30 years of cooling (to 1980 or so) then 30 years warming They use the data on the warming half of one cycle, and call it "long term". They need 50 cycles, not one half of one cycle ... dishonest arses. They know damn well they start at the end of a long cooling period, yet don't account for it, and usual only a straight line linear regression for their argument, which hides the last 18 years…

"The rest of Taylor’s article is just whitewash intended to distract readers from these facts." So these guys are mind readers, not scientists? They can read his intent? Or they are using personal attacks when they don't have facts on their side? I think the U of I boyz are the ones spinning here. Taylor notes this short time range ... readings from 1979 are not "long term" when it…

Al Gore is an idiot. There's no denying that. For the record, I bet Taylor understands the data just fine. That's how he knows where to cherry-pick.

For one, he's not explaining to the reader that there's a difference between polar ice cap extent and polar ice cap volume. People monitoring global warming are less concerned with polar ice extent than they are with the total amount of ice. Take a peek at the declining volume in the Arctic: "April 2015 volume was 26% below the maximum April ice volume in 1979 and 13% below the 1979-2014…

Havermale discusses Ambulance Service, funding

2 years, 6 months ago by Denise Donley

3rd Ward Alderman Paul Havermale is on the Adams County Ambulance Board and discussed the issues on WTAD's Mary Griffith Show

At the November 13 Adams County Board meeting, $57,100 of funding was restored to the Adams County Ambulance Service’s budget.

A lot of discussion at the board meeting had to do with the addition of the sixth ambulance, as well as the deficit the Service has been running.

 3rd Ward Alderman Paul Havermale is on the Adams County Ambulance Board and discussed the Ambulance Services Wednesday morning on WTAD's Mary Griffith Show.

Response times are critical, and Havermale discussed the location of the ambulances.

“It may be more critical to have the ambulances out in the county, but if you put it on the business model, but you don’t put your lemonade stands on a non-busy corner,” said Havermale. “If you’re going to operate as a business, then the calls are in Quincy. The folks in the county have an ambulance line item on their property taxes just as I do as a city resident.”

The County Board also voted 11-9 for the Ambulance Service to increase the amount it could levy by $200,000 to $700,000.

When asked if Havermale favors a tax increase to keep funding this sixth ambulance and continuing to improve response standard, he said “I believe that the budget request we put in as a board and as a service is what we need to operate and nothing more. If the county board and the finance committee feel that the only way to fund that request is a tax levy increase then yes, I would have to support that. It could be we have a budget approval but no way to fund it.”

The County Board is voting on the proposed levy at their December meeting.
