Trident seafood worker the first positive COVID-19 case in Dillingham

first_imgCoronavirus | WesternTrident seafood worker the first positive COVID-19 case in DillinghamMay 16, 2020 by Izzy Ross, KDLG Share:Boats tie up at Dillingham’s small boat harbor in 2018, with many waiting to be pulled from the water at high tide. (Photo courtesy Austin Fast/KDLG)Dillingham has its first case of COVID-19. According to state data, the person is an out-of-state resident who works in the seafood industry. It’s the ninth case of an out-of-state resident testing positive for the disease, and it’s the fourth instance of someone testing positive who works in that industry. The state said in a news release that the individual is a seasonal worker for Trident Seafoods. Trident is arranging for that worker to leave the community today. That person is asymptomatic, doing well and does not require hospitalization.Trident doesn’t have processing facilities in Dillingham; it operates a barge for tender and vessel support in partnership with the Bristol Bay Economic Development Corporation. Five workers arrived via a Lake Clark air flight May 1, and were tested at the end of their quarantine. “So we’re obviously really disappointed in the news. This wasn’t, obviously, intended by any means. But we never expected that we’d be able to prevent all of the asymptomatic employees from entering. So I think this really just highlights the importance of having a really strong quarantine protocol, and then also testing,” said Shannon Carroll, the associate director of public policy for Trident Seafoods. Trident operates in 10 communities around the state. After the positive test, the company is changing the way it operates. “Now, given that there’s been some revised local ordinances in Dillingham and state health mandates, all future employees that will be coming into Dillingham will be quarantined and tested in Anchorage, and then have secured transport to Dillingham,” Carroll said. The other workers quarantining at the location tested negative, and will now quarantine for another 14 days because they were in  close contact with the infected person.  During that time, they will be observed by public health nurses. To get out of quarantine they will need to satisfy the City of Dillingham’s ordinances and, according to Trident, receive a minimum of two negative tests, including one at the end of the quarantine period.Public health nurses have completed a contact investigation and report that no one at that quarantine site had any outside contacts. In a community meeting on Saturday, Dillingham Mayor Alice Ruby said that the response to this case demonstrates that Trident’s health protocols, as well as the local ordinances and state mandates, are effective. “We’ve been working with partners, the state and tribal partners, federal and health care partners, to ensure that the plans we have in place work well and that they protect everyone. The discovery of this positive case, while they were still in quarantine, is just an indication of how our plan is working,” she said. “They haven’t exposed the community because they haven’t been out in the community,” public health nurse Gina Carpenter said in the state’s news release. “This shows the benefit of these rules. These workers did everything right and followed the quarantine and testing requirements laid out in Trident’s industry plan.”During the summer, processors bring in thousands of employees, while thousands of independent fishermen come to the region as well. The off-season regional population is around 6,700, which is spread out through many small communities. During the fishing season the population balloons up to nearly 22,000. In Bristol Bay, the City of Dillingham, as well as several tribes and the regional health corporation, have asked the state to consider closing the fishery, citing the influx of outside workers and fishermen. In April, Gov. Mike Dunleavy released a series of guidelines for commercial fishermen and the state remains committed to keeping the fishery open.The City of Dillingham passed several ordinances at recent meetings extending its travel permit and quarantine requirements for incoming visitors. Effective May 22, it is requiring testing for people quarantining in Dillingham in order for them to come out of quarantine. There are two places to get tested for COVID-19 in Dillingham. Free testing is available at a Capstone Clinic center at the Dillingham harbor. That was set up through a partnership between the Dillingham Public Health Center, Bristol Bay Area Health Corporation, the City of Dillingham and Capstone Clinic. Dr. Cathy Hyndman, clinical director of BBAHC, said harbor’s testing center is for people who aren’t experiencing symptoms but might have been exposed. People who are experiencing symptoms should call the hospital at (907) 842-9440 to set up an appointment. Once at the hospital a nurse will come to the car and administer an Abbot ID Now swab test.Dillingham does not currently have testing set up at its airport. City Manager Tod Larson said that was partly because it would create crowding at the terminal. “It takes quite a bit to put everything together. We have to kinda get a semi-windproof area that has to be built with a lab, fridge, freezer, that kind of stuff,” Larson said.During the Saturday meeting, the state’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Anne Zink,said the state is working with the city and other local entities to minimize the risk to the community. “One is to track the case and to make sure that we are looking at all the contacts, any possible exposure, and be able to try to break any chain of spread,” she said. The case was announced two days after a delegation of state and federal officials visited four communities in Bristol Bay, including Dillingham. The group toured health facilities and seafood processing plants, and heard from community leaders about concerns and support ahead of the fishing season. The Dillingham police force is currently making trips to the airport to check on compliance with state and local laws, according to Mayor Ruby, who said that the city requested additional assistance from the state during the visit.  “We’ll be following up next week to try to get more bodies that would help us with security, so that we can be in more places at once to enforce,” she said. This is a developing story.

