Bill Walker (at podium) and Dean Williams (right), January 28, 2016. Williams was appointed commissioner of the Department of Corrections. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)The Alaska Department of Corrections Commissioner will be in Haines next week.  Dean Williams is traveling to far-flung corners of the state in preparation for more budget cuts. He is visiting all 15 towns that are part of the DOC Community Jails Program.The Community Jails Program supports towns from Haines to Dillingham to Kotzebue. Each one has a jail facility that is funded by DOC. The funding ranges from about a million dollars for the North Slope Borough to about $100,000 for Cordova. Haines received about $216,000 this fiscal year.That’s down from a couple years ago. In FY 2016, Haines lost more than $170,000 in Community Jails support. The local police department is so reliant on that funding that the cut prompted the borough to freeze hiring for a fifth police officer position. Police Chief Heath Scott says the money helps keep the department’s four officers and five dispatchers employed.“We get right now a fair chunk of money from DOC to cover our dispatchers,” Scott said. “They act as DOC employees and dispatchers in our budget.”Scott worries that the in-person visit from Commissioner Williams is a signal of more reductions to come.“We don’t think he’s coming here to give us good news,” Scott said.DOC Spokesman Corey Allen-Young explains why Williams is visiting the towns involved in the Community Jails Program:“Because of the cuts, you know we have to cut even further. So we’re just looking at options,” Allen-Young said. “Nothing is really set in stone but in order to fully get an understanding and make a decision that’s wise and efficient and maintains safety you have to go to these places and see what’s being done in these communities.”Allen-Young says ‘everything is on the table’ when it comes to the next round of budget cuts. He says the department isn’t just looking at the rural jails, but its major facilities. For example, the Palmer Correctional Center was recently shut down.Allen-Young says the commissioner will also talk to community leaders about changes on the way from SB 91. The criminal justice reform bill passed the state legislature earlier this year.SB 91 requires DOC to establish a pretrial services program to work with defendants awaiting resolution of their cases. The goal is to reduce the number of people held in prison for non-violent crimes.“They’re trying to limit the amount of people that are actually in the correctional system,” Allen-Young said. “So because of that, you’ll be put into pretrial services. I’m being very generic here because it’s still being worked out. But as part of that, that would have to fall somewhat on the community working the Department of Corrections moving forward to make sure the criminal justice process is followed. ”Allen-Young says the commissioner wants to talk with local leaders about how SB 91 will impact their communities. The pretrial services program is required to be in place by the beginning of 2018.Commissioner Williams will be in Haines on Tuesday, Nov. 1. Before that, he was making the rounds to Craig, Ketchikan, Petersburg and Cordova.Share this story:last_img read more

U.S.-led coalition shoots down Syrian military jet west of Raqqa, Pentagon says

first_imgFederal Government | Military | Nation & World | NPR News | PoliticsU.S.-led coalition shoots down Syrian military jet west of Raqqa, Pentagon saysJune 18, 2017 by Emma Bowman, NPR News Share:The U.S. military says it shot down a Syrian Air Force jet that dropped bombs near U.S.-backed forces in the fight against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria.According to a statement from the Pentagon, pro-Syrian regime forces attacked a Syrian Democratic Forces-controlled town West of Raqqa, the de facto ISIS capital the rebel fighters were trying to take back. The bombings wounded “a number of SDF fighters and driving the SDF from the town.”Two hours later, the U.S. Military said it shot down the Syrian warplane, acting “in collective self-defense of Coalition partnered forces.”Following the pro-Syrian forces attack, the coalition called its Russian counterparts “to de-escalate the situation and stop the firing,” according to the statement.“The Coalition’s mission is to defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria,” the Pentagon added. “The coalition does not seek to fight Syrian regime, Russian or pro-regime forces partnered with them, but will not hesitate to defend coalition or partner forces from any threat. ”But Sunday’s event signals the mounting conflict in the region, as the U.S. tries to defeat the Islamic State in the eastern part of the country, as NPR’s Tom Bowman reports:“I don’t recall this before, where you have U.S. forces shooting down a Syrian aircraft. But what we are seeing is more pro-Syrian regime forces moving into areas where you have American advisors, where you have Syrian rebels.They are moving increasingly east, we have already seen a couple of skirmishes between US forces and Shi’a militias backed by Iran south of here. On a couple of occasions, the U.S. had to use drones and warplanes to attack these Shi’a militias to attack an American training area for Syrian rebels.Copyright 2017 NPR.

