Previous articleBUILDING PERMITS: April 23 – April 27Next articleSantorellis to retire after more than 30 years admin Facebook Pinterestcenter_img Ernie Johnson Jr. Book Cover Portraits Nightly, this time of year, as the NBA playoffs rage on, both in packed arenas across the U.S. and on flickering television screens in millions of American homes, there are few constants, and few steady mainstays, amid the whirlwind of twists, turns, excitement and energy that come with every broadcast of pro basketball’s postseason.One of those mainstays usually wears a bowtie — and there are plenty of stories to be told from behind it.The instantly recognizable Ernie Johnson, the veteran anchor of Inside the NBA on TNT, who is often caught between the raucous antics of Shaquille O’Neal, Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith during their Emmy-winning halftime and post-game shows, is set to speak in Midland this August as part of the annual summer fundraiser for Centers for Children and Families.An Evening with Ernie Johnson is scheduled for Aug. 16 at the Midland County Horseshoe Pavilion, and tables, individual tickets and sponsorship opportunities are available for a night featuring Johnson’s keynote, dinner, entertainment, live and silent auctions and more.The organization’s series of “An Evening with…” events have run annually for well over a decade, with various sports personalities often making their way to the Permian Basin to speak, like Kurt Warner and Archie Manning, before Demarcus Ware last year.Johnson is a bit different from those, in that he covers the action instead of bounding in the middle of it, but once his name came across organizers’ desks, event chairman Leslie Whitehead said she found Johnson to be a perfect match for Centers and its mission.Johnson and his wife have six children, four of them adopted and one with special needs, making his experiences especially valuable to Centers, which offers counseling, education and support programs to families throughout the Permian Basin and further.The event raises money for Centers and its services.“I feel like he couldn’t have been a better fit,” Whitehead said of Johnson. “He’s going to resonate with a lot of people, which I’m excited about.“Once you see his picture, you go, ‘Oh, I know that guy,’” she added with a laugh.Johnson is also a survivor of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.“We felt like he would really resonate with many different populations in this area, between foster parents, and adoptive parents, and special needs parents, and cancer survivors — and then, just sports fans, who just like to watch the NBA or like to watch basketball and think he’s funny,” Whitehead said.Johnson has won three Sports Emmys as an individual. He’s a central figure for Turner Sports, working play-by-play for TBS’s baseball coverage and previously serving on TNT’s PGA golf broadcasts, but he’s likely best known as the grounding force on Inside the NBA, steering the show as Shaq, Barkley and Smith bounce around him with prop fishing rods and the in-studio hoop.Johnson’s 2017 memoir, Unscripted, recounts his experiences battling cancer and raising a family with adopted children.“With Centers, with our post-adoption, and all the programs we have that focus on family — we have parenting classes — we have so many different things that that really resonates with,” Whitehead said.Whitehead said Centers’ fundraising event is as important as ever this year, after the organization opened a new building on Andrews Highway in Midland, and with that has come more visibility, and an increased caseload and an increase in referrals.Those interested in the event can buy tickets or tables at CentersTX.org.If You Go By admin – May 6, 2018 Pinterest Twitter WhatsApp WhatsApplast_img read more

The Court has asked Centre to provide facilities to the Committee including place and secretarial assistance. The Bench clarified that it will decide on the time to be given to the Committee to submit its report.”We will form the Committee, we will ring up some people and ask if 2 weeks is okay. Otherwise we will given them 4 weeks. We will see” the Bench observedA three-judge Bench of Chief Justice of India SA Bobde Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian made the observation while hearing the case against the felling of trees for a project in West Bengal.With regards to it’s previous order for formation of the Committee , CJI Bobde stated that “We remember that we were talk about forming of Committee, any Committee formed will not submit its report before me. ” CJI Bobde is scheduled to retire in April.The Bench suggested that it can pass an order laying down principles for evaluation of the trees, and thereafter let the matter go before the committee for framing guidelines, otherwise the Court will lose season of the matter