Absentee ballots requested for this election date were collected and sealed, per directives from Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose.In Ohio House Bill 197, passed into law on March 27 by Governor Mike DeWine, election provisions extended the period for absentee voting by mail in the March 17, 2020 Primary Election until 7:30 p.m. on April 28, 2020, allowing electors who were registered to vote by the Feb. 18, 2020 deadline and had not already voted in this election to cast their ballots. On Election Day, limited in-person voting was available to individuals with qualifying disabilities or who could not receive mail. Local unofficial results for this election (tabulated from absentee ballots cast March 17 and April 28) are now available at the Adams County Board of Elections.Adams County Board of Elections Director Stephanie Lewis explained that the official canvass, which will include provisional ballots into the results, begins May 11 in Adams County. “What we have left (to count) is just outstanding absentee ballots that are postmarked from April 27, and we also have provisional ballots that will be reviewed then,” said Director Lewis.When asked if she thought changes to the procedure in this election (i.e., limited in-person voting and required absentee voting by mail) had affected voter turnout, Director Lewis replied: “For a presidential primary, I think the number’s pretty low. In the 2016 presidential primary election, I think our total voter turnout was maybe just under 7,600, so (at 4,263 ballots cast this year) it’s quite a difference this time around.”According to official results, there were 16,370 residents of Adams County registered to vote in the 2016 Primary Election; with 7,600 votes, about ~46% of registered voters cast their ballots in 2016. In comparison, there were 16,579 residents of Adams County registered to vote in the 2020 Primary Election, and 4,263 (~25%) cast their ballots.In terms of collecting and counting ballots this year, Director Lewis explained that: “The biggest difference is that we didn’t have polling locations across the county, which would normally have to bring in USB drives filled with data. Basically, our Board processed and scanned all day long, and when the state closed polls, we were able to go ahead and start that tabulation process, so it did speed that process up. There was just a lot more handling of the mail ballots. I think the Board ended up having to work about three days trying to get all of the ballots opened up, scanned, and ready for election night.” Director Lewis added that volunteer poll workers were not used in this process, and Adams County Board of Election staff were able to handle the work required.Director Lewis concluded: “I don’t know about results, but I do think the changes in procedure for this election affected overall turnout. A lot of people didn’t want to go through the process of requesting a form, then filling that out to request a ballot, so I think that did prevent a lot of people from voting this time around because a lot of them are used to just going to the polls, walking in, and being done; this procedure was a little bit lengthier – it took a little bit longer to do – and we had several that didn’t meet the deadlines because they didn’t know the process. It’s not a new process. We’ve always done absentee voting by mail like this, but with it just being absentee only, I think that was a big change for people. The ones who do absentee voting by mail really like it, but there are others who just haven’t had any experience with voting that way.”The local Unofficial Canvass Summary Report for the 2020 Primary Election states that:In Adams County, 857 (56.27%) of 1,523 Democratic Party-registered voters cast their ballots in the Democratic Party Presidential Primary. Candidate Joseph R. Biden, Jr. received 620 votes, at roughly 72% of the total; Bernie Sanders received 108 votes; Michael R. Bloomberg received 33 votes; Elizabeth Warren received 21 votes; and Pete Buttigieg received 10 votes.In Adams County, 3,400 (63.06%) of 5,392 Republican Party-registered voters cast their ballots in the Republican Party Presidential Primary. The sole candidate, incumbent President Donald J. Trump, received 3,102 votes, with 3,055 votes for Ohio 2nd Congressional District delegates.In the U.S. Representative for Ohio’s 2nd Congressional District race, Democratic Party candidate Jaime M. Castle (D) received 646 votes. Incumbent U.S. Representative Brad Wenstrup (R) received 3,042 votes, and H. Robert Harris (R) received 193 votes.In the State Senator for Ohio’s 14th State Senate District race, Demoratic Party candidate Ryan Ottney (D) received 660 votes. Incumbent State Senator Terry Johnson (R) received 2,894 votes, and David Uible (R) received 283 votes.In this Primary Election, no valid petition was filed by a Democratic Party-registered candidate for the Adams County Commissioner term ending January 2, 2021. According to the unofficial canvass summary report, incumbent Adams County Commissioner Teresa Diane Ward received 1,682 votes, and challenger Dane R. Clark received 1,611 votes. The final (official) count of all provisional and outstanding absentee ballots will determine who has won the election.Adams County Commissioner Teresa Diane Ward has not released a statement on the election results at this time, due to the above circumstances, and awaits the official canvass results.Candidate for Adams County Commissioner Dane R. Clark provided the following statement: “Our entire campaign team ran a great race. I can’t thank the group that supported me and all of the voters enough. I think we had