Construction of a 72-bed psychiatric hospital is set to begin in Salmon Creek next month, with the facility slated to open next summer.Springstone LLC of Louisville, Ky., will build Rainier Springs Hospital on a 12.5-acre site near the Interstate 205 interchange at Northeast 134th Street. Once operational in 2018, the hospital will provide a range of inpatient and outpatient mental health and addiction services for adults. “We’re excited about going out to that community,” said Jill Force, Springstone co-founder and chief administrative officer. “It’s a wonderful state, and we’re excited to be entering.”Springstone was founded seven years ago with the goal of treating mental illness and addiction in an attractive and therapeutic environment, Force said. “Within the industry, there’s a lot of people buying and selling the same buildings,” she said. “We wanted to do it with a fresh start and build a place that’s nice and healing for our patients.”
It’s one of the tastiest mash-ups of myth in all musical history: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart either was poisoned, impoverished or simply overworked to death at the tragically young age of 35. Aware he was dying, he struggled but failed to finish a monumental Requiem Mass in time for his own funeral.In the movie “Amadeus,” it’s Mozart’s musical rival, the insanely jealous Antonio Salieri, who drives the young genius to an exhausted grave through labor on the Mass — pushing him to compose himself literally to death in 1791. It’s the perfect artistic crime.It’s also fiction. But the actual facts are also pretty mysterious: a Viennese aristocrat whose wife died young secretly commissioned the Mass, meaning to pass it off as his own work. Mozart’s health was already failing — an actual malady has never been identified, but it’s known he had a high fever — and after he died, his widow hired a pupil to finish the Mass in its original style. She also hid the fact that the final product wasn’t entirely her late husband’s, because that would have hurt publication and concert ticket sales; while she was at it, apparently, she also invented other myths that have surrounded Mozart’s final work, and final end, ever since.Despite all that, you can shrug off any reservations about the piece’s provenance. Even the ghost-written music in the Requiem very likely originated in Mozart’s own brain; while the plot of “Amadeus” is fiction, what’s known fact is that the composer really did finish and polish vast quantities of music inside his head before ever bothering to write it down. Any wonder that he’d inspire jealous rage, whether fictional or real, in other musicians?Choir steps upYou can consider these mysteries while hearing the Vancouver USA Singers and a 21-piece orchestra perform this true masterpiece of choral music March 11 and 12.
Hunched over an iPad, Joe Ballard watched as pixelated storm troopers surrounded a tiny R2-D2.With deft fingers, the 10-year-old boy dragged together what look like small puzzle pieces on the screen. They changed the scenery, the type of obstacles and the number of enemies in the game he built Thursday.Joe, a fourth-grader at Felida Elementary School, is among 60 students enrolled in Vancouver Public Schools’ special education classes who is learning how to write computer code.“It feels satisfying. It’s also challenging,” said Joe, who has written hundreds of lines of code, according to a chart on the classroom wall. “It’s a lot of puzzles.”Vancouver Public Schools last year received a $5,000 grant from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction to launch a pilot computer science program for students in structured communication programs and structured learning centers. In other words, these are classrooms whose students demonstrate developmental delays in social awareness, communication skills and appropriate social behavior.The Foundation for Vancouver Public Schools donated a matching $5,000 to the program, allowing the district to pay for training for teachers, purchase iPads for kindergarten through second-grade classrooms, and buy robots the students can program to move around their classrooms.
