Reed Introduces Bill To Help Jamestown Regional Airport

first_imgWNYNewsNow File Image.WASHINGTON — A new bipartisan bill proposed by Congressman Tom Reed seeks to help smaller airports across the nation, including the one near Jamestown.Reed’s “Restoring Essential Service to Small Airports Act”, would help smaller but economically essential airports across the country, like the Jamestown Regional Airport, rejoin the Essential Air Service (EAS) program. The bill would also provide a much-needed boost to local economies while guaranteeing access to commercial air service.“We care about our region’s access to national air travel because working families and businesses depend on the availability of affordable commercial flights,” said Reed. “The Essential Air Service Program must restore its role as a facilitator of air services in communities like Jamestown, New York to ensure the local economy of Western New York is not unfairly left out of new economic development opportunities.”“The Essential Air Service program is an important part of growing our Chautauqua County Jamestown Airport and breathing new life into the operations,” said Chautauqua County Executive P.J. Wendel. “Small airports like ours are a critical piece of infrastructure for business retention and economic development efforts. Not only is this important for corporate and business travel, but having commercial service available offers a local, no-hassle flying opportunity for our residents and visitors, boosting our tourism and hospitality industry. I thank Congressman Reed for introducing this bill and his continued efforts to get commercial air service back in Chautauqua County through the Essential Air Service program.” The U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Essential Air Service (EAS) program provides critical air service to smaller regional airports, connecting local communities to major hubs, and supporting economic growth. In January of 2018, the U.S. Department of Transportation terminated the EAS agreement with the Chautauqua County Jamestown Airport. Many efforts have been made by Chautauqua County government officials, as well as Rep. Reed, to get commercial flight service reinstated.Share:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window),Outstanding.,Let’s pump millions more $ into an airport NO ONE uses …… Buffalo is only 1.5 hrs away, Erie is 1hr…..NY is BROKE, this is a complete waist of $$$$$$, 10-26-2006 = $2,067,000 grant8-2020= $274,000 (this includes Tree Removal)2019= Jamestown realized about $97,435 in income last year with over $685,000 in expense.

How Man Utd could line-up at Chelsea with Odion Ighalo

Solskjaer confirmed last week that former Watford striker Ighalo will travel to London with the squad. He said: “He’ll travel with us and let’s see if he’s involved or not. “He’s done his [training programme] and it was always going to be a case of him having to integrate into the group anyway after having been out in China. “He needs to get used to the players and the team and up to speed as quick as he can.” Ighalo made his first appearance at United’s Carrington base on Sunday following his Deadline Day move from Shanghai Shenhua. The 30-year-old had been training alone as a precautionary measure amidst coronavirus fears. But he could lead the line for United as they look to bounce back from the bore draw with Wolves at the start of the month. De Gea looks set to start between the sticks with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw ahead of him. Nemanja Matic is likely to start alongside Fred – who jetted off to the Maldives for his second honeymoon earlier this month. And Bruno Fernandes is in line to make his first appearance for the club away from home. United’s squad flew to Marbella in Spain for a warm-weather training camp during the Premier League’s winter break. McTominay and team-mate Axel Tuanzebe travelled with them, but will not be fit for the clash against Lampard’s side. Pogba remains out of action with an ankle injury while Rashford continues his recovery from a back problem. Solskjaer added: “I don’t think we’ll get anyone back for the Chelsea game. “Because Scotty, Axel, Tim, they didn’t join too much so they’re not ready to play that game. And Paul is not ready, of course. “How do we go about playing without Marcus, Paul, Scott? You deal with it.

He’s been hot, but I think he worked hard to get to the point he’s gotten and hopefully, he can keep that going.”President of baseball operations Dick Williams said at the All-Star break the Reds were planning to be buyers this month, but they’re just 3-5 in their last eight games, which could change that thinking, according to The Athletic.The Reds entered Wednesday 6 1/2 games out of the second National League wild-card spot with a 46-53 record.

He has also scored 49 runs and stolen 13 bases.“When I’m going into each AB, (I’m) looking for something I can hit, something in the zone that I can make contact (with),” Puig said about his success this season, via Cincinnati.com. “In the first couple of weeks, I go into there to try to get hits and swing at every ball. Now, I slowed down myself, try to put the ball in play and that’s helped me out a lot.” Related News Yasiel Puig may be with a new team soon.The 28-year-old outfielder is “a particularly strong candidate to be moved” by the Reds before the July 31 trade deadline, according to a report from The Athletic, which cited unidentified league sources.last_img read more