a good platform for the county. Now, we have just got to gather around. We’ve got to forget each others’ agendas, and get behind this – we’ve got to rally Adams County. The clock is ticking. We’ve got to turn Adams County around and make things happen.”When asked if he thought changes to this year’s voting procedures had affected election results, Clark explained: “I don’t think it was good fortune, but I can’t say that it was bad. I will say that for voters at large, the absentee ballot route, with no in-person voting, was probably not the best thing that ever happened. It’s what it was, (but) let’s just hope it doesn’t happen anymore.”In this Primary Election, no valid petition was filed by a Democratic Party-registered candidate for the Adams County Commissioner term ending January 3, 2021. According to the unofficial canvass summary report, incumbent Adams County Commissioner Barbara Moore received 2,157 votes, and challenger Troy L. Dotson received 1,148 votes.Adams County Commissioner Barbara Moore provided the following statement:“I am grateful for the opportunity to continue my service as County Commissioner to the people of Adams County. Adams County faces some challenges but we also have tremendous opportunities. I’ll continue my work standing up for local families and work hard to make a difference. Thanks to the voters that made this victory possible.”In the race for Adams County Clerk of Courts, no valid petition was filed by a Democratic Party registered candidate for the position. Incumbent Adams County Clerk of Courts Larry Heller (R) received 1,932 votes. Challenger Holly Johnson (R) received 783 votes, and challenger Helen Cluxton Williams (R) received 569 votes.Candidate for Adams County Clerk of Courts Holly Johnson issued the following statement to the Defender:“I want to thank all of you that supported and voted for me during this primary election. The citizens of Adams County have always been an inspiration to me that fuels my passion for our county. I will continue to serve you with heart, integrity and vigor. Congratulations, Larry Heller!“Do I think if the election would have happened in March would things be different? We cannot change the outcome. But we can be thankful for the journey and prepare for the future.”Candidate for Adams County Clerk of Courts Helen Cluxton Williams provided this statement:“I would like to thank all my supporters for their votes and help with my campaign. This was my first time running for office, and while there were a few negative points, overall I enjoyed the experience and enjoyed meeting some very good people.”“One negative point in particular, was the amount of money some campaigns spend here at local level. I spent very conservatively and I believe there should be a spending cap on any campaign to level the playing field for people who don’t have $10,000 or more to spend on a primary election. I will be contacting our legislators about this issue.”When asked if she thought changes to this year’s voting procedures had affected election results, Williams explained her concerns regarding the shift to required mail-in (or absentee) voting:“I am concerned about the mail-in voting process. While those who are familiar with the absentee voting process would find it easy, those who have never done it before were frustrated and confused. I spoke with a few voters who tried mail-in voting for the first time. They thought their ballots were on the way because they went to the Ohio Secretary of State website and completed a registration form. These requests were only for the registration forms, not the actual ballot, and those requests were completed online on and before April 15, but they did not receive the form until late or some not at all. Another voter never received a ballot because of an error on his registration form. While I do agree that there needs to be rules regarding the registration forms and absentee voting, this is an example of a voter who did not have the opportunity to vote because in-person voting would have avoided this issue. Other voters who did not receive ballots went to the election office to vote in person, but because of the new mail in voting rules, they were informed there was no in-person voting. Again, these are issues that need to be brought to the attention of our legislators. Overall, I am sure the turnout was influenced by the threat of the virus, many are concerned about their health, employment, and businesses so voting was not at the top of their priorities during this time.”In the race for the position of Adams County Recorder, incumbent Recorder Mark A. Tolle (D) received 772 votes, and challenger Chris Moore (R) received 2,425 votes.Candidate for Adams County Recorder Chris Moore provided the following statement:“I am very excited with the support of my candidacy for County Recorder in this primary election. The results clearly show a desire for a new generation of leadership in the County Recorder’s office and I represent the conservative values that Adams County residents deserve. Over the coming months, I’ll be talking to voters one on one about the changes I plan to make in the office and how we can better serve the people of Adams County.”In the village of West Union, a proposed tax levy to fund firefighting and emergency medical services (EMS) at a rate of 3.5 mills for a duration of five years was put to a vote, but did not pass. Of 445 total votes cast, 154 were for (in support of) the levy, and 264 were against the levy.To view the complete unofficial results of the 2020 Primary Election in Adams County, complete with vote counts, visit the Adams County Board of Elections’ website.

