New Delhi: Iran had agreed to buy the gas produced from ONGC Videsh Ltd-discovered Farzad-B field in the Persian Gulf, but talks got stalled after the US reimposed sanctions against Tehran. ONGC Videsh Ltd (OVL), the overseas investment arm of state-owned Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC), had in 2008 made a significant natural gas discovery in the Farsi offshore exploration block in the Persian Gulf, the company said in its latest annual report.

During 2018-19, the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) proposed the development of the gas field and “offtake of raw gas by NIOC at landfall point(s),” it said. “However, due to imposition of US sanctions on Iran with effect from 5th November 2018, technical studies could not be concluded which is a precursor for commercial negotiations,” OVL said.

The Exploration Service Contract (ESC) for the over 3,500 sq km Farsi block was signed on December 25, 2002.

The exploration phase of the ESC expired on June 24, 2009.
OTTAWA – The Trudeau government intensified Friday its trade fight with U.S. President Donald Trump, posting an extensive final hit list of $16.6-billion worth of American imports that will be slapped with retaliatory tariffs this weekend.The federal government also released specifics of a financial aid package for industries caught in the crossfire, including up to $2 billion in fresh funding and support for workers in Canada’s steel, aluminum and manufacturing sectors.Ottawa’s unprecedented reprisal against its closest ally comes in response to the Trump administration’s punishing tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum.It begs the question: what comes next? There are preparations for the possibility of a drawn-out and escalating dispute.Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland unveiled the details — including a finished list of the targeted U.S. products — during a news conference at a steel factory in Hamilton.“Canada has no choice but to retaliate with a measured, perfectly reciprocal dollar-for-dollar response — and that is what we are doing,” Freeland said.“They will take effect on July 1 and will remain in place until the United States eliminates its trade-restrictive measures against Canada.”Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apparently reiterated that position to the president himself in a phone call on Friday.A readout of the call released by the prime minister’s office says Trudeau called Trump to express his condolences on a deadly shooting at a newspaper in Maryland this week — but the two leaders also discussed trade.“As he has said in past conversations and in public, the prime minister conveyed that Canada has had no choice but to announce reciprocal countermeasures to the steel and aluminum tariffs that the United States imposed on June 1, 2018,” the readout stated.“The two leaders agreed to stay in close touch on a way forward.”Aside from tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the U.S., dozens of additional consumer goods will be subject to 10 per cent duties — from ketchup, to lawn mowers, to playing cards.It’s all part of Ottawa’s plan to strike back at the U.S. in response to hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum, 25 per cent and 10 per cent respectively, imposed last month by Trump.Freeland called the legal pretext used by the U.S. to impose the duties — that Canada poses a national security threat — “not only absurd, it’s hurtful.”“We are perfectly within our rights to respond,” said Freeland, who was joined at the announcement by Trudeau cabinet colleagues Patty Hajdu and Navdeep Bains.There are fears, however, that Canadian tariffs — some of which target businesses in states that are important to Trump and his supporters — could lead to fresh trade action from the U.S.Trump himself has already threatened to put tariffs on the automotive sector, which could prove far worse for the Canadian economy than the steel and aluminum duties.Peter Clark, an Ottawa trade consultant, said U.S. automotive tariffs would be a “disaster — pure, unmitigated disaster” for Canada.Freeland, asked whether she feared the U.S. would escalate matters, recalled a public comment she made right before the start of NAFTA negotiations — another tough Canada-U.S. trade file. At the time, she said she told Canadians the federal government expected “moments of drama in this process.”