DFW ranks 4th most popular metro to metro migration destination by CommercialCafe, a nationwide commercial real estate listings platform apart of Yardi Systems.  Using U.S. Census bureau data, CommercialCafe was able to determine the top 10 most popular destinations for metro to metro migration which accounts for many of the population shifts.  Among the many reasons why people gravitate to DFW include natural resources, construction, low taxes and career opportunities.  The Employment sector in DFW is on fire with many Fortune 500 companies setting up shop and establishing new corporate headquarters including American Airlines, ExxonMobil, AT&T and Toyota just to name a few. With this data, a few key takeaways were determined: Dallas-Fort Worth ranked 4th, gaining a net average of 30,639 residents per year from other U.S. metro areas. Houston and Austin also appear on our list, at 3 and 5, respectively. DFW gained many residents from metro areas outside Texas, with a yearly 9,495 residents gained from Los Angeles alone. The number of jobs in healthcare grew by 5.6 yearly, and jobs in natural resources, construction and maintenance increased each year by 3.5 on average.

State Contracts Mount for Aurigo’s Capital Project Software

 Cache   
road construction

With its population and federal deficit both steadily growing, the United States is lagging on infrastructure maintenance. In its most recent “report card” assessment in 2017, the American Society of Civil Engineers gave U.S. infrastructure an overall grade of D+. The assessment found that in order to improve this grade and maintain global competitiveness, Congress and the states would have to invest $206 billion a year more than they currently do, and failure to do so could cost the U.S. GDP up to $3.9 trillion by 2025.

One of the largest software providers for capital program management, Aurigo, based in Austin, Texas, has been working behind the scenes to help governments chip away at this problem by guiding them through major projects from planning to completion and maintenance, making them more viable and less risky. And it has a lot of practice.

Founded in 2003, Aurigo launched at a time when mobile technologies like personal digital assistants and palm devices were starting to allow for the digitization of paper inspections. The company has since transitioned through various mobile-first strategies to its current cloud SaaS model, expanding from a single on-premises product, for project inspections and management, to 17 offered subscriptions.

Talking to Government Technology last week, CEO Balaji Sreenivasan called Aurigo the “best-kept secret in capital program management software,” but the scale of its business tells a different story. The company has had a busy year, contracting with the city of Houston Public Works Department in October to manage $2.7 billion in planned capital projects in 2019. The company also picked up several contracts in recent months with state departments of transportation: Nevada in February, Iowa in April and Montana in May; along with local government contracts with San Bernardino County, Calif., in July and the city of Durham, N.C., in September.

“People wouldn’t use our software to build a mall or a store, but they would use our software to build an entire state highway network, or an airport, or urban infrastructure in cities or counties,” Sreenivasan said. “Anything that’s very, very large-dollar, capital-intensive assets that are publicly funded would be delivered using our software, and we manage the entire lifecycle of that.”

Sreenivasan said the company employs close to 360 people to serve about 160 agency customers, most of which are large state departments of transportation, cities, counties or water authorities. He said Aurigo’s software has been used to plan and deliver close to $300 billion worth of capital programs to date.

The sheer logistics and regulations involved with projects of that scale are key to the company’s value proposition. Sreenivasan pointed out that regulations for reporting how money is spent, and if projects meet certain standards with respect to civil rights and minorities, have gotten increasingly stringent in recent years. Handling this without software can be a “nightmare,” he said, and doing it wrong can cause massive delays.

Sreenivasan said the breadth of what their software does also distinguishes it from competitors. He likened project management tools from Smartsheet, Procore and Microsoft Project to “very intelligent spreadsheets,” for helping contractors of small orders to collaborate and manage their tasks. But he said they won’t help a government plan and fiscally constrain a five-year capital infrastructure budget and generate reports for the governor’s office, build forecasts of when entire capital programs will get delivered, handle project-level accounting, and track whether the funding meets civil rights goals.

This is usually not feasible, Aurigo said, because data sets across different phases of construction tend to live in different silos, from planning to design to project management and maintenance. But Aurigo’s platform puts them in one place.

“The whole world is driving toward an integrated data (delivery) model, where data can flow seamlessly from one phase to the other. What we have done at Aurigo is to try and address that for almost all of the phases,” he said. “For phases that we don’t, we have (integration) hooks ... into ESRI systems, ERP systems, et cetera, so the goal is to have all of your construction data from planning through inspection in one single spot, or an integrated platform.”

This ability to interface with other systems has helped make Aurigo’s software an integral part of infrastructure planning by the city of Lincoln, Neb. But it took time to get there.

Tim Pratt, IT manager for Lincoln Transportation and Utilities, said the city had been using SiteManager, a product of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, when it made the switch to Masterworks, Aurigo's flagship product, in 2006. The city was in the middle of its biggest public works project ever, the Antelope Valley project, and Pratt said the conversion required considerable work from Aurigo, but the result has been fruitful. More recently, he said Masterworks has been able to integrate with other software his department uses such as Accela’s permitting program, an asset management program, and OnBase, an enterprise content management system by Hyland Software.

“We use that software (Masterworks) basically to manage our construction contracts … When we go to pay on these contracts, the pay estimates are generated out of Masterworks. Simply put, let’s say it’s a paving project, and you find out you need to put a water main in. It’s not going to let you pay for it, because it’s not in the project, until you do a change order,” he said. “Masterworks gives us great control on spending. Our construction observers and project managers get frustrated from time to time, but we make sure they don’t overpay.”

Pratt estimated the city spends between $120 million and $200 million a year on projects, and they track all of it through Masterworks. He said the process is a far cry from what he saw in the department in 1999, when everything was done on spreadsheets, under a dozen project managers who all had their own way of doing things.

“It’s kind of the core of what we do,” he said.

For some government customers, the catch is that Masterworks can cost as much as millions of dollars per year in software subscription fees. Aurigo aimed to address this earlier this year with a new SaaS, Essentials, that pares Masterworks down to fundamental construction management tools and a subscription price starting at $15,000. Sreenivasan doesn’t anticipate business declining any time soon.

“Infrastructure is one of the biggest growth areas in this country at this stage, regardless of what the federal government does with it,” he said. “We’re going to be building America for a while. Using technology and the latest cloud software is imperative for this country to get built the right way.”

Editor's note: A quote from Sreenivasan regarding integrations has been trimmed to correct technical language.

The Global Franchise Market Concludes in Dubai Today

 Cache   
Nov 06, 2019
Picture: 

Dubai - United Arab Emirates, 6 November 2019 --( ASIA TODAY )-- The 4th edition of The Global Franchise Market – TGFM concluded today on a high-note attracting more than 1600 investors and franchisees coming from different parts of the world while also featuring the participation of 80 leading brands, representing a variety of business industries and sectors. The event succeeded in showcasing new franchise concepts and emerging key trends that are rapidly transforming the franchise landscape across many fields and sectors.

Throughout the 2 days, the exhibition floor witnessed a number of successful meetings and lucrative business partnerships and agreements. Golden Fork Seafood Restaurants, a 33-year old Dubai based seafood restaurants chain, signed a master franchise agreement with Uganda based Rawda Holdings Limited. The agreement was signed in the presence of Mohammed Shanavas, Managing Director, Golden Fork Seafood Restaurants LLC and Tarig Mohamed, Chairman of Rawda Holding Ltd, Uganda. Through this agreement, Golden Fork Seafood Restaurants will develop 25 outlets across 5 countries in Central Africa, where the first fine dining outlet is expected to open at Kampala city in Uganda by January, 2020. Golden Fork currently has 20 operating outlets and plans to expand to 20 countries by 2022 targeting 100 outlets.

Besides that, Ruky perfumes, the Dubai based perfume brand, signed a regional franchise development agreement, which involves a 30-outlet expansion across Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Kuwait. The agreement was signed in the presence of Dr. Shanith Mangalat, MD, Ruky Perfumes LLC and Mohammed Salem of Al Salem Group, Al Ain. Ruky Perfumes currently has 20 operating outlets and it aims to expand to 300 outlets across Arab Gulf region by 2025.

On another note, Rolf G. Kirst, Board Member, Franchise Pool International, commented on their participation saying, “On behalf of Franchise Pool International, it gives me great pleasure to attend TGFM, which has truly evolved into a major franchise event in the region. TGFM is a unique platform to meet with the ever-growing list of potential investors and leading franchise brands from the UAE, Middle East and the globe who prefer face-to-face interactions. Over the years, Dubai has grown immensely to become a lucrative competitive market in the franchise landscape and it retained its status as the top destination for franchising in the region. Moreover, Dubai is the best location for us franchise exhibitors, as it is home to those visitors who have the capital to start a real business and the imagination to succeed and expand their business.”

On her part, Romany Ward, Marketing Executive, Coffee Planet, Dubai said, “With a strong and established trading base across our foodservice, retail and C-store platforms in Dubai, it is indeed a great opportunity for us to be a part of a regionally focused franchise event such as TGFM here in Dubai, the homeland of our business and roastery. At TGFM, we met many serious F&B investors looking to partner with us, and we hope to continue growing the success story of our brand in the UAE and wider GCC countries.”

She added, “Dubai is the place where franchisors can make their dreams come alive and it offers both an inspirational and aspirational place to set up a shop. In today’s franchise market, only the very best operational brands setting up the highest retailing standards can survive the demands of the knowledgeable and culturally diverse breadth of customers in this region. We are constantly increasing our efforts to succeed and continue to drive more to share our coffee experience and expertise.”

Commenting on their participation, Umair Tariq, CFO, Kido Schools, said, “This is the first time we participate in TGFM, and it was indeed a great opportunity for us to meet and connect with many potential partners and investors who could help us in expanding the Kido Brand to the lucrative markets in the UAE and other parts of the GCC region. Since its inception in 2014, with its first school in Hong Kong, Kido School has today opened more than 24 schools spanning many cities such as Dubai, London and 4 cities in India. By 2020, we plan to open our first branch in Houston, Texas and another 10 schools across many countries worldwide.”