PORTLAND — Our Lady of Lavang’s Christmas Eve Mass went on as scheduled with more than 500 families crowding into the large sanctuary, hours after a driver plowed through the entrance, damaging the doors and wooden pews.“We have a very strong community and support here,” said Henry Tran, as more than a dozen young musicians from the Lavang Youth Chamber Orchestra took to the stage, playing a jolly rendition of “Sleigh Ride.”Tran said he was shocked when he heard that a man plowed his Acura MDX through the church doors around 12:15 a.m. Monday.“Stunning for us at this Christmas season,” Tran said.Yet as soon as the pastor alerted parishioners, at least a hundred members showed up to help mop up the mess, bring in folding chairs to replace the pews and place plywood over the entrances.Jessica Nguyen said that by the time she came to help earlier Monday morning there already were many people present working.“One message from our priest,” she said, “and everyone responded.” Monday night, the 23-year-old posed for photos with relatives beside the lit-up Nativity Scene, thankful the service could be held.Some of the congregants said they recognized the man accused of ramming his car through the church, Hieu John Phung, 35.Kiet To, a member who also provides security at the church, said Phung’s children learn Vietnamese at the church school.Phung was booked into the downtown Portland jail at 4:05 a.m., but later released on his own recognizance. He’s due to be arraigned on a first-degree criminal mischief allegation on Wednesday.
Marx Wayne Coonrod denied robbing the same Vancouver Umpqua Bank branch twice and trying a third time over a three-month span in 2016 through the very end of his criminal case.“My right to a fair trial was taken from me. I’m sorry about what happened to these people, but it wasn’t me,” Coonrod said during sentencing Friday.“You’re a bank robber,” Clark County Superior Court Judge Daniel Stahnke replied, moments before he handed down a more than 14-year prison sentence.Coonrod, a 62-year-old from Scappoose, Ore., robbed the bank Feb. 1, 2016, and March 16, 2016, and tried to do it again April 22 of that year, court records say.The first robbery was carried out by a man wearing a dark-colored, hooded jacket, a dark beanie and scarf. He walked into the bank shortly after 10:30 a.m., according to an affidavit of probable cause. Witnesses described the robber as being an average height, with a heavy build and distinctive, almost limping walk, Senior Deputy Prosecutor James Smith said. The robber demanded bills in $50 and $100 denominations. He didn’t show a firearm.

Thorgan Hazard was a key figure in Borussia Mönchengladbach’s 2-1 win over Hertha Berlin as he managed to score a brace and helped his team to come from behind after trailing 1-0.The Belgian knows that his side are in the crucial part of the season and they need every single point to gain a better spot in the Bundesliga table as they are still fighting to secure the European football for the season to come.The former Chelsea player spoke about this win as he said, according to borussia.de:Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“We weren’t at our best today and it wasn’t easy to turn the game around. After trailing 1-0, we scored but it wasn’t given and we kept going. We scored twice and won.”“If I’m honest, playing like we did and winning is far better than playing well and losing. At this stage of the season, it’s crucial. It means a lot for our confidence. I hope we can push on.”“I was happy once more yesterday. I hope I keep smiling but football is a team sport. Scoring goals is great but you have to win the game. When both happen, it’s even better.”
Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has revealed that winning the World Cup with France this summer was something way beyond his dreamsThe 27-year-old started in all seven of France’s World Cup games this summer at Russia to help the national side lift the famous trophy for the first time in 20 years after defeating Croatia 4-2 in last month’s final.While Kante now has his eyes firmly set on a third Premier League crown in four years, he will never take his day job for granted.“We are lucky to be playing football for a living. For me, this is what I have always wanted to do. To get to this level is all down to Allah’s blessing,” he told the Daily Mirror.“There are millions of people out there, who every day want to get the opportunity to do the work we are doing and it’s a short career.Chelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“That is why I give it my all at every given opportunity. I am lucky to get the opportunity to play for France and that alone is a huge motivation for me, whenever I go on the pitch. To represent one’s own country is one of the biggest achievements a footballer can get.“To play for your nation on the world stage is worth more than money can ever buy, and I get to do that, so I am very fortunate. To win the World Cup in our colours was beyond my dreams and something I will never, ever forget.“To be able to be part of that group will stay with us until the end of our lives because we know what winning the World Cup means to us.”Kante scored a rare goal for Chelsea in their 3-0 win at Huddersfield on Saturday.