“I think that prediction has been borne out,” she said. “I think all of us, at this point, fully anticipate there will be some moments of drama in the future.”Ohio-based trade lawyer Dan Ujczo said he believes there’s a significant chance Trump will introduce auto tariffs to some degree, although he predicted they could target the European Union rather than Canada.Overall, Ujczo said Canada’s retaliatory tariffs have been baked into the White House’s calculus for months. The situation means it’s now a top priority for stalled NAFTA talks to get moving as soon as possible, he said.The U.S. tariffs, he insisted, are inextricably intertwined with the NAFTA negotiations. And at the end of the day, Ujczo added the Trump administration’s overarching objective of the talks has been to stop Canada and Mexico from being the back door to North America for Chinese goods, like steel.“What we’ve seen over the last six months or so is Canada take measures to stop that,” he said. “But from the U.S. perspective, it took the threat of tariffs to do that, to prod Canada toward that goal.”Last week, U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the U.S. tariffs against Canada and other allies were designed to force them into action to address the world’s overproduction and overcapacity of steel.Freeland has insisted that Canada introduced stronger safeguards on steel well before the U.S. imposed the tariffs.On this front, Ottawa feels it has more work to do. Bains, the economic development minister, said Friday that the feds are consulting with industry so even more can be done to address the diversion and dumping of aluminum and steel in the Canadian market.The Trudeau government’s decision to stand up to Trump with countermeasures has attracted wide support in Canada. But domestic businesses, particularly those in the steel sector, have expressed deep concerns about any escalation in the trade battle.More broadly, the effects of the trade fight are expected to hurt both economies — putting jobs at risk and potentially raising consumer prices.For example, Clark said as the price of products like steel rise, the increases will move through the system and hit the consumer in the wallet.On support for businesses and workers, Friday’s federal package includes similar measures to those offered by Ottawa last year in response U.S. duties on softwood lumber products from Canada.For the latest dispute, the government intends to help affected workers by doubling the duration of work-sharing agreements under the employment insurance program to 76 weeks from 38 weeks. The aim is to help businesses retain skilled workers and avoid layoffs during any rough patches ahead.Ottawa is also vowing to boost funding for the provinces and territories to increase job and training programs.For companies, Ottawa is promising up to $1.7 billion worth of financing and services for steel and aluminum industries through the Business Development Bank of Canada and Export Development Canada.Through its strategic innovation fund, Ottawa is also offering up to $250 million in support to reinforce the competitiveness of Canadian manufacturers and strengthen the integration of Canada’s steel and aluminum supply chain.Bains said the support is aimed at helping firms adjust to the difficult circumstances while enabling them to continue to innovate along the way.The government also plans to invest $50 million over five years to help firms take full advantage of recent trade agreements, including Canada’s deal with the European Union and its membership in the Trans-Pacific Partnership.— With files from Armina Ligaya in Hamilton
Thousands of users of a parking app may have had their personal details shared with other customers.Around 2,000 customers of the parking app RingGo were presented with other people’s details when they logged into the service.Many took to Twitter to complain of seeing people’s names, vehicle registrations, email addresses and even credit card details.The app allows users to register several cars and pay to park them in hundreds of locations across the country.One customer, John Rust, tweeted: “Just got a call from a guy who logged into @RingGo_parking app and it loaded my personal info – he phoned my mobile number that was revealed.”Another, Thomas Bathurst, branding the incident “awful”, reported seeing credit card information and car details.The company confirmed the problem occurred after a new version of the app was released in on Tuesday and said a full investigation was being launched and a report had been submitted to the Information Commissioner’s Office.But on Thursday a glitch in the database meant some drivers were able to see details from other accounts during peak rush hour.A spokesman from RingGo yesterday confirmed the data breach.He said: “As soon as the issue came to our attention we ran a fix and by 0930 no additional motorists’ info could be viewed.”We believe the actual number of people who have been directly impacted is around 600.”This error is totally unacceptable and we apologise sincerely to those affected.”The spokesperson said a further 1400 accounts had potentially been affected because they were parking at the time the incident began.

