West Valley School ‘Literally Out of Space’

first_imgWhen Mark Wilson began teaching third grade at West Valley in 1987, there were fewer than 200 students in the small rural school on the outskirts of Kalispell.Twenty-six years later, the enrollment has ballooned to almost 600 students in kindergarten through eighth grade and the school is now situated in the fastest growing section of the Flathead Valley. At the corner of Farm to Market Road and West Reserve Drive, West Valley School is in the heart of the bustling district just west of Glacier High School and a swath of expanding subdivisions. It’s also in the vicinity of the emergent U.S. 93 Alternate Route and down the road from the northern commercial district, which welcomes a new Cabela’s Outpost store in early November, with more businesses sure to follow.“We’ve gone from being a little country school to a lot bigger school,” Wilson said. “It still feels like a country school in many ways, but our population has really changed.”In response to the skyrocketing enrollment that’s expected to continue, the school district is floating a $6.8 million bond proposal to West Valley residents next month.Mail-in ballots are being sent out Oct. 1 and are due back Oct. 22.If successful, the bond would fund the development of additional classrooms, an auxiliary gym and expansion of the library, among other improvements within the 51-year-old facility.“We’re literally out of space,” said Superintendent Cal Ketchum. “We’ve got closets that are now classrooms, storage areas that are classrooms. We’ve got classrooms in basements. We manage to do a good job but it’s not the best learning environment for students.”Enrollment has risen 55 percent in the last 11 years and has averaged 5 percent growth each year, Ketchum said. This year’s enrollment is 549 students, which is 100 over the facility’s total square-foot capacity, he said. A demographic study that was compiled for the district estimated that continued growth in the area could lead to another 200 to 300 students in the next decade.“They’ve done a good job over the years making it work but it’s time now to look at the future,” Ketchum said.A town hall meeting is being held at the school on Sept. 25 at 7 p.m. School administrators will walk members of the public through the building and show the current situation and explain why the bond is being proposed.West Valley has undergone a few upgrades to its original facility since it opened in 1962 with an enrollment of 57 students. The last expansion occurred in 2000. The school proposed a $3.5 million bond in 2010 to address overcrowding issues, but voters rejected the request; 678 were opposed and 422 voted in favor.The latest proposal would extend over a 20-year term with a 4.5 percent interest rate. Homeowners in the school district whose property has a phase-in value of $100,000 would pay an estimated $81 annually in taxes for the new bond, according to an impact analysis compiled by D.A. Davidson and Co.Next year is the final year of the previous bond’s term. The bond was refinanced in 2010 to a five-year term because of low interest rates. Residents who have been paying the previous bond amount would see a net increase of roughly $47 under the new bond, according to D.A. Davidson. A home valued at $200,000 would see an annual tax of roughly $163, a net increase of $95.Cindy Foley, the school district clerk, pointed out that residents would still be paying less in taxes than in 2010 because the area has seen considerable commercial and residential growth, expanding the tax rolls and lowering individual amounts. In 2010, the average $220,000 home led to roughly $1,245 in taxes to the school. That rate has dropped $278 since then and the net tax increase of the new bond would equal $207, still less than the overall taxes in 2010, Foley said.Residents can calculate the estimated tax impact from a new school bond by visiting Flathead County’s website, www.flathead.mt.gov.Despite the failure of the last bond, school administrators say the overcrowding problem has only worsened.A steering committee of staff and community members organized last spring and began working with CTA Architects Engineers for a solution. Public meetings were held regularly to explain the troubling situation and inform residents why upgrades are needed.The primary goal is to build a new section for a middle school. The addition would add about 30,000 square feet to the school, which currently sits at roughly 60,000 square feet. The new wing would house sixth through eighth grade and make old space available to younger elementary classes. This could also mean making room for a new school kitchen in one of the older areas.“I’ve always prided ourselves in having smaller classroom number and making that a priority,” Wilson said. “But when you have no more space you can’t make that a priority because you can only do so much. (The school upgrades) would be tremendous.”To support West Valley School’s upgrades, administrators are accepting donations at the school or by mail to Community Bond Committee, c/o Nancy Wendt, 940 Clark Dr., Kalispell, MT, 59901.

