Plans to revamp 3 Hart schools get board review

first_img“Those are beautiful buildings, a capital asset for the district.” But Hart board member Gloria Mercado-Fortine suggested installing a permamnent prefabricated building that would include 12 classrooms and all science rooms. “What you show me here is still substandard,” she said, referring to the renovation plan. “Hart High has waited so long, I would like to see something more.” The school board met well into the night, hearing from Hart teachers, students, parents and alumni demanding immediate repairs. If approved by the board, the projects would be paid for by voter-approved bond money and some state funding earmarked for modernization. SANTA CLARITA – The Hart school board reviewed plans Wednesday night for a $20 million renovation plan to fix deteriorating conditions at three of the school district’s oldest campuses. Under a master plan presented by Rob Gapper, chief operations officer for the Hart Union High School District, flagship Hart High and Placerita and Sierra Vista junior highs will get new ceilings, floors, paint, lighting and furniture in the first phase of a three-phase plan. Electrical outlets will be upgraded and science labs and restrooms modernized. “This phase one is consistent with other first phases done in the district in that it will be a widespread modernization of existing facilities,” Gapper said. Aware of the community pressure that has mounted from teachers, students and alumni of Hart High to give the 60-year-old campus a complete revamp, Gapper said tearing down buildings was not in his plans. In total, $17.24 million of Measure V funds would be used for the modernization of the three schools – $10 million will go to Hart High, $5 million for Placerita Junior High and $2.24 million for Sierra Vista Junior High. Sierra Vista would also be using $3.36 million of its state modernization dollars. Gapper described the district’s efforts to find funding for the modernization of these three campuses “creative.” Previously the district had explained that Measure V funds, supposedly earmarked for the modernization, were gone. But Gapper said some expenses, previously taken from the bond fund, were transferred to other district pots of money. The board also looked at a new design for Castaic High School, already three years behind schedule and expected to open in 2010. Michael Otavka, the district’s director of facilities, recommended in a report to the board that members consider using modular and prefabricated buildings on the new campus to cut costs. The original plan for the high school, that included agricultural facilities and a large vocational center as well as more square footage than any other Hart district high school, would have cost $175 million. “This design should bring the plan back to the Hart district model standard,” Gapper said. Golden Valley and West Ranch high schools, built in recent years, were constructed with 24 modular classroom buildings at each campus.

Starting October 1st stricter fines for not chaining up

first_imgVICTORIA, B.C. – Higher fines will now be enforced on commercial truckers for not carrying chains when required, as well as not installing them during mandatory chain ups on B.C. highways.According to the government, drivers used to face a base-level fine of $121 for not carrying chains or not installing them when required. Drivers will now be fined $196 for not carrying chains when and where required, and $598 for not installing chains during mandatory chain ups.The new fines go into effect Oct. 1, 2019, when winter tire and chain-up regulations begin on most B.C. highways.- Advertisement -Last November the government enhanced chain-up regulations to improve the safety and reliability of B.C. highways during winter conditions. The stricter fine increases are to support the new regulations.Previous regulations only required vehicles over 27,000 kilograms to carry and use traction devices, with only one wheel needing chains during winter conditions and mandatory chain ups. The new, more all-encompassing enhancements clarify requirements for all commercial vehicles over 5,000 kilograms; Vehicles with licensed gross vehicle weights less than 11,794 kilograms, like buses or five-ton trucks, must use chains on a minimum of two tires and can use steel chains, cable chains, automatic chains, socks or wheel sanders if not equipped with winter tires. Vehicles with licensed gross vehicle weights of 11,794 kilograms or more must use steel chains. The number of tires needing chains ranges from a minimum of two tires for vehicles without a trailer, to six tires on some larger and more-demanding configurations.last_img read more

Darwinism Animalizes Human Values

first_img(Visited 323 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 What could be more noble than striving for peace and avoiding conflict? Well, now the Darwinians say that peacemaking evolved by natural selection, too.Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” To scientific materialists, there are no heavens, and Jesus was just a teacher at a certain time and place. And yet something within us knows that peace is better than conflict. How do they explain it with their only tool, Darwinian evolution?In “The Evolution of Conflict Resolution” (, evolutionists at Northeastern University admit that animals don’t resolve conflicts the way humans do. But since animals evolved (in their thinking) to develop territoriality, battle and hierarchy, human peacemaking must have evolved differently. But it evolved nonetheless. Having come up with a model of “host-guest behavior,” the Darwinians explain human peacemaking:“This is especially interesting in the context of human biological behavior because in the animal kingdom, territoriality or ownership norms are ubiquitous.”And so, how and why did the host-guest norm evolve into the more socially accepted conflict resolution in human beings, and how might that affect the future? The research suggests that this is due to the dynamic nature of the social network which allows actors to choose their interaction partners. This entails that insofar ownership and territoriality are probably widespread due to the intrinsic importance of holding resources or the value of owning a territory rather than as a convention for avoiding conflict. Riedl and his fellow researchers are hard at work to unveil additional details about the evolutionary dynamics of when or where certain conventions may arise.In recent days, we are witnessing major peacemaking efforts around the world. Jared Kushner spoke today in Jerusalem about peacemaking efforts between Israel and the Palestinians (YouTube), surrounded by eminent leaders who applauded these values. President Trump is working to avoid nuclear conflict by meeting next month with the North Korean communist dictator. To the Darwinists, these are simply biological networks that have reached a temporary equilibrium. Peacemaking efforts are mere conventions that work out for a time, but are dynamic measures of what organisms prefer under evolving circumstances. Ultimately, they have no meaning or content. They are just natural manifestations of the Stuff Happens Law (natural selection).Of course, Darwinians of yesteryear thought that conflict was the means of evolutionary progress. Survival of the fittest required the strong to dominate the weak. We all know where that led. In today’s kinder, gentler Darwinism, cooperation is valued. This shows that evolutionary theory itself evolves. Either way, human behaviors have no ultimate meaning. Neither does reasoning about evolutionary theory. If today’s cooperative Darwinism evolves into something vastly different, such as deeper conflict or extinction, so be it.To any Darwinians reading this who object to our characterization of natural selection as the “Stuff Happens Law,” listen to population geneticist Andrew Jones on ID the Future 25 April 2018. He affirms that many of today’s Darwinians discount the role of natural selection, favoring genetic drift instead. And what is genetic drift? Random chance! Stuff happens.last_img read more
