Sale of Local Golf Course Complete: New Ownership Shares PlansNORTH CLARENDON, VT (June 13, 2007) – Stonehedge Golf Course announced today that the course has been purchased by Richard “Dick” Bendig and his two sons, Shawn and Chriss. The 9-hole course, Rutland County’s only par-3 golf offering, features 1,107 yards of rolling fairways and well-manicured greens. The course was designed and operated by Robert Matson since 1995.”We are very pleased to have completed the sale and excited about the possibilities this course has to offer local golfers,” said Richard Bendig, President of Stonehedge. “The real beauty of the course lies in its versatility. For the accomplished golfer, we offer an affordable way for them to improve their short game. For the senior golfer, we provide a 9-hole course that can be easily walked or ridden in just over an hour. And, finally, for the younger/novice golfer, we strive to create an atmosphere that allows them to learn the game at their own pace.””I’ve been playing golf for over 20 years and can still remember what it felt like the first time I stepped onto a tee box at a larger, traditional golf course& Simply put, I found the experience to be rather stressful and unpleasant,” said fellow course owner Shawn Bendig. “Here at Stonehedge, one of our primary goals is allowing the less experienced golfer to feel at ease on the course and enjoy their round of golf. Judging from the conversations that we have had with some of our customers and the smiles I’ve seen on their faces as they come off the 9th green, I’d say we’re heading in the right direction.””We are thrilled with how well course conditions have improved in the past two months,” said Chriss Bendig, the final member of the new ownership team. “Our turf manager has the greens playing better every week!”Stonehedge Golf Course is located on 216 Squire Road in North Clarendon, VT 05759 (directly behind Automobile International at the junction of Routes 7 and 103). The course will continue to operate seven (7) days a week from 7:30AM until 8:30PM.For more information or to reserve a tee time, contact:Stonehedge Golf Course ClubhousePh: 1-802-773-2666Website (coming soon): www.stonehedgegolf.com(link is external)

Bruce Pang, head of macro and strategy research at China Renaissance, said Tuesday that the decline in prices was due to an increase in the supply of live pigs, and that he expects further year-on-year declines in pork prices in the current quarter.Overall inflation in China as measured by the consumer price index is likely to decline, Pang said.The consumer price index rose 0.5% in October from a year ago, the statistics bureau said. Overall food prices climbed 2.2%, with fresh vegetable prices rising 16.7%. Beef and lamb prices also rose, up 7% and 3.6%, respectively. Breeders feed piglets at a pig farm on May 12, 2020 in Bijie, Guizhou Province of China.Deng Gang | Visual China Group | Getty Images Looking ahead, China’s pork supply is set to recover further from the recent shortage.Zhao Guangyu, agriculture goods analyst at Nanhua Futures, said the stock of reproductive sows has entered a period of “accelerated recovery,” according to CNBC’s translation of a Chinese-language statement.Zhao expects imports of pork and central government auctions of meat from its frozen reserves to continue their increase through the end of this year, adding to supply while consumption demand remains steady.For the first three quarters of the year, China’s imports of pork more than doubled from a year ago, the national customs agency said last month.However, that growth is set to fade.In China’s plans for the next five years, the central Chinese government has specifically stated that ensuring national food security will be a priority. That would reduce China’s reliance on agriculture imports from countries such as the U.S. and Australia, with whom Beijing’s relations have become tense“After a torrid pace in 2020, China pork imports are forecast down 6 percent (in 2021) due to the rebound in domestic production,” the U.S. Department of Agriculture Foreign Agricultural Service said in a quarterly report dated Oct. 9. The agency predicts a 9% increase in Chinese pork production, but notes it will still be nearly 25% lower than prior to the disease outbreak.Imports will account for only about 11% of Chinese pork consumption this year, according to data from the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service.The report said U.S. pork exports next year will likely remain about the same, at 3.3 million tons as growth in Mexico, Japan and other markets offset weaker demand from China. – Advertisement – BEIJING — Prices of pork in China fell for the first time in more than a year, after months of surging prices for the country’s most popular meat.Pork prices fell 2.8% in October from a year ago, China’s National Bureau of Statistics said Tuesday. The drop was the first since February 2019, or more than a year-and-a-half ago.Prices doubled last fall and continued their rapid rise into this spring as African swine fever killed swaths of pig herds in China. The pace of increase began to slow in the last few months.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – – Advertisement –

August 10, 2016 Human Services, Press Release, Public Health, Substance Use Disorder Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf and Department of Human Services Secretary Ted Dallas visited Resources for Human Development’s Montgomery County Recovery Center, a Center of Excellence in Norristown, to discuss the significant strides made in the 2016-17 budget to combat the opioid abuse and heroin use epidemic in Pennsylvania. The Wolf Administration successfully secured the necessary funding for DHS to open 20 Centers of Excellence (COEs) statewide by October 1, 2016.“I am thrilled that by working with Republicans and Democrats, we have achieved this level of funding for our fight against this public health crisis,” said Governor Wolf. “Now that this year’s budget is complete, it is imperative that we all continue working together to focus on Pennsylvania’s opioid abuse and heroin use epidemic. While the budget allows us to expand treatment for individuals suffering from addiction, we can and should do more to address this matter that is plaguing all of our communities. My administration will keep its focus on this issue and I will continue preparing for the upcoming special session.”“We are honored to join a community of providers fighting the national opioid epidemic,” said Linda Donovan-Magdamo, Executive Vice President of RHD’s Pennsylvania Behavioral Health & Housing Division. “RHD’s Montgomery County Recovery Center is committed to participating actively in the learning network collaborative that arises out of this initiative. RHD has long been at the forefront of innovative, person-centered programs for people in addiction recovery and we’re thrilled to see MCMC recognized for its excellence of service and dedication to the people of Pennsylvania.”“This is a wonderful opportunity implement a holistic approach to service, and enhance MCRC’s commitment to care for the whole person,” Montgomery County Recovery Center director Marie McCartney said. “This award from DHS will double the capacity of our program, expanding the essential services we offer to people in our community who are in dire need of support.”The current path of treatment for people who have opioid-related substance use disorders can be confusing and difficult to navigate. The links between behavioral health treatment and physical health treatment are often broken or not made at all. This means people may drop out of treatment after they receive care for their physical symptoms, bypassing critical components of care such as behavioral therapies and connection to community supports that can lead to meaningful recovery from substance use disorder.The Centers of Excellence are a central, efficient hub around which treatment revolves. These centers will have navigators to assist people with opioid-related substance use disorders though the medical system, and ensure they receive behavioral and physical health care, as well as any evidence-based medication-assisted treatment needed.The use of medication (like buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone), coupled with wrap-around supportive services, can prevent people from relapsing and improve their chances for recovery, ultimately driving the aforementioned statistics in the opposite direction.The Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs will license the COEs as drug and alcohol providers that provide one of the three FDA-approved medications.DHS is currently working with its actuaries to determine whether additional COEs can be funded by analyzing the impact they will have on the physical and behavioral health Medicaid managed care rates.For more information about the Centers of Excellence, visit www.dhs.pa.govLike Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf In Norristown, Governor Wolf Touts Strides Made in 2016-17 Budget to Combat Opioid Epidemic SHARE Email Facebook Twitter
