Sally Johnson may stand for House of Deputies vice president

first_img An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Jun 25, 2012 Submit a Job Listing Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Knoxville, TN Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Sally Johnson[Episcopal News Service] Sally Johnson, a seven-time General Convention deputy from the Diocese of Minnesota, said June 24 that she will stand for election as vice president of the Episcopal Church’s House of Deputies if a clergy person is elected president of that house.“I have been encouraged to seek the vice president’s office and believe that I am being called not because I have the answers to the question of how we should change, but because I understand how the Episcopal Church is currently put together; what the rules are; and how decisions are made,” Johnson said in announcing her intentions on her Facebook page. “I understand how to make change work, how to take a vision and making it a functioning reality. I have a proven track record of assisting people in making organizational and structural change in the Church.”“From my work in helping the Church strengthen its misconduct, Title IV, and background screening protocols, I know what it feels like and what it takes to challenge the church’s usual way of doing business. I know, too, the good that can come from persevering in campaigns to change an entrenched culture.”Johnson, an attorney, is vice president of risk management and education with the Church Pension Group. She oversees the creation of resources to help leaders in congregations and dioceses prevent and deal with risks to their employees, members and visitors, as well as to their buildings.Johnson, 59, led the creation of CPG’s Safeguarding training series meant to teach church employees how to prevent child sexual abuse and adult sexual exploitation and harassment. Johnson also consults with congregation leaders and others to respond to reports of misconduct in the church.She plans to retire from CPG by the end of the year, according to a June 22 posting on her Facebook page.Johnson noted in her announcement that she has trained more than 500 people in safe church programs, and trained and worked with chancellors, canons to the ordinary, diocesan staff, other church leaders and seminarians in misconduct prevention and response, ecclesiastical discipline under Title IV, as well as in church polity, governance and canons.“Perhaps most importantly as we seek to work together to change our church, I have trained and/or worked with nearly all of the bishops as a regular presenter at the College for Bishops and at House of Bishops meetings, and as an advisor on misconduct, discipline and canons,” Johnson said. “I have good working relationships with many bishops across the geographic and political spectrum, and as vice president, I would be eager to continue collegial work with them for the benefit of the entire church.”Johnson began working for Church Insurance Co. in January 1998 and moved from there to CPG four years later. Prior to joining CPG, Johnson practiced law in Minneapolis for 19 years. She worked with personal injury and product liability cases, and was an advisor for religious and nonprofit organizations on a variety of matters.She lives in Minneapolis with Kay Kramer, her partner of 32 years.Johnson has been a General Convention deputy since 1994 and currently is the first lay deputy of the Minnesota deputation. Johnson has served as chancellor of the Diocese of Minnesota and currently is chancellor to House of Deputies President Bonnie Anderson.Anderson has said she would not ask General Convention, which meets July 5-12 in Indianapolis, to elect her to a third and final term as president. Thus, an election for her successor will be held during this meeting of convention with nominations opening July 9, a “meet the nominees” reception that evening and the election on the 10th.Thus far, the Rev. Gay Jennings and Martha Bedell Alexander have announced they intend to stand for election as president.Canon I.1.1(b) requires that the president and vice president be of different orders.Nominations for House of Deputies vice president will open July 10 and that election will take place the next day, July 11.The office of vice president has been vacant since Feb. 15, 2010, when Diocese of Minnesota Bishop Brian Prior, who had been vice president, was ordained bishop.At the organizing session of the House of Deputies on July 5, the house will elect a vice president to serve at the 77th convention. The Very Rev. Scott Kirby, retired dean of Christ Church Cathedral in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and a deputy from that diocese, has agreed to be nominated to serve as vice president. Other persons may also be nominated from the floor. If Kirby is elected, he has indicated that he will not stand for election for any office for the next triennium.The president-elect and vice president-elect take office at the adjournment of the regular meeting of the House of Deputies at which they are elected and continue in office until the adjournment of the following regular meeting of the General Convention. They are both eligible to stand for election for three three-year terms in each office.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Zika – The Top 8 Myths

