Rev. Robert Estill at the Diocese of North Carolina’s 201st Annual Convention. Photo: Diocese of North Carolina[Diocese of North Carolina] The Rt. Rev. Robert Whitridge Estill, the ninth bishop of North Carolina, died on Oct. 9 in Raleigh, North Carolina, surrounded by his family.Born Sept. 7, 1927, in Lexington, Kentucky, to parents Robert and Elizabeth, Estill witnessed nine decades of history. He put his time to excellent use and was a talented raconteur, always ready with a story about one of his adventures to regale friends and strangers alike. An advocate for those marginalized by the church, Estill served his beloved Episcopal Church with vision and warmth.“Bishop Estill was an exemplary leader who always lived fully and faithfully into his vocation as a servant of God and of God’s people,” the Rt. Rev. Sam Rodman, bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina, said. “He was a man of character who also had a gift for caricature. His cartoons captured the human foibles we all share, as well as a delight in the ways we live and love imperfectly, as agents of God’s grace. Bishop Estill’s humor was never more disarming than when he turned it on himself, which he often did.”“Bob Estill had the strength of prophetic leadership wrapped in the old-fashioned charms of a Southern gentleman,” the Rt. Rev. Anne Hodges-Copple, bishop suffragan of the Diocese of North Carolina, said. “He took his role as defender of the faith seriously while also taking himself and the politics of the church lightly. He had a wicked sense of humor that could zing as well as disarm. Best of all was that he could laugh at himself while remaining steadfast in serving God and the church.”After receiving his Bachelor of Arts at the University of Kentucky in 1949, Estill went on to earn his Bachelor of Divinity at Episcopal Divinity School in 1952 and later in life his Master of Sacred Theology (1960), Doctor of Ministry (1979) and Doctor of Divinity (1984) from Sewanee, the University of the South. He was ordained to the diaconate and the priesthood in 1952 by the Rt. Rev. William R. Moody, bishop of Lexington. On June 17, 1950, Estill wed Joyce Haynes, with whom he would share a 69-year marriage.Estill’s service to the church began in his native Kentucky, where he served at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Middlesboro (1952-1955), Christ Church in Lexington (1955-1963) and Christ Church Cathedral in Louisville (1964-1969). He then served in the D.C. area for several years as the rector of St. Alban’s Parish (1969-1973) and a faculty member at Virginia Theological Seminary (1971-1976) before moving to Dallas, Texas, to serve as the rector of St. Michael’s and All Angels (1976-1980). From there he was elected bishop coadjutor of the Diocese of North Carolina in 1980. He succeeded the Rt. Rev. Thomas Fraser as the ninth bishop of North Carolina on Jan. 27, 1983, when he was consecrated by the Most Rev. John M. Allen. He served as bishop until his retirement in 1994.As bishop, Estill sought to deepen and extend the ordained ministry of the church through a commitment to clergy continuing education, active encouragement of aspirants for Holy Orders, support for the ordination of women and the revival of the diaconate in this diocese. At the time of his retirement in 1994, he could look with justifiable satisfaction at the growth during his episcopate in the number of clergy resident in the diocese, including an additional 50 female clergy and 22 deacons.“When Estill was still a priest in the Diocese of Dallas, he was an early and often lonely voice in support of women in lay and ordained ministry,” Hodges-Copple said. “He licensed my mother to be a lay chalice bearer at the Episcopal School of Dallas, a bold move in the early eighties that caused some to resign from the board of trustees. I chose to do my discernment process in the Diocese of North Carolina because I knew under Bishop Estill’s leadership I could just be my full and honest self without needing to defend women’s equality in general.”Estill also sought to strengthen diocesan institutions and to honor long-standing mission commitments. He was a strong proponent of youth, campus and social ministries. A capital campaign conducted in the 1980s enabled the diocese to expand the facilities of the Camp & Conference Center.In addition to his service to The Episcopal Church as priest and bishop, Estill also served as the chair of the Kentucky Human Rights Commission for 31 years and on the board of trustees of General Theological Seminary. He taught at Duke Divinity School, presided over the North Carolina Council of Churches, and chaired the Episcopal Church Board of Theological Education and the board of Kanuga Camp and Conference Center. He was also the author of “The Sun Shines Bright,” a memoir published in 2017.“There was a graciousness to him that made one feel as though there was room to be yourself in his presence, a generous spirit that always left me feeling more sure of God’s love,” Rodman said. “In addition to our occasional visits, it was a great gift, recently, to be invited to celebrate with him a Sunday service that he offered faithfully once a month to the residents of Cypress Residential Community, where he and Joyce made their home. His devotion to God and to God’s people was his constant focus, and in this he embodied what it means to be faithful.”Estill is survived by his wife, Joyce, their three children, Helen Estill Foote, Robert W. Estill, Jr. and Elizabeth Estill Robertson, six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.Funeral services will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 11 a.m. in the sanctuary of Christ Church, 120 E. Edenton St., Raleigh, NC.Correction: An earlier version of this obituary included an error in the list of churches where Estill served.

