A draft proposal for a package of tourism laws was presented at the Ministry of Tourism

first_imgThe Ministry of Tourism presented a draft proposal for a package of tourism laws: Law on Tourist Boards and Promotion of Croatian Tourism,  The Law on Tourist Tax and the Law on Membership Fees in Tourist Boards, which are from September 19, 2018. at a public hearing. Proposals and comments from the public will be collected through the e-Counseling portal until October 18, 2018.These are draft laws aimed at increasing the overall efficiency of the system of tourist boards, especially at the regional and local level, ensuring all the preconditions for the systematic implementation of destination management  and securing a sufficient source of funding.  CAPPELLI: By decentralizing the system, more funds will be received and managed by the local levels”This whole reform package of tourism laws has common goals: to decentralize the system, depoliticize it, professionalize it and contribute to balanced development. The existing legislative framework once corresponded well to the needs, but now this is no longer the case and has become a limiting factor for the overall development of tourism in the Republic of Croatia and strengthening the competitiveness of our country in terms of tourism. We are bringing the system exactly where it needs to be, in the 21st century. Our tourism should be the impetus for the development of the entire economy of the country, all other activities, as well as generate new jobs. I especially emphasize the decentralization of the system where larger funds will be received and managed by local levels, while the role of the National Tourism Organization will be focused on the foreign tourism policy of the Republic of Croatia in terms of promotional activities.” stressed the Minister of Tourism of the Republic of Croatia Gary Cappelli.STANIČIĆ: CNTB becomes a national marketing institution Calling on all interested citizens and stakeholders in the tourism sector to join the discussion and point out possible further improvements and changes with their constructive proposals, all in order to maintain the competitive position of Croatian tourism and organize the system of tourist boards, said Croatian Tourist Board Director Kristjan Stanicic.The proposed legal framework contains changes aimed at developing and strengthening destination management at the local and regional level, redefining the tasks of all levels of the tourist board system, and the CNTB seeks to position itself as a national marketing institution with key tasks aimed at strengthening brand recognition in the international market. Also, in order to ensure quality implementation of tasks according to the new model, a different distribution of revenues of the tourist board system is envisaged, with emphasis on strengthening the financial resources of regional tourist boards, as well as encouraging the association of tourist boards in joint projects and tasks.”Photo: MINTLess TZ, focus on DMC / New revenue distribution in the tourist board systemRegarding the Law on Tourist Boards and the Promotion of Croatian Tourism, we remind you that the existing system has 310 tourist boards of various levels, tasks and powers that are pyramid-shaped. The most comprehensive changes to the reform of the existing system relate to  establishing a system of tourist boards according to the principle of destination management with an emphasis on depoliticization, rationalization and encouraging consensual association. The new system leaves the pyramid structure due to the changing tasks of the tourist boards themselves and ultimately so that all the set goals can be met.  CNTB, which represents the National Tourist Organization, leaves the care of tourist boards in terms of supervision and coordination and focuses on promoting our country outside the borders of the Republic of Croatia in eminent markets in order to better position the country in the world tourism market.  The tasks of regional and local tourist organizations are now more precisely defined and the scale has been raised when we talk about what is expected of them, Stanisic points out and adds that in order for the system to fulfill new tasks that are much more demanding, it was necessary to redefine the distribution of sojourn tax and membership fees. .Thus, according to the new model, regional tourist boards will receive 15% of revenues from the tourist tax and membership fees, which is five percent more than before. According to the new distribution, the Croatian Tourist Board NTO will receive 20 percent, which is five percent less than before, and local tourist boards in the percentage remain at the same level as before – or 65 percent of total revenues.The goal of the new Law on Tourist Tax is decentralizationRegarding the proposal of the Law on Tourist Tax the main goals of the system reform are decentralization, strengthening the development potential of tourism and supporting underdeveloped areas.  The reason for the changes is the large disparity in the tourism development of the maritime and continental counties to the Adriatic counties, which generate higher revenues from the sojourn tax, while for the continental counties the membership fee is the basic income. Decentralization is manifested in the fact that the decision on the amount of sojourn tax will no longer be made by the Government of the Republic of Croatia at the proposal of the Ministry of Tourism, but by the County Assembly, ie the City Assembly of Zagreb, for each city / municipality.  “Of course, for this, the necessary framework will be set within which the amount of the sojourn tax will have to move. In this way, the counties are given the authority to decide on the amount of the sojourn tax in accordance with the tourism development of individual cities and municipalities, and the development strategy, and thus influence the amount of income for their area. ” stand out from the Ministry of Tourism.The new draft law also establishes a new distribution of funds from the tourist taxThe novelty is the Fund for United Tourist Boards, which was mentioned earlier, and the new distribution, which gives regional tourist boards five percent more. Regarding the distribution of tourist tax in nautical, so far the distribution of funds has been based on the model that 40% of funds were paid to the tourist community in which nautical traffic is realized, 10% to national parks and nature parks in which nautical traffic is realized, and the remaining 50 % CNTB.The new key implies new proportions, 65 percent to the tourist board, 15 percent to the national parks and nature parks in whose area nautical traffic is realized, and the remaining 20% ​​to the Croatian Tourist Board. In addition, during the drafting of this law, special care was taken of all assisted areas which, after classification by classes, in the new proposal are classified in the first to fourth groups for which the tourist tax can be determined in the amount reduced by up to 30%. development.The law on membership fees in tourist boards no longer has to be paid by all entrepreneurs Regarding the Law on Membership Fees in Tourist Boards, According to the Minister of Tourism, the guiding thread in drafting this Act was certainly to reduce the administrative burden on entrepreneurs, craftsmen and all private renters and a fairer model of coverage of taxpayers as well as the distribution of funds paid from membership fees.With the new proposal, banks are obliged to pay membership fees in the part for income in the balance sheet from the group “income from fees and commissions” – given that their income in this business segment increases significantly during the heart of the tourist year. With a new proposal the number of membership fee rates is reduced from the current 28 to 5 and part of the membership fee is deleted: activities such as sea and coastal transport of goods, operation of sports facilities, computer programming, information services, translation and interpreter services, artistic creation, hairdressing salons and beauty salons.  In relation with  administrative relief, it is crucial to point out that the membership fee for private renters and family farms will be paid with the new model in a lump sum, ie per bed – thus the Ministry of Tourism points out that they simplify the membership fee model for these two groups of entities. more just. In the draft, special care was taken about assisted areas where the membership fee is 20% less than prescribed.Get involved in a constructive discussion because it is about your future. Now is your chance to give your suggestions, criticisms, advice and loud reflections.Attachment:1.Proposal of the Law on Tourist Boards and Promotion of Croatian Tourism2. Proposal of the Law on Tourist Tax3. Proposal of the Law on Membership Fees in Tourist Boardslast_img read more

