What is Happening to Gas Prices?

Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Previous articleBest Practices for a Perfect Mother’s DayNext articleApopka Police Department donating $1,500 to Crimeline Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR It is not your imagination.  Gas prices have jumped this week.According to GasBuddy:Gasoline prices are rising, once again, driven by rising crude oil prices and rising U.S. demand. And yet, the U.S. average price of gas today, $2.14/gal., is down 38 cents from last year’s average of $2.52 on this date. Today’s average is just 10 cents more than the average Americans saw on this date in 2009.“ Leading the demand surge has been gasoline, where the Energy Information Administration (EIA) shows year-to-date demand to be up 3.4% from last year and up 7.4% from 2014 according to their ‘product supplied’ demand indicator,” said Will Speer, a Houston-based senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.“Consequently, we see the benchmark West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude opening the week at $43+, $8 higher than where we were just three weeks ago,” Speer added. “But, remarkably, the most commonly seen price across the country today is $1.99. And that’s exactly what it was a week ago, a month ago, and even 6 months ago… $1.99.”Across the country 37.6% of stations are still priced below $2. A year ago on this date 100% of fuel retailers were above it. The highest 5% of stations in the U.S. today are averaging $2.90 while the lowest 5% of stations are averaging $1.78. The $1.12 difference between the two reflects compression compared to last year when the disparity between the highest 5% and lowest 5% on this date was $1.29.With the relatively slow pace at which prices are rising this spring there are still many states averaging below $2. Call them the ‘Lucky 13’: OK, TX, LA, MS, AR, SC, AL, MO, NM, TN, KS, VA, NJ.At the opposite side of the spectrum, California leads the nation with an average price of $2.77 but that price is 20 cents more than the second-highest average (Hawaii) and 50 cents more than the seventh-highest average (Alaska).Use this link to find the Current Apopka Gas Prices.

At a time when the sector is facing urgent funding shortfalls, legacies have played a key role in helping to sustain front line services, and they will surely be a critical part of so many charities’ recovery plans.“Although it’s not been easy for fundraisers to open up conversations about gifts in Wills during the pandemic, Remember A Charity Week is a great springboard enabling everyone across the charity to get those conversations started. With the charity and legal sector reporting high levels of demand for Will-writing, this could be a unique opportunity to help normalise this vital income stream.”  488 total views,  2 views today  489 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Child sex abuse survivors have more time to seek justice with Child Victims Act

