I was in my cell and Iraqi government representatives came to get me. They had a government car waiting.” Aged 33 and an Irish citizen, Carroll has been in Baghdad for nine months working for the London-based Guardian newspaper. He was abducted by gunmen in a largely Shiite neighbourhood of Baghdad after interviewing someone who had suffered under Saddam Hussein. He was with an interpreter and two drivers at the time.

Saving the rock

first_imgLatest Stories By The Penny Hoarder Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Saving the rock The Pike County Commission is in charge of the Rock Building but it belongs to the people of Pike County, Helms said.“The Rock Building belongs to all of us and it’s time that we step up and let the Pike County Commissioners know that we are willing to do what has to be done to preserve this historic building,” she said. “There’s probably not a single person who has roots in Pike County that didn’t have someone in their family that gathered and stacked field rocks by the side of the road for the county to pick up to build this grand old building.Every community in Pike County has an investment in the Rock Building.“We owe it to our grandpas and great-grandpas and to ourselves to save the Rock Building, whatever it takes,” Helms said. Published 10:07 pm Sunday, March 16, 2014 “The Rock Building is part of our history and, if we don’t get out of our La-Z-Boys and do something, the building is going to be so far gone that all the king’s horses and all the king’s men … you know what I mean,” Helms said. “We can’t keep sitting around doing nothing. And, now is the time.”Helms, a retired educator who works with a family business in downtown Troy, says she is passionate about preserving this piece of Pike County’s history. The building, located in the 100 block of East Church Street in downtown Troy, was built as a WPA project from 1938-39using native ironstone gathered from all over Pike County by local residents. It is considered to be representative of the community spirit of Pike County during the Depression era.It was originally the Pike County activities building and housed both the Pike County Health Department and the Board of Education before being shuttered by the County Commission earlier this century.

We’re not sure if the water is coming just from the roof or is seeping in from the walls.”Sanders said interest and support from the community would be appreciated.“It’s been said that the longest journey begins with one step,” he said. “Maybe public support will be that first step.”The building of the Rock Building was a grassroots effort and Helms said the preservation of the building should also be a grassroots effort.“We can do this,” she said. “By every town and every community pulling together, we can raise the money to raise the roof, which is job one of the preservation project. Then, we must continue working to raise the money to restore the Rock Building and bring it back to its former prominence in Pike County.”Helms tested the waters with a Facebook page this week and, as of Friday noon, already had 346 “likes” and counting.“There’s a lot of interest in the preservation of the Rock Building,” she said. “I honestly believe when we get started that this is going to be a tremendous grassroots effort and it will be successful.“I believe that people of all ages, from children to senior citizens, and from all walks of life – the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker – are going to be actively involved. I believe that people care about our historic buildings and don’t want to see them come tumbling down.”The first step in bringing the people and communities of Pike County together in support of the preservation of the Rock Building is to “bring the people together.”“It’s time to take that first step,” Helms said. “Within the next couple of weeks, there will be a meeting to find out where our support is. Every community and every organization that wants to be involved in saving the Rock Building will asked to send a representative or two to the meeting and we’ll go from there.”The date and time of the “seeding of the Rock Building grassroots” will be announced.“Until them, everyone who supports the effort to save the Rock Building is encouraged to voice their support by ‘liking’ THE ROCK BUILDING –DOWNTOWN TROY on Facebook,” she said.last_img read more

Students consulted over health scheme

first_imgThe Oxford City NHS Primary Care Trust(PCT) is looking to create a unified health centre in Oxfordby 2012 to replace GP practices around Oxford.The PCT is a health trust thatworks on cases outside hospitals. It is currently in talks with the localcommunity to decide upon the best site for a local health centre. The OUSU VicePresident (Welfare and Equal Opportunities), Aidan Randle-Conde, has beenrequested to find out where students wish to have the central health centrelocated. Aidan has sent an email to all JCRPresidents and college Welfare Officers asking them to discuss the PCT plans attheir next JCR meetings. He wrote, “The plans are to move local GP practicesfrom across Oxford (Jericho, Beaumont Street etc) to a central site onthe Radcliffe Infirmary site.” There are currently four plansunder consideration: to move all facilities to a) the Radcliffe Infirmary (RI)site; b) to the RI site and the Wellington Square site; c) to the site and the TidmarshLane site; or d) to renovate existing facilities. The PCT hopes to use feedbackfrom the local community, including students, whom they feel should be integralto their decision making process, to decide between one of these four options. Melanie Proudfoot, CommunicationsManager for the PCT, said, “Many current GP practices are in old buildingswhich need to be replaced.” The PCT is “planning to put them onto the RadcliffeInfirmary site or onto another site so that we can develop their facilities andallow other facilities to expand.” This will also prevent studentsand patients from having to “travel around different locations,” and willprovide “many different health services in one complex.” She added thattherapies, such as psychotherapy, currently provided in Churchill or Headington,and X-rays provided by the John Radcliffe, would be on one site and so savepeople an extra journey. The closer health care facilitieswill be welcomed by many Oxfordstudents who currently have to travel long distances to get to their GP. Laura Callaghan-Pace,a second year at St Hilda’s, said that the Oxford health care system was “horrendous”after she spent much of last term trying to cope with illness. “I had to trekall the way to the Radcliffe Infirmary and then up Banbury Road to see my GP, and then to Headington.”Laura thinks it would be “beneficial and very useful to have everything on thesame site”. However, Adam Kelly, Welfare Representativeof St Anne’s College said, “believe students are quite happy with the currentsystem as our local health centre is a one minute walk away from the College.”The JCR President of St Peter’s CollegeOmar Shekwini, said he was pleased that the health care trust was consultingstudents “if this is a genuine means of determining what students think.” Oxford students will haveto wait to see whether their opinions do affect the PCT’s decision.ARCHIVE: 6th week MT 2005last_img read more

A shimmering New Year

first_imgWell, as we zoom rapidly away from 2014 and into 2015, I really have a sense of new beginnings. Last year we were moving from back from Australia, and I guess that seemed more like an ending, but this New Year means a new house for me (which allows me to have a cake studio! OH JOY!), and I have set a business plan laid out for my cake business and the classes I hope to run. It’s important to keep ahead of the game as far as trends for weddings and what other cake makers want to learn for their own businesses.A great place to look into future trends and styles of cakes is obviously the exhibitions. I don’t think I could write this blog at the end of November without mentioning the amazing weekend I had at Cake International at the start of the month! I was thrilled to be there once again as a finalist in the National Cupcake Championships and it was a great excuse to get inspired by the amazing competition entries for the larger cake as well. It’s four years since I last went to this expo, and I was interested to see much less buttercream around the stands. The cupcake seems to be excelling still, but the fondant covered cupcake seems to be the way forward. Promotions were on show of foam and polystyrene domes which mean you can dry a perfect dome and decorate before making the cupcake which I found a great idea, and time saver if you are going to be making 200+ cupcakes for a wedding / event.Ganached cakes with sharp edges are rapidly coming into fashion in UK cakes, following suit from Australia, and the designs on these cakes are also including the shimmers and metallics which have been popular Down Under for the last few years. I am excited to see this as, presently, I can’t get enough of making shimmered cakes!!For me, my new 2015 beginnings mean stretching myself to learn a new technique. Christmas came early for me at Cake International and brought me air brush! I am seeing so many novelty cakes now being made using airbrushing to add such realistic colour to models and designs, I really couldn’t resist giving it a go! I just have to get through all the house unpacking before I can get the time to practice!Wishing you and your business great success in 2015!last_img read more
