|Congressman Larson Announces The America Wins ActInquiring News / 18 h. 28 min. ago more|
Larson Announces The America Wins Act A $1 Trillion Infrastructure Proposal that would pave the way for the I-84/I-91 Tunnel Proposal, and other projects like it, nationwide East Hartford, CT – Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) announced the America Wins Act, a $1 trillion proposal to rebuild the nation’s crumbling infrastructure and to create millions of jobs for the middle class over the next decade. “At a time when the American people are yearning for solutions, we have an extraordinary opportunity to put the country to work rebuilding our infrastructure. As a nation, we have spent trillions of dollars overseas while other countries have invested in their infrastructure. Meanwhile, our infrastructure – once the envy of the world – has fallen into a state of disrepair. The American Society of Civil Engineers recently gave our infrastructure a grade of ‘D+’ – that is simply unacceptable. I am introducing the America Wins Act in order to repair our crumbling roads and bridges and to jump start transformative projects that can solve our infrastructure challenges. This is a jobs program for the middle class and it is fully paid for without adding to the national debt. It is time to invest in our infrastructure and invest in America,” said Larson. “We hear a lot about infrastructure proposals, but the discussion usually stops when it is time to talk about how to pay for it. Congressman Larson’s plan doesn’t stop short. It actually starts with a long-term dedicated funding source that will provide robust funding for core programs.” said Don Shubert, president of the Connecticut Construction Industries Association. “We have an opportunity to rebuild our infrastructure and to put America back to work. The time to pass this legislation is now,” said Ted Grabowski, president of CT Laborers, Local 230. The America Wins Act will provide a dedicated revenue stream of $1 trillion over 10 years to invest in all types of infrastructure from roads, bridges, tunnels, transit systems, rail, airports, clean drinking water, levees, broadband, and energy transmission. A study by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) estimates that the U.S. is currently facing a $2 trillion infrastructure funding gap over the next 10 years. ASCE concluded that if we fail to make the necessary investments in our infrastructure, we will lose 2.5 million jobs and $3.9 trillion in GDP by 2025. Another study by Standard & Poor’s concluded that every $1.3 billion invested in our infrastructure results in 29,000 construction jobs alone and adds $2 billion to our GDP. Based on these figures, the America Wins Act would create up to 22 million constructions jobs over 10 years. The America Wins Act would: • Invest $1 trillion in nation’s infrastructure over 10 years • Provide transitional assistance for coal country, including pensions • Provide a consumer tax rebate to the American people • Reduce harmful pollution to promote clean air and public health This bill is fully paid without adding to the national debt. The America Wins Act is estimated to raise $1.8 trillion in total over 10 years through an upstream tax on the carbon-content of fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas. All of the revenue raised will be placed in a trust fund, administered by US Treasury, in order to be solely used for investing in the nation’s infrastructure, providing the American people with a consumer tax rebate, and dedicated funding for carbon-intensive industries such as coal workers.

|Springfield Detailer Selected to Detail Original Presidential Jet Air Force OneInquiring News / 18 h. 35 min. ago more|
Springfield Detailer Selected to Detail Original Presidential Jet Air Force One + 16 Multimillion-dollar Aircraft at Seattle’s Museum of Flight SPRINGFIELD, MA July 21, 2017 ⎯ Paul Frasco of Pro and Local Detailing has been handpicked out of hundreds of detailers nationwide for a coveted position on the elite Air Force One Detailing Team at Seattle’s Museum of Flight. The 7-day detailing event July 24-30 is led by Master automotive and aircraft detailer and trainer Renny Doyle of Detailing Success and will be managed by the newly-formed Board of Directors for Doyle’s Detail Mafia. Frasco is now part of a detailing team who continues their role as caretakers to the first presidential jet known as Air Force One; but the prestigious team will also clean, polish, and apply protective coatings to 16 additional aircraft on display at the museum. Those planes include the now retired supersonic Concorde Alpha Golf; a remarkable WWII B-52 Stratofortress Bomber; and the first “Jumbo Jet” Boeing 747 christened in 1969 and whose engine rings haven’t been polished since it came to the museum. career where I expected to be detailing historical, multimillion-dollar museum treasure,” says Frasco. “I am honored to be joining such an exclusive team of experienced high-end detailers and to have the opportunity to polish such an iconic piece of American aviation history.” The annual Air Force One Detailing project has become one of the most prestigious detailing projects on record. “When this project began nearly 15 years ago with a Bush Administration official asking me to save an icon of aviation history that was falling into ruin on the tarmac, I had only five