Innovative Energy Systems’ Landfill l Gas Plants

first_img Previous articlePE Volume 109 Issue 6Next articlePower generation GT market to top $118bn through 2014 chloecox Facebook Optimizing Plant Performance: The April POWERGEN+ series activates today IES also practices preventive maintenance. The LFG plant personnel perform oil changes and engine tune-ups every 1,800 hours. If operational records indicate that any engine part has shown considerable wear, a maintenance schedule is set up to replace the part and send it to the shop for rebuild prior to failure. Candidate parts include the engine water pumps, waste gates, after-cooler cores and engine starters. Twitter Innovative Energy Systems’ Landfill l Gas Plants By chloecox – Ex-New York power market CEO named interim ERCOT CEO 6.1.2005 “Each of the landfills where our plants are located are permitted for at least 18 more years of waste delivery and will operate for another 20 years after that,” said Peter Zeliff, IES president and CEO. “For 2004, we had an online availability of 99.2 percent and a capacity factor of 96 percent. Our average cost to produce power was 2.1 cents/kWh.” All the IES plants function as merchant facilities and sell into the day-ahead wholesale energy market. In 2005, IES is selling 12 MW into the NEPOOL market. The rest of the production is sold into NYISO. As a qualifying renewable energy facility, IES generates renewable energy credits (RECs) that investor-owned utilities can purchase to meet renewable production obligations. The majority of IES’ RECs are under contract to Massachusetts and Connecticut utility companies, but an excess typically exists, which IES now sells into New York. “We were the first to move energy across New York State and into an adjacent control area,” said Zeliff. “No one had done this before, so it took some time to wade through all the red tape. For 2005, however, all of our excess RECs are contracted into NEPOOL.” IES has worked with Conservation Services Group to facilitate the REC trades. CSG identified partners, worked with the state and the Independent System Operator to handle imports, and resolved regulatory and legal issues so IES could enhance the value of their assets.  IES has come a long way. Its first plant, Seneca Energy, was developed as a PURPA facility, with the energy sold at the utility’s avoided cost (an average of 2.2 cents/kWh). In 2004, IES’ three plants averaged 4.9 cents/kWh for the energy sold into the wholesale market and another 4.8 cents/kWh for the RECs. Twitter Facebook Because of the variability in landfill gas quality, gas clean-up is a top priority. “Most LFG plants use air over-coolers and coalescing filters to remove water and acids from the gas,” said Zeliff. “We clean the gas using a proprietary low-pressure refrigeration and absorption process that has enabled us to achieve double the engine life between major overhauls compared with the industry average.” A key challenge at LFG plants is dealing with siloxanes in the landfill gas. Siloxanes are gaseous silicone compounds that can form silicone deposits in the combustion cylinder. Catalytic converters can’t be used in LFG applications because the silicone in the exhaust will coat the catalyst material within 24 hours, rendering it useless. Tight control of the air-to-fuel ratio, therefore, is essential in keeping emissions below regulated levels. IES has developed an automatic air-to-fuel ratio controller that maintains a lean combustion environment, ensuring emission compliance. The controller also enables IES to compensate for the varying heat content of the landfill gas, which can fluctuate between 350 Btu/ft3 and 600 Btu/ft3. O&M Click here to enlarge image The Seneca Energy II landfill gas plant in Waterloo, N.Y., houses 14 Caterpillar 3516 engines. Linkedin The IES landfill plants are staffed eight hours per day. The computer system controls the plants when staff is not present and alerts staff if a problem arises when unmanned. All IES personnel are trained to operate the power plant and also to monitor and adjust the landfill gas collection system. If the oxygen content of the landfill gas begins to rise in a particular well, for example, air is likely being drawn into that well, which could lead to spontaneous combustion. The operators monitor the gas collection system using a handheld gas analyzer and adjusting throttling valves at