Construction near I-30 to last another week

This pattern is likely to switch next week, said Michael Rey, media relations manager for North Texas Toll Authority.Construction on the Chisholm Trail Parkway slowed during Christmas and the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, which was held in the nearby cultural district.Construction will slow again during spring break for the heavy traffic going to the Fort Worth Zoo, said Bryan Beck, regional transportation manager with the city manager’s office.The 28-mile parkway is a joint project between Fort Worth and NTTA, Beck said. The speed limit through the city will stay 50 mph to help keep road noise down through the neighborhoods along the CTP. TxDOT and Fort Worth will conduct a speed study next year, he said.The city hopes the toll road will help traffic congestion on Bryant Irvin Road and Hulen Street, Beck said.But the construction prompted the closure of access to I-30 from Forest Park Boulevard. Beck said the city will monitor University Drive and Summit Avenue to see how much traffic each absorbs because of the Forest Park Boulevard closure.He said signal lights, timing and new turn lanes will help traffic congestion in the short term.“The best plan for University Drive is to wait until the CTP is completed to evaluate traffic flow,” said Beck.

Thirty-eight states have some sort of statewide camp regulations while California does not.Roxie drowned at Summerkids camp in Altadena on June 28. She was a non-swimmer.According to a lawsuit filed by Roxie’s parents, Doug Forbes and Elena Matyas, Roxie entered the camp pool June 28 at about 9:25 a.m., accompanied by a counselor.About ten to fifteen minutes later, another counselor who was working with other campers about thirty to forty-five feet outside the gate of the swimming pool was the first person to finally notice Roxie floating face down in the pool, the suit says.State documents show the California Dept. of Social Services substantiated two allegations that Summerkids has operated without a required license which the state says “poses an immediate health, safety or personal rights risk to children in care.”Roxie’s parents began researching camp safety issues and discovered that more than 1 million children attend thousands of largely unregulated California camps.Portantino agreed that under California law there exists a deficiency in camp licensing, inspection, and oversight.The Forbes family established the Meow Meow Foundation to educate the public about this gap in oversight.They are collaborating with Senator Portantino on SB 955 so that horrific, preventable outcomes are eliminated and camp experiences are safer for the children who attend them.“Meow Meow Foundation is honored to work with Senator Anthony Portantino on The Roxie Rules Act, a comprehensive recreational camp licensing, oversight, and safety bill that finally affords millions of California children the protections they deserve,” said Doug Forbes.The bill will be first heard in a Senate policy committee in March.The bill must pass both houses of the legislature by the end of August. If signed into law by Governor Newsom it would go into effect on January 1.The Forbes were in Sacramento on Monday for the bill’s introduction to support this important legislation. Assemblymember Brian Maienschein (D-San Diego) is a principal co-author on the bill. Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) is expected to sign off on the bill.“As a father myself, I cannot begin to comprehend what has happened to the Forbes family,” Portantino said in a prepared statement. “Losing a child is the single worst thing that can happen to a parent. It hurts even more because we know that this was a preventable tragedy. I am very grateful that Roxie’s family is channeling their tremendous grief to make sure that tragedies such as this do not happen again. I want to commend them for all the work they have done to raise awareness and knowledge of the gaps in state law regarding recreational camps.” Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Radhakrishnan v. Maestro Engineers  which had held otherwise. The court was answering a reference from a two judge bench which had doubted the dictum laid down in Himangni Enterprises v. Kamaljeet Singh Ahluwalia (2017) 10 SCC 706 that landlord-tenant disputes governed by the provisions of the Transfer of Property Act, 1882, are not arbitrable as this would be contrary to public policy. To answer the reference, the bench discussed the meaning of non-arbitrability and when the subject matter of the dispute is not capable of being resolved through arbitration.The court noted that in N. Radhakrishnan, the two judge bench had upheld the order rejecting the application under Section 8 of the Arbitration Act on the ground that it would be in furtherance of justice that the allegations as to fraud and manipulation of finances in the partnership firm are tried in the court of