Foothills Firearms flown again | Mount Airy News https://leisurequest.net/foothills-firearms-flown-again-mount-airy-news/ Tue, 15 Nov 2022 19:35:00 +0000 https://leisurequest.net/foothills-firearms-flown-again-mount-airy-news/

Area school systems are benefiting from nearly $75 million in funding from the Center for Safer Schools of the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.

Additional resources for teacher/staff pay, mental health services, and greater collaboration with local law enforcement can help increase a sense of safety for students, parents, and the community, said state leaders.

Local school systems received varying amounts of the grant. Surry County School will receive $327,171, Mount Airy City Schools received $64,420 and Elkin City Schools received $36,666.

“Our public schools are community centers, the cornerstones of our community and our democracy, where we bring all students together to live, learn and lead,” said Dr. Travis Reeves of Surry County Schools during a groundbreaking ceremony in 2021. “Our schools are dream centers that give our students and their families hope for the future.”

Reeves said most of the funds from his system have been earmarked for additional school resource officers. What is not spent on adding to SRO lists can be used to improve campus safety at system schools.

In budget funding requests earlier this year, Reeves identified the need to add a controlled-access campus visitor vestibule that directs guests through the front office as one of the best potential security measures.

He also noted that all three high schools need new phone systems, intercoms and fire alarm systems so that when campus-wide alerts are needed, they can be heard by everyone.

Some of these upgrades have already been completed, as was the case when elementary schools across the county completed major renovations in 2021.

The National Threat Assessment Center concluded last year that SROs play an important role in preventing school violence. The report states: “In almost a third of the cases, an SRO played a role in either reporting the conspiracy or responding to a report made by someone else.

According to a Duke University study, about 79% of North Carolina schools had school resource officers assigned at least on a rotational basis in 2021. However, since 19 students were killed in the mass shooting at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas in May left the nation wondering how such an event could happen.

Questions were posed to superintendents and local law enforcement about what can be done to protect children in terms of physical safety measures beyond the use of ORS.

The Surry County Board of Commissioners asked Reeves after the Uvalde tragedy if one solution might be to add retired military or law enforcement personnel, armed or unarmed, to school gates. That wasn’t the solution, he said, and the council engaged in a conversation about the simple things that can be done, like making sure doors close and don’t stay open.

Generally, being more aware of who enters campus and who can access the building itself can prevent another mass shooting and six-hour media coverage of traumatized sophomores sprinting from school.

“School safety is a top priority for the Department of Public Instruction, as well as for students, families, educators — all of us,” said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Catherine Truitt. announcing grant funding.

“It goes without saying that safety is an essential requirement for effective teaching and learning. The Center for Safer Schools has done an excellent job of ensuring that each applicant receives as much funding as possible to meet this critical need.

“The School Safety Grant strengthens schools’ efforts to keep our students safe,” said Karen W. Fairley, executive director of the Center for Safer Schools. “We are grateful to have been able to distribute the funds, and we know that they will be put to good use. »

Extended Benefits

A total of $74.1 million will be split among 200 school districts and charter schools across the state and none have been omitted. The state announced that all school districts and charter schools that applied for School Safety Grant funding for the 2022-23 school year received an award.

Yadkin County Schools received $581,216, Wilkes County $394,500 and Alleghany County will receive $96,331. Statewide, Stokes County was one of the largest grant recipients, with their allocation being $1,611,000, ranking as the sixth largest grant recipient among the two hundred grant recipients.

Stokes finds itself in the mix with Johnston, Gaston, Davidson and Duplin counties as smaller, more rural counties that have received more robust grant funding than more populous counties.

By comparison, Wake County received $659,867 and Winston-Salem Forsyth County $741,470. Of the $74.1 million in grants, only Buncombe County ($5.91 million) and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools ($2.89 million) received larger grants than Stokes County.

Since 2018, the School Safety Grant Program has distributed more than $120 million to school systems across the state. The goal has been to improve safety in public schools by providing grants to school resource officers, services for students in crisis, training to increase school safety, school safety equipment and additional school mental health support staff.