In 2011 Martin Henderson was left paralysed after a man threw him into the air outside a pub in Somerset. She has also criticised the company for using the term “midget”.”It has strong historical associations with the Freak Shows of days gone by at which people with dwarfism were paraded and ridiculed. It is widely considered to be deeply offensive to most people in the dwarfism community,” she said. A spokesman for the show said it would be “first time a show of its kind will be seen in the UK since the Victorian times”.He said that in the USA, “the term Midget Wrestling is perceived by those that partake in the sport to offer a proud lineage. “However, in the UK the term is seen as degrading, so the term was not used in the posters or marketing here in the UK.” Lorenzo Jordan said: “I kinda feel hurt by it, because this is a choice, and I love to do it.”Another wrestler, Michael Stone, said: “We’re going out there, working, providing for our families. We’re just trying to have fun and do our jobs.”Michael Colitti, another wrestler, said: “I am deeply upset with why one of the venues in England has decided to cancel our show calling it grotesque and horrific. “I was under the impression that the UK as a whole had moved away from the Victorian pitch-fork mentality, waiting at castle gates telling people like myself are not welcome around these parts.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

At least two shows in a planned UK tour by “Dwarfanators” performers, based in Texas, USA have been cancelled after protests from British charity the Restricted Growth Association. Performers have protested that they will lose two weeks of earnings if the tour is cancelled and called the criticism from the RGA “rude”. And a local politician has backed the wrestlers, arguing that the performers will lose money. James Lusted, an actor and county councillor in Rhos-on-Sea, north Wales, who has dwarfism, said he was “really frustrated” at the cancellation. “If they want to wrestle then let them crack on. If you don’t agree with it don’t go,” he told BBC Radio Wales.”That’s how they’ve chosen to live, that’s how they’ve chosen to support their families, pay their bills. Why don’t we just encourage and support them in that.”These professional entertainers, they’re well trained and fit but they’re actually going to lose finances now. I feel sorry for them.”The events in Leicester and Ferndown, near Bournemouth were pulled by the venues after the criticism. But Mr Luster said planned shows in Cardiff and Swansea should go ahead. He added: “Many of the wrestlers in the show have not left the USA and have invested time, money and in some cases, their life savings to be able to tour the UK.”Mr Luster’s comments came as the wrestlers themselves defended their show. One performer, Ashley Waterhouse, said not working for two weeks would “hurt me, bad”, adding: “nothing about it is a freak show”. The shows include elements which “encourages violence in real life” such as picking up and throwing people with dwarfism On Wednesday Gillian Martin, from the RGA, said: “We remain resolute in our belief that such events are primarily about encouraging audiences to laugh at people with dwarfism and the spectacle of violence against dwarf bodies as entertainment for average height people.”She said the shows include elements which “encourages violence in real life” such as picking up and throwing people with dwarfism. Events in Leicester and Ferndown, near Bournemouth were pulled by the venues after the criticism.
Socialist PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos on Thursday sought to absolve himself of responsibility for the failure of authorities to probe a list of some 2,000 Greek tax evasion suspects, given to authorities two years ago by former French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde, as former minister Yiannis Ragousis quit the party, casting aspersions on Venizelos’s role in the affair.Speaking to Mega TV on Wednesday night, Venizelos defended his actions during his stint as finance minister, saying his efforts had focused on “saving the country” not on “controlling secret information.” Venizelos, who on Tuesday gave authorities a memory stick containing the list of names after Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras admitted the data had gone astray, also hit out at the leftist opposition SYRIZA party after it declared that “the country went to elections while Venizelos kept the data in his drawer.”Venizelos said the affair should be discussed by Parliament’s transparency committee, which on Wednesday heard from former Financial Crimes Squad (SDOE) chief Yiannis Diotis. In his testimony, Diotis claimed to have been given the list of names “informally” by former Finance Minister Giorgos Papaconstantinou, but said the information could not be used as it was not a legitimate document.Earlier in the day, Ragousis quit PASOK, citing inaction over the list which, he said, demonstrated the authorities’ “decisiveness to not strike at tax evasion with the same severity reserved for onslaughts on income and imposing new taxes.” Ragousis said PASOK was “a party where the views and practices of the political establishment set up after the fall of the military dictatorship have prevailed.” His departure came as another ex-PASOK minister, Andreas Loverdos, suggested he would launch his own party soon.

