EAU CLAIRE: Ministry supports Mexican dairy farm laborers

first_img By Lynette WilsonPosted Mar 5, 2013 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET [Episcopal News Service] St. John’s Episcopal Church in Sparta, in the Diocese of Eau Claire, began serving the migrant population in 2007 when then-rector the Rev. Leigh Waggoner noticed an increasing number of Hispanics in her rural, west central Wisconsin community.“When I was in Sparta, I started seeing Hispanics and started asking questions around and found that there was a Pentecostal church in a neighboring town, and I went to see what that was all about,” said Waggoner, now rector of St. Barnabas of the Valley Episcopal Church in Cortez, Colorado.During Waggoner’s visit to the neighboring town, a man approached her and expressed his interest in learning English. It was close to Christmas, so Waggoner said she could help after the holidays, to which the man responded, “’How many people can I bring? Fifteen?’”In the end, she said, five people turned up at St. John’s, and Waggoner and one of her parishioners volunteered to help.She then started Lugar de Reunion, or meeting place, which was a ministry of the Diocese of Eau Claire that was funded by a grant from the Jessie Ball duPont Foundation.“We got trained in ESL, and it was clear that these super folks needed a place where they felt safe,” Waggoner said. “I had a vision for what it [Lugar de Reunion] could be and wrote a grant, found a director and pulled together a board of directors; it’s an amazing place.”Wisconsin’s $26.5 billion, 365-day-a-year dairy industry depends on a workforce of which 40 percent of the laborers are migrants, mostly Mexicans from the southwestern state of Oaxaca, according to agricultural workforce studies.Farmers’ inability to hire American workers made the industry dependent on foreign laborers and has rallied Wisconsin’s farmers around immigration reform, said Jayme Sellen, the government affairs director of the Green Bay-based Dairy Business Association, in a Feb. 1 interview on Wisconsin Public Television.“The result of not having immigrant workers on the dairy farm would be a loss of production of milk. We’d have to reduce the amount of cows that we milk because they need constant care. They need care every single day of the year and multiple times and we just– unfortunately, the pool of applicants out there is very shallow at this point in time,” said Sellen.Migrant workers first began appearing on Wisconsin farms as early as 1920, with larger waves arriving with the workforce shortage that coincided with World War II, according to a brief history of immigration in Wisconsin.Some 1,500 mostly Mexican immigrants, and a handful from Guatemala and Peru, live in Sparta and the surrounding area, and Lugar de Reunion has 300 individuals, from families as well as single people, on its registry, said Alfonso Sanchez, director of Lugar de Reunion, adding that some people work in factories, but most work on farms.“Our main program is English classes, and we have free access to the Internet,” he said. they also offer a distance-learning education program funded by the Mexican government, which provides materials and tutors to help the migrants finish primary and secondary schools through ninth grade, he said.“Most of the people who come from Mexico have low education, third, fourth or fifth grade, and education is a primary need,” said Sanchez.Lugar de Reunion is staffed by Sanchez and seven regular volunteers. It is supported by an $82,000 diocesan grant through March 2014.— Lynette Wilson is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.  Featured Jobs & Calls AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Hopkinsville, KY In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Rector Pittsburgh, PA An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Martinsville, VA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Associate Rector Columbus, GA Submit a Press Release The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Smithfield, NC Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Refugees Migration & Resettlement Featured Events Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Director of Music Morristown, NJ Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Collierville, TN Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Tampa, FL Tags Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Press Release Service Rector Shreveport, LA Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Albany, NY Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Submit a Job Listing Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Submit an Event Listing Rector Bath, NC Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Belleville, IL Immigration, Rector Washington, DC Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Curate Diocese of Nebraska Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Knoxville, TN EAU CLAIRE: Ministry supports Mexican dairy farm laborerslast_img read more