He added, “The UAE has historically led the wave of growth in the region’s education sector and still represents an attractive market opportunity. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are among the largest and the most popular markets for educational investors. While the franchise industry is rapidly evolving in many countries of the GCC and MENA regions, the UAE remains a preferred destination for franchisors and franchisees, given its easy accessibility, stability of its legal and regulatory systems and its openness to foreign investment.”

The Global Franchise Market (TGFM) is held under the patronage of Dubai Economy and is organized annually by INDEX Conferences and Exhibitions – a member of INDEX Holding. The event witnesses the support of Ministry of Economy – National Program for Small and Medium Enterprises and Projects and the strategic partnership of Franchise Souq and Francorp Middle East as Platinum Sponsor.

2-French Electrophysiology Catheter Introduced by Baylis Medical

 Cache   
A comparison between the EPstar 2F and 6F catheters from Baylis. Electrophysiology catheters. EP lab

A comparison between the EPstar 2F and 6F catheters from Baylis.

October 31, 2019 — Baylis Medical announced the first North American use of its EPstar Fixed Electrophysiology Catheters. The EPstar catheters make available the smallest diagnostic catheter in the North American electrophysiology market, allowing physicians to reach previously inaccessible areas of the heart for procedure mapping.

The EPstar catheter family includes a 2 French (F) catheter and a 6F guiding catheter which can be combined to allow deeper coronary sinus (CS) mapping. Deeper electrophysiological examination, including mapping, is often required to aid in the diagnosis of idiopathic ventricular tachycardias, complex atrial tachycardias, and left Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome. The 2F catheter also allows mapping and pacing in smaller anatomy such as the Vein of Marshall (VOM).

Miguel Valderrabano, M.D., director of cardiac electrophysiology at Houston Methodist Hospital, was the first North American physician to use the EPstar 2F catheter in a clinical procedure.

“Mapping of the coronary sinus is essential to determine an accurate diagnosis for several cardiac conditions. However, it becomes a challenge as you reach further into coronary sinus small branches, which cannot be reached with conventional catheters,” Valderrabano said. “The availability of a 2F catheter allows us to reach into those smaller areas of the CS and VOM, as well as the anterior interventricular vein at its small branches, to achieve an accurate diagnosis.”

The 2F catheter features a flexible, atraumatic tip, and low energy pacing from the distal electrode. It can be delivered through any venous access point, enabling physicians to tailor their procedure to patient anatomy.

The 6F guiding catheter features two electrode spacing options to tailor the devices to a given procedure and includes a fully braided shaft, providing physicians with greater torque control. The 6F catheter also includes a lumen to allow visualization of coronary sinus anatomy, and is inserted via superior vein access.

The EPstar catheters are launched in partnership with Japan Lifeline (JLL), a leading Japanese cardiovascular device developer and manufacturer. The EPstar catheters are widely used in the Japanese electrophysiology market.

The EPstar catheters are expected to launch in the United States in early 2020.

Not really. Pretty even and similar results vs the same foe. You out to look at their schedules and compare. While doing that, keep in mind that the Jags have been playing the entire time with a true rookie QB. GM has done well all things considering, but Foles should be a bit of an upgrade however you look at it. Also realize that the Jags had to give up a division home game to play Houston in the UK. Then add in that they have two weeks to prepare for us, and we have zero real film on Foles playing for the Jags...

SinglePoint (OTCQB: $SING): Direct Solar Signs MOU with SchollyME an International Sports Recruiting App Linked to High Schools Across the Nation



PHOENIX - November 4, 2019 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Direct Solar of America, a subsidiary of SinglePoint Inc. (OTCQB:SING) is pleased to announce it has signed a MOU with SchollyME. Direct Solar and SchollyME will collaborate on marketing Direct Solar through the schools that SchollyME is currently working with. The collaboration will put Direct Solar into the high school programs as a partner with SchollyME. This marketing strategy has already seen major success in driving new business for both companies.


SchollyME is based in California and is the fastest growing sports recruiting app for all 32 NCAA sports. SchollyME is a social media network, sports recruiting application for high school students to showcase their talents. The platform is the first social media network to be adopted in China. Learn more at SchollyME Sports Recruiting App Lands Billion Dollar Partnership in China From the release – "Kenneth Chang of the CECC and Ascent Sports is requiring all Esports gamers and athletes to pay an annual subscription fee to the use of SchollyME. The deal is estimated to be worth $1.4 billion within 24 months, thus making SchollyME the largest recruiting app in the country."

"We have seen major success in working with local high schools. We are currently working with 47 schools throughout Dallas, Houston, Fort Worth, Austin and are seeing amazing returns. We had our largest sales day to date Thursday closing seven deals for approximately $250,000. This partnership will give us access to high schools across the nation," states Pablo Diaz Founder, CEO Direct Solar.

This partnership will assist schools and their athletic programs through giving back a percentage of sales to help support and fund the local high school programs.

"We wanted to partner with the best solar company that can service all the schools we are currently involved with. SchollyME felt that we were more than just athletes. Our athletic community should care about the environment and give our younger generation a chance at a much longer life. Direct Solar and SchollyME is just a great partnership. We are both interested in the kid's futures!" states Mel Nunnery Founder of SchollyME.

Direct Solar and SchollyME are currently working to define which markets to launch and in what capacity to do so. Supporting the local communities and high schools' programs will be the driver for this successful partnership. Working with the school to establish a presence for education on solar and renewable energy and what it means for future generations of kids' is elemental in building longevity for both companies.

Direct Solar America via its Direct Solar Capital Division currently finances commercial solar projects for multiple private equity funds throughout North America. With the SchollyME and Direct Solar America partnership we will be collectively raising capital to continue funding projects throughout North America.

The solar market has been growing at its fastest pace in recent history. According to Solar Energy Industries Association, "The U.S. solar industry now has the largest pipeline of utility-scale solar projects in history, signaling promising future prospects for solar energy development." And with new legislation being presented the American Energy Opportunity Act which aims to make the process easier to obtain solar we expect to see continued growth in the sector.

Furthering the growth in the solar market, California has Incorporated solar into state codes & standards, including implementation of the Building Energy Efficiency Standards (BEES) for solar on new homes, developing BEES for commercial buildings with solar and storage, and preventing problematic siting & permitting requirements for utility-scale solar. The state continues to invest and grow the solar footprint. Which SchollyME being based in California this puts Direct Solar instantly in the largest solar market in the United States.

SchollyME has been working with thousands of students securing over 300 scholarships. The interactive app continues to develop and grow. SchollyME Inc. is an incredible sports social network which gives fans a front row seat in the lives of their favorite athletes and coaches while connecting with fans across the globe. For high school and jr. college athletes, SchollyME encourages you to market and promote yourself to college coaches across the globe. SchollyME empowers you to go from discovered to offered with one click.

Beyond just high schools there are numerous opportunities through partnering with SchollyME. Intros to international markets such as China where Pablo Diaz and Mel Nunnery recently traveled on an "invite only" trip to attend the Chinese Electronic Chamber of Commerce conference. Being one of the world's most prestigious conferences, there were many attendees that are highly interested in seeing the collaboration of Direct Solar and SchollyME succeed as there is much business to do outside of the U.S. and expanding into international markets.

Direct Solar and SchollyME determine the best-case scenario to develop and bring to market the first application to buy solar online or through a mobile device from inception to financing and closing. The future of residential solar will follow the path of other large purchases such as cars through Tesla and Carvana. Consumers are becoming comfortable making these large purchases online with the right education and trusted partner. Direct Solar of America will guide consumers through the entire process providing any assistance needed along the way through implementation of AI and customer service agents available to answer any questions. Overall the company looks to create and launch an industry changing way to purchase solar.

Reflections on the Work of Reuben Wu

photo-eye Gallery Reflections on the Work of Reuben Wu Jamey Stillings
Photographers view the work of other artists using photographic processes through a unique and illuminating lens. This week, using his keen visual literacy and skilled eye, photo-eye Gallery Artist Jamey Stillings reflects on the work of Reuben Wu, currently on view at photo-eye Gallery.
 by Jamey Stillings 

Reuben Wu, AE 1144, 15 x 20 inches, Archival pigment print, edition of 10, $950

If you have yet to spend time with the photographs of Reuben Wu, please do so soon.

Photographers are both blessed and cursed when we encounter the work of fellow artists. By one measure, our visual acuity is refined and deep, having assimilated a vast aesthetic and historical lexicon of photographs throughout our lives – imagery that contextualizes new work we experience. But by another measure, this visual literacy interferes with our ability to observe new work on its terms with focus, curiosity, and naiveté. Instead of simple observation, we can easily be distracted by the technical.

Fortunately, Reuben Wu’s work manifests a visual sensitivity and finesse, which fuses with a refined aesthetic sensibility and technical mastery of his tools. Thus, we are freed to quietly be in the presence of each photograph appreciating it on its terms.


Wu’s work AE 1144, from the series, Aeroglyphs, places us in a different space than many of his other images. Instead of geometric light forms interacting with pristine, seemingly untouched natural landscapes, we encounter a scene that bears the unmistakable marks of human activity. The eerily glowing turquoise waters of the irregular canal, or ditch, are at once seductive and troubling. If we were to enter these waters, would they provide comfort and relaxation, or toxicity? Details along the water’s edge reveal information that, in theory, should help us discern scale, but these forms dissolve into a blackness where our ability to know what is geological or human-formed is masked. The twilight sky, with its panoply of colors and quiet drama, is inviting. Are we looking only at desert clouds or also the dissipating contrails of evening flights? While contemporary in the print’s vibrancy and hues, the surreal tones of water and sky, out-of-balance with how they would be seen in situ, evoke the mystery of Magritte.