law which is more competent and has means to decide a complicated matter. It was held therein that the dispute would be non-arbitrable on public policy consideration if it relates to serious allegations of fraud.Disagreeing with this ruling, the bench observed that non-arbitrability question cannot be answered by examining whether the statute has a public policy objective which invariably every statue would have. It said:”There is a general presumption in favour of arbitrability, which is not excluded simply because the dispute is permeated by applicability of mandatory law. Violation of public policy by the arbitrator could well result in setting aside the award on the ground of failure to follow the fundamental policy of law in India, but not on the ground that the subject matter of the dispute was non-arbitrable.”The court further observed that, to accept the reasoning in N. Radhakrishnan, one would have to agree that arbitration is a flawed and compromised dispute resolution mechanism that can be forgone when public interest or public policy demands the dispute should be tried and decided in the court of law. The bench further observed:Arbitrators, like the courts, are equally bound to resolve and decide disputes in accordance with the public policy of the law. Possibility of failure to abide by public policy consideration in a legislation, which otherwise does not expressly or by necessary implication exclude arbitration, cannot form the basis to overwrite and nullify the arbitration agreement. This would be contrary to and defeat the legislative intent reflected in the public policy objective behind the Arbitration Act. Arbitration has considerable advantages as it gives freedom to the parties to choose an arbitrator of their choice, and it is informal, flexible and quick. Simplicity, informality and expedition are hallmarks of arbitration. Arbitrators are required to be impartial and independent, adhere to natural justice, and follow a fair and just procedure. Arbitrators are normally experts in the subject and perform their tasks by referring to facts, evidence, and relevant case law. Complexity is not sufficient to ward off arbitration. In terms of the mandate of Section 89 of the Civil Procedure Code and the object and purpose behind the Arbitration Act and the mandatory language of Sections 8 and 11, the mutually agreed arbitration clauses must be enforced. The language of Sections 8 and 11 of the Arbitration Act are peremptory in nature. Arbitration Act has been enacted to promote arbitration as a transparent, fair, and just alternative to court adjudication. Public policy is to encourage and strengthen arbitration to resolve and settle economic, commercial and civil disputes. Amendments from time to time have addressed the issues and corrected the inadequacies and flaws in the arbitration procedure. It is for the stakeholders, including the arbitrators, to assure that the arbitration is as impartial, just, and fair as court adjudication. It is also the duty of the courts at the post-award stage to selectively yet effectively exercise the limited jurisdiction, within the four corners of Section 34(2)(b)(ii) read with Explanation 1 and 2 and check any conflict with the fundamental policy of the applicable law. The court further noticed that in a recent judgment in Avitel Post Studioz Limited, it was held that Section 17 of the Contract Act would apply if the contract itself is obtained by fraud or cheating. Thereby, a distinction is made between a contract obtained by fraud, and post-contract fraud and cheating. The latter would fall outside Section 17 of the Contract Act and, therefore, the remedy for damages would be available and not the remedy for treating the contract itself as void.”, it said.The bench then laid down a a fourfold test for determining when the subject matter of a dispute in an arbitration agreement is not arbitrable: (1) when cause of action and subject matter of the dispute relates to actions in rem, that do not pertain to subordinate rights in personam that arise from rights in rem. (2) when cause of action and subject matter of the dispute affects third party rights; have erga omnes effect; require centralized adjudication, and mutual adjudication would not be appropriate and enforceable; (3) when cause of action and subject matter of the dispute relates to inalienable sovereign and public interest functions of the State and hence mutual adjudication would be unenforceable; and (4) when the subject-matter of the dispute is expressly or by necessary implication non-arbitrable as per mandatory statute(s). These tests are not watertight compartments; they dovetail and overlap, albeit when applied holistically and pragmatically will 60 help and assist in determining and ascertaining with great degree of certainty when as per law in India, a dispute or subject matter is non-arbitrable. Only when the answer is affirmative that the subject matter of the dispute