first_img WhatsApp Economic impact of Big Ten announcement worries Bloomington, West Lafayette Facebook (“PURDUE UNIVERSITY” by taki Lau, CC BY-SA 2.0) Tourism officials in Indiana are weighing in on what the loss of fall sports means for the state.The Big 10 announced the cancellation of fall sports, including football, on Tuesday. Inside Indiana Business reports that the announcement was expected by officials in Bloomington and West Lafayette, who count on the millions of dollars that pour into the local economy during the I-U and Purdue football seasons.Hotels, restaurants and bars will miss out on roughly 40 thousand additional customers that would have come to town during home game weekends.They say the impact is felt more deeply in the two communities, because they are smaller than other Big Ten towns.

Board decides to go slow on first appearance amendment

first_imgBoard decides to go slow on first appearance amendment Board decides to go slow on first appearance amendment Gary Blankenship Senior Editor Confronted with a new rule amendment on first appearance bonds and a new procedure for getting some amendments quickly to the Supreme Court, the Bar Board of Governors wasn’t sure it liked either.The board at its October 21 meeting in Palm Coast voted to delay its consideration of the amendments to Criminal Procedural Rules 3.131, 3.132, and 3.790 until December. In the meantime, it will inform the Fast Track Subcommittee of the Criminal Procedure Rules Committee of the delay, and invite the subcommittee to make any further changes or recommendations it feels are needed.The Bar will also inform the Supreme Court of the delay by letter. If the court indicates it wants the rules before December, then the Bar Executive Committee will prepare a response, Bar President Alan Bookman said, consulting with board members who practice criminal law.After an extensive debate, board members said they didn’t know enough to offer comments on the rule — which had been submitted to the board only four days before the meeting — and had concerns about a procedure that left them in that position.“Not doing criminal work, I don’t think we’ve heard enough [to act],” board member Carl Schwait.Board member Tim Sullivan agreed: “What we are going to share with the [fast track] subcommittee is there were concerns by some members of the board. We want to hear the other side.”“It’s a very far-reaching change,” said board member David Rothman, who introduced Ann Finnell of the Fast Track Subcommittee, who presented the rule amendment. “I have not seen rules that do this before.”Finnell said the subcommittee took up the first appearance rule as a result of the Supreme Court’s June 30 rulings in State v. Raymond, SC03-1263, and in In Re: Florida Rules Of Criminal Procedure 3.131 and 3.132, case no. OR-SC05-739. The court declared unconstitutional a statute on first appearance bonds. In that invalidated law, legislators mandated that nonmonetary bonds be denied at first appearances for defendants accused of violent crimes that resulted in a third degree felony or greater charges.The court said the law unconstitutionally infringed on the court’s rule-making authority, and sent the matter to the Fast Track Subcommittee to recommend how the law could be implemented.Finnell said the subcommittee, faced with an August 29 deadline, merely took the stricken statutory provisions and grafted them into the rules.“We are trying to respond and be responsive to the Supreme Court. We are not saying this is a good rule or a bad rule,” Finnell told the board. “We are merely trying to write language that will provide implementation of a statute.“We are not putting our seal of approval on it at all.. . . This is a procedure we thought would implement this statute if the Supreme Court wanted to adopt it.”Bar Executive Director John F. Harkness, Jr., reminded the board that it cannot amend, reject, or delay the submissions to the court of amendments from rules committees. It can only offer its comments or suggest changes to the rules committees.He also explained that the fast track process was set up by the court three years ago to get around the frequent year or two delay of conforming procedural rules to laws passed by the legislature. The fast track subcommittees of the various procedural rules committees are charged with reviewing legislative actions each year and making recommendations accordingly.Rothman noted that currently anyone arrested is entitled to a first appearance before a judge within 24 hours. The law would mean no nonmonetary bonds for those charged with serious violent crimes. Finnell said normally after an arrest, the state attorney must file charges within 21 days, which triggers another court appearance and bond opportunity, but in practice that next appearance may take longer.Some board members said the statute and rule were unfair to the indigent because those with means who are charged with violent crimes would still be able to post bond at the first hearing, but that opportunity would be denied to the poor. Others said they understood that objection, but wanted to hear from the other side before acting.The board eventually approved two motions. The first by board member Grier Wells asked the Criminal Procedure Rules Committee to reconsider the rule language and clarify if amendments were approved by the fast-track subcommittee only or by the full committee.The second motion, from board member Ervin Gonzalez, advised the Fast Track Subcommittee that the board had not had the opportunity to review the amendments and would take them up at its December meeting.

Matric pass rate improves to 70.2%

first_img5 January 2012 70.2% of the matriculants who sat for the 2011 National Senior Certificate examinations at South Africa’s state schools passed their exams – a 2.4 percentage point increase on the previous year’s pass rate of 67.8%. “I am pleased to announce that the national pass rate for the Class of 2011 is 70.2%,” Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga said on Wednesday evening, describing the progress as encouraging. “South Africa congratulates the Class of 2011.” In total, 496 090 candidates sat for their exams in 2011, compared to 537 543 candidates in 2010, while 80 116 part-time students wrote their exams. 24.3% of Grade 12 learners qualified for Bachelors’ studies – an increase from the year before, when the figure was 23.5%. A total of 104 033 matrics passed mathematics and a further 96 441 passed physical science.Improvement in science, concern over maths The department was pleased with the improved performance in science, while remaining concerned about the number of passes in maths, 46.3% compared to 2010’s 47.4%. Motshekga said the department would focus on a strategy to improve the pass rate in science and maths in 2012. There was also a drop in the pass rate for economics, due to learners having difficulty with questions based on contemporary economic issues. The department is also expected to focus on improving the participation of girl pupils and helping schools to improve pupils’ subject choices, working with partners from the private sector. Among South Africa’s nine provinces, the Western Cape registered the highest pass rate in 2011, at 82.9%, followed by Gauteng at 81.1%. The Eastern Cape had the lowest pass rate at 58.1%.‘Still a long way to go’ The minister acknowledged that there was still a long way to go to eradicate inequity, and that the results of the 2011 Annual National Assessments (ANA) were generally unfavourable. She said the department knew where the problems were and would refine the ANA. Learners in grades 1 to 6 and grade 9 will write the 2012 ANA in September, with the national ANA results to be announced in December. “We congratulate the Class of 2011 for a job well done, particularly those who performed exceptionally well,” Motshekga said. “Some of you may be disappointed with your results. There are many options open to you to improve your results. Try again, don’t give up now.” The exams were incident-free and proceeded without significant problems. “This goes to show the maturity of our examination system,” Motshekga said. The department’s director-general, Bobby Soobrayan, said the results were evidence of intervention programmes introduced by the department. “This is evidence of a maturing system; teachers have come to grips with the curriculum,” Soobrayan said. “The Class of 2011 was smaller than the Class of 2010, which shows that it’s a system searching for equilibrium,” Soobrayan added.