Governor Roy Cooper said the state has a role to play in increasing student safety during budget negotiations. He felt that spending more on school safety was a win-win proposition for all parties: “It is what it is, an investment in our children and our public schools, the people who teach them, the staff who teach them. surrounded.”

“We want to prevent violent events from happening to begin with,” Cooper said. “When you look at what our Constitution requires, a good basic education for all children. Their mental health, their safety are part of it. »

Banff also kicks off awards and festival seasons, so keep those movies on your radar.


Vacation in Baffin (13 mins)

“Consider taking your beloved to Baffin Island, she’s literally surrounded by nothing,” the deadpan narrator says in the Wes Anderson-esque intro to Vacation in Baffin. In the film, lovers Erik Boomer, a famous expedition kayaker, and Sarah McNair-Landry, the youngest person to visit the North and South Poles, embark on a 70-day expedition to the heart of Baffin Island. in the Canadian Arctic, crossing soon-to-melt ice caps, climbing huge mountains and paddling the first descents. The two shot everything in the film themselves and captured both stunning scenery and their own real-life emotions. We see McNair-Landry waiting in a whirlwind as Boomer navigates a massive, never-before-paddled waterfall. She tries to calm her own nerves and support her partner as she struggles with the fear of what might happen and the reality of the distance between them and help. The film is both funny and raw.

Beyond Begbie (15 minutes)

“We put names to places that have to do with the land, you’ll never find an Indigenous place name that has a person’s name on it,” says Shelly Boyd, a leader of Sinixt First Nations people, in Beyond Begbie. The film features Indigenous athletes and guides uncovering the colonization of the Canadian Rockies and the legacy of white settlers who wiped out Indigenous populations and named peaks and other landmarks. He takes a closer look at Mount Begbie, the peak that overlooks the town of Revelstoke. It is named after Sir Matthew Begbie, a judge known for sentencing Aboriginal men to death. Names matter, argue Boyd and others, and we can’t get out of colonialism until we excise the ghosts of the place names around us.

sheri (24 mins)

Carrier rafts have become so ubiquitous in river racing that you might not realize that the modern iteration of the raft was developed relatively recently by a middle-aged mother battling chronic fatigue syndrome. “I’ve taken a lot of beatings from people – I’m an older woman and I build boats,” says Sheri Tingey, the founder of Alpacka Rafts. “I decided to let the boats speak for themselves.” In sheri, Tingey, who was also a top skier, clothing company founder and kayaker, describes the misogyny and dismissal she faced, as well as the motivation that kept her going. The funniest parts of the movie are the snippets of his community and co-workers, including his son, Thor, who now runs the company. They highlight what a fun, weird, and ruthless iconoclast she is.

Approach 2 (23 mins)

Until recently ski stoke movies were often an outdated repository of white dude send off plans, but thankfully that’s starting to change. The filmmakers bring more diversified skiers and a necessary dose of lightness, humor and reality. The opening scene of Approach 2 lets know that the film is part of this movement. It starts with adaptive skier Anna Soens stomping through soft powder on a sit-ski, and making you realize that one of the benefits of the device is face shots. The film has a lot of serious skiing – for example, Washington skier Sophia Rouches hacks the infamous Mount Baker Road Gap, then heads straight to Alaska for some great lines – but it also needs context on how it can be hard to break into the skiing world as someone who doesn’t fit the mold of able-bodied white guys. “That’s the thing with adaptive sports, we’re constantly adapting,” says Vasu Sojitra, one of the skiers featured in the film.

deep in the heart (100 mins)

When I think of Texas, wildlife isn’t the first thing that comes to mind, but deep in the heart showed me that my conception of the state was narrow and erroneous. The film is narrated by actor Matthew McConaughey, whose suave tones border on pornography as he begins to talk about deer rut season. It’s lush, visually stunning and surprising. The film talks extensively about restoration and conservation: how endangered species like bison have come back from the brink of annihilation; how the almost mythical ocelot became so rare; and how people can make the future of wildlife diversity less bleak. It covers the geographic expanse of the state, from the high plains to the ocean, and it looks like David Attenborough’s Earth, if Texas was the whole planet.