WineAmerica and ASCAP Partner to Introduce New Music License for Wineries

first_imgAdvertisementWASHINGTON, DC, (June 15, 2017)— WineAmerica, the national organization of American wineries, and ASCAP, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, are working together to simplify music licensing compliance for the American wine industry with the introduction of a unique music license created specifically for wineries.The wine industry is unique: many wineries and vineyards are all-in-one agriculture, manufacturing, and retail establishments. ASCAP undertook a reevaluation of their winery license and crafted a new license that better serves the wine industry’s needs while ensuring compensation for its music creators. WineAmerica will work closely with ASCAP to administer the license to its member businesses and will provide an additional 10% discount to WineAmerica members.ASCAP is a membership association that operates on a non-profit basis and represents more than 600,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers. ASCAP’s mission is to license the public performances of their songs, collect those license fees, and ensure that songwriters are reasonably compensated for their work, a principle which WineAmerica fully supports. Under copyright law, when a venue such as a winery, restaurant or other establishment plays recorded, or offers live performances of, copyrighted music, it must purchase a license in order for the songwriter to be paid.“WineAmerica has taken the leadership role on this issue, thanks to the diligent efforts of Vice President Tara Good,” said WineAmerica President Jim Trezise. “The new winery-specific license is simple and affordable, and WineAmerica members save even more.”“A large number of wineries sincerely want to offer live music as part of their visitor experience, but the terms of the license did not meet their needs,” said Good. “We applaud ASCAP for recognizing this and for modifying their license so that it works for our establishments. We’re looking forward to collaborating with ASCAP to ensure that visitors can continue to enjoy music as much as they do the wines during their winery visit.”“Music is more than just an art form for music creators – it’s their livelihood. It’s how they put food on the table and send their kids to school,” said Vincent Candilora, ASCAP EVP of Licensing. “WineAmerica recognizes the importance of paying music creators to use their music, and understands that it is both the lawful and right thing to do. We’re proud to work together with WineAmerica to develop a solution that works for wineries and for our music creators.”The new winery license:Lowers the square footage basis for determining license fees for smaller wineries. Wineries up to 3,750 square feet will pay the lowest fees.Removes the requirement to purchase separate licenses for different venues on a winery’s property (e.g., tasting room versus restaurant);Separates the live music and recorded music options, allowing the winery to choose just one or both;Offers a seasonal discount range;Provides a special reduced price for wineries under 5,000 gallons a year that host 6 or fewer performances per year.In addition to the savings that wineries will gain from the new license, WineAmerica members are eligible to receive an additional 10% reduction on their licensing costs. WineAmerica is also available to help wineries assess whether licensing music is right for their business needs and to help shepherd them through the process. To learn more visit www.wineamerica.org/music or contact Tara Good at [email protected] For additional questions ASCAP has a toll-free number for business owners to ask questions or concerns: 1-800-505-4052 (option 4).About WineAmericaWineAmerica is the national voice of the American wine industry. Based in Washington, D.C., WineAmerica represents wineries in 41 states and leads a coalition of state and regional wine and grape associations. As an industry leader, WineAmerica encourages the dynamic growth and development of American wineries and winegrowing through the advancement and advocacy of sound public policy.About ASCAPThe American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) is a professional membership organization of songwriters, composers and music publishers of every kind of music. ASCAP’s mission is to license and promote the music of its members and foreign affiliates, obtain fair compensation for the public performance of their works and to distribute the royalties that it collects based upon those performances. ASCAP members write the world’s best-loved music and ASCAP has pioneered the efficient licensing of that music to hundreds of thousands of enterprises who use it to add value to their business – from bars, restaurants and retail, to radio, TV and cable, to Internet, mobile services and more. The ASCAP license offers an efficient solution for businesses to legally perform ASCAP music while respecting the right of songwriters and composers to be paid fairly.
