Councilor blasts city manager for reinstating police officer

admin no comments

first_imgUPDATE, Tuesday 3:30 p.m.: Councilor Pat Campbell met with City Manager Eric Holmes and Police Chief Cliff Cook Monday. He sent an email to Holmes and Cliff Cook at 8:21 p.m. Monday (after this story was filed) and said he now agrees with the city manager’s decision to reinstate Officer Brian Billingsley.Vancouver City Manager Eric Holmes’ reinstatement of a fired police officer last week prompted a scathing email from City Councilor Pat Campbell, who called the action a “slap in the face.”Officer Brian Billingsley, who was fired by Police Chief Cliff Cook in March, was reinstated Friday by Holmes with a 28-day suspension and letter of reprimand. Cook fired Billingsley in the fallout of a Washington State Patrol and Vancouver Internal Affairs investigation of former VPD Officer Erik McGarrity, who allegedly had an inappropriate sexual relationship with a confidential informant, Tegan Rushworth.The reinstatement is the first case under a union agreement approved in 2010 that gives the city manager the final say in the termination of police employees, a call that had rested in the hands of the police chief alone. Under the new rules, an officer can appeal his or her termination to a four-person Discipline Review Board, which then gives a recommendation to the city manager.But Campbell said in an email sent at 4:47 a.m. Friday that the city council made a public decision to back Cook “in cleaning up VPD and ridding it of corruption and incompetence.”last_img read more

Davy Crockett owner indicted on two felony charges

admin no comments

first_imgThe owner of a derelict barge that leaked oil into the Columbia River and triggered a $20 million cleanup has been charged with two felonies, the U.S. Attorney’s Western Washington district announced Thursday.A federal grand jury indicted Bret A. Simpson of Ellensburg on charges of unlawful discharge and failure to report — both violations of the Clean Water Act. He could face up to five years in prison and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines if convicted.After purchasing the 430-foot barge Davy Crockett in 2010, federal prosecutors allege that Simpson attempted to scrap the vessel without first removing thousands of gallons of oil and fuel he knew was on board. The vessel began to break in early December, leaking oil into the Columbia River, according to the indictment.Simpson, who owns Principle Metals LLC, halted the scrapping operation, according to the indictment, but never reported the leak to federal authorities. In January, river debris caused the converted World War II Liberty Ship to buckle even more, partially sink and release additional oil and pollutants into the river.The U.S. Coast Guard then issued an order for Simpson to remove visible oil and salvage equipment from the vessel. He complied, according to the indictment, and authorities believed the Davy Crockett was no longer a pollution risk.last_img read more

Many miles downstream, the Interstate 5 Bridge spans the great river.On Thursday, two mosaic panels featuring salmon fishing at Celilo and the I-5 Bridge joined an existing panel installed last year at Vancouver School of Arts and Academics.This completes the first of two triptychs comprising the school’s Columbia River Confluence Project.Jeri Swatosh, the VSAA teacher who has overseen the project since its inception in 2004, said, “This project is a celebration of our region’s history.”On the panel that interprets the story of the completion of the Interstate Bridge in 1917, a collection of vintage hubcaps — miniscule compared to modern hubcaps — have become part of the bridge railing. A hubcap of an Overland, the first car to cross the bridge, is joined by Whippet, Hudson, Nash, Essex Motors and Dodge Brothers hubcaps.