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom TAGSOrange County GovernmentZika Previous articleMayor Kilsheimer responds to the video questionNext articleArnold Palmer dies at 87 Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Orange County Government’s Mosquito Control Division encourages citizens to take an active role in reducing their exposure to mosquitoes. Educating yourself with information about the Zika virus is an important preventive measure for you, your family and the community. Following are some common myths about the mosquitoes that carry the Zika virus.1. MYTH: I live close to ponds, swamps and lakes, so I’m more at risk for Zika because mosquitoes live and breed in those areas.TRUTH: Although there are up to 40 mosquito species in Central Florida, the two types of mosquitoes that can potentially transmit the Zika virus – Aedes aegypti (Yellow Fever mosquito) and Aedes albopictus (Asian Tiger mosquito) – do NOT breed in wetlands such as ponds, swamps and lakes. These types of mosquitoes are “urban” mosquitoes and they rely on humans for survival. These insects are typically day biters and are drawn to standing water in small, artificial containers. They lay their eggs in shallow water and it takes only five days for the larvae to develop into adults. Therefore, it’s essential to get rid of standing water around your home and “Tip, Toss and Cover.”2. MYTH: The mosquitoes that potentially carry Zika can travel far and fly long distances.TRUTH: These mosquitoes tend to travel about 150 yards from where they are born. Females live about a month and males have a shorter life span. That’s why it’s so important to get rid of the standing water around your home. Remember, it’s not the mosquitoes that move this virus, it’s people who move the virus.3. MYTH: If I’m not pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, I don’t have to worry about Zika.TRUTH: Although the most serious health risks of Zika pertain to pregnant women because the virus has been linked to cause a significant birth defect known as microcephaly, this is an issue that every citizen should be concerned and vigilant about in their prevention measures. If you are carrying the Zika virus and a mosquito bites you, that mosquito may contract Zika and infect the next person it bites. The virus is spread from mosquito to human to mosquito to human. Humans can also transmit the virus sexually. Only one in five people exhibit symptoms from the virus, and thus, may unknowingly have the virus and transmit it to someone else.4. MYTH: You can get rid of the mosquitoes that carry the Zika virus just by spraying.TRUTH: Spraying is part of the solution in targeting mosquitoes. It’s comforting to know that the spray’s active ingredient, which is found in many flea and tick treatments and shampoos for dogs as well as lice treatments, is not harmful to humans. Unfortunately, you can’t “spray your way” out of this problem. Spraying isn’t as effective with these mosquitoes primarily because spraying is not done during the day when these mosquitoes are active. Spraying is typically done after sundown because the control materials in the spray are broken down by sunlight. In the evening, these day-biting mosquitoes can rest and hide in plants and under leaves. The most effective way to control these insects is to get rid of their larvae habitat – and that is achieved by eliminating standing water.5. MYTH: My pets are at risk for Zika.TRUTH: There is no indication that Zika affects anyone but mosquitoes and humans.6. MYTH: Certain types of animals can control the mosquito population.TRUTH: Animals such as bats, owls and other birds cannot control the mosquito population. Although they may include mosquitoes in their diet, they do not consume enough mosquitoes to make a significant difference in their populations. The mosquitoes that carry Zika are day biters, so they’re on a different schedule than nocturnal bats.7. MYTH: These types of mosquitoes are new and have recently traveled to Florida.TRUTH: The Yellow Fever mosquito was introduced to the United States in the late 1800s and the Asian Tiger mosquito arrived in the 1980s. Orange County Mosquito Control has been combatting these types of mosquitoes for decades. Orange County has been proactively and aggressively combatting these mosquitoes because they can also potentially carry chikungunya and dengue fever, which produce flu-like symptoms characterized by a high fever and joint pain. Proactive measures by Mosquito Control have always included targeting these types of mosquitoes.8. MYTH: These mosquitoes can breed in damp soil.TRUTH: Damp soil, patches of wet grass or damp leaves are not breeding grounds for these types of mosquitoes. Mosquito larvae are aquatic organisms. The preferred breeding habitat is standing or still water. As little as one teaspoon or bottle cap of water standing for more than one week is enough for mosquitoes to breed and multiply. At least once a week, empty, turn over or cover anything that could hold water. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

Friday Funnies – The Franciois Steyn rib tickler

first_imgFriday Mar 27, 2009 Friday Funnies – The Franciois Steyn rib tickler The Sharks played the Force last weekend in Perth in an entertaining match where we saw pink vs black as the Sharks came out tops 22-10. The Force kept the visitors under pressure for long periods, but the Sharks took their chances scoring three tries in a second half blitz. The Sharks are now in an excellent position, having won five out of six matches, and with six of their last seven games at home. This amusing moment from the match came when cannon-boot Francois Steyn attempted to clear a kick from the Sharks tryline. Force scrumhalf Josh Valentine effected the charge down, but came off second best as the ball rocketed into his midriff. Steyn is one of the hardest kickers of a rugby ball around, with a prodigious boot, one you certainly dont want to get in the way of. Valentine left the field a few minutes later.Time: 01:18 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 30 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Becoming Boykin: How he got here

Before he showcased his talents on a national stage in a dominant 42-3 win over Ole Miss in the Peach Bowl. Even before the seasons as a backup and an alternative in a two-quarterback system, Trevone Boykin was just a high school kid out of Mesquite, an athlete who knew his rightful place was on the gridiron.Boykin’s legend has grown alongside his stats. He’s setting TCU passing records and leading the Horned Frogs to a 20-1 record in his last 21 games. But just two years ago, fans weren’t chanting Boykin’s name, and few outside of Fort Worth thought he’d make a difference.

TV reporter released on bail after six weeks

first_img June 2, 2021 Find out more News Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire Receive email alerts RSF_en Farhan Ahmed Bangash, a Royal TV reporter who had been held on terrorism charges in connection with his coverage of clashes in Kohat district, near Islamabad, since 20 November, was finally released on bail by a Peshawar high court on 1 January.“We are relieved but we regret that this decision came so late,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is wrong for a journalist to be arrested so arbitrarily in connection with his work. We condemn the arbitrary treatment Bangash received from the police, who destroyed his professional equipment.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We disturbed by the reinforcement of the anti-terrorism law on the pretext of protecting lives, and its use to arrest journalists. If the government is sincere, why doesn’t it take measures to end the cycle of violence against journalists and to end the impunity that surrounds this violence?”Seven charges were brought against Bangash, including “inciting violence” under the anti-terrorism law, in connection with his coverage of clashes on 15 November in Kohat, in which ten people were killed. He was even accused of participating in the clashes, which he covered for Royal TV.Bangash told Reporters Without Borders he was mistreated psychologically by the authorities, who held him for two weeks in a room with 17 other people. His camera was destroyed along with the photos it contained, showing police fleeing the scene of rioting and clashes between two clans in Kohat.Bangash, whose first request for release was rejected, has been supported by his TV station but had to pay his lawyer’s fees and his bail himself.Pakistan is ranked 159th out of 179 countries in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