would be non-arbitrableApplying this test, the bench observed that insolvency or intracompany disputes, grant and issue of patents and registration of trademarks, Criminal cases, Matrimonial disputes, Matters relating to probate, testamentary matter, disputes which are to be adjudicated by the DRT under the DRT Act etc. are not arbitrable. On N. Radhakrishnan, the bench held thus:”We overrule the ratio in N. Radhakrishnan inter alia observing that allegations of fraud can be made a subject matter of arbitration when they relate to a civil dispute. This is subject to the caveat that fraud, which would vitiate and invalidate the arbitration clause, is an aspect relating to non-arbitrability.”Also Read :Landlord-Tenant Disputes Under Transfer Of Property Act Arbitrable Except When Covered By Rent Control Laws : Supreme CourtDisputes Which Are To Be Adjudicated By DRTs Are Not Arbitrable: Supreme Court Overrules 2012 Delhi HC JudgmentExpression ‘Existence Of Arbitration Agreement’ In Section 11 Of Arbitration Act Includes Aspect Of Validity Of Agreement : Supreme CourtCASE: VIDYA DROLIA vs. DURGA TRADING CORPORATION [ CIVIL APPEAL NO. 2402 OF 2019 ]CORAM: Justices NV Ramana, Sanjiv Khanna and Krishna MurariClick here to read/download the judgmentRead Judgment Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Sachin Shankar Magadum, while dismissing the petition as unconditionally withdrawn, saddled the petitioner with a cost of Rs 1 lakh. The cost has to be paid to the Karnataka State Legal Aid Services Authority, within one month. The amount is to be used for the benefit of children who are forced to sell toys and other items at signals and streets in Bengaluru. The petitioner had alleged that the roaster judge will not give justice to the petitioner in the petition (WP no 15239), (which is pending before Justice Krishna S Dixit), on the footing that there is excessive interference of a former Chief Justice of India, who was specifically named in the petition (the court masked the name of the Retired Chief Justice of India, in the order). It was also alleged that most of the judges who hail from Karnataka Bar, one way or the other show their allegiance to the said former Chief Justice of India. In the ground for interim relief, it was alleged that all judges of this court who were practicing in courts in Karnataka can be influenced by former CJI and therefore Chief Justice of this court, should either take up matter himself or assign the matter (Wp no 15239/2020) to a judge who has not practiced in courts in Karnataka. During the hearing the bench observed that “In some other high courts this practice has started of filing such petitions, we want Karnataka High Court to be free of this.” In its order the court said: “On the face of it such allegation scandalizes the high court of Karnataka and lowers the authority of this court. Moreover, such allegations constitute interference in due course of judicial proceedings. Such allegations tend to interfere with administration of justice.” To the allegation made by the petitioner that all HC judges, who were practising lawyers in the state of Karnataka, will be influenced by a former CJI, the bench said :”We must remind the petitioner that honorable judges, are hold constitutional posts, are human beings and they are bound to have respect for those who are really honourable and possess very high intellect. However, Judges have taken oath under the Constitution, merely because they respect somebody does not mean that the judge is guided by the said person, when they discharge their duties as a judge. While making such allegations the petitioner has tried to cast aspersion on retired CJI. Petitioner himself has talked about the intellect of Retired CJI. This kind of serious attempt to scandalize this court has to be condemned in strongest possible words.”After completing the order, Chief Justice Oka, whose parent court is the Bombay High Court, said :”You are saying that because the Chief Justice is an outsider he should take up your matter. But I have said repeatedly that I consider myself a part of Karnataka, so where will you go. If the Chief Justice also says that he belongs to Karnataka, where will you go? Where will you find a judge? If you say a judge from Karnataka should not hear your matter, all of us belong to Karnataka.”Court stopped short of issuing criminal contempt proceedings against the petitioner. On Monday when the petition was listed before the court instead of straight away initiating suo-motu contempt proceedings, the court invited attention of the advocate KUMARA K G appearing for the petitioner to the scandalous allegations made in the petition. On Tuesday, the advocate submitted a memo for retirement, in which he informed the petitioner that he would not continue in the matter. The court invited the attention of the counsel to provision of civil procedure code and pointed out to him that it is the discretion of the