Installation view of AE1144 and XT1768 in Aeroglyphs & Other Nocturnes at photo-eye Gallery 


Upon this scene, perhaps fully pre-visualized by the artist, but never experienced as a single moment, Wu scribes three central vertical parallel lines with the light of his drone. As with all light painting, these lines never exist in space to be seen by the naked eye. Instead, the open sensor, which replaces the sheet of film, collects the sum of his temporal activity. Thus, the landscape becomes a set or stage in which a performance occurs, but the results of this ephemeral series of events become apparent only in the finished image. While traditional land art leaves permanent or semi-permanent marks in the landscape, Wu’s art cannot be experienced except in the photograph.

Reuben Wu’s photographic vision – quiet, serene, contemplative, meditative, and formal – adds a valuable perspective to our collective photographic lexicon. Make the time to savor it.

Simson energeetikaministrite kohtumisel: Atlandi-ülene energiakoostöö peab kasvama

 Cache   
Majandus- ja taristuminister Kadri Simson sõnas USAs Houstonis toimunud Atlandi-ülesel energeetikaministrite kohtumisel, et Euroopa ja Ameerika Ühendriikide vaheline energeetikaalane koostöö peab kasvama ning seda mitmes valdkonnas. Suurem koostöö tooks ministri sõnul endaga kaasa positiivse tulemi mõlemale osapoolele. „Euroopa ja USA peavad tegema senisest suuremat energeetikaalast koostööd. Rõhutasin seda ka ministrite arutelul peetud sõnavõtus, kus tõin peamiste koostöökohtadena välja puhta energia tehnoloogia alase koostöö ja teadmiste senisest jõulisema jagamise, energiavõrkude turvalisuse tagamise ja Atlandi-ülese energiakaubanduse,“ rääkis majandus- ja taristuminister Kadri Simson. Simson jätkas: „Euroopa Liidu liikmesriigid on seadnud endile väga selged kliimaeesmärgid ja töö puhtama energia ning loomulikult keskkonna nimel käib. Tegemist on küsimusega, kus Euroopa ei saa jääda üksi ning mis omab suurt mõju mõlemal pool Atlandi ookeani. Sama lugu on ka energiajulgeoleku tagamisega. Seekordsel kohtumisel oli palju juttu küberturvalisusest energeetikas ja küberrünnakute riski minimeerimisest. Turvalised võrgustikud on küsimus, millele on seni kahetsusväärselt vähe tähelepanu pööratud.“ Houstonis toimunud USA energeetikaminister Rick Perry ja Kolme Mere algatusega seotud riikide energeetikaministrite kohtumine oli transatlantilise energiakoostöö avaürituseks. Ürituse raames toimus ka eraldi kohtumine kolme Balti energiaministri ja USA energeetika aseministri Dan Brouillette’i vahel. Majandus- ja taristuminister Kadri Simson sõnas, et ameeriklased tõid kohtumisel lisaks juba mainitud teemadele arutelu alla ka Nord Stream 2 ehituse ning mitmekesise energiavarustatuse. Hiljuti heaks kiidetud gaasidirektiivi muudatused annavad võimaluse allutada Nord Stream 2 gaasiühendus Euroopa Liidu ühiste energiaturu põhimõtete alla. „USA on väga huvitatud sellest, mis toimub Baltikumis. Alates LNG alastest edusammudest, gaasiturust ning lõpetades elektrivõrkude sünkroniseerimisega. Eesti on üsna unikaalne riik maailmas, kuna suudab toota ise kogu vaja mineva energia. Selline võimekus koos hea taristuga annab kindlustunde. Elektrivõrkude ühendamine Lääne-Euroopaga tagab meile aga veelgi tugevama julgeoleku. Leppisime äsjasel 3+1 kohtumisel kokku, et kohtume samas ringis juba peagi uuesti ning tihendame energeetikaalast koostööd,“ rääkis Simson. Kolme Mere algatus on presidentide tasemel toimuv mitteametlik foorum, mis ühendab 12 Aadria, Lääne- ja Musta merega piirnevat EL liikmesriiki (Austria, Bulgaaria, Eesti, Horvaatia, Leedu, Läti, Poola, Rumeenia, Sloveenia, Slovakkia, Tšehhi ja Ungari), eesmärgiga arendada põhja-lõuna suunalist telekommunikatsiooni, energeetika ja transpordi infrastruktuuri.

Simson osaleb USA-s transatlantilisel energeetikaministrite kohtumisel

Majandus- ja taristuminister Kadri Simson osaleb 13.-14. märtsil USAs Houstonis transatlantilisel energeetikaministrite kohtumisel, kus peateemad on koostöö, kliimamuutused ning taastuvenergia ja teaduse parimate saavutuste omavaheline jagamine. Minister Simsoni sõnul on märgiline, et Lääne-, Musta ja Aadria mere regioonide koostööd hindab kõrgelt ka Ameerika Ühendriigid ning aitab kaasa, et piirkonnas oleks mitmekesine energiaga varustatus ja tagatud energia julgeolek. „Eesti on juba alustanud investeeringutega põhja-lõuna suunal, olgu selleks elektrivõrkude investeeringud Läti suunal, Eestit ja Soomet ühendav gaasitoru Balticconnector või Rail Baltic, mille trassikoridor jõuab välja nii Lääne-Euroopa kui Aadria riikideni,“ sõnas minister.

Dr. Stephen Hahn formally nominated to be next FDA commissioner

 Cache   
The Trump administration on Tuesday formally nominated Dr. Stephen Hahn to be the next commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration, sending his nomination to the US Senate.

While the Senate considers Hahn's nomination, Dr. Brett Giroir, the assistant secretary for health at the US Department of Health and Human Services, is to lead the FDA.

The previous acting commissioner of the FDA, Dr. Ned Sharpless, will return to his role as the director of the National Cancer Institute, HHS said last week. By law, Sharpless was only allowed to serve a total of 210 days under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act. His tenure ended at 5 p.m. ET Friday. Sharpless took the role of acting commissioner after former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb resigned from the agency in March.

Hahn is a well-known radiation oncology expert and is the current chief medical executive of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where he has been a professor of radiation oncology since January 2015.

Asked to describe himself when he was appointed to the leadership position at MD Anderson, Hahn used one word: "Energetic."

If confirmed by the Senate, the 59-year-old will run an agency that employs more than 17,000 people and has a $5.7 billion budget.

The agency protects public health by regulating much more than the food and drugs mentioned in the department's name. The FDA regulates medical devices, tobacco, alcohol, veterinary products, vaccines, blood, microwave ovens, nail polish and much more.

The American Association for Cancer Research on Friday applauded the nomination of Hahn in a news release.

"I have seen firsthand Dr. Hahn's extraordinary dedication and commitment to cancer patients, and the AACR is extremely confident that he will be an outstanding leader for the FDA," Dr. Margaret Foti, chief executive officer of the AACR, said in a statement Friday.

"Dr. Hahn, who is board certified in both radiation and medical oncology, is esteemed for the breadth and depth of his scientific knowledge and expertise, and he has consistently advocated for a drug review process at the FDA that is both science-directed and patient-focused," Foti said.

Hahn has been a member of the AACR since 1999.

At MD Anderson, Hahn manages a $5.2 billion operating budget, 20,300 employees, 7,000 trainees and more than 3,000 volunteers, according to the hospital.

MD Anderson is one of the world's largest cancer centers. It is ranked No. 1 in the United States for cancer care, according to the U.S. News & World Report "Best Hospitals" survey. It cared for more than 141,000 patients in 2018.

President Trump nominates Stephen Hahn as new FDA commissioner

 Cache   
President Donald Trump is expected to nominate Dr. Stephen Hahn to be the next head of the US Food and Drug Administration.

The acting commissioner of the FDA, Dr. Ned Sharpless, will return to his role as the director of the National Cancer Institute, according to a press release from the US Department of Health and Human Services.

By law, Sharpless was only allowed to serve a total of 210 days under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act. His tenure ended Friday at 5 p.m. ET.

Hahn is a well-known radiation oncology expert and is the current chief medical executive of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where has been a professor of radiation oncology since January 2015.

Asked to describe himself when he was appointed to the leadership position at MD Anderson, Hahn used one word: "Energetic."

The 59-year-old will need that energy to run an agency that employs more than 17,000 people and has a $5.7 billion budget.

The agency protects public health by regulating much more than the food and drugs mentioned in the department's name. The FDA regulates medical devices, tobacco, alcohol, veterinary products, vaccines, blood, microwave ovens, nail polish and much more.

Helping run the daily operations of MD Anderson, Hahn currently manages a $5.2 billion operating budget, 20,300 employees, 7,000 trainees and more than 3,000 volunteers, according to the hospital.

MD Anderson is one of the world's largest cancer centers. It is ranked No. 1 in the United States for cancer care, according to the U.S. News & World Report "Best Hospitals" survey.

It cares for more than 141,000 patients in 2018. It is known as a leading cancer research center, earning the most number of grants from the National Cancer Institute, according to the center. Its staff even includes a 2018 Nobel Prize winner.

At MD Anderson, Hahn had a good reputation for turning its budget around. The center faced serious financial losses in 2016, according to the Houston Chronicle. The paper said when Hahn noticed the problem, he "laid out a slide presentation to top officials that showed the elite Houston hospital was on track to lose up to $450 million in the new fiscal year without swift and decisive action."

"We were in a financial crisis, if you will, and that we had to move in a certain direction," Hahn told the Cancer Letter in 2017 in an extensive interview about that time in his work. He oversaw the largest layoffs in the cancer center history, but the center moved back into solid financial territory.

