It was filed in November 2017 and cites the little-used Betterments Act statute to seek compensation from TECSC and The Episcopal Church for the cost of improvements made to the properties over the years. That suit followed a decision by the South Carolina Supreme Court on August 2, 2017 ruling that all diocesan property and the property of 29 parishes is held in trust for The Episcopal Church and TECSC.During the hearing, attorneys for TECSC and The Episcopal Church argued the grounds for dismissal of the case, per their motion filed on December 15, 2017. During the course of the arguments, Judge Dickson asked several questions on issues surrounding ownership and trusteeship of the involved properties.In response, the attorneys for the breakaway group primarily argued that the Supreme Court decision of August 2, 2017 does not, in their view, specifically identify the parishes that directly acceded to the Dennis Canon. That canon requires that church properties be held in trust on behalf of the diocese, to be used for the benefit of the Episcopal Church.The attorneys for the breakaway group argued that the court still needs to determine which parishes acceded to the Dennis Canon. Attorneys for TECSC and The Episcopal Church countered, noting that the Supreme Court already made that determination, identifying 29 parishes that acceded and are bound by the Dennis Canon. Both sides agreed that there were seven or eight parishes that did not accede to the canon, and therefore, those parishes are not a part of the underlying case.After both sides had a chance to present their positions to the court, Judge Dickson ordered the parties to return to mediation, even though both sides had agreed at a point earlier in the hearing that previous efforts toward mediation have not proved effective. From October 2017 to January 2018, the parties held four days of mediation ordered by U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel in connection with a separate federal lawsuit. No agreements resulted from that mediation, which was conducted by Senior U.S. District Judge Joseph F. Anderson, Jr. in Columbia, SC.Judge Dickson noted that mediation is now mandatory in circuit court, and it is his belief that because there are “problems of the court deciding church issues,” mediation would be the best way to resolve the “competing interests in this case.” He advised that his mediation order is “global and complete” for all cases before him involving the associated parties (other than the seven or eight parishes that all parties agreed are no longer involved).All parties agreed to select a new mediator, and the judge encouraged them to work together to select someone who is agreeable to both sides. Overall, the attorneys for TECSC were pleased with the tone of the hearing. “We have to  leave open the possibility that some things could change, and mediation would be effective,” said Chancellor Thomas Tisdale, Jr.No timetable was set for the next steps. Judge Dickson did not rule on the motion to dismiss the Betterments Act case, nor did he grant a stay (as requested by the breakaway group) that would put the case on hold until mediation is complete.​According to attorneys, mediation is best understood as a conversation, with a mediator directing and facilitating. The only way mediation results in any action is if all parties agree to a resolution in writing.

Tick tock… time is flying by

first_img Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Anatomy of Fear Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter InspirationBy Mike GillandI remember hearing my dad say, “Boy, once you hit 30, the years seem to fly by…”  I am not sure just how old I was when he said that, but I was probably 7 or 8, making my dad about 35.  Of course, at the time, I couldn’t relate to that at all. My days seemed very long. And the wait for school to be over?….an eternity.  Then, there was the never-ending anticipation for Christmas to come. Yeah, I couldn’t relate to my dad’s thoughts at all. That was then.Now, a most unusual thing is happening.  Young people are making the same remarks as my dad made all those years ago!  And – they are young…very young!  I have a few thoughts about the reason for this phenomenon.  I suspect that the sheer amount of visual stimulation that hits today’s young people on an hourly basis can be downright overwhelming.  There is no shortage in ways for our youth to spend their hours, their days, their weeks… making it seem to them that there is just not enough time in a day to get in all the video streaming, social media, TV, movies, etc.  The end result – kids are now saying what only adults once uttered. “Time is flying by…”Now, just so you know, I am all for all of the things mentioned.  But I do caution parents to make sure that your children haven’t jumped on the train to exhaustion!  A new common site is to see a group of people sitting in a church lobby, or at the airport, or in the living room at Christmas, with each person’s head bowed as they are texting or looking at a phone or tablet.  I am pretty sure that it is possible that all of these neat, time-saving and entertaining devices are bringing fatigue to our minds, and causing a new sense of isolation. And wherever there is isolation, loneliness is not far behind.We can fight this by having a good, old-fashioned hobby, doing something with others that you enjoy – without the interruption of cell phones or tablets.  Breathe – enjoy life – make a memory…and you might just sense a bit of slowdown in your life!Feature Photo by Jon Tyson on Unsplash Mike Gilland is Operations Manager for The Shepherd Radio Network, a group of radio stations in Florida that features the “Christian Teach/Talk” format.  Mike hosts a daily talk radio show in the 2 PM hour called “Afternoons with Mike”, talking to local pastors and newsmakers.  In Orlando, The Shepherd is heard on WIWA, AM 1270.   In addition to his broadcast experience, Mike spent 36 years in full-time ministry as a pastor and worship leader.  As a guitarist, Mike performs at concerts, restaurants, private parties, etc. He is married to Cindy, the father of four grown children and grandfather to seven grandchildren.

