Delta Shelter – a 1,000 square-foot cabin – is essentially a steel-clad box on stilts that can be completely shuttered when the owner is away. The 200 square-foot footprint of the house rises above a 40-acre, 100-year flood plain adjacent to the Methow River. The verticality, coloring and raw nature of the materials used for construction directly respond to the wildness of the setting. The owner sought a compact, easy to maintain, virtually indestructible building to house himself and his friends for fun and adventure in the mountains. With an exterior of steel, the house is virtually indestructible.Save this picture!2nd Floor Plan. © Olson Kundig+ 33The cabin is composed of three levels: the lowest level is half carport, half utility/storage room; the middle level consists of the entry, two small bedrooms and bathrooms; the top level is one large space which includes living, dining and cooking areas. Cantilevered steel decks extend from the top and middle levels and provide space for outdoor sleeping and entertaining.Save this picture!© Benjamin Benschneider / Olson KundigThe cabin is supported by four steel columns. Floors are 3” x 6” tongue-and-groove wood car-decking, and exterior wood infill walls are clad in 16-gauge, hot-rolled steel sheets with exposed steel fasteners. Most of the structure, including the steel structure, roof panels, shutters, and stairs, was prefabricated off-site, thereby reducing on-site waste and site disruption.Save this picture!Axonometric. © Olson KundigDue to prefabrication and the use of plywood for all interior surfaces, typical construction wastage was kept to a minimum. Aside from building as small a structure as possible and limiting the impact on the landscape, Delta Shelter’s most unique sustainable strategy was to be able to open the structure to the environment and to use human power as the means to do it.Save this picture!© Benjamin Benschneider / Olson KundigSave this picture!© Benjamin Benschneider / Olson KundigAll four shutters, which measure 10’ x 18’, can be opened and closed simultaneously by using a hand wheel that moves the shutters over the glazed portions of each façade. The shutters are operated by a series of mechanical devices including a hand wheel, drive shafts, u-joints, spur gears and cables. All windows are operable.

‘Jobs & rec centers, not police terror!’

first_imgThe Rev. Cortly “C.D.” Witherspoon being arrested at Baltimore City Hall.Baltimore Peoples Assembly activists arrestedBaltimore, Aug. 6 — Undeterred by the over-90-degree heat, a crowd of nearly 100 people gathered in Baltimore today to protest police terror and the closing of recreation centers throughout the city. The rally began at 3 p.m., and by 3:30 a spirited march surged toward City Hall, chanting “Stop police terror!”The crowd consisted of many family members and survivors of police terror. In addition, a slew of Occupy Wall Street activists from Baltimore and Washington, D.C., joined the rally. A contingent from the UNITE HERE union was present, as were numerous other activists and organizers from the African-American community of Baltimore, including the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and Churches United.When the protesters arrived at the cobblestone area in front of City Hall, the Rev. Cortly “C.D.” Witherspoon and Sharon Black, organizers of the Baltimore Peoples Assembly, announced that they had a letter to present to Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake. The letter consisted of three demands: community control of the police, jobs for all, and no closing of recreation centers or fire stations.The letter had been crafted by the Baltimore Peoples Assembly, which gathered June 30 to forge a people’s agenda against the police terror and economic misery that plagues the city. The letter stressed the need for resources to be spent on providing for human needs and for action to be taken against the daily reality of police terrorism.After reading the letter to those gathered, the Peoples Assembly representatives entered City Hall to deliver the letter to the mayor. They made clear that they had no fear of being arrested if they were blocked from seeing this elected official who claimed to represent them.People recount grievances at spirited rallyA spirited rally began in the heat of the afternoon, chaired by Andre Powell, American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, Baltimore Metropolitan AFL-CIO delegate and leader of the All Peoples Congress, and Leon Purnell, president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference Baltimore chapter.Among those who spoke was Richie Armstrong, a leader of Churches United, who had been arrested protesting for jobs along with three other unemployed workers. One of these workers was severely beaten and brutalized by police at a march for jobs on March 29.Joyce Fisher, a well-known activist from the Poplar Grove neighborhood, addressed the crowd. Activists involved in the struggle to save the Falls Point Recreation Center described the ongoing fight to save this community resource as well