East Coast, especially and particularly for people with disabilities, so we’ve been taking advantage of this infrastructure here. So I want to just praise them for…allowing us to have access to this and being supportive, because they have to maintain these trails, and since these certain trails are being maintained to a wider width, well guess what, that probably increased their cost two-fold. They could spend less money and make it narrow, but they’re very accommodating.” That freedom to explore means a lot to these athletes, says Director of Racing and Fitness Jody Shiflett. “You can go where it’s quiet and solemn and run across some wildlife, and just hearing the wind go through the leaves, the brooks, the creeks, it can be meditative, or it could soothe, maybe you have a sense of adventure you’re trying to find.” Pocahontas State Park is well-known for its dedicated group of volunteers, including RVA MORE and Friends of Pocahontas State Park, who give of their time to maintain the trail system at the park and support of the veterans. Adaptive Sports Program Manager John Arbino says events like this are crucial for veterans who’ve been injured. “It gets them back outside again and gets them back in nature and gets them out being part of the community again. We have a lot of people that are able-bodied that are volunteering to support this event. This event is so great to get us back interacting.” Events like this are much appreciated says Holman. “It’s an opportunity for us get together and have fun. We don’t have to worry about the other people who are not accustomed to our bikes and our way of lives. We all have similar problems, and similar injuries so we can relate to each other.” Erin Green, Executive Director of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter Paralyzed Veterans of America hopes what is happening here at Pocahontas State Park, leads to positive change nationwide.“It’s significant because our trails are starting to become more adaptable to individuals with disabilities, and inclusive, and that’s an important part. I think all state parks should look into becoming more adaptable, so our members of the community with disabilities, not just veterans, but civilians as well, can use and get out in nature and utilize the state parks we have in Virginia and the U.S.”last_img read more

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionIn early October 2017, Schenectady Mayor Gary McCarthy and a couple of candidates running for City Council came to my home campaigning. In conversation, I expressed a neighborhood concern. They all agreed it needed attention. The mayor had someone take the information down and told me he would look into the matter. On Oct. 21, I decided to send the mayor a private Facebook message to see when I could expect the matter to be resolved. I received no response. On Dec. 14, I called the mayor’s office and left a voicemail message. Again no response. On Jan. 3, 2018, I left another private Facebook message and got no response.I then called what I thought was the appropriate office at City Hall to voice my concern and was told: “I’ll pass your message onto the office that handles this type of matter.” I asked to please have someone call me regarding the issue. Again, no response. I also emailed two city councilmen and received no responses. Last but certainly not least, on April 19, I sent Councilman Vince Riggi a private Facebook message. Less than an hour later, he responded by telling me he contacted the appropriate office and would follow up with me.On April 26, Councilman Riggi updated me, and days later the problem was resolved. After thanking him for not only helping me but for all he does for the city of Schenectady, his response was, “Always my pleasure to serve Joanne. If there’s anything in the future, do not hesitate to let me know.”Mr. Riggi, you are an asset to the city of Schenectady and you know the true meaning of serving the people you work for.

first_img The newly-appointed director of football failed to make a single permanent signing during the recent transfer window, landing only QPR striker Loic Remy on a season-long loan deal. However Kinnear, who has borne the brunt of fans’ frustration at the lack of activity, insists he worked hard on a series of targets, only to see potential deals break down because of inflated fees or the demands of agents. Press Association Joe Kinnear has defended his role in Newcastle’s difficult summer recruitment mission.center_img Writing in his programme notes ahead of Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash with Hull, he said: “It was very frustrating that we did not add at least another signing to the squad in the recent window, but it was not for lack of effort. “It was not an easy task to improve the quality of the current squad with the financial resources at our disposal, particularly in a window in which the value of players was grossly over-inflated and the demands of agents likewise. “I worked very hard on several targets and we made a number of bids for players, but for various reasons – some of which were outside the club’s control – we were unable to secure our targets. “We will continue to operate in a financially responsible manner, buying only the right players for the right prices and not paying over the odds or making costly knee-jerk decisions. “This is the reality of a well-run football club that lives within its means. When the deal is right and the player can add real quality and depth to the squad, we have the ability to spend.” last_img read more
