Wyoming County ‘Hoping for the Best’ on Collecting $50 Million Due From 2 Bankrupt Coal Companies

first_imgWyoming County ‘Hoping for the Best’ on Collecting $50 Million Due From 2 Bankrupt Coal Companies FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Mead Gruver for the Associated Press:Campbell County officials say they’re hoping for the best and preparing for the worst as almost $50 million in local taxes owed by two major coal companies that have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy comes due next week.Most of the amount due Tuesday is taxes based on the value of coal that Alpha Natural Resources and Arch Coal mined in 2014. The taxes aren’t considered overdue until May.Bristol, Va.-based Alpha Natural Resources filed for bankruptcy in August, followed by St. Louis-based Arch in January. The county has filed paperwork in case it has to go through bankruptcy court to collect $14.5 million from Alpha, deputy county attorney Carol Seeger said.“I just didn’t want to run the risk of being foreclosed,” Seeger said Wednesday.An Alpha spokesman declined to comment on the record Thursday. The time to file a court claim for the $34.4 million owed by Arch has not opened up yet, Seeger said.“As part of the ordinary course of business, we have paid and expect to continue to pay taxes as they come due,” Arch spokeswoman Logan Bonacorsi said by email Thursday.Almost half of the revenue goes to Campbell County government agencies and districts. Campbell County’s general budget this year, covering everything from the local community college campus to animal control, is about $170 million.“They haven’t contacted us other than their bankruptcy papers,” county Treasurer Becky Brazelton said of the coal companies. “We’re hopeful they’re going to pay, but we just won’t know until May.”Close to $27 million goes to the Campbell County School District, which sends the revenue to the state for even redistribution to school districts throughout Wyoming. The system will insulate Campbell County schools from any loss of local revenue, Associate Superintendent Kirby Eisenhauer said.A bigger concern for schools is state coal-leasing revenue that has ground to a halt. The money helped pay for a school construction boom across Wyoming, but several schools in Campbell County will need to be replaced in the years ahead, Eisenhauer said.Full article: Campbell County eyes taxes owed by Chapter 11 coal companieslast_img read more

Jamaica calls for joint collaboration to tackle Chikungunya

first_img Tweet 27 Views   no discussions Share Share Sharecenter_img HealthLifestyleNewsRegional Jamaica calls for joint collaboration to tackle Chikungunya by: – April 8, 2014 Sharing is caring! FERGUSON… the only effective means of prevention is to protect individuals from mosquito bitesHEALTH Minister Dr Fenton Ferguson wants a collaborative approach with governments, non-governmental organisations and the private sector in the Americas to combat the spread of the Chikungunya (CHIK) disease, which is already affecting some countries in the Caribbean.The minister was participating in a tele-briefing last Friday to launch World Health Day 2014, which was observed yesterday, April 7, under the theme: ‘Small Bite, Big Threat’.CHIK is transmitted by the bite of the Aedes mosquito, which also transmits dengue fever. It has a three- to-seven-day incubation period and can cause acute, sub-acute and chronic illness.In the acute form of the disease, there is an abrupt onset of symptoms, which include high fever, headache, muscle pain, joint pains and rash. The symptoms generally resolve in seven to 10 days, but joint pains and stiffness may last for months or years, and can become a source of chronic pain and disability. Infants and the elderly are at greater risk for more severe pain.The launch, which was held at the offices of the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO), at the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus, was one of several simultaneous launches held at PAHO/World Health Organisation (WHO) offices in the Americas and focused on a call to action to step up the fight against vector-borne diseases in the Americas.Ferguson indicated that the first two CHIK cases originating in the Americas were detected in the Dutch/French Caribbean island of St Maarten/St Martin on December 6, 2013, and that imported cases had been previously reported in Brazil, Canada, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique and the United States. Although outbreaks of the disease took place as early as 1952, it was the first time that the CHICK was originating in the Americas.“To date, 10 countries and territories in the region have recorded autochthonous cases of CHIK infection — Anguilla, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint Martin (French), Saint Maarten, St Barthelemy and St Kitts and Nevis. In addition, one imported case has been recorded in Aruba,” he added.The minister pointed out that there was no treatment or vaccine for CHIK, and that the only effective means of prevention is to protect individuals from mosquito bites. He said Jamaica was at risk because of the broad distribution of the vector, as well as the high mobility of persons around the region.He suggested that all countries in the Americas implement the recommendations of PAHO/WHO in the guidelines entitled: ‘Preparedness and Response for Chikungunya Virus, Introduction in the Americas’. These include detection of cases through establishing and strengthening dengue surveillance systems; managing cases through training and assessment of impact on society; and implementation of effective public communication strategies.Other speakers at the tele-briefing, organised by the WHO/PAHO, were director, US Centre for Disease Control, Dr Tom Frieden; US Global Malaria Co-ordinator Rear Admiral Tim Ziemer; Secretary for Health Surveillance of Brazil Dr Jarbas Barbosa; and director, PAHO/WHO, Dr Carissa F Etienne.Jamaica Observerlast_img read more