ANR offers advice for homeowners with failed septic systems

first_imgToday the Agency of Natural Resources issued guidance to homeowners about the need to take action if they have reason to believe their septic system has failed.‘Vermont homeowners and businesses served by onsite wastewater disposal systems who see wastewater on the ground must take action,’ said Agency of Natural Resources Secretary Deb Markowitz. ‘Improperly treated wastewater is a risk to human health, both through direct exposure and by entering and contaminating water supplies.’‘Many wastewater systems will properly function once the water recedes, while other systems will require repair or replacement,” said Ernie Christianson, program manager for the Wastewater Management Division of the Department of Environmental Conservation. ‘Call our regional offices for help.’The Wastewater Management Division has five regional offices that can provide assistance and answer questions about wastewater systems, water supplies and the permitting process. The new guidelines advise anyone who has an onsite sewage system to take the following actions if they find wastewater above ground:1. Contact your town health officer. Your town office can provide you with the appropriate name and phone number.2. Anyone who has a wastewater system that continues to have surfacing of household waste after the water recedes should take steps to prevent people and animals from entering the contaminated area.3. As much as possible, take steps to prevent surfacing wastewater from flowing toward wells or off your property.4. If you have a pump station as part of your household system, do not immediately pump the wastewater from the septic tank until it is known that the water table has dropped to an acceptable depth. An elevated groundwater table may cause an empty tank to collapse or shift in the ground.5. Hydrated lime (also known as calcium hydroxide) may be applied to help disinfect the area. Lime is caustic so you must follow the instructions, wear rubber boots, gloves, goggles, and other protective clothing, and prevent people and animals from exposure.6. Contact your ANR regional office and staff will assist you through the process of replacing the failed wastewater system and will provide information on how to obtain a permit if one is needed.  Contact information can be found at http://www.anr.state.vt.us/dec/ww/staff.htm#regional(link is external)7. A licensed designer will need to design the wastewater system if the failed system needs reconstruction or replacing. Licensed designers who are professional engineers may be found in the phone book or on the Vermont  Secretary of State website at: https://secure.vtprofessionals.org/roster/default.asp(link is external)Licensed designers who are not professional engineers are sorted by county at http://www.anr.state.vt.us/dec/ww/ST/SiteTechList.pdf(link is external)8.  A guidance document about the general process for determining whether a wastewater system requires reconstruction or replacement may be found at:http://www.anr.state.vt.us/dec/ww/protection/Guidance2011-Guidancefor%20…(link is external) Safe Drinking Water After the FloodPrivate drinking wells that were subject to flooding should be tested for bacterial contamination. Contact your Health Department district office or town health officer for a free test kit and disinfection instructions. Until a test confirms that your water is safe, boil water for one minute before use in drinking, cooking, making juice or ice, washing fruits and vegetables and brushing teeth. This also applies to water that is dispensed by a refrigerator system. Shower with caution. Avoid getting water in eyes, mouth and wounds. Do not allow children to swallow bath water if on a boil-water notice.Residents who get their drinking water from a public system should look for boil water or other instructions put out by their own system.If there is a smell of petroleum or fuel, do not use water at all for cooking, bathing or washing. Use bottled water or water from a known safe source. Call the Health Department’s drinking water program at 1-800-439-8550 for consultation and testing information.For more information about drinking water safety and health concerns after a flood, go to the Health Department’s website athttp://healthvermont.gov/enviro/water/flood.aspx(link is external)For more information about flood clean up and mitigation and to download a copy of the new guidelines, visit the flood page on the ANR website at http://www.anr.state.vt.us/site/html/flood.htm(link is external)last_img read more

Tipp hurlers still in learning mode

Tema Youth Coach threatens to quit coaching due to poor officiating

first_imgTema Youth head coach Edward Odoom says he will be forced to quit coaching if officiating in the Ghana Premier League does not improve.Odoom launched a scathing attack on referee Nuhu Liman in their 1-0 defeat at Medeama SC on Sunday to end the first half of the league.“I’m going to stop coaching because of poor officiating, we were not lacking composure but you could see the referee, any move we make is either a foul or an offside,’’ Odoom spoke to JOY Sports.“Infact it is a very shameful day for officiating in Ghana, we lost because of the referee’s performance, very bad bad officiating. I have been in this job for over 30 years and have never seen a referee like this and because of what he did I’m going to stop coaching.”Tema Youth finished just above the relegation mark with a better goal difference.last_img read more
