On Monday morning in Frankfort, Gov. Ernie Fletcher announced the statewide launch of the Kentucky Community Preparedness Program, beginning in 15 small- to medium-sized Kentucky cities this month. Those cities – including four in Northern Kentucky – will undergo detailed community security assessments, similar to that undertaken in Alexandria during the first test run of the program in July 2003. That pilot program’s success in identifying vulnerable crime and terrorism targets and increasing community emergency preparedness prompted state leaders to expand the program to 60 other communities in the year ahead. “This program will help ensure Kentucky is prepared to respond to a potential emergency and allow families to feel more secure in their communities,” Fletcher said. “By giving each community their own ‘preparedness playbook,’ we will ensure the various security issues surrounding our commonwealth’s infrastructure are addressed.”

One can still keep the costs down by comparing quotes and finding a solicitor who offers fixed-fee conveyancing. Most Conveyancers’ fees increase as the property prices rise. With fixed-fee conveyancing the legal fees are the same whatever the price of the property – a considerable saving on high- priced properties. Not only solicitors carry out conveyancing sydney. A licensed conveyancer quoted dollars of some petty amount for the sale, dollars for the purchase and some very little amount for the mortgage work.


The assessment of the Kentucky Community Preparedness Program extends to address all levels of threats to community safety and security, including vulnerabilities in everything from infrastructure to individual self defense preparedness. Four Northern Kentucky cities – Dayton, Fort Wright, Carrollton and Maysville – are on the list of the first 15 communities scheduled to be assessed in the new program. Ward said residents, city employees and businesses in those four communities can anticipate a candid, objective evaluation of their vulnerabilities and needs, as well as substantial rewards for taking actions to remedy those problems.

“In the most serious crimes, there was about a 43 percent decrease – compared to ‘02,” Ward said of Alexandria’s returns on improvements made after assessment in the pilot program. “I’m going to attribute about 60-70 percent of that to (the city’s participation in the community preparedness program). It caused us, as a command staff, to sit down and look at the way we do things.”

Conveyancers sydney prepare the documentation required for the purchase and sale of real estate and attend to property settlements. Conveyancers must have a sound knowledge of land law, land division, surveying, property development, property management, strata administration, insurance, taxation, business analysis, investment and contracts. Conveyancers may communicate with clients, real estate agents, banks, building societies and finance companies, as well as government departments and rating authorities.

We all love pets and just like all of us; they deserve a house of their own too, don’t they? Some of such innocent pets however end up on streets and often neglected, forget getting fed decently. The disadvantages of this behavior of us and fate of pets are more and more pets on streets, often attacking the young children’s since they lack proper training or enough food supplies. They don’t necessarily need to live their life as wild pets.


There is a way out, and a pretty decent one to provide these pets or dogs their forever homes. What these animals need the most is sterilization, vaccinations, and tests for Heartworm and fecal worm’s treatments so as to be able to dissolve in our culture uninterruptedly.

To begin to do your bit for such pets is not as hard as it seems to begin with. There are various ways to save abandoned street dogs. One such solution is to open a community pet care centre in every locality, where the dogs of the nearby vicinity reside and taken care of, trained and fed without any discrimination or fear.

The operations of such a community centre can be taken care by the generous monetary contributions of the entire community or even the local municipal corporations.

A certified conveyancer is the first contact for buyers of a land or a property space to search for a vendor of the same; they also prepare contracts, draft sale deed agreements and provide services ranging from contract prep stage to settlement of the deal.

It is a must to have extracted all the crucial information from the seller before entering the contract prepared by the seller, for this, the conveyancer of a purchaser is very well competent to liaise with the vendors agents and solicitors.

Property conveyancing companies also provide leasing services and deal well with the local authorities and government revenue departments. The entire gamut of formalities involved in securing a property space can easily and authoritatively be dealt by a licensed conveyancer.

Such an activity to create a community pet’s shelter center should actually be our prime responsibility towards our younger generation who expect a safe and empathized society where even the pets receive equal love and care.
