The intensity of the rainfall also led to flash flooding on roads in and out of town and Routes 42 and 136 became waterways and very unsafe for travel.One of the more unique water rescues that had to be performed occurred when the Manchester Life Squad spotted a pony and a donkey trapped by high water behind an electric fence. The alert squad members busted through the fence and allowed the two animals to make their way to safety.In Bentonville, a driver barely escaped severe injuries when the red Nissan she was driving was met by a falling black walnut tree that literally split her vehicle in half.All of the Manchester emergency squads were kept hopping, jumping back and forth between different emergencies, including the normal medical calls that are part of their day-to-day operations and performing their duties in some very tight and dangerous situations.According to Lonnie Bilyeu, assistant chief of the Manchester Fire Department, most of the village’s power is back on as of Thursday morning.

More from Horse Sport:Christilot Boylen Retires From Team SportAfter an exemplary career as one of Canada’s top Dressage riders, seven-time Olympian Christilot Boylen has announced her retirement from team competition.2020 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair CancelledFor only the second time in its history, The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair has been cancelled but plans are being made for some virtual competitions.Royal Agricultural Winter Fair Statement on 2020 EventAs the Province of Ontario starts to reopen, The Royal’s Board and staff will adhere to all recommendations put forward by government and health officials.Government Financial Assistance for Ontario FarmersOntario Equestrian has recently released this update of several financial assistance packages available, including those for farm business. Ottawa, ON – After presenting the successful Kubota Cup Canadian Show Jumping Series for the past 4 years, Kubota Canada has officially stepped down as Title Sponsor upon conclusion of its contract.“Kubota Canada contracted for three years as the Title Sponsor of this national show jumping series and the industry was very fortunate to get a one year extension in 2008.  But all contracts come to an end and both sponsor and the management group are happy to move forward to the next step on such a successful note.  The Kubota name and brand has become synonymous with high performance in most stables in Canada through the introduction of our sponsorship platform,” stated Sandra Fraser, Executive Director of the Kubota Cup Canadian Show Jumping Series.  “A unique relationship was established between show jumping and this founding sponsor and from that great experience Kubota’s regional support will be continued in various equine programs.  Through the Kubota network of over 150 national dealers, many businesses participate in supporting all levels of equestrian activity such as hunter, jumper, 4-H clubs, Barrel Racing, Chuck Wagon Racing, draft horse competitions and Pony Club.”The Kubota Cup Canadian Show Jumping Series was the first phase of an innovative program where member events in key market regions coast to coast, hosted Kubota Cup Grand Prix qualifiers.  Building sport and athlete incentive programs, along with positioning the Kubota brand as the principal at each of the participating events, contributed to this sponsor earning exceptional return on their marketing dollar and building a loyal following.  The Series took place over eight months, eight cities, comprising the eastern and western Canadian regions; it rounded up the season with a National Final in November.  With an average of 185 competitors participating, and 533,000 spectators visiting annually, the Kubota Cup Canadian Show Jumping Series contributed an estimated $81 million dollars into the Canadian economy each year. “This sponsorship model netted Kubota Canada substantial sales results from their involvement and their decision not to renew at this time was a difficult one to make,” commented Fraser.  “The decision came down to timing and their need to focus towards other industries and markets necessary for the growth of the company as the leading distributor of compact diesel tractors and construction equipment in Canada. “John Gilliland Kubota Canada’s National Marketing Manager added “We will truly miss the Kubota Cup Series as we have met so many great people across Canada.  We also witnessed the loyalty of this group of equestrian athletes, owners and fans through increases in sales to equine related end-users across Canada.  As we move on in our marketing mix we are introducing the Kubota Equine Discount (KED) that will provide significant discounts on Kubota equipment to members of provincial equine federations, associations and councils!”“As founder of the Kubota Cup Series I am looking towards the future with enthusiasm,” said Mrs. Fraser.  “The sport of Show Jumping is a perfect vehicle for sponsorship marketing, and with our proven track record in the Kubota Cup Series, I am excited for the future.  The Kubota Cup Series was developed under the black cloud of the Canadian Sponsorship Scandal and we succeeded in the face of a negative business climate.  Today we are facing an attitude of negativity towards the present economy.   We are thrilled to launch our new program emerging from the Kubota Cup Series, and information on the National Equestrian Grand Prix Tour™ will be released soon.  I am confident that our business model with its proven performance record offers exceptional value, and with its demonstrated return on marketing investment, as reported by corporate sponsors such as Kubota, we will once again create a winning partnership in show jumping.”last_img read more