first_img Before the Child Victims Law passed, New York’s statutes of limitations were among the shortest in the country. Several states do not impose any statute of limitations on felony sex abuse charges, including Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming, according to RAINN, an organization that works to end sexual violence.Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton shares information about the Child Victims Act in Ithaca. (Devon Magliozzi/Ithaca Voice)For victims of past offenses who did not file civil lawsuits in time prior to the passage of the Child Victims Act, a one-year window will open on Aug. 16, 2019, allowing cases to be brought forward. During the window, anyone who experienced child sex abuse can file a lawsuit regardless of their age and the date of the offense.Bridie Farrell, who co-founded the advocacy organization NY Loves Kids after experiencing sexual abuse at the age of 15, said the one-year window, along with the longer statutes of limitations going forward, restores agency to survivors and provides a chance to hold perpetrators accountable.“I think there’s going to be a lot of survivors who do come forward, and that is ultimately going to force institutions that have harbored abuse to change their patterns,” Farrell said.Farrell emphasized that the law does not require victims to come forward, but gives them control over how they want to respond as adults to their childhood experience of victimization.“The value of the law is that for the first time it gives survivors of child sex abuse agency over their situation, their case, their body. I encourage people to seek out mental health professionals, social services, legal counsel to decide what they want to do. This law does not mandate people to file suits; it gives them the option for the first time,” Farrell said.Jeff Dion, CEO of the Zero Abuse Project, is a child sex abuse survivor and advocate. (Devon Magliozzi/Ithaca Voice)Jeff Dion, CEO of the Zero Abuse Project, spoke Tuesday about the impact that bringing long hidden cases out of the shadows would have. “This is a crime that breeds in secrecy, and the only way we’re going to stop it is to get folks to talk about it.”He said New York’s short statute of limitations had made it difficult to hold institutions that cover up abuse accountable, letting abuse spread. “One perpetrator might have 100 victims, but one institution might have 100 perpetrators,” he said, emphasizing the potential reach of negligence lawsuits.Van Houten said the longer criminal statute of limitations will make it possible for his office to prosecute more child sex abuse cases and said two attorneys in the district attorney’s office have specialized training to do so. He encouraged those considering civil lawsuits to speak with several attorneys until they find one who has the experience and resources to successfully advocate on their behalf.In Tompkins County, The Advocacy Center works to connect survivors of child sex abuse with legal assistance as well as support groups, mental health providers and other resources. The Advocacy Center’s hotline can be reached 24 hours a day at 607-277-5000.Anyone who has experienced child sex abuse can get confidential support by calling the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800-656-HOPE(4673) or chatting online at hotline.rainn.org.Bridie Farrell, co-founder of NY Loves Kids, speaks about the Child Victims Act at the Tompkins County Public Library on June 25, 2019. (Devon Magliozzi/Ithaca Voice) TOMPKINS COUNTY, N.Y. — Survivors of child sex abuse have a new opportunity to seek justice in New York’s courts following the passage of the Child Victims Act. The legislation opens a one-year window to bring forth civil lawsuits related to old offenses and extends statutes of limitations for criminal prosecutions and civil claims going forward. Advocates are beginning a statewide tour called “Courageous Conversations, Critical Choices” to ensure survivors and service providers understand the new law, and they made their first stop in Ithaca.Representatives from the Zero Abuse Project and NY Loves Kids hosted a meeting with Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton, a co-sponsor of the bill, and District Attorney Matthew Van Houten at the Tompkins County Public Library on Tuesday.“We’re trying to get information out to people about what the law really means,” Lifton said.Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the Child Victims Act into law in February, after it had been held up for 13 years due to Republican opposition in past legislative sessions. Sen. Tom O’Mara voted in favor of the bill this year but previously opposed the legislation. The Catholic Church also spent $2.9 million lobbying against the bill in New York, according to a report commissioned by Seeger Weiss LLP, Williams Cedar LLC, Abraham Watkins and the Simpson Tuegel Law Firm, firms representing about 300 survivors of church sexual abuse.In a statement, Cuomo said the law would bring justice for survivors.“This bill brings justice to people who were abused, and rights the wrongs that went unacknowledged and unpunished for too long. By signing this bill, we are saying nobody is above the law, that the cloak of authority is not impenetrable, and that if you violate the law, we will find out and you will be punished and justice will be done,” Cuomo said.The legislation extends the period of time during which sexual offenses against children can be prosecuted. While there is no statute of limitations in New York for the most serious felony charges — first-degree rape, first-degree aggravated sexual abuse and first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child  — other charges could only be pursued until the victim turned 23 under past law. Under the new law, child sex offenses can be prosecuted until the victim turns 28. The extended statute of limitations applies to any offenses committed after Feb. 14, 2019, the date the Child Victims Act became law.In addition, survivors of childhood sexual assault can now bring civil lawsuits until the age of 55; the age limit was previously 23 for lawsuits filed against perpetrators and 21 for lawsuits filed against institutions accused of negligence. The new age limits apply to victims who were not yet 21 or 23 years old respectively, for suits against institutions and individuals, as of Feb. 14, 2019.

Man allegedly walks into police station, confesses to killing his girlfriend in 2014: Police

first_imgDanville Metropolitan Police Department(DANVILLE, Ind.) — A young man walked into an Indiana police department Sunday night and allegedly confessed to killing his girlfriend in 2014, according to local police.Connor Scott, 24, allegedly admitted to killing 20-year-old Kaylyn Whitaker, who died on Oct. 31 in Martinsville, Ill., according to the Danville, Ind., police department.Whitaker was shot in the head and found at Scott’s home, according to Indiana news site mywabashvalley.com.Her death was “originally called a suicide, but later ruled a homicide” after about 10 months, the Danville police said in a statement on Monday. “This is a homicide case, it has been since 2015. And nothing’s being done about it and I am angry,” Whitaker’s mother, Leslie Roberts, told mywabashvalley.com in Dec. 2018. “We deserve closure. We deserve peace.”The cold case heated up at about 8:30 p.m. Sunday, when Scott, who had been living in Danville, Indiana, for about six months, went to the local police department, authorities said.Police interviewed Scott and allegedly “obtained a taped confession regarding the murder,” according to Danville police.Details on the alleged confession have not been released.The Illinois State Police did not immediately return a request for comment from ABC News on Monday. The Clark County State’s Attorney’s office in Illinois declined to comment.Scott was taken to the Hendricks County Jail and is expected to be extradited to Illinois, police said.Illinois State Police investigators have traveled to Danville to meet with Scott, police said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