Beyond CMMI and other process models for software industry: Needs a new rating method

first_imgDel-Q: Delivery Quality Rating:  a  new rating methodology  for the Software industryThe current need  is that the software industry    requires a new rating method that is more reliable yet economical in cost and duration and  also increases the confidence among the clients who are facing challenges  to make a decision on selection of a supplier /vendor of software servicesThe reasons are many, for instance, recently I had a meeting with a Quality Head of a software unit of a big organization, and during the casual discussion about the implementation of a process model he told me the following points:1.      The leadership was of the view that the Quality Head should give assurance of reduction of defects in all the deliverables with accurate numbers as a result of the implementation of CMMI® ML5 practices2.      As the Quality Head was not in a position to assure that, they dropped the idea of going for CMMI® ML5 and they simply were satisfied with the CMMI® ML3Though the process models such as CMMI® / ISO 9001® and others are really improving the process maturity in the organizations especially, software companies, yet these models are not able to give an accurate and precise metrics that will instil confidence among the customers. For example, no one can promise the quality of products/components in terms of the number of defects or other relevant metrics based on maturity levels. Can we say all CMMI® ML 3 organizations will have x number of defects, whereas CMMI® ML 5 organizations will have an x-n number of defects? You may have noticed the following limitations of these models:1.      Customers are not able to assess the capability of the vendor/supplier  based only on the maturity levels or any certification being used currently2.      The quality of the deliverables varies widely among the organizations/units that have achieved the same maturity levels. For instance, a company X that is at CMMI® ML3 delivers software products /components with 100 defects per component/KLOC, a company Y at CMMI® ML3 delivers products/components with 200 defects per component/KLOC. Therefore, it is clear that maturity levels are not giving the customer the insight of the product quality through these maturity levels will give us the insight about the process maturity.3.      Some of the clients had another experience  that they found out a positive correlation between the maturity levels and defects injected in the same organization4.      Due to business pressure, the entire models/standards are commoditized, as a consequence, the real maturity of the organization is masked5.      The appraisal method that uses the employees as Appraisal Team members may impact the objectivity of the appraisal6.      Moreover, the implementation and the appraisal process have become too costly to adopt in a small organizationAs everyone will agree with me that in this digital era, software plays a vital role in every sphere of life. For instance, from the rocket to the kitchen every appliance has software embedded in them. Therefore, no one will disagree to the fact that the quality of the software is really crucial and the standard that certifies the organization also is critical as based on the certification many customers will decide to select or not to select the vendorWe have come out with an initial draft of a rating methodology called Del-Q (Delivery Quality) for software organizations /units after a careful study and experience in working with current process models. This model is trying to give a precise and accurate judgement based on relevant metrics so that the real freedom of the limitations stated above.Del-Q focuses on the real metrics of the deliverables from the organization for some time. These metrics will be compared to the baseline standard. This will enable the assessor to categorize the organization in various star categories such as 1-star, 2-star,3-star,4-star and 5-star. Now based on this a customer can take an informed decision on whether to select the vendor or not. This is unambiguous without any hidden interpretation. This rating is not conflicting with any currently available process models whereas this will be complementing those modelsThe illustration given below shows how Del_Q and other process models are complementing each other:The structure and assessment methods will be published soon. As this is the initial draft I would like to invite the readers for a debate on this subject This article is the opinion of the author that is based on the overall experience only, there is no survey conducted to arrive at any conclusionlast_img read more

Wolves offer for young defender reiterated, interest present, could be training…

first_imgThe Norwegian media don’t really ‘do’ transfer rumours, which brings a feeling of reliability, and Varden newspaper had found out the unnamed Championship team said to have made an offer for Kitolano was Wolves.Plenty of scouting had been going on, and Kitolano looked like he’d been recommended by Gary Goodchild who had recently been appointed the club’s scout for Scandinavia.Wednesday’s edition of the same newspaper has good news and bad news for any Wolves interest. The offer is backed up again, and it’s stated Wolves remain keen to sign the player, but Varden say Kitolano wants to stay where he is and sign a renewal.The 18 year old is quoted as saying: “We have a good dialogue with Odd. I expect it to be done soon. I do not want to move anywhere. I want to be in Odd.”Until pen is put to paper, those are hollow words. Kitolano’s contract expires in December (different from June expiry dates in much of Europe because of the Norwegian weather-encouraged football calendar) and Varden say if he doesn’t renew then Odd would only be entitled to 2.5m Norwegian Krone in training compensation.That works out to be around £220k, but when players move outside their own FA, different rules are often in place.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndo美術寶1對1香港媽媽們注意了,速來領取適合4-12歲孩子的繪畫課,手慢無美術寶1對1UndoTheTopFiveVPNEnjoy Netflix Now Without Any RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPNUndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoLoans | Search AdsNeed a loan?

