Long line of speakers at Prairie Village City Council ask for removal of pit bull ban

first_imgA long line of Prairie Village residents, along with veterinarians from area clinics, testified before the Prairie Village City Council Thursday, asking that the city’s ban on pit bull breeds be lifted.More than 30 people took the opportunity to speak to the council and all but one favored lifting the city’s current ban on pit bulls in the city. Most of the speakers were Prairie Village residents plus a scattering of people who were involved with animals either as veterinarians or dog trainers.The council chambers were overflowing for the discussion with people lining up into the hallway outside to get a chance to speak or listen to the testimony.Courtney Thomas, the President and CEO of Great Plains SPCA was among those who spoke. “I can tell you with confidence that the pit bull is a breed that I fear least,” Thomas said. She was one of several speakers who pointed to peer reviewed journals and research that said pit bulls do not pose an extraordinary threat.Thomas told the council that Great Plains serves 35,000 animals in the metro. “I know this conversation has been one of emotion,” she said, telling the council it has the opportunity to move out of an “archaic” practice. She said without DNA testing, an animal’s breed is a “best guess.”Prairie Village is one of three cities in Johnson County that still have the breed ban, Thomas said, while 19 have adopted breed neutral laws.One speaker recounted her experience of a neighbor’s pit bull attacking and killing a dog in her yard. She was the only one asking the city to maintain the current law.A few Prairie Village residents said they were “embarrassed” by the ban. Veterinarians and dog trainers said their experience with pit bulls and the research on breeds showed no greater threat or aggression from the breed. Ashley Flores who is director of animal behavior at Great Plains was among those saying no correlation exists between aggression and the breeds.The speakers consumed the time for the city council’s committee of the whole Monday and council members did not have time to talk about their reaction to the testimony. It is expected to be back on the agenda at the next council meeting.last_img read more

Corwin and Spec finding success

first_imgThe two both had successful freshman seasons, as Spec was named to the All-Big Ten first team and Corwin picked up 25 doubles wins, tied for the seventh most in a single season in program history. The two both came in the Gophers 2014 recruiting class and are currently roommates. “I’ve been telling them to keep the intensity up and to make sure they are engaged while practicing,” associate head coach Urban Ljubic said.  Corwin was most often paired with senior Leandro Toledo last year, who finished his career 11th all-time in doubles victories at Minnesota. Spec was most often paired with senior Eric Frueh, though he and Corwin competed together in two matches their freshman year. They won one, and the other wasunfinished.  Corwin serves well for the duo, with his 6-foot-2-inch frame helping him get extra velocity on the ball. Spec returns well and said the pair’s skills go well together. Corwin and Spec did not travel to the team’s last tournament, the Big Ten Indoors. They’ve been solely focused on the national meet instead. The two were often not paired together in doubles, however. “They are both serving pretty big serves, and they both return well,” Ljubic said. “Those are the two most important shots in doubles, and I think they can do well by going bigon those two. And if they convert, they will be a pretty decent threat.” Corwin and Spec finding successThe sophomores are undefeated as a pair in doubles so far in collegiate matches.Joe SulikGophers tennis players Matic Spec, left, and Felix Corwin pose in the Baseline Tennis Center on Monday afternoon. Jack WhiteNovember 11, 2015Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintSophomores Felix Corwin and Matic Spec have been perfect as a pair so far in doubles. “We just clicked very well together,” Spec said. “Our games complement each other’s pretty well. We just won the regionals. We played really big, served big, returned big. When we were comfortable and confident in that, we were able to put pressure on our opponents.” The duo is 6-0 together, with five of those six victories in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Central Regionals, which ended Oct. 19. That performance gave them a bid to the ITA National Indoors in Flushing Meadows, N.Y., this weekend. “I know that if I don’t make a return, there’s a high chance that he’s going to make a shot or two, which means that I don’t have to execute on every shot I have,” Spec said. No Gophers doubles pair has ever won the National Indoors tournament. “We’ve had really good chemistry when we’ve played together,” Corwin said. “So I don’t think [inexperience is] a huge factor, and I think we’re as prepared as we can be going into it.” Ljubic will travel with the pair to the tournament. He said he likes the pair’s chances at the event. With the tournament looming, head coach Geoff Young didn’t travel with the team to its latest tournament, instead staying behind to prepare Corwin and Spec.last_img read more

Jeppesen Revolutionizes ENC Licensing with New Solution

first_imgJeppesen has revolutionized the navigational chart industry by introducing FlatFee licensing for its official Electronic Navigation Charts (ENCs). Jeppesen FlatFee makes accessing and using ENCs easy, cost effective and planning friendly.Based on input from a wide range of its maritime customers, Jeppesen FlatFee was developed in order to meet the growing need for flexible, expandable navigation solutions that help mariners more accurately predict annual charting costs.Jeppesen FlatFee lets mariners purchase some or all of nine worldwide zones at an affordable fixed price. Once purchased, vessels are able to view and use all charts, for both voyage planning and navigation, without limitations for a subscription term of one year. This helps mariners improve safety and ENC handling, while simplifying Port State Controls and ensuring predictable charting costs. If sailing needs change, additional zone subscriptions can be added without having to create new licenses — making Jeppesen FlatFee an extremely flexible and expandable chart licensing option. Jeppesen uses a variation of existing licensing methods to ensure accurate processing of Hydrographic Office commissions.“Initial reports from vessels testing our FlatFee licensing have been overwhelmingly positive,” said Gary Minard, Jeppesen director, global marine sales and marketing. “This new solution is better meeting our customers’ needs by helping overcome both the hassles and unpredictable costs associated with using ENCs around the world.”With the addition of FlatFee, Jeppesen has expanded its global ability to offer mariners innovative bundled solutions that enhance navigation while helping both ships and shipping companies operate safely, effectively and efficiently. Jeppesen’s full suite of innovative solutions includes Jeppesen FleetManager, Ship Report, Weather Routing and Piracy Updates, all developed to work in concert with Jeppesen’s official ENCs available around the world.[mappress]Jeppesen Marine, October 3, 2013last_img read more
