On the Road to Persistence: Moses Lake identifies a new location for the Open Doors Sleep Center Thu, 13 Jan 2022 09:11:41 +0000

Moses Lake City manager Allison Williams provided an update on the city’s plans to address the needs of people affected by homelessness in the city during Tuesday’s Grant County Board of Commissioners meeting.

“As a city, one of our big projects is the conversion of the Open Doors Sleep Center from its temporary location to a permanent location. We’ve identified a property and because of our work in this area, particularly the (Grant County) End Homelessness Plan that feeds into the City’s Housing Action Plan, we have a tremendous need for affordable housing,” Williams said.

Williams said the land for what will be referred to as the Moses Lake Transformational Campus is about 5 acres. The city is working to solicit proposals from consultants who would conduct a market analysis and develop a development plan for the property. In general, she said, the facility would be mixed-use, with temporary sleeping accommodation and semi-permanent housing options to help those facing a housing crisis to improve their overall living conditions. According to documents provided by Williams, the land is on North Central Drive, just northwest of Goodwill, across from Smulligan’s Pizza & BBQ. The site is close to three bus stops and within walking distance of the proposed location of a new sign to be erected near the intersection of Grape Drive Northeast and Beacon Road Northeast.

“Our current sleep center is spread over 1 hectare. It needs to be moved to a permanent location and updated. So that’s the first need, and then we look at market analysis to define what other needs are out there,” Williams said.

Preliminary plans for the new site would include an improved 20-unit emergency shelter that would provide those in need with immediate access to shelter, case management and stabilization services. An emergency shelter and warming center would provide opportunities for homeless people to attend to hygiene needs. In addition, a 50-unit affordable housing project with units for homeless households is proposed, taking into account green standards adopted by Washington State. Services such as rent, energy and food aid would also be coordinated at the Moses Lake Transformational Campus.

The projected cost of building the campus is estimated at $20 million, which city documents say would be halved in two phases. The funds would come from a variety of sources, including tax credit funding, equity investors and the city’s budget.

Williams said the city is also considering federal assistance, such as funding from the American Rescue Plan Act, to help build and operate the center. Total costs aren’t fixed because additional planning is required, Williams said.

Williams said she asked the county to contribute to the cost of the market analysis because each facility created by Moses Lake, the county’s largest city, would be used by clients throughout Grant County.

“(We) just want to be part of the whole county-wide process. And as the largest city, I think we can offer a place where people will come to get services anyway,” Williams said.

Borough Commissioner Danny Stone said he understands the borough is facing a housing shortage for low-income residents. He said he wants a phased approach to low-income condominium development that motivates tenants to work towards the next step of housing. He added he knew it would be a difficult situation as housing had become very expensive throughout the North West.

“The step between where some of these people are and where our housing costs are right now is a big leap. I don’t know what the lowest rent is, but my son in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, pays $2,800 a month,” Stone said.

According to, a website that tracks trends in the housing market, median rents in Grant County are higher than average. A one-bedroom apartment has a median rent of $704; a two-bedroom, $870; a three-bedroom $1,245; and a four-bedroom $1,375. However, rental listings on show a lack of availability at or below these prices for all apartment sizes. In many cases, Zillow’s listings are nearly double the median rental rates quoted by Rentdata.

According to documents provided by Williams, as of 2020, approximately 2,100 households in Moses Lake alone would qualify for low-income or income-dependent housing under the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s guidelines. Hispanic households are about 5% more likely to qualify under These guidelines, using data from the US Census Bureau, show that about 50% of Hispanic households in Moses Lake make less than $45,000 annually — as opposed to 40% state level and 44% national level.

Stone asked Williams what role the Housing Authority of Grant County and other similar organizations needed to play in solving the housing problems of Grant County residents.

Williams said those other resources, including the El Rancho Motel and the support provided through HAGC, are essentially stretched.

To address this issue, Williams said the city plans to put together a housing task force that would engage stakeholders in the process of helping people deal with housing issues.

No formal action was taken at the meeting. However, the commissioners expressed their appreciation for the city’s efforts to address homelessness.

“It’s good to get this update from you,” Stone told Williams. “Let’s keep communicating.”

ZoomInfo employees will raise more than $ 2 million for local nonprofits during the 2021 winter fundraiser Tue, 11 Jan 2022 14:00:00 +0000

Donations to support 11 non-profit youth and family organizations in the company’s local communities

VANCOUVER, Washington, January 11, 2022– (BUSINESS WIRE) – ZoomInfo (NASDAQ: ZI), a global leader in advanced go-to-market software, data and intelligence, announced today that ZoomInfo employees teamed up for the final winter fundraiser in 2021 to raise more than $ 2 million for nonprofits focused on youth and families in the local communities where she serves.

Over $ 1 million of these funds was raised to support the Family & Community Resource Centers at Evergreen Public Schools near ZoomInfo headquarters in Vancouver, Washington.

