Lack of lighting, signage and faded road markings are among the problems at the mini-roundabout on Foldgate Lane in Ludlow which need to be addressed as “a matter of urgency”, according to Councillor Vivienne Parry.
She said: “This roundabout near ‘Pets are Us’ and the ‘Squirrel’ on Foldgate Lane has been in for some time now and there are still no signs to warn motorists or indicate who has right of way.
“The road markings are also worn. As a result, I’ve had a number of complaints about near misses at this roundabout.
“I know of one visiting motorist who told me he drove over it not realising that there was a roundabout there.”
“Also the street lights covering this area have progressively ceased to function over the last few years making the whole area much darker after sunset.
“Given the number of

AUSTIN (Nexstar) – Imagine showing up to a job where you know that almost 75% of what you do will fail someone. What if a fireman failed to help someone in three out of four fire calls? What if a police officer failed to help clear three out of four 911 calls?
Day, after day.
That’s what a contractor helping field calls for the Texas Workforce Commission told us was going on inside some of the agency’s call centers. The contractor, who asked to not be identified in this report, told KXAN the problem facing nearly every caller is that their call may be answered by people who have no way to help Texans calling for help with their unemployment problems.
This worker said they’re unable to help about three-quarters of the people who call with unemployment problems.
Since the pandemic hit in mid-March, hundreds of unemployed Texans wrote to

The unused houses are among 40,000 privately owned properties lying vacant across Scotland.
Experts say the situation is harming communities in some small towns and action should be taken to halt a “spiral of decline” and encourage regeneration.
The Scottish Empty Homes Partnership (SEHP), set up to help local authorities to bring empty properties back into use, has published new data showing more than five per cent of properties in Galashiels and Hawick were classified as long-term empty in each of the past four years.

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) – The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office on Monday provided an update to its investigation into a Friday afternoon crash near Viola that killed four children and their mother.
The sheriff’s office said the family’s SUV was traveling southbound on 263rd Street West when the driver of a grain truck, traveling east on 71st Street South, failed to stop at the stop sign at the intersection. The intersection of 263rd Street West and 71st Street South is where the SUV hit the rear of the grain truck’s trailer after the truck’s driver ran the sign, deputies said.
Sedgwick County is looking to make changes to the intersection with the goal of preventing another tragedy at the spot north of Viola

the window emporium told us she was busy scheduling installations and would call us by Friday. Apparently she must have meant Friday in another era.
Finally when I inquired, she said, “Oh, yes, your installation has been scheduled… for October 20th.” When was she going to inform us of this, October 19th? I get coffee nearly every morning at my local Cumberland Farms, and I’m there quite early, so I see all the local guys: plumbing, HVAC, construction, remodeling, glass, drywall, and the like. They have all invested a lot of money in mobile advertising, for they all have big trucks that are either wrapped or professionally painted with their logo, their email, their phone number, their website, and their mother’s shoe size. Some of them even have slogans or catch phrases describing their brand of customer service, i.e. “We treat every customer as though they were our only one!”

People with coronavirus symptoms have been asked not to call the government’s testing hotline on Monday mornings to avoid overburdening the system.
The national network of community health services (GGDs) said its lines remained open from 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week, but advised people to ‘avoid the Monday morning rush’ and call later in the day.
The Dutch testing infrastructure is operating close to capacity following a recent surge in cases, leading to delays in processing test results. Last Thursday the GGDs admitted it was almost impossible to book a coronavirus test within 48 hours at the 100 testing stations.
Vermijd de maandagochtend drukte en maak later vandaag een afspraak als je klachten hebt. Onze medewerkers van 0800-1202 zijn 7 dagen per week van 08.00 tot 20.00 uur bereikbaar. https://t.co/XYQNpTqSCQ