Georgia family finds owl hiding in their Christmas tree

first_imgJust a few days before Christmas, a Georgia family discovered a owl hiding in their Christmas tree.According to reports the family found the owl on their Christmas tree on Thursday, December 12th. They had bought the 10-foot tree from a Home Depot, and brought it back to their Atlanta area home.Katie McBride Newman said that she and her daughter spotted the bird. Newman said her daughter is a big fan of owls, so the tree actually had owl ornament decorations all around it.“It was surreal, but we weren’t really freaked out about it,” McBride Newman said. “We’re really outdoorsy people. We love the wilderness.”The family eventually called for assistance in order to remove the owl from their tree. They called the Chattahoochee Nature Center, a non-profit environmental center.One of the employees stopped by the McBride Newman residence and identified it as an Eastern screech owl. The family was instructed to leave the bird in a crate in a darkened room and release it after dark.last_img read more

Trump Retweets Post Naming Alleged Whistleblower

first_imgPresident Trump retweeted a post on Friday night that included the alleged name of the anonymous whistleblower whose complaint led to the president’s recent impeachment by the House over his communications with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.The tweet later disappeared, but Twitter says that a glitch was hiding those retweets and many others.The social media outlet explained the software bug in a statement Saturday night, stating: “Due to an outage with one of our systems, tweets on account profiles were visible to some, but not others. We’re still working on fixing this and apologize for any confusion.”Trump has shared more than 100 posts about the whistleblower over the past three months but had not mentioned or inferred any names until this weekend.However, Trump retweeted a message just before midnight Friday from Twitter user @surfermom77. That account claims to be a California resident named Sophia. She describes herself as a “100%Trump Supporter.” The account had nearly 79,000 followers as of Saturday afternoon.Some of the previous posts from that account have denounced Islam and criticized former President Barack Obama and other Democrats.U.S. whistleblower laws exist in order to protect the identities and careers of people who bring forth accusations of wrongdoing by government officials.In a statement issued to the Associated Press, Twitter explains the @surfermom77 tweet was “not a violation of the Twitter Rules.”Mr. Trump insists he did nothing wrong in his dealings with Ukraine and asserts that the whistleblower made up the complaint, although other officials have corroborated it. In addition, the president argues that he has a right to face his accuser and is calling on the whistleblower to step forward.last_img read more