“On behalf of our school community, Evergreen Public Schools cannot thank ZoomInfo and its staff deeply enough for their continued support and generosity,” said Karen Fox, director, federal programs at Evergreen Public Schools. “These funds will allow us to power additional resource centers that will provide daily support to students in addition to providing emergency shelter and utilities, basic needs and medical assistance to students and families. To say that the support of the ZoomInfo team from Evergreen Public School Families is helpful is an understatement; their efforts enable families to bridge the gap between their current resources and their current needs. We are extremely grateful for the commitment of the ZoomInfo team to invest in the hearts and minds of our community. “

Employees based in Waltham, Massachusetts donated more than $ 130,000 to Cradles to Crayons.

“ZoomInfo’s generous donation will have a tremendous impact on families struggling in Massachusetts,” said Aubrey Conquergood, executive director of Cradles to Crayons Boston. “We cannot fully express our appreciation for their contribution and continued support, especially as families continue to feel the pressure of the pandemic. This support will enable us to help important items such as clothing, winter coats, diapers, hygiene kits, school supplies and more children in need while relieving their parents and carers. “

Given the ongoing challenges in 2021, employees broke another ZoomInfo company record for funds raised through the annual month-long event. They more than tripled the $ 650,000 they raised in 2020 to bring the total to over $ 3.26 million in cash and in-kind donations for six years.

“Our teams recognize that it is not enough to just do good, but that it is a responsibility of those who do well to also do good,” said ZoomInfo CEO and founder Henry Schuck, who along with his wife Jessica matched the employees’ donations.

This total includes a donation of more than $ 100,000 from ZoomInfo co-founder Kirk Brown and his wife Ashley.

The employees once again let their creativity run free to raise money for their purposes by auctioning various experiences and self-made objects.

During the 2021 winter fundraiser, ZoomInfo employees raised funds for 11 US-based organizations in their communities, as well as for several international nonprofits:

  • Vancouver, Washington – As a non-profit organization dedicated to helping Evergreen Public Schools and the community and schools as a whole, the Resource centers for family and community works with the southwest Washington community to close the basic needs gap, promote innovative and engaging learning experiences, and maximize opportunities to ensure that all students have access to their most basic needs.

    • divide supports low-income adults, children and families through a range of social services. Among its many offerings in Vancouver, Washington, the organization offers free nutritious meals, emergency shelter, rental grants, permanent and subsidized housing, and related savings programs.

“I’m really mad”: friend of Utah woman who was killed in a helicopter crash in Tennessee, speaks up Sat, 08 Jan 2022 02:21:05 +0000

Julianne “Juli” Wagner, 36, of Utah, was killed in a helicopter crash in Tennessee on December 29th. Police say the pilot was a man who was banned from flying in Utah under conditions of a provisional release. (Family photo)

Estimated reading time: 3-4 minutes

SALT LAKE CITY – Friends of a Utah woman who was killed in a helicopter crash in Tennessee last month speak out because they say the Utah pilot shouldn’t have flown at all.

And the Utah prosecutors agree.

Julianne “Juli” Wagner, 36, of Lindon, was killed when the helicopter crashed from the Great Smoky Mountains in an area south of Cosby, Tennessee, on December 29th. She was the passenger of a Robinson R-44 helicopter owned by Matthew. The driver was Jones, 35, who went down about eight minutes after take-off from Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge Airport in “overcast, drizzly and foggy” conditions WBIR in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Jones was hospitalized with undisclosed injuries in the crash, according to the Tennessee point of sale. The station also reported that a report from the Cocke County Sheriff‘s Office found that Wagner was the helicopter’s pilot.

U.S. Attorney’s Office officials in Utah said Jones shouldn’t have flown – and shouldn’t have left the state.

Federal court records show that Jones, of Spanish Fork, was charged on October 13 with fraud and non-certified aviator activity.

The indictment states that Jones “posed as the owner and operator of Noctem Aviation and a certified flight instructor in helicopters and fixed wing aircraft.” He presented the added fees to a customer in 2019 as a certified flight instructor in text messages and social media.

Prosecutors also allege that he also took money from a shared bank account with the client and used the money for personal expenses.

While the case remains in the US District Court of Utah, Jones has been released on several conditions, including not being allowed to fly airplanes or leave the state without permission. Records show that a violations hearing was scheduled for December 22, a week before the crash, after prosecutors accused Jones of using marijuana on December 5, which would also violate the terms of his release.

Gina Blake, a friend of Wagner, told KSL-TV on Thursday that Wagner recently started dating Jones and days before the crash, Wagner said the two wanted to open a helicopter tour business.

Blake said she did not know about Jones’ federal case until details emerged after the fatal crash.

“I’m really angry,” she said. “I feel like he’s a con who crept into Juli’s life.”