detailers who had trained under me and whom I trusted on such a project,” says Doyle. “We were horrified at the condition of the aircraft, which had served as a flying Oval Office for Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon. Having been entrusted into the Team’s care through 2020, there is no room for mistakes on multimillion-dollar aircraft, and I can only trust the most skilled and talented detailers like Paul to help us keep her maintained.” Air Force One Known as Special Air Missions (SAM) 970, the first Air Force One presidential jet entertained many international VIPs such as Nikita Khrushchev and Henry Kissinger. For more than a decade, it lived on the open tarmac exposed to Seattle’s notorious climate. In spite of the team’s initial success back in 2003, it has taken more than a dozen years to restore it to as close to its natural glory as possible. In just the last year, the plane has been relocated under a covered hangar in the new open-air Airpark Pavilion, but it is still exposed to Seattle’s dampness. The team has entered into a “preservation” rather than restoration stage with the plane, and it still requires an annual cleaning and polishing – a responsibility assigned exclusively to Doyle’s Air Force One Detailing Team until 2020. WWII B-52G Stratofortress Last year, the Team, polished the WWII B-29 Superfortress “T-Square” and received commemorative mission patches from a WWII widow whose husband flew the plane. This year, they will polish an all-aluminum WWII B-52G Stratofortress, America’s first long-range, swept-wing heavy bomber that began as an intercontinental, high-altitude nuclear bomber. The US Air Force deployed the plane in 1955 and it saw active duty during the Vietnam War as part of operation Bullet Shot/Linebacker. It spent its entire life in-service with Strategic Air Command. Supersonic Concorde Alpha Golf The 2014 Team was the first to detail the supersonic Concorde Alpha Golf since its retirement in 2003. Due to its substantial length and the iconic shape of its slender delta wings and fuselage, the 204-foot luxury jetliner has always presented huge challenges for the Team. Boeing 747 “Jumbo Jet” The team has cleaned the Boeing 747 “Jumbo Jet” in the past but this will be the first year they have polished the engine rings on the 300-ton jet. Standing taller than a 6-story building, the 747 is one of the most recognizable jets in existence and answered one of the first calls for the growing demand for air travel and the need for a large, mainstream passenger jet.

|MDC ANNOUNCES NAME OF TUNNEL BORING MACHINEInquiring News / 47 d. 20 h. 30 min. ago more|
HARTFORD, CT – The Metropolitan District (MDC) announced the name of the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) as part of a naming contest held at the Environmental Sciences Magnet School at Mary Hooker in Hartford. The TBM is designed to bore a tunnel from Hartford to West Hartford as part of the South Hartford Conveyance and Storage Tunnel (SHCST) project, a four-mile long deep rock tunnel designed to store combined wastewater and stormwater during rain events to minimize sewage overflows into local waterways and the Connecticut River. The tunnel is a key component of the MDC’s Clean Water Project. Traditionally, a TBM does not start work until it is given a name and is usually named after a woman as a sign of good luck for the project ahead. The school was chosen by the MDC for the naming contest as when completed, the tunnel will travel under the school campus. In addition, the school’s environmental science curriculum was a logical fit. 6th grader’s essay wins naming contest for MDC Tunnel Project…From Left to Right – Environmental Sciences Magnet School at Mary Hooker Principal Lindsey Thompson, MDC Tunnel Boring Machine naming contest winner Cylese Diaz and finalists Jirmani Muth and Priscilla Soto. In March, the MDC gave an interactive presentation to the students explaining the purpose of the SHCST project. MDC staff worked with school faculty to organize a contest where students submitted essays with supporting arguments for why the name they came up with should be chosen for the TBM. After the contest was narrowed to three finalists, the students voted on their favorite name. In her winning essay, 6th grader Cylese Diaz submitted the name “Iris”, citing that the name originated from the Greek definition of the word “rainbow”, and from the Greek goddess who personified the rainbow. The author stated that the tunnel will allow everyone to enjoy the “rainbow, which appears after the storm” as its function is to collect stormwater and wastewater during rain events. MDC representatives for the project attended an event at the school and presented Cylese with an award for her essay. Principal Lyndsey Thompson stated, “Environmental Sciences Magnet School at Mary Hooker is pleased to have been chosen to have their students name the Tunnel Boring Machine with MDC and to be able to learn from the entire tunnel digging project! These are the experiences we look for to help our students see how what they are learning in school directly applies to the world around them!” “We are excited to partner with a Hartford school to commemorate the naming of the machine that will build the MDC’s historic tunnel,” said MDC CEO Scott Jellison. Construction on the project is underway and the TBM is scheduled to arrive this Fall.