court to permit an advocate to retire or not. According to the bench, “We will not allow the said advocate to retire by exercising discretion vested in this court.” Following which the court opined as observed earlier ex-facie the statements made by petitioner constitute criminal contempt under all three clauses of sub section c of section 2, of 1971 Act. The question is whether we should initiate suo-motu Criminal contempt against the petitioner. The bench said “When we applied our mind of initiating proceedings more than one factors persuaded us not to initiate the proceedings. The first and foremost reason is that we are guided by what is observed by Apex court in the case of S Mulgaonkar, 1978 3 SCC.” It added that “We believe that if at all magnanimity has to be shown it has to be by persons who are holding constitutional post.” It clarified that “When we say that we are not inclined to initiate suo-motu criminal contempt proceeding, our silence should not be understood as our weakness by not only the petitioner but by any other person.” The court also said “Apart from the fact that the petitioner has filed a memo withdrawing the petition. The main reason which persuades us from not initiating action is law laid down by the Apex court.” Following which the court said “The petitioner should not be under impression as far as this court is concerned the matter is over. We have noted the statement made before the single judge. We expect the petitioner to immediately go before the single judge and withdraw the said submissions. If the said submission is not withdrawn the option of initiating, suo-motu proceeding always remains open.” Accordingly the court though disposed of the matter kept it for hearing on February 19 for reporting compliance as regards payment of cost.Next Storylast_img read more

We were all touched by what we saw and by the remembrance of what others had sacrificed.”Even days after returning from the Honor Flight, Harold Watkins couldn’t hold back the tears as he remembered the sea of white crosses at Arlington National Cemetery.“Each one of those crosses means that someone’s loved one didn’t come home,” Watkins said, as he brushed a tear from his eye. “And, there are crosses in other countries, too. Crosses that we’ll never see but are there marking boys buried far from home.”Watkins was only 18 years old when he was called by Uncle Sam in April 1945.

I was one of the more fortunate ones.”Watkins completed basic training the day Japan surrendered. He served on a Navy transport ship in the Pacific.“We made trips as fast as we could go bringing soldiers home,” he said. “They were happy men to be going home. When I was in Washington, I couldn’t help but think about all of those who never got to come home. More than 400,000 who never got to come home.”Watkins said he knows how blessed he is to have come home. He also is fortunate to have been able to stand before the memorial that was erected in honor of the band of veterans of which he is proud to be a member.“I’m proud I had the opportunity to serve,” he said. “And, I am proud that I got to see the World War II Memorial. But it’s really for those who didn’t come home. They are the ones we need to honor.”And, it was just by happenstance that Watkins was able to make the trip with the Wiregrass Honor Flight on April 17.“I read in the paper about the flight and my wife called and there had been a cancellation so I got to go,” Watkins said. “It was something to behold. Something I’ll never forget.”But it is that sea of crosses that stands out most in his mind.“Those are the ones that deserve to be remembered,” he said.Joe Gilchrist of Troy wasn’t in the ticket of the battles of World War II and his thoughts were of those who were in the thick of battle and never came home as he stood at Arlington National Cemetery.Gilchrist, a veteran of the WWII’s Army Air Corps, said he was like so many others on the Wiregrass Honor Flight that day who were in awe of the memorial that was erected in their honor – those men and women of “The Greatest Generation.”But it was those crosses at Arlington that moved them to tears.“Those men buried there gave their all,” Gilchrist said. “No one can do more than that. They never had a chance to see the World War II Memorial. We are the lucky ones.“The World War II Memorial is impressive, and I was so fortunate to get to see it along with other veterans and my grandson, Richard, who was my guardian on the trip.”Gilchrist said the memorial that was dedicated in 2004 came too late for many WWII veterans.“Our generation of veterans is dying at the rate of about 1,200 a day,” he said. “Many of them died before they could see the memorial and others aren’t able to make the trip. But these Honor Flights have made it possible for thousands of veterans to go to Washington and see the tribute to their service.”Gilchrist entered the Army Air Corps in 1942 when he was 22 years old. He served in North Africa and was mustered out in 1946. He was in aircraft radio maintenance and spared many of the horrors of the war.Gilchrist said when he hears stories about the Battle of the Bulge, where nearly 20,000 Americans were killed; he can’t even imagine what it must have been like.