Thursday, September 6, 2018Top afternoon stories:Andrew Schneider/Houston Public MediaHouston Mayor Sylvester Turner.Turner kicks off campaign against HFD-HPD pay parityThe battle is heating up over Houston’s Proposition 2, a ballot initiative that would grant firefighters equal pay with police officers of equivalent ranks. Mayor Sylvester Turner opposes the measure. On Wednesday night, he held the first of a dozen town halls to make his case to the voters.Houston firefighters’ pay has risen only 3 percent since 2011. “We have committed to moving the needle so that Houston firefighters don’t start out making $28,000 vs. a Houston police officer making $42,000,” said Marty Lancton, president of the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association.Mayor Turner said the firefighters deserve a raise. But he argues that granting them full parity would amount to a 25 percent salary increase and would cost the city nearly $300 million. That figure would go up if, as expected, the city negotiates a pay raise for police when their contract expires at the end of this year.Lancton disputed Turner’s math. “Nowhere on the petition [for the ballot initiative] does it say anything about a 25 percent pay raise,” said Lancton. “All firefighters have asked for is to be treated fairly and to be treated equally.”JeepersMedia/FlickrLead poisoning can happen when young children eat chipped-off pieces of lead paint.Harris County launches program to prevent lead poisoningHarris County Public Health (HCPH) announced Thursday its new Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP) aimed at reducing lead exposure and poisoning among children in Harris County.According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, 1,016 children had elevated blood lead levels in 2016.The program will provide lead testing at two Harris County WIC locations (Antoine and Shaver), as well as case coordination for children with high levels lead of lead, to identify the lead source and ensure the poisoning discontinues.Additionally, it also entails educational outreach to the public on the dangers and prevention of lead poisoning and information to medical providers on recommendations and requirements for lead testing.It is also creating a database to track, evaluate and monitor county cases. Most families affected by lead poisoning are low-income.Pablo Martinez Monsivais/APHomeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.US plans to sidestep limits on detaining immigrant childrenThe Trump administration said Thursday it plans to circumvent a longstanding court agreement that governs how children are treated in immigration custody, in part to detain families longer as a way to deter migrants from crossing the Southwestern border illegally.The Homeland Security Department announced proposed regulations that would terminate the so-called Flores agreement that requires the government to keep children in the least-restricted setting and required their release generally after 20 days in detention.The 1997 case that spawned the agreement will almost certainly land back in court. U.S. District Court Judge Dolly M. Gee rejected a request by administration lawyers this summer to allow for longer family detention.The agreement became an issue during a “zero-tolerance” policy enforced at the border to criminally prosecute anyone caught crossing illegally.

West Midlands Ambulance Service. Not only could you be hit with a fine, an offence such as running a red light also comes with three penalty points on your licence. According to the Highway Code: “You should look and listen for ambulances, fire engines, police, doctors or other emergency vehicles using flashing blue, red or green lights and sirens, or flashing headlights, or traffic officer and incident support vehicles using flashing amber lights.” Read MoreHow you can be fined £100 for not wearing your seatbelt properly The code says you should stop before the brow of a hill, never mount the kerb, don’t put anyone else in danger and don’t brake harshly. The Blue Light Aware website states: “Of course, there will be times when there simply is no room for an emergency service vehicle to get past, or perhaps its crew are activated by their control room to respond to an emergency while they are waiting with everyone else at the traffic lights. “On these occasions, they know that other motorists are not allowed to ‘jump’ the red light, and the emergency vehicle would ideally not activate its sirens and lights until it was safe for the vehicle in front to cross the solid white line at the junction.

It is an automatic reaction to get out of the way of the people trying to save lives. But did you know in some instances it could land you with a fine? Can you drive into a bus lane, run a red light or stop in a junction box when getting out of the way? According to the Highway Code, you should give way to vehicles with flashing lights – including ambulances, police cars, fire engines and emergency doctors. Read MoreWhy you should keep your car keys in the microwave But if you break the law to let an emergency vehicle through – including moving through a red light or ducking into a bus lane to clear the path – that could mean a fine of up to £1,000, reports Devon Live . Entering a yellow box junction to give a 999 vehicle extra room could also land you in the same trouble. “On the (hopefully) rare occasions that a blue light vehicle, in ’emergency mode’, is sitting behind another vehicle at a red traffic light, it’s important to appreciate that it would be both very dangerous and illegal for the other vehicle to move across the solid white line.”
Categories: Hauck News,News State Rep. Roger Hauck, of Union Township, reflected on Tuesday night’s State of the State address by reiterating the need for lowering Michigan’s out-of-control car insurance rates.The state’s controversial no-fault system forces more than seven million Michigan drivers to pay the highest car insurance rates in the country. A special committee has been formed by Republican leadership in the Michigan House to pursue a solution, with the authority to report legislation directly to the House floor for consideration.“There’s always a lot of topics to dissect and sift through in an address like this, but I was hoping the governor would provide more specifics on how she’ll work to lower these rates,” Hauck said. “The fact remains that our state’s auto insurance setup offers very little choice and continues to take money out of the pockets of hard-working Michigan residents. It’s forcing families and seniors living on fixed incomes into making difficult decisions – one of which is potentially driving uninsured in order to save money. That’s simply ridiculous and a telltale sign of a broken system. We need to come together in this new term to find a meaningful solution.”Hauck is in his second term in the Michigan House representing residents in Isabella County and portions of Midland County. 13Feb Rep. Hauck continues call for affordable car insurance following State of the State address
