LISBON — Board members of the Columbiana County Educational Services Center on Tuesday thanked community groups who have come forward to help students at the opportunity center this holiday season.

“They have great opportunities because people care,” Opportunity Center Supervisor Sarah Underwood said.

Some of those offerings included a Thanksgiving meal cooked Tuesday on the last day of school before break, new coats for all the kids on Monday, and recent homework help, fun and camaraderie from some motorcyclists. There are plans for Christmas and even free haircuts in January too.

“People in the community have made this possible for us,” Underwood talked about the holiday feast with turkey and all the trimmings.

Board member Marilyn Parkes suggested the board send letters of gratitude to the organizations, noting that hearing the Opportunity Center report gives her something else to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

The Opportunity Center is a CCESC-run school on Brookfield Avenue in Lisbon for students who have special needs that cannot be met in their home district. Students range in age from fourth through 12th grade, with about a dozen school staff, including teachers, teacher’s aides, paraeducators, occupational therapists and speech therapists.

Underwood said there was a group of bikers who spent a lot of time with the children, told them about some of the difficulties in their lives, had lunch with them and visited them. The member who originally started the group left, but a few weeks ago others returned to school with gym equipment for the students and a homemade lunch. They also played with them outside.

These community members, Derek and Jenn Hedrick and Joe and Char Russell, have also teamed up with a group known as Share Coats to bring coats to students. Erin Latimer, a paraprofessional at the school, helped arrange the tours. Underwood said they wanted to come back and said everyone was welcome. She described them as open, honest, caring and generous and said the children were very grateful and kind and really bonded with them.

Christian Assembly Church of Industry, Pennsylvania, provided Thanksgiving dinner, as well as hygiene items for the children. They’ve been cooking dinner for nine years. The Gate Church adopts students at Christmas to bring them gifts, and a hair salon in Boardman plans to do haircuts in January.

Underwood praised the community and its staff, saying everything they do is for the kids.

In other cases, Superintendent Anna Marie Vaughn spoke about the Reach for the Stars consignment shop operated through CCESC and the Student Transition Program and said the store was already busy for the holidays. The store is expected to have extended opening hours on Fridays and Saturdays. Hours are normally 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Vaughn said CCESC is still experiencing a staff shortage, saying “I think it’s going to be like this for a few years.” Board member Richard Stoudt said it was a topic of conversation at a recent Capital for School Boards conference. According to Vaughn, the state is looking for ways to increase the numbers, so changes could be on the way.

On personnel matters at recent meetings, the board accepted the resignations of Tammy Pitts, para-educators Caitlyn Lehman, Tiffany Hobbins, Haley Powers, Deborah Mean and Jodine Hull, teacher Michala Sakotas, preschool teacher Delores Alcoces and Assistant Treasurer Jordan Weber; has hired numerous paraeducators, teachers, substitute teachers, staff and academic leaders for Learning’s Cool After School programs and staff for the Reach for the Stars program.

The next meeting of the CCESC Board of Directors will take place on December 20 at 5:00 p.m.

Mauricio Pochettino has hinted he could still have another chance to be Manchester United manager, after blaming timing for missing out on Erik ten Hag.

Speaking to Radio Marca, the 50-year-old believes the timing of the Man Utd vacancy was a huge reason why he didn’t get the job, but didn’t rule out taking the reins at some point given in the future.

The Argentine said: “Football is about timing. These are the times for it to coincide and for this marriage to happen. Sometimes it’s just a matter of timing. I don’t believe that trains pass only once.

Ten Hag signed a three-year deal with the club, with an option for a further year, and enjoyed relative success in his first few months in the hot seat.

Linguistic rights, immigration on the Quebec agenda at the Francophonie Summit Fri, 18 Nov 2022 20:50:40 +0000

Premier François Legault says foreign media have “misinterpreted” Bill 96 and the Coalition Avenir Québec’s immigration policies. Legault promises to “explain” them at the Francophonie Summit.

Legault landed Friday in Djerba, Tunisia, where the 18th Francophonie Summit is being held. He met a Tunisian electric cable company then the Minister-President of Wallonia-Brussels.

In a press scrum, Legault said one of his main challenges would be to explain Quebec’s choices regarding language and immigration, in the context of the “decline that we are experiencing in Montreal”.

According to Legault, Quebec has bad press internationally.

“We have seen some media outside Quebec perhaps misinterpret our Bill 96 and the targets we have set for ourselves in terms of the number of immigrants,” he said. “We talked about the number of places we wanted to limit in English-speaking CEGEPs, the choice of immigrants. I think it’s important (…) to say that Quebec (…) will always be a welcoming people .”

He said he wanted to recall during various meetings on the sidelines of the summit that Quebec annually welcomes more immigrants, “all things considered”, than France or the United States.

“I want to take this opportunity to talk about it with (…) the heads of state, because if there are some who are well placed to understand the challenge we have in Quebec to protect the French language, c is the French-speaking states,” he said.

Legault also said he was open to talking about Francophone immigration.