Money challenges weren't the only test of Hahn's leadership. This year, when MD Anderson received notification from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services that it could become ineligible for reimbursements after investigations found violations with its labs, Hahn publicly promised to fix the problems and took responsibility. MD Anderson explained that corrective action is ongoing, according to a letter MD Anderson sent CMS.

Hahn was first brought to MD Anderson in 2015 to run its radiation oncology division and was appointed chief medical executive in June 2018.

Before his work in Texas, Hahn was chairman of radiation oncology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine from 2005 to 2014. As vice chairman for research, he led the expansion of the department's research base, which regularly ranked first or second for NIH funding, according to the school.

In 2009, Hahn testified on Capitol Hill, taking responsibility for a doctor who worked for him who had botched the prostate cancer care of dozens of military veterans, according to Hahn's testimony. He asked the doctor to resign and created a new system to prevent future mistakes.

As a clinician, Hahn specialized in treating lung and genitourinary cancers. He is listed as an author on more than 200 peer-reviewed journal articles and other publications that focus on topics including proton therapy, radiotherapy and cost-effective treatments.

In the early 1990s, Hahn worked in Santa Rosa, California, as a medical and radiation oncologist, and took a leadership role early in his career as chief resident of internal medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. He worked from 1993-1995 in Bethesda, Maryland, as chief of the National Cancer Institute's prostate cancer clinic.

Hahn graduated with a bachelor's degree in biology from Rice University in 1980. He went to medical school in Philadelphia at Temple University, graduating in 1984.

The same year he graduated, Hahn married Lota Leigh Morning at the First Presbyterian Church of Allentown, according to the local paper at the time. Hahn told MD Anderson that the worst advice he was ever given was to "never get married."

"If I'd listened to that advice, I'd have missed spending my life with my best friend," he told MD Anderson.

The couple have four children and a rescue dog.

Their online presence shows a love of wine and travel to Italy. He told MD Anderson that he gets up at 4 a.m. every day to read and work out, and if he wasn't a doctor, he'd be running a vineyard.

Hahn has been a Republican donor, according to Federal Election Commission records. Unlike some other FDA leaders, Hahn has received very little money from the medical device and drug industries. According to CMS' Open Payments database, Hahn received $1,021.40 in lodging and travel money from a radiation oncology device company in 2017 — much less than others in his field, according to the report.

To get the top FDA job, Hahn will have to be approved by the Senate. He would inherit an agency that since March has been going through an agency-wide reorganization.

Sharpless has been the acting FDA commissioner since April and had the backing to become the agency's permanent head by dozens of medical associations and past FDA commissioners who sent letters to the White House advocating on his behalf in September.

The agency is managing a vaping crisis that has killed at least 37 people nationwide and has raised real concerns about the safety and regulation of e-cigarettes. The country's opioid crisis has 1.7 million Americans struggling with addiction and there were more than 70,200 overdose deaths in 2017, according to the CDC. There are also challenges involving delays in drug approvals, as well as problems with the manufacturing safety of drugs.

On Friday, medical associations praised Hahn for his work.

"For several years, I served with Dr. Hahn on a National Cancer Institute study section, and I always found him to be an extremely thoughtful and science-oriented grant reviewer," said American Association for Cancer Research President-elect Dr. Antoni Ribas, in a statement. Ribas is a professor of medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles. "He has always put the interests of patients first, by embracing the importance of regulatory science to truly inform and improve the way new cancer medicines are evaluated for safety and efficacy."

"We welcome the nomination of a permanent FDA commissioner at a time when the agency's role to protect and promote public health is only growing in importance," said American Heart Association CEO Nancy Brown in a statement. "Should Dr. Hahn be confirmed, we look forward to working with him to aggressively advance public health priorities in areas including tobacco control, nutrition, drug and device development and review and more."

Correction: This story has been updated to reflect that President Donald Trump has not yet nominated Dr. Stephen Hahn. It has also been updated to include the correct U.S. News & World Report ranking.

A New Parks Policy Threatens to Hurt Portland’s Poorest Residents

 Cache   
by Alex Zielinski

It’s just after 1 pm on a bright, cold Wednesday at Sunnyside Park, and several people in knit caps and down jackets carry pots of coffee and cream of broccoli soup to a picnic table. For dozens of houseless Portlanders who live near the Southeast Portland park, this is the start of the best part of their day: A free, warm lunch with friends after a long night outside.

“This is something I definitely look forward to,” says Jeff Callicrate, taking a slow sip of coffee and turning his back to the biting October wind. “It’s how I stay connected with people. It’s how I stay positive.”

He waves at a bundled couple as they approach the table, where volunteers with the homeless advocacy group Portland Assembly unpack homemade cookies and sandwiches. Nearby, several men chat about their mornings over cups of steaming soup.

“Last night was bitter cold,” Callicrate says. “This makes those nights more bearable.”

Scenes like this one are happening elsewhere across the city, too. Later in the afternoon, more than a hundred people will gather downtown in Director Park for another free meal, this time provided by the group Free Hot Soup. Around the same time, volunteers with Food Not Bombs will dish out free vegan dinners in East Portland’s Montavilla Park, and the next day, volunteers with yet another organization, Night Strike, will meet at Tom McCall Waterfront Park to serve dinner to anyone in need.

In Portland, public parks have become go-to gathering spots for organizations that offer free meals to the city’s poor communities. But the creation of a new park permit that will be required for any group hosting these “social service” gatherings has threatened to limit the ability of these scrappy, volunteer-led organizations to use public spaces to share food with Portlanders in need.

City leaders say the change is meant to help coordinate social services, while still allowing equal access to public parks for all Portlanders, regardless of economic status. But in a city in the throes of a housing crisis—and with diminishing access to affordable food and health care—restricting free services for those in poverty could exacerbate Portland’s inequity issues.

The new Portland Parks and Recreation (PPR) permit requires that any group that uses public parks to host events that support “improved health, safety, and quality of life” must purchase event liability insurance and pay a $137.75 application fee for the permit. (If the group applies for a permit at least 30 days before its planned event, that application fee will be waived.) The permit also restricts the number of social service gatherings in parks, with each Portland park only being allowed to host one per week.

Previously, social service events have been required to apply for a generic event permit from PPR, but that rule was only sporadically enforced. Organizations that serve meals on multiple days in a row at the same parks, like Portland Assembly and Free Hot Soup, say that despite not having permits, they’ve always felt supported, not policed, by Parks staff. At least, they say, until 2018.

According to Portland City Commissioner Amanda Fritz, who served as the Parks Commissioner from 2013 to 2018, the permit is the result of a single conflict at one park. When the city created Director Park in 2009, the public plaza at SW 9th and Park was expected to be financially self-sufficient. The city hoped the permit fees associated with renting the space for private events would cover the general maintenance costs.

Then Free Hot Soup began using the centrally located plaza to serve meals every weekday evening. The group didn’t have a permit.

Fritz says Free Hot Soup’s nightly presence in the small park kept other groups from getting a permit to rent out the space, with those groups also citing fears that Free Hot Soup’s popular gathering would crowd out their private events. Without any revenue coming in from Free Hot Soup, this created a problem.

“Parks depend on revenue for a certain amount of its budget,” says Fritz. “That’s the reality.”

Fritz says Free Hot Soup’s gatherings, which often attracted nearly 200 guests nightly, sometimes left Director Park in disarray, leaving unexpected work for park staff the following morning. Park rangers had also grown tired of having to intervene when groups that had obtained permits for the plaza clashed with Free Hot Soup volunteers about who could use the space.

In August 2018, Fritz was in the process of helping Free Hot Soup find a more permanent, less budget-draining location when Mayor Ted Wheeler decided to redistribute city bureaus among city commissioners. Suddenly, the Parks bureau became Commissioner Nick Fish’s responsibility. Fritz says she briefed Fish on the Free Hot Soup quandary, but notes that at the time, Fish was rightly preoccupied with addressing the PPR’s broader budget shortfalls.

Free Hot Soup didn’t hear anything from the Parks bureau for months and continued serving meals in Director Park. Then, in October 2019, the Parks bureau unveiled the social service permit as a citywide solution to the dust-up at Director Park. Unlike Fritz, Fish says the decision had nothing to do with finances.

“Revenue is not the driver here,” says Fish. “The goal was always to reduce barriers to providing these kinds of services, balanced against the need for our parks to be available for all users.”

While he’s grateful that groups like Free Hot Soup are serving “a real need,” Fish says he wants to ensure that all Portlanders have equal access to public parks. That means every group that uses a park needs to follow the same rules.

“It is not an unhealthy thing to require some mutual accountability,” says Fish.

“We’re always trying to improve the way Parks serve the public,” says Todd Lofgren, the deputy director of PPR. Lofgren adds that the new permits will help staff to both better prepare for planned events and refer those needing free meals to planned gatherings at specific parks.

The new rules, and the costs that come with them, won’t have the same effect on every social service provider. Groups that already serve people in parks only once a week, as well as groups that have the money to buy insurance, don’t expect to be impacted by the permit requirements.

“As a larger organization, this change won’t affect us,” says Lesley Snider, founder of Night Strike, a nonprofit that, since 2012, has had a permit to run its weekly program in Waterfront Park. “But it could have a big impact on the smaller groups who aren’t insured.”

If the city begins enforcing the new policy, groups that operate on shoestring budgets—like Free Hot Soup, Portland Assembly, and others—say they’ll be forced to shut down, cutting off a critical service to poor people living in Portland.

“This is a revenue problem that’s the city’s own doing,” says Sara Rudolph, a volunteer with Portland Assembly. “And the city’s poorest populations have been caught in the crossfire.”