Preparing for euro-day

first_imgA survey by niche Belgian corporate bank Artesia Bank, formerly Banque Paribas Belgique, at the end of last year suggested a relatively quick switch by companies.Two thirds of the large firms it surveyed said they would open euro accounts before the end of 1999, with most hoping to use it for all non-Belgian payments and receipts. Half of those questioned even envisaged using the euro for domestic payments.Ironically, given all this, two thirds said they would still want their banks to detail all transactions in the local currency and euro. That option is being offered by all banks, whatever their niche or nationality.One comforting message from Artesia’s multinational, multi-currency customers is that there is a marked reluctance to concentrate all their banking activities in one country.In theory, concentration should be one of the logical consequences of the single currency and it has been one of the biggest factors fuelling the recent wave of big bank mergers and take-overs. However, Artesia found only 38% of companies questioned expected to restrict their accounting to one country.Retail and specialist banks have already begun to reorientate and diversify their currency operations to make up for the disappearance of their former core business. Belgian retail bank Generale Bank has been preparing for the disappearance of 65% of its exchange business, which is currently in the currencies of its neighbouring countries.East European and Asian markets have been among the favourite options for diversification. However, the recent currency turmoil in Asia has made this a high-risk business. In some cases banks, such as Belgium’s Kredietbank, have gone one step further than their rivals and bought into their Czech and Polish counterparts.Despite this diversification, a large amount of business will still be focused on trading the euro against the dollar and yen. Most banks agree that the euro will become the world’s second-largest reserve currency after the dollar.With so many banks and traders concentrating on the euro, there are concerns that dealers will follow the market trend like sheep and exacerbate volatility in the new currency, especially as it strives to establish its credibility.A weak currency with low interest rates would be good for economic growth, but would encourage the flight of footloose capital to the banks of non-euro countries such as Switzerland and the UK. In or out, no European bank will be immune to the euro’s success or failure. One of the biggest questions for banks, and the rest of the financial services sector, is how fast clients will channel all their transactions into the euro. Banks and other financial institutions must offer a charge-free change-over between old and new currencies.A fast move into the euro would create a snowball effect as companies paying and demanding payment in the currency forced others to follow suit. The alternative scenario, in which companies stick with the francs, lire and deutschemarks they know, would obviously have a braking effect on the euro.Banks would prefer a relatively fast change-over. A big bang launch of the euro rather than the long, three-year transition period was the option the financial community wanted, since the latter burdened them with running parallel accounts for a long period.last_img read more

