iStock/Thinkstock(LAKE HALLIE, Wis.) — Three Girl Scouts who were killed in an alleged hit-and-run this weekend have been identified as police claim the 21-year-old suspected driver admitted to “huffing” right before the deadly crash.Jayna Kelley, 9; Autum Helgeson, 10; Haylee Hickle, 10, and her mother, Sara Jo Schneider, 32, were all killed when they were hit by a car while picking up trash along a Wisconsin county highway shortly before noon Saturday, said Lake Hallie police.Another 10-year-old girl was struck and is in the hospital in stable condition, police said.All members of the group — seven children and five adults — “were in the ditch, not on the pavement or gravel shoulder at the time of the crash” and were “wearing green highly visible safety vests,” police said.The suspected driver, 21-year-old Colten Treu of Chippewa Falls, fled but later turned himself in several hours later, police said.Treu and his passenger, who also turned himself in, allegedly told police that right before the crash they “had been intentionally inhaling chemical vapors,” also known as “huffing.”Treu was arrested on four counts of homicide by negligent use of a motor vehicle, five counts of hit and run and four counts of homicide while intoxicated (use of inhalants), police said. He is due in court Monday.Chippewa Falls school district officials said Treu had attended the same school district as the victims.“This is a horrible reminder of our nations epidemic of self-indulging with substance abuse without regard of the consequences,” Lake Hallie Police Chief Cal D. Smokowicz said in a statement Monday. “Words cannot describe our Lake Hallie community’s sorrow for the witnesses, victims, and their families. This senseless crash was completely avoidable.”The Girl Scout community is also grieving.“Our hearts are with our Girl Scout sisters in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin,” Girl Scouts CEO Sylvia Acevedo said in a statement. “No words can ease the pain of a tragedy of this magnitude. Girl Scouts everywhere stand with you during this difficult time.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
The ecosystem approach to fisheries attempts to define objectives for target species, the wider ecosystem, and critically, the fishery itself. Proposals for implementing the approach often include spatial restrictions on harvesting, so it is important to understand how these will affect fishery performance. One metric of potential performance is the probability of encountering exploitable densities of a target species at the scale of fishing operations. The probability of encountering exploitable densities of Antarctic krill, Euphausia superba, at the scale of 1 nautical mile during an acoustic survey was predicted by bathymetry and the mean krill density at the larger scale at which the fishery is managed. This suggests that the risk to fishery performance will increase if management actions relocate the fishery into deeper water. The results also suggest that ecosystem models resolved to the spatial scale of management units could usefully predict effects at the scale of fishing operations. However, correct parameterization of these models will require better characterization of threshold densities for efficient exploitation. Finally, the distribution of catch and fishing effort over an entire fishing season reflected the distribution of krill density observed during the survey.
The UK housing market is dividing even harder along regional lines with sales activity and house price rises still healthy and even improving outside London and the Home Counties but continuing to struggle within them, says RICS.Its market snapshot for August reveals a ‘downbeat’ but stabilising property market in London, continuing problems in the South East and East Anglia but rising prices and activity in Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Midlands, Yorkshire and Humberside.In Northern Ireland 48% more RICS estate agents said the number of homes being sold had risen during August and in Scotland 36% more agents reported increased sales too.But across the UK the number of estate agents reporting a fall in sales volumes increased by 10%, the most negative reading in five months, says RICS.It says the main reasons for low level of activity in the market include Brexit uncertainty, the historically low levels of stock held by estate agents and the recent interest rise decision by the Bank of England, which has reduced buyer appetite.Some 15% of agents told RICS they saw fewer new instructions during August.“It is clearly very difficult to talk about the housing market at the moment without being acutely aware of the marked differences in trends across the UK,” says Simon Rubinsohn, RICS Chief Economist (left).“As the latest RICS results highlights, in many parts of the country the housing market actually remains quite firm.“While a combination of a lack of stock and some level of uncertainty, both relating to the interest rate outlook and Brexit, has had an impact on activity, the overall picture in these areas is still encouraging.”Russell Quirk, CEO of eMoov, says: Sales are stabilising in the capital and when this translates to positive price movement, London will reclaim its crown as the UK’s price growth front runner. In the meantime, both sales and price growth remain very strong in other regions and these areas will continue to carry their weaker counterparts as we approach the finish line for 2018.

Central Avenue at the south end of Ocean City in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy in October 2012. The “Building Ecological Solutions to Coast Community Hazards” grant comes in response to Sandy is designed to improve New Jersey infrastructure.Ocean City High School will use a $5000 National Fish & Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) grant to develop a new cross-disciplinary curriculum over the next year.The grant is titled “Building Ecological Solutions to Coast Community Hazards” and is part of a statewide project to design and build infrastructure with improved resilience. The grant comes in response to Hurricane Sandy. It will address relevant coastal problems like storms, increased precipitation and sea level rise.The New Jersey School Board Association (NJSBA) is working closely with the Department of Environmental Protection and the New Jersey Audobon to make the NFWF grant have a lasting impact by educating future generations on resilience and sustainability. NJSBA Executive Director Lawrence S. Feinsod reached out to Ocean City School District Superintendent Kathleen Taylor in June 2015 with the invitation to participate in the grant. The Ocean City Board of Education passed a resolution to participate in the grant in a meeting that month.The new curriculum will emphasize real world application of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM education). Students will learn about sustainable infrastructure in the classroom and visit a municipal site in Strathmere to record data and observations during four field trips planned for the year.A team of three to five teachers from across the disciplines will be picked to lead students in the new program. These teachers will attend summer training sessions that will focus on curriculum development. A professional development day is planned for February. Teachers will go over the curriculum and visit the Strathmere site.