Fish says he would never approve a policy that targeted a vulnerable group, and he’s dismissed concerns about the new permit by offering to help raise funds to cover insurance costs. As for the groups that are built on a model of serving a daily meal at a consistent location, Fish suggests they simply relocate to a different park every day of the week. (As long as those other parks don’t have their own social service gatherings scheduled that week.)

Volunteers familiar with the homeless community say that proposal could do more harm than good.

“Our folks are hyperlocal,” says John Mayer, a coordinator with Beacon PDX, another group that serves lunch at Sunnyside Park. “To expect them to hop around and not have a solid place to meet, the city is promoting instability.”


“If you have money in this city, we have a lot of spaces where you can freely exist. But if you don’t have a car or a house, there are very few places where you can exist. When we further limit those spaces, we’re making a city that is skewing towards wealth.” -Kaia Sand, director of Street Roots


A commitment to consistency is reflected in Mayer’s work. He previously helped run a weekly dinner program in the basement of the United Methodist Church across the street from Sunnyside Park. That Wednesday gathering, “Hard Times Dinner,” abruptly ended its 38-year run in September after receiving an eviction notice from the church’s new owner.

Mayer and other Hard Times volunteers formed Beacon PDX as a way to continue serving the Southeast homeless community, partnering with Portland Assembly to make free lunch a weekday staple at Sunnyside Park.

“So much about their lives is unpredictable,” Mayer says of those who benefit from the service. “Giving this community something stable to depend on is the least we can do.”

David C., a regular at the Sunnyside lunches and one of the many Portlanders who lives in a tent, says the gatherings allow him to stay in touch with friends. He also appreciates the relatively rare opportunity to be taken care of. “It’s the people that make this,” he says. “The people who take time out of their day to bring us food and show us they care. That means a lot.”

For some, these daily gatherings are also critical for survival. Craig Bordelon, who lives in a car in Southeast Portland, struggles to live off his monthly Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) stipend of $200—especially since he doesn’t have a way to cook food. Warm meals in public parks have become an essential part of his diet. “I’d probably get sick or starve without them,” Bordelon says.

Mayer expects the new permit was partially inspired by complaints from homeowners and business leaders who don’t want to see homeless people in nearby parks. He says his group is regularly harassed by Sunnyside Park neighbors.

By instituting the new permit policies, Mayer says, “The city is signaling to the public that those who own a home are worth more than people without.”

Kaia Sand, director of the street newspaper and homeless advocacy group Street Roots, echoes Mayer’s concerns. She says she’s wary of any restrictions to public space that appear to fall along class lines.

“If you have money in this city, we have a lot of spaces where you can freely exist,” says Sand. “But if you don’t have a car or a house, there are very few places where you can exist. When we further limit those spaces, we’re making a city that is skewing towards wealth.”

Portland Assembly’s Rudolph says groups like hers fill a need that isn’t being met by city and county services. She believes if low-income Portlanders had more access to affordable housing—where they could prepare and cook their own food and store perishable items—groups like hers wouldn’t have to use public spaces to feed others.

We go to where the people are,” says Rudolph. “And right now, that’s outside. We are fighting so hard to do a little to help the city’s poorest people, but [the city] keeps making it more difficult.”

Troy Howard, a volunteer with Free Hot Soup, says his group chose to hold its nightly events in Director Park—a bustling plaza in an upscale part of downtown Portland—to draw the public’s attention to the above-average levels of food insecurity in Multnomah County.

“A big part of our location is to create a spectacle,” says Howard. “To show as many people as possible that others living in this city are food insecure.”

Howard says the new permit program shows that City Hall is out of touch with the needs of Portland’s low-income and homeless residents. He says the program also illustrates the pitfalls of a city government where major bureaus are led by rotating politicians, who may or may not be well-versed in the services their bureaus are expected to provide.


“I will welcome being arrested for feeding people in need, if it comes to it. We’re reasonable people and we’re doing reasonable work.” -John Mayer, volunteer with Beacon PDX


“It’s super frustrating,” says Howard, pointing to the clunky handoff of PPR between Fritz and Fish. “We have been very consistent and reliable from the start. It’s [the city] that has not been consistent, and we’re going to be the ones that pay for it.”

But the smaller social services groups—the ones that are the most threatened by the new regulations—aren’t shutting down without a fight. Howard, Rudolph, and Mayer all say they’d risk arrest to continue serving meals to Portlanders.

“I will welcome being arrested for feeding people in need, if it comes to it,” says Mayer. “We’re reasonable people and we’re doing reasonable work.”

And if the city plans on strictly enforcing the permit rules, a number of the groups say they’re prepared to sue. They wouldn’t be the first social services organizations to challenge a regional government over these types of restrictions. Volunteers in major cities like St. Louis, Houston, Philadelphia, and Orlando have all filed costly lawsuits against their city governments for introducing policies that place limitations on feeding the homeless in public. In 2018, Florida’s 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals decided that sharing food with people in need is a protected form of political expression, ruling that it was unconstitutional for the City of Fort Lauderdale to force its local Food Not Bombs group to obtain a permit to serve food in public parks.

Oregon’s 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which is generally considered more progressive than Florida’s 11th Circuit, has yet to hear a similar case.

Tristia Bauman, an attorney with the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty, says what’s happening in Portland is similar to the Fort Lauderdale case.

“When we know people need hot food and the city has provided no alternatives, and we know people will continue to break rules to feed the public—that’s a political statement,” Bauman says. “Any restriction of that could end in a legal challenge.”

While PPR says it will waive the permit application fee for social service groups, Bauman says the restrictions that accompany that policy—like only waiving the fee if groups apply a month in advance and can afford to purchase insurance—could also be interpreted as restricting free speech.

“Portland is opening the door to legal challenges. Why?” asks Bauman. “If the city wants to end food sharing in parks... instead of costly litigation, it could invest in more shelter spaces or creating its own food-sharing program.”

Fish says he’s looked into city programs in cities like Seattle that provide indoor kitchen and dining spaces that can be used by social services groups to serve the public. He’s also spoken with a downtown church that’s interested in providing space for Free Hot Soup. But before looking for permanent solutions, Fish says the bureau will prioritize educating groups about the new permits and helping them to comply with the new restrictions.

Back at Sunnyside Park, the conversation has turned to the autumn weather. A group of men talk about finding new sleeping bags and blankets that would make nights spent outside a little more tolerable.

“It’s getting colder and darker,” says David C., holding his cup of soup. “That’s another reason why these warm meals are so important. If the city is planning on taking this away, it’s going to be a long winter.”

MIKE’S DOORS

Mike Pember
Museum Doors
It is with sadness that we report the passing of former Cavendish Historical Society (CHS) board member Mike Pember. Mike quietly went about getting things done, be it the painting of the fence around the War Memorial, or getting the right things we needed for the Grange Hall Curtain. However, he had two questions. “What are you gonna do with it?” was his favorite as we’d go through collections. The second and more frequent question was  “Where are those doors?” The doors to the Museum have been installed and painted and will be  remembered as “Mike’s doors.” Our condolences to his wife Sandra Russo, to his children and to his many friends and family.

NO, MR. HICKERNELL IS NOT BURIED IN THE BASEMENT


Hickernell House
We posted this story on the CHS website, linking it to several Facebook sites. There was an incredible response with people posting about the HIckernells, who lived in the Gothic revival stone house that can be seen from 131. Below is the story with the addition of various comments made.

This past winter, while talking with Phyllis Bont, we learned about what happened when Mr. Hickernell died. Supposedly he went missing around the same time Mrs. Hickernell had a cement floor poured in the basement. Not surprisingly, the rumor ensued that Mr. Hickernell was murdered and buried in the basement. Phyllis was quick to reply that Mr. Hickernell had died in the garage, as her husband Dr. Gene Bont, responded to the incident.

Theresa Hickernell, who claimed to have been from Austria and educated in private schools, had issues with Gene over the funding of public schools. Needless to say, it was a bit challenging for her to have him respond and ask what would have felt like extremely personal questions,, yet they were required in order for him to render the most appropriate care. “She just said all sorts of things to people about Gene after that,” Phyllis explained. “Fortunately, people knew what she was like.”

While CHS board member Bruce McEnaney, when learning of how Mr. Hickernell actually died, was disappointed to see “a perfectly good story wrecked,” he was surprised at what we were able to learn about Theresa Hickernell thanks to various leads Phyllis provided.

As it turned out, there is no evidence that Theresa Ruth Swetitch Hickernell-Smith was raised in Austria. She was born in St. Louis, Missouri on July 22, 1912 and died in St. Louis County, Minnesota Jul 22, 2003 at the age of 90.

To the stories she told of being part of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) in WWII, we found records that showed she was a trainee in the WFTD Class 43-4 being a “Washback from 43-2.” With no evidence that she graduated from the program, she was a regular contributor to the WASP Newsletter. In March 1980 she wrote the following:

"Yes, I was in the 1943 class of 43-2 at Houston Airport. From Houston, I flew to Goldsboro, NC, to be married to Francis Nelson Hickernell by a real Irish priest in a Catholic chapel. We had been married nine days when he was shipped overseas for four years. In the meantime, I had become associated with an accounting firm in Houston. I was later contacted by one of the generals in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, to do some auditing, flew to Whitehorse, stayed for two and really got to see the country in the rough. From there down to Seattle to some more flying - even soloed in a seaplane in Ketchikan, Alaska. Then headed for Baranoff Island, Alaska, for special work in accounting and found out how the commercial salmon industry works. Back in Seattle, I started mountain climbing in the Cascades. When the war was finally over, my husband and I met after all those years and decided upon a second honeymoon. We started out in December and ended in June, meanwhile looking for a place to settle and go into business. We decided on Richmond, VA, where we opened up a flower shop that was so successful that after we had had the shop only ten years we were able to close it regularly and do a great deal of traveling. I've been around the world nine times and have made thirteen trips to Europe. After having the shop for 20 years, we retired to Cavendish, VT.

