Arguments on a dismissal motion would be 2 p.m. July 12 in Rochester.

• Serious health concerns and reduced life expectancy.

The claim against the city and county was filed in State Supreme Court for Ontario County in Canandaigua.

They are negligence and breach of special duty, inverse condemnation of their property, public and private nuisance, negligent infliction of emotional distress, deprivation of procedural due process, negligent concealment, negligent misrepresentation and fraud.

The amended notice lists eight causes of action.

• Mental anguish of constant worry over wondering about suffering adverse effects of exposure.

These numbers from WhoScored.com show just how creative the winger has been over the past couple of Premier League seasons:

Sport’s Rik Sharma believes the formation recently utilised by the manager doesn’t accommodate natural full-backs: 

At Barcelona, he would find it difficult to muscle into the front three ahead of Messi, Neymar or Luis Suarez. But the chance to move to a juggernaut of a club like the Spanish champions would surely appeal to the 26-year-old.

Even so, Alba’s performance level hasn’t been consistent over the past couple of seasons. While he’s still a scintillating player with the ball at his feet, his decision-making in the final third has been erratic, while his defensive positioning has also been poor at times.

Percy added that Mahrez is aware of the interest from the Catalan giants and has previously expressed his admiration for Barcelona and Lionel Messi in particular.

Another product of the endeavor will be a website, which they will use to share low-budget and do-it-yourself methods with educators, researchers, suppliers and neighbors. They hope it helps Detroiters learn more about how to reduce utility costs and aid in the global fight against climate change, while making sustainable housing more accessible for everyone.

That’s where our Dutch trio comes in: They’re schooled in the recent innovations that help reduce energy consumption and lower household utility bills. But they also are all too aware that these advances are beyond the financial reach of are often so expensive that only the well-to-do can afford them.

They were inspired by the way the city’s residents contended with faulty infrastructure, unresponsive government, disinvested neighborhoods, emergency management, water shutoffs, and tax foreclosures. In fact, it roused them to action: They’re taking a year off from education to put some of their ideas into practice — and doing some good for Detroiters in the process.

Joining forces with local gro

Detroit’s large, drafty, old houses, almost always heated with gas furnaces, were built for increasingly well-to-do workers during a time of cheap energy. As the city’s residents have become poorer and as energy becomes more expensive, heating costs eat up the meager monthly budgets of an increasing number of Detroiters.

Flake’s Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery Plan Act would delist the Mexican wolf from the ESA based on having reached a population of 100, an interim goal set in 1982 (an updated recovery plan was developed by the Mexican wolf recovery planning team in 2005 recommending 750 Mexican wolves as a viable, self-sustaining population goal for successful recovery). The ESA saved the Mexican gray wolf from extinction as an “experimental, non-essential” subspecies of the gray wolf, but wildlife advocates have clamored for the federal Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to change the classification to “essential, endangered.”

Flake’s Judicial Administration and Improvement Act intends to outflank environmental judicial review of delisting the Mexican gray wolf by creating a new Twelfth Circuit Court of Appeals. In a new Twelfth Circuit, Arizona would join Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Nevada and Washington where Rocky Mountain gray wolves lost ESA protections in 2011 and 2012. In Idaho and Montana, 545 wolves were killed during the 2011-12 hunting season and on March 6, 2017, gray wolves in Wyoming were delisted for a second time, inviting another open season on gray wolves.

Dennis DuVall is a Prescott resident and Veteran For Peace.

Flake’s anti-wolf bill is the culmination of state and congressional assaults to shred the Endangered Species Act (ESA), emasculate wolf science, manipulate the courts, and hand the Mexican wolf recovery plan over to the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AGFD).

Will the Mexican wolf survive? Not likely if Sen. Jeff Flake and Arizona ranchers have their way (“Moving goal for Mexican gray wolf,” Courier, Feb. 25).

Wolf activists want to expand Lobo’s recovery habitat to north of the Grand Canyon, end the practice of capturing and relocating wolves, eliminate invisible boundaries to wolf movement, end lethal removals, and supplement the wild Mexican wolf population with 300 captive-bred wolves to increase the number of packs and breeding pairs.

In spite of AFGD’s political management, FWS and AGFD can point to success in bringing Lobo back. AGFD is already the lead agency in the critical day-to-day work of improving the genetic health of a growing Mexican wolf population (113 wolves in 21 packs in 2016) and aiding the survival of wild-born wolf pups (50 in 2016, twice the number as the year before). Unfortunately Sen. Flake’s Mexican Wolf Recovery Plan Act will remove ESA protections and end federal oversight, setting back Mexican wolf recovery efforts of the past 19 years.

“The number of graduates have increased tremendously,” says Hainnu.

The District Education Authority has also been working to improve attendance. Quluaq school has been throwing monthly and yearly celebrations for students who maintain good attendance, with certificates and prizes.

There was one particular lunch when Hainnu says they had “so much fun” that she forgot to actually mention to the students to come back to school.

“I think the students are back because they are more informed of what to expect.” – Rebecca Hainnu

“We’ve had wonderful experiences during these lunches,” says Hainnu.

“But the next day, they were in registering. So they brought themselves back…I think they convinced each other. We did very little… They wanted to finish school.”

There are currently 337 students registered from kindergarten to Grade 12, “and we had four new additions to our school in the past two weeks,” says Hainnu.

7. GED tests are now completed on computers so some basic computer instruction has been added to the curriculum, making it more difficult for some students to complete in a timely manner.

2. Ann Chambers is our area-wide, full-time director working out of Grand Island. In Columbus, we partner with Mary Wiegand of PVLA as a local coordinator. I want to thank them both for providing me statistics for this article, including this one: Across our service area, 164 volunteers worked with students for a total of 4,954.5 hours, these numbers include 70 local volunteers logging over 2,000 hours.