Panelists debate corporate taxation

first_imgThree Notre Dame professors debated the limits of corporations’ responsibility to pay taxes Wednesday night in the Jordan Auditorium of the Mendoza College of Business in a panel discussion titled, “Greed and Taxes in Business,” the third part of the Berges Lecture Series on Ethics. Professor Joseph Holt, Professor Brian Levey, and Professor Kenneth Milani, all faculty of the Mendoza College of Business, examined the issue from different perspectives.  Levey, a business law professor, spoke first from a largely legal perspective and argued that corporations should pay as little taxes as they can. “It is the duty of a director of a corporation to promote value of the corporation and, to do so, pay as low taxes required,” Levey said. “If I were still in practice, I would still not advise my client to pay more in taxes than they are legally required.”  Deficits are the fault of the government, Levey said, citing that the 2011 tax code was 72,530 pages and that America’s inordinately high tax rate is 35 percent compared to the world average of 14 percent. Milani called upon his experience as an accountant to describe the tax situation for businesses.  “Taxes are [the] third or fourth largest expenditure of business after wages, salaries, materials and advertising,” Milani said. “But here’s the rest of the story … they are telling you half-truths … It is true that the corporate tax rate is 35 percent but no country hands out credits like we do … The key is effective tax rate, which is 12 percent. “And it makes my blood boil when [people representing corporations] go on talk radio and throw that number a lot.” Holt addressed corporations’ taxes from a moral standpoint.  “Look to the principle maximum … Society runs off of business and business runs off of society and business cannot succeed where society is failing,” he said. “… There is a difference from not being in trouble and being exemplary.” The next lecture in the series will take place Sept. 30. The topic of the next lecture will be “Long Term Principles in a Short Term World,” given by John Donovan, senior executive vice president of AT&T Technology and Network Operations.last_img read more

Gophers look to keep momentum rolling in final home meets

first_imgReiter is set on it not happening again, and his teammates and coaches have taken notice.“I know he’s got a little more motivation this time,” Kuhlman said. “I know he wants to show him that last year, beating him ” it’s not going to happen again. And it’s just kind of a drive inside him that makes a difference. You’ll see coming through the week he’ll be pushing a lot harder.”Russell said, “It will be easy for him to get fired up for that match.”Russell also said Travis Lang and Kuhlman likely are Minnesota’s starters for the rest of the season at 125 and 197, respectively.He said finally having all the starters set will with help the team’s continuity.“As of right now they’re the guys,” Russell said. “It’s getting so late in the season it would be hard to change. Obviously you don’t want to mess with a guy’s psyche this late in the year. Hopefully it’s settled. If it’s not settled already, hopefully it’s settled soon.”And that’s exactly what Minnesota is looking for out of its final home weekend ” continuity, momentum and getting everything in order in a friendly environment for that push to the finish.If you ask the Gophers, they don’t envision it happening any other way.“I don’t see us facing a letdown,” Lang said. “I just think we’re wrestling too well to have that get in the way. And as long as we keep going at guys and keep going at the pace we have been the last couple months, I see us doing very well.” Gophers look to keep momentum rolling in final home meets David McCoyFebruary 3, 2006Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintAt 16-0, Minnesota is off to its best start since going 19-0 in duals in 2001-2002.It’s been much longer since Minnesota’s Sunday opponent, Indiana, has beaten the Gophers in Minneapolis.In fact, the last time the Hoosiers beat the Gophers in Minneapolis was more than 35 years ago.But the Hoosiers also are the best they’ve been in years. Ranked 13th, Indiana (11-2, 2-2 Big Ten) will try to do what it hasn’t done since Jan. 20, 1968, and all Minnesota wants out of the weekend is a little more momentum.“It’ll help us carry over,” 197-pounder Mitch Kuhlman said. “It’s very good momentum that we’ll need. We’ve got two big duals in the next two weeks, and we’ve just got to build on it.”With the next two Sundays featuring tough duals against No. 2 Oklahoma State on Feb. 12 and No. 4 Michigan on Feb. 17, Minnesota is looking to gain a helpful push in its final two home duals of the season ” at 7 tonight against No. 24 Wisconsin and at 2 p.m. Sunday with Indiana, both at the Sports Pavilion.“It’s really for momentum,” assistant coach Joe Russell said. “We’re on a roll right now and we need to keep it going, sending positive statements for us and letting the rest of the country know that we’re going to be a tough team to wrestle. We definitely want to keep sending those statements.”What the Gophers don’t want to keep doing is what they did the past two years against the Badgers ” lose.Wisconsin won 18-17 largely on the strength of then-12th ranked Tom Clum’s 6-3 upset of then-fourth ranked Mack Reiter at 133 pounds.Out of all his successes, Reiter never has beaten Clum, losing to him twice ” in last year’s duals and in the third place match at NCAAs ” though ranked higher than Clum both times.last_img read more