Red Star Belgrade boss Vladan Milojevic believes it’s essential his players maintain full concentration for their entire Champions League game against LiverpoolThe Serbian side will host Liverpool for their fourth fixture of Group C at the Rajko Mitic Stadium this evening.So far, Red Star have only collected a single point from three games and lie bottom of the group table.Therefore, defeat today will almost certainly ensure their elimination from the competition – depending on the outcome of the Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain game.“In every game, it is important that for 90 minutes you have concentration both in defense and in attack,” said Milojevic, according to Tribalfootball.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“Our opponent is a team that has been selected to win the Champions League. We have to do our best.“They use every moment. Their players punish even the smallest detail.“Simply, at this moment, all the teams in our group in the Champions League play in the three best leagues in the world.“And they are much stronger. This is our reality. We’ll do our best. We will fight for each ball.”The game between Red Star and Liverpool will begin at 18:55 (CEST).
Everton’s Leighton Baines believes that new team-mate Bernard’s intelligence can win them matchesThe Brazil international joined Everton on a free transfer last summer after his contract at Shakhtar Donetsk expired in June.Bernard has since featured in 18 of Everton’s 21 Premier League games this season and scored his first goal for the club in their 2-1 FA Cup win over Lincoln City on Saturday.But the 26-year-old’s most eye-catching asset at Goodison Park is his creativity and vision in the midfield with Bernard matching Gylfi Sigurdsson as Everton’s leading assists provider with three.“Bernard is definitely someone who can win us matches,” said Baines on the club website.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“He is a guy who can link things together.“It is a very difficult thing in football sometimes to get space between the lines and link the midfield to the forwards but he does it with ease because he is such an intelligent footballer.“I am sure coming to England is not easy given the places where he has played his football before but he has settled really well and shows his unbelievable quality on a daily basis.”The Toffees will take on Bournemouth this Sunday in the Premier League.
New Barcelona recruit Jean-Clair Todibo claims that he chose the club because of their ‘history’ after turning down so many offers.Reports had suggested Manchester City had made an approach for the player, to whom Juventus and Real Madrid were also linked before his deal to Barca was announced.Todibo will wrap up his deal with Toulouse before moving to the Camp Nou in July.“Jean-Clair is very happy with his choice, it all came down to the history of the club,” agent Bruno Satin told Sports News, as cited by Football Espana.“Barca are a massive club and were a dream of his since his childhood, so this move was all about his feelings rather than the financial package.Mourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“There was also the career aspect, we felt he has a better chance of breaking into Barca’s first-team as opposed to other sides who were interested, such as Juventus.“He is a player like Marcel Desailly, he can play in midfield too, is physically very strong and athletic, he can be adaptable.”📋 The complete lowdown on @jctodibo 🇫🇷🔙 His background, his role models and much more…👉 https://t.co/aSdp2VQVsf— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) January 8, 2019

The event was facilitated by the St. James Municipal Corporation at the Old Hospital Park, Gloucester Avenue, in the city.Mayor of Montego Bay, His Worship Homer Davis, praised the efforts of the local company for providing the gifts for the children. “The city really needed something as beautiful as this for a change,” he said. “There are many good and decent law-abiding persons throughout the parish of St. James, and we saw a lot of that on display here today. The parish council is indeed happy to have been a part of it,” the Mayor said.Originally billed to cater for 2,000 children, the event well exceeded the amount, forcing the organizers to resort to a contingency plan. Fortunately, there was enough staff on hand to keep things in order, so that every single child inside the venue was able to receive a gift. Earlier, they were treated to a live concert where the steel band Tropical Vibes was a huge hit, playing a number of popular Christmas songs.For his part, President of the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association (JHTA), Omar Robinson, said he was impressed with the event. “The JHTA took some 60 kids from the SOS Children’s Village to the event, and they all had smiles on their faces. It is really nice to see an organization taking this time to put in such a tremendous effort. This is a beautiful thing for Montego Bay and the adjoining communities, and the organizers must really and truly be commended,” he said.Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer and Corporate Entertainment Director of Hah-R-Mony, Ho-Chi-Min Castillo Rolffot, said his company is very happy to have been able to put on the event, noting that “it was worth every penny that we spent”. “We are fully committed to do this again next year. We are going to try our best to get more sponsors involved, so we can have even more gifts for the children,” he said.Hah-R-Mony Entertainment Limited is a promotional company that was established in 2009, and which currently operates in 29 hotels and employs more than 100 workers. #MagneticMediaNews Related Items:

