first_imgFlorida is joining 29 other states that are part of an electronic network which is intended to maintain the integrity of voter rolls.According to elections officials, the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) could potentially help local election officials verify existing registration records and detect duplicate registrations to avoid issues at the polls.In making the announcement Wednesday, Governor Ron DeSantis said that he expects our state to join the program before the 2020 election.He also estimated that between 4 million to 5 million Floridians are not registered to vote. However, DeSantis emphasized that our state would be conducting outreach to register new voters only because it is an ERIC requirement, adding, “People spend big money trying to get voters registered. If it was just as easy to send them a postcard in the mail and fill it out, well, that would make it much easier. And typically you’ve [actually] got to do more outreach than that.”Florida, which currently has more than 13.4 million registered voters, would be the largest member of ERIC.The state’s entry to the program follows the release earlier this year of the Mueller Report, which alleged that Russians hacked electronic voter registration records in two Florida counties ahead of the 2016 election.last_img read more

first_img Here at England Golf we’re telling the stories of our wonderful volunteers, starting with Liz Haughton, the junior organiser at Greetham Valley Golf Club, Lincolnshire.If you volunteer in golf we’d love to hear your story and what you have achieved. It will help us to develop our Volunteer Action Plan which will help shape the support we provide to volunteers, clubs and our partners.You can get in touch by contacting Matt Bloor, England Golf Volunteer Manager, at [email protected] But now, read on to find out about Liz Haughton (pictured):Liz got into golf because her husband played and quite quickly became a county player, then took a break to have a family before returning to the game when her children also began to play. Liz took on the role of Junior Organiser about three years ago because she felt there was an opportunity to improve the junior section at the club. This is her first volunteer role in golf.Creating a relaxed family atmosphere around the junior section has really worked at Greetham Valley GC. Parents are involved as much as possible, even playing in the roll-ups and this year the club held an Adult and Junior Pairs Open, which was a great success with around 50 entries.The members are great with juniors and there are no restrictions on playing in competitions at the club. However there are also junior roll-ups every week during the summer and varied social events throughout the year which have included trips to the British Masters and pre-season away days.Liz said: “Our Junior Section is growing year by year and by combining competitive golf and fun, social activities, we seem to have found the perfect balance!”Facebook plays a pivotal role in organising junior activity and has proved a great way for the juniors to connect with each other. There is a closed group for members and Liz has recently set up an open group, which is already attracting a good following.Matt Bloor, England Golf Volunteer Manager, commented: “The junior section has developed some really good young golfers and is also having team success in the County League. But, perhaps more importantly, the section has grown considerably under Liz’s tenure and is fantastic at retaining juniors because of the atmosphere and overall experience.”Liz gets great satisfaction from the role and the interaction with juniors: “Seeing the amazing progress that the juniors are making with their golf and their increased social confidence is incredibly rewarding. I am very proud of them all!”The Greetham Valley experience shows that creating a sociable environment and enjoyable experiences on and off the course are key components to developing a healthy junior section.

first_img“The developers plan to create a place for locals, workers and community members to enjoy,” said Sarah Giberson, FMERA senior marketing development officer. “We’re looking to attract a new wave of tech innovators, creative thinkers and engaged citizens to Fort Monmouth. Access to culture, specialty food and drink and quality outdoor space are all a part of the equation.” In Other FMERA News At the March 20 monthly meeting of the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA), voting members approved a plan amendment that will allow The Loft Brewery, still under renovation, to add 5,900 additional square feet, increasing its capital investment in the redevelopment project from $1.5 million to $4.6 million. “It’s going to be pretty nice,” Robert Lucky, FMERA chairman told the board, adding he had seen an “impressive” video that should be released to the public soon. “Anyone looking to have a party, wedding, bar mitzvah or business meeting in a rustic industrial space would have to travel to the Foundry in Brooklyn or the Cork Factory in (Lancaster) Pennsylvania, a two hour ride,” he said. “Now they will have a space in Monmouth County. We believe if we build it they will come!” Purchase of the 16,420-square-foot building on 4.2 acres by Regional Development Group, LLC (RDG) began in 2016 and closed in April 2018. RDG paid $120,000 “as is” for the 1940s-era Dance Hall, heavily damaged in Super Storm Sandy. Following approvals by FMERA and Oceanport officials, work got underway to save much of the historic structure’s ambiance while modernizing it into a microbrewery, restaurant and entertainment complex. The interior features an open floor plan with an exposed wood truss ceiling. OCEANPORT – The new multi-use microbrewery coming to Fort Monmouth’s former Dance Hall has cleared the first hurdle to expanding its original size and space plan. Management is required to create 48 permanent, full-time jobs within 18 months of occupancy or pay a penalty. Brooks said bookings for events during 2020 will commence soon. • Monmouth County Freeholder Lillian Burry, the county’s FMERA representative, has been nominated by FMERA members to receive the national 2019 John Lynch Base Redevelopment award. The award, bestowed by the Association of Defense Communities, recognizes individuals, “who have been essential in ensuring that a community or local redevelopment authority has helped address specific economic needs following base realignment or closure.” • A Request for Offers to Purchase has been reissued for the fort’s Expo Theater, an 18,833-square-foot entertainment facility on 7 acres with a 995-seat auditorium built in 1968 along the Avenue of Memories (Route 537). Originally intended primarily for theater use, the new purchase parameters now “provide greater flexibility in the property’s redevelopment.” Retail, restaurant and/or office uses would now be permitted in addition to entertainment. The initial RFOTP drew two responses. One was noncompliant and the other was withdrawn. center_img • Following the recent FMERA-sponsored fort bus tour for Oceanport residents, officials said additional tours will be announced soon for residents of Eatontown and Tinton Falls. A new LLC, The Loft Partnership, was created by RDG specifically for this project. Brooks said increasing the size and scope of the project addresses an area need. By Laura D.C. Kolnoski Last year, Fuller “Trip” Brooks, co-founder of RDG,told The Two River Times,“Most of the roof disappearedand needs to be rebuilt.” The expanded plan includes a new front entrance and lobby and larger kitchen and offices. An additional courtyard will be added, along with all-season outdoor space. Approval of the changes by Oceanport officials is the next step. While a microbrewery was not originally envisioned in redevelopment plans for the parcel, officials now point to it as an example of their willingness to consider viable, alternative, “outside-the-box” proposals. • Forty-four pages of public commentsregarding KKF University EnterprisesLLC’s Phase One plans to redevelopSquier Hall into a location of New JerseyCity University (NJCU) are under reviewby FMERA staff. Officials said they willrespond to all comments and address thematter at their next meeting April 17. A design concept shows the mezzanine overlooking the dining area.Courtesy Regional Development Group • Burry is credited with securing several fort parcels for county use, including a recreation complex, new satellite Veteran’s Services Office, and the former Motor Pool, now a second strategic location for Monmouth County Public Works and its emergency equipment. She has also been involved in historic and open space preservation at the fort. Award recipients will be announced before the official June ceremony in Washington, DC.last_img read more