the well-heads. Linkedin IES currently operates three LFG plants in New York. Seneca Energy II, which came online in March 1996, houses 14 Caterpillar 3516 engines and is rated at 11.2 MW. Model City Energy, online in June 2001, houses seven Caterpillar 3516 engines and is rated at 5.6 MW. The Ontario County facility, online in August 2003, houses seven Caterpillar 3516 engines and is rated at 5.6 MW. Expansions in 2005 at Seneca Energy and Model City will add four Caterpillar 3520 engines to each location, raising capacity by 4.8 MW. Two new sites in Rodman and Cohoes, N.Y., will add another 4.8 MW each. Only the Model City facility operates in cogeneration mode – a greenhouse receives 31 MMBtu/hr of hot water – but greenhouses are slated for development at the remaining LFG facilities in 2006 and 2007. “Our biggest challenge today is keeping up with the markets for the commodities sold from the power plants,” said Zeliff. “The wholesale market under deregulation is in its early stages and the market is changing on a daily basis. Being able to stay one step ahead of the market has become a full time job in itself. The REC market will be around for a while, but the prices received for RECs will drop dramatically over time. We built the company without any assumed REC income, so we know we can operate in a market with energy sales only.” p RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR There are nearly 400 landfill gas (LFG) power plants in operation in the United States, with nearly 100 more at some stage of development or construction. Innovative Energy Systems (IES), an LFG facility owner and operator based in Oakfield, N.Y., is on the leading edge of LFG commercialization and is taking advantage of emerging renewable energy credit markets to further enhance profitability.

E.ON gets green light for Spanish acquisitions

first_img Facebook E.ON is seeking to acquire control of Viesgo and Endesa Europa, and of certain minor activities of Endesa in Spain. Viesgo is the Spanish subsidiary of Italy’s Enel, which is active in the generation, distribution and supply of electricity in Spain. Endesa Europa, meanwhile, is a subsidiary of Spanish energy firm Endesa that comprises Endesa’s European activities outside Spain, particularly in France, Italy, Turkey and Poland. Linkedin Through the proposed transaction, E.ON also intends to acquire a certain number of Endesa’s electricity assets in Spain, including drawing rights over 450 MW of nuclear-generated electricity under a 10-year supply agreement, three power plants with a combined installed capacity of approximately 1475 MW and a combined cycle gas turbine plant currently under development with a planned capacity of 800 MW TAGSEnel 8.7.2007 Uzbekistan 1.5-GW gas-fired plant orders 2 M701JAC turbines Kiewit close to completing 625-MW Hill Top CCGT plant in PA E.ON does not carry out activities in Spain, where Viesgo is active and where the Endesa businesses are located. Therefore, the only overlap would occur between the Endesa businesses and Viesgo on the market for electricity generation and wholesale. Linkedin 7 August 2007 – The European Commission has approved E.ON’s acquisition of Spanish company Viesgo, which is currently controlled by Enel, and certain activities currently belonging to Endesa. After examining the operation, the commission concluded that the proposed transaction would not significantly impede effective competition in the European Economic Area or any substantial part of it. Facebook GasCombined Cycle The proposed transaction would also lead to the creation of some vertical relationships in France, Italy and Poland, where Endesa Europa has generation assets and E.ON has gas retail supply activities. However, in light of E.ON’s negligible market shares in these three member states, the proposed transaction is not likely to have anti-competitive effects at a vertical level, the commission concluded. E.ON gets green light for Spanish acquisitions No posts to display Twitter The commission’s examination of the proposed takeover confirmed that the parties have limited overlapping activities in the electricity markets in France, Italy, Germany and Poland. The proposed transaction is not likely to create competitive concerns in any of these countries as the combined entity would have very limited market shares and would face competition from other significant players.