“So many of the stories of World War II will never be told because those who lived them just can’t talk about them,” Gilchrist said. “Maybe we need to hear those stories … or maybe we don’t.”Perhaps some of the WWII veterans who stood at the Alabama pillar on April 17 could have told stories of those battles. But the day was one of intense camaraderie – of being with those who were part of a war like no other.The Wiregrass Honor Flight veterans returned home to a heroes welcome. A large enthusiastic crowd awaited the veterans and greeted them with cheers and thunderous applause. Families greeted their loved ones with tears of joy.“This was a great opportunity and we all appreciate those who made it possible,” Gilchrist said. “For many of us, these Honor Flights are the only opportunity we’ll have to visit the World War II Memorial and to visit it with other veterans.”Emmitt Boutwell described the Honors Flight one of the greatest experiences of his life.“I’d never seen the World War II Memorial; I’d never been to Washington and I’d never flown on a commercial airliner,” Boutwell said.He couldn’t get over the way the Wiregrass Honors Flight was organized to take care of the veterans.“There was somebody at every turn making sure that we were all right,” he said. “When we went through customs, we had to take our shoes off. I sat down to put mine back on and a lady came over to do it for me. I told her I could put my shoes on but she said that was what she was there for. I was king for a day.”Boutwell said all the sites in the Capital City were impressive to him from the slum section to the huge government buildings to the war memorials and those to the country’s great leaders.“I enjoyed all of that,” he said. “It was really something to see.”Arlington Cemetery put a lump in the throat of most veterans and Boutwell was no exception.“The Changing of the Guard wasn’t exactly what I expected,” he said. “There was just one guard and he walked about 75 feet, stood about 30 seconds and walked back. It was impressive though.”Because the flight was about an hour late getting off the ground, the veterans missed seeing Sen. Bob Dole but did get to view the laying of the wreath at the Alabama pillar of the WWII Memorial.Boutwell served with the Army in Europe and was a part of the Blitz of London. He was discharged on Nov. 22, 1945, and had not been with a group of men from WWII since then.“What impressed me so much was the attitude of the men,” he said. “There were a lot us with ailments and about 30 in wheelchairs but nobody complained. We were just all so proud to have the opportunity to go to Washington and see the memorial and to be together.”Boutwell said many of the veterans were drafted into service.“That’s the way most of us got into the service,” he said. “Nobody asked for war. It was forced on us. It was forced on me but when I came back home, nobody owed me anything. I owed my country and I knew without a doubt that the United States was the greatest country in the world. I had been to other countries and I knew we had the number one nation. I was proud to serve and we all appreciate the memorial but especially for those who didn’t get to come home. The real heroes.”Alan Gunter had been working for more than a year to get his dad, Bill, on a Wiregrass Honor Flight. But it didn’t look like he was going to make it.On Thursday before the Saturday, April 17 flight, Bill Gunter was in the hospital where he had been for more than a week with pneumonia and there was little sign of improvement.Alan’s wife, Deborah, was staying at the hospital keeping Gunter encouraged and praying. But the doctors said Gunter’s chances of making the Honor Flight were not good.At 6 a.m. on Friday, Deborah Gunter was back at the hospital and she noticed a huge difference in her father-in-law.“When Dad woke, Deborah said he was alert, talkative and hungry,” Alan Gunter said. “He ate all his breakfast and seemed to be a new man. At noon, the doctors noticed the vast difference in Dad’s countenance and Deborah began working to convince the doctors that he might be strong enough to make the trip. It worked.”At 4 a.m. on Saturday, April 17, Alan and Bill Gunter were on their way from Troy to Dothan. And the trip for both of them was nothing short of amazing.“When we arrived at the Baltimore airport, the plane was boarded by a Rear Admiral who personally thanked the veterans for their service,” Gunter said. “As we exited the plane, there was a long line of young sailors who greeted each veteran and thanked them for their service. When we got into the terminal a line of civilians was there to thank them also. As we boarded the buses, sailors were standing at attention and saluting the veterans.