JEA could cut hundreds of job, raise rates if changes aren't made
06/25/2019 11:20am

Hundreds of JEA workers could be laid off - including upper management -- and plans for a new headquarters building could be scrapped as the city-owned utility deals with falling revenues.The JEAs board of directors discussed changes they want made to the utilitys charter so it can adjust its business model as the demand for electricity drops. With customers using less electricity due to energy efficiency and rooftop solar panels, the JEA board wants to generate revenues in ways that are not included in the current charter.At a Tuesday morning board meeting, the board said that unless changes are made, the city-owned utility could face layoffs of 574 employees combined with a 26 rate increase. Even plans to move its headquarters to a $72 million new building could be scrapped.The job cuts could go right to the top of the organization.Its actually over 50 of upper management, including myself. CEO Aaron Zahn said. PRESENTATION: Scenarios shown to JEA boardJEA has informed the Ryan Company, the company building the new headquarters, that the utility wants an out in the contract. Ryans regional vice president, Doug Dieck, said that is not unusual.Technically what it means is, they are being prudent with their business, Dieck said, adding JEA told him its full steam ahead for now. Union members at the meeting were surprised by the discussion of layoffs. Valerie Gutierrez of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers left the meeting without commenting.The board directed staff to return at next months meeting to present specific plans to address the utilitys falling revenues.JEA staff said if the city would change its charter to allow the utility to expand into solar installations and other high-tech business opportunities, it could improve its revenue forecast and avoid such deep cuts and steep rate increases.

City Council unlikely to vote tonight on school sales tax
06/25/2019 2:56pm

As the Jacksonville City Council prepares to hold its last meeting before some members rotate off and newly elected members join, education and religious leaders and public officials are pushing for the council to vote now on putting a referendum on a half-cent sales tax to fund school facilities before voters this NovemberThe Duval County School Board chairwoman was joined on the steps of City Hall on Monday by dozens of others, asking the council to vote Tuesday night to proceed with a referendum this year, but Council President Aaron Bowman said he does not intend to pull the resolution out of committees.Mayor Lenny Curry, already on the record saying the community should not rush to a vote on a new tax, issued a new statement Tuesday afternoon: As a father of public school children I know the needs that our community schools face. I want every child in every neighborhood to learn in a school that is safe and reflects the commitment to future success.The opportunity for us to work together - the Mayors office, the City Council, the School Board, teachers and parents - is available in the weeks ahead. Together we owe it to Jacksonvilles taxpayers and families to lay out a plan that is financially prudent and well thought out. To date such a detailed plan has not been presented to me or to this community. The problem is real and easy to see, but for a solution to be effective, we must come together and ensure a plan that makes all our public schools better.I stand ready to work with this city to make that happen. Duval County Public Schools Facilities Master Plan, detailing $1.1 billion in specific needs for schools throughout the county, is posted on its website. A half-cent sales tax would raise an estimated $1.4 billion over 15 years.We are thrilled with the support we have gotten from the community, Duval County School Board Chairwoman Lori Hershey said Monday. It seems like a basic American right, doesnt it The right to vote. Dont we as citizens of Duval County have the right to weigh in and make a decision on whether or not we will support children, support public education and move this city forward UNCUT: Community leaders rally for half-cent sales taxA UNF poll released Friday found that nearly three out of four registered voters in Duval County support the measure to upgrade the conditions of several schools in the county. But according to the poll, most voters want to wait until next year to vote.We state we love our children but now the house is on fire and we want to wait until 2020 to call the fire department to put it out, Rev. Aaron Flagg Jr., of Emmanuel Baptist Church, said at Mondays rally.Some at the rally questioned the citys general counsels opinion that requires the City Council to be the gatekeeper on the School Boards ability to ask voters to approve the tax.Every part of our community is represented here this morning to tell the City Council: Let the people vote. It seems very strange we have to ask what we have a right to do, state Sen. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville, said.A video from the school district released last week highlights the poor condition of some of its schools, showing broken air conditioners and leaky classrooms. The goal of the half-cent sales tax would be to pay for repairs to some of the districts aging schools and also build and consolidate other schools.The City Council finance committee last week voted to delay a public vote about it until 2020. A second committee voted to defer taking up the measure until next month when newly elected City Council members would be seated.Curry and other Jacksonville leaders have expressed concern about the cost of holding a special election -- estimated to be between $700,000 and $1.4 million -- even though the cost would be paid by the school district.We dont want this to be another JEA we dont want this to be another Hart Bridge and we definitely dont want this to be another Jacksonville Landing, where the deals are made in the backrooms and not in front of our people and not in front of the voters, said Rep Tracie Davis, D-Jacksonville. So we are talking about this election - this coming election -- and having the vote in 2019.Last week, Hershey commented on the costs of delaying the vote for one year.A shame, isnt it We are at a state in our city when we have schools and conditions that are really beyond our repair. We are currently spending over $500,000 a month. Deferring the vote on the referendum would mean that we would spend $6 million of taxpayer money to do repairs, Hershey said.