I've climbed many of the high mountains, but the one I take special pride in is Mount Everest. In 1967 & 1968. I was a lone trekker with 8 porters, a cook, and head Sherpa. Although there was a ban on the peak, I was allowed to climb to 21,000 feet. I1 have 2800 feet of color film of this trek.

My husband and I both own a fire opal mine. We do gem hunting and go big-game sport fishing. Again this year I am trying to break the women's world record of 1170 pounds on giant blue fin tuna. Have landed many in the 900 class but I'm still trying for the big one.

These are only a small part of my adventures. I'd love to hear more about 43-2.

Mr. Hickernell's grave
Sgt Francis Nelson Hickernell died on April 8, 1982, approximately two years after his wife submitted her note to WASP Newsletter. He is buried in Lewistown Mifflin County, PA.

Theresa would marry twice more, divorcing her second husband. Her last spouse, Ralph Smith made the decision to move from Cavendish back to his hometown in Minnesota as Theresa had developed Alzheimer’s Disease and he needed assistance caring for her.

In the original post, Phyllis talked about how her son, Geno, deviled Mrs. Hickernell. As it turns out, Carole Bont was the organizer.  

Carol writes, I do remember hearing about Mr. Hickernell's death in his garage. I was also part of an earlier large group of teens who stood across the street from the back of her house while she threatened us with arrest. I believe some deputized adult came by and told us we could not go on her property. After the group of kids I was with left and went elsewhere, we came back by her house on our way home and I saw that someone had covered the top of her fence with shaving cream. She was her own worst enemy. If she had been remotely nice to any of us she would not have attracted our negative attention

Comments to post
• I grew up right next to her house, she used to threaten us kids and leave rat poison for our dogs. One time she told me and my dad she was going to skin our dog alive in front of us.

• We were scared of her when we walked by her house after getting off the bus. She usually yelled something at us.

• She never smiled at all.

• I took photos of this house which was clearly empty of occupants. After developing the film I noticed a white image of a person standing in the window looking out at me. He is still there. Protecting his precious gem collection perhaps.

• I lived next door for 6 years never saw her outside. When I was younger I was in the church youth group and we went to her home and she was very nice, she played a small instrument sort of like a harp but very small after that I wasn't afraid of her or that house.

• I helped build those stone walls... Working for Boy Towle and Melvin Buck... Mr. H was ok... Mrs. H definitely did not like kids... If you wanted to get in trouble, just walk on their lawn....

• Old lady Hickernell was a miserable old gal lol. I remember being a child and walking by her house when her husband had a heart attack shoveling....he wasn’t buried in the basement. Although I wouldn’t have put it past her lol

• If I remember correctly the day Theresa Hickernell died Cavendish experienced the "tornado" that caused all of the damage up through Cavendish Center. [July 2003]….Knowing Tess for many years, we always said that that microburst was Tess coming through Cavendish, one last time!!

• I grew up on the other side of her and learned that she was nice as long as you were respectful of her. She even invited my parents, Sonia and myself over for Almendetto wine one night, I was probably 13 at the time! Worse stuff ever!!! We were always cordial and she even liked my boys.

• When we were kids we would say “Hi, nice day.” to Mr. Hickernell. He would say “Nice day for a murder”. Didn’t think he was serious.

• I remember one time Christmas caroling (I think the youth group from Cavendish Baptist) and she actually invited us into the house for refreshments and gave us a small tour of part of the house. I think we were there a while and she was quite pleasant.

• I painted her house in the early 80's, such a warm, kind, loving and giving woman, just adored my children and insisted that she pay twice the quote I gave for her house. None of this is true, of course, except that I did paint her house.

• I was driving on High St by Frank Guica's house and she was out walking. She turned and saw my car and continued walking down the middle of the road and made me wait until she was ready to move to the side.




Making bracelets
CARMINE GUICA YOUNG HISTORIANS
The first months of the new school year are very busy, and this year is no exception. New this year is the  Preserve &Serve Program where students serve each other, their families, community, state and country. In so doing, they learn basic civics, how their community functions and what type of citizens we want them to become. The students in 5th & 6th graders have been doing fall chores for residents, while the 4th grade is maintaining the school gardens. Grades 2-6 made bracelets, which they sold and raised $317 to help Team Rubicon provide hurricane relief efforts in the Bahamas. The 6thgrade participated in RiverSweep, helping to preserve the Black River.

At Coolidge
Trips so far have included: Calvin Coolidge Homestead; Tings Farm; Fitton Mill; Foliage Train; and Sturbridge Village. We have brought incredible speakers to the school, including the Chief of the Elnu, Roger Longtoe Sheehan, and experimental archaeologist Charlie Paquin.

For our holiday program this year, we will be celebrating “Winter Solstice.” The students will be making luminaries. If you have any Oui Yogurt glass jars, please drop them off at CTES or contact us at the address above to arrange for a pickup.


Center School
CAVENDISH SCHOOLS: Part III Center Rd School

Inspired by the paintings of John Snarksi, which were recently re hung in the Cavendish Town Elementary School (CTES), the spring edition of The Scribbler included the histories of The Cavendish Academy, Wheeler School; Fittonsville School; Duttonsville School; and the Rumke School. The summer edition of this newsletter included Tarbell Hill, featuring stories from Carmine Guica. This issue features stories from Sandra Stearns’ book “ Cavendish Hillside Farms 1939-1957/.

I attended the Center School, a rural one room school for eight years. We had no physical education, as such, but a walk of a mile each end of the day probably filled the need. Jannette, my sister, got married the same year I finished fifth grade. Thereafter I had to walk horses during the winter months before school each morning to clean the barn and feed the heifers there. After school there was wood to lug in, calves and horses to feed, cows to water and milking to be done.

We walked to school, rain or shine, balmy days and sub-zero. Often the roads were not plowed and we waded through snow up to our knees, sometimes almost to our waist. The larger, older ones (Jannette and later Donald Ackley) would go first and break the trail.

On below zero days we wasted no time on the trip and still arrived half frozen. Our fingers would be numb; our ears, nose, cheeks and chin tingling with the cold. When we arrived, if we were lucky, the wood stove in the corner would be burning briskly and our chills soon chased away. However, on the coldest days it took almost all day to reheat the room that had had no heat since the previous afternoon. Usually one of the Johnson children, who lived nearest to the school, was janitor. It was their job to lug wood in from the woodshed, build the fire in the morning and lug water by pail from Quinns. The janitor also had to sweep the floors each day after school and cleaned the chalkboards and erasers.

An oil heater was installed in 1947. Thereafter oil was lugged from the large storage tank in the woodshed and the fire kept going throughout the night, turned low. It went out over the weekend, but the janitor started it late Sunday afternoon in the winter time. ..

We did not have hot lunch. The Johnson children and usually Charlotte Quinn, living so close to the schoolhouse, went home for lunch. The rest of us carried a lunchbox and usually a thermos of milk. Those thermoses were glass lined and often times did not survive the trips to and from school.

I have never regretted the eight years I spent at the Center School. There were sometimes eight grades, usually only 6 or 7, with 15 or 20 students. The older students, when their work was finished, helped the younger ones practice phonics or listened to them read. They provided help with crafts and at playtime.

I was the only one in my grade for seven years so it was quite a challenge when I started high school. I had the best of both world. I did my own work and often did work with the grade above me. I also got to help the grades below me. I could work at my own pace and generally finished with each subject book ever year.

We studied reading, writing, spelling, arithmetic, history, geography, health and language. In the eighth grade we always had a semester of Vermont and local history. Our spare time was filled with craft projects and reading books.

Election Day Hijinks, Obama Robocalls, Who's on Ballot, Election Watch Parties

Mississippi voters headed to the polls starting at 7 a.m. Tuesday to vote for top State and regional offices, including the election for governor. Polls will remain open until 7 p.m., when election workers will begin tallying up the vote. Mississippians must bring a State-approved form of photo ID to vote, such as a driver's license or student ID.

More information on voter ID is available on the secretary of state's website. A sample ballot for Hinds County voters is available here.

The secretary of state's office spent much of the morning correcting misinformation. Some voters received letters from an organization called the Center for Voter Information, which gave "neighborhoods a 'grade' based upon voters' alleged previous vote history according to party affiliation."

Mississippi does not register by party, though.

"Correspondence like this is intimidating and misleading and ultimately deters voters from going to the polls to cast a ballot," Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, who is running as the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor, said in a statement Tuesday morning.

Also on Tuesday morning, the Hinds County Facebook page initially sent out a message encouraging voters to "VOTE IN THE MISSISSIPPI GENERAL ELECTION TODAY, NOVEMBER 11TH." That message was up for over an hour before Hinds County replaced it with today's correct date: Nov. 5.

The cover of the current Jackson Free Press also gave the wrong election date due to a typo no one caught before the issue went to print. We have sent out notices in social media correcting the error. A small graphic on the cover said, "Vote on Tuesday, November 8," rather than Nov. 5, although a full-page add on page 5 listed the correct date. We apologize for missing the mistake.

Last-Minute Endorsements, Last-Minute Fearmongering

In the Mississippi governor's race, Republicans last night began circulating a recording of a robocall former President Barack Obama made, urging Democrats to vote for their nominee, Jim Hood, even as others claimed on social media that it was fake.

"At the 11th hour Jim Hood had Barack Obama endorse him for Governor of Mississippi," current Republican Gov. Phil Bryant tweeted Monday night. "Now we finally know what he really believes. Vote Republican tomorrow and end this once and for all."

