Interstate 66

Interstate 66 is an Interstate Highway in the eastern United States. As indicated by its route number, it runs in an east–west direction, its western terminus is near Middletown, Virginia, at an interchange with I-81. C. at an interchange with U. S. Route 29; because of its terminus in the Shenandoah Valley, the highway was once called the "Shenandoah Freeway." Much of the route parallels U. S. Route 29 or Virginia State Route 55. Interstate 66 has no physical or historical connection to the famous U. S. Route 66, in a different region of the United States; the E Street Expressway is a spur from Interstate 66 into the Foggy Bottom neighborhood of Washington, D. C; because I-66 is the only Interstate Highway traveling west from Washington, D. C. into Northern Virginia, traffic on the road is extremely heavy. For decades, there has been talk of widening I-66 from 2 to 3 lanes each way inside the Capital Beltway through Arlington County, although many Arlington residents are adamantly opposed to this plan.

In 2005, the Virginia Department of Transportation studied the prospect of implementing a one-lane-plus-shoulder extension on westbound I-66 within the Beltway. In the summer of 2010, construction began on a third lane and a 12-foot shoulder lane on westbound I-66 between the highway's Fairfax Drive entrance ramp and its Sycamore Street exit ramp, a 1.9 mile distance. The entrance ramp acceleration lane and the exit ramp deceleration lanes were lengthened to form a continuous lane between both ramps; the 12-foot shoulder lane can be used in emergency situations. This project was completed in December 2011; the Orange Line and the Silver Line of the Washington Metro operate in the median of the highway in Fairfax and Arlington counties. Four stations are located along this segment of I-66. I-66 east has two exit ramps, one from each side of the highway, to the Inner Loop of I-495 heading northbound. One is a two lane right exit which merges down to one lane halfway along the ramp, while a second exit ramp is a left exit.

Both exit ramps for the Inner Loop merge prior to merging from the left with the Inner Loop. There is no access from the Outer Loop of I-495 to I-66 east. I-66 east has two exits, one from each side of the highway, to the Outer Loop of I-495. One is a right exit. I-66 is named the "Custis Memorial Parkway" east of the Capital Beltway in Virginia; the name commemorates the Custis family, several of whose members played prominent roles in Northern Virginia's history. Due to heavy commuter traffic, I-66 features a variety of high-occupancy vehicle restrictions. Between US 15 in Haymarket and the Capital Beltway, the left lane on eastbound I-66 is reserved for vehicles with two or more occupants from 5:30 to 9:30 a.m. on weekdays, the left lane on westbound I-66 is reserved for HOV-2 traffic from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m on weekdays. Between the Beltway and the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge, the eastbound roadway is a HOT road from 5:30 to 9:30 a.m. and the westbound roadway is a HOT road from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. E-ZPass is required for all vehicles except motorcycles, including Dulles Airport users.

I-66 is free during those times for motorcycles. Other drivers must pay a toll which can be $50 at peak times; the Virginia Department of Transportation Transportation planning board has added I-66 HOT lanes to their list of priority projects for the I-66 corridor. The projects have sparked opposition between residents and community businesses over the direction of this region's future infrastructure planning; the VDOT established a "Transform 66" website on regional traffic issues. Residents living within the I-66 corridor have set up "Transform 66 Wisely", a website describing local community impacts that the VDOT projects may cause. In contrast, local business groups and Chambers of Commerce located near the affected areas have voiced support for transportation improvements in the I-66 region. Residents along the I-66 corridor such as Arlington County have resisted I-66 widening proposals for many years; the local Stenwood Elementary School would lose its attached field, leaving it with blacktop-only recess space.

In an April 16, 2015, letter to the Virginia Secretary of Transportation, members of the 1st, 8th, 10th, 11th districts of Congress wrote that VDOT research noted that during peak hours, 35% of eastbound cars and 50% of westbound cars are HOV violators. Future federal steps for VDOT include NEPA review, obligation of federal funds, certification that the conversion to tolled facilities will not "degrade" the existing facility, potential federal loan guarantee; the Virginia Commonwealth Transportation Board is responsible for overseeing VDOT and allocating highway funding to specific projects. The board has 18 members appointed by the Governor and includes the Virginia Secretary of Transportation, Aubrey Layne, is the group that will be making the final decision and allocating funding for VDOT’s plans for I-66.