as the good-paying union jobs the recreation centers provide.Many victims of police brutality and their family members spoke. The mother of David Yimm recounted how her son was shot in his car by the police, who put four bullets through the car window. Marcella Hollomau spoke about the brutal police killing of her son Maurice Johnson, and supportive friends read a poem she composed in his memory. Renee Washington spoke of her fiancé, who was murdered by the Baltimore police.Lee Patterson, speaking for Workers World Party, outlined how these community struggles were linked to the struggle against capitalism and U.S. imperialism.Activists arrested after mayor refuses to meet with themAs the rally continued, Witherspoon and Black remained inside City Hall.According to their accounts, both remained insistent that they were representing the voices and will of the Baltimore Peoples Assembly. Because of this, they asserted, they could not leave until they got an answer from the mayor that City Hall would take the demands seriously and would set a meeting.The mayor’s aide continued to push the view that the organizers needed to make their request electronically and that no guarantees could be made. A host of police representatives including Major Smith, the head of Central District Police, spoke with the two Peoples Assembly delegates and tried to convince them to change their view.At 5:30 p.m. the building was closed to anyone wanting to enter. Police wagons had arrived at the scene and a SWAT team of police was assembled along with regular City Hall police.A tense 90 minutes passed as Witherspoon and Black were held inside.Around 6:30 p.m. Witherspoon and Black were taken from the building in handcuffs, escorted by officers in SWAT uniforms. The crowd of activists, community members and police terror victims roared in anger at their arrests, as the two were dragged through the crowd toward a police van.National Lawyers Guild attorney Curtis Cooper was dispatched to see that Black and Witherspoon were released. The two were charged with trespassing.The entire rally was streamed across the internet by a Washington, D.C., Occupy activist. Countless city workers stopped by the rally with interest, listening and agreeing with much of what was said. With chants of “We’ll be back!” the crowd made thunderously clear their efforts would continue as they marched away from City Hall.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

I was a tomboy and didn’t have a collection of dolls, tea sets or batons. I had a BB gun, a Howdy Doody puppet and a teddy bear. Lots of funny books, marbles, roller skates and a bow and arrows.  None of that was in the storage house that day.But nothing she could have saved would have been as memorable and as cherished as what I found among the brochures packed in the top of the “chester drawers” – the leaflet from Camp Grandview, my first “going off to camp” experience.Mama said Camp Grandview was way off on the other side of Montgomery but I wanted to go more than anything in the world. And I went into a begging fit.Mama didn’t want me to go. She said she would be worried sick and wouldn’t sleep a wink the whole time I was gone. Daddy said it would do me good to go off from home a few days. He won out.Tucked inside the leaflet was the receipt from where Daddy paid my one-dollar registration fee. The whole week of camp only cost $16.50.I’d handled that leaflet so much that the paper was worn as thin and soft as silk. It was as clear in my memory as if I’d held it just that very day of discovery.I remembered every picture and every word.It said there was water at Camp Grandview for swimming and for drinking and it was tested by the State Department of Health.Maybe that eased Mama’s mind.  Wholesome meals with plenty of fruit, fresh vegetables and milk were “traditional” with Grandview. Not with me. Betsy’s milk made bumps on my tongue.And the camp was equipped with running water, electric lights and telephone – not telephones, telephone.We were to bring one blanket, two sheets single bed size, pillow case, towel, wash cloth, bathing suit, swimming cap, play clothes, drinking cup, toilet articles (I didn’t know what that was) flashlight and Bible.And, the leaflet said it “would be nice to bring” extra things like costumes, a Kodak, jack-knife, a rain slick and scissors.I carried my Tuf-Nut knife. Back then, young’uns were allowed to have knives. We needed such things.Each day at Camp Grandview was divided into Happy Hours, Breakfast – clean cabins, hobby groups, swimming.Lunch – hobby groups, outdoor recreation, swimming. Supper – stunts, plays, campfires, parties, music vespers. How exciting.The activities for us were swimming, tennis, tumbling, shuffleboard, ping-pong, softball, crafts, dancing, dramatics, storytelling, rainy day games, hiking, worship and outdoor cooking. It all sounded fun, except for “dramatics” whatever that was. I was in for the time of my life.Camp Grandview was the grandest thing that had ever happened to me. I made lots of friends, got to go swimming in the huge pool that was at