Activists and Officials Say ‘No’ to NESE Pipeline

first_imgRED BANK – While addressing a gathering of outraged activists standing up against the Northeast Supply Enhancement Project (NESE), Cindy Zipf, Clean Ocean Action executive director, invoked a famous midnight ride from American Revolutionary lore. Hohenleitner held a homemade sign at the rally that referenced an analysis of comments submitted to the DEP by New Jersey residents concerning the NESE pipeline project. Passing boaters also weighed in.Photo by Patrick Olivero Residents gathered at 10:30 a.m. for the Rally by Land or Sea to demand protection of Raritan Bay and regard for clean water.Photo by Patrick Olivero Several officials spoke at the rally, including Monmouth County Freeholder Gerry P. Scharfenberger, left, and Red Bank Mayor Pasquale Menna.Photo by Patrick Olivero The DEP issued a statement following its ruling articulating that the application did not demonstrate “a compelling public need” and noting concerns that dredging associated with the project could negatively impact surface water quality in the Bayshore region. It’s a future they said isthreatened by the NESEpipeline project, a $1 billionendeavor by the Williamsenergy company to extendits natural gas footprintthroughout the Northeastregion by carrying naturalgas through New Jersey toNew York City and parts ofLong Island. Williams resubmitted theapplication June 10. Hundreds of residents from Monmouth County and beyond, including some elected officials, gathered with Zipf on the banks of the Navesink River in Red Bank to implore New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy and the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to help preserve a healthy future for waterways and coastal communities throughout the state. “I’m sure that the governor has a lot of hard decisions to make over the course of a day, a week, a month, a year. But this is not one of them. This is an easy decision. There is no benefit to New Jersey. It contradicts his green energy agenda. It’s clear the governor has to stand behind the science, the facts and his agenda, and say ‘no’ to NESE,” Zipf said. Clean Ocean Action’s Cindy Zipf spoke at the rally Sept. 14 at Red Bank’s Marine Park, calling for Gov. Phil Murphy to reject the Northeast Supply Enhancement Project proposal.Photo by Patrick Olivero Monmouth County freeholder and state assembly hopeful Gerry P. Scharfenberger, a Middletown resident, said the freeholder board stands united against the NESE pipeline effort for reasons that extend even further than environmental concerns. Murphy was on an economic development trip to India so did not attend the rally, but Zipf urged residents to continue to reach out to the office of the governor and the DEP with comments. On June 5, the DEP denied, without prejudice, six crucial permits requested by the Williams application, which proposes to slice through the heart of the Raritan Bay with 23 miles of pipeline. “These are our communities in jeopardy and I’m an elected official saying you need to hold your elected officials accountable,” Atlantic Highlands council member Lori Hohenleitner said. “Nobody who lives in New Jersey should be for this project, because there is no benefit to anyone living here.” “We have to say ‘no.’ There are really no other consequences to saying ‘yes’ other than corporate greed. The platinum barons are running everything else and now they want to screw up our waterways,” Red Bank mayor Pasquale Menna said. “It’s time to send a message. We’ve had enough of corporations in our waterways. We have to stand up. We have to say ‘no.’ And this is one way to start.” “Our county is one that is dependent on its tourism and commercial fishing industries and we just don’t see the value in this project versus the risks it presents,” Scharfenberger said. Zipf said Clean Ocean Action filed a Freedom of Information Act request to the state for those comments and found approximately 3,900 against the initiative, while just four were in favor. “We’re thrilled to see people joining us by land and by sea,” Zipf said. “And what we’re doing here today is similar to what Paul Revere fought for so many years ago. The colonists wanted to declare independence from England and we want to declare independence from fossil fuels.” In its initial decision, the DEP specifically denied the project’s land-use elements, including a compressor station in Franklin Township – which borders the Raritan River – additional sections of pipeline snaking through nearby Sayreville and Old Bridge and an extension ofthat pipeline through theRaritan Bay to New York. Murphy is expected to make a decision Sept. 25 on Williams’ request for a water permit, which is critical to the project.last_img read more

STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – THURSDAY DECEMBER 15, 2016

