Cardinals have 11th cheapest ticket in NFL

Despite their recent run of success and being seen as a Super Bowl contender this season, cheap jerseys the Arizona Cardinals are still managing to have a relatively cheap ticket.

A study done by VividSeats revealed that the median price for a ticket to a Cardinals game is $144, the 22nd cheapest ticket among all NFL teams.

University of Phoenix Stadium has four different groupsof pricing for their games: Preseason, prime, premium and marquee. The two marquee games on the schedule are against the New England Patriots in Week 1 and the division rival Seattle Seahawks in Week 7. The median price of $260 for the home opener against New England is twice as much as four other games on the schedule.

Five of the eight games on the home schedule in the regular season are either premium or marquee. The three games under the cheapest group prime are against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints.

Carbon tax should be killed

In reality, the vast majority of British Columbians would be better off if the carbon tax was killed, not repurposed. NDP transportation critic Harry Bains recycled the old “use carbon tax cheap jerseys for transit” plan a spin as predictable as a cheap hit by a Boston Bruin. Last year, the TransLink area mayors approved another two cents per litre gas tax for transit and upped property taxes. The transit commissioner has decided on a different tact, putting together a plan to examine TransLink’s bus service for cost savings. The mayors, on the other hand, simply took TransLink staff at their word, choosing to believe that every loonie of the $1.36 billion it spent in 2010 was fully maximized. If the commissioner’s experts follow up on research by the media and the not for profit Canadian Taxpayers Federation, along with tales from the riding public, there should be some significant cost savings that can be realized in this process. The commissioner’s approach is the correct one not immediately raising fares, rubberstamping increased taxes, or reallocating the carbon tax. drivers are already overtaxed, with much of that money flowing to transit. In the Lower Mainland, governments collect 50 cents of tax on every litre of gas pumped, 17 cents of which goes directly to TransLink. Giving TransLink access to another 7.7 cents per litre in carbon tax is unacceptable. The carbon tax is revenue neutral for the provincial government. law, every penny collected in carbon tax must be returned to taxpayers through corresponding tax cuts. So the idea of using the carbon tax means rolling back those savings. It’s a tax increase to pay for transit. While the carbon tax is revenue neutral for government, it certainly isn’t for taxpayers. Some are hit harder than others by the tax shift workers, ranchers and farmers, delivery drivers, rural and suburban residents and those with no access to transit. The corresponding tax cuts do little to mitigate those costs for those people indeed, the carbon tax is really a tax shift off urban dwellers and on to the rest of the province. That’s why it’s unfair to use the carbon tax for transit. One cannot expect drivers in Lac La Hache to fund transit systems in communities they never visit. Even if an NDP government allocated carbon tax revenue to be spent within the communities they are collected, it’s still unfair to the driver who has no option but to take a vehicle. That’s a significant number of disenfranchised taxpayers paying for a service they do not use. Drivers already pay for transit at the gas pump. Adding cost to those items hurts both business and consumers. government can figure out what to do with it. The best solution is not to hand it over to transit bureaucracy it’s to kill it and give taxpaying drivers 7.7 cents of relief at the pump. JORDAN BATEMAN Canadian Taxpayers Federation.

Carbon tax has Albertans worried

Office Manager Carlene Wetthunh said up until now coal heating has been an economical option.

when we looking at an 80 to 85 per cent increase in the cost of that, it not, maybe, as cost effective as it was before. Jan. 1 coal costs $42 per tonne. When the carbon tax comes in it brings a price hike of $35.39 spiking the price per tonne to $77.39.

Wetthunh told Global News that many of their customers are angry, and some are afraid for the future.

matter what your income is, whether you can afford it or not, it still a big increase in your costs and your bottom line is going to be affected by that. We hearing that a lot from our customers; maybe it won be effective for them to burn coal anymore. Either way though they looking at an increase in their costs whether they burn coal or they burn natural gas cheap jerseys or whatever you use. added that many of their customers don have a natural gas line run to their property. Those without the option would have to spend tens of thousands of dollars to convert, and many are simply not in a financial position to make that change.

Rudy Froese is a poultry farmer and he burns 500 tonnes of coal every year. He figured the carbon tax will add $40,000 to his operating expenses in 2017. He cued up more than 2 hours Thursday to get his last load of carbon tax free coal.

cut costs in other areas that you have, and you just take it. I mean, there nothing we can do about it. isn alone in his disdain for the carbon tax, Duane and Bev Ronsko were picking up their last load of cheap coal. They operate Bluesky Trailer Manufacturing where they burn $900 worth of coal every month. They said the carbon levy has them forced to pass on the additional costs to their customers or contemplate an early retirement.

not sure about all our freight charges that are coming in for a lot of the tires and paint and raw products we get in. We told we going to get a carbon levy on top of our freight so that gonna add on. said the Dodds coal mine did as much business in December as they do in three ordinary months while customers race to stock up before the carbon tax nearly doubles the price of coal.

For now it seems that the only winner when it comes to the carbon tax is the mine providing the coal. Their days are also numbered, with Alberta set to phase out coal fired electrcity by 2030.