The Georgetown Herald

The Georgetown Herald was a weekly newspaper published in Georgetown, Ontario from 1867 to 1992. Isaac Hunter, the son of John Hunter, Postmaster of nearby Ashgrove, established the newspaper in 1866. Isaac launched the paper for the 1400 strong village on May 3, 1866 after dissolving his 18 month partnership with Robert Matheson, the two having worked on the Canadian Champion and County of Halton Intelligencer; this was not an amicable split, with the Herald attacking the Reform politics of the Champion in its early days, until financier of the Herald William Barber stepped in. Isaac had launched the paper as one aligned with Colonel George King Chisholm and the Conservatives, the Colonel being the son of Oakville’s founder, its first mayor, elected to the seat for County of Halton, it was not the first newspaper founded in Georgetown and not without its own share of troubles. During the first three decades, the paper passed through a number of different editors/proprietors, including Mr. Hunter until 1869, Joseph & Richard Craig, Nelson Burns, Thomas Starret, two of its longer overseers, Robert D. Warren for fifteen years and Walter Biehn for thirty-three, before he sold it to the Thompson Newspaper Chain.

A fire in 1871 did only minor damage to the paper's offices. In April 1918 the Herald could not escape another fire, which gutted the offices destroying its records and presses, the press itself crashing through the top floor into the basement. Thanks to their connection to the Acton Free Press and editor Henry P. Moore they did not miss an issue; the paper itself was four pages, printed on one side, with a Thursday morning publishing before moving to Wednesdays. An annual subscription was $1 pre-1916, $1.50 afterwards, up to $7.50 by the 1970s. Being a paper-making town, the early advertisements concerned the mills and their products, such as the Barber brothers’ industries. Local news was refer to as “Local Intelligence” and County Council proceedings would be transcribed with crowd reactions, or an advertisement for a marriage license by the paper’s founder, Isaac Hunter; the paper’s acquisition in 1886 by Robert D. Warren saw it move to 103 Main Street South in 1890 to share a building with the Georgetown branch of the Bank of Hamilton.

Warren had been born near Acton on an active member of the Baptist denomination. He married Clara E. Bessey of Esquesing Township in 1901, before his career as a publisher had been a schoolteacher and clerk. During his life he served as Warden of Halton Reeve for Georgetown, he operated Herald Steam Printing House, which opened in 1888. Aside from the Herald, Warren bought out the Halton Conservator, which ran from 1901 until 1906. Joseph M. Moore connected to the Moores of the Acton Free Press, became foreman in 1891, bringing in a linotype machine in 1928, partner and owner until his passing in 1939. Walter Biehn owned the paper starting in 1940, through the 50s and 60s, with his wife Mary writing the local events column, “Chatting”. Mary ran the business. Walter found time to be a town councillor, Chairman of Georgetown Board of Education, Lion’s Club member; the paper came to an end after the February 19th, 1992 edition, with publisher Robert Malcomson and editor Colin Gibson at the helm. After 125 years of serving the Halton Hills communities, the Thompson Newspapers chain cited “poor financial result and limited prospect for improvement” as reason why.

Ljubljana Power Station

The Ljubljana Power Station is a coal-fired heat and power station in the Moste District of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. It delivers 90% of the remote generated heat in Ljubljana. About 74% of Ljubljana households use district heating; the power station consists of three units, which went in service in 1966, 1967, 1984, generate 42 MW, 32 MW, 50 MW of electric power. The 101 metre tall chimney at 46°3′28.9″N 14°32′40.9″E has a gallery that resembles an observation deck. However, it contains equipment for exhaust monitoring; the Ljubljana Power Station uses coal procured from Indonesia and 15% biomass, about 100,000 tons of woodchips per year. In the past, coal was supplied from Slovenian Central Sava Valley coal mines.