Trump administration appeals ruling that blocked Izembek road

first_imgAlaska Native Government & Policy | Alaska’s Energy Desk | Federal Government | Southwest | Transportation | WildlifeTrump administration appeals ruling that blocked Izembek roadAugust 18, 2020 by Nat Herz, Alaska’s Energy Desk – Anchorage Share:The Alaska Peninsula fishing village of King Cove has pushed for construction of a road through the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge, which residents say would allow more consistent access to a jet runway in neighboring Cold Bay for medical evacuations. (Photo by Berett Wilber/KUCB)President Donald Trump’s administration has appealed a federal judge’s rejection of a plan aimed at building a road through the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge on the Alaska Peninsula.Two months ago, Judge John Sedwick threw out a land trade between the federal government and an Alaska Native village corporation aimed at advancing the road project. He said the trade was illegal because it violated two separate federal laws, the Administrative Procedure Act and the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act.The Trump administration issued a notice Friday saying it would appeal the ruling.Residents of the isolated Alaska Peninsula village of King Cove, with support from Alaska elected leaders, have pushed for construction of the road for decades. They say a road would make it easier to reach the nearby airport in the town of Cold Bay for lifesaving medical evacuations.Environmental groups argue that the road could still be impassable during the winter and foul weather and that construction and traffic could harm Izembek’s birds and wildlife.This is the second time the Trump administration’s land exchange has been challenged in federal court. An earlier version was also thrown out by a different federal judge last year.Share this story:last_img read more

Pharmalittle: Allergan CEO says Mohawk deal wasn’t ‘desperation’; pharma layoffs are rising

While you think it over, please join us for yet another delicious cup of stimulation. And of course, here are your tidbits. Have a wonderful day and do keep in touch …Allergan (AGN) chief executive officer Brent Saunders told Mad Money there has been “a lot of misunderstanding” about the controversial deal to transfer Restasis patent rights to the St. Regis Mohawk tribe. “It wasn’t desperation, it was tenacity. … And I think people got confused that said because I believe in strong intellectual property, I don’t believe in making medicines affordable and accessible, and one has nothing to do with the other.” Alex Hogan/STAT Unlock this article by subscribing to STAT+ and enjoy your first 30 days free!

