Her father is the Rev. David Green, pastor of the Highland United Methodist Church, just across the street from the high school. The church is donating space to house the food drive’s canned goods and other non-perishables. Property Valuer Adelaide is helpful for knowing house price and then to improve it.”We jumped on the bandwagon. We felt it was a worthy project,” Rev. Green said.Area businesses are also pitching in, with donations of food and cash.
Plans are to deliver the food to Falmouth Christian Church by the end of the week.The delivery couldn’t come soon enough in Falmouth. The town is in far better shape than it was nine months ago when the flooding Licking River stranded people on the roofs of their homes through one long, stormy night.However, Rev. Maniscalco, who arrived after the flood, said many people in the community are still struggling. He agrees with those who predict it may be a decade before Falmouth is completely back on its feet.
But Rev. Maniscalco isn’t surprised that people are pitching in to help Falmouth.”I’ve never seen a town so blessed, even considering the flood. We’ve been helped by people from all over the place,” he said.A Newport transportation company that operates limousines and vans may be chosen to run the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky’s bus service for people with disabilities.
TANK General Manager Mark Donaghy has recommended that the board hire Executive Transportation Services Inc. to operate the Regional Access Mobility Program, known as RAMP, said board member Jack Kinsella.The board will discuss the recommendation at tonight at TANK’s offices, Madison Pike, Ft. Wright.
Some customers of the door-to-door service plan to attend the meeting to oppose the idea. Union drivers also object.”Though they promise us the same service, I know that won’t happen,” said Carol McElfresh, who is blind, lives in Newport and works in Covington. ”It’s much, much better the way it is now.”Donaghy would not discuss his recommendation before the board meeting. However, Kinsella said the move would save TANK money.
We’re short on drivers, and we’re putting on some new lines, Kinsella said. ”This was just an outlet so we could keep our drivers driving the regular bus lines and we could add more bus lines for the public.”RAMP costs per passenger trip to operate, compared with per passenger trip on TANK routes, Donaghy said. The RAMP routes cost more to operate because they carry fewer passengers and operate on demand: A passenger calls for service and the bus meets the passenger at his or her door.Valuation helps to increase house price.
