Christmas presents for prisoners’ children

first_img You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here InspirationBy Chuck GibsonIt is said that most great events come from a good idea.  This was the case recently in Apopka where a church, a local ministry, a prison and a whole bunch of children participated in an event later to be known as the JAYA Tree Project.Returning from a visit to the Orlando Work Release Center (OWRC), a place that houses inmates awaiting release from the Florida prison system, Pastor John Hampton phoned Randy Green, mission’s pastor at Journey Christian Church with an idea to show love and the Christmas spirit to the families of the incarcerated women.The idea?  Place a tree in the foyer of the church with tags shaped like ornaments of the names and wanted gifts of every child of the nearly 60 mothers living at OWRC.Pastor Randy contacted Al and Sue Hoover, the founders and directors of Just as You Are Ministries (JAYA) and shared the idea with them.  After getting permission from the work release center to proceed with the project, they began the work of gathering names, ages, gender and desired gifts from the mothers and Kasye Conley, Thelma Wilkerson led a group of volunteers at Journey Church and Al and Sue Hoover along with the volunteers of Just as You Are Ministries began the hard work of making the project happen.  In the end, there were 117 tags to hang on the tree representing 117 children.On the weekend that the project was announced to the church, the response was nothing less than astounding.  Every tag was taken and according to Al Hoover, many people were left wanting to participate but were left without a tag.  Some of these folks purchased gifts anyway and donated them to the project.The following weekend every single tag was returned with not one but at least two purchased gifts per child and on December 16th, the packages began shipping to the children.  “In all my years of ministry, I’ve never seen 100% results from something like this” said Randy Green when asked about the results.  “Not only did every child receive multiple gifts but Journey people donated the wrapping paper to wrap them in”.  When asked why the church took on this project Pastor Randy answered “We want to help bring dignity to these ladies who are mothers before anything else.  Yes, they are in prison but they still have the heart of a mommy and part of the transition into society should most definitely include rebuilding the relationship with their children”.  When asked about the children he replied “watching the joy on the faces of these “silent victim’s” made every bit of work and effort worth it”.  When asked if this was going to be an annual event, he replied “I most definitely want to see this become an annual event, but we’ll have to see”.On Saturday night and Sunday morning, the church was treated to a 4 minute and 16 second tear fest in the form of a thank you video given by Al, Sue, Just as You Are and the mothers of the OWRC.  If adding dignity, a sense of pride and a complete social shift in the minds of these women was the goal of Journey and JAYA Ministries then, mission accomplished.  “I didn’t know that people like this actually existed”,  “you made my child’s Christmas just so wonderful” and “I haven’t seen my kids in two years and to get to see their faces was more than I could ever imagine” were just a few of the emotional responses voiced from the mothers after Christmas morning.When asked why these mothers don’t buy the presents themselves, Al responded “there are several reasons that these ladies can’t buy gifts for their children.  One reason is that not all of the ladies have obtained employment and most of those who have are only getting minimum wage, part time hours and the percentage that they actually get to keep for themselves is less than 35% of their net income.  Out of this 35%, they must buy bus passes to get to work, clothes for work and personal hygiene items that they need.  Even if they had enough money to purchase gifts, most of the items would be considered contraband in the center and thus would not be allowed inside the facility.  Being able to do this for their children would be something beyond their wildest dreams.”The JAYA Tree project, in the words of so many people was a much needed breath of fresh air in a time that is largely known as a hustle and bustle time of fast paced shopping, spending, parties and festivities.  Seeing the tears and laughter from these mommies who get to help put a joyful smile on their children’s faces would definitely classify this good idea as a great event. Use this link to learn more about Just as You Are Ministries.Chuck Gipson is a full-time missionary with Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru), part time volunteer with JAYA, and a correspondent with The Apopka Voice.