BNSF replacing bridge over Washougal River

admin no comments

first_imgReplacement of a century-old railroad bridge over the Washougal River is part of a $235 million capital plan for its Washington rail system, BNSF Railway officials announced Thursday.The money will go toward expanding rail capacity as well as maintaining and upgrading track facilities.The Washington portion of the work is part of a billion-dollar capital plan along BNSF Railway’s Northern Corridor between the Pacific Northwest and Chicago.Some of the maintenance work was recently completed in the Columbia River Gorge, while work on one upcoming Clark County project — the Washougal River bridge — begins this year and could extend into early 2016.Replacing the railroad bridge is budgeted at about $10 million, BNSF Railway spokesman Gus Melonas said.The 550-foot-long bridge, which is in Camas, was built in 1908; it has been upgraded over the years.The track will not close for the project; the construction work will be done around the daily train traffic, Melonas said. The bridge replacement will be finished in late 2015 or early 2016, he said.Some Vancouver-based crews already have been busy along the Columbia River, east of Vancouver.“Recently, as many as 200 regional track crew personnel working through Vancouver replaced rails and ties through the Columbia River Gorge,” Melonas said.The track replacement near Wishram, about 100 miles east of Vancouver, eliminates part of the soundtrack of rail travel, by the way.“It’s a seamless rail, continuously welded in quarter-mile sections,” Melonas said. “It eliminates the clickety-clack.”Amtrak’s daily Empire Builder trains use that track.Vancouver-based workers also were part of an upgrade project that started Wednesday on the Oregon side, Melonas said.BNSF also will make an investment in personnel in Vancouver, hiring about 100 new train crew members, track workers and signal and mechanical personnel, Melonas said.last_img read more

Ukraine rebel leader asks for aid ceasefire

admin no comments

first_imgDONETSK, Ukraine — Ukraine’s rebels are surrounded and ready to agree to a cease-fire to prevent a “humanitarian catastrophe,” the insurgents’ new leader said Saturday as conditions deteriorated in the rebel stronghold of Donetsk, artillery thundering through deserted streets.There was no immediate government response to the cease-fire statement. Ukrainian troops have made steady advances against the rebels in recent weeks.“We are prepared to stop firing to bar the spread of the scale of the humanitarian catastrophe in Donbass (eastern Ukraine),” Aleksandr Zakharchenko, the so-called prime minister of the Donetsk separatists, said in a statement on a rebel website. His motive for offering a cease-fire was not clear but his comments could be aimed at increasing the pressure on Ukraine to allow in a Russian aid mission.Russia, which the Ukrainian government in Kiev and Western countries allege is supporting the rebels, has called repeatedly for a humanitarian mission into eastern Ukraine. But Kiev and the West suggest that could be just a pretext to send Russian forces into the region — and say about 20,000 of them have gathered just across the border.Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko issued a statement late Saturday saying that Ukraine is prepared to accept humanitarian assistance in eastern Ukraine. But he said the aid must come in without military accompaniment, it must pass through border checkpoints under Ukrainian control and the mission must be international in character.last_img read more

Vancouver City Council passes oil moratorium

admin no comments

first_imgThe Vancouver City Council on Thursday unanimously passed an emergency six-month moratorium on new or expanded facilities that would accept crude oil. The moratorium won’t affect the oil transfer terminal proposed by Tesoro Corp. and Savage Companies that’s currently under review by the state. While the six-month moratorium was straightforward — a public hearing will be Oct. 20, and it will expire March 10, 2015, unless extended by the council — a last-minute filing muddied the issue.The special council meeting was announced Wednesday in accordance with a state law requiring 24-hour public notice. It was meant to head off plans by NuStar Energy L.P. of San Antonio to apply to start storing crude oil at its two bulk tank terminals in Vancouver, one at the port and one at 5420 Fruit Valley Road. At 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, a preliminary application was filed by NuStar with the city, said Brent Boger, an assistant city attorney.Boger said he doesn’t know whether a pre-application qualifies the project as vested, and therefore exempt from the moratorium.A pre-application signals interest to do a project in the city. During a pre-application conference, the applicant learns what the city would require before permits would be issued so the applicant can decide whether to go forward with an application.Without a moratorium, NuStar would be allowed to store crude oil under current city zoning, Boger said. Jon Wagner, a senior planner, told the council he hadn’t had enough time to thoroughly review the thick packet submitted by NuStar. NuStar has handled jet fuel, antifreeze, diesel, methanol and other products at its Vancouver terminals, but not crude oil. In April, NuStar submitted an application for an air quality permit with the Southwest Clean Air Agency to convert a tank at each of its locations to handle crude oil.last_img read more

