“We want to put a public park in where people could go rock climbing, biking, hiking and we can create a pollinator refuge,” explained Tiffany Harvey, executive director of the Friends of the Lower Muskingum River, a 501c3 nonprofit which works on environmental conservation in Washington County.,Commissioner Kevin Ritter explained both in a public statement published to his Facebook page and in a private interview Thursday that while he supports the idea FLMR has for the property, he takes issue with the approach and state funding structure.,“If we remove land from the inventory this way, we remove money from the tax base,” he explained Thursday, assuming that purchasing the property through the Clean Ohio Fund would remove the parcels from taxable real estate within the county.,Washington County Auditor Matthew Livengood said Friday that the current annual property tax on the property is $1,086, a rate which would stay in place if the nonprofit purchases the property regardless of what funds, public or private, are used.,Harvey said in response to Ritter’s Facebook statement Thursday that she doesn’t agree on all points, arguing that businesses invest in areas where there are higher property values, the property in question has been on the market for six years with no takers and disagreeing on the philosophy not to use conservation funds in place for the public.

But she says the real challenge in her family is screen time.,“To get them to be healthy, we have to keep fighting their screen time urge.”,Pat Jesten says she feels comfortable with the screen time her teenage son Chris gets.,When it comes to the right amount of screen time, exercise, and sleep, research published this month in JAMA Pediatrics finds only 5% of teens are meeting guidelines, and girls are less likely to do so than boys.,All children between the ages of 6 and 18 should get at least 1 hour of moderate to vigorous aerobic exercise a day, and should limit screen time and exposure to all screen-based digital media to less than 2 hours in a 24-hour period.

My “home” location — on North Fourth Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, next to the Whole Foods across from the Apple store — was proposed to me, by WeWork’s unusually thoughtful and candid public-relations representatives, as a particularly strong example of the company’s “community layer” at work.,She knows when the printer by the sunglasses and accessories manufacturer is going to run out, and when Ulrik, the chief executive of the Danish software-platform company that is the location’s largest tenant, is arriving on a red-eye and will require early-hours access.,It was the idea of her own office, which she selected before the space had a floor, that gave her the confidence to start a business — a common sentiment at WeWork and one I heard particularly often from women and people of color — and on move-in day, she hung up her shingle as a private C.P.A. Though she never advertised, she quickly outgrew herself; she told me that 90 percent of her customers have come through WeWork, either via hallway run-ins or through the social-networking features of its mobile app.,As of this January, WeWork has 400,000 members in 425 locations in 27 countries, at least 30 percent of whom are employees of large existing businesses.,The conviction behind the rapid growth of WeWork is that the office culture of the future is likely to be the culture of the future, full stop, and that it is WeWork’s special vocation to bring it to market.