Encouraging Service Members to Save for Retirement

first_imgBy Barbara O’Neill, Ph.D., CFP®, Rutgers Cooperative ExtensionMore than 80% of service members never reach the 20-year mark to qualify for retired pay. That is why it is important for them to “hedge their bets” by contributing as much as they possibly can to the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP). Otherwise, they run the risk of serving in the military for a number of years and having absolutely no retirement savings to show for their service when they leave.Service members can contribute a portion of their pay to the TSP while they are on active duty and can fund an individual retirement account (IRA)—a traditional IRA and/or Roth IRA—as well. A retirement planning calculator available at the Ballpark Estimate website  can help service members determine how much they need to save for retirement.Financial experts agree that people who start saving money for retirement at a young age will see the largest growth in their savings. Service members can start contributing to the TSP when they begin their career. The TSP is savings they can take with them in the likely event they don’t receive a pension. The TSP.gov site demonstrates the value of starting TSP contributions as soon as possible.From tsp.govTSP fund options are among some of the lowest-cost investments available anywhere. TSP fund expenses average 0.025% or 2.5 basis points (a basis point is 1/100th of 1% or 0.01%). Stated another way, TSP expenses are about 25 cents for every $1,000 invested. If someone had a $100,000 TSP portfolio, he or she would pay only $25 a year in investment management expenses. Learn more here. The TSP also offers many helpful financial planning tools.A Roth Thrift Saving Plan (TSP) account is a good option for many service members. With a Roth TSP, participants invest after-tax dollars (i.e., money that has already been taxed) that cannot be taxed again upon withdrawal in retirement. While plan participants don’t receive an immediate tax write-off for the amount of their contribution, they receive tax-free earnings after age 59½ if their account has been open at least five years. Also, unlike Roth IRAs, there are no maximum income limits for Roth TSP participation.Roth TSP accounts are especially attractive for young service members because they have four to five decades of tax-free investment growth ahead of them. In addition, they are likely to be in a lower tax bracket (e.g., 15% marginal tax bracket) currently than they will be later in life (e.g., 28% tax bracket), so a current tax will have less impact than a future one. Learn more here. For a list of federal marginal tax brackets, click here.How do you convince service members to save for retirement?  Show them the money! Provide a compelling illustration of how small amounts of money grow over time. Research indicates that people often save more when they fully understand how savings can grow with compound interest. Here’s an example from , a publication for military families. If someone saves $300 every paycheck, this lowers their take-home pay by $225 in the 25% tax bracket ($300 minus the $75 tax benefit). Do that twice a month and you’ll save $7,200 a year ($300 x 24 paydays). Assuming an 8% average investment return over 30 years from age 25 to 55, a service member would save more than $900,000.This post was published on the Military Families Learning Network blog on February 9, 2015.last_img read more

We’ve taken the drubbing as a challenge: RJD

first_imgThe Rashtriya Janata Dal on Wednesday asserted that the party was united and it would contest the Assembly poll in 2020 under Tejashwi Yadav’s leadership. “With the electoral defeat we’re down but not out…we’ll introspect and do a booth-wise survey of our defeat…we’ve taken the drubbing as a challenge”, State RJD chief Ram Chandra Purve saidafter the party’s two-day meeting ended. The RJD had called the meeting of party leaders and legislators to mull over its humiliating defeat in the Lok Sabha poll. Out of 20 seats it contested, the RJD couldn’t win even a single seat. At the meeting, Mr. Tejashwi, who is also the Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly, said the RJD would go to the people and apprise them of the NDA’s dubious tactics.The party constituted a three-member panel comprising senior party leaders Jagdanand Singh, Abdul Bari Siddiqui and Alok Mehta to interact with party workers and leaders to examine the reasons behind the party’s poor performance in the Lok Sabha poll. The panel will submit its report in two weeks. Earlier, senior party leader Raghuvansh Prasad Singh had said that “the delay in seat-sharing arrangement and uneven distribution of tickets” had led to the party’s defeat. He had also admitted that the “mahagathbandhan was not united.”Mr.Singh,who had lost from Vaishali to Lok Janshakti Party candidate Veena Devi, also said the rift between Mr. Tejashwi and Tej Pratap, the two sons of Lalu Prasad, was one of the reasons for the party’s drubbing. He also curtly said that “those who have doubts about Tejashwi’s leadership should quit the RJD and the mahagathbandhan.” Soon after the results, RJD MLA from Gaighat in Muzaffarpur, Maheshwar Yadav, had demanded Mr. Tejashwi’s resignation as Leader of the Opposition on “moral grounds”. After the RJD meeting, leaders of the mahagathbandhan reached former CM Rabri Devi’s residence for a meeting. Alliance party leaders Sharad Yadav, Upendra Kushwaha, Mukesh Sahni attended it but no leader from the State Congress came. “I was not aware of any such meeting…I’ve come to Darbhnaga on urgent work”, State Congress chief Madan Mohan Jha said. Earlier, some State Congress leaders had called for snapping of ties with the RJD. “The party must get off the crutches it has used for the past three decades…it must work to strengthen its own cadre and support base”, senior State Congress leader Sadanand Singh had told journalists on Tuesday. Other party leaders like Abdul Jalil Mastan and others too had echoed similar sentiments while, senior party leader and MLC Prem Chandra Mishra said, “whatever party leaders have to say they should say it in the party forum.”Meanwhile, imprisoned RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav tweeted on Tuesday: “Opposition parties had the common goal to dislodge the BJP but failed to build a national narrative. The result in a particular election can never alter the reality, in as diverse and plural a country as India.”last_img read more

