Update: El Faro Confirmed to Be Found

first_imgThe wreckage found at the bottom of the ocean on the 31st of October has been confirmed to be the ill-fated El Faro cargo ship, that sank on October 1st having succumbed to the strong winds of the Hurricane Joaquin, the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said in an update.​A search team on board the USNS Apache found the wreckage at a depth of about 15,000 feet in the vicinity of the ship’s last known position.Snar equipment towed from Apache first detected what were believed to be images of the vessel using Orion, a side-scanning sonar system, at about 1:36 pm ET on October 31 during the fifth of 13 planned search line surveys. To confirm the finding, specialists on Apache used CURV 21, a deep ocean remotely operated vehicle, to survey and confirm the identity of the wreckage.The target identified by Orion appears to be in an upright position and in one piece, based on the findings.The NTSB will now proceed with the documentation of the vessel and the debris field and attempt to locate and recover the voyage data recorder. Those operations are expected to take up to 15 days to complete in ideal conditions but could take longer depending on weather and conditions encountered during the documentation process.Survey of the area and vessel continues, NTSB said.The El Faro, a 735-foot ro-ro cargo ship owned by TOTE Maritime, carrying 33 crew members onboard was en route to San Juan, Puerto Rico, from Jacksonville, Florida when it went missing.The crew consisted of 28 U.S. citizens and five Polish nationals.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

The retro ones aren’t that bad, in fact they’re kind of nice, in a retro sort of way.

A “personality change” from the past ten years will be a good start. 1) In order to be held in high esteem, one must do esteemable things. 2) Fiscal prudence and integrity are everything. Err on the side of fiscal caution; a pickle cannot be turned back into a cucumber.

I’ve been saying on along there is too much negativity, which shines a bad light on Wellington. Its time to change and make the town a better place to live, work and play. It takes little changes to yield into big ones.

Report Reply 0 replies · active 11 weeks ago +7 Vote up Vote down Just Asking · 11 weeks ago James-I will play along with your comments if you’ll explain just which “narratives” Wellington needs to change? How do we change the narrative of higher sales tax than surrounding communities? How do we change the narrative about failed hospital? Since stating “You can talk about the good old days all you want, but they are not coming back, and they may not have really been all that good.” I was wondering how you would know since you grew up in Tennessee rather than Wellington? People constantly state this passage, but how do you know what Wellington was like in “the good old days” and whether they may not have been good? Sometimes I think your’re the “Clone of Cueball” which such statements, but then again I’m just asking exactly what narratives you believe should be changed. Wellington use to be a vibrant farming community, it lost it ways long ago in 1970s from my viewpoint. All it takes is dwelling somewhere else and returning to your home town to notice what is right and wrong in many ways.

Then I would say that up to the 80’s were the good ol days for Wellington.

Don’t look to local leaders because they don’t live in that part of town. I left in the mid nineties and moved back eleven years ago. It’s gone down hill since I’ve been back. My class mates don’t live here and look down on those of us who stayed or moved back. I have wonderful peers who I wish lived here still but are mostly embarrassed by even being from this town. I do not blame them. Meth and lazy young adults Who leech off the system are destroying this community and have been for quite a long time. Low income housing public transportation and alcoholism are at the peek of the major issues. Why dare I say public transport is a bad thing? Lazy unmotivated adults do t want to walk 15 minutes. Lazy and addicted! If the meth heads left and former drug heads left this town would improve. Tigers don’t change their stripes folks so wake up. It’s the citizens !

For years, I have heard doom and gloom about Wellington, and as the saying goes, nothing much has changed. The complaints have not changed much either.James JordanIf you want change to happen you have to do something different. You can talk about the good old days all you want, but they are not coming back, and they may not have really been all that good. You can also gripe and moan about problems, but that has never solved anything either.Wellington is not unique in its struggles. There are a lot of small towns in rural America with the same issues – health care, housing, employment – and they are usually the big issues. Wellington is not the most vibrant small rural town I have seen, but it is also far from the worst.The city is working on a strategic plan and is seeking public input. One of the goals of the plan is to “change the narrative” about the city. You can access the survey and get more on the strategic plan here.The narrative is currently that Wellington is a dying small town. There is some truth to that idea, and it is true for a lot of small towns in rural America. There are some exceptions however, and those exceptions happen because of the narrative changes.At a recent city meeting a study by Wichita State was presented. What it said was pretty clear, and not surprising.  There is not enough quality affordable housing in town to attract industry which could make the town grow, or at least stop the downward trend overall. Developers or builders are not attracted to the town when the suburbs of Wichita are growing and more profitable.It is a downward spiral, and now there is a study to prove it. The question is now what do we do about it. I think changing the narrative would be a good start.The city is in a bad spot in some ways. It is “too close” to Wichita. Businesses, and developers, would rather go there and to the suburbs than to Wellington. It is hard to compete with that. Yet Wellington also has some positives. Being close to Wichita is also a positive, and could be a way to get people to move here. It is close enough to the Interstate to make that also a plus.But what if we did change the narrative.I have traveled a lot in rural America. Texas to Tennessee, and Montana to the gulf coast. I avoid Interstates as much as possible and go through a lot of small towns. You can tell a lot about a town pretty quickly. It is easy to see if there is any community pride – and if there the town might be worth a stop.Sometimes the first appearance isn’t accurate but very often it is.I can give one real example of a town that changed its narrative. They even changed their name from Jonesboro to Jonesborough.This is a small town in Tennessee near where I grew up. The big four-lane highway passed about a quarter of a mile away and Jonesboro was forgotten. It was the county seat, but the bigger town a few miles away was on the freeway and kept growing.When I was a teenager it was a place I ignored just like everyone else did.But somewhere along the line someone decided to change the narrative. The town had an interesting history and several houses built before 1800. It was the first town west of the Appalachian Mountains. It was the capital of the state of Franklin, a short-lived attempt at seceding from North Carolina and starting a new state. The rebellion lasted only a few months, but it is still an interesting history. Davey Crocket was born nearby, and President Andrew Jackson was born there.It is on a hillside and has a very picturesque main street with a very old courthouse. Merchants all decorate for each season in a coordinated effort.In the 70s and even 80s it was a dying town and did not have a hotel or even a real restaurant. Today, you have to reserve a bed and breakfast room months in advance and it will cost you at least $200 per night. There are several really good restaurants now, along with antique shops and a lot more.Jonesboro had a lot of obstacles, but it changed the narrative and became the historic town of Jonesborough. It wasn’t that they just changed how they talked about the town. The way they talked about it did change their actions and that made the difference.What do you think could happen if the narrative changed in Wellington?Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