While Bryant and other Republicans sought to portray the Obama endorsement as a scandal, they have openly touted President Donald J. Trump's support for Reeves—despite the fact that Trump is facing an impeachment inquiry, is implicated in multiple federal and state criminal investigations, and that numerous of his former aides from his time on the campaign trail and in the White House are under investigation, in prison, or awaiting sentencing.

Democratic sources confirmed to Jackson Free Press editor Donna Ladd last night that the robocall was real. On Tuesday morning, Barack Obama Communications Director Katie Hill also confirmed to the Jackson Free Press that the voice on the robocall is indeed the former president's.

Going after Democrats by emphasizing their ties to people of color is not a new tactic in Mississippi politics—or in this election. During both his Republican primary against Republican opponent Bill Waller and the general election against Hood, Reeves sent out mailers showing his opponents near images of national figures like U.S. House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and U.S. House Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

During Reeves' first race for Mississippi treasurer in 2003, Democrats accused the GOP of helping him beat a more qualified opponent by sending mailers out to white voters that included a photo of the Democratic candidate, Gary Anderson, who is African American.

On Tuesday morning, Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris tweeted out a last-minute endorsement for Democratic nominee for Mississippi Attorney General Jennifer Riley Collins.

"@JenniferforAG is a proven public servant and civil rights lawyer; she has the lived experience Mississippi families desperately need to move the state forward. Mississippians, you have a chance to make history today," Harris tweeted.

Concerns About Jim Crow-Era Election System

If she won, Collins would be not only the first African American elected to statewide office since the late 1800s, but the first African American woman ever elected to a statewide office in Mississippi.

Mississippi's Jim Crow-era election system for statewide offices could prove troublesome for Democrats, though. Under it, Democrats must win not only a majority of the vote, but a majority of Mississippi House Districts. If they do not, the GOP-dominated Mississippi House would select the next governor.

A federal judge declined to block the law ahead of the election. While some polls show Hood with a narrow lead over Reeves in the governor's race, plaintiffs in that court case told the judge that a Democratic candidate might have to win 55% of the vote in order to win the election under the current system because of the way House districts are distributed.

When Mississippi first adopted the 1890 Constitution that implemented this system, one of its framers, then House Rep. James K. Vardamn, explicitly said that the purpose of the new constitution was to curtail black voting power.

"There is no use to equivocate or lie about the matter. Mississippi's constitutional convention was held for no other purpose than to eliminate the n——r from politics; not the ignorant—but the n-——," admitted Vardaman, who later became governor and then a U.S. senator.

That provision last came into play in 1999, when Democrat Ronnie Musgrove won a majority of votes but not a majority of House districts. The Democratic majority House voted to make him governor. If a Democrat in a statewide race but not a majority of House districts, that could potentially throw the issue back to the federal courts, who would then have to decide whether or not the system is constitutional.

Aside from Collins, Democrats are running three other African Americans at the top of statewide tickets, with former Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree running for secretary of state; former Bolton, Miss., Alderwoman Addie Lee Green running for treasurer; and businessman Robert Amos running for insurance commissioner.

Watch Parties

In the race for governor, Hood is holding an election night watch party in Jackson at The King Edward Hotel's 2nd floor ballroom at 235 W. Capitol St. starting at 7 p.m.

The Mississippi Republican Party is holding an election-night watch party for Reeves and all other GOP statewide candidates beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Jackson at The Westin Hotel on 407 South Congress St.

Jae Crowder gets hit in groin by James Harden, called for foul, ejected (video)

 Cache   
If the over-the-top dancing travel call on James Harden was cathartic for anyone bothered by the Rockets' perpetual rule-bender, this was nearly the opposite. Late in Houston's win over the Grizzlies last night, Memphis forward Jae Crowder got hit in the groin by Harden. Yet, Crowder got whistled for a foul – and ejected for arguing the call.
          

What Paul George's impending return means for the Clippers

 Cache   
The Los Angeles Clippers, who dismissed the rival Lakers to open the season and look dominant with reigning Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard at the helm of the operation, are a week away from gaining strength. Days after ramping up his practice workload over the weekend, injured six-time All-Star Paul George is still targeting the middle of next week for his return to game action, The Athletic's Sam Amick reported. The Clips are reportedly planning for George to debut on the road against either the Houston Rockets on Nov. 13 or the New Orleans Pelicans the following night, resting on one end of that back-to-back.

Responding to the Hong Kong protests

 Cache   

By Mike Poteet

A controversial tweet

In early October, Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey tweeted a simple image that read “Fight for Freedom. Stand With Hong Kong.” This tweet, which would seem innocuous to many in the United States, drew immediate and sustained backlash from both Chinese officials and businesses due to the complicated, contentious relationship between China and Hong Kong, a semiautonomous territory that, unlike mainland China, operates as a limited democracy with a capitalist economy.

According to the Associated Press, the Chinese consulate in Houston expressed “strong dissatisfaction” with the team following Morey’s tweet; and both Chinese state television and Tencent, a streaming media company with whom the NBA recently signed a $1.5 billion deal, announced they wouldn’t show Rockets games.

Yet the protests that have taken place in Hong Kong this summer and fall hold far more significance than the relationship between the NBA and China. That they should have any impact at all on something as far afield as pro sports only underscores their significance and the serious political crisis they represent. 

Months of protest

According to a New York Times article from last June, the protests initially arose in opposition to a bill considered by Hong Kong’s legislative body, the Legislative Council. The bill would have allowed the territory to extradite criminal suspects to jurisdictions with which it has no formal extradition treaty, including mainland China.

Observers warned that the Chinese government could use the bill to exert increased pressure on Hong Kong. “If enacted, this law would extend the ability of the Mainland authorities to target critics, human rights activists, journalist[s], NGO workers and anyone else in Hong Kong, much in the same way they do at home,” stated Man-Kei Tam, director of Amnesty International Hong Kong.

On June 9, more than a million people marched in opposition to the bill — nearly one of every seven Hong Kongers and the biggest public protest Hong Kong had seen since the pro-democracy Umbrella Movement of 2014. A New York Times video shows that police used tear gas against protesters on June 12, along with pepper spray, rubber bullets and batons, after a small number of protesters threw objects at them. Anger over the police response inspired even larger protests on June 16, when as many as two million people came together in the largest protest in Hong Kong’s history.

Carrie Lam, Hong Kong’s Beijing-appointed chief executive, withdrew the extradition bill in early September, but the withdrawal wasn’t enough to bring protests to an end. One commonly heard chant — “Five demands, not one less” — refers to the protesters’ aims. The first was the withdrawal of the extradition bill; the others include (1) no more descriptions of the protests as “riots,” (2) unconditional release and amnesty for arrested protesters, (3) independent inquiry into police behavior, and (4) full and genuine democracy.

Throughout the summer and into autumn, protests continued and were increasingly marked by violent confrontations between demonstrators and police. On October 1 — a holiday that marked the 70th anniversary of the Communist state founded in 1949 — police shot a protester with live ammunition for the first time.

CNBC reported that on October 4, Lam invoked emergency powers and banned face masks at all public gatherings, claiming the move would deter violence because demonstrators cannot conceal their identities. (Many protesters wear masks and respirators to guard against tear gas.) The ban provoked a fresh wave of fiery protests. Lam’s critics worry what further actions might follow and how those actions might weaken Hong Kong’s special status, which they believe China has been steadily eroding. 

Mixed U.S. responses

In mid-October, the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. It would require the State Department to certify every year “whether Hong Kong remains sufficiently autonomous from Beijing [China] to justify its unique treatment,” as quoted in The Washington Post. This unique treatment includes exemptions from tariffs and other U.S. laws that apply to all other Chinese exports. If the bill clears the Senate, where it has bipartisan support, it would need President Trump’s signature to become law.

Publicly, Trump hasn’t spoken much about the protests, but the Financial Times reports that he promised Chinese president Xi Jinping that the United States would “tone down criticism of Beijing’s approach” in order to revive trade talks. However, at the United Nations in September, Trump called on China to honor its commitment to “protect Hong Kong’s freedom, legal system and democratic ways of life,” adding, “We are all counting on President Xi as a great leader,” as quoted in Vox.

Some American businesses find themselves caught between democratic ideals and the pursuit of profit. The NBA, for instance, forced Daryl Morey to apologize for his tweet, then issued its own apology while simultaneously trying to defend free speech, a response that pleased neither Chinese officials nor many US observers. Meanwhile, Apple pulled a map app from its digital store that protesters had been using to track police movement, and shoe company Vans pulled the top vote-getter in a sneaker design competition because the design depicted the protests. 

Christian response

“The Chinese Communist Party may be the greatest existential threat to the Hong Kong church,” notes Christianity Today. Nevertheless, about 900,000 Hong Kongers (almost 12%) are Christian, and Christians enjoy more freedom in Hong Kong than believers in mainland China.

Several church organizations in Hong Kong expressed concern about the extradition bill while calling for restraint and peace from protesters. According to a United Methodist News Service article, the ecumenical Hong Kong Christian Council issued a statement urging the reopening of now-closed public spaces for peaceful demonstration, restraint from using force on the part of police, and dialogue and “rational discussion” between the government and protesters.

Many Christians in Hong Kong have joined the protests themselves. In late August, the first large-scale rally specifically for Christians drew thousands. Its motto was “Salt and light, for justice we walk together.” Attendees formed part of a human chain stretching for more than 21 miles and sang the hymn “Sing Alleluia to the Lord,” which quickly became an unofficial “anthem” for the Hong Kong protests — partly because religious gatherings are exempt from Hong Kong legislation regulating public assemblies.

For believers who choose to participate in the protests, taking to the streets to defend their civil liberties and advocate for greater freedom is an expression of how they understand the gospel. Andrea Wong, an 18-year-old protester, told The New York Times, “I am very certain that Jesus would not have stayed home enjoying the air-conditioning. He would have been out here helping people and marching.”