Cut by Browns, Haden signs 3-year deal with Steelers

first_imgThe Pittsburgh Steelers were more than happy to give the longtime Cleveland Browns cornerback a shot at all three.The Steelers signed Haden to a three-year contract on Wednesday night just hours after the Browns granted Haden his release.Haden, a two-time Pro Bowler, gives the defending AFC North champions an upgrade in the secondary in their bid to chase down Super Bowl champion New England.Haden’s deal has a total value of $27 million, said a person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because financial details were not released. Initial talks between Pittsburgh and Haden were first reported by ESPN.The Browns cut Haden earlier Wednesday, breaking ties with one of the few fixtures for a franchise that has spent the entirety of Haden’s seven-year career rebuilding and then rebuilding some more.They don’t do that in Pittsburgh. The Steelers reached the AFC title game in January only to get blown out by the Patriots, with Tom Brady throwing for 383 yards and three touchdowns.Pittsburgh made taking a more aggressive approach a top priority and Haden is eager to prove he’s still an elite defender after two subpar seasons marred by injury.The former first-round draft pick has 19 interceptions in seven seasons, but has been limited to just 18 games the past two years. Haden’s signing adds spice to the season opener between the Browns and Steelers on Sept. 10.This is the second straight season the Steelers have taken on a former Browns defender late in training camp. Pittsburgh sent a sixth-round pick in the 2018 draft to Cleveland last August for former first-round pick Justin Gilbert. Gilbert never earned a starting spot, played in just 12 games and was released the day after the Super Bowl.The expectations will be considerably higher for Haden, who will get a shot to line up opposite Artie Burns.Ross Cockrell and Coty Sensabaugh have spent much of training camp vying for a starting spot, but both could take on lesser roles or perhaps even be out of a job entirely depending on what direction the Steelers want to go in when rosters are trimmed to 53 on Saturday.The Steelers took cornerback Cam Sutton in the third round of the draft and also have veteran William Gay and Mike Hilton in the mix, among others.Pittsburgh went 11-5 last season despite a middling performance against the pass. The Steelers finished 16th in yards passing allowed, 15th in interceptions and ninth in sacks, rankings they have said repeatedly during training camp need to improve if they want any chance at catching up with the Patriots.If Haden can recapture some of the form he displayed in 2013 and 2014, the Steelers could inch closer to ending New England’s vice grip on AFC supremacy.___AP Sports Writer Tom Withers in Cleveland contributed to this report.___For more NFL coverage: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL PITTSBURGH (AP) — Joe Haden needed a job, a change of scenery and a chance at a Super Bowl.

Stephens tops Keys in US Open final for 1st Grand Slam title

first_img“Sloane is truly one of my favorite people and to get to play her was really special. Obviously I didn’t play my best tennis today and was disappointed,” Keys said. “But Sloane, being the great friend that she is, was very supportive. And if there’s someone I have to lose to today, I’m glad it’s her.” NEW YORK (AP) — Sloane Stephens’ remarkably rapid rise from a ranking of 957th in early August to U.S. Open champion on Saturday began with the slow work of coming back from surgery on her left foot.After being off tour for 11 months because of her injury, Stephens easily beat her close friend Madison Keys 6-3, 6-0 in the first Grand Slam final for both, becoming only the second unseeded woman to win the tournament in the Open era, which began in 1968.“I mean, there is no words to describe how I got here — the process it took or anything like that,” Stephens said, “because if you told someone this story, they’d be, like, ‘That’s insane.’”After the operation in January, Stephens couldn’t walk for a month. It wasn’t until May that she would get back onto a tennis court — and even then she was off her feet, plopped on a wood table at a practice facility at UCLA while aiming her racket at balls tossed by her coach, Kamau Murray. From there, Murray said, Stephens progressed to sitting while rolling around on an armless office chair. Two weeks later, Stephens finally was able to stand in place while working on her swing. Another two weeks, and she was allowed to move.“Definitely,” Murray said Saturday, “not fun for her.”Sloane Stephens, of the United States, right, and Madison Keys, of the United States, talk after Stephens beat Keys in the women’s singles final of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017, in New York. (AP Photo/Andres Kudacki)Nor was it all that fun to face a pal with so much at stake. Stephens, 24, and Keys, 22, have known each other for about a decade, first as juniors, then on tour and as U.S. Fed Cup and Olympic teammates. Theytexted and spoke on the phone early in 2017, when both sat out the Australian Open because of injuries — Keys had surgery on her left wrist during the offseason, then again in June.When the match ended after only 61 minutes, with Stephens claiming the last eight games, they met at the net for a long hug . While waiting for the trophy ceremony to begin, Stephens walked over and plopped herself down in a courtside chair next to Keys, so they could chat side-by-side.