the bottom of a steep hill and there were a hundred steps going down to it and about 300 going back up.Hiking was so much fun and all the outdoor stuff. I was the best person at camp with a knife. Some of those girls were from big cities like Montgomery and they didn’t bring knives and they were scared of mine or of me.The campfires were the best things. I got to help start the fire just about every night. I was good at that because back home we played with fire a lot.Even though I was sad to leave such a good time, I could hardly wait to tell Mama and Daddy all about all of my adventures.Mama wasn’t too interested. And that was my fault.See. She had packaged my play clothes in little bags. Clean clothes for each day – socks, a pair of shorts, a shirt and my “under britches” and a washcloth. The soap was in a plastic soap dish Mama had bought special at the dime store.Now, at home, I’d bathed in the bathroom by myself. At Camp Grandview, all the girls bathed in showers in a big, open bathroom. They would jerk back the cloth curtains on each other. They thought it was funny. Well, it wouldn’t be funny to me. So, I just didn’t take a bath … not the whole long week.  But I went swimming two times a day.Mama might never have known about it, except I took those little bags of clean clothes and that dry bar of Jergens soap right back home with me.Mama didn’t want to hear about my good time at camp. She marched me to the bathroom holding her nose and twisting my ear all the way.In telling that dirty tale again and again over the years, Mama said I was crusted over with dirt and that she had to use a scrub brush and Dutch Cleanser to get me clean.She said corn could have grown between my toes.Well, Mama washed all the dirt and grim away but not even the years could wash away the memories of Camp Grandview. I’ve never been that dirty again and I’m not sure that I’ve ever had more fun than the summer I went away to camp way off on the other side of Montgomery.

From every ABC he ever wrote to the razor he used to shave on his wedding day.“Where’s my stuff, Mama? What did you save of mine?”Mama didn’t have anything to say about that. Out go the boxes of canning jars that we’d saved for the beans and squash from the garden we never planted. The yellow, polka-dot bikini from years and pounds ago, stacks of handwriting exhibits from one of the young’uns or the other, towels “borrowed” from the Holiday Inn, a sack of socks in-waiting for their mates to reappear. Newspapers from the inauguration of Teddy Roosevelt. Topless Kool-Whip cartons, pens without ink, brochures from places we’ve been and places we’ll never go ….And, looking through that mound of brochures, I became a child again and a lump swelled up in my throat.Why, Mama, bless her heart, she did save something of mine after all.

Locked out

first_img By The Penny Hoarder Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day “Under Alabama law, you have a landfill permit to operate a landfill. To get a landfill permit, you have to have host government approval,” Thomas said. “This host government agreement reflects the conditions under which host government approval was granted.”Thomas said the host government agreement provides the citizens of Brundidge with a number of benefits.“To name a few, it gives our citizens free waste disposal at the landfill,” he said. “It creates a fund for road maintenance and litter control and it provides the city with an important revenue stream, thanks to the per-ton host government fee for each ton of waste received.”Perhaps, most important, Thomas said the agreement provides Brundidge with ongoing information and oversight of the landfill’s operations. Photo by Jaine TreadwellLandfill, town in limboThe gates of the Brundidge Landfill on the southbound lane of U.S. Highway 231 have been closed since mid-June, and Brundidge City Manager Britt Thomas cannot hide his frustration.“For 25 years, the City of Brundidge has recognized the environmental need and economic potential of having a modern landfill operating in our city,” Thomas said. “And, unlike many communities, we’ve supported the operation of such a landfill within our city limits.” Skip Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Sponsored Content But now, the privately owned landfill sits shuttered. And the City of Brundidge sits on the sidelines as judicial proceedings determine its fate – and the future of what has been a significant source of revenue for Brundidge.The landfill historyThe Brundidge Landfill is owned by Brundidge Landfill LLC and was operated under a permit issued by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) and a host government agreement between the landfill owners and the Brundidge Solid Waste Disposal Authority. Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits “If there’s a proposed variance in its permit or a problem, we’re made aware of it,” he said.Now, that host government agreement is in jeopardy.