Hadopi : des adresses IP impossibles à identifierFrance – Les débuts de l’Hadopi sont laborieux. Après des retards dus aux contestations émanant des nombreux opposants à la loi contre le téléchargement illégal, la Haute autorité pour la diffusion des oeuvres et la protection des données sur Internet se frotte à une nouvelle difficulté : la non identification d’une adresse IP sur dix.L’Hadopi a lancé la procédure d’envoi de courriels. Les fournisseurs d’accès Internet (FAI) doivent désormais délivrer à l’instance l’identité des internautes soupçonnés de télécharger illégalement, via leur adresse IP. Problème : 8 à 10% de ces adresses ne sont pas identifiables. Cet obstacle est un gros grain de sable dans les rouages de l’Hadopi, qui ne peut envoyer l’ensemble de ses e-mails. Ainsi, après l’annonce du traitement de 50.000 dossiers par jour l’été dernier, la Commission doit se résoudre à viser l’envoi de 2.000 courriers électroniques par jour d’ici la fin de l’année.Le 26 octobre 2010 à 11:16 • Emmanuel Perrin

This is one very good doggo. A New Jersey dog has been promised a steak dinner after it courageously chased a huge black bear from a neighbor’s backyard this week.Mark Stinziano, of West Milford, shared home security video footage on Tuesday that captured a black bear raiding the bird feeder behind his house before his neighbor’s dog, Riley, rushes over to scare off the huge bear.

Now he is keeping them safe,” Stinziano wrote about Riley on Facebook.Stinziano said Riley always checks in on his kids when they’re playing in the pool.“Riley – 1, Bear – 0,” he added.Riley’s proud owner, Alan Tlusty, told ABC 7 he wasn’t surprised that his courageous dog took action.“It’s incredible,” Tlusty said. “He does chase after the bear whenever he sees him in the yard … but not like this.”Black bears are attracted by odors from potential food sources, according to the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife, which urges residents not to leave out any food or garbage that may encourage bears to linger in residential areas.The agency recommends suspending bird feeders from a free-hanging wire, making sure it is at least 10 feet off the ground and at least 10 feet away from the trunk of a tree. It also warns residents not to suspend feeders off of the house or deck.More on Geek.com:Photographer Captures ‘Best Bear Fight Ever’ in Wild VideoTired Black Bear Sneaks Into Montana Home to Take a NapWatch: Massive Bears Have Intense Brawl in New Jersey Yard

Some witnesses said Kaye suffered the fatal wound while trying to protect the rabbi from the gunfire.Kaye was shot late Saturday morning while at the temple with her husband and daughter to honor her recently deceased mother, according to Goldstein, who lost one index finger in the shooting and spent hours in surgery as doctors worked to save the other.After the shooter’s gun jammed, he was chased out of the building by a Border Patrol agent who is a member of the congregation. The suspect, 19-year-old John T. Earnest of Rancho Penasquitos, fled in a vehicle but was arrested nearby a short time later.Another worshipper, 34-year-old Almog Peretz, suffered a gunshot wound while shepherding children to safety, including his 8-year-old niece, Noya Dahan, who was hit by shrapnel. Both have been released from hospital care and are expected to recover.During the memorial service, Goldstein, at times gesturing with his mutilated and bandaged right hand, told the overflow crowd there were “no adequate words to describe what we all endured in this room this past (Sabbath).”During the attack, the congregation “saw the darkest of humanity,” Goldstein told the gathering, which was attended by San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, several members of the county Board of Supervisors and other local and state elected leaders.“I saw it face to face,” the rabbi said. “I wish to never see that ever again. I wish no one ever sees that ever again. At the same moment, we saw the heroic efforts of humanity, running into the line of fire to spare other lives, putting their lives in danger. This is the best of humanity.”The rabbi insisted the congregation will rise above the trauma wreaked by the tragedy.“What we are going to take from this event is (that) it’s not going to knock us down,” he said. “It’s going to lift us up.”The victim’s husband praised his late wife as a highly generous and loving person.“She had a soul that was greater than any of us ever could believe,” said Howard Kaye, a physician who tried in vain to save his spouse’s life with CPR while she lay mortally wounded at the temple.The grieving husband also had a message for perpetrators of the type of crime that took his wife’s life.“And for all of the people who perpetrate hate through this world, you’re feeding on blood,” he said. “You’re lowering yourselves to a level below an animal, and for that reason get out while you can. Turn your life around. Come back into the real world, the world of Lori, which is peace and love on Earth.”One of the victim’s sisters told the gathering that Kaye “was taken from us in a tragic way, but not in vain.”“This is a house of God,” Randi Grossman said. “We are a people who believe in God. And we believe God does things for the good. If he chose Lori … there is a reason. And although we don’t know what the reason is, we know that it’s for the greater good. Lori died on (the Sabbath). Lori died on Passover. Lori died in a synagogue. And Lori died saving our rabbi.”Donna Doan, a self-described Catholic, told a reporter she attended the funeral in support of the Jewish community.