When Stephens was presented with her $3.7 million winner’s check, she grabbed Keys’ arm, as if to stop herself from fainting at the sum.“That’s a lot of money!” Stephens said. Keys eyed the check and teased, “I’ll hold it for her.”Keys texted Murray a couple of days before the U.S. Open began to arrange a practice session with Stephens. And the two finalists planned to party together Saturday night.“She can buy me drinks,” Keys said. “All of the drinks.”This was only the second time in the Open era that two women were making their Grand Slam final debuts against each other in New York.Keys acknowledged afterward it was all a bit much for her, and it showed: She wound up with 30 unforced errors.“I definitely think my play today came down to nerves and all of that,” she said, “and I just don’t think I handled the occasion perfectly.”Stephens, meanwhile, made only six unforced errors.Told of that number by a reporter during her engaging news conference, filled with quips and smiles, Stephens slapped a palm on the table in front her, then snapped her fingers and said: “Shut the front door. I don’t think that’s ever happened to me before. Oh, my God. That’s a stat.”Still, she had dealt with jitters beforehand, too.Murray went to Stephens’ hotel room Friday night to check on her, using as an excuse for the visit that he needed to deliver some clean laundry. This is how he said the conversation went:Stephens: “You wanted to see if I was nervous.”Murray: “Yeah.”Stephens: “I am.”“We just laughed and chuckled and talked about it for about 25 minutes, and after that, it was all good,” Murray said. “I mean, probably she was still nervous but, you know, at least give her a chance to get it out.”Stephens’ late father, John Stephens, was the 1988 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year for the New England Patriots. And her mother, Sybil Smith, was Boston University’s first All-American in women’s swimming. In addition to being a super athlete, Stephens seems to thrive in the spotlight: She’s now 5-0 in tournament finals.A year ago, she sat out the U.S. Open altogether because of her foot problem.In 2017, her season debut came at Wimbledon in July, when she lost in the first round. Lost her next match, too, in Washington.Since then, she has gone 15-2. Her ranking, up to 83rd at the start of the U.S. Open, will climb to No. 17 on Monday. Oh, and, don’t forget: She is now, and forever will be, a Grand Slam champion.“I should just retire now,” Stephens joked. “I told Maddie I’m never going to be able to top this. I mean, talk about a comeback.”___More AP tennis coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/apf-Tennis___Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrichlast_img read more

Former Major Leaguer and Lawrence County native Hank Allen still enjoys baseball as MLB Scout

first_imgHAROLD “HANK” ALLEN, inside the Baltimore Orioles press box, where he continues to work as a scout for the Houston Astros. He spends an equal amount of time at Nationals Park in D.C., where he once played for the Washington Senators. (Photo by Timothy Cox)‘I got to be very good friends with Clemente later in life. He was a very humble man, and so was Stargell.’BALTIMORE, Md.—When Harold “Hank” Allen was a kid growing up in rural Lawrence County, Pa., he and his younger brother Richard “Dick” Allen never imagined they’d someday become teammates in the major leagues.After both finished highly-touted athletic careers at Wampum High School (now Mohawk High) about 40 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, the Allen brothers were already considered two of the finest athletes in the state. Both young men led their Wampum basketball squads to state titles; Hank in 1958, Dick in 1960. Though the school was of a small-enrollment Class C category, their talented teams competed in the Class B category. (At the time, the PIAA only had three categories, A, B and C). Wampum also won the 1955 state hoops title.Though both Allen brothers excelled on the hardcourt, it’s with the hard ball where they would become standouts—and where Hank Allen continues to hone his craft, as a scout for Major League Baseball’s Houston Astros.While Richie “Call Me Dick” Allen retired as one of the most prolific power hitters in MLB history, including being named the 1964 National League Rookie of the Year with the Phillies and a seven-time All-Star, Hank Allen played seven seasons as a valued utility man, first in the Philadelphia minor league system, in addition to longer stints with the Washington Senators, Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago White Sox. On the White Sox, he and Dick played together for two years—the only time since they left high school.last_img read more

