New Casino Sites UK 2019

By Debby Schoeningh
One of the best ways to learn about online gaming establishments is through the experiences of other players. From them, you can learn things which other sources might have forgotten to mention. Another good source of information is from people who have a firm foundation about online casinos and know what to look for and how to convey the information.

The site features both a forum where online casino patrons, regulars and casuals both, can gather to post little tidbits of information. It also features extensive reviews about various online casinos, such as which of them are currently offering the best sign-up bonuses (so you can pick the best deal for you and your money), which of them give the largest payouts, which of them follow the e-Commerce Online Gaming Regulation and Assistance (eCOGRA) tenets, and which of them allow US patrons to play.

Council Adopts Deadly Physical Force Plan, Local Taxi Service Requests Fare Increase

By Mark Luker

The Consent Agenda was relatively light for the Baker City Council on Tuesday evening and was approved by the Council unanimously.

First order of business for the Council was Senate Bill 111, which was passed in 2007. Baker County District Attorney Matt Shirtcliff advised that the bill requires each County to adopt a Deadly Physical Force Plan. Shirtcliff, who was part of the team that originally drafted the plan, said Senate Bill 111 deals with how each agency will investigate a use of deadly force situation. He said this plan calls for an investigation of each deadly force situation to be conducted by an agency other than the one involved, and that this plan is not too different than the one Baker City already has in place.

Councilor Andrew Bryan asked  Baker City Police Chief Wyn Lohner if law enforcement agencies support this plan. Chief Lohner reported that the plan has been “out there” for a year now and is generally accepted.

Eastern Oregon Light And Power Installs Solar Generation System

by Teri Brown-Johnson

Here is an update on the Eastern Oregon Light & Power Company. According to Vice President Mark Henderson, it spends most of its efforts licensing the historic Rock Creek Hydroelectric Plant.

However, since obtaining a Federal Energy Regulatory License is a five and a half to a seven year process, EOL &P is beginning to install some Solar Photovoltaic electrical generation systems. EOL&P’s Mark Henderson said their first solar system is being installed on a shop building in Haines. While it is a relatively small system, at a rated 2,293 watts, every little bit helps. Solar is an obvious drawback that doesn’t generate any electricity at night.
