first_img Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Shreveport, LA AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee] The Rt. Rev. Roger J. White, 71, died Aug. 28 at Froedert Memorial Hospital where he was being treated after suffering a ruptured brain aneurysm on Aug. 9. He is survived by his wife, Prudence (“Pru”) and their three children.White was born Jan. 31, 1941, in the city of Leeds in Yorkshire, England. He was educated in the United Kingdom and ordained a priest of the Church of England in 1967. Transferring to the Episcopal Church in 1969, he was serving as rector of Trinity Episcopal Church in Indianapolis, Indiana, when he was elected in 1984 to serve the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee as its 10th bishop.As bishop, his interests included Christian initiation and the catechumenate, which looked at new ways of inviting people to join in the life of the church. Clergy wellness was another focus of his ministry and he was a founding member of the Cornerstone Project which addresses this issue in the national level in the Episcopal Church.Appointed by the presiding bishop to chair a coordinating committee charged with developing a new relationship with the Russian Orthodox Church, White traveled to Russia several times during the last years of the U.S.S.R. and the early post-communist years.With the Rev. Richard Kew, White wrote several books dealing with the future of the church, including New Millennium, New Church (Cowley Press) and Venturing Into the New Millennium (Latimer Press).He was very involved in the Diocese of Milwaukee’s Haiti Project, which partnered with a parish in Jennette, Haiti, to provide improved health care and education to the surrounding community.His vision for the diocese focused on evangelism and forming people for discipleship, ministry, and service.The Rt. Rev. Steven A. Miller, current bishop of Milwaukee, noted that “Roger served the Diocese of Milwaukee at a critical time in the life of the Episcopal Church. His focus on the ministry of all the baptized and the church’s mission to know, love, and serve Jesus in the world, were manifested by the ministries begun during his tenure as bishop. We give thanks for his life and ministry, and hold his wife Pru, and their family, in our prayers.”Funeral services will be held at 7 p.m. on Sept. 6 at All Saints’ Cathedral (818 E. Juneau Avenue, Milwaukee, WI 53202). Visitation will precede the service beginning at 4 p.m. in the cathedral library. Interment will be in the cathedral columbarium at the conclusion of the service. The Rt. Rev. Steven A. Miller, bishop of Milwaukee, will preside. Nancy Barnard Starr says: September 6, 2012 at 2:55 pm Bishop Roger White, encouraged the Rev. Dewry Silas, who became a priest in the Diocese of Milwaukee. Father Silas always talked about his gracious and support of his journey. It was latevocation. Also when our Bishop Russ Jocubus was not able to do our confirmations Bishop Whitecame to Holy Apostles in Oneida, Wisconsin. A very spiritual and gracious person who supported many.

Joseph Neiman says: September 13, 2012 at 5:31 pm I came to know Roger very well when he served as President of Province V. His committment to the global mission of the Church was well articulated.

Over the last 12 years he attended Holy Cross Faith Memorial Episcopal Church. Let me correct that as he did not just attend but when he and his wife were here they worked on Thursday nights in our Food Pantry and he participated in a Lentan production of Cup of Trembling based on the life of Dietrich Bonhoefferand also regurally attended Men’s Bible study. Even though he was a Bishop, I will remember him, and his wife, as fellow church members.

Rector Pittsburgh, PA September 1, 2012 at 1:41 am Bishop White was our diocesan bishop in Milwaukee for 7 years. After a move took us south, I traced my steps back to him, sensing a call to ordained ministry. We met at Kanuga and the House of Bishops, because it was nearby. He went to New Zealand to speak before our move there, and brought pictures to my ordination. We corresponded as recently as July; he was, as ever, cheerful of full of advice.

Exclusive interview with Richie McCaw, featuring Don’t Drop The Egg

first_imgFriday Dec 23, 2011 Exclusive interview with Richie McCaw, featuring Don’t Drop The Egg World Cup Winning All Black captain Richie McCaw was in London last week for an adidas promotion at Harrods, so we sent a crew along, including the boys from the brilliant Don’t Drop the Egg, to have a catch-up chat with him. If you’re unfamiliar with the Don’t Drop the Egg guys, make sure you find some time to watch their excellent web mockumentary that takes you behind the scenes at the wonderful Clapham Falcons rugby club. When presented with the chance to have a chat with captain tackles McCaw, they were the obvious candidates.Unfortunately Blazeby, 6 sometimes 7, was ill at the time but Archie and Freddie popped along for a fantastic ten minute long interview with the man who is destined for a knighthood. In fact a few days later speculation was rife that he would be included in the New Year’s Honours list.Prime Minister John Key revealed that after a chat with McCaw it was clear that the 30 year old World Cup Winner isn’t interested in becoming a Sir just yet. He expressed the same thing to Archie and Freddie, saying that when he’s a bit older perhaps the time will be right.If anyone has Richie’s number, please let Archie know as there appears to have been a mix up.Thanks to Archie, Freddie, and Fraser Davidson for the great work, an of course to our friends at adidas for the opportunity, and the wonderful gift for Blazeby.

