MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte hasjustified his decision not to give Vice President Leni Robredo a Cabinet post,saying he could not trust the opposition stalwart with sensitiveinformation about the state. Despite the tirade, Duterte said Robredo would keep her post and he was merely “setting the parameters” of her role as co-chair of the Inter-Agency Committee on Robredo has asked for a list of “high-value” targets in the campaign against drugs from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and the Philippine National Police./PN The Chief Executive added that Robredo’s behavior and remarks following her appointment as anti-drug czar also didn’t inspire for her to be given a Cabinet post. “So, nung nag sige siya magsalita, sabi ko, I will just forgo with the appointment of appointing her as a Cabinet member. She is with the opposition and she would be attending Cabinet meetings,” Duterte said. “In Cabinet meetings, we discuss mundane matters; we discussed day-to-day matters, security matters, critical issues. Ngayon kung nandiyan siya, hindi ko talaga siya kilala and the way she behaved right after I appointed her is not inspiring,” he added. President Rodrigo Duterte says Vice President Leni Robredo’s behavior and remarks following her appointment as anti-drug czar didn’t inspire for her to be given a Cabinet post. PRESIDENTIAL PHOTO “I never said I was firing her. I said I would not appoint her as a Cabinet member,” Duterte said. “Kung Cabinet member siya and she looks into the records that are classified matters, China, whatever, kung hingiin niya ‘yan, being a Cabinet member she would have access to everything.” Duterte earlier warned to fire Robredo if she discloses sensitive information on the drug war to foreign individuals and entities. “Ang problema, I cannot trust her not only because she is with the opposition. I don’t trust her because I don’t know her. Hindi ko alam kung sino ang kausapin niya,” the President said in a press conference at the Malacañang late night on Tuesday.
Batesville Mayor Rick Fledderman responded during the council meeting on Monday:There has been discussion and controversy concerning the recent five-year Wastewater Rate Study that is required per the Sewer Use Ordinance. The recommendation of the study included a capital improvement plan and a recommendation of a rate increase from 5% to 15%. At no time did the Mayor, Board of Works or City Councilmember propose a 15% increase. The recommendation of the Board of Works was for a 5% increase the first year followed by a 3% increase the following year. Upon considering the recommendation the City Council voted and approved on first reading a 5% increase for year one and a 1.5% increase for year two.A capital improvement plan is always part of every rate review. In this case, the plan was put together based on the improvements needed over the next five years for the Batesville Wastewater Utility. One item included in this plan has been the subject of discussion and controversy. The liner and earthen basin is in need of replacement and repair. The City does acknowledge that upon a more detailed repair/replacement estimate of this item the actual cost to do so is $410,225. The Board of Works has made no public comment on this item per the advice and direction of legal counsel. The Board of Works has directed legal counsel to work directly with the general contracting firm that originally installed the earthen basin and liner regarding concerns with these items.It has always been the policy of this administration to use prudence and restraint when addressing situations that involved potential legal implications. Our considered view is that is in the best interests of the City and taxpayers to attempt to prevent these matters from playing out in the media in deference to the settlement process. More importantly, we believe it would be irresponsible to make public statements about such matters before undertaking an investigation into the facts. We can assure the ratepayers that the City of Batesville is working diligently to come up with a financial solution that will be in the best interest of the ratepayers and minimize any financial damage to the utility. Upon reaching a conclusion in this matter, we will make public comments on this issue.A public sewer rate meeting will be held during the next city council meeting Monday, October 13. (From left to right): District 1 Council Member Derrick Cox; District 2 Council Member Kevin Chaffee; Clerk-Treasurer Ron Weigel; Mayor Rick Fledderman; City Attorney Lynn Fledderman; District 3 Council Member Jim Fritsch; District 4 Council Member Beth Myers; Council President Gene LambertBATESVILLE – District 2 City Council Member Kevin Chaffee recently penned a letter regarding taxpayer funds and a previously held sewer rate hearing. It led to a response from the mayor and some heated discussion at Monday’s monthly meeting between Chaffee and Council President Gene Lambert.The letter we received from Chaffee reads:During recent sewer rate hearings, I asked about a project named “Earthen Basin”. The mayor said this project couldn’t be discussed for legal reasons.My engineering firm designed the earthen basin built in 2001. The project contractor recently confirmed a claim has been submitted against them based upon conclusions from an engineering report commissioned by the city.The report claims the wrong basin liner material was used, the soil subgrade was not properly compacted, and no underdrain system was installed.The liner material was changed back in 2000 because the original specified material was no longer available from the manufacturer. This change was approved by the city. Soil compaction tests were completed confirming proper subgrade preparation, and the “missing” underdrains are indeed installed and readily obvious.When presented with this information, the city’s engineering consultant said if he had known this he would have significantly changed the report’s conclusions. He said he asked the city for these records, but was told this information was not available.I asked him why he didn’t contact me prior to issuing the report, and he responded “I asked the mayor how to get a hold of you and he told me he didn’t know”. That’s odd since I sit next to the mayor at every council meeting.I also asked Ron Weigel for the total amount of taxpayer funds wasted on this quest. He responded by sending me a letter stating the amount is confidential. Apparently both he and the mayor have something to hide.I believe the mayor is using city taxpayer funds for political purposes by trying to discredit me for a successful project completed many years ago. I reported this misuse of funds to the proper authorities and understand that it is being thoroughly investigated.