Powered by Firework Steve Smith’s cricketing career has had its highs and lows, but these days it seems like fortune is indeed by his side. On the field his twin centuries in both innings of the first Ashes Test helped Australia to comeback over England at Edgbaston. And now reports claim that off the field, Smith’s business and investment ventures have turned into an overwhelming profit. According to The Australian Financial Review, the former Australian skipper has turned a $1,00,000 investment in an Australian mattress retailer (Koala Mattress) into a whopping $12.1 million profit.Advertisement On July 2015 Steve Smith invested for 10 percent of the company just before he was declared the Australian Test captain. Since then, the company has built a solid customer base of more than 2,00,000 people and is now valued at over $150 million. His ownership helped the company rake in more investors as he became their brand ambassador as well.

first_imgPrelate saying a prayer over the remains of the late Ambassador KarpehThe Minister of Foreign Affairs says the late Ambassador Carlton Alexwyn Karpeh (CAK) will be remembered for his versatility, eloquence, excellent deportment and patriotism.“He was a man of integrity and unusual modesty. He sacrificed his personal pride for the service of his country. These sterling qualities are rarely found in one person.“As we say farewell to Ambassador CAK, we thank God that he lived a full and fruitful life among us and recall that death is not the beginning of a voyage, but the end of one; it is not the start of a mysterious and dangerous journey across an unknown and vast ocean, but the arrival at the safe harbor. Carlton has arrived,” she indicated.A Foreign Ministry release states that Madam Marjon Kamara made the assertion when she delivered a tribute on behalf of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Government of Liberia at the funeral of the late Carlton Alexwyn Karpeh at the Trinity Cathedral Episcopal Church on Saturday, March 25, 2017.The late Ambassador Karpeh (85), who died in the early morning hours of Tuesday, February 28, 2017, in Paynesville, was former senior Ambassador-at-Large, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and earlier former Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Liberia to the Republic of Cameroon and countries in the Central African Region and Doyen of the Diplomatic Corps.Before then, he also served as Minister of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism and earlier, Assistant Minister for Public Affairs and Tourism, Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism.Foreign Minister Kamara said the death of Ambassador Karpeh tore off a valuable leaf from a branch of the Liberian national tree and the Government and people of Liberia including his family were thrown into a state of grief.“Indeed the Government, especially the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is deeply saddened by the death of a former colleague who has made numerous and invaluable contribution to the Republic,” she asserted, adding, “We extend gratitude to the Karpeh family for sharing this great mind with us for most of his useful life in the service of his country.”Continuing, Madam Kamara said, “CAK”, as he was called by his friends and admirers, was a patriot and nationalist who lived the truest meaning of those words. “He learned at an early age to devote his energy and work to his country, standing tall and engraving his name indelibly in the records of our Ministry.”Also paying a tribute to the memory of the late Ambassador Karpeh was the Ambassador of the Republic of Cameroon to the Republic of Liberia, His Excellency Beng’yela A.

Social Networks: Boomers Feel Left Out

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Even though baby boomers make up more than one quarter of all US Internet users, and even though the majority of this group spends over five hour per week online, a new survey by Burst Media found that only 14% of boomers feel that the content on the Internet is focused on people their age. An even smaller number of boomers (9.9%) thinks that Internet advertising is focused on their demographic. With regards to social networks, most boomers also think that these sites are not focused on people their age.According to Burst Media, close to 80% of women and 76% of men under 34 belong to at least one social networking site. For baby boomers, these numbers drop to 50% and 44% respectively. Part of the problem here is that boomers don’t think that these social networks are focused on their age group. Only 11.9% of boomers who belong to a social networking site think that the site is geared to people their age. As the Burst Media survey notes, boomers actively look for different things online than younger users. Young adults look for entertainment news (49%), games (41%), local and national news (37%), and social media sites (36%). Boomers, on the other hand, are far more interested in local and national news (55%), shopping info (41%), and health info (40%).According to the Pew Internet and American Life Project, Boomers make up 34% of Internet users in the US, and as a recent report from Forrester Research pointed out, this group is quite comfortable with creating and consuming social media. Social networks, however, still haven’t quite found the right angle to draw these users in. Bonus: Would Your Life be Disrupted if You Couldn’t Get Online? 83% Say So83% of respondents to this survey say that their daily routines would be disrupted if they couldn’t get online. 41% even say that their lives would be ‘significantly disrupted.’ Interestingly, slightly more women (43.9%) than men (39.3%) think that their lives would be significantly disrupted without access to the Internet.These are pretty impressive numbers, though we have to keep the methodology of this survey in mind. All of the respondents were Internet users, and this was an online survey. If Burst Media had also surveyed offline users, these number would probably have been slightly different. frederic lardinois Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#news#NYT#web last_img read more