|Bridgeport’s Black Rock Farmers Market Kicks off 4th SeasonInquiring News / 47 d. 20 h. 35 min. ago more|
Bridgeport, CT- The City of Bridgeport is excited to announce that the Black Rock Farmers Market is set to return for its 4thseason. The Farmers Market will open and be available to the citizens of Bridgeport from Saturday, June 10th through October 7th, 2017. The Black Rock Farmers Market will continue with their Saturday time slot of 9:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. at 481 Brewster Street, Bridgeport, CT. The season will be kicking off during Black Rock Day Weekend, an event that serves as a community initiative to promote projects that enhance the quality of life for residents and businesses in the area. Locally Farmed Products made available to citizens of Bridgeport Black Rock Farmers Market is a producer-only market featuring locally farmed vegetables, fruit, cheese, eggs (with a real life rooster), bread, meats, jams, pickles and so much more. Their local artisan selection varies from vintage finds to beauty care products. Market visitors have the opportunity to start their day with a 10:30 A.M. yoga class in the field and enjoy their weekly produce shopping accompanied by live local musicians. Black Rock Farmers Market Co-Founder Karyn Leito said, “What started out as a simple idea really evolved and touched so many, it was so beautiful to see all of the wonderful stories that go on within the market and the way it directly affected people in our community. Friends and neighbors come up to us regularly and talk about the changes they’ve made in their diet, and their thought process on spending money locally and the difference it makes to businesses. One person can make such a difference and together, we make such a huge impact on our city.” The Black Rock Farmers Market has been supported by the hard work and dedication of two determined women, Karyn Leito and Michelle Margo, who had a vision and saw it through to what it is today. The community market has officially made non-profit status so it can continue to grow and strengthen a healthy neighborhood. They’ve made conscious decisions in selecting appropriate vendors and sponsors who share a similar mission of leading a healthy lifestyle and who support local business development. Their program with the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps, helps individuals and families afford the cost of food at farmers’ markets. At Black Rock Farmers Market, when you spend your SNAP, $1 = $2, encouraging the eligible families to eat fresh produce. The market has grown from the support of a single farm four years ago to eight farms this season. The ever evolving market will include food demos using in-season produce, weekly exhibits from local artists featured on the Bridgeport Art Trail, live music every week from local musicians and unique vendors such as a Kombucha stand and weekly knife sharpening.

|Anthony Campbell: Proud Officer Now Chief of New Haven PDInquiring News / 47 d. 20 h. 39 min. ago more|
New Haven – Anthony Campbell was formally sworn in as the chief of police in New Haven on Tues- day, after months of serving as acting and interim chief. “I stand before you today as a man who is blessed and truly humbled be trusted with the title and the responsibility of Chief of Po- lice,” said Campbell. Anthony Campbell New Haven’s new police chief. Photo by Bill Clark/ Inquiring News Born and raised in Harlem, Campbell first came to New Haven to attend Yale University. He had been considering becoming a priest, but in spring of 1997 he charted a different course. He said he was in- spired by the words he saw on the side of city bus in an advertisement for New Haven police recruits. “Police others as you would have others police you’,” Campbell re- called during the ceremony at city hall. He said he has kept that mantra through the years. Campbell has been acting as chief since September, when former Police Chief Dean Esserman stepped down. Mayor Toni Harp selected Campbell to become the permanent New Haven Chief of Police in May. Since Esserman’s departure, Campbell said he has focused on improving the morale of the men and women in the New Haven Po- lice Department. There was much support for Campbell to lead this department from Mayor Toni Harp who appointed him and from the New Haven Board of Alders. Father Buries Wrong Man After Coroner’s Mistake “You’re a combination of preparedness, compassion, responsiveness, work ethic and level of respect is unmatched,” said Alphonse Paolillo, Jr., a member of the Board of Alders. Campbell said he is focused now on expanding community policing, tackling the opioid epidemic, and later this year, supplying body-worn cameras for all of his nearly five hundred officers. “Your safety is my highest priority. I hear you and I see you and what you say and how you feel matters to me,” said Campbell. Campbell said the Tuesday’s ceremony was the second most incredible day of his life, topped only by what happened on the same day eighteen years ago, which was the day he married his wife, Stephanie.