The Hermit of Treig (78 mins)

The outside world often romances hermits. We like a remote cabin and a fire watcher. But we don’t often talk about what happens when people on their own get older and need support. The moving film from director Lizzie MacKenzie, The Hermit of Treig, is about Ken Smith, a Scottish hermit who lived for 40 years in a long cabin on the shore of distant Lake Trieg. We see Smith, who is over 70, working through the beautiful and painful parts of living alone on earth, and pondering what the rest of his time on earth might look like.

Where are the haunted places in Massachusetts? https://leisurequest.net/where-are-the-haunted-places-in-massachusetts/ Thu, 27 Oct 2022 09:11:41 +0000 https://leisurequest.net/where-are-the-haunted-places-in-massachusetts/

Do you believe in ghosts?

There are so many scary happenings and unexplained phenomena to at least not let you appreciate the mystery of the paranormal, especially at this time of year. Even if you don’t believe in the supernatural, stories of haunted places can pique people’s interest, although debunking isn’t always as fun as things that simply lack explanation.

New England, with its long history and connection to the witch trials of the 1690s, is full of places believed to be haunted, including these places in Massachusetts. Read about these macabre properties and decide for yourself:

The oldest part of this historic property dates back to 1716, but activities half a century later are what many believe have caused some guests to permanently check into this inn, never to leave. Located near the famous “shot heard” around the world “, wounded patriots were taken to the inn, which at the time belonged to Doctor Timothy Minot. He used one room as a hospital and another, room 24, as an operating room.

It was the experiences in this room that solidified beliefs that the inn is haunted, first documented in writing by a visitor who stayed in the room during her honeymoon in 1966 and said she saw a “figure greyish” at his bedside. Other paranormal figures and phenomena have been reported at the site, including the specter of former resident Henry David Thoreau.

The Bridgewater Triangle is the subject of many local legends.

Seth Jacobson of Wicked Local wrote about the Bridgewater Triangle last month, where he quoted a summary from the Bridgewater Public Library:

“The Bridgewater Triangle is an area of ​​approximately 200 square miles in the greater Bridgewater area, claiming to be a site of suspected paranormal phenomena, ranging from UFOs to poltergeists, various bigfoot sightings, giant snakes and Thunderbirds.”

The region, named by New England-based cryptozoologist Loren Coleman, includes parts of many towns, including Brockton, Whitman, West Bridgewater, East Bridgewater, Bridgewater, Middleboro, Dighton, Berkley, Raynham, Norton, Easton, Lakeville, Seekonk, and Taunton.

NORTH TRURO -- The Jenny Lind Tower towers above the treetops.

Jenny Lind Tower, Truro North

This seemingly out of place landmark is a medieval battle tower on the Outer Cape. The Jenny Lind Tower is said to house the benevolent ghost of the woman whose name it bears. Although her connection with Lind, a famous Swedish soprano, probably ends in her performing at the Fitchburg Railroad Depot in Boston of which the tower was originally a part, a myth of her performance of the tower at an overflowing, overflowing crowd below was bolstered by its promoter, none other than PT Barnum.

The tower was moved to North Truro in 1927 following a fire at the railway depot; it is said that the ghost of Jenny Lind can be heard singing from the tower, possibly in an effort to scare away the angry ghost of Goody Hallett, the “Witch of Wellfleet” – the mistress of pirate Black Sam Bellamy, including Wydah Galley sank Cape Cod.

The Mount at Lenox.

Designed and built in 1902 by legendary American author Edith Wharton, who wrote several ghost stories throughout her career, this National Historic Landmark offers ghost tours July through October to explore the property’s paranormal history.

Mysterious noises and ghostly figures in Wharton-era attire have been reported since 1942, when the property was used as a dormitory for the Foxhollow School for Girls. SyFy’s TV show “Ghost Hunters” aired episodes on The Mount in 2009 and 2015, in which they also reported signs of paranormal activity.

The USS Salem.

Featured in both Syfy’s “Ghost Hunters” and Travel Channel’s “Most Terrifying Places in America”, the USS Salem was the last heavy cruiser to enter service, in 1949, and the only one remaining. The ship was decommissioned in 1959 and is now a museum ship, but even its short lifespan was enough to convince some that ghosts still inhabit it.