Wagner, who would have turned 37 on Sunday, leaves behind a 7-year-old son. She was remembered by friends and family as “a bright, strange, funny, compassionate, independent, and free-thinking person” in an obituary posted online.

The obituary added that Wagner enjoyed hiking and camping and that “compassion was their religion”.

“She has primarily spent her time and resources fighting for a better world, a world that is safer for women, LGBTQ + and racial minorities,” the obituary said. “Animal rights, reproductive rights and environmental protection were also important to her.”

Blake added that Wagner “had a really big, beautiful heart and loved people”. A service to commemorate their lives is scheduled for next week in Provo.

As for Jones, US prosecutors told KSL-TV on Thursday that it will depend on his state of health when he will be returned to Utah and prosecuted in the federal case. He stayed in a Tennessee hospital that week.

A public defense attorney assigned to Jones filed a motion to reschedule a jury trial on Friday. The document states that its trial should start later this month; However, the motion stipulates a period of at least 90 days for Jones “to be ready to go to court”. The document does not mention the crash.

Boys’ football: Red Raiders open new season in Forney tournament | Sports Thu, 06 Jan 2022 01:00:00 +0000

Most teams use activities outside of the district to prepare them for their district race.

But it is difficult for the Tyler Legacy Red Raiders to prepare for the gauntlet of the District 10-6A soccer race, head coach Marty Germany said.

“Our district is so tough that you will lose every evening if you don’t show up,” said Germany. “We know that, and every coach and every player in our district knows that. We use the early part as a nice warm-up to get back in and build up some rhythms and sub-patterns. We’ll find out who our big players and other solid players are. It will be a nice tuning. But not much can prepare you for this level of competition. The district is stacked like this. “

The Red Raiders open the season on Thursday at the Forney tournament. Legacy will face West Mesquite at Forney’s Jackson Middle School at 1:45 p.m. The Red Raiders will then play three games at Forney City Bank Stadium – Friday 10:15 am against Corsicana, 5:15 pm Friday against Lakeview Centennial and on Saturday against an opponent to be determined.

Legacy went 16-4-2 last season, losing 2-1 to Mansfield Lake Ridge at Forney City Bank Stadium.

“We are ready,” said Germany. “The boys are all excited. We have played against a few other teams but they know it was scrimmages and that playing time is changing now that it’s real. We made sure everyone played in every game and got decent minutes to rate everyone. With football lessons all year round and playing against each other every day, by the end of October you get tired of playing against each other so they’re ready to face new people. “

Legacy had scrimmages against Lufkin, Pine Tree, Tyler High, and Kilgore – all of them win.

Back for the Red Raiders is Junior Noe Robles, who scored 26 goals last season and set a program record with 25 goals in the regular season.

“He is becoming more and more of a leader,” said Germany. “At the same time, everyone we play will touch it and try to turn it off. He’s good at sneaking away, finding spaces, and being in the right place at the right time. He has a great knowledge of football and can read the game. “

Two players who played key roles as newbies last season – Brady Filla and Knox Hicks – are both returning for the Red Raiders. Filla was a selection for all districts and a second team selection for all regions.

Other players who are back include Christian Baxter, Austin Beckham, Landon Bravo, Nathan Eidam, Jorge Sanchez, Cash Spalding, and Esteban Rodriguez.

Hansen Anderson and Fabian Verona take on the goalkeeping duties. Anderson is currently out due to injury, but the Red Raiders expect him to return at some point during the season.

Denver Rowe and Luis Bustos both join the Red Raiders after previously playing for Whitehouse.

Anthony Tierrablanca is a sophomore student who Germany said played all-field in the scrimmages.

“It does a good job wherever we use it,” said Germany. “He’s the guy you need who just does his job.”

Germany said he was optimistic about this season as long as the Red Raiders play their style of football.

“We’re really just looking for consistency,” he said. “When we throw the ball around and play our football, we look good. When we slow down, our passing game fails, we struggle to develop chances and build every kind of attack. We have to be consistent with how we play when we have the ball and when we don’t, and just keep building our game. “

Legacy is ranked No. 8 in Class 6A Region 2 by the Texas Association of Soccer Coaches Organization.

The Red Raiders will be at home for the first time on January 25th against the Dallas Skyline for the district opener.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul has signed an executive order that allows local governments to remove a personal extension requirement for property tax exemptions for low-income seniors and people with disabilities.

The governor says that with the winter rise in COVID cases, the health of these thousands of people in vulnerable populations can be protected while allowing local governments to override the personal requirement while continuing to provide tax breaks for those who need it most send.

The ordinance also allows the Senate and Assembly of State to meet remotely until January 15, and allows public entities to meet remotely. The content of the meetings has yet to be made publicly available.

Finally, the Executive Order allows certified clinical laboratories to use facilities outside of the state to conduct COVID-19 tests on New York residents to cope with the huge surge in testing demand.