Steelers defense turning heads, Vikings struggle without QB

first_imgMinnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum (7) gets off a pass while being hit by Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Tyson Alualu, rear, and outside linebacker Arthur Moats (55) during the second half of an NFL football game in Pittsburgh, Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017. (AP Photo/Don Wright) PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Bud Dupree was so locked in to his assignment, that he had no clue the Minnesota Vikings started Case Keenum for injured quarterback Sam Bradford until the second series of Pittsburgh’s 26-9 victory on Sunday, when Dupree found himself chasing the sub.“Then I got back there (in the backfield), I knew (Bradford) was way taller and I was like, ‘that ain’t even him,’” Dupree said.Dupree spent most of the rest of the afternoon getting a close-up look at Keenum, spearheading another solid defensive performance by the Steelers. Pittsburgh (2-0) held the Vikings to 237 total yards, sacked Keenum twice and kept Minnesota rookie running back Dalvin Cook under wraps.For a team that spent most of the offseason talking about its high-powered offense, the guys on the other side of the ball are more than holding their own until the “Killer Bs” gets it together.“We know the offense is going to score points,” Dupree said.Maybe, but not yet. The Steelers have only four offensive touchdowns through two games, forcing the defense to be something more than adequate. So far, it hasn’t been an issue, though Pittsburgh is well aware sterner tests await after facing Cleveland rookie DeShone Kizer and Keenum — a journeyman who got the nod when Sam Bradford’s swollen left knee prevented him from playing — in the first two weeks.“You see leaps and bounds (of improvement),” defensive end Cam Heyward said. “We’re better in some instances, whether it’s our technique and execution. But we’ve got to get better. It’s just two games. I’m not going to jump head over heels because it’s two games.”Still, Dupree borrowed one of head coach Mike Tomlin’s favorite “Tomlinisms” when he offered “we have the arrow pointing up” when asked about the strides the defense is making. Pittsburgh has allowed just 474 net yards through two games, an impressive start for a group that finished a pedestrian 12th in the league in 2016.“We’re going to be a great team all the way around,” Dupree said. “Don’t want to be an offensive team or a defense team. … We just want to keep it rolling.”Some other takeaways as the Steelers improved to 10-1 in home openers under Tomlin.SAM’S STATUS: Vikings coach Mike Zimmer stressed Bradford is going to be “OK.” Other than that, everything else about Bradford’s status is a mystery. Asked to give a timetable on how long Bradford might be sidelined, Zimmer said he wasn’t going to offer any sort of specifics.“Maybe next week, maybe six weeks from now,” Zimmer said. “(Bradford) is going to be OK. It’s non-surgical so he is going to be fine.”FLAG DAY: Tomlin promised the Steelers would improve after drawing 13 penalties in the opener against Cleveland. He was right, but only by a little. The Steelers were flagged 10 times for 72 yards. The Vikings weren’t any better, earning 11 penalties for 131 yards, including a pair of pass interference calls that directly set up Pittsburgh touchdowns.“I’d like us to play cleaner,” Tomlin said. “I respect the flags thrown.”ROLLING, ROLLING, ROLLING: Pittsburgh wide receivers Martavis Bryant and JuJu Smith-Schuster both threw imaginary dice while celebrating their first touchdowns of the season. Bryant said it was something the receivers came up with during the week following a brainstorming session. They plan on mixing it up week to week. The Steelers drew a delay of game penalty after Bryant’s score, a flag Tomlin took the blame, saying “it was more of a procedural thing on my part.”OLD FRIENDS: Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown and Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes grew up in Miami, going to the same high school. They were two years apart at Miami-Norland and held an impromptu reunion at Heinz Field. Brown ultimately got the upper hand, finishing with five receptions for 62 yards.“Our battle was good,” Rhodes said. “We had fun but at the end of the day we still wanted to win.”INJURY UPDATE: Pittsburgh rookie LB T.J. Watt left in the first half with a groin issue but said he considers it “something minor.” Steelers TE Jesse James is dealing with a left ankle issue. Left tackle Alejandro Villanueva missed part of the second half due to “heat related issues” on a day the temperature at Heinz Field hovered in the mid-80s.___For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL .last_img read more

Filipe Luis will coach Flamengo when he retires

first_img IN SPORT.ES CET Filipe Luis entrenará al Flamengo cuando se retire Sport EN Former Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis has revealed that when his career as a player ends, he’ll coach Brazilian side Flamengo. The left back signed a contract with the club until 2021, when he will make the switch to the bench. Upd. at 20:29 “When I started to speak to Flamengo, in the negotiations one of the things that convinced me was that they offered me precisely that, this post-career plan,” he explained. The 34-year-old player told Coluna do Fla, his team’s website, that when he decided to come back to Brazil to wear his childhood club’s shirt, the directors promised him a career as a coach. 31/10/2019 Felipe started off at Figueirense in 2003-04, before moving to Ajax and Real Madrid Castilla, and later to Deportivo la Coruna (06-10). Then he signed for Atletico (10-14), Chelsea (14-15) and back to Atletico (15-19) before joining Flamengo.last_img read more