Solidarity with oilfields workers in Trinidad and Tobago

first_imgOilfield workers.The following statement was posted Jan. 3 on wftucentral.org.The World Federation of Trade Unions, representing 92 million workers in 126 countries all over the world, expresses its class solidarity with the workers of Trinidad and Tobago State Petroleum Company, Petrotrin, who have decided to go on a strike, defending their right to a wage increase.As the OWTU [Oilfields Workers’ Trade Union] representatives have pointed out, for the past six years, Petrotrin had offered zero-zero-zero, denying workers of any wage adjustments. Therefore, after 19 hours of negotiations, the employers’ side didn’t show any spirit of compromise. The Petrotrin workers risk life and limb, working in varying dangerous conditions, to guarantee a reliable supply of fuel to the travelling public; the Trinidad and Tobago people know better than anyone that the country’s economy is based on products made possible by the tireless efforts of these workers. That’s why we call upon the workers and the simple people of the country to stand by the Petrotrin workers, ignoring the employers’ appeals to not struggle.We once more reiterate our support to the Petrotrin workers and to any form of struggle they decide to follow, underlining that all the wealth belongs to those who produce it.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Purdue: Indiana Farmland Values Are Up

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Purdue: Indiana Farmland Values Are Up SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Aug 19, 2018 SHARE The June 2018 Purdue Land Value Survey published in the Purdue Agricultural Economics Report (PAER), by the Department of Agricultural Economics, was released earlier this month. The report lays out changes in farmland values and cash rents. This survey examines trends in farmland values, cash rents and also details market factors impacting these prices. Craig Dobbins, professor of agricultural economics and the survey’s author, said both farmland values and cash rents experienced a small increase statewide this year.“It’s often difficult to find information about current farmland values or historic farmland values and cash rents,” Dobbins said. “The purpose of our survey is to help people have some idea of what’s happening in the farmland market by providing an up to date reference.”According to the survey, top quality, average quality and poor quality farmland increased in value from last year by 1.6 percent, 2.1 percent, and 2.4 percent, respectively. In Indiana, top quality farmland has an average value of $8,668 per acre, average quality farmland rings in at $7,072, while poor-quality farmland averages $5,407. Like farmland values, changes in cash rent were consistently positive. On the whole, cash rents for the state increased 2.4 percent to 3.2 percent. Top quality farmland runs $261 an acre with average and poor quality farmland priced at $210 and $168, respectively.The report identified the amount of farmland on the market and rate of inflation as the two market factors positively influencing the cost of farmland. Nine factors, including crop and livestock prices, interest rates and agricultural policy, had negative influences. Since 2014, an increasing number of these 11 market factors have turned negative.It’s becoming more difficult to predict how certain agricultural economic factors are going to impact land values, Dobbins observed, especially with recent changes to trade and tariff policy in the U.S.“Production agriculture is always risky, but it has gotten really risky given the current events taking place. Production agriculture is highly dependent on export markets. To get a change in policy to one that is erecting barriers rather than reducing barriers is really a shift,” Dobbins said. Such a volatile trade environment makes it difficult to formulate predictions, however, Dobbins added, the uncertainties in trade policy seem likely to delay the hoped for increase in corn and soybean prices. Flat or declining farmland values seem more likely than continued increases going forward.To read the full PAER for 2018, visit https://bit.ly/2Op9vGt.Source: Purdue Ag Communications Purdue: Indiana Farmland Values Are Up Previous articleCommentary: Why is the State Fair Such a Big Deal in Indiana?Next articleJudge Overturns WOTUS Delay; Now Law In 26 States Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Doctrine Of Proportionality – An Explainer