21 of the hardiest men to have played football in Laois in the last 20 years

first_img This piece originally appeared on LaoisToday in November 2017.Every club likes to have a hardy hoor and we’re fond of a list in LaoisToday. So in 2017 we decided to pick out 21 of the hardiest divils to play football in Laois over the past two decades or so.Though we’ve limited it to the last 20 years, it’s by no means a definitive one but these are or were all hardy hoors on the football field. Pinterest Electric Picnic Twitter Home We Are Laois A Bit of Fun 21 of the hardiest men to have played football in Laois in… We Are LaoisA Bit of Fun RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Previous articleWATCH: Laois supermarket goes viral for in store St Patrick’s Day ParadeNext articleMoment In Time: Great Pictures and serious craic at Durrow St Patrick’s Day parade 2010 LaoisToday Reporter Electric Picnic We don’t mean they were dirty and although some lost battles with referees over the years, most were tough, fair, uncompromising but definitely lads you’d rather have with you than against you.Feel free to let us know who we may have left out.Tony ‘Barney’ Maher (Stradbally)Played for Laois for over 10 years and also represented Leinster. A key man for Stradbally when they won championships in 1997 and 1998, he was good in the air and good on the ball but he also wasn’t one to be messed with.Martin Miley DempseyMartin ‘Miley’ Dempsey (St Joseph’s)Another former Laois player, he was full back for Laois for a number of years and played with St Joseph’s for a long while after, continuing to be a great servant as he represented the clubs at their various junior grades. Tough as nails.Joe BrennanJoe Brennan (Crettyard)Crettyard are a tough team and club in general with ‘no go back’ in a lot of them. Brennan was their giant midfielder when they won Leinster in 2005 and was well able to give and take hardship. Has since become a referee.Chris ConwayChris Conway (Arles-Kilcruise)A lot of the players on this list are retired but Conway is one of the younger ones who is still playing. Well able to deliver a shoulder and would throw himself onto a burning fire to win a breaking ball. Cool as you like then when he was taking a free.Shane Julian, Arles Killeen, in action against PortlaoiseShane Julian (Arles-Killeen)An absolute warrior for Arles-Killeen ever since excelling in an intermediate final way back in 2001. The tougher it gets, the better he seems to play and one of the younger names on this list.Billy WalshBilly Walsh (O’Dempsey’s) O’Dempsey’s wouldn’t be known for being a team of hard men but they’ve always had one or two who have been well able to mix it. Walsh, who was also an accomplished rugby player, was excellent for them in the hard-working wing-forward role. Not the biggest but tough out.Mark RooneyMark Rooney (Clonaslee)Clonaslee never make it easy on anyone and Mark Rooney was their biggest physical presence for a long while anywhere from centre-back to full-forward. Well able to play football but few enjoyed coming up against him.Gerry Nerney on the ball for Annanough against Park-RatheniskaGerry Nerney (Annanough)Annanough reached a handful of intermediate finals in the Noughties and the spine of their team often comprised the likes of Paul Foley, Kevin, Eoin and Colin Miller and Andrew and John Deegan. Nerney was hardy out but a very good footballer who played midfield or centre-forward.Enda McDonaldEnda McDonald (Ballyroan-Abbey)McDonald started out his career in the backs but like a lot of players ended up in the full-forward line. Played with Laois at various levels and never made it easy for anyone to get past him. On the Ballyroan team that won the championship in 2006.John O’ReillyJohn O‘Reilly (Graiguecullen)O’Reilly was centre-back on the Laois team that won the Leinster U-21 title in 1994 and had a famous exchange with Meath’s Graham Geraghty in that final. Later played senior with the county but was as tough as you’d get at club or county level.David Sweeney (Portarlington)The Portarlington team of the 90s was a fine side but they had hardy men in almost every position on the field. The likes of John Bolton, Hughie Emerson, Adrian Phelan, Brendan McCann and Colin Bennett were all tough cookies. Sweeney was big, strong, physical, well able to play football and a brilliant free-taker from the ground.Eamon StrongEamon Strong (Emo)Eamon and John Strong both played central roles for Emo for many years and were just some of the hardy boyos that populated the white-and-red jerseys. Throw in the likes of Brian and John Kirwan, Benny O’Connor, Niall Wheeler (who will be playing in the intermediate final this weekend), Lawlors and Brophys, as mentioned by Mark Doheny, and you had hard players all over the field. Eamon was solid as a rock and anyone who ran into him knew all about it.Eoin CullitonEoin Culliton (Timahoe)Has played in goals and outfield for his club and in course in goals for Laois at underage and senior level. His rugby background – with Rockwell, Garryowen, Carlow and Portlaoise – didn’t do him any harm on the football pitch and he’ll make life tough on anyone who comes into his path.Mark Dunne (The Rock/Rosenallis)The Rock had a very good senior team for a number of years, regularly reaching the latter stages and making it to the final in 1998. Mark Dunne was well able to hold his own with the best around and a fine player from midfield up. Also played with Rhode in Offaly and more recently with Rosenallis.Rory O’Connell (Kilcavan)Rory and Derek O’Connell have been mainstays on the Kilcavan team for well over 20 years and while Derek has moved back into goals in recent years, Rory is still featuring outfield. Not the biggest but a very physical player.Joe Miller, Spink, in the Laois JFC final in 2011Joe Miller (Spink)The Millers of Spink have served their club incredibly well over a long number of years and most of them are still going strong. Joe has been in goals for the last couple of years and his square is a bit of a no-go area for incoming forwards. Also hurled with Ballypickas where he was an opponent few players looked forward to marking.MIck Hogan in action for Courtwood in 2014Mick Hogan (Courtwood)Hogan, who is now the club chairman, played with the club’s first team up until recent years, mostly at full-back or centre-back. A great reader of the game, he also made the route to goal a very difficult one for any forward.Simon Norton (The Heath)A dual hard man – who hurled with Clonad and Portlaoise as well as playing football for The Heath. Suffered badly with injuries himself but when he was on the field he was uncompromising and revelled in the tough exchanges.Killeshin’s Mick Malone after his side’s Laois JFC win in 2008Mick Malone (Killeshin)The likes of Tom Kennedy and Mick Malone were all strong, physical players for Killeshin before this current team rose up through the ranks. Malone played centre-back mostly in the later years of his career. A great reader of the game and nothing easy came off him – or went through his patch.Aidan Walsh (Ballylinan)Ballylinan have always had their fair share of ‘enforcers’ and Walsh who played outfield for years before switching back into goals in recent years was a good player and a physical presence around midfield or centre-forward.Have we left anyone out?