Edmund Bartlett, says Jamaica’s hosting of the six largest ships in the world is proof that the island is poised to become the region’s number one cruise destination.Mr. Bartlett, who recently returned from a five-day trip to Nassau, Bahamas, where he attended an important meeting of the Caribbean Tourism Organization’s (CTO) Council of Tourism Ministers and Commissioners, said having the world’s largest cruise vessels simultaneously calling on a single destination is a rarity and something of which Jamaicans should be proud.“This speaks of the unwavering support the cruise lines have for Jamaica and our tourism product,” he told JIS News. “We have to remember that we are in a very competitive region where these ships can go anywhere. There is nothing in the rule book that says they have to come to Jamaica. The fact that we have these large and expensive mega liners calling at our ports should tell us that we have come a long way and should continue to build on our tourism offerings,” he noted further.Currently, the Port of Falmouth is hosting the three largest cruise ships in the world – Harmony of the Seas, Allure of the Seas, and Oasis of the Seas, which are all Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines (RCCL) vessels. Ocho Rios is hosting the Norwegian Epic, the Norwegian Pearl and the Carnival Vista. A fourth ship in the RCCL’s Oasis luxury fleet, which is under construction and set to replace Harmony of the Seas as the biggest ship in the world, could be added to Jamaica’s itinerary in November 2018.Mr. Bartlett pointed out that the Falmouth Port, which is easily the largest in the region, has the capacity to accommodate all the Oasis class vessels. “Popular destinations like the Cayman Islands, where at best the ships would have to be tendered, can make no such claim. The onus is now on us to create the kind of environment where we can fully capitalize on having these large vessels calling on our ports,” he pointed out.The Tourism Minister said the beautification work being carried out in Falmouth is very important, adding that “we have to ensure that the people of Falmouth also benefit from what is happening in the town. We also have to ensure that when the visitors get off the ships their expectations of a day in Jamaica are fully realized,” he added. “We want to see them walking the streets and interacting freely. It is very important that we make their stay as enjoyable as possible where they can become future stopover visitors,” he said.The work in Falmouth, being carried out by the Port Authority of Jamaica (PAJ), includes cleaning, landscaping, planting of flowers, social and community outreach, and the enforcement of public-order statutes. Minister Bartlett noted the recent meeting with cruise line owners in Miami, led by Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, was “a turning point” for the island’s cruise sector.“That was the meeting where Mickey Arison, the owner of Carnival Cruises, the biggest cruise line in the world, made the point that it was the first time he could recall having a Jamaican Prime Minister attending one of their meetings and also the importance of having discussions at that level,” Mr. Bartlett explained. “I personally left that meeting knowing that the onus is now on us to deliver and not to disappoint,” he added.

The Ministries of Culture and Health fully endorse this initiative. [A] healthy lifestyle extends your life and gives you a good quality of life. We want persons to take up the challenge of living a healthier life in terms of diet and exercise and, hopefully, this will combat some of the illnesses common in society,” he said.For her part, Executive Director of the Heart Foundation of Jamaica, Deborah Chen, said that the event is an important tool in the fight against cardiovascular disease, adding that 25 per cent of the population suffer from high blood pressure with another 33 per cent being pre-hypertensive.“Exercise is one of the activities that we can use to try and prevent ourselves from becoming overweight, along with healthy eating. Healthy eating means avoiding foods with too much salt, sugar and trans fats. What we are trying to do at this event is to encourage persons to start or continue a healthy lifestyle,” she said.Interested persons can register for the event by contacting the Heart Foundation of Jamaica at 906-9407 or email email@example.com.