It looked like the Houston Astros were finally going to end the bizarre pattern of World Series games this fall. And by that, I mean the home team would finally win a game. But the visiting Washington Nationals had other ideas, and for the first time ever, the visiting team won every game of a World Series. With a two-run lead in the seventh inning, the Astros were 8 outs away from winning their second […]

AP Top 25: Navy Gives AAC 4 Teams, 3rd-Most By Conference

 Cache   

By RALPH D. RUSSO

Navy moved into The Associated Press college football poll at No. 25, giving the American Athletic Conference four ranked teams, more than all but the Big Ten and the Southeastern Conference.

With nine ranked teams off this weekend, including four of the top five, there was little movement throughout the AP Top 25 presented by Regions Bank. LSU is No. 1 for a second consecutive week and Alabama is No. 2. The Tigers and Crimson Tide on Saturday will play the first regular-season 1-2 game since the same two did it in 2011.

Navy joins fellow AAC members No. 17 Cincinnati, No. 19 Memphis and No. 23 SMU in the Top 25. Four ranked teams matches a high for the 7-year-old American, which was born from the collapse of the Big East.

Ohio State is No. 3 as the margin among the top three teams widened a bit after last week’s historically close vote. The first-place vote distribution stayed the same. The Tigers received 1,479 points and 17 first-place votes, Alabama had 1,472 points and 21 first places, and Ohio State got 1,467 points and 17 firsts. No. 4 Clemson received the other seven first-place votes and Penn State remained No. 5.

Georgia jumped two spots to No. 6 after beating Florida in the weekend’s biggest game. The Gators slipped four spots to No. 10.

POLL POINTS

The first College Football Playoff selection committee rankings come out Tuesday night.

Since the selection committee started ranking teams around this point in the season, only last year did it have the same four teams in the top as the AP poll that was released two days earlier. And never has the first CFP rankings’ first four matched the preceding AP top four.

Top fours in order:

2014

AP: Mississippi State, Florida State, Alabama, Auburn

CFP: Mississippi State, Auburn, Florida State, Mississippi

2015

AP: Ohio State, Baylor, Clemson, LSU

CFP: Clemson, LSU, Ohio State, Alabama

CONFERENCE CALL

The American also had four ranked teams on Nov. 8, 2015 (Houston, Temple, Navy, Memphis). The Midshipmen are ranked for the first time since 2017 and already have more than doubled their win total from last season’s disappointing 3-9 finish.

SEC — 5 (Nos. 1, 2, 6, 10, 12)

Pac-12 — 2 (Nos. 7, 8)

Mountain West — 2 (Nos. 21, 24)

Independent — 1 (No. 15)

RANKED vs. RANKED

No. 1 LSU at No. 2 Alabama. A playoff eliminator? Or is this just for seeding?

No. 5 Penn State at No. 13 Minnesota. Coach P.J. Fleck’s unbeaten Gophers could row the boat right into playoff contention.

No. 19 Iowa at No. 18 Wisconsin. Huge game in the Big Ten West.

George Mitchell's foundation challenges industry orthodoxy

 Cache   

 

WASHINGTON - Four years ago, a group of oil and gas executives and environmental experts, assembled by the Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation, prepared to publish a report calling on Texas regulators to adopt rules to reduce the risk of water contamination from oil and gas production — in response to numerous complaints by residents living close to drilling sites.

But the oil executives, after working on the study for three years, started getting cold feet about having their companies’ names attached to those findings. The report was put on hold, never to be published, said Marilu Hastings, vice president of sustainability programs at the foundation.

“It was the usual suspects,” she said, declining to name the executives or their companies. “On the day before publication, led by one company in particular, they said they would not put their names and dropped out. It was probably the plan from the beginning.”

Founded by George Mitchell — the man often often dubbed the “father of fracking” — the Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation has used the family’s oil fortune to promote environmental causes for decades. But six years after Mitchell’s death, the Austin-based foundation has evolved into an unlikely critic of the oil and gas industry, as the shale boom sweeps the United States.

Run by the Mitchells’ children and grandchildren, the foundation has become one of the nation’s leading patrons of research into the public health and the environmental effects of hydraulic fracturing, as well as a passionate advocate for the tightening of government regulations over drilling — the very thing U.S. oil and gas companies lobbied against for years.

The campaign was initiated by Mitchell himself, who at the last board meeting before his death implored his family to work to force companies to drill more responsibly, according to notes from the meeting.

“All the environmental complaints everyone was making about fracking, he felt strongly they were totally unnecessary, and you could do this right,” said Katherine Lorenz, Mitchell’s granddaughter and president of the Mitchell Foundation. “He believed the problems are due to negligence, and he was outspoken on the greater need for regulation. He said that over and over to me.”

For more than a decade, U.S. oil and gas companies have fought claims of flammable water and methane leaks that contribute to climate change, maintaining that the hydraulic fracturing boom has proceeded without long-term damage to land and water — save a few isolated incidents by less reputable firms. But as the family of one of the industry’s legends turns on them, it has made for an awkward situation.

Asked about the foundation’s call for more regulations on oil and gas drilling, Todd Staples, president of the Texas Oil and Gas Association, declined an interview and sent a statement praising Mitchell’s “pioneering work.” He added, “All sectors of oil and natural gas are heavily regulated and the industry continues to be a leader in developing solutions that are advancing environmental progress.”

Steve Everly, a consultant and spokesman for the industry group Texans for Natural Gas, questioned the notion that more research on fracking was needed while downplaying any conflict between the foundation’s work and industry.

“This isn’t Earthworks or the Sierra Club saying ban natural gas,” he said. “George was a little more progressive than others may have been. Different companies and executives have different views.” 

Unusual oil man

Long before he revolutionized the technology of cracking open shale rocks with a high-pressure mixture of water, sand and chemicals to unlock trapped natural gas deposits, Mitchell was not known as your typical Texas oil man. Swept up in the budding environmentalism of the 1960s, he regaled family with ideas gleamed from books such as Buckminster Fuller’s “Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth,” which warned the earth had finite resources. which, if not properly maintained, would mean its end.

Mitchell then took his budding oil fortune and developed 27,000 acres of timberland north of Houston into a nature-centric model community complete with wildlife preserves, a concert pavilion and walking trails - naming it The Woodlands.

Of fracking, which netted him $3.1 billion when he sold his company in 2001 to the Oklahoma exploration and production firm Devon Energy, he was not shy about expressing his concerns.

“Mostly, it’s the loud voices at the extremes who are dominating the debate: those who want either no fracking or no additional regulation of it,” Mitchell wrote in an op-ed with then New York mayor Michael Bloomberg in 2012. “As usual, the voices in the sensible center are getting drowned out — with serious repercussions for our country’s future.”

His descendants now are carrying that mantle. With a $300 million in assets, the Mitchell foundation is funding everything from a campaign to grow rooftop solar systems in Texas to a gala honoring the longtime fracking critic Tom “Smitty” Smith, the former director of the activist group Public Citizen Texas.

At an event in Washington last month, the Aspen Institute released a report sponsored by the Mitchell Foundation and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, warning that “while many of the documented impacts associated with oil and gas development have been manageable to date, research is still thin, and effective governance practices have not been sufficiently baked into practice on a broad scale.”

“They’re one of the biggest environmental funders in the state, funding a lot of really important work,” said Luke Metzger, executive director of the non-profit Environment Texas. “Though I should disclose we’re a recipient of their grant money.”

Nowhere is the foundation’s work bringing them into greater conflict with the oil and gas industry than West Texas, where the drilling boom is spreading beyond the well-established oil towns Midland and Odessa.

Worried about the intrusion of rigs, supply trucks and worker camps into the countries surrounding Big Bend National Park, the Mitchell Foundation launched the Respect Big Bend Coalition earlier this year. The aim is to bring together land owners, environmental groups and even oil companies to minimize the impact on an iconic desert landscape.

Middle ground

“Big Bend is one of the most bio diverse regions in western hemisphere,” said Hastings, the foundation’s sustainability director. “Yes, there’s no drilling [near the park] right now. People ask why are you spending your time preparing. All you have to do is drive down the street to the Eagle Ford and see what’s going to happen. If you go in after the fact, it’s too late.”

More than 40 years after its founding, the Mitchell Foundation has developed a reputation for its ability to work with the oil industry in ways that other environmentalists cannot. When the foundation went looking for partners earlier this year for a project at Rice University to speed the development of carbon capture technology, it succeeded bring together interests as diverse as Occidental Petroleum, Dow Chemical and the Environmental Defense Fund.

Joe Kiesecker, a scientist with The Nature Conservancy, a national conservation group whose work in West Texas is funded by the Mitchell Foundation, said the affiliation with the foundation helped his work with oil companies including BP and Royal Dutch Shell in developing climate change policy.

“If I were to knock on a door with energy regulatory folks or developers,” Kiesecker said, “I might knock for a lot longer if I’m just the Nature Conservancy.”

In part, that’s a product of the foundation’s namesake. In addition, the foundation doesn’t argue against fracking altogether, maintaining that it benefits the U.S. economy and simply needs to be done more responsibly.

But as climate scientists’ warnings of environmental catastrophe grow increasingly dire, the Mitchell family’s outlook is changing, too. Lorenz, Mitchell’s 40-year-old granddaughter who previously ran a nonprofit helping farmers in Mexico grow organic crops, said she believed the world would eventually need to move away from natural gas. She admits it was not something her grandfather said in his lifetime, explaining the consequences of climate change were not as clear while he was still active in the foundation.

“This is not the case where we feel bad how the money was made,”she said. “Our values, using science to inform everything we do, is a direct, direct piece of the legacy coming from him.”