Social Housing Programme gets $200 Million

first_imgRelatedSocial Housing Programme gets $200 Million FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Some $200 million has been allocated to the Social Housing Programme for the financial year 2007/08, a 33 per cent increase over the sum of $150 million last year.This was announced by the Minister of Housing, Transport, Water and Works, Robert Pickersgill, during his contribution to the 2007/08 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives, yesterday (May 30).The Minister also informed that under the Social Housing Programme for this financial year, each Member of Parliament would be allocated $2.5 million, up from $2 million, an increase of 22 per cent. An amount of $50 million would be allocated to the Special Assistance Programme, the Minister added.“This programme is seen as one of the more positive moves by the Government to improve the general condition of the poor, as it transcends political lines and the positive difference it is making in the lives of people it was intended to benefit is irrefutable,” said Mr. Pickersgill.“With the increase in funding from the National Housing Trust, it is projected that for the 2007/08 period, the number of beneficiaries under the programme will be in excess of 14,000,” he added.The Social Housing Programme was conceptualised by former Prime Minister P.J. Patterson and was implemented in March 2004. The programme is funded by the National Housing Trust and managed by the Ministry of Housing, Transport, Water and Works.

European Union Provides Support for Sugar Industry

first_imgRelatedEuropean Union Provides Support for Sugar Industry European Union Provides Support for Sugar Industry UncategorizedAugust 7, 2007 RelatedEuropean Union Provides Support for Sugar Industry FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail As the preferential trade arrangement for Caribbean sugar producers with the European Union (EU) draws to a close, Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller said the government’s productivity improvement programme for the sector is moving steadily ahead and will be boosted by an injection of up to 20 Million Euros per annum over the next five years.She made the disclosure on Monday (Aug. 6) while addressing the closing ceremony of the annual Denbigh Agricultural Show in Clarendon, under the theme ‘Agro-technology – advancing national development.’Mrs. Simpson Miller said $250 Million would also be made available to small cane farmers to help them adjust to the divestment of the industry and allow them to rehabilitate and replant their fields. “Productivity improvement and privatization are at the heart of the modernization and transformation of the sugar industry and those who could be most severely affected cannot be ignored,” the Prime Minister said.Turning to the banana industry, Mrs. Simpson Miller said the sector has been carving out a niche in the international market. She said $74.3 Million have been secured through the EU to support banana farmers with training and the upgrading of production processes to meet new export compliance requirements.The Prime Minister also announced the establishment of a Banana Catastrophe Fund to assist farmers with recovery from losses suffered due to natural disasters. Loans are also being made available to farmers at single digit rates through a special pool of funds comprising $250 Million from the National Insurance Fund, $250 Million from the Bank of Nova Scotia Jamaica Ltd. and a further allocation of $2.5 Billion from the Petro Caribe Fund.Mrs. Simpson Miller said that given the changing rules in international trade, threats to traditional exports and the opening up of our domestic market to increased competition, modernization and the application of technology are crucial to the transformation of the agriculture sector. She said in order for the sector to survive and remain competitive, existing methods of production must be modernized and new technologies embraced.center_img Advertisements RelatedEuropean Union Provides Support for Sugar Industrylast_img read more

Melania Trump Unveils Sculpture Installation in White House Rose Garden

first_imgMelania Trump Unveils Sculpture Installation in White House Rose Garden The White HouseFirst Lady Melania Trump is pleased to announce the installation of Floor Frame (1962), by Isamu Noguchi (1904-88). The sculpture will be located on the east terrace of the iconic White House Rose Garden.Isamu Noguchi will be the first Asian American artist to be represented in the White House collection. He viewed Floor Frame as the intersection of a tree and the ground, taking on the qualities of both an implied root system and the canopy of a tree. In order to reconnect viewers to the planet, he envisioned the sculpture placed directly on the ground. The sculpture placement on the terrace in the Rose Garden allows visitors to happen upon it, giving it a found quality. While powerful in its own right, Floor Fame is humble in scale, and compliments the authority of the Oval Office.“I am excited to announce the installation of Floor Frame to the newly restored White House Rose Garden,” said First Lady Melania Trump. “This sculpture not only showcases diversity within our Nation’s finest art but it also highlights the beautiful contributions of Asian American artists to the landscape of our country.”Floor Frame was gifted to the White House by the White House Historical Association in March of 2020. /Public Release.