The Premier of Quebec announced Friday that he would meet Tunisian President Kaïs Saïed and talk to him about the “democratic values” dear to Quebec.

The day before, the Minister of International Relations, Martine Biron, had rather let it be known that not only would Quebec not condemn the Saïed regime, but that it would not promote its awareness either.

“We are on the same message. What we are saying is that obviously we are worried, we are not going to interfere, but we are going to mention that democracy and human rights are important to us. “, he added. said.

On Friday, Legault also met privately with the secretary general of La Francophonie, Louise Mushikiwabo of Rwanda, who is to be reappointed.

He said he was satisfied with the work of the secretary general, who has been criticized for her inaction on several issues, including education.

“When you look at what she did, there was some cleaning up to do,” Legault said. “She improved the processes.”

Quebec is a full member of the International Organization of La Francophonie (OIF), like France, for example, which gives it an exceptional platform.


Legault said Friday that a “special meeting” would be held to discuss the crisis in Haiti.

The meeting will take place as part of the Sommet de la Francophonie, in the presence of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

It would be open to other dignitaries who follow the situation in Haiti and want to help find solutions, Legault said.

“It’s really worrying,” he said in a scrum upon his arrival in Djerba. “It is certain that the solutions are not obvious, it must be done with the Haitians. It is worrying what we see in Haiti.”

For weeks, the Caribbean country has been plunged into social and political chaos. Added to this is a cholera epidemic which to date has killed nearly 200 people.

Opposition parties in Quebec’s National Assembly had urged Legault to put the Haiti crisis on the agenda of the Francophonie Summit.

They argued that Quebec has a special connection to Haiti and that in Montreal alone, more than 130,000 people are of Haitian descent.

“It’s terrible what is happening, children are dying,” said Liberal spokesperson for international relations and Francophonie, Michelle Setlakwe, in an interview. “Quebec must act as a leader, during the next summit, on the question of Haiti.

In 2010, during the Montreux Summit in Switzerland, Liberal Premier Jean Charest led a resolution to recognize Haiti as a priority country for Francophone solidarity.

Armed gangs terrorize vulnerable populations in Haiti and precipitate a humanitarian crisis that includes the resurgence of cholera on the island.

They are committing unspeakable acts of violence, including widespread sexual violence, and preventing the delivery of essential services, according to Canada’s Department of Foreign Affairs.

This report from The Canadian Press was first published in French on November 18, 2022.

Nord Stream explosions caused by ‘gross sabotage’, Swedish prosecutor says Fri, 18 Nov 2022 09:51:53 +0000

The explosions that caused extensive damage to Nord Stream pipelines near the Danish island of Bornholm in late September were the result of “gross sabotage”, Swedish prosecutors have confirmed.

“The analyzes that have now been carried out show traces of explosives on several of the foreign objects that have been found,” said in a statement Friday the district attorney Mats Ljungqvist, in charge of the ongoing preliminary investigation into the explosions. .

There is currently no indication of who is responsible for the incident and the investigation is ongoing.

“The preliminary investigation is very complex and extensive. The continuation of the preliminary investigation must show whether someone can be suspected of a crime,” the statement said.

Swedish investigators will continue to cooperate with national authorities and other countries. The prosecution asked for patience.

“It is important that we can work in peace and quiet,” Ljungqvist said, adding that he could not provide further information and would not be available to the press.

On September 27, underwater explosions ruptured the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines, causing massive methane leaks.

Although allegations of possible sabotage have circulated since the incident, this is the first time that a deliberate act aimed at damaging the pipeline has been confirmed.

Bega Valley Shire Council to submit rate hike options for community consultation Wed, 16 Nov 2022 08:43:33 +0000

The Bega Valley Shire Council is starting a community consultation on a proposal to raise its fares by up to 90%.

The council said it was considering a “special rate variation” (SRV) to pay for the maintenance and renewal of local infrastructure such as roads, bridges and swimming pools.

Councilors at today’s meeting voted unanimously to notify the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal of New South Wales (IPART) of their intention to seek an SRV.

The board is seeking community input on four scenarios:

  • a 90% increase
  • an increase of 45% in 2024 and 37.2% the following year
  • a 43% increase
  • no increase, only the rate set by the IPART, which could go up to 4.1% for the 2023-2024 financial year

“This will be an unprecedented moment in the history of this county,” Councilman Tony Allen said.

“Overall, no one is going to be happy.”

The board’s 10-year long-term financial plan, which included the four modeled options, would be made public.

Council staff would visit local markets and events to speak with community members, and hold town halls and online meetings as part of their community consultation.

Councilors will then have to decide at the February 1, 2023 meeting whether they will move forward with a formal request for SRV and, if so, at what pace.

If approved by the IPART, the rate hike would start from June 2023.

“Terrible dilemmas” to come

Advisors at today’s meeting questioned the negative impact a rate hike would have on vulnerable demographics.

Councilor Helen O’Neil asked if any costs could be saved over road works, fearing that recent rains had caused a lot of damage to the network.