State House tax holidays: Clothing, snorkels, school supplies, disaster prevention items,…

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here A multi-million-dollar tax package approved by the House Ways & Means Committee on Friday includes everything from a “Freedom Week” sales tax holiday and a big batch of sales tax exemptions — but no exemption for diapers.What’s considered the family-friendly state House didn’t want to include diapers in the mix of items that exempt state sales taxes in certain periods in Florida. (The exemptions also can include county discretionary sales surtaxes.)What’s up with diapers?For the proposed 2021-22 sales tax exemptions, diapers became a discussion when Orlando State Rep. Anna Eskamani, a Democrat, tried to include the baby item into the major tax package, by proposing a short amendment.Anyone who has had a baby, or has had to change a baby’s bottom, would know that diapers are essential and costly for moms and dads and particularly for low-income families. “The need is really there,” said Eskamani. She added that adult diapers would be included as well.State Rep. Bobby Payne, chair of the Ways & Means Committee, suggested that a diaper sales tax exemption could be included in a separate piece of legislation in the future.And in the end, Eskamani withdrew her amendment, saying she didn’t want to force a vote on the issue at this time. Eskamani is the ranking Democrat on the committee.Meanwhile, the committee voted 15 to 1 on the massive package, with only Eskamani in opposition. The full House and Senate, and ultimately, Gov. Ron DeSantis, would have to approve the package for it to become law.Some of the State tax holidays proposed for 2021The package includes several sales tax holidays, such as a seven-day “back to school” holiday from August 6 through 12 — an exemption for items $60 or less for items ranging from clothing and footwear to wallets and handbags, as well as school supplies that cost $15 or less per item, according to the House analysis on the tax package.A “disaster preparedness” sales tax holiday” would go from May 28 through June 3, 2021. The sales exemptions in that category include items such as a portable self-powered radio or a gas or diesel fuel tank.A “freedom week” sales tax holiday would go from July 1 through 7, allowing sales tax exemptions for admissions and recreational activities such as live music and sporting events.That’s just some of the sales tax exemptions. The House analysis calculates that the estimated tax exemptions will cost at least $100-million, based on state and local figures.

Dancing in the streets

first_imgTaken from a Nov. 8 audio column on American president loses his hard-fought reelection bid, and within moments, the streets are full of people, who are beyond exultant: they are singing, they are dancing – dancing in the streets!I’ve never seen such a thing, nor was it expected.The end of the Trump regime was within sight and people in Philadelphia, New York City, Wilmington, Del., in San Francisco — and right outside the White House in Washington, D.C. — exploded into the streets, expressing paroxysms of purest joy.What could it mean?I think it reflected the heaviness of state repression, the aura of threat and intimidation being lifted, and the psyche sought expression.People felt like they could breathe again, sing again, and even dance again.As soon as I saw it, I thought of the song “Dancing in the Streets” by Martha [Reeves] and the Vandellas, a song popular in the ‘60s.“Dancing in the streets!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Is Indiana Agriculture Ready for Climate Change?

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Is Indiana Agriculture Ready for Climate Change? Facebook Twitter Speaking at the Governor’s Conference on Agriculture last week, Page said that, along with problems that climate change will bring, there are new opportunities for agriculture, “At Cargill, we have people growing us corn in hot dry regions of the world. We can bring that kind of production to the Midwest if needed.” He noted, if the weather changes the way some predict, farmers in Indiana will be able to grow crops year round and even grow new varieties, “It is not about inventing new technologies, but adapting and relocating current technologies to new areas if the weather changes.”  In addition, he said areas in Northern Canada that have not been good for row crop production could bring millions of new acres into canola and other grain production. Greg_Page_But Greg Page, head of Cargill, one of the largest food companies in the world, says American farmers have the technology to adapt to climate change. “We already have much of what we need in place,” said Page. “We have the scientific base in place, and we have the University and Extension systems in place and focused on this issue.” He told HAT what we need to avoid is slowing down our efforts, “If weather extremes become more prevalent, we need to make sure our research is ready.” He said it is not about acquiring a new skill or technology, but about accelerating  what we already have.

Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleSouthern Indiana Pork Conference set for Jasper Gary Truitt In this State of the Union message, President Obama raised the issue of Climate Change and said America must take action to prepare for weather changes in the future. Is Indiana agriculture ready to adjust to the weather changes that may be coming? One expert says “Yes.” SHARE On Thursday, EPA administrator Gina McCarthy will hold a press conference in Aspen, CO to draw attention to the economic impact of weather extremes. Extremes she says are coming as a result of climate change.  Colders winter and hotter summers, the experts say, will wreak devastation on US food production, especially here in the Midwest. Is Indiana Agriculture Ready for Climate Change? Page said agriculture needs to approach climate change in a balanced and scientific manner, “The idea that all change is bad change is not a take away people should have.” He said there are plenty of reasons to believe that we can adapt to whatever change might be coming. Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jan 21, 2015 SHARE In addition, the EPA is currently proposing regulations that would significantly raise the cost of energy in Indiana. Governor Pence has vowed to fight that kind of reaction to climate change, “The State of Indiana is going to stay in the forefront of fighting for common sense regulatory policies that protect farmers and agribusiness.”last_img read more

Dr. Arthur Ehlmann, 89, died unexpectedly Aug. 19, after having spent the morning looking at a new meteorite, Dr. Ken Morgan wrote in an obituary for the Star-Telegram. Ehlmann taught geology students at TCU for 45 years before retiring in 1993. In 1977, Ehlmann was awarded Honors Professor of the Year.His pursuit of education didn’t end at retirement. He continued working as a volunteer curator for the Oscar E. Monnig Meteorite Collection. Ehlmann helped bring the collection to TCU through his longtime friendship with Monnig. He also acted as a mentor for students as an emeritus professor.Family and friends sign a picture of Ehlmann at the reception following the memorial on Monday. (Photo by Kayley Ryan)Former students established the Arthur J. Ehlmann Scholarship to honor his impact on their lives.Denise Stone was the only former student to speak at Ehlmann’s memorial. She said she took his freshman geology class—and liked it so much she changed her major to geology.“He had a true gift for educating people…fighting superstition and ignorance,” Stone said.Stone spoke about Ehlmann’s no-nonsense teaching style, drawing laughter from memorial attendees.“He hated the question ‘is that going to be on the test?’” Stone said. “He told his students, ‘People that want to be educated soak up all kinds of knowledge, whether it’s on a test or not.’”1986 TCU alumnus Keith Albright said Ehlmann was an inspiration to him, especially on geology field trips when Ehlmann would pull a van full of students to a halt in the middle of the wilderness.Rocks decorated the reception area where memorial attendees gathered at the Oscar E. Monnig Meteorite Collection. (Photo by Kayley Ryan)“‘What is it? Describe it,’” Ehlman would say as he pointed to a rocky outcropping and asked his students to identify it.“He really set the bar in each person he dealt with to make them the best they could be,” Albright said. “I’m just happy to have known him.”Colleagues and students alike characterized Ehlmann as, “the king of geology,” pointing to Ehlmann’s lifelong pursuit of education in his field.“He gave 60 years of his life,” Morgan said about Ehlmann’s time as a professor, department chair and emeritus professor at TCU. “I mean, who does that?”Ehlmann’s work ethic was contagious, Morgan said.“He made me want to come to work every single day,” he said.Dr. Leo Newland, also an emeritus professor at TCU, knew Ehlmann for 49 years.Newland, Ehlmann and chemistry professor Dr. Bill Koehler were close friends throughout their time at TCU. Newland said Ehlmann’s plainspoken nature drew Koehler and Newland to him.“I hope they remember him just for the very honest and straightforward person that he was,” Newland said. “He was a very giving person and would do anything to help you if you were sincere.”But Ehlmann wasn’t all business.
