first_imgBy DONALD WITTKOWSKIA tropical storm churning up the coast is expected to lash the Cape May County beach resorts with high winds, heavy rain and flash flooding on Friday, according to the forecast from the National Weather Service.The low-pressure system strengthened to become Tropical Storm Fay. It is moving up from North Carolina’s Outer Banks and will drench the Jersey Coast with up to 3 inches of rain starting Thursday night into Friday afternoon, forecasters say.Shortly after 5 p.m., the National Weather Service issued a tropical storm warning for Cape May, Atlantic, Ocean, Monmouth and Middlesex counties. As it clips the coast, the storm is expected to pack sustained winds of 30 to 35 mph and gusts up to 45 mph or higher.The National Weather Service’s Mount Holly office has issued a Flash Flood Watch in effect for Ocean City from midnight Thursday until 4 p.m. Friday.“Widespread rainfall of 1 to 3 inches is likely with locally higher amounts possible, according the NWS notification. High tide on the bay side of Ocean City (at the Ninth Street Bridge) will be at 12:56 p.m. Friday, but the NWS does not predict exceptionally high tides or tidal flooding,” Ocean City said in a weather advisory.Forecasters warned in a tweet that there is also “an elevated risk for the development of dangerous rip currents” at the Jersey Shore.Although flash flooding is expected, it is likely to be minor. However, heavier rain could produce even more significant flooding that could pose problems for vacationers not familiar with coastal storms, according to the NWS.“With an onshore flow, minor tidal flooding is possible at the times of high tide at all locations (along the Atlantic coast and Delaware Bay) from late Thursday through Friday,” the weather service said in statement. “Heavy rain coincident with the high tide could cause more significant flooding issues, especially for visitors/vacationers unfamiliar with tidal flooding.”Ocean City’s statement urges residents and visitors to closely monitor the forecast and weather conditions.“Please don’t be caught off-guard,” the statement said. “Heavy rain flooding can impact parts of the island that don’t typically experience tidal flooding. Be prepared to move vehicles. The roads closer to the beach including Central and Wesley avenues are at higher elevation. These roads also offer the safest routes of travel across the length of the island.”Rain is expected to arrive late Thursday and continue through Friday afternoon, but some showers could linger into Saturday morning.

Middleton suggested taking your extra grocery bags along to put trash in.“Just tucking a few in your tackle box or your back pocket before you head out ensures you take responsibility for your own trash and if you see other trash along the way and pick that up then you’re doing a really important thing,” said Middleton.She said other measures to keep people and animals safe on state properties include shooting only in designated areas.“You can choose to practice social distancing, choose to park only in designated areas. We can choose to drive only at safe speeds when we’re on property roads.” WhatsApp Facebook Twitter IndianaLocalNews Facebook Google+ By Network Indiana – May 31, 2020 0 234 last_img read more

