The workshops will take place during the month of May, traditionally known as Elder Law Month, and are designed to educate groups of 50-100 people on advance directives. These presentations will run approximately one hour long with a brief question and answer period to follow. Topics of discussion will include: • What is an advance directive? • How advance directives assure that your preferences for medical treatment will be honored. • How to designate someone to make your medical decisions in the event you become incapacitated and are unable to do so. • Resources for creating advance directives. Presenters for these workshops will be elder law attorneys from Elder Law Section. In addition to the general public, social workers, geriatric care mangers, hospital case managers, support coordinators, and other health care professionals who deal with the elder and handicapped populations are encourage to attend. “With increased public awareness of the need for advance directives, due to the high profile Schiavo case last year, the Elder Law Section of The Florida Bar believes that these educational workshops will deliver an important and timely message,” said section Chair Stephanie L. Schneider. Relations with CPAs panel Miami attorney Benedict P. Kuehne has won a runoff race for an 11th Circuit seat on The Florida Bar Board of Governors.

Or maybe it was just Shelly Hansel thinking she could be like President Obama and make decisions on her own.. Humm, sounds like Wellington politics to me. Report Reply 1 reply · active 317 weeks ago +7 Vote up Vote down Guest · 317 weeks ago Perhaps, more to the point, the board is evaluating what went right and what went wrong before making a policy decision. That is the way to go about this–along with citizen input. Maybe they should get some information from cities that hold parades regularly and include horses, Shriners and various dance teams and bands. Advice from the Rose Parade or city of New Orleans might be beneficial.

That’s why we have police and fire to address any emergency slash accidents. We can’t always prevent things from happening but we do have the measures to deal with them in this city. Keep the parade as is but I agree that the route might not have been such a good idea. Thank You Report Reply 0 replies · active 317 weeks ago 123Next » Post a new comment Enter text right here!

It is important to note no decisions have been made, nor will there be any decisions made, until thorough discussion, input and evaluation takes place. The Wheat Festival is a long-standing community tradition and citizen input is encouraged in the decision-making process. At our regularly scheduled board meeting held on Tuesday, July 15, 2014, the Chamber board discussed how to proceed so that everyone including participants, spectators and all involved can move forward from this incident.  Two main things were decided…safety of all involved is the most important thing to be considered.  Secondly, there are many factors that contributed to what happened and all of it needs to be discussed and evaluated before any final decisions or policies are put into place.According to our numbers and feedback from many, the 2014 Kansas Wheat Festival was a tremendous success and the Chamber sincerely appreciates everyone who supported all of the events.  We certainly hope that this one incident won’t define what otherwise is a great community festival. The Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce/CVB Board of Directors & StaffFollow us on Twitter.last_img read more