9 questions you've been too embarrassed to ask about CBD, answered
06/25/2019 2:40pm

The use of cannabidiol CBD is a relatively new thing to a lot of us and something thats still somewhat of a mystery, so its not surprising that people have a ton of questions about it.We wanted to find the answers to some things youve been curious about but perhaps too embarrassed to ask.Lets start with what might be the biggest question. 1. Will it get me high No. In no way does CBD negatively impact your mind or mental processes.Tetrahydrocannabinol THC is the ingredient of cannabis that is psychoactive and can cause sedation, lethargy, dysphoria and other negative effects that happen when someone is high.CBD is a different, naturally occurring compound that is completely nonpsychoactive, according to CBD Origin. Instead, it delivers healing properties of the plant without the negative effects or getting you high. 2. Are there side effects Even among people who used high doses of CBD, many small-scale studies have shown that adults tend to tolerate a wide range of doses well. However, the most common side effect, according to Medical News Today, is tiredness, as well as some reports of diarrhea and changes in appetite or weight. It can take anywhere from 20 minutes to two hours before the effects of CBD can be felt. 3. Will it show up on a drug test This isnt entirely straightforward. Most CBD users will not have trouble passing a drug test, U.S. Drug Test Centers says. Officials there noted, however, that for people who use extremely high levels of CBD or hemp oil more than 2,000 mg per day, it is possible, though unlikely, to produce a false positive result on a drug test.Having said that, because CBD has been found to interact with the bodys metabolism of certain compounds, for someone who is using CBD and marijuana, there may be higher levels of THC for a longer period than when using marijuana alone.The U.S. Drug Test Centers recommended that even though CBD shouldnt raise any red flags on a drug test, erring on the side of caution would mean refraining from using it altogether if youre anticipating a drug test. 4. How do I administer it CBD can be used in a number of ways, including: As a liquid As a pill Mixing it directly into food A vaporizer pen Topically, such as in salves or creams According to U.S. Drug Testing Centers, when applied topically, it cant produce psychoactive side effects, even if THC is present in the CBD. 5. What will it treat People use CBD to treat an array of symptoms, but some ailments proponents claim it helps with are: Acne Alzheimers disease Anxiety disorders Arthritis Epilepsy Cancer Inflammation Post-traumatic stress disorder Seizures Type 1 diabetes 6. Is it legal Yes. If the CBD does not also contain THC, it is not restricted the same way products that contain THC are.That leads us to our next question ... 7. Is CBD approved by the Food and Drug Administration The only CBD products that have been approved by the FDA are Epidiolex -- for treatment of seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome or Dravet syndrome in patients 2 years and older -- and Marinol and Syndros, which are used for therapeutic purposes including the treatment of anorexia and AIDS, according to the FDA.No other CBD drug products have gotten approval.FDA continues to be concerned at the proliferation of products asserting to contain CBD that are marketed for therapeutic or medical uses although they have not been approved by FDA, the administrations website says. Unlike drugs approved by FDA, products that have not been subject to FDA review as part of the drug approval process have not been evaluated as to whether they work, what the proper dosage may be if they do work, how they could interact with other drugs, or whether they have dangerous side effects or other safety concerns.Interested in what else the FDA has to say about CBD Read more here. 8. Where can I buy CBD CBD that doesnt contain THC is available at health stores, food markets, boutiques -- there is an array of places you can find it with a quick Google search, but online is really where anything goes. 9. What age do I have to be to purchase it As mentioned above, without THC, CBD is available at countless places in person and online. A person who has access is allowed to purchase.However, Green Entrepreneurs listed a couple of best practices suggested by industry experts when doing so: Purchase from providers that have independent, third-party testing Inquire about whether the CBD is made full-spectrum or isolate. Full-spectrum contains more compounds and nutrients When it comes to items that have not gotten FDA approval, it can be difficult to know if a product has a safe and/or effective level of CBD, as those products that are unapproved might not show the properties or contents on the packaging.If youre considering using CBD, consult with a licensed medical professional who can help you assess if the decision to use CBD is best for you.Have any other embarrassing questions or suggestions about CBD Email us and we will dig into it for you MORE READING: Young girls around world suffering from breast ironing abuse Take note: This teen with autism wrote the perfect guide on how to treat people Friends are more genetically similar than you might imagine, study shows