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Regifting, the act of giving away an unwanted present, was brought to the forefront of American consciousness during the heyday of my favorite show, the sitcom, Seinfeld. In one episode, Elaine discovers, to her displeasure, that a label-maker that she had given to a dentist friend was “regifted” to Jerry Seinfeld.Over the years, regifting has evolved into an all-American pastime. In fact, the third Thursday in December has been officially designated “National Regifting Day” due to the preponderance of office party gifts (an estimated 40 percent) that are given away to others. But regifting can take place at any time of the year.Should we regift or not, and if so, what are the ground rules?Many consider this somewhat hush-hush practice a form of recycling, but I think we need to distinguish between different forms of regifting that are perfectly acceptable and others that should be considered offenses punishable by law.It is perfectly wonderful and acceptable to pass on a cherished possession, if it is presented as such. I see nothing wrong with giving someone the copy of The Nutcracker, which was read to you as a child, because you are passing something on that has brought pleasure. The bad kind of regifting is akin to forwarding that chain letter email that no one wanted to read in the first place.The little girl who is told by her mother to run into her bedroom and pick up one of her stuffed animals, which is summarily plopped in a gift bag and passed off as birthday present, is engaging in unpremeditated regifting, yet she may be on the road to becoming a serious offender. Those people who have dedicated space in their bedroom, with tiers of value not unlike that of the food pyramid, are guilty without an explanation.I would need the acumen and foresight embodied by all three wise men to figure out how to get these unwanted gifts and that legendary fruitcake out of orbit. Some should be thrown out; others, if worthy, could be donated to charity, where perhaps these orphans can be matched with the right person.But before you decide to recirculate that slightly mangy pseudo-suede address book in a preposterous color that saw better days a decade ago or that tie clip forged from an exotic alloy of metal bordering on plastic, grab that gift horse by the tail, look it squarely in the mouth, and consider what the recipient will be beholding.If the item is new, and shows no signs of being toyed with by your dog or the vagaries of time, and it is something that you think that the person might truly enjoy, then by all means, pass it on. Every present doesn’t have to be a big one, and in these tough economic times, a holiday card with heartfelt sentiments can be enough. On any celebratory occasion, what you set in motion should at least put a smile on someone’s face, and to do that, the selection must come from the heart.Here are some tale-tell signs that you’ve been regifted, all of which my family and I  have personally experienced:1) You unwrap the gift and cannot figure out what it is. Chances are the former recipient couldn’t tell either and decided to pass it on. My husband received a small, but unidentifiable heavy metal thingamajig last Christmas. Was it a paperweight? Objet d’art? I say, white elephant!2) You received an article of clothing which, although NWT (new with price tags), is not your size, and it is a color that that the giver is well aware is not flattering on you. To boot, it’s more provocative or avant-garde than is customarily your style. You’re immediately informed where it was purchased “in case you need to return it.” A dead give-away: the giver recently celebrated her birthday.3) Your friends’ reaction suggests that they were taken off guard by the generosity of your gift, and they excuse themselves and return from their bedroom with a generic basket of cheer, saying that they forgot to give you this. Oh, well!4) The gift looks more than vaguely familiar. A relative who will remain nameless was astounded to receive a necklace that she had lovingly chosen for a friend.5) There’s a gift card, and it’s not made out to you.6) You find a piece of old wrapping paper still attached to the box.7) It’s hard to see the glass as more than half full when the bottle of wine you received as a gift is several glasses short.8) The gift has clearly been used or it is missing parts. One year we were less delighted with a set of crystal wine glasses once we noticed that they had already been put to service  and only perfunctorily washed.9) You receive confectioneries such as a huge chocolate Christmas tree or Santa Claus not meant for someone who celebrates Chanukah. Even if it’s French chocolate, this is still in bad taste. We eventually succumbed to temptation and ate part of the Santa; someone took the chocolate tree off our hands.last_img read more

first_img 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Those AHA! moments — quotable lines by interesting and unique speakers — that make a conference worth attending. Add in smiling, friendly marketers, vendors that actually get along, and a city that is known for its live music, a social conscience and being a bit weird, and you might just have the perfect combination for a credit union marketing conference.Here are eight of the “aha!” moments that caught my attention during MAC2017 in Austin TX:1. Marketing is about dealing with the world the way it is, not the way you want it to be.The world is evolving and changing, so you need to craft the member experience for people that may not look like you:• One in six people are married to a spouse of a different race/ethnicity.• 7% of the population is multi-racial, a segment growing 3x faster than any other, and whites will be a minority by 2041.• Family is who you love and who loves you back. Only 22% of people fall into the “married couple with children” category.• 24% of the population claim no religious affiliation at all.• People would rather join a cause than a club. Clubs are exclusive, while causes are inclusive.• You have 8 seconds to make an impact — a goldfish has a longer attention span than humans.– Kelly McDonald, author of How to Market to People Not Like You and Crafting the Customer Experience for People Not Like You. continue reading »last_img read more

first_imgFor Broome-Tioga BOCES, they say they are working on plans for the fall semester, depending on what the governor’s orders are as they dive deeper into the summer season. “We still provide an education for students and we will definitely provide education for students and educational programming at the same level that we’ve had in the past,” said Dewey. Usually students wouldn’t have their last day of classes until around June 19 for most districts in the area. However, schools like Broome-Tioga BOCES and Delaware, Chenango, Madison, and Otsego BOCES will be ending about a week early. “It’s basically giving back the vacation days they worked through,” said Superintendent of DCMO BOCES, Perry Dewey. With school ending early, both superintendents say it will not change dates regarding the fall semester or how their summer schooling programs function. (WBNG) — With schools across the Southern Tier ending the academic year early, local officials are explaining what comes next.center_img “What’s happening now is schools are starting to have conversations and plans around a multitude of options for the fall… be it virtual education or in-person education,” said Broome-Tioga BOCES District Superintendent, Allen Buyck. Instead of ending school on June 19 for Broome-Tioga BOCES, it will end June 12. For exact dates for both students and faculty at DCMO BOCES, click here. For many kids, not being in school can often mean not getting a meal or two for the day. Since BOCES has been delivering and providing meals to families outside of school since the pandemic outbreak began, it says it will continue the program throughout the summer. Superintendents of the schools say students and staff have worked through vacation time such as spring break as ordered by Governor Cuomo. With the combination of that and end-of-year exams being cancelled, the schools have met the required number of days for the year.last_img read more
