iStock/Thinkstock(AUSTIN) — A father of a young girl and a teenage orchestra star were the two victims killed in the package bomb blasts that rocked Austin, Texas.Friends and acquaintances of Anthony Stephan House and Draylen Mason, the man and teenager who were killed in the first and second blasts, are speaking out about their contributions to their community.Two women — one in her 40s and another in her 70s — were injured in the two blasts on March 12, but their names have not been publicly released.Police have residents in Austin, the state’s fourth-biggest city, on alert as they have warned residents to call in any suspicious or unexpected packages for fear of subsequent bombings.Anthony Stephan House, 39The first victim was 39-year-old Anthony Stephan House.Local newspaper The Austin-American Statesman reports that he had an 8-year-old daughter and a graduate of Texas State University.He worked as a project manager for Texas Quarries until February 2017, a spokesperson for the company told ABC News.House was killed an hour after a blast was reported at his home in north Austin at 6:55 a.m. March 2.Police initially ruled the death suspicious, though they have since connected it to the two subsequent blasts that took place at other residences in Austin on March 12.Draylen Mason, 17Friends and associates have described Draylen Mason as a rising star who was active in his community and had a future of music studies ahead of him.Mason stood out in 2013, when then-City Council member Mike Martinez met him after the student won a writing contest with his essay on racial profiling.Martinez posted a picture of him and Mason on Facebook after news of Mason’s death in the first March 12 blast, writing that his essay was “so insightful and mature for such a young man.”Mason was also involved in a youth orchestra program called the Austin Soundwaves, which caters to underserved children in East Austin.Doug Dempster, the dean of the College of Fine Arts and the University of Texas-Austin, said faculty from the school regularly teach in the program, and that he’d “been watching Draylen blossom in the program for the last few years.”“He was a remarkably and precociously talented bass player whose talents developed enough through the program for him to audition into top music schools,” Dempster said in a statement.Dempster said Mason was set to start as a freshman at the Butler School of Music at the University of Texas next year.“The loss of any child is heartbreaking. The loss of a child with such conspicuous ambition, talent and determination is the cruelest kind of heartbreak. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, teachers and fellow students,” he wrote.Austin police said Mason’s mother, whose name they did not publicly disclose, was injured in the blast as well, and is in stable condition at a local hospital.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Angry York residents are lying in wait every night for unsuspecting student revellers, after the University’s Vice-Chancellor has offered a reward for information relating to “rowdy and drunken” student behaviour. Students who are successfully identified by the elderly vigilantes will face a fine of £100, with the possibility of community service and even potential expulsion from campus. The appeal for information sets out a list of “unacceptable student behaviour” including “shouting,” “dancing,” and “riding shopping trolleys at high speeds through residential areas at night.”ARCHIVE: 4th week TT 2003
“I want to thank the General Assembly for working tirelessly on legislation to improve DCS policies and practices so that the agency can serve the right child at the right time in the right way,” said Terry Stigdon, director of DCS.In June 2018, the Child Welfare Policy and Practice Group (CWG) gave DCS a report of 20 recommendations that came after a six-month examination of the department. CWG is a nonprofit organization that works to help children and families by implementing successful systems and practices within organizations.Recommendations from the report included improving the workplace culture, lightening the caseload for employees and increasing pay.Holcomb contracted with CWG after former DCS Director Mary Beth Bonaventura resigned in a letter critical of the administration, saying the agency didn’t have the resources to keep children safe.During the 2019 session, legislators passed two laws that address some of the issues raised in the outside report.Senate Enrolled Act 1, authored by Sen. Erin Houchin, R-Salem, provides more support for foster care families and in-home placement for children.House Enrolled Act 1006, authored by Rep. Greg Steuerwald, R-Avon, extends the age foster children can receive services to 21, expands the definition of neglect and updates the DCS caseload standard to comply with national guidelines.Stigdon said that nearly a year after CWG delivered the final report all 20 of the outlined recommendations are either in progress or have been implemented.Stigdon said the annual turnover rate for family case managers is down nearly 19% due in part to the supplemental funding provided by Holcomb. In 2017, the turnover rate was nearly one in three while the rate dropped to almost one in four in 2018.Last year, Holcomb redirected $25 million from the state’s budget surplus to address some of the DCS issues. And lawmakers increased the DCS budget in the fiscal year 2020 by $243 million and by $223 million in fiscal year 2021 for a yearly allocation of more than $800 million.Holcomb said there have also been improvements in DCS culture, which was described in the CWG report as one of fear. Employees told investigators they were concerned that a single wrong step will bring catastrophic consequences and that their managers won’t have their backs in difficult situations.“What we continue to hear from the back office to the front lines is the culture has improved such that people are truly enjoying, not just seeing these numbers, these good numbers, the results come in, but the way that they’re affecting people’s lives,” he said.Stigdon said another indicator of culture change is people wanting to stay.“We now have family case managers that not only want to stay, but they’re doing the job that they signed up for because they’re caseloads are manageable,” she said. “They can spend time with families and help those families get to where they can be sustainable and healthy. And then we can get out of the way.”As of May 2019, DCS was 99% in compliance with the 12/17 caseload standard compared toJanuary 2018 when they were only 77% compliant. The 12/17 standard says case managers are supposed to have no more than 12 active cases and monitor no more than 17 children.Holcomb said the state has come a long way, but they’re not done.“One tragic case is too many, and we have to be ready to address every single case that comes to us and that’s what we’re doing,” he said. “We’re not shying away from any of these occurrences. We’re leaning into this work.”FOOTNOTE: Abrahm Hurt is a reporter for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalists.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail By Abrahm HurtTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS—Staff turnover is down, caseload sizes are dropping and the ratio of supervisors to case managers has improved in the year since an outside review found numerous shortcomings in the Indiana Department of Child Services.Information and updates about the progress at DCS were shared Thursday when Gov. Eric Holcomb held a ceremonial signing of two child welfare bills passed in the 2019 legislative session that included support for foster care families and aligning with new practices.
By Max Jenvey of Oxxygen Marketing Partnership, a strategic business firm, specialising in the bakery, foodservice and convenience retail sectorsHow easy is it for bakery retailers to introduce promotional activities and develop an annual promotional plan?Our colleagues at him! confirmed that 60% of your customers actively look for sales promotions and meal deals when entering stores (Food to Go Report 2009). And a staggering 30% of customers never saw a promotion while shopping. These statistics beg the question of what are you doing, right now, to capture 90% of your market?Firstly consider well-known sales promotion techniques, such as price discounts, happy hours, buy-one-get-one-free, coupons, sampling, premiums, loyalty cards, link deals or meal deals. Providing you offer a minimum 14% total discount based on the total combined price you can call the offer a promotion. Obviously, you can be more generous, but start small and work your way up. For instance, look at your best-sellers sausage rolls, croissants, pains au chocolat, steak slices, Cornish pasties and link each one with an appropiate item, such as coffee/tea, juice/smoothie, water/carbonate depending on the time of day and meal/snacking occasion. Communicate your offer through clearly price-pointed, product-centric images and posters. Shelf-talkers work especially well at the counter where customers make their final decision.Be sure to offer low, medium and high-value meal deals, which give your customers choice and variety. In turn, you will get increased sales and profits.Remember it’s also about building a relationship with your customers; loyalty is big business and is one of the strongest promotional tools.Choose your promotions carefully, based on your customer research, sales data and buying habits. Break down your sales by product category, season and time of a day. Always ask your customers what they want, too, what are they looking for from your store and how you can better satisfy them.
