Sunday’s ‘Meet the Press’ showed one of the many reasons Republicans need to lose Georgia runoffs

first_imgThat tells you what to expect if they hold the Senate on Jan. 5: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will keep upholding the basic values Trump has brought to the table. McConnell will obstruct and blockade and prevent President Biden from getting anything done for the nation. Republicans will hurt the public in order to hurt Democratic election chances going forward, just as they are right this instant hurting the public by not challenging Trump to accept his defeat and begin the transition process. Republicans will do anything to win. But Democrats have to find a way to beat them. Republicans have spent the past four years doing Trump’s bidding, whether because they liked what they got from him enough to overlook what they didn’t like, or because secretly even those of them who sometimes pretend disapproval at his worst abuses are in their heart of hearts on board with every bit of Trump’s Trumpiness.And now, with national security and pandemic response on the line in a presidential transition, they’re still unwilling to challenge him. Be it simple fear, be it agreement with his efforts to overturn the results of the election, be it those two Georgia Senate seats, Republicans are not willing to do the right thing.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

BCEF donates $20,000 to BCSC for Flexible Spaces

first_imgBatesville, IN— A third year of fundraising for flexible learning spaces (FLS) in the local public schools has culminated in a $20,000 donation from the Batesville Community Education Foundation (BCEF) to the Batesville Community School Corporation (BCSC). In recognition of that financial commitment from BCEF, the John A. Hillenbrand Foundation, and the CREATE Foundation, as part of a larger project benefiting all the local schools, will also be donating a combination of $28,000 to this project, bringing the total donated to BCSC from the three foundations to $48,000, according to BCEF executive director Anne Wilson.This marks the third major donation from BCEF to BCSC for flexible learning spaces and brings the total donated by the education foundation itself to $70,000. Prior years’ funding from BCEF has been used for a complete transformation of one Batesville High School (BHS) English room in 2017 and, in 2018, three first-grade rooms were affected at Batesville Primary School (BPS) and a variety of pieces were placed in all third-grade classrooms at Batesville Intermediate School (BIS). Money from the 2019 donation is earmarked for pieces in all Batesville Middle School (BMS) sixth-grade classrooms ($15,000) and a donation toward components in the BIS Media Center ($5,000). In addition, the $28,000 from the John A. Hillenbrand Foundation and the CREATE Foundation will be divided among each of the four BCSC buildings, each receiving $7,000 for FLS renovations.“The willingness of BCEF to increase its funding to $20,000 so those dollars could be leveraged to help more students reflects the depth of commitment of this organization to education,” said Paul Ketcham, BCSC superintendent. “BCEF’s pledge indicated to the other two foundations that our school corporation had the backing to support another large-scale donation from them. We are blessed to live in a community where three organizations are willing to make significant financial contributions to help students.”“BCEF would like to thank the John A. Hillenbrand Foundation and the CREATE Foundation for working with our organization to expand the impact on students,” Wilson said. “These flexible space transformations are expensive, and with the three foundations collaborating like this, we are moving more quickly toward flexibility in every single classroom. That’s a phenomenal achievement.”last_img read more

India’s winning run continues at Royal Birkdale

first_img2 Sep 2014 India’s winning run continues at Royal Birkdale India Clyburn has continued her fantastic run of form with a four-under par total and a five-shot win in the Royal Birkdale Scratch Trophy.The 17-year-old England international (pictured) set up her success in the prestigious scratch event with a four-under par 71 in the first round, followed by level par in the second.“It’s a great thing to win,” said India, from Woodhall Spa. “Royal Birkdale is so prestigious and it’s great to have my name on the board.”She added: “I had a nice four under in the morning, in the wind and rain! I was drenched. The afternoon was a bit up and down, I shot level but I had a double and triple, both times because I was stuck in a bunker. But I managed to get back with a few birdies and the whole day was good.”Her closest challenger was Emma Goddard (Royal Liverpool), who was one over par. She was followed by Hollie Vizard (Pleasington) and Emily Coleman (Trentham) who were both four-over.This is the latest in a line of successes for India which began in July when she won the Scottish junior stroke play on 15-under par, with a winning margin of 12 shots.She followed up last month with a two-stroke win in the English girls’ championship and went on to become England’s top scorer in the Girls’ Home Internationals. She had a perfect record of six wins out of six and helped the team to their seventh successive win in the tournament.Now, she’s got two more big dates this month, having been selected for the England team for the Ladies’ Home Internationals, from September 17-19, and to represent England in the World Girls’ Championship in Canada from September 26. “I’m really looking forward to it all,” she said.last_img read more
