PRESENTATION STRATEGY FOR TOURISM DEVELOPMENT OF IMOTSKA KRAJINA PRESENTED A year ago, there was a merger and synergy of tourist destinations into one brand – the tourist community of Imotski Krajina – Imotski, and a little over a month ago in Imotski was presented the Tourism Development Strategy of Imotski Krajina until 2025, the implementation of which should provide essential a better tourist step forward and the opening of the entire area of Imotski Krajina to more and more segments of tourist demand. Thus, the tourism workers of Imotski Krajina made two important decisions and received two important documents as the first prerequisites for strategic development, at least on paper, and now it is up to tourism workers and destinations to follow the direction defined and implement everything in the next six years. . Prices have changed slightly compared to last year and now amount to: 10 kn per person – group children, 15 kn per person – children individually, 20 kn per person – group adults and 30 kn per person – adults individually. And of course the unavoidable “photopoint” of tourists, both for the whole of Imotski and for Blue Lake.

The fortress was built in the 10th century and has had an extremely strategic significance throughout history. The patroness of the Imotski region is Our Lady of the Angels, and the church of the same name is located in the vicinity of the fortress. The fortress was under Turkish rule for more than 200 years. Today, this fortress is a favorite lookout point, and in summer it hosts various cultural events. The city of Imotski started collecting tickets for the lakes and the Topana fortress on May 01st.

The urban Congress won’t support a crop program without food stamps.”Side note to liberals: Please ignore the stupid food box idea cooked up by Trump’s Agriculture Department.“America’s Harvest Box” would be a government-selected carton of edibles that would replace cash to buy food. It was created to drive liberals crazy. Don’t fall for the distraction.The budget’s proposed slashing of State Department funding by 23 percent is another bad omen for farm country.America’s diplomats devote over a third of their communications pushing U.S. exports, according to one analysis.With Trump pulling the U.S. out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership and threatening the North American Free Trade Agreement, America’s farmers and ranchers are going to need all the support from Washington they can get.Flinchbaugh considered TPP the most lucrative deal for farmers in his lifetime. By rejecting it, he said, “the president has played right into the hands of the Chinese.” Losing markets in Canada and especially Mexico would be devastating.“I’ve been predicting ag policy for 50 years,” Flinchbaugh noted. “It’s never been more difficult than under this administration.”The strange reality is that good, hardworking farm people helped elect the man currently dismantling their economy.They might spend less time watching Fox News herald the magnificence of Donald J. Trump and more time weighing their own economic interests.How is it they became such an easy sacrifice?Froma Harrop is a nationally syndicated columnist.More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen? The budget plan contains other spending reductions that could do considerable harm to farmers.One would cut what used to be called the food stamp program by 30 percent. Contrary to a common belief, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program was not designed to be a free ride for lazy poor people. Most of the recipients are low-income workers, many trying to feed children. Others are disabled or elderly.The food stamp program is important to farmers for political reasons.Farm bills pass thanks to a coalition of representatives from rural and urban areas.The more numerous urban reps would see little value in passing expensive bills serving farm country were it not for the food stamps that help their poor constituents.Trump’s plan would take SNAP benefits away from 4 million people.As Barry Flinchbaugh, veteran ag economist at Kansas State, recently told a convention of grain growers in Manhattan, Kansas: The worldwide grain glut has hammered prices. Russia and Brazil, meanwhile, are taking market share from American grain producers. (Small wonder the Russians love Trump.)The budget would do several things that would further hurt the farm economy.The obvious one would be to chop $47 billion from the federal crop insurance and other farm programs over 10 years.Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., said Trump had personally promised him not to cut crop insurance.Trump not keeping his sacred word? Imagine our surprise.The Northern Ag Network reports that some farmers think agriculture has been disproportionately targeted in the budget cuts.“When you look at the agriculture in the scheme of things of the overall federal budget,” North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring complained, “we are decimal dust.”

The first damaged submarine cable which was laid on the riverbed along the channel of the Demerara River and connects to the Vreed-en-Hoop and Kingston Power Stations is currently undergoing repairs and mariners are being cautioned to exercise extra care in the area.A vessel that disrupted the second GPL submarine cableIn a notice published in the daily newspapers by the Maritime Department, it was revealed that these works commenced on June 8.It will see the submarine cables being laid as well as “pile driving activities across the Demerara River from Princes Street Outfall, Georgetown, to Vreed-en-Hoop Ferry Stelling”.These works are expected to last for a seven-day period and should be completed by Saturday if all goes well.This operation will be conducted using the vessels M/T Mindy Lynn, M/T Red Dawn and D/B Marine.“During this period, four wooden piles would be installed within this restricted area and would be fitted with lights showing the characteristic FL Q Y (Quick Flashing Yellow Light),” Maritime said.Moreover, it warned that these vessels will remain on site for the duration of the project so mariners are warned to navigate with caution when in the area.The 69kV submarine cable on the riverbed along the channel of the Demerara River, and connecting it’s Vreed-en-Hoop and Kingston Power Stations was the first cable to be damaged.A recent examination revealed no further damage on the cable.As previously reported, investigations conducted on Wednesday, June 5, revealed a compromised section of the cable approximately 0.7 km offshore from its Kingston operations.Officials from the China Machinery Import and Export Corporation (CMC) were a part of GPL’s efforts to retrieve and examine the submarine cable.In the interim, the utility company is continuing to engage MARAD in identifying an alternative route to lay a 13.8kV submarine cable along the Demerara River, in an effort to reconnect the Vreed-en-Hoop operations to the eastern sections of the Demerara-Berbice Interconnected System. Both entities are also engaged in discussions regarding establishing improved maritime conduct within proximity of the submarine cables.The second GPL submarine cable was disrupted on Thursday due to another maritime accident that occurred four days after the disruption of the 69kV submarine cable.This 13.8kV submarine cable, which rests along the upper Demerara River within proximity of Craig, East Bank Demerara, was dislodged by a barge sailing along the Demerara River.As a result of this incident, West Demerara customers from Vriesland to La Retraite were without electricity while efforts were underway to alternatively power these customers from the Vreed-en-Hoop Substation.According to a release from GPL, the dislodged cable was located on Thursday afternoon by deep-water divers, and efforts are being made to hoist and examine it for damages.