Proportionately measures distributive justice in Aristotle’s schema. Aristotle’s concept, in short, can be said to be of ‘recta ratio’, that is, Right reason or the right relationship between the state and the citizen, adjudicated by the rule of law.Doctrine of proportionality finds its place in the Administrative law and is used at the stage of judicial review. The doctrine assets that there must be a reasonable nexus between the desired result and the measures taken to reach that goal. The action taken must not be shockingly disproportionate to the consciousness of the court and the said action can then be challenged by way of judicial review. It can be better understood with the help of an illustration. Let’s say, if in a workplace some workers remain absent from their duty then the punishment for it must be proportional, that is, the employer may treat it as leave without pay and may warn them or may even levy a fine but to dismiss them from service permanently would be disproportional.Sir John Laws has described ‘proportionality’ as a principle where the court is concerned with the way in which the decision maker has ordered his priority.  Lord Diplock in R vs. Goldstein<[i] in a bit to explain 'proportionality' said, "This would indeed be using a sledge-hammer to crack a nut" 'Proportionality' involves a "Balancing test" which keeps a check on the excessive or arbitrary punishments or encroachment upon the rights and "Necessity test" which takes into account other less restrictive alternates. The principle of proportionality evaluates two aspects of a decision: (1) Whether the relative merits of differing objectives or interests were appropriately weighed or "fairly balanced"? (2) Whether the measure in question was in the circumstances excessively restrictive or inflicted an unnecessary burden on affected persons? The court in such a case will not be concerned with the correctness of the decision rather the method to reach such decision.[ii] The decision making process involves attributing relative importance to various aspects in the case and there the doctrine of proportionality enters. The doctrine can be better understood with the help of a few case laws. 1. Ranjit Thakur V. Union of India[iii] – An Army Officer disobeyed the lawful command of his superior officer by not eating food offered to him. Court martial proceedings were initiated and a sentence of one year rigorous punishment was imposed. He was also dismissed from service, with added disqualification that he would be unfit for future employments. It was held that Judicial review generally speaking, is not directed against a decision, but is directed against the "decision making process". The question of the choice and quantum of punishment is within the jurisdiction and discretion of the Court-Martial. But the sentence has to suit the offence and the offender. It should not be vindictive or unduly harsh. It shouldn't be so disproportionate to the offence as to shock the conscience and amount in itself to conclusive evidence of bias. The doctrine of proportionality, as part of the concept of judicial review, would ensure that even on an aspect which is, otherwise, within the exclusive province of the Court-Martial, if the decision of the Court even as to sentence is an outrageous defiance of logic, then the sentence would not be immune from correction. Irrationality and perversity are recognized grounds of judicial review. All powers have legal limits. 2. Coimbatore Distt. Central Co-operative Bank Vs. Employees Association[iv]– Certain Employees went on illegal strike. They also prevented others from discharging their duty. It was held that the acts amounted to "Serious misconduct." Punishment imposed on the employees of stoppage of increment could not be said to be disproportionate to the charges levelled and proved against employees. 3. K. S. Puttaswamy v. Union of India[v] Test of proportionality was upheld by the Hon'ble Supreme Court. It was held that in the case of proportionality of a measure must be determined while looking at the restrictions being imposed by the State on the fundamental rights of citizens. It is not just the legal and physical restrictions that must be looked at, but also the fear that these sorts of restrictions engender in the minds of the populace, while looking at the proportionality of measures. 4. Most recently, in Anuradha Bhasin vs. Union of India [vi] wherein the validity of internet shutdown and movement restrictions in J&K was challenged in the Hon'ble Supreme court. It was held - To summarize the requirements of the doctrine of proportionality which must be followed by the authorities before passing any order intending on restricting fundamental rights of individuals. In the first stage itself, the possible goal of such a measure intended at imposing restrictions must be determined. It ought to be noted that such goal must be legitimate. However, before settling on the aforesaid measure, the authorities must assess the existence of any alternative mechanism in furtherance of the aforesaid goal. The appropriateness of such a measure depends on its implication upon the fundamental rights and the necessity of such measure. It is undeniable from the aforesaid holding that only the least restrictive measure can be resorted to by the State, taking into consideration the facts and circumstances. Lastly, since the order has serious implications on the fundamental rights of affected parties, the same should be supported by sufficient material and should be amenable to judicial review. With the rapid growth of administrative law and need to control possible abuse of its discretionary power by administrative authorities certain principles have been evolved by the courts. One of these principles is the proportionality principle. To summarize the essence of the principle, a quotation by Aristotle is ad rem "We do not allow a man to rule, but rational principle, because a man behaves thus in his own interests and becomes a tyrant."
