Vectren Installs Fiber Optic Wire On Posey County Transmission Lines Via HelicopterEvansville, Ind. – Starting this week, Vectren will begin work to replace existing steel static wire running along a transmission line beginning at its A.B. Brown plant to Mt. Vernon in southern Posey County. This project is intended to expand communication capability between existing electric substations and improve data collection and system performance in Vectren’s transmission system. A helicopter will suspend a two-man crew in the air to complete work on the segment of the transmission line.Enhancing the older steel wire with new fiber optic static cable allows for more prompt, efficient communication between substations when electric service lines are out or malfunctioning and provides real-time two-way communication back to Vectren’s control centers from the field. Using helicopter assistance reduces impact to residential and commercial properties that lie within the project’s path.“We will now be able to interconnect instantly with our transmission lines where we’ve traditionally relied on land lines and mobile devices,” said Brad Ellsworth, president of Vectren Energy Delivery of Indiana-South. “Making such enhancements to our technology in the field helps further improve the service our customers receive.”The helicopter aided replacement effort is expected to last through mid-November.About VectrenVectren Corporation (NYSE: VVC) is an energy holding company headquartered in Evansville, Ind. Vectren’s energy delivery subsidiaries provide gas and/or electricity to more than 1 million customers in adjoining service territories that cover nearly two-thirds of Indiana and about 20 percent of Ohio, primarily in the west-central area. Vectren’s nonutility subsidiaries and affiliates currently offer energy-related products and services to customers throughout the U.S. These include infrastructure services and energy services.

Hundreds of people waited for up to two hours Saturday to get tested for the coronavirus at two new walk-up testing sites in Broward County.The sites, located in Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach, were established to serve communities where residents might not have access to cars to get tested at drive-up sites, thereby making them an important step in fighting the virus in communities with predominantly African American populations.The tented testing areas were scheduled to be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. or until the 200 testing kits ran out. Some of those who were waiting in line were given bottled water.“We absolutely need this now,” said Germaine Smith-Baugh, president and CEO of the Broward Urban League.African Americans make up about 16% of Florida’s population but 20% of its COVID-19 deaths.“It is an unfortunate and painful fact that this coronavirus is killing African Americans at a greater rate than any other group across the nation,” Smith-Baugh said. “We do not want Florida to reflect the nation in this way. … This virus is no respecter of age, race, ethnicity, income or geography. It does not discriminate.”More than 100,000 people in South Florida have been tested for the new coronavirus so far, with the percentage of infections exceeding the statewide average, state data released Saturday shows.In comparison to Fort Lauderdale, the lines for walk-up testing were shorter Saturday at Mitchell Moore Park, located at 901 N.W. 10th St. in Pompano Beach.Those being tested were told they would get a phone call with their test results within three to five days.No doctor referral was needed at the walk-up testing sites. However those tested were supposed to have symptoms of the virus or exposure to someone who was infected. Appointments could be made by calling (954) 412-7300.
Facebook5Tweet0Pin0Submitted by the The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW)State shellfish managers have canceled the first two days (April 24 and 25) of a tentatively planned eight-day razor clam dig due to rising marine toxin levels. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) will announce next week whether the rest of the dig, now scheduled to begin April 26, will go forward as planned. Recent tests have found toxin levels at all ocean beaches meet health standards, but the Washington Department of Health has asked for one more test to be sure, said Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for WDFW. “In the last few days, we’ve seen increasing levels of the algae that can cause domoic acid in ocean water,” Ayres said. “We just want to make sure razor clams are safe to eat before giving the green light on this dig.” Domoic acid, a natural toxin produced by certain types of marine algae, can be harmful or even fatal if consumed in sufficient quantities. The toxin has disrupted razor clam digs along Washington’s coast over the past two years.More information about domoic acid can be found on WDFW’s webpage at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/razorclams/domoic_acid.html.The department will announce the results of the upcoming toxin test early next week on WDFW’s website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/razorclams/current.html. The proposed dig, along with morning low tides and beaches, is listed below:April 26, Wednesday, 7:09 a.m.; -1.1 feet; Twin Harbors, Long BeachApril 27, Thursday, 7:55 a.m.; -1.5 feet; Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, Long BeachApril 28, Friday, 8:42 a.m.; -1.8 feet, Twin Harbors, Copalis, Long BeachApril 29, Saturday, 9:32 a.m.; -1.7 feet; Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, Long BeachApril 30, Sunday, 10:24 a.m.; -1.3 feet; Twin Harbors, Copalis, Long BeachMay 1, Monday, 11:20 a.m.; -0.8 feet; Long BeachAll diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable 2017-18 fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license, are available on WDFW’s website at https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov and from license vendors around the state.