EXCLUSIVE 68 offer group personal pension plans

admin no comments

first_imgEXCLUSIVE RESEARCH: Group personal pension (GPP) plans remain the most popular primary workplace scheme, according to the Employee Benefits/Close Brothers Pensions research 2015.The research, which surveyed a total of 259 respondents in September 2015, found that while 68% of repondents offer this type of scheme as their organisation’s primary workplace pension arrangement, this percentage has declined slightly from the 78% that did so in 2014’s Employee Benefits/Close Brothers Pension research, published in November 2014. But, although figures have slightly dropped, the contract-based defined contribution (DC) GPP scheme has remained the most popular type of pension offered by respondents since 2005.Master trusts also remain popular schemes offered by employers, as shown by the 22% that cited it as their primary workplace pension plan this year.Trust-based DC schemes are offered by a larger percentage of respondents this year: 45% now offer it as their primary pension scheme and 8% as their secondary, compared to 40% and 3%, respectively, in 2014.

EXCLUSIVE 70 of benefits professionals receive a cash bonus

admin no comments

first_imgClick to download the full Employee Benefits Salary Survey 2017 EXCLUSIVE: Just under three-quarters (70%) of respondents received a cash bonus in the last 12 months, according to research by Employee Benefits.This figure has remained relatively consistent since we first carried out this research in 2008. That year, 71% received a cash bonus, while 74% did so in 2014.The Salary survey 2017, which surveyed 249 HR, reward and benefits professionals in December 2016, also found that where respondents receive a cash bonus, these are most commonly linked to the performance of their organisation (89%), followed by personal performance (82%), and team or departmental performance (12%).This year, the most common total for bonuses paid was less than £500 or between £1,000-£2,499, both of which were received by 15% of respondents. These are both much lower payouts than in 2014 when the most common bonus stood between £2,501 and £5,000.It may be that dips in the economy resulting from events such as the result of the EU referendum impacted organisations’ performance last year, therefore hitting respondents’ bonuses. For example, although 15% received a bonus of less than £500, just 3% said this was their maximum potential bonus. At the other end of the spectrum, while 14% could have earned £25,000 or more, just 7% did so.last_img read more

Bjorn Borg holds compulsory exercise hour for Swedish employees

admin no comments

first_imgSomething for the weekend: Sports clothing retail organisation Bjorn Borg holds a weekly mandatory exercise hour for 212 Sweden-based employees in order to increase employee productivity.Every Friday between 11am and 12pm, the Stockholm-based office is closed for business as employees attend a nearby gym for a specially arranged exercise class exclusively for Bjorn Borg employees.The compulsory workout classes, which all employees must participate in, differ each week, with previous sessions including boxing, Crossfit, high intensity interval training (HIIT) and yoga. If employees cannot attend the class, for example if they are off-site or pregnant, then they are encouraged to complete another form of physical activity instead.Bjorn Borg, which implemented the mandatory exercise hour two years ago, introduced the initiative as it believed regular exercise would help improve employees’ performance, give them more energy for their working day and help them to process data better.Henrik Bunge, chief executive officer at Bjorn Borg, told MSN: “If [employees] don’t want to exercise or be a part of the [organisational] culture, [they] have to go.”Pernilla Johansson, corporate communications manager, added: “It is a fantastic opportunity that we have; to work out during work hours without anybody protesting. It is a luxury that few people have. The Björn Borg sports hour is mandatory and all staff [have] to do it. Everybody will be challenged to come along and do the best according to their own fitness level. [Employees] compete against [themselves], not everybody else, and the idea here is that we all perform better in both life and work if we are active and fit.”Here at Employee Benefits, we think it would be a brilliant idea to slot in a workout to build up an appetite before lunch; not only would it act as an ice-breaker between colleagues and help us fit exercise into our super busy schedules, but it would also definitely provide an excuse to hit the shops for some snazzy new gymwear…last_img read more