first_imgFINISH LINES: B. Wayne Hughes, owner of recently retired three-time champion Beholder, was a Clockers’ Corner visitor Thursday and reported the soon-to-be seven-year-old mare doing well at his Spendthrift Farm in Kentucky where she will be bred to Uncle Mo this spring. “I see her every morning and she’s got herself a partner (in another mare),” Hughes said. “They’ve bonded and they can’t get more than two feet from each other. I’m happy and she’s happy. She’s done everything perfectly.” . . . Santa Anita, which will offer a $1 million guaranteed Late Pick 4 on opening day, also will offer $300,000 guaranteed Late Pick 4 pools on Thursdays, Fridays and holiday Mondays (except Opening Day) throughout the Winter/Spring Meet, as well as a guaranteed $500,000 Late Pick 4 and $100,000 Pick 6 on weekends (except Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 5). STEVENS UNDERGOES HIP SURGERY NEXT WEDNESDAY            Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens will undergo surgery to have his left hip replaced next Wednesday at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica. Winner of more than 5,000 races in North America and a three-time Kentucky Derby winner, the 53-year-old native of Caldwell, Idaho is optimistic things will go well and he eventually can resume his riding career.“I’m looking forward to getting the old hip out of there and a new one in,” Stevens said Thursday morning at Clockers’ Corner. “I’ve never had any issues on my left side. It’s sort of been the workhorse all of my life.“I had Perthes disease (a degenerative ailment) in my right hip as a little kid (at age seven) and then the bad knee and everything, and this thing’s always done all the work, but when it went there was no warning, no nothing. About five months ago it started bugging me, and it seemed like overnight it went south and I knew something wasn’t right. Then when I got the X-rays I knew why.”Asked if he would continue to ride if all went well, Stevens said, “It’s something I’m going to evaluate. It’s too early to say. Even with the outcome (of the surgery), I have to make some decisions. Even if I don’t return to ride competitively, I want to be able to get on horses and be in comfort, but I really don’t know, because this came as such a jolt.“I was looking forward to opening day at Santa Anita and possibly riding Mor Spirit in the Malibu. When I saw the doctor, I literally was looking to get a routine injection. I’m sitting there and the doctor says, ‘I’ve got a space available next Wednesday,” and I said, ‘For what?’ and he said, ‘replacement. Your hip is gone.’ Then he showed me the X-rays, and I was by myself. My wife (Angie) wasn’t with me.“He said I could book the surgery date but I said I wanted to talk with my wife first. I did, and when I called her, she said, ‘Just do it.’ When the doctor came back, I said, ‘Let’s do it.’” RETIRED RIDING CHAMP GOMEZ FOUND DEAD IN TUCSON            The racing world Thursday mourned the passing of riding great Garrett Gomez who was found dead Wednesday in his hometown of Tucson, Arizona. According to several media reports, Gomez, who had been living primarily in Tucson the past two years, was discovered dead at a casino/hotel he had checked into on tribal land near Tucson.Gomez would have been 45 on New Year’s Day.A remarkable talent who was regarded as perhaps the strongest finisher of his era, Gomez was America’s leading rider by money won four consecutive years, from 2006 through 2009. He was voted America’s Eclipse Award champion jockey in 2007 and 2008 and was selected by a vote of jockeys nationwide as winner of Santa Anita’s George Woolf Memorial Jockey Award in 2011.The son of a jockey, Louie Gomez, Garrett last rode at Keeneland in October 2013. He won 3,769 career races and along with agent Ron Anderson, set a single-season record in 2007 by winning 76 added-money races. The following year his mounts accounted for a career high $23,344,351, just $10,000 shy of Jerry Bailey’s all-time single season record.An avid golfer, Gomez, who along with his second wife, Pam, owned a home in nearby Duarte, is survived by four children, a son, Collin, and a daughter, Shelby, from his first marriage, and by a daughter, Amanda, and son, Jared, from his second.            “It’s sad,” former contemporary Gary Stevens said. “He’s at peace now. He was as good a rider as I’ve ever ridden with, a helluva guy and a helluva  competitor. I didn’t like getting beat but when he showed up, he was on his game.“The ride he put up on Blame (defeating Zenyatta by a dramatic head in the 2010 Breeders’ Cup Classic for her lone defeat), he wasn’t healthy when he rode him. He had fallen and I know he was hurting that day, but that’s the kind of athlete he was. He rose to the occasion and overcame pain and was able to get the job done.”Added Jerry Hollendorfer assistant Dan Ward: “He was a super guy who always took care of the workers at the barn after a win. When Ron Anderson had his book, the day after Garrett won a big race he would always ask for names of the grooms to stake them.” BAFFERT HAS ARROGATE, DREFONG ON TARGETBob Baffert is at it again.Trainer of the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years, American Pharoah in 2015, and winner of three straight Breeders’ Cup Classics, the Hall of Fame member who turns 64 on Jan. 13 conditions the apparent successor to soon-to-be-retired California Chrome’s lengthy reign as master of his domain in Juddmonte Farm’s Arrogate, upset winner of Chrome in the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita on Nov. 5.Baffert is considering the $200,000 San Pasqual Stakes on Jan. 1 for Arrogate, who worked five furlongs Tuesday at The Great Race Place in a bullet 58.40, fastest of 77 drills at the distance. The San Pasqual could lead to the $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational at Gulfstream Park on Jan. 28.Baffert also has Breeders’ Cup Sprint winner Drefong in good form for the Grade I Malibu Stakes for three-year-olds at seven furlongs on opening day, Dec. 26, not to mention his primary Triple Crown prospect this year, Mastery, winner of last Saturday’s Grade I Los Alamitos Futurity, who could make his three-year-old debut in the Robert B.