Gov. Holcomb Announces All Indiana Counties Eligible to Receive Assistance

first_img Previous articleDriving Profitable Decisions with Land O’Lakes’ SUSTAIN ProgramNext articleAdministration Considering “Handful” of EPA Waiver Fixes Hoosier Ag Today Gov. Holcomb Announces All Indiana Counties Eligible to Receive Assistance By Hoosier Ag Today – Aug 30, 2019 Eric HolcombGovernor Eric J. Holcomb today announced that Indiana farmers are eligible for assistance under a secretarial natural disaster designation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.This was in response to a letter Gov. Holcomb sent to U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue in July, requesting assistance due to the excessive rain and flooding farmers experienced during planting season.“I am grateful that Secretary Perdue and his team recognized the hardships Hoosier farmers experienced this planting season,” Gov. Holcomb said. “As a result of this designation, farmers in all 92 counties are now eligible for assistance, and I encourage those impacted to work with their local Farm Service Agency office.”Seventy-four counties were designated as primary natural disaster areas. USDA deferred its decision on the remaining 18 counties. However, since they border one or more of the primary disaster areas, they are considered contiguous disaster counties – allowing farm operators in those areas to be eligible for the same assistance.Under a secretarial natural disaster designation, farm operators in primary and contiguous counties are eligible for assistance from the Farm Service Agency, provided certain requirements are met. This includes access to low-interest FSA emergency loans, which may be used to: restore or replace essential property, pay all or part of production costs associated with the disaster year, pay essential family living expenses, reorganize the farming operation, and refinance certain debts.In order to qualify, farm operators must show at least a 30 percent loss in crop production or a physical loss to livestock, livestock products, real estate or chattel property. Farmers can borrow up to 100 percent of actual production or physical losses to a maximum amount of $500,000, according to USDA.“This has been an unprecedented year for Indiana farmers,” said Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch, Indiana’s Secretary of Agriculture and Rural Development. “I applaud Governor Holcomb, the Indiana Farm Service Agency and our state department of agriculture for making this assistance available.”In addition to emergency loans, farmers with existing FSA loans, who are unable to make their payments, may be eligible to have certain payments deferred. Farmers are encouraged to work with their local FSA office for assistance regarding payment forbearance or emergency disaster loans.“Farmers, who have been doing this their entire lives, acknowledge this has been one of the toughest seasons on record, and we’re not in the clear yet,” said Bruce Kettler, Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director. “While we know this isn’t a cure-all solution, this assistance is welcome news and will help those severely impacted.”For a list of Farm Service Agency offices in Indiana, click here or visit, or click here for more information about FSA’s Emergency Farm Loans.