I cannot understand why so many Albertans are worried about a 5 % carbon tax when we are being hit by another levy, as much as 4 times the carbon tax, on some fuels, and which gives nothing back. Let me explain. Fuels are trucked by tanker to facilities where it is sold by operators of convenience stores and gas bars. And we expect that is costly and we do not know how costly so we wince and pay because we have no alternative. Right? Fuels have the same cost to vend at gas bars anywhere in the province with the exception of the cost of transport. Most gasoline and diesel is now trucked in 80,000 litre tankers. That tanker cost to move the fuel 500 km is less than $2000 or less than $2 on 80 litres or 2.5 cents per litre. Who is making the extra 20 cents per litre on fuels sold north oh Whitecourt, $14,000 per truckload, for which we are receiving nothing. I live in the Peace country and have had a 25 year budget of 300 per month for vehicle fuels. I don care about the carbon tax, there are good plans for that money. How much too much have I paid in that time with this hidden transportation bill that is many times too high.

carbon monoxide detectors are critical

Two Valley heating business experts are asking homeowners and landlords to check cheap jerseys their furnaces at least once a year and to install carbon monoxide detectors in their homes.

Brian Kapp, owner of Brian’s Heating Electrical in Mifflinburg for 20 years, and Glenn Holler, owner of Glenn Holler Chimney Sweep in Middleburg for nearly 40 years, spoke with The Daily Item after news of the apparent carbon monoxide death of Princess Kianna Adeago, 17, in New Columbia. State Police in Milton have not yet released what kind of furnace malfunctioned on New Year’ Day that lead to Adeago’s death and three other victims hospitalized.

No matter the type of furnace whether it’s wood, coal, oil or other fossil fuel both Kapp and Holler said that the furnace should be checked at least once a year.

“You should have the furnace cleaned yearly by a licensed professional. If you do it yourself, sometimes you can cause more damage if you don’t know what you’re doing,” Kapp said.

It’s particular important with solid fuels, and if maintenance is done properly, a furnace expert should be able to tell if there’s a problem, Holler said.

Between 1999 and 2010, a total of 5,149 deaths from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning occurred in the United States, an average of 430 deaths per year, according to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The toxic gas is difficult to detect and can cause sudden death because it’s odorless, tasteless and colorless.

That’s why it’s important to install carbon monoxide detectors, Kapp and Holler said.

Holler said he is “disturbed” by the news because such malefactions shouldn’t happen with today’s technology.

“Carbon monoxide detectors are cheap, but what’s the price of saving a life?” Holler said.

When Holler first started in the business, such alarms weren’t reliable or cheap, but that’s no longer an issued today, he said.

According to the CDC, the most common symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion. High levels of inhalation can cause loss of consciousness and death.

Carbon levy punishes Albertans for doing what they need to do

Your town hall called my home. This is the gist of what I would have asked/said had I had time to speak, and what I would have left on the voice mail if the town hall system had not, instead, simply hung up.

The carbon levy takes far more from us than we will ever receive in rebate.

The customer will pay the levy that compounded through the chain from farm to retailer: the farmer price (including overhead) plus levy costs; the processor overhead, mark up and processing costs plus levy costs; the wholesaler overhead, mark up and levy costs; the retailer overhead, mark up and levy costs.

You mentioned grants for people to upgrade their homes for energy efficiency. This offers nothing to renters. We cannot upgrade property that we do not own. With housing prices so high, new home buyers will face an obstacle to getting in. With jobs being shaky, with bankruptcies, people will lose homes and have to rent. Renters are prisoners of the condition of their homes.

I and my family have no prospect at all of becoming home owners. We live in housing that is cheap jerseys a throwback to an era when energy was cheap, and the heat leaks right out as though there is no ceiling. We have no choice but to keep the furnace running, generating revenue for your government (and carbon emissions) but not getting a rebate sufficient to cover what we have no choice but to spend. We do not want damaged, mouldy walls and ceilings from cold, nor our pipes to freeze. All you could do for us is offer the grant to our landlord as incentive to improve the roof and firewall insulation.

If a carbon levy is needed, it should be levied on non essential goods and activities: recreational vehicles (boats, RVs, snowmobiles and ATVs). Collect through the licensing, or fines for not having a licence.

There is no logic to punishing Albertans for doing what they need to do: eat, heat homes and drive to work, nor punish businesses for what they need to do: provide services, goods and jobs. since 2008 and working well, is so bad yet he ignores what Klein deregulation has done to this province? While the the Carbon Tax will actually benefit many Albertans, deregulation benefited absolutely no one other than rich friends of the Klein government, as former MLAs have pointed out to me.

I would rather pay the Carbon Tax than watch our Province face the massive lawsuits pollution could bring us if we don try to do something about our pollution. Wouldn you?

What Mr. Capp seems to be suggesting is that we keep our heads in the sand, ignore climate change and the thousands of oil spills in Alberta; ignore wildlife habitat destruction, health issues, water, air and soil pollution/destruction. Where is the morality in that? This evil and fossilized kind of thinking is a recipe for death. Why not disengage from the status quo and work on protecting the environment and opening the door to a green economy? That the future those of us who care about the planet are working towards.

Mr. Capp: Please produce evidence for your statement that: town hall called my home. This is the gist of what I would have asked/said had I had time to speak, and what I would have left on the voice mail if the town hall system had not, instead, simply hung up.

You are implying that you were personally blocked from commenting because a phone call inconvenienced you, and thus, you had only one recourse submit a letter to the editor lamenting your financial predicament. Given that you are the flagship of the Christian Heritage Party of Canada (Lethbridge Riding), a party that has systematically campaigned against social assistance in any form, it does seem somewhat ironic that you are now claiming financial crisis. It is utterly disingenuous of you to now complain that you and yours can pay your rent because of the carbon tax and my family have no prospect at all of becoming home owners. Last time I checked, you had more than enough funds to purchase a home. Or are you saying that all this time you never owned property, never paid taxes, never bought a vehicle? What about that whole tax exemption for religious institutions.