Much has been shared in the news this past month about the excitement of the new STEM Academy and the opportunities for high school students to get a start on college courses and workforce careers early. Conversely, I thought it important to also share the vital pre-college work CCC does with more mature students (18 years old and older) through Adult Education (AE) and our local partner, Platte Valley Literacy Association (PVLA).

5. Students in our English as a second language classes speak over 30 languages. Teachers are obviously not fluent in all of these, so they utilize simple English, visual aids, technology tools and bilingual classmates to help interpret. In Columbus, St. Edward and Schuyler we worked with 584 students in 2015-16.

3. CCC’s AE program consistently ranks among the highest achievers in meeting Nebraska Department of Education standards. Last year we achieved a 96 percent ranking in those standards.

Through established corporate, educational, nonprofit and governmental partners, the great work continues with helping the adults and immigrants in our communities better themselves for their employers, families and themselves. We are proud of being part of the team addressing these literacy and educational needs for adults and thankful for the many part-time employees and volunteers who make it happen.

What is Neymar’s net worth & salary?

The talented playmaker has been linked with several clubs over recent months, with his days at Santiago Bernabeu considered to be numbered.

Can Bellerin be the next Dani Alves?

Andres Iniesta and Denis Suarez are among those at Camp Nou to come out in support of such a move being made, with Barca always in the market for added creativity.

It is, however, a potential switch between La Liga’s fiercest rivals which is generating the most interest at present.

Isco, though, has sought to curb the rumours by suggesting that there is little substance to them.

A lack of regular starts in the Spanish capital, along with a contract that has less than 18 months left to run, has intensified the gossip surrounding the 24-year-old.

Day ordered Mead have no contact with the victim and scheduled a non-evidentiary motions hearing for both files for 10 a.m., on April 3 at the Butte County Courthouse in Belle Fourche.

“In addition to that, it is my understanding and the state believes it would have evidence to show the court that there was an acknowledgement between the two parties with respect to a pact to kill themselves together at the same time in different locations,” Wendt said. “The victim has been hospitalized due to what is going on around her and due to the continued involvement with the defendant.”

First-degree rape is a Class C felony, punishable by life imprisonment in the state penitentiary. Under this class of felony, there is a mandatory minimum requirement of 15 years in the state penitentiary. Additionally, a $50,000 fine may be imposed. If convicted, Mead, who pleaded not guilty on both counts, would be required to comply by the South Dakota sexual offender registry laws.

Mead was released on $25,000 bond following the first indictment in November, 2016, and after the second indictment was filed March 14, was rearrested and has been incarcerated since that time.

BELLE FOURCHE — A Butte County grand jury indicted a Belle Fourche man on two counts of rape in the first degree of a person who is less than 13 years of age. According to court documents filed Nov. 8, 2016, on Aug. 18, 2016, David Mead, 18, accomplished an act of sexual penetration with a 12-year-old female. Additional court documents filed on March 14 indicate Mead was again indicted for rape in the first degree of the same 12-year-old female between Sept. 17 and Nov. 10, 2016, after Mead turned 19.

Matt Kinney, Mead’s attorney, indicated during his Thursday arraignment on the second count, that Mead’s family borrowed money from their church to pay for the initial bond.

“This is for a feasibility study to explore other options to treat sewage,” Councilor Gary Labrie said. “It is only a study. We are not shutting down the treatment plant and cutting jobs.”

Having Springfield treat the sewage may be a less expensive and better option than upgrading Chicopee’s treatment plant, he said.

The City Council this week voted 13-0 to approve spending up to $75,000 on the study, as recommended by Mayor Richard J. Kos.

Already the city has spent more than $153 million to separate sewer mains from storm pipes to meet federal Environmental Protection Agency mandates that it stop dumping untreated sewage into the Chicopee and Connecticut rivers. Because all pipes in the city once carried both sewage and storm water, during heavy rains they get overwhelmed and back up into residents’ homes as well as dumping into the rivers.

“Springfield has the economy of a much larger facility and may be able to treat Chicopee wastewater at a lower cost per gallon. Springfield is presently in the process of designing a new sewage pumping facility at the York Street location and this may be the prime location for a river crossing for the Chicopee sewage,” Raschilla wrote.

City Councilors said they felt it is worth the money to investigate a new way of handling the city’s waste.

The entire cost of the feasibility study is about $267,460 and Springfield has committed to fund more than half, or $145,460, of the cost. Later in the study, the Chicopee Board of Sewer Commissioners will return to request more funding to meet its $122,000 share, James Raschilla, chairman of the Board of Sewer Commissioners, said in a letter to the City Council.

The proposal would be separate from that ongoing project.

Also see IRS Publication 970 Tax Benefits for Education. And for more reasons to amend your return, see The 23 Most-Overlooked Tax Deductions.

AYes. You generally have until three years after the deadline for filing your original federal tax return to file an amended return if you missed a tax break or need to make other changes. You’ll need to submit a separate Form 1040X for each year you’re amending. Enter the year you’re amending, note the changes you are making, and attach any tax forms that are affected by the change. (In your case, Form 8863 for the American Opportunity Credit; see the link there to the Form 8863 revisions page for the previous years’ forms.)

The American Opportunity Credit is worth up to $2,500 per student for each of the first four years of college. If you missed taking the credit, you may still be able to claim it by filing an amended return.

QWhen I was preparing my taxes this year, I realized that I could have qualified to claim the American Opportunity Credit for my daughter’s tuition since she started college (she’s a senior now). Can I file an amended return to claim the credit, and how many years back can it go?

It can take the IRS up to 16 weeks to process the amended federal return. You can check its status starting three weeks after you file using the Where’s My Amended Return? Tool.