You Need To Know A Few TricksHerbeautyHerbeauty More Cool Stuff Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Ted and Ginger Jenkins Credit: Courtesy of the Jenkins FamilyTed (BS ’65, MS ’66) and Ginger Jenkins—longtime Caltech supporters and early employees in the semiconductor industry—have established a leadership chair for the Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences (GPS). The new leadership chair is one of a set of discretionary endowments being established for Caltech’s president, provost, and the leaders of each academic division.“This new endowment will support some of the most exploratory work in the division and help secure our future,” says John Grotzinger, the Fletcher Jones Professor of Geology and inaugural holder of the Ted and Ginger Jenkins Leadership Chair. “The completely flexible funding it provides—a rarity in geological and planetary sciences—will give me and future division chairs greater freedom to support highly creative and timely projects. By its nature our science involves complex interdisciplinary work for which flexible funding is ideal.”Ted Jenkins feels confident that this type of agility will give Caltech a competitive edge. “Possibilities come up that are not sufficiently well known or forecastable to pass the hurdles for a grant,” he explains. “On the other hand, they could be worth a little bit of exploratory money. By applying extra resources to things that look exciting but uncertain, Caltech has come up with more than its fair share of interesting discoveries.“These kinds of endowments for division chairs allow the whole Institute to go out and do this aggressive science. This, together with the other resources we have, puts us way, way ahead.”The story of the Jenkins gift can be traced back half a century to a moment of curiosity—and, admittedly, some jealousy—during Ted Jenkins’s days as an engineering student at Caltech.“The geology students were always going camping and taking field trips,” he says. “They had great stories.” So he jumped at the chance to take Ge 1, a class taught by the late Robert Sharp, whom he describes as an iconic geologist and leader.Ted Jenkins’s memory of that course inspired him and Ginger to sign up for a geology-focused Caltech Alumni Association (CAA) program in Alaska in 1997. Soon after, the couple’s retirement freed them to travel often with the CAA and the Caltech Associates.The more they learned about what was happening at Caltech, the more Ted and Ginger Jenkins got involved. Ted served as president of both the CAA and the Associates, and he became a Caltech trustee in 2006. He was also a founding member and chairman of the GPS chair’s council, a volunteer leadership board.“Ted and Ginger Jenkins have seen and supported Caltech from many angles,” says Caltech President Thomas F. Rosenbaum, holder of the Sonja and William Davidow Presidential Chair and professor of physics. “The Institute has benefited enormously from their decades of thoughtful counsel and generosity. Their extraordinary new commitment goes even farther to position us as the destination of choice for the most imaginative scholars.”With past gifts to Caltech, the couple has endowed a professorship in information science and technology, and supported diverse initiatives across campus: two astrophysical observatories, the Community Seismic Network project, schizophrenia research, a graduate fellowship and travel funds for GPS students, an annual staff prize, improvements to the Athenaeum, and the Carver Mead New Adventures Fund, which provides early support for novel projects in information science and technology.Ted and Ginger Jenkins see giving as a way to do their part—both for the world, through the discoveries and educational experiences they enable, and for Caltech itself.Ted Jenkins’s career, and even his marriage, hinged on a single conversation that took place in a Caltech conference room. In 1966, Gordon Moore (PhD ’54) paid a visit to Jenkins’s adviser Carver Mead, now Caltech’s Gordon and Betty Moore Professor of Engineering and Applied Science, Emeritus. Mead introduced Moore to his students, and Moore recruited Jenkins to Fairchild Semiconductor International during that same visit. During his time at Fairchild, Ted Jenkins met the woman who would become his wife. Two years later, Moore hired him again, this time as employee number 22 at the start-up that would become Intel¾where Ted Jenkins built a three-decade career and rose to the rank of vice president.“My Caltech experience and connections have been a huge part of the means that I was able to assemble,” Ted Jenkins says. “Giving back so that the activity continues is really what I like to do.”In addition to the Jenkins chair, Caltech has received funding for the Sonja and William Davidow Presidential Chair, the Carl and Shirley Larson Provostial Chair, the William K. Bowes Jr. Leadership Chair in the Division of Biology and Biological Engineering, the Otis Booth Leadership Chair in the Division of Engineering and Applied Science, and the Kent and Joyce Kresa Leadership Chair in the Division of Physics, Mathematics and Astronomy.

