The Alpena County Emergency Medicine Service department is requesting a new millage amount of 1.5 mil to replace the existing millage.The new millage would be in place for four years and the increase would maintain the first responder program, medical supplies and life support operations as well as technology upgrades.According to fire Chief Bill Forbush, first responders attend to about 5,000 calls per year in Alpena County and one ambulance costs about $200,000.Forbush says, “Its important that individuals show up and ask questions to ensure they make an inform decision in August.” The informational meeting is set for Wednesday June 17th beginning at 7pm at the Aplex.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Students will pay more for lunchNext Alpena Public Schools names interim superintendent
MASON CITY — Free tax filing of your 2019 return is now available from the Internal Revenue Service.IRS spokesperson Diane Fox says you can find the information on their website. “You can go to IRS.gov/freefile and get started on your taxes. Free File does all the hard work for you. Frankly, it makes taxes less taxing in a lot of ways,” Fox says. She says the program is based on your income.“Anyone who made $69,000 or less last year can use Free File,” she says. “We even have a special offer for active duty military personnel. And we offer one product in Spanish.” Fox says they have a variety of name brand Free File options.“It’s do it yourself software, but it leads people through, so that people don’t leave money on the table — that they get all the benefits that are available to them for their refund,” according to Fox. “And makes sure that it checks everything for them before they electronically file.”Fox says there is added benefit to going through the IRS site to get the Free File software. “You end up with the guardrails that we have in place for this program to make sure that you are getting the Free File program that has some protections for you,” she says. “In fact, we even have some of those protections listed on our website — so you can readily see what to expect when you are using the program.”Fox says around 22,000 people in Iowa used Free File last year. She says that is well below the number of people who are eligible to use the program.
0Shares0000A North American bid won against Morocco to earn the right to host the 2026 World Cup© AFP/File Patrik STOLLARZMOSCOW, Russia, June 13 – The United States, Mexico and Canada won the right to host the 2026 World Cup after easily beating Morocco in a vote by FIFA member nations on Wednesday.The North American bid received 134 of the 203 votes, while Morocco polled 65 in the ballot at a FIFA Congress held in Moscow on the eve of the 2018 World Cup. Football’s showpiece event will return to the North American continent for the first time since 1994 when the United States hosted the tournament.Delegates had been faced with a clear choice — the joint North American bid boasts modern, established stadiums and well-developed transport links underpinned by Mexican football fervour.Morocco, on the other hand, promised a “European” World Cup in Africa, playing on the north African nation’s proximity to Europe.But compared to North America, Morocco’s bid existed largely on paper — many stadiums and roads would have had to have been built and critics questioned how it would have coped with the 2026 tournament, which will be expanded to 48 teams.FIFA inspectors classified the north African nation’s stadiums, accommodation and transport as “high risk”, awarding it just 2.7 out of five in an evaluation report, with concerns raised over several critical aspects.They warned “the amount of new infrastructure required for the Morocco 2026 bid to become reality cannot be overstated”.The report made the US-Canada-Mexico bid the clear favourite after rating it four out of five, and Morocco was not able to bridge the gap.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
Errigal at sunrise two weeks ago – it will get another dusting later this weekDON’T mention the ‘S’ word – but we may have a touch of snow in the next two days.But any suggestion of a prolonged winter blast in Co Donegal in December is being dismissed.Irish Weather Online and Met Eireann says a storm is brewing for tonight and into Thursday over Donegal. Cold arctic air tonight will accompany the ridge of deep low pressure, bringing damaging 100km/hr winds and “wintry showers.”Thursday will be very windy and very cold“Thursday night will become very cold especially in Ulster and Leinster, inland Connacht, where lows could reach -3 to -5 C, and a few locations may see accumulations of snow, for example Glenshane Pass and some higher parts of Donegal and Mayo,” says IWO.Calm will return on Friday – but temperatures will slowly rise from Sunday onwards, and by the middle of next week much milder air will return with temperatures of up to 14C. “From Monday the trend is for relatively mild, cloudy and mostly dry weather for next week with light to moderate southerly breezes,” says Met Eireann.Irish Weather Online says there is “nothing to indicate” a return to colder weather “before the end of the month.”So the ‘white Christmas’ may not be on the cards after all!