“I feel like I have to be here,” the Rancho Bernardo woman said outside the synagogue.Another attendee, a Carlsbad resident and Christian who identified herself only as Caryn, said she was at the memorial to show support for the victimized congregation.“I love the Jewish community,” she said. “I hate to see senseless and irrational crimes committed.”The alleged shooter is being held without bail at San Diego Central Jail and is scheduled make his initial court appearance in the case Wednesday. He was booked on suspicion of one count of murder and three charges of attempted murder.Though he allegedly shouted anti-Semitic slurs during the rampage — including a statement that Jews were “ruining the world” — Earnest was not believed to be part of an organized hate group, according to law enforcement officials.“We believe he acted alone and without outside support in carrying out the attack,” according to a county Sheriff’s Department statement. “We are continuing to explore every investigative avenue to bring out all the facts in the case.”Earnest, a Cal State San Marcos student, posted an “open letter” online shortly before the shooting, claiming responsibility for the imminent attack and for a suspected arson fire that damaged the Islamic Center of Escondido last month. The screed includes anti-Semitic references and racist comments, authorities said.“We are dismayed and disheartened that the alleged shooter now in custody is a CSUSM student,” university President Karen Haynes said. “CSUSM is working collaboratively with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department to assist and gain more information. We extend our deepest condolences to all of the victims, their families, friends and our entire community. We share yourgrief. … We stand in solidarity with the Jewish community and reject the rhetoric of divisiveness that feeds hatred.”The family of the alleged shooter issued a statement decrying the deadly assault and bemoaning Earnest’s alleged culpability in the crime, which could result in the death penalty.“We are shocked and deeply saddened by the terrible attack on the Chabad of Poway synagogue,” they wrote. “But our sadness pales in comparison to the grief and anguish our son has caused for so many innocent people. He has killed and injured the faithful who were gathered in a sacred place on a sacred day. To our great shame, he is now part of the history of evil that has been perpetrated on Jewish people for centuries.”The family added that Earnest’s apparent hateful attitudes had been “informed by people we do not know and ideas we do not hold.”“Like our other five children, he was raised in a family, a faith and a community that all rejected hate and taught that love must be the motive for everything we do,” they stated. “How our son was attracted to such darkness is a terrifying mystery to us, though we are confident that law enforcement will uncover many details of the path that he took to this evil and despicable act.” April 29, 2019 Posted: April 29, 2019 Updated: 8:48 PM KUSI Newsroom, Hundreds of people celebrate the life of Lori Kaye Categories: Local San Diego News, Trending FacebookTwitter
A fifth (20%) of employer respondents organise counselling for their employees in order to support staff mental health, according to research by insurance organisation Aviva and the British Chambers of Commerce.Their survey of 1,020 UK organisations also found that 35% of respondents provide flexible working options to help support employees with potential mental health problems.The research also found:36% of respondents review individual workloads to help support staff with their mental health, while 18% train managers to better support employees.49% of respondents do not access occupational health support for their staff from external bodies, and 10% are not aware of any available support.29% of respondents have seen an increase in the number of employees taking time off work for mental health reasons.33% of respondents have observed an increase in the length of time employees are taking off work because of mental health issues.Adam Marshall (pictured), director general at the British Chambers of Commerce, said: “As the world of work changes, it is absolutely crucial for business leaders to pay ever closer attention to the health and wellbeing of their employees, especially at a time when firms are facing severe challenges finding and retaining the skilled staff they need.“While legions of [organisations] are now more aware of mental health concerns and acting accordingly, far too many businesses are still turning a blind eye to this issue, which saps productivity, morale and individual wellbeing. Our message today is that it is no longer acceptable for [employers] to ignore mental health in the workplace, and all [organisations] need to step up [its] game.”Dr Doug Wright, medical director at Aviva, added: “It is encouraging to see that more businesses are not only more aware of the topic of mental health in the workplace, but are also actively offering initiatives like flexible working options to help encourage a healthy work-life balance.“It is, however, worrying to see almost a third of businesses have seen an increase in people taking time off for mental health reasons, and [while] some of this increase may be down to staff feeling more able to discuss the issue of mental health which is, in itself, good news, it also suggests that more can be done to help.”