In the news today Feb 12

first_imgFour stories in the news for Tuesday, Feb. 12———BISSONNETTE SENTENCE TOO HARSH: PARENTSThe parents of a man behind the deadly Quebec City mosque attack have issued an open letter questioning the severity of the minimum 40-year sentence handed down to their son last week. Alexandre Bissonnette, 29, received his sentence Friday for killing six men and injuring six others at the Islamic Cultural Centre mosque on Jan. 29, 2017. His parents, Raymond Bissonnette and Manon Marchand, say in the letter released Monday that the sentence is the harshest imposed in Quebec since the death penalty was abolished in 1976.———TRUDEAU WELCOMES ETHICS INVESTIGATIONPrime Minister Justin Trudeau welcomed Monday an investigation by the federal ethics commissioner into an allegation that his office pressured former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to help SNC-Lavalin avoid criminal prosecution. And while she has fuelled the controversy by refusing to comment on the allegation, Trudeau said he continues to have “full confidence” in Wilson-Raybould, whom he moved to the veterans affairs portfolio in January. He said Wilson-Raybould “confirmed for me a conversation we had this fall where I told her directly that any decisions on matters involving the director of public prosecutions were hers alone.”———FIRMS FEAR HIT FROM CARBON TAX: POLLA large proportion of small- and medium-sized businesses soon to be subjected to Ottawa’s carbon tax worry they’ll be unable to pass along the bulk of the extra costs to their customers, suggests a new survey being released today. The online survey was completed by 3,527 members of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business in the four provinces — Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and New Brunswick — that will have to follow the Trudeau government’s carbon-pricing system as of April 1. The lobby group has strongly opposed the federal carbon-tax plan out of concern it will pile on too many costs for smaller companies. In fact, more than two-thirds of the business owners that it polled don’t support any kind of carbon pricing program at all.———B.C. LEGISLATURE RESUMES WITH THRONE SPEECHMembers of the British Columbia legislature return to the house today for a throne speech that sets the political agenda for the coming months as allegations from a spending scandal have all three parties searching for answers. The two top officials at the legislature remain suspended amid a police investigation and a report by Speaker Darryl Plecas that details allegations of spending abuses. NDP house leader Mike Farnworth said the government will work to develop tighter checks on all officials at the legislature to ensure strict spending and reporting rules.———ALSO IN THE NEWS:— Federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer will host a meeting with Atlantic party members to discuss policy.— Federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna will hold a media availability Nanaimo Mayor Leonard Krog following a tour of the B.C. city’s climate action initiatives. — The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. will release its latest Housing Market Insight on the ownership structure of residential property and vacant land in B.C., Ontario and Nova Scotia.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Cowboys Defense Brings Desperately Needed Win Over Redskins

The Dallas Cowboys defense rebounded to deliver a win to the team in Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.The Cowboy’s defense was blamed for last week’s loss to the Denver Broncos, but this week it was the cause of the desperately needed 31-16 victory.“Huge, huge win for us,” middle linebacker Sean Lee said late Sunday night as he stood outside the Cowboys locker room. “We knew we needed to uphold our end of the bargain.”Last week, the Cowboys lost their lead in the NFC East and owner Jerry Jones called the loss a moral victory and described how import this win was for the team.“I don’t want to call it pressure, but there was a lot riding on it,”  Jones said. “We did not need to lose this ball game. This was a moral victory.”As a note to the improvement of the Cowboys defense, they sacked Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III three times after getting just one sack combined in the past two games against Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning.The Cowboys are hoping for their first chance at consecutive wins this season as they take on the Philadelphia Eagles on their home field next week. read more