completely.Sr Adv AM Singhvi submitted that, its a matter for experts. Its central government schemes implemented by State government. Even if inputs are received by March end, it might be possibly reversing the legitimate order, to pass a judicial order first. There are considerations and issues involved . The Court can take it in first week of April and ask the Committee to submit a report by first week.SG Mehta suggested that he and Mr Singhvi can select a committee and request it to expedite its report.The Bench stated that it had indicated last time that it would like, a very senior person and an expert Mr Ranjit singh, to head the Committee.In response to SG Mehta’s submission that Mr Ranjit Singh may be sick, the Bench clarified that he is not sick and has appeared before the Court also.Bench observed that it will form the Committee with Ranjit Singh, and sought SG Mehta’s suggestions regarding the other names. SG Mehta submitted that he will consult and give names by the evening or by tomorrow.ASG Aishwarya Bhati submitted that the Union of India has already filed an affidavit and has given the names. It included Director General of the ICFRE, which is an 100 year old organisation with specialised experts on Board already.We recommend that he be made Chairperson of the Committee. We have suggested one members be appointed from Indian Institute of Forest Management Bhopal, Indian Road Congress, Wildlife Institute of India Dehradun& Institute of Forest Productivity, Ranchi.Dr Singhvi appearing for State of West Bengal submitted that he has also submitted names before the Court.Advocate Prashant Bhushan submitted that he has suggested name of Mr Pradeep Krishan as also suggested by West Bengal, and is agreeable to be in the Committee. Other name was UV Singh, who was appointed by SC in Karnataka mining. He was principal conservator of forest.” We will form the Committee and give it time till April. Now you persuade them.” the Bench observed.The Bench asked Tushar Mehta’s suggestions regarding the size of the committee. SG Mehta submitted that smaller Committee would be more effective, and 6-7 members would be fine. Advocate Prashant Bhushan suggested that a five member committee would be appropriate .SG Mehta on a lighter note said “a Committee is a body of persons who decide together, that nothing can be decided together.”Dr AM Singhvi said “If your lordships won’t haul me for contempt. Its an old formulation. Its not mind Committee is a group of unfit, appointed by unwilling, to do the unnecessary.”The Court asked SG Mehta to provide all facilities to the committee including a place and secretarial assistance.SG Mehta submitted if the report is to be filed in 2 weeks it won’t be a permanent committee requiring staff and place. The Bench said that they will need staff.”Frankly I don’t believe the committee can submit its report by April, but that’s alright, as the Cause is more important than a particular bench. I am sure all of you will carry it on further” – CJI said.The Bench reiterated that it will form the Committee, and will decide on the time to be given to submit a report.The Apex Court had previously asked for suggestions regarding the Committee to set up a protocol for economic valuation of heritage trees on basis of species, ecological contribution, age, etcThe Bench, in its previous hearing had observed that it wants the Committee to tell the protocol.”Somebody has to asses what is a heritage tree and tell us, what are the roots to explore before you want to build a road, and once you decide to build a road, then which trees can and cannot be cut down. If the trees are to be cut down how should they be valued.” the Bench had stated.Supreme Court had on 18th February indicated that it will lay down guidelines for the felling of trees for the purposes of highway projects. The Court had observed that it would like the government to explore alternatives before cutting down trees for roads. It had further said that it might constitute an expert committee for such guidelines and also to value felled trees for the purposes of afforestation compensation.CJI Bobde had orally observed that the value of the trees must be computed on the basis of its contribution to the environment and not just the timber value. Trees produce oxygen, and bind the soil. Trees of a certain type, which have reached a certain age, should never be cut.The bench was considering the petitions filed by Association for Protection of Democratic Rights and Arpita Saha challenging the felling of trees for the “Setu Bharatam” project. A Court-appointed committee has valued the costs of trees which would be felled for the project at a staggering amount of Rs 2.2 billion. The West Bengal Government, had taken objection to the Committee valuation by terming it as “hypothetical” and “highly speculative”.Next Storylast_img read more