WILMINGTON, MA — Based on information provided at Monday night’s Board of Selectmen’s Meeting, here are some of the latest developments in the effort to construct a detox facility at 362 Middlesex Avenue.The Board of Appeals has an important meeting tonight (Wednesday) at 7pm in the Town Hall Auditorium on this matter.#1) At tonight’s meeting, the Board of Appeals will review and possibly vote on the draft written decision that was made at its January 16 meeting to deny the special permit request of the applicants.“Town Counsel Jonathan Silverstein has prepared a decision that is intended to reflect both the vote that was taken and the basis for the decision to deny the special permit,” Town Manager Jeff Hull told Selectmen. “If the decision is finalized at that meeting, it must then be filed with the Town Clerk.”#2) If a majority of Board of Appeals members were to disapprove the draft for some reason, the vote denying the special permit would NOT change.“This is NOT an opportunity to change the substance of the decision,” said Town Counsel Mark Rich in response to a question raised by Selectman Mike McCoy. “The Zoning Board of Appeals must come to an agreement on how that decision will be translated. They’ll be discussing the language of the report that goes to the Town Clerk. This is NOT an opportunity to reconsider the vote that denied the special permit… The intent is to have a defensible decision for the Town Clerk as that’s going to be the matter of any appeal… That it accurately and appropriately reflects the comments and positions of the [board members] and how they voted.”#3) Also at tonight’s meeting, the Board of Appeals will discuss the process to follow for consideration of a request from the applicant for a reasonable accommodation.“The Board will consider, with the advice of [Town Counsel] Jonathan Silverstein, whether or not to conduct the meeting as a public hearing and will receive counsel’s opinion as to whether the decision to grant a reasonable accommodation requires a simple majority or a ‘supermajority,’ added Hull.#4) Town Counsel Jonathan Silverstein has communicated with Town Manager Hull that he intends on recommending to the Board of Appeals that (1) the board DOES conduct a public hearing and (2) the decision to grant the reasonable accommodation would require a SUPERMAJORITY (i.e., 4-1 or 5-0), NOT a simple majority. KP Law believes the governance of the town would still apply in this case.#5) The Board of Appeals will NOT actually consider whether or not to grant the reasonable accommodation at tonight’s meeting, and it may be awhile before it does so.“The Board’s next scheduled meeting on March 13, 2019 apparently has a full agenda, which may mean that the reasonable accommodations matter is scheduled for a later date,” cautioned Hull.#6) The Concerned Citizens of Wilmington recently provided the Zoning Board of Appeals and Board of Selectmen with a letter arguing that the federal American with Disabilities Act may not be invoked to supersede local zoning bylaws. A ruling from the Sixth Circuit Court (Get Back Up, Inc. vs. City of Detroit & City of Detroit Board of Appeals) was provided as support.The letter also argued that the residents of Wilmington have already made “reasonable accommodations” to those suffering from substance abuse by amending the zoning bylaw to allow for the construction of future detox facilities in industrial zoned areas that are “remote, quiet, and more conducive to those individuals undergoing the torments of withdrawal.”Prior to summarizing the letter for the Board of Selectmen, Town Manager Jeff Hull took an opportunity to clear up any implication that Town Counsel Jonathan Silverstein hadn’t been evaluating the case.“[Attorney Silverstein] has looked at a number of different cases. He’s a specialist in land use law. I think it needs to be made very clear to the public that he is on top of this. He has many years of experience in land use law,” stressed Hull.A letter from Silverstein was read into the record at the end of Monday’s meeting, which, in part, reemphasized Hull’s assurances that Town Counsel has been handling the case appropriately.