Pappy signs off

first_img Print Article Sponsored Content Pappy signs off Skip Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Hundreds of Bob “Pappy” Tolbert stories continue to circulate circulating and Tolbert has stories of his own. He led an interesting life before he came to Troy and his book, “What Happened to Me After I Was Born,” is available at the Troy Public Library.Country music star Randy Travis perhaps sang it best. “It’s not what you take when you leave this world behind; it’s what you leave behind when you go.”What Bob “Pappy” Tolbert left behind was a legacy of laughter and a legacy of stories that will be told and re-told by those who knew him and then passed down through generations.He was just that kind of a guy, said Jim Roling, who followed Pappy Tolbert’s big footsteps as Troy’s Mr. WTBF Radio. Published 3:00 am Saturday, February 27, 2016 By Jaine Treadwell Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration You Might Like Pioneer Museum of Alabama volunteer, Charlene McMahon handles heirloom Valentine’s with kid gloves. McMahon spent time Friday sharing stories about… read more Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kitscenter_img Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Email the author Roling said back then, remote broadcasts were done by telephone so Tolbert had a telephone up in the box with him.“James Woods worked for the city and he had put Pappy up in the box with a city utility truck,” Roling said. “Pappy made an urgent call to James to come get him down from the box. But, because of the storm there was a lot of water and James’ truck flooded and he couldn’t get downtown. Pappy rode out the storm in the box. The next day, things were back to normal. The sales promotion was a huge success.”Prices came down and Pappy Tolbert came down from the “flagpole.”Great story, Roling said but it was not “the classic Pappy story.”“Pappy decided to have a live wedding on the stage of the Enzor Theater over on North Three Notch,” Roling said. “It was to be a citywide promotion. Couples who were planning to get married and wanted to be included in the promotion could register at stores around town. The lucky couple would be selected in a drawing.”Roling said the winning couple would be showered with a variety of gifts donated by local merchants and married on stage of the Enzor Theater.“The prizes included the minister, a wedding dress, jewelry — just an armload of gifts from places like Rosenberg’s and Stanton’s,” Roling said. “Pappy had even gotten a motel in Panama City to donate a room. He had everything planned to a T.”The on-stage wedding was set. The lucky couple had been notified and the entire town was ready for the big Saturday night event.“But, on Friday night around 8 o’clock, Pappy said he got a knock at the door,” Roling said. “It was the groom-to-be. He said he couldn’t do the wedding. He had gotten arrested for moonshining and the wedding was off.”A lesser man might have been defeated. But Pappy Tolbert was not a lesser man. The wedding went on as planned.“But not exactly as planned,” Roling said. “The theater was filled. The bride was escorted down the aisle in a beautiful wedding gown with a veil hanging down. When the veil came off, there stood a guy in a wedding dress. There was a loud, collective gasp from the audience.”At that point, Tolbert came on the stage and announced that something beyond control had occurred and the couple was not free to get married at that time.“He told the audience to look under their seats and they would find a number for a drawing for all the prizes the couple would have gotten” Roling said. “The audience really liked that better than the wedding so it worked out better than if Pappy had planned it that way.”Roling has his own “Pappy” stories. He said it would take volumes to tell all of the Pappy stories in circulation.“I started going down to the radio station when I was in junior high school and Pappy let me be the station gofer,” Roling said. “He let me “spot” for him at high school football games so I got to go to far away places like Elba and Opp and eat in restaurants.”Roling later worked with Talbot at WTBF for six years. Tolbert taught him the psychology and methods of selling and the art of ad-libbing– skills that have been a “tremendous asset” to Roling in his career in radio broadcasting and sales.Roling has his favorite Pappy tales including the time the temperatures hit 105 in Troy and Tolbert was curious about how hot it was in hell.“We started looking for a town named hell and found one in Michigan,” Roling said. “That day Pappy let folks know how hot it was in hell.”Roling said Tolbert had gotten into the home building business. Troy Police Chief Tom Potts was living in one of his homes and the toilet wouldn’t stop running.The chief had asked Roling several times to let Tolbert know about his problem. He did but the problem had not been corrected. So, Roling made a notation about the toilet on a slip of paper and slid it to Tolbert along with the arrest reports for the morning broadcast.“Pappy started the report with, ‘Troy Police Chief Tom Potts said his toilet is continuing to run …’ Then he stopped and I heard him ‘he, he.’ The next morning the toilet was fixed.”“Pappy Tolbert was the Johnny Carson of radio,” Roling said. “He could say things on the radio and get away it. And, he could sell. I believe he could have sold refrigerators at the North Pole. He was a catalyst for getting things done in the community. When the community decided a new hospital was needed, he got behind it and phones lit up at the station in support of a new hospital.”Roling said Bob “Pappy” Tolbert was one of a kind. He made life interesting and fun for all those who turned the radio dial to WTBF in Troy, Alabama.“We are still using the same format for the Morning Show that he used,” Roling said. “That’s how far ahead of his times he was. It was an honor and joy to know him. I’m proud to have called him my friend.” By The Penny Hoarder Tolbert, 96, died February 21, 2016 in Panama City. Roling, Asa Dudley and Tolbert broadcast live from Panama City when Tolbert was 92. It was Tolbert’s last broadcast.Just mention Pappy Tolbert and a big, wide grin spreads across Roling’s face and he starts to chuckle. He set the stage for his remembrances of Pappy Tolbert as “before my time.”“But both of these stories are true,” Roling said. “Pappy was great radio broadcaster and a terrific promoter. He was way ahead of his time. He was always coming up with ideas for merchant sales. He got this idea to sit up on a flagpole until the prices came down all around the square here in Troy. Roling said Tolbert had a light pole put on the square and he built a box and had it put on top of the pole. He was going to stay up in that box, 24 hours a day, until the day of the sale that’s when the prices were to come down.“Pappy did his broadcast from up in the box,” Roling said. “He had a ‘honey jar,’ — a slop jar up there – so he didn’t have to come down.”Of course, people were curious about Pappy up on the pole and the sales promotion was going great guns.“Then, on Friday night before the Saturday sales, a big storm came up,” Roling said. “Thunder was rolling and lightning was flashing.  Rain was coming down and Pappy decided it was time for him to come down.” Latest Stories Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Book Nook to reopen Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

John Clarke, online recruitment manager for the BBC, speaking at the CIPD’s recruitmentconference last week, believes organisations’ marketing strategies shouldinclude efforts to attract new staff and retain existing employees. Clarke said the BBC has changed its job advert style to increase its impacton the page and emphasise the BBC brand. It has done this by giving recruitmentstaff, and those writing the adverts, training, style guides and access to acopywriting service. “We looked at visual impact, wording, key messages and making the spacesell for us,” Clarke added. He said the new adverts are highly-visible andeasy to read compared to past job adverts which tended to be too long, with therelevant bits buried. The BBC has also developed its online recruitment site, which containsbetween 50 and 100 vacancies, to highlight its employer values. The site features interviews with staff talking about their jobs and theopportunities for career development at the BBC. “People can see themworking, read their interviews, and see what qualifications they needed,”explained Clarke.