“After a period of financial struggles, as they tried to operate the landfill on a regional scale, Brundidge Landfill LLC and its parent company TLA-Brundidge LLC filed for bankruptcy in June 2012 in federal bankruptcy court in New Jersey,” Thomas said.With the landfill in bankruptcy, liquidation proceedings ultimately began, Thomas said.“The bankruptcy estate’s trustee sought to sell the landfill to pay off the creditors of the bankrupt companies,” he said. “Recognizing the limitations created by the host government agreement, they asked the bankruptcy court to void that agreement should the landfill be successfully sold.”If the agreement is voided, then everything underlying the City of Brundidge’s host government approval is null and void, Thomas said. “And, that means the ADEM permit, which means no landfill. And that may be just what they – Coffee County – wants.”The Coffee County variableThomas said that the Coffee County line is eight miles south of Brundidge, the way the crow flies.“Right now, the bankruptcy trustee is working to sell the landfill to a company called Brundidge Acquisitions, LLC,” Thomas said. “Brundidge Acquisitions is relying on funding from Coffee County to finance the purchase of the landfill.”On Oct. 17, 2012, the Coffee County Commission authorized the issue of up to $6 million in financing to Brundidge Acquisitions to enable it to acquire the landfill. It also entered into a project agreement with Brundidge Acquisitions to govern the use of any such funds.With its assurance of financing in hand, on Dec. 18, 2012, Brundidge Acquisitions agreed to purchase the landfill from the bankruptcy estate for $4 million. The court approved the agreement, contingent upon there being no other offers for the landfill that were less than $250,000 more than the Brundidge Acquisition offer, Thomas said.“Of course there were no other offers,” Thomas said. “The City of Brundidge has looked at the landfill and considered buying it. Other private companies have looked at the landfill. No one who is serious about it seems to think it’s worth much more than $1 million. So, why is Coffee County willing to spend almost four times what the landfill is worth?”The answer should be obvious, the Brundidge city manager said.“Look at the map,” Thomas said. “You have the Coffee County Landfill, which collects disposal fees for Coffee County. You have major sources of waste in Troy and, between them, you have our landfill. Basically, they are a competitor and Coffee County wants to shut us down.”Thomas said the Coffee County interests are either going to acquire the Brundidge landfill and divert waste to their landfill or destroy the City of Brundidge’s landfill permit over the course of an unsuccessful acquisition process.“Either way, their landfill will end up with the waste volumes,” Thomas said.Thomas said that he doesn’t understand why Coffee County’s citizens support paying four times what the landfill is worth.“Something just doesn’t add up,” he said. “It’s hardly the stuff of being good neighbors, which is something we’ve always tried to be.“And, this will hurt, not just our town’s revenues, but our citizens, who are facing the likelihood of increased collection and disposal costs.”The wait for resolutionThe landfill issue became so contentious that the City of Brundidge filed a lawsuit on Jan. 31, 2013, seeking a declaratory judgment that Alabama law prohibits a county from acquiring property in another county, much less in another city in another county.Another lawsuit, which was filed a week earlier, demanded that the Southeast Alabama Solid Waste Disposal Authority, of which Coffee County is a member, stop collecting waste in Brundidge for disposal at the Coffee County Landfill.“Alabama law is crystal clear in this regard,” Thomas said. “An authority cannot operate within a municipality without that municipality’s approval. We’ve told the authority that on several occasions and we finally had to file a lawsuit.”When questioned as to why the City of Brundidge doesn’t buy the landfill, Thomas was quick to answer.“Look, we’ve tried talking directly with the creditors and we’ve tried talking with the bankruptcy trustee,” he said. “But they are all fixated on this pie-in-the-sky idea of a $4 million purchaser out there for a $1 million landfill. So, they aren’t talking to anyone else.“But that $4 million dog isn’t going to hunt because Alabama law does not allow another county to underwrite the purchase of property in my town. And, it doesn’t allow a landfill to be operated after the host government agreement has been unilaterally rejected by the owner.”In the event Thomas is wrong and Brundidge Acquisitions can acquire the landfill, then that’s an even bigger issue for Alabama, Thomas said.“If that’s the case and a landfill can simply go bankrupt and then re-open without a host government agreement remaining in place, then it calls the whole host government approval process into question,” Thomas said. “And is that what ADEM wants? Is that what the people want?” By Jaine Treadwell Book Nook to reopen Print Article You Might Like Seussical celebration Garrett left, and Hunter Hatfield were Thing One and Thing Two, but they could not buckle their shoe.