#7) Resident Suzanne Sullivan criticized the Board of Selectmen for, in her opinion, failing to protect and defend the bylaws of the town. She read a section of the Wilmington Board of Appeals’ rules and regulation:“The discussion about this accommodation, in our minds, is illegal,” continued Sullivan. “There is no basis for them to be coming to the Board of Appeals and this town is setting up a process that is counter to the bylaws of the town. And this isn’t only town bylaws, it’s the state statute… Are we going to have to sit here and listen to this ‘fake process’ coming forward?… I’ve yet to hear how under what law they can come forward with an accommodation petition after they just got a denial on a special permit from the Zoning Board of Appeals. I still don’t have that answer…. This is not allowed. It was voted down. Plain and simple. Deal with it. They have a recourse — it’s called land court.”#8) Resident Rob Fasulo urged the Board of Selectmen to reconsider its decision not to enter into Executive Session to discuss Board of Appeals Chair Dan Veerman and any perceived “liability issues” he causes the town in this matter.“There’s been a lot of talk about the Facebook post [in which he used the term “junkie”], began Fasulo. “I don’t remember hearing any talk of any other comments. I happened to be going back through the WCTV tapes. During the carnival debate, [right before] the 26-minute on the January 13 meeting video, [Veerman] is on record again using that questionable word. So now we have a long-term pattern of this usage. The concern over that is he really can only vote one way without getting the town into some trouble. If he votes no when this accommodation comes up, there will surely be an appeal on that fact alone.”“I’m not saying he’s a bad guy, but this situation needs to be looked at,” continued Fasulo. “Can he make a vote one way or the other without causing liability to the town? You guys need to do your job and at least have the discussion… Please reconsider the vote and go into Executive Session to discuss.”#9) Later in the evening, Selectman Mike McCoy requested that the Board of Selectmen, at an upcoming meeting, again consider entering Executive Session to discuss Board of Appeals Chair Dan Veerman. While no formal vote took place after McCoy made the motion, Selectman Chair Kevin Caira agreed to put it on the agenda for a future meeting. McCoy noted he planed on raising this issue even before Fasulo suggested it.At the February 11 meeting, the Board of Selectmen were stalemated 2-2 on whether or not to enter Executive Session, with Selectmen McCoy & Bendel voting in favor and Selectmen Caira and Loud voting against, with Selectman Eaton abstaining. As a result, the motion failed due to the lack of a majority. With Selectman Loud having resigned from the board, the math, and possibly outcome, of the next vote may be different.#10) Selectman Mike McCoy also made a request that, by the next Selectmen’s Meeting, he be provided with examples of other instances where the Wilmington Board of Appeals took a vote at one meeting and then took a vote on the original vote’s decision at a following meeting. He claimed it had never happened before. Town Counsel Mark Rich said it was not uncommon, but did not specify if he was speaking generally or Wilmington-specific.“In all my 30 years, I don’t think this has ever happened. I think when [the Board of Appeals] takes a vote, they deny it, and it automatically goes to the Town Clerk’s Office,” claimed McCoy. “Can anyone please tell me if there’s ever been a case, on file, similar to what we’re doing now for 362 Middlesex Ave, where there actually going to take a vote on a decision?”Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.