New Delhi: Neymar has expressed his disappointment after Brazil were sent crashing out of the World Cup on Friday following a 2-1 defeat to Belgium in the quarter-finals in Russia.“I can say it is the saddest moment of my career, the pain is great because we knew we could get there, we know we had a chance to go far, to make history… But it wasn’t to be this time,” he wrote in an Instagram post.Brazil were stunned in Friday night’s match in Kazan, finding themselves 2-0 at half-time and unable to find a comeback in the second half, despite a goal by substitute Renato Augusto.The disappointment freshens up the bad memory of Brazil’s humiliating 7-1 loss against Germany in the semi-finals four years ago, when they hosted the tournament.They played that match without Neymar, who had been stretchered off in the quarter-final win over Colombia with a fractured vertebrae.He came to Russia having only just returned from an operation on a fractured bone in his foot in early March.“It is difficult to find the strength to want to go back out and play football, but I am certain that God will give me sufficient strength to face up to anything,” Neymar added.“Very happy to be part of this team, I am proud of everyone. They interrupted our dream but they have not taken it from our heads or our hearts.”The forward, who became the world’s most expensive player when he left Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain last year for 222 million euros ($264 million), will be 30 by the time the next World Cup comes around in Qatar in 2022.Brazil have now been knocked out in the quarter-finals at three of the last four tournaments since winning the World Cup for the fifth time, in Japan in 2002.The Brazil squad were due to leave Russian soil on Saturday afternoon on a flight to Madrid, before carrying on to Rio de Janeiro, where they are due to arrive in the early hours of Sunday.

The Lady Bears were set to host first- and second-round games.“These are unprecedented circumstances, and it’s just much bigger than athletics,” Rhoades said. “I think the right decisions have been made.”Rhoades said he felt for all of the players whose seasons suddenly ended, and had spoken to both coach Scott Drew and Mulkey.“I think the first (thing) was I’m sorry. I’m sorry because both both had such great seasons,” Rhoades said, when asked what he told them. “The decision is much bigger than me, or certainly any one person, but you just feel bad.” Further changes could be coming for the draft, scheduled to be held in Las Vegas from April 23-25.Major football issues, including playing rules, bylaws and resolutions, as well as other business matters on the agenda for the March meetings will instead be handled at the May 19-20 spring meeting in Marina del Rey, California.___2:30 p.m.Football season is months away, but spring practice for college teams was in full swing around the country.

Wednesday Felix Ogbuike’s 85th goal was all the Flying Antelopes needed to pick maximum points at their famous Cathedral in the Coal City.With 37 points from 20 games now, Rangers are certain to finish Group A as leaders going into the playoff with two matches left.However, Insurance’s capitulation with just five minutes left of play yesterday certainly was not what Monday Odigie and his crew expected as they battle to remain in the topflight of Nigeria’s club football.After picking three points at home in Benin from Katsina United in the rescheduled game and two more valuable away points against Kwara United and Niger Tornadoes, they had hoped for at least one point from the clash with Rangers yesterday.Now, the heat is back on the Edo Arsenal’s faithfuls again as the 34 points from 20 games they currently have standing seventh cannot guarantee them safety. Miracles from their remaining two games will decide the fate of Insurance who returned from the wilderness after 11 years in the second tier league.Elsewhere, Ismaila Sarki’s second minute goal in Minna condemned MFM FC to yet another defeat that has made their top-three finish more difficult.The Olukoya Boys remain in No 4 but are likely to be pegged further back when all the Match-day 20 fixtures are concluded today.In Group B, a penalty converted in six minutes of added time by Samson Obi completed Abia Warriors’ fight-back to grab maximum points after falling to a second minute goal by visiting El-Kanemi Warriors’ Sulley Mohammed.Atilola Tunde Salami had cancelled the home side’s early deficit in the 39th minute.The Maiduguri side may lose their third position when the remaining fixtures of the group are played today.MATCH-DAY 20Tornadoes 1-0 MFMRangers 1-0 InsuranceA’Warriors 2-1 El-KanemiTODAY @4pmRemo Stars v EnyimbaKatsina Utd v SunshineWikki v Kwara UtdRivers Utd v Lobi StarsNasarawa v GombeYobe Stars v K’PillarsIfeanyi Ubah v HeartlandGo Round v Plateau UtdDelta Force v Akwa UtdShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram

An Iowa D-N-R specialist who is studying mudpuppies on the Mississippi River is also involved in a separate study of the slimy creatures in the Upper Cedar River from the Minnesota state line to the dam in Nashua. Fisheries technician, Kevin Hanson, says this study came about because of the muddpuppy connection as the host for the salamander mussel larva.“We’re working on a joint wildlife grant project with Minnesota — and its because of the rich mussel bed that’s in the Upper Cedar River — and the potential to reintroduce the salamander mussel to that area, because it is really good habitat,” Hanson says. The mudpuppy is Iowa’s largest and only fully aquatic salamander.“You can’t have the salamander mussel without mudpuppies — so they asked me to go over and try to find mudpuppies in the Upper Cedar to see if there would be hosts for salamander mussels in the future,” according to Hanson. He says the mudpuppies can be elusive.“We’ve gotten reports from anglers that they’ve seen them — but we haven’t been able to trap them. So, we really don’t know what the population is like there,” he says. Hanson says mussels are an important part of ecosystems and can help clean the water or let them know if the water is too dirty.“Certain species aren’t as tolerant of polluted or dirty water and so you won’t find those in habitat and water quality that isn’t very good,” Hanson explains. “And to a certain extent, that can be a problem with mudpuppies as well. I think what we see is they need good stable, rocky habitat that doesn’t silt in. If it silts in they don’t survive. So, mudpuppies are also a good indicator of water quality and habitat.” He asks anglers across the state to help out if they see mudpuppies.“If anybody catches them, we always like to hear about places where people see them, because it gives us new areas where we haven’t maybe seen them before,” Hanson says. The project began in 2017 and they hope to extend it to 2021.

“Banks often move like a school of fish on ATM fees,” he said. “If history is a guide, others will follow Bank of America soon.” McBride pointed out, however, that consumers don’t have to pay surcharges if they’re careful with ATM withdrawals. “You can avoid them by using your own bank,” he said, adding that most financial institutions post the locations of their ATMs on their Web sites. Another way to avoid surcharges is to use a debit card when making a purchase and ask for cash back at the point of sale. “That’s tantamount to a free ATM withdrawal,” McBride said. The study, which is an annual look at interest rates and fees at some 250 banking institutions nationwide, also found that interest-paying checking accounts are often not as good a deal for consumers as non-interest accounts. That’s because “balance thresholds for interest checking accounts are exorbitant and the yield you get in return is paltry,” McBride said. The study found that consumers needed to have nearly $990 on deposit in an account to qualify for interest payments averaging just 0.32 percent. The opening balance requirement is more than double the $430 found just 18 months ago, it said. Meanwhile, the interest-paying accounts socked consumers with monthly service fees of $11.72 if they didn’t maintain balances of at least $3,316.60. Non-interest accounts generally required deposits averaging just $83 to open, the study said. The average monthly service fee was $2.26 – and it could be avoided by maintaining a balance of just $155.49, the study found. McBride said consumers would get much better returns by putting their money in high-yielding money market or online savings accounts than in interest-paying checking accounts. “Keeping $3,316.60 in an interest-bearing account at a yield of 0.32 percent earns just $10.61 in interest for the whole year,” he pointed out. “The same $3,316.60 deposited into a high-yielding money market or savings account at 5 percent would earn more than $160 in interest over the course of a year.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By Eileen Alt Powell THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Getting money from an automated teller machine can be costly, especially if the ATM isn’t owned by the bank where you have your checking or savings account. A survey released Tuesday by Bankrate .com, an online financial information service based in North Palm Beach, Fla., found that the average surcharge for use of a “foreign” ATM has risen to a record $1.78 from the previous high of $1.64 a year ago. The most common fee has jumped to $2 from $1.50, and at least one bank is charging $3 per transaction. In addition, a consumer’s own bank is likely to tack on an additional $1.25 when a consumers uses another bank’s ATM. At the prevailing rates, consumers will pay nearly $4.4 billion in ATM fees this year, Bankrate.com estimated. The study also found that the average bounced check fee has hit a new high of $28.23, up from $27.40 last fall. Greg McBride, senior financial analyst with Bankrate.com, said he won’t be surprised to see ATM surcharges increase nationwide following the recent move by Bank of America Corp. of Charlotte, N.C., to raise its fee to $3.
