first_imgHungary should be excluded from the European Union’s ministerial meetings because of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s move to take sole command of the nation, Luxembourg’s Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn said.“We cannot accept that there exists a dictatorial government within the EU,” said Asselborn in an interview with the German newspaper Die Welt. “Hungary immediately belongs into strict political quarantine. The Hungarian government should no longer have a seat at the table of the European institutions.”In the country’s fight against the coronavirus, Hungary’s parliament handed Orban the right to rule by decree indefinitely on Monday, effectively giving him control for as long as he sees fit.Topics :last_img read more

first_imgSumner Newscow report — Finalists for shipping hub announced seven finalists have been selected for the site of a proposed Kansas transload shipping center. Wellington was not included on the list.The Kansas Department of Transportation/Kansas Turnpike Authority Transload Facility Site analysis team selected the finalists from the 111 proposals submitted for consideration. Some communities submitted multiple sites. The finalists include Abilene, Concordia, El Dorado (Refinery Road site), Garden City (U.S. 50 Industrial Park), Great Bend, Great Plains Industrial Park just south of Parsons, and Norton.Transloading is the process of moving goods from one mode of transportation to another, or in this case, from truck to rail and rail to truck. By blending the benefits of shipping by rail and local/short haul trucking, a transload facility can provide more flexible and cost-effective solutions for customers who may not have local access to freight rail service or those who need expanded warehousing.Wellington City Manager Roy Eckert said in June that Wellington had submitted an application and was hopeful the Sumner County seat would be selected (see story here).  “I’m pleased that so many communities in every region of the state submitted proposals. A transload facility has the potential to not only lower shipping costs, it is a job creator and provides economic development opportunities for the export of Kansas products,” said Mike King, Secretary of Transportation and Director of the Kansas Turnpike Authority.The selection committee will hear presentations from the finalists later this month and a final selection is expected in late August.Follow us on Twitter.

But I do worry that Wellington is not doing all it can on the economic development front at the moment. Report Reply 2 replies · active 264 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down Turkeyleg 46p · 264 weeks ago JUST missed it by THAAAAAAAAAAT much! If Wellington doesn’t like what it is getting, quit doing what they are doing. But when you have people like Wetta running the show good luck. But you people voted for them, now relish in your victory or may I say misery. Maybe the city leaders should go to Goddard and follow their steps. Report Reply 0 replies · active 264 weeks ago +5 Vote up Vote down Turkeyleg 46p · 264 weeks ago But I do know what doesn’t work for Wellington, is the censorship of comments on here. If the powers to be can’t handle a little constructive criticism on here of certain individuals and/or groups. Trying to give them a little advise for the community on how to better themselves, then Wellington is certain to fall into a much deeper position than they are now. Like I’ve posted many times, Wellington and their problems are of their own making. Report Reply 3 replies · active 263 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!
