Village of Bonita combating for federal cash

MONROE, La. (KNOE) – A mayor of a rural northeast Louisiana village in Washington, DC is fighting for money to buy infrastructure. The mayor of Bonita is committed to the reconstruction of small towns and villages.

Bonitas Mayor Virgil Penn has raised concerns. He says the village and other small towns need new water, sewer and drainage systems. Several small towns and villages face infrastructure problems. Some officials say they are often swept under the carpet, but they speak out in Bonita Village.

“We have the worst water in the world. We have the worst sewers in the world, ”said Pastor James Smith, director of economic development for The Village of Bonita.

He says smaller governments like Bonita want their fair share of federal funds.

“When we get this bill and start building our wells, sewer systems and drainage. We can compete with the world. We are not landlocked. We can compete with companies that come here, ”said Pastor Smith.

Mayor Penn says poor towns and cities are often overlooked. Because of this, village officials traveled to DC to speak directly to Senator Bill Cassidy and Congressman Julia Letlow.

“She’s excited about the program we’re implementing and she’s from Start, Louisiana, so we’re trying to bring this corridor of wards and parishes together,” said Virgil Penn, mayor of Bonita Village.

Bonita is one of many communities deemed to be tax-stricken by the Louisiana Legislative Auditor’s Office. So the infrastructure money can make or destroy local governments like this one.

The 54,500 square foot Pindustry Restaurant and Bar in Greenwood Village.

Centennial-based Kelmore Development, which has been developing along Arapahoe Road for 30 years, suggested the city of Pindustry to mimic similar concepts popping up across the country combining multiple categories of entertainment. The building in which it was developed was formerly Greenwood Automotive.

“We worked with the city early on to try to have our opinion on this,” said Kelmore owner Bob Koontz. “We’re only part of it, but we’re the first piece to be re-developed in the Arapahoe Entertainment District.”

Just a block from Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater, Pindustry hopes to serve as a venue before and after concerts, as well as putting on their own live music. It opens on weekdays at 4 p.m. and on weekends at 11 a.m. and only allows entry after 8 p.m. from 21 years of age

“This is of course the first prototype of a new concept and we hope it does well for this area and the entertainment project,” said Koontz. “If it goes well and is as unique as we think it is, it may be something we do elsewhere.”

Kelmore Development’s previous entertainment developments include Celebrity Lanes and Regal Theaters. It also operates on the stock exchange in Lowry’s Boulevard One retail complex, which has attracted Target and Clark’s Market as tenants. The company is developing this project with Denver-based Confluent Development.

Domino’s Pizza elevating cash for Domino’s Village, housing facility at St. Jude

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – How would you feel if every box of pizza you bought helped a child with cancer? Help them keep families close together at a time that can be difficult.

Domino’s Pizza makes sure that they are doing something to help the families who are going through the challenging childhood cancer situation. The company is soon to offer housing on its Memphis campus to solve another problem.

“The first way people can raise funds is to just round up their checks,” said Steve Covey, development director for Domino’s Dream Team Pizza.

Every year Domino’s runs his “Thank you and give” Campaign for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

“You know, two cents here, 30 cents there,” said Covey. “Doesn’t seem like much at the time, but it adds up.”

Now the pizza chain is doing things differently and using the campaign year round to help build the Dominos village. Domino’s Village is used to give families the opportunity to stay close to their child for free. Families like Kris Myers-Trysla.

At seven months, Myers-Trysla’s son Clayton was confronted with a rare cancer diagnosis.

“They scanned him and he was diagnosed with a primitive neuroectodermal tumor,” she said. “Stage Four Brain Cancer.”

Her family had to get up and leave their Kansas home to move to Memphis to receive treatment for Clayton. At that time they were housed in the target house on the St. Jude campus.

“There are different apartments. There is the Tri Delta House, the Ronald McDonald House and then there is that Target house. The target house is intended for families who know that they will be there for more than three months. “

Finding Housing for Another Financial Hurdle St. Jude didn’t want families to worry about it.

“Cancer is expensive,” said Myers-Trysla. “Nobody can afford cancer. But for those families who would say: “I absolutely … I have no insurance, I cannot get my child treated”. I mean, it’s such a gift for so many people. “

This is where Domino’s Pizza comes in as, with your help, they prepare to begin building Dominos Village.

“Obviously, you must have loved ones around when your kids are in the hospital,” said Covey. “Domino’s Village will be a place where families can stay for free while their children are looked after. And that’s supposed to open in 2023. “

You can help a family and their child get through the tough battle against childhood cancer with every slice and piece of cheese at Domino’s to make sure no one sees a bill in St. Jude.

Across the country, one of Domino’s Pizza in Topeka took second place to raise the most money for St. Jude in 2020. In total, all of the stores in the US raised more than $ 13 million.

Imagining our leisure future | Village 14

|  Newton MA News and Politics Blog

I run the Newton Nomadic Theater. Our theater and all other local arts, music and entertainment organizations have mostly closed for the last year.

We held a few online events at the beginning of the pandemic, but we’ve since lost our motivation to hold more online events. In warm weather we were able to bring people together for some events (Secret ride in concert, and Waiting for Godot – Covid 19 Edition). While these were both major events, they were seriously constrained by the necessary health and safety restrictions during the time of the pandemic.

Here is my question. How long do you think it will take before 50 or 100 people are ready to share the same narrow space for an evening of music, theater, etc.? I’m sure this won’t be all or nothing. It will undoubtedly be done in incremental steps.

How long will it take to be us? Celebrate like 1999. A couple of months?, Six months?, A year ?, never?

Once you have a shot of vaccine in your arm, will you be thinking of being in a crowd again in the not too distant future, or will this year’s lockdown keep you cautious for some time in the future?

I itches more than going back to the real world. So how long before:

  1. They believe that all restrictions on public gatherings are lifted
  2. Personally, you think you are ready to crowd into a small space for good music or theater