“We gathered at the ‘Alabama’ pillar for a ceremony to all the servicemen of Alabama. The monument is truly a magnificent example of artistic expression and symbolism. There is one pillar for each state and territory of the United States. Huge bronze eagles and a large fountain represent victory in the air and at sea.“But there is an interesting emphasis on the fact that the states were united in this war. Everyone at home and abroad was working to rid the world of a true axis of evil. Many stopped to thank the veterans for their service.”When the Wiregrass Honor Flight returned to Dothan, the Army band was playing John Phillip Sousa marches. Soldiers were standing at attention and many dignitaries were on hand to provide an encouraging word.“We still cannot believe that it really happened for us,” Gunter said.“It was nothing short of a miracle.” “You could look at the faces of the veterans and their guardians and know that their hearts were touched,” he said. “But, you know, when we came home from World War II, we went straight to work. There were no parades for us and we didn’t expect any.“Many of the World War II veterans had been away from home from three to five years. We were anxious to go on living. We never thought about a monument or anything to honor our service. That just wasn’t anything that was important to us at the time.”But standing at the Alabama pillar of the World War II Memorial, Jackson said he realized it is important that the service of the hundreds of thousands of World War II veterans be recognized and honored. Sponsored Content Published 8:46 pm Friday, April 23, 2010 Skip By The Penny Hoarder Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson William L. “Billy” Jackson (Col. Ret.) struggled to find words to define the experience provided to him and about 90 other World War II veterans through the Wiregrass Honors Flight. The Honors Flight to Washington D.C. on April 17 to view the World War II Memorial was one of four Wiregrass Honors Flights offered to veterans at no cost.“I just don’t know the words to express my feelings,” Jackson said. “It was a most humbling experience. As I looked around there at the memorial, most of the veterans seemed to be remembering those who will never stand where we stood. My feeling was that we were representing those who weren’t there – those who never came home from the war, those who died before the World War II Memorial was erected and those who will not have the opportunity to travel to Washington. Only a small number of us will stand there in honor.”Jackson said hearts were touched by the memorial and hearts were heavy in its shadows.

Florida boater rescued 86 miles off coast: ‘I thought, this is it’

Posted On May 18 2021 by

first_imgMotor vessel Angeles via U.S. Coast GuardBY: JULIA JACOBO, ABC NEWS(MIAMI) — The man who was rescued 86 miles off the coast of Florida after his boat capsized didn’t think he would make it back to shore alive, the satellite call made after he was found revealed.The search for 62-year-old Florida resident Stuart Bee began once his family alerted the U.S. Coast Guard that he failed to dock at the Port Canaveral Marina after departing Friday evening, saying he only planned to be out for a few hours, according to Coast Guard officials.The news of Bee’s rescue Sunday morning spread after the captain of the Angeles, the 225-foot-container ship that spotted him in the Atlantic Ocean, called the Coast Guard to tell them Bee was alive and well.“We just rescued one person from a capsizing boat at sea,” the captain of the Angeles told Coast Guard Lt. Shawn Antonelli in a satellite call, which was released by the Coast Guard on Tuesday.“That is the gentleman we’ve been looking for,” Antonelli said after the captain gave him the man’s name. “Thank you.”The captain replied, “I am very happy for this.”Once Bee got on the line, he told Antonelli that he fell asleep after he’d been working on his engine, which was making squealing noises. He woke up Sunday between midnight and daybreak to water gushing into the back of his boat, Bee said.“I didn’t see anybody,” he said. “I thought, ‘This is it.’”When Bee saw the Angeles in the distance, he initially could not tell whether it was coming for him. He took off his shirt and waved it periodically, and the cargo ship took about a half-hour to get to him, he said.Bee said he tried to swim into the middle of his boat three times to grab his personal locator beacon and was about to go down for a fourth time when he saw the Angeles.U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Veronica Dunn-Depretis described Bee’s rescue to ABC News as “amazing,” adding that he is lucky to be alive.It is unclear why Bee’s 32-foot pleasure boat named Sting Ray capsized, Dunn-Depretis said. Bee was not injured in the ordeal, she added.ABC News’ Bill Hutchinson and Ben Stein contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