LeBron May Already Be The Greatest Laker Of AllTime

CelticsBird • Pierce • Parish1,21363% 1James+11.1Mikan28.5Chamberlain.248 You can make the case that Jabbar — and maybe also Chamberlain and Karl Malone, who had a cup of coffee with the Lakers when he was 40 — generated more total value in their careers than James has to date. So his case as the greatest player to ever wear a Lakers uniform is not totally open and shut. But the fact that James can even enter the argument, a day into his tenure with one of the most decorated franchises in pro sports history, is telling about his stature among NBA legends.It remains to be seen if James will be the Lakers’ lone surefire future Hall of Famer next season; whether he gets big-name help will likely determine L.A.’s viability as a true threat to the Golden State Warriors’ supremacy right away. Whatever happens, though, James has finally restored to the Lakers the one resource they’ve scarcely been able to live without over the years: legendary talent. Thunder/SonicsPayton • Durant • Westbrook56636 PistonsLanier • Thomas • Hill56239 LeBron James in a Los Angeles Lakers uniform used to be the stuff of fan photoshops and NBA 2K’s franchise mode.1Usually accomplished by switching off the game’s trading AI. But now it has become reality, after the announcement Sunday night that James is signing a four-year, $153 million free-agent contract with L.A. It might be jarring at first to see James in Lakers gear this fall — but he’ll fit right in with a franchise whose destiny has always been determined by Hall of Fame talent. In fact, even among the Lakers’ many, many historical stars, James could be the best player who ever suited up for the team the first second that he steps onto a court wearing Forum blue and gold.In their 70-year history, the Lakers have won 16 NBA championships, one behind their archrival Boston Celtics for the most by any franchise in the league. And most of that success has been due to the team’s immense star power: players such as Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, George Mikan, Wilt Chamberlain, Kobe Bryant, Jerry West, Elgin Baylor … the list goes on and on. If we measure player value using a mixture of Basketball-Reference.com’s Player Efficiency Rating and Win Shares, and look back in history to 1963,2For accounting purposes, this was the first season for which we know exactly how many minutes a player split between teams if he switched teams midseason. Los Angeles has gotten nearly 1,200 total wins above replacement3Using the same replacement-level threshold as in Daniel Myers’s VORP metric. from players who either eventually ended up in the Hall of Fame or are likely to be there someday — a number that represents roughly 60 percent of the team’s total wins above replacement over that period. In each regard, only the Celtics have gotten more out of their Hall members, and the Lakers might have surpassed even Boston if we could have also included the contributions of Mikan and Vern Mikkelsen (who played before we have a precise accounting of a player’s minutes spent with each team during a season).

It was part of a pipeline that had flowed nearly uninterrupted since the days of Mikan in the 1950s. But since 2014, Los Angeles has gotten a mere 2.4 WAR from future Hall of Famers, almost all of it belonging to Gasol before he departed for the Bulls. (Apologies to Lou Williams and Jordan Hill, but they’ll probably have to pay to visit Springfield like the rest of us.)Even granting that we don’t know what the future will ultimately hold for younger prospects such as Julius Randle, Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram, the Lakers had never gotten fewer than 7 WAR from Hall of Famers in any five-year span since 1963 — and that dark period came from 1992 to 1996, right after Johnson abruptly retired after contracting HIV. The franchise really was never forced to confront life without an NBA legend for so long until very recently.And thanks to James, it won’t have to anymore. Our CARMELO projection system thinks LeBron will add about 12 wins to the Lakers’ tally next season. Depending on whether L.A. can also trade for Kawhi Leonard (or sign another star to pair with James), the team could see its Hall of Fame contributions be rebuilt even further. Either way, the Lakers’ pipeline of all-time talent is gushing again.Moreover, by the historical metrics, LeBron might instantly be the best player who has ever suited up for the Lakers (in terms of stats produced across a player’s entire career, not just with the Lakers). James is the NBA’s all-time career leader in Box Plus/Minus (which can be calculated going back to 1974), easily outpacing Johnson. Among fellow Lakers, he trails only Mikan in Player Efficiency Rating (ranking one slot ahead of O’Neal), and he trails only Chamberlain in Win Shares per 48 minutes (coming in one spot better than Jabbar): FranchiseTop three HOF players by WARWAR By all HOFHOF % of total WAR read more