|Marcus Garvey Scholar Robert Hill with Honorary DegreeInquiring News / 47 d. 20 h. 50 min. ago more|
Toronto, Canada – Jeanette Chambers, Hartford-based attorney specializing in immigration, joined dignitaries from across the nation and around the world in Toronto recently when the University of Toronto bestowed an Honorary Doctorate on Marcus Garvey scholar Robert Hill.Attorney Chambers is the daughter of the late Alfred Chambers, one of the founding fathers of Hartford’s West Indian community. Dr. Hill drew a large West Indian crowd from Hartford when he spoke at Eastern Connecticut State University in February of 2016. Hartford-based Attorney Jeanette Chambers, with Marcus Garvey Scholar Robert Hill and Dr. Patricia Rodney, wife of the late Guyanese Scholar Dr. Walter Rodney, at a reception in Robert Hill’s honor at the University of Toronto, which bestowed an honorary degree on Hill. Family and friends from across the nation were on hand to witness the momentous occasion, a two-day event that showcased an elegant luncheon, convocation and fabulous reception, featuring exquisite dining and beautiful music. Among the dignitaries was Dr. Patricia Rodney, wife of the late Dr.Walter Rodney, Hill’s close friend. Rodney, the brilliant Guyanese historian scholar and activist, was killed by an assassin because of his advocacy for the working class in Guyana. “I first met Bobby in 1968 in Jamaica,” said Dr. Rodney. “At that time, I never imagined that he would play such a major role in critical periods of my life. When Walter was denied re-entry into Jamaica in October 1968, it was Bobby who brought a letter from Walter, which informed us about the cowardly action of the Shearer administration. Bobby also played a key role in ensuring that I retrieved Walter’s papers, which were being used and published without permission. His commitment to our family are too many to mention. His friendship has lasted for almost 50 years, and he is committed to scholarship and mentoring a new generation of historians,” said Dr. Rodney. After an elaborate reception, complete with exotic food and African/Cuban music, Hill told local representatives that he “misses the West Indian community in Hartford, especially, Mommy, Mollie Bennett and her family.” He said he hopes the community will invite him to come back again. Hill, who graduated from the University of Toronto 50 years ago, was honored for his lifelong historical research on Black radicalism. Dr. Alissa Trotz, associate professor of Caribbean Studies and Women and Gender Studies at the University of Toronto’s New College, said Hill’s colleagues described him as “an archaeologist of black memory,’ an outstanding and rigorous scholar whose “indefatigable labours in meticulously constituting archives that truly have no rival.” She described Hill as “a sleuth in the service of justice, the highest truth…who has profoundly reshaped our understanding of one of the most significant movements of the twentieth century, and who “is unquestionably seen as ‘the world’s leading authority on the transnational influence and intellectual currents of Pan-Africanism.” Trotz continued, “There is an African proverb that says until the lions have their own storyteller, tales of the hunt will always glorify the hunter. Robert Hill is that storyteller. A captivating speaker and unfailingly generous mentor to countless students, he has tirelessly built an archival infrastructure that will serve generations to come, enabling us to multiply the stories that were not meant to be told. This is what intellectual fellowship looks like. This is public intellectual work at its finest. This is a man whose intellectual acumen, political commitment and unparalleled, radical generosity are gift and example to us all.” University of Toronto Chancellor Michael Wilson agreed: “Professor Robert Hill a towering figure in the study of Afro-American and Caribbean History. He is the world’s preeminent scholar of Marcus Garvey and his movement, and the literary executor of the Estate of C.L.R. James. His entire life as well as his landmark scholarship is a model for all of us. Professor Hill, let me take this opportunity, on behalf of the University of Toronto community, to thank you for the inspiration you have provided, in a world that needs it so much.