Ty Dillon: Team owner put neck ‘out on the chopping board’ for me

first_imgLONG POND, Pa. – Ty Dillon was still smiling as he walked into the Pocono Raceway media center early Friday morning.The good vibes come after a near-miss winning in the Dover, Delaware, race last Sunday. Dillon led 27 laps – his previous best this season was three laps out front at Talladega (Alabama). And he held the point with 40 laps remaining before pit stop strategy mixed up the lineup and a massive pileup in overtime sealed his fate – a 14th-place finish.“We come down pit road and my pit crew brings us out first,” Dillon, 25, recalled. “That was pretty cool.  That was a really big win for them to beat a team that has won seven championships with a driver [Jimmie Johnson] who is the best there is here in NASCAR.  To come off pit road first for a team like ours at Germain Racing was huge. That was just big enough.“I just watched my brother (Ausin Dillon) win one (at Charlotte) on fuel mileage.  So, I was thinking, ‘Let’s back-to-back this thing, it could happen.’”RELATED: Ty Dillon: ‘We can run up front with the big boys’And while things are going well for the Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate Dillon in the present, there remain questions about his Cup future – primarily, will he join his brother Austin at his grandfather, Richard Childress’ team in 2018?“You know that is not anything I’m prepared to talk about right now,” Dillon said. “My main focus is on Germain Racing. That is where I’m at and you know they have done a lot for me. … It’s definitely not my focus right now. I feel like now, I’ve gotten to where I want to be in the Cup Series and wherever my career goes from here it will go, but right now I’m focused on racing the No. 13 car for Germain Racing.”Dillon specifically reiterated his loyalty and gratitude to team owner Bob Germain.“Bob took a big chance on me,” Dillon said. “So, he is somebody that means a lot to me and this opportunity means a lot to me. So, that is special to me. When somebody puts their neck out on the chopping board for you, you always respect him.”Dillon looked confident and sounded optimistic on stage discussing his recent good fortune. He remains hopeful to be a part of the Sunoco Rookie of the Year championship mix and is ranked third among the five rookie candidates.Joe Gibbs Racing driver Daniel Suarez leads Furniture Row Racing’s Erik Jones, 147-130 in the rookie standings. Dillon is on Jones’ heels with 126 points. Corey LaJoie (98) and Gray Gaulding (94) round out the class.“I think we just had to prove it to ourselves and prove it to other people that we were a strong team,” Dillon said. “We did that for sure. We got out front, led quite a few laps, probably more than anybody imagined we would.”last_img read more

Happy Birthday, Duane Allman: Butch Trucks, Jaimoe, More Reflect On His Legacy [Videos]

first_imgButch Trucks Reflects On Duane Allman’s Lifelong Influence[Video: Music Masters Collective]Rest in Peace, Duane (and Butch).[Originally published 11/20/16] Today (November 19th) would have been the 74th birthday of late guitarist Duane Allman.With only 24 years of life, Duane Allman contributed a legacy beyond just co-founding the Allman Brothers Band. A true pioneer of slide guitar, and an avid session musician for many (including Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Otis Rush, Eric Clapton, and countless others), Duane was taken too soon in a motorcycle accident nearly fifty years ago.From Muscle Shoals to Capricorn Records, the southern-rock guitar hero brought his southern rock roots to the R&B scene on recordings like Wilson Pickett’s version of ‘Hey Jude’, Boz Scaggs’ ‘Loan Me A Dime’, and, most-notably, lays down the illustrious final solo in Derek and The Dominos ‘Layla’. No one played guitar like “Skydog” did.“He has had probably the greatest impact on my life of anyone I have ever known,” former ABB bandmate Butch Trucks told Live For Live Music in a 2015 interview. “Have you heard the story about the day he reached into me and turned me on? If it wasn’t for that moment of epiphany I would have spent my life teaching math in some high school. That’s ok, but I’ll take the life I’ve had any day. Duane was the type of person who, once you met him, changed you for the better. I’ve never met anyone so powerful and positive. I still, after 45 years, have dreams that I run into him somewhere. There is a piece of me that will never let him go.”Related: Duane Allman’s 1957 Gibson Les Paul Played On “Layla” Sells For $1.25 Million At AuctionIn memory of Duane Allman, hear some of these great stories on how he affected the lives of many…Jaimoe, Tommy Talton, & Scott Boyer Wish Duane Allman A Happy Birthday[Video: The Big House Museum]Dickey Betts on Duane Allman[Video: Devon Strolovitch]Muscle Shoals Session Drummers Roger Hawkins & David Hood Describe Duane Allman’s Early Days[Video: LuckieVideos] Boz Scaggs Talks Beginning Of The Allman Brothers Band[Video: moogisvideo]